GERMAN BANKS TO THE REST OF EUROPE: TAKE A HIKE

Germany and German banks seem to be telling the rest of the European Union that they will not go along with a scheme that would basically make German deposits security the basis of bailing out the rest of Europe:

German banks reject EU deposit guarantee scheme

So...for those keeping score: (1) Greece is coming close to leaving the EU because it doesn't want to turn over its national treasures as collateral (and I have a blog about that folks); (2) Italy is taking similar quiet steps, and that meas Spain and Portugal will probably follow. In short, the so-called PIGS nations are saying no to Berlin and Frankfurt. Meanwhile, Germany is saying no to the first group, and to the Eurocrats in Brussels and their masters in the City of London.

  1. “Germany is saying no to the first group, and to the Eurocrats in Brussels and their masters in the City of London”

    I’m still not convinced the “first group” is their own master nor am I yet convinced the masters are in the city of London- my own gut instincts tell me and the whole thing is a cover-story

  2. Irony, given how much money German banks “made” on the Spanish real estate bubble.

    1. Spain’s real estate problem is in fact Germany’s… so for all I care.. Spanish banks shareholders can be wiped out, and the German bondholders (German Banks) can take over all the assets (loan books) and majority shareholding positions.

      The Spanish Goverment can guarantee all deposits under separate vehicles and impose a 100% reserve requirement to all bank credit transactions. A National Bank (vs. Central Bank) can do the rest.

      In the end…it all comes down to the same… all the junk assets/loan portfolio German Banks gather in Spain, will be consolidated at the German Banks balance sheet (including their deposit base), so German depositors will swallow all the trash they helped create in the first place.

    Problem is Germany will never get in bed with the Russians, too much water under the bridge.

    1. They don’t have to get into bed with each other, just share the same bathroom 😉
