    21.11.2017 • United KingdomComments Off on Brits Offer Another €20 billion to the EU

    This is the diplomatic opportunity of the century for Britain. Utter humiliation of Europe beckons. Imagine if Theresa May interrupted EastEnders with a national announcement and framed the payout like this.

  • Why You Shouldn’t Count on the Republican Tax Bill

    20.11.2017 • United StatesComments Off on Why You Shouldn’t Count on the Republican Tax Bill

    That is the real meaning of the Republican’s tax reform: It prunes off a branch here and there so that favored groups can enjoy the sunlight. It shakes the leaves… but the shadow of the Deep State is darker than ever.

    BALTIMORE – Have we been too cynical?Yesterday, the House passed its big tax-cut bill. The Dow popped up 187 points on the news. A reporter asked us later: “Will the Dow go to 40,000?”Assuming a tax bill comes through the Senate and out of committee in

  • Europe Uses “Economic Steroids” to Get Ahead of the US

    17.11.2017 • AustraliaComments Off on Europe Uses “Economic Steroids” to Get Ahead of the US

    How did Europe manage to out-flex the US? With natural growth? Heck no. The European Central Bank kept pumping the economic steroids - negative interest rates and money printing - for longer than the US. Europe may well puff out its chest, but all it's done

  • Exposing the Mainstream Lies About Brexit

    10.11.2017 • United KingdomComments Off on Exposing the Mainstream Lies About Brexit

    Supposedly, measly Britain is now stuck in a terrible place. It has to choose between the EU’s trade regime or the US’s. The media calls it “squeezed”. Once again, let’s look at the historical and comparative evidence to why that's completely false.

    30.10.2017 • United KingdomComments Off on This New Fintech Will Eliminate the Financially Illiterate Millennial

    Financial illiteracy in this generation is a huge problem - one that has been largely ignored by the emerging wave of fintech firms. Enter Finimize, a London-based company with a mission to “make finance more accessible”. Its new offering, Finimize

  • This New Technology Is Reforming Modern Finance

    26.10.2017 • United KingdomComments Off on This New Technology Is Reforming Modern Finance

    Many people are talking about this blockchain-based distributed finance technology as being “the next big thing” – and today I’m talking to one of them. Boubacar Dembele, co-founder of Tontyne Finance, is helping to usher in this new reality...

    Boaz Shoshan – Capital and Conflict (United Kingdom) – Well, I found out where all the £50 notes are. Hated by the elites in their war on cash, and ever rarer in day-to-day transactions, I finally found where all these elusive notes have run off

  • Inflation, Government Solvency, Unemployment or Financial Stability?

    12.10.2017 • United KingdomComments Off on Inflation, Government Solvency, Unemployment or Financial Stability?

    Bank of England Governor Carney is prioritising inflation. But tackling inflation sacrifices economic growth. At least debt-financed economic growth. People have borrowed like mad during the decade of absurdly low interest rates. They’d be in trouble if

  • JP Morgan Scandal Exposes Multi-Billion Dollar Fraud

    10.10.2017 • United KingdomComments Off on JP Morgan Scandal Exposes Multi-Billion Dollar Fraud

    JP Morgan found a surprising way of reducing the enormous fines it was struck with back in 2012 and 2013. Most of the fines had to be paid in debt forgiveness to customers instead of cash to the government. The problem is, JP Morgan forgave debt that was no

  • You Can’t Create Wealth – It Falls From Heaven

    04.10.2017 • FranceComments Off on You Can’t Create Wealth – It Falls From Heaven

    We live in a system that has nothing to do with capitalism. Capitalism reinvests honestly-earned profits in competitive markets to make productivity gains, that is, more and better with less effort. And the more productive you choose to be, the better off you

  • Spanish Police Brutalized 2 Million Catalan Voters

    04.10.2017 • SwitzerlandComments Off on Spanish Police Brutalized 2 Million Catalan Voters

    In proportion to population, this is equivalent to the 20 million French citizens who voted for Emmanuel Macron in the second round of the French elections. Explain to me why the claims of Mr. Macron would be more legitimate than the claims of the Catalans?

  • The ‘FOMO’ Pandemic Is Spreading

    02.10.2017 • AustraliaComments Off on The ‘FOMO’ Pandemic Is Spreading

    Don't forget - the investment industry runs on sales... just like any other sector. To generate sales, financial advisors will use emotional triggers like "a happy retirement" or "protection for your children". And it's easy to ignore reason and buy into

  • The New Hedge Against Global Uncertainties

    02.10.2017 • United KingdomComments Off on The New Hedge Against Global Uncertainties

    In times of potential conflict or extreme financial turmoil, investors used to flock to the precious yellow metal for reassurance. Looking for stability, long-term value and a safe haven, it’s been the asset of choice for millennia. Not anymore, it seems.

  • Don’t Let Your Financial Advisers Buy These…

    28.09.2017 • FranceComments Off on Don’t Let Your Financial Advisers Buy These…

    To buy 100-year bonds, you have to be both incompetent and irresponsible. Incompetent not to foresee the turnaround of rates and irresponsible because these buyers aren't risking their own money. No sound-minded biped would put his retirement savings into a

  • Making Life Easier for Migrant Workers

    28.09.2017 • United KingdomComments Off on Making Life Easier for Migrant Workers

    70% of the population of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries don’t earn enough money to open a bank account. Since many of these people come from poorer countries, and remit their earnings back home, any improvement to the remittance process could

    28.09.2017 • United KingdomComments Off on We Are Entering the 7th Inversion – Get Ready!

    The American yield curve is getting dangerously close to inverting. Bloomberg points out “The Treasury yield curve has inverted ahead of the past six downturns going back to the 1960s, including prior to the last two recessions in 2000 and 2006.”

  • The Cycle is Reverting. Don’t Wait. Buy Now!

    27.09.2017 • United KingdomComments Off on The Cycle is Reverting. Don’t Wait. Buy Now!

    Reversion to the mean might win out in the end, but it’s hardly a very powerful force in the short term. It’s behaving like gravity on the moon rather than Earth. A central banker’s nudge sends asset prices flying for quite some time.

  • The Fed Just Admitted to Lying About Inflation

    27.09.2017 • FranceComments Off on The Fed Just Admitted to Lying About Inflation

    The Fed admits that it does not understand anything, that its statistics are cumbersome and that it does not know what causes inflation, but the market does not care!

    Space lord Xenu, frozen corpse spaceships, alien soul rapture, and brainwashing facilities on Earth? How has something so fanciful become an established, well-funded organization? True believers.... not unlike those worshiping Satoshi Nakamoto and his

  • Last Week, Toys “R” Us Went Broke

    22.09.2017 • United StatesComments Off on Last Week, Toys “R” Us Went Broke

    As usual, mainstream analysts are telling us that the bankruptcy was “expected” and that the brick-and-mortar toy retailer was just “another victim of Amazon.com.” That is not untrue. But there is an important nuance…

  • Putin’s Last Order Could Mean the End of the Dollar.

    22.09.2017 • FranceComments Off on Putin’s Last Order Could Mean the End of the Dollar.

    As China, Russia, and other major economic players push to substitute the dollar for their own currency as their trade currency, be prepared for gold to take the place of middleman.

    “You can’t have a business where people can invent a currency out of thin air and think the people buying it are really smart. It’s worse than tulip bulbs, OK?” - JP Morgan CEO

    14.09.2017 • United KingdomComments Off on Central Bankers Are Running Out of Space

    Their ammunition in the war on deflation is buying stuff. But there isn’t much stuff left to buy. At least not without reaching the limits of common sense, the law, economic law and credibility.
