The News About Fake News Is Fake
In the last few days I was looking around for stories that could illustrate what fake news actually is, and I had a nice collection, but then last night Robert Mueller of all people clarified what exactly fake news is better than I could have.
The Fed Is The Ugly Truth
This Fed thing just keeps going on, and it needs to stop.
2019: Zombie Markets Before The Fall
What murdered functioning markets is intervention by central banks, in alleged attempts to save those same markets.
Gold Yuan Crypto
Over the last year or two, there’s been a discussion about the U.S. Federal spending moving beyond $4 trillion dollars, and whether a $1+ trillion dollar annual deficit on top of a $20 Trillion national debt – Federal only – is sustainable. It isn’t.
Gross Incompetence
Here’s the lowdown: the EU’s single market mechanism dictates freedom of movement for labor, capital, services, and goods. These are not divisible; you cannot have one without the other. Still, that’s precisely what Theresa May, again, is proposing.
Facebook: Six Degrees Of Giant Squid
All of a sudden, politicians in the EU, UK, and USA all want to talk to Mark Zuckerberg. That’s a bad enough sign all by itself.

Orwell may not have foreseen the blessings and trappings of social media, but he did foresee how governments and their media sympathizers would react to them: with more disinformation.

Bitcoin Doesn’t Exist – Part 4
You don’t only buy stocks, you sell them. And you can sell them by borrowing them from a shareholder. But what if there’s no record of delivery?
Bitcoin Doesn’t Exist – Part 3
The money, the unaccountable, uninhibited release of tokens can do more than just buy centuries of hard labor in seconds, it‘s also a method of control. Banks, our present issuers of money, can approve or destroy businesses by denying loans.
Bitcoin Doesn’t Exist - Part 2
An exchange is a central point where owners post collateral and thereby join and trade on the exchange. A Bitcoin exchange is the same thing.
Bitcoin Doesn’t Exist
Inequality is our society’s middle name, but maybe that is precisely the problem. Maybe bitcoin should have come with an inbuilt way to spread wealth, not just shift it around.
Brexit Is Pandora’s Gift To Britain
Getting rid of Brussels is at least as much of a relief as it is a headache. Moreover, Britain needed a makeover, badly, as has ironically been shown especially after the referendum.
Austerity, Bloodletting And Incompetence
The UK chancellor presented his Budget yesterday and declared five more years of austerity for Britain.
Preparing For EU Collapse
If there is one thing the Spain vs Catalonia conflict reminds us of, it has got to be Turkey. And that is a much bigger problem for the EU than it realizes.
