Halloween is here and the trickery and treatery treachery continues to cause market turmoil. That is, AIG's business with feeding and playing with the Derivatives Beast is now unwinding in the typical way such deals end: the monster eats its master. Right now, it is eating up $144 billion of US taxpayer funds. Also, the DTCC is in the news again because of its own relationship with this same fearful monster, the Derivatives Beast. And the Japanese savers are now being eaten by this same critter! Who would have guessed? And commodity inflation is again, taking off as Japan drops its interest rate to 0.3% and the US to 1%. Who would have guessed again? HAHAHA.
