Goldman Sachs has proposed a general decline in wages by 30% in France
An interview ofHuffington Postis the bad buzz. An economist at the US bank Goldman Sachs is asked about the financial crisis, the euro zone and the situation in France. His « miracle solution » to revive the French economy? Lower wages by a third.
Passage in Paris to take stock of the past year and those to come, economists at Goldman Sachs came to distill their forecasts for 2013. This is Huw Pill, the ‘Mr Europe’ to its economists, who answered questions from the HuffPost and scans all the major topics.
Situation of the euro area, the Greece, France, but also the cabal launched by The Economist against the Government… Here is the opinion of the most prestigious – and more demonic -investment Bank world.
What to expect from the year 2013 in Europe?
We are quite optimistic with regard to the overall economic situation, especially for the second half of the year. We are also optimistic for the financial markets, which have taken a good direction since the end of last year. Engines of growth that are the United States and China have regained the levels they tutoyaient before the crisis.
And for the eurozone in particular?
It expected a contraction lower in 2012. However, it will take at least 2016 to return to modest growth, according to our estimates. The euro zone especially needs to reduce its public debt. GAG
The distinction made between a way out?
From 2015, the benefits of savings schemes will begin to bear fruit. Europe will pull slowly, but surely. Being slow to adapt to the global economic situation.
What is the situation of the Greece?
It is the country which has the largest imbalances. Athens is far from out of case, but this is the country that has experienced the biggest adjustments throughout the euro area. Other measures remain to be taken, but stabilization is close. The Greece still needs the help of Europe, but time. It will be neither easy nor quick.
How Goldman Sachs sees the French economy?
If compared with the Greece, the France has it all. Best placed geographically, more important economically… But she could not count on a European program for the Greece. Suddenly, the France must practice adjustments to itself.
What is the problem, no?
The France has a chronic problem that lasts for many years. Including a lack of competitiveness and imbalances in its accounts. In my opinion, the main problem is portrayed by a too important public sector. As a result of return economy itself, that’s why the France does not produce enough of exportable goods.
A recipe for François Hollande ?
Should move the grip of the State to the private sector. Then, should rely on a general decline of wages, in order to regain competitiveness. It is estimated that the France would reduce its average salary about one third, which is politically impossible to impose…
« I hated The Economist survey.
What do you think of the cover of The Economist, illustrating the economic situation in France with a ticking time bomb?
Talk about an article in particular is quite dangerous, but I believe that I hated it, it has me worried. The Economist has criticized the low competitiveness and the right-of-way of the State, which could ultimately threaten Europe. I agree with theanalysis, but on the contrary of this newspaper, I am convinced that the France can reform itself. The France is not the Greece, the Ireland, the Portugal, the Italy or the Spain. She continued to borrow at rates very low on contracts, which have confidence in it.
Confident are you for it?
I think that the France will have undertaken these changes within three to five years. It should therefore take the right direction, which will make the euro area more powerful and more resistant. The real question is rather whether the country will seize the opportunity that presents itself to him, thanks to its low levels of borrowing in the markets…
GEOPOLITICS: the underside of the Cameron visit to washington
The Times article co-authored not British Prime Minister David Cameron and US president Barack Obama reflects clearly the geopolitical difficulties faced by London and Washington recently written Friday, January 16 daily Rossiyskaya gazeta .
Of course, the two leaders tried to good figure, striving to show in their statements – well prepared by their press services – the indestructible nature of the Anglo-Saxon union and concern for the relationship between the United Kingdom and its former colony.
Apart from the traditional discourse on the joint fight against terrorism, the president and the Prime Minister have announced that they intend ‘ strengthen by all means the British and American economies to protect themselves from a new global economic decline ‘. A very revealing statement: it is not about overcoming these difficulties in the context of the G20 and other international structures. On the contrary, Washington and London want to strengthen first and foremost their union bilateral to combat economic difficulties, by renouncing to adjust their actions with the rest of the world.
The article also notes the agreement between Obama and Cameron for ‘act together and put pressure on the Russia ‘. The two leaders see in this strategy the core of their friendship and don’t bother even mentioning any search for compromises in relations with Moscow.
However, the emphasis of American exclusivity displayed in this article in the Times did not bind the problems experienced by the two politicians. Cameron, who has committed on the way out of the EU, is aware of the fact that leaving the United Europe the British may find themselves in a terrifying loneliness. It seeks so to prepare the ground by showing the British public that London has an ally even more influential that the Brussels bureaucrats.
