People Are ‘Dying In Hospital Corridors’ Under Britain’s Socialized Healthcare System
There’s new outrage overseas, as people are literally dying in the corridors of hospitals because of Britain’s overrun socialized medicine scam. In case Venezuela didn’t do enough to prove that socialism is a deadly joke on humanity, Britain’s healthcare system should be the last nail in its coffin. The patients are dying in hospital corridors as safety is jeopardized by intolerable conditions say doctors in Britain, according to the BBC last week.  More details continue to emerge surrounding th

Speculating Our Way to Prosperity
We have been discussing the consumption of capital. Last week, for example, we concluded with: “We see people eating more of the seed corn.” Morally, socialism is the enslavement of man to man. If you create something, they want not just to take it from you, but to render you unable to create anything else. They declare that the ideal is “from each according to his ability.” This is about the most perfect expression of envy ever put into words. By envy, we mean the hatred of the good for being t

Quantum Change in Gold and Silver Demand, 2 Jan 2018
We hope everyone had a happy New Year. There is a long informercial airing on American TV. It shows an endless parade of senior citizens, struggling to pay their bills, unable to buy that motorized stairway lift, play golf, or eat out at restaurants. The solution? Get a reverse mortgage! The number to call is 1-800-GET-CASH. That number again is one eight hundred get your free cash now! To summarize the point of the commercial—if not the terms of the fine print—the senior gets a monthly check, a

WARNING: There Is Going to be an Attempted Communist Revolution on Nov. 4
This article was originally published by Daisy Luther at The Organic Prepper There could be more trouble than we ever imagined headed our way on November 4th when a bunch of folks who aren’t happy about Trump and Pence attempt to overthrow the government in a Communist revolution. Groups like Antifa, Resist Fascism, and the Revolutionary Communist Party have been meeting for months to openly plan sedition and organize what they promise will be massive protests all over the country. Don’t be sur

Bitcoin vs Dollars: Which One is a Fraud Which One is a Ponzi Scheme
Jamie Dimon, JP Morgan CEO, made quite a headline splash last week when he proclaimed “Bitcoin ‘is a Fraud“. Is Bitcoin a fraud? Or are dollars, euros, yen, and yuan a collective set of frauds? Which, if any are Ponzi schemes? Modern Finance is the Fraud In an article that I wish I had written myself, Viktor Shvets, head of Macquarie’s AsiaPac equity strategy, accurately explains “Modern Finance”, Not Bitcoin, Is The Real Fraud. Paragraphs rearranged for clarity. “Bitcoin is a sort of tulip… i

Bad Ideas About Money, Bitcoin, and Gold Report
Most false or irrational ideas about money are not new. For example, take the idea that government can just fix the price of one monetary asset against another. Some people think that we can have a gold standard by such a decree today. This idea goes back at least as far as the Coinage Act of 1792, when the government fixed 371.25 grains of silver to the same value as 24.75 grains of gold, or a ratio of 15 to 1. This caused problems because the market valued silver a bit lower than that. So pe

  The Folly of Democratic Socialism 
How apropos that on the weekend of the annual convention of Democratic Socialists of America taking place in Chicago the socialist government of Venezuela is demonstrating yet again the inherent incompatibility of socialism and democracy.  It was not just a coincidence, in other words, that twentieth-century socialism was defined by tyranny, dictatorship, and oppression – and not democracy. Nobel laureate F.A. Hayek explained how so

  Holy Hell 
The abiding enigma of this tormented era remains: why has the thinking class of America abandoned thinking? The answer is: it’s the reaction to their own failure. Failure to do what? To produce the utopia that Gnostic liberalism promised — a perfect world based on altering human nature. The result is an essentially religious hysteria, like the witch frenzies of Medieval Europe that were sometimes provoked by ergot poisoning — a fungus with toxic psychotropic properties that grew on the harvested

The Real Mad Max Emerges In Venezuela: “Exactly The Dystopia One Can Expect From Redistribution And Central Planning”
This report was originally published by Tyler Durden at While Silicon Valley seems obsessed by ‘blood boys’, its another part of the world that appears to have gone full Mad Max. As the following clip shows a gang of bikers chase down and attack a truck (with molotov cocktails) to steal its sugar payload… Not quite the “Guzzoline” or “Bullets” that Fury Road offers, but when all you have to eat is flamingoes or black stallions, sugar may be a good substitute worth risking your lif

