Today's Fed is taking a page out of Islamic Finance, zero percent interest rates is an idea who's time has come. Except for our erstwhile born again student loan debtor. Seems he discovered religion too late. He borrowed before he became devout and now if he doesn't pay back his loans, he's not going to enter paradise when he dies, too bad. 

Did you hear about how Wisconsin was breaking down people's doors on a political witch hunt, all in the name of opposing Scott Brown's anti-public union agenda? Well it actually happened to a number of people in the Badger State. 

California the once Golden State is falling to pieces. There's a complete failure of leadership and the middle class is becoming an endangered species. Sad but true. What can be done, probably not much as the productive people flee the state in droves for places like Texas and Florida.

Allen Kors looked around at the student loan debt bubble and was appalled. He decided to do something about it and started It's an online marketplace where borrowers can choose from a multitude of lenders to refinance their student loan debt among others. The proof of the pudding is in the tasting and the concept is really starting to take off. Allen expects over 50 lenders to be participating shortly.

We connectec with Peter Grandich today after a long hiatus. Peter is pessimistic about the future. The problems are not being addressed and the debt keeps mounting. Individual investors are chasing yield and will wind up getting burned as usual. American dominance, both economic and military is fading and this bodes ill for the world and for Americans. You need to be prepared so you aren't caught flatfooted.

Economic data plunges, no one cares

-all-time low European yields, more than half of global government bonds below 1%, Eurobor now negative, 10 year bund nearly negative

-aside from oil, copper, and few others, commodities plunging - lumber, iron ore, even rice

-dollar near highs again, killing U.S. business


All out bubble in China/Hong Kong/Japan, all Central bank caused

Danielle Park joined us today for a discussion of the numerous alarming trends that continue unabated. The Greek Tragedy of yes, we have no bananas is rapidly approaching its final act. The debt supercycle keeps on keeping on, until it can no longer. Government in California goes into hyper-absurdity as they go into water rationing while they waste half their water attempting to save an already near extinct fish. When will the madness end? Simple, when markets are allowed to function.

John writes, "In a fiat currency system, perception is, by definition, everything. Paper money has no intrinsic value. So the people saving it and accepting it in exchange aren’t expressing faith in the money itself but in the competence and honesty — and power — of the institutions managing it. Let that faith erode and those slips of colored paper and ephemeral computer bits revert to their intrinsic value.

And on the credibility front, the trends aren’t encouraging. Consider the coverage of this weekend’s Washington DC meetings of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank, two global financial institutions that the US dominates."

The Revel Casino sold for little more than 3 cents on the dollar in a recent bankruptcy auction. The now vacant Showboat Casino could return as a satellite campus for Stockton University. The Caesars Retail Pier is being reinvented as a major music venue. Other things are also happening, but is it enough to turn around Atlantic City, home of the hit show Boardwalk Empire?

Here’s one for the “seriously, you’re surprised?” file: China pegs its currency, the yuan, to the dollar, the dollar soars, taking the yuan with it…and fewer foreigners buy suddenly-much-more-expensive Chinese products. Duh.


China’s Export Engine Loses Steam, Adding to Growth Pressure


China’s exports "unexpectedly" slumped last month, eroding the outlook for one of the economy’s better performing areas in recent months.

Overseas shipments fell 14.6 percent in March from a year earlier in yuan value, the customs administration said in Beijing on Monday. That compared with the median estimate for an 8.2 percent rise in a Bloomberg News survey of analysts. Imports slid 12.3 percent, leaving a trade surplus of 18.16 billion yuan ($3 billion).


The export declines come as China grapples with overcapacity and a property slump. The country’s central bank has relaxed rules on home purchasing, cut interest rates twice and reduced the ratio of reserves banks are required to set aside in the past six months, with economists forecasting further stimulus.


“Consumption is weak, investment is decelerating, and now exports have come in as weaker-than-expected,” said Liu Xuezhi, an economist with Bank of Communications Co. in Shanghai. “Downward pressure on economic growth is increasing, making it more urgent for the government to start rolling out more pro-growth policies.” All thanks to the Dollar-peg according to John and FSN and you know what's going to happen next, broken Dollar-peg and more QE.

Eric Peters believes that the government will soon be using technology to limit your speed. Is it possible? Through GPS and 4G LTE it is not only possible, but the automakers will allow it to happen. Ford is at the cutting edge now. So the next time your speedometer hits 80 on the freeway, enjoy the ride, because you may be driving on borrowed time.

There's a major worldwide paradigm shift coming. If you're busy numbing yourself with distractions and not preparing yourself, then you're in a world of trouble. Chris believes that your salvation is to invest in yourself. That means you need to learn new skills and to improve your existing skills. That way you'll be able to earn multiple income streams and perhaps even be able to move to another country. The key is that you'll be dynamic and flexible in the new economy. You'll no longer be a sitting duck and you'll be ready for what's going to happen next.

The world of Washington is revolving circle of false promises and misconceptions. There are fewer leaders every term that stand up for the people.


The people deserve leaders who will be direct with where they stand on issues and what they plan to do. After that, the leaders must be accountable to their promises.  We need to hold these officers to the notion of being direct, honest and accountable to the people for their promises.” Isn’t it time for a change?


Alexander Meluskey is running for the United Sates Senate in Arizona because as a citizen legislator, he is gravely concerned with the lack of direction, lack of principles and lack of citizen representation in the halls of government.

The stats just keep getting stranger and, if you’re a policymaker or an investor, scarier. According to a (now widely publicized) McKinsey & Co study, instead of deleveraging after the debt-induced crisis of 2008-2009, the world borrowed another $57 trillion. And virtually everyone has been expanding their money supply aggressively. 


Conventional economic theory says that double-digit growth in debt and money creation should produce a boom, and that today our biggest problem should be too many people getting big raises at work. Yet that’s hasn't been the case at all.

Craig Hemke a/k/a Turd Ferguson joined us today. Amazing how funny things happen to PM prices at the end of the month/quarter. But it appears for now at least that gold and silver have reached bottoms and there's just very little downside here. And as Europe and the Euro heat up and Greece gets ready to exit and the war clouds continue to darken, the rest of the world is stocking up, which leaves the West exactly where? Well that remains yet to be seen, but as long as the powers that be can keep prices where they want them and the stock market keeps going up then all is well, right?

The more crazy the world gets, the wiser Bix Weir gets. His Road-to-Roota theory may have seemed absurd a few years ago, but it's seeming more and more likely as we approach the final crash. Now you can read all about it in his new book Silver, Gold, Bitcoin…and God! Just when you thought things couldn't get any crazier, you've got Alan Greenspan going around singing the praises for gold and the Bernanke opening a Twitter Account. Next thing you know Obama will start playing the Silver Futures Market! But seriously, the book is great and it's quite humorous too. You owe to yourself to purchase a copy.

John writes that as healthcare costs are rising, personal income isn't. Many other costs such as car insurance, homeowners insurance, college tuition, etc., keep rising. So while the wealth effect of rising asset prices keeps the rich feeling richer, the reverse wealth effect keeps the rest of us feeling poorer. Eventually something has got to give. What it will be is the question. Will we wind up like Greece?
