If anybody can verify this information at the ECB's website please let me know in comments. I could not find any releases relating to the unscheduled tenders.
If you have no luck either despite all the transparency pledges, have at least a look at the design for the new ECB headquarters in Frankfurt: Two leaning 185 meter towers that will dwarf all other banks in continental Europe's leading financial centre, leading to a dark vision where the central bank falls and maims the lesser ones. The building in the front appears like a heavily fortified sweatshop and I wonder whether the windowless wall structures will withstand the inflation missile that is in clear sight.
My online broker just snapped that a European bank is supposed to crawl in the gutter, getting flattened by - you guessed right - subprime. I knew these foolhardy acts of monetary inflation would show up within a few days. So we can move the guessing game from "when" to "who?"
