John Kellden4,179The Moneyball TeamGoogle+ Visionaries, take 2An update of the circle I previously shared. I've removed most of the big hitters.I figured they're in the ten thousand range or more and will survive being cut. Will share them in a new circle in the not too distant future. I also removed some Google Pages. This is the Moneyball Team of Google+. And I mean that as the highest possible praise.#sharedcircles #sharedcircle #circleshare2012-03-19 13:04:39500648
John Kellden4,179Google+ VisionariesThese 365 people are mandatory to interact with. I suggest you set aside a moment each day for each one in this circle. Which is why I've added 365 people. Seriously, do.Ok, so it's not humanly possible to do that. Think of it as a Google+ smorgasbord of awesome people then.As with my previously shared link of 500 Great Google Plus People, I've looked at these people from a number of different angles. They passed with flying colours. :)#sharedcircles #sharedcircle #circleshare2012-03-19 11:09:54365231829
John Kellden4,057Great Google Plus PeopleWorth Waiting For. I've thrown every heuristic and the kitchen sink into this, pondering from a great many angles, with the intention of creating a shared circle that is nothing other than mindblowing. You won't get instant fame, fortune and world peace by interacting with this bunch of people, but pretty damn close. This is like an online portable, accessible, interactive Chautauqua. And then some. Enjoy!2012-03-17 15:45:4949913914
Glenn Wallis54Save Some Searching Time - Coaching Circle ShareThe Circle that I shared some weeks ago, that was focused on Coaching, also had a lot of people from the world of neuroscience in addition to university based researchers into psychology. I have curated this new Coaching Circle so that it is predominantly just those involved in Coaching - executive, business, life, career etc. (a couple of notable exceptions include +Denise Cummins and +Lilly Calandrello who write some great content that I am sure coaches would love.) I have limited the Circle to include those that post on a regular basis about coaching related themes. If you have any recommendations for additions to this Circle I would love to hear from you but please only if they fit the above criteria. It is great that coaches are making their way onto Google+ I look forward to the occasional Hang Out with some of you in the coming months. Hope this Circle is helpful. Please feel free to share.2012-02-14 16:26:2362220

THE U.S. ECONOMY IS NOW DANGEROUSLY DETACHED FROM REALITY
Lies About National Debt And Fiat Money in Event Horizon Economics

National Debt And The Fiat Money Lie

With the Dow Index hovering near highs of 14,000 our system truly looks to be on a rocket ship to pre-2008 money market bliss.  In a mere five years we have returned to equity spikes that stagger the mind and the wallet.  At least, that’s how it all appears…

What needs to be taken into account, though, is the amount of fiat money being created by the Federal Reserve, and how much of that printed pixie dust currency is fueling our magical flight to Neverland.  Since 2008, our official national debt has increased from $10 trillion to $16.4 trillion, and some estimate $17 trillion to $18 trillion by the end of 2013 (unless, of course, a collapse occurs).  Which means our national debt,which t... more »

MORE ABOUT COLLECTIVE DELUSION

REAL ECONOMY AND VIRTUAL ECONOMY
Yesterday is gone forever and let's hope for a better tomorrow

In older theories of the brain ... left = rational and right = imagination ... in the current theory ... left = virtual and right = real ... we need both to function ... and the corpus callosum that connects them is a vital part ... for example to arrive at our destination ... we drive our car (real) ... using a GPS (virtual) ...

There was a time when the economy was based on real fundamentals ... central banks would regularly alter interest rates ... to tip the balance to act either on the unemployment rate or on the inflation rate … gains and losses were well managed ... bad investments were removed ... and lost jobs were replaced ...

As the economy deteriorated by excessive consumption in the United States ... and social benefits in Europe ... central banks began printing more and more money without new added value … miracle … we no longer had to choose ... we could have full employment without inflation ... there was no need to worry ... something magic had happened ... the illusion was simply based on replacing the currency by debts out of thin air ... and the virtual economy was born ...

This virtual miracle was only possible ... by spending assets accumulated by our parents and grandparents ... as well as pledging future revenues of our children and grandchildren ... but becoming aware that these actual values are not unlimited ... implies that sooner coming back down to earth is inevitable ... and the waking up is bound to be painful ...

The economy in a global virtual world has no precedent in history ... but we can still legitimately sense that there is a price to pay ... anything can happen … but nobody knows exactly what ... hyperinflation, extreme deflation or long stagnation? … banks runs, riots or wars? … for me something more important than a recession or even a depression is in the making ... I believe that we live in a transition of historical proportion ... full of challenges and opportunities ... towards a new world … that I hope will be more humane, more free and more united ...___MORE ABOUT COLLECTIVE DELUSION

HYPERINFLATION OR EXTREME DEFLATION?

A DIFFERENT LOOK AT GOLD, INFLATION AND DEFLATION
The arguments to own gold right now are so intuitively obvious that one feels a fool not to own it. In past history, there has never been a case where "money printing" didn't eventually lead to runaway inflation. Unfortunately, for the gold thesis, we don't have an economy based on cash, we have an economy based on debt...

