    Currency is not collapsing? Look around you, is all of this debt not a friggin’ crisis??? What world are people living in??? Do any of you actually go shopping for food and energy? No currency crisis??? I am going for a walk, I need to cool off. No currency crisis … no currency crisis … LOL

    So how do I get in on some of this ‘shadow banking’?
    I’d loveto get in on the action. It’s what all the cool kids are doing, no?

    Huh? With 6 plus billion people on the planet, $67 trillion works out to $10,000 per person on planet Earth. (Is this notional values of derivative etc?) It makes no sense what so ever. None.

  6. Bruce says:

    “The size of the shadow banking system, which includes the activities of money market funds, monoline insurers and off- balance sheet investment vehicles, “can create systemic risks” and “amplify market reactions when market liquidity is scarce,” the Financial Stability Board said in a report, which utilized more data than last year’s probe into the sector. “
