David Bossie Blasts Brennans Trump Attack, 1887 The Still Report

- Nobel Gold: Protect Your Money With Gold - Click Here- https://goo.gl/kx2yzW Or Call - 877-646-5347 Good morning, Im still reporting on: David Bossie Blasts Brennans Trump Attack, 1887 Synopsis: John Brennan, former Director the CIA who, while serving as CIA station chief in a certain wealthy nation, converted to a certain group whom I cannot name on this channel lest I face the possibility of a variety of anti-free-speech sanctions, went on CNN and criticized President Trumps comments about Russian President Putin while meeting with foreign leaders overseas. First of all, had private citizen Donald Trump criticized something President Obama said about his talks with a foreign leader while traveling overseas, of course, Brennan would be the first to jump onto the airwaves and talk about the long-standing tradition of not openly criticizing an American president while he was traveling abroad. But, of course, when a non-deep-state president travels, all normal rules of civility are ignored. [insert] David Bossie, former Trump Deputy Campaign Manager, blistered little Mr. Brennans bottom. [insert] I dont know the exact entity for whom Brennan works today, but one thing is for sure, he and his funders are not working to make America great again. Im still reporting from the one-time free speech capitol of the world. Good day.

Facebook's Billionaire Immortal Overlords, 1885 The Still Report

- Jeevy Computers: Move up to business-level computer protection. 800-844-8613 http://jeevycomputers.com/pcs/ Good evening, Im still reporting on: Facebook's Billionaire Immortal Overlords, 1885 Synopsis: Good evening, Im still reporting on Big Brother. Sorry, but Ive been on travel for the last 4 days. Have you ever wondered how all the social media titans can be so far left of center that supporting simple, self-governance by we, the people is today seen as an outmoded and destructive cultural fad of the days of yore? Academically, my knee-jerk response was control. Control of the population means maximum profits for them, and some form of slavery for us. I mean, the rule of law was not built for the uber-rich; it was created to protect we, the little people from the tyranny of the uber-rich. The entire concept of representative governance is now threatened by media-approved creations like Antifa and the Deep State ministry of propaganda better known as the NYT, WaPo, CNN-MSNBC axis. Not since the Robber Barrons ruled the East Coast over a century ago, has the rule of law been so completely disregarded as has been the case since the Clintons, Bushs and Obamas came to the Beltway. But understanding how they thought was no more than a theory, unbacked by hard evidence until a few days ago. Last Thursday, the mindset of these noveau-riche, tech-titans was put on shocking display by Tucker Carlson: [insert] For me that answers a lot of questions. And thats why I say that Im still reporting from the one-time free speech capitol of the world. Good day.

Protect Your Savings With Gold: ECB Propose End To Deposit Protection Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert

Protect Your Savings With Gold: ECB Propose End To Deposit Protection
New ECB paper proposes covered deposits should be replaced to allow for more flexibility
Fear covered deposits may lead to a run on the banks
Savers should be reminded that a banks word is never its bond and to reduce counterparty exposure
Physical gold enable savers to stay out of banking system and reduce exposure to bail-ins

EU deposit protection scheme

It is the opinion of the European Central Bank that the deposit protection scheme is no longer necessary:

covered deposits and claims under investor compensation schemes should be replaced by limited discretionary exemptions to be granted by the competent authority in order to retain a degree of flexibility.

To translate the legalese jargon of the ECB bureaucrats this could mean that the current 100,000 (85,000) deposit level currently protected in the event of a bail-in may soon be no more.

But worry not fellow savers as the ECB is fully aware of the uproar this may cause so they have been kind enough to propose that:

during a transitional period, depositors should have access to an appropriate amount of their covered deposits to cover the cost of living within five working days of a request.

So thats a relief, youll only need to wait five days for some competent authority to deem what is an appropriate amount of your own money for you to have access to in order eat, pay bills and get to work.

The above has been taken from an ECB paper published on 8 November 2017 entitled on revisions to the Union crisis management framework.

Its 58 pages long, the majority of which are proposed amendments to the Union crisis management framework and the current text of the Capital Requirements Directive (CRD).

Its pretty boring reading but there are some key snippets which should be raising a few alarms. It is evidence that once again a central bank can keep manipulating situations well beyond the likes of monetary policy. It is also a lesson for savers to diversify their assets in order to reduce their exposure to counterparty risks.

A Series

25 Fiscal Lessons

Learned over the course of 25 years, paving the way toward a better economic future.

Read the Lessons

Individuals with the least wealth or income potential are the most dependent on government programs for support. Thus, when policymakers talk about reforming entitlement programs, many observers are concerned about the potential impact on these vulnerable groups. The good news is that there are plenty of responsible ways to reduce costs without unduly burdening beneficiaries.

Nearly all entitlement programs have conditions or formulas that take into account a beneficiary's income when determining the level of benefits or the amount of subsidy from the government. Many programs only provide benefits to individuals who have low incomes and/or low levels of wealth; these programs are known as means-tested. Those that are available to all, but with varying degrees of subsidy based on income, are considered universal entitlements.

Social Security, the biggest program in the federal budget, is not means-tested. Beneficiaries with higher lifetime incomes receive larger monthly benefits, although beneficiaries with lower lifetime incomes have a greater proportion of their earnings replaced by Social Security when they retire. This makes it a universal entitlement program with income-related benefits.

Social Security benefits could be reduced for those with high incomes during their working years or in retirement, providing large budgetary s...

