So if it's just a rumor, why did they need to dispell it?

Hilarious!  Keep it up Tyler.  Banks = fraud.  Fraud is a criminal offence.  Banksters need to go to jail.

Do you want to know why we're going into a deflationary depression.

Every bank in the fucking world is insolvent--sitting on a pile of shit.

You couldn't run the global printing presses fast enough to deal with that mountain of debt.

Big collapse on the way.

Sell the rumor, short the news.

That ought to be a game changer.

Damn bloggers. Of course I decided to let MS join my stable of shorts because of that blogger. It joined BAC and JPM, which are making me 20% and 10%, respectively. OH yeah, that long FAZ is doing ok too. Damn bloggers are the whole cause of it.

All fiat currency collapses have ended in hyper-inflation. Even then some things will deflate and others inflate. Staples and needs will hyper-inflate and discretionary will deflate. You won't be able to buy a bushel of grain with fiat but the spare TV won't be worth $5.

Throw in the value of the USD to Yuan after hyperinflation really sets in.

Realize Motts Apple Juice, ALL Walmart branded canned goods, Kraft Mac 'n Cheese and Gerber baby food is made out of the country, not to mention insulin, aspirin and bandages.

Ugly.  Everything we need will be out of reach, our labor (unless in unions/government, and those won't keep up forever) discounted.

99% of Americans, even here, refuse to see what truths our future holds.

Poverty, it seems remains as america's last and final growth industry. To the moon alice. Infinite growth.

We pledge allegiance to America

and to the 700 cable channels of which it spans

one nation under ben


with poverty and delusions for all.

As for Alliance Bernstein...I just recalled how I knew that name...

AB screwed over at least 1 IBEW* Local's investd pension funds, abt 4 years ago. The Local took the hit and eliminated the option to place funds into AB. Good riddance. IMO, personal experience, they scammed the Union workers' savings.

AllianceBernstein LP (NYSE: AB) is a US-based, global asset management firm, owned by the French insurance conglomerate, AXA

one culprit pats the others back

but someone has a monkey on his back

we learn that with AXA and its highly leveraged PE Business, there is another short candidate for the impending implosion

EU Banks Infected

Uploaded by on Sep 22, 2011

Fears about another global financial meltdown, continue to grow. Stocks plummeted today, with the Dow Industrial Average at one point falling as much as 527 points. In Europe, Standard & Poor's downgraded the ratings of seven Italian banks and headlines were running wild, about French banks looking for cash in the Mideast, although BNP's CEO denied those claims. This week finance ministers from the BRICS nations are meeting here in Washington at the IMF. But how much good could they really do? Economic Analyst, Gonzalo Lira weighs in.

I do the same. I find advertising so nauseating that if I couldn't filter out the ads, I'd have to stop using the internet. I am a very frugal person, but ZH is so worth the money. I don't support the advertising business model, but I do support ZH with direct contributions. I'll just add that I think the ZH advertising business model is more sensible (if the goal is reach a large number of people) than subscription services will ever be. Yes, there will be some fraction of people who will get the benefits of TD's work for free, but financial truth is a growth industry. Volume will overcome reductions in marginal returns. And then there are people like you and me who will just donate from time to time. All I can say is: long live ZH. And thank you Tyler(s) for all the work you do.

If you are getting porn ads then you've been doing research at the same sites as the SEC investigators are using.
