    Great show Stacy!

    I could hug you for posting it!

  2. Heinrich Moltke says:

    Watch how “Vinny B” shoots down the dual domestic/foreign currency idea as too imaginative. This shows you just how equipped the Irish are to combat their problems. Far easier for them (I’m sorry to say) to get maudlin, spit off some clever quips, and drink themselves into sorrow. Sign of a spent people.

    BTW: Ice-cold Guinness is bullshit.

  3. F. Beard says:

    BTW, if Ireland decides to reintroduce the Punt it should make it the ONLY acceptable money for taxes. That would effectively back it.

    Steve Keen is King. Very good to see him slapping the MSM around with his ideas.

    Weekly U.S. crude stockpiles up 4 million barrels

    Oil edges up, shakes off post-Fed weakness

    Demand for oil and other energy products continued to be weak, a tad lower on the week and down 3.2% on the year.

    Long term, Citi analysts said market sentiment toward crude and the wider petroleum market is “robustly bullish.”

    “Our base case assumptions for the second half of the year include both stronger seasonal demand and lower [Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries] production,” they said.

    “This would be consistent with either a scenario where Iranian production declines moderately, or one where Iranian production stabilizes but other OPEC production is reduced to help limit a drop in price on an easing of tensions,” Citi said.

    Very interesting interview with Steve Keen concerning national financial sovereignty. Why not make the Euro a bench mark, and member countries could re-issue currencies; Italian lira, Spanish peseta, Irish ???, etc.

    RTS Ruble Version Being Weighed, Bourse Chief Aganbegyan Says

    A ruble version of the dollar- denominated Russian Trading System Index (RTSI$) may be created , according to Micex-RTS President Ruben Aganbegyan.

    The exchange, which was formed out of the merger of the ruble-denominated Micex and the RTS in December, is considering whether investors in the index want the option of hedging currency exposure in rubles , Aganbegyan said at a press breakfast in London yesterday.

    “What we hear from a lot of international participants is that basically they wouldn’t mind if the market is traded in local currency ,” Aganbegyan said.

    That means that the index should also be in local currency and investors should choose their own options in FX.”

    Up until the mid 90,s an average single income would have bought a house in Australia. When people could no longer provide housing for their families, I warned anyone who would listen that instead of borrowing excessively. They should join with like minded people to demand an end to the manipulation and exploitation of the housing market, and other markets. I tried to explain that the housing market was being manipulated, because prices should have been falling with purchasing power falling, and more efficient construction techniques being employed.
    Being in a union, standing up to the man, auguring for sanity, is very stressful. It was obviously easier to borrow money to survive and gamble on the markets.
    The average Joe has been played for a sucker. It was too easy, stroke their ego, provide easy dept, tell em they are smart enough to play the markets, you are guaranteed to become very rich.
    Humongous hand outs to connected corporations and individuals from the public purse, while public assets are stripped.
    Personal freedoms have been stolen, the ability to organise resistance has been lost, the brain washing is effective to the point they will turn on each other before the real enemy.
    Enjoy the ride.

    It realy doesn’t matter. Notin would change with neither candidate: Sarkozy/Hollande, Obama/Romney and so on and so forth.

    The nicumpoops will proceed in their zombie state. Simply a human condition in cognitive dissonance in other words – They can’t handle the truth and it freaks them out.

    So, kick back and enjoy the show. Watch the walls come tumbling down – Jericho

    Doh! It’s a kleptocracy.

    Steve Keen, Michael Hudson and W.K. Black my three favorite economists.
    I sure wish that we could see them on TV shows in Casino Gulag Disnazi Land (Flopot) but that aint gonna happen.

    Steve Keen makes perfect sense. They can have a Customs Union (EC) but EMU is a “sucide pact”. They can have european cooperation but they don’t need to have monetary union. It will be a big hassle to revert back to the sovereign currency, but well worth the effort.

    Keen is also (like Hudson) wise to differentiate between different types of debt and the “financialization” of the economy. Huge amounts of money not lent for productive capital investment but money lent for asset price speculation. This is the root of the Ponzi scheme -like nature of the CasinoGulag.
    This is a recipe for socio/economic decay and collapse, which is happening in front of our eyes.

    Japan Seen Anteing Up on Stimulus as Yen Impact Fades: Economy

    Japan’s central bank is set to ante up on stimulus measures as a rebound in the yen shows that the impact of a 10 trillion yen ($123 billion) expansion in asset purchases in February is fading.

    I remember the vid with Max, it was great. Vinny B, doesn’t get it.
    Steve Keen said the truth, and had some solutions. Though, in the long term, there are no solutions, but rather, the industrial age is coming to a close. Fact!

  35. Jayme says:

    Keen makes a lot of sense in fixing the existing system. He thinks very much like a good engineer and should be part of any panel for restructuring some of these economic problems.

    Unfortunately, fixing the system doesn’t address the crooks. Once things start getting better, people will forget about pushing hard to remove the corruption from power. Maybe this is the way it has to be but it sure doesn’t seem right when looking at the damage done in their wake. The system needs to be replaced and the neo-classicists quarantined so they don’t spread their economics of disease further. Keen’s proposed some good ideas to keep the wheels of the economy on the road.

    I may be mistaken, but I don’t think he’s really considered the environment in any of his work, though he does appear to express concern.

    What a brilliant idea. If they bring back the Punt and say it is equal to the Euro, then they could pay back the debt with the help of a few fast printing machines.

  37. CarlosMurphy says:

    Vin B is great a criticizing the government and mainstream parties, but the minute he hears how these economic problems can be solved he ridicules them. He is what you call “controlled opposition” in Ireland. He is there to laugh and ridicule any credible and alternative view.

    Well done Steve Keen and Max. Keep up the good fight.

  38. Capt. Ray says:

    Can’t understand why Keen started to sugest an idea fresh from internet…

    How about this Keen;
    Ireland converts all their (cash) euros to bitcoins and silver.

    Ireland (me think) voted against the euro.
    It can not be a surprize that they go rogue on it.

    Max’s answer is less like that of a paper bug. Me like better. Makes more sence.

  39. Capt. Ray says:

    I mean;
    The guy presenting that show I saw in an interview with some Euro-nazi.
    He (the guy) was asking what a taxi driver would think about paying back loans that, etc etc.

    I like Max’s phraze better: “What part of un-secured do you not understand?”. Says it all a lot shorter.
    Plus that leads directly to question; Who can secure loans in name of my son who is 4 and owes around two million and a halve… from the get-go.
