I don't know what you guys are talking about.

There is so much global debt that there is no money no matter how long you run the printing presses.

That's why deflation is inescapable.

staggering is the wealth even of a multibillionaire...Geffen buys 300M worth of art.  I mean, just jawdropping that someone can actually own stuff that is nearly the exclusive province of major museums.

And then Slim and the Waltons are on a whole 'nuther level.  The wedding costs for that shitstain Prince and his whore wife...$80M for that shit?  Fucking what a waste.  But, Lakshmi spent even more on his daughter's wedding.  And the dude has a skyscraper for a house in Bombay.

It's just really incredible at an entirely new level, though, what the USG spends yearly.  Or even the deficit.  Even one Ford CVN is beyond all but the most obscenely rich individuals.

All of this money that has been printed and all of the money that is about to be printed in order to save the banks makes me think that deflationists are sick delusional characters trapped by group think brought about by bankers, politicians, and the media. Open your eyes deflationists. The one thing that is certain is that the money printers will print.

You would think so.  Yet, Japan still continues to suffer from deflation.

Yes but Japan has always had a market to export to and a balance of payments surplus. That's no longer the case.

Welcome to the collapse.

If you want to know about deflation just look at the cash held on deposit at the CB's. Cash held as wealth is latent inflation, and the more the CB's print to bailout banks turns more of their would be losses into cash.

The deflation took place when the cash was created and not spent. Now we get the inflation...

Tue, 11/22/2011 - 03:06 | 1901679 Harlequin001
Harlequin001's picture

No it is experiencing a higher gold price. Gold is a store of value; it is only a matter of time before it gets sold and the money flows into higher prices which is inflation. Gold is therefore what prevents inflation because other products do not rise in value when you buy it.

The trick is to maintain a low gold price and low inflation, which can only be achieved through derivatives and tools like ETF's...

But I suspect that you already knew that...

gold is what it is; not that important.  Production is bigger, oil is bigger, there are lots of things people want that are bigger than gold.

The system of trade hasn't run on gold for eons.  The Sterling Bill and real bills formed the basis of global trade 100s of years ago and far eclipsed the gold system.

Actually a dollar is 371 and 4/16ths grains of 999 silver.

A treasury silver certificate was a bearer note on a government held dollar.

A federal reserve note is a counerfeit. It looks almoat exactly like a silver certificate, but, being counterfeit, the us treasury will not redeem it for silver.

The dollar does represent god, but let's be specific:  it represents god incarnate; the form; the tree/the bush, what have you; hence why it 'tis green.

The snake of the tree, it is the mind of the nature


The capture (CAP T'URE/CAP TOUR)

The form of knowledge

The caduceus

The tree of life, embodied

Actually i'm not sure. Was the 1792 coinage act repealed? Just because the frns are now commonly called a 'dollar' doesn't make it so. If i call a piece of dry shit 'gold' and convince 10,000 ppl to call it gold, is it still shit or is it gold?

However bernake would probably say silver (and hence the dollar, properly defined) is not 'money'.

No, the Coinage Act of 1792 was never repealed:

However, the subsequent Coinage Act of 1900 established the statutory gold equivalent of a silver dollar:

The President and Congress swore to uphold the law of the land when they took office.

Said parties sanction the breaking of the law of the land.

The first video above mentions what the law of the land establishes as the penalty for breaking the law of the land.

Not a nice one, but it would do the trick. The only problem would be paying the interest on it, and that goes to the banks.


There is one other alternative - forgive the debt outright. Wipe the slate clean and start again. It would hurt, but it would stand a better chance of working than what we have right now.

XKCD - guy is a well known boffin, with a canny eye on digital culture.


What you should be aware of, is that these days no-one really cares if you know the picture, and can spend the time adding it all in. Most data is accessible, and if you have the mind to link the dots, then you can do it. Oh, and there's some fun in there -


In the Billions section, I'll take on the "Fictional Billionaires".

