@ jischinger – I’d highly recommend reading Bowling Alone. I’m biased, of course. In these times, another great piece of sociological work worth reading and reflecting on is Children of the Great Depression.

Max no one in America wants to touch this story. I post the article on friends pages in America and they delete it. Is Murdoch’s Tea Party that scary?
With Russia’s privitisation move will this send gold higher? Will the Russians take Wall St’s Fiat money that they just printed or are about to with QE2 buy gold and then kick the Americans out?
Who will be the first country to stand up to the Robber Barons?
Great show once again..
“An investor has accused J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. and HSBC Holdings Inc. of manipulating the price of silver futures, according to news reports Thursday.
Two separate lawsuits filed in federal court in Manhattan Wednesday allege that the two banks manipulated silver futures by “amassing enormous short positions,” according to a report from Dow Jones Newswires.
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission has been investigating allegations of price manipulation in the silver market since 2008.”

Record-low mortgage rates will be gone in 2011: MBA – Average rates on 30-year fixed-rate mortgage expected to jump above 5% http://www.marketwatch.com/story/record-low-mortgage-rates-will-be-gone-in-2011-2010-10-26
Very poor showing IMO.
How can people still listen to these politicians , who are oratory experts and nothing more.
@Youri … “Record-low mortgage rates will be gone in”
Wasn’t a recent report on the FED’s QE just saying that Interest Rates of MINUS 7% would be their preferred target ?
This is only possible if we have plastic money only.
Japan seriously considered doing exactly that – banning cash.
It´s so funny, from an oil countries perspective the last 30 the US has been running a ponzi scheme..
Corporate structure breaking up?
“Conducted by LexisNexis, the survey of 1,700 people identified dejection and frustration as prominent emotions among 49 per cent of respondents, who admitted they’re unable to manage all the information coming their way. Of those, 51 per cent said they’re close to giving up.”

LEVY FORECASTS RECESSION
Levy doesn’t use the typical economic models, which might be why he was one of the few who accurately predicted the housing bubble and the 2008 recession. Instead, he focuses on flows of funds through the economy, especially the flows that lead to profits, which play a central role in business cycles.
Levy argues that deleveraging by consumers, banks, businesses, and state and local governments continues to hobble the economy. Balance sheets remain bloated by historic standards, which means the private sector will be saving more and spending less, probably for years to come. Federal government deficits made up for those private-sector savings, but only for a while.
Corporate profits were also bolstered by cost-cutting, especially by firing workers and cutting back the hours of the survivors. But in the aggregate, such tactics can’t be sustained, because reduced compensation across the whole economy ends up depressing corporate revenue. After all, consumer demand is dependent mostly on what consumers earn on the job.
Businesses aren’t investing, not because they don’t have the capital, but because they don’t see the demand coming back soon.

Max, have you and Stacy received your embassy invites for Thanksgiving cocktails and dinner? Just wondering if you’re attending? 🙂
In our technocracy those with broadband caps or slow networks or dial up are potentially cut from the loop of insights you share as the higher spec codecs require more time to digest/download. Please keep 240 as an option vs 360 480 720 etc, we may miss the shine of Stacy’s eyes but her assessments will still be received gratefully.
Hey mother what about the Hurley yacht? Nothing wrong with a Hurley, or were you refering to the sailing boat of Laura Dekker? She is sailng now a jeaneau. I am sailing a Hallberg Rassy: definitly preferable above the other two.
Thanks, I just put my ‘yacht’ on land for the winter. I made the Hurley remark as a lame word pun on the verb ‘to hurl’..Those Hallberg Rassy boats look very pleasant, that would be a next step up for me..

Yep, I’ve read that too that -7% rates needed to get the FED target of 1.5%-2% inflation. But that’s the rate to banks. We’re talking about the 30 year mortgage rates here which already have gone up.

As part of officials’ pledge to reinvest cash from maturing mortgage-backed securities and housing agency debt back into the bond market to support the economic recovery.

Hello, somebody inquired how I would define wealth in the “information age”. Well it seems a headline on this site claims people are going crazy over the massive amounts of information they are expected to digest. It seems we are in an age of information inflation, it’s a horrible infla-mation, maybe media herpes or something
. Just like the value of fiat currency in a currency inflation, trending towards worthless, the value of this fiat information trends toward zero.
The information which is being generated is nothing more than derivatives of the true value of the data underlying it. When an internet user claims he has the world of information at his fingertips, this world is virtual, a toxic derivative of the real world. The info we received about global warming turned out to be a toxic derivative of the actual data about temperatures. The data about home prices showed unsustainable y/y gains, the information derived was “home prices never go down”.
When presented access to all the info generated across the world, someone only has resources (time,money) to actually digest a miniscule tidbit of it, this limitation forces someone to only invest those scarce resources toward the info they deem worthy.
People do not invest much time in information not supportive of their thinking, so having a world of information is worthless.
I believe there can be a wealth of data, but information as presented today by all forms of media is just tranched out toxic derivatives of the underlying facts. Max invests in a particular tranche and resells parts of it, JHK invests in a similar tranche and resells parts of it , Alex Jones in a riskier tranche.
Max’s French demonstration coverage is a perfect example, I think data would bear out that most of the French people see the riots as a useless pain in the derriere, but the Max derivative of the facts is they are heroically defying the fascism of an age 62 retirement. He says Americans are cowards for not rioting. The French have no firearm rights so the police there realize they can let riots happen and only material damage results, rioting in the US means armed conflict and it will not start until the populace sees the need for bloodshed, anytime before that point means martial law and even worse outcomes.
The book-reading Stacy Herbert…I need one of those!
