August 20, 2019 | Recession Evidence, Trump, Greenland, Gold!

My Wall Street Journal is saying that RV sales are down some 20% and Nordstrom sales are down some 45%.  Trump changes the focus to Greenland (interesting). These items point to a coming RECESSION IMO. This coming recession could have already started. We should know more in the next few weeks. My sense is that […]

August 18, 2019 | What Do the Demonstrators in Hong Kong Want?

After watching the demonstrations over in Hong Kong for the past two weeks my question is ‘what do these demonstrators really want’? I think I know! The word is ‘Freedom’. The demonstrators desire continuing freedom from a dictatorial hierarchy in the mainland who desire to control their behavior. It is natural for the young in Hong […]

August 16, 2019 | Sentiment Changing and This Means Trouble!

Consumer sentiment is down from prior highs, rental housing is down from prior highs, China is slowing, Europe is slowing, Argentina is crashing, Venezuela is in a depression, Iran/Russia/Turkey are suffering from U.S. sanctions. The markets are gradually imploding as events continue to play out globally. The moral climate is deteriorating with this Epstein saga. I […]

August 15, 2019 | MMT (modern monetary theory) Misunderstood IMO!

Today’s article in the Wall Street Journal entitled “Modern Monetary Theory Is Ancient” by Jason De Sena Trennart reviews the theory as follows: 1. The government of the USA has a monopoly power over the dollar. Recognize this favorable factor. 2. Governments do not need to tax and then borrow. Governments should spend first to guarantee full […]

August 14, 2019 | Buenos Aires Stock Exchange (Merval) Down 29%! What Else?

The digital stock exchange over in Argentina is crashing and their currency is declining.The Peso may soon go into oblivion like the Venezuelan Bolivar. This currency could set the tone for a number of weaker currencies as investors seek safe havens and get out of emerging market assets. I sense that a correction in all […]

August 13, 2019 | Desperate Markets Manipulated Up 500 points at Opening!

A mere word from our leader, Mr. Trump, on the issue of tariffs creates huge cyber market manipulations (both up and down). Silver was slammed today and our cyber stock markets were pumped UP (as I write). It all happens at the New York Fed and traders on the 8th and 9th floors in this building. […]

August 12, 2019 | Money, Money, Money – Where Is It?

 Is this concept called ‘money’ an illusion? Is it a mere symbol within my consciousness? Does this item called money ‘exist’? What is this item which I call the ‘dollar’? Is it fake, funny money, an illusion or what? Let’s think about this concept (idea) called money and especially this currency called ‘dollar’ for this missive. […]

August 7, 2019 | Virtual Wealth, Virtual Currencies, Virtual Valuations, Virtual Prices!

Let’s start with a definition of this concept (word) called VIRTUAL: Virtual:  COMPUTING not physically existing as such but made by software to appear to do so. Virtual:  an artificial environment which is experienced through sensory stimuli (such as sights and math data) provided by a computer and in which one’s actions partially determine what […]

August 6, 2019 | Fed Desires Independence to Further its Control over Economy! My View!

Past Fed administrators desire FED independence to further control the American economy. Do the American people understand this institution? The Donald wants a pumped up economy, lower interest rates, more counterfeiting of the virtual dollar, and more central planning. Is this what America needs going forward? Let’s talk about this organization called The FED! Two […]

August 5, 2019 | Banksters Fool US! How? Think!

We now live with VIRTUAL currencies…mere reflections of a real bank note. As a bankster I can create ‘virtual’ money from my thinking. The above image in the mirror is a virtual image (an illusion). Today, our money is an ‘illusion’ as it is ‘virtual’. Banksters type an image ($1.00) into the computer screen and call […]

August 3, 2019 | Can Digital Markets Decouple from Production? Let’s Think!

A digital stock exchange index can go UP or DOWN even while the general goods economy does the opposite. This is happening in Venezuela as I write this missive. This is crucial for everyone to understand. My clubhouse friends now understand! Digital stock exchanges use virtual monies to measure value! This means that the exchange […]

August 1, 2019 | Cyber Markets are Mentally ill! Why?

I now trade and pay with a smart phone using cyber digits as my money! What do you use to buy, sell, and trade? What does all this mean? Today the Dow Index dropped some 500 points in a matter of minutes. This happened due to comments by Mr. Trump regarding tariffs on Chinese goods. […]

July 31, 2019 | Central Banks the PROBLEM! Why?

