Small business owners who employ local workers and provide value to the community are NOT the 1%! The IMF is the 1%.
1. The IRS is not a U.S. Government Agency. It is an Agency of the IMF.
2. The IMF is an Agency of the UN.
3. The U.S. Has not had a Treasury since 1921.
4. The U.S. Treasury is now the IMF.

6. The United States does not have any employees.
7. Social Security Numbers are issued by the UN through the IMF.
8. There are no Judicial courts in America and there has not been since 1789. Judges do not enforce Statutes and Codes. Executive Administrators enforce Statutes and Codes.

GUESS WHO AND WHAT OWNS YOU AND THE UNITED NATIONS ?
As a matter of fact the imagined President, imagined Representatives, imagined Senators, imagined Supreme Court Justices and imagined Federal Judges are not paid by the United States Government. Actually the United States Government does not have any employees They are paid by the International Monetary Fund in electrons. You see there is no such thing as the United States Government. In reality there are no Governments. There are Corporations (Fictions) such as the Federal Reserve Inc., and the United States Inc., which in fact are private corporations. The United States Inc., is just a slave management company. Guess what that makes you? If you said property, you are correct! You are Human Capital. The shares that were issued for the Federal Reserve when it was created back in 1913 only cost $100.00. That was quite the bargain.

I haven’t been very social lately. We’ve had the playoffs….the playoffs….ummmm…..the NBA Playoffs… Go CELTICS!!
Oh and we’ve been selling a TON of houses!!
Silver has been falling. “Sell in May, and go away.” So they say anyways, we’ll see. It’s an election year and we know that Central banks are trying to prop up the dollar as long as possible. We’ll see if we see QE3 after the election and a skyrocket in silver pricing tho.. The USD (US Dollar) is higher than it has been in over a year at over 82.
Facebook has gone public!
Many people think that when there is a stock IPO(Initial Public Offering) that it’s the first time people can buy stock. That’s not actually quite accurate.
It IS the first time the general public can buy the stock. But before the general public can invest, accredited investors get their shot first, and at a much lower price! To be an accredit investor, you have to meet certain criteria that the SEC sets out. Basically this means that the wealthy get an advantage with investing..No surprise!
Facebook stock opened up near $40, and it is now below $30.
Facebook shares dropped 10% today at a drop of over $3.
Many people are saying the IPO for Facebook was overvalued. Those who claim this might talk about how Google has 10x the cash flow of Facebook and 10x the strength on their balance sheet. What Facebook has now over Google is social usage. Google is working on that, but they got in late.
But here’s the thing: When a stock goes public, it is meant to benefit the company!! They make money by selling shares.
Facebook is smart and finds a way to do smart things. Zuckerberg is simply not your average CEO. There is something different to Facebook. It has swag. Facebook continues to adapt and integrate with other platforms. This is why I was wrong 2 years ago when I said Facebook was on the verge of falling to other platforms like wordpress and blogger.(right before my parents got on Facebook!) hah!
Will I invest in Facebook? I dunno…
With real estate, I can control my investment.
If Facebook keeps dropping, I can come up with a lot of fundamental analysis to support getting in. But I just don’t know…
What I can tell you I definately will buy more of if it keeps falling, is silver. I promise you I’ll pick up on that. I forecast QE3 after an election and more devestation to the European Union shooting the price of silver up.
If you want to follow Facebook as a company daily, and you commit yourself to a solid education in stocks, you can make money in Facebook. This way, you can make money whether Facebook stock goes up, goes down, or goes sideways.
But whether it’s Facebook stocks or any other investment, do your homework and don’t trust the BROKErs.

