Corporations Join Droves Renouncing US Citizenship

31st August 2014

(And now those “droves” are going to be paying an extra 422% to break free by renouncing citizenship, according to Forbes. – Ed.)

(CaseyResearch) - Don’t be surprised to lose if you don’t make an effort at being competitive.

And if you go out of your way to make yourself less competitive, expect to lose.

If that sounds like simple common sense, that’s because it is.

But it’s also exactly what the US has been doing for years—enacting tax policies that sabotage its global economic competitiveness. Read the rest of this entry »

Home-Flipping Collapses In San Francisco, Losses Spread

31st August 2014

(WolfStreet) - Home flippers are hardy folks who dive head-first into housing markets to buy homes at a discount from estimated market value, rehab them if they have to, trim the trees and cut the weeds out front, and flip the unit in less than a year, hopefully at a premium over estimated market value. If all works out, they’re rewarded with fat returns on investment.

It involves leverage, so some of the risks get shuffled off to the lender. It involves skills, connections, knowledge, and a good dose of luck. Above all, it requires the ability to buy low and sell high. To take home some serious dough, flippers need to purchase at double-digit discounts below “estimated market value” (based on AVM) and add enough value to sell at a premium over estimated market value. In the intervening months, home prices must also jump. So double-digit home price increases over the last two years have made flipping a lot more profitable. And easier.

This is the magic mix. If the conditions are met, the equation works out. It not, it’s a leveraged bet that can go to heck in a hand basket. Read the rest of this entry »

Wall Street Admits That A Cyberattack Could Crash Our Banking System At Any Time

29th August 2014

Cyberattack Could Crash Our Banking System

(EconomicCollapseBlog) - Wall Street banks are getting hit by cyberattacks every single minute of every single day.  It is a massive onslaught that is not highly publicized because the bankers do not want to alarm the public.

But as you will see below, one big Wall Street bank is spending 250 million dollars a year just by themselves to combat this growing problem. Read the rest of this entry »

Is America Becoming a Third World Country?

29th August 2014

Is America Becoming a Third World Country?

(TedBaumann) - I often ask myself: “Is America becoming a Third World country?” I’ve traveled all over the world and seen the ins and outs of developed and undeveloped nations, observing economic and political structures that work and many that don’t. And what I too often see in the Third World — it’s that fair and equal treatment under the law often goes amiss. Read the rest of this entry »

Fed Vice Chairman Warns: Your Bank May Seize Your Money to Recapitalize Itself

29th August 2014

Bank May Seize Your Money

(SHTFPlan) - At the height of the financial crisis in 2008 the U.S. government forced some of the countries largest banks to take “bailout” funds amounting to billions of dollars in order to keep them from going bankrupt. It was a move designed to not only keep too-big-to-fail financial institutions afloat, but one that would inspire confidence and keep American consumers spending. As a result, the last several years have seen stock markets reach record highs with Americans continuing to rack up personal debt for real estate, vehicles, education, and consumer goods as if the financial crisis never happened.

Bank of America stole $907 million from taxpayers by falsely certifying loans as compliant with federal law, lawsuit says

27th August 2014

(NaturalNews) - A new lawsuit filed in federal court claims that Bank of America falsely certified its home modification loans as compliant with federal rules, in a bid to reap in excess of $907 million in government incentive payments.

As reported by Courthouse News Service, in his suit filed under the False Claims Act, Michael J. Fisher of Southlake, Texas, alleged that he worked for four years — 2008 through 2012 — assisting attorneys in securing mortgage loan modifications for their homeowner clients.

NAFTA Is 20 Years Old – Here Are 20 Facts That Show How It Is Destroying The Economy

Destroying The Economy

(EconomicCollapseBlog) - Back in the early 1990s, the North American Free Trade Agreement was one of the hottest political issues in the country.  When he was running for president in 1992, Bill Clinton promised that NAFTA would result in an increase in the number of high quality jobs for Americans and that it would reduce illegal immigration.

False Prosperity

(EconomicCollapseBlog) - Did you know that a major event just happened in the financial markets that we have not seen since the financial crisis of 2008?  If you rely on the mainstream media for your news, you probably didn’t even hear about it.

