After 2008, we were promised that too-big-to-fail caused by too much debt, credit, and leverage was history. Covid-19 exposed Wall Street’s culture of “Heads I win, tails you bail me out.” That’s not capitalism, it’s extortion. Are globalization’s new record highs a minefield-filled Potemkin village? In 2020, financial markets have set numerous records. In January, […]

Debt matters. In Washington’s swamp, no one CARES about debt. Big government has become more addicted to debt than drug addicts to a pipe full of crack.

Why we need to audit and shutter the U.S. Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve has nothing to do with the federal government and is not a bank.

Inspector general. What a laugh. This is not how democracy works. This is an oligarchy. The “bull markets” over the past decade were based entirely on the Central Banks buying equities and recklessly providing hundreds of trillions in liquidity. Earnings peaked long ago, accounting gimmicks, buybacks el al – only work until they don’t. In the USA, for example, Q4 saw Jerome Powell’s Federal Reserve provide 500 billion in QE, which he dared to say was not QE. Not only that, but what’s worse, much worse is the Federal Reserve is now monetizing debt, washed through primary dealers. Everyone made big money in the past decade, but this new decade we will see the “big unwind,” and it will be ugly.

Deep State Bubbles: Pump, Dump & Blame It on Trump

by Mitch Feierstein about 2 years 8 months ago
