The All-Time-High In The Dow Jones Industrial Average Is A Hoax





The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) Index is the only stock market index that covers both the second and the third industrial revolution. Calculating share indexes such as the Dow Jones Industrial Average and showing this index in a historical graph is a useful way to show which phase the industrial revolution is in. Changes in the DJIA shares basket, changes in the formula and stock splits during the take-off phase and acceleration phase of industrial revolutions are perfect transition-indicators. The similarities of these indicators during the last two revolutions are fascinating, but also a reason for concern. In fact the graph of the DJIA is a classic example of fictional truth, a hoax.

Congressman Calls For Benmosche's Head After "Lynching" Comments





When we pointed out AIG CEO Benmosche's somewhat disconnected-from-reality comments comparing banker-treatment to lynchings of black people in the deep south, we suspected there would be fallout. Sure enough, none other than Rep. Elijah Cummings (among the leading investigators into the 2008 excesses that led to AIG's bailout) has called for Benmosche to "resign his position as CEO immediately." Cummings stated: “As the leading critic of AIG’s lavish spending before and after its taxpayer funded bailout - and as the son of sharecroppers who actually experienced lynchings in their communities - I find it unbelievably appalling that Mr. Benmosche equates the violent repression of the African American people with congressional efforts to prevent the waste of taxpayer dollars..." We await the "...out of context..." retractions tomorrow...
