Keiser Report: Mad Cows and Mad Men
In this episode of the Keiser Report from Riga, Latvia, Max and Stacy look at Russia’s gold reserves and the rise of bitcoin around the world as a possible sign that nations and people are saying ‘adios’ to fiat. As the ECB’s outgoing president promises that negative rates will NOT collapse the financial system, it seems quite a few don’t actually believe this. In the second half, Max talks to Francis Pouliot of BullBitcoin.com about the main qualities of bitcoin which make it the best hard money of all.

In this episode of the #KeiserReport, Max and Stacy, in their latest episode from Paris, mark the beginning of their ten year anniversary by looking back on where it all started. From autumn of 2009, it started with the very first episode about the late Danny Schechter’s film, PLUNDER: THE CRIME OF OUR TIME. Ten years later this still holds true both in the real economy where the world continues to suffer from the quantitative easing and other extraordinary measures taken to bailout the banks after their plunder and on the Keiser Report where the ongoing plunder and the rolling aftermath unfold in headlines across each episode. They then turn to their conversation with #MattTaibbi from one of the show’s first ever episodes about the naked short selling swindle. They then conclude with a look at the Global Insurrection Against Banker Occupation (#GIABO) that continues to this day for the same (mostly) unprosecuted crimes outlined since episode one.

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max and Stacy discuss the odd similarity of protestors in Hong Kong and in France having their eyes targeted by ‘sublethal’ stun grenades. They review the article in GQ Magazine by Robert Chalmers exploring the ‘real victims’ of the ‘yellow vest revolution’ and note the connection between the dozens of protestors who have lost an eye while the online surveillance state also seeks to control what we see and read. In the second half, Max interviews independent journalist Paul Moreira about the Yellow Vest movement in France. What did he see during his many weeks on the frontline with his journalism? They discuss the economic and political demands of the protestors and the violence with which those demands have been met. They also place the protests within the other protests taking place in various regions of the world. Also: (Max Keiser) – Keiser Report: Are Negative Interest Rates Signaling Population Decline?
In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max and Stacy discuss the hedge fund complaining more people aren’t more bearish while pointing at stock market prices as if they were still real and as if we all still lived in a world before all the financial fakery – from fake money to algorithmic trading. They also look at the numbers proving that the bottom half of all U.S. households have 32% less wealth than in 2003 while the top 1% have more than twice as much as they did then. In the second half, Max continues his interview with Roy Sebag of Goldmoney.com about negative interest rates – what is the invisible hand argument? What if negative interest rates are telling us that we are going to see a rapid decline in the world’s population? It would be the ‘invisible hand solution’ to the wealth inequality problem. Also: (Max Keiser) – Keiser Report: Financial vandalism and dollar toast
In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max and Stacy discuss the ‘financial vandalism’ intentionally trashing the investment portfolios of pensions around the world. In the second half, Max interviews Roy Sebag of GoldMoney.com and Mene.com about negative-yielding bonds and the significance of Mark Carney’s warning about the need for the world to adopt a more stable standard than the US dollar. Also: (Max Keiser) – Keiser Report: The Assignat is Back
In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max and Stacy discuss the fact that the entire banking and monetary systems and thus our economies are built around maintaining ever larger quantities of debt against ever rising house prices. Max and Stacy ask if this means that the assignat is back? In the second half, Max continues his interview with Mark Valek of the annual “In Gold We Trust Report”. They discuss the stock to flow ratio of gold and bitcoin and why it matters.
