Sarkozy & Merkel Burst Out Laughing at Press Conference When Asked If Italy Can Implement Reforms
[link to www.zerohedge.com]

The wholesale laughter 19 seconds in the the clip, by not only the entire audience, but by Merkel and Sarkozy pretty much explains what the "next steps" in Europe are as the continent has now given up any pretense it is even trying to keep a serious facade on the upcoming serial defaults...

With the prospect of near bankrupt countires implementing proper reforms brings roars of laughter from Sarkozy & Merkel, as well as the audience, what does that tell the world about the liklihood of the Euro crisis ever seeing any resolution short of collapse?

I think they have lost patience & are beyond the point of caring.

It is rather sad state when the French can justifiably laugh at the lack of discipline of another country.

I think the PIIGS are in a state of denial. Even though the populace in their countries are protesting, I think they still do not understand that there simply is a lack of resources available to maintain, let alone reverse the insolvency trend.

I read in another article that there is discussion of leveraging the EU bailout with funds from China & Brazil. Debt is what caused this mess & I do not see how adding further debt will do anything other than further ignite the problem.

Yes.

To publically laugh is a definite vote of no confidence. It is simply confirmation of what most of us already knew.

Both France and Germany are reluctant to put more of their own money into the stability fund, so the leaders are discussing how the International Monetary Fund could help expand the pot. There is also a serious conversation about creating a separate fund linked to the stability fund that would be open to investors and sovereign-wealth funds from outside Europe, like the Chinese, Indians and Brazilians, as well as non-euro countries like Sweden and Norway. The goal is to amass resources of 750 billion to 1.25 trillion euros in all, a European official said.

This is another piece of bad news for the US taxpayer in that the IMF is funded by the US more than any other country.

We have our own serious fiscal issues & cannot afford to plus up the IMF unless we can get our own house in order.

Either way, whether the EU collapses & take the US with them or we put the US taxpayer in deeper debt by funneling funds through the IMF, we are not going to emerge from this well.

Good evening, Nick! Thanks. hf


You could be right. The laughter was sarcastic, & perhaps it is better than crying or screaming.

Good evening to you too young warrior. Sarcastic is a good word!

It kind of seems to me like they were like "Why TF are you asking us about Italy??? We could care less about Italy and their reforms, do you see this mountain of crap we have to climb...damn the reforms man; we got real problems here..."

All in all the sharades are wearing thin as you infer. I think we may be close to an event horizon. Great catch though; as usual.

Truthfully, the only thing Berlusconi seem efficient at handling are his mistresses.

Until some sembelance of morality is restored in our natioanl governments, expecting any type of financial accountability & responsibility is a bit of a stretch.
