UK: Millions of savers need 6% to beat inflation, 18 January 2011, by Myra Butterworth (The Telegraph) http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/personalfinance/8266502/Millions-of-savers-need-6pc-to-beat-inflation.html
Foreign investment in China hit record $105.7 Billion Last Year http://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/Foreign-investment-China-hits-afp-3936820927.html
Zizek on Aljazeera talking about the end times.
This is off the point(i’m sorry)…but I am a Canadian living in China for 8 years and the last 3 weeks we cannot watch YOUTUBE via VPN. Can you ask RT to put your show on Disclose.tv
I have no other way to contact you or RT; we have been blocked completely now. I teach here at the uni and my students also want to watch you.
I can tell you something about China. Something big is coming BUT the normal citizens don’t know what it is. Inflation is now showing it’s ugly head (13% /mo on household items) and the “new” 100 rmb bills are flooding the every day market. Oh, and off course some of us buy gold and silver and the other “traditional” chinese still invest in the stock exchange or property!
The normal citizens still trust their government and still thinks America is GREAT!
You see Farage at the end of that interview revealing where he is at regards banks and bonuses . In truth he and his party are the far right. He talks about bankers making huge profits and therefore earning huge bonuses but does he acknowledge the fact that the banks are a cartel engaged in vast criminal activity from FRB to liars loans, CDS’s CDO’s, HFT, naked shorting and taking huge positions ala the JP morgue copper play. Organized crime makes huge profits they have ‘fraud as a business model’ where have we heard that before ?
@flicks – yep, I thought the same thing; and, of course, ‘we have to return the banks to profitability’ is being done through interest rate policy wealth transfer and he knows this
@flicks,……Tip: if you hear it on MSM,.. it’s part of an agenda !
Nigel Farage was passionate and interesting and made sense – up until the last minute when he blew it with his utter BULLSHIT that we have to reward top bankers – even successful ones – with such outrageous bonuses, for fear they’ll move elsewhere.
Not if we outlaw them getting outrageous bonuses elsewhere, too.
Then farmers, sales clerks, janitors, sanitation workers, teachers, transit workers should be paid billions of euros / dollars / ounces of gold each year to prevent THEM from moving elsewhere or mass rioting.
Nigal spent his formative years as a trader in the City of London.
@flicks … Farage being nice to bankster
Yes, I saw that when I posted it originally .. didn’t bother to mention it though.
Farage, by saying that, is of course either not understanding what functions banks should have , or he’s expecting the system’s status quo to remain , i.e. no radical reform.
The investment Banksters can pay so much because they are living off ill gotten gains.
If the banking system was a pure utility – which is what it should be IMO – such enormous payments would be impossible.
Yes .. in fact he worked at the Bullion Desk IIRC !
Premiums being payed on physical !
Precious Metals Default Scenarios-Jan-17-2011
Yep, Nigel blew it at the end.
The right is mostly hypocritical. They hate government EXCEPT when it comes to propping up the government backed counterfeiting cartels.
BTW, that’s an attractive RT babe. I can hardly stand to see her American counterparts.
Nigel should shut up
What a hypocrite asshole. First blaming all the people who want to keep a strong united Europe and are ready to help each others and then defending the banksters, especially from London, who started all this mess in the first place. He´s just a British nationalistic bastard who wants to devide Europe, the same old game they try to play for centuries.
good points above from everyone which i agree with, plus I’ve also heard hs views on Iran which are fairly hawkish and makes one suspect he’s a ‘friend of Israel’. Still though his speeches in the European parliament do make for entertaining tele & radio no doubt.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Nigel Farage is justifying banker’s bonuses!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Noooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Noooooooooo!!!…Shame on you Nigel, I’m disappointed with that…where is that gumption you showed in front of the Euro council “president”!!!!!
Nigel – blow it out your ear. What a right-wing tool.
