  1. Hi, mods, please feel free to delete if I get an answer, but I simply cannot find the $40Bn per month appearing in any Fed plots from "FRED" (Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis) September 13th 2012: Fed Undertakes QE3 With $40 Billion Monthly MBS Purchases http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-09-13/fed-plans-to-buy-40-billion-in-mortgage-securities-each-month.html So, for instance, these plots show no steady increase by $40Bn/month that I can see, but maybe it's too early?....

Grateful for any hints....
  2. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-19925013 So, WHO OWNS IT? If it's the big banks, then I yell CARTEL. I have thought for a while that Flanders has been 'got to'.. she is somehow on the inside. For her to come out with this is quite interesting. Also, I believe the FEDERAL RESERVE is no more federal than Federal Express; Bill Still's "Money Masters" has the FR in the Business White Pages.
  3. choice quotes: 0.40: Forget high taxes, let's just take EVERY PENNY of their profit.... 4.02: "Micheal Moore assured us that there's plenty of money out there, and it's all tied up in the rich" -- Did anyone hear Justin on R4 this morning at 0750? He was indicating much the same.. my memory of his segment included him saying "How much money is there out there?" - and the answer was something like "More than the national debt", so "We can pay off the national debt if we wanted".... 4.05: liberal billionaires: warren buffet and Bill gates: Tough luck. $100Bn. They accidentally take a tumble down the stairs..we get $50Bn through inheritance tax... 4.40: Kill all the billionaires.. and take all their money. And take everything from the next 100 "almost billionaires". That gets us 73 days. This video looks only at the DEFICIT --- how the US would fund its OVERSPEND. NOT PAYING BACK ANY EXISTING DEBT, but how to avoid adding to that debt. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JY8LKII_MNA
  4. More council-funded disasters....and another bad loan on the (publically owned) Lloyds' books. http://www.bbc.co.uk...t-fife-18775984
  5. Massive mega drop in COnMEX silver inventory at the CME.... will they default this time? To whomever is withdrawing silver from the exchange. PLEASE KEEP IT UP! IT IS WORKING http://www.24hgold.c...fcodecom=SILVER And in other news...... http://www.bloomberg...test-trade.html
  6. A small, but significant event in a planned and intentional inflationary process.... http://www.usatoday....enny/53911656/1 Edit to add, I didn't realise New Zealand, Australia, the Netherlands, Norway, Finland, Sweden and others have gone 'penniless' - really? no euro-cent in NED?
  7. http://www.zerohedge...-dexias-example It's coming...... (the Zulauf scenario, that is)..
  8. Background: M1 is about $2Tr. (physical currency part of bank reserves + the amount in demand accounts (e.g. "current" accounts)) M2 is about $10Tr. (M1 + most savings accounts,retail money market accounts, and small denomination time deposits) M3 is about $15Tr. but no-one knows for sure as the Fed stopped publishing it. (M2+Large time deposits >$100000, institutional Money Market, Repos) I noticed this yesterday: It's the M1 Money stock (Non Seasonally Adjusted) from the St Louis Fed.... My additions in red, original image from http://research.stlo...ies/M1NS?cid=25 But look at the rate of increase; it's phenomenal! Even by shadowstats' standards the M1 Rate of increase has broken out into new territory! So, by increasing M1 as M3 falls, they can kick the can down the road. I think this is what Mike Maloney showed us they were doing. Also, M1 Money velocity is still very low on an historical basis.. Comments?
  9. (anyone fancy a punt!?) German banks (and Barclays, RBS) will suffer for all the CDS they wrote on greek debt. http://www.bloomberg...ker=GGGB1YR:IND
  10. Start at 6m33s, if you are impatient. 8m20s: there is no way our banking system will handle it. Next time, Governments cannot come in again because those governments are perceived as bust. At that time, the Central banks will come in and the balance sheets of the CBs will expand, not by a factor of 2-3 but by a factor of 50 or 100. http://kingworldnews.com/kingworldnews/Broadcast/Entries/2010/5/28_Felix_Zulauf_files/Felix%20Zulauf%205%3A28%3A2010.mp3
  11. Phenomenal FSN with George Karahalios. This guy sounds young, but really seems to understand "where we're at". Essentially, the summary is: we are all parked in PMs waiting for the reset in order to apply our capital. In the mean time, plan to be taxed and have the goalposts moved on you (pensions, consumables, paper value, socialism/capitalism ethos) Jim Puplava's Big Picture: Macro Conspiracies and Micro Realities Jim and George Karahalios discuss government influence in all aspects of the markets, not just the silver market http://www.netcastdaily.com/broadcast/fsn2011-0709-2.mp3
  12. Hi everyone, I had been watching this site called the "Billion Prices Project", run by MIT. It used to give data by country of how prices were changing. It also seemed to actually LEAD the official CPI figures (brought out by the authorities), as this pic shows: Note the arrows on the red line... These are important turning points identified by the Billion Prices Project, which seem to have been followed by the official CPI. Well, today we get this: And now it says the site is unavailable due to maintenance... Coincidence?
  13. Apparently , EUR 10Bn of the latest bailout will come from the Pensions Reserve Fund, NPRF. (Donal Donovan was the source for that; ex-IMF banker). WHEN WILL WE WAKE UP? I mean stealing from the pension fund is only one step away from just taking the money right out of your pocket. Bondholders - i.e. the people who took speculative risk on the healthiness of the banks to pay back their debt - they are fine. No haircuts. Pensions- ROB THEM. People paying for banks to be bailed. Shameful. We really are all slaves. http://noir.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=newsarchive&sid=aH9laIsfLciQ
  14. Printy printy?? from http://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/categories/32215 Reserve balances going up vertically again too.
  15. Interesting that the Shadowstats figure (blue) is now rising, and diverging from the official U6 and U3 figures. I think I heard on CNBC that this is now the longest period of official unemployment over 9% in history (can that be true?!) and also that 15m Americans are now unemployed, with 6m of those unemployed for over 6 months. Ben's gonna have to do something.... http://www.shadowstats.com/alternate_data/unemployment-charts
