The Elites Are Jumping Ship As The Financial Collapse Draws Near

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com, It’s easy to think of the political and financial elites who run our world as lofty and all powerful. They command dangerous governments that can wield devastating weapons, central banks that treat our economy like a rigged casino, media conglomerates that pacify the minds of the public, and unbelievably wealthy corporations that have concentrated wealth to an unprecedented degree. However, they’re certainly not invincible, and the systems of control...

The Empire Strikes Back: Japan Jacks Up US Beef Import Tariffs To 50%

President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw the US from the 12-nation Trans Pacific Partnership angered the Japanese, provoking fears of a bruising trade showdown between the world’s largest and third-largest economies. On Friday, the Japanese instituted a new policy that will do little to assuage those concerns. After Japan signed a sweeping trade agreement with the European Union, a move that pundits warned would weaken the US’s position as a dominant player in the global economy, the...

Central Bankers ‘Are’ The Crisis

Authored by Raul Ilargi Meijer via The Automatic Earth blog, If there’s one myth - and there are many - that we should invalidate in the cross-over world of politics and economics, it‘s that central banks have saved us from a financial crisis. It’s a carefully construed myth, but it’s as false as can be. Our central banks have caused our financial crises, not saved us from them. It really should -but doesn’t- make us cringe uncontrollably to see Bank of England governor-for-hire Mark Carney...

“Deeply-Flawed Western Economic Models” Are Undermining The Worst Global Recovery In History

With stocks at record highs, seemingly proving that everything must be awesome in the world, Chris Watling, chief executive of Longview Economics, shocked CNBC on Friday by reminding them that "this is undoubtedly the lowest quality economic recovery we have seen globally... full stop." The reason is simple, Watling continued, "the economic model is deeply flawed and the system in the west is deeply flawed, particularly in the English speaking part of the world and it needs to change." The...

China’s Ghost Recovery

Authored by Jeffrey Snider via Alhambra Investment Partners, To the naked eye, it represents progress. China has still an enormous rural population doing subsistence level farming. As the nation grows economically, such a way of life is an inherent drag, an anchor on aggregate efficiency Chinese officials would rather not put up with. Moving a quarter of a billion people into cities in an historically condensed time period calls for radical thinking, and radical doing. In one official party...

John Mauldin Warns “Prepare For Turbulence”

Authored by John Mauldin via MauldinEconomics.com, “The job of the central bank is to worry.” – Alice Rivlin “The central bank needs to be able to make policy without short-term political concerns.” – Ben Bernanke “… from the standpoint of the overall economy, my bottom line is we’re watching it closely but it appears to be contained. – Ben Bernanke, repeatedly, in 2007 “Would I say there will never, ever be another financial crisis? You know, probably that would be going too far, but I do...

All Conundrums Matter

Authored by Jeffrey Snider via Alhambra Investment Partners, Since we are this week hypocritically obsessing over monetary policy, particularly the federal funds rate end of it, it’s as good a time as any to review the full history of 21st century “conundrum.” Janet Yellen’s Fed has run itself afoul of the bond market, just as Alan Greenspan’s Fed did in the middle 2000’s. But that latter example wasn’t truly the first conundrum for monetary policy. There remain a great many questions (in the...

The New World Order Takeover Is Very Real… And Will Begin With Germany And China

Authored by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market.com, In numerous articles over the years I have outlined in acute detail the agenda for a future one-world economic and governmental system led primarily by banking elites and globalists; an agenda they sometimes refer to as the "New World Order." The term has gained such public exposure and notoriety recently that the globalists have fallen back to using different terminology. Some of them, like the International Monetary Fund's Christine Lagarde,...

The Hidden State Of Money: Bonds, Bias, & Bullshit

Authored by Jeffrey Snider via Alhambra Investment Partners, Correctly interpreting the bond market is more than just how and when to invest your money in UST’s. Not that it isn’t useful in such a money management capacity, but interest rates starting at the risk-free tell us a lot about what is wholly unseen. There is simply no way to directly observe inside an economy what is taking place at all levels and in all transactions. We try to estimate as best we can in the aggregate, but the real...