Don't Mix Politics and Climate Science Mises Wire

By: Agnieszka I. Ponka
smokestack.PNG

The widely understood libertarian environment has lately published a multitude of very eloquent articles about how to approach the global warming issue, what to think about "established science," and whether or not to be "agnostic." Those materials, however well written, fail to see the core of the scientific method  which is again understandable since their authors have been immersed in a different kind of science that is, social science. The word "agnostic" does not fit in here, however. One can be an "agnostic" only towards what is untestable. But we can test the temperature in which water freezes, we can test how poisons affect human body, and we can test how certain layers of the atmosphere affect solar radiation. Those results are necessarily verified by nature itself. They leave no place for even the subtlest "polishing" of the results so that they fit the assumption  and if what climatologists say seem to leave a different impression, it is either due to the imperfections of human language or due to the fact that, sadly, they already tend to incorporate political agendas into their scientific commentaries. Let us note here however, that the carbon isotope 12C is way too primitive a structure to be plotting for worldwide socialism. (The ratio between 12C and 13C in the atmosphere serves as a geochemical argument for anthropogenic global warming).

Unfortunately, since global warming serves the government as justification for their plans for greater control of society, we are doomed to mix politics and science where it should never be mixed. This may be one of the symptoms of the declining level of public discussion. Again unfortunately, the reaction in which we rebel against our preconceived ideas is perfectly natural. Here it is linked, however, with the difficulty of distinguishing between scientific information and political beliefs. The question "what is going on?" is different than "what should be done?" If I provide a geochemical argument for manmade global warming, it does not automatically mean that I am an interventionist. After all, a lot of basic research underlying modern atmospheric physics is as old as 200 years  but the physics is not accused of bias, since back then no government was plotting to use it as a pretext for public policy. 
 

The magnitude of emotions linked with this issue is unsurprising given that it may affect all humanity in a relatively short time. I do have an impression though that those emotions stem f...

Singtel Group first in Asia ex-Japan to have carbon reduction targets approved by Science Based Targets initiative Eco-Business

Singapore, 13 November 2017 - The Singtel Group today announced that it is the first company in Asia ex-Japan to have its carbon reduction targets approved by the Science Based Targets initiative. A collaboration between CDP, World Resources Institute, World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and the United Nations Global Compact, the initiative recognises organisations aligned with the COP21 Paris Agreement to keep the rise in global temperature below 2C. The Singtel Group is aiming to cut absolute Scope 1 and 2 direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions across its own Singapore and Australian operations by 42% from its 2015 base-year by 2030. It will also work with suppliers to reduce Scope 3 third-party emissions by 30% over the same period. Mr Andrew Buay, Singtel's Vice President of Group Sustainability said, "Climate change is a global issue which requires all of us to take action and work towards a low-carbon economy. We are committed to minimising our environmental impact and building operational resilience. The Group's science-based targets represent an aggressive reduction, especially when factoring in the expected increase in electricity consumption by our Singapore and Australian businesses. This comes as we continue to expand our networks to accommodate the explosion in data usage by customers and as more enterprise customers outsource their ICT operations to us." "While we are still reviewing ways in which we can achieve these aggressive goals, whether it is looking at operational efficiencies, new technologies or purchasing renewable energy, we will work hard towards our targets," he added. Mr Alexander Liedke, Manager of Sustainable Business & Markets at WWF and member of the Science Based Targets initiative steering committee said, "We congratulate Singtel on being the first Asian company outside of Japan to have their industry-leading science-based targets approved. This validation by our team sends a powerful message to their industry peers and the business community in Asia and beyond. Setting science-based targets is a clear way of future-proofing growth in the transition to a low-carbon economy." The Singtel Group has anchored its environmental sustainability strategy around four pillars to achieve the smallest environmental footprint. These are climate change and carbon reduction, sustainable supply chain management, product stewardship and stakeholder engagement. As part of the Group's environmental roadmap, it has set carbon reduction goals aligned with science-based targets methodology. This is also in preparation for the new reporting recommendations made by the international Task Force for Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) on climate change risks. The Group was one of the first companies globally in June 2017 to endorse the TCFD recommendations when it was first released. The Group's efforts to improve reporting transparency, reduce carbon emissions and mitigate the business risks of climate change have been r...

Milk Perceptions - A Study of Milk Consumption Patterns in Singapore Eco-Business

Milk Perceptions - A Study of Milk Consumption Patterns in Singapore is a first-of-its-kind study on the key drivers and barriers of milk consumption amongst adult Singaporeans. The research aims to identify the gaps and solutions to improve the nutrition and healthcare outcomes among Singaporeans. Led by applied nutrition expert Dr Kalpana Bhaskaran from Temasek Polytechnic, the study found that Singaporeans are missing out on the nutritional benefits of milk by not drinking a glass a day. This low level of consumption is further compounded by an ignorance of the nutritional benefits of milk.

The dystopia of Malcolm Harris Marginal REVOLUTION

He is the author of the new and interesting Kids These Days: Human Capital and the Making of Millennials.  Most of the book is about millennials as the generation that invests in itself.  Towards the end he lays out a somewhat separate discussion of what a future dystopia might look like, I am very briefly summarizing his seven points, noting that some of the headings are my rewordings:

1. The equitization of human capital.  This will start out as win-win transactions, but eventually will become subprime human capital.

2. The professionalization of childhood.  Kids will start preparing for fairly specific and very locked-in careers at quite young ages, and find it difficult to deviate later on.

3. Climate privilege.  The ability to live somewhere insulated from most of the costs of climate change will become a major marker of class and privilege.

