ENDGAME FOR AMERICA : 


DOLLAR LITERALLY A BOMB THAT COULD GO OFF ANY DAY WARNS PETER SCHIFF 

https://www.rt.com/business/498396-dollar-bomb-will-go-off

The scale of money printing in the United States is unprecedented, says veteran stockbroker Peter Schiff. The deficits are “through the roof and the government is spending more money than ever before.”

Schiff, who is CEO of Euro Pacific Capital, told the MoneyShow that more than 60 cents out of every dollar the government is spending is being printed. So, the Federal Reserve is printing more money for the government to spend than the US government is collecting in taxes.



“The myth is that the US economy was strong before Covid. It wasn’t strong at all; it was the weakest it has ever been. It was the biggest bubble that has ever existed. That’s why the economy imploded so quickly as a result of Covid-19 lockdowns. The air started coming out in the fourth quarter of 2018… And the dollar is being wiped out.”



Schiff points out that “everything that the US government did in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis was a mistake.” All of its monetary policy was wrong, all of its fiscal policy was wrong. “As a consequence, we never actually recovered from the crisis, which was caused by the Fed and the government. We simply made all the problems that caused that crisis worse.


America is about to experience inflation on an unprecedented scale, he says. The cost of living is going to skyrocket and it’s going to happen very quickly. “It’s going to hit people like a ton of bricks. And they are not going to see this coming.”

More people will be blindsided by the dollar crisis than by the financial crisis, and the dollar crisis is much worse, Schiff warns. “Because when we had a financial crisis, the Fed was able to print dollars to bail everybody out. When you have a dollar crisis that doesn’t matter anymore. You can’t print dollars because nobody wants them.”

He explains that will be a sovereign debt crisis, which means US Treasuries are going to go bad, as well as all debts denominated in US dollars. The dollar “is going to fall through the floor and inflation is going to ravish the United States,” Schiff predicts, adding: “What’s about to happen is that the world is going to go off the dollar standard and go back to the gold standard. That is where we are headed.”

The current system doesn’t work, you can’t back your currency with an unbacked currency, he says. “The entire American economy is built on the foundation of the dollar being the world’s reserve currency. That is the secret source that makes this economy work. Once the dollar is just another currency, then it’s all over, it’s the end of the game for America.”

According to the economist, “The dollar could collapse any day, it is like literally a bomb. The key is to get money out of  US dollars because it’s the dollar that is going to be collapsing.”  He says it’s reasonable to buy gold to ease the financial pain because “Gold and silver stocks are a bargain.”



COVID 19 : LOCKDOWN OF THE GLOBAL ECONOMY OF PLANET EARTH. DIABOLICAL PROJECT : THE CLOSING DOWN OF 193 NATIONAL ECONOMIES IS NOT A SOLUTION

Planet Lockdown. Devastating economic and social consequences. We are living one of the most serious crises in modern history.  According to Michel Chossudovsky, the coronavirus pandemic is used as a pretext and a justification to close down the global economy, as a means to resolving a public health concern.  A complex decision-making process is instrumental in the closing down of national economies Worldwide. We are led to believe that the lockdown is the solution.

Politicians and health officials in more than 190 countries obey orders emanating from higher authority.  In turn millions of people obey the orders of their governments without questioning the fact that closing down an economy is not the solution but in fact the cause of  global poverty and unemployment.  What we are dealing with is a crime against humanity.  And this diabolical agenda is an election issue in the U.S.  


LOCKDOWNS, CORONAVIRUS, AND BANKS : 
“FOLLOWING THE MONEY”. 
DEVASTATING ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL IMPACTS 
https://www.globalresearch.ca/lockdowns-coronavirus-banks-following-money/5721191?utm_campaign=magnet&utm_source=article_page&utm_medium=related_articles

It usually makes sense to follow the money when seeking understanding of almost any major change. The strategy of following the money in our current convergence of crises in late summer of 2020 leads us directly to the lockdowns. The lockdowns were first imposed on people in the Wuhan area of China. Then other populations throughout the world were told to “shelter in place,” all in the name of combating the COVID-19 virus.

Understanding of the enormous impact of the lockdowns is still developing. The lockdowns are proving to pack a far more devastating punch than any other aspect of the strange sequence of events that is making 2020 a year like no other. Even when the issues are narrowed to those of human health, the lockdowns have had, and will continue to have, far more wide-ranging and devastating impacts than the celebrity virus.

DYING CAPITALISM & THE NEW FEUDALISM
December 14, 2020
https://goldswitzerland.com/dying-capita...-feudalism


Matthew Piepenburg

American exceptionalism, as current COVID and capitalism disasters confirm, has morphed into a distortion that resembles more of a comorbidity than a guiding light. Despite a prior reputation for leading the world in innovation, problem solving and health care, the U.S. is witnessing record hospitalizations in a nation comprising 5% of the global population yet 25% of its COVID infections.

