  • PPI Doubles as Best Buy Swings and Misses [View article]
    The Big experiment continues and unfortunately this moron Bernanke can wipe out retirees on a fixed income and poor/middle class will be a hurt'en bunch as necessity prices continue to climb devouring disposable incomes.
    Hey but we got 2% inflation and food prices/energy are not included. No Count according to these bozos at the fed who have made a complete distorted mess of our financial system and economy the last 2 decades.

    The retailers are literally forcing high discounts on consumers to get sales in non-necessities. The consumers at least the middle to low end are a hurt'en bunch after binging on debt the last 2 decades.

  • The Von Mises Prophecy and the U.S. Dollar [View article]
    It appears the bubblelike spending by the govt and fed have boosted short term confidence enough to start a little momentum in the economy. Problem is not much has changed. The same crooks are running the show, the greedy thugs are benefitting the most and their is NO real job growth. Maybe we will get a few more retail clerks, or rehores or hair dressers to boost the economy. i do not see any real new business development in mfg.
    In addition the govt is going wild behind the scenes printing low downpayment auto loans and home mtg loans via FHA!
    The govt is a bunch of paid off crooks and the public is oblivious focusing mainly on bernanke while they pick pocket you behind the scenes with more toxic loans to deadbeat buyers.
    Also we will see Fed govt debt exploding upwards over 414 trillion and states will have to face the music shortly unless Uncle Sam transfers some more liabilities to the 2 year olds.

  • The Von Mises Prophecy and the U.S. Dollar [View article]
    I wonder if Bernanke thinks he has godly powers and can defeat markets??
    If he does then there is no stopping this madman. many doubted Volckers resolve to break inflation in early 1980's and some doubt Crazyhorse bens resolve to produce....Hyperinflat...
    I thought by now that the markets could restrain this madman but having some doubts now.

    The madman Bernanke has a prop under the market at least as long as the global markets believe in it. Once confidence in this ponzi scam is lost watch the hell out.

    Mercenary trader great stuff. Bernanke the Mad Scientist has already chosen his flawed path. Monetizing the debt. That means DECIMATING retirees on fixed incomes, the poor and the middle class via exploding prices in necessities that devours a huge portion of income.

    Ben's ego will not be broken so easily HTB.
    What if he won't stop like weimar? Maybe he will not be forced to stop? Easiest solution for politicians is to allow the con to go on until the dollar collapses.
    Maybe we both should not underestimate this Mad Scientist Bernanke. He may just wipe out the value of the dollar and our debts decimating retirees and poor/middle class.

    We are rolling over trillions in short term debt. Our refinancing needs will be huge this year.
    When rates back up on this huge deficit financing and rollover debt interest expense explodes upwards 2-3%.
    At about $24 billion a month in Fed govt interest expense at current 3.06% avg interest rates (288 bil a year). At 6% will explode yearly interest expense to nearly $600 billion a year!

    And Fed debt continues to explode upward as the Fed govt is the bailout slush fund of last resort.

    Bernanke and the rich have chosen the path....inflate our way out. The poor and middle class along with savers and retirees are going to be crushed. Be prepared.

  • Flow of Funds: Looking at Debt Trends [View article]
    Here we go again. Bro thinks interest rates stay at 0% for ever. Interest rates are a moving target that can spike at anytime accelerating interest expense. It is coming my friend so prepare yourself as this numbnuts bernanke will successfully explode inflation as the dollar drops in value after the PIGS bust.

    Why is it that cyclical company stock prices have infinite p/e's at the bottom and real low single digit p/e's at the top BRO??? You appear to be pretty smart. Come on Man!

    This is the same Affordability SCAM the REhores have been selling house buyers. MONTHLY PAYMENTS. Try selling that same house at your cost if rates back up 2-3% off of these artificially low interest rates??
    Are u cherry picking a bottom interest expense???????
    Bro you and your blind mice Bankster friends cannot see this risk?

    The Fed govt is running deficits deficits to gdp of 90% if u include social security trust treasuries NOT this BS 61% number.
    I guess we can just temrinate those trust treasury bonds cuz they do not count and toss a bunch of retirees off social security???

  • Jump in Profits Leading to Sustainable Growth = Delusional Thinking [View article]
    this is what happens in the early stages of potential hyperinflation in a country with exploding govt debts.
    some people refer back to the early 1940's when govt debt to gdp was high. unfortunately we will not be seeing that kind of growth out of this aircraft carrier sized economy going forward to bail us out of our debts.
    As state govt continue to downsize due to overbloated payrolls unemployment will go higher as the pampered high benefit govt jobs fall.
    Bernanke's PONZI SCAM policies of ASSET inflation does not produce sustainable job and income growth. How does an inflating stock market produce higher income or even more jobs in mfg or the building of long lived energy dependent assets?
    His bubble blowing just produces more debts and pushes malinvestment into already bloated industries like RE and Finance.
    The public should demand the removal of bernanke his idiot friends at the fed.

  • Why You Should Consider Purchasing Some Puts on GLD [View article]
    Brian, Gold took a pretty big dive back in late 2008 that washed out alot of the trigger happy holders. Paper money is for transactions but gold will be used more and more in the global arena to park assets.
    Gold is in the growth business as global demand grows from emerging wealth and investment demand and soon to be developed country demand.