Obama also displayed in this article his disappointment with the EU. Unlike the United Kingdom, docile, Washington indignant that Europeans do not follow the directive of a confrontation with Moscow’s long-term and re-establish their relations with Russia under any pretext. This disobedience irritated the White House, which, moreover, has never really believed in the ostentatious loyalty of Europe and believes most of all today. Instead of permanently freezing relations with the Russia, as required by American politicians, the head of European diplomacy Federica Mogherini has, on the contrary, given the green light to restore cooperation with the Kremlin.
This initiative contrasts with the tone of the article of Obama and Cameron, offering only one type of dialogue with Moscow – a confrontation until total victory over the enemy.
The new framework for EU-Russia relations suggested by Mogherini to European Ministers of Foreign Affairs is absolutely not in Washington. This article in the Times is thus a kind of foreign policy agenda presented by these two leaders of the Anglo-Saxon union inviting the representatives of the old Continent most opposed to the Russia to accede. While Mogherini proposals reflect the opinion of another centre of a United Europe. The countries that are part advocating the continuation of the settlement of the conflict in Ukraine to the ‘Normandy format’ with the participation of the France, the Germany, the Ukraine and the Russia and oppose the policy of isolation of Moscow which benefits economically as one country – the USA
The Iranian nuclear bomb
Patriotic Algeria: The news is dominated by the agreement on Iran’s nuclear programme, what do you think? Which this agreement arrange the most? (1)
Robert Bibeau : The Iran-U.S. agreement about the Iranian nuclear industry has been accepted by the representatives of the Iran, continued it is true an embargo and sanctions American and illegal European (in international law). All the same, it is the choice of the legitimate Iranian Government to negotiate and agree on such an agreement. The independence of the Iranian nation gives him the right to sign agreements that suit him. Any other people or nation can only bow to the will of the Government of the Iran concerning its international relations with American imperialism. However, we are entitled to ask why is there not reciprocity? After all, the Iran not to ever launch nuclear bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
However, I hope that through this agreement the Iran does not renounce its programme of nuclear enrichment and development of a nuclear energy industry. I hope that the Iran does not renounce its legitimate and fundamental rights because the Iran represents the symbol of a State standing up to one of the confiscatory imperialist alliances (2).

Greece: a symbol of illegitimate debt. GlobalizationI leave you the
Link, because all graphite other FMIet sources, could not be downloaded.
Summary: The Greek debt has made the headlines at the time where this country’s leaders have accepted the cure of austerity demanded by the IMF and the European Union, which caused of very important social struggles throughout the year 2010. But where does this debt Greek? On the side of the private sector debt, the increase is recent: a first strong increase following the entry of Greece into the eurozone in 2001, a second explosion of debt occurs from 2007 when financial aid granted to the banks by the Federal Reserve in the United States, European Governments and the European Central Bank (ECB) is partly recycled by bankers to the Greece and other countries as the Spain or the Portugal. On the side of public indebtedness, growth is older. After the debt inherited from the regime of the colonels, recourse to borrowing was used since the 1990s to fill the hole created in public finances by reducing the tax on corporations and high incomes. Moreover, for decades, many loan helped fund the purchase of military equipment mainly the France, the Germany and the United States. Do not forget the huge debt of the public authorities for the organisation of the Olympic Games in 2004. The public debt gearing was oiled by bribes of large transnational companies to obtain contracts: Siemens is an emblematic example.
This is why the legitimacy and legality of debts must be subject to rigorous scrutiny, in the image of the work done by the audit commission full of public debt of Ecuador in 2007-2008. Debts which will be qualified as illegitimate, of odious or illegal, should be declared null and void and the Greece may refuse to repay, while asking for accounts in justice to those who have contracted. Encouraging signs from Greece indicate that the questioning of the debt has become a central theme and that demand for creation of a commission of audit is progressing in an interesting way.
Obvious elements of illegitimacy of the debt
First there is the debt incurred by the regime of the colonels, it increased fourfold between 1967 and 1974. Obviously, it meets the qualification of debt odious |1|
To continue, there is the scandal of the 2004 Olympic Games. According to Dave Zirin, when the Government announced with pride in 1997 to Greek citizens that the Greece would have the honour of welcoming seven years later Olympic Games, authorities in Athens and the international Olympic Committee foresaw an expenditure of $ 1.3 billion. A few years later, the cost had increased four-fold and amounted to $ 5.3 billion. Just after these games, the official cost had reached $ |2| 14.2 billion. Today, according to different sources, the actual cost would exceed $ 20 billion.