The Financial Times has been running a series this month entitled Capitalism In Crisis. When reading this story, it is apparent just how far we are from fixing this global economic crisis. As Richard Duncan points out in his latest post titled This is not a Crisis of Capitalism, “(it’s) not because of the insights contained in the articles, but because the entire premise of the series is completely wrong. This is not a crisis of Capitalism.”
Capitalism is an economic and political system in which a country’s trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit. More specifically, Capitalism is where the private sector drives production by accumulating capital and investing back into the system. With true Capitalism, the government’s role is very small.
The truth is that the United States has not been Capitalistic for decades. Our federal government spends 25% of the money in our economy and the central bank AKA “The Fed” creates the money out of thin air and manipulates it’s value. Thus, our economy is no longer driven by capital accumulation and investment like before. So if it’s not capital accumulation and investment that are driving the economy, what is it you ask? The answer is DEBT.
Credit creation and consumption(using stuff) have now become the dominant forces driving economic growth. Thus, we no longer live in a Capitalistic economy.
Capitalism was a phenomenon of the 19th century, one that did not survive past the 1st World War. WWI destroyed the standard upon which Capitalism was built. This standard was the gold standard, and once it was gone, central banks and governments gained near-total control over economic production.
The ENORMOUS expansion of government debt that was used to fund WWI created a credit bubble that we know refer to as “the Roaring Twenties.” This bubble of the Roaring Twenties soon popped and became the Great Depression of the 1930s once the debt was too big to repay.
WW2 was no different, with again complete government control over the economy. In the coming decades after, government spending surged on social programs and military expansion. By the 1960s, the government was using Keynesian tools to control monetary policy and the rate of economic growth. In 1971, President Nixon removed the dollar from the gold standard, which meant that dollars were no longer backed by gold. This gave way to a HUGE explosion of a fiat currency supply(money backed by nothing but the faith the people have in their government’s currency). This expansion in the money supply transformed our world and gave way to the biggest economic boom in human history.
In 1964, the total of all credit in the United States hit $1 Trillion. By 2010, the credit supply had expanded 50 times to $50 Trillion(Source: Richard Duncan). This new found money, or credit, created enormous wealth, profits, jobs, and tax revenues, and ultimately brought on a new age of a global economy. As long as credit keeps expanding, prosperity increases. Credit has replaced Capital as the key driver of the economy.
The economic crisis of 2008 had nothing to do with Capitalism. The crisis of 2008 and that we are still facing today stems from issues with credit creation. Because for what caused the biggest boom(or bubble) in human history, is a debt that must be repaid(unlike Capital). The debt that was taken on which drove the expansion of the last 40 years cannot be repaid, hence the crisis. Even more disturbing, is that now a large percentage of the population is now not credit worthy. This makes further credit expansion nearly impossible. And under this credit-ran economy we now live under, when the credit doesn’t expand, the growth slows, until eventually, the music stops altogether.
This 40 year period of credit expansion birthed a new era in the global economy. The United States has been de-industrialized as a result of being able to buy products from low wage countries on credit. As Industry got smaller in the US, the Finance sector became the dominant sector of the US economy. But the music has slowed down dramatically in the Finance sector as well, now that Americans can’t bear any additional debt. Now that we are weak in industry and in way too much debt, it is a growing problem for the United States to be able to act as the driver of the global economy.
But it’s not just the US who’s economy is no longer capable of working successfully. It’s also the economies of all the countries, such as China, that have seen growth as a result of strong manufacturing and export. This is another global imbalance yet to correct.
Truth is, at least to a large extent, the government now manages our nation’s economy. The US’ demand is still the most important factor to economic growth to the global economy. The world NEEDS us to buy their stuff! But without credit, we can’t!
Now, the actions of other governments and government-related institutions(IE: the European Union) must be carefully monitored. Point in case, the news 2 months ago by the European Central Bank(Europe’s Fed) that they would lend Euros($630 billion worth) to European banks for up to 3 years at low interest rates, is the reason that global stock markets have been gaining over the past 6 weeks. The stock market is also at a high since the 2008 crisis, following news from the Federal Reserve that they would keep interest rates at near zero level through 2014.
Global markets have came back sharply not because of the success of the intervention from the Central Banks itself, but because investors are realizing that more government-directed interventions will come when necessary to prevent future crises.
It is flat out sad that the global economy depends on government intervention. This topic leads to a very controversial political subject regarding smaller or bigger government. Once side argues for bigger government to avert the crisis and the other wants small government with less regulation to get us out of the mess. The reality is, unless we can come together to find a true solution to our monetary problem, both sides will get slaughtered as the biggest bubble in human history pops and credit stops, wiping out the America middle class and taking the benefits with it that we have seen as a by-product of our global economic status.
Don’t get me wrong, market forces still have an important impact in the economy. My point is that now, more often than not, it is government or central bank’s action that has so much influence on market forces that it becomes a very grey area as to where the government influence stops and the market influence itself begins. Supply and Demand still play the key role in setting value. It’s just that today, governments have an enormous role in influencing both. It is imperative that we recognize this, and understand that this is not Capitalism. We must no longer worry about fixing the crisis with Capitalism but instead shift our attention to the crisis in the current economic system that exists in this global economy, a system of debt. The only question we should be asking is this, “Do we try to fix the current debt system, or do we need a better system? Do we need to abolish the current system and go back to the former phenomenon that was a true Capitalistic economy?” I woud say this, either way, one must understand what is going on in the global economy if he(or she) wants to join the rich, as opposed to be forced into the poor, as the middle class is wiped out.

