Warren Pollock – The English Economic Model Will Assure Global Doom

Unfortunately, An ancient English Triumvirate of Social Theory now dominates the dogma dominating all current economic thinking including Keynesianism. Our “modern” American Empire rests on the theoretical social foundation of Smith 1776 Wealth of Nations, Malthus 1798 An Essay on the Principle of Population, and Darwin 1856 Journalized notes on Theory of Natural Selection (Origin […]

Charting China’s ‘Monetary Policy’ Impotence

Iron Ore inventories to the roof; steel production still ramping; food and energy prices soaring; economy deteriorating rapidly. So why no major stimulus from the PBoC? Too busy in-fighting or perhaps waiting on The Fed or The ECB to rescue us all; we suspect neither of the above. This chart, via Goldman Sachs, indicates the […]

Russia’s Gazprom Tightens Its Stranglehold On Europe, France Falls: The Natural Gas War Gets Dirty

Wolf Richter   www.testosteronepit.com Why would France suddenly prohibit shale gas exploration? Sure, there are environmental issues with horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing, the methods used to extract gas from porous shale deep underground: flammable drinking water, earth quakes, cows that die, radioactive sludge in sewage treatment plants….

He means everything to me!” But when it comes to Romney or Obama, any amount of defamation is perfectly fine and even acceptable. Fortunately for me, humor doesn’t discriminate. All you need is an open mind. […]

Today’s Mad ‘Manipulated’ World Of Markets; Or "How To Fit 2 Seconds Of Trading Into 1 Millisecond!"

We noted earlier that something looked fishy into the close today – our so-called ‘tickle-algo’ appeared evident – but without the superlative HFT data that Nanex has, we had no way to know just how berserk things were.

Jackson Hole Kicks Off Fall Policy

The much anticipated news from the annual meeting in Jackson Hole, Wyoming failed to create much excitement. Everyone knows the Federal Reserve will eventually resume efforts to continue inflating the money supply to counteract the creeping deflation. Bernanke’s speech set the tone for policy as we kick off autumn. As we have previously surmised, Bernanke […]
