James Corbett is an editorial writer for The International Forecaster, the bi-weekly e-newsletter created by the late Bob Chapman.

The International Forecaster - Do humans have free will? That question has puzzled philosophers for millennia and has generated fierce debates. Perhaps the only thing more contentious than the question are the implications of its answer. If man has no free will, then how can there be moral responsibility? But don’t worry, dear frazzled philosophers! You can now rest […]

The International Forecaster - What comes to your mind when you hear the words “demographic crunch”? If you’re like much of the general public, having been steeped their whole lives in propaganda pimping the debunked notion of an “overpopulation crisis,” you probably won’t even know what the term “demographic crunch” means. But you, dear reader, are not part of the general […]

March 10th, 2019 | False Flags Over Kashmir

The International Forecaster - n response to a suicide bombing in Kashmir that killed 40 Indian paramilitaries last month, the Indian Air Force struck targets in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province. I imagine that many readers around the world today would read that sentence the way that 105 years ago they would have read the sentence: “A Bosnian separatist shot […]

The International Forecaster - Are you sick of Smollett? Fed up with fake news? Tired of tawdry tabloid trash disguised as “news”? Well, you’ve come to the right place! Here’s a number of interesting stories from around the world that you might have missed if you’re only following the dinosaur media newsfeed. The Trump-Kim summit has ended with a […]

The International Forecaster - As a well-known adage holds: “To the victor go the spoils.” But it might well add: “And the losers go to the gallows.” This is the logic of victor’s justice. It is the logic of the Treaty of Versailles, which demanded un-payable reparations from the vanquished German nation. It is the logic of the Tokyo […]

The International Forecaster - You may have seen “Students Love Green New Deal… Until Hearing What’s In It” by now, but if not you probably get the gist just from the title. Yes, it’s one of those “man on the street” interview videos where random college students are asked whether they support new progressive superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (“AOC” to […]

The International Forecaster - So it seems that something in Trump’s State of the Union speech has gotten the MAGA crowd all excited. Was it this? “My administration has acted decisively to confront the world’s leading state sponsor of terror: the radical regime in Iran. It is a radical regime. They do bad, bad things.” Or this? “Two weeks […]

February 2nd, 2019 | Fake News: Economics Edition

The International Forecaster - Just when you thought “fake news” was only about those dastardly Russians hiding under every bed, Japan comes out and admits that 40% of its economic data is bogus. That’s right, a report from Japan’s Internal Affairs Ministry this week reveals that 22 of the 56 key economic statistics reported by the government are faulty and “that irregularities […]

The International Forecaster - Chinese President-for-Life Xi Jinping is warning that the glorious Communist Party of China (CPC) “is facing long-term and complex tests in terms of maintaining long-term rule, reform and opening-up, a market-driven economy, and within the external environment.” Or at least that’s how BilderBloomBerg is putting it. Rothschild Reuters, for its part, is characterizing Xi’s latest pronouncement as a warning about […]

The International Forecaster - Readers of this column will know all about the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) by now. The CFR’s influence in setting Washington’s foreign policy agenda was once derided as “conspiracy theory.” But, as is often the case, that “conspiracy theory” is now a simple truism that is openly joked about by the conspirators themselves. (A Chatham House video about […]

The International Forecaster - It’s no secret that governments hate the free market. At its base, every single government tax, license, regulation and restriction is an implicit rebuke of the idea that humans should be able to interact freely with those around them. This is old news to my long-term readers, but it bears repeating because many have been […]

The International Forecaster - Sick of the same old, same old boring list of predictable, safe New Year’s predictions that are so vague they can’t possibly come true? (Weaponized narratives, indeed!). Yeah. So am I. So in the spirit of spicing things up for this post-holiday hangover season, let’s kick the year off with a bunch of outrageous predictions […]

HoweStreet.com Radio - Japan Scandals, China looking to take over power vacuum left by US

The International Forecaster - So you know all about China’s social credit system by now, right? You know, the one that I’ve been talking about for years? The one that we had a sneak preview of 8 years ago in “You Are Being Gamed?” The one that’s being trial ballooned at home via Carrot Rewards and other “motivational” point systems? Yes, I dare say you […]

December 8th, 2018 | The People vs. Paris

The International Forecaster - “Let them eat carbon!” said French President Emmanuel Macron this week, offering his peasants a six-month reprieve on their coming carbon sin tax. And, kicking his feet up on his desk at the Élysée Palace, he breathed a sigh of relief. He had bought himself some time to figure out how to deal with the […]

HoweStreet.com Radio - New China-India-Russia Military Alliance Forming

November 19th, 2017 | When Robots Rule the Markets

The International Forecaster - The Corbett Report community held a vigorous discussion on the future of Artificial Intelligence this past summer, and the results are in: No one understands the question (myself included). Now, to be fair, I didn’t do a very good of framing the debate so, as is typical with this particular topic, it quickly became the standard AI […]

The International Forecaster - Saudi Arabia, May 2017. A private yacht sails into the port at Jeddah under heavy guard. The yacht’s identity is hidden even from the port authorities. Only a handful of people are allowed near it. They deliver several boxes and the yacht sails away. The boxes contained cash. $1 billion cash. A “gift” from the […]

HoweStreet.com Radio - China deal that could end the US Petro Dollar relationship with Saudi Arabia

The International Forecaster - OK, the dust has settled on the “release” of the JFK files last week, and here’s what we know so far: As expected, the release is not a full release by any stretch of the imagination, despite Trump’s tweets to the contrary. As I pointed out in the most recent edition of New World Next Week, if Trump had […]

The International Forecaster - Hang on to your hats, folks. I know you’re going to have a hard time believing this one. Are you ready? (You might need to sit down for this). OK, brace yourself: the US Senate just made it harder for Americans to sue banks. I know, I know. I can hardly believe it either. But […]
