Finally

January 8, 2016 Leave a comment

After 5 years of insane malinvestment the world is finally – finally – seeing the fruits of its trillions of dollars of labor.  The fruit of the $10 trillion of central bank money used to save the financial system is going to be… wait for it… yes… yet ANOTHER financial crisis.

I envisage the markets today as a spinning top as it beings to slow down, wobbling from side to side, this way and that.  The volatility is making everything wobble, causing oil to go up and then down, stocks to go up and then down, until the whole world crashes to a terrifying slump.

This particular generation of humans – living off fractional reserve banking speculation and central bank bailouts – is the economically dumbest and yet most technologically advanced in history.  We will have apps on our iPhones and on Google Maps to see in real time the collapse of our food supply, the nuclear radiation spewing from Fukushima, and the destruction of our retirement funds.

We will have the highest of high-end technology to view problems caused by the most basic and fundamental of issues – the global mispricing of assets around the world.  This has NEVER happened at the same time all around the world.  The swirling and spinning is occurring at an incredible pace because of globalization – but it would not happen if prices were set by something stable.  Like… I don’t know… like gold.

This level of paper/government/bankster-induced mispricing hasn’t happened since John Laws France, China’s Cultural Revolution, or the madness of the Soviet Union.  Who said communism didn’t win?  Free markets have been killed.  Strangled without so much as a whimper of protest from the populace.

Communism has in fact won without having to shoot one real bullet.  It came slowly, behind the scenes, via central banking and the supposedly “capitalist” bankers – communists in suits.

Global central bankers planning their way to today’s complete and utter disaster.  That seems like a communist “win” to me.

Current economic policies cause domestic genocide

Governments around the world are still screaming that economic activity is causing “global warming” and we must consume less or we face a dystopian future full of rising water and blustery gales.  But when we actually do what they say we must do, and consume less, that’s suddenly really really bad.  They call it “hoarding cash”.  This, for some unknown reason, despite being what they wanted to “cure” the global warming menace, is somehow all of a sudden “wrong” – and prompts the government to push us into bizarre wasteful Keynesian policies like cash for clunkers, where perfectly good cars were deliberately destroyed and put in landfill to encourage spending.  I wonder how much cash for clunkers contributed to global warming by encouraging wasteful steel production and wasteful economic activity when perfectly good second hand cars were trashed for no reason whatsoever other than to encourage “spending” and excessive consumption to keep “economic activity” (and, presumably, taxes) staggering on a like a zombie.

Now governments around the world are stealing trillions in savings from pensioners, the middle class, the working poor, and putting it directly into the hands of already-rich bankers.

Surprise, surprise: now the bulk of the populace – the working class and middle class – don’t have the money or the incentive to grow families because of these parasitic insane policies.  Governments are starting to panic about the collapsing tax base and starting to implement equally crazy policies trying to encouraging people to fornicate and populate.

All these problems – excessive consumption, wasteful misallocation of resources, depressions, impoverishment of the general populace, low birth rates – all these have one common cause: government interfering, government tinkering, government taking over the production of money, government banning competition in currencies (gold and silver have been confiscated by governments since the 1930s).

Hey Mr Politician – You screw me, I kill my own babies so they are not screwed by you in future.

That’s effectively what millions of people are doing in Japan and Western Europe.  Through voluntary birth control they are making the active decision not to submit to being financial slaves, and not allowing their unborn children to be corralled into being the next generation of financial slaves.

This is, effectively, “voluntary” financially and economically-induced domestic genocide.

Only in 100 years will people work out what’s happened.  By then it will be too late.

Do you doubt me?

See this article here:

The thing that many of these countries have in common, Japan, Denmark, etc., is a rapidly declining birthrate.

A declining birthrate is disastrous for an economy, particularly for an ageing place like Japan.

Ironically, the oldest person in the world turned 117 years old yesterday—and no surprise that she’s Japanese. In fact, Japan is home to one of the oldest populations in the world and has one of the longest life expectancies.

Curiously they also have one of the largest pension programs in the world. You put all that together and you have fewer and fewer young people paying more and more of their income to support a disproportionately large population of retirees who are living for decades after they stop working.

Each one of these governments is trying to find a solution to fix this unsustainable fiscal problem.

In Denmark they seem to think that people aren’t going on vacation enough. In Japan they think it’s a problem of sexual desire. But in actuality it has everything to do with cost of living.

Month to month, year to year, it’s hard to notice the subtle changes in costs of living and standards of living, but after a long period of time it’s easy to look back and remember how things used to be.

You used to be able to support a family on a single income. You used to be able to afford medical care and higher education.

It’s often said that the greatest expense that someone will have in their life is his or her home. That’s total nonsense.

Now, I’m not saying it’s not worth it, but the biggest expense most people will have is family, and particularly children.

And after years and years of suffering through pitiful, destructive policies that have chronically made people less prosperous, it’s no surprise that they’re coming to the conclusion—you know, we can’t really afford to have a child right now.

There are consequences to conjuring money out of thin air. There are consequences to destructive policies.

