Fundamentalist Islam Next for Libya?
February 25, 2011

Sink- or Swim-Time for the EU
February 24, 2011
We've written recently about Ambrose Evans-Pritchard's change of heart regarding Spain, an important change given that he is perhaps the most prominent Euroskeptic writing for a major news daily in Britain or Europe. A week ago, Evans-Pritchard decided that Spa ...
Privatize the US to Avoid Default?
February 24, 2011
It sounds so simple. The US is facing terrible debts but has many assets. Sell them off and win the best of both worlds. Additional funding and a renewed surge of market capitalism could save the day. That's the thesis of this article in Newsweek (excerpted abo ...
Where are the Baby-Boomer Nest Eggs?
February 23, 2011
Can one "invest" one's way to prosperity? Some people are very good at stock picking and others can use Austrian business cycle analysis to generally figure out what side of the market to be on during its great turnings (gold and silver would seem to be appropr ...
UN Switch From Fear to Greed to Promote New Green Tax
February 23, 2011

Can national civility calm political rancor? This question is asked in a Christian Science Monitor article, based on the news (see above) about the new National Civility Institute. The Institute is the brainchild of Fred DuVal, a friend of Congresswoman Gabriel ...
More and More, Elite Supports Islamic 'Enemy'
February 22, 2011
In a previous article, written many weeks ago, we asked if the West was actively setting up Islamic enemies in the Middle East. We were not sure at the time. As with many dominant social themes of the elite, it wasn't clear right away. But the wonderful thing a ...
See Bernanke's Disaster In Prices and Rates
February 21, 2011
Yesterday, in a regular Sunday-interview "after thought," we made the case that measuring the money supply was an exercise in futility. Today we analyze a recent Forbes article that explains why this is so. The power elite wants to confuse the issue in our opin ...
US Opens Afghan Talks, Mulls 80,000 More Afghan-Trained Forces
February 21, 2011
For us, the unraveling Afghan war effort is a huge story, even though it not being covered like one in the mainstream press. There are far more mainstream media articles about the latest single from Lady Gaga than there are about the war effort. But it is a ver ...
Cameron's Compassionate Conservatism Strikes Out
February 18, 2011
Is Tory Prime Minister David Cameron a kind of British "George Bush Lite?" To begin with, he has made a career out of abhorring the EU, but he is no more likely to orchestrate a departure from the EU than previous PMs (see article excerpt above). The history of ...
Can a Garden Be Copyrighted?
February 18, 2011
We thought we would return for another look at copyright since it is such a controversial subject and received a good deal of feedback yesterday. The article we want to comment on is certainly controversial as well. We can see from the above excerpt that the co ...
Bloomberg's Incredible Column
February 17, 2011
We just noticed Caroline Baum because of a current column, "Fat Lady Wanted as Guide to Fed Rate Setters" and her reference to Austrian free-market economics. It is an amazing column because it does succinctly what most, if not all, mainstream columns will not: ...
Let the RIAA Enforce Copyright With Its Own Funds
February 17, 2011

Hopeful Signs for EU and Euro?
February 16, 2011
The biggest euro-skeptic in the mainstream press has recanted (or decanted?). Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, author of the article from which the above excerpt is taken, has decided the euro is going to remain solvent after all. Perhaps, he says, too much Rioja has g ...
WikiLeaks Spawns More Backlash
February 16, 2011
WikiLeaks continues to be the gift that keeps on giving. We've analyzed WikiLeaks from the point of view of a power elite gambit and the pieces of the puzzle continue to fit together. Not only that, but the WikiLeaks sub dominant social theme was assembled rela ...
Will Color Revolutions Remove Central Banks?
February 15, 2011
In watching various color revolutions now and in the 1990s in Eastern Europe, it has occurred to us that they are specifically designed to keep money power in place. Hosni Mubarak has been removed from power along with some of his cronies, but the STRUCTURE of ...
Afghan War Draws in China and Russia
February 15, 2011

Elites Set Orwellian War Against China And Islam?
February 14, 2011

Do Mandela's Elders Violate Human Rights?
February 14, 2011
The Elders pack a mainstream-media punch. They've already received a good deal of mainstream media coverage. We queried "Elders, global leaders" and received nearly 500,000 cites on Google. TheElders.org website explains that the group is composed of eminent gl ...
IMF Calls for SDR-Denominated Bonds
February 11, 2011
Like a broken record, (does the cliché date us?) Dominique Strauss-Kahn campaigns around the world for a new currency. The latest wrinkle: SDR-denominated bonds. Bundle together a number of bankrupt national currencies and securitize them and you might indee ...
Middle East Revolutions Force West to Knees?
February 11, 2011

Forced Globalization of Trading Marts: Consolidation for Disaster
February 10, 2011
The article excerpt above sounds as if it could have been written anywhere in the West, but its focus is the Nigerian securities industry. The replication of the US model is startling. The regulatory body is called the SEC and the issues being discussed have to ...
Frauds of WikiLeaks?
February 10, 2011
WikiLeaks in our estimation becomes an evermore-obvious charade, and Julian Assange its conductor. We've been writing about it for months now, and each new leak raises our suspicions. None of the leaks with the exception of the first – a damning video of Amer ...
$20-Trillion War Costs Bankrupting US
February 09, 2011

