Carney Gets Ready to Blow Up the World
October 29, 2013
This article is truly scary. Like a bullet across the bow, or the crack of a whip, it announces with certainty that the world's top bankers intend to blanket the world with faux currency. They don't give a hoot. They're out to give us the business and bust the ...
Economy Coming in High and Hard
October 29, 2013
In the other article in this issue, we indicated that the sociopaths running central banks were not going to be satisfied until they'd inflated markets far past where they've ever been logically or historically. But there is one caveat to this scenario that Blo ...
America's Slippage Is Obama's Fault … or Not
October 28, 2013
Talk about "crocodile tears." This McClatchy article lists why foreign leaders are upset with the US but hardly a word of it is true. It's part of a larger narrative now being established that the US is losing its "leadership position" and that like other might ...
EU Leaders Plot New Crisis?
October 28, 2013
We've written in the past about how certain European Union leaders made statements that a fiscal crisis would eventually drive a deeper political union. Well, they got their crisis, a rolling one, but the deeper union is taking a good deal of time to consolidat ...
Let Our Debt Scrub Our Brains
October 25, 2013
This is kinda out of the blue. Broke individuals tend to borrow on the off chance that they'll be able to reimburse the money next time round. Usually that doesn't happen, which is why it is a bad reason to borrow when you're already not making it. Better to pu ...
Finally, the End of Keynesianism
October 25, 2013
Are you a Keynesian? So many seem to be. Do you really believe that a properly functioning, mathematically literate approach to high finance can salvage what's left of the financial systems of the US, the West, the entire world? Top central bankers apparently d ...
Facebook: Changing the Face of Mercantilism
October 24, 2013
Facebook is an example of how corporate America has gone off the proverbial tracks. It is, unfortunately, a powerful signifier about how finance works in the 21st century, in the West anyway. It surely holds various lessons for investors. For speculators, ident ...
Global Warming – A Dangerous Insanity on Many Levels
October 24, 2013
This article was posted at the Drudge Report and elsewhere with a headline referring to its claim of US$1 billion dollars a day in expenditures. The real news, therefore, was not that the world's spending was "flatlining" but that a billion was being spent ever ...
Stagflation of the 2000s
October 23, 2013
There has been criticism aimed at the free-market economic paradigm over the past few years. But as far as we can see, it's been correct. In fact, as we can see from this excerpt, the only model that makes any sense these days is the one that has predicted for ...
What Is Fed's Third Mandate?
October 23, 2013
We hardly know what to make of this. The US Federal Reserve is responsible for maintaining a healthy level of employment and also a stable money supply. It doesn't do either because it can't, and thus has now received what is basically a third vast responsibili ...
Economist Mag: Just Print, Baby
October 22, 2013
Just when we believed the lunacy couldn't get any worse, here comes The Economist magazine with a diagnosis for fixing what ails the US: Print more money. Print it hard and fast. This analysis focuses on the proverbial "liquidity trap." It is, of course, a Keyn ...
Swiss Turn to Legislation to Save Capitalism?
October 22, 2013
We retain a level of respect for Swiss society, though the Swiss political class seems to be doing what it can to damage what's good and increase the bad. The article seems to show the Swiss are fighting back. The Swiss bank-based economy is certainly under att ...
Debunking the Recovery Meme – A Lousy Job but Someone's Got to Do It
October 21, 2013
The only real recovery that is taking place in the US or Britain or the EU is a financial industry recovery. Sooner or later stocks are likely going a lot higher and the mainstream media is going to report on this manipulation as if it is representative of a mi ...
Healthcare: The Technocracy Strikes Out
October 21, 2013
This article in The Wall Street Journal seemed noteworthy to us because it was actually honest about the current disaster that is Obamacare. Because of this, it is also attacking a main elite meme of "technocracy," the idea that government is filled with effici ...
No, Economist – the Real Problem of Big Science Is Big Banking
October 18, 2013
The Economist has focused on one of the enduring scandals of the past century – which is how science and scientific research has been perverted by the pressures of modernity. We've written about this a good deal, of course, and our conclusion is that science, ...
The Taper: Reality and Myth
October 18, 2013
Seldom in any modest-sized article do we find so many dominant social themes presented in such a rapid-fire way. Ostensibly, this Reuters article excerpted above is simply an examination of the tapering timeline. But such a simple subject yields up one problema ...
Shutdown Ending but Larger Difficulties Remain
October 17, 2013
As of our deadline, the US Congress had struck a deal to end a government shutdown, as described in the Jerusalem Post article, excerpted above. The Post explains how the shutdown occurred and mentions the main ramification, which is that Fitch Ratings is ready ...
