My Favorite Tweets: November 2011

The Euro still exists, but the mainstream media has been jumping on the doom-scenario-bandwagon. That probably means the Euro will be saved by something coordinated intervention [Wednesday Update: COORDINATED INTERVENTION LEADING TO A HUGE RALLY, KILLING ALL THE BEARS!]. Besides that nothing points to a reason for optimism, as reflected in my bearish twitter stream. Then again… if Mrs. Nein decides to say Ja only once, we will see a unprecedented rally [Update: not even needed – yet] – until everybody realized it won’t work. Go for gold.

Days like this, I’m glad to be a slow-paced academic, & not a journalist trying to make sense of the Fed / ECB. Good luck my journo friends!

No need to be smug, UK! Being outside the € is not the best option: dragged down by the crisis, but no say in solving it
