The FED’s Forked Tongue

Ben Bernanke is a one-trick pony and running the printing presses, i.e. bond buying, is Bernanke’s only trick. Bernanke, a central banker, however may have a less transparent motive in mind. Bernanke knows the Fed’s bond-buying has led to speculative bubbles around the world. But Bernanke also knows that without the Fed’s continuing lifeline, US demand would plummet sending the world into perhaps another deflationary depression.

United States Of America – Too Many Open Questions

United States Of America – Too Many Open Questions

As the latest and greatest scandal, act of tyranny, unfolds before the United States citizenry, we have to look back and ask why. Why would the government need to collect every stroke of the keyboard, every phone call made and every website visited? If the government isn’t out of control and attempting something that’s very sinister in nature, then why would this information be necessary? What is the point of collecting all this information on each and every citizen?

Does America Still Know Rule Of Law – Nationally, Internationally, Or At All

Does America Still Know Rule Of Law – Nationally, Internationally, Or At All

What is this all about anyway? Is America in such bad shape that it needs to criminalize its citizens and its supposed Swiss friends? Is complete citizen transparency and so-called “tax justice” really important enough to throw our long-time values and principles of freedom overboard?

It is very likely that we have reached a systemic tipping point in the debt and credit based economic model.

This article points to the potential effects of the “debt trap.” Debts have mounted to record highs. The associated financing costs become unsustainable when interest rates are high (or start rising).

SOS Distress Warnings From A Crazy World

SOS Distress Warnings From A Crazy World

There are many more insanities in our financial and political systems than have been mentioned here. The consequences will be unpleasant, but we expect no material systemic change without a major crisis. This suggests a crisis is inevitable. When? It will occur when some event destabilizes the system and interrelated cascading failures occur. Cyprus was the warning! Cyprus was the “Mayday!” and the “SOS” to the world. Are you prepared?

Jim Rickards: We Have Both Inflation And Deflation Right Now

Jim Rickards: We Have Both Inflation And Deflation Right Now

We have two things going on at once right now. You have deflation which is perfectly natural and what you would expect in a depression. Against that, we have inflation from the Fed money printing. In rough numbers we might have 4% deflation and 5% inflation at the same time which net out to about 1% inflation in the CPI. That is not a stable series; that is actually two forces pushing against each other.