Money Play? New Media Strikes Back
October 17, 2013
In this article, we will comment on the New Media venture referred to in this blog from the standpoint of information control and also from a Daily Bell perspective. Ultimately, what is going on may reveal business opportunities, and we'll mention those as well ...
Fama's Nobel and the Non-Science of Investing
October 16, 2013
The Nobel Prize was NOT awarded to Eugene Fama and his colleagues this week, though the same loosely affiliated cabal that tries to make central banking into a technocratic discipline wants you to think it was. And today, we take advantage of this. The awarding ...
Now France to Break Away From EU? Stay Tuned
October 16, 2013
In our quest to quantify what we call the Internet Reformation, the Telegraph's Ambrose Evans-Pritchard is sometimes helpful because of his skill (unusual in the mainstream media) in integrating business and economic trends with political ones. This article, ex ...
Ms. Yellen Swings the Axe
October 15, 2013
Can we call 'em or what? This is one of those narratives that grows stronger as we go. First the JOBS Act, then the cave-in on "tapering" and now comes the Big Bird herself, Her gray eminence, The Dove: See the article excerpt above. Janet Yellen ... The Big Bo ...
Economist Mag's Wise Words to the BRICs … Not
October 15, 2013
The Economist is truly "the gift that keeps on giving," for an alternative news group such as ours. We couldn't resist this article because it is so, well ... fatuous. The Economist wants the BRICs to slow their monetary output and practice austerity. India, Ru ...
Who Is Really Destabilizing the Dollar?
October 14, 2013
With this announcement, excerpted above, what's going on worldwide becomes just a little bit clearer. We take it for granted at this point that the Edward Snowden affair is not what it seems (we've mentioned our reservations previously) and a lot of the followi ...
Cynicism of Bankers
October 14, 2013
This Reuters article above reinforces the meme mentioned in today's lead article. The idea basically is that the US is being a terrible steward of the world's reserve currency and that its carelessness is putting the world's "recovery" at risk. Of course, if th ...
The Devious Manipulation of the Budget Debate
October 11, 2013
We can see from this article in the Washington Times, excerpted above, just how scripted the current budget debate really is. The federal debt is out of control; the argument over the government shutdown surely avoids the larger issues. Republicans have made a ...
EU Drops the Boot on Fracking?
October 11, 2013
The debate over energy – specifically oil – is surely a kind of directed history. If we understand the memes and themes, and how they interact, maybe we can come to a conclusion about the future of oil and its availability in the near future. First, some ba ...
Gridlock and the Change to Come
October 10, 2013
Every now and then top journo Ambrose Evans-Pritchard just loses the "plot" and this is one of those times. Evans-Pritchard is worried that factionalism between Democrats and Republicans will cause the End of Empire. Specifically, the US empire. But this is a m ...
Janet Yellen, Bravest Woman in the World?
October 10, 2013
Joan of Arc was apparently a very courageous woman; Janet Yellen may be seen as equally so. We're bringing up the "w" word only because this Bloomberg columnist did in the article excerpt above. To be fair, this article moves well beyond the issue of feminine v ...
Jimmy Carter’s Crocodile Tears
October 09, 2013
These are surely “crocodile tears” that Jimmy Carter weeps in his AP interview, excerpted above. Carter is surely not rambling. This is a serious statement. When the former president of the United States declares that the middle class of the “richest nati ...
Nissan Wants Britain in the EU
October 09, 2013
Here’s a wrinkle! As you can see from the above Telegraph excerpt, British banking elites have obviously been burning up the phone wires to Tokyo and probably other industrial capitals as well. The idea is to twist arms of major corporations until they explai ...
Thanks, Bloomberg, for More Nonsense About Gold
October 08, 2013
Bloomberg, in the above excerpt, provides us this latest disinformation regarding gold and central banking. The entire article, and it is a long one, is filled with one (deliberate?) misconception after another. But its main point is that gold fluctuates for my ...
Bob Geldof Predicts the Death of All Humans by 2030
October 08, 2013
Geldof’s latest rant is actually very good news. Just as a fever spikes before subsiding, so Geldof’s hysterics as reported above show clearly that the warmist tide is receding. Despite literally trillions of dollars thrown at this meme, the world is not co ...
Reuters to US Economy: ‘Our Heart Will Go On’
October 07, 2013
This past week saw an astonishing outpouring of opinion, much of it vitriolic in the US news media regarding the so-called US government shut down. Nowhere was the coverage more dramatic than over at Reuters, where seemingly the entire team of top columnists br ...
