Most Prestigious Financial Agencies Say Global Economy Is In Real Trouble

by WashingtonsBlog

Bad Government Policy Has Made It Likely We’ll Have a New Financial Crisis

The head of the world’s most prestigious financial body, the “Central Banks’ Central Bank” – The Bank for International Settlements – said recently the global financial system is currently “more fragile” in many ways than it was just prior to the collapse of Lehman Brothers, and that debt ratios are now far higher.

The World Bank, the [...]

CRASH2: Today’s big signs

BY JOHN WARD

 I think they are as follows:

1. The ECB’s Mario Draghi wants the bank to buy Greek and Cypriot sub-junk. It is a real sign of desperation which, the FT suggests, “may increase tensions between Germany and the European Central Bank”. That seems to me the height of Pink understatement.

2. The EU’s money market funds are ‘struggling to stay afloat as negative interest rates drain the industry’s lifeblood, with [...]

Swiss Demand Global Gold Recall despite Central Bankers – Charles Goyette

In a word association game, If I said Switzerland, you might say cheese or chocolate or maybe the alps. But another common item everyone associates with the Swiss is their money. Their banks. Their currency.

Soon, that currency could change in a big way. This November, a Swiss Gold Referendum is going to a vote, and the repercussions, one way or the other, could cast a shadow of uncertainty on the [...]

FACE FACTS: Until we take the money out of politics, there can be no real change, and no real peace

BY JOHN WARD

    POL GETTING MONEY UPFRONT+ POL WITH MONEY BEHIND HIM

For the nth time, let’s ban Party donations…and wake up to what UKip really is

Because the Australian mining companies are awash with money, and bankroll any politician they think can win, Australian politics is infected with private money. The same goes for Murdoch in the media there. Thus the miners and Murdoch are above the law, and own nearly [...]

Karl Denninger- We Could Be Headed for a 1930’s Style Depression…. ‘The longer that the Fed stays involved in their manipulation of market rates, the more likely it becomes…’

Is the economy getting ready to crash or take off to new highs? Karl Denninger of Market-ticker.org says, “How do you take off? Where is the consumption base that forms 60% of our economic output? We have a small percentage of the population that has done extremely well with this so called reflation. However, we have everybody else who has done very poorly.” One of the biggest drags on the [...]

Volcanic Winter Is Coming Soon – Volcano Eruptions Increasing

The number of Volcanoes that are erupting continues to rise, and scientists cannot seem to explain why this is happening. It is highly unusual for so many Volcanoes to all be erupting at the same time. This is sending a massive amount of dust and ash into the upper atmosphere, and it may explain why many parts of the planet are experiencing strangely cold weather at the moment. If this [...]

Ebola In America: The Confirmed Case In Dallas, Texas Could Change Everything

By Michael Snyder

The day that many of us hoped would never arrive is here.  Ebola has come to America.  Air travel between the United States and the countries of Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone should have been totally shut down except for absolutely essential personnel but it wasn’t.  And now our nation may end up paying a great price as a result.  On Tuesday, the CDC announced that there is [...]

I THOUGHT THE AUTO INDUSTRY WAS BOOMING

by James Quinn 

The MSM keeps telling me that auto sales are skyrocketing. They tout this as proof the consumer is back. Then why is Ford slashing their profit forecast by $1.5 billion? Why are their North American profit margins crashing? Why hasn’t their stock price moved at all in the last year? Why is their stock price 25% lower than it was in 2011? Why is GM’s stock price down [...]

China Accuses U.S. of Fomenting Hong Kong Unrest

by WashingtonsBlog

Has the U.S. Egged On the Protests?

The mass demonstrations in Hong Kong are dramatic, indeed. And given that Hong Kong has long enjoyed a more liberal existence under British rule, protests against a more authoritarian Chinese government (or at least it used to be more authoritarian) are not entirely surprising.

But Chinese officials accuse the U.S. of egging on the protests.  As the Wall Street Journal’s China Real Time blog [...]

One Of The Most Famous Market Crashes In Modern History Happened After US GDP Had Expanded For 20 Straight Quarters

A well-known market strategist recently said “rational exuberance” is at work in today’s stock market, based on a growing economy and the prospect for strong corporate earnings.

The U.S. Government Is Borrowing About 8 Trillion Dollars A Year

By Michael Snyder

I know that headline sounds completely outrageous.  But it is actually true.  The U.S. government is borrowing about 8 trillion dollars a year, and you are about to see the hard numbers that prove this.  When discussing the national debt, most people tend to only focus on the amount that it increases each 12 months.  And as I wrote about recently, the U.S. national debt has increased by more [...]

Broad Definitions

A “public health emergency” can be declared not only for bioterrorism attacks, but also for epidemics, pandemic disease or natural disasters.

The terms “epidemic disease”, “pandemic disease” and “natural disaster” are not defined, leaving public health officials ample room for their own interpretation.

There are no limits on the number or types of tests that can be performed on individuals, or on [...]
