  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    berbno1,

    I try to stay away from the "L" word since I'm a libertarian. However, I infer I could have used the "S", "C" or "B" word rather than the "P" word.

    Eugenics was a well established and popular pseudo science back in the 20's to 40's just as Global Warming a pseudo science now. Hitler advanced that science with great efficiency to improve human condition. Are you going to defend that science as you would global warming?

    Technology, I have no problems with technology. An AR-15 shoots much better than a musket.

    Economic development, I'm all in for economic development thru capitalism but I'm pretty sure you have something else in mind. I guess you would prefer anything along the line of FORWARD likes Mao's "Great Leap Forward".

    Social organization such as the Bolshevik engineered famine in Ukraine sure did wonder to improve the human condition.

    I used to think the idea of maintaining a "well regulated militia" is so 18th century until I saw this video. This is what the 2nd amendment is all about. Btw, it's amazing that the mainstream media still hasn't given this incident much coverage.

    RIQ,

    "And as a school teacher, I always preferred to have students leave class wondering and questioning, as a product of the objective data but also from the conflicting theories deriving from this newly acquired information."

    Well, have you been wondering and questioning about progressivism and global warming?

    RIQ,

    Would you concur that George Bernard Shaw was an icon of the progressive left? I believe the left still reveres him in a way they do the sexual predator - Bill Clinton, the drunken murderer and traitor (http://bit.ly/1kzrkjl) - Ted Kennedy and their most beloved - fat Al.

    Hitler didn't come up with the idea of gas chamber? That was good old George Bernard Shaw's idea.

    Gene Jaquet,

    Bush's lies about the Saddam's WMD, Obama's lies about chemical weapons used in Syria, killing of Gaddafi and the current situation in Ukraine all serve to shore up the crumbling dollar's global reserve currency status.

    RIQ,

    "Wouldn't there now be a new field of study examining how such a colassal hoax could have and continues to confound humanity?"

    Al Sharpton is a colossal hoax, he is now a pillar of the democratic party whom Obama, Clinton and all NYC mayoral candidates constantly pay homage to - Eric Holder cried on his shoulder about being disrespected by the Republicans in a congressional hearing.

    Progressive movement is a colossal hoax, it started as a racist movement promoting eugenics, the attempt to improve the human species socially through better breeding which was a widespread and popular movement in the United States and Europe between 1910 and 1940. Margaret Sanger, founder of Plan Parenthood, and Adolf Hitler were both progressive.

    There really should be a new field of study examining how such colossal hoaxes could have and continues to confound humanity.

  • Economic Outlook For Rest Of 2014: Acceleration [View article]
    Another problem I'm seeing is that people are not planning on starting family due to their financial situation. I'm making an assumption that half of my tenants can't start a family since they are living paycheck to paycheck, the other half is too busy and involve in their work to get married and they are all in their 30's.

  • Economic Outlook For Rest Of 2014: Acceleration [View article]
    In a super micro point of view, construction is steaming in NYC. Folks who were eager to do works on my properties two years ago are not so eager to earn a little extra incomes anymore. They told me their bosses rather give them overtime than to hire more workers and they are afraid to take off in fear of losing the gigs.

    My residential tenants are a mix bag. The ones who make over $100,000 almost always pay rent on time. The ones make around $50,000 are living paycheck to paycheck.

    My commercial tenants are a mix bag too. The one who is doing well purchased a building and will move when the lease is up. The one not doing well, a dentist office, threaten to move if I don't lower the rent.

    My tenant at the Miami Beach condo who has never been late with her rent seems to have problem paying on time in the last few months.

  • Chinese February Gold Imports Show Strong Chinese Demand: What Chinese Credit Crunch? [View article]
    "Never touch DUST, never will."

    Hebba,

    The central government had arrested over 300 corrupted officials and confiscated their assets. I think that is probably the reason why gold sale spike in February.

    Businesses in China use copper and iron ores for collaterals, not gold. I think they use gold to hide their ill gotten wealth from the central government. Even if the liquidity shortage is as severe as reported, they would rather lose things they cannot hide such as real estates and copper than their gold.

  • Chinese February Gold Imports Show Strong Chinese Demand: What Chinese Credit Crunch? [View article]
    Nah, the Chinese won't do a smack down like the one back in April last year. If it were the Chinese, the smack down would be a lot more subtle and sly.

    These smack downs are so blatant and in your face. It is too cow-boyish to be orchestrated by the Chinese and seems to be more like us crazy Americans.

    filipo,

    Here is an interesting article about a thought of a dual system: "in which the Anglo-Americans and their allied states decide to go in one direction, maintaining their hegemony around the dollar and the euro, and the rest of the world going in another. It would be inherently unstable, and throw the global credit and forex markets into a somewhat chaotic state. But then again, who could have predicted the folly of a loosely associated set of nations adopting a single currency without the rigor of monetary transfers and fiscal union with which to balance the system."

    submarine,

    Credibility is not exactly the word I'm looking for. What I really want to transpire is that Russian and Chinese central banks cannot orchestrate the great escape from the dollar alone. They need the IMF, the old banking cartel, to hold their hands.

    If the European faction of the IMF cooperated with the BRICS, the dollar is done. Come to think of it, if the Saudi join them, we are finished and that means a very likely WW III. I think that possibility and our still formidable military is what is holding back that cackle of hyenas.

    Molycorp52,

    I believe China is stockpiling gold for the inevitable global fiat reset. The last thing they want is the reserve status which will eventually kill their factories and export. Personally, I think billions of Chinese with the buying/spending power of the US will drain the global resources in a nano second. It's not going to happen.

    A friend in Iceland told me that they were poor before the financial engineered boom. They are broke and poor again after the country went bust. However, Iceland now has many roads and infrastructures which they didn't have before the boom.

    I think the Chinese know that if the dollar collapsed, no other currencies can escape the following fiat carnage in this super interconnected global economy. That is why they are building ghost cities and buying up as much gold and resources as fast as they possibly can.