*The Impossible Revolution* Marginal REVOLUTION

The subtitle is Making Sense of the Syrian Tragedy, and the author is leading Syrian intellectual Yassin Al-Haj Saleh.  Imagine having a well-written book, totally conversant in the arguments of the social sciences, that set out to explain the Syrian tragedy to an intelligent reader.  Here is one typical bit:

The extremely decentralized nature of the Syrian revolution stemmed from nearly half a century of regime-enforced seclusion and isolation of Syrian society.  It was also occasioned by the regimes forcible domination over all social interaction and so a divide-and-conquer strategy was used by the Assadist oligarchy to confront the revolution right from the start.  Such strategies made any protest activities in central squares obviously impossible because this would have permitted the gathering of Syrian societys diverse groups, and perhaps would have also allowed a degree of discussion, exchange of opinions, and general building of trust.  Keeping this in mind, it becomes clear that the extreme, forced fragmentation of the revolutions activities is an additional factor that has facilitated the spread of the nihilist synthesis of complete distrust and a propensity for violence.

Where else can you find a book that compares and contrasts ISIS nihilism to 19th century Russian nihilism, or Sultanic principles in Syria vs. Lebanon?:

Lebanon is a neo-Sultanic state without a Sultan, and should either fill the gap and assign a Sultan with a well-developed general security shield, or turn the page of the sectarian patronage system and evolve toward a state of citizenship and equality.  In the context of present interconnections between the two Sultanates, Lebanon is the incomplete one with a large security branch (i.e. Hezbollah) that is leaning more towards Sultanism, and the complete model is currently beset by a revolution.

Strongly recommended.  And as the author himself suggests in closing: It is always necessary to demystify sectarian fraud

You can order the book here, though please note I do not sympathize with the authors career or overall views in many respects.  He was a political prisoner from 1980-1996.  ...

Mideast Turmoil: Follow the Oil, Follow the Money oftwominds-Charles Hugh Smith

In this scenario, time is running out for Saudi Arabia's free-spending royalty and state-- and for all the other free-spending oil exporters.
While there are numerous dynamics at work in the turmoil roiling Saudi Arabia and by extension, the Mideast, one way to cut to the chase is to follow the oil, follow the money. Correspondent B.D. recently posited a factor that has been largely overlooked in the geopolitical / fate-of-the-petrodollar discussions:
Perhaps the core dynamic is a technical one of diminished oil production. Here is Bart's commentary:

Why Americas Retail Apocalypse Could Accelerate Even More In 2018 The Economic Collapse

Is the retail apocalypse in the United States about to go to a whole new level?  That is a frightening thing to consider, because the truth is that things are already quite bad.  We have already shattered the all-time record for store closings in a single year and we still have the rest of November and December to go.  Unfortunately, it truly does appear that things will get even worse in 2018, because a tremendous amount of high-yield retail debt is coming due next year.  In fact, Bloomberg is reporting that the amount of high-yield retail debt that will mature next year is approximately 19 times larger than the amount that matured this year

Just $100 million of high-yield retail borrowings were set to mature this year, but that will increase to $1.9 billion in 2018, according to Fitch Ratings Inc. And from 2019 to 2025, it will balloon to an annual average of almost $5 billion. The amount of retail debt considered risky is also rising. Over the past year, high-yield bonds outstanding gained 20 percent, to $35 billion, and the industrys leveraged loans are up 15 percent, to $152 billion, according to Bloomberg data.

Even worse, this will hit as a record $1 trillion in high-yield debt for all industries comes due over the next five years, according to Moodys.

Can you say debt bomb?

For those of you that are not familiar with these concepts, high-yield debt is considered to be the riskiest form of debt.  Retailers all over the nation went on a tremendous debt binge for years, and many of those loans never should have been made.  Now that debt is g...

Popocatepetl Violently Erupts, And Authorities Warn A Bigger Eruption Could Threaten More Than 20 Million People In Mexico City The Economic Collapse

Mt. Popocatepetl is one of the most important volcanoes on the entire planet, and yet most Americans are not familiar with it.  In ancient Aztec, Popocatepetl means smoking mountain, but to the locals the 5,426-meter-high volcano is simply known as Don Goyo.  A catastrophic eruption of Don Goyo would be a nightmare scenario for the more than 20 million people living in the Mexico City metropolitan area, and that is why authorities are watching Mt. Popocatepetl very closely at the moment.  In fact, we are being warned that the eruption that just took place could be a precursor to an even larger eruption

Chilling footage showing the violent eruption emerged online amid fears there could be more.

A huge plume of smoke blasted three kilometres in to the air from the summit of Popocatepetl after a series explosions over the course of 24 hours.

Surrounding towns were blanketed with ash and debris and authorities are now warning a bigger eruption could threaten the 23.6million inhabitants in the Mexican capital, located just 35 miles (56km) away.

This latest eruption actually resulted in what is known as a volcanotectonic earthquake.  Such quakes are caused by the movement of magma, and scientists are very concerned about what that might mean.

Don Goyo has been spewing ash regularly since early this month, and at this point local residents are being told to remain indoors

Locals have been warned to avoid outdoor act...

Why the Stars Fall Stories by umair haque on Medium

A Story About Us

One night, a young mother sat silhouetted at the edge of a field, a little child alone next to her.

Help me, she cried, bitter grief rising in her, I do not know how to mother this child! It was a lament that overflowed with confusion, rage, fear, with the agony of helplessness, for the young woman had herself been abandoned first by her own mother, and then her lover, and then her family, which is why she sat here bereft at the edge of a field, only feeling a searing pain beyond even the loneliness that had always ached in her.

