IMF's Lagarde – Perpetuating Untruths on a Massive Scale?
June 09, 2014

The Golden Bear: Pure Directed History?
June 05, 2014

The Direction of Equity Marts Seems Clearer than the Economy's
June 04, 2014
We believe equity marts are headed higher still. But we are not so certain about the direction of the larger economy, either in the US or overseas. However, this article, excerpted above, seems to take it as a given that the US economy is headed up. In the long ...

Mainstream Media Versus National Security: A Portrait in Irony
June 03, 2014
We have sympathy for James Risen, even admiration, but it is considerably tempered by the newspaper for which he works. The New York Times – as the face of the Eastern metropolitan elite – has consistently enabled the US imperium and provided justifications ...

Flawed Assumptions of Bilderberg Secrecy
May 30, 2014

The Strange Tale of Swiss Banking – And What It Means for You
May 30, 2014

Capitalism, Worth Fighting For?
May 29, 2014
There is apparently consternation among those who define the West's dominant social themes. Keynesian economics is clearly not working and needs a reset (or so we are told), as we analyzed in yesterday's article. And now we can see clearly in the above excerpt ...
Olympics, a Collapsing Meme
May 29, 2014

Reuters Suggests a New Economics to Take the Place of the Neoclassical Model: Good Luck With That

May 28, 2014

Hawks Take Flight: Why the Fed's Hypocritical Dialectic Continues
May 23, 2014

Underestimate the Internet at Your Peril

Does the National Security Media Abet the Surveillance State?
May 20, 2014

Global Warming: The Incredible Shrinking Meme
May 20, 2014

Drug Legalization Around the World: The Dialectic Evolves
May 19, 2014

Desperation of the Elites: S&P Declares Climate Change a 'Mega Trend'
May 16, 2014

Apocalypse Later: The BOE is Surely Not so Oblivious as It Appears
May 15, 2014
There is probably nothing more destructive to Western economies than interest rates that are held down for too long. That's what is going on currently and it will surely end horribly. In between, the Wall Street Party we've predicted will probably move forward ...
Why Departures of Three Top Female Editors Fails to Spark a Predictable Meme

Freedom Is Not Pragmatism

Drum the Market, Ride the Wave
May 12, 2014
This article drums up the market. It makes the point that equity market gains in the first four months have been more limited than at any time since 2009 — "just 1.6 percent on the S&P 500." At the same time, bonds have done much better. It's time to sell, ri ...
Scottish Independence: More Important to the City or Scotland?
May 12, 2014

Oligarchy in the 21st Century … Get Used to It?
May 09, 2014

Uruguay's New Regs: Unreasonable on Purpose?
May 09, 2014
Uruguay legalized cannabis, but perhaps infighting between anti-drug warriors and tolerant "new wavers" has resulted in a setback – as the legalization is fraught with government control. Is this what we call "directed history"? Right after Uruguay legalized ...
The Cannabis Conspiracy?
May 08, 2014
