  Ukraine Announces Full-Scale Army Operation on Pro-Russian Militants in Seized Buildings; Verge of C
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
The backlash against the newly installed IMF puppets was anticipated - it was coming sooner or later. Introducing austerity by cutting pension funds by as much as 50%, to facilitate an IMF loan, tends to act as a catalyst for unrest - which leads me to think the process was deliberate. Europe can't afford the bail-out nor can it afford to not purchase Russian gas. The whole situation places enormous pressure on

"JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, and the rest of the “1%” benefitting directly from Fed money printing have sacrificed billions of people in the name of power and ill-begotten wealth.

Not one rebuttal? you're usually full of arguments and opinion V. I'm asking a question... so that's a fairly good opportunity to pose an intelligent counter argument.

"How else are pension funds going to pull this off?" It has already been happening for decades. In the early 60's, my mother made $200/month as a LPN/receptionist. That was roughly equivalent to 140 ozt of silver coin. 140 ozt at $20/ozt is about $2800/month. Now imagine the above factoid applies to a defined benefits pension plan.

"The only way to offset that is to print money at exactly the same rate. All else being equal in terms of future economic prospects, to NOT print money at this point is to sell the country into voluntary bondage." Is it any wonder, then that that's exactly what most of the world is doing? Printing money to keep up? But we've lived with mandated inflation targets every single year for generations - worldwide.

Same old thing here Jim. The wars that have been fought for the last 50 some years have not been in defence of America. You seem to avoid reading Pauls comments (in every post he makes on the subject) that he fully backs having a strong military to DEFEND the US but never to wage wars where the military doesn't belong. The problem is that the Washington morons will claim that all of the failed wars that they ha

Well stated, but needs some additional elaboration. As an example: "The 1950s/60s in the US should not be considered as "normal" -- but rather as a one-off, extraordinary anomaly." And with it the peculiar notion that a large middle-class as normal. Who were and what percentage of the population was the middle class in 200AD, 1000AD and 1600AD?

I agree that these useless wars have taken a toll on our military, but I doubt if Paul would approve of ANY war organized by the government for the defense of America. Like Rockwell and his clique, he doesn't believe in any government at all.

  Markets are Rigged and the Media Acts Like That’s News
 - James West - Midas Letter
Well said, but let us not forget the rest of the story. I contend that every participant in the market has stared at their computer screen more than once and wished someone would push their stock either up or down. In effect, wished someone else would manipulate the price for personal gain. Ergo, the hypocrisy of complaints about market manipulation. Humans, so predictable!

West swindled China once already in 19th century by demonetising silver and dumping most of world's silver reserves on China.

I believe the single storage of value is engineer, and this is where China beats the rest of the world, not only West, with their hands d
