[KR1015] Keiser Report: Consumer Confidence

We discuss consumer confidence for young people collapsing and Max Keiser’s dancing. We also discuss the fact that Americans are now more in debt than at the beginning of the financial crisis, according to the NY Federal Reserve and US Census data. What does this mean for 2017? In the second half, Max interviews Constantin Gurdgiev of macroview.eu to discuss the root of the 2007-1010 financial crisis being back with a vengeance and what Trump should do in response to the next inevitable credit collapse.

    You know how inquisitive and open-ended AIs can be, must be. What about parrots and macaws? Then what? Dogs, cats, hamsters, lizards, snakes? Mice? Let’s not forget the caged monkeys in all those labs. Or the labs next to whale and dolphin aquariums. Or squid tanks? Uh-oh! And then, there’s the really disturbing hypotheses… naaah! Would never happen! Ôo

    How Bad Will The “Bond Massacre” Get?
    https://srsroccoreport.com/how-bad-will-the-bond-massacre-get/
    January 7, 2017

    Worse “than the 1994 ‘Bond Massacre,’” with “sustained double-digit losses on bonds, subpar growth in developed markets, and balance sheet risks for banking systems….”

    The backdrop: after 36 years of bond bull market, the amount of US bonds has ballooned to $47 trillion, up 24% from just ten years ago:

    • US Treasurys ($19.8 trillion),
    • Municipal bonds ($3.8 trillion)
    • Mortgage related bonds ($8.9 trillion)
    • Corporate bonds ($8.6 trillion)
    • Federal Agency bonds ($2 trillion)
    • Money Markets ($2.6 trillion)
    • Asset backed Securities ($1.3 trillion)

    Bonds dwarfs the US stock market capitalization ($27 trillion). Bonds are a global phenomenon with even bigger bubbles elsewhere, particularly in NIRP countries, such as those in Europe, and in Japan. That’s why bonds matter. They’re enormous. And the damage they can do to investors is huge…

    Did Constantin Gurdgiev mention healthy R&D and education as being necessary to a competitive real economy? Nanotechnology and space-age materials and design. As opposed to waning and wasteful technologies. Or is turning the USA into a disjointed collection of http://www.historyofcuba.com/history/havana/Sugar1b.htm“>near baseline extractive monocultures states being included in the ‘cloud’ of alternatives? Like a <a href="United Puerto Rico States Of Amerika roost?

    Hey fwiw I just noticed that every heading for every article has practically every word capitalised. Pretty Much Like This. What gives? Is it supposed to give more credence to the article?

    A massive shift in consciousness…

    Elvis finally leaves the stage, dragging the sorry assed, invention of ‘country’ as exclusionary money farm …. and all that monetized bling with.

    Feel free to make the distinction ….Symbiotic, top predator, physical reality relationship, is far different than decreed, top monetary predator … a systemic entanglement.

    ‘…The project aimed to cause a soft coup using initiatives like creating a new twitter-like platform to foster dissatisfaction with the government and NGO financing and training for artists, students and professors to create a pseudo-left opposition party. Fernández said similar strategies were applied in Venezuela, Iran and Libya and continue to be implemented in many other countries around the developing world. He said a key soft coup strategy is to weaken a government’s pillars until it implodes to cause chaos. “With the country in chaos,” he said, “it is possible to resort to more extreme methods.” …

    …backing out of plans to participate in fake news reports about “chaos in Cuba” that were supposed to be spread through the major corporate media outlets in 2006…’

    Free Trade does not rhyme with the Babylonian Slave system.
    Just to be clear; trading slaves is not free, is it?

    Online Free Trade is a whole different issue.
    Tax Free trade?
    International Free Trade will it ever be?

    However the myth gets promoted.

    Are Social Media’s “Ads For Eyeballs” Valuations About To Be Eviscerated? http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-01-08/are-social-medias-ads-eyeballs-valuations-about-be-eviscerated

    Key is to get inside a persons head i.c. Evan Williams to fully understand the decisions he made. Williams is not some newbie hungry for advertising dollars. He’s seen that done that also taking into account his impressive resume. So it has nothing to do with the ‘ads for eyeballs’ model in general but more what it leads too if you let it run amok. The same as if you let a large group of people decide what to eat every day this unavoidable will lead to eating hamburgers and fries every day. And that’s exactly what Evan Williams doesn’t like: “The current system causes increasing amounts of misinformation…and pressure to put out more content more cheaply—depth, originality, or quality be damned. It’s unsustainable and unsatisfying for producers and consumers alike…. We need a new model.” (Strange that this essential quote from Evan Willams is not in the piece above?)

    An other article on the subject from Daniel Roberts on Yahoo Finance*** makes this point clear: “There may be a sweet spot for putting ads against original content, but Medium wasn’t finding it. Case in point: the site is rife with “blog posts” written by non-journalists that are actually thinly veiled plugs for a product or app, but aren’t marked as ads or sponsored content.

    With all of its many pivots, it became less clear over time what exactly Medium is for. The site has smart, longform essays on film and cinema, emotional personal stories that go viral, but also corporate blog posts (here’s a bizarre one from Slack to Microsoft when Microsoft launched a Slack competitor), promotional posts shilling new apps, and marketing tips from social media “experts” plugging their own achievements. What is Medium’s brand identity? Everything, and thus, nothing.

    It is a Wild West of content.”

    What Evan Williams wants is:“… defining a new model for writers and creators to be rewarded, based on the value they’re creating for people. And toward building a transformational product for curious humans who want to get smarter about the world every day.

    It is too soon to say exactly what this will look like. This strategy is more focused but also less proven. It will require time to get it right, as well as some different skills.”

    Because Evan Williams needs time to develop this he made these radical decisions, for the casual observer, but if you follow his thinking more carefully it makes sense.
