schiffgold.com / BY MIKE FINGER / AUGUST 24, 2015

Jim Grant appeared on CNBC this morning with an explanation of the underlying reason why United States stocks just plummeted. His core message is that capitalism requires both success and failure. When central bankmonetary policy corrupts pricing as thoroughly as it currently has, it ruins the […]

The Asset They Love to Hate …

What’s Really Killing Capitalism

VANCOUVER, Canada – Hillary is taking the bull by the horns… and putting the knife between her teeth. She is a “take-charge” candidate and aims to let us know.

Yes, earlier his week, she promised to improve capitalism. Now, it’s the climate […]

Fed To Markets: You’re STILL Too Easy To Fool!

dollarcollapse.com / by John Rubino / JULY 30, 2015

These days no matter what the Federal Reserve actually says, the markets respond like dogs sensing a piece of bacon coming their way. This is so for several reasons:

1) The world is vastly overleveraged, which terrifies investors and traders with even a modest historical […]

jessescrossroadscafe.blogspot.com / 30 JULY 2015

“Pride goes before a destruction, and arrogance before a fall.”

Prov 16:18

This was a fairly lackluster day in US equities.

Sentiment is now back to somewhat complacent as the VIX has fallen back to a 12 handle.

I picked up a little VIX today. I may buy more if […]

Today’s Anti-Capitalists Ignore the Fundamental Problems of Socialism

mises.org / Jonathan Newman / JULY 27, 2015

Anti-market and pro-socialist rhetoric is surging in headlines (see also here, here, and here) and popping up more and more on social media feeds. Much of the time, these opponents of markets can’t tell the difference between state-sponsored organizations like the International Monetary Fund and actual […]

What’s Really Killing Capitalism

Stifling Growth

Zombies and cronies stifle the process of growth and wealth creation.

To add wealth, you have to add knowledge. That is, you have to learn to do things better.

The trouble with zombies is that they don’t want to learn. Learning […]

What’s Really Killing Capitalism

Spontaneous Order

Somewhere in British Columbia – “Do Not Hump” says the sign on the side of the boxcar. We had no idea why the Canadian Pacific Railway is putting its nose into our private lives. But the authorities are always trying to tell us […]

China’s Three Bubbles And What Could Cause Them To Burst

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 07/18/2015 10:45

It’s not always easy being a rising superpower, and the delicate task of returning the world to a bipolarity unseen since the height of the Cold War while managing to maintain some semblance of diplomacy with a dying hegemon that doesn’t realize its glory days are behind […]

europac.com / By Peter Schiff / July 15, 2015

While Greece is now dominating the debt default stage, the real tragedy is playing out much closer to home, with the downward spiral of Puerto Rico. As in Greece, the Puerto Rican economy has been destroyed by its participation in an unrealistic monetary system that it […]

When Capitalism Turns to Cannibalism

charleshughsmith.blogspot.com / by CHARLES HUGH SMITH / JULY 15, 2015

With authentic growth scarce, there’s no other way to reap huge profits but cannibalism.

When people say “capitalism has failed” or “capitalism has succeeded,” we have to ask: what type of capitalism do you mean? Authentic capitalism, in which capital is placed at risk to […]

Capitalism Has Become Socially Dysfunctional

paulcraigroberts.org / Paul Craig Roberts / July 4, 2015

If you have not read John Perkins’ book, Confessions Of An Economic Hit Man, you should. The book is easy to read and explains clearly from the inside how US corporations deceive foreign governments into debts that they cannot service or repay and then use the […]

Collapse, Part 2: The Nine Dynamics of Decay

charleshughsmith.blogspot.com / CHARLES HUGH SMITH / MONDAY, JUNE 22, 2015

Rome didn’t fall so much as erode away. That’s the template for collapse.

