The IMF has begun discussions on contingency plans for a rescue loan to Spain should the country be unable to bail out its banking system, according to sources. Left unsaid is who is going to bail out the IMF as a rescue of Spain is surely beyond the agency's current resources.

    The IMF (International Monetary Fund) will have to be bailed out by the IMF (Intergalactic Monetary Fund), I guess.

    We could start with Chrisbitcha Haggarde's unpaid taxes. Donate them to the IMF.

    They can't be all that delusional. Or is it that the EU must be preserved at all cost to keep the NWO thingy on track?

    ...and the market indexes oblige, spiking up off the early lows, on the basis of what? This beginning of a discussion about contingency plans to theoretically bail out Spain's banks, if necessary and then, if possible, and politically feasible to do so?

     

    We're standing knee-deep in it, folks, and they're still pumping it in.

    Soon we'll have a new "SCHEME" defined. It will be proposed and batted around for a week or two, then deposited on the pile of all the rest of the "SCHEMES". Someone please tell me how you say "Default" in Spanish and Italian.

    Mark Zuckerberg could have bailed out Spain if his Facebook stock wouldn't have tanked.
