I started a thread a few days ago titled GERMAN ELECTIONS - I just bumped it for you. My take which it seems is disagreed with - Merkel will win - it's how she wins and the uncertainty that might arise - think Feb 25 election in Italy and the chaos at first.
I'll give you the straight up uncomplicated truth...it makes no difference what so ever...just like all elections here or anywhere else. The financial system is done for as it is not a policy problem or a governmental problem. There is too much debt everywhere in the world...period. It has worked its way up the food chain as far as it can go..to the sovereigns. There is no way to pay down this massive debt in a debt as money system. That includes everyone everywhere on the planet. It is a problem with the system, not taxes, not gov spending, not politics. It is a mathematical predicament and predicaments do not have solutions. Markets may well indeed react but markets are insane, corrupt, and delusional. The system cannot change without a collapse and they cannot continue as is without a collapse. This is the truth. Any #$%$ you hear from anyone else particularly from the money community is pure dumb bs
