Leaving the West Behind
Germany Looks East
Russia’s annexation of Crimea in March 2014 was a strategic shock for Germany. Suddenly, Russian aggression threatened the European security order that Germany had taken for granted since the end of the Cold War. Berlin had spent two decades trying to strengthen political and economic ties with Moscow, but Russia’s actions in Ukraine suggested that the Kremlin was no longer interested in a partnership […]
Graphene is just one atom thick, but it’s poised to cast a wide shadow over the future of business. Some 200 times stronger than steel yet lighter than paper and more flexible than a contortionist, graphene is hailed as a miracle material with the potential to revolutionize products and processes across industries from consumer electronics to biomedicine.
First isolated in 2004 by physicists Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, who won a […]

Summary: Our leaders lie to us because they can, because we don’t hold them to a higher standard. This breaks from American’s wild west traditions, where a man’s background was unknown but his reputation was everything. This post lists five of the most outrageous US government lies since WWII. A complete list would require you to spend all day reading it. When we no […]

Approximately 3% of the population is preparing for a major event to occur within the United States. As I read the headlines from week to week, it seems as though almost any SHTF scenario is possible in today’s day and age. There are financial issues, geopolitical instability, peculiar changes in our natural environment (e.g. -mass animal deaths), solar weather issues, etc. While some have absolute conviction in what they […]
Nobody wants to return to the kind of risky home loans that spurred 2008’s banking collapse. Sliding back toward lax lending would be nuts.
Yet Washington officially endorsed such loans this month.
Federally controlled mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac announced they’ll back loans to low-income Americans who put just 3% down, even though such loans have a high default rate.
The risky mortgage program has the blessing of Federal Housing Finance […]

Whether or not you’ve had time yet to plow your way through David Collum’s excellent 2014 Year in Review, our annual podcast with Dave always brings additional color to light — and this year’s is no exception.
To me, the global economic theme is existential risk. That’s a phrase I use repeatedly throughout my Year In Review. Things now seem to be coming to a head.
A metaphor that I came […]
Chris Powell of the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee (GATA) says the evidence is clear that central banks are intervening in all futures markets. Powell charges, “The documents don’t prove that any particular central bank is trading any particular futures contract on any given day, but they do show the central banks are trading secretly in all U.S. futures markets. That means our market economy has been destroyed. It really means […]

Make no mistake – there is now a state of open warfare on the streets of America. Earlier this year it was being reported that the number of police officers killed on the job was up 40 percent in 2014, and that was before all of the civil unrest caused by the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. At this point, attacks on police officers are becoming […]

For some retirees, Congress has played the Grinch this holiday season.
Tucked into the federal spending bill were provisions that will allow certain struggling multi-employer pension plans to reduce benefits already being received by retirees.
The move was the result of an alarm from the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. that multi-employer plans covering more than 1 million participants are substantially underfunded and, without legislative changes, will probably fail. The deficit for PBGC’s […]

Prior to the crash of 2008 global trade was rocking. It was a boon for shipping companies around the world who are responsible for moving raw materials, commodities and consumer products from one country to another. Wall Street, of course, had devised a way to track all of this movement and often pointed to the Baltic Dry Index (BDI) as the primary indicator for health in the global […]

Instability in the global economy is not solely indicated by sharp falls in financial markets. Large swings and rapid rises can, at times, also point to mounting problems. The events of last week were one such occasion.
It began with the plunge of the Russian rouble under the impact of falling oil prices, down more than 40 percent since June, and of tightening economic sanctions which have cut off […]

Nearly 20 years after reporters and congressional investigators caught the Clinton administration trying to register a million immigrants as new citizens and Democratic voters — many without proper documents — some Republicans fear the Obama administration is instituting a similar policy.
The November memorandum issued by the White House and Department of Homeland Security on immigration does more than give a reprieve to millions of illegal […]

Why weather the bone-chilling rocky surface of Mars when you could call the clouds of Venus’ earth-like upper atmosphere home?
That’s the question posed by a NASA project that envisions a future where humans might live in solar-powered airships 31 miles above Earth’s nearest neighbor.
Dubbed the High Altitude Venus Operational Concept (HAVOC) the project would first send a robotic scout to gauge the lay of the land (or clouds) followed by […]
