Trump: Trojan Horse for the Establishment or Mighty Mouth for Mankind?

I crave the opportunity to see an anti-establishment candidate win the election. I would exult in seeing our corrupt establishment shattered. So, while I do not like Trump the man (as it would appear he has never done anything that didn’t entirely serve his own self-interest and pompous ego), I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing him upset establishment Republicans and establishment […]

Economic Predictions for Summer 2016: The Epocalypse Keeps Crashing

Brexit — the second major landslide in the Year of the Epocalypse — has bankers all over the world scrambling to pick up and prop up their crumbled facades this week. This is one more jolt in the developing global economic collapse that I predicted for 2016.

Brexit Triggers Existential Eruption of EU: “Disintegration of the EU practically irreversible.”

At long last the tyranny of the global financial elite has been slammed good and hard…. The British people have rejected the arrogant rule of the EU superstate and the tyranny of its unelected courts, commissions and bureaucratic overlords…. Smaller government—–at least in geography—–is being given another chance. And that’s a very good thing because more localized […]

What in the World is Going on with Banks this Week? Emergency meetings, banker summits, crashing European banks, and the worst bank reports since the Great Recession

Just about every major banker and finance minister in the world is meeting in Washington, DC, this week, following two rushed, secretive meetings of the Federal Reserve and another instantaneous and rare meeting between the Fed Chair and the president of the United States. These and other emergency bank meetings around the world cause one to wonder what is […]

Entering the Belly of the Epocalypse

Only a couple of weeks ago, I said we were entering the jaws of the Epocalypse. Now we are sliding rapidly down the great beast’s throat toward its cavernous belly. The biggest economic collapse the world has ever seen is consuming everything — all commodities, all industries, all national economies, all monetary systems, and eventually all peace and […]

Who is Responsible for Creating America’s National Debt?

In my last article, I described how Republicans and Democrats have equally contributed to America’s national debt AND to our economic crisis. That raised a lot of ire from some people on some blogs, and I’m fine with that because anger is always the response when you try to break through denial, especially mass denial. […]

A Review of “The Big Short”, The Movie

[The following review is by Jim Quinn of The Burning Platform. I came across it after writing an article about American greed. I thought it makes an excellent companion piece to that article because the themes depicted in the movie and described here are the themes I was writing about.]   The Big Short opens nationwide […]

Economic Collapse — The Train Wreck that is Happening Now!

Even the Tweedledumbs of Wall Street are finally catching on to the fact that global economic collapse is happening all around them. Two weeks ago, they could have stood inside the building shown on the left with their nicely polished, rose-colored glasses and seen only signs of an improving housing market. Now enough shingles are falling on their […]

We Are Now in a Global Economic Crisis

First comes global economic crisis where major economic issues are bursting into flames around the world. Then comes total economic collapse, where the damage is a done deal and we live in the rubble. Right now, in September, 2015, the world is in the economic crisis stage — some parts of the planet more so than others; […]

Global Economic Headwinds Continue to Build

The economic turmoil I predicted last spring and summer arrived onshore right on schedule, but the arrival was not quite the storm I said it would be when I later added that the U.S. stock market would likely crash. While the stock market did take a serious plunge a few days after I said its crash was likely imminent, it now rises […]

Economic Impact of Ebola Epidemic Could be E-normous

CBS reports that the World Bank has just issued a dire warning that the economic impact of Ebola could be enormous. An institution usually known for carefully weighed economic statements says that the economic impact of Ebola could be “catastrophic” even if the epidemic doesn’t spread beyond Africa. By the end of 2015, the economic impact of […]

Economic Forecast 2014: Strong Headwinds Face Global Economy

My “Economic Forecast 2014” starts with Russia. The first breezes of coming turbulence are already blowing in on the U.S. as a storm I’ll name “the Russian Rampage” hits Crimea and Russia braces for the the U.S. response. Foreign-owned U.S. bonds held in custody of the Federal Reserve took their largest drop on record last […]

Simple and Clear Reasons the Next Economic Crash Will be Worse Than the Last

We’ve spent an unprecedented fortune trying to rebuild out of the rubble of The Great Recession; yet, we are building by the same architecture that caused our economic structure to collapse in the first place. We all recall how the buzz phrase of the Great Recession was “too big to fail.” The lynchpin that triggered […]

Let’s look at some simple facts about how much improvement Obamanomics has given us in the job market after five years.
