Sheltered banks do not trust broke American public: Too big to fail securely in place while business inventories surge to record levels.
Tracking consumer spending we find that industries subsidized by easy debt are growing at dramatic levels. These include student debt and auto loans since most Americans simply do not have enough saved up. Many have nothing to their name. The student debt market has grown dramatically this year again largely due to the reality that […]
What is the Federal Reserve’s end goal? Follow the money and you will find no intention of tapering, out of control public debt, and financial steroids for stocks. Fed balance sheet up $55 billion in one week.
The Federal Reserve is known for producing convoluted and purposely hard to decipher messages. The media is driven by what the Federal Reserve says but fails to analyze what is truly happening. The Fed is driving in a car with no brakes. This is clear given that the Fed balance sheet increased by $55 billion […]
Blue pill of debt exchanges temporary increase in debt for inflation: Taking the blue pill of a fabricated world addicted on debt as US standard of living hits 10-month low.
Most of you have seen The Matrix where Neo is given the choice between taking the blue or red pill. The red pill would allow Neo to escape The Matrix and enter reality whereas the blue pill would allow him to stay wandering in the fabricated world of the Matrix. The US government in essence […]

Nothing left to financially lose: Biggest drop in confidence since Lehman Brothers and why some are unmoved by government shutdown.
The government isn’t the only thing that shutdown. Economic confidence in the US has also apparently shutdown as well. Many people, in particular those in the media, seem perplexed as to why and how this can happen. Unfortunately the current financial system has disenfranchised a large number of Americans. Enough to the point that politics […]
Debt serfdom via student loans: A new class of indentured servants now carry the $1.1 trillion student loan bubble and cracks are already plaguing the system.
$1.1 trillion. That is the amount of student debt being carried on the backs of millions of Americans. Student debt has become a rite of passage for many young Americans. In fact, many Americans establish their first credit line with student debt as they enter college. The crisis is large and has a direct connection […]
A road to unsustainable debt: CBO reports that US is on unsustainable budget course as spending exceeds revenues.
A recent CBO report came out with a rather sobering outlook of our governmental spending habits. The word “unsustainable” is probably not something you want uttered in a report about meeting a budget. Yet that has been our recent trajectory when it comes to spending.
