Image result for what are digital stock markets

A digital stock exchange index can go UP or DOWN even while the general goods economy does the opposite. This is happening in Venezuela as I write this missive. This is crucial for everyone to understand. My clubhouse friends now understand!

Digital stock exchanges use virtual monies to measure value! This means that the exchange could go UP and/or DOWN even while the goods economy does the opposite! This is a serious situation for economics and finance!

All stock exchanges are now electronic/digital/virtual. The values do not measure (necessarily) what is really happening within the goods economy. This is a crucial issue for economists, bankers, and all investors.

Our cyber screens reveal what is happening within ‘cyberspace’. Cyberspace is not a physical space…it is an inner space within our consciousness! Very important to understand. We live within our ‘consciousness’ today for all our money issues!

Image result for the goods economy

The goods economy is what we all desire for our consumption needs. This economy may not reflect what is happening within our digital/virtual/cyber economy! A decoupling could happen as it has happened over in Venezuela.

A digital/virtual stock exchange does not reflect (necessarily) what is happening within the general goods economy. Venezuelan stocks are UP some 1686% during 2019 even as the general economy heads for an economic depression! Amazing!

Today at the clubhouse I talked with my investor friends about this concept called ‘decoupling’. This applies to our digital stock markets mostly. Can a digital stock market go UP even while the production of economic goods goes DOWN? This is an important concept as our entire world now lives with digital/cyber/inner/virtual stock markets.

A look at the digital/cyber stock market over in Venezuela reveals that a decoupling can occur between the electronic stock exchange and the real economy (production of goods). In the past month, the Caracas General stock market has gone up some 56% while the general goods economy has crashed. For the year (YTD) the Caracas General is UP 1686% even as the general economy over in Venezuela is in a depression. Why this decoupling?

Decoupling occurs because the goods economy is a material reality whereas the digital/virtual stock market economy is an inner experience (it’s within our consciousness) and this means it can go UP or DOWN independent of the general goods economy. This is a serious situation within economics. If our stock markets do not act to measure real growth in material wealth than these markets are not useful for investors.

Think of our digital/virtual stock markets as living in cyberspace. Cyberspace is a non-physical space which we observe in our computer screens. Cyberspace is virtual and/or inner. This is a serious matter for economists and financial pundits. The PURPOSE of a stock market is to ‘measure’ the general health of an economy. If this does not happen in real-time, then this stock market has no useful function to serve within economics. Think on this!

We now have currencies (money) which are virtual units (inner units of our consciousness). The dollar is a virtual unit of my consciousness. The euro, yen, pound, krona, franc, yuan, shekel, etc. are all digital/virtual currencies. This means they are INNER (within the mind) currencies. Decoupling can happen with these types of currencies. Our economic educators and our bankster administrators need to become AWARE of this reality. It’s happening now! Think on this issue!

Our financial institutions are now mostly digital/virtual institutions. The monies being created and circulated are virtual/inner monies. This allows a digital stock market to decouple from our goods economy. It’s happening over in Venezuela as I write. It could happen in other nations as digital markets go UP while the goods economy goes DOWN (or vice versa). Decoupling is now a real situation which can affect all these digital/virtual markets.

Our economic thinkers need to think about the ‘nature’ of these digital/virtual currencies. They are not OUTER (material) currencies. They are INNER currencies (units of my/your consciousness). This is crucial to understand given what our banksters have created for our markets. Measurement of ‘value’ is now subjective and ephemeral. The whole purpose of money was to serve as a ‘measure’ of VALUE. This is impossible with these digital/virtual currencies.

We need to educate all the economists, financial administrators, investment pundits, and the media to this new reality. A ‘decoupling’ of value can occur and its happening over in Venezuela as I write. The Caracas General stock exchange no longer is a valid tool for measuring the Venezuelan economy. This same situation could happen in any other national economy. It could even happen in the USA economy (down the road). This is a serious item for every investor to comprehend.

A goods economy could decline even while the digital/virtual value of a stock market increases. The opposite could also occur. The goods economy could grow even as the digital/virtual stock exchanges index goes DOWN. Our stock exchanges do not (necessarily) represent a real ‘measurement’ of what is happening in real-time with our goods economy. Please get this message to every thinker who desires to understand today’s reality.

We now live with digital markets for investing, money creation (QE), money lending, and most every money transaction which uses the computer. Historical monies are being eliminated everywhere. Paper notes, metal coins, gold, and silver are not being used to measure our wealth creation. These historical monies are mostly be replaced with digital/virtual monies. Soon the entire planet will be wired for computer money and this means virtual money.

Virtual reality in economics is replacing historical material reality. INNER money is replacing OUTER money. The trend is to create an INNER money system for the entire planet. It’s called the ‘Mark of the Beast’ economy. Virtual symbols and numbers will replace all historical physical monies. This is happening in all nations and Venezuela is one example of what happens with this type of change.

The general goods economy can DECOUPLE from the virtual/digital economy. As I write the Caracas General stock exchange index (a virtual/digital) exchange is UP 72% (in three months) even while the general goods economy has crashed. This is reflective of what could happen in ANY other country going forward. Get this message to thinkers who can discern what is actually happening in our global economies. It’s a CRUCIAL message for those who desire to comprehend what is happening!

A digital/electronic stock exchange does not (necessarily) ‘measure’ the wealth within an economy!

Image result for the Venezuela economy is in a depression

The Venezuelan economy is in a depression and this leader has no idea what is happening! Why? Do our banksters understand this phenomena called decoupling?

Image result for the Venezuela economy is in a depression as goods disappear

In Venezuela they weigh banknotes. Does this ‘measure’ value? What has happened to this Venezuelan currency called the Bolivar? Is a digital Bolivar any better than the paper note? Why this decoupling of money from the goods economy?

Image result for the Venezuela economy is goods economy

Consumer goods disappear even as the Caracas General Stock Exchange goes Up and UP! What is happening? It’s called ‘decoupling’ of goods from currency value!

Image result for the dollar in the computer screen

Today’s money is virtual (inner). It lives within our consciousness. This makes decoupling possible for all stock exchanges which are digital/virtual! Cyberspace is really an extension of our consciousness! Pass this missive on to thinkers!
