John Sullivan – Conservative/Libertarian Director of “America: Imagine The World Without Her”

from Financial Survival Network

John Sullivan directed America: Imagine the World Without Her and 2016: Obama’s America. He’s a bit of a rarity, a conservative living and working in Hollywood. He’s also considers himself more of a libertarian than a conservative. He directed these films out of concern for the direction the country is headed in. As John said, the US is in decline and no one seems determined to do anything about it. Is it too late?

Don Mazzella – Americans With Disabilities Act: Trial Lawyers Gone Mad

from Financial Survival Network

Don Mazzella noted author, publisher and small business expert tells how the Americans with Disabilities Act has become nothing more than a feeding frenzy for rapacious trial lawyers. They prey upon small businesses who haven’t fully complied with the minutiae of the complicated statute. Now H&R Block has settled a case where they’ve agreed to make their e-commerce website handicap accessible. This may potentially open up whole new vistas for parasitic lawyers looking for ever greener pastures. There’s hundreds of millions of websites that are not compliant that could be open to litigation. While the original statute was well intentioned, it is often said, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions. And on that road there will be a toll plaza manned by democrats!”

Why the Fed Will Launch Another Round of QE

by Richard Duncan
Daily Reckoning

In November 2002, Fed Governor Ben Bernanke introduced the concept of Quantitative Easing to the world. In a speech entitled “Deflation: Making Sure It Doesn’t Happen Here”, he explained that the Fed could prevent deflation from taking hold in the United States by creating money and using it to acquire government and agency (i.e. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) bonds. He proclaimed that this “unorthodox monetary policy” would be particularly efficacious if carried out in combination with an expansionary fiscal policy.

With this speech, Bernanke reassured the banking industry and the rest of the speculating community of the Fed’s omnipotence. In doing so, he encouraged even more aggressive credit creation and risk-taking. As a result, the credit bubble, which had already grown quite large, became very much larger. When it imploded six years later, Fed Chairman Bernanke, in cooperation with Treasury Secretaries Paulson and Geithner, responded to the crisis using the exact policies Bernanke had described in 2002.

Putin Warns Of Risk Of Major Conflict, Says Dollar Losing Reserve Currency Status

from Zero Hedge

Having been relatively quiet for a while, Russia’s leader Vladimir, speaking in Sochi (following meetings with Middle East crown princes who confirmed Russia as a key partner – “isolated”?), has unleashed his most aggressive statements with regard the failing world order:

  • *PUTIN SAYS U.S. DOLLAR LOSING TRUST AS RESERVE CURRENCY
  • *PUTIN: WORLD WITHOUT RULES IS POSSIBILITY; ANARCHY GROWING

Adding that the risk of major conflicts involving major countries is growing, as well as the risk of arms control treaties being violated, Putin exclaimed that the US-led unipolar world is like a dictatorship over other countries and that “US leadership brings no good for others,” and calls for a new global consensus.

Hyperventilation Charade: EU Demands Another €2.1 Billion from UK, “We Won’t Pay,” Says Furious Cameron

by Mike “Mish” Shedlock
MISH’S Global Economic Trend Analysis

Things are about to get more interesting in the EU as a review of budget procedures shows the UK, Greece, and Italy owe more money, but Germany and France will get money back.

Curiously, this came about following a review of non-profit organizations from churches and universities to trade unions, charities and sports clubs. The time period is 2002-2009.

Cameron’s Obvious Bluff

UK prime minister David Cameron is already battling French President Francois Hollande abroad, and UKIP at home.

Thus, Cameron’s limited choice is to bluff as usual: “We Won’t Pay,” Says Furious Cameron.

Why Money Doesn’t Measure Value

by Robert P. Murphy
Mises.org

Anyone who knows him personally would attest that David Gordon is a troublemaker. He lived up to this label with a recent review of the new book by Steve Forbes and Elizabeth Ames. Gordon took them to task for referring to money as a measure of value, analogous to a ruler or clock; Gordon cited the authority of Ludwig von Mises while rejecting such a view. In a previous post here at Mises Canada, I then defended Gordon from the reply of John Tamny. Yet now I see that economist Marc Miles has jumped in the fray, also thinking that Gordon is ignorant of basic economics.