Carlsine Cullen is from the Twilight Series of books and movies.  He is a vampire and adoptive father of Edward, Emmett and Alice Cullen, as well as Rosalie and Jasper Halewho.  He was born in the 1640s and amassed his wealth through many years of compound interest and investments.

Scrooge McDuck is a cartoon character from many properties including the afternoon cartoon, Duck Tales.  Scrooge McDuck has a "money bin" full of coins and other sorts of collectibles that he routinely goes swimming in.

Bruce Wayne is Batman.  Batman is Bruce Wayne.  He is portrayed in many comic books, graphic novels, TV shows and movies by many different actors.

Artemis Fowl is an Irish child prodigy and a ruthless master criminal from the book Series by the same name. He uses his intelligence to build his family fortune through crime.


i.e. don't read this like you would a financial paper... oh, wait, those have more fiction in.  


p.s. Look for "Value of a solid gold toilet (626 lbs) by year" and "Politicians and allegedly evil plutocratic puppetmasters".

It is definitely missing the Russians out, as well as Chinese - not sure why. I'm presuming for comic effect relying on names people recognise.

Multinationals Add Millions of Jobs Abroad, Cut at Home



US.-based multinational corporations added 1.5 million workers to their payrolls in Asia and the Pacific region during the 2000s, and 477,500 workers in Latin America, while cutting payrolls at home by 864,000, the Commerce Department reported

Another component of biflation: decreased domestic revenue with multiplier effect, but inflation being re-imported back to US. The more Bernanke supports reflation, the greater the feedback loop.

Yup. Blackmarket will grow first because prices are mis-aligned with economic realities. And to get around tariffs, regulations and taxes. But it can have a dark side: sooner or later gangs move in and price-fix, bribe locals and regulate supply. Also do you really want to buy your medications from a dealer with a cellphone? Just more reasons why an economic reset is preferable to inflating a new bubble

According to ABC News, Hezbollah operatives figured out that CIA informants who had infiltrated the Iranian proxy group were meeting with their agency handlers at a Beirut Pizza Hut. How could Hezbollah deduce that location? “The CIA used the codeword ‘PIZZA’ when discussing where to meet with the agents,” ABC reports.

Brilliant Fucks we have working for us.

"Espionage is a risky business," a U.S. official briefed on the developments told ABC News, confirming the loss of the unspecified number of spies over the last six months.

"Many risks lead to wins, but some result in occasional setbacks," the official said.


Occassional setbacks = Intelligence mumble jumble for death by firing squad.

And once again, the Rothschild family is despondent that they didn't make the top 10 wealthiest list.

How tragic it must be for them to be forgotten so often when these sorts of lists are made, and remarkable that Oprah must have a greater net worth than they.

No worries. Globalists and TPTB gonna make it all good when they create the one global currency : The Esperanto. All debts will be re-valued at 1:100, tendered, securitized and re-issued in the new currency. Then we'll all be one big happy, goofy family! Oh, forgot the military industrial complex

World's money supply is around 50 trillion and the total gold supply is about 5 billion ounces, which means a gold backed "world currency" would fetch 10K/ounce. Deal.

So gay?  How's dorm life.  

Whatever, I'll bite.  So presumably new currency is issued because the dollar fails, and this new dollar fetches only 1/10 oz of gold, but I am banned from owning it.  This is like 6 levels of stupid so I'll take them one at a time.   A currency failing would result in gold skyrocketing.  If gold ownership is banned in the subsequent monetary ponzi, it will be worth a fortune if you can get your hands on it.  If it was only worth as much as 3 loaves of bread currently, there would be no reason to ban it. If gold went to 10K in the old currency and $10 in the new, then gas would cost a nickel again and everything would be wonderful.  There just isnt' a scenario where your comment makes any sense, I was just f'n around with the post but at least it was logical.

Greeks are moving their money (and businesses) to Bulgaria?

On DW TV tonight they showed over 2,000 Greeks have moved thier companies across the border for cheaper taxes, cheaper workers and a "government friendly" "safe haven" environment.

Wow...who would have thought...Bulgaria?
