[KR873] Keiser Report: Efficacy of Capitalism

We discuss the efficacy of capitalism as profits remain high and with no competition on the horizon to put a dent in those high profit margins. We also discuss hedge funds and bankers unhappy with the “new Spain” where justice is imposed and also at the “folly for the ages” as a major energy company liquidates itself through financialization gone wrong. In the second half, we look at the peer-to-peer lending Ponzi schemes imploding in China and at #icechallengeputin as Max Keiser takes to ice in a video only available on RT Plugin.

    Oh . So it’s alright, then (except for the poor fellow)? Ôo

  5. YoLithos says:

    About those Scud attacks. They were just getting rid of them. They needed the storage space.

  6. YoLithos says:

    About the meteor thing. That’s a lot of collateral for a non-meteor and eerie blue glows all over the place, there.

    @Vonda:

    Thanks for all those links!

    Good news for some, bad news for others.

    Do you feel it is all ‘coordinated’, or is this a genuine flight to safety??

  18. Vonda Bra says:

    @ susan

    “my sources” (that one website from my country, often a bit too strange on other stuff, I mentioned it before ;-) ) have been predicting this to happen more or less the kind of way it is now showing (btw, as many others from our pool of people regularly being posted here too of course) … and yes, of course it is all coordinated! Thats how I sense it.
    BUT, I also sense some “throw a spanner in the works” though.

    So, of course with all the stumbling blocks, amendments and repair work
    to “keep the script in tact” and going. As of now, I still think we are dealing with 2 different powers in a deadly fight! We will not have much of a say in this fight whatsoever (most likely, as long as peeps hang on to the devilish “solutions” and bla bla of politicians that seem to make life more convenient for them and keep on voting for trojan horses, how eloquent or charismatic they may seem ;-) … (but lets see and hope)
    The only thing we can do is try to prepare and see/accept … try not to be fleeced of our working life achievements and savings in terms of FIAT “money” valuation … or the re-valution of it, so to speak …

    But I`m absolutely not sure (how could one of us be?), if it will go on northwards for PM`s from now on? or if there will be another pullback … but at least it seems to be a remarkable “reveille” for all the people to think about, maybe, eventually getting in, or to stack up on G + S within their personal options!

    If you need some cash now (and it of course depends on when you got in!) you might choose to cash-in on a little profit now in G (watch carefully!), or diversify into S …
    If your`re fine and settled .. just lay back and watch the show,
    if there is one? :D … we`ve all become used to roller coaster rides by now ;-)

    One thing`s for sure, if you haven`t decided yet to diversify your fiat into some physical G+S and you wait too long, its very possible there won´t be any for you to buy left!!! Thats a crucial thing to consider.
    So its different and too individual to tell. Its too personal and depends on everyone´s individual circumstances.

    Again, 2 major powers fighting. WHO is WHO ? its possible they aim for the same thing eventually (or think/thought so), but still want some personal gain to take from the win. Maybe some head wind from a 3rd one? that bedevils “the plan” .. ? “the awakening people” ???… we don`t know!

    All I can say is, that obviously we`re getting to some superheated point and that I sense a lot of “nervousness” and hush hush … and that their might be head winds getting into the way? … who will run amok or lose ones nerves first? Its getting tense! .. so much irrational propaganda and deeds from all sides … are “they” losing track? … very dangerous in fact.

    Most of nowadays so called “powerful” in politics are outright wimps! So those will surrender at some point .. and a lot of them, when their backing stops immediately! .. and run for cover.

    Then, their will be a crucial change in energetics .. and a lot will be possible.

    Anyway, Go with your instincts, avoid to be taken in too much, stay in your center, watch it, but stay “untouched”.

    Sorry for the elongated “2cence” of mine … I hope you understand “Vonda-english” ? :D

    Great programme as ever -BUT you suggest that Podemos in Spain are asking for a return to ‘rule of law’. You are supposing that this ever existed in Spain.- it’s becoming blindly obvious that all the main parties which have exercised political power in Spain since Franco died and the so-called ‘transition’, have been committing MASSIVE frauds and covering up for eachother. At last Jordi Pujol, ‘honourable’ ex -president of Cataluña is under investigation as are THOUSANDS of politicians from the so called ‘left’ and right – MILLIONS of euros are in tax havens and what we want ere in Spain and hopefully with the help of Podemos, is true democracy ( democracía real) and transparency. At the moment the right wing ex-president is still clinging onto power although he hasn’t got a majority – probably trying to gain time as memebers of the right wing popular party rush around destroying evidence of graft, ‘mordidas’ and illegal commissions.
