  China’s Central Bank Makes Even the Heroic Fed Look Like a Bunch of Amateurs

Wolf it's ok to print money if you actually make something, and more of it every day. That's no bubble. You just need to keep up with wealth creation. Bubble is when you make nothing but money.

  Spanish Reader on Rise of "Podemos" a New Far-Left Political Party in Spain  (3)
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
I'm also from Spain, and I can assure you that David's analysis is good and neutral, wich is difficult in this polarized ambient.
But there is a mistake, "December 2014/January 2015 is the limit date for the next Spanish legislative elections" is incorrect, the correct date is December 2015/January 2016.

  Japan's Last Stand
 - Michael Pento - Delta Global Advisors
I think there is more to the story than meets the eye. Consider this:
"In addition to this, Japan's state pension fund (the GPIF), intends to dump massive amounts of Japanese government bonds (JCB's) and to double its investment in domestic and international stocks. "

The pension system is converting assets in JCB to equities.
If the businesses survive, then mayhaps the investment has greater potential to retain some value than what the GPIF considered the JCB will retain.
If you know you are going belly-up, then you shift assets to retain some value.

It is awful easy to assume these death throw type decisions by the PTB are completely reactionary.
What if all the PTB, world-wide, know this game is about over?
Wouldn't you try t...

  Gold: Bull Flag In Play
 - Stewart Thomson - Graceland Update
Gold broke 1200 this morning for a while and looked like it was on the rise. That must have scared the hell out of someone because within a matter of a few minutes it dropped back down $15 us, back below 1200. A couple/few months ago gold and silver were on the rise and it seemed obvious to me that someone dumped a bunch of both in to the market to drive the prices back down. It took a little effort on someone's part but when it finally worked, the bottom dropped out of both to the lowest I've seen in several years. That's just how it looked to me.

  Curiosities  (4)
 - Bob Hoye - Institutional Advisors
I was gonna stop with the previous post, but sometimes it becomes obvious that truth must be outed.

There is an additional aspect to the old money investments versus investments in disruptive technology that sets liberals butts on fire.
New investments threaten the social blackmail that is already streaming revenue to somebody's sacred cow.

Ever notice the demands made by locals with the push of centralized enviro-groups to get new businesses, especially those in extractive and manufacturing enterprises, to contribute to local social projects? They call it social responsibility.

Oddly enough, prior to the new business there was fewer jobs. Then along comes a business offering more jobs and this somehow gets translated to a social respon...

 - Bob Hoye - Institutional Advisors
Excellent.
It is always about the money.
Only my opinion but based upon 45-50 years of observation.
Democrats tend to protect old money. Old money defined as monies already invested and returning a profitable revenue stream.
Republicans favor new money generation. New money can only be created through a process now termed disruptive technology.
Disruptive equates to a real threat to old money revenue streams.
Think automobile versus Conestoga wagons and horse collars.
Internet versus radio and newspapers.
It is always about the money.

A long time ago there was a term called "Political Economy".
The term fell out of favor, but the supporting reality will always live on.
The people are basically livestock.

The last time this Comedy (Part One) played out was back when the People on the Street, the Republican People, were insisting and demanding that Judge Roberts be put on the Supreme Court. They saw him as Their Great Messiah, the one who would FINALLY put the final nail in the ObamaCare coffin by declaring it Unconstitutional. I remember the look on their faces when Their Chosen One turned on them. It was priceless ! !

Catalon will face stiff resistance should it continue to pursue independence.
The Spanish Supreme Court ruled independence out.
Rajoy now has the legal authority to prevent it.
The only way to prevent independence is by overwhelming force.
This is absolute proof that modern democracies are in fact dictatorships.

Currently:
You do NOT have the right of association. That is the very definition of independence.
You do NOT have the right to come and go. Just try leaving your country with all your assets.
You do NOT have the right to use the currency of your choice. You must use the authorized currency of the day.
You DON'T have the right to a stable currency. Any accumulation of wealth is called hoarding and the word "Capitalist"...

