6:05 pm
to go eat the only you name it police deal very roofless lee with all demonstrate this especially if these demonstrations against the austerity which is imperialist on these nations by brussels and for these same people to go and tell the ukrainian government that they are heavy handed with their demonstrate this is just hypocrisy . ukraine's presidential elections coming up in early two thousand and fifteen in the e.u. plans to revisit the agreement sometime during that year he says it wasn't offered enough economic support from the e.u. but the block has stated it won't change its terms or peace paul scott takes a look at how the deal on arrival. it's. a moment of on power allowed access the ukrainian president viktor janak ovitz comes face to face with a huge lead as for the first time since stilling won an historic trade deal the whole thing caught on camera i think it was
6:06 pm
i did. it i think i. it's clear that k.s. decision to hold for seedings has rankled a unique is flowing ease of negotiations they you sense is outside influence we have to set aside short term political calculations. and we may not give to external pressure know the least from russia going to college it says the financial deal on offer isn't large enough to prevent damage to ukraine's flailing economy of course neither ukrainian businesses nor the government have this amount of money or will have any time soon that's why ukraine is not ready to take responsibilities he's not capable of fulfilling yet oh so where does this leave the situation ukraine's proposals for trilateral talks with

6:22 pm

a major accidents etc on the autobahn this is on the streets off side the autobahn and this is already very limited. and for some it's a clear indicator of the european commission overtaking which should be national muscles the problem at the moment is that many of those rules are being made by the commission and are not being subject to democratic accountability in the european parliament and that seems to me is is the source of a lot of the frustration and tensions in countries a decision on whether to move ahead with the idea is expected in the new year german drivers however have already made up their minds that it will kill the joy of driving. i am against speed limit it will cost us jobs but all the law will not allow that to happen people will fall asleep at that speed the whole reason we
6:24 pm
built beautiful roads was to drive on them properly it's going to be a tough one for the e.u. to come to. germans that their speed should be in the hands of brussels now till. i was dxed the germans. to the french or roast beef to the british. not things are they going to want to give up control of easily. these are all of a. any. size or a board coming up after this short break stay with us you're on our. i hate to be a downer but i really think the olympics have lost all meaning in the past when
6:25 pm
there was the cold war it was like a battle between two ideologies taking place in the abstract and the one nine hundred thirty six olympics nazi pseudo science their self-proclaimed superiority was put on trial for the whole world to see and spent the olympics having the majority of the countries on earth participating they're now horribly horribly bland one could argue that they have become a great way for countries to show off their acts used to build up some infrastructure by i think this is a big misconception let's look back to the two thousand lympics and beijing yes china is really develop in the last twenty years but the olympics really teach us anything about this country with a radically different political system or anything about their ancient culture or the way they think or the way they live you know nothing at all all we saw were some flags and some pandas that rather unique stadium which was mostly the work of a swiss company yeah i hate to say it but i think the olympic flame is kind of burnt out over the years although i have to admit that saying the torch in the space was kind of neat i think that when and if the world ever becomes an ideological battle ground again then the olympics will become worth watching but for now it's just generic sports from generic countries
6:26 pm
a generic stadiums but that's just my opinion. welcome to the kaiser report imax kaiser there's a dangerous new idea in the news this week and it's called a need. which is the ability to live without food the world comes from catholic tradition whereby states are said to have been able to live long periods of time without any sustenance but the eucharist as always modern humans have taken this idea to a whole new level of stupidity by following a practice called breath unerring ism rather than eat or drink followers of their birth area and diet gulp air feeling hungry just go pear thirsty go up more air on the plus side there's air gulping diet saves time and energy that would normally be
6:27 pm
spent on cleaning up or washing the dishes on the down side betty soon die of starvation but anyway i know what you're thinking you're thinking this stupid diet sounds a whole lot like central banking and you'd be right when the economy is starving followers of the central banking diet don't turn to wealth creation for sustenance they go pear yes credit is created out of thin air need a job here's where ben bernanke who does he go bear markets crashing janet yellen just gulps air and just as with breath unerring ism the upside is that a whole lot of time and energy is saved is not actually having to work for a living on the downside many worlds die of starvation. you see this sounds like an excellent idea diet. well let's look at this diet of gulping air as applied to central banking first the government dominated bond market this is an article about
6:28 pm
j.p. morgan's report looking at supply and demand in the global bond market in twenty fourteen and the black and gray parts are government official demand i government and government and central bank buying accounts for one point six trillion more than half of the bond buying so far this year right well i feel this conversation and evidently moving toward this idea of the eucharist and transubstantiation which was part of the catholic tradition that the we for in the wine are not virtual facsimiles of jesus but they are actually through the process of transubstantiation actual. what can i say that it's. jesus this is jesus so this is what the central banks have taken on is transubstantiation as applies to monetary theory in quantitative easing when they buy back their own bonds. they are recognizing the fact that their activity is not a virtual facsimile of an economic activity but it is godlike in that it is the
6:29 pm
activity that is the economy itself it has been bernanke he has become a god head and instead of walking on water he's walking on paper walk in a paper yeah. own walk in a paper yeah yeah but i don't think we're going to have a lousy like moment you know where they put him in the crypt and then he goes up to heaven i think they're going to put this guy into the crypt and the economy is going to go stinko south though obliterate oh well felix salmon looks deeper into this j.p. morgan article in the report about the bond buying and what they find is meanwhile private banks particularly opposite side of the trade while they were huge buyers of bonds in two thousand and seven and two thousand and eight their net sellers in two thousand and thirteen and twenty fourteen more or less completely negating the buying pressure from pension funds insurance companies bond funds and retail investors and.