Now, this night, the stars themselves were falling, streaking down from the sky, in great rivers of burning tears. And the child, sitting by himself, hearing his mothers cry, who, even though he was just a babe that could not even speak, still understood his mother perfectly well. Yet because his mind had not yet been filled up with the foolish ways and words of old men, he only looked up at the falling stars, and thought this:

The waves fall, roaring, into the ocean.

The clouds fall, drop by yearning drop, into the sea.

The trees fall, leaf by leaf, until, at last the soil buries them again.

The wind falls, from the soaring mountain, into the deepest valley.

The planets themselves fall through the void.

The galaxies fall, too, just like dust spinning through endless night.

All things in being are only just this: a fall.

The mother, who was weeping bitterly now, hid her head between her knees, and shook, raggedly. The child looked at her, still sitting alone, her agony pouring into him, shaking his little heart like an earthquake, too. And he thought only this:

And we, just like all beings, are only a fall, too. But we fall even truer and deeper the stars, the waves, the rain, the wind.

My mother does not know how to hold me. Now there is, in her, in me, confusion and loneliness and pain, as wide as the ocean, as endless as the night, as hot as the falling stars. And because I am only a little child, my arms are the smallest things of all, and what can a little child do with those arms to stop anything in being, everything in being, from being what it is, which is only falling?

We fall from the inside, first, before we, too, at last stumble and stagger and fall, just like all things.

His mind felt like it was on fire, and he strained to explain all this to his mother, for perhaps then he could if not soothe her, then at least explain to her, but only little coos and warbles came out, not matter how desperately or furiously he struggled.

And now he began to be afraid. Was this all there was, then, to what people called life, just falling? He frowned, for a moment, trying to puzzle it all out, and then, suddenly, a question struck him like lightning:

But why are all things only ever...

Mother Teresa kept Vatican Bank afloat Follow The Money

https://www.rt.com/news/409393-mother-teresa-bank-account/

Mother Teresa had such huge savings in the Vatican Bank that if she had withdrawn her funds the institution could have defaulted, according to an Italian journalist.

Gianluigi Nuzzis newly-released book, The Original Sin, digs into the Vaticans darkest secrets and details how, when American archbishop Paul Marcinkus was appointed president of the Vatican Bank, Mother Teresa was believed to have by far the most cashed up account.

If only Mother Teresa had closed the accounts or transferred them, the institute would have risked default, Nuzzi writes, La Presse reports.

The Italian author went on to say how the discovery of Mother Teresas bank account is proof of Marcinkus long-standing meddling in Vatican affairs.

There is a power block in the Vatican that obstructs P...

FSB considers financial stability implications of artificial intelligence and machine learning Follow The Money

http://www.fsb.org/2017/11/fsb-considers-financial-stability-implications-of-artificial-intelligence-and-machine-learning/

The Financial Stability Board (FSB) today published a report that considers the financial stability implications of the growing use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning in financial services.

Financial institutions are increasingly using AI and machine learning in a range of applications across the financial system including to assess credit quality, to price and market insurance contracts and to automate client interactions. Institutions are optimising scarce capital with AI and machine learning techniques, as well as back-testing models and analysing the market impact of trading large positions. Meanwhile, hedge funds, broker-dealers and other firms are using it to find signals for higher uncorrelated returns and to optimise trade execution. Both public and private sector institutions may use these technologies for regulatory compliance, surveillance, data quality assessment and fraud detection.

The FSBs analysis reveals a number of potential benefits and risks for financial stability that should be monitored as the technology is adopted in the coming years and as more data b...

Federal Appeals Court Agrees to Accept Evidence for Dzhokhar Tsarnaevs Innocence

Paul Craig Roberts

On October 26 attorney John Remington Graham explained on this website why he suspects that the trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the surving brother of the alleged Boston Marathon bombing, is a case of judicial murder.
https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2017/10/26/case-judicial-murder/

He wrote: As a last hurrah as a lawyer, I recently filed a motion in behalf of three American citizens before the First Circuit in the appeal of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, asking that they be recognized as friends of the court, so they can show that, on the basis of facts actually of record before the federal district court in Boston, Dzhokhar did not detonate a pressure-cooker bomb on Boylston Street on April 15, 2013, as charged in the indictment. The government and major media of the United States have created such confusion and libelled the accused so foully that it is impossible for the average citizen relying on newspapers to imagine that Dzhokhar is innocent. Major media waged a lock-step propaganda campaign against Mr. Tsarnaev.

On November 11, Mr. Graham informed me that the Federal Appeals Court for the First Circuit granted his intervention of amicus curiae. This means that the Appeals Court will accept evidence that Dzhokhar is innocenta case not made by Dzhokhars appointed attorney at the trial.

Capital As a Form of Charity Mises Wire

By: F.A. Harper
repair.PNG

Tools as a Form of Charity

Both fact and logic seem to me to support the view that savings invested in privately owned economic tools of production amount to an act of charity. And further, I believe it to be as a type the greatest economic charity of all.

By economic tools of production I mean, of course, things with exchange value trucks, factories, railroads, stores which assist human effort in the production of other items of economic worth.

Does saving and investment in these tools qualify as charity? Does it meet the three tests of an act of charity?

The first test is whether there has been a transfer of privately owned things having economic worth. It is true that when one saves and invests in a tool which he uses in production, although he retains title to the tool, most of the extra production which the tool makes possible passes on to others, as we shall see. For that reason the first requisite of an act of charity seems to be met as a certain consequence of saving and investment in tools. It is this feature of the creation of privately owned capital which is its charitable aspect.

