Tonights Republican debate is focusing on national security and foreign policy issues. So far, the candidates have been unable to understand if the next Iranian regime will likely want nuclear weapons too.

I guess “Africa is a country”…and according to Rick Perry’s math “half a trillion” is actually equal to “500 million.”

we should spend even MORE money on Defense! – Mitt Romney

“Africa is a country on the brink.” – Rick Santorum

genocide overseas? Not our business, beer should be illegal – Ron Paul,

Iran has mountains and shit – Herman Cain

One, politics in Europe are local, not “European.”
Two, monetary, fiscal, and labor policy are at the core of the problems in the GIIPS.
Third, The EU had better identify itself and make its presence known- finally.

It is her “fight or flight” moment. The Entire EU hangs in the balance, and coupled with that the US economy. Sovereign debt and negative growth are actually spreading.

Mr. Monti and Mr. Papademos must play a role in tightening the fiscal policies and make the structural reforms needed. These technocrats, should provide a positive step in increasing pro investor policy.

“This is a question of whether we remain in the euro zone. This is very clear. It’s clear to everyone” – Papandreou

Ok, here is the itinerary: The ECB is meeting on November 3rd. The G20 is meeting on November 3-4, The Papandreou is attending on the 2nd day. A Eurogroup meeting will follow on November 7th, followed by an EU Ecofin meeting on November 8.
The Troika was meant to disburse the sixth tranche of the first program in the first or second week of November, as Papandreou returns from G20 weaker we may not see this funding pass.

Martin Coward, co-founder of Ikos Financial and estranged husband of Elena Ambrosiadou, is preparing to launch his own hedge fund. The FT reports the fund will be activated next year, using the same state of the art proprietary technology to benefit from high frequency trading that has lead to Ikos’s success.
Although Coward is the original code designer he does not have ownership of it.
Ms. Elena Ambrosiadou has put in place an injunction that is enforceable in the EU (UK & Cyprus) making it illegal for Mr. Coward from talking about Ikos or to any individual connected to the fund, ever.

Europe’s Besieged Banks, Relief….MF Global & Greece’s Ejection

EU banks have received a short period of relief from the unpleasant sovereign debt crisis of the GIIPS. As bank shares recovered from political efforts to provide a comprehensive program for resolving the crisis. The recent 29% writedown on Greek debt held by the private sector and a plan to help support bank racapitalisation by 106 billion euros by the end of June. Days following this deal and many assurences that investors would be 100% capable of raising equity, the MF Global bankruptcy this monday proves different.
This after Bernanke reassured congress in July that US banks exposure to troubled EU nations was “quite small.”
These writedowns and restructures are not enough, the EU does not have “months” to vote on approval. Markets are down accross the board. A decision must be made immediately. It looks as though Greece will be ejected from the Euro using the bail out fund to partially compensate the banks holding Greek debt within EU.

Since 1990, the poverty rate in Brazil has halved, declining on average by 1.2% a year. This year Brazil’s economy is forecast to grow by 3.6%. Brazil is on track to overtake Britain to become the sixth largest economy in the world.
With a GDP per person, at around $11,000, Brazilhas been growing at an average annual rate of 1.7% since 1990. Nevertheless, despite these government led initiatives further action is needed. 8.5% of Brazil’s population still live on less than $1.50 a day.

It appears the EFSF deal has been reached. As expected, it will be 1.4 trillion, by using 400-500% leverage on cash. Write down on Greek debt will be 50% (really 29%). Italy pledges to cut debt gdp ratio to 113% by 2013. The TARP, Euro banks will be funded with 30 billion for recapitalization.
