    As I recall from Mr. Rogoff states that these super debt cycles take 6-7 yrs to unwind and have three waves along the way.

    We are perhaps just in yr 3 of 6-7 yrs. and the three waves are:

    1) private sector default-i.e. AIG, Bear, Lehman, ML, Countrywide FNM, FRE etc
    2) weak public sectors default- I don’t see the Eurozone’s accounting for this.. it will happen-PIIGS
    3.) strong public sectors pick up the weak public sector debt and then
    a.) restructure debt (modified defaults-haircuts, coupon & maturity restructurings)
    b.) inflate debt away
    c.) outright default on debt

    At least this is what the past 800 years has told us…

    OK, the Irish gov that “negotiated” the bank bondholder bailout just got stomped in the election (70%) turnout, next step is a referendum to repudiate the deal with the EU overlords and reestablish Irish independence.

    Irish bank withdrawals continue in Jan , another 17B, hard to pinpoint due to change in reporting – funny about that
