Proving Yet Again That Global Weakness Starts In The U.S.

By Jeffrey P. Snider, Alhambra Investment Partners When commenting on any weakness in the US economy, it has become common even shorthand for any outlet or author to affix the conventional explanation. Suspiciously low growth rates and far too many outright contractions, especially in manufacturing and industry, are blamed on overseas weakness and the dollar as … Continue reading

U.S. Treasuries Will Sink Into A Black Hole – Egon Von Greyerz

By Egon Von Greyerz, GoldSwitzerland Investors around the world are blissfully ignorant of what will hit them in coming months and years.

Where It All Went Wrong: The U.S. ‘Recovery’ Is Hollow, The Fed’s Growth Narrative Is False

By Jeffrey P. Snider, Alhambra Investment Partners With the housing recovery, it is perhaps because it has been much more visible and earnest that the disparity is more easily appreciated and understood. Prices have surged in some places as much as the housing mania portion of the great bubble of the 2000’s, yet that has taken … Continue reading

What Did Fed Chairman Yellen Whisper In Obama’s Ear?

By Ron Paul, Ron Paul Institute Last week, President Obama and Vice President Biden held a hastily arranged secret meeting with Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen.

The Real Reason The Fed Will Not Raise Rates Again

Each recovery, then and now, was at least moving in the right direction but not … Continue reading

Declining Profits, Rising Defaults Assure 2016 Recession

By David Haggith, The Great Recession Blog I believe a 2016 recession is already a fact in the US, and the Great Recession will return with a vengeance. That recession never really ended.

Move Your Money “Underground” Before The Global Bank Run Begins
