Earth is Going to Be Next

Recommended Posts

This is a moving on from the Italy is Going to be Next thread at


and related threads and discussions


...I hinted over there that it’s not Greece, it’s not Italy,… etc…. it’s not Europe … it’s the whole Earth bound up into one big continuing ‘next’


disturbing micro news





The system is being forced to acknowledge (but not really deal with) the debt, private and sovereign. It still only has to give occasional lip service to how the players will deal with each other when the derivatives issue must be contended with. (you know… the one with all the extra 0000000000’s on the end)

For now, the assumption is that the taxpayers (that’s you) will pay for the mistakes of the governments and businesses… even if you may have to be enslaved…




but ‘he’ should remember… if ‘he’ can, so can ‘we’.







just in case you want to think…



and finally having worked through all that micro crap setup...


at minute 6: etc

From within - killing 4,5, or 6 of the killer apps

Is Liquidity Resistance like Insulin Resistance?



...It's funny how the "Bernanke/European Central Bank Put" is ranked alongside gravity as a rule of Nature until markets roll over; then talk shifts from purring adulation of central bankers' godlike powers to panicky calls for another flood of liquidity/free money to "save" the market from the harsh reality of global recession.


The basic mechanism that is being overlooked is Liquidity Resistance. This is akin to insulin resistance, where insulin becomes less effective at lowering blood sugars. The amount of insulin required to maintain normal blood sugar levels increases as resistance rises until even massive doses of insulin no longer have the desired effect and the system crashes.


Liquidity has the same dynamic. Back in the good old days of 2008-09, a $1 trillion tsunami of liquidity was enough to save the global debt machine from implosion and spark an enduring global stock market rally.


The current rally since late December required (by some estimates) over $3 trillion in global liquidity injections from central banks. In four years, the market's resistance has skyrocketed: where $1 trillion launched a multi-year global rally (goosed along with QE2 and Operation Twist when it began to falter), now $3 trillion yielded a 100-day rally that is already coming apart at the seams.


You see where this is going. To maintain the veneer of normalcy, i.e. a continuing Bull market, the next liquidity injection will have to be $5 trillion, and it will spawn a rally of perhaps 50 days. That $5 trillion will probably break the global market; if it doesn't, then the next tidal wave of $7 trillion (or whatever the market needs to trigger another high) most certainly will.


At some point, the liquidity injection will fail to boost the market at all, and that will trigger a panicky rush for the exits…

according to the central planners, not only is debt the fix to record debt, but liquidity is about to be unleashed on a world that is, you guessed it, already drowning in liquidity. The bad news: everything being tried now will fail, as it did before, because nothing has changed, except for the scale, meaning the blow up will be all that more spectacular. The good news: at least the Keynesians (or is it simply Socialists now?) out there will not be able to say we should have just added one more [ ]illion in debt/liquidity and all would have worked, just as our textbooks predicted. Because by the time it's over, that too will have happened…