Therefore, ironically, the reverse situation now abides. Central Banks must monetize debt in order to keep the economy afloat, or else the pyramid of debt would collapse under its own weight. We are at the stage now, where "someone" somewhere across the global economy must be accumulating enough debt to keep demand high enough to prevent a global economic collapse. We all know that the Fed plans to monetize another trillion dollars of debt this year. Is it just a coincidence that the U.S. deficit will also be a trillion dollars this year? What if the Fed monetized less than a trillion - that would cause a contraction in the money supply as private investors would have to trade cash to buy government bonds.

The Paradox of Thrift
All of this is predicted by the paradox of thrift i.e. we can't all pay down debt and save more or the economy will collapse. One man's consumption is another man's income. Leading up to 2008, it was the job of the private sector and households to accumulate debt. Now it's the job of sovereigns to accumulate debt. All of this accumulated debt is massively deflationary. Even though pollyannas tell us that debt service costs (aka. interest rates) have never been lower, everyone in the real world knows that massive debts that are not self-amortizing, eventually need to be rolled over. And in order to roll them over, the borrower needs to prove his solvency. The entire model doesn't go in reverse. In order to continue debt expansion, incomes must be constantly rising. Contracting incomes lead to default. Default leads to asset liquidation and 'repricing', as risk assets get puked back into the market.

Unfortunately, gold having no intrinsic value, will be one of the first assets that gets liquidated (bread and ammunition being the last). Central Banks globally have monetized $9 trillion in debt in the past four years, with a resulting effect on gold. Time is running out for the gold advertisers to unload their remaining inventory on a gullible public, because we know for certain that borrowers' incomes are heading in the wrong direction.

Bernankenstein v.s. Reality - Place Your Bets
Bernanke is smart enough to know what happens to global markets if he stops buying assets. However, he is fool enough to think he can indefinitely forestall economic reality. Historically, monetary policy was never used for four years straight to support an economy or markets. It was used for short bursts during recessions to ease the cost of borrowing and then ultimately reversed during expansion. This idea that Central Banks can indefinitely bid up assets while we all stand around like idiots waiting for the economy to return from China, is a delusion of the first order. And what will Bernanke say when time runs out on his historical experiment in attempting to defy reality? What did Greenspan say after the housing bubble burst ? - he denied that 1% interest rates had anything to do with it...Apparently lowering the price of something to incentivize demand - aka. Econ 101 - works for every other asset class, except money.  

When Confidence Goes Away, So Will The Money...
The real root of the gold fantasy, is that we live in an infantile society that just implicitly assumes there will always be enough money around to buy the trinkets, iPhones and gold bullion offered for demand. This society has never known any different. The last of the Great Depression survivors are all gone now. The Lost Boys of the Idiocracy even reinvented the history around the Weimar Republic and the great hyperinflation. Contrary to the Lost Boys' interpretation of hyperinflation as the problem - it was the solution, to extreme deflation and crushing debt burdens. The difference between an economy in hyperinflation versus one in extreme deflation is that the former is an economy whose heart is beating too quickly. The latter is an economy whose heart is not beating at all. Both situations are bad, but one is a lot worse. All it takes to fully understand extreme deflation is to visualize the 99% of junk in a shopping mall that no one really needs, and then imagine the type of economy where no one can afford any of it anymore.

HARD LANDING FROM COLLECTIVE DELUSION HAS BECOME INEVITABLE

THE U.S. ECONOMY IS NOW DANGEROUSLY DETACHED FROM REALITY
Lies About National Debt And Fiat Money in Event Horizon Economics

National Debt And The Fiat Money Lie

With the Dow Index hovering near highs of 14,000 our system truly looks to be on a rocket ship to pre-2008 money market bliss.  In a mere five years we have returned to equity spikes that stagger the mind and the wallet.  At least, that’s how it all appears…

What needs to be taken into account, though, is the amount of fiat money being created by the Federal Reserve, and how much of that printed pixie dust currency is fueling our magical flight to Neverland.  Since 2008, our official national debt has increased from $10 trillion to $16.4 trillion, and some estimate $17 trillion to $18 trillion by the end of 2013 (unless, of course, a collapse occurs).  Which means our national debt, which took decades to reach the $10 trillion mark, will have nearly doubled in only six years!  

So, what has a doubling of our national debt in such a short span of time bought us?  Well, credit markets remain frozen, property markets remain stagnant, poverty is at historic levels, welfare recipients are at epic highs, and consumer activity and GDP is back at 2008 lows.  Where did all that printed money go?  Where was it spent?  To answer that question, we only need to find what area of the economy has seen the most positive (or fantastical) activity.  What sector is seeing a massive boost while the rest tumbles?

