July 8, 2018 | The Global Economy is Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Well, it’s official: “Japan Inc.” is now “Bank of Japan Inc.” Oh, OK, not officially official, but just about. As the Nikkei Asian Review reports, the Bank of Japan (BOJ) is now a top-10 shareholder in a whopping 40% of the listed companies in the country. That’s right, having purchased 25 trillion yen ($227 billion) worth of exchange-traded […]

June 30, 2018 | From Trade War to Hot War in One Easy Step

America is in a funk. Slipping into an economic and cultural morass and at risk of losing its footing on the global chessboard, American workers find themselves working more and making less money. How can this be? Flailing for an answer, they find it in the mouth of a politician who tells them he can […]

June 17, 2018 | India and China Announce The “Oil Buyers Club”

I’ve been looking at some of the globalist summits around the world lately but here’s one that slipped under the radar: the International Energy Forum. The IEF’s 16th bienniel energy ministers meeting took place in New Delhi this past April and brought together 5o of the world’s energy ministers, 30 energy company CEOs and 12 heads of international organizations. […]

June 9, 2018 | Your Guide to this Weekend’s Globalist Conference Circuit

Oh, pity the poor globalists. They’re going to be running around like chickens with their heads cut off in the next few days. …Well, OK, more like flying around in their private jets like well-pampered chickens with their heads cut off, but you get the idea. Why? Well, because globalist conference season is in full […]

June 2, 2018 | How to Skirt Sanctions

“Abandon all hope ye who enter here.” That, famously, is the inscription above the gates of hell in Dante’s Inferno, and, if Uncle Sam gets his way, it will be the first thing that comes to mind for any company seeking to skirt the Iranian sanctions that are snapping back into place in the coming months. […]

May 13, 2018 | Iran Battles Uncle Sam for the Heart of the EU

So it’s come to this. The fate of the world hangs in the balance…and it’s the EU that’s going to be the deciding factor. The EU? Really? Sigh.  You may have heard that the US scrapped the Iranian nuclear deal this week, setting off a series of events that could very likely end up […]

May 5, 2018 | Japan’s Stealth Army

Last month, while everyone was distracted by other events, the Japanese government did something rather remarkable: They activated a marine unit. Specifically, the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force activated a 1,500 man unit known as the Amphibious Rapid Deployment Brigade. The occasion was marked by a ceremony at Sasebo military base on the island of Kyushu. This […]

April 15, 2018 | The Facebook Privacy Revelations Aren’t That Shocking

It’s shocking, shocking, I tell you! Apparently, and I’m just learning this from some breaking news headlines so bear with me, but apparently Facebook has not been on the up and up when it comes to protecting their users’ privacy. Incredible, I know. I mean, these are still early reports so we’ll have to wait […]

April 8, 2018 | Trade War Is On, But No “Nuclear Option”

Tariffs, counter-tariffs and headlines about trade wars are flowing like wine as the long-anticipated Trump campaign against China is finally shaping up. Given that futures are tumbling, the US trade deficit has just hit a decade low, and, oh yeah, we haven’t seen market volatility like this since the crash of ’87 you might think we have enough ominous financial storm clouds to […]

April 1, 2018 | The Chinese Oil Futures Market Has Opened. Here’s What It Means.

It has been promised for 25 years. Its coming has been heralded as a world-changing event. It has launched a thousand headlines in the last few months. And it happened this week. But if you blinked you would have missed it. What am I talking about? Why, the launch of a Chinese yuan-denominated oil futures […]

March 24, 2018 | Meet Xi Jinping, President For Life

As you might have heard by now, Chinese President Xi Jinping has just appointed himself God Emperor For Life. Or, in Chinese Communist Party-ese: “The term of office of the State Council is the same as that of the National People’s Congress.” For those keeping track at home, that’s the clause in the Chinese constitution that used […]

March 17, 2018 | From Poisoned Spies to WWIII

So you know the poisoning of Sergei Skripal? The incident that is causing British Prime Minister Elizabeth May to start a war of words with the Russians that could potentially lead to World War III? Well, imagine explaining the story to your MSM-addicted, normie friend: YOU: Hey, did you know the US government has a […]

March 10, 2018 | America, China, and the Battle for the “Indo-Pacific”

Goodbye, Asia-Pacific! Hello, Indo-Pacific?  That’s right, the old “Asia-Pacific” label is so last decade, guys. It’s time to start calling that part of the globe the “Indo-Pacific.” Who cares if it’s geographically nonsensical? America’s military planners and their think tank lackeys are starting to change their nomenclature, and you should too! The term entered the vernacular last […]

March 4, 2018 | India’s Biggest-Ever Bank Fraud Unravels

It has all the elements of a Hollywood heist movie: A well-known jeweler-to-the-stars and his shady accomplice. A risky gambit to exploit a banking loophole. Inside help from a high-ranking official. A $2 billion swindle. And the whole house of cards crashing down in spectacular, front-page fashion. But here’s the Bollywood twist: The well-known jeweler […]

November 19, 2017 | When Robots Rule the Markets

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 […]

November 11, 2017 | What You Need to Know About the Saudi Purge

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 […]

November 4, 2017 | The Most Important Documents From the JFK Files

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 […]

November 1, 2017 | Senate Makes It Harder For Americans to Sue Banks

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 […]
