  • No Hope For Gold Bugs?  [View article]
    Our system is being flown like a B1 Bomber. You know - those planes that can't be flown manually but only with computer assist. This is all new territory. I guess all you can do is buckle up and hedge in as many directions as possible.

  • U.S. Job Growth Fastest Since Dot-Com Boom Of The 1990s  [View article]
    Say What???? With the Oil Patch laying off thousands???? I believe that like I believe their BS about Russia invading the Ukraine - which I grew up hearing was part of Russia. No wonder no one listens to the mainstream media anymore.

  • With 'Grexit' Fears Overblown, Is It Time To 'Grenter' Greek Stocks?  [View article]
    I'm hearing that Greeks in some government jobs retire at 50-55??? If I lived there I could have been retired for the last 15 years instead of working and paying for our welfare state. Yes - I too could be dancing on roofs like Zorba.

  • The Deflation Calamity Howlers Are Dead Wrong - In Europe And Everywhere Else  [View article]
    I wonder how this all plays out in China where there aren't politicians that need corporate money to stay elected while promising constituents more then there is.

    Maybe that's what the easy to get disability is all about. I personally know several healthy people on it. Two navy vets from the same household who say their service screwed them up to where they can't work. I can personally attest to this being false. I recently hired a temp worker, who just got out of the service. He told me his buddies encouraged him to get on disability as it was easy to attain. Perhaps the central bankers figure pumping money into the system from the bottom up will get it circulating.

  • Is Deflation Coming To America?  [View article]
    Perhaps the whole system is structurally unsound being based on debt. If we the people issued government money and spent it into existence thru infrastructure projects as suggested by Ellen Brown in her "Web of Debt", then you could stimulate easily with productive projects. Workers would get the money 1st instead of banks. The Powers That Be - kill to protect their money business, so it would take a total breakdown to change the system. But when it does fail, we should be careful not to jump out of the frying pan and into the fire.

  • 7 Signs China's Economy Is Headed For Collapse  [View article]
    And they have a few trillion in surpluses to cover bad debts. The problem with our system is when the economy is good, everyone wants more of the pie and the politicians are happy to oblige in exchange for a vote. So we run huge deficits in good times when we should be storing up for bad times.

    I do applaud China for at least attempting to stop population growth. You don't double one billion people too many times before everyone starves.

  • Why Is The U.S. Dollar's Value Collapsing All Of A Sudden?  [View article]
    I like Don Kaufman's logic: You many think you know whats going to happen but you really don't know. No one does, so you have to be hedged in both directions. A lot of heavy hitters got hurt bad by betting the farm on a continued real estate boom, but you always have to be hedged for that unlikely Black Swan event because they eventually will happen. You can't make as much money that way, but you won't loose it all either. I personally suspect the petrodollar is doomed, but I might not be seeing everything behind the scenes? Should I put everything into gold? What if the Grey Aliens have given the Illuminati the technology to manufacture gold out of lead??? Yah that's right - I think about thinks like that.

  • U.S. Unemployment Rate Falls To 5 Year Low Of 6.7% In December But Job Growth Lags  [View article]
    Disability seem to be the new unemployment compensation. It seems anyone can get on it. If you did some checking you would see that is where people falling off the roles are landing.

    I believe anyone on government assistance should not be having children.

  • Ron Paul Has It Totally Backwards, Gold Isn't Going To Explode Higher  [View article]
    With a gold standard, when the economy booms and money is borrowed for enterprise, it soon becomes scarce since it's not elastic. It then becomes more valuable. Why risk lending money/gold when it is gaining value anyway? The boom runs out of liquidity and chokes on it's self. We saw that time and time again in the 1800's. I would prefer a national bank with elastic currency.

  • Shale Boom Is Real Enough  [View article]
    The reverberations from the 10 million dollars spent on just one oil /gas well here in the US, goes quite a ways. The money spent on the casing, the drilling bentonite, the rough necks, the truckers, the land owner, etc etc. Like fractional reserve banking there is a multiplier effect as the money gets spread out and exchanged further and further away from the well. Land lords, waitresses, car salesmen, carpenters, shop owners, etc etc all getting in on that exchange, that started at the drill site. Prominent economists can't see this? Now why does that not surprise me.

    Believe in inflation has become a religion or superstition, if you will. You'll not find the natives in friendly agreement. Perhaps they should read Gary Shilling.
