The Kimberley Octahedron is an uncut diamond discovered in 1964 in South Africa in the Dutoitspan mine, one of the diamond mines situated in the Kimberley region of South Africa. The name of the diamond reflects its place of origin, the internationally renowned diamond producing region where the first diamonds were discovered in 1871.

  Henry Giroux On the Rise of Neoliberalism As a Political Ideology 
I think this highlights the false dichotomy between communism and market capitalism that was created in the 1980's.   The dichotomy was more properly between communist government and democracy, of the primacy of the individual over the primacy of the organization and the state, as embodied in fascism and the real world implementations of communism.  But we never think of it that way any more, if at all.  It is one of the greatest public relation coups in history.  One form of organizational op

  McDonald's Vows Fresh Thinking After Net Income Declines 30%; Mish Offers Some Advice
A 30% net income decline for McDonald's is quite startling to most. I wonder why such a decline took so long. In response to that pathetic performance, McDonald’s Vows Fresh Thinking. McDonald’s Corp. outlined plans for what it called fundamental changes to its business as it reported one of its worst quarterly profit declines in years, driven by problems in nearly every major part of its business. The 30% decline in net income for the period ended Sept. 30 was the latest in a string of dis

  Eurozone Rotting to the Core; Four Possibilities; Beyond the Math 
On October 6, I noted German Factory Orders Slump 5.7%, Most Since January 2009. The previous month was up 4.9%, so I averaged the two months noting "The average result is a decline of 0.4% per month, for the last two months. That process also means four consecutive months of decline." German numbers were particularly volatile allegedly due to timing of school holidays, but there is no way to smooth out four consecutive months of decline as anything other than overall weakness. Germany Slash

  Challenge to Keynesians "Prove Rising Prices Provide an Overall Economic Benefit"
The ECB has been concerned about falling consumer prices. I propose that's 100% stupid, yet that's the concern. When the euro declined vs. the US dollar, the ECB was happy that inflation would inch back up. The fear now is that falling oil prices will take away the alleged gain of a falling euro. With that backdrop, credit the Financial Times for the absurd headline of the week: Eurozone Fails to Benefit from Weak Currency as Oil Price Slides. Pity the policy makers given the job of rescuing

  The Fascist Threat 
Everyone knows that the term fascist is a pejorative, often used to describe any political position a speaker doesn’t like. There isn’t anyone around who is willing to stand up and say: "I’m a fascist; I think fascism is a great social and economic system." But I submit that if they were honest, the vast majority of politicians, intellectuals, and political activists would have to say just that.

  Russia's Currency Crisis: This Is So 2008! Are you getting that “it’s kinda like 2008 again” feeling? I am! In November of 2008, the Russian ruble was collapsing vs. the dollar, the Russian central bank was intervening in the foreign exchange market, Russian interest rates had risen to high levels, and I was writing an op-ed about it. Here’s what I wrote in 2008: On the surface, it appears that

  The Virtue of Hoarding 
Most people would admit to hoarding money only with a tinge of guilt, because to be a hoarder carries with it the suggestion of being a miser — a Scrooge. And yet, every participant in an economy based on indirect exchange holds some amount of money and can be said to be hoarding it, that is, declining to spend it. Hoarding is a strategy for achieving personal goals or for dealing with economic uncertainty.

The Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution is crystal clear in meaning. The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. FBI Director, James Comey, an Obama appointment, does not give a damn what the Constitution

  Gold Daily and Silver Weekly Charts - Life During Wartime
There is a steady drain of silver from the warehouses. Not large enough to matter, but a million ounces here, a million ounces there. Let's see if the precious metals can make that triple bottom stick, and break the downtrend. Longer term it is all about the physical supply. That is what matters in a nutshell. Everything else is commentary. Have a pleasant weekend.

Three major nations absent as China launches rival to Western development bank
SHANGHAI -- Australia, Indonesia, and South Korea skipped the launch of a China-backed Asian infrastructure bank on Friday as the United States said it had concerns about the new rival to Western-dominated multilateral lenders. China's proposed $50 billion Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank is seen as a challenge to the World Bank and Asian Development Bank, both multilateral lenders that count Washington and its allies as their biggest financial backers. China, which is keen to extend its inf

Scientists Discover Gold Grows On Trees 
ALL ABOUT GOLD Money doesnâ??t grow on trees, but according to scientists from CSIRO, gold most certainly does! Theyâ??ve discovered tiny â??nuggetsâ?? in the leaves and branches of eucalyptus trees growing in the Kalgoorlie region of Western Australia. CSIRO geochemist Dr Mel Lintern said the trees act as hydraulic pumps, drawing up water containing gold from tens of metres beneath the surface. â??As the gold is likely to be toxic to the plant, itâ??s moved to the leaves and branches where i

Foreign central banks cut U.S. bond stakes to lowest since May
Foreign central banks slashed their holdings of U.S. Treasuries at the Federal Reserve to their lowest level since May, Fed data released on Thursday showed. Analysts said the decline in U.S. government bond holdings likely stemmed from a combination of factors including booking profits on the recent rally in Treasuries, and the dollar which hit a four-plus year peak earlier this month. "Some central banks might be selling dollars to arrest its rise against their currencies. While export-oriente