Many contracts signed between the Greek authorities and large foreign private companies make scandal for several years in Greece. These contracts involved an increase in debt. Cite several examples which have hit the headlines in Greece:
several contracts with the transnational German Siemens, accused – both by German justice Greek-to have paid commissions and other bribes to staff political, military and administrative Greek for an amount approaching EUR 1 billion. The main leader of the firm Siemens-HellasV |3| which acknowledged having « financed » the two major parties Greek, fled in 2010 in Germany and the German justice rejected the request for extradition submitted by the Greece. These scandals include the sale by Siemens and Associates International, the Patriot anti-missile system (1999, 10 million euros in bribes), the digitalization of the call centres from OTE – body Greek Telecommunications (EUR 100 million bribes), « C4I » bought on the occasion of the 2004 Olympics security system and who has never worked, the sale of equipment to the Greek railways (SEK)telecommunications system Hermes in the Greek army, very expensive equipment sold to Greek hospitals.
the scandal of the German submarines (produced by HDW which has been absorbed by Thyssen) for a total value of 5 billion euros, submarine which had early failure look enormously… left (!) and be equipped with a faulty electronic equipment. A judicial inquiry into possible responsibilities (bribery) of the former Ministers of defence is underway.
It is normal to assume that debts incurred to achieve these contracts are minted of illegitimacy, or even illegal. They must be cancelled.
Next to cases which have just been mentioned, it is necessary to understand the recent evolution of Greek debt.
Runaway debt in the last decade
Private sector debt is widely developed during the 2000s. Households, for which banks and all the private commercial sector (retail, automotive, construction…) offered attractive conditions, have resorted to massive debt, all as non-financial companies and banks that could borrow at low cost (rate of low interest and higher inflation for most industrialized countries of the European Union such as the Germany, the FranceBenelux, Great Britain). This private debt has been the engine of the economy of the Greece. Greek banks (to which must be added the Greek subsidiaries of foreign banks), thanks to a strong euro, could expand their international activities and their national activities at a lower cost. They have borrowed to arm circumference. The table below shows that the Greece joining the euro zone in 2001 has boosted financial capital inflows which correspond to loans or portfolio investment (Non-IDE in the table, cad of the entries that do not correspond to long-term investments) while the long-term investment (FDI – foreign direct investment) has stagnated.
With huge cash made available to them by the central banks in 2007-2009, banks in Western Europe (especially German and French banks, but also Belgian, Dutch, British, Luxembourg, Irish banks…) have lent massively to the Greece (private sector and public authorities). It must also take into account the fact that the Greece joining the euro has earned the confidence of bankers from the countries of Western Europe, thinking that the large European countries they would help in case of problems. They are not concerned to the capacity of Greece to repay the capital loaned in the medium term. Bankers felt they could take risks very high in Greece. History gave them reason so far, the European Commission and, in particular, the french and German Governments brought an unwavering support to private Western bankers. For this, the European rulers have put public finances in a lamentable state.
The chart below shows that banks of the countries of Western Europe have increased their loans to the Greece once between December 2005 and March 2007 (during this period, the volume of loans increased by 50%, from just under $ 80 billion to $ 120 billion). While the subprime crisis had broken out in the United States, loans have again increased strongly (+ 33%) between June 2007 and summer 2008 (rising from $ 120 to $ 160 billion), then they are maintained at a very high level (approximately $ 120 billion). This means that private Western banks have used the money that lent them massively and at low cost the Central Bank European and the Federal Reserve of the United States to increase their loans to countries such as Greece |5|. There, the rates are higher, they could make juicy profits. Private banks have a very large share of responsibility in the excessive indebtedness of the Greece.
Evolution of liabilities of the banks in Western Europe against Greece (in $ billion)
As shown in the graphic below, the overwhelming majority of the Greek debt is owned by European banks to start banks French, German, Italian, Belgian, Dutch, Luxembourg and British.
Foreign holders (who are almost exclusively by foreign banks and other financial companies) of the debt Greek (end 2008) |7|
Greek citizens are quite right to expect that the debt be radically reduced, implying that bankers must be held to clear debts in their books of account.
