Facebook IPO Is Bubble Redux?
May 18, 2012
Frankly, we've been surprised by the lack of articles doubting Facebook's US$ 100 billion valuation. This article in the Washington Times, written yesterday, is about the closest we could come, recently, in the mainstream media. We've been frank about our perce ...
The Greek Default Was a Scam All Along?
May 18, 2012
Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, with some of the best sources in the world, has buried his lead once again. Just look at the excerpt from his latest article, above. The headline is that there will be a global rally. We figure this is a pretty good speculation. He was ...
A Leftist Shall Save Them … Not
May 17, 2012
Karl Marx had a simple answer for life's problems: Give it to the government, and once the government and once the government "owned all" it would whither away and the "people" would come into power via perfection of (his) punditry. What's most funny about this ...
US To Tax Everyone, Everywhere, All the Time?
May 17, 2012
You would think with all the economic chaos swirling about that those who make the laws and levy taxes would be somewhat apologetic. Not Senator Chuck Schumer, though. He wants to make it illegal for a US citizen to take advantage of the tax laws of other count ...
Another Victory for World Justice
May 17, 2012
In a long-ago article, "World Justice Meme Emerges," we reported on Charles Taylor and the devious way he had ended up on trial. This power elite, apparently, that wants to run the world has seemingly been struggling to erect a world court. As usual, the strate ...
Merkel Admits the Entire EU Is Nothing But a Large Promotion
May 16, 2012
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has just made an astounding statement. In a press conference with new president Francoise Hollande, she said, "People who have a common currency will never fight a war against each other." For a person at the heights of power to ...
Time Magazine: Fed is Responsible for the JPMorgan Blow Up …
May 16, 2012
Another limited hangout from a mainstream publication. In this case, Time magazine. This is how the game works. One never calls for the end of central banking – only for central bankers to DO BETTER. And here we go again. Time magazine (business) is out with ...
Oh, the Horror! Greek Gov Collapses
May 15, 2012
So the Greek government has collapsed ... again. Reuters (above) makes it sound like a national tragedy. But maybe we are missing something here. Didn't the Greek government cause the current problems? Excuse us if we're wrong but isn't the problem well known? ...
Is Ron Paul Dead Yet, Dorothy? Drop a House on Him …
May 15, 2012
Has libertarian Congressman Ron Paul really dropped out of the GOP race? Is it really the end? Seems hard to think so. But the media will have its day. There's no way not to say, "I won't compete," and thus for a goodly time the bought-and-paid for mainstream m ...
Drop the Cash From Helicopters!
May 14, 2012
Ambrose Evans-Pritchard has gotten to the heart of the matter in a recent article on monetary contraction (see above). He rightly points out that less money is circulating but then comes quickly to a Keynesian conclusion that more money will provide the antidot ...
Thank Goodness for Regulation
May 14, 2012
Paul Krugman is out with another weary defense of massive financial regulation. The US Leviathan is in the process of strip-searching seniors and infants at airports for reasons it cannot aggregately define, but Krugman is still a true believer. Actually, of co ...
JPMorgan Has Lost US$ 2 Billion, Now It's Time for the Volcker Rule
May 14, 2012
Even the 'Net alternative media seems attracted by this "rule" that the former Federal Reserve Chairman is flogging. But we can't help recall that virtually all his life Volcker has been a right-hand man to the Rockefeller dynasty. There's some irony here, yes? ...
S&P's 'Wall of Debt' Warning is Phony as They Come
May 11, 2012
As the power elite that wants to run the world grows more crazed and desperate, their bought-and-paid-for financial facilities and media mouthpieces become crazier, too. That's because the credit system itself is an artificial system, built out of central banki ...
Now Cometh the Eurozone 'Recession' …
May 11, 2012
If the Eurozone is not to be condensed and held, then by God, let loose the hounds of Hell. That would seem to be the next step in the European Union saga. There was, of course, never any real need for such a union. From what we can tell both World Wars One and ...
The Euro Is Finished? And What Comes Next? …
May 11, 2012
The power elite that we cover as part of our brief to understand the Way the World Really Works focuses apparently on the goal of world government. It follows many paths to get there. One path it follows is of ever-increasing centralization. The power elite has ...
Desperate Argentina Now Seen Begging for Oil Investment
May 10, 2012
Are Argentina's top officials having second thoughts about their expropriation of Spain's Argentine oil-producer? It would seem that way from the above news report via Merco Press. If the move was as wildly destructive as people think it may have been, then thi ...
Italian Voters Reject Austerity, Too
May 10, 2012
The powers-that-be run the world's mainstream media and they are now spending a great deal of time reporting on the end of austerity in the EU. Greece, Italy, Spain and even France have now rejected the concept that higher taxes, government trimming and a lower ...
