Never Let a Good Crisis Go to Waste

Untitled_20150526-000211_1.png“Never let a good Crisis go to waste when it’s an opportunity to do things you had never considered or you didn't think were possible.” – Rahm Emanuel, Chicago Mayor, former Congressman and the Obama Administration Chief of Staff If Rahm is willing to admit such things in public, how much of a stretch is it that he would not try to prevent a looming crisis, or even willfully cause one, if it allowed the opportunity to implement policies he has always believed in, but thought were impossible.  Mr. Emanuel is not unique in his thoughts surrounding crisis, he was just the...

Recent Trends Toward the E Dollar

Recent Trends Toward the E Dollar
    This post is a quick overview of the E-Dollar with some updates from when I wrote my first post that are making my prediction that it could be implemented more and more likely. I stumbled across the E-Dollar in the following Business Insider article: http://www.businessinsider.com/electronic-currency-2013-11 The article is interesting, and frightening, but please skim over it to understand the rest of the post.  Reading this article was an epiphanic moment for me, not in the sense that I thought that the E Dollar was the proper solution to our monetary ills, but that it was the perfect solution for...

Financial Repression Can't Work This Time

Financial Repression after WW2Financial Repression is defined by Lexicon.com as measures sometimes used by governments to boost their coffers and/or reduce debt. These measures include the deliberate attempt to hold down interest rates to below inflation, representing a tax on savers and a transfer of benefits from lenders to borrowers.   Obviously this is an insidious way of reducing a nations debt load and is simply a shift in the debt load from the public to private sector.  Like the use of military force its use should certainly be done with great discretion if at all.    The use of military force often uses...

I Bought What?!

I Bought What?!
There are several nations that charge investors for the privilege of loaning money to them. Denmark yields are negative past a year, German yields are negative out to the 5 year bond, Switzerland bond yields are negative past 7 years, and even Austria sports negative yields on short term debt. Now why would any investment entity allow a borrower to take their money, tie it up for several years eliminating the ability to use it, finally ending up with less than they started? Any rational investor would keep the cash and maintain the flexibility to use it if an opportunity...

Debt Taken On By Fools

Debt Taken On By Fools
NEVER A ZERO SUM GAME   It is often touted that total debt carried by a government or total debt in general does not matter because debt is one person’s liability and another's asset thus a zero sum game.  This is plugged most loudly by Paul Krugman in an attempt to explain why the enormous debts of nations such as the United States and Japan do not matter.  Nothing could be further from the truth.    For example consider a productive farmer and an adjacent town full of people.  The townspeople accept the farmers’ food but do not repay the...