I suggest that a large portion of QE1 through QE3 has gone to prop up the stock market, and nothing else.  I suggest that American taxpayers are fronting the bill for the equities bonanza we see today.  I suggest that the Dow is being used as a Red Herring to distract the populous for as long as possible while real assets are being snapped up and hoarded by international banks and foreign entities.  I suggest that we are being leached dry and that the parasites are almost ready to move on…

When will it all end?  Perhaps sooner than many people think.  The decision by D.C. to delay talks on the so-called “Fiscal Cliff” until March may not be coincidence.  Extensive cuts in federal spending are absolutely necessary and cannot be dismissed forever, but, because the last vestiges of our system that still operate do so through government money, such cuts will cause immediate damage to the economy, including possible default and dollar devaluation.  Refusal to make cuts will result in credit downgrades, currency inflation, and a loss of the greenback’s world reserve status.  There is no “right” way out of this quandary.  

When this collapse is initiated, it would certainly behoove all parties involved, including central banks, international banks, and criminal politicians, to have a scapegoat handy for the citizenry to direct their rage at.

Event Horizon Economics 

An “Event Horizon” in physics is a moment or singularity in spacetime at which a gravitational pull becomes so great that there is no way to escape it.  It is a point of no return.  I believe America’s economy has reached its own Event Horizon.  Our system is now entirely fiat driven, with very little or no true economy left.  Without constant injections from the Fed, and perpetually low interest rates, the country would implode tomorrow.  This is not recovery.  Actually, I’m not sure what to call it.  

Today, independent economic analysts cannot look to the numbers to determine future trends.  Most are fake, and the rest are ugly, and I’m not sure much else can be said in their regard.  Instead, we must now look to events, rather than statistics, because our country has been maneuvered into a position of utmost frailty.  Like an avalanche shelf waiting for that perfectly timed disturbance to trigger its roaring collapse.  All that is needed is a macro-crisis, and it is no great feat for such a thing to be created in our tension filled global environment.

War in Syria and Iran leading to a tripling of energy prices.  Sanctions and strife with North Korea leading to Chinese economic retribution.  Conflict between China and Japan, again leading to Chinese economic warfare and perhaps real warfare.  An opportune “cyber attack” which could be used as an excuse for a market crash and even an internet shutdown.  A “political impasse” between Reps and Dems which leads to a default of U.S. credit.  Any one of these catastrophes could easily occur (with a little nudge from some well placed people) and feed a wider global tragedy.  The important thing to remember is that while this event will be blamed for the breakdown, it was international banks, the Federal Reserve, and elements of our own government that made the domino effect possible.  They put the pieces in place.  The act that knocks them over is secondary.

I have spent the past seven years writing about “potential” threats to our overall system, but these dangers were always just beyond our sight.  Just around the corner.  Today, it is as if the journey is over, and all those threats have materialized right before my eyes as real, and imminent.  I am watching that which I warned of come to fruition, and this is certainly not a pleasant thing.  What is valuable, though, is what we have all done in the Liberty Movement with the time that we had.  From when I began writing for the movement until now, I have seen an overwhelming increase in public awareness.  It may not be obvious to newer activists, but it is there all the same.  While we still face disparaging odds, and millions upon millions of oblivious bystanders, there is, amidst these darker moments, a steadfast community of free men and women forming.  I have full faith in the future.  Much more so than I ever did before.  Our economy may be detached from reality, but our endeavors as individuals will not be.  Our resolve will be the great game changer.  Not fiscal calamity.

When will it all end?  Perhaps sooner than many people think.  The decision by D.C. to delay talks on the so-called “Fiscal Cliff” until March may not be coincidence.  Extensive cuts in federal spending are absolutely necessary and cannot be dismissed forever, but, because the last vestiges of our system that still operate do so through government money, such cuts will cause immediate damage to the economy, including possible default and dollar devaluation.  Refusal to make cuts will result in credit downgrades, currency inflation, and a loss of the greenback’s world reserve status.  There is no “right” way out of this quandary.  

When this collapse is initiated, it would certainly behoove all parties involved, including central banks, international banks, and criminal politicians, to have a scapegoat handy for the citizenry to direct their rage at.

Event Horizon Economics 

An “Event Horizon” in physics is a moment or singularity in spacetime at which a gravitational pull becomes so great that there is no way to escape it.  It is a point of no return.  I believe America’s economy has reached its own Event Horizon.  Our system is now entirely fiat driven, with very little or no true economy left.  Without constant injections from the Fed, and perpetually low interest rates, the country would implode tomorrow.  This is not recovery.  Actually, I’m not sure what to call it.  

Today, independent economic analysts cannot look to the numbers to determine future trends.  Most are fake, and the rest are ugly, and I’m not sure much else can be said in their regard.  Instead, we must now look to events, rather than statistics, because our country has been maneuvered into a position of utmost frailty.  Like an avalanche shelf waiting for that perfectly timed disturbance to trigger its roaring collapse.  All that is needed is a macro-crisis, and it is no great feat for such a thing to be created in our tension filled global environment.

War in Syria and Iran leading to a tripling of energy prices.  Sanctions and strife with North Korea leading to Chinese economic retribution.  Conflict between China and Japan, again leading to Chinese economic warfare and perhaps real warfare.  An opportune “cyber attack” which could be used as an excuse for a market crash and even an internet shutdown.  A “political impasse” between Reps and Dems which leads to a default of U.S. credit.  Any one of these catastrophes could easily occur (with a little nudge from some well placed people) and feed a wider global tragedy.  The important thing to remember is that while this event will be blamed for the breakdown, it was international banks, the Federal Reserve, and elements of our own government that made the domino effect possible.  They put the pieces in place.  The act that knocks them over is secondary.