The second test of charity is that the transfer of economic benefits shall be voluntary. Did anybody steal anything? Was anybody coerced? So long as the tools are privately owned and their use functions in a free market, the process has to be voluntary for everybody involved. But state ownership or control of tools, as is common in Russia, violates this requirement.

The third test of charity is anonymity. The charitable feature of savings and tools arises from the extra production that flows from it as a consequence and which goes in large degree to others than the one who saved and invested in the tool to others than the owner of the tool. It is anonymous because the beneficiaries do not know its source. Most of them do not even know how they are benefiting from it at all. They do not know this because they have been victimized by a thorough saturation with the surplus value theory. They even think of themselves as being victimized by these capitalists who own the tools they are using.

One can easily test from his own experience the anonymity of the charity that flows from savings and investment in tools. If one will list all the economic items he consumes or enjoys in a day, the test is to try in each instance to name specifically all the persons whose savings and investment made the item possible. Most of us, I dare say, could not name even one person responsible for an item we use and enjoy. This illustrates the anonymity of the millions of unknown persons responsible for the things we enjoy.

So savings and the tools of pr...

GEs ComeuppancePoster Boy For Financial Engineering Run Amok David Stockman's Contra Corner

GE is taking a pounding this morning for cutting its dividend by 50%, and we'd say its about time for both. That is, its unaffordable and unsustainable disgorgement of cash into the stock market should have been drastically curtailed long ago. Likewise, even a quasi-honest stock market would have severely punished the gong show of dumbkopf M&A, financial engineering and crony capitalist sleaze that occurred under former CEO Jeff Immelt's 17 year reign.

Will America Survive Washington? Paul Craig Roberts PaulCraigRoberts.org

Will America Survive Washington?

Paul Craig Roberts

In recent columns posted on my website, I brought attention to two dramatic and dangerous developments between the two major nuclear powers.

One was the public statement of the deputy commander of the Russian militarys Operation Command at a recent Moscow security conference. Lt. Gen. Viktor Poznihir, Deputy Chief of the Main Operations Directorate of the Russian Armed Forces, stated at the Moscow International Security Conference that the Operations Command of the Russian General Staff has concluded that Washington is preparing a nuclear first strike on Russia. https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2017/05/11/are-you-ready-to-die/

The other is the report that the US is collecting Russian DNA for the US Air Force weapons laboratory, the implication being that the US intends to research if a bio-weapon can be created that only targets Russians. https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2017/11/01/washingtons-barbarity-reaches-new-heights/

As far as I can ascertain, neither of these startling developments were reported in the US media. One would think that the White House would have been on the telephone to Putin giving reassurances that the US is not planning a surprise nuclear attack on Russia. One would think that the publication of US contracts for Russian DNA and Putins public statement about it would have immediately resulted in President Trump ordering a halt to the Russian DNA project.

But not a peep.

Instead, the morons ruling us are content to send two back-to-back messages to Russia that we intend to wipe out Russia.

Can you imagine anything more reckless and irresponsible than to convince a nuclear power that you have targeted them for destruction?

Where are the American and European media? The presstitutes are busy at work repeating endlessly the military/security complex and DNCs lies about Russiagate. Alternatively, the presstitutes are focused on what the NFLs national anthem policy will be.

We are experiencing the total failure of the leadership of a country.

While threatening Russia, the military/security complex and the presstitutes are simultaneously creating an ominous Russophobia among the US and European populations. https://www.globalresearch.ca/nato-tells-europe-prepare-for-a-russian-invasion-who-are-the-most-dangerous-russians-in-the-world-today/5617972

The working rich are driving income inequality, not the rentiers Marginal REVOLUTION

Anti-Piketty:

Have passive rentiers replaced the working rich at the top of the U.S. income distribution? Using administrative data linking 10 million firms to their owners, this paper shows that private business owners who actively manage their firms are key for top income inequality. Private business income accounts for most of the rise of top incomes since 2000 and the majority of top earners receive private business incomemost of which accrues to active owner-managers of mid-market firms in relatively skill-intensive and unconcentrated industries. Profit falls substantially after premature owner deaths. Top-owned firms are twice as profitable per worker as other firms despite similar risk, and rising profitability without rising scale explains most of their profit growth. Together, these facts indicate that the working rich remain central to rising top incomes in the twenty-first century.

That is from a new paper by Matthew Smith, Danny Yagan, Owen Zidar, and Eric Zwick, via the excellent Kevin Lewis.

Forget the Bogus Republican Reform: Heres What Real Tax Reform Would Look Like Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert

As has been widely noted, the Republicans proposed tax reform is not only just more BAU (business as usual, i.e. cut taxes for the wealthy), its also not real reform. At best, its just another iteration of D.C. policy tweaks packaged for PR purposes as reform.

You want real tax reform? This is what real tax reform would look like:

1. Shred the entire 2,700 page tax code and replace it with a 25-page code. As I explained in The Fetid Swamp of Tax Reform (November 10, 2017), the 2,700 page current tax code is a complexity thicket designed to hide tax breaks and subsidies for big political donors.

Politicos give lip service to simplifying the tax code for PR purposes, but no politico actually wants radical simplification because this would eliminate the biggest grab-bag of political favors available to pass out to big donors.

Though radical simplification is politically impossible, its the first and most important real reform.

2. Replace the entire convoluted mess of income tax for the bottom 99.5% with transaction taxes collected at the point of transaction. A transaction tax is similar to a value-added tax (VAT) or sales tax, but its radically different in key ways: a transaction tax is levied on financial transactions, not just sales.

