Officials Unfazed by Dollar Slide

Of course they're unfazed - it's all going according to plan for them and the sheeple are none the wiser.

And they thought that if an epidemic like AIDS was somehow initiated in the 80's that the continent would be sparcely populated by now.   Didn't work out exactly that way. 

I think the hope was a empty continent with natural resources by this time.

I dare say an awakening is afoot. As the author of the article says:

"The Pentagon better wise up. The best Beijing may offer is to help Africa to fulfil its destiny. In the eyes of Africans themselves, that certainly beats any Tomahawk."

A new chapter to "The Art of War".

Who's your favorite Pervert?

But Goldman's index perverted the symmetry of this system. The structure of the GSCI paid no heed to the centuries-old buy-sell/sell-buy patterns. This newfangled derivative product was "long only," which meant the product was constructed to buy commodities, and only buy.

Your Biflation News Desk: Biflation is global.

Spain unemplyoment 21.3% (!) and Euro inflaton comes in hot.

German retail sales slow, inflation blamed

Bottom line: Demand side down. Prices up. It's magic! Ben and Co. have created something new and exciting that needs studies, papers and professors to research for years to come. After the collapse they'll take a decade to explain how they'll fight the last war next time (and screw it up worse).

Tyler, the FP article on Goldman and grains totally misses the point. It is a Keynesian "evil speculators" article.

Don't you tell me you agree with that :P

Here it is....


Money is what creates prices.....


The popular commodity vehicles....a zero interest rate policy....are both 99.9% responsible for öut of line¨commodity prices....



The explanation is very simple....


Let´s say there is a box that represents all commodities without indexes included....

The value is 1X....


Now add back the indexes...actual commodities unchanged....

Presto...: 4X the money...


Back out the indexes...and commodity prices drop like a stone...

1X vs 4X....




The starving lower income developing economies can thank the likes of the bought and paid for US governement and those that have formed and maintained these commod indexes....




It´s so funny how the Ivy League government officials cannot conceive of simple math...