US Car Sales Are Up – Is the Recession Really Over?
May 10, 2012
So sales of American cars are going up. That's great. But we still end up feeling like there's a great big promotion going on. It's what we call a dominant social theme aimed, perhaps, at reelecting Barack Obama who seems to be the chose candidate of Western po ...
Biggest Question: Will Germany Adjust or Will Euro Die?
May 09, 2012
Our favorite mainstream economic reporter, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, is out with a good analysis of the current, brewing dissolution of the euro and the EU (see above). It touches on a point that we want to make much more forcefully: What happens to the euro and ...
Catch These Corporate Bribers and Put Them in Jail
May 09, 2012
There is a manufactured "surface" conversation in this world and then there is reality. The reality is that a secretive power elite has taken over the West, seeks to rule the world and uses mercantilism to achieve its objectives. Mercantilism is the usage of go ...
Directed History of Coming Depression Grinds On
May 09, 2012
We've been banging on about a worldwide slump for years now, ever since it occurred to us that once Europe and the US "went out" in 2008, from an economic standpoint, the BRICs were all that was left. And the BRICs are more like the proverbial straw hut these d ...
Ron Paul: Energizer Bunny of US Politics for Good Reason
May 08, 2012
Ron Paul, libertarian-conservative candidate for US president just won't quit. In fact, he keeps grabbing delegates and is threatening to deprive putative GOP nominee Mitt Romney of a first-round nomination. Now he is holding a hearing today on the US Federal R ...
Face of US$ 100 Billion … Facebook Specialty Is Pilfering Client Data, While Instagram Is a Craft Package?
May 08, 2012
We've been clear about our disbelief regarding Facebook and its US$ 90 billion valuation, which is apparently about to go up to US$ 100 billion or so based on the company's acquisition of Instagram, a photo-fiddling utility. You can see an article here: "Facebo ...
UN Claims Sub-Saharan Africa Faces Dramatic Crisis as New Nation State Is Formed
May 08, 2012
The power elite is supporting a new nation in sub-Saharan Africa. Actually, the French and European Union are said to be against the new country that will basically take the place of parts of Mali and surrounding countries – aimed at Libya and the Arab world ...
Is RBC the New Business Cycle?
May 07, 2012
Megan McArdle is out with an interesting rumination about the business cycle. It's not merely a theoretical examination, however. Who is she? From The Atlantic: "Megan McArdle is a senior editor for The Atlantic who writes about business and economics. She has ...
EU Bust as Internet Reformation Rolls On …
May 07, 2012
Here at the Daily Bell one of the things we are (modestly) known for is our perspective that the Internet and the information it distributes would have a huge impact on Western government and the one-world global elite conspiracy, which thrived under the cover ...
Selective Doubt at the Milken Money Conference
May 04, 2012
Michael Milken was a Wall Street legend in the 1980s when he made junk bonds into a form of popular financing. He was the black knight on a white horse, teaching Wall Street and Main Street moguls that the market itself would revalue their portfolios efficientl ...
Bank of England Draws Lessons From the Idiocy of the 2000s
May 04, 2012
So the wheel keeps on turning, even after it has delinked from the axle. Monopoly-fiat central banking is not so arcane as it used to be: It's price fixing and it doesn't work. Mervyn King can "draw all the lessons" he wants from the unrolling crisis but it rea ...
The Volcker Rule Advances
May 04, 2012
Here it comes. Another elite dominant social theme designed to support the idea that wise regulation can make a big and positive difference in the world. This is surely a promotion – as regulation can make things worse but rarely better. Regulation is a price ...
The Obama Recovery Persists At Least Until After the Election … and Then Watch Out!
May 02, 2012
Just in time for Barack Obama's re-election, as we've pointed out previously, the entire American economy is taking a tremendous uptick. We know this is so because we read about it in the mainstream media. It actually appears to us to be part of a larger elite ...
Now Bolivia Seizes Oil – Open Season on Western Assets or Something Even More?
May 02, 2012
Historical events tend to move in cycles. This is because the world seems to be in the grip of a kind of directed global convulsion leading to greater world government. We seem to be going through a radical "ism" phase again where the powers-that-be are trying ...
Almost Psychic … Andreessen Most Clairvoyant Person Since Pythia, or Not?
May 02, 2012
Marc Lowell Andreessen has always been at the forefront of the "technology revolution" and has made a lot of money by doing so. Now he is really excited about small phone-'Net technology and of course social networking. Has Andreessen lost his edge? Or is he as ...
The Velocity of Money Is Coming, Along With Big Price Inflation?
May 01, 2012
Axel Merk of Merk Funds is out with another good analysis of the tremendous monetary inflation now inherent in the Western dollar reserve system and its eventual impact. We have always argued ... wait. Sooner or later there will be tremendous price inflation. D ...