The obnoxious behavior of the European Commission
After the outbreak of the crisis, the military-industrial lobby supported by the Governments of German, french and European Commission succeeded in obtaining that the defence budget is barely chipped while at the same time, the Government of PASOK undertook to cut in social spending (see box on austerity measures). However, Greek crisis in early 2010, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Turkish Prime Minister, which has strained relations with its Greek neighbour, travelled to Athens and has proposed a reduction of 20% of the military budget of the two countries. The Greek Government has not seized perch that he was tense. He was put under pressure by the French and German authorities who wanted to secure their arms exports. Proportionally, the Greece spends weapons much more than other countries of the European Union. Greek military expenditures represent 4% of GDP from 2.4% for France, 2.7% for Great Britain, 2.0% for Portugal, 1.4% for Germany, 1.3% for Spain, 1.1% for the Belgium p.e.i.).|8|. In 2010, the Greece bought in the France six frigates of war (2.5 billion euros) and helicopter gunships (EUR 400 million). Germany, she has bought 6 submarines for EUR 5 billion. The Greece was one of the five largest importers of weapons in Europe between 2005 and 2009. The purchase of fighter jets alone accounts for 38% of the volume of its imports, with the acquisition of 26 F – 16 (USA) and 25 Mirages 2000 (France), this last contract for a value of € 1.6 billion. The list of french equipment sold to the Greece does not stop there: there are also armoured vehicles (Lav 70), the NH90 helicopters, missile MICA, Exocet, Scalp and the Sperwer. The Greece purchases made the third customer of the French defence in the past decade |9| industry.
From 2010, the interest rates more, required by bankers and other players in the financial markets with the support of the European Commission and the IMF, result in a classic effect « snow ball »: Greek debt continued a upward curve, as the authorities of the country borrow capital to repay interests (and a fraction of the capital previously borrowed).
Loans from 2010 to the Greece by the countries members of the European Union and the IMF are in no way seeking to serve the interests of the Greek population, the contrary since the austerity plans put in place include multiple violations of social rights of the population. Such |10|, the notion of ‘illegitimate debt’ should their be applied, and their disputed rebate.
Rights abuses social and other neo-liberal measures in Greece from 2010
Reduction of the salaries of the public sector by 20 to 30%. Reduction in nominal wages which could reach 20%, 13th and 14th months replaced by a lump sum the amount of which varies depending on the salary. Salaries frozen for the next 3 years. 4 retirements on 5 in the public service will not be replaced. Massive reduction of the salaries of private up to 25%.
Unemployment benefits have been reduced and a system of helping the poor set up in 2009 has been suspended. Drastic reduction in allowances for large families.
Plans to remove collective agreements and replace them with individualized contracts. The practice of not very long internships or very little paid has acquired force of law. The public sector is now authorized to use in the interim.
Drastic grants to city halls and common cuts resulting in mass layoffs of municipal workers. Dismissal of the 10,000 workers CSD of the public sector. Closure of loss-making public enterprises.
Increase of indirect taxation (VAT from 19% to 23% and introduction of special taxes on fuels, alcohol and tobacco). Increase of 11% to 13% of the lower rate of VAT (this concerns large daily consumption goods, electricity, water, etc.). Increase in tax on income for the medium-sized slices. In contrast, reduction of corporate income tax.
Willingness to privatize the ports, airports, railways, water and electricity distribution, the financial sector and State-owned land.
Pensions must be reduced and then frozen. The legal age of retirement is increased, the number of annuities to qualify for a full pension will be increased from 37 to 40 years in 2015 and its amount calculated on the average salary of all of the years worked and not more on final salary. Must be added the abolition of the 13th and 14th month pension for retirees from the private sector. Imposition of a ceiling of expenditure on pensions, which should no longer exceed the equivalent of 2.5% of GDP.
Rates of public transport
Increase of 30% of all public transport tickets.
The requirement for an audit of the debt is gaining ground
In December 2010, the independent MP Sophia Sakorafa has made an intervention also noticed in the Greek Parliament by proposing the establishment of a parliamentary Committee of audit of public debt Greek |10|. Sophia Sakorafa, who until a few months ago was part of the Government party PASOK (Socialist Party), also voted against the budget 2011 |11|, notably because of the weight of the debt repayment. In justification of his courageous stance, it amply referred to the experience of audit conducted by Ecuador in 2007-2008 which resulted in a significant reduction of the debt of this country. She proposed that the Greece follow the Ecuadorian example and said that there was an alternative to submission to creditors, be they the IMF or bankers. In its arguments, it has focused on « odious debt » that do not reimburse. This statement has been echoed in the press. Still in the Greek Parliament, Alexis Tsipras, leader of Synaspismos (one of the radical left parties), also requested the establishment of an audit committee « so that we know which part of the debt is odious, illegitimate and illegal ». Greek public opinion is evolving and the media do not deceive.
