Financial illiteracy: Obama suggests that millennials burdened by student loan debt is good for the economy

There is a sad fact that will go down in the legacy of one Barack Hussein Obama, and that is that he was a President who loved debt, and had no compunction in using it to bring the nation to the point of insolvency.  And on July 19, he even doubled down on this by issuing a report where his administration concluded that the student loan debt burden on a generation of Americans is actually good for the econo ...

Following Japan’s new plans for helicopter money, one Fed President calls for its use in monetary policy

Japan has been a 30+ year petri dish for central banks around the world to watch and learn from their monetary policies.  And despite the fact that in that time the island economy has gone through five recessions, people have lost nearly all their purchasing power, central banks own over 50% of all market assets, and in 2016 have seen their sovereign debt now issued in negative rates, both the Fed and the E ...

June Fed rate hike chances crushed as new jobs collapse and uncounted non-workers soar

As cyber-thieves used SWIFT to steal $80 million from the Fed, how safe are your accounts from hackers?

The American people have been subconsciously programmed to trust both their government, and their banking systems as institutions dedicated to protecting their money and livelihoods.  However, just as we are seeing today in the race for the Presidency, and in a cyber-hack of the Federal Reserve by foreigners, security only exists to protect the establishment, and actions are only taken when their power is t ...
