Foreign bartender hires take unemployment rate below 5%

As usual, today's new job report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics isn't what it seems, and proves once again that government reporting is simply a political tool for the state's benefit rather than as a true barometer of the economy.  And all one simply has to do is look at how the Feb. 5 number came in far below analyst projections, yet the unemployment rate fell below 5% and to its lowest level in eigh ...

People revolt after 12 nations sign the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement

It is interesting to dissect which governments and nation states are simply vassals of Washington hegemony, and which actually put their people and priorities first.  Earlier this week a German court ruled that a major provision within the TTIP is without cause because corporations shouldn't have, and don't need a separate non-sovereign court system to mediate over financial disputes between companies and g ...

January ends with U.S. debt crossing over $19 trillion

A new report came out on Feb. 1 showing that the national debt has now crossed over $19 trillion, making it extremely likely that the U.S. will end Obama's term in office with a debt obligation of over $20 trillion.  And with Congress simply abrogating their duties and giving the government carte blanche authority to borrow and spend as much as they want, whomever wins the Presidency this November will auto ...

Peter Schiff: Recession and NIRP in the cards for U.S. before November election

What should make everyone feel differently this time about the state of the economy is how custom and tradition were thrown out the window back in December when the Federal Reserve intervened in the financial system within 12 months of a presidential election.  These actions are almost unheard of because the central bank always feared being labeled a political entity since their moves would in the end benef ...

Goldman Sachs fined only $5.1 billion for causing 2008 financial crisis

It pays to know the right people when it comes to most things in life, and this axiom cannot be said any better for the financial institution known as Goldman Sachs.  Seven years ago, the bank that feeds executives into the highest levels of government and central banks should have gone bankrupt and disappeared like Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers.  But thanks to one of their own being in the position of U ...

Venezuela past the point of no return, expected to be next hyper-inflationary state

It has been about a decade since the last instance of true hyperinflation rocked a nation state, with Zimbabwe becoming the most recent 'Weimar Republic' example in the global economy.  And while their solution was to simply stop printing their local currency and transition into using dollars (and now Yuan) as their domestic medium of trade, their overall impact on the global economy was relatively negligib ...
