Ron Paul’s hard work is paying off

17th September 2014

(Rare) - Campaign for Liberty, an organization founded by Ron Paul, sent out a press release Wednesday announcing that the H.R. 24 bill, “Audit the Fed,” passed by a vote of 333-92, the first time that’s happened since former Congressman Paul introduced the original bill in 2012.

“I am pleased to see the House of Representatives once again pass this historic legislation,” Ron Paul said in the release.  “The support ‘Audit the Fed’ has received over the past few years has been tremendous. I urge Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to listen to the American people and hold a vote on ‘Audit the Fed’ right away.”

Here’s some background information on “Audit the Fed”: Read the rest of this entry »

The U.S. National Debt Has Grown By More Than A Trillion Dollars In The Last 12 Months

15th September 2014

(EconomicCollapseBlog) - The idea that the Obama administration has the budget deficit under control is a complete and total lie.  According to the U.S. Treasury, the federal government has officially run a deficit of 589 billion dollars for the first 11 months of fiscal year 2014. But this number is just for public consumption and it relies on accounting tricks which massively understate how much debt is actually being accumulated.

If you want to know what the real budget deficit is, all you have to do is go to a U.S. Treasury website which calculates the U.S. national debt to the penny. On September 30th, 2013 the U.S. national debt was sitting at $16,738,183,526,697.32. As I write this, the U.S. national debt is sitting at $17,742,108,970,073.37. That means that the U.S. national debt has actually grown by more than a trillion dollars in less than 12 months.  We continue to wildly run up debt as if there is no tomorrow, and by doing so we are destroying the future of this nation.

Small Business Ownership In America Is At An All-Time Low

15th September 2014

(EconomicCollapseBlog) - According to the Federal Reserve, the percentage of American families that own a small business is at the lowest level that has ever been recorded.  In a report that was just released entitled “Changes in U.S. Family Finances from 2010 to 2013: Evidence from the Survey of Consumer Finances“, the Federal Reserve revealed that small business ownership in America “fell substantially” between 2010 and 2013.  Even in the midst of this so-called “economic recovery”, small business ownership in America has now fallen to an all-time low.

US-Russia political tensions will speed up demise of dollar: Economist

11th September 2014

(PressTV) – An American economist says the political tensions between Washington and Moscow will speed up the demise of the US dollar in international transactions.

“The political tensions between the United States and Russia has increased or speeded up the process of which nations are doing business between countries instead of dollars and doing it with their local currencies,” Mark Thornton, Senior Fellow at Mises Institute, told Press TV on Wednesday.

If The Economy Is Recovering, Why Is The Labor Force Participation Rate At A 36 Year Low?

9th September 2014

Labor Force Participation Rate At A 36 Year Low

(EconomicCollapseBlog) - Should we be concerned that the percentage of Americans who are either working or looking for work is the lowest that it has been in 36 years? In August, an all-time record high 92,269,000 Americans 16 years of age and older did not “participate in the labor force”.  And when you throw in the people that are considered to be “in the labor force” but are not currently employed, that pushes the total of working age Americans that do not have jobs to well over 100 million.

No Economy For Americans

9th September 2014

The job picture of “the world’s only superpower,” is the picture of employment in a Third World country

(PaulCraigRoberts) - The Dow Jones stock average closed Friday at 17,137, despite the fact that the payroll jobs report was a measly 125,000 new jobs for August, an insufficient amount to keep up with the growth in the working age population.

The low 125,000 jobs figure is also inconsistent with the Bureau of Economic Analysis’ second estimate of second quarter 2014 US GDP growth of 4.2 percent–a figure beyond the capability of the present-day US economy.

Clearly, the economic numbers are out of sync with one another. They are also out of sync with reality. Read the rest of this entry »

Report: It’s YOUR Fault: Fed Says Americans Who “Hoard Money” Are To Blame For Poor Economy

7th September 2014

(SHTFPlan) - Despite arguments to the contrary from the Obama administration, mounting evidence suggests that the U.S. economy is rapidly falling back into negative growth territory. More Americans are out of the workforce than ever before, median household incomes are at levels not seen since 1967, and consumer spending is coming to a veritable standstill. The crisis is apparently so significant that a Federal Reserve governor recently said U.S. policymakers are crafting regulations that will force bank depositors to cover any losses should their financial institutions fail.

The question that many are asking is, how did this happen? How, after six years of recovery efforts and trillions of dollars printed, is it possible that the economy is not booming again?

This week the Federal Reserve published a report that claims to have figured it out and it turns out that the renewed economic downturn has nothing to do with foreign outsourcing, high taxation, increased health care costs for business or rising consumer prices for food and energy.

No, according to the Fed it is your fault. Read the rest of this entry »

The American Bankers Association and the Quiet War on Students

6th September 2014

(Occupy.com) - College students and graduates around the nation are buried in debt and trying to succeed in an extremely difficult and competitive economic environment. Many people are graduating only to find that they are unable to get the jobs they want either due to the small number of available positions or, more usually, the problem that they lack “experience” – and are thus reduced to working menial jobs while paying back exorbitant loans.

So far very little legislation has been passed to aid students in paying back their loans, and many blame politicians. However, the situation goes deeper than this and lies, in part, with a little-known institution called the American Bankers Association. Read the rest of this entry »

Fast food protesters to be hit with massive job losses when Obama grants amnesty in November

6th September 2014

(NaturalNews) - My heart goes out to all those fast food workers protesting for higher wages, but I’m sad to have to watch them experience the harsh lesson in real-world economics that’s about to hit home. By taking to the streets and demanding $15 / hr. in wages, fast food workers are unintentionally making themselves economically obsolete. They are, in essence, guaranteeing their own unemployment.

Sadly, few of the protesters realize this. Nor will they realize why they are being fired when that day soon arrives. Entry-level fast food workers, after all, tend to have relatively little knowledge of how business really works, where money comes from, where money goes and why no private sector business can stay in business for very long if its operating costs exceed its income.

On The Bring Of A Major Crisis: “This Will Be A Literal Collapse Of The Entire Global Monetary System”

6th September 2014

Discussions of the possible collapse of the U.S. dollar often center around how such an event will affect the domestic economy

(SHTFPlan) - Discussions of the possible collapse of the U.S. dollar often center around how such an event will affect the domestic economy. But the dollar doesn’t just operate inside of a bubble. It is the world’s reserve currency for a reason. Some sixty-six countries world-wide either utilize it as their primary currency or peg their own currencies to its exchange rate. What this means, as noted by Future Money Trends in the micro documentary below, is that if and when the dollar does come under attack the fallout will be everywhere. The collapse will happen simultaneously and affect billions of people worldwide. Read the rest of this entry »

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?

(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.

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

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.

“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.
