Fed’s Yellen Says Rate Hikes—But Not Too Many—Are Coming

By Greg Robb WASHINGTON (MarketWatch)—Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen on Friday channeled her inner Mary Poppins, giving markets a spoonful of sugar while delivering the message that an increase in interest rates is coming soon. “I expect that conditions may warrant an increase in the federal funds rate target sometime this year,” Yellen told a conference sponsored by the San[...]

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.

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.

THE REAL REASON THE AMERICAN DREAM IS UNRAVELING

Marketwatch posted an article this week titled Why the American Dream is Unraveling, in 4 charts.

This has been the[...]

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[...]

10 Charts Which Show We Are Much Worse Off Than Just Before The Last Economic Crisis

If you believe that ignorance is bliss, you might not want to read this article. I am going to dispel the notion that there has been any sort of “economic recovery”, and I am going to show that we are much worse off than we were just prior to the last economic crisis. If you go back to 2007, people were feeling really good about things. Houses were being flipped like crazy, the stock market [...]

As people continue to digest information relating to the Fed meeting, today the Godfather of newsletter writers, 90-year-old Richard Russell, discussed "The Age of Money" and the Federal Reserve's secret plan. Richard Russell: "I read with interest Vanity Fair’s letter to its readers. The editor asked if we could put a name and age to the world we live in. He suggested we call it "The Age of [...]