Regardless of one’s politics, the COVID crisis is now an open symptom of failure, not exceptionalism. The same is true of the current crisis facing American capitalism. In its purest form, capitalism is an exceptional system, yet sadly one that is morphing into something that is anything but exceptional.

A CRITICAL TURNING POINT

Regardless of legitimately debatable views on how individuals and policy makers (from central bankers to health organizations) have handled the pandemic, we can all agree that COVID represents a turning point.  The question now is whether it will be a turning point for the worse or the better. One way to forecast this direction is by tracking the current health of U.S. capitalism.

CAPITALISM RE-ASSESSED

Today, with central banks engaged in open Wall Street socialism wherein artificially repressed rates and unlimited QE have directly benefited the two largest asset classes in America, namely real estate and stocks, we can’t deny the cause-and-effect powers (as well as beneficiaries) of such “accommodation.”

It’s an objective fact that 80 % of those assets are owned by the top 10%. Does that feel like capitalism working at a national level, or something far more targeted and far less “free-market” driven?   The very concept of central-bank supported (and Congress-lobbied) capitalism is itself an oxymoron, and requires on honest re-assessment (and some hard questions) regarding the true meaning of capitalism.

Can any system, market or sector, for example, that is directly and exclusively supported by trillions in fiat money creation and decades of artificially repressed (and unnaturally low) interest rates by definition be labeled “free market,” “natural” or even “capitalistic”?

Be honest.

And has the $6+ trillion in Fed money creation since 2008 truly “trickled down” to the real economy  or has it primarily benefited risk asset markets like stocks on the S&P 500…
or real estate owners and commission-based brokers:   Again: Be honest.

Whether you be in the top 10% or the bottom 10%, the answer to such primary questions is empirically obvious. Such asset price inflation (i.e. bubbles) in everything from tech stocks to beach front real estate is not symbolic of the lauded and natural “Darwinism” of competitive, free-market capitalism.

Instead, such bubbles for the top 10% and the consequent wealth disparity that followed for the rest of the country are dangerous indicators of a kind of post-modern feudalism wherein a questionable cabal of policy makers subsidizes a distinct minority of beneficiaries and then calls the result “economic stimulus” as the rest of the country gets poorer by the day.

But again, is that capitalism?

Capitalism, whether defined by Adam Smith or abused by Gordon Gecko, is a dynamic, full-body contact sport of almost blood-thirsty competition played on a level playing field of new ideas, equal capital costs and individual effort. In addition, true capitalism, the kind our fathers knew, was equally designed to create a broad rather than narrow class of winners and prosperity over time.

Do the above charts suggest a broad class of winners?

Capitalism, of course, should reward executives. But by how much?

Since 1978, CEO compensation has grown by 940%, whereas worker compensation for the same period has grown by 12%. In 1965, the average ratio of CEO to median employee salaries was 21:1, today it’s over 320:1.  For Jeff Bezos at Amazon, the ratio is 1.2 million to 1.  Is such data a sign of an evolving capitalism or an indicator of something far more disturbing?

FAIR COMPETITION VS. A RIGGED GAME

Unfortunately, there are other and increasingly clear signs of rigged policies (from the Fed, Congress, SEC or White House) which have less to do with fair competition and compensation—the keystones of healthy capitalism—and far more do with an extended yet media-ignored paradigm of favoritism—i.e. cheating.

Today, a kind of pseudo capitalism has emerged which is neither empathetic toward (or beneficial to) its host nation.  Instead, we have a distorted model of capitalism whose benefits and empathies are uniquely targeted to a singular (parasitic?) group of companies, individuals and markets.  For every member of Congress, for example, there are at least four financial lobbyists (from banks and big-tech) scurrying to influence (i.e. purchase) favorable policy decisions. This suggests healthy capitalism is under the influence of bribery not policy, and backroom deals rather than fair competition.

Of course, any system that is inherently rigged, like the 1919 World Series, is inherently flawed.
Capitalism, when rigged, is no less disgraceful.  We see this rigged game playing out in real time as the weak majority get weaker and the strong minority get stronger in a backdrop that is not a capitalistic “survival of the fittest,” but rather a feudalistic survival of the best-connected.  Record breaking wealth disparity as well as the open and shameful disconnect between a tanking economy and a rising (Fed-supported) securities market is not an homage to capitalism, but rather open proof of its failure.

TESLA, APPLE AND AMAZON—THE NEW CAPITALISM?

