If “Europe Is Fine” Why Is Deutsche Bank Deleveraging At The Fastest Pace Since The Crisis of 2011?

(ZeroHedge) – Early today, Deutsche Bank disappointed markets when it reported a second quarter Net Income number of €335 million, or half of what the company made in the previous quarter, and less than half of what consensus expected. However, just like in the US, where as we showed previously it was FASB accounting gimmicks that “allowed” Bank of America to convert a loss into a $4 billion profit, so Deutsche Bank’s real Net Income, aka its Total Comprehensive Loss, number when factoring all the other MTM Income Statement components such as AFS, FX translation and pension adjustments, was lower by €1.1 billion.

U.S. Roads, Bridges are Decaying Despite Stimulus Influx

WEB Notes: Our nation crumbles in more ways than one.

(KSDK) – As car after car is jolted by cracked asphalt on a less-than-1-mile stretch of road connecting Route 39 to the New York border, it becomes clear why state transportation officials grade the pavement of this winding western Connecticut road as being in poor condition.

Edges of the two-lane road – where a sign says Col. Henry Ludington passed by in 1777 to repel “British raiders” – are worn and recessed, allowing rainwater to pool.

Connecticut has the nation’s second-highest percentage of major roads – 48%, or 1,268 miles – with pavement in “poor” condition, and 25 other states have 20% or more in such condition, according to an exclusive analysis of the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) most recent data by transportation research group TRIP and USA TODAY.
