    And the way to fix every crisis is to just raise more money, a few hundred billion there maybe a few trillion there and just like the the crisis is gone, hahahahaha......this is just another fucking mess, so the way to fix each crisis is to just raise additional capital and pour it into the failing economies of the world. I keep forgetting there is no such thing as failure anymore, everything is fixed with more worthless money, they think the way to fix a crisis is with more trillions and trillions of dollars, thats a fucking joke, right?

    IMF Aiming to Raise $500 Billion to Fight Euro Crisis

    The International Monetary Fund is aiming to raise an additional $500 billion to help fight the European debt crisis, the organization said in a statement on Wednesday.

    “Based on staff’s estimate of global potential financing needs of about $1 trillion in the coming years, the Fund would aim to raise up to $500 billion in additional lending resources," the statement said.

    "This total includes the recent European commitment of about $200 billion in increased Fund resources. At this preliminary stage, we are exploring options on funding and will have no further comment until the necessary consultations with the Fund’s membership have been completed," it added.

    Earlier, a source had told CNBC the IMF was seeking to raise another $600 billion.

    That news echoed media reports last December, which said that the IMF was planning to put together $600 billion to lend to troubled euro zone states, but the financial institution denied the reports.

    In November, a report in Italian newspaper La Stampa which said that the IMF was preparing an aid package worth up to 600 billion euros ($798 billion) for Italy boosted European stocks, but was quickly denied by officials from the Fund.

    The additional funding needs will be discussed at the G20 meeting in Mexico City in February, the source said.

    This is chump change. I say we give it to them. Lehman crapped out for more than that. We probably spend that on dog food in the US.

    Save the Greeks. Save the Whales, under no circumstances "save" money.
  3. Good for stocks then.
