For decades, there was one tried-and-true staple of presidential campaigns: The Democratic nominee would whack the Republican on proposals to reform, cut or privatize Social Security and other entitlements and reap the political rewards.

In the most evocative example of the genre, a 2012 attack ad from a progressive advocacy group showed a character strongly resembling Paul Ryan literally pushing a grandmother in a wheelchair off a cliff.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/other/global-central-bank-gold-purchases-reach-a-record-high-for-the-first-9-months-of-the-year/ar-AA1j8d3j

Central banks have been purchasing record volumes of gold since 2020. More in 2021. More in 2022. More in 2023.

The folks who issue paper currency are going berserk for gold, and it's been largely ignored by the stock markets.

This is overwhelming proof that the gold Market is rigged. But then con only rig it whole the stock market functions.

When the system collapses gold will be king again, and the banksters know it.

Gold is about $100 from the all time high price, and they're purchasing record volumes near the record price level. They know what's coming.

They aren't stupid.

Gold will be the only trusted asset when the fiat system collapses.

The scam to hide the faking home sale prices is called a "mortgage rate buy down".

The home sells for an inflated price, and the inflated price is then spent to reduce the monthly payment price by offsetting the actual interest rate.

It's like paying a higher loan, so you can spend 20% of that loan on the interest payment.

This creates the illusion of elevated prices on home sales, when the effective price has already fallen significantly.

You clearly didn't watch the video. The swedish central bank just went public with bailout request. Both central banks are stuff m structured the same way, they both have the same problems.

The Fed cannot magically make money. They have issue treasury bonds, and someone has to be willing to buy them. If there's no buyer then it's game over.

Central banks have been selling US Treasury bonds, and the Fed has been forced to buy them back. They're broke.

That is why I posted this. They did this to themselves voluntarily.

Now those companies are the laughingstock of the whole internet.

Star Trek turned queer so I cancelled Paramount.

Netflix turns everything queer so I cancelled Netflix.

Turn your product queer and we'll never buy it.

We aren't the only ones that do this. By far.

The fed can't lose money. They're the ones who print it.

Everything You Love You Owe to Capitalism - Llewellyn H. Rockwell Jr. by Drewski in economics

He's referencing the Soviet Union though, not Scandinavia. I don't think he's making the claim that the Scandinavian countries are socialist, or redefining words, at least by my reading. Other than that I agree with your comment.

I like the Mises guys and the Austrian school of economics, but some of this isn't quite right.

That was socialism in name only, I would be told. And yet, if socialism does mean anything at all today, it imagines that there can be some social improvement resulting from the political movement to take capital out of private hands and put it into the hands of the state.

Yes, but that type of 'socialism' that we see in Scandinavian countries is actually still Capitalism. It's fair to argue that it's coercive, or even undesirable, but it isn't accurate to depict this arrangement as not being capitalism. We are still talking about a market economy rather than central planning, we are still talking about the means of production being privately owned.

Simply having taxation and social services doesn't mean you aren't a capitalist economy. By this definition the USA is already not capitalist (and hence I wouldnt owe everything to it since we are socialist) because we have free public school, social security, and medicare. It's hard to take this piece seriously when he is redefining words on the fly depending on his already defined position

UK Power and Gas Bills Are About to Double and Triple by raven9 in economics

Yep, it's all down to how electricity is priced here. It doesn't actually cost more at the moment, the government regs have put the price up.

Fighters and especially shōguns mostly already did, i assume.

You gotta know who and where your friends are.

No matter, what is told by the "elite" mishpoke.

Honestly: Just look at those guys. There ain't questions to be asked anymore when the shade of civility should drop, i suppose.

Values instead of prices will have a kinda big comeback, i believe.

Blackstone just stopped buying houses in dozens of cities. I hope they lose their shirts in the coming housing crash. by iamonlyoneman in economics

[–]JasonCarswell 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

IMO, they're going to drive the housing market down as far as they can then spike it back up again, over and over, as much as they can - and pump all owners of their wealth until few survive the housing musical chairs game.

In the end they'll over-regulate those who remain and punish all non-conformists by drowning them in red tape.

Long live Vampire Blackstone in existential angst to suffer the eternal tortures of the soulless damned.

The sooner my fuckwad landlord of a year-and-a-half is removed the better. I just hope the banksters won't fuck with me too.

I'm not afraid they'll go bankrupt, their numbers are only going to go up-up-up over the long term. I'm just hoping they get some of the pain of the average joe first.

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered." - Thomas Jefferson

And he's right. The rates were low for a long time, but now they've jacked them up very quickly in the last half-year: https://tradingeconomics.com/united-states/repo-rate

Ostensibly they're doing it to counteract the massive inflation caused by all the covid stimulus (and loose money printing prior to that) where some 60% of the total money supply has been created in the last 2 years because of these 0% interest rates for the biggest banks.

But now they're yanking the chain by raising the rates. They're now shifting in to "deflation mode" to try and get inflation back down to only 2% per year, as is their stated goal. But doing this is basically going to crash the economy because they're now making lending money hard to get, mortgages hard to get, etc. So the housing and stock markets and crypto are all probably about to crash, because the easy money is going bye-bye very quickly as they raise central bank repo rates.

Not looking good. Thomas Jefferson fucking called it. This is a huge danger and we are facing it right now worse than ever. But most regular people have no idea, they just see gas and food getting more expensive and the news convinces them it has something to do with russia and war, instead of years of insane lending policies that have created the biggest bubble the world has ever seen. And now central banks (of almost every nation because they all did the same thing) have to choose between runaway inflation, or stopping the inflation that tightens the money supply and will collapses the economy that's basically a giant bubble. Lose-lose.

Buckle up.
