The Last (Policy-Induced) Gasp Of Speculative Excess





Markets these days have every reason to question the efficacy of global monetary management. Last week saw dovish crisis management vociferation from the ECB’s Draghi. Now the BOJ adopts a crisis management stance. The week also had talk of some deal to reduce global crude supply. Meanwhile, the PBOC injected a weekly record $105 billion of new liquidity. Nonetheless, the Shanghai Composite sank 6.1% to a 13-month low. There was desperation in the air – along with a heck of a short squeeze and general market mayhem.

How Do You Know When Your Society Is In The Midst Of Collapse?





The public idea of collapse comes predominantly from Hollywood, and not from personal experience. For the masses (and some preppers, unfortunately), a collapse is an “event” that happens visibly and usually swiftly. You wake up one morning and behold; the television and phones don’t work anymore and zombies are at your doorstep! Yes, it’s childish and cartoonish, but anything less than a Walking Dead/Mad Max scenario and many people act as if all other threats are benign. This is the driving reason why many Americans are absolutely oblivious to the economic instability that is rampant and blatant within our system the past few months. Well, the problem is that social and economic collapse is not a singular event, it is a PROCESS.

Tenge Crashes As Low Oil Prices Take Dramatic Toll On Kazakh Economy





With the lifting of Iran sanctions, the Tenge has crashed5% to record lows at 377/USD (extending the currencies collapse since the USD-peg was scrapped in August). Furthermore, oil production is entering a new year of decline this year in Kazakhstan - a dismal omen for a country so heavily reliant on energy exports.

Black Swan Lands In Portugal As Socialists Move To Overthrow Government





The Socialists are coming! Just about the last thing Europe needs amid the bloc's worsening migrant crisis is a rerun of the Greek bailout negotiations, but that looks increasingly likely now that a coalition of leftists is moving to take control of the government in Portugal.