Just prior to the last stock market crash, a massive amount of money was pulled out of junk bonds. Now it is happening again. Read the rest of this entry »

Russia seeks safe haven in gold, away from dollar and euro

18th August 2014

(RussiaToday) - Russia is taking steps to ensure that it protects itself from any future dollar or euro sanctions. Moscow boasts the world’s 5th biggest foreign exchange reserves and the 6th largest gold reserves. In total, the assets amount to over $1.5 trillion.

While the West is continuing to try and punish Russia via economic sanctions, the response of the Russian Central Bank has been to diversify away from the euro and dollar – and to buy up more gold. Read the rest of this entry »

Snubbing Obama, Russia and China Sign Historic Deal to Bypass the U.S. Dollar

18th August 2014

A Failed Russia ‘Reset’ Continues to Haunt Obama

“The sanctions we put in place against Russia are working as intended” – Barack Obama, August 6, 2014

(NowTheEndBegins) - In the summer of 2009, two dozen statesmen from Central and Eastern Europe issued a joint appeal for President Barack Obama not to forget the lessons of recent history. The White House had just rolled out its “reset” in relations with Russia as a centerpiece ofObama’s foreign policy. Flash-forward to 2014, and that reset, that “daring gamble” has proved to be yet another in a series of colossal failures of the Obama foreign policy. And now, it gets worse. Much worse.

Defining Away Economic Failure

5th August 2014

(PaulCraigRoberts) - Last week’s government guesstimate that second quarter 2014 real GDP growth will be 4% seems nonsensical on its face. There is no evidence of increases in real median family incomes or real consumer credit that would lift the economy from a first quarter decline to 4% growth in the second quarter. Middle class store closings (Sears, Macy’s, J.C. Penney) have spread into the Dollar stores used by those with lower incomes. Family Dollar, a chain in the process of closing hundreds of stores is being bought by Dollar Tree, the only one of the three Dollar store chains that is not in trouble. Wal-Mart’s sales have declined for the past 5 quarters. Read the rest of this entry »

Corporatism Stifles Innovation

5th August 2014

Corporatism Stifles Innovation

(BATR) - For an economy to grow and create actual wealth, innovation is a bedrock component in the development of enhanced prosperity. Prosperity is an intriguing concept. Simply making and accumulating money falls short of establishing a successful economic model. This recent report illustrates a prime example. Facebook stock soars, as company briefly passes IBM in market value

By most measures, Facebook is dwarfed by IBM: With about 7,000 employees, ten-year-old Facebook is on track to garner $12 billion in sales this year. The 103-year-old IBM has more than 400,000 workers and sold almost $100 billion of computer hardware and software in 2013. Read the rest of this entry »

Water costs skyrocket 1,000% where half the nation’s fruits, vegetables and nuts are grown

4th August 2014

(NaturalNews) - It is not as if there aren’t any economic factors influencing the price of groceries these days. Transportation alone, thanks to skyrocketing fuel prices, has lifted the cost of everything we buy at the grocery store. Now, one of the worst droughts in U.S. history is making the one thing absolutely vital for food production — an ample water supply — more expensive as well, and that, ultimately, will translate into even higher prices at the market.

To set the stage, back in February the U.S. Bureau or Reclamation released its first outlook of the year, in which the agency found insufficient water stocks in California to release to farmers for irrigation. That was the first time in the 54-year history of the State Water Project that had happened. Read the rest of this entry »

The Austerity Diaries: Everything That Can Go Wrong, Will

2nd August 2014

austerity

(TheOrganicPrepper) - Disasters and personal SHTFs come in all shapes and sizes.

Clearly, I am concerned about things like an Ebola pandemic, war, martial law, and economic collapse.  I’m a news junkie and am gifted (or cursed) with a vivid imagination.  But personal things can cause a lot of upheaval when you are on a tight budget.  And if Murphy’s Law holds true (and it often does) whatever can go wrong, will go wrong, generally at the worst possible time.

US funds Iron Dome as states go broke

31st July 2014

(PressTV) - An American political commentator criticizes US politicians for including millions of taxpayer money in an emergency funding bill for the Israeli military which has been relentlessly pounding the Gaza Strip with missiles, bombs and artillery shelling.

