Wolf Richter – On a Mission to Reveal the Truth

from Financial Survival Network

Wolf Richter is one of the best traveled guests we’ve ever had on FSN. One day he up and quit his job, thinking he’d travel to France for an extended 7 week vacation. That trip turned into three year, over 100 country odyssey that left him profoundly changed. Upon his return to the States, he started blogging and hasn’t stopped yet. He’s busy confronting the lies and distortions that the media perpetrates upon the public. Hopefully he’ll never stop!

High Frequency Trading with Scott Patterson, Author of ‘The Quants & Dark Pools’ (Episode #676)

from The Creating Wealth Show

Jason Hartman is joined by author, Scott Patterson to discuss high frequency trading, of which roughly 70 percent is driven by computers. Scott says the firms using artificial intelligence for high-speed trading make it nearly impossible for the little guy to compete in the markets. According to his book, Dark Pools, these robot systems trade in milliseconds. High frequency firms flood the market with buy and sell orders, effectively clogging up the system and posing a threat to other firms. While this electronic exchange made the system more effective, one has to wonder if this trading style hasn’t become detrimental to the markets overall when trading successfully is defined by milliseconds. Scott coined the term “A.I. Bandits” to describe electronic high frequency trading. Scott also discusses the history of quant strategies based on his book, The Quants, a mathematical scientific approach to outsmarting Wall Street, which led to the recent financial crash. He calls the quant system “a classic tale of hubris.” Scott Patterson is author of The Quants and his new release, Dark Pools, and is currently a reporter for The Wall Street Journal, where he covers financial regulation from Washington, D.C. He has also written for the New York Times, Rolling Stone and Mother Earth News. He has a Masters of Arts degree from James Madison University. He lives in Alexandria, Virginia.

from Financial Survival Network

Bix Weir – Time for Trump and Sanders to Unite




from Financial Survival Network

Bix Weir believes that in order for the country to survive the coming crash, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders must unite forces. Otherwise the American Public will remain polarized and incapable of acting in their own best interests. This will effectively play into the hands of the bad guys who want to impose one world government and a global currency, thus enslaving humanity. Bix is convinced that it’s been their plan and goal all along. Will Trump and Sanders break down the partisan divide and unite for the good of America? It’s a long shot but stranger things have happened before.

Ivan Eland – Current Relations with Vietnam a Good Starting Point For Mideast

from Financial Survival Network

Ivan Eland joined us today to discuss the country’s future relations with the Mideast. Ivan believes that the US’s growing relationship with Vietnam is a good starting point for the Mideast. His views on US foreign interventionism and militaristic adventurism seem to align well with candidate Trump’s view of things. Require definable US interests before getting involved in situations that might not work out well. Restraint is often the best response or action.

Dear Reader,

New York Times Best Selling Author and Hedge Fund Manager Marin Katusa, of Katusa Research, shocked investors this week with the revelation of his top gold pick. In an interview about China’s own debt crisis and the massive amount of money flowing into the gold sector, Marin Katusa revealed that his top gold holding is a small gold accumulator, Brazil Resources (TSXV: BRI & US: BRIZF), who has acquired over 10 million ounces of gold through acquisition!

from Dollar Collapse

Watch Brexit, the Movie, to understand why Britain might just leave the EU — and why other members should leave as well. Meanwhile, the Saudis are apparently out of money, the bricks and mortar retailers are out of customers and Wall Street bankers are looking at mass unemployment.

Wayne Allyn Root – Hillary Will Not Be the Democratic Nominee

from Financial Survival Network

Wayne Allyn Root is nothing if not consistent. From the beginning he said that Donald Trump would be the Republican nominee. While most people thought he was off his rocker, look what happened. He’s also been saying from the get-go that Hillary would never be the nominee for a number of reasons, the least among them her email travail. Wayne says she’s a lousy candidate, isn’t real and doesn’t like people. She’s a manufactured candidate, just like all the rest except for Donald. When will the next shoe drop?

