Directed History of Syrian War?
June 08, 2012
It is surprising to see what we call directed history at work. From Tunisia to Egypt and then Libya and now Syria, Western powers are manufacturing pretexts for wars and toppling governments. Syria is the next to go but probably not the last. They are working t ...
The Madness of Market Euphoria
June 07, 2012
Or are they? Europe is failing, China just cut interest rates and US markets moved up hard on a hope and a prayer. The hopeful prayer was that Ben Bernanke would cut interest rates – or that he intends to. Why this would cause the Dow to climb some 300 points ...
The JOBS Act at FreedomFest: Jump-Starting Wealth?
June 07, 2012
What is a public market? It's whatever (mostly US) regulators say that it is. But now, for the first time in about 75 years, public markets are undergoing an evolution. The evolution, it would seem, is spelled "JOBS Act." Recently, Daily Bell Chief Editor Antho ...
Wisdom of Regulators? … Systemic Risk Group Formed to Supervise Wall Street
June 06, 2012
So a new group will do what Wall Street won't – bring sanity to finance! Or will it ... Imagine, however, that a group was formed to provide oversight to the risks undertaken by, say, the auto industry – or ... cruise lines. Wouldn't this be seen as overrea ...
The False Boom of the Olympics
June 06, 2012
The Olympics leave a trail of bankruptcy and destruction wherever they go. From Greece to China to Spain and beyond, the mothballed infrastructure, ruinous costs and misdirected man-hours resonate ruinously for decades. It is surely an elite dominant social the ...
G7 Is Concerned About Euro Collapse … Sure They Are!
June 05, 2012
The Earth is falling and the Eurozone is wobbling. Brussels is worried, Germany is intransigent and Washington is "concerned." The proximate cause of these worried brows is a dysfunctional continent-wide union that had no reason to exist, no popular mandate to ...
Merkel Meets the World – Eye-to-Eye – and the World Demands a Political Union
June 05, 2012
Like some sort of bad joke or living nightmare the European Union rolls along. It really does resemble a Zombie apocalypse, though unfortunately it is not a Hollywood production but an ever-expanding political engorgement. One would think that having bankrupted ...
New Book: Solar Cells 23,000 Times Worse for Environment Than Carbon Dioxide
June 05, 2012
Hoo boy! Whom can you trust anymore? For decades, we've been hearing about the promise of solar power and now it turns out that solar cells may be terrible for the environment. Bottom line according to this new book Green Illusions: Hexafluoroethane has a globa ...
Oh, EU … Grow the Money Supply! (And Enshrine the Current Distortion Forever)
June 05, 2012
We're getting a bit tired of perhaps the greatest mainstream journo, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard. He was great in predicting the possible death of the European Union or at least the euro. But he's undergone a considerable evolution in the past few months. It starte ...
Kill These Companies … but Leave the Banks Alone
June 05, 2012
Here we go. Main Street needs a culling but not Wall Street. Or should we be referring to London's City, that infamous patch of ground in London that like Washington DC and the Vatican is its own tiny patch of rules and laws that have nothing to do with its sur ...
Merkel and Her Crew: Only More Union Will Do
June 04, 2012
Reuters does us the service of providing a view of the bigger picture when it comes to the European Union: The choice is between more of the same – and a LOT more of the same. You would think that a political process that has bankrupted half of Europe, inflam ...
Here Come the Car Robots …
June 04, 2012
So now one big reason for Google mapping becomes clear: to create an electronic grid that would allow for the use of robotic drivers. Why are we not surprised? And what's wrong with robot drivers, anyway? Seems to be an advance that is intended to provide more ...
Springsteen Unsprung …
June 01, 2012
Bruce Springsteen is probably one of the most successful musicians in the world. He is also one of the most ambitious. But his ambition, as displayed in this Reuters article above, provokes a bottom-line question: Is he dumb or playing dumb? We Googled "Springs ...
New Study: Numerical and Science Literacy Cause Climate Change Skepticism
June 01, 2012
So now we learn from the Register, an IT publication, that numeracy raises skepticism about global warming. This apparently came as a shock to those who organized the study. As global warming is a kind of hoax, this should NOT have been surprising. But charming ...
12-Year Old 'Viral Video' Money-Reformer Supports Hyperinflation?
May 31, 2012
The intrepid and charming Ellen Brown has scored again with the one-year-old Public Banking Institute that filmed 12-year-old Victoria Grant speaking about the benefits of public banking. The video of the beguiling young woman has gone "viral" with well over a ...
Syria Civil War Warned by Ms. Hillary Clinton
May 31, 2012
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has made the point (see above) that the conflict in Syria could lead to civil war. But, in fact, the "conflict" is likely American-made and has all the hallmarks of a previous venture in Libya that saw the end of Muammar Ga ...
Europe's Banks Run Out of Money … Again
May 30, 2012
The Telegraph's Ambrose Evans-Pritchard along with others is sounding the alarm today over a European bank balance-sheet collapse (see above). "Today's spike in Italian yields shows that they are running out of LTRO money to keep the game," he writes. "Spanish ...
Merk Sees Easing Around the World, to Benefit of Currencies and Commodities
May 30, 2012
For many people this is a terrible time but for those with the wherewithal to invest their funds or the funds of others, the current environment offers many opportunities. Volatility is the trader's friend. And, man, things are volatile out there. We just recei ...
