Greece: A New Dawn Or A Damp Squib? - 01.30.15

January 30, 2015

Letter from the new Prime Minister to a leading German business newspaper. He lays it out fair-and-square. A short clip from David Stockman trashing the Fed. Feels like I was given the day off! The story behind the brusque realignment of the Swiss currency which broke its parity with the euro last week. This is a very bad omen for the euro. The U.S. is fast losing ground in terms of business startup activity. Story of a Chinese man who walked into a bank, opened an account and made a 12 million yuan deposit, only to find that there was no bank. The façade was just a front. Giving money to real banks in the west may yet have the same effect. You could lose it all. These banks are mostly insolvent. Who cares if they have shop fronts or not? Remember, when you deposit money in a bank, you become a 

A Bygone Era Floats Away - 01.26.15

January 26, 2015

There used to be a valid phenomenon known as American Exceptionalism. It is no more. We examine its passing in detail. The creation of a different entity, freed from prior restraints morphed into the likeness of other nations, including a bland sameness that is the hallmark of American life today. Mediocrity results. More on war and the seeming obsession that governments seem to have to whip up warlike sentiments. It is all entirely hokey. We have a close look at the falseness of the reasoning behind the security apparatus, etc. and what it means to the people in general. The virulent anger and criticisms leveled at Russia seem to have no basis. There is no proof or evidence offered for the crazy assertions of the American government. The European debt situation and the recent Greek elections yesterday and the hopelessness of ‘QE’. Quick comment on the St [...]

The Future Of America - 01.23.15

January 23, 2015

Obama’s State Of The Union speech did not carry one single mention of the word ‘debt’, the most overwhelming problem of the United States today. Totally ignored. Absolute, total and utter denial. Over $18 trillion. Not worth a passing comment, huh? Poor America. At least the Greeks are in trouble and they know it! For America it’s just business-as-usual. Americans work harder and harder for less and less. Everything is broken. Humpty Dumpty will never be put together again. Mismanagement, arrogance, stupidity, a toxic mix if ever there was one… A brief list of major corporations’ current lay-off plans. Horrendous Christmas sales statistics. The current situation in Europe. Preconditions for the coming financial crisis. China’s nuclear weapon strike strategy.

Wake Up Call - Housing Smash: The Encore - 01.19.15

January 19, 2015

Detailed information concerning the housing market and why it’s due to take another terrible tumble. Home builders are languishing and their earnings are reflecting their ‘subdued’ stock price in the market. The so-called ‘housing recovery’ is and has been a fraud from the beginning. Along with housing we have the economy itself, erroneously believed to be ‘recovering’. Just empty words from the government and its side-kick: the mainstream media. Falling oil prices are an extreme negative, as well. Zillow also believes house price changes are about to go negative. More statistics showing how China has taken manufacturing away from the U.S. A word on the absurdity of economics as a concept. A few words for would-be college attendees and their parents. A brief history of U.S. foreign policy meddling.

Wake Up Call - Assessment Of America - 01.16.15

January 16, 2015

An account of the way in which America is viewed from outside the country and how that view has changed in recent times. People are more perplexed than anything else. They (especially in Europe) don’t understand why America has such a cruel and heartless approach to social problems. They can’t understand why the country is unraveling and yet there are virtually no social programs to assist those in need. An explanation of the Swiss decision to unhook the Swiss franc from the euro. Significant discrepancies exist between the published economic figures and reality. The wrong policies are responsible. American business deaths now outnumber business births for the first time in 35 years. The global financial markets are facing more serious risks than in 2008. There is failure at every level. Banks simply cannot repair the economic problems of the country by [...]

Wake Up Call - We’re All Extremists Now - 01.12.15

January 12, 2015

The recent tragic event in Paris has predictably been used as the excuse to promise even more ‘security’ and curtailment of freedom. Obama talks about ‘extremists’. We examine here the implications of that fateful word. I provide a list of 72 government-listed ‘extremists’. This is nothing short of terrifying. You really could be next! An apt quote from Ron Paul. An update on the economy. All roads lead to debt! Stark comparison between Germany (success-story) and Italy (a failure on all counts). America wants to fight. They want to attack Korea even after it has been revealed that Korea was not behind the recent hacking. Addicted to bubbles. A major financial crisis is on the way to break the addiction. We are at the nascent stages of the post-labor world. Jobs are simp [...]

So Why Is The Dollar Rising? - 01.09.15

January 9, 2015

We approach this discussion by differentiating between ‘taxation regimes’ and ‘money-printing regimes’. Simply put, taxation regimes make more money if the country as a whole makes more money through increased wealth creation. Money-printing regimes try to increase their circulation zones since the injection of new money into the system can only be done by the equivalent creation of debt. This has nothing whatever to do with the creation and/or expansion of wealth. No reform of the system is possible without removing the money printers from power. More on the oil melt-down (still in progress). This is not having a positive effect on consumers’ desire to shop. Consumer discretionary spending is collapsing. The figures are truly alarming. An analysis of the unemployment report which was published today. Comparisons of today’s world wi [...]

Gambling With ‘QE’ In Deflationary Times - 01.05.15

January 5, 2015

The 2015 introductory edition… The theme-of-the-year remains “War”. The grand unraveling as viewed through the eyes of Japan. The unthinkable amounts of debt jammed into the system by insane central bankers with no possible idea of what they were trying to achieve. This was irrational behavior at its most extreme. The entire edifice must collapse since the debt is totally unpayable. Japan is the poster-child of mass irresponsibility by government. It is impossible to analyse the mindset of such incredible, mass stupidity. The entire world is infected. The gravity of all this is unparalleled in all of time. Casinos and their future. A few words on the TPP which Obama is determined to push through (though no one seems to know why it’s so important to him). It must be stopped.