Last week the World seemed to take a break from worrying about Europe and focused their attention back to the United States and the meeting of the Federal Reserve AKA the Fed. The proof? The Euro rised big against the Dollar.
Ironically, the United States’ problems far surpass the debt problems of the European Union. The difference? We have a Central Bank that can print our currency out of nothing!
The Fed introduced an “Inflation Target,” which they set at 2%. This is something that has never been done before! Last year’s inflation numbers were closer to 3.5-4%, but given that the outlook for coming months is to drop significantly, expectations point to a drop under 2%, at which time would be a perfect scenario for the Fed to come out and unveil a 3rd round of quantitative easing AKA QE3.
The Fed also said they will keep short term rates(“over-night rates”) at all time lows through 2014. The Federal Reserve has never stated a policy that would last 3 years! What’s more crazy, is that debt is the only product the Central Bank sells. Can you imagine if a large company came out and said, “We are going to sell our one and only product at all time lows for the next 3 years.”? I am thinking we’d question whether they could survive another 3 years. The same should be true for the Fed, but I doubt it will. People are still so blinded by the illusion that they actually produce something..
The monetary policy by the Fed to keep rates low KILLS savers. This included anyone who has money in checking, savings, any type of deposit account, IRA, 401k, mutual funds, pensions, etc. If you have your money in one of these places, don’t expect a return for…YEARS.
So where do you see the economy going in the next few years? Well, if the statement by the Fed is any indication, I would say a strong recovery is not on the horizon.
I really don’t see these long term low rates benefiting the masses. I do see it benefiting small business owners who rely on short term loans. I also see it benefiting those who have Adjustable Rate Mortgages AKA “ARMS.” And the group I see being benefiting most by this are those savvy entrepreneurs who will use this cheap money to buy cash flow producing assets.
So what’s the bottom line?
The bottom line is that nothing is free. Money is no exception. There is a “cost for capital.” This means that there is a cost for borrowing money. DUH! The problem is that the cost of capital would be much higher if it weren’t for the Federal Reserve who can set the interest rate anywhere they want. By the Fed placing interest rates under the cost for capital, mal investment is brought into our economy by people who are getting loans for things they shouldn’t. It is because of this that I think the Fed needs to back off and let the market find it’s true equilibrium. This would allow for the smart money to come back into the marketplace. The smart money will stand on the sidelines as long as the Fed holds interest rates low. Investors can’t compete with the Fed when the Fed gets it’s capital by printing it out of thin air! Because the Fed simply “prints” their “capital,” they can hold interest rates at all time lows as long as they need to. Of course this is terrible for the economy as it means we are at their mercy.
If stimulating more debt would help us recover, I think it’s safe to say we’d have recovered by now. The reality is that pushing more debt into the system will not make our problems go away. It won’t slow the foreclosures, it won’t add jobs, and it won’t make life cost less money.
Like any private company, the Federal Reserve exists for one main purpose….PROFIT. The Federal Reserve can’t profit if it doesn’t exits. And it wouldn’t exist if people realized they don’t create anything of real value.
An indebted society is not a healthy one. Look at Greece.. If it weren’t for the US being able to print money, we’d be no better off than them.
