We discuss the lunatics and mass murderers the citizens of a decaying empire inevitably choose to lead us not down the road to Rome, but to a volatile priced barrel of oil and a bad self-eating Apple. In the second half, Max continues his interview with Brenda Kelly, head analyst at London Capital Group, about oil prices, negative interest rates and the tapped out consumer unable to take advantage of either. They also discuss currency wars.
We get the popcorn and the potato chips out to discuss the symbolism of negative interest rates, yield curves and intraday oil price swings. In the second half, Max interviews Brenda Kelly, head analyst at London Capital Group, about negative interest rates, US durable goods orders and fraud booms.
We discuss sweethearts, strippers and 666 as Valentine’s Day comes early for the devils at the UK’s tax office.

In the second half, Max interviews Kerry-Anne Mendoza of TheCanary.co about Osborne’s Britain, where austerity-induced suicides are up double digit percentages and the taxpayer is losing billions on stealthly but massive privatizations of state assets.
Coming to you from Moscow, we discuss whether or not the price is right for a ruble? A big mac? A salmon? A barrel of oil? A Deutsche Bank? A Clinton? In the second half, Max interviews Vladimir Rojanovsky, head of research at OK Broker Investment Company, about the ruble’s tumble and what that means for the Russian economy going forward.
We are joined by Ben Aris of BNE.eu to discuss the latest from the Russian economy as it confronts a falling ruble, trade wars and self-imposed sanctions. We look on the bright side of these sanctions which has seen a renaissance in the Russian food scene and they examine accusations from a leading British commentator that Russia can never develop a Google . . . uh, despite having a Yandex, the biggest tech company in Europe. We also look at asset stripping banks in Russia to buy property in London and the reserve fund being used for precisely what it was accumulated to do.
We discuss that there is no story that is not true and what is good among one group of people is often an abomination with others.

we discuss whiny ragequitting in order to join a banking system with life-or-death power but where no real auditing is possible. In the second half, Max interviews investor Stephen Kendal and his terrifying derivatives model which shows the debt bubble growing larger and larger before each of the last two financial crises, whilst the markets stay the same size.