Rockefellers and Rothschilds Unite
May 30, 2012
This is not a joke, though if it were April 1 or if it had appeared somewhere other than the Financial Times we might have been most skeptical. It is actually a most disturbing announcement. It seems to indicate to us that what we call dominant social them ...
Fascism of Vietnam's 'Modern' Finance Is Just Like the West's …
May 29, 2012
We at the Daily Bell are old enough to remember the rigid Marxism espoused by Vietnam and the fear espoused by America's top politicos that it would eventually be visited on the West. If we don't stop them there, politicians intoned, we'll have to stop them her ...
Italian 'Anarchists' Target Olympics – Do We Believe It?
May 29, 2012
Who believes in the 21st century that an independent group of shadowy "anarchists" has "targeted" the Olympics? Hollywood, get us rewind! The elites keep recycling the same strategies over and over again, as if they haven't been amply exposed. This latest gambi ...
Economist Mag: Cook the European Union Slowly Via This Phony Crisis
May 28, 2012
Europe is discovering federalism. As we've long argued on these pages now, the "crisis" of Europe stands revealed increasingly as a phony one, a ginned-up ongoing emergency that is designed to provoke maximum centralization. The crisis began as one that saw Sou ...
Child Porn Seen on Kim Dotcom's Servers
May 28, 2012
Is the power elite prosecuting Kim Dotcom getting increasingly desperate? Now the child pornography smear is being rolled out. It was predictable enough. The powers-that-be are struggling with what we call the Internet Reformation. And just as they did after th ...
Bilderberg Reporting Hits Matt Drudge, Reaches Millions
May 28, 2012
The Drudge Report, which can reach tens of millions of viewers in a single day, has posted an article from RT about the mysterious and secretive Bilderberger group (see above). Ten years ago, knowledge of the Bilderbergers was restricted to a tiny group of "con ...
Can Regulators Do the Job of Markets?
May 25, 2012
The Wall Street Journal has an interesting post today on the struggle of regulators to obtain tools that will allow them to analyze the risks that the market faces. Is there really a tool or tools (and resources) that will allow regulators to anticipate market ...
100 Million Americans Out of Work – This is a Recovery?
May 25, 2012
There are 300 million people in America including 230 million-plus adults, according to US Census figures. This article, above, informs us that only 130 million Americans have jobs as traditionally defined in the 20th and 21st century. The statistics actually c ...
Supreme Court Is OK with US$ 675,000 Copyright Fine for 30 Songs
May 25, 2012
So now Joel Tenenbaum owes US$ 675,000 for downloading 30 songs. One can argue that those who believe they are wronged by Tenenbaum ought to pursue him and others. But let them do it with their own resources. This is a fundamental prerogative of private justice ...
Super Rompuy to the Rescue?
May 24, 2012
The EU is like a vast, slow motion car wreck. It's hard to keep your eyes off it. While the outcome is by no means certain, we continually note the yelps for one solution ... to cement the union by making it "closer." This is a code word for buttressing the cur ...
The Big Issue Facing the US Is Bain Capital
May 24, 2012
There are many problems the US is facing. It likely is not a stable country anymore. It is facing in aggregate a debt of some US$ 200 trillion. This is unpayable. Still, the US staggers on, becoming less free every day. There are probably 100 separate federal i ...
Now Greece Goes? Bad Decade for Elite Memes
May 23, 2012
The top elites that apparently want to run the world are not having a very good year, or even a very good decade. What we call the Internet Reformation has taken its toll ... in a big way. We try to keep track of this unacknowledged war because it is the CRUX I ...
National Geographic: We Need More Carbon Capture!
May 23, 2012
Imagine sucking an invisible gas from the sky and storing it underground at great expense. Sounds insane? Welcome to "carbon capture." With a straight face (in aggregate) National Geographic's editors have just come out with an article alternately expressing su ...
Facebook Fiasco
May 22, 2012
Facebook's stock price is down something like 20 percent from the IPO price and the damage control is being done two ways. First, the downward spiral is being treated as business-as-usual. Second, it's being treated as part of a larger upward ascension. We don' ...
The Financial Transactions Tax Rolls On
May 22, 2012
Another disastrous tax may be on the way, delivered to long-suffering Europeans by their Brussels representatives. Tomorrow, apparently, the European Parliament shall vote on a Financial Transaction Tax (FTA). Oh, no! We've written about this horrible tax befor ...
Printer Plans for Greek Drachma
May 22, 2012
Here's an interesting article, one telling us that one of the world's largest private printers of currency is ready to print Greek drachmas. Anyone who follows the financial news is well aware that Greeks may soon be forced to re-adopt the drachma and give up t ...
Internet Reformation Is EU Reality?
May 21, 2012
Someone in the mainstream press has finally written the evident and obvious truth about the Eurozone: Angela Merkel does not have it in her power simply to declare a new pan-European empire. For this clear – clarion-like – truth, we thank Janet Daley. As pa ...
Unfolding Authoritarianism and the Afghan Setback
May 21, 2012
For years now, we've tracked the expanding authoritarianism of the West – and in the process been subject to various labels. But lately, we have to think that our worldview doesn't look so very extreme. (Cold comfort, that.) Just in the US (never mind Europe) ...
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 ...
