Kingdom Economics - I am attending the Metals Forum in Vancouver along with a crowd of some 2500 investors. This is a record crowd for this Metals Forum. Last year the crowd was much less and the tone was much more uncertain. Today, the speakers all sense that our Fed will create whatever liquidity is needed to prolong […]

Kingdom Economics - Today, at the clubhouse we talked about why our digital money system is unstable and ephemeral. The problem is that digital money vanishes when the power ceases to function. Turn off the electrical power in any community and digital money vanishes. Why is this so? Digital money ($$$$$) does not technically exist as a ‘thing’ […]

Kingdom Economics - Today, one of my investor friends asked me if the markets could continue UPWARD in 2020? My response was that I have no idea as these markets are not tied to material production. I said that the Dow Index was up some 24% in 2019, the S & P 500 was up some 29%, and the […]

Kingdom Economics - Big events are likely in 2020. The eleven year record of up financial markets is likely to change in 2020. I am now forecasting a recession in early 2020. The evidence is becoming clear. What leading indices point to this recession: 1. The Baltic Dry Index is a leading indicator of economic change. This index has been […]

Kingdom Economics - ‘Value’ and ‘Price’ is now an issue to consider. The difference is HUGE! What is the ‘market value’ of my/your home? Is ‘value’ inherent within the bricks and mortar of a property? Is ‘value’ objective or subjective?  Let’s explore the difference between PRICE and VALUE for this missive. I watch the ‘prices’ of key commodities […]

Kingdom Economics - Today, our prices are ‘virtual’ (inner units of consciousness) and this means that the price of gold and silver could go to ZERO. The metals, however, would continue to EXIST! Algorithms could drive any price to zero if our authorities desired this result. It’s now possible as real human beings no longer SET our prices. […]

Kingdom Economics - America trades their goods and services using a virtual dollar ($). Imports and exports are priced in our virtual dollar ($). But what is ‘value’ given that we now trade with a virtual dollar ($). There is no reference point for ‘value’ given that our dollar is ‘valueless’ (has no definition in terms of a ‘thing’). […]

Kingdom Economics - Soon the digits in your investment accounts will vanish and disappear.These DIGITS do not exist (they are metaphysical). Our Fed is now ‘TYPING’ BILLIONS (mere cardinal numbers) into their SOMA account for the purchase of government treasuries to DELAY reality (the coming recession). It’s called the REPO liquidation market scheme. Our banks are ‘illiquid’ and […]

Kingdom Economics - After listening to Chairman Powell of the U.S. Federal Reserve for over 90 minutes today, I must conclude that he has no idea what he is talking about. I also must admit that any statements about the future are very uncertain. None of us have any certainty about future events. I would put myself in this […]

Kingdom Economics - The end of 2019 is soon here. But prior to the end there are three huge big bang events to happen. What are they? 1. The Brexit vote on December 12 (next Thursday). 2. The House vote to Impeach Donald J. Trump (likely to happen in December). 3. The likely indictment of Benjamin Netanyahu for […]

Kingdom Economics - The sentiment for any constitutional money or historical money must be suppressed by our official policymakers as it’s important that our markets transition to a virtual/digital system. The last thing that our official policymakers want is a lack of confidence in the virtual monetary system which is being created for the world. The continuing growth within […]

Kingdom Economics - The word ‘dollar’ does not have a single definition. The word has been defined differently since its inception after 1792. The original dollar was ‘defined’ as 371.25 grains of pure silver. Since this original definition the dollar has changed and today we live with a dollar which has NO definition (it’s virtual). Let’s review the three […]

Kingdom Economics - Our financial world is now controlled by select central planners who can use our ‘virtual’ monetary system to further their goals and plans. Our markets are now interconnected, global, virtual, and centrally administered. Personally, I follow seven key central planning institutions which basically determine what happens within our global markets. Capitalism has evolved into this central […]

Kingdom Economics - Let’s look at some evidence from our current stock markets. Trumponomics has created record stock markets (at least this is the mantra)! Here are some key parameters showing the evidence: 1. The DOW Index is up some 20.3% year-to-date. We should/could witness 25% YTD by year end (given current trends). 2. The NASDAQ is up some 30.1% year-to-date. […]

Kingdom Economics - Since 2008 our financial markets have changed materially. Our markets have become computerized and our money has become electronic and virtual. Any money which gets created within cyberspace and circulates within cyberspace is a ‘virtual’ monetary unit. Cyberspace is this artificial space which emerges from the connection of computers into a network. Select computer software creates […]

Kingdom Economics - Yesterday, my broker deleted a 35 cent stock of mine as there was a 15:1 consolidation action being done. The consolidation was done to increase the stock price and reduce the number of shares in the marketplace. I fully approve of this decision by my stock administrators (the Board of Directors). The delete removed the stock […]

Kingdom Economics - Since 2008 our central banks have operated via a computer (electronic) system for creating our official money (currencies). Money today is mostly ‘virtual’ (90%) as mere cardinal numbers act as our official legal tender. The American dollar is now a virtual unit (a number). It emerges from pressing a computer key which types numbers into a computer account. […]

Kingdom Economics - VIRTUAL (definition) COMPUTING not physically existing as such but made by software to appear to do so. carried out, accessed, or stored by means of a computer, especially over a network. I talk to my investor friends at the clubhouse here in Arizona (daily) to get their perceptions about our economy and emerging trends. One thing […]

Kingdom Economics - The evidence in our marketplace reveals that the American Empire of Might makes Right is gradually collapsing as the world becomes interconnected and global. Our digital age has revealed the flaws within the American system of government and her philosophy…and the world does not want this system (called American Democracy) going forward. America is now polarized […]

Kingdom Economics - Today’s virtual money is invisible and non-observable! It’s FAKE! The story of money has been my passion for the past 50+ years. I have studied this concept and also taught this concept and its history to thousands of students. I now would like to propose that we ‘eliminate’ all money from our planet. This is […]

Kingdom Economics - Today, at the clubhouse I talked with a couple of my retired friends on the issue of ‘what could bring our digital economy down’. Some now feel that our economy is so strong that nothing can bring it down. Consumer spending is strong, the dollar is strong, interest rates are low, employment is growing. Political events […]

Kingdom Economics - Can anyone ‘see’ a digital dollar? What is a digital dollar? Today, at the clubhouse I talked with three retired business executives on the history of money and the evolution which we now witness within our digital economy. These retired individuals (one an economist) follow the money markets daily (as I) and they revealed to me […]

Kingdom Economics - Are you aware that the electronic dollar (also called the ‘digital’ dollar, cyber dollar, and virtual dollar) has not been approved by our Congress or our Courts as official legal tender. This is why I state that our banking system is now criminal and illegal (especially the Fed). The officials within our banking system are creating […]

Kingdom Economics - Our criminal Federal Reserve has created (electronically) $253 billion for asset purchases to their balance sheet. All this since September 4, 2019. The Fed balance sheet is now over $4 trillion. This liquidity could expand lending by a factor of 10. Is any of this morally or constitutionally valid? Does our Constitution allow our Fed to […]

Kingdom Economics - Does our media and our pundits understand that our markets are now electronic? There is no ‘tie’ (of our money) to material reality (our general economy)! Market cycles used to create corrections but today our markets do not correct. The current bull market is over 126 months (with no correction). Why? Today, our electronic stock […]
