February 16, 2019 | Our FAKE Economy (called Capitalism) is being Recognized by Many as an Illusion!

There are a number of articles in today’s Barron’s, the Economist, and today’s Wall Street Journal which touch on our ‘fake’ economy and ‘fake’ Capitalism. The headlines reveal the issues: Today’s Barron’s: Avi Tiomkin says “Again, the Fed Seems Oblivious to a Crisis” Peggy Noonan in the WSJ says “Republicans Need to Save Capitalism” Lance Morrow, […]

February 15, 2019 | The Stock-market is NOT the Economy!

In today’s speech to the Nation, our President expressed his view that our economy is booming even as other nations economies have slowed. His view was that the booming stock-market represents our economy. Is this a valid view of economics?   I think our President has a distorted view of our economy and real wealth creation. […]

February 14, 2019 | Venezuela: A Model of What is Emerging for the World!

  Venezuela is heading for a civil war and/or a military solution with the USA playing the key role. The idea that Venezuela will return to a form of non-violent democracy is not realistic. Democracy is nothing more than Mob Rule with the winning mob subverting the will of 50% or more of the people. […]

February 13, 2019 | Capitalism, Socialism, Communism! Key Differences!

  Today the Green New Deal is making headlines all over the planet. This ‘new deal’ outlined by our Socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, from New York (along with a cadre of supporters) will promote a culture where everyone becomes a slave of the State. The State will administer this Green New Deal for the benefit of everyone. […]

February 8, 2019 | Green New Deal ‘Promises’ Dependency!

Today’s Wall Street Journal had a comprehensive article on the new socialism of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her plan to redo American commerce so that everyone becomes dependent upon government. She has many great ideas for creating a marketplace of ‘green’ commerce but her ideas lead to ‘dependency’ (for the individual). The article in the WSJ explaining […]

February 3, 2019 | The Final Option for ‘Maduro’ is Russia!

It now appears that the Dictator Maduro has few options left for staying in power. The one option which could prolong this affair would be the backing of Russia. Will Putin actually support Maduro with military might? If so, then Maduro could maintain control over Venezuela for a season. New elections would create the eventual leader […]

February 2, 2019 | Manipulated Markets work for a Season!

Could this graph provide some history as to what is now happening within our markets? My sense is that all is not as sound as many pundits suggest! A future moment of ‘now’ will be our teacher IMO! Personally, I never envisioned that our global digital markets could continue this general expansion for this long. […]

February 1, 2019 | Baltic Dry Index: down 47% YTD!

Markets are slowing fast. The Baltic Dry Index (a measure of global trade activity) is now at 668…down some 47.44% for 2019. This index was 1377 on December 17, 2018. This reveals a rapid slowdown in trade mostly from China and Europe (the past 6 weeks). The USA is also starting a slowdown but our stock […]

January 30, 2019 | General Economy points to Recession but Stock Market points to Prosperity! Why?

Consumer confidence is down, the Baltic Dry Index is down some 37%, but home sales are up (exceeding 2006 highs), earnings are moderately up, trade with China is mostly down, Europe is slowing, Venezuela is in a depression, Trump and Pelosi continue their polarization, Central Planners trade our markets daily, and the Dow Index goes up […]

January 29, 2019 | Bankers Fear a Warren Wave! says WSJ!

Today’s Wall Street Journal (WSJ) gives some press to this lady from the USA called Senator Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts. Elizabeth appears to be running for President of the USA in 2020 and her expertise is understanding the Big Banks and their control over our economy. She is correct in her perception that the Big Banks rule […]

January 26, 2019 | More Central Bank ‘Rigging’ to Start Soon!

Our system is now a rigged system where continuing Central Bank action is needed to keep our markets from collapse. Today’s Wall Street Journal expressed the following issue: ‘Fed Weighs Shift in Its Bond Strategy’. Why a shift in policy? It’s because more stimulus is needed to prevent a collapse. Higher interest rates have slowed the […]

January 23, 2019 | Digital Currencies, Electronic Trading, Robots, and Algorithms! Repeat!

After attending four days of financial conferences in Vancouver, I can conclude that these experts and their followers (some 8,000 attendees) have little to no real understanding of how our markets work. This is shameful as education should be the main goal of these conferences. I talked to some of the speakers and to many attendees […]

January 19, 2019 | Can Digital Stocks go UP as the General Economy goes DOWN?

