    Default Economy is bombed out, time to take action!

    Eurozone gets fresh help to bolster flagging growth - BBC News

    The European Central Bank has unveiled fresh stimulus measures to bolster the eurozone, including cutting a key interest rate.

    The deposit facility rate, paid by banks on reserves parked at the ECB, was already negative, but has now been cut from minus 0.4% to minus 0.5%.

    The ECB also said it was re-starting quantitative easing. It will buy €20bn of debt a month from 1 November.

    Happy money printing day!

    Totally bonkers. The day of reckoning will be all the more powerful with this recklessness. 2007/8 will be a historical blip compared to what's coming.

    What will be the Black swan though? Oct 31st? But then that wouldn't be a black swan since we know about it.

    Something has to happen that no one saw coming. I reckon parliament remains closed after prorogation. Westminster does a Stormont. That'll do it.

These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Hopefully this is because UK companies are now sourcing from the UK instead of buying from the continent....

    Yes - decades of prolonged downturn in manufacturing brought back up to speed in 2-days after extra wall socket was found behind fridge.

    Crappy timing for a No Deal Brexit.

    And even with all that money being printed and all this eurozone (imaginary) crisis, the pound will still keep depreciating against the euro!
