As Greece Prepares To Auction Off The Acropolis, Austria Is Selling Its Mountains
by Tyler Durden
Have €121,000 lying around? Enjoy hiking in smallish central European countries with picturesque villages? Then this deal is for you. While its new European banker overlords are pushing Greece to sell off, pardon, “privatize” the bulk of its most monetizable assets, Austria has already seen the writing on the wall, and in a very proactive step, iss offering to see two mountain peaks in the Austrian Alps. From AP: “Two 2,000-metre (6,500-feet) mountain peaks in eastern Tyrol — the “Grosse Kinigat” and the “Rosskopf” — are up for sale for just 121,000 euros ($175,800) for the pair. On its website, Austria’s federal real estate company, the Bundesimmobiliengesellschaft or BIG, proudly boasts that the two peaks offer the “most stunning views of the Carnic Alps and are popular destinations for mountain climbers and hikers”.” As to why Austria is suddenly scrambling to sell mountains, nobody really knows: “”It’s a mystery to me why they’re wanting to sell the peaks right now,” the mayor of the tiny village of Kartitsch, Josef Ausserlechner, told the Austrian news agency APA. “In Greece, they’re selling off islands. In Austria, it’s the mountains,” he fumed.” Lastly, the reason doesn’t matter. What is certain is that some Goldman dodecatuple secret shell holding SPV will end up being the buyer. And where Greece and Austria have already ventured, so shall the rest of Europe boldly go very soon as the banking syndicate soon ends up owning literally everything.
