55 billion

I swear that banks are screwing with us, just to blow our tiny minds for the fun of it. Germany has "suddenly" found over 55 billion euros.
Somebody added 2+2 and got -55 billion. Come on!

Re: 55 billion

In 1996 the US government "Found" $400Bn stored in a congressional vault. Over the next three years it was used to balance the budget. Funny how that works.

I just found five hundred Francs in a purse I haven't used for over a year. Think I'll loan it to UBS.

If you can lose money overnight by your assets suddenly losing value, why can't you gain it in the same fashion?

I don't think its a truck load of notes they forgot to check in to the Federal Reserve!
