VIX ETFs - More Truth





The temptation is great to hedge or seek large returns through the use of these volatility products.  ?Many will make a run for it anyway, but few still will really be able to be successful at it (again ~5% are profitable with skill).  Instead, the gravitational burden of a continuously decaying product assaults both your performance and intelligence (someone's going to earn a lot of money from you taking on these new-aged products but it's not you!) Simply out, It's been a baleful speculative vehicle, across any horizon.

Something Doesn't Add Up: JOLTed Optimism





If there were a robust jobs expansion starting early last year, then it must be considered more than somewhat suspect this year so far. Nonconformity in hires, quits and now layoffs call further into question both openings and the overall employment narrative, not the least of which traces back to the fact that they all share the same benchmark and subjective biases.

Big Pharma Revealed As Puppetmaster Behind TPP Secrecy





When it came to the highly confidential TPP, it was unclear just which corporations were dominant in pulling the strings. Now thanks to more documents published by Wikileaks, and analyzed by the NYT, it appears that "big pharma" is the mastermind behind the Trans Pacific Partnership, which if passed will "empower big pharmaceutical firms to command higher reimbursement rates in the United States and abroad, at the expense of consumers" according to "public health professionals, generic-drug makers and activists opposed to the trade deal."

Hospitals Are Blatantly Ripping Us Off





Most Americans are deathly afraid to go to the hospital these days – and it is because of the immense pain that it will cause to their wallets.  If you want to get on a path that will lead you to bankruptcy, just start going to the hospital a lot.  In America today, hospitals and doctors are blatantly ripping us off and they aren’t making any apologies for it.  As you will read about below, some hospitals mark up treatments by 1,000 percentIf the U.S. health care system was a separate country, it would actually be the 6th largest economy on the entire planet.

Bank of England Head Carney Says Market Rigging Bankers Should Go To Jail





Mark Carney: "Real markets are essential to guarantee prosperity. Not markets that collapse when there is a shock from abroad. Not markets where transactions occur in chat rooms. Not markets where no one appears accountable for anything."  So... not markets which are artificially rigged by $22 trillion in central bank liquidity and which collapse every time the "threat" that any of this preciously liquidity may be taken away?

Blurred Lines: Where Finance Ends And The Real Economy Begins





We should not even want to rebuild the world as it was in the decade of the 2000’s because it was so unbelievably unstable, a fact revealed persistently in the nearly eight years since that peak. Economists and central bankers treated the Panic of 2008 and the Great Recession as if it were a temporary interruption in an otherwise healthy system, a cyclical problem that over time heals on its own. Most of them still, to this day, hold the same view and the world’s economy and financial system is paying the costs of doing so. The eurodollar economy is falling apart and no amount of orthodoxy can reverse it because the eurodollar economy is orthodoxy.

Caught On Tape: Cop Pulls Gun On 2 Kids, Unleashes Profanity-Laden Tirade In Affluent Suburb





We’ll be up front with you and say that this video is disturbing. It’s like a bucket of ice-cold water thrown in the face of the dream world that most people are walking through. Watching riots on TV in places like Baltimore and Ferguson, it’s easy to think, “That couldn’t happen here. All that police violence only happens in poor communities.” Guess again.

What Keeps A Billionaire Awake At Night: "Envy, Hatred, Social Warfare" And The "Destruction Of The Middle Class"





There is something morbidly ironic when one of the world's richest men, in this case South African Johann Rupert, who has made billions (his net worth is roughly $7.5 billion) peddling Cartier jewelry and Chloe fashion as founder and chairman of luxury conglomerate Richemont, whose 20 brands also include Vacheron Constantin and Montblanc, said tension between the rich and poor is set to escalate, that the "envy, hatred and the social warfare" may crush society, and that "we are destroying the middle classes at this stage and it will affect us."

If Things Were Bad in 2008… What's Coming Will be Far Far Worse





The Fed and other Central Banks not only don’t have a clue how to fix the problem, but that they actually have almost no incentive to do so.

White House Admits Economies Of European Allies Crippled By Russian Sanctions





Overnight it was none other than the White House itself which finally admitted that the entire brilliant idea of collapsing the Russian economy by way of sanctions across the western world, ended up hurting European nations (i.e., US partners) who had no choice but to "sacrifice their own economies."

The Slide Toward “Velvet Glove” Fascism Continues





Sometimes we get the feeling the ruling elites are investing the laws they enact with a kind of impertinent, slap-in-your-face black humor. How else to explain the Orwellian names given to the liberty-crushing laws that have been put in place since the “war on terror” started?