Take Tesla. It’s a visionary company, but its stock has been skyrocketing on growth projections and historically low borrowing costs, easily managed by exaggerated share price inflation. In March, it was the 4th most valuable auto company in the world, today it is now the most valuable, worth more than Daimler, Toyota and Volkswagen combined.  Or Apple. It took 12 years to get a $1 trillion market cap, but only 5 months to recently reach $2 trillion.  Are such growth stories a consequence of fair, legitimate and natural free-market capitalism, or have they enjoyed an unfair advantage from the policy jocks?

Consider Amazon. With online sales skyrocketing as citizens are locked at home, Amazon has hired hundreds of thousands of minimum-wage warehouse workers to keep boxes coming to your doorsteps.  We can applaud Amazon for its job creation and raising of the minimum wage. But let us not forget the larger picture in which AMAZON has gamified municipalities through its absurd HQ2 plan which transfers wealth from city police, fire and school districts to its shareholders. Nor should we forget that despite years of a profitless balance sheet and legal tax avoidance, Amazon’s share price bubble has allowed it  to literally kill, gut and bury small businesses across the nation. At the same time, by owning the rails  and engaging in anti-competitive behavior while dumping products and prices due to their access to cheap capital (against which no other companies can compete), Amazon has slaughtered rather than leveled the fair “playing field” upon which true capitalism was designed to be played.

Instead, names like Amazon, Tesla and Apple have prompted openly pro-capitalist thought leaders like Scott Galloway to question whether the pandemic was created, or at least co-opted, for taking the top 10% into the top 1% while sending the remaining 90% downward.

TWO AMERICAS, ZERO CAPITALISM

A recent study by the Robin Hood Foundation, for example, revealed that 32% of the people in New York, the homefield of Wall Street, have been forced to go to a food bank since the onset of the pandemic.  That’s more people in the Empire State seeking free food than those who possess a college degree.  Meanwhile, 1/3 of greater America is worried about paying their rent.

By pure math, we now live in a Dickensonian backdrop by which it is the “best of times” for a tiny minority (from Face-shot real estate brokers to Facebook tech investors) and the “worst of times” for the broader population. Is it truly fair to castigate the real America as “losers” in a so-called Capitalistic competition whose rigged rules and policies ensured who the winners would be before the game could even start?

The rigged game playing right under our noses in the U.S. is not free market capitalism, just as an S&P sitting atop a big, fat, $7+ trillion Fed air-bag, sure as hell aint a free market. Natural price discovery, as all honest Wall Street veterans know, died years ago. Nod to Greenspan, Bernanke, Yellen and Powell.

As a member of the Wall Street elite who benefited from such anti-capitalistic capitalism, I can’t ignore facts to alleviate a fake conscience. The simple truth is that current U.S. markets, competition and politics have nothing to do with fair competition and hence nothing to do with capitalism.

THE NEW FEUDALISM

As Galloway recently observed, “we are barreling toward a nation where 3 million lords are being served by 350 million serfs,” simply because US policy decided to favor corporations over populations as capitalism “collapses upon itself.”

Nor can this modern version of so-called capitalism rely on the “better angel” generosities of billionaires like Bezos or Musk to save the system.  The moral character of overpaid CEO’s will not bring the dying middle class back to its glory days.  Frankly, it’s up to the citizens themselves to get informed rather than angry.  Knowledge begets better results than pitch forks.

America is falling not just because capitalism lost its way or policy-supported CEO’s lack the character and accountabilities of the past. It’s because citizens and their lobbied (bribed) leaders—red, blue and purple–have lost their sanity and are screaming at each other rather than opening a single economics, math, ethics, history or anti-trust book.

Today, the crowd gets its education from tweets and twits, not informed thoughts, sound leadership and patient knowledge or actual book reading.

BREAD & CIRCUS, FEAR & DIVISION

This, of course, makes the mal-informed majority (i.e. the bottom 90%) easier to trick and manipulate.  Decision-makers on top, from ancient Rome to Herr Goebbels, have always understood, and hence exploited, such wide-spread ignorance.

In short, policy anti-heroes serve a mal-informed population a mixed cocktail of either: 1) bread & circus (from Netflix to celebrity virtue-signaling) or 2) fear (from “social-distancing” to COVID death rates) to keep the crowd ignorant, divided and afraid.

Today, most U.S. citizens are blind to the rudimentary basics of Fed policy, currency debasement, lobbying tricks, anti-trust principles, or even viral facts. Thus, as the middle-class flounders and a new financial feudalism replaces genuine capitalism, the mad crowd has no idea where to place its madness other than at each other in an historically divisive era of identity politics replacing anything resembling informed and unifying politics or policies.

Meanwhile, Amazon’s stock climbs as true capitalism crawls, and ancient assets like gold rise, as broken currencies like the dollar, fall.  Such are the symptoms of modern feudalism. Get ready for more.
