    The German stockmarket down 22% since recent high. Crazy days in the market. Frankfurt stunned. Waiting for the official response from aonghus.

    US is also bizzare .... down 1000 followed by panic buying and rebounds. Weird, weird day.

    Dow opened down nearly 1000 points has got back most of that back now, scalped a bit of it on the way up but boy you need nerves of steel to play the markets today cause you could get wiped.

    It's all gone pear shaped since he threw away his brother's bag of droogs...

    The lad's off his mind on riesling and mindfulness half the time. Be a couple of weeks before he cops.

    And who da feck said the Chinese were a great bunch of lads?????


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,962 ✭✭✭r93kaey5p2izun


    Perhaps he's still on gardening leave following that f#ck up he said he made a few weeks ago? Perhaps it's actually the absence of a bit of mindfulness that has caused this dreadful calamity.

    He'll blame those dastardly Greeks like other sensible Germans have been doing all day.

    Its been a tough summer for Von B. I hope he's not flung out on his ear, especially after....
    Tuesday 16th June, 2015. 10.43am CET.

    I made a very costly mistake in work. A fundamental error of judgement that cost one of my clients a considerable amount of money, and has tarnished my reputation within the department, and indeed the organisation in general.

    Although, there is always a backup plan :pac:
    I'd rather fancy my chances in Somalia to be honest.

    My advice sell the Aus and NZ dollar, NZ dollar down $11 against the Eur today.

    How concerned should we be? Is there any safe habour currency? Everything's in euros but I've got about $15 American and maybe £30 Sterling. How many hookers will that get in the coming post-crash wasteland?

    I heard he had to pick up a new Tablet, so he might be a wee bit delayed in responding to you.

    What happened, for those of us out of the loop?

    We are all fcuking broker than we already were due to the chinese finding out their money tree didn't grow and someone stole all the tea in China too.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,590 ✭✭✭✭Aidric


    A Chinese bubble has long been in the offing for anyone paying attention. The Chinese government haven't a clue what to do.

    I think Australia will be sweating a little at the moment.

    He was the frog of frankfurt (Street).

    Never mind the German market. £74,000,000,000 has been wiped off the FTSE 100 so far today alone

    How can that be anything approaching correct? China has experienced 35 years of continuous growth while countries that adhere to neoliberal orthodoxy have boomed and bust.

    China is neo-liberal too.
    They care little for regulation, and are very lassaiz faire.
    Companies do what they want. All that matters is that the commissars wet their beaks.

    Plus, when a dictatorships continued survival predicates on saying its making GDP growth, that's what you get..... whether it's real or made up.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,133 ✭✭✭FloatingVoter


    Wasn't Bertie himself out there recently giving economic advice. The poor 'aul Chinese obviously fell for the promise of boomier times.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,117 ✭✭✭✭Junkyard Tom


    China is neo-liberal too.

    It's not really. The vast majority of China's largest companies are publicly owned and managed. Neoliberal orthodoxy is all about privatization.
    Companies do what they want. All that matters is that the commissars wet their beaks.

    They do as they're told.
    While China continues to develop capitalistic capacities, the party-state has increasingly tightened control of the economy and synchronized political and economic stratification – a tendency towards a centrally managed capitalism. Under centrally managed capitalism, the party-state commands the economy by controlling personnel, organizations, and capital in both political and economic arenas.
