Presenting The SchizEUphrenia

Tyler Durden's picture

While men are from Mars, and women from Venus, it would appear Europe's major political leaders are on totally different orbits when it comes to the future of the European experiment. Though there are come commonalities there is one glaring divide - the speed of deficit reduction - as Mont-and-oy differ from Merkel quite vehemently.

They definitely from Uranus

They may be from your anus butt they certainly aren't from mine.

Have you all seen the red screen that's up over at Steve Quayle's website? His international banking contact "V" (Steve has been posting his emails for the past year or so) says now that the "Euro has collapsed"

"Bail out Malfeasant Banks" should be dead center.

Add Balkanization of the Eurozone and those circles will only meet under "Bail out Banks" until the rings are ripped apart into separate orbits.

EIB, lol! Over 500 bn loan book with 11,6 bn paid in capital. Already HUGE exposure to Spain and Italy. EIB is owned by EU countries so any incremental capital needed will have to come from EU countries. How Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece etc are going to pay if EIB board calls in extra capital?

EIB in 2 words: PONZI SCHEME

OK Tyler and sage ZH'ers,


Will the market - including equities, EURUSD, etc. - wake up to that fact that Greek elections are Sunday- HELLLLLOOOO!!!!! - and tank/go "risk-off" big time?  Today or tomorrow, Gheez!!!!!!

flacon's picture

Everyone is sedated it seems. Someone slipped them the sleeping pills. 

BlandJoe24's picture

It's just so putridly "wrong"!  There "should" be a massive movement into "safety - risk/off" , including out of the EUR, ahead of Sunday's vote....     What I mean to say is that this rally is ripping my positions to shreds.... AGHHH!!!!  I keep telling myself to hedge (even have post its on my screen) , but keep not doing it...i think it's a primal resistance to supporting the uterly irrationally insane!!!!!!!!   hope i learn before getting completely crushed!

junkyardjack's picture

Greek elections don't matter.  Everyone is waiting for Wednesday.  We know Europe is in trouble, no one cares, when Bernake gives his signal we'll get a real market move.  As for now its up and down or soaring and smackdowns on here....

BlandJoe24's picture

I predict (ie: guessing) ZH post title today or tomorrow:


"Markets Wake Up to Greek Elections on Sunday, Panic Ensues (Risk OFF, EURUSD Plunges)"

I may be an idiot with my next remark, but to your question, isn't it true that about 1 billion people all over the world have their attention fixed on soccer and on nothing else?

CuriousPasserby's picture

It's a girly kind of football. All the soccer moms take their daughters there Saturdays.

Joe A's picture

In Europe we are busy watching 22 grown men chase a ball and the moment someone hase that ball, he kicks it away again. After that there is tennis, Tour de France and the olympic games. When that is all over, people in Europe find out there is no money left.

Is any orbit the same after its first orbit?

Can a rogue planet like Graecia cause orbits to resemble tailspins?

If this is a European orbit map, where is the big black hole?

timbo_em's picture

This picture is just wrong! France, Italy and Spain all want fiscal transfers, eurobonds and the ECB to restart their SMP. 

SDRII's picture

junk repos or SMP, its all semantics at this stage

kito's picture

that chart is bullshit, being that is was of course illustrated by a dying irrelevant bank....monti wants the same thing merkel wants, monti is of the same cloth as the rest of those tentacled monsters controling europe....they want the continuation of a one world europe that destroys culture, individuality, liberty....all to suck the people dry in order to consolidate power. the yellow part of the chart should read FEDERAL RESERVE OF THE UNITED STATES OF EUROPE. that is the only thing they care about, the only thing they are working to maintain.....i call bullshit that monti is in anyway different that merkel. bullshit...complete and utter..........

Stoploss's picture

I think Greece is getting ready to tell the EU to fuck off, because they are extremely pissed Spain is getting an unconditional bailout. Favoritism always changes everything.

This is back to square one shit right here..

Sophist Economicus's picture

Isn't this great!   60 years of creeping Statism, Socialism and Crony Capitalism and now, they're running out of other people's money and ideas of how to steal more (I include the US)...


Long live the Individual, bye-bye Statist pigs....

"they're running out of other people's money"

No, they aren't.  Not until:

1. They've taken every penny from you.


2. You revolt.

CommunityStandard's picture

They'll print until the money you have is close to worthless.

bubbleburster's picture

the thing about printing money that doesn't get enough positive acknowledgment is that a Government (like here in Canada) can spend huge amounts of money on desperately needed large cap projects (like in my home town) by helping your largest city get its subway line expanded.  It is money very well spent in my view and lets also remember that the thousands of jobs (both direct and downstream supply company jobs) all those working people pay taxes, which circulates back to the Federal government.  I have argued for years (without hard numbers to back it up and I'm sure some smart person has done a PhD on this) that every dollar that the government spends on capital projects is not entirely 1$ in extra national debt because as I say, a portion comes back in income tax and in Canada as harmonized sales tax on consumption. So, not absolutely all debts incurred by (at least my country) are badly created and spent.  Not by a large margin.  We have relatively superb highways, though our large cities have a gigantic unfunded infrastructure budget shortfall..  Some federal spending is wisely chosen, but not all. In Canada, recently, the Fed's were terribly embarressed at the leak of a document that showed our defence minister grossly underestimated the huge cost of buying a small fleet of fighter jets from the Yankees.  Some things do blow up in their faces. 

Winston Smith 2009's picture

"They'll print until the money you have is close to worthless."

Effectively the same thing as taking it.

Sophist Economicus's picture

Money, what money.   You see, I went on this boating trip and.....


And, BTW, I am quite revolting....

S_E is a reaganite

he is also independent, self-sufficient and could probably support a small town if he had to

your personal choices may not fit him as glibly as you think...

Winston Smith 2009's picture

Good, when he starts his revolution against the multi-trillion dollar taxpayer gravy train and gets anything more than the typical "lone lunatic" portrayal in the national media, I'll be less glib.  But he won't, they won't, and I won't.

TWSceptic's picture

Without a EU, this wouldn't have been a problem. Hollande would have been able to execute his ideas, Germany would continue theirs and we would be able to see what works and what doesn't. Thanks to the EU everyone is now forced in this union and the result will be catastrophic.

Russian Gen. Nikolai Makarov has created a political stir and generated a backlash from Finland and Sweden after he warned the neutral Nordic states that any moves to join or develop closer ties with NATO would be construed as hostile actions toward Moscow.

Please help.

I need this disseminated.

Talked to SEC etc..., and they say ok and then do nothing.

I have sent info to Zero Hedge and have yet to get a response.

Nice ovals instead of squiggly lines. Refreshing.

Somebody should have told Europe that you can't have the drunks in charge of the bar. The joint needs a bartender and he's obviously out to lunch.

Trying to compete with the broke and repo-ed USA Lounge across the street using the same methods is not a recipe for success. You don't have captured shareholders.

This shite is comic relief! Hey everyone let's sell dollars before the probably "leaked" shitty [ usd#'s ] tomorrow! The Fed. can print all they want. It will end up just like the Spanish " snailout"!

 Another "headline", another 1% move on absolutely NOTHING!  A bunch of "hopium" addicts, and nothing more. Sure p/e's are attractive. No one wants to play the game.
