Kingdom Economics - It now appears that our Central Bank (called the Fed) will flood the markets with new liquidity and simultaneously take ownership of most debt assets as virtual dollars flood the markets. Let’s think about our situation at this moment. Debt is so huge that America is totally bankrupt from debt which can not be repaid. Consumers […]

Kingdom Economics - I have been writing about our ‘fake’ economy for years. We are now at the end game for our Keynesian economy of debt. This economy started after the last Great Depression (1934) and it ended (effectively) today (2020). Debt is at a level which is beyond repayment. We all know it. The numbers reflect our economic […]

Kingdom Economics - The American economy is now in free-fall as the Covid-19 financial system has caused a Recession. This free-fall situation is unlikely to change as America is essentially bankrupt. Two hundred and and forty-four years of Capitalism is now over. The numbers SPEAK. Check out the numbers here: http://www.usdebtclock.org What is happening in real-time to our economy: […]

Kingdom Economics - The financial environment is now ideal for our central planners to construct a global Reset of our monetary system. I have been expecting this event for years. I now think that sometime this year (2020) would be logical for our central planners to initiate this global event called the Mark of the Beast. It will not […]

Kingdom Economics - Today, at the clubhouse my investor friends and I talked about the counterfeiting operations of our Fed (called QE) and also the issues of what is ‘official legal tender’ for monetary transactions (based upon prior Congressional legislation). Is a virtual dollar equivalent or identical to a paper or coin dollar? Ans. NO. Has our Congress reviewed […]

Kingdom Economics -   Our criminal Fed and most Keynesian economists view money symbols ($$$$$) as our wealth. Our Fed pumps in $trillions of new counterfeit symbols to buy assets. Is any of this activity helping our economy longer-term? Is any of this activity in accordance with our justice/legal/constitutional principles? I don’t think so! Pumping in trillions of ‘imaginary’ […]

Kingdom Economics - Our markets are slowing to a crawl. The big issue is the ‘velocity’ of money. What is velocity of money? I spend a dollar and the recipient spends my dollar. The game continues as a dollar gets spent from spender to recipient. What is now happening in spades is that the ‘velocity’ of money is declining […]

Kingdom Economics - Some 10 trillion of value has been wiped out from our bubble stock markets here in the USA these past two weeks. Globally, the number is close to $15 trillion. Where did the money (value) go? Did it vanish and disappear? I think so. The trillions in value are mere mental abstractions (virtual units of consciousness). […]

Kingdom Economics -     The markets are now creating mass deflation and this will result in the need for a global reset of all our currencies. Digital chaos is happening as I write with oil prices crashing and stock markets crashing. There is no solution to this mess without a global RESET. The Mark of the Beast financial […]

Kingdom Economics - The signs seem clear that a serious global recession is around the corner. I can document the signs as they have multiplied in the last few days. Let’s enumerate a few: 1. The 10 year treasury bond has crashed to 0.748 (as I write). Why? Slowing economy! 2. Europe planning more QE and additional negative interest rates. Why? […]

Kingdom Economics - Many of my investor friends at the club house view the U.S. dollar as better than gold. They say that gold offers no growth and pays no interest rate. So few of my investor friends have invested any of their savings in gold. Is this a wise decision for the coming years? I would suggest, NO. […]

Kingdom Economics - As I write, the central banks are attempting to reignite the fading BULL market in stocks. Will the lower interest rates solve the dilemma? Can our Fed create new confidence among investors and the public? My sense is NO! The cycle has now changed from a BULL market to a BEAR market. The temporary upward fling […]

Kingdom Economics - Trump says the Fed must lower interest rates and help to lead the world in expanding liquidity for our markets! Our Fed stepped in and pumped-up the stock markets today (Monday). I am not surprised. This action is meant to delay the next crash. Will it? My sense is that the next phase will develop […]

Kingdom Economics - Trump calls the current sell-off a correction and says the Federal Reserve is CRAZY! The correction to our bubble stock markets has started. Some 3,500 points ($3.5 trillion in value) vanished into thin-air this week. The big question now is that this is only the beginning of the sell-off. Phase II and then phase III […]

Kingdom Economics - Our imaginary cyber markets have declined some 1900 points over two days (Dow Index). This is not surprising and I would suggest that the faster these markets go to ZERO…the better. We are dealing with pure illusion within the mind’s of investors. These markets are not real. Mere cyber digits are what go UP and then […]

Kingdom Economics -   Today’s Wall Street Journal had a couple articles on digital currencies which point to change that is coming soon. Some 11 Central Banks already are gearing up for a digital currency. Some names are: Bahamas, Barbados, China, France, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, Thailand, Turkey, Uruguay, United Arab Emirates, and India. My sense is that this […]

Kingdom Economics - China now has some 750 million under surveillance and the Capital, Beijing is under lock-down. This is all due to this virus called coronavirus (covid-19). This video provides a general overview of the situation. Beijing (a population of 21.54 million) is now a ghost town and prices are skyrocketing. See the video here: The situation […]

Kingdom Economics - Let’s expand our understanding of ‘virtual’ money and why this system of money creation is fraudulent and corrupt. Where is our virtual dollar created is one question that few seem to comprehend. Let’s think of this location in New York City called our Fed. The Fed building is located at 33 Liberty Street and on […]

Kingdom Economics -   Today, we have some 8 – 10 global currencies which trade as ‘hard’ currencies and some 170 ‘soft’ currencies which are recognized by the United Nations but do not qualify as currencies which can be traded freely for all goods and services. Then we also have some 4,000 cryptocurrencies which can be used for […]

Kingdom Economics - Today’s Wall Street Journal has a couple of articles on the nomination of Judy Shelton to the Fed Board. It appears that the morons on the Senate Banking Committee and a few additional monetary elites do not approve of her thinking on economic/monetary issues. This is likely due to her prior publications on issues of […]

Kingdom Economics -   My investor friends at the clubhouse do not view this coronavirus as relevant for Americans. The majority think that this virus will not affect our growing economy (under the Trump administration). Job growth and stock market growth will not be affected is their view. Is this valid? My sense is that it is not […]

February 7th, 2020 | Four Macro Indices To Watch!

Kingdom Economics - Where is the global economy going in 2020? Are we heading for more growth and expansion? There are four indices which I watch to give me guidance on this issue. Let’s briefly cover the four indices and think about what they mean: 1. The Baltic Dry Index: this index is now at 431 and the trend […]

Kingdom Economics - I now envision a significant slowing in our world economy for 2020. The Baltic Dry Index is now at 525 and this indicates a recession coming in 2020. This index is a leading indicator of commerce for our world. The other significant factor is this recent pathogen called the Coronavirus. Fear is entering our marketplace […]

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’ […]
