Spain Urges Euro Fiscal Authority to End Crisis

Urged? Perhaps “begged” would be more apt. Either Germany goes all in for the single currency model or the model is blown to bits. I believe Germany will cave, but not until the get terms that are agreeable to them.

Documentary : Vox Populi – Methods of Manipulation

When i was a young pleb i would watch episodes of M*A*S*H* waiting for my mom to get home from work. Any way, the cast became a pseudo group of surrogate  parents and i would take lots of lessons to heart. The show was well written and witty.

I remember a saying from the show: “in order to understand what it means to be sane, one must be a little insane. You have to cross the line of sanity to know where it is.”

That is how i view this weeks documentary. There is good historical information to learn for those who are not up to speed with the gentlemanly knowledge that flies around these here interwebs. But some of you will say a tin foil hat will be needed to listen to these outrageous claims. I think that description is a way for people to deal with the world.

Put something in a box, label it, and you’ll always know how to deal with it. Bad philosophy imo. Once you do that, you leave it alone and never really examine it. Therefore if it changes you do not recognize it.

So call me what ever you like, but i enjoy exploring the outrageous and then going on a fact finding mission to discover how outrageous those claims are or not.

Cheers on your weekend !

Barton Biggs: Dismal Jobs Report Raises Chance of Recession to 40%

“The U.S. economy added a net 69,000 net nonfarm payrolls in May, way below expectations for around 150,000 jobs, which boosts the chance of a U.S. double-dip recession o 40 percent, says Barton Biggs, founder of the Traxis Partners LP hedge fund.

Jobs reports in March and April disappointed as well and were further revised downwards in the May data, sparking fears that the economy is experiencing something worse than hitting a soft patch.

“We were looking for a soft patch to last throughout the summer, but certainly the risks have now increased that this is not just a soft patch and that we may actually roll over into a mild double-dip recession,” Biggs tells CNBC.”

Pimco’s El-Erian: Grim Jobs Numbers Show Politicians ‘Losing Control’

May’s dismal jobs report shows that politicians in the U.S. and elsewhere are losing control and need to do more to guide the global economy back to more sustained health.

“Central banks have stimulated their respective economies to generate growth, but such moves send economies moving at stall speed, where like an airplane, they move too slowly to generate enough lift to keep aloft and end up stalling and tanking.

Such policies sure aren’t creating jobs, especially in the United States.”
