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

The FDIC Insurance was raised from $100,000 to $250,000 in this last crisis in the USA. Sorry old habit. I should also state, that the major banking crisis is in Europe – NOT the USA. However, the crisis we will face is created by the REPO […]

When we commented on Mel Watt’s Einsteinianly-insane plans to reform FHFA, allowing bad creditors to buy houses (again) with only 3% down-payments (again), we expected nothing but echoes as the”it’s everyone’s ‘right’ to own a home”-meme gets played out for all to see in this goldfish-like […]

Almost exactly a month ago, long before the Texas Ebola fiasco, when virtually nobody had heard of a small company out of Ronkonkoma, NY called Lakeland Industries and whose only product is “industrial protective clothing for industry, municipalities, healthcare and to first responders” i.e., Hazmat suits, […]

The Post Gold Default World
After President Nixon’s gold default in 1971, many people advocated a return to the gold standard. One argument has been repeated: consumer prices are rising. While this is true, it wasn’t compelling in the 1970’s and it certainly doesn’t fire people up […]

How do you like that Dow? Down 272 on Tuesday. Then back up almost exactly as much on Wednesday. As we predicted, volatility is rising. Investors are beginning
to squirm. Why?
The Fed is ending QE. And it could hike short-term interest rates as […]

Oh woe! The voters are catching on.
This week saw the 18th anniversary since the Earth’s temperature last rose – something that Dr Benny Peiser, from the Global Warming Policy Forum, says experts are struggling to understand.

People tend to be creatures of habits. It always intrigues me how most of the people I speak with seem to already assume that prices will always go up. It is the default life position. They know the sun will rise, grass will typically be green, and […]

Another in what seems to be a small parade of scandals involving secretly recorded tapes of Federal Reserve regulators emerged last week. What a number of writers (including me) have written about regulatory capture over the past decade was brought out into the open, at least for […]

A Comprehensive Interview with the ECB Dissenter
Jens Weidmann, president of the German Bundesbank, is well-known for his disdain of the ECB’s unconventional policy measures. He continues to believe that the way forward does not require ever looser monetary policy, but economic reform. On […]

(NaturalNews) The worsening Ebola outbreak in West Africa has become so much of a U.S. national security issue that President Obama has ordered as many as 3,000 U.S. troops and personnel there to help deal with the crisis. But for some reason, the president […]

A Test of Broken Trendlines from Below?