I have spent the past seven years writing about “potential” threats to our overall system, but these dangers were always just beyond our sight.  Just around the corner.  Today, it is as if the journey is over, and all those threats have materialized right before my eyes as real, and imminent.  I am watching that which I warned of come to fruition, and this is certainly not a pleasant thing.  What is valuable, though, is what we have all done in the Liberty Movement with the time that we had.  From when I began writing for the movement until now, I have seen an overwhelming increase in public awareness.  It may not be obvious to newer activists, but it is there all the same.  While we still face disparaging odds, and millions upon millions of oblivious bystanders, there is, amidst these darker moments, a steadfast community of free men and women forming.  I have full faith in the future.  Much more so than I ever did before.  Our economy may be detached from reality, but our endeavors as individuals will not be.  Our resolve will be the great game changer.  Not fiscal calamity.

A SECRET GLOBAL BANK REVEALED

THE CENTRAL WORLD BANK WHO SECRETLY CONTROLS THE GLOBE MONEY SUPPLY
Located in Basel, Switzerland, the BANK FOR INTERNATIONAL SETTLEMENTS is the central bank of 58 central banks. Most people have never heard of this unelected powerful international organization which has complete immunity from taxation and from national laws.

BIS has far more power over how any national economies, including the US, will perform over the course of the next year than any politician does. Every two months, the central bankers of the world gather in Basel for another “Global Economy Meeting”.  During those meetings, decisions are made which affect every man, woman and child on the planet, BIS is an organization that was founded by the global elite and it operates for their benefit. It is intended to be one of the key cornerstones of the emerging one world economic system.

Every two months, more than a dozen bankers meet here on Sunday evenings to talk and dine on the 18th floor. At the table are the chiefs of the world’s biggest central banks, representing countries that annually produce more than $51 trillion of gross domestic product, three-quarters of the world’s economic output. No staff members are allowed into these meetings, and they are conducted in an atmosphere of absolute secrecy. The gatherings yield no transcripts or minutes.

Here is how BIS achieves the control of currencies. It currently holds 7% of the world’s available foreign exchange funds whose unit of account was switched in March of 2003 from the Swiss gold franc to Special Drawing Rights (SDR), an artificial fiat “money” with a value based on a basket of currencies (44% U.S. dollar, 34% euro, 11% Japanese yen, 11% pound sterling). The bank also controls a huge amount of gold, which it both stores and lends out, giving it great leverage over the metal’s price and the marketplace power that brings, since gold is still the only universal currency. BIS gold reserves were listed on its 2005 annual report (the most recent) as 712 tons. How that breaks down into member banks’ deposits and the BIS personal stash is unknown. By controlling foreign exchange currency, plus gold, the BIS can go a long way toward determining the economic conditions in any given country.

The “Basel Tower” building  looks like the “Babel Tower” and its name is only one letter off … good or bad omen? …

_____________________________________________________________

Source: theidealistrevolution.com

It’s time to admit that we live in a false economy. Smoke and mirrors are used to make us believe the economy is real, but it’s all an elaborate illusion.

Out of one side of the establishment’s mouth we hear excitement about “green shoots”, and out of the other side comes breathless warnings of fiscal cliffs and the urgent need for unlimited bailouts by the Fed.

We hear the people begging for jobs and the politicians promising them, but politicians can’t create jobs. We see people camped out to buy stuff on Black Friday indicating the consumer economy is seemingly thriving, only to find out everything was bought on credit.

The corporate media does their best to distract us from seeing anything real. We see the media glorify Kim Kardashian who got rich by being famous, and became famous merely by being rich. She got front page coverage on Huffington Post this week because her cat died.  Enough said.

Meanwhile the financial media makes the economy seem complicated and they ban anyone who speaks truthfully about the economy from their airwaves.

Is it any wonder why people are angry and confused about the economy?

Well, hopefully these signs that we live in a false economy will help clear up some of that confusion.

1. Fake Jobs: It’s not just that the “official” unemployment numbers are a fraud, the actual jobs are fake as well. Ask yourself how many professions actually produce something of value? 80% of jobs could disappear tomorrow and it wouldn’t affect basic human survival or happiness in the least. Yes, in our society we need money to survive – and jobs equal money – but that doesn’t mean a “job” has any actual benefit to society.  More on this in the next point…

2. Problems Create Jobs, Not Solutions: We can’t fix real problems, because it would destroy more fake jobs. We can’t end the wars and bring all of the personnel home when the jobless rate is already suffering. We can’t end the War on Drugs because where would the DEA agents, prison guards, the court system, parole officers, and the rest of their support staff work. We can’t simplify the tax code because the bookkeepers, CPAs, accounting professors, and tax attorneys would be unemployed. We cannot reduce the bureaucracy of government or streamline healthcare because paper pushers have few other notable skills. We can’t stop spying on Americans because it now employs millions of people. We can’t restrict the Wall Street casino, or hardly anyone will be left with a job. Finally, what will happen to university jobs when people either realize their product is not worth the cost or they discover they can get the same education online for nearly free? In other words, we need these manufactured problems to create phony employment.

