The Pension Crisis – 08.01.2016

July 31, 2016

The consequences of failed, long-term pension projections to the public. The inevitability of total breakdown within the pension system. You will not be paid. The outcome will be a nightmare for all concerned. You must take action now. Deflation and negative rates are pension poison. Major, international, highly-leveraged banks are tottering on the edge of solvency.  Homeownership is currently at a record low. Dallas manufacturing stats negative for the 19th consecutive month. Corporate earnings have declined for four consecutive quarters. Durable goods orders continue weak. Work itself has got dramatically harder over the last thirty years.

Education With A Difference - Friday, July 29, 2016

July 28, 2016

Efforts to identify the conditions most likely to promote satisfying human lives. Choosing a career. Money versus passion. The secrets of self-taught achievers. The fate of Europe: it looks more-and-more like the 20th century horrors were a prelude to the ultimate cataclysm. How did the world reach its current social and economic impasse? Nearly every major western government is bankrupt. What to do as individuals to protect ourselves.

For non-donors there is a message recorded today that you might like to listen to (repeated in the general show for donors) that, hopefully, might inspire you to go to the 'Donate' tab on the left of this page, donate (requested $70/quarterly, min. $30/quarterly) and listen to the hourly shows twice a week.
 
What social policy has in store for America in the future. Quick stock market comment. White House report on student debt. Politicians lying. Debts will never be repaid: lessons from history. The U.S. still beating up on Iran. Quick comment on negative interest rates. World debt currently at $300 trillion: how we got there. Back to the future! Why it is slated to be so grim.

Stock Market Highs: Corruption And Deception – 07.22.2016

July 21, 2016

Monumental increases in drug prices: how they do it. Stock market new highs: the players, the lies, the corruption, the sleight-of-hand, all orchestrated by the Federal Reserve. The unthinkable has happened: investors have been set up to have their heads handed to them a third time! Legacy of the automobile. How many people are killed by the police? More on Deutsche Bank. The toxic effects of ‘optimism’.

The Economic Consequences Of Debt – 07-18-2016

July 17, 2016

Massive debt can only produce lower growth. There is no other way. And the politicians know it. Increasing debt is just the means to get reelected. The wealth gap and the perversion of capitalism. Bankruptcies and defaults are soaring. The stock market. The growth and destruction of our major banks. 50% of all food is wasted in America.

Build-Up To War – 07.15.2016

July 14, 2016

The U.S. seems determined to up the ante. Even Germany is expressing concern. This will not end well. The Chilcot Report, finally out after 7 years in preparation, castigates Blair and the U.S. The warmongers are ready for more of the same. Comment on the reckless, worldwide central bank policies and the stock market. Japan’s new, misguided push to run the printing presses again. Bernanke is in Tokyo, ready to ‘help out’. The June payroll report. Plenty of evidence that it was an outlier. Americans are too poor to shop, except for necessities, according to a new study by ARG showing that people are overwhelmingly pessimistic about the future.

Millennials - 07-11-2016

July 10, 2016

An appreciation of millennials by a millennial. Not pretty! The Chilcot report castigates Bush and Blair. The lies behind the current unemployment report. Deutsche Bank. Alan Greenspan: a retroactive look. Reasons to own international bank accounts. Growing tally of corporate defaults. Suspension of property redemptions in London. Brexit and resentment of immigrants.

Suicide - 07.08.2016

July 8, 2016

The demographics and origins of suicide. A new study. Some surprising facts. The historical reality of 'power'. 1 in 10 voters would prefer a giant meteor crashing into Earth over support for Clinton or Trump! New book recommendation by a nuclear weaponry expert. Sobering. Italy careening towards financial Armageddon. More on American brutality. 71% of Americans believe the economic system is rigged. Final words from Nigel Farage as he exits public life.

Free At Last! - 07.04.2016

July 4, 2016

Listen to Nigel Farage's (last?) speech to the European Parliament. It's quite a tour de force...  The people's anger laid bare. A Pew Research report shows America's hegemony receding further. Another survey found foreigners overwhelmingly find Americans 'violent, greedy and arrogant'. Deutsche Bank seen as the greatest systemic risk to the world by the IMF. The absurd praise given to the EU by European intellectuals. More general observations on Brexit. Income inequality. Canada sending troops to the border with Russia. Brexit 'Remainers' now blame Brexit for all the woes of the world!

I am releasing my show from last Monday to everyone, with my comments about Brexit, as a Memorial Day Special.
