  • Wall Street Breakfast: Panic In China Reverberates [View article]
    Bob,
    "would we go "all in" and start WWIII ? For some obscure energy company that employs Biden's son?"

    Probably not, but annoying the Russian bear through his allies is much more rewarding than a frontal attack.
    Mind you, I dislike Putin's methods as much as everyone else, especially since he killed that Russian journalist in London with Polonium.
    However, the truth is, ever since 1989 with the fall of the Berlin Wall, Russia, or rather the USSR at the time, has lost quite a bit of it's influence: Eastern Europe, a large part of Ukraine, Georgia, and now Syria.
    Slowly the West is reducing the bear's habitat.
    From the point of view of Russia that must be frustrating and I perfectly understand their point of view, even if I acknowledge they're a nasty bunch and Putin is a dictator.

    DH,
    Try to put things into perspective.
    Brazilian economy is plunging fast and furious, and there's no hope for immediate recovery.
    Their exports (to China) fell off a cliff, their currency goes down by the minute, they face horrible inflation, their Public Debt is unsustainable, their budget control is out of control, the oil price plunge will kill them since they hardly have anything else.
    You see these things in the US ?
    I don't. There might not be much growth, if any at all, but at least there's no dramatic recession.

    Path,
    "The "Guy" isn't Crazy, He is a Muslim Terrorist."
    That's a tautology.

    gggl,
    The US CIA instigated the revolution on Maidan Square to annoy Russia, that's a fact, period. Biden's son at the time was CEO of an oil company looking for shale gas in East Ukraine, period.

    Then they forced the EZ, against their own interest, to implement these sanctions, period.
    Again, check your facts.

    gggl,
    F**k the islamists.
    Peaceful industrious people who flee their war-torn country are welcome. We all face negative birth-rate in the West that puts a drag on our economies. I see no reason why these people shouldn't get a chance to build a new future over here and help our economies in the same time.

    gggl,
    Lybia, Syria and Ukraine were by coincidence Russian allies that had to be destroyed to save the petrodollar.

    Don't be naive. Europe was not the one who has not been asking for those sanctions against Russia. It was the US. The EU was loyal to implement them against it's own interests. The EU by doing so has lost a $700 bn export market.

    gggl,
    "QE doesn't work and the fed knows it."
    That's not the point.
    The point is that rate hikes don't work either and that some people are convinced that massive QE would work.
    Ask the Japanese..

    Sleepless,
    How about the Brazilian govt today decided to send home a few ministries ?
    They haven't got the money to pay them anymore.
    That's what they call "deleveraging", embracing austerity.
    Wellcome to the new normal.

    RS,
    The sellers, no doubt HAD more money behind them.
    The Norwegian Pension Fund managed approx. $1T in assets:

    being the largest in Europe.
    Your call makes absolutely sense: they have less income through oil sales and they need the money to pay for pensions, hence they sell assets.

    MrStone,
    Everything goes faster these days than in the good ole days.
    That's the nice part of the story.
    The ugly side is that one has so much info to analyse and assimilate in a short time, that it drives people nuts.

  • Gold To Market: Are You Not Entertained? [View article]
    Saw,
    Don't know much about philosophy, and your clarification didn't make me any wiser, so I looked it up at Wiki:

    It seems to be an issue in the US.

    Over here, not: people have private rights corporations don't have.

    Still, US job losses are partly a consequence of imploding industry and manufacturing due to an overvalued USD, the result of the petrodollar-mechanism.
    In contrast, Germany has no unemployment.

    gggl,
    "afterall they gave us the war in Libya, the war in Syria and the war in Ukraine."

    It's actually the US who want to fight Russia and their allies who started these wars.
    Europe is a mere spectator and has to face the problems of the hundreds of thousands of immigrants now.
    Check your sources.