Today, the U.S. Fed (via Chairman Powell) dropped the FFR by 0.25%. This was a meaningless action IMO which reveals the impotence of this institution. Going forward, I expect a further decease in this FFR (federal funds rate) in the September meeting. The next meeting is scheduled for September 17-18 and I now expect a 0.50% […]

July 21, 2019 | Consciousness, the Key Concept for Understanding Money!

Let’s think on this concept called ‘consciousness’. This concept is key to understanding money, finance, debt, and investments. It’s my consciousness where my money is stored (virtually). Virtual money is what we use today for our monetary transactions. See here for all this virtual money living within our consciousness:   http://www.usdebtclock.org   When I say the […]

July 11, 2019 | Does Debt and Deficits Matter (for USA)?

http://www.usdebtclock.org Think about this situation called debt and deficits. America’s trade deficit is now over $886 billion (up some 34 fold since 1980). America’s national debt is now some $22.5 trillion (up some 25 fold since 1980). It appears that America can live off the world system of production indefinitely. Or is there a limit to […]

July 10, 2019 | Powell: Economy is ‘Strong’ but Crosscurrents (growing)?

Fed speak is often difficult to interpret. The testimony today of our Fed Chairman, Mr. Powell, suggests that he is uncertain about where our economy is going. He claims the economy is ‘strong’ (his words) but the crosscurrents are also present. What does this mean in layman’s language? Let’s decipher the jargon!   I would suggest […]

July 9, 2019 | All My ‘Money’ Lives in the Cyber CLOUD! What does this MEAN?

I now live with cyber money, virtual money, digital money, imaginary money, fake money.Are you aware of what has evolved since 2008? Our banking system and our financial system has gone virtual and all our money now lives in THE CLOUD. I have no real physical money any longer. I transact my financial affairs in […]

July 7, 2019 | Liberty, Equality, and Justice: Not Possible Under Current System!

The celebration of our Independence from Great Britain (1776 and after) created a SYSTEM which espoused the above ideals but we have not realized these ideals. It is now some 243 years since the founding of our SYSTEM (called a Republic) and the people are now more enslaved than when the founding documents were written. Celebrating […]

July 2, 2019 | Macro Events Point to Growing Demand for Gold!

This new payments system called INSTEX is now in operation for countries like Germany, Britain, and France who desire to trade with Iran. Britain, Germany, and France could put pressure on America’s dollar system going forward! There are a number of macro-events which now point to a growing demand for gold. The new payments system over […]

June 29, 2019 | Osaka Summit: Promotes Global Rules, Digital Economy, Centralization!

How can American’s support this leader of Saudi Arabia who engineered the Khashoggi killing? I am shocked at the image above of our leader, Mr. Trump! After listening to the video presented about the Osaka Summit, June 28-29, the words of our leaders (including Mr. Trump) reveal that everyone is on board to promote globalization […]

June 22, 2019 | Confidence Now Collapsing Globally! What Does This Mean?

The up and down of financial confidence! It’s a fragile internal concept of our mind! Our real markets (production of goods) is starting to collapse and decline. This is evident in Europe and also globally. Fear is developing within the halls of our central planners. The talk is now about sustaining the bull market in […]

June 21, 2019 | Will Algo’s Slam Silver/Gold or Could Demand Overwhelm?

Our Treasury department via their proxies (the Exchange Stabilization Fund and the Plunge Protection Team) desire that silver/gold prices remain suppressed. This is natural as these authorities desire to promote our digital/virtual currencies for everyone. Virtual money is desired and physical money is passe. All historical monies must be gradually eliminated from our markets so that […]

June 19, 2019 | My Take on Jay Powell’s Decision to Not Change Rate Policy!

America’s Fed Chairman, Jr. Jerome Powell, has decided to wait on changing the Fed Funds Rate for now. This rate will remain at 2.25% to 2.50%. Most pundits seemed to expect a rate reduction as our economy seems to be slowing. Mr. Powell, however, has concluded that consumer spending is solid and that demand is steady […]

June 18, 2019 | Gold and Silver Capped Until the Crash!

Silver is controlled by an algorithm which caps the spot price (currently under $15). Gold is also controlled by an algorithm and it’s price is capped. Our corrupt authorities at the Treasury can use the Exchange Stabilization Fund and the Plunge Protection Team to cap these prices so as to deceive the markets on what should […]

June 12, 2019 | Is Hyper-Inflation Likely? Let’s Think!

John Williams, economist/pundit, believes that the U.S. economy will evolve into hyper-inflation down the road. John Williams is a well known critic of our Keynesian monetary system and I do follow some of his logic. Yet what I sense is just the opposite. The dollar markets IMO are much different from most fiat currencies. Hyper-inflation […]
