  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
  16. I will be making a cash withdrawal on the 7th, but this guy has a better idea: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akF1jXant7g
  17. After several obvious cases between 1m00 and 2m00. From about 4m50 onwards, he explains the way it's done. Disgusting.
  18. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/sep/30/ecuador-chaos-police-rafael-correa President Rafael Correa pelted with tear gas as police angry at new law that cuts their benefits launch chaotic rebellion. ... I think I recall that Thatcher was told to pay the police and army well in order to execute cuts. It remains to be seen what will happen in the UK now, I suppose. However, getting the police to work free for 18 months and cutting defence spending doesn't seem like ideal self-preservation planning by the Govt!
  19. Moody's (finally) gets it... http://noir.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=ao.R8gvuhl2I&pos=2 Spain's Credit Rating Cut One Level to Aa1 by Moody's (Update1) Share Business ExchangeTwitterFacebook| Email | Print | A A A By Emma Ross-Thomas Sept. 30 (Bloomberg) -- Spain had its top credit rating cut one level by Moody's Investors Service, which cited the nation's "weak" economic outlook. The ratings company lowered Spain to Aa1 from Aaa with a stable outlook, it said today in a statement. Spain lost its top grade at Fitch Ratings in May and at Standard & Poor's in January 2009.
  20. This abomination of an organisation has been taking on the alternative media of late; at the behest of Reuters and other large institutions. Many alternative media websites have received lawsuits in the last few days; but they claim 'fair use' - reproducing *part* of anothers' content for discussion has to be fair, IMO. Anyway, some Thai hackers used 'just 20,000' machines to take down www.attributor.com see it now if you dare! http://www.attributor.com/ Go humanity!
  21. If you have ever contributed to USS or are drawing a pension then read this! I think it could cause mass industrial action if it goes through. Point "G)" is particularly insidious, because in the USS, people often work for a few years after doing a PhD., then leave to another career or another country. Those benefits were inflation protected to some degree by being linked to RPI. This has changed to CPI but crucially now is capped at 2.5%. The difference between (fudged) CPI and 2.5% compounded (over, say 30 years) during a period of even modest inflation could rob you ENTIRELY of inflation protection; you will retire with a worthless pot. http://www.uss.co.uk/news/Pages/StatementfromUSS.aspx I have always said to myself that pensions will be worthless by the time I retire, but now I see the mechanism they intend to make it worthless by. I guess this means I need more inflation protection. :angry:
  22. hmm Frank: Interests:Ignoring idiot goldbugsidiots that would most likely have helped you over the last few years?
  23. yep. watched it about a year (EDIT: 6m) ago. The guy's definitely one hell of a chain smoker. I thought the film ended quite sadly and it upset me a bit, but life's like that, ain't it? I believe quite a lot of his story could be true. The pieces all fit together, for sure. ONE OF MY FAVOURITE QUOTES OF ALL TIME from the film: "if you are in a camp and a bear attacks, you don't have to be faster than the bear, you only have to be faster than the slowest camper!" see here for comments: http://www.greenener...8281&hl=ruppert http://www.greenener...ndpost&p=150737 and other stuff: - including comments on the BP spill and a book he published this year.. http://www.greenener...9018&hl=ruppert http://www.greenener...ndpost&p=153609 Here is a link to a link to a talk given by Rupert: http://www.greenener...ndpost&p=141385
  24. Gold will never be entirely unobtainable: I found some a couple of weeks ago (ok, it's not a lot and I had to work bl**dy hard for it... but it's not unobtainable!)