So destructive in fact that central bankers and politicians even have the power to make a population disappear.

How ironic that they try to fix their own problem by trying to introduce themselves into our bedrooms.

2014, 2013

13 was an unlucky year for my predictions, I admit.

Gold was down.  Badly.

I’m certainly not surprised and I wasn’t buying this year, so it’s no big deal for me.  But it still hurts to see its largest price drop in 30 years.  Admittedly the last couple of years have seen it go up the most in 30 years.  So it is nothing if not volatile.

Three years into the decade, I still have the following predictions for investment:

1. Gold and Silver.

2. Residential property.  In Sydney, and in pockets of the US.

3. Bitcoin.

4. Selective growth stocks.  Like Freelancer.  Dominos.  Flight Centre.

5. Banks.  Until they blow up.

So it’s steady on banks and fiat money until the whole thing blows up and then it’s farmland and gold.

I can’t tell you when this bubble will burst so a little bit in banks and a little bit in gold and lots in your mortgage is the way to go.

See you in 2014.

Signs of doom

October 23, 2013 Leave a comment

Apparently oarfish washing up on the beach are a sign of earthquakes or “doom”.   It’s more likely overfishing and/or pollution are causes of the death of oarfish – and clearer, more direct signs of “doom”.

Leaving that idiotic myth to one side, I have more direct signs of doom that are screaming at me everyday:

1. QE 4EVER

2. IDIOTS IN POWER

3. CRIMINALS IN BANKING LET OFF THE HOOK

4. FUKUSHIMA, SHOCKING POLLUTION OF THE SEAS, OVERUSE OF WORLD RESOURCES

You don’t need oarfish washing up on beaches to know that we are doomed.

Sad but true for all governments all around the world

The Fable

August 10, 2011 Leave a comment

There was once a peaceful and talented community that had escaped oppression in the Old World and had found paradise in the New World.

They had gold and silver as money, believed in limited government, distrusted banks and financiers and believed those who were most talented should be allowed to get ahead.  They hated shysters and establishment money.  They hated hypocrites and the unGodly.

To celebrate, they decided to design and create a flying ship.  An engineering marvel to excite children and adults alike.

The best qualified engineers were put to work.  The best artisans shaped the aluminium.  The best designers designed the interior.

They launched the floating, flying boat to worldwide amazement and envy.  They themselves envied no one.  They celebrated their talents and flew through the sky.

The prettiest, most qualified girls were chosen as stewardesses.  No one complained.  The bravest, most knowledgeable and skilled pilots were chosen to fly.  They were mostly men.  No one complained.  Everyone respected the crew because everyone knew they were the best – they deserved their place at the head of the plane.  There were some male airline stewards – that’s what they wanted to do and they passed their requirements and everyone was fine with that.  It just so happened that most were women.  There were some female pilots – that what they wanted to do and they passed their requirements and everyone was fine with that.  Because of the integrity of the recruitment and selection process and the rigorous training, everyone knew that the people who came out of that system as qualified employees deserved their role.

One day a passenger saw a small group of desperate screaming people outside the window of the plane.  The group was clinging on for dear life to one of the wings, screaming that they had been attacked and nearly killed.

Some passengers wanted to bring the desperate people in.  “We are a generous people, we have enough, they will die!” they said.

Others said, “They are from the Old World, here to trick us.  Don’t let them in!”

Eventually the naive passengers decided to let them in, over the objections of the cynical ones.

Initially the refugee passengers behaved well.  They were hungry and ate everything they were given.  They seemed hardworking.  They kept to the themselves.

But they were a jealous people.   They resented not being at the front of the plane.  They schemed and planned how to take over the plane – to enslave the very people who had, only a short time before, been compassionate enough to save their lives.  This is what these people did – go from plane to plane screaming they had been persecuted, only to screw over the passengers once they were allowed in.

They convinced a small group of young people to allow paper tokens to be used as money on the plane to buy things.

Once this was allowed, they started printing the tokens themselves.  They started buying off pilots and stewardesses.

Soon they themselves were at the front of the plane.

Everyone still thought the system was just fine.  Everyone thought these people were talented and deserved their roles at the head of the plane. But it wasn’t.  The system of choosing pilots had been corrupted by funny money.

The new pilots were second generation refugees who had no history of plane design and didn’t care about the passengers.  They partied with the pretty stewardesses and allowed a small group of corrupt passengers into the cabin for parties.

Meanwhile the plane flew on autopilot for much longer than it was ever designed to.

The mountains loomed.  The party continued.

Until it didn’t.

And then no qualified pilot knew what to do.

Everyone except a few second-generation refugees who knew the scale of their own corruption (and a few cynical passengers who had not been seduced by their charms) did not think to put their parachutes on.

The refugees were prepared and went the plane was in the early stages of a downward spiral, they suddenly parachuted to next plane to scream that they had been persecuted by the last group of passengers.

The few cynical passengers tried to warn the new plane’s passengers but were ignored.

And so the cycle continued again.
