June 15, 2017 | The Only Hope for Real Change is our Economy!

Donald B. Swenson: Born January 24, 1943, Roseau, Minnesota. Graduated H.S. 1961, Moorhead High, Minnesota. Graduated College 1968, Moorhead State University, Minnesota. Designated member of Appraisal Institute (MAI), 1974. Employed with Western Life Insurance Company, 1968 – 71; Iowa Securities Company, 1971 – 73; American Appraisal Company, 1974 – 81. Part-time teacher/valuation consultant/bartender, 1979 – 2008 (taught workshops at Waukesha County Technical Institute, Wi. and Madison Area Technical College, Wi.). Retired 2008 (part time teacher/blogger), AZ. Self educated economist/philosopher/theologian:


What I have discovered is that most people (95% or more) could care less about meaningful change as long as ‘their’ personal economy is positive. The economic conditions of each person (largely) determines their perspective on issues. Human nature is selfish and personal and meaningful change only happens when the general economy suffers significantly. When I bring up issues like the recent killing in D.C. where a lone 66-year-old Democrat shot at select Republicans with the intent of killing these politicians, I discern that America has some DEEP seated problems which are not being addressed. But who seems to discern any of this?

But when I bring this issue or any problem issue to the attention of seniors at my venue (here in Arizona) they show no interest in focusing on the underlying problems. Seniors at my venue are mostly well-heeled seniors who have an ample supply of digital money within their personal accounts. If the stock market is generally going UP, these well-heeled seniors could care less about discussing real problems within our economy and/or our political system. Today, I received a call from the RNC (Republican National Committee) and they wanted to ask about Trump’s policy of Making America Great Again.

I expressed my view on the questions and then the caller wanted funds for the RNC. His concern was money mostly so he could advertise Trump’s Make America Great program. The problems were not the most important issue to this caller but receiving money for further advertising was important. All this reveals the human nature of most people. It’s all about money and personal economic well-being. Discussing the underlying issues which are corrupting our system and forcing lone wolf’s to choose negative actions to protest these core underlying problems is not of concern to most. Selfish human nature reveals itself to those who discern reality via human emotions. I discern this daily at my venue!

If our country or the World is to experience any Meaningful Change then the general global economy would need to deteriorate significantly. Until that happens (which is likely at some point) I don’t think that people (in general) will have any INTEREST in discussing our core underlying problems. When I bring up the issue of DEBT I mostly get shrugs of ‘so what’. Debt can continue forever say many. When I bring up the issue of Food Stamps (EBT cards) many claim this is a good solution for avoiding soup lines. When I bring up the corrupt Federal Reserve system and Central Banking control many see this as good as the economy has benefited. Why change the status quo as it is working!

Yes, the general economy is core to change and until a new cycle of collapse occurs (such as in Venezuela) I don’t think human nature (Americans or foreigners) will desire to talk seriously about our problems. This, to me, is shameful as it reveals the self-centeredness of people and their general lack of concern…as long as THEIR personal economy is positive. But take away their ‘security blanket’ (their digits within their savings accounts) and the response will change immediately. Now the issues will be important and the underlying ‘problems’ will become meaningful. What a lesson in understanding human nature I have received in recent years. The economy is ‘central’ to most emotions!

The economy is central to how people respond to issues and problems. Mass killings could occur and the vast majority would ignore the reasons for this behavior. Blame the perpetrator without digging deeper into the reasons WHY. All behavior results from a ‘reason’. The killer in D.C. had his reasons for his behavior. He is now dead so we will not discover these underlying reasons. But a 66-year-old senior committed this crime and I bet there are millions more with similar personalities waiting to explode. Human nature acts from underlying ‘reasons’. And the ECONOMY is often at the core of most issues. Everyone ignores problems when the ECONOMY is strong and positive. But when a meaningful downturn develops watch out for a real change in human emotions and tone.

Today, our economy is viewed as strong and positive (so say the media and the establishment). Underlying problems are IGNORED by most Americans and foreigners as a result. This is unfortunate as these underlying problems are continually getting much more dire. The entire economic system could become another Venezuela at some point soon. In Venezuela the stock market is booming but the people are suffering and the system is collapsing. Yet the elites in charge mostly ignore all this as they themselves are the well-heeled. Just kill the complainers and protesters so the well-heeled can continue with their crimes. That seems to be the mantra of our elite. Shame on the informed and the pundits who continue to promote more corruption with their support of this mantra!

Are events going to change so as to bring this global Ponzi financial system down? I do sense that this is developing gradually and relentlessly. But I also discern that our corrupt Central Bank elites will try to prevent this from happening to the best of their ability. Bubble markets will continue and mass killings by select individuals who are suffering from this corrupted system will continue. Polarization and division is occurring gradually and relentlessly IMO. The SYSTEM is the problem and few comprehend this issue. Few desire to comprehend this issue. We will see no meaningful CHANGE until the economy turns down significantly. Watch and wait is all we can do for now! That is my point-of-view! Think for yourself! I am:

Some images of our economy for you to consider:

This lady desires no change in how the system operates! Why?

The Fed’s balance sheet was key to pumping up liquidity within the SYSTEM and creating our bubble markets. Money was created by merely typing ‘numbers’ into the computer screen…and then using this increase to manipulate interest rates, loan behavior, and equity prices! Is this sound policy? Not in my view!

Image result for fed's balance sheet to be reduced over time

The Fed has created our Bubble Markets and now desires that this be maintained indefinitely. Digital money allows this corruption to occur indefinitely. Are you aware that digital money derives from our Central Bankers ‘imagination’ and that this can continue indefinitely? Who can stop these elites who operate behind closed doors? Think of our Central Banks as acting to pump up our electronic markets indefinitely!

Central Banks have increased liquidity to the tune of over $21 trillion since 2008. This does not include member bank loans and purchases. This will likely continue until it ends! Who can bring this process to an END?


The major Central Banks continue to support all our index markets with their computer trading operations! Think: Central Banks now rule over all our global financial markets and this, to me, is Central Planning (Communism in the making)!

These are our major Central Bank manipulators (Yellen, Drahgi, Kuroda, and Carney)! Add China, India, Switzerland, Sweden, and a few others!

These are prior Central Bankers who still operate ‘behind the scenes’ to influence policy! The Bank for International Settlements is at the core of Central Planning!

Some of the Deep State operatives who could care less about the common man’s situation! Their self-interest is to promote banking, corporate welfare, and the Agenda 2030 program which was officially implemented as of January 1, 2016!

Keynesian economics is what we call our System today! But would Keynes approve of today’s Ponzi System? He died in 1946! I don’t think so!

Mr. Jim Rogers says the above and much more! He is expecting a major crash in 2017 or early 2018. But who is listening to him?

Can this leader change anything of significance? The System has evolved into its current corrupt status over some 88 years (since 1929)!

Image result for the economic situation in Venezuela

The economic situation in Venezuela! Yet the stock market continues UP and UP!

Image result for the economic System is the problem

Yes, the SYSTEM is now so corrupt that it is our PROBLEM! Who understands and who desires to UNDERSTAND? Think: the SYSTEM!