Let me be clear: Gordon (and Mises) are right; money is not a “measuring rod” of value. However, the reason Tamny and Miles are astounded by Gordon’s position is that they think he is denying the (obvious) fact that people acquire money merely as a means to a further end. In the present post, let me try to clear up all of this confusion that the mischievous Gordon stirred up. As we’ll see, it’s precisely because people use money as a means to a further end, that it is NOT analogous to a ruler or clock or scale.

Weekly Update: Central Banks Sway the Market

by Gainesville Coins” Content Team
Outsider Club

Overview: This week was characterized by renewed volatility in the markets. This can partly be attributed to the diverging policies of the Federal Reserve and European Central Bank: the latter is just now instituting its form of monetary easing, while the former is set to conclude its stimulus program. After undulating, stocks ended the week up as gold retreated from its recent rally.

Obama Hugs Nurse Deemed Free of Ebola

President greets Pham, who treated patient in Dallas

by Russ Britt
Market Watch

LOS ANGELES (MarketWatch) — On a day when New Yorkers were unnerved by an Ebola diagnosis in their city, President Barack Obama was hugging a Dallas nurse now deemed free of the disease in Washington, D.C.

Obama and nurse Nina Pham, who was treated for Ebola this week, embraced in the Oval Office after she was released from the biocontainment unit at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md.

Obama greeted Pham and thanked her for her service in helping to treat Thomas Eric Duncan, who succumbed to the disease shortly while being treated at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas. Pham, 26, and colleague Amber Vinson, 29, contracted the deadly virus during their treatment of Vinson earlier this month.

Goldman and Blackstone Enter Spanish Real Estate – Pain and Suffering for Poor People Immediately Ensues

by Michael Krieger
Liberty Blitzkrieg

Last year Madrid’s city and regional governments sold almost 5,000 rent-controlled flats to private equity investors including Goldman Sachs and Blackstone. At the time, the tenants were told their rental conditions would remain the same.

But as old contracts expire, dozens of people have received demands for higher rent, been told their rents will increase dramatically, been threatened with eviction or moved out to escape the insecurity. Thousands of Spain’s poor now depend for their homes on the generosity of private equity.

- From today’s Reuters article: Why Madrid’s Poor Fear Goldman Sachs and Blackstone

Less than a month ago, I warned the people of Spain that U.S. financial oligarchs had their sights set on the nation. The post was titled, Your Wall Street Slumlord Arrives in Europe – Goldman and Other Financial Firms Launch “Buy to Rent” in Spain, and in it I wrote:

China, India Launch New Asia Infrastructure Bank

from The BRICS Post

In a landmark achievement, 21 Asian nations including China and India on Thursday signed on a new infrastructure investment bank which would rival the World Bank.

The governments of Bangladesh, Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, China, India, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Oman, Pakistan, Philippines, Uzbekistan, Qatar, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Uzbekistan, Vietnam signed on as founding members of the new Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) in Beijing on Friday.

One of the first projects of the new Bank is expected to be financing infrastructure projects along the “Silk Road Economic Belt” and the “Maritime Silk Road” re-establishment.

Chinese Finance Minister Lou Jiwei said on Friday the “multi-national financial institution which is fair, just, open … with a good governance structure” will be an “efficient financing platform for infrastructure”.

Gold Rebounds but Gold Miners Struggle

by Jordan Roy-Byrne, CMT
The Daily Gold

Several weeks ago the entire precious metals space was extremely oversold and due for at the least, a reflex rally. Gold was down in nine of twelve weeks with Silver down in eleven of those twelve weeks. The miners experienced a nasty September and were down five consecutive weeks. With Gold rallying from $1185 to $1255, we would expect Silver and the mining stocks to rebound strongly in percentage terms. However, those markets have lagged Gold badly. The mining stocks are essentially back to their lows and Silver hasn’t fared much better. The recent stark underperformance of Silver and the mining stocks especially is a warning sign of further downside.

The Growing Concern of Home-Grown Terrorits

They are saying that the attack in Canada was because it was supporting the USA is sending troops to fight against ISIS. Canada did pass a bill to launch combat mission against ISIS 157-134 in House of Commons. The European powers are very much afraid to do so because of domestic high Muslim populations. What took place in Canada does illustrate the risks of a religious war. Japanese pilots would crash their planes into ships because they believed the Emperor was the virtual son of God on Earth. What someone believes if paramount.