3. Money Has No Value:  Money is the biggest illusion of all. Our money is loaned into existence with arbitrary interest rates by a private monopoly. It is an IOU. It only has value because a law says it has value, and that value fluctuates based on how much supply is in the economy which, again, is controlled by a for-profit monopoly. It’s actual value is zero since it is just a piece of paper with fancy ink on it. The only things with real value to humans are skills (labor), tools and materials, food and water, and energy.

4. The Fed Now Buys 90% of the Nation’s Debt: Speaking of money, the Federal Reserve loans money to the US government who issues bonds to cover their spending. Those bonds are sold on the open market through auctions to investors who believe in the ability of the United States to make good on those bonds. Apparently, the US has no more investors because the Fed is now buying 90% of new Treasury bonds. This is called monetizing debt, or, essentially, monetizing money. That’s what a Ponzi scheme does. This acts to keep interest rates artificially low because they’d have to raise them to attract outside “investors”.  In layman terms, our whole monetary system is a paper tiger, a house of cards, or whatever metaphor you want to use for fake.

5. What is the Value of Anything?  The price discovery mechanism, or the process to determine the value of an asset in the marketplace, has become so convoluted that determining the genuine value of anything has become nearly impossible. Between government subsidizes for things like food, fuel, education, housing, insurance and even cars; taxes, regulations and laws; the manipulation of the value of money and interest rates; Wall Street gambling on commodities; what is the real value of something? For example, why does an ounce of marijuana (a weed that can grow anywhere) cost up to $500?  Is that the real value based on labor and materials, and supply and demand? Of course not. Its value is inflated mainly due to laws and regulations.

6. Failure is Rewarded:  You know we live in a false economy when failure is rewarded and success is penalized. Citizens everywhere are being told they need to tighten their belts, work harder so we can bailout the failed government, banks, insurance companies and even car companies. And when we work harder and achieve some success, they tax it heavily to indefinitely pay for these fraudulent institutions. Yet this infinite money creation and taxation is light years from solving the root cause of the problem. The reality is that the banks’ solutions are the problem, enriching the investor class at the expense of the middle class. Global bankers are playing with taxpayer money – and the money of many future generations – in a global casino royale that is destined to fail so they can take the people’s assets. They are all-in; but their money is fake, and our assets put at risk are real.

7. Corporate entities have the same rights as humans, but not the same punishments:  When the Supreme Court ruled that corporations have free-speech rights of people, it was one of the final nails in the coffin of the republic. Monied interests can now openly finance elections and buy the legislation they need to operate with impunity. Corporations may be comprised of humans, but they are not subjected to the same standard of humanity. It was profoundly argued in the article What if BP Were a Human Being? that judged by common standards of morality, decency, and previously agreed-upon definitions of criminality, BP would be judged a psychopathic killer … and immortal. Ditto for the rest leading the predatory corporate pack; the most obvious being defense contractors.  And since these corporations are now joined at the hip with government itself, what does that make government? By changing definitions, they are attempting to change reality. But that still doesn’t make it the truth.

8. People buy things they don’t need with money they don’t have: In a type of trickle-down debt whirlpool, the government’s rampant spending without sufficient assets to back it up is mirrored in the behavior of the American consumer. Despite inflation, rising unemployment, and a continued collapse in real estate, it hasn’t stopped credit spending. The Associated Press just reported that for the month of October:

Americans swiped their credit cards more often in October and borrowed more to attend school and buy cars. The increases drove U.S. consumer debt to an all-time high.
The Federal Reserve said Friday that consumers increased their borrowing by $14.2 billion in October from September. Total borrowing rose to a record $2.75 trillion.
Borrowing in the category that covers autos and student loans increased by $10.8 billion. Borrowing on credit cards rose by $3.4 billion, only the second monthly increase in the past five months. (Source)
Most troubling is the type of borrowing highlighted. The worst possible borrowing would be these negative-return investments such as student loans, credit cards, and cars. It is magical thinking taken to the highest degree.

9. Entrepreneurs are punished: It has become nearly impossible to make a simple living on your own. America has become a land filled with bureaucratic red tape that actively thwarts small business creation and criminalizes independence. There is perhaps no better example of this than the attacks waged against the ultimate entrepreneurial endeavor of self-reliance: the family farm. Through collectivist models such as Agenda 21, long-running family farms are being shut down and supplanted with “protected zones.” In the most recent case, a family oyster farm was shut downbased on provably false scientific data that aimed to demonstrate negative environmental and economic impacts. It was completely fake, ending an 80-year local business that generated 50,000 tourists per year and employed 30 full-time local residents. In many of these cases the federally stolen property winds up in the hands of developers who have no interest in a true local economy. It is an inherent part of any false economy to create dependence where none should exist at all. A five-minute video that can be seen here sums up the American economy of illusions and the death of the American Dream.

