A Schematic Of Japan's Entire Economy In One Chart

Tyler Durden's picture

We won't even pretend to claim we have any idea what is going on here. We know it's pretty and very detailed, so some intern definitely wasted lots of hours to plug goalseeked fund flow data (which is never accurate and is merely an estimated plug using actual calculated private fund flows) into this schematic demonstrating how the Japanese economy performed in the most recent quarter. We also know that while largely irrelevant, it would be useful for our own Federal Reserve to come out with something comparable.

More irrelevant propwash from the American MBA nerds at Goldman Sachs, Tokyo.

They will even clean The Bernank's ass after he finishes dumping fiat shit on the people. Sorry, I meant the banks.

Japanese economy. American economy. Watching the markets today, all I can say is, "What the Fuck" too.

I get it. It all doesn't really matter anyway!

I was thinking this was more of the Japanese economy (and everyone else's, for that matter)...

A bit O/T, but "Wayne Swan" (head of Australias Treasury) has been "down under", a bit too long! This ties in nicely with the post though, as Japan is Australias #2 trading partner.

 Tap business,if the link isn't direct. Article is on the front page of "business".

There's a typhoon coming into the picture North of the Philippines over the next several days that should push Chinese boats away from the area for a bit.

No word on Zerohedge and FT on the bankruptcy of the UK.

Today it is official. UK lose its AAA status in December.

UK budget deficit hits record for august and the FT calls it good news.

UK Retail sale down but that was because the Olympics (the same Olympics that was depicted as an economy booster)

We are all embers from the same fire.

The facts and the figures, they overwhelm and stifle everything that you thought you knew.

Wait a minute!  I think we've been duped.  Isn't that the troubleshooting flow-chart for the old Sony BETAMax?
