Modern wheat a “perfect, chronic poison”

DISCLOSURE FROM THE MAINSTREAM, and it’s not even subtle!

Irwin Kellner: Fed policy: Is it time for a change? Since low interest rates don’t seem to have saved the U.S. economy, Irwin Kellner asks: How about higher rates?

By Irwin Kellner, MarketWatch

Since low interest rates haven’t worked, how about higher rates?

Now don’t get me wrong. I am not talking about tight money.

I don’t want the Federal Reserve to start shrinking the money supply. That would repeat the mistakes made by the central bank in the 1930s, which led to deflation and a severe contraction in economic activity.

What I am talking […]

The Stock Market Is On Life Support

The stock market continues to be on life-support, depending on the actions of the Fed and other central banks to arouse it from its lethargy.  While Bernanke’s statement and testimony before Congress was somewhat disappointing to those hoping fervently for a hint that QE3 was just around the corner, the hope is still alive.

The people finally realized that we are serfs in a feudalistic system

John Perkins Information Clearinghouse November 7, 2011

My job as an economic hit man during the 1970s was to enslave nations that had resources our corporations coveted by burdening them with debts they could never repay. We then demanded that they sell those resources cheap, without social or environmental regulations, to our corporations.