10. Engineered Slavery: Do you think slavery died in the 1800s?  Think again. Economic hitmen (lenders) have successfully enslaved-by-debt everything from nations, entire industries, state and local governments and nearly every person on the planet. And they bought your servitude with money they never had, they simply created it out of thin air. Even if an individual doesn’t have any bank financing or credit cards, they still pay the private Federal Reserve through inflation and income taxes. As author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, John Perkins, would say: the time has come for the banks to collect their “pound of flesh” from average citizens by way of higher taxes, less social services, and taking your pensions — “austerity.” For an enlightening explanation of how economic hitmen work their dark magic please watch this video.  If you’re still confused, see these10 signs you might be a slave.  Another, more obvious, form of engineered slavery is prison labor. Laws and regulations are specifically created to add to the prison population which enriches the corporations that own them, while local communities actually become poorer and more dangerous (source).

As George Carlin said, “It’s called the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it.” It would be bad enough if it were contained to only one country, but we are now experiencing a global collective dreaming that fantasizes about a government figuring things out just in the nick of time. However, in the real world, the collapse has begun in earnest. Until we are committed to counter the 10 points above, we will remain in the grip of an hallucination. However, there are encouraging signs through protests worldwide, alternative currency movements, and myriad creative solutions in the most affected countries like Iceland, Greece, and Spain that people are beginning to shake off their sleep, look in the mirror and realize that the dream economy they have been sold was designed to make them seek solutions in entirely the wrong direction.___MORE ABOUT OUR COLLECTIVE HALLUCINATION

The reality is that the banks’ solutions are the problem, enriching the investor class at the expense of the middle class. Global bankers are playing with taxpayer money – and the money of many future generations – in a global casino royale that is destined to fail so they can take the people’s assets. They are all-in; but their money is fake, and our assets put at risk are real.

7. Corporate entities have the same rights as humans, but not the same punishments:  When the Supreme Court ruled that corporations have free-speech rights of people, it was one of the final nails in the coffin of the republic. Monied interests can now openly finance elections and buy the legislation they need to operate with impunity. Corporations may be comprised of humans, but they are not subjected to the same standard of humanity. It was profoundly argued in the article What if BP Were a Human Being? that judged by common standards of morality, decency, and previously agreed-upon definitions of criminality, BP would be judged a psychopathic killer … and immortal. Ditto for the rest leading the predatory corporate pack; the most obvious being defense contractors.  And since these corporations are now joined at the hip with government itself, what does that make government? By changing definitions, they are attempting to change reality. But that still doesn’t make it the truth.

8. People buy things they don’t need with money they don’t have: In a type of trickle-down debt whirlpool, the government’s rampant spending without sufficient assets to back it up is mirrored in the behavior of the American consumer. Despite inflation, rising unemployment, and a continued collapse in real estate, it hasn’t stopped credit spending. The Associated Press just reported that for the month of October:

Americans swiped their credit cards more often in October and borrowed more to attend school and buy cars. The increases drove U.S. consumer debt to an all-time high.
The Federal Reserve said Friday that consumers increased their borrowing by $14.2 billion in October from September. Total borrowing rose to a record $2.75 trillion.
Borrowing in the category that covers autos and student loans increased by $10.8 billion. Borrowing on credit cards rose by $3.4 billion, only the second monthly increase in the past five months. (Source)
Most troubling is the type of borrowing highlighted. The worst possible borrowing would be these negative-return investments such as student loans, credit cards, and cars. It is magical thinking taken to the highest degree.

9. Entrepreneurs are punished: It has become nearly impossible to make a simple living on your own. America has become a land filled with bureaucratic red tape that actively thwarts small business creation and criminalizes independence. There is perhaps no better example of this than the attacks waged against the ultimate entrepreneurial endeavor of self-reliance: the family farm. Through collectivist models such as Agenda 21, long-running family farms are being shut down and supplanted with “protected zones.” In the most recent case, a family oyster farm was shut downbased on provably false scientific data that aimed to demonstrate negative environmental and economic impacts. It was completely fake, ending an 80-year local business that generated 50,000 tourists per year and employed 30 full-time local residents. In many of these cases the federally stolen property winds up in the hands of developers who have no interest in a true local economy. It is an inherent part of any false economy to create dependence where none should exist at all. A five-minute video that can be seen here sums up the American economy of illusions and the death of the American Dream.

10. Engineered Slavery: Do you think slavery died in the 1800s?  Think again. Economic hitmen (lenders) have successfully enslaved-by-debt everything from nations, entire industries, state and local governments and nearly every person on the planet. And they bought your servitude with money they never had, they simply created it out of thin air. Even if an individual doesn’t have any bank financing or credit cards, they still pay the private Federal Reserve through inflation and income taxes. As author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, John Perkins, would say: the time has come for the banks to collect their “pound of flesh” from average citizens by way of higher taxes, less social services, and taking your pensions — “austerity.” For an enlightening explanation of how economic hitmen work their dark magic please watch this video.  If you’re still confused, see these10 signs you might be a slave.  Another, more obvious, form of engineered slavery is prison labor. Laws and regulations are specifically created to add to the prison population which enriches the corporations that own them, while local communities actually become poorer and more dangerous (source).

