Thats’ why companies are borrowing money they don’t need, at ridiculously low rates, and parking it on their balance sheet. That IS securing things.

Glad you’re not in their positions, though, since you seem to not know exactly what your argument is.

The EU is practically up in flames, Japan is busy trying to stimulate its own economy, to speak nothing of China, and you think the tea leaves for the market read ‘borrow at will’? That’s probably what the Greek politicians thought a few years ago, and what got them into this crisis!

We’re not rats, you know. Just because the cheese (or heroin) is offered to you, does not mean you have to take it. Especially when you know it’s poisoned.

Were I in these people’s positions, I would take this as a lull in the storm, and spend some time securing things. The market has shown that she is very, very temperamental these days, due no doubt in part to the various people playing fast and loose with the ‘rules.’

But why focus on not-fun things like paying off debt, setting up more secure holdings, etc., when you can party like it’s 2000, and blow that money like it’s coke! And hey, if they start running low, don’t worry -> they can always print more!
