Two Different Countries

Which Lives Matter Most?   Emma Walsh Jun. 21, 2020   The narrative has changed… No longer are Americans confined to their homes to save lives. Now, there are more lives to be saved… and there’s another cause… one that warrants leaving your house to publicly gather with others to protest. And politicians talk about “reparations,” to settle the debt for centuries of mistreatment of Blacks. But Bill has a better idea… Regards, Emma Walsh Managing Editor, Bill Bonner’s Diary   Forget COVID. Here’s a New Bamboozle! Two months ago, Americans were directed to stay at home to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus and, ultimately, save lives. Now, though, there’s a new myth… a cause worth dying for… and it’s time to take to the streets en masse. Our editor asks, “What gives?” Which Lives Matter Most? Still trying to connect the dots… our editor questions the new imperative. Is every life worth saving – as we were told just a couple of months ago, when the country was locked down to prevent the spread of the deadly coronavirus? Or do some lives matter more? Lockdown Adventures in the Calchaquí Valley Taking a break from connecting dots of the political and financial kind… Bill makes the most of his extended quarantine in Argentina by exploring some of the ancient treasures of the Calchaquí Valley. Thought Police are...

Rigged

The Elites Have Rigged the System   Emma Walsh Jun. 14, 2020   This week, our editor showed us how the system is rigged against the common man… how the elites are exploiting the “two-system” system… and hogging wealth for themselves…. But will hard work, grit, and wise spending help the common man to beat the system, or poverty? Or is he less well-off because of his own bad choices, as some readers believe? Regards, Emma Walsh Managing Editor, Bill Bonner’s Diary   Nightmare on Main Street One country, two systems. On Wall Street, everything is “recovering” nicely, thank you very much. It’s as if the last three months were just a bad dream. But on Main Street – in the real world – the nightmare continues… Paternalism at the Ranch At our editor’s ranch in the Calchaquí Valley in Argentina, the landowner’s traditional “paternalistic” role is still practiced. And that means helping the local people out with all manner of problems… some more “delicate” than others… No Return to Normal for the Main Street Economy There seems to be no limit on what the feds can print and spend to fight all their phony wars – against poverty, drugs, and now COVID-19. But the end result is just more wealth and power for the wealthy… and a kick in the teeth for the man on Main Street… The...

The Great [US]American Collapse   Emma Walsh Jun. 7, 2020   As America’s cities burn, our editor reflects on the people’s rallying cry… The cause of the destruction, he believes, goes beyond any demands for social justice. And he shows how, with bitterness and resentment on the rise, this is likely just the beginning of the collapse – for both the economy and society as we know it… Regards, Emma Walsh Managing Editor, Bill Bonner’s Diary   The Big COVID-19 Scam Our editor starts off the new month by looking at one of the biggest public policy humbugs in human history: The House Arrest scam to “save” Americans from COVID-19… Long, Hot Summer Social unrest adds to the COVID-19 crisis. Protests and riots break out around the nation as Americans call for racial reform. Racism, says Bill, is something we can all understand… but it points to a deeper issue lurking beneath the surface… The Knee on All Our Necks Bill draws a comparison between the tragic death of George Floyd and the Federal Reserve’s stifling of the economy. What gives them the power to prosecute counterfeit crimes when they’re committing acts of destruction… on the largest scale in American history? Your Choice: A Rip-Off or a Fraud In Thursday’s essay, our editor unveils the two systems running America… one a fraud, the other a rip-off. On the one...

Bill Bonner : cronification?

The Cronification of the American Proletariat   Emma Walsh May 31, 2020   This week, still confined to his ranch in Argentina, our editor explores his surroundings in search of ancient Indian ruins atop a 500-foot-high sheer stone cliff. From there, he can clearly see the cronification of the American proletariat… as millions of people have come to depend on handouts from the government instead of paychecks from their employers. And his birdseye view of the Argentine economy provides the perfect example of where it will all lead… Regards, Emma Walsh Managing Editor, Bill Bonner’s Diary   A Tale of One of the Most Successful Investments of All Time This daring, bold, difficult, but ultimately, very profitable investment created one of South America’s biggest fortunes… There are lessons to be learned from its success… and its failure… How to Make Memorial Day More Meaningful The Memorial Day holiday is meant to be an occasion for Americans to pay homage to the military personnel who died in service. Instead, it is no more than an exercise in self-aggrandizing humbuggery. Today, our editor proposes a way to make the holiday more meaningful… Journey to the Lost World Our editor is on quest – to find the ancient Indian ruins rumored to be at the top of the mysterious 500-foot-high mesa. But first, he must find the long-lost “secret stairway.” No stranger...

Bill Bonner’s Week

Formula for Disaster   Emma Walsh May 24, 2020   We have passed the point of no return… Right now, only half of all Americans are working… Entire industry sectors have been decimated… Retail sales figures for April, for example, show the biggest drop in 70 years. But the only plan in town is to crank up the printing presses and print up more and more fake money to “stimulate” the economy back to “normal.” And yet, in the middle of the worst economic crisis in at least 90 years, speculators are bidding up stocks to levels normally only seen at the top of a boom. As Bill says, “This is a formula for disaster. You’d have to have a Ph.D. in economics not to see it.” Regards, Emma Walsh Managing Editor, Bill Bonner’s Diary   Back to School Twenty years ago, Bill wrote that no pure paper money has ever survived a complete interest rate cycle. Now, it looks like his theory is about to be put to the test… and we’re about to relearn a costly lesson that has been wiped from the collective memories of recent generations… Back to School – Part II The damage to the U.S. economy from the coronavirus lockdowns has been catastrophic. Whole industry sectors are on their knees. And with the Trump/Fauci Depression coming into view, it seems the only plan...