As George Carlin said, “It’s called the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it.” It would be bad enough if it were contained to only one country, but we are now experiencing a global collective dreaming that fantasizes about a government figuring things out just in the nick of time. However, in the real world, the collapse has begun in earnest. Until we are committed to counter the 10 points above, we will remain in the grip of an hallucination. However, there are encouraging signs through protests worldwide, alternative currency movements, and myriad creative solutions in the most affected countries like Iceland, Greece, and Spain that people are beginning to shake off their sleep, look in the mirror and realize that the dream economy they have been sold was designed to make them seek solutions in entirely the wrong direction.___

From the Fiscal Cliff to the Trillion Cliff

The fiscal cliff ... much ado about nothing
_________________________________________________________

After months of suspense ... the government agreed to changes in tax rates ... for people with annual income of over $450,000 ...which should raise roughly $600 billion in new revenue over 10 years ... big deal ... instead of the 16-17 trillion deficit that we keep hearing ... the actual liabilities of the US federal government including future committed benefits ... already exceed $86.8 trillion ...

As I indicated in my December 10 post ... nothing meaningful would happen between December 31 and January 1 ...  the fiscal cliff was nothing else than a political reality show ... where the suspense was all about less than 1% of the problem ... even without real resolution ... only kicking the can a little further ... it's only entertainment folks ...

... I feel a suspense à la Hitchcock who would place a bomb under the table of two people having breakfast ... much ado about nothing as the bomb will not explode ... btw the word 'cliff' is also included in 'cliffhanger' ... enjoy the next reality show coming to a media next to you ... Gun Control: will life prevail over death? ... to keep diverting your attention from Uncle Ben ... worsening the actual trillion cliff by the day ...

We are not consulted on the world's affaire ... but we can protect our family and get closer to our friends ... ... may 2013 bring you passion and good mood ... luck and success ... memorable events ... good news ... lots of love and friendship ...  light and harmony ...

Investment strategy to protect your loved ones and your money

A large number of people are asking Why being worried while everything is fine? ... well ... because things are not fine ... today's lifestyle is paid for with astronomical debts by mortgaging many times each and all existing assets ... debts have become the money ... banks are keying virtual numbers in your account ... with amounts representing money they don't have ... and even worse that never existed ... this Ponzi scheme can only last as long the volume of debts keeps growing ... that growth is exponential ...and will always reach a mathematical point of impossibility to grow further ...

Denial is no longer an option ... be angry and worried instead ... be prepared ... you owe it for yourself and your loved ones ... and don't count on excuses like ... we were caught by surprise or nobody saw it coming ... because you are being warned now ...

This Community is 1 week old and has already 132 members ... and barely any discussion ... which illustrates the collective denial ... every one of you feels that this is a critical issue ... but no one wants to talk about it ... because it implies immediate key life decisions ... 

To illustrate this kind of irresponsible delusion ... just imagine a car driving full speed towards a wall ... as the passenger expresses his concerns ... the driver responds _so far so good!!!_ ... please take your destiny in your owns hands NOW ...

We will be more specific as we go ... please join the discussion and share this Community with your friends ... they will thank you ...

We are living in a paradigm shift of historic proportion ... tomorrow's world will be very different than today's ... yesterday's values will be replaced by new ones ... the transition is very uncomfortable ... let's discuss what you should do now to protect your loved ones and your money?

Assumption #1 ... when the Global Ponzi bursts, money will lose almost all its value ...
Assumption #2 ... all intangible assets materialized with ink on paper will evaporate ...
Assumption #3 ... survival spending will overrule consumption ...
Assumption #4 ... tangible assets will still be there in the long run ...
Assumption #5 ... tangible assets have bargain prices today ...

Here are my my practical investments recommendations for the mega rich, the wealthy and the penniless ...

Like anyone else mega rich should  prepare themselves for survival ...  they can buy a farm to secure food and acquire diamonds (much lighter to carry than gold) if they must move ... depending of their means others should acquire farmland and cultivate their own food ... the least fortunate should grow food in their backyard ... penniless should get closer to and help those new food producers ...

Now about capital preservation ... only tangible goods will survive in the long run ... gold and real estate are on the top of the list ... the mega rich should look at (1) capital preservation, (2) appreciation and (3) carrying revenues ... as putting a roof over ones head will always be a need ... residential real estate is definitively the safest way to invest ... US home prices are at their lowest level in 100 years ... there are opportunities fo every budget ... from land to single-family homes to multi-family complexes  ... in times of crisis fortunes are always made in real estate ...

Don't be unprepared for the 2013 Global Ponzi burst ... the warning is here ... you will no longer have the excuse that it came by surprise ... let's discuss these very critical issues and analyze in greater details the preparation options ... in future posts I'll tell you how to monitor the imminence of the Ponzi burst ...___

In times of peace and prosperity we can live anywhere ... in times of economic crisis we should live where we earn a living ... in times of war we should live where we save our skin.

