Ty’s Corner

Al’s Insights – Thu 28 Aug, 2014

To put this in perspective, let me ask everyone a question : Have any of you watched an ice jam or a log jam break up? Well, I have; both kinds, in fact. It’s a fascinating process. If you have watched either or both break up, you know what I’m talking about. For what seems “forever” nothing appears happening. Then, one tiny log or one tiny piece of ice breaks loose. Then…. for what seems another eternity, nothing. Then, another piece. Another eternity. Then… oh my gosh!… two logs or two pieces of i ... view article.

The Doctor Is In – Thu 28 Aug, 2014

Pete, I believe based on multiple TA factors I watch that we have a little more work to the downside on the PMs. Right now, the technicals are not indicating a major move down but largely a sideways to gradual move down. I figure the earliest this slide would be over would be by the end of September. The dollar might run a little more during this time. The conventional markets are now at a technical neutral signal. They could go either way right now. My preference would be a topping out at this level with a little more higher level. Having sai ... view article.

A Rate Raising Race: Fed vs. Bank of England

By Patrick Foot, financial markets writer at IG. The economic news cycle in the UK and USA, it seems, has been stuck on a loop for a while now. At least once a fortnight, speculation grows that the latest release from either the Bank of England or the Federal Reserve – be it meeting minutes,… ***This is a preview.

It Begins: Council On Foreign Relations Proposes That “Central Banks Should Hand Consumers Cash Directly”

Ty's note:  As Tyler puts it; the canary in them coal mine. As I have written many times in the past a currency and financial system extinction event is unfolding. Money printed out of thin air is the only solution the keynesian can conceive. For over 100 years it has been the solution to their moral and fiscal bankruptcy. What is a dollar worth? Nothing as we shall soon learn.   Submitted by Tyler Durden on 08/26/2014 22:02 -0400   ... A broad-based tax cut, for example, accommodated by a program of open-market purchases to ... view article.

Cronyism vs. the Constitution

Ty's note, professor Meltzer neatly defines the constitutional crisis currently underway and rampant throughout the District of Corruption aka as Washington DC. What he outlines is a long time cancer on our country and economy. It is why recovery is outlawed by DC, in favor of lobbyists and crony capitalists. Those laws and regulations are NEVER repealed or REFORMED, and are permanent fixtures in our lives in a CUMULATIVE MANNER. The Obama administration has taken this practice to a fine art form and we will all suffer for it FOREVER... Congre ... view article.

Jack Lew’s Next Conquest

Ty's note, this is how politics is played in Illinois. IT IS THE CHICAGO WAY. Take things that are not yours and make them so. The very idea that the know nothing socialists in the Obama administration should be guiding the life insurance industry in a political manner is very dangerous and absurd. How much rent can these looters extract from the insurance industry to stop this harm and call off the UNACCOUNTABLE regulatory predators? We shall see...   Now Treasury wants to make a big life insurer too big to fail.   Updated Aug. ... view article.

Incentives Up to $325K in China’s Housing Market; Shopping on Taobao, China’s “eBay-Like” Portal

Developers in China are offering up to $325,000 in incentives to home buyers. The catch? Incentives come in the form of a credit on Alibaba’s Taobao, an e-commerce platform similar to eBay. More modest discounts, some of them retroactive, are offered by other developers to combat sinking purchase volumes.

Monks and Martyrs: A Controversial Perspective on Dissent in 21st Century America

Two months ago, I highlighted a powerful video from Warren Pollock in the post: Video of the Day – The Religion of Consumerism. Today, I am highlighting another one of his videos. While this one is no less interesting, it’s likely to be quite a bit more controversial. He poses questions that philosophers have no doubt pondered from the very first moment human beings came together to organize into centralized political structures. Namely, what is the responsibility of a citizen in a society in ... view article.

Ebola Among Health Workers: More Than 240 Sick, More Than 120 Dead

If hundreds of doctors and nurses are becoming infected with Ebola, what chance is the general public going to have?  This is not just a question that many of us are asking.  As you will see below, this is a question that the World Health Organization is asking.  When dozens of health workers started getting Ebola, nobody could explain how it was happening.  More precautions were taken and health workers were even more careful than before.  Then the number of sick health workers rose to 170.  Even more measures w ... view article.
