“Bullish wagers” on commodities soar

Some people find my use of the phrase “propaganda machine” offensive. However, we see example after example where the Corporate Media simply perverts the actual news into a banker-friendly agenda which is so obvious it cannot possibly be passed off as “objective reporting.”

As I’ve explained on many ...

North American depression hits movie theaters

One of the advantages of being a Big Picture guy is that when you survey the world from this more-distant perspective it becomes very clear (and simple) when it comes to identifying major trends. Further aiding this process are distinct patterns in human behavior, which tell us what we should expect...

Secret Panic

Regular readers know that going back more than a year now, I have been outlining two, potential (and nearly opposite) scenarios going forward. I indicated that either our economies would plummet into a high-inflation/hyperinflation price-spiral (due to excessive money-printing); or they would simply...

Canadian Housing Bubble Nears Implosion

I am far from the first writer to report that Canada’s housing-bubble is nearing some dramatic rupture. Indeed, I may be the last writer to have covered this topic – despite being based in Canada.

Why have I been the last scribe to jump on the media’s “bubble-mania” bandwagon concerning Canada’s hous...

U.S. “Nothing Like Europe” Claims Bloomberg

Regular readers will note that when I parrot the propaganda distributed by the mainstream media that Bloomberg is my most frequent example. I find Bloomberg’s content to be especially illustrative since (to me at least) they seem to be the most transparent, and “on message” with the content of their...

The Truth About Competitive Devaluation

It is common knowledge that the U.S. dollar has lost approximately 98% of its value since 1913. That was the year that a private bank called the “Federal Reserve” was given a monopoly to print all U.S. currency; and in exchange for that colossal privilege it was given a statutory mandate to protect ...

U.S. revises Q2 GDP higher

Understand that the entire reason why the talking-heads at the U.S. Federal Reserve have been talking (more and more) about more and more money-printing is that for nearly six months now we have seen a steady of stream of deteriorating numbers out of the U.S. economy – with most of the bad news bein...

China Stimulus Highlights Western Collapse

Yet again we see a Tale of Two Economies. One economy has a (real) plan. One economy has (real) growth. One economy acts proactively to address its problems.

Then there is the Other economy. It’s only “plan” is to lie about how bad things really are. Instead of economic growth, it has substituted muc...

U.S. ‘Prison Economy’ Secretly Grows

In writing “The U.S. Prison-Cell Economy” five months ago, I was speaking at least somewhat in metaphorical terms. However, as Bloomberg reveals to us in a recent article, for more and more of Corporate America, a U.S. “prison economy” is already a very literal concept.

Before I delve further into th...

It’s impossible to cover developments in the global economy, and the reporting of those developments without feeling a lot like Alice in Wonderland – surrounded by legions of “Mad Hatters”. This is especially true when covering the realm of anti-logic known as the U.S. economy.

We’re told that the U....
