[KR389] Keiser Report: Wealth & Wage Extinction

We discuss the economics of wealth and wage extinction. They talk about hunger wages, household income and the hedge funds reaping huge profits off this wealth and wage extinction. In the second half of the show, Max Keiser talks to Captain Paul Watson on a Sea Shepherd ship in the Southern Ocean in Antarctica fighting the economics of extinction as practised by the Japanese whaling fleet in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary.

As if on cue, Keiser Report ahead of the news once again as we see the economics of extinction breaking in the news as we go to air:

Or, as Sandeep Jaitly puts it, someone traded 1000 ounces of gold for that bluefin tuna. That’s the economics of extinction.

    mean time in REAL news LL lost her ride at CA ……..WTF? so we are just not talking about the fact that RT just axed “captal account”?
    WTF was that all about?
    other than you two it was RT’s only hard financial news and it could NOT have been LL’s ratings so again WTF? ……………could it have been the fact that LL tended to ask enuff real questions, in such a way that colectivisim in all its forms was exposed as the ponzi scheme it is for any who cared to listen?……………where as you two tend to HIDE when things get even close to RT’s restricted subject list, you know the one im referng to the one with “pussy riot” at the top of the list , it goes with that OTHER list the one with the stories like AGW and whale watching as being relevent to economics ……………………. well at least the shilling has secured your incomes, and you two dont have to go looking for new patrons at Yahoo . but just how comfortable is that collar? chafing yet? if not it will eventually ,count on it! you dont deal with the devil that way and get away clean…….

    Here Comes The Student Loan Bailout http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-01-05/here-comes-student-loan-bailout

    The percentage of 90+ day delinquent loans soared from under 9% to 11% in one quarter. The Federal government has now delivered yet another bailout program. Federal Debt will be tacked on to replace discharged student debt loans, up to the total $1 trillion which will promptly soar far higher.

    Typically, federal student loans must be repaid within 10 years. ‘Pay as You Earn’ limits student-loan payments to 10% of “discretionary income” as defined by government formulas. Monthly payments can increase or decrease each year based on the borrower’s income and family size. In some cases, borrowers with low incomes could be required to make a zero-dollar payment and would still be considered current on their loan.

    Borrowers who make regular payments could have the remaining unpaid amounts forgiven after 20 years. Borrowers with public-service jobs may qualify for loan forgiveness after just 10 years.

    Also read:

    The BOJ added 10 trillion yen last month to its 66 trillion-yen program for buying securities, including government debt maturing in three years or less. Yields on the short-term notes have all collapsed to about 0.1 percent amid central-bank buying, which is intended to spur inflationary pressures and growth through low borrowing costs.

    Concern that inflation will diminish the value of fixed payments from bonds is more evident in the rates on longer-term securities. The extra yield investors demand to hold 30-year JGBs over three-year notes rose to 1.9 percentage points on Jan. 4, the most since April 2011.

    “As the BOJ buys more, yields will go lower on short- to medium-term notes,” said Shogo Fujita, chief Japanese bond strategist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, a primary dealer. “The yield curve will steepen as inflation expectations and growth prospects push longer rates higher.”

    It seems that the “respectable” old NY bankers that actually “did do” much good for the Economy in their time – like Schiff, Seligman , Kahn etc. – were decidedly different from Rockefeller and JP Morgan … who were NOT interested in anyone but themselves … divergence happened around ca. 1920s

    “The Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee built such a reactor in the 1960s. It was shelved by the Nixon Administration. The Pentagon needed plutonium residue from uranium to build nuclear bombs. The imperatives of the Cold War prevailed.”

    “Cambridge scientists published a tantalising study in the Annals of Nuclear Energy in February showing that it is possible to “achieve near complete transuranic waste incineration” by throwing the old residue into the reactor with thorium.

    In other words, it can help clean up the mess left by a half a century of nuclear weapons and uranium reactors, instead of transporting it at great cost to be encased in concrete and buried for milennia. It is why some `greens’ such as Baroness Worthington — a former Friends of the Earth activist — are embracing thorium. Though there are other reasons. “

    @Youri Carma – Re: Dubai at the Crossroads of Global Gold
    In my almanac, Israel doesn’t tolerate that kind of thing for long. Even when springtime favors the relative complexion and winsome charms of “stable” regimes. Are they in for the standard “Lebanon Treatment”? When? Or, might some other kind of accident be in the works? An epidemic of Falling Towers? Errant artillery? Nothing quite as gross?

    And, by the way, I’m glad to see that just this week, the US’s capacity to create and inflict artificial tsunamis is oficially no longer a theory. Now, maybe only another decade or so will have to go by, before people underst see that the atmosphere is just another kind of sea – electrically (thus, magnetically) bound between the earth (sea) and the streams of charged “space” above. Lay on, Horatio! 🙂

    It’s my impression that any Arab – or Muslim – state with increasingly sophisticated modern global financial services or institutions, and mass transit of pople, does not really “suit” Israel. Apparently, it never has. Perhaps they can try to tolerate those that exert greater oversight and control. An uncertain proposition, in a land of factions.
