IPCC Global Warming Leak Proverbial Third Shoe Dropping
November 04, 2013
Was this IPCC report leaked on purpose? A strange coincidence anyway. Follow the logic ... Saturday's editorial at The Daily Bell pointed out that James Cameron was leading the charge to cover global warming through the eyes of world-famous Hollywood stars. Mea ...
What Was Not Said About Iraq
November 04, 2013
October was Iraq's deadliest month since April, 2008. In those five and a half years, not only has there been no improvement in Iraq's security situation, but things have gotten much worse. More than 1,000 people were killed in Iraq last month, the vast majorit ...
Gerald Celente on Multinationalism, Breaking the Chains and Individual Renaissance
November 03, 2013
It's not only the US; it's the entire world. In the next Trends Journal in the "Epiphany" piece that I'm doing I've come up with the epiphany that this is not globalization; it's multinationalization. What we're looking at is a corporate takeover of such great ...

Bill Gross's High Stakes Hold-Up
November 01, 2013
This is surely a blossoming dominant social theme. The bigger you are in the 21st century, the more you owe society. But like all such memes, you need to turn it upside down to fully comprehend its awfulness. This is nothing but a high-stakes hold up on Gross's ...
UBS Finally Made Some Money for Someone
November 01, 2013
We used the word "country" above to exaggerate a logical flaw: There is no "country." There is a Swiss culture but from what we can tell, the people partaking of the culture are not in any way happy with UBS regardless of how the "bailout" turned out. Why shoul ...
Is Paul Krugman a Voodoo Economist?
November 01, 2013
Readers ask me if Paul Krugman could be correct that deficits don't matter and that neither does printing endless reams of money with which to purchase the Treasury's debt instruments that finance the deficits. If people at home and abroad who hold dollars and ...

Conspiracy Theories? BBC Loses Its PC Mind
October 31, 2013
Who on Earth commissioned this article from the BBC? From the point of view of dominant social themes and the dialectic it is an admirable piece of work but from every other standpoint it is a miserable failure. A few decades ago, we wouldn't be commenting on i ...
The Great Lie of Modern Unions
October 31, 2013
Few aspects of America's past are as thoroughly misunderstood as the history of the labor movements that thrived in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The modern union that arose and usurped their place was the antithesis of what it claimed to be. It did n ...
Introducing Islamic Financial Futurist David Cameron!

IMF Happy Talk Cannot Obscure Japan's Reality
October 30, 2013

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

A Welcome US/Saudi 'Reset'
October 28, 2013

Dr. Antal Fekete on Real Bills, Quantity of Money Theory and the New Austrian Economic Manifesto
October 27, 2013
Antal Fekete: The liquidity trap is claptrap invented by Keynes. If the Fed is trying to fend off deflation, then it is using counter-productive means to achieve its ends. Paradoxically, ZIRP (zero interest rate policy) has the effect of destroying capital. It ...

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 ...
As Ye Sow, So Shall Ye Reap
October 25, 2013

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

Know Your Class Enemy, Know Your Class Ally
October 24, 2013
The much vaunted class conflict between rich and poor is political fraud on stilts. It comes from a bastardization of class analysis that is used to divide people who might otherwise unite and turn against the true threat: the state. In reality, entrepreneurs a ...
Stagflation of the 2000s

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 ...
Communitarianism and Reproductive Rights
October 23, 2013

Debunking the Recovery Meme – A Lousy Job but Someone's Got to Do It
October 21, 2013

Healthcare: The Technocracy Strikes Out
October 21, 2013

The Tea Party's Unspoken Political, Economic and Financial Ramifications
October 19, 2013
Reuters is carrying an editorial today on how the DC "government has failed us – again." Knowing Reuters's record on articles like this, you might wonder why I stopped to read it. It was the title of the article, "The Sanity Caucus," that caught my eye. Surpr ...
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 ...

Metaethical Foibles at Work
October 17, 2013
There is much speculation about what is going on in the public policy debates that are afoot these days. But no one to my knowledge has noted that a particular philosophical position may be very influential in all the discussion. This is that idea that moral/po ...
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

Whatever Became of Western Civilization?
October 16, 2013

Ms. Yellen Swings the Axe
October 15, 2013

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 ...
Not Raising the Debt Limit Equals a Balanced Budget
October 15, 2013
The mainstream media and the Washington, D.C.-obsessed news pundits are in hysterics that the United States government is potentially facing default if the Congress does not increase the legal debt limit, so the U.S. Treasury can continue to borrow more and mor ...
