Several Exponential Charts

Tyler Durden's picture


We'll let the charts do the talking this time.

Consolidated "developed world" relative devaluation...

Standalone devaluation and projected 1

Standalone devaluation and projected 2

Add China's money supply...

And China's reserves...

Which brings us to this. Will the exponential growth end? If not, following the yellow brick road.

I first saw this a few years ago. I didn't personally need the math lesson, but he makes the point better than most that:

Anything compounded consistently will result in a bubble, or in the examples from nature, collapse.

For several decades I have been worrying about the insanity of apparently endless exponential growth, ending in overshoot, and thus, ending in catastrophic collapses. However, everyone that benefits from driving more exponential growth has all the money and power under that system to continue to do it ... whereas, the reality of overshoot, and then collapsing to chaos, ONLY "exists" now to the degree that one has enough intelligence, imagination and information to be able to see that.

Evolving a human and industrial ecology that does not automatically destroy itself appears to be practically impossible at the present time. We appear required to ride the roller coaster of doubling our population and activities one too many times, then, after it collapses, doing that again, and again, on some lesser scales, unless, perhaps, we finally evolved social and political means to stop doing that as badly, over and over again.

However, for now, those who benefit the most in the short-term from maximizing their own ability to defraud and rob have every advantage within the established systems to continue to do that more and more and more ... The biggest bullies' continue to be popular, and too many people still believe in their bullshit.

Learning more, to be able to imagine the future better, does not do anything much to prevent that still happening, as long as enough people contrinue to not want to do that, while small but powerful, groups work hard to make sure that collectively we never will do that.

There is a deliberate war against consciousness, to prevent people from understanding the mathematics of exponential growth. To quote another commenter, we are controlled by mathemagicians, not by mathematics.

We live our lives according to beliefs in Huge Lies, which got going by being backed up with violence. Thus, we have a fundamentally fraudulent financial accounting system, privatized fiat money-as-debt, which reduces understanding all of the rest of the real world to garbage in, garbage out. Everything we decide to do is done by using a bent rubber ruler, as our money system, to assess that decision.

There is no signs that will get any better. Instead, those who made and maintained that system are eager to gamble on starting a world war, with the risk of out-of-control use of weapons of mass destruction, in order to back up their demented bookkeeping system, where money in the bank could reproduce faster than anything else, like fish in the sea, or oil in the ground, or anything else actually real could!

Since we are controlled by trimphant frauds, we are rushing at exponential growth, towards overshoot, and collapsing to chaos, as fast as we possibly can!  Those who are driving us all to do that CAN because they were the best at being dishonest and violent in the past, which has enabled them to have the social position and prestige that they enjoy today.  By the time we discover how wrong we all were, it will be way, way too late!

Obviously bet the Fed, ECB and BoJ is very risky. I would say that it is irresponsible and has many risks. However, we do not know which will be the consecuancias or when we begin to see them. For my part, I think there maintain investments and be alert to changing trends. Markets may begin to rise significantly. But then they could drop significantly. In both situations, we can make money. But we have to be in the market. People who decide to stay outside, you risk losing your wealth.

If you don't know Spanish or just don't want to read, the IMF told Argentina to get their economy in order in 3 months or else, Cristina told them that "EL FONDO MONETARIO INTERNACIONAL ES ARGENTINO" and that they were not like that with the economy of Spain or Greece. She also told the UN that USA is trying to commit "political assassination" against Argentina...weird I thought Argentina was off the shit list.

They just told them to fuck off again , and they will tell them to FUCK OFF again in three month.
I personally dislike K the bitch very much. I also lost a million paper dollars on that original FUCK OFF. but it is nice to tell the IMF to fuck oFF. Greeks are pussies , i thought more of them.....

Private ownership of gold may be beneficial for those who own it in light of inflation and printing and a universal security; however, that prosperity could be short lived if economic policies cause a collapse of the currency.

And regardless the political ramifications, gold does not have the ability to save the economy because as a currency most people do not own it.

Bill Fleckenstein wrote in mid-January of 2011 that he did not believe there was deep participation in the gold market. Said Fleckenstein:

“On that subject, I thought Marc Faber's most recent Gloom, Boom & Doom Report, headlined, ‘The end game has begun,’ was most interesting.

