Kingdom Economics - The mindset of our political leaders is based upon a win/lose philosophy. ‘I’ must ‘win’ over my ‘enemy’ so that my vision of reality can prevail. This is the core mindset of our political leaders (globally). Those who can muster the strongest military might prevail (temporarily) over those with less military might. But over time […]

Kingdom Economics - Great speech by the Donald last night. His presentation will go down as very Presidential and positive. But were his core ideas (on select issues) sound logic and philosophy? Can he actually create a New America with his core ideas? Let’s take his view on ISIS to start. The Donald desires to eliminate ISIS from […]

Kingdom Economics - This mathematical model of economics is what our Central Banks follow! I witness a few minor down trends (in our stock indices) at times but when this happens markets soon reverse and head back UP. Why is this so prevalent in today’s global cyber economy? A key word is ‘cyber’ and another is ‘global’. Today, […]

Kingdom Economics - Back in the late 70’s I learned about the psychology of effective communication during a valuation seminar in Chicago, Illinois. The speaker/psychologist stressed that ‘words’ can refer to both ‘things’ and ‘results’. Things are what we all observe within nature. Results emerge from our life experiences. Words like happiness, success, joy, sadness, progress, etc. are […]

Kingdom Economics - In theory, our money units today can increase our index markets (essentially) forever! Think about our situation today. ‘Numbers’ are our money today and ‘numbers’ are units of our imagination (pure mental abstractions derived from our inner being). This means that (in theory) banks and our monetary administrators (our central banks) can elevate (increase) these ‘numbers’ […]

Kingdom Economics - Since the financial crisis of 2008 up until today…government leaders, our political advisers, and our banking administrators have essentially accomplished ‘nothing’ meaningful. Our financial problems today are actually much worse than during the last crisis. Our deficits are continuing, our total national and consumer debt has grown, our trade relationships have regressed, and our general […]

Kingdom Economics - Commerce is key to human survival and those who control our commerce control the system and the people. Today, our money system is changing from a ‘substance’ system to a metaphysical ‘symbol’ system. Money is transitioning to cyberspace from our historical observable space. This change is monumental when understood. This means that our entire global […]

Kingdom Economics - The evolution of money has entered a new paradigm where our money flows are now mostly within cyberspace. This new paradigm is now becoming global and ubiquitous as metal and paper money is being eliminated from circulation gradually and relentlessly. Historical monies like paper notes and fiat units of account tied or backed to a […]

Kingdom Economics - Scott (the Fed’s legal mind) is retiring according to an article in today’s W.S.J. Today’s W.S.J. article entitled ‘The Most Powerful Man in Washington You’ve Never Heard of’…written by Peter Conti-Brown reveals that events are rapidly changing at our centralized banking super-power institution. The Fed will soon be losing their primary legal counselor, Mr. Scott […]

Kingdom Economics - The above issue of Barron’s was 3.5 years prior to today, yet many thought a ‘bubble’ was present then. Today, our Dow Index is 20,611 (so what might we call today’s BUBBLE)? A HYPER BUBBLE? So far in 2017 our index markets have been increasing at record rates. New records are being set daily. Are we […]

Kingdom Economics -   There were two articles in today’s W.S.J. (Wall Street Journal) which were relevant to the issue of global currency manipulation. Judy Shelton had her opinion article called ‘Currency Manipulation Is a Real Problem’ and the other article was entitled ‘U.S. Eyes New Tactic to Press China’ (front page of W.S.J.). Both these articles point […]

February 13th, 2017 | Trump’s Economic Trinity!