Britain Slows in Slump
May 01, 2012
Only 100 years ago there were very few central banks in the world. Today there are perhaps 150 of them, many reporting to the main Bank for International Settlements in Switzerland. Why is this so? What has made monopoly-fiat central banking such a successful c ...
The Caro Come Down …
May 01, 2012
Robert Allan Caro once wrote a brilliant book about Robert Moses, who is a seminal planning figure in modern America life. The book Caro wrote about Moses is justifiably celebrated. In it – and Caro writes exhaustively long books – Caro shows clearly how an ...
Building the Private Warfare State
May 01, 2012
What we call the Internet Reformation has given us a good perspective on how the West's military-intel-industrial complex foments conflicts and then monetizes them. We've watched the efflorescence of the "long war" in Africa and the Middle East – supposedly s ...
Austerity Staggers, Germany Blows Up?
April 30, 2012
Here's another winning analysis from UK Telegraph columnist Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, in our view. As spectacularly wrong as he was about Spain avoiding a collapse (and we called him on it then, months ago) so we think he's correct about the demise of austerity ...
India Falters? Global Depression On Tap?
April 30, 2012
There is a big argument in the Western world, and especially in the US and Britain over the issue of public versus private monopoly-fiat (central banking) money. In this article excerpted above we can see that one of the top countries where the central bank is ...
Canada Introduces Plastic Cash – Say, How About Trying a Little Gold and Silver?
April 30, 2012
Used to be that money was at least in part gold and silver, circulating as gold and silver or as bank notes that represented gold and silver. At the height of the free-banking monetary experiment in the US, both before and after the Civil War, money circulated ...
Let Mitt Romney Be Romney and the US Shall Be a Better Place
April 30, 2012
An argument could be made that US President Barack Obama is typical of the kinds of rulers that the modern power elite is trying to install around the world. Bloodless, calculating, shrewd and cautious (in an unctuous and ruthless way), Obama is the kind of lea ...
Spain's Collapse Is No Little Thing
April 27, 2012
Is Spain beginning to collapse and, perhaps, the EU with it? For well over a thousand years, Spain has been at the epicenter of Europe and its fate has provided a bellwether for Europe's larger situation. And whither Europe goes, so goes the West. The S&P downg ...
Chile Worries About Potential Argentine Military Provocations
April 27, 2012
The southern half of South America is bracing for an Argentine devaluation. People are readying for the worst. Last time it happened was more than ten years ago, around the turn of the century. It wasn't pretty then and it won't be pretty now. It could cause si ...
Taxpayers, Don't Let Them Fail! Spanish Banking on Brink …
April 26, 2012
Once again the cry goes up to preserve the banking sector. Is this necessary? In a free-market economy such failing institutions would shut down of their own accord. But that's not the way it works in the modern world. This is too bad because propping up such e ...
Transformational President Romney – Not!
April 26, 2012
Romney is not going to be a transformational president. Let's make that clear right away. But this squib of an article that has received wide play on the Internet makes that case anyway. One would have to be almost willfully ignorant to make such a statement, ...
VIDEO: A Rainbow for Obama
April 26, 2012
So ... this photo is all the over 'Net – the rainbow at the wingtip of Air Force One. We've had trouble all along with this Obama-as-messiah thing, and believe it to be a kind of meme. That is a dominant social theme of the elite, a theme having to do with th ...
Is the Euro Slowly Dying?
April 25, 2012
Quietly, the euro may be dying. Or at least the top men in various countries may be taking steps to create room for its removal. We can see from the above excerpt that various nations' monies are now being invested locally rather than abroad. This is a signific ...
Is the Tea Party Waning?
April 25, 2012
This article from the Economist – a full-fledged mainstream mouthpiece – predicts, hopefully, the demise of the Tea Party movement in the US. But those who run the Economist and hope for world government should be careful of what they wish for. The Tea Part ...
The Trap Is Sprung … Obama as East-West Savior?
April 24, 2012
What we have here is what we've long anticipated, the end of one war and the beginning of a resurgent Barack Obama who may act as a peacemaker between East and West. This analysis is speculative in the extreme and even "conspiratorial." But it is borne of watch ...
Crime Is Up Worldwide, UN Intends to Provide a Solution
April 24, 2012
This is one of the oldest and hoariest of elite memes. It is the idea that only government can protect individuals from crime. It is an elite meme because elites have always warred against the middle class – and thus has throughout history created environment ...
EU Unraveling – Now It's Holland's Turn
April 23, 2012
Like some kind of rolling contagion, the insolvency affecting the Southern PIGS is spreading northward toward the supposedly solvent part of the EU. Now it's Holland's turn. We learn that austerity hasn't been a soft sell in Holland any more than it has been in ...
