  • China's Monumental Debt Trap - Why It Will Rock The Global Economy [View article]
    One only can assume that debt is a problem if there is ever any real and rational reason that one assumes debt must be repaid. There are many corporations today whose capital structure includes debt that will never be repaid. It may be rolled over, but will never be repaid. The issue may be whether sovereign debt can be economically rolled over.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: GDP Figures Lead Europe Higher [View article]
    In my view, pretty much the best part was the video montage at the end of the movie of actual footage of events surrounding funeral. That was very moving.

    Seems like I have a trillion pennies laying around. Once I have them they all go in the drawer(s). No, not THOSE drawers.

    Please...Billions sitting around rotting in Swiss Banks, will now be spent on Stocks and Ferrari's. So where does the CASH go? It just migrates from the Swiss Bank holder's account to the Ferrari account or the Brokerage account or to the previous stock owner's account who the Swiss Bank account holder bought stock from. Cash doesn't disappear, unless the SNB or the FED brings it home and burns it.

    Chudzikb - 5 brownie points and a couple kudo's. I was wondering how long it would take for someone to come up with the answer. I love the Geico commercial at the Zoo with all the folks haranguing the camels in their "habitat".

    Yes, the US can buy Greece, but why would we want a 51st state so far away - and we already have too many people on SNAP.

    I am currently leaning for the "rents to da-n high" guy. Pragmatic approach to government. Probably knows a lot about foreign policy too.

    Thanks. It brings up the question in my mind as to what taxes were actually avoided....some paltry interest being paid by Swiss bank on deposits? There is also a voluntary disclosure responsibility on part of US taxpayer to disclose income sources.

    Just read the news article about HSBC from Reuters. Obviously absent, in my opinion, is any explanation of how "clients" were able to "avoid paying taxes" to some other country because of the dealings of the bank. Someone please explain. It certainly has to be more than a bank failing to report the existence of an account to some foreign country's tax authority?

    Good point. The issue is absolute growth (nominal) vs % growth.

  • China's Monumental Debt Trap - Why It Will Rock The Global Economy [View article]
    Who owns the debt of China. Is it people, corps, or China Government? If China prints $1 Trillion and exchanges it for highways, buildings, etc, then China has a new asset of infrastructure and what?

    If I print $1 Trillion and lend it to you to build Hong Kong and you build Hong Kong and default on the loan, then I own HK. In the US, we issue debt to "investors" (or the Fed), and then the government spends money. If the government defaults on debt, then the investor is left holding the bag, while the government owns the Aircraft Carriers. I don't think that's the way it works in China.
