    The big lesson from this graph is from 1939 to 1945.

    It is clearly better to be a neutral power or collaborator than a warmonger. The French and Spanish stock markets did quite well from 1939 to 1945.

    Because there is soooooo much frigging cash in investments as oppossed to being available for consumption. The money is in the wrong place at the wrong time. Europe can’t “invest” themselves out of their problems…….

    i have lost some on my recent short term shorts
    but i think the rally is bailout hope
    and rate cut liklihood
    and markets not capable of analyzing
    that a bailout and rates cuts will do little for the Eurozone macro and credit supply
    the economy is falling off cliff
    industrial production down over 4% not annualized last two months
    an acceleration
    thats for the entire eurozone
    germany and the other stronger countries are rolling over
    manufacturing trade sales–employment– are all rolling over

    i have put some less leveraged long term shorts on basic macro italy germany spain–less banking system shorts
    so i can just sit and wait for 6 months or so…
    also outright short UBS
    which is allowed and may crater

    O Eurozone, Complacency is thy name! And no lack of procrastination in facing up to thy enemies!
