"This Will All Blow Up In The Fed's Face," Schiff Warns "Trump's Right, America Is Broke"





"The trigger that's going to really send us into a higher gear is going to be the admission by the Fed that the economy is weak or the markets figure it out on their own. There's not a lot of stimulus left, all they've got is potentially negative rates and a huge round of quantitative easing, and this thing is going to blow up in the Fed's face."

Bad - But Better Than What's Coming





Very simply, if you borrow too much money life gets harder and the things that used to work stop working. For a country, lower interest rates no longer induce businesses and individuals to borrow and spend, and government deficits no longer translate directly into more full-time private sector jobs. Growth slows, voters get mad, politics gets crazy, and generally bad times ensue. The only question is why this is a surprise to the people whose choices brought us to the edge of the abyss.

Wall Street Drops The 'C' Word: Proclaims Junk Bond Risks Are Contained





To an economist, the economy can bear no recession. In times of heavy central bank activity, an economy can never be in recession. Those appear to be the only dynamic factors that drive economic interpretation in the mainstream. And they become circular in the trap of just these kinds of circumstances – the economy looks like it might fall into recession, therefore a central bank acts, meaning the economy will avoid recession; thus there will never be recession. The risks are all still there, and economists are still determined to downplay if not miss them entirely.

Did A Central Banker Just Margin Call All Other Central Banks' Credibility?





Did the BOJ’s out-of-the-blue reversal on its monetary stance which was refuted just weeks prior by Mr. Kuroda himself take place because after listening to the arguments, suggestions, as well as concerns, from the participants at Davos he concluded much like what the movie “Margin Call” depicted: It was all about to unravel? And if so: is this him deciding to be “first” and considered it his only choice?

25 Years Of Fed Fueled M&A - The Enabling Of A Banking Oligopoly





Between 1990 and 2010, eventually 37 banks would become JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and Citigroup. The “Big Four” retail banks in the United States collectively hold 45% of all customer bank deposits for a total of $4.6 trillion... as the biggest got biggest-er all thanks to the very visible hand of The Fed's free money.

Barclays Rigged Its OIL ETN By Limiting New Creation Units





Despite Larry Fink's relentless efforts to convince everyone how safe ETFs are, these products and their bastard offspring - ETNs - continue to demonstrate exactly how rigged financial markets have become. Barron's uncovered the cause of the huge anomaly in the OIL ETN: The wide premium developed after Barclays limited how many new shares could be created, inhibiting the normal mechanism that keeps an ETN's price in line with its index.

America's Road To Serfdom: 51% Of Renters Are Over-40 Years Old





While popular perception holds that debt-ridden, broke millennials are the ones driving the rental market, the truth is far more nuanced... and depressing for those who still cling breathlessly to The American Dream. The truth is millions of Americans were reduced to neo-feudal serfs by the financial crisis, and how those who ruined the economy profited handsomely from the process.

5 Signs Of America's Decaying Society





There exists a common theme amidst these signs of societal decay: The super-rich keep taking from the middle class as the middle class becomes a massive lower class. Yet the myth persists that we should all look up with admiration at the “self-made” takers who are ripping our society apart.

The Most Devious Liars In The Room





There were a few different stories coming out over the last few days that reveal the true nature of government and the apparatchiks who use disinformation, devious machinations, fraudulent accounting, and taxpayer money to cover up their criminality, lies, and the true state of the American economy. The use of government accounting tricks to obscure the truth about our dire financial straits is designed to keep the masses sedated and confused.

Bernanke: The Courage To Print - Reading Between The Lies





The Fed needs to extricate itself from manipulating the financial markets. It needs to end backstopping market liquidity. It must never again print Trillions of new “money” out of thin air. Because so long as the marketplace perceives that the markets are "too big to fail", there will be speculative excess, major securities markets mispricings and Bubble fragilities. No one – average investor or sophisticated financial operator – has a clue as to the degree Fed policies have distorted asset prices.

Hillary Clinton Reveals Her Plan To "Prevent The Next Crash" In Bloomberg Op-Ed





"Thanks to President Obama’s leadership and the determination and sacrifice of the American people, we’ve worked our way out of that ditch and put our economy on sounder footing. Now we have to keep going.

To prevent irresponsible behavior on Wall Street from ever again devastating Main Street, we need more accountability, tougher rules and stronger enforcement. I have a plan to build on the progress we’ve made under President Obama and do just that."