CIA Launches PR Push
February 09, 2011

US Unemployment Approaches Reality?
February 08, 2011

Happy Birthday Ronald Reagan
February 08, 2011
Anyone who lived through the 1980s Reagan era in America probably remembers the "aw shucks" charm of the great man as he smiled his way through absolutely unequal presidential debates with a humble grace. The palpable sense of despair that gripped the US back t ...
West Builds Islam to Create a New War?
February 07, 2011
The US military industrial complex is in trouble and needs enemies. China likely won't do as necessary commercial relations with the West militate against its perception as a world-class enemy. Also China is Westernizing in a way that radical Islam will not. Of ...
Homeopathy Attacked by Big Pharma Supporters
February 07, 2011
Big Pharma has apparently found another target: homeopathy. After relentlessly destroying Britain's Dr. Andrew Wakefield for his temerity to suggest that there might be a link between vaccines and autism or other childhood injuries, homeopathy has now come unde ...
Central Banks Now Creating Hyperinflation?
February 04, 2011
The decision of Jean-Claude Trichet to ignore rising commodity prices by keeping interest rates low in the Eurozone, may mark the final decisive failure in the latest disastrous central banking cycle. If money velocity continues to rise, one might fairly accuse ...
History Is Being Produced, Not Made
February 04, 2011
The analysis of Haaretz Daily (see excerpt above) is the standard one in today's Western media. Various large societal and economic forces are colliding in the Middle East and elsewhere and thus history is "being made." Here at the Daily Bell, we have expressed ...
Economic Dreamtime Unravels
February 03, 2011
"Double-dip!" was the cry from some observers, "Don't panic!" the call from other quarters, including, to no one's surprise, the Government. The question is, does the GDP figure merely show that the coldest December in 100 years took a deep, but temporary toll, ...
New Revelations Show WikiLeaks Psyops
February 03, 2011
Months ago, long before others began arguing the case, the Daily Bell made the groundbreaking argument that WikiLeaks and Julian Assange in particular were a kind of psyops. Recent revelaitons have only help confirm our view - and others have come around to it ...
IMF Is Solution to Global Crises – Strauss-Kahn
February 02, 2011

Middle East Dreamtime
February 02, 2011
We want to make it very clear that in this article we are not making light of the many sacrifices the courageous people of the Middle East for freedom. Now that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has indicated he will not again run for office, the protests have g ...
Goldman Sachs Whistles Past EU Graveyard?
February 01, 2011
Jim O'Neill is the chairman of Goldman Sachs Asset Management and he believes the Eurozone is healthy enough (see article excerpt above) to carry on. For us, this may constitute a dominant social theme of sorts. The Anglo-American elite, which helped create the ...
Is Middle East Freedom the Bush Legacy?
February 01, 2011
Here at the Bell, we analyze the dominant social themes of the elite; Elliot Abrams who wrote the article excerpted above provides us with an excellent example of the use of what we refer to as the Hegelian dialectic. Who is Elliott Abrams? Among other things, ...
'Buy the Dow' While the US Wilts?
January 31, 2011
Is it really time to put more money into the stock market – especially blue-chip stocks? Sure the multi-nationals are doing a bit better, but despite all the talk of a global world, the dirty secret of America's dominance remains the dollar reserve system. In ...
Specter of Islam Spreads
January 31, 2011
In our view, these governments would tend toward a stronger Islam over time. In part, the West attempts this sort regime change to further create the illusion of resurgent Islam in order to buttress its own war on terror. The war on terror is a ruse that allows ...
Fall of Saudi Arabia to End Dollar Reserve System?
January 28, 2011
We don't believe any of this. What if all of this turmoil is in a sense being controlled or guided by Western intelligence? What if the ultimate goal is the destruction of Saudi Arabia and the dollar reserve system? Yes, what if the idea is to break the linkage ...
President Obama, American Citizen
January 28, 2011
One of the most persistent controversies in the US has to do with whether President Barack Obama was born in the United States. Those who maintain he is not have come to be known by the derisive term "birthers" and their argument is that if Obama was not born i ...
Davos: Leaders Float 'New Reality' Meme – Will It Work?
January 27, 2011
So the sentiment at Davos is mixed. The world converging on Davos is "weary" but warily optimistic (see article excerpt above). The "new reality" catchphrase is intended to emphasize the emergence of the BRIC countries (maybe with the exception of Russia) as ec ...
Too Tough to Cut?
January 27, 2011
The arguments are finally joined, and we shall see if American democracy is actually able to effectuate anything other than more spending and higher indebtedness. The arguments go farther than the debt ceiling of course and include military spending as well. US ...
US Panel Blames Banks for '08 Meltdown, but not Central Banks
January 26, 2011

Tunisia Promotion Now Failing?
January 26, 2011
A feedbacker was kind enough to send us a link to an absolutely extraordinary article by Thierry Meyssan, founder of the Voltaire Network. Astonishingly, the article solidifies most of our suspicions regarding Tunisia's crazy Jasmine revolution. ...
China's Empty Cities Are Result of UN Agenda 21?
January 25, 2011
We've covered the insanity of Chinese economic growth in numerous articles stretching back nearly two years now, but this latest news is the most startling yet. If the Telegraph is to believed (we have no reason not to), the Chinese have now dropped any pretens ...
As Predicted, Tunisian Islamists Emerge
January 25, 2011
In a recent article (Western Elites Secretly Still Building Islam) we speculated that the Anglo-America power elite was supporting Islam because the West's growing authoritarianism needed an outside enemy to ensure its global expansion. We received some skeptic ...
'Super Stagflation' End Game?
January 24, 2011
Another facile media explanation. (See excerpt above.) The Telegraph gets it half right. Stagflation is not caused by "higher oil prices" but by monetary policy. The West is about to embark on an episode of what we wil call - for lack of a better term - "Super ...
