Hmm... I don't know about you guys, but I getting the sense that everything seems to me to be pointing towards a calm before a rather large storm... So what's everyone reckon? How long until this whole EU debt crisis enters the final climax? Can EU leaders really buy another 6 - 12 months? Or will this all have gone pear shaped in the first couple of months of 2012? And once the EU governments go into meltdown, will Japan go with it this time, or will investors still see the Yen as a safe haven? No doubt the EU and Japanese problems will help buy the US government some time. Whilst I don't have a lot of faith in politicians in the best of times, you'd think the US politicians will finally sort out their disagreements, to finally agree on the fact if they can't come to an agreement on radical fiscal adjustments the US bond market will also suffer the same fate. Maybe 2012 will also be the end of pork barrel politics? Me thinks it's going to be a hum dinger of a 2012. What do you guys reckon?
