Sell, Sell, Sell… The Central Bank Madmen Are Raging… Everywhere The Real World Evidence Points To Cooling Growth, Faltering Investment, Slowing Trade, Vast Excess Industrial Capacity, Peak Private Debt, Public Fiscal Exhaustion, Currency Wars…

The global financial system has come unglued. Everywhere the real world evidence points to cooling growth, faltering investment, slowing trade, vast excess industrial capacity, peak private debt, public fiscal exhaustion, currency wars, intensified politico-military conflict and an unprecedented disconnect between debt-saturated real economies and irrationally exuberant financial markets.

Yet overnight two central banks promised what amounts to more monetary heroin and, presto, the S&P 500 index jerked up to 2070. That is, the robo-traders inflated the PE multiple for S&P’s […]

Central banks around the world entered the Mad Hatter stage of our visit to Wonderland with the direct debasement of the value of their sovereign debts via Quantitative Easing.

by James Quinn

With stocks in Moon Launch Mode after China’s central bank “surprised” everyone by promising to turn more debt into wealth with the wave of a magic wand, it’s time to review what apparently very few people see.

Most of the time, when someone issues an IOU the only reason it is accepted is that the person agreeing to hold it believes he’s get paid. This is obvious.

Gold And Silver – Is the Golden Rule Broken?

by Michael Noonan

Saturday  22 November 2014

He who owns the gold rules.

That has been the clichéd “wisdom” for some time.  However it appears Russia has become
the Rodney Dangerfield of the Golden Rule, for it certainly is not getting any respect.  To
the contrary, the Golden Rule has become subservient to Military Rule, the last remaining
leg upon which the US rests in its ongoing inability to retain  respect internationally.

As formidable as US military […]

Big Money Is Gushing In All Directions: This Is a Sign the Startup Bubble Is Totally Maxed Out: It Resorts to (um, Sexy) Junk Mail to Disrupt

Wolf Richter,

As I was finally cleaning out the junk receptacle that my mailbox has become, I found a thick, nearly black envelope among the wadded-up fliers. It was sent to “Resident” and titled “San Francisco Offers.” Kudos. Whoever was trying to get through to me, made it.

It contained six glossy, multicolored sheets, each for a different company. It must have cost a bundle. I was getting ready to toss […]

Have Central Banks Entered an Undeclared War?

by Charles Hugh-Smith

The monetary tectonic plates are shifting, and predicting the next global financial earthquake is relatively easy.

I recently suggested that the devaluation of the yen was Japan’s Monetary Pearl Harbor: a direct attack on the currencies of its major trading partners: the euro (European Union), the won (South Korea), the Australian dollar (AUD) and the U.S. dollar (USD), which affects both the U.S. and China since China’s currency, the […]

10 Examples Of The Social Decay That Is Eating Away At America Like Cancer

It isn’t just our economy that is crumbling.  Something is happening to America that no amount of money will be able to fix.  Everywhere around us we can see evidence of the social decay that is systematically eating away at the foundations of our society.  It can be found on the streets of our inner cities, in dark basements in extremely rural communities, in the most prestigious boardrooms […]

Deformations On The Dealer Lots: How The Fed’s ZIRP Is Fueling The Next Subprime Bust

On any given day, Janet Yellen is busy squinting at 19 essentially meaningless labor market graphs on her “dashboard”, apparently looking for evidence that ZIRP is working. Well, after 71 months of zero money market rates—-an unprecedented financial absurdity—-there are plenty of footprints dotting the financial landscape.

But they have nothing to do with sustainable jobs. Instead, ZIRP has fueled myriad financial bubbles and speculations owing to the desperate scramble for “yield” that […]

The Future Of Relationships? Soon Millions Of Men Will Be Having Sex With Life-Like Female Robots

By Michael Snyder

If men had a choice between real women and female robots that were almost “virtually indistinguishable” from real women, which would they choose?  Certainly many men would never be willing to totally give up on relationships with living, breathing women, but as robotic technology continues to advance at an exponential rate there will be men (and women) that will be tempted to abandon real relationships entirely.  And that […]

M. Jean-Clauder Juncker test-drives the new euro

After a great deal of deliberation, altercation, masturbation and machination, the Bundesbank and the European Central Bank have decided to relaunch the euro, which will in future be backed by the Bog Standard.

First and foremost, the acronym matches that of […]

“The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government…at the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller–Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as the international bankers.” -Mayor of NYC John Hylan, 1922


Hylan’s most famous statement against “the interests” was the following speech, made in 1922, while he was the sitting Mayor of New York City:[8]

The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation. To depart from mere generalizations, let me say that at the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller–Standard Oil interests and a […]

Commerzbank, Germany’s Second-Largest Bank, Which Was Bailed Out By Taxpayers, Will Now Reward These Very Folks With NEGATIVE INTEREST RATE Of -0.25%

Frankfurt, Rome, Paris, Berlin, London & Washington: the forced march of two opposing philosophies

We In The Center That Cannot Hold Can Only Watch As Things Fall Apart. In So Many Ways, The Falcon Can No Longer Hear The Falconer.

by Charles Hugh-Smith

We in the center that cannot hold can only watch as things fall apart.

In so many ways, the falcon can no longer hear the falconer. The phrase is drawn from William Butler Yeats’ poem, The Second Coming:

Turning and turning in the widening gyre

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere

Why is sickcare (a.k.a. “healthcare”) absurdly unaffordable in America? There are many structural reasons which I have covered in depth for years, but one that most of us can relate to from personal experience is needless, hyper-costly […]

Obama’s Executive Action Will Finish Off America, Economic Consequences Of Unilateral Amnesty Will Be A Death Blow.

Obama’s unconstitutional executive action “to shield millions of undocumented immigrants,” as The New York Times puts it, is a brazen effort to further impoverish the American middle class and convert the country into a third world wasteland.

This reality is ignored by the corporate media as it celebrates Obama’s “landmark” betrayal of the Constitution.