We are living in a paradigm shift of historic proportion ... tomorrow's world will be very different than today's ... yesterday's values will be replaced by new ones ... the transition is very uncomfortable ... let's discuss what you should do now to protect your loved ones and your money?

Investment strategies to protect your money in troubled times
_________________________________________________________

In times of peace and prosperity we can live anywhere ... in times of economic crisis we should live where we earn a living ... in times of war we should live where we save our skin.

We are living in a paradigm shift of historic proportion ... tomorrow's world will be very different than today's ... yesterday's values will be replaced by new ones ... the transition is very uncomfortable ... let's discuss what you should do now to protect your loved ones and your money?

Assumption #1 ... when the Global Ponzi bursts, money will lose almost all its value ...
Assumption #2 ... all intangible assets materialized with ink on paper will evaporate ...
Assumption #3 ... survival spending will overrule consumption ...
Assumption #4 ... tangible assets will still be there in the long run ...
Assumption #5 ... tangible assets have bargain prices today ...

Here are my my practical investments recommendations for the mega rich, the wealthy and the penniless ...

Like anyone else mega rich should  prepare themselves for survival ...  they can buy a farm to secure food and acquire diamonds (much lighter to carry than gold) if they must move ... depending of their means others should acquire farmland and cultivate their own food ... the least fortunate should grow food in their backyard ... penniless should get closer to and help those new food producers ...

Now about capital preservation ... only tangible goods will survive in the long run ... gold and real estate are on the top of the list ... the mega rich should look at (1) capital preservation, (2) appreciation and (3) carrying revenues ... as putting a roof over ones head will always be a need ... residential real estate is definitively the safest way to invest ... US home prices are at their lowest level in 100 years ... there are opportunities fo every budget ... from land to single-family homes to multi-family complexes  ... in times of crisis fortunes are always made in real estate ...

Don't be unprepared for the 2013 Global Ponzi burst ... the warning is here ... you will no longer have the excuse that it came by surprise ... let's discuss these very critical issues and analyze in greater details the preparation options ... in future posts I'll tell you how to monitor the imminence of the Ponzi burst ...___

Ignore banks and countries numbers ... they are all fake
_________________________________________________________

You may be surprised to hear a civil engineer telling you to ignore numbers ... but all Ponzi crooks are showing fake numbers ... the most famous example is Madoff who confessed that 100% of his numbers were fabricated ...
... one should look at numbers both from a numerical point of vue ... and from their hidden meaning ... banks balance sheets are fake ... and countries statistics are fake ... both are hiding their astronomical debts ... inflating their revenues ... and showing toxic assets at full value ...

... read numbers with both sides of the brain ... have fun ... today is 12/12/12 ... the next such occurrence will happen on 01/01/2101 ... wish you a long life ... ;)___Happy 12/12/12

My take on a collective delusion

Welcome to all new Community members

2013: THE YEAR OF THE GLOBAL PONZI BURST - Open discussion
What is the global Ponzi and how will it burst?
__________________________________________________________

We cannot fight the wave but we can learn to surf.

The USA and most European countries have accumulated astronomical debts to the highest historical levels ... as those countries economies are worsening so are their fiscal revenues ... forcing them to borrow more and more ... only making their big debts even bigger ...as their net revenues barely covers their interest payments ... there is no hope that they will ever be able to reimburse those debts ... technically they are already bankrupt ...

To delay the sovereign debts defaults ... central banks have been using their photocopy machines ... to print money and add more debts to already exorbitant debts ... these monetary artifices only allow to buy time ... without solving anything ... until the inevitable default will happen ... so far Greece ... ireland ... Portugal ... somewhat for Spain and Italy ... kicked the can farther and farther ,,, next in line is France ... who has been able this far to hide its insolvency ... but for which there will be no possible bailout ...

Why printing money cannot last forever? ... because it only creates virtual debt that doesn't add value to the economy ... and without debt collection the lending banks can't survive ... bailouts only help temporarily the lenders ... but does not help at all the borrowers ... moreover central banks represent only a very small fraction of the global debt ... and there is so much they can do ...

Yesterday's subprime bubble looks very pale in comparison with today's Ponzi sovereign debts ... a European country defaulting on its sovereign debt will trigger other countries defaults ... triggering a major banks crisis ... followed by bank runs ...  as depositors will want to withdraw their funds ... they will find out that THE BANKS HAVE NO MONEY!!! ...

All countries will be deeply affected ... USA included ... but USA has a triple advantage over Europe ... (1) the US dollar remains the worldwide business currency, (2) the USA is larger than any single European country, and (3) it can print its own money ...as a result, all countries will be weakened ... but the USA will be in better shape than any European country ...

... as there is no money to be made by the Global Ponzi burst .. mainstream medias don't mention it ... but the warning signs are there in front of your eyes ... written with neon letters on the wall ... open your eyes and you'll see them ... you may not be consulted about the world's affairs ... but there are ways to protect your loved ones and shelter your assets ... let's discuss this in a future post ... ___My take on a collective delusion
