    “Mood Disorder” – waking up in a Vegas hotel room with a hangover, a facial tattoo, a lady named Champagne (when your wife’s name isn’t), and a pending felony indictment.

    Also, the Spanish data service is saying budget cuts in the new austerity package will mean it can’t provide any more data as of January.  Currently they provide over 300 measures of Spain’s economy, many of which are required by the EU.

    Austerity for Spain is about as likely to work as it is for Greece, although for different reasons.  Spain’s already in a deep recession, it’s a case of too little, too late to help but just in time to finish the dive into default.

    France’s last bond auction was successful even though their bonds were sold at negative interest:  you not only earn no interest, you have to pay them for the privilege of lending them money without it!  Who buys into such a deal?  Someone expecting future deflation to hammer values.
