“Belief That European QE Will Work Is Far-Fetched,” Bill White Warns This Will “End Very Badly”

As the title of Hinde Capital's latest note ascribes, we are on "The Road to Nowhere," and this excellent discussion with former BIS Economic Adviser (and teller-of-the-truth) William White explains it all.. "I'm not sure [European QE] is going to do anything - certainly, nothing that's good. The fundamental problem here, as I see it anyway, is that the European banking system is still broken... [...]

6 Major Flaws in the Fed’s Economic Model – James Rickards

The U.S. dollar is the dominant global reserve currency. All markets, including stocks, bonds, commodities, and foreign exchange are affected by the value of the dollar. The value of the dollar, in effect, its “price” is determined by interest rates. When the Federal Reserve manipulates interest rates, it is manipulating, and therefore distorting, every market in the world. The Fed may have [...]

The United States, Weimar Germany And What The Fed Is Really Up To

Today one of the greats in the business spoke with King World News about the United States, Weimar Germany and what the Fed is really up to. He also included two fantastic illustrations that all KWN readers around the world must see. James Turk: "Each week the world’s financial picture goes further and further into la-la land, Eric. In short, things are getting crazier. An example is the[...]

The American Financial Disaster is a Mystery Only to Economists and other Financial “Experts”

I think I should accept that I will never in my life cease to be amazed at the capacity of the human being to spin a story to his/her own preferences, rather than take it simply for what it is. Your run of the mill journalist is even better at this than the average person – which may be why (s)he became a journalist in the first place -, and financial journalists are by far the best spinners[...]

After The Fed Crushed The Middle Class, It Is Targeting The American Family

On a number of occasions this month we’ve drawn attention to the divergent fates of the 80% of American workers whose wages are declining and whose general outlook is concomitantly deteriorating, and the other 20%, whose pay is increasing and who generally feel good about their economic future. We also pointed out that with the correlation between wages and consumer spending now nearly perfect[...]

France, Germany, Italy to Join China-Led $50bn Infrastructure Bank

France, Germany and Italy have confirmed they’ll join China’s new Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB). Participation in the rival to the US-led World Bank is seen as a setback for the Obama administration. The three European countries on Tuesday confirmed in a statement they intend “to become founding members of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank,” according to[...]

ECB Prepares For Grexit, Anticipates 95% Loss On Greek Debt

Dear Greek readers: the writing is now on the wall, and it is in very clear 48-point, double bold, and underlined font: when the ECB "leaks" that it is modelling a Grexit, something Draghi lied about over and over in 2012 and directly in our face too, take it seriously, because it is time to start planning about what happens on "the day after." And incidentally to all those curious what the fair[...]

Central Bankers Move To Protect Themselves Ahead Of Historic Global Crash! – Richard Russell

As people continue to digest breaking news out of Greece and Ukraine, today the Godfather of newsletter writers, 90-year-old Richard Russell, warned central bankers are now moving to protect themselves ahead of a historic global crash. Richard Russell: "Everybody and his brother are talking about when the Fed may raise rates, but few are talking about why the Fed may raise rates. But Richard[...]

Investors Still Aren’t Fully Awake to this Dollar Nightmare Yet – MarketWatch

By Shawn Langlois We are back on “patient” watch this week, with the Fed’s potential market-rattling precursor to a rate hike due midweek. Our call of the day predicts that, for now, “patient” will remain in the script and the Fed won’t be rocking the boat on interest rates (more on that below). Market behavior says: “I’m not so sure.” Volatility has been on the rise, and[...]
