Comments on: Felix TV: The triple-A bond chart http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2011/07/22/felix-tv-the-triple-a-bond-chart/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: fresnodan http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2011/07/22/felix-tv-the-triple-a-bond-chart/comment-page-1/#comment-28894 Mon, 25 Jul 2011 08:54:13 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=9080#comment-28894 I agree with Starkman. To me the interesting question will be when the bond holders figure out that when the government needs 5 or 6% inflation, what will happen.

Love this one, and your big point — the amount and proportion of AAA on the market is both ridiculous scary — is great. But you go straight from “we had all these bubble-era ABS, and they blew up” to “and now we have all this sovereign debt.” Somebody should make the point that much of the new sovereign debt represents the public either taking on the private debt or otherwise dealing with the consequences of the earlier implosion. So allow me.

Furthermore nobody at this time assumes the debt is risk free either. AAA is a label the government permits rating agencies to post on debt that permits zero risk based weighting. The damage caused by a down grade is the result of all the capital banks must now put up against that dodgy downgraded debt.

I was one of those “Felix Salmon smackdown” writers adding my chorus to what Yves Smith said about your post… although I think my post is more salient.

Are we watching a middle aged dude standing in front of some monitors at NASDAQ or a Paul Greengrass Jason Bourne movie?

But to the matter at hand, isn’t this chart yet another nail in the coffin to the notion that the rating’s agencies are pure shite?

Your hand movements are getting more to the point (except the one where you make your self bigger in the scary monster hands above your head pose) and were fitting the video.