A transaction tax would be levied on every high-frequency stock trade, every loan that was sold, every financial transaction anywhere in the U.S. or any transaction anywhere in the world involving a U.S.-based entity or asset.

Since the vast majority of financial transactions are executed on behalf of banks, corporations and wealthy individuals, a transaction tax would naturally collect more taxes from those at the top of the wealth-power pyramid. The transaction tax could be very modest because it would be collected on billions of transactionseverything from stock trades to purchases to loan payments.

A transaction tax couldnt be dodged by moving assets to offshore tax havens or renouncing citizenship. The model here is property taxes, which are collected regardless of who owns the property, where they do their banking, their citizenship, etc. The entity that owns the property must pay the tax, or forfeit ownership via an eventual auctioning off of the p...

Why Populism Isn't Going Away Mises Wire

By: Ronald-Peter Stferle
trump_1.PNG

The vote for Brexit and the election of Donald Trump has baffled the main stream and the establishment. Most market participants and observers didn't believe ex ante that they were possible, and as a result were completely surprised when the unexpected happened. Ever since the term populism has become socio-politically relevant in modern-day public discourse. Google Trends illustrates that there was a veritable explosion in search queries for the term populism last year:

Source: Google

But, populism  regardless of its political flavor  merely represents a symptom. The generally surprising results were consequences of the economical erosion of the past years Although there are idiosyncrasies in every country that foster the rise of populist movements, the ailing foundation of the economy provides the fertile soil and is the major driver of people's dissatisfaction and the associated voting decisions. To assert that populism is the reason for this process of political change is in our opinion far too simplistic. An analysis of stating that economic erosion is responsible for the rise in populism is supported by by a McKinsey study, which examines the trend in real household incomes in 25 industrialized nations.1 McKinsey arrived at the striking conclusion that real incomes of 65 to 70 percent of households in developed countries either stagnated or even declined between 2005 and 2014. The following chart illustrates the trend in household incomes in selected countries. (The y axis shows the percentage of households with stnating or declining income between 2005 and 2014): 

Source: McKinsey, Incrementum AG

 

The momentousness of this study becomes obvious when considering that the object under review are 25 industrialized countries with a population of more than 800 million people, generating 50 percent of global GDP.

Moreover, numerous studies show that the opportunities and expectations of coming generations to earn more than their parents have worsened significantly. While the probability that members of the baby boomer generation would earn more than their parents was 62%, this probability has declined to 50% for generations born since 1980....

The Cartel Is In A Box With Gold & Silver Prices But Dont Start Celebrating Yet Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert

Both gold and silver ended last week with bad omens. Lets look at those omens as it pertains to the problem the cartel has had for months: Open Interest In silver, open interest needs to come down:

If it comes down this week, the cartel will have painted the chart rather bearishly in the short-term.  If we drop below $16.59, then we will have put in another lower-low on the charts, and if open interest is going to come down, it looks like silver very well might get below that price level.

Gold looks relatively smoother on the chart, but the open interest is still too high:

The key level to hold on to is $1263. A drop below that price will again have painted the chart very bearishly. One has to wonder, how much lower either gold or silver could drop before the dip is bought, however? If the dip is bought after the spec flush-out, open interest will literally shoot back up again as the cartel will attempt to issue as much paper as possible to contain the rally.

This really highlights the fact that the cartel is stuck in a box. They are having the darnedest time flushing out the longs, but at the same time, once they do, the longs will come right back in. It goes to show that it really is impossible to contain laws of economics, and while they have been able to for some years, it is now nearly at the breaking point.

Anybody who read the India Cash Ban Anniversary post would have seen this, but this seems appropriate right about now.

Heres the trouble the cartel is having in keeping the prices of gold and silver held back:

 

In fact, this difficulty is showing...

Hey GOP, Want to Cut the Burden of Government? Cut Spending. Mises Wire

By: Ryan McMaken
cashgrab.PNG

Washington, DC is currently in the middle of a the "tax reform" process, which as Jeff Deist, points out, is " a con, and a shell game." Tax reform proposals, Deist continues "always evade and obscure the real issue, which is the total cost  financial, compliance, and human  taxes impose on society."

Tax reform is really about which interest groups can modify the current tax code to better suit their own parochial interests. The end result is not a lessened tax burden overall, and thus does nothing to boost real savings, real wealth creation, or real economic growth. It's just yet another government method of rewarding powerful groups while punishing the less powerful ones. 

Not surprisingly then, the news that's coming out of Washington about tax reform demonstrates that the reforms we're seeing are only shifting around the tax burden without actually lessening it. The central scam at the heart of the matter is that DC politicians are more or less devoted to "revenue neutral" tax reforms. That means if one group sees a tax cut, then another group will lose a deduction, or even see an actual increase in tax rates. 

This is why many middle class families may be looking at a higher tax bill. David Stockman explains

[O]n the eve of the House Ways and Means committee vote on the tax bill----which will then be barricaded by a no amendments "closed rule" when it goes to the full house-----the smoking gun is already apparent. By 2027 (after the temporary $300 adult tax credit gimmick expires and all provisions of the Brady mark become fully effective), the middle quintile US family ( about 30 million filers between $55,000 and $93,000 of AGI) would find itself in a crap shoot.

That is, roughly two-thirds of filers (20 million units) would realize a $1,070 per year tax cut, while another 31% (roughly 9.5 million filers) would experience a $1,150 tax increase!