This Sh-t Is Bananas!
October 07, 2013
Ordinarily our second lead article would focus on a dominant social theme somewhere other than Reuters, as we have already analyzed a Reuters story. But, as mentioned, the crop of articles offered up in the Reuters editorial section this past week is so extraor ...
Telegraph: Africa Emerges
July 15, 2013
For several months now we've presented analyses of articles in such papers as The Economist about "Africa Rising." The meme is all over the Internet. This is how these promotions build, as those who run the money business select targets and make their promotion ...
Panics: Why Leave Out the Real Explanation?
July 15, 2013
This is a really terrible summary of monetary panics in the United States. You could read the entire article and not come away with an accurate sense of what actually went on. Take the description above. The national bank set up by Nicholas Biddle was in line w ...
Does Free Money Exist?
July 15, 2013
Are there any words to describe this evil? We've written dozens of articles on this over the past few years, observing the growth of this meme. Everything repeats in this century of directed history. The social credit crackpottery of the 1930s has returned, wra ...
Lancing the Statist Boil
July 15, 2013
One of the sadder developments of modernity is the resoluteness with which the public sector expands. There is almost nothing that an expanding bureaucracy envisions as beyond its reach. Bureaucratic rigor always insists on more and more control. Government run ...
Monetary Mavens Talk, Talk, Talk
July 12, 2013
So it begins. Having created Frankenstein's monetary monster, those attending to it now gather at the gurney peering down at the misshapen and deadly creature and ... palaver. There is not much else they can do. Their tools are limited or useless and the creatu ...
The Chaos Part
July 12, 2013
We see similarities between what we observed in today's lead article and the ongoing European crisis. Increasingly, it does not seem as if the powers-that-be are engaged in a rescue operation so much as enmeshed in a purposeful metaphor. The metaphor is not enu ...
Privatization … What Is It?
July 12, 2013
This article makes the point that privatizing the monopoly services of regulatory democracies is actually dangerous and unworkable. We've made the same point. The article doesn't go far enough, however, in terms of nomenclature. The article calls what is going ...
The Real Solution to Pirate Capitalism
July 12, 2013
There is a sort of gloating quality to this article that is not usually seen in BusinessWeek. But perhaps that is because hedge funds have come to represent free-market capitalism and are therefore fair game for criticism by the mainstream media, which tends to ...
Salvation of Glass-Steagall?
July 12, 2013
This article is posted over at TooBigHasFailed.org, a website that parallels official positions such as those taken by Elizabeth Warren (see above) and Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank President Thomas M. Hoenig, who has written a white paper entitled "Too Big ...
Drumbeat of Monetary Sophistry
July 11, 2013
We recently posted an article on the confusion between inflation and price inflation and this article posted at The Atlantic is further evidence of this purposeful confusion. Why is it purposeful? Because almost everything these days is an argument between thos ...
As World Growth Plunges, Economic Balancing Act Becomes More Difficult
July 11, 2013
Monetary authorities have been working overtime to reinflate Western economies without much success, as this International Monetary Fund report shows us. Money printing can only go so far and when it comes to the Eurozone and even to the US, the results of macr ...
Zimmerman Case and Chaos?
July 11, 2013
So now it becomes clearer. If one grants that social control is a process of Hegelian interactions – thesis, antithesis and then synthesis – then one also grants its implementation. Can we not see the growing chaos around the world, especially in Africa and ...
Reality of Egypt – Not What You Think?
July 11, 2013
We agree that Egypt is in for a long period of upheaval and bloodshed now, but we disagree with Reuters on the reason. As experienced meme watchers, we've observed the unfolding of the current Egyptian political standoff and we don't have any reason to believe ...
More Jargon: Central Banks Discover Macroprudential Regulation
July 10, 2013
If a central banker wanted to take a nap he would describe it as a "prone reversion to the mean." These fellows are always coming up with fancy ways to describe what we would humbly characterize as simplistic and even financially illiterate economic policies. O ...
Shriveling Green Shoots
July 10, 2013
What planet does Wonkblog live on? This article is the result of Federal Reserve compilation of debt data throughout the US and is a good example of the old adage "garbage in/garbage out." There are, of course, lots of reasons why consumer credit could be incre ...
Telegraph: British UKIP Convulsion Significant Threat to Tories
July 10, 2013
One can make a case that both UKIP and the US Tea Party movement are the "managed opposition," at this point any way. But at the same time, their emergence obviously indicates that there is a larger social movement that has taken shape. If one feels the need to ...
