Kingdom Economics - A trend in motion continues until it ends. Our markets have not corrected for some 9+ years. The upward trend is nearing a reversal IMO. Last week most of our electronic markets declined from 2% to 5%. The Dow was down 2% and most of the China markets were down 4-5%. Concern is ubiquitous that our […]

Kingdom Economics - This Central Banker rules over all the European financial markets! His policies will determine interest rates and asset growth in most of Europe! This Central Banker rules over all Global Markets with a currency called the ‘Dollar’! Some 85% of all trade involves $ transactions and $ debt! Our Central Bankers have been meeting over […]

Kingdom Economics - Sweden hands central bank governor (Stefan) new powers to boost inflation (5 Jan 2016) In an effort to combat deflation, the governor of Sweden’s Riksbank has been given the power to intervene unilaterally and instantly in certain foreign exchange issues. Stefan Ingves, Governor of Sveriges Riksbank, has been granted extended powers to manipulate, regulate, control, […]

Kingdom Economics - Today, the spot price of silver was slammed from a high of $17.32 to $16.38. This slam happened in a matter of minutes. This, to me, does not represent a real supply/demand transaction by live traders. This must have been a slam by a computer algorithm as this type of event happens regularly when the spot […]

Kingdom Economics - Jerome Powell is our Chairman of the Fed and the main spokesperson for our economy. In today’s press conference he revealed his basic philosophy. Mr. Powell views our economy as ‘very strong’ and stable. His goals will be to gradually increase the fed funds rate so that a neutral rate structure emerges. He believes that inflation […]

Kingdom Economics - Loans create deposits when no reserve is required! The United States also has ‘no reserve’ for lower level lending (see reg. D above). Commercial banks via their loan policies create trillions of units ($$$$$) for pumping up our asset markets! No-one knows where the money goes until AFTER a borrower acts! All this magic has […]

Kingdom Economics - America has been following the mindset of Henry for over 40 years! Henry Kissinger has a vision for a New World Order! George Soros has a vision for our planet which he is promoting to select elites! If you watch what happens at the highest levels of government, education, and business you might recognize two […]

Kingdom Economics - Part of our Deep State is what many call the Bilderberg Group of leaders who meet annually to discuss world events and plan strategies for implementing a global one-world system for our planet. Today, June 7, the meeting starts over in Turin, Italy. Their website claims some 131 leaders will attend. Who are a few […]

Kingdom Economics - Let’s review some history on the issues of money for our understanding. Money started out as some object from nature (grain, beads, cattle, deerskins, metals, coins, etc.). I call this OUTER money. The item chosen (by the people) was Outside one’s mind. Over time money evolved into a commodity (such as silver and gold) and […]

Kingdom Economics - Today’s Wall Street Journal had another article on the banking referendum which is scheduled for June 10 in Switzerland. The article is entitled ‘A Radical Swiss Proposal’. In reality this proposal favors Central Bankers and the coming Mark of the Beast financial system. Few, however, are educated on money and banking issues. Let’s review what […]

Kingdom Economics - Direct democracy allows the Swiss people to initiate this referendum on money! Every reader of this blog needs to purchase the June 2 – 3 edition of the Wall Street Journal. Go to page B-8, Finance, and read this article: “A Shocking Challenge to the Banking System”, by Brian Blackstone. The issue is: should commercial banks […]

Kingdom Economics - Ted Butler has done a yeoman’s job in exposing the silver manipulation fraud by JP Morgan. But he may need some help to expose the core group which is behind the electronic computer trading which is doing all this price manipulation. Let’s see if I can help Ted with some additional details (and contacts) on […]

Kingdom Economics - US 10-YR (US10Y:U.S.) + WATCHLIST Real Time Quote | Exchange Yield | 3:43:16 PM EDT 2.839 % -0.005 Yield High Today2.89% Yield Low Today2.82% The 10 year treasury was up to 3.12% earlier in May and is currently 2.83% ( a drop of 29 basis points). This is substantial given that the Fed recently increased the base rate by 0.25%. What […]

Kingdom Economics -   The world is now mostly digital. I can transact business and enter communication with nearly anyone on our planet. I can identify a person specifically and discover the history of this person by using the internet and public digital records. Global digital identity is here now. Over in India, the government of Narenda Modi has […]

Kingdom Economics - Today at the clubhouse we talked about digital markets which go up and up with no tie to material reality. Are you aware of a basic principle of economics. Wealth is not the digits we call money. Wealth is not an increase in digits resulting from an emotional response to words of politicians. Today, the […]

Kingdom Economics - Today’s Wall Street Journal has an article about the philosophy of Pope Francis and his Vatican Financial Information Authority. Our global Pope (so it appears) does not approve of much of that which is happening within today’s Capitalism. He views today’s Capitalism as a system which promotes inequality and injustice. He views money as the […]

Kingdom Economics - The Wall Street Journal reported that inflation in Venezuela is now at 13,000%. What value does a paper currency hold when official authorities merely print new ‘numbers’ on the bills. We now use cyber currencies (mere money symbols) within our computers as our money. What is emerging now on the global financial stage? Watch as […]

Kingdom Economics - I just finished talking to a Swedish economist/sociologist and his message was that change is nearly impossible today due to a public apathy for learning and for critical thinking. His view is that most voters refuse to think critically about our problems and the needed changes as they are satisfied with the status quo. He […]

Kingdom Economics - Today’s digital markets allow our Central Banks or select proxies to continue pumping up stocks via trading strategies. This is giving everyone a feeling of continuing confidence. The Dow is now UP for six consecutive days. It may be seven after tomorrow. Jobless claims are now at 211,000 and people looking for jobs is nearly […]

Kingdom Economics - America chose a monetary system back in 1792 and this system still represents our constitutional money system. The Coinage Act of 1792 established our money and our constitution codified the decision of our Congress. Article I, Section 8 & 10 is still official when it comes to our money and this concept called value. America […]

Kingdom Economics - Currently the Euro-zone has an inflation rate of only 1.3%. This is after some $2.9 trillion of QE stimulus since 2015. Low inflation all over the planet is a riddle to many economists. But what are they missing in their thinking? My sense is that the issue is the IT robotic industry which is replacing […]

Kingdom Economics - Today’s Wall Street Journal, page A17, reported the view of Stanley Druckenmiller on our economy. His opinion was entitled, ‘Where’s the Invisible Hand When You Need It?’ Stanley says, “If I were trying to create a deflationary bust, I would do exactly what the world’s central bankers have been doing the past six years. I […]

Kingdom Economics - NEW DELHI: Some big investors see warning signs ahead for markets but are holding their positions. Egyptian billionaire Naguib Sawiris is taking action: He’s put half of his $5.7 billion net worth into gold. He said in an interview Monday that he believes gold prices will rally further, reaching $1,800 per ounce from just above $1,300 now, while […]

Kingdom Economics - What a crazy system we live with today. Money has become a mere ‘number’ (1) and a banker then ‘types’ this ‘number’ (1) in his computer and the result is official ‘money’ ($1)…also called legal tender. Think about what intelligent human beings are doing to each other here on planet Earth. A private banker can […]

Kingdom Economics - My son and I talked today about the issues of money and how these concepts have changed during my lifetime and his. If we assume that our computer age emerged in the 1980’s and 90’s, then we can use a date like 1990 as the date when computers, electronic money, and cyber objects emerged globally. […]