DOW up some 6,355 points since the Trump election. Amazing what confidence traders must have in our Republican President and his policies? The economy is BOOMING in 2019 (so it seems within our virtual cyber screens)! Dow: 18,332.74, +73.14, (+0.40%) on Nov. 8, 2016 S&P 500: 2,139.56, +8.04, (+0.38%) on Nov. 8, 2016 Nasdaq: 5,193.49, +27.32, (+0.53%) on […]

January 13, 2019 | Millennials Dislike Today’s Capitalism! It’s Understandable to Me!

A vocal spokesperson for the Millennials (those under 35) is this new politician (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York) who is likely to become rather popular with the masses of millennials in 2019. A member of the Democratic Party, she has been the U.S. Representative for New York’s 14th congressional district since January 3, 2019.   Ocasio-Cortez is a member of the Democratic […]

January 10, 2019 | U.S. Government Totally Polarized!

Our President can not rule our Nation effectively now that our Congress is totally polarized. The leaders of the Democrats refuse to compromise with the leaders of our Republicans. Mr. Trump walked out of a meeting yesterday due to this polarization. America’s problems will worsen as voter confidence wanes in the coming days, weeks, and months. […]

January 6, 2019 | Cyber Money, Cyber Markets, Cyber-Space!

Our world of economics and money is living in a space that few comprehend. Are you aware that all our finances, stocks, bonds, buying, selling, trading, borrowing, lending, and saving is now living in ‘cyber-space’. What is cyberspace? Let’s define this concept of our consciousness. It’s the most important concept for investors to comprehend! CYBERSPACE: An Imaginary, […]

January 2, 2019 | Is the Stock Market a Measure of Economic Growth?

The past 10 years have created bubble stock markets all over the planet. Many think that this means that our economy has also grown and expanded globally. But is this a valid view of reality? The stock market over in Venezuela has increased some 29% in the past five days and some 98% in the past […]

December 28, 2018 | Overall Liquidity is now Declining Globally! The Impact?

What is happening today is that overall money supply (liquidity) within our global markets is declining gradually. Borrowing is declining. Lending is declining. All this change in monetary policy which our Fed initiated back in 2015 is now starting to affect all our global markets. The big issue is this change in QE policies which started […]

December 26, 2018 | Let’s Understand Digital Money!

Our world money system is now mostly ‘digital’ and money flows within cyberspace from computer to computer as photon digits. Tangible money is being eliminated!   Today at the clubhouse we discussed the various forms of money which America has used since its founding. I was surprised that none of my investor friends seemed to […]

December 25, 2018 | U.S. Recession NOW Here! Why?

As of today, our Dow Index has declined more than 19% since its high in October of 2018. As I write the Dow Index is down some 653.17 points. Our S & P 500 and the NASDAQ are at the 20% level (down) since their high. To me, this means that we are now in a […]

December 24, 2018 | Global Governance To Start After Next World Economic Forum (Jan. 22-25, 2019)! Why?

Will America’s President commit the nation to Global Governance over finance and money? Mr. Trump and his selected elites will attend the WEF in January, 2019! What is on the agenda for our world? I fear the agenda of our ELITES! Global elites desire a digital monetary system for our planet! Where does this lead […]

December 23, 2018 | Stocks Lost $2.05 Trillion in ‘Value’ Last Week! What is ‘Value’?

Our markets are now mostly declining in ‘value’ and this means that digital money disappears from reality. Did you know that our markets trade ‘value’ via digits? Mere photon ‘digits’ are now representing ‘value’ in our marketplace. What is a currency ‘digit’ (which resides within cyberspace)? Is it part of material reality? I don’t think so! […]

December 18, 2018 | News Alert: The Party Is Over! Greenspan!

Tuesday, December 18, 5:53 p.m., EST, Greenspan says the party’s over on Wall Street. Equity prices not likely to go higher. His interview was with Julia Chatterley of CNN.   Greenspan says that if markets go up further than at the end of the run, run for cover! Greenspan says the volatility is […]

December 17, 2018 | Original ‘Purpose’ for Money! Very Significant to Understand!

Money was invented for a purpose. This purpose was to exchange ‘value’ for ‘value’ in a trade situation. I would trade a bushel of wheat for a dozen eggs (for example). This is ‘value’ for ‘value’. But trading items of production is slow and subjective. A better option is to invent some item of ‘value’ […]

December 14, 2018 | News From Around The World! Crime Everywhere!

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 […]
