Good afternoon

OK, move aside, we'll take it from here. Without much further ado, let's do what we came here for. That is, after saying thanks all of you who have shown us their appreciation and support. We need to get used to this format, obviously, but that will be fine.

We will refresh the content here on a daily basis, if and when possible, with more comments on articles and events from us than you've seen before. It won't by any means be only finance issues, but for now it seems a good idea to follow the money a little bit.

Glad to see you up and running. I just bookmarked this and will start checking it daily. The entire world may be on the cusp of something enormous, or, we may slide by for a while yet. I don't see how but I'm not the one who has to pull rabbits out of this hat, Bernanke is.

Good luck you two!

Congratulations! It's good to see you on the air. Isn't it nice to have a room of your very own?

BTW, what the hell does it mean to the hoi polloi when a bank has no non-borrowed reserves? I'm twitching just a little over that.

Glad to see you have your site running. I'll be back often to check it.

Good evening and best wishes on bringing forth this new site where we can review the tea leaves of the crack-up-boom in motion.

As evidenced by today's reaction on Wall Street and now apparently being reaffirmed in Asian markets, the Money Masters still have some ammo left to slow down and mask the greater carnage we know is due sometime down the road.

Until then it will be a slow and steady descent until the ammo is finally revealed for blank checks on an already irredeemable and bankrupt ponzi scheme.

In the meantime I look forward to your daily detailings of our losses. Thanks.

Cool! It was a pain in the tookus to have to check four or five different sites to get the info you two put together. And just in time too; things seem to really have gone haywire.

Ric said...

Terrific! Good luck with your new site! Sorely missed your Roundups....

My only comment is I wondered who wrote the quote in your banner--had to look it up. Paul Simon.

It is wonderful to find you both back and doing what you do so well!

I've sorely missed your round-ups at TOD, they had become my primary reason for visiting over there.

Congratulations and THANKS! I've set my bookmark and will be back often.

Testing, testing... Ah good.

Congratulations on your new blog.

From the New York Times:

Until a few months ago, it was accepted wisdom that the American economy functioned far more smoothly than in the past. Economic expansions lasted longer, and recessions were both shorter and milder. Inflation had been tamed. The spreading of financial risk, across institutions and around the world, had reduced the odds of a crisis.

Back in 2004, Ben Bernanke, then a Federal Reserve governor, borrowed a phrase from an academic research paper to give these happy developments a name: “the great moderation.”

These days, though, the great moderation isn’t looking quite so great — or so moderate."

Today is the 07 Dec 2010

I just want to see what happens when I post to an old entry.

Today, Ireland is is deciding to pass an austerity budget to create liquidity for their banks and to save the foreign investors from taking a loss on their investments.

Today is also a 'bankrun day" in E.U. that has been started by a soccer star.
