In the middle of November, the CEO of Vodafone Vittorio Colao warned of a “prisoner’s dilemma” in the efforts to offer bundled television and broadband services. It makes sense for a company to seek unique content to differentiate it from others. However, if all the […]

A surprising range of news and opinion outlets have memorialized a string of anniversaries related to the Great War over the last few months: the assassination of the Archduke, the July Crisis, the start of the war, etc. Newspapers, magazines, the blog world, the top […]

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
