Anyone have any info on how the Central Banks are doing? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Before rollover, many folks were concerned about the "Cascading Cross Default" scenario among the Central Banking community. I am wondering if anyone has seen/heard anything about this. Obviously, it'll be tough to get reliable info from the realm of the "grey men". Just curious.

No one has told me anything.

Somebody told me something but I can't tell you.

Let me assure you that everything is fine. There is a little bit of excess liquidity which I injected before the CDC which drove the stock market up a little to much. I will raise the interest rates next month, the stock market will correct, and Y2K will be history.

I saved the world from cascading cross defaults. I will send you the bill.

Yours as always;

LOL Alan!

Ya know, you seem to be pretty lucid. The last time I saw you on TeeVee, you looked like you were ready to keel over! Feelin' better now?

Because of the installation and verification of CCD disgronification software in the months prior to the rollover, any potential CCD problems at the Central Banks were identified and resolved by Tuesday. Now that I know all my money is safe, I'd like to thank all the DT's who made the y2k rollover so uneventful! (Wish they'd found a way to wipe out any records of my mortgage though...)

"Disgronification" software??!! Sounds like something they use for the removal of troubling 'nads!

Thanks for clearing that up for me...NOT!

"Disgronification" software??!!

Sounds like a some sort of sickness.

I paid my mortgage to GMAC and they confirmed receiving it on December 23. As of today, the check has not cleared my bank. It usually takes a day or two.

I hear John Krepansky has the answers to this question.

He's very knowledgeable on all fronts.

The guy's a walking encyclopedia of nuclear, chemical safety, stock market and banking information.

I'm certain you have seen one of his posts.

He's really a stupid bitter little dork but he sure does know a lot about everything.