That's a whole lot of rolling dice----depending upon family size, sources of income and previous use of itemized deductions.

But here's the thing: For the heart of the middle class as a whole----30 million filers in the aforementioned income brackets---the statistical average tax cut would amount to $6.15 per week.

That's right. Two Starbucks cappuccinos and a banana!

116 Internet Shutdowns Show Why Physical Gold Is Ultimate Protection Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert

internet shutdown

UNESCO is warning that the number of internet shutdowns is increasing worldwide. According to Statista.com when reporting data provided by digital rights platform accessnow.org, internet access has been curbed 116 times in 30 countries since January 2016.

Internet shutdown: An intentional disruption of Internet or electronic communications, rendering them inaccessible or effectively unusable, for a specific population or within a location, often to exert control over the flow of information. Access Now.

One question that so many ask when first hearing about bitcoin is what if the internet stops working? Bitcoin and crypto proponents scoff and point out that there is no singular off button i.e. it would be near impossible.

According to father of the internet Tim Berners-Lee, this is true:

The way the internet is designed is very much as a decentralised system. At the moment, because countries connect to each other in lots of different ways, there is no one off switch, there is no central place where you can turn it off.

Try telling that to the one billion plus people in India who have experienced over 54 internet shutdowns in the last two years.

Or those in Egypt who on January 27th 2011 could no longer get online as the government shut down the internet in response to the pre-Arab Spring protests.

Chinese, Russian cities move closer to visa-free travel The BRICS Post

Both Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping have strongly endorsed people exchanges [Xinhua]


Answering the call for greater intercultural exchanges between citizens of BRICS countries at the last Summit in Xiamen, Chinese and Russian cities are examining ways to establish visa-free travel between them.

On Monday, Chinese local media reported that the authorities were looking to scrap visa requirements between the cities of Heihe in northeast Chinas Heilongjiang Province and Blagoveshchensk, capital of Russias Amur State, which are separated by the Amur or Heilong River.

The new visa-free measure is designed not only to increase exchanges between peoples, boosting cooperation and friendship but also end the hour-long queues tourists from both sides often had to endure along the 750-meter border crossing dividing the two cities.

Both China and Russia have been negotiating a deal to build a bridge over the river.

Authorities from both sides say the bridge is expected to open in 2019 and will greatly enhance transportation of goods and people in the region known as the China-Mongolia-Russia economic corridor.

Currently, people crossing the border have to use river ferries.

It seems that the revolutionary part could be an attempt to put intergenerational fairness front and centre. Noises suggest that a big offer on house-building will be at the heart of this. And rightly so the rising share of income taken up by housing costs is a major drain on young adults living standards in comparison to their predecessors at the same age. Bold housing offers dont come cheap though, and may require a brave tweak to his fiscal rules.

Beyond a welcome housing focus, the Chancellor will likely deploy the classic tools of Budget-building tax and benefit changes. The problem is that while we are very good at assessing tax and welfare choices from the perspectives of rich and poor, we are not at all accustomed to viewing them through a generational lens. Thats been a key task of our ongoing Intergenerational Commission.

Doing so is not as simple as splitting the spoils between young and old either. We should also pay attention to the distribution of outcomes within different generations, on the basis that intra-cohort inequality shows signs of rising. The last thing we want to see is the Chancellor hitting poor pensioners or lavishing tax breaks on rich youngsters in the name of intergenerational fairness. New Resolution Foundation analysis demonstrates how he can avoid this pitfall.

Take the suggestion put to him by one of his MPs to lower the basic rate of income tax for adults under 30 to 15 per cent. While this is clearly very well-targeted from an age perspective, the gains are heavily concentrated at the top. More than half of th...

Federal Prosecutors Are Running Amok Mises Wire

By: William L. Anderson
1280px-Robert_Mueller,_2012.jpg

It is hard to know where to begin regarding the charges against Paul Manafort, the former campaign director for Donald Trumps successful presidential bid, but having read the indictments and knowing some background about both the case and the investigation, I cannot say it is exactly a high point of American justice. In fact, when former FBI chief Robert Mueller first was appointed as a special prosecutor to look into the allegations that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia the tilt the election to Trumps favor, I feared his investigation would turn out to be an assault on the Constitution and Mueller has done nothing to dispel those fears.

I have included a link to the actual indictment, and while federal indictments can be a bit mind-numbing to read, nonetheless I have found nothing in it that relates to the original reason the Mueller probe was created: alleged Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. Instead, it is clear that Mueller engaged in a legal fishing expedition against Manafort and found evidence of tax evasion involving income that Manafort made while serving as a lobbyist for the government of Ukraine.

The criminal charges themselves clearly dont match up to the original purpose of the investigation. Writes Judge Andrew Napolitano:

Both were accused of working as foreign agents and failing to report that status to the federal government, using shell corporations to launder income and obstruction of justice by lying to the federal government.

He adds:

The alleged crimes of Manafort and Gates appear to have nothing to do with Trump, nor have they any facial relationship to the Russians. So why were these two indicted by a grand jury hearing evidence about alleged American assistance to Russian interference with the 2016 presidential campaign?

One of the worrisome aspects of the indictments, however, has been Muellers use of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, as filing criminal charges using that law has been done only six times before, according to George Washington University and legal blogger, Jonathan Turley. Manaforts violation, notes Turley, was retroactively registering as a foreign agent, something that...

