With Greece suffering the biggest economic depression in decades, all so a few rich men can preserve their wealth and not have their EUR-denominated savings wiped out (even if the alternative means finally being able to rebalance externally using the Drachma instead of forcing internal rebalancing via unemployment and plunging wages), it was only a matter of time before we found out just how humiliating the conversion of the entire [...]
There is no better topic than gold to polarise an investment discussion. So the recent sharp drop in the metal’s price has pushed to fever pitch the debate between two camps with deeply held convictions: those who view gold as overvalued and lacking both income and capital appreciation attributes; and those who feel it is only a matter of time before others appreciate again gold’s unique role as an [...]
—-> US dollar is based on oil

According to Zerohedge, news now coming out (confirming what I’ve long suspected) that our interests in going to war with Iran are really all about protecting the dying dollar.
BRICS is a real threat and Iran is a huge chink in the armor.

[Thursday], the rumor turned out to be a joke. Today, there was no rumor, but as we warned, it was only a matter of time.
Less than four hours later, the time has come, and Jon Hilsenrath’s “Fed Maps Exit from Stimulus,” conveniently appearing after the close, has just been released.
From Hilsy… pointing out what everyone already knew:

Do you actually believe that the central banks of the world are going to sit back and do nothing while their monopoly over money creation is being threatened? Do you actually believe that the governments of the world are going to allow a digital currency that they have no control over to become “the future of money”? If so, then you are incredibly naive. Wars have been started over much [...]
‘Real’ Jobless Rate Still Above 10% In Most States…
Nowhere is that more apparent than in employment.
Though employment has risen by 1.3 million over the past year, unemployment that counts the discouraged and underemployed, as well as the jobless (often called the “real” unemployment rate) has remained stubbornly high, at 13.8 percent of the workforce, according to the most recent count.
In fact, a state-by-state look at the numbers, released a few [...]
US PMI COMES IN JUST ABOVE EXPECTATIONS AT 52.1
Markit’s April U.S. manufacturing PMI survey results are out.
The headline index came in at 52.1, slightly above the flash estimate of 52.0 published earlier this month, but down from March’s 54.6 reading.
Any reading above 50 on the index signals expansion, so the 52.1 reading in today’s release suggests that American manufacturing is still expanding, but at a markedly slower pace than in March.

Well if I lived in Spain. Greece or Italy, do you know what I would be doing tomorrow? Trotting off down to my local bank and withdrawing all my savings and then either stuffing it under my mattress, putting it into a German bank, or buying property or gold with it.

Unless something truly dramatic happens, it is only a matter of time before China overtakes [...]
February 10th, 2013
With the the U.S. economy having once again dropped into negative recessionary growth, currency wars around the world heating up through direct and indirect devaluations, and trillion dollar fiscal deficits piling on, how is it possible that the stock market, a key measure of economic health for many Americans, is touching near all time highs?
Marin Katusa, Chief Strategist at Casey Research, suggests that this effect can be traced to [...]
This is starting to get a bit scary. Just a matter of time before the web is locked down and TPTB blame Anonymous for collapsing the economy and an excuse to roll out Martial Law!

If the UN is given control of the Internet, that would be a massive step toward making the UN a true global government. The Internet is the number one venue for free speech and freedom of expression on the planet today, and if the UN is given authority over the Internet it would only be a matter of time before free speech is severely cracked down on. Of course it [...]

The U.S. faces a financial storm of biblical proportions; I am talking a Noah’s Ark tsunami. The real fiscal cliff isn’t what is coming at the end of the year. It is the debasement of the U.S. dollar at the hands of the Federal Reserve that is printing $85 billion every month in “open-ended” currency creation. According to experts, it is only a matter of time before the U.S. [...]

Williams says, “There’s no way the consumer can fuel the economic recovery, and there is no way we’re going to see one in the near future. The Treasury is going to have funding problems, [...]

Another “Flash Crash” in the financial markets could happen at any moment because of high frequency trading, warns former hedge fund analyst David Lauer.
