Kingdom Economics - Today’s Wall Street Journal has a front page article on the criminal stock market over in Saudi Arabia. This market is pumped up after bad news so that select elites can profit from this market. The leader over in Saudi Arabia (Mr. Mohammad bin Salman) is part of the criminal trading activity. These criminals will use […]

Kingdom Economics - Today at the clubhouse some investors wanted me to address the issue of market volatility. Why is the market up some 500 points one day and down a similar number the next? Why this volatility in our digital markets? Let’s talk on this issue for this missive.   Are you aware of this concept called […]

Kingdom Economics - Today’s Wall Street Journal outlined two factors which I would view as a significant trend change. The first is the Chinese selling of some of their real estate holdings in the U.S. This has now happened for two consecutive quarters. This was the first time where more real estate was sold than bought by the […]

Kingdom Economics - 170 police raid the offices of Deutsche Bank in Frankfurt, Germany! Deutsche Bank is typical of all the big Commercial Banks on this planet! The 170 police are investigating employees suspected of helping clients launder money and cover-up a trove of records on issues of the Panamanian papers saga. Police, on Thursday morning, lined up […]

Kingdom Economics - The elites who run our planet with their various digital money operations are now finding that their past policies of easy credit and counterfeit QE must be reversed (at least to a degree). This change in thinking at the TOP will create this coming slowdown and eventually a crash in these digital markets. Change happens ‘at […]

Kingdom Economics - Critical thinking is lacking on issues of economics! Money = an illusion. Today, it enslaves the world. Why? Our leaders promote more debt enslavement and few complain! World debt grows daily and the accumulations never get paid back! Those who understand our financial system recognize that ‘money’ gets created as ‘debt’ and ‘debt’ eventually produces […]

Kingdom Economics - Today, November 16, 2018, shows that the 10 year treasury is down to 3.07%. This is down from 3.24% on November 8. That’s rather substantial. How is the Fed accomplishing this event and why? It appears that the balance sheet of the Fed did not go down this past week. Could it be that our Fed […]

Kingdom Economics - Planet earth communicates via signals and waves of energy. Money and Words flow from computer to computer. Most information is invisible and at the speed of light! Some 7.5 billion people stand (live) on planet earth. We now have some 5.2 billion smart phones for communication and for money flows! The electromagnetic spectrum allows money […]

Kingdom Economics - Cost and benefits change ‘at the margin’! This is key to change! There is one concept in economics which I did not understand for years. Today, I would suggest that this concept is key to understanding what happens within our markets. What is this key concept which few comprehend? It’s called ‘AT THE MARGIN’. What does […]

Kingdom Economics - Gasp: The point of exhaustion, death, or completion.   Today (Thursday) the NIKKEI index is up some 401 points based upon what? This is a sham. The DOW index was up some 545 points yesterday and is up some 71 points as I write…based upon what? Is our economy growing? What I witness is a final ‘gasp’ […]

Kingdom Economics - The Caracas General Stock Index over in Venezuela has crashed again to near zero.Yesterday and today reveals that this market is down some 504,328.12 points. What happened? The index market is closed!   Venezuela Stock Exchange Crashes to Near Zero! IBVC:IND VENEZUELA STOCK MKT INDX 507.32 -504,328.12 -99.90% -99.49% It appears that the computers have […]

Kingdom Economics - Central banks from Switzerland to South Africa are investing a bigger share of their growing foreign-exchange reserves in equities, corporate bonds and other riskier assets. This buoys our markets and rigs price discovery.  Branching out from the traditional central-bank practice of investing primarily in ultrasafe government bonds such as U.S. Treasury’s means taking on […]

Kingdom Economics - I witnessed this situation in my visit to San Francisco last week! Men, women, and some Millennials sleeping on the sidewalks in downtown San Francisco. I witnessed this reality last week while visiting San Francisco.  This ruling elite sees no problems in Venezuela. Mr. Maduro is well-fed and has a group-think administration (and a military) […]

Kingdom Economics - As I write our Dow Index is UP some 390 points. Yesterday it was down some 600 points. Our cyberspace markets go UP and DOWN and everyone thinks this is real economics. What illusion, deception, and hallucination. Today at the clubhouse an investor friend stated that all is well as the market is currently going […]

Kingdom Economics - Today’s Wall Street Journal, front page, reveals the 550 point drop in the Dow Index on Tuesday and then a recovery of over 400 points by the close. Do investors even understand what is occurring? I doubt it! We now live with cyber money and cyberspace markets. This means that the up and down activity […]

Kingdom Economics - Our great founding father, Thomas Jefferson, not only wrote most of the Declaration of Independence (giving Americans real freedom) but he also contributed in so many other areas (astronomy, paleontology, agriculture, art, language, history, economics, religion, and money). Are you aware that Thomas Jefferson’s logic was key to establishing our monetary system? Yes, Jefferson was the […]

Kingdom Economics - Crown Prince Salman (age 32). Shows history of desiring absolute conformity to his political worldview! Mr. Trump called (via phone) the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia and this leader denied any knowledge of the murder (or the details) about this dissident, Mr. Jamal Khashoggi. Let’s think on this situation to discern some realities. What questions […]

Kingdom Economics - The journalist who worked for the Washington Post and other media outlets had a perspective which the official Saudi’s (at the top) disliked (so it appears). It appears from my research that this journalist, Mr. Khashoggi, died on October 2, 2018, from a planned murder by the political regime of Saudi Arabia. His body was dismembered […]

Kingdom Economics - Let’s think about the origin of this idea called ‘money’. Money, technically, does not exist within our greater material universe and there is no such ‘thing’ as money on planet earth. So why do we have ‘money’ and what is it suppose to accomplish? Money is actually ‘invented’ by people in a marketplace as they negotiate […]

Kingdom Economics - Average rates are now up to 5% for first time buyers in my area. Some 45% of Freddie Mac lending goes to first time buyers (according to Wall Street Journal). This is up from 30% in normal times. All this means that real estate will suffer big time in a few months. Applications will decline, home […]

Kingdom Economics - All my investor friends came to the clubhouse today to get my view on the markets. I said that I think that a ‘cycle’ change could be developing. I do not express certainty as I know that our markets are manipulated by our Central Authorities and this could change my perspective down the road. But my […]

Kingdom Economics - A silent crash of some 832 points reveals that our stock markets are now heading down.This signal today was significant and reveals that our markets are now changing from positive to negative. This is likely to continue and we could witness new point drops much more severe in the coming days and weeks. A trend […]

Kingdom Economics - As of today, my sense is that the momentum for the Trump election psychology should provide the Republicans a win on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. The democrats would need to gain confidence from their psychological loss in the Kavanaugh nomination (this soap opera event) and this seems unlikely as of today. As of today, the […]

Kingdom Economics - Prices of gold have fallen rapidly this year and investors have not desired this historical precious metal for their haven. This is valid to a point. The same goes for silver. Both precious metals have fallen to record lows as our authorities have promoted the digital dollar. This digital $ has gotten stronger (in relative terms) […]

Kingdom Economics - Computers, AI, mobile phones, cyber money, and central planners rule over our economy! Agenda 2030 is the goal. We have 12 years until this goal is achieved. Our markets now operate with fake money which gets created from ‘thin air’. Thin air means that the money units derive from the mind of a banker (not […]
