Meuterei in der EZB?

What is more notable is that earlier today, the ECB lobbed another trial balloon via its favorite media outlet, Reuters, in which we read that a new mutiny may be forming within the ECB, where the doves find Lagarde not dovish enough, while the hawks demand a prompt retraction of the massive liquidity stimulus that has been unleashed in recent months: mehr hier

Erholung? Welche Erholung, bitte?

We have been watching, with disbelief and bemusement, how the “recovery-narrative” has been touted in the financial media and among some economists and analysts. Categorically, an economic recovery is a period of expansion, where we eventually exceed the previous peak in employment and output. There’s no such thing coming (anytime soon). It is very human to avoid acknowledging disturbing possibilities, such as the looming economic abyss the world economy is about to sink into, but now we absolutely need to perceive coldly the economic realities as they are.

At the end of June, the value of Apple alone was almost 80% of the Russell 2000 index’s market capitalization. As of today, it’s nearly 90%. Such is astounding – in the past 40 years, no single stock has come close to dwarfing the value of so many other companies. “ mehr hier

Wirecard-Krimi: Ein lebender Toter?

Yesterday, we reported that a former Wirecard business partner named Christopher Bauer who likely played a key role in the $2 billion accounting fraud that was exposed in June, precipitating the company’s slide into bankruptcy, had apparently turned up dead in Manila. Or that’s at least what Bauer wanted the world to think. As the FT’s digging into Wirecard’s sprawling fraud takes its reporters across Southeast Asia, the paper’s intrepid reporters have apparently found a series of suspicious loans to Bauer’s third-party company, an couple other Wirecard ‘payment partners’ that look more like the company was being looted by executives and probable participants in the fraud right before the hammer came down. mehr hier
