As I watch our central banks manipulate our electronic markets in real-time, I must ask the question: Do the insiders (trading our markets) understand what they are doing? Do they discern that our money is ‘inner’ and ‘subjective’? Why do we now have ‘imaginary’ money?

 

Do our manipulators recognize that ‘inner’ money units (mere digits in the computer screen) can not grow the real economy (longer-term). We could have manufacturing declining as our electronic digits (the stock indices) go up and up. We could have the real estate sector declining as our inner digits (called money) go up and up (within our virtual/electronic markets).

 

Our real economy is made up of the material goods which our economy produces. Goods include food, clothing, shelter, and transportation. Meanwhile our electronic (digit) markets are divorced from this real economy. These ‘inner’ numbers are not units of matter/energy. All these digits live in ‘cyberspace’. What is cyberspace?

 

Cyberspace is a simulated space which is ‘virtual’ in nature. Our computer digits (called money) reside in this virtual environment (not in real observed reality). Our central planners play with fake/phony/imaginary money (mere abstract mental numbers) to manipulate our markets (24/7). Is this going to grow our economy longer-term?

 

What has happened over in Venezuela with their real economy? What has their electronic market been doing while their real economy tanks? The past two years show that the real economy of Venezuela has tanked some 50% while the electronic (digit) economy has mostly gone up and up. Year to date it is up some 743% (as I write).

 

What we need to understand is that our MONEY is ‘imaginary’ and lives within our consciousness. Our money does not produce the goods which make up our real economy. Our money is fake/phony/imaginary. A mere tool. Are you aware? Are our central planners aware of what they are doing to our markets (longer-term)?

 

At some point the real economy (in the West) could start to decline even while the electronic (digit) markets go up and up. As I write the Dow Index is up over 1300 points in five trading days. The Dow is now 26,118 as I write. It could go to a record this week while our REAL economy continues to tank. Are more goods being produced for consumers (as I write)?

 

Who is aware of what is happening in real-time with these virtual/digital/electronic markets? They can be manipulated (behind closed doors) continually by sources like our Exchange Stabilization Fund and our Plunge Protection Team. All it takes is a high speed computer, trading digits, and algorithms to do the trading. We live with a computer driven market today. What a system we live with (which few comprehend)!

 

My sense is that my investor friends do not understand any of this reality. They ASSUME that money is physical (even though it isn’t) and they assume that our markets are healthy and growing (even as they reveal the opposite). Our media likes to portray a positive message about economic reality to keep the collapse from arriving. But can these sources continue the charade forever?

 

For today, all seems positive and stable. But my sense is that underlying this sentiment of the many are serious issues with our real economy. Watch as our central planners (these bankers in the Eccles building) change their policies in the coming weeks. This is happening behind closed doors in all our central bank facilities. Will QE and lower interest rates emerge in a few weeks?

 

We live under CENTRAL PLANNING today. The planners are policy-makers who create our digit money from their THINKING. This money is IMAGINARY and fake but the central planners may not discern this reality. In their MIND all is under their CONTROL. They may pump up these digit markets for some time. All is computer driven. Watch and see what happens! Have a good day.
