I can't not hear the intro music to Mission Impossible when I see an IMF story.

The reality is that Greece needs to be sent to the financial equivalent of Scared Straight and everyone else needs to get Keynesian on this biatch.

No, no where near the bottom. After we finish feasting on the brains of our neighbors
we will see a dead cat bounce only to crash some more.

Prediction: Just like in most threads from 2001-2010, 90% of Fark experts will predict worldwide disaster.

Reality sets in when the IMF experiences Neo Nuremberg.

Not a moment before. :)

It was always "worrisome" and the IMF never really expected the growth they were forecasting. They (and the fed) were just giving a rosier view of the future to keep the masses from panicking. Ease them into the pile of shiat in order to maintain order, rather than just shoving them into it.

That's an interesting notion. All this time I figured they were complete dumbasses who were incapable of seeing the OBVIOUS. My sister with an IQ of 96 even saw this coming....

You cannot pool wealth in few families and think that they are going to purchase enough to create demand.

We're all screwed unless there is some change to wealth consolidation.

Reality is that bankers are changing their terms once they saw its not a debt clock it's a countdown until they run out of time.

No doubt about it, they will get their money one way or another. The IMF is ruthless.