Kingdom Economics - The above Trinity (Bannon, Mnuchin, Cohn) are prior Goldman Sachs loyalists! Peter Navarro is my only hope as a sound thinker on economic issues! Trumponomics will likely be determined by a Trinity of financial elites who work directly with the Donald in Washington D.C. to create economic policy. These three elites who have the ear […]

Kingdom Economics - The profession of finance, money, and economics has entered a new paradigm where our ‘consciousness’ plays a crucial role in trading, lending, investing, buying, and selling. This is now evident, to me, as I watch the behavior of our Central bankers and our traders…including all the cyber money manipulations and creations now occurring (like QE). To understand […]

Kingdom Economics - Today’s WSJ had two articles worth thinking about. See page A8, Friday, February 10, ‘Europe Central Bank Gets Political’ and ‘Record German Trade Gap Risks Riling U.S.’. These two articles reveal that the German trade surplus of $270 billion (2016) marks the highest German surplus since records began after World War II. Think about this […]

Kingdom Economics - One of the most informed traders on our planet when it comes to gold/silver trading is Dave Kranzler IMO. Http://www.goldseek.com reported today that precisely at 9:54 a.m. some 3,927 gold futures contracts (imaginary gold futures trades) were dropped on the COMEX. The trades are viewed as ‘imaginary’ trades as no delivery is involved. The trades are […]

Kingdom Economics - Our monetary unit is now a mere ‘digit’ in the computer screen, Mr. Trump. This ‘digit’ ($) floats and fluctuates against all the other ‘digit’ currencies on our planet continually. Are you aware of this reality, Mr. Trump? In addition to the ‘nature’ of our monetary unit (now a ‘no thing’ unit) we have our […]

Kingdom Economics - Today’s WSJ recorded the view of our Senate Majority Leader which was “Putin is a former KGB agent – he’s a thug”. What a prescient remark for this Senator from Kentucky. Mr. Trump seems to desire to work with Putin but a large group of politicians want more contention and sanctions for this nation called […]

Kingdom Economics -   Today, is a good day to provide my overview of world trends, events, and news. Change is in the ‘air’ and 2017 is likely to lead to major changes within our global political/economic/religious/scientific system. People are starting to think about all the various issues which will be emerging all around our planet. The issues […]

Kingdom Economics - Thomas Jefferson’s philosophy was so prescient (for thinkers) because he recognized the intricacies of human nature better than most. Jefferson recognized that centralization of money and power would eventually lead to enslavement of all Americans. We could universalize this statement of Jefferson today as centralization is now enslaving the entire planet of 7.5 billion citizens (to various […]

Kingdom Economics - My two prior missives reveal that our economic system is totally broken and invalid for solving our global economic problems going forward. The problems can not be solved as the model of Keynesianism has run its course. I have noted many times that Keynesianism is a one-way street where debt grows and grows to unsustainable levels. The […]

Kingdom Economics -   Today, we have many who desire monetary reform and social justice for citizens who are victimized by our current monetary system. The American Monetary Institute speaks for many when it comes to monetary reform. This organization has proposed legislation called the Need Act to reform our money system and to centralize money creation within […]

Kingdom Economics - The Trump Doctrine wants to fix the trade imbalances which America runs with many of its trading counterparts (like China, Mexico, India, etc.). But this is nearly impossible without a return to a settlement mechanism like a gold standard or a gold exchange standard. Today, our fiat (cyber) standard allows the ‘dollar’ to serve as […]

Kingdom Economics - The age-old battle of what should be money continues. Today, the battle is between the banking establishment and the masses of people who trade our markets. The establishment desires to enslave the people with their imaginary ‘cyber’ digits and a cashless society. The people, however, desire a tangible object (like silver/gold)…but the ‘price’ of this […]

Kingdom Economics - After teaching and consulting in the various areas of finance, valuation, and economics, I can assert that real ‘critical’ thinking is lacking for most adult thinkers. Critical thinking involves digging deep into an issue and then asking the hard questions which get glossed over by the general public. Socrates is the philosopher who started the […]

Kingdom Economics - Our money and our trading (now a ‘shadow’ of reality) is an experience which lives within this netherworld called cyberspace (our extended consciousness). Notice the above setting from Plato’s era of ‘forms’ (the Dualism of that period). Today, cyber digits and cyber images (making up our global monetary system) get revealed as equivalent to Plato’s […]