December 5, 2010, a major Greek newspaper published an article of the Greek Economist Costas Lapavitsas entitled: « International Commission of audit of Greek debt: an imperative demand. In its conclusion, the author stated: « the International Commission of audit will have a field of action privileged in our country. Just to think of debt contracts concluded with the mediation of Goldman Sachs or to finance the purchase of weapons of war to see the need for an independent audit. If they prove repugnant or illegal, these debts will be so declared null and our country may refuse to repay, while asking for accounts in justice to those who have contracted. « Trade unions, several political parties, many intellectuals support this proposal because they believe that it is an instrument to find a solution to the debt in terms of cancellation and in terms of penalizing businesses and people who have been responsible for this illegitimate debt. Note also that a Greek Committee against the debt was born in 2010 |13|. These different elements are promising. The year 2011 could represent the beginning of a welcome turning point with regard to the ability of the left to offer opportunities to resist the dictates of creditors.
|1| According to Alexander Sack, theorist of the doctrine of odious debt » If a despotic power incurs a debt not not according the needs and the interests of the State, but to strengthen its despotic regime to repress the population who fight, this debt is odious for the population of the entire State (…) This debt is not mandatory for the nation: it is a regime debt, personal debt of the power which has contracted it; Therefore, it falls with the fall of this power « (Sack, 1927).

In 1997 when Athens « won » the games, city leaders and the International Olympic Committee estimated a cost of $1.3 billion. When the actual detailed planning was done, the price jumped to $5.3 billion. By the time the Games were over, Greece had spent some $14.2 trillion, pushing the country’s budget deficit to record levels. »

Offences incriminated to Siemens by the German courts were so obvious that to avoid conviction in good and due form, this company has agreed to pay a fine of 201 million euros in October 2007 to the German authorities.

Here it is: for a contract between two parties or valid, according to Common Law, it is necessary that each party has exercised the autonomy, cad must be that each party was in a position to be able to say no or to refuse certain contract clauses that went against its interests. When financial markets began to blackmail against the Greece in March-April 2010 and that subsequently the European Commission and IMF combined together to impose draconian conditions on Greece (harsh austerity measures which constitute a violation of economic and social rights), we can consider that the Greece was not really able to exercise the autonomy and refuse.

SCANDALOUS RACISM. USA: Florida police uses images of BLACKS as training targets
Valerie o, Sergeant of the National Guard in Florida, visited the month last Medley for his annual training of shooting. Elites of the North Miami Beach police Sharpshooters had gone before her. Upon entering the room, the American found herself facing a wall filled with pictures of forensic identification of blacks, riddled with bullets. Among these negatives were his brother, arrested 15 years ago for a case of race cars.
‘I wondered why Woody was the target of training for police. I cried several times », says Valerie o to NBC. Shocked, the young woman was comforted by colleagues present on-site, also stunned. The brother of Valerie, who was 18 when the snapshot was made, did not return home: « my picture really had bullet wounds. One on my forehead and on my eye. I was speechless’, he explains.
We have targets of all races « .
The Chief of police, Scott Dennis, said that the officers involved had poor judgement but denied any accusation of racist profiling. Person will be punished, he added. Major Kathy Katerman, for its part, said in the Huffington Post that during training in shooting, the service also uses a series of pictures of forensic identification showing only men white, another containing only Latin Americans or a third with that pictures of women. « We are targets of all the races, » she says.
NBC interviewed sources from State and federal authorities as well as five local police departments. All have stated that only commercially manufactured targets were used for firing exercises. Never in the pictures of beings humans. (And yet…)Editor’s notes)

INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT (ICC). CASE LAURENT GBAGBO: Fatou Bensouda already out of breath.
The Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), fatou Bensouda, already seems out of breath. Has just asked the Chamber of first instance 1 court prosecution together Laurent Gbagbo and Charles Blé Goudé she bristled already.
