Wake Up Call: QE 2 Didn’t Solve Anything, QE 3 Won't Either





This reveals QE for what it really was: just another “hit” for drug addict that is the global debt system. We’ve already passed the point at which the negative effect of monetary easing (inflation) outweigh its positive effect (markets rallying). This is similar to the state of drug addiction in which the drug barely creates a “high” but is ravaging the user’s system with health problems.

Graham Summers’ Weekly Market Forecast (Next Leg Down Edition)





I warned to get defensive several weeks ago. That warning is even more important now. I would avoid stocks and Treasuries as neither are particularly safe. I’d have increased exposure to cash and PHYSICAL bullion (Gold and Silver). If you have to remain long stocks shift into large-caps and companies that will exist a year from now (brands and industries people will need regardless of how bad the economy gets).

Sol Sanders | Follow the money No. 80 Daddy’s sugar bowl empties





German taxpayers all along were wary of becoming the only teat on the EC’s udder for what Winston Churchill once called Europe’s soft underbelly. There is nostalgia, too, for the once high-flying DMark which few wanted exchanged in 2002 for Euros. Now those feelings are exploding with Germany’s vaunted economy going south – but not just for bailouts for Greece, Portugal, Ireland, and possibly Spain, and even Italy.

To QE3 or Not to QE3





Perceptions have turned very negative and the media has been increasingly playing on fears (e.g. the U.S. debt ceiling crisis and the big default scare). If the economy gets so bad, and the stock market falls low enough, many believe the Fed will step in with another short term fix to prop up the stock market - QE3.

Business Lessons From a Pastry Chef





Courseille had created something that was not only delicious, but an additional revenue stream for his employer (the “chicken” sells for $12, and to be honest, I would have paid $20 for it, it’s that good). Whether the guy knows it or not, he’s a marketing genius (on top of a master pastry chef). I had to meet him.
