    Roughly 2 ¼ centuries ago, a member of the French aristocracy (Marie Antoinette) was reputedly quoted as saying “let them eat cake”, as her naïve response to the plight of starving, French peasants (shortly before the French Revolution). Historians now cast doubt as to whether this line was ever uttered by her, and it’s quite possible it was merely attributed to her...

    Here is a conundrum for readers to unravel. Throughout 2011, 2012, and early into 2013; central banks in Eastern and Emerging Market nations went on the largest (official) gold-buying binge in history. This occurred as the currencies of these nations were relatively stable, and thus “inflation” pressures were relatively muted. Now flash-forward to early 2014. We have what the...

  • The West’s Debt-Bomb

    In the news today; we saw the Corporate media engage in a typically Machiavellian attempt to present the West’s “debt problem”. It did this by first hiding the explosion of Western debt within the total growth of overall global debt. The amount of debt globally has soared more than 40 percent to $100 trillion since the first signs of the financial crisis as governments...

  • IMF: Wealth Inequality Harms Economies

    84 Reads | 0 Comments | March 5, 2014

    For the past three decades; we have been subjected to the mythology that when the Rich get richer “it’s good for the economy”. This mythology has been debunked in several of my own previous commentaries, most notably The Pareto Threshold. In that piece; it was explained that wealth-inequality was not merely “harmful” to economies, but rather when it becomes too...

    In 2013; we saw a series of momentous and unprecedented events. It started in March with “the Cyprus Steal”, as the Western banking crime syndicate pushed our Puppet Governments to introduce (and rubber-stamp) a new form of financial crime – the “bail-in”. This then triggered a series of unprecedented events in the gold market. First, the Cyprus Steal alerted...

    Few noises emitted by the U.S. (and Western) mainstream media have been as shrill or as sustained as the endless accusations that “China is a currency-manipulator”. Every time the renminbi falls in value versus the dollar (and sometimes merely because it doesn’t rise); we hear the U.S.’s political puppets burst into a familiar chorus. China is (supposedly) deliberately...
