Submitted by David Stockman via Contra Corner blog,

The preposterous Gong Show in Brussels over the weekend was the financial "Ben Tre" moment for the Euro and ECB. That is, it was the moment when the Germans—-imitating the American military on that ghastly morning in February 1968——set fire to the Eurozone in order to save it.

Some day history will judge good riddance........but that get's ahead of the story.

According to an American soldier's first hand recollection of the Vietnam event, it was a Major Booris who infamously told reporter Peter Arnett, "It became necessary to destroy the town to save it".

After the massacre of Greek democracy in the wee hours Monday morning, Angela Merkel said the same thing—even if her language was a tad less graphic:

It reflects the basic principles which we've followed in rescuing the euro. It now hinges on step-by-step implementation of what we agreed tonight."

Now no one in their right mind could think that lending another $96 billion to an utterly bankrupt country makes any sense whatsoever. After all, the Greek economy has shrunk by 30% since 2008 and is wreathing under what is objectively a $400 billion public debt already in place today.

That figure follows from the fact that on top of Greece's acknowledged $360 billion of general government debt there's at least another $25 billion loa ...

The Value Of Google Just Increased By More Than The Market Cap Of 415 S&P500 Companies

Google's result were good (even if the top-line revenue missed), but what investors were looking for, and what had pressured GOOG's stock price for the past year, was concern that runaway hiring and spending were eating away at the bottom line. And that is precisely what Ruth Porat, who was poached from Morgan Stanley in March, decided to give to investors when she said just two words on the call: "expense management."

For those who thought $70M was too rich for a CFO... All Ruth Porat said was "expense management" and Google's market cap soars $56B.

â€" Erik Schatzker (@ErikSchatzker) July 17, 2015

What happened next is the single biggest surge in GOOG market cap in history: at last check the stock was up 14% on the day, equivalent to about $55 billion increase in market cap in just one day.

Putting this in perspective, just today, the value of Google has increased by more than the market cap of 415 S&P 500 companies!

Below is a representative sample showing how the $55 billion intraday increase stacks relative to the market cap of some other S&P 500 companies.
