    Pricing of debt in many cases is meaningless at the moment.

    The FT recently cited Philippines Sov debt which yields 3.6% today. It cost 800 bps to insure against a default in 2008 and today the price is 100bps.

    Swiss 10 year yield is 0.4% or so. Totally overvalued.

    “Tracking Global Demand for liberalized Economy Sovereign Debt”

    These units no longer have a advanced workforce capable of anything but selling insurance.
    The UK no longer has the capacity to build a single reactor.
    France struggles to build one reactor with Marx brothers like night at the opera stuff in Finland…………
