Two Separate Worlds and the End of Economic Globalisation

During a very important meeting of the Security Council – not even mentioned in the Western Press – on 28 October, the United States voted against UNO cooperation with regional organisations which include Russia, and therefore also China. By refusing to work with others, and thus to admit that other powers are their equals, Washington has taken the path towards a division of the world into two distinct spheres ...Read full article...

The Link Washington-Wall Street is more Alive than Ever Before

While voters reject further liberalisation via transnational treaties, the Democratic administration, under pressure from large corporations, aims to force the Transpacific Agreement on the fast track. To understand why many voters in the United States -and not only those who support  Trump- believe there is a corrupt nexus of interests between Washington and Wall Street, you should follow the history of the Transpacific Agreement (TPP), the liberalisation treaty led ...Read full article...

Economic Sanctions or the White-Collar War

The United States and the European Union have launched an undeclared war against Syria, Iran and Russia – it is known by the alias «economic sanctions». This appalling tactic killed more than a million Iraqis during the 1990’s, without arousing any suspicion in Western public opinion. It is used today, patiently, against any state which refuses to be dominated by the unipolar world order. In the past, conventional war ...Read full article...

Can Russia Learn From Brazil’s Fate?

William Engdahl recently explained how Washington used the corrupt Brazilian elite, which answers to Washington, to remove the duly elected President of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff, for representing the Brazilian people rather than the interests of Washington. Unable to see through the propaganda of unproven charges, Brazilians acquiesced in the removal of their protector, thereby providing the world another example of the impotence of democracy. Everyone should read Engdahl’s article. ...Read full article...

Is Deutsche Bank Going Under?

Is the collapse of Deutsche Bank the real reason Germans were told to prepare for a national crisis? Many think so. If the most prominent bank in Germany fails, the effect on Europe will be profound, and I don’t think the United States will escape the effects. The ripples will turn into a tsunami as they travel across the Atlantic. Already, the bank’s troubles have stressed the American stock ...Read full article...

Undemocratic IMF asks for Democratic Economic Growth

Among all globalist organizations in the world, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is one that sits at the top of the list as an entity that seeks to protect the interests of multinational corporations; more specifically, banking institutions. This position was not different at the last G-20 meeting in China, an event that came and went as many others have: lots of posing and no solutions to any of ...Read full article...

Why Is the German Government Telling People to Stockpile Food, Water and Cash?

The government of Germany is advising citizens to get prepped with food, water and cash. Increased terror attacks from refugees have put the country on high alert, and a new “Concept for Civil Defense” will be presented on Wednesday. Generally speaking, the more dependent a citizenry is, the easier they are to control. In my book, The Pantry Primer, I wrote about the history of using food as a weapon of ...Read full article...

Obama Pushing for TPP with Misinformation and Big Lies

US trade deals such as TPP are jobs-killing weapons of mass destruction. They destroy fundamental freedoms. They ignore eco-sanity. They’re abominations vital to end. America needs fair, not Orwellian free trade. Preventing TPP’s enactment into US law is crucial for all working-age Americans and their families. Obama intends going on the offensive publicly to get Congress on board for its passage. Last October, he touted it in his weekly ...Read full article...

Hillary’s Economic Plan: Continued New Millennium Disaster

America is mired in protracted Main Street Depression because of a generation of bipartisan governance serving privileged interests at the expense of most others – Republicans and Democrats sharing guilt. No real economic plan is in sight. Neoliberal harshness became official US policy in the 1990s – during the Bill and Hillary co-presidency. Giving them a third term assures more of the same – the horror of deepening poverty, ...Read full article...

How Long Can Economic Reality Be Ignored?

Trump and Hitlery have come out with the obligatory economic plans. Neither them nor their advisors, have any idea about what really needs to be done, but this is of no concern to the media. The presstitutes operate according to “pay and say.” They say what they are paid to say and that is whatever serves the corporations and the government. This means that the presstitutes like Hitlery’s economic ...Read full article...

Russia’s Weakness Is Its Economic Policy

According to various reports, the Russian government is reconsidering the neoliberal policy that has served Russia so badly since the collapse of the Soviet Union. If Russia had adopted an intelligent economic policy, Russia’s economy would be far ahead of where it stands today.  It would have avoided most of the capital flight to the West by relying on self-finance. Washington, however, took advantage of a naive, gullible and ...Read full article...

Another U.S. Phone Jobs Report

As John Williams has made clear, the monthly payroll jobs number consists mainly of an add-on factor of 200,000 jobs. These jobs are a product of the assumption in the Birth-Death Model that new business ventures create more unreported new jobs than the unreported job losses from business failures. If we subtract out this made-up number, July saw a gain of 55,000 jobs, not enough to keep up with ...Read full article...

Are You Planning Your Retirement? You Won’t Survive To Experience It

The Israeli agents who comprise the Neoconservatives, a collection of war criminals that control US foreign policy, have already handed you your death certificate. The neoconservatives have far more power than they have intelligence or humanity. At the recent St. Petersburg International Economic Conference, President Putin excoriated Western Journalists for endlessly repeating Washington’s lies that are driving the world to nuclear war. He asked Washington’s bought-and-paid-for-whores, the scum who ...Read full article...

European Great Depression preceded by Negative Interest Rates

Europe faces a prolonged era of very low or negative real interest rates between 0 and minus 2%. It will last five more years, until 2021, conclude the experts convened by the European Central Bank (ECB) at its annual conference. So credit users will sing glad tidings; savers, curses; and the whole society will intone lamentations, as low interest rates indicate sluggish growth, in which any surprise multiplies the ...Read full article...

Tories Intend Greater Austerity Following Brexit Vote

Political fallout from Thursday’s Brexit vote didn’t take long to unfold. David Cameron began it by announcing his resignation, effective when Torries meet in October, he said. On Tuesday, UK Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne’s greater austerity announcement didn’t surprise. Days before last Thursday’s vote, he claimed Brexit would cause a 30 billion pound public finance hole – public health service, education, transport and other spending cuts needed, ...Read full article...
