public-domain-nwo-spirit-evil-720x340The global capacity for debt has reached it’s zenith. So-called developed markets and emerging markets have all reached maximum debt load. Of the all the major countries that impact the global GDP name one that’s not fully levered with debt. I’ll wait here while you look for that needle in a haystack.

We came into the bail outs. The G7 had levered up. Then we had the emerging markets lever up and they’re finished levering up and now everybody’s levered up. 

There is no place to go. We can go to an equity model and we can optimize bottom-up but that requires a legitimate pricing function. And when you’re trying to run the whole thing with fake intel, fake science, fake news…The harvesting machine needs a new way to dig and digital currency and digital cash is that way. But you need all those countries in the tent and you need the ability to force everybody into a digital system. Source

The world (tent) must get inline with the idea of global governance and global currency, otherwise, it will not work.

Cryptocurrencies and all the people who believe this digital illusion is going to somehow save us from the evil banksters are overlooking what I have been saying since bitcoin first came onto the scene – it plays into the hands of the banksters and their desire to move us all to a digital currency. If someone believes for a second that Amazon or any other large multinational corporation that conducts retail business is going to accept bitcoin when they have been instructed not to, they are simply living in a fantasy.

That’s why the guys from bitcoin drive me nuts. Because they think “Oh this is how we’re going to be free“. No, you’re prototyping Mr. Globals digital currency.Source

If a person thinks the central banks and their digital currency will COMPETE with bitcoin you are not seeing the entire picture. That is not going to happen – EVER. The reason gold was outlawed in the U.S. in the 1930’s was to keep gold from competing with the Federal Reserve Note. Why would anyone believe the Federal Reserve is going to allow a digital form of currency to compete with their wealth transferring mechanism on a large scale?

Yield Curve Flattens - Is A Trump Recession Looming?

Trump's election is a potential game changer for the Keynesian fiscal policy status quo in Washington.

Interest rates spiked higher across the board in late 2016 in anticipation of potential major fiscal policy changes.

Since early March 2017, however, the yield curve has flattened, sometimes an indicator of a looming recession.

In 1949, under similar monetary and fiscal policy market dynamics, the US economy experienced a recession and US stocks fell over 20% in a 12-month time frame.

This article compares and contrasts the current financial market to that faced by Harry Truman in 1949 when the Fed was also raising rates off the zero lower bound.

Angst in America, Part 4: Disappearing Pensions

Angst in America, Part 4: Disappearing Pensions

“Companies are doing everything they can to get rid of pension plans, and they will succeed.” – Ben Stein

“Lady Madonna, children at your feet
Wonder how you manage to make ends meet
Who finds the money when you pay the rent?
Did you think that money was heaven sent?”

– “Lady Madonna,” The Beatles

170416-01

There was once a time when many American workers had a simple formula for retirement: You stayed with a large business for many years, possibly your whole career. Then at a predetermined age you gratefully accepted a gold watch and a monthly check for the rest of your life. Off you went into the sunset.

That happy outcome was probably never as available as we think. Maybe it was relatively common for the first few decades after World War II. Many of my Baby Boomer peers think a secure retirement should be normal because it’s what we saw in our formative years. In the early 1980s, about 60% of companies had defined-benefit plans. Today it’s about 4% (source: money.CNN). But today defined-benefit plans have ceased to be normal in the larger scheme of things. We witnessed an aberration, a historical anomaly that grew out of particularly favorable circumstances.

Circumstances change. Such pensions are all but gone from US private-sector employers. They’re still common in government, particularly state and local governments; and they are increasingly problematic. They are another source of angst for retirees, government workers who want to retire someday, and the taxpayers and bond investors who finance those pensions. Today, in what will be the first of at least two and possibly more letters focusing on pensions, we’ll begin to examine that angst in more detail. The mounting problems of US and European pension systems are massive on a scale that is nearly incomprehensible.

With the Fed having hiked thrice and calling for three more hikes still, the 2017 Hoisington First Quarter Review contains a call that will have many if not most analysts shaking their heads: “The secular low in bond yields remains in the future, not the past,” says Lacy Hunt.

Marc Faber: Central Bankers Desperate to Keep Colossal Global Debt Bubble Inflated

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter

Posted by Marc Faber - Gloom Boom & Doom Reportrt

on Monday, 10 April 2017 16:44

During this 25+ minute interview, Marc is asked if he thinks the Federal Reserve will increase interest rates 2-3 times more in 2017? Marc thinks the Fed will only raise rates once more in 2017 before the next global financial crisis. He thinks the Federal Reserve will reverse course, start lowering interest rates again and do a large QE program. 

Marc thinks global central bankers are routinely coordinating monetary and interest rate policy as well as exchange rates with each other to prevent a "colossal debt bubble" from bursting. 

Jason and Marc also discuss whether the Fed can hurt Trump's spending programs. Marc thinks Trump will need the Fed's help to fund his spending programs. 

Jason and Marc also discuss current stock market valuations compared to past stock market crashes, whether China will need to devalue the RMB another 20-30% like Kyle Bass predicts, whether bonds are now in a bear market, how people should be diversified, and how President Trump will pay for all of his spending programs.
