    I have a correction to my posting above.
    It appears that Zero Hedge (MISH) already presented a theory which is being supported by recent TIC data.

    Testimony of Chairman Alan Greenspan, The regulation of OTC derivatives
    Before the Committee on Banking and Financial Services, U.S. House of Representatives, July 24, 1998

    Quote: “Nor can private counterparties restrict supplies of gold, another commodity whose derivatives are often traded over-the-counter, where central banks stand ready to lease gold in increasing quantities should the price rise.”

    Hi Max,

    Great GOLD necktie, buddy! Wonderful! Sends the right message (as they say around here).

    You know, I don’t think these people infesting your comments section (maxkeiser.com) even watch the shows anymore. It seems to have become a usenet type group for kooks. Regretable. It means that those of us who wish to commend you on your most excellent programming are forced to clutter up your inbox. So sorry.

    Frankly, sir, I laughed out loud at your wonderful toilet paper remarks to that fellow, Mr. Obama. In fact, your program generally makes me laugh out loud. Superb political comedy in my opinion.

    Also, I much appreciated your positive remarks about Trade Unions. Perfect. The Mish-ian “Libertarian” idea of using this collapse as a convenient occasion to destroy Unionists is beneath contempt. But then, I understand that fellow is a “programmer” not an Economist per se — and of course I mean that term as it used to be used before the Neo-Feudalists completely ruined it.. ie., as an historian of political and economic ideas. I am a programmer myself. I have counted Mr. Thompson and Mr. Ritchie as among my acquaintances and respect them both very, very much. But I believe this infatuation of latter day computerists with the faux-religion known as “Libertarianism” is quite ignorant. They have not followed the tracks back to Synarchy. Alan Greenspan was a Randian. He is one of the fathers of this horror. Milton Friedman was a buddy of that rapist butcher Pinochet.

    Well, I won’t bore you with a long rant. You are a smart fellow, Mr. Keiser. It is one of the great accomplishments of human kind to be able to transmit information in an amusing way. I wish I had that ability.

    “It would be a disgrace if it turned out to be true that banks that already pushed us to the edge of the abyss were also party to falsifying Greek statistics,” said Ms Merkel during a speech in north-eastern Germany.

    Was that a tongue in cheek comment I wonder,,hmm : )

    @Dedo

    Still unbelievable who Goldman Sachs can help hiding debt for a country on an highly dubious way, maybe even illegal way according to EU law and use the same “Inside Info” to profit from it in attacking a country?

    I guess the term illegal legal doesn’t mean anything today. It’s all color of law.

    Feeling Queasy? – Monday 7th September 2009
    Quantitative easing in the US, UK and Eurozone…

    BY END-JULY 2009, sales of new US Treasury bonds had already outstripped full-year sales in calendar 2008.

    Creating money from nowhere, the Fed’s asset-purchase scheme – better known as quantitative easing – bought bonds equal to more than 18% of that 7-month record, effectively financing $224bn of the total $1.2 trillion in new government bonds.

    No, the Fed didn’t simply hand that cash straight to the government. But it funded the national debt via the primary dealers who did buy the bonds…only to sell them onto the Fed…and thus stumped up 32% of the net cash flowing to Treasury from its bond sales (gross issuance minus maturities). Which was handy. Because the sums raised by personal taxation fell by one-fifth in the second quarter compared with April-to-June 2008. Federal spending rose 6.4% regardless. Money from nowhere sure helped.

    @Youri,..Quite the show they’re giving the public, don’t you think!
    We both know the ultimate goal (and so do these guys),.but they’re attempt at entertaining us is laughable.
    I suppose they have to make it obvious to Joe baggo, to get some discontent circulating.
    As long as everyone is singing from the same songbook huh,.: )

    @ max keiser,

    You know, I don’t think these people infesting your comments section (maxkeiser.com) even watch the shows anymore. It seems to have become a usenet type group for kooks. Regretable. It means that those of us who wish to commend you on your most excellent programming are forced to clutter up your inbox. So sorry.

    Yes it’s a shame, but partly the product of the format and the lack of constraints, which might focus comments.

    Interesting comments on US prospects reported by the FT and their Alphaville blog reporting the analysis of Richard Duncan, partner at Blackhorse Asset Management and author of The Dollar Crisis on Tuesday, regarding his new book The Corruption of Capitalism.

    http://ftalphaville.ft.com/blog/2010/02/17/150521/the-us-is-not-a-viable-concern-anymore-duncan/

    …In Duncan’s words, the collapse of Bretton Woods represented the moment “capitalism became corrupted by government debt”.

    …The point being: the world’s largest economy and engine of global economic growth — the United States — is simply not a viable concern any more. As Duncan explained it:

    “The country is de-industrializing because wages in the US are up to 40 times higher than those in developing countries like China. Therefore, the United States makes very little that the rest of the world cannot buy somewhere else much more cheaply.”

    And so, like any troubled company, the US too must restructure itself if it is to remain operational, says Duncan.

    I know this is like shooting myself in the foot but @LN and @harry_w are right with the comment:
    “You know, I don’t think these people infesting your comments section (maxkeiser.com) even watch the shows anymore. It seems to have become a usenet type group for kooks. Regretable.

    There is a balance here, on one side I like all the random links provided by various people BUT I also see that almost all of them do not belong where it is posted. There should be a constant “Birdfeed” section on this site for all link news or something like that to get it away from the comment section.
    I know I have mentioned it before, this site must look quit messy to a newbie popping by wanting to leave or read comment on the latest show or topic for then to discover that only 1in5 comments (if their lucky) covers the theme.
    Now, I enjoy many comments even if they are off topic but as LN writes it is turning to a Usenet type group which is not a positive thing for this site as it is now me thinks, though it could be IF it can be separated away from the comment section unto some other forum.

    It is a bit weird to criticize the very same thing I do but I think about that now and then especially when reading comment sections on other news sites, forums and so on where I read comments because I want to know peoples viewpoint on the subject and if the article has some wrong info people correct it and post links to source or post additional information to support the article and so on…
    In one respect we lack that here. And if it do come up it just drowns among all other chit chat hardly noticed.

    self censorship? no, just need a different placed to put the off-topic information.

  24. Sirial says:

    Self moderation on forums is pretty much the same as self regulation of banks, forget about it.

    If you want a tight and on topic forum, you will have to moderate.

  25. Youri Carma says:

    I think this forum is kinda need and Casper is a little wining baby cause we do react on the show, always. I can call him a name cause he called us one and that was not a flattering one too. He just could have placed his comments her but instead went to the boss wining.

    This forum contains real passionate people who really dig into something and keep topics going. The people here are very forgiving and maybe a bit to real for some.

    @frances snoot

    Gree whit Ya.

    @Sirial

    This doesn’t come near how banks behave in their criminal so-called self regulation. Even the cosa nostra his holy compared withe these shysters cause they kill by the million.

    I just started visiting this site and I can’t get enough. Stacy and Max – you’re awesome.
    I haven’t made my monthly trip to Costco, but when I do I’ll buy two packages of toilet paper – one for the house and one to cover my credit card and mortgage payments.
    Hey I have an idea? Why don’t we dedicate a month where we all send a sheet of toilet paper to these corrupt institutions instead of a cheque? If the banksters can do it, why can’t we?

    Max, just a linguistic thought: instead of kakastocracy, why not coprocracy. It goes well with corpocracy and even with aristocracy.
