The (tight money) culture that is Dutch

Just when it seemed the image of bankers couldn’t get any more battered or bizarre, the Dutch central bank has fired a 46-year-old female employee claimed to have been working after hours as a highly paid prostitute – specialising in sadomasochism.

The Dutch central bank forbids “indecent behavior,” she had failed to register with the local chamber of commerce or pay appropriate taxes, and she was in violation of zoning laws.

"specialising in sadomasochism."

Well, yeah she worked for the central bank, right? Zing. /ducks

Not enough tightening!

Darn. I just noticed TC already used that one. Give me a minute...

Whip Inflation Now!

Athens is apparently trying to remember their safe word.

Call that an asset? That's not an asset. Do I need to be dealing with a Bad Bank you pathetic excuse for a balance sheet!

THERE WILL BE NO INFLATION UNTIL I SAY THERE WILL BE INFLATION!

FC wins with the 'WIN' comment.

450 Euros per hour in exchange for being zero-bound...

I am shocked, just shocked, by the Dutch authorities heteronormative patriarchal oppression! They are infringing a woman's right to choose to express her sexuality in a healthy and, indeed, politically subversive, manner. No doubt they were not breast fed long enough or something.

So she violated the occasional zoning law? This does not mean she should be punished. Laws need to take into account this woman's intersectionaility and the long history of gender oppression in the Dutch Reformed Church.

We should all boycott clogs and Gouda until this comrade is reinstated.

C+ at best.

my safeword is liquidity

I'm not saying I have strikingly similar intel on Janet Yellen, but I'm also not saying I don't.

Actually, I know (don't ask) that this is DSK in a new disguise.

This article is not really true. She had registered her business at the chember of commerse, and she was paying taxes. What surprises me is that Dutch central bank did not know about it for 7 years, which is hard to believe. They took action only after they got blackmailed.

Alas it was the zoning laws that did her in.

We take our erogenous zoning very seriously here.

3% 3% 3% 3%...

a confllct of sado-masochistic interests perhaps ?

She role played as an SS commandant! How many of the Dutch are Nazis? How many of the Dutch feel a sense of guilt and shame for collaborating with the Germans? The Dutch collaborated with their German occupiers and segregated and then sent over 100,000 Jews to concentration camps (including Auschwitz) where only 5,200 survived. Do the Dutch engage in sexual role playing to assuage their guilt and shame?

Which Dutch?

Be careful of the nervous laughter.

Whoa, you don't just fire a highly paid sadomasochist!

Sounds like the Dutch central bank will be getting a good hard spanking.
