Below our finance expert John de Roe analyses the latest bureaucratic scam that claims to have saved the European single currency but in reality is only another attempt to scam German taxpayers.

Eurogeddon Postponed Termporarily Due To Financal Conjuring Tricks

by John de Roe
12 August 2011

Euroggedon has been temporarily averted again. Jean-Claude Trichet, head of the European Central Bank (ECB) has arrived Superman - like in the nick of time to save the world. There will not be a bond crisis spiralling out of control in Italy and Spain in early August after all. An imminent meltdown of Europe’s financial system has been averted. Until September.

At first glance this looks good but not great. Ultimately European bureaucrats and central banker will have to face up to the fact that the Euro (the European Single Currency) can only be saved by engineering the departure from the community of nations that make up the Eurozone. A German exit from EMU would halt the debt-deflation spiral in PIIGS countries (Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece, Spain,) and clear the way for economic recovery to get under way.

Saying that is easy of course, getting it done is a tad more difficult. Unless the ECB is willing to embrace its new role as lender-of-last-resort by making massive purchases of dodgy looking Italian and Spanish debt, it will inevitably be tested in the financial markets. Weaker investors will use temporary rallies to offload holdings onto the ECB, i.e. onto eurozone taxpayers. Frankfurt will find itself underwater very quickly without a legal mandate or EU treaty authority.

Royal Bank of Scotland calculates that the ECB will have to buy roughly half the outstanding negotiable debt of the two countries to defend the single currency. RBS calculates €850bn. I would put it nearer €1 trillion. Unfortunately The ECB does not have any money and is acting as a temporary back-stop until the revamped EFSF bail-out fund is ratified by all parliaments over coming months.

Again that looks simple until we remember the EFSF has no money either. The parliaments of Eurozone nations have not even ratified the earlier boost to €440bn. As of today, the fund has barely €80bn left after all the commitments to Greece, Ireland, and Portugal. The rescue plan is more a fantasy novel than a plan.

As for boosting the fund further to €2 trillion or more – as suggested by Citigroup, RBS, and the European Parliament – we face a little local difficulty across the Rhine,France currently being in trouble itself, Austria being a no no because of the Micawberish eccentricities of local economics, Holland becoming more sceptical about the single currency by the day and Finland and Luxembourg the last of the Eurozone's solvent nations being tiny. With Germany the only nation capable and willing to bail out the Euro yet again, the provincial government of Bavaria, the Social Christians said they will not back one bent Pfennig for extra bail-outs, and the Angela Merkel's coalition partners in the Federal government, the FDP Free Democrats are almost of the same mood. Angela Merkel’s own Christian Democrat Union base grows more restless with every new economic problem that is announced. In any case, such an expansion of the EFSF would set off its own chain-reaction as France and then Germany lost their AAAs and plunged into the debt spiral abyss.

So, obviously markets will turn very nervous once ECB purchases approach the level that corresponds to the EFSF ceiling. They know that the ECB’s German members will fall on their swords rather than cross that line, taking the bond risk directly onto the ECB’s own balance sheet. Falling on swords could commence by the beginning of September as interest payments, become due and another trance of debt has to be refinanced. Gary Jenkins from Evolution Securities has noted that Greek yields fell from 12.43pc to 7.35pc in the week following the ECB’s first bond purchases, only to fly out of control six weeks later.

Whether buying time can solve anything depends on whether investors believe that Italy and Spain can grow their economies sufficiently quickly to break out of the debt traps they find themselves in. If we were on the cusp of a new global boom, then Italy and Spain can make it within EMU’s current structure but all the economic indicators suggest we are heading for another global recession..

If we do go into a global double-dip (defined as global growth below 2.5pc), they have no chance at all unless the ECB throws all caution to the wind, defenestrates the two German members from the top floor of the Eurotower, and embarks on a programme of Quantitative Easing that will have us all taking a wheelbarrow load of cash to buy a box of matches..

Germany might not like that prospect so despite all the talk from Bureaucrats and politicians, nothing whatsoever has been resolved by the latest plan to save the world..

Happy Days Are Here Again: Potential New Eurozone Crisis Threatens EU Recovery
The old song "Happy Days Are Here Again" comes to mind as financial news feeds report "Eurozone market wobbles, bank and sovereign jitters.

Yesterday a "mild global sell-off" in the far eastern bond markets was triggered by fears that the liquidity woes at Portugal's Banco Espírito Santo "could spark another sustained bout of eurozone debt angst,"

Everything The Science Whores Told You About Eating Fat Was A Lie.
We have been telling you so for years, but at last the world seems to be cathing up with The Daily Stirrer. Another independent study confirms that the scientists ('A sack of rogues bought and paid for with corporate gods' to paraphrase Burns) have been lying about the health risks of eating saturated fat. It's process vegetable fat, created in laboratories by scientists and other synthesized foods that damage human health.

What Would George Orwell Think Of The Screeching Left's Horror At Plans To Shrink The State. In part one of his classic social commentary, The Road To Wigan Pier, George Orwell wrote of the grinding poverty and appalling living conditions endured by people in industrial areas. The second part, which is more revevant to the 21st Century is a rant against the superiority of the upper class 'Fabian' socialists who have hijacked the Labour movement and whose Paternal Liberalism is in almost all ways more repugnant that the uncaring attitude of the old elite.

What Will It Take to Get You to Swallow GMO and Nanotech Foods?

Are you one of these "new technology rejecters"? Apparently you will be given such a label soon if you don't want GMOs or nanoparticles in your food, just as those who ask can the 1.6% contributed by human activity of the carbon dioxide that makes up 0.025% of the atmosphere really be the sole cause of the changes in our climate which has been constantly changing for millions of years before men first stood erect.

Evolution: Theory, Fact or Fiasco?
Much as I have faith in Charles Darwin's Theory Of Evolution as a feasible explanation of how diverse species originate (The Origin Of The Species) it annoys me when science fans insist "Evolution is not a theory, its a fact." Especially annoying of course is when they cite evolution to explain the origin of life on earth or the development of human intelligence. Even more annoying is their assumption that anyone questioning them is a young Earth creationist. Here are a few thoughts on some of evolution theory's inconsistencies ...

Why Food Sovereignty Should Not Be Handed To GMO Biotech Corporations
Most of the GM produce that is finding its way into the human food chain has been modified to make it resistant to herbicides (weed killer) and pesticides (insect killer) that are deadly to humans - just look at the warnings on a packet of garden weed killer or domestic fly spray if you want proof of that. And remember in bulk food production we are talking about industrial quantities of industrial strength toxins. Scientists on the corporate payroll assure us ...

Are Humans Becoming Extinct
some scientists, Guy McPherson included, down at the Climate Change conference who fear that climate disruption is so serious, with so many self-reinforcing feedback loops already in play, that humans are in the process of causing our own extinction.
