Et Tu, Part Two


For your weekend pleasure, here's Part Two of The Golden Jackass podcast.

In the second half of our visit, Jim Willie discusses in detail the changes that he sees coming to the global financial system, changes that were once thought to be a few years away but suddenly seem right around the corner.

Bruno Iksil

Just re-listening to the Jim Willie podcast, I thought I'd refresh my memory of what the london whale, bruno iksil looked like, but i can't find a single photo on google images or articles from the time? I'm sure they published his photo at the time?

Yeah, I'd settle for that. Can't happen soon enough.

Raining Monkeys

Honestly, I'd like to see Eric Holder prosecuted for not upholding the laws of the land, and replaced with someone who will. Then let's see the monkeys up on criminal charges, decades jail time, cuddled up with big bubba and enjoying lunch.

I will take a serious side bet au will not decline 30 to 40 Bucks tomorrow.

With regards to plummeting banksters,

when will it start raining monkeys?

Honestly it seems like a nonsensical thing to put on a coin.

And I did not even get into the implied 10-1 exchange rate given the ten-hundred days thing.

My question wasn't complicated. I simply want to know what the hell you mean and imply.

Old coins had a dollar value on them. That makes sense to me, as that in no way defines the value of a dollar or the coin and allows the market to price items in relation to it.

Your uhmm suggestion seems to me to be communistic thinking tbh.

Your evasion seems childish to me. Then again I am not sure what other type of response is possible as the suggestion seems in no way rational to me.

Edit :

Here's a thought.

Either you want people to think that there is no value to improving themselves and that specialization is futile, as all labour is only valued ito time, so they may as well become pool boys.


Perhaps you didn't think this through and now you are trying to save face instead of admitting to it.

I am generously leaning towards the latter.

I can't help you or anybody else on that one who can't answer it for themselves honestly.

Sorry. Time is up.

Peaceful settlement

Crimea just voted to leave the Ukraine and will apply to join the Russian Federation. This is exactly the opposite of a peaceful settlement. If anything, I would think that this move will only lead to more uncertainty, and a commensurate rise in metals prices.

Looks like the AUD/JPY and USD/JPY crosses are lower on the open of FOREX, which spells equity weakness if this persists into 930 est tomorrow.

Beware the "peaceful settlement"

I think the Dow will be up 200 tomorrow and gold down $30-40 because everything will be hunky-dory, but the tanks start moving Tuesday night.
