A decade ago John Perkins exposed the world to the ugly reality of Washington's "Economic Hit Men." Now he is back, exposing the fact that the evil empire has the world in the grip of a "death economy," concluding that "we need a revolution" in order "to bury the death economy and birth the life economy."

How Italy Will Fail And Drag Down The European Project





Italy is big enough to matter (it is the eight largest economy on the planet), but so uneventful that most does not pay any attention to what is going on there.

"There Is Definitely Something Strange Going On" In Sweden





"Some 92% of those unaccompanied migrants were male last year...  there is definitely something strange going on. More than half of the world’s refugees are women. In World War II, when Sweden took refugees from Finland, they were children and 90% were below the age of 10. But now almost all of them are late teenagers – supposedly; we know many are older for a fact... If you have an open door policy and you are incentivizing Afghans to take advantage of the system, can you really blame them?"

Greek Attempt To Force Use Of Electronic Money Instead Of Physical Cash Fails





While the "developed world" is only now starting its aggressive push to slowly at first, then very fast ban the use of physical cash as the key gating factor to the global adoption of NIRP, one country has long been doing everything in its power to ween its population away from tax-evasive cash as a medium of payment and into digital transactions: Greece. The problem, however, is that it has failed.

Stephen Roach: "Central Banking Has Lost Its Way, Is In Crisis"





In what could well be a final act of desperation, central banks are abdicating effective control of the economies they have been entrusted to manage. First came zero interest rates, then quantitative easing, and now negative interest rates – one futile attempt begetting another. Just as the first two gambits failed to gain meaningful economic traction in chronically weak recoveries, the shift to negative rates will only compound the risks of financial instability and set the stage for the next crisis.
