[KR957] Keiser Report: Cryptocurrency Drama

We discuss ‘the Venezuela’ in the capital markets. In the second half they talk to Simon Dixon of BnkToTheFuture.com about the crypto-novela playing out with much drama in the crypto-currency space. In an exclusive, they also unveil the logo for Kim Dotcom’s BitCache.

[KR956] Keiser Report: Why politicians should follow Mozart’s lead?

We ask why politicians don’t take a cue from Mozart and start composing policy for everybody rather than just for the elite. In the second half they continue their conversation with fracking advocate, Nick Grealy of London Local Energy about his belief that natural gas, even of the fracked variety, is a more environmentally friendly source of energy than most others – despite the arguments (he says are false) that fracking pollutes groundwater and causes earthquakes.

[KR955] Keiser Report: To Frack or Not To Frack?

We ask why only ⅓ of the British population supports fracking despite big cash payments allegedly on offer from the government. In the second half, we talk to fracking advocate, Nick Grealy of London Local Energy about his belief that natural gas, even of the fracked variety, is a more environmentally friendly source of energy than most others – despite the arguments (he says are false) that fracking pollutes groundwater and causes earthquakes.

[KR954] Keiser Report: Schrödinger’s Brexit

We ask whether, as Schrödinger’s cat rules monetary and fiscal policy, could a collateralised Embassy Cat bond deliver the asset value the Bank of England needs? And, is the ECB financing M&A activity in the donut sector in order to prepare for the civil unrest they expect when their policies fail? In a real Schrödinger’s cat moment, Stacy appears in the second half, too! We discuss low rates starting to wipe out pension funds and insurance funds and how the absence of capital expenditure (capex) in favour of share buybacks has, in turn, wiped out the real economy – as evidenced in the collapsing productivity numbers out of the United States.

[KR953] Keiser Report: ‘Crexit’ & the dark heart of Italy’s banking crisis

We discuss ‘crexit’ and the dark heart of Italy’s banking crisis as central bank intervention increases financial risk. In the second half Max continues his interview with Francine McKenna of Marketwatch.com about the current trials against the auditors taking place in courts across the United States.

[KR952] Keiser Report: Phantom Pension Funding

We discuss the reckless gamble that Governor John Kasich of Ohio – one of the ‘legitimate’ and ‘respectable’ candidates (as per the media) in the Republican primaries – chose to take with the state’s pension funds. In the second half Max interviews Francine McKenna of Marketwatch.com about what Donald Trump’s tax returns might show. Francine suggests that they would show ‘yuge’ business losses but that ordinary people wouldn’t understand investing for the specific purpose of such losses. They also discuss what the IRS audit of the Clinton Foundation might show and what the transcripts of Hillary’s talks to Goldman Sachs would show.

Nirp Refugees Flooding Into Emerging Markets Aboard Rickety ETFs

We live in the age of the refugee. Climate refugees, Syrian, Libyan, Afghani, Iraqi, Yemeni war refugees and now NIRP refugees are pouring across the world seeking safe haven. Wolf Richter of WolfStreet.com tells Double Down that these investors may soon find that central bankers have forced them into the riskiest of investments — like emerging market bonds — which could sink and take the pension world’s remaining wealth with them. In a negative interest rate world, however, where can Nirp refugees find any safe haven from financial repression?

We discuss the ‘Great Period of Instability’ and the $24 trillion rollover risk as interconnected disasters in the global economy. Max then talks to Reggie Middleton in Bryant Park, NY, about there being no such thing as negative interest rates and how the German taxpayer will go broke before Deutsche Bank does. Max talks to Valentin Schmid of the Epoch Times about the trillions of bad debts in the Chinese banking system and what plans the Peoples Bank of China has for dealing with it.

[KR949] Keiser Report: Economics Farce

We discuss the farcical, upside down world that central bank intervention has made in markets – where the safest bets are now the most dangerous. We also discuss the otherwise undiscussed collateral damage to European countries from sanctions friendly fire. In the second half, Max continues his interview with Gerald Celente of TrendsResearch.com about entrepreneurship and the US elections.

Double Down: Bread, Circuses and… Taco Bowls

Of the citizens of the declining Roman empire, it was said: “Give them bread and circuses and they will never revolt.” So true is this of all such citizens of declining empire that every four years American presidential wannabes even promise revolution but know that the voter will ask only for more bread, circuses and… taco bowls. Dr. Michael Hudson joins Double Down to talk about the economic reality behind the Trump voter and about whether or not, as it is claimed, Hillary Clinton is the ‘most progressive’ candidate in Democratic history.