“Barbara Mikulski (Chairwoman of the Senate Appropriations Committee) wants to send $225 million more in President Obama’s proposal to build up the Iron Dome missile defense as US states go broke and Americans have their cost of living going higher,” said James Morris in an interview with Press TV Wednesday.

Internet Sales Tax Quietly Moving Through Congress

25th July 2014

Internet Sales Tax

(EricBlair) - Big retailers, including Amazon, have been lobbying long and hard for it, and now the Internet sales tax is back after being quietly reintroduced in the US Senate last week. 

The Marketplace and Internet Tax Fairness Act would force customers to pay sales taxes for online purchases from out-of-state online merchants, and it forces online retailers to collect and remit separately sales taxes to all US territories. Read the rest of this entry »

Corporatist Lobbying Replaced a Free Market

18th July 2014

Corporatist Lobbying

(BATR) - The practice of a pure free market is so rare that a plausible argument can be made that a free market economy never existed. However, as the saying goes, Once Upon A Time, economic commerce did reflect a voluntary basis for business transactions.

The fortunes of trade rested upon the mutual benefit of all parties, since repeated satisfaction built sustaining economies. Competition was the norm and the quality of goods and services developed that propelled expanding growth and prosperity for the largest numbers of participating producers and consumers. In the corporatist economic model, the goal is to create and protect monopolies, while stamping out any enterprises that challenge the Plutocrat system. Read the rest of this entry »

Armed Guards On Food Trucks

(EconomicCollapseBlog) - The basic necessities in life just keep getting more expensive. On Tuesday, Hershey announced that the price of all of their chocolate bars is going to go up by about 8 percent. That is particularly distressing to me, because I am known to love chocolate. But if it was just chocolate that was becoming significantly more expensive perhaps that would be okay. Read the rest of this entry »

Big Banks Hit with Monster $250 Billion Lawsuit in Housing Crisis

18th July 2014

Lawsuit in Housing Crisis

(WebOfDebt) - For years, homeowners have been battling Wall Street in an attempt to recover some portion of their massive losses from the housing Ponzi scheme. But progress has been slow, as they have been outgunned and out-spent by the banking titans. 

In June, however, the banks may have met their match, as some equally powerful titans strode onto the stage.Investors led by BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, and PIMCO, the world’s largest bond-fund manager, have sued some of the world’s largest banks for breach of fiduciary duty as trustees of their investment funds. The investors are seeking damages for losses surpassing $250 billion. That is the equivalent of one million homeowners with $250,000 in damages suing at one time.  Read the rest of this entry »

Insider Trading and Financial Terrorism on Comex

The first two days this week gold was subjected to a series of computer HFT-driven “flash crashes”

(PaulCraigRoberts) - The first two days this week gold was subjected to a series of computer HFT-driven “flash crashes” that were aimed at cooling off the big move higher gold has made since the beginning of June. During this move higher, the hedge funds, who typically “chase” the momentum of gold up or down, built up hefty long positions in gold futures over the last 6 weeks. In order to disrupt the upward momentum in the price of gold, the bullion banks short gold in the futures market by dumping large contracts that drive down the price and make money for the banks in the process.

Two giant U.S. business groups – the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and National Association of Manufacturers – ran ads in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Washington Post protesting sanctions against Russia.  These are not do-good political groups … they are conservative, hard-nosed pro-business groups.

Why Bitcoin Today Is Like the Internet in 1994

(AmericanBanker) – Twenty years ago, the decentralized open architecture of the Internet was inspiring entrepreneurs worldwide to build products and services while skeptics rolled their eyes and wondered why anyone would want to use this slow, rudimentary, obscure technology. Jeremy Allaire, a veteran of the early Web days and now the CEO of startup Circle Internet Financial, sees parallels between that era and the current state of digital money.

(SHTFPlan) - The story goes that in the Winter of 1928 Joe Kennedy, father of President John F. Kennedy, went to have his shoes shined. When the shoe shine boy finished he offered Kennedy a tip. “Buy Hindeburg,” he said.

Kennedy promptly sold off all of his stock holdings. Within a year the United States saw a massive stock market crash that wiped out the life savings of millions of Americans and ushered in a decade’s long Great Depression. Read the rest of this entry »