  The War on Terror  (4)
 - Michael S. Rozeff - Lew Rockwell
The issue on why the US keeps attacking sovereign nations really boils down to one thing and that one thing is easy to identify. What is it, follow the money to find it. Who benefits from all this warring? The mega corporations who manufacture the weaponry, the ones who keep lobbying politicians and lining the pockets of the willing politicians.

These corporations are so greedy that human life is nothing more than a way to earn extra bucks. The more people there are that will fight, the more bullets and bombs they have to produce to kill the fighters with. The more people that are killed in the endless war on terror = more profit for these guys.

If only there were a handful of politicians that had the back bone to say no to the mega corps our kids...

As usual, you're just ranting. I have extensive direct foreign policy experience, but you wouldn't know that because you don't know me whatsoever.

I'll put my foreign policy credentials and experience up against Ron Paul's any day of the week.

We've disagreed, but I have NEVER lied. You call disagreements 'lies' because you have no depth of ability to respond. Also I've not been 'distributing' anything--just disagreeing with you, Ron Paul, and Libertarians on foreign policy. Disagreeing with Ron Paul doesn't constitute lying; just disagreeing.

 - James Howard Kunstler - 
Kunstler, commenting on the government he helped vote into power, says about that government: "The one thing it does exceedingly well is drain the remaining capital from endeavors that might contribute to the greater good." Despite the socialist Obama has been, apparently he has not enacted enough social legislation to satisfy Kunstler. And the people of America as well have disappointed him. He says, "For instance, the voters slapped down virtually every major ballot proposition to invest in light rail and public transit around the country."

You see Kunstler has been and is against individuals living their lives as they see fit. For him it is the "greater good" that matters, and who is to determine that good? Why people like Kunstler of course, who, fo...

So the question still remains, if indeed what you say is true, there were WMD in Iraq, please enlighten us why the Dubya crew didn't crow it from the roof tops, instead they were mute on the subject after destroying the country for years and not finding a thing.

Again, you link one story, sketchy at best and so short with subjective verbiage, as the proof that WMD were found, that it is laughable. Yes I've done search's. Did I find anything that vindicates you? No. Did I find conspiracy theories and US gov propaganda, yes. Did I find anything that would "vindicate" you, no.

I contend that sanctions exit for one of only two reasons.
1. The intent is to escalate the conflict.
2. Politicians are a direct representation of those who elected them.

Arguments in favor of each possibility.
1. Sanctions directly harm the citizenry.
This creates ill will towards the country imposing the sanctions.
Contrary to popular beliefs, the citizenry will support their nation be it right or wrong.
Ergo no pressure from the citizenry to force a change that would result in sanctions being lifted.

2. They call our system of governance "representative democracy" in spite of the Constitution's guarantee of a republican form of government.

If you'd been following along from the beginning you would have seen that I've been the one getting personally attacked from the start. None of these people know me, but have called me a 'poser', a 'liar', and on and on. I'm not a member of the Ron Paul mutual admiration society as I noted at the beginning--really only because of his foreign policy silliness--but to not be one his clique here on 24hrGold subjects you to all kinds of unwarranted personal abuse. Ron Paul has much to admire, but he's dead wrong on foreign policy and it holds back many from taking him seriously, as demonstrated every time he runs for President.

It is clear from your very first sentence that you are insulting, attacking, and being far from civil as is required by the comments policy. Clearly 24hrGold agreed with me.

Secondly, you remember in error. All I ever said on WMD was that I was there and I saw it--not that I know someone who knows someone who knows someone. So you're wrong there also.

Thirdly, you're the one that said there was NO mustard gas in Iraq--none whatsoever. That is YOUR claim, that I told you was false. The New York Times as well as wiki-leaks have now published stories (since you refuse to believe someone like myself that was there) demonstrating that, once again, you were WRONG.