While collapse may be sudden, the decay that generated the collapse had been rotting away the foundation for years or decades. In distilling the vast literature on collapse into nine dynamics, […]

The Warren Buffett Economy——Why Its Days Are Numbered (Part 4)

davidstockmanscontracorner.com / by David Stockman / June 12, 2015

As documented in Parts 1-3, the Fed has generated a $50 trillion financial bubble since Alan Greenspan took the helm in August 1987. After 27 years, honest price discovery has been destroyed, thereby reducing the nerve centers of capitalism—-the money and capital markets—-to little more than […]

charleshughsmith.blogspot.com / CHARLES HUGH SMITH / THURSDAY, JUNE 04, 2015

Memo to the Fed: you are the enemy of the middle class, capitalism and the nation.

The Federal Reserve is appalled that we’re not spending enough to further inflate the value of its corporate and banking cronies. In the Fed’s eyes, your reason for […]

davidstockmanscontracorner.com / by Kana Nishizawa at Bloomberg • June 3, 2015

Capitalism, The Internet, And The Rebirth Of The Entrepreneur

bullionbullscanada.com / by Jeff Nielson / Wednesday, 27 May 2015 14:44

Ideologies are extremely slippery concepts. Indeed, they have become (intentionally) categories of quasi-religious dogma which sabotage thought more than they communicate thinking. It is for this reason that the dogma of all these ideological zealots rarely finds its way into any of these […]

Are Hedge Funds Worth More Than Kindergartens?

acting-man.com / Keith Weiner / May 28, 2015

Erroneous Assumptions

“The top 25 hedge fund managers made more than all the kindergarten teachers in the country,” declared President Obama in a discussion of poverty at Georgetown University. Calling them “society’s lottery winners,” he proposed to hike their taxes.

zerohedge.com / by Veronique De Rugy / 05/27/2015 22:00 -0400

When has crony capitalism really gotten out of control? How about when a major U.S. corporation (a huge defense contractor, no less) is publicly threatening government officials to leave the country if the federal government doesn’t continue to boost their profits through government handouts:

The Case for Nationalizing Monsanto

charleshughsmith.blogspot.com / CHARLES HUGH SMITH / SUNDAY, MAY 24, 2015

Ridding the world of Monsanto via a state buy-out would be a boon to humanity.

Capitalism fails in two situations: monopoly and state-capital cronyism. Monopoly extinguishes competition and that effectively extinguishes capitalism.

When the elites of the state and private capital collude, i.e. crony […]

Book review: ‘The Floating Kilogram’ — the Federalist Papers for a gold standard

gata.org / by cpowell on 2015-05-18

By Ralph Benko Forbes Monday, May 18, 2015

A recent article in The Week by progressive columnist Jeff Spross, “How Modern Capitalism Killed Self-Reliance,” observed that “the gold standard is a niche enthusiasm rejected by most economists.” Why that is so is curious. The hyperlink to his observation goes […]

Deutsche Bank’s Head Of Global Credit Strategy Explains Why “This Is Not Capitalism”

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 05/07/2015 09:01 -0400

When Deutsche Bank’s head of global fundamental credit strategy, Jim Reid, writes a blurb that could have come from any single Zero Hedge article posted here over the past 6 years, it makes us wonder if we, like that Onion, have missed our IPO window.

A fantasy that explains Globalism

jonrappoport.wordpress.com / by Jon Rappoport / May 6, 2015

Imagine this fantasy. In Indiana, all citizens are under the gun. They must work in factories where the wage is 20 cents an hour. There are no unions. When unions start to form, the leaders are arrested or killed. Employers and the state government provide unsanitary […]

Collaboration, Adaptation and Risk: Innovate or Die

charleshughsmith.blogspot.com / CHARLES HUGH SMITH / MONDAY, MAY 04, 2015

Collaboration, innovation and risk are all intrinsic to adaptation. Without adaptation, every system eventually perishes once conditions change.

One feature of capitalism that is rarely discussed is the premium placed on cooperation and collaboration. The Darwinian aspect of competition is widely accepted (and rued) […]
