Articles about finance, world economy etc.

I took out an email subscription (free) to Tedbits. This one came in this morning:

http://www.alternativeinvestingfacts.com/tedbits/tedbits-2010OutlookPt2.pdf

An overview of how the entire system is terminally dysfunctional and a call to get out of paper assets etc.

Referencing Johnson's 'The Quiet Coup' (ex IMF man). If I find some similar articles by Matt Taibbibi (?) I'll post these too.

The Quiet Coup - The Atlantic (May 2009)

+++++++++++++++

Generally, I am concerned that what is unfolding now is the 'take-down' of the current financial system. France was brought to its knees by an engineered revolution in the late 1700's. Russia in the early 20th century. The British Empire in the mid-20th as part of cobbling Germany - the most powerful country in Europe in terms of intellectual and industrial creativity - and Japan (ditto in Asia).

I think now it is the US's turn. Shakedown time. Dubai as well, although at this point it's no longer about nation states per se, nor even individual nexi of power/influence, rather the entire inter-linked system. It will be brought down and something new and more centralised mounted in its place, one that will essentially undermine any local (i.e. national) conventions involving individual sovereignty (basis of Common Law and suchlike), let alone regional (State/Provincial) sovereignty, let alone national sovereignty. Global laws, global taxation, global wage-earning (aka 'slaves') class. Looks like it's coming soon.

Just hope my trading is good enough to get enough profits before they turn off the markets for the little guy (if they do; hopefully they won't because they are an easy source of income for the big boys with their highly sophisticated, market-moving capabilities).

Of old the skilled first made themselves invincible to await the enemy's vincibility.
Invincibility lies in oneself. Vincibility lies in the enemy.
Thus the skilled can make themselves invincible.
They cannot cause the enemy's vincibility.
Thus it is said: 'Victory can be known; it cannot be made.'

From the chap who wrote the HistoricalVolatilityAny indy post by Gold.. recently here at futures.io (formerly BMT), a very interesting article penned recently on his blog.

About China, world economy, a major shift in the works which surprisingly could lead to (gasp!) rise in US$, rise in US manufacturing etc. etc. but in the meanwhile during this huge shift as China moves from predatory manufacturing/RMB devaluation policies, increased volatility in the markets.

Is that what we are seeing this week? Gold selling off big-time as Chinese overnight buying stopped a couple of weeks ago. Is this the US via Morgan adding in yet more shorts to the billions already spent that way in December 09? I lack data on that, and although that is possible, suspect that China is the one helping things go lower in order to raise the value of their US$ holdings so that they can begin to use them for purchasing X,Y Z in intermediate term which is a value-added way of reducing their FX reserves whilst getting something for them. Meanwhile, they shift their LT policies to enhance Chinese spending power domestically and consumer-wise, essentially putting them in the same place the US was during much of the post-war period.

Food for thought.
And good news for the US if true.
And if a big war isn't manufactured by some for whatever reasons. Chances are - if history is any guide - it will be.