My visit to an Amazon bookstore Marginal REVOLUTION

My commentary here is late to the party, but I had not visited a branch before.  Here are my impressions, derived from the Columbus Circle outlet in Manhattan:

1. It is a poorly designed store for me, most of all because it does not emphasize new releases.  I feel I am familiar with a lot of older titles, or I went through a more or less rational process of deciding not to become familiar with them.  Their current popularity, as measured say by Amazon rankings, does not cause me to reassess those judgments.  For me, aggregate Amazon popularity has no real predictive power, except perhaps I dont want to buy books everyone liked.  A really smart person says to consider this again, however, would revise my prior estimates.

2. For me, the very best bookstore and bookstore layout is Daunt, in London, Marylebone High St.  You are hit by a blast of what is new, but also selected according to intellectual seriousness rather than popularity.  You can view many titles at the same time, because they use the facing out function just right for their new arrivals tables.  Some of the rest of the store is arranged by country, much preferable to having say China books in separate sections of history, travel, biography, and so on.

3. I am pleased that fiction is given so much space toward the front of the store.  I do not see this as good for me, but it is a worthwhile counterweight to the ongoing tendency of American book markets to reward non-fiction, or at least what is supposed to be non-fiction.

4. I have mixed feelings about the idea of all books facing outward.  On the positive side, books not facing outward tend to be ignored.  On the downside, this also limits the potential for hierarchicalization through visual display.  All books facing outwards is perhaps a bit too much like no books facing outwards.

Overall I am struck by how internet commerce is affecting Christies and Sothebys in a broadly similar fashion.  The auction houses used to put out different genres, such as Contemporary, European Painting, 20th Century, and so on, for 3-4 day windows, and then they would display virtually everything up for auction.  Now they have a single big display, with highlights from each area, and the rest viewable on-line.  That display then shows for about three weeks.  Like Amazon, they are opting to emphasize what is popular and to let on-line displays pick up the tails and niches.  In all cases, that means less turnover in the displays.  That is information-rich for infrequent visitors, who can take in more at once, but information-poor in relative terms for frequent visitors.  As a somewhat infrequent visitor to auction houses, I gain, but for bookstores I would prefer they cater to the relatively frequent patrons.

5. I am most worried by the prominent center table at the entrance, which presents Books with...

This Is What A Pre-Crash Market Looks Like The Economic Collapse

The only other times in our history when stock prices have been this high relative to earnings, a horrifying stock market crash has always followed.  Will things be different for us this time?  We shall see, but without a doubt this is what a pre-crash market looks like.  This current bubble has been based on irrational euphoria that has been fueled by relentless central bank intervention, but now global central banks are removing the artificial life support in unison.  Meanwhile, the real economy continues to stumble along very unevenly.  This is the longest that the U.S. has ever gone without a year in which the economy grew by at least 3 percent, and many believe that the next recession is very close.  Stock prices cannot stay completely disconnected from economic reality forever, and once the bubble bursts the pain is going to be unlike anything that we have ever seen before.

If you think that these ridiculously absurd stock prices are sustainable, there is something that I would like for you to consider.  The only times in our history when the cyclically-adjusted return on stocks has been lower, a nightmarish stock market crash happened soon thereafter

Why Doesnt The Left Give Our Veterans The Respect That They Deserve? The Economic Collapse

Our veterans deserve the very best, and yet way too often they get the very worst.  The Department of Veteran Affairs is a disaster, it takes forever to get claims processed, and VA facilities are often extremely dirty and poorly managed.  Rates of unemployment and suicide are far higher for veterans than they are for the population as a whole, and yet the left is strongly backing the NFL players as they disrespect our veterans when they refuse to stand for the national anthem.  There are more than 18 million veterans in the United States today, and more than 9 million of them (including my father) are over the age of 65.  As a society, it is time for us to make it exceedingly clear that we are not going to put up with mistreatment of our veterans any longer.

There was one promising sign on Sunday.  It is being reported that for the first time this season, every player stood for the national anthem

No NFL players protested during the national anthem during Sundays early games, according to multiple reports.

The NFL Players Association unanimously passed a resolution earlier in the week calling for a moment of silence during Sundays games in honor of Veterans Day.

Players who previously knelt or raised their fists during the anthem stood this week. Tennessee Titans receiver Rishard Matthews walked onto the field holding hands with soldiers, then stood for the anthem, The Associated Press reported.

Hopefully this show of respect will continue in the weeks ahead....

The culture of harassment in Washington, D.C. Marginal REVOLUTION

The sexual-harassment revolution is coming more slowly to Washington. Even the four female lawmakers who recently told the Associated Press of sexual harassment they faced from their male co-workers didnt feel comfortable sharing the names of their harassers. Im not sure women in D.C. would be rewarded for their bravery [if they came forward], its just a different business, Ellen says. The thing about this town is that everyone is connected. The people who get ahead keep the peace and angle everything to their advantage.

Add to that the tribal nature of politics: Most aides are terrified of doing anything that might bring bad press for their boss, or their side. Theres an anti-snitch sorta thing you dont air your dirty laundry, says Anne Gregory Teicher, a Democratic campaign manager. It gives the other side power.

And it doesnt stop when the campaign is over. Staffers are told from day one that they do not talk to press, full stop, says Travis Moore, a former legislative director for the now-retired representative Henry Waxman, a California Democrat. As a Waxman aide, he says, I spoke to a reporter once, on background, and I was incredibly nervous going into it people are socialized not to ever talk about whats wrong in the institution because it could reflect poorly on their member of Congress. Theres a culture that doesnt accept criticism unless youre talking about partisanship. Its really bad for the institution.

I heard similar rationales from the other women I reached out to. Were all a bit more scared. We dont have platforms like big-name actresses do
