Money stock imploding in the U.S. and most countries
“Greyerz: “Eric, this year we have been talking about the autumn being a critical time in terms of being an inflection point for the world economy and global markets. In every single area of the world there are problems. Japan alone has enough debt and deficits that that when it implodes it should create a worldwide depression. And China, the former growth engine of the world, is struggling. It’s important to look at the consumption of commodities in China. Right now they are declining rapid

Whoodathunkit: Secret tapes show New York Fed is the tool of the big banks
By Jake Bernstein ProPublica, New York Friday, September 26, 2014 Barely a year removed from the devastation of the 2008 financial crisis, the president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York faced a crossroads. Congress had set its sights on reform. The biggest banks in the nation had shown that their failure could threaten the entire financial system. Lawmakers wanted new safeguards. The Federal Reserve, and, by dint of its location off Wall Street, the New York Fed, was the logical choice to

Cartel Suicide
In recent years, the vast majority of Western denizens have been so worn down by economic failure and so dumbed down by socialism the will to reason has been irreparably damaged.  Sadly, even the impetus to try has been disabled; subsequently, fostering a “bread and circuses” culture where intellectual thought – let alone, common sense – has on a widespread basis been all but eradicated.  True, most aren’t even paying attention to propaganda of “recovery”; as frankly, their decaying lives are no

Art Cashin on the Selloff
Art Cashin, Director of floor operations at the NYSE for UBS, talks about yesterday’s huge stock sell-off following Wednesday’s fresh record highs. As is the case for most pundits, Cashin offers no clear reason for the change in market sentiment. Cashin notes: “Rumor-mongers are out and about so viewers should be careful … it’s clearly rather heavy selling … there’s nothing narrow about this selloff.” It’s worth pointing out that one phrase that was noticeably absent from the discussion of yest

Sick Man of Europe is Europe; Blame the Socialists, Progressives, Greens, and the Euro Itself
Joel Kotkin writing for New Geography hits the nail smack on the head with his assessment Sick Man of Europe is Europe. Throughout the continent, public support for a united Europe fell sharply last year. Opposition to greater integration has emerged, with anti-EU parties gaining support in countries as diverse as the United Kingdom, Greece, Germany and France. The new reality is epitomized by France’s ascendant far-right political figure, Marine Le Pen, who is now leading in many polls to wi

French Farmers Upset Over Falling Prices, Torch Tax and Insurance Offices, Dump Produce
As a direct result of sanctions on Russia, there is an overabundance of fruits and vegetables in France, Spain, Poland, and elsewhere in Europe. Basic law of supply and demand dictates prices of crops would fall. And they did. While most foolishly want to stick it to Russia, few actually are willing to pay the price if it affects them. Here is another case in point: French Farmers Torch Tax Office in Brittany Protest. French vegetable farmers protesting against falling living standards have

As detailed in Dr. Marc Faber’s three bold predictions for 2014, his crystal ball gazing early in the year doesn’t look particularly prescient at the moment: 1. The market will continue to decline from its November high of 1,813 2. Best shorts for