In a motion dated December 19, 2014, she asked the House of ‘partially suspend’ order which fixes July 7, 2015, the date of commencement of the trial of president Gbagbo. and, on February 6, 2015, the deadline within which it should have disclosed to the defence all documents at its disposal, its witness list and its list of evidence. She asked, in effect, be authorized to disclose all of these elements that the Chamber will be pronounced on its application to join the two cases. Gagbo main Board did not ignore the other pranks of Mrs. Bensouda. In its reply of January 9, me Emmanuel Altit asked, primarily, to the trial Chamber 1 of the ICC to reject the request by Bell. and, in the alternative, to suspend the effects of the ‘order fixing the date of commencement of the trial and the timing of the disclosure. Me Altit especially wants the House suspend its application of the time limits provided in this order.
Pursuant to the order of 17 November 2014, the defence must, indeed, have five months from disclosure of all of its evidence by the Prosecutor, in particular the disclosure of its list of witnesses and his final list of evidence in order to prepare effectively in accordance with the provisions of article 67 of the staff. Therefore, main board president Gbagbo can request the Chamber as it decides the dates laid down by Ordinance, including those on 6 February and 7 July 2015 are now deciduous and and other dates will be fixed in due time.
But before, Mr. Emmanuel Altit noted that demand for fatou Bensouda is a challenge to the spirit of the House. « The dates have been set by the judges on the basis of the report that they have operated between expediency and respect for the rights of the defence », he said. He also noted that the Prosecutor of the ICC is based on article 64 (3) (a) of the Statute which allows a Chamber to suspend the execution of certain decisions if this is useful « to conducting fair and expeditious case. » « However, its application, if accepted, would not lead to ‘suspend’ the execution of the order, but change the logic and would betray him to the spirit, not to mention it would lead to a slowdown of the procedure and infringement to its equitable character », he, also defended.
For the lawyer to president Laurent Gbagbo, the decision on a possible joinder does not be taken before March 2015. «In the case where the Attorney would give defence, immediately after that decision, all elements that it should transmit, this would leave defense that barely three months to examine hundreds of new documents and testimony and prepare cross-examinations, what is not reasonable, informed me Emmanuel Altit.»
In the light of all these remarks, Me Altit concluded that Mrs. Bensouda, contrary to its repeated assertions, seeks to save time. because in reality, will add-t – it, it does not seem ready.

The Italian debt, soon an asset rotten but everything goes well
Provided by Express.be
The new has gone almost unnoticed while she deserves the headlines: the public debt of the Italy is more than a notch in the speculative category! Standard & Poor’s Agency has degraded it Friday last one notch to BBB-, or the last note to still qualify it as an « investment ». Then skips to the category called literally « non-investment », a speculative product, or rotten if you prefer. Soon a junk bond therefore. It’s still the largest public debt in the eurozone (2168 billion euros), the third in the world by volume (after the United States and the Japan) and also the third in percentage of GDP (133% of GDP, behind the Japan to 243% of GDP and Greece to 174% of GDP). The other countries rated BBB-by S & P are the Azerbaijan, the Bulgaria, the India, the Morocco, the Romania and the Uruguay.
For S & P, this degradation of the Italian note « reflects the recurring weakness of the performance of gross domestic product, both in real and nominal, undermining its ability to deal with its debt. » Growth not set off and the debt cannot continue to increase in the coming years, and to weigh even more on the public accounts. Untenable in the long term. Unemployment has reached a record level in October to 13.2% of the active population (and 44% among youth), the economy seems to stop. The head of the Government Matteo Renzi speaks a lot, made announcements, defends reforms, but for the moment little changed specifically and the European Commission began to get impatient.
The remarkable element is the total indifference with which markets have welcomed the news. The 10-year Italian debt rate decline regularly in the year 2014 and just below 2%. No panic accompanied the degradation of S & P. To illustrate the bond bubble that is rampant in the world, the case of the Italy is one of the most revealing.
The disconnect between market prices and economic reality highs, who today buys lots of Italian 10 year Treasury will soon have a rated asset in speculative-grade category, in these circumstances to accept a payment of 2% year represents only a sacred risk-taking, an aberration even. But investors say that the European Central Bank will intervene to save their day. Moral hazard is greatest: take reckless risks because, anyway, the ECB will do the necessary to avoid bankruptcy. It is true that the Italian debt is « too big to fail », such as the France, Spain, as Europe’s biggest banks, and as a result all these actors are excellent funding conditions. So eventually all goes well, this is the Dolce Vita!
We live rather here a sort of collective hallucination, the Monetary Authority can do everything, just see the evil that they give to Greece, which continues to sink, an Italian debt crisis would obviously be of any magnitude. Can the eurozone survive if its largest public debt is rated as a rotten assets? Here is the question to be asked and the answer is not self-evident.
