The Treasury treated the key players in the 2008 U.S.bailout regime to a private reunion dinner last night. Unfortunately, as the event was private, no insight can yet be gained over what the crew feels ought to be done about the European situation.

    Yes, it is a joke, also known as the U.S. federal government.

    Reinforce idiocy. That'll help going forward.

     

    These guys brought our country to it's knees. Let's bring them in and celebrate. Can there any longer be any question as to what is going on here?

    No its not a joke stop and think for a minute. Would 20 of the biggest financial people in the US get around to hang out socially? Most are competitors.

     

    Whats more likely. That they had a 2.5 year reunion or that they got down to business about Europe.

    The Europeans were on their way to dealing with their issues. Enter Timmy, and his promise to take their crasp onto our balance sheet, just like he did in America.

     

    Rather than deal with the problem, they just kicked the can down the road the same as has been done in the US. That's the last thing that Europe needs...an American style infuision of paper to reinforce the pretense that the way out of a debt crisis is to borrow more money.

     

    These countries are zombies. Their banks are zombies. You can either deal with the problem and move forward, or you can follow the US approach and simply pretend that there is no problem. It's been four years plus in the US. How's that working out?
