This week European leaders came together to ensure the stability of the European economy.
In the last months the news has been full of talk about European weak links and how wrong the single currency is. How Spain is weak and Italy is weak and how much debt French and Germany banks hold for Greece.

And yet in truth the real debt crisis exists somewhere outside Europe. In the same country that gave us swindling super banks and credit rating agencies which are not so good at rating toxic debt but much better at undermining European states capability to raise funds.
God Bless America!

"Republican House Speaker John Boehner has walked away from crunch debt ceiling talks at the White House with US President Barack Obama...

"Dealing with the White House is like dealing with a bowl of Jell-O," Mr Boehner said.

White House correspondents said Mr Obama looked visibly angry as he told reporters he, too, thought a deal had been close until Mr Boehner did not return a phone call made by the president earlier on Friday.

For the first time, Mr Obama publicly countenanced the possibility of the US not meeting its financial obligations.

"If we default, then we're going to have to make adjustments," he said (obama)."

A US president talking about defaulting :rolleyes2:, A bowl of Jell-o, not returning the president calls are these politicians or children?



Where are the rating agencies, why aren't they downgrading the US!

Yeah, the USA is bankrupt, and we Europeans have to bleed for it!
It's all an international banking conspiracy!

Europeans, take your destination in your own hands!
Refuse to trade in stocks, don't sell gold, boycott the Anglo-American-* Empire!

hmmm

they bind $ and E at 1,42-1,44 but both drop to other,
CHF reach 1,05 E and BRL to top,

i really wonder if Greece is trash with >CCC by some economical houses,
then someone who has 80% of the greek debt per capita why is still AAA???? and not just an A or B


well i do not know the climate at north EUrope,
but seems like DSK and the today scandal of Langarde with Bernand Tapi (olympique Marselle (Massaleia) president) that is published before 2 days has some connection.

Well, it makes no sense at all.

Italy has a bigger debt than Greece, Spain, Ireland and Portugal together, but gets away with it.
The USA has an all time debt, caused by the republican mess policy of Bush, but now the republicans are now pointing their finger at Obama. They are completely nuts!
The USA can't get off their debts for a long time. In a normal situation, it may take a hundred years.

But.. Maybe there is a global conspiracy to get the stock markets crashing, for a number of reasons.
An important reason might be, the Americans are creating a huge devaluation of the dollar to get rid of their debts.

Not to defend Bush, but deficits have increased dramatically under Obama. Most of the current debt accumulated under previous presidents, but Obama has run the largest deficits by far of recent presidents. So it's not completely nuts to blame Obama for much of this.

Right now the US has several options to get rid of its debts, but nobody seems genuinely interested. The best option would be deep military cuts and austerity, combined perhaps with targeted short-term tax hikes. Unfortunately, Republicans only want austerity and Democrats only want tax hikes (taken alone the worst option IMHO). So we may be looking at some quite damaging options, like inflation and default. Making the Federal Reserve destroy its bonds may be another solution, but I haven't heard it as being on the table, and I don't think the Fed is interested.

the bold follow an independent move.
example,

http://www.piraeusbank.gr/treasury/ECPopup.aspx?t=ECPopup.aspx&page=ExchangesCharts.ascx&quoteName=EUR%2fUSD&ric=EUR%3dX
that is the move of us $ and euro last 2 years

5053


and that is Euro and swiss frank last 2 years,

seems like market laws are divided to 2,
by watching the BRL (brazilian real) the last 6 years move we realizethat the case of argentina and imf is the one that stabilize Brl and puts it in strong currency
But the case of Canadian and Swiss currency is strange,
Cannadian over US $ and CHF equal Euro?

the game is strong, but seems that affected only Eu and USA,
Russia seems out of game,
while Australia New Zealand and South Africa seems to be more hard and strong currency than the bond US $ and Euro,
they both drop infront others, but they both bind last days at 1,42-4

seems like the ghost of Lehmans brothers is still on loose
stocks and papers destroy the economy of middle class

I am afraid of older situation,
the case Boom like 1928 times,
but this time at USA and Europe same time,

FOR first time in my life I have seen Gold > Platinum
gold 1780 /on
platinum 1770/on

Comparing with 1929 is useless, the situation is quite different, as most governments were not as endebted as they are now, and nor were people. The power of bankers has to be controlled, and when bankrupt, like in Ireland, they have to face their responsabilites and hit the dust. Another recession will see economies that were not considered at risk go down. A country like Germany, who lives off its exports is at risk when no one can afford to buy their products anymore. The euro proved to be an inadequate currency and has to be rethought in depth. Like it or not, a strong euro is not what Europe needs. The debt crisis was already an issue 15 years ago, but the European construction eclipsed it all. We all have been [email protected]@ed for the greed of a handful and the incompetence of another.
