  • Why Do Banks Want Our Deposits? Hint: It's Not To Make Loans [View article]
    LJK.... the concept of "riskless" is debatable. In point of fact, there is value to a deposit in a financial institution. It is certainly not zero.

    The assumption to your response is that a Greater Depression actually would have occurred?

    An ounce of risk was the only other choice.

    "The 12 regional Federal Reserve Banks, which were established by the Congress as the operating arms of the nation's central banking system, are organized similarly to private corporations--possibly leading to some confusion about "ownership." For example, the Reserve Banks issue shares of stock to member banks. However, owning Reserve Bank stock is quite different from owning stock in a private company. The Reserve Banks are not operated for profit, and ownership of a certain amount of stock is, by law, a condition of membership in the System. The stock may not be sold, traded, or pledged as security for a loan; dividends are, by law, 6 percent per year. "

    Point of Fact.... the FED does NOT return all profits to the Treasury. The retain a portion (6% I believe).

    Might look at who has been pursuing EBOLA research for years and years and who owns patents related to EBOLA and who stands to gain if vaccines are developed.

  • Market Timing Report: 10-20% Correction Due To Extreme Sentiment And Leverage [View article]
    Growing an economy...let's see....grocery stores are a growth industry? Compact cars the same? Apartment rents contribute way less than single family homes. Having money left over after necessities contributes to capital formation. Social Security recipients don't grow an economy (I would think Japan is an example).

    Population growth, innovation, housing expansion, increased labor participation and labor shortages drive up wages and spending. Selling another billion gallons of milk...not so much.

    RIQ -

    "The U.S. lucked out in the panoply of men that comprised the Founding Fathers."

    You can't be serious in making such a comment. Really. In your mind there was no "reason" for these men to be in the "colonies" other than what.... chance?

    Seriously?

    Delatopia.... Interesting name caller. I see you are providing lots of solutions and input along with your name calling - NOT. Please describe the nature of your screen name and the meaning of "TOPIA". Is that some ambition you have?

    RQ - the quys from the 18th century who pulled all this together were probably the best informed, most educated of anyone in their time on systems of governments. My suspicion is that they would put anyone in this administration to shame in a debate. And, I suspect they could give you a run for your money too. There are some concepts that are fundamentally "timeless". The right to vote belongs to US Citizens.

    "Radioactive Wolves" - isn't that the same as "Hedge Fund Managers"?
