    The Great Triumph of Capitalism

Do you remember when the Soviet fell, nodding wisely about the demonstrated triumph of the Free Market over Communism and a centralised government control?

Oops. It seems as thought we have a cadre of experts who believe that but for them, the free market will fail. At last count there were about 8 men (yes, Men!) who have seen fit to shoulder the burden of steering the market through it’s obvious failings. You guessed. The FED.

Capitalism has become the reverse side of the same coin as Communism, and will have the same result.

Which of cause, is Dmitri Orlovs‘ point.

    Arhur, I wonder what the new

Arhur, I wonder what the new label will look like. We’ll still call it capitalism but growth just can’t be.

I still bleed the Red, White, and Blue though, my bad.

Every Time I catch something, today a head cold and upset stomach I think PANDEMICK!!!! I have to stop reading such things before bed.

    Meltdown, RJE

RJE take care of that headcold.

I Love freedom.  I dont care what colour it is.But what is it? I know it when I see it. It is the confusion that you have when you wake up and realise that you have nothing else to do but amuse yourself. “Whatever turns ya on, Baby.”

We have to leave the Enlightenment behind us for it is Enlightenment thinking that stops us from using both brains. We are losing freedom because of the dominance of the rules-bound Left Hemisphere as is described in this video. 

How will this insanity end? Like most insanity, complete meltdown. It is not going to be pretty. But then a pupa never is. The flutterby that emerges is.

What I hope for on the other side is that there will be no more “Money”. Machines will have become sophisticated enough to do the drugery that we pay others to do for us. Hence we need money. We are making progress. It is my belief that when Quantum Computing hits the streets, we will have true magic.

Without capital there can be no capitalism. With freedom there can be no Communism. To do this painlessly we must expand. To expand we need the space elevator. For the Space Elevator we need to produce an endless carbon nano-tube. The future of humanity hangs by a fine thread.

We wont need 50 tonnes of rules from Congress to tell us how to cross the street. We will use empathy to set the standards. It will be obvious to everyone when the rules are broken.

We must sieze control of our Evolution. Random is not good enough.

We need to escape the pain that drives us to hurt others. We need introspection to identify the source of the discomfort. We must learn contentment. Lazyness and procrastination will become virtues.

Reading and writing will become a lost arcane art.

I am both a doomer and a cornucopian. Like a good joke, it is all in the timing.

Kunsler says that there is too much magic. I say that there is not enough.

Wizards Rule,OK?

    Thanks for this Arthur, I

Thanks for this Arthur, I enjoy very much attempting to understand. I go real simple Arthur, three squares and a bunk for all, and the bully’s have to take a ‘time out’.

Ahmadinejad giving a speech at the UN!? Really? On Yon Kippur?! What!?

Who cares, like we have no idea on the other 364 days what this fool thinks. He’s a bug in search of a windshield (Mauldin), and he has very little time before his irrelevance becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. The world cannot be this mad, can it?

I like colors Arthur because the Black and White has failed miserably. Truthfully now Arthur, the colors have NO OFFICIAL MEANING! It is why I like the colors. Interpret as you wish. So I go with Character, Love, and Family. My colors, my family mantra.

You can add ‘walk softly but carry a BIG ASS stick’ or train a really BIG Rottweiler just in case someone disturbs your soliloquy or has a need to harm your/my Lady. That just can’t be.

Have a great day

Gooooo Tigers

    Inflation and Deflation

Which will it be?  The answer will continue to be ‘yes.’

 

With two different types of money, we can expect two different types of “flation.” 

Things that are purchased with credit will experience deflation as credit is destroyed.  Things like cars, houses, colledge educations, and gold exposure will fall in price.

Things that are purchased with cash will experience inflation as cash is printed.  Things like food, energy, land, and gold bullion.

In a deleveraging, credit is destroyed and cash is created.

    change the rules!!

deflation can happen and it is what SHOULD happen….but it will not happen because all failing assets will be bought with newly printed cash and the bill will be sent to the users of the dollar in the form of inflation and higher taxes. This new cash is the food of hyperinflation. This has always been the plan (among those who understand the life cycle of a fiat currency and it’s interaction with human behavior.)

    Millisecond trade data

You can’t get ALL trade data on a millisecond (300 light metres) time scale even for North America due to the Toronto to New York distance for many dual listings, but I know what you mean and there are many companies selling their “co-location” services.