Five Ways Capitalist Chile is Much Better Than Socialist Venezuela

The story of Chile’s success starts in the mid-1970s, when Chile’s military government abandoned socialism and started to implement economic reforms.

by Marian Tupy
Reason.com

The story of Chile’s success starts in the mid-1970s, when Chile’s military government abandoned socialism and started to implement economic reforms. In 2013, Chile was the world’s 10th freest economy. Venezuela, in the meantime, declined from being the world’s 10th freest economy in 1975 to being the world’s least free economy in 2013 (Human Progress does not have data for the notoriously unfree North Korea).

[…] 1. As economic freedom increased, so did income per capita (adjusted for inflation and purchasing power parity), which rose from being 31 percent of that in Venezuela to being 138 percent of that in Venezuela. Between 1975 and 2015, the Chilean economy grew by 287 percent. Venezuela’s shrunk by 12 percent.

Mechanical ‘Economics’

by Hugo Salinas Price
Plata.com.mx

Our world is approaching a financial tipping-point, which may be only months away. When we do reach the tipping-point, the financial collapse will be vast in its destructive consequences and in a matter of a few days our world will change beyond our power of description.

The shadow of the approaching new reality is upon us and we can already perceive its outlines; this allows us to talk of our civilization in the past tense.

Professor Joseph A. Tainter, of the University of California, wrote a most interesting book with the title “The Collapse of Complex Societies”. In brief, the message of the book is that all societies have a habit of organizing themselves, and at a certain point, more and more organization makes them increasingly less attractive to their members. People then begin to leave their native societies and seek out other places to live; or else they lose heart and become unable to defend themselves from less-organized invading barbarians.

Internet Reformation Progresses Undeterred by Current Elections

by Daily Bell Staff
The Daily Bell

The Awakening Will Continue Regardless of This Year’s Election … Every four years the public gets all riled up over the outcome of the presidential election, projecting all their expectations and visions for a better tomorrow on to a candidate in the hopes that they will swoop in and save the day. However, the reality is that the outcome of the presidential election has little to no effect on the direction of the country anymore. – Last American Vagabond

This article posted at the Last American Vagabond makes points that build on some basic Daily Bell themes going back a decade or longer.

The main point in this article is the current presidential elections will not put a halt to what we call the Internet Reformation.

Interestingly, the original Reformation was a controlled, elite process designed to split the Roman Catholic Church asunder. But like so many elite manipulations, the Reformation soon took on a life of its own and moved in unanticipated directions.

Curmudgeonly Observations – Two

Part Two of Monty Pelerin’s Curmudgeonly Observations

by Monty Pelerin
Monty Pelerin’s World

– No one has a “right” or “entitlement” to the product of another’s effort. That is as true for a common criminal as it is for a government.

– Compassion can be claimed when people voluntarily provide for the needy. Theft or coercion can never be the basis for compassion. Force is at odds with and diametrically opposed to compassion.

– This year (2016) there are three choices for president — a clown, a felon and a goofy Socialist. One might hope that this confluence of absurdities would be enough to convince even the ignorant of how government is little different from the Mafia. H. L. Mencken would take the other side of this hope and probably be correct.

Gold Mining Buy-Out Binge Coming, and That’s a Mixed Blessing

by John Rubino
Dollar Collapse

This is a good news/bad news story.

Say you’re one of the many people who bought junior gold and silver mining stocks a few years ago — and then watched in horror as they fell day after day, week after week, finally settling at pennies on your dollar.

Then, just as they seem to be recovering, you’re notified that some big miner with much less spectacular upside potential is buying one of your little lottery tickets for a premium to the current price — but a fraction of what you paid back in the day. You now own shares of Goldcorp or Agnico Eagle or some other household name, which isn’t bad. But it’s definitely not the 10-bagger you’d been hoping for to redeem your terrible timing.
