    Greece: Where To From Here?

    Amidst the turmoil, some hard predictions can be made
    by Chris Martenson

    It’s pretty hard keeping up with the rapid-fire developments in Greece. Things change every hour it seems; rumors abound and confusion runs deep.

    At this point, it all depends on what Greece is prepared to accept and what the EU is prepared to offer. So from here, we could see anything from a full financial pardon from the EU (very unlikely) to a full Greek exit (still quite possible).

    ALERT: Markets Are Highly Unstable, China Is Crashing

    Our first alert in over a year
    by Chris Martenson

    The multiple global bubbles in search of a pin may have found one in Greece.  The carnage there is clearly accelerating, and the central planners are straining mightily to get control back.

    While the odds favor them doing so, the risk is very high that they may not and that we are now in the 'descent' phase that follows the inevitable ending of the 'virtuous' phase (if we can call it that) of the money-printing experiment.

    Two years since his last interview with us, investor Jim Rogers returns and notes that the risks he warned of last time have only gotten worse. In this week's podcast, Jim shares his rational for predicting:

    • a pending major financial market collapse
    • gold's return as the preferred safe haven investment
    • more oil price weakness, followed by a trend reversal
    • Russia's rebound
    • a China bubble reckoning
    • agriculture's long-term value

    Our ‘Truman Show’ Markets

    Little more than scripted fiction at this point
    by Chris Martenson

    The financial “markets” of the US, Europe and Japan have become Truman Show creations. Markets is in quotes to denote the fact that they are more simulation than reality. In a world where the continuance of the programming depends on the virtual reality bubble being maintained, nothing is left to chance.

    Greece Exposes The Global Economy’s Achilles Heel

    Countries that can't repay their debts -- won't
    by Chris Martenson

    Thursday, February 5, 2015, 8:54 PM

    The new Greek political party, known as Syriza, the Coalition of the Radical Left, has done the unthinkable: they've dared to speak the truth.

    Such honest assessments are not supposed to be uttered in politics, no matter how true they may be. And so, as you can imagine, the machinery of the defenders of the status quo is in quite a lather over the whole affair. And it's doing everything it can to minimize and marginalize the new Greek government.
