The True Legacy Of David Rockefeller

Via MintPressNews.com, While often remembered for his philanthropy, the last surviving grandson of America’s first billionaire died today, leaving behind a dark legacy indicative of how American nobility often shape policy from behind the scenes. No one person encapsulates the enduring legacy of the “robber barons” of the Industrial Age quite like David Rockefeller. Rockefeller, […]

Let’s Have a Look at the Great Bull Market of 2017

ibankcoin.com / Dr. Fly / Mar 20, 2017 4:02pm EST We’ve definitely run into some resistance as of late. Part of the recent reticence in stocks is due to the Nov-Dec rally, post election, which caught everyone off guard. Now we’re digesting recent gains, sitting around doing nothing, while Mother Market decides where to take us next. […]

Yellen surprises hedge funds that cut gold wagers before rally

gata.org / By Luzi-Ann Javier / Sunday, March 19, 2017 Janet Yellen’s soothing words on the pace of U.S. interest rate hikes were a day late for hedge funds losing faith in the metal. Money managers cut their bullish bets on bullion by the most since 2015 in the week ended March 14. The next day, Federal […]

Obama, Bernanke and Yellen Rigged the Bond Market. Now it’s Trump Turn to Dance or be their Dunce! – By Michael Carino

Government dysfunction is at its worst.  We voted them in.  We have no one to blame but ourselves. Granted, the choices were abysmal. But the Republican and Democratic parties, with no third party competition, can continue to run dysfunctional governments, whittling away our dominant global position until the cracks of our broken government becomes abundantly […]

Did The Fed Just Hint At Monster Inflation?

We won’t bore you with yet another article about the recent rate hike by the Federal Reserve. This move was widely expected, as the Fed members had been hinting this would happen for several months now. Additionally, the new ‘hints’ about an additional two rate hikes later this year also didn’t surprise the market as […]

Steve ‘Big Short’ Eisman: Smart, Lucky, Abrasive (& Now One Of Them)

Authored by Jim Quinn via The Burning Platform blog, I loved Michael Lewis’ book – The Big Short – about the 2008 Wall Street created global financial catastrophe, that is still impacting the little guys on Main Street eight years after it was supposedly resolved by Paulson, Bernanke and Obama. I even wrote an article […]

A Bad Week (And Getting Badder Bigly Fast)

Authored by Howard Kunstler via Kunstler.com, Well, of course they bugged Trump Tower. Why wouldn’t they? Trump’s big blunder du jour is that he tweeted “wiretapped,” like some hapless sap out of a 1950s I Was a Spy for the FBI movie. (I know people who still say “ice box,” too.) So he left himself […]

Atlanta Fed vs NY Fed: Whose GDP Forecast Is Right?

Authored by Salil Mehta via Statistical Ideas blog, There is a 2/3 chance that both competing Federal Reserve 2017 Q1 GDP nowcasts are wrong! That’s an audacious prediction for the storied NY and Atlanta institutions (one of them led by my former big boss Timothy Geithner), and yet there is no way around the current confusion […]

Has The Deep State Begun Its Revenge On Trump?

Authored by Nick Giambruno via InternationalMan.com, The Deep State is set to prick the largest bubble in human history today… The Deep State is the permanently entrenched “national security” bureaucracy – the top tier of the military, the CIA, FBI, NSA, etc. It also includes the Federal Reserve, the quintessential Establishment institution. They all hate […]

Rates Up – Gold Up – Why ???

news.goldseek.com / By Ross Norman / Thursday, 16 March 2017 To observers of financial markets it must seem odd that they often behave exactly the opposite to what is expected. Explaining it is also a strange thing too. Essentially when the US Federal Reserve jawbones a potential move such as a rate hike (for the best part […]