“Marc started off by discussing this fact: As he does speaking engagements around the world in front of hundreds, if not thousands, of people at a time, when he asks how many own gold, just a few hands usually go up. I note this for the same reason he gives: ‘I'm asking myself -- and I have done so for the past few months -- why, 10 years into a bull market, the vast majority of people still don't own any gold?’”

Exponential is good, it means even the sheep will notice eventually.

The difference beween weimar and now is that in Germany people were told repeatedly that it was the dollar that was appreciating, and that more marks had to be printed so that people could still purchase things, which were rising rapidly in price.


At least now some of the sheeple will be able to understand the truth in time to save some of their wealth.


If C/Bs can no longer pull the inflation genie trick without dishoarding tons of gold,  Might not that be the end of the road for Central Banking.

Well no. I mean I see no economic reason.  I can see the motivation to manipulate the price by the Fed and China but economically it seems gold should be tracking the M2 charts.

if them assets were worth what they say they are why ain't the banks selling them to the equity dopes on the little yellow bus. Oh, yea, they are, fed buys, prints, buys S&P, sell to dopes, exits gas soaked tomb, flicks lit match. Remember this though, if he is smarter then the shorts he's selling it to you.

God damn, they never learn. The equity boys really need to dress in leather and a ball gag when they fire up the Macs in the morning.

The chart will bend backwards in time because it can't track the upward movement fast enough.

This is also why the BLS is always upwardly adjusting their numbers retroactively.

Some ideas, like fire, coins and integrated circuits, are both universal and useful. Other ideas, such as fractional reserve banking, are more useful to only a small percentage of people than to the larger percentage. Burdensome ideas are meant to be and will be replaced when the tools exist to replace them.

After this it's hyperinflate or default.  Which and when is not something to bet on.

How can the national debt be lower today than it was 30 days ago.

What are they hiding?

I know they want to put the ceiling fight off till after the election, but

really the debt is going down?

Curt W... "how many indicators are currently being manipulated?"

Answer: All of them. It's game on in D.C., but it really doesn't matter

whether the reds or the blues win the White House. In the end, we the

tax-paying public lose. Maybe it's time for everyone to go on welfare.

It's time for hope and change again; I hope you can spare some change.

Shit, what am I going to do with my fifty pounds of numismatic silver that I 'lost' in a sand storm?  (we don't have many lakes out here other than dry ones)  Wind was over 125 mph...amazing how shit blew away....lost my shirt, literally.

I was amazed at how fast that silver shit piled up over the years.  My decision to get silver eagles for every year going back to the reinstitution of them, then the additional Morgans, the silver mint proofs...took a hell of a loss.  Didn't claim it on the tax forms because I didn't claim the purchase.  (same as the .45's, 12 ga double ought, .30 cal and the various tools that use them)  A minor police report is all that was necessary.

Oh, that drug house three doors down from you?  Talk to them, you may find sources of items of interest that you might wish to keep unrecorded.  Things no one claims or knows about.  Bring cash...definitely recommended.

Sorry been out of touch, putting the finishing touches on my "Bug In" house, which is now fully useable although needs a few more items.

It was nice to take a few weeks away from the markets, I kind of watched out of the corner of my eye, chuckling at the Ben shenanighans and rather than being mad, enjoyed the gold rush, and planning to capture some business.

I do think we get some minor immediate down to shake out the weak bulls, encourage the bears, and scare everyone before the true believers are rewarded into the election.

If stocks are down, Obama is out, it is that simple.   I believe he will be out anyway, but for those expecting the end of the world as we know it, you will have to wait until next year.    They will print, and they can print.   It is not "pushing on a string" it is simply printing.  

Stop in and have a look, all the old classics.

A quick review shows some very disturbing trends.

An obvious uptrend in radiation is spreading across the country, with some areas seeing scary high levels.   Something happened around Sept 17th.  

Rule of thumb is that exposure to 100 CPM clicks per minute for a year results in a real risk of cancer, 500 CPM for 90 days is a real risk.

Many places are now up over 100,

25 is "normal" we just don't get that much lower.   And back in the day, before Fuku, 50% to 66% of us got cancer, what will the new normal be.  

Basic protective measures, air filters, anti-oxidants.     Do them now if you are not on track.
