Monday, Jan. 23rd, 2012 – With Europe’s other shoe still hanging in the air, Nothing definitive is certain, until Greece either gets a reprieve or or defaults. The stalemate between the rock and the hard place, continues. As has been discussed in many places, by many people in trhe financial world, the possibility of the currency printing presses going into overdrive is still there. That’s the carrot on a stick that keeps the markets coming back for more. When the paper comes out like confetti, government economic statistics won’t mean a thing. The “inflation under control” nonsense will be exposed for the lie that it is. The important necessities in the inflation figures would have to be replaced with manure to make the official figures. The other important statistic to people who live in the real world, employment figures, will have to count deceased people as employed, before the numbers will look good. In the meantime, the world moves on, and may do so without clearing it with those who think they are in control.
