Bill Bonner on the US Economy

Scams and Fixes   Maria Bonaventura Oct. 20, 2019   Scams… fixes… dirty tricks… pixie dust? Regular Diary readers are familiar with Bill’s take on the dangers of the Federal Reserve’s meddling in the money system. This week, Bill explains why there’s no hero riding in to save the day when the Fed’s flawed fixes finally fail the reality test ahead…   America’s Economy Is a Scam All over the world, the authorities are moving toward more inflation and more debt, without even waiting for a deflationary crisis to set it off. It is a strange world, you will say. But isn’t this whole strange economy thing just a scam? Gasp! A Capitalist! A capitalist – yes, a CAPITALIST! – is running for the highest office in the land. But don’t worry… our editor assures us that a real capitalist will never sit in the White House… Where’s Paul Volcker When You Need Him? With the game rigged in their favor, the rich just get richer and richer… In other words, the fix is in. And this time, there’s no Paul Volcker on hand to fix the fix… The Fed Is Back to Its Old Tricks After a brief and insincere flirtation with “normalcy,” the Fed is back to its old, perverted tricks. It’s handing out new money hand over fist. The only issue outstanding is which boondoggles get funded....

Doom!

We’re Doomed   Maria Bonaventura Oct. 13, 2019   The economy… the stock market… even you… It’s all doomed. That was Bill’s jolly take this week, as he explored the wonky world of phony prices… fake fiat… and solving wealth inequality – by taking money from the rich, one tax dollar at a time…   Trump and Warren: Two Sides of the Same Coin The Donald thinks he’s to thank for rising stock prices. But Bill has a different take. It’s not divine right that is boosting the markets… It’s something much more real – and much more vulnerable to the limits of time… Coming Soon: The Biggest Financial Calamity in U.S. History On Tuesday, our editor turns to a topic no one seems to care much about – debt. If you haven’t been paying attention to the feds’ lax phony-money policies, Dear Reader, now’s the time… Whip Inflation Now! Dimes for bonds… So it was that our editor learned the true value of our nation’s debt. And what he learned about it is that it’s laughable at best… How China May Control the White House Politics rules. That’s the grim conclusion our editor comes to on Thursday. But what does it mean for you? The answer starts with everything… and ends with nothing… Blame the Rich Every calamity needs its scapegoat. And Bill knows whose heads will be resting on...

Magnier)….   Qui. 10 GOVERNO BOLSONARO E OCDE :  Da newsletter de OGlobo: “Apesar de promessas públicas do presidente Donald Trump, os Estados Unidos não formalizaram apoio ao ingresso do Brasil na Organização de Cooperação e Desenvolvimento Econômico (OCDE). O país foi preterido por Argentina e Romênia, que ganharam endosso do governo americano. Repercussão: a negativa foi recebida com frustração pelo governo brasileiro. Publicamente, no entanto, autoridades dizem que o apoio americano está mantido, mas Argentina e Romênia têm prioridade. O assessor internacional do presidente Jair Bolsonaro, Filipe Martins, disse que há “histeria” na repercussão sobre a recusa. A embaixada dos EUA em Brasília afirmou, em texto, que o país continua a favor da proposta brasileira. Por que isso importa: o apoio formal à...

USAmerica is the most corrupt

Ever since FDR died…   Eric Zuesse Oct. 6, 2019   [US]Americans don’t do it voluntarily, but mainly because they don’t understand the way the US system works. Part of that is the nation’s legal system; part of it isn’t, but is instead international. Regardless of whether or not today’s United States is a democracy, our legal system possesses two features that make corruption especially difficult to prosecute to conviction, and this difficulty is extreme and makes such convictions extremely rare at the top, amongst members of Congress, and Presidents, and former federal officials, and billionaires, so that people at that level need to be extremely stupid in order to be convictable for whatever corruption they might do. (And such extreme stupidity is virtually non-existent amongst that elite, most powerful, group. So, they get away with it. There is absolutely nothing to stop them.) Consequently, corruption is rampant at the top in America. Both of these two domestic, US, features apply also to some lesser extent in every other country; and, at the end, I’ll describe the exacerbating factor that makes the situation especially bad in the United States — the international factor, which intensifies America’s corruption-problem. Reason Number One why Americans favor corruption is that (especially at the top) corruption is, to a large extent — and very unlike lower-class crimes of directviolence — a judgment-call, largely political,...
