John Taylor Says “To Hell With Germany”
by Tyler Durden
When the founder of the world’s largest currency hedge fund FX Concepts says that Greece will be out of money by June and out of the Euro soon after, people should listen. While we disagree with the premise that Greece’s exit will not be chaotic, his general thoughts on the situation in Europe, espoused in this Bloomberg TV interview, are summed up by his reply when asked if Europe is a sell “I do. I also feel passionately that the euro is effectively a break up.” Taylor also points out that the stability of a post-Greece Euro landscape is really up to the ECB noting that “I think the ECB should let the Euro go down. To hell with Germany.” Covering whether the Euro will crater, the contagion effects, and how the rest of Europe will behave, the non-Duran-Duran Taylor who readily admits his mistakes on misjudging the Fed’s excess, sees the timeline for exit as soon after the next round of elections in Greece this summer.