  Things To Come 
As our politicos creep deeper into a legalistic wilderness hunting for phantoms of Russian collusion, nobody pays attention to the most dangerous force in American life: the unraveling financialization of the economy. Financialization is what happens when the people-in-charge “create” colossal sums of “money” out of nothing — by issuing loans, a.k.a. debt — and then cream off stupendous profits from the asset bubbles, interest rate arbitrages, and other opportunities for swindling that the artif

Warning: The Last Two Times Stock Did This Were 2000 and 2007
The number of S&P 500 companies reporting negative earnings is rising rapidly. Why does this matter? It matters because this usually signals right before a stock market peak. Below is a chart illustrating the percentage of S&P 500 companies reporting negative earnings running back to 1999. As you can see, we are now at levels that have usually occurred just before stock market peaks (the last two times we were at these levels were 2007 and 2000, respectively). Both of those times (like today),

Self-Driving Vehicles and the Failure to Understand Capitalism
Despite accelerating progress towards fully autonomous cars and trucks, many people still do not accept the obvious fact it’s going to happen soon. For example, in response to Death Spiral for Car Ownership? End of Fuel-Powered Cars by 2024? one reader suggested it will not happen because of capitalism. Failure to Understand Capitalism People who believe in this utopia do not understand capitalism. We own cars because consumers chose what they wanted and backed that up with their hard earned ca

“Therefore I must say that, as I hope for mercy, I can have no other notion of all the other governments that I see or know, than that they are a conspiracy of the rich, who, on pretense of managing the public, only pursue their private ends, and devise all the ways and arts they can find out; first, that they may, without danger, preserve all that they have so ill acquired, and then that they may engage the poor to toil and labor for them at as low rates as possible, and oppress them as much as

Preparing for the Reign of the First Widow 
We believe the 6 April 2017 Tomahawk missile attack on Syria indicates that Donald Trump has concluded that the fiscal, economic and political situations in the United States are beyond repair, and that without continued, massive military interventionism and spending, U.S. GDP will plunge, taking all of his campaign commitments down with it. Therefore, he has capitulated to the agenda of the Deep St

Venezuelan Escalates “War on Bread” As Food Shortages Continue to Plague a Hungry Population
This article was written by Tyler Durden and originally published at Zero Hedge. Editor’s Comment: In the great logic of governments, the Venezuelan dictator has essentially ordered an end to hunger by making a rule against food shortage. But no rule, no matter how strictly enforced, will work if there is no supply for the food. The shortages of imported food staples is the source problem here with the bread, not the conduct of the bakers, and yet they are facing new, and somewhat bizarre, imple

Trump's Top Econ Guy Just ANNIHILATED the Market's Growth Fantasy
The single biggest story this morning is Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin pouring ice-cold water on the market’s mania. Since Trump was elected November 8th 2016, the market has gone almost straight up on the notion that an economic utopia has arrived and that GDP growth of 5% (yes, CNBC ran numerous stories on this) was just around the corner. The mania has been incredible. The last time the market had a 1% down day was OCTOBER 11! From a daily RSI reading the S&P 500 is more overbought today

Time to Take the Other Side of the Trump Trade
The Trump Trade hit again on Friday when the White House announced that Trumps’ proposed tax reform is coming in the next few weeks. The markets took the new to ramp to new all-time highs. I’m not buying the hype. First and foremost, Trumps’ policies, (if implemented, which at best is a 50/50 chance right now) will at the earliest impact the economy 12 months. Stocks are meant to discount the future, but discounting a proposed tax reform that may or may not be implemented and would at best begi

After the Crash: “What Does the Future Hold For Average People Feudalism.”
This article was written by Daisy Luther and originally published at Editor’s Comment: It is difficult to say exactly how, or when, the next collapse will be triggered, but of course all the conditions are ripe for it. What can be certain is that the technocrats intent on controlling the future are already engineering the post-collapse society. Many of the Davos elite have been pushing “universal basic income” for all countries across the globe, and are leading people not only i
