a titanic orchestra, 1-2-3, 1-2-3, gurgle gurgle...
it also reminds me of someone holding two shorting cables in their hand and the juice paralysing their nervous system.
one cable being the 'markets' (those b-a-d speculators, gambling for the shirt off europe's back, and cog-diss alert the other cable being that these scary scary 'market forces' are nothing more than granma's portfolio managers trying to keep her savings from becoming extinct!)
it's the same fucking money, but instead of going round and round, the institutions are creaming so much off the top and being fear-based anal retentives, are hoarding offshore. it's all reactionary, reflexive.
this farce cannot but further descend into tragedy, unless the blocks and backchannels are removed and money can serve its proper function by circulating within the financial system, all the way through down to the bottom where it's most needed.
too many clever-clever monkey games.
so totally unnecessary for a sane society, useless as tits on a bull...
