Russian-US perceptions come full circle as the world now trusts Putin more than the US President

50 years ago, the former Soviet Union was vilified as a rogue nation bent on destroying any possibility of world peace.  And from this the United States became the sole beacon of protection, and subsequently, the most powerful empire the world had ever seen. But after the fall of the 70 year Communist regime in the early 90's, the U.S. found itself with no opposition, and a government and economy that had b ...

Contrary to mainstream rhetoric, Britain’s Brexit vote opens the door for prosperity, not decline

Freedom is a funny thing, and over the next several months the UK will have the chance to see just how successful their return to sovereignty is once they finalize their actions in leaving the European Union dictatorship.  By this, we mean that unlike the other 27 permanent and ancillary nations who must all move in lock-step with the un-elected bureaucracy ruling out of Brussels, Britain can now choose its ...

It’s not just Britain wanting to leave the EU as Switzerland revokes its application to join coalition

All one has to do is look at how the European Union (EU) Troika (EC, IMF, ECB) dealt with Greece regarding their debt insolvency to realize that the former trade union has turned immensely political, and has little desire to act equitably with every member in the coalition.  And since 2014, calls among many European nations have risen to have their country leave the EU and go back to determining their own e ...

U.S. overtakes EU in trade with Russia despite U.S. created sanctions against the Eurasian power

The United States has long been a hypocrite when it comes to economic and foreign policies.  They are willing to sanction anyone who exhibits or creates an environment not in line with the empire's whims, but at the same time are more than happy to deal with terrorists, human right abusers, and dictators if it furthers their own financial and political goals. Case in point.  Back in early 2014, the Obama ad ...

Analysts declare OPEC as finished, which opens door for power vacuum in energy sphere

As last week's OPEC meeting in Vienna came to a close, once again no consensus was formed on price and production levels, leaving OPEC to now be what many analysts are calling, a dead and finished organization. For the entire year, and especially after the U.S. removed sanctions from Iran to allow them to start selling oil in the public markets again, OPEC has been split between production increases and fre ...

Is Putin riding on Greece to help end the sanctions against Russia from the EU?

Ever since the U.S. imposed economic sanctions on Russia in the early part of 2014, the European Union has followed Washington's policy like a lapdog or a vassal state.  But the effects of these bi-lateral sanctions have caused immense strains between the political and economic segments of each nation within the EU, culminating in numerous protests, strikes, and even rises in new radical political parties. ...

As the Russian economy stands above the U.S. and Europe, Western investors rush in despite sanctions

Just as the U.S. Congress goes out of its way to allow insider trading and non-Obamacare health insurance among its own members, so too do policies like economic sanctions only exist for non-U.S. corporations and governments.  And as both the Eurozone and Wall Street continue to wallow in zero and negative interest rate environments, and extremely flat economies, the one country that the U.S. has targeted f ...

Zimbabwe becomes newest economy to demand an end to sanctions against Russia

Earlier this week, a majority of France's parliament voted to end their nation's policy of Russian sanctions in light of a continuing deterioration in their economic output.  And on April 30 another economy, this one from Africa, joined its voice in calling for an end of trade restrictions against Russia that were forged out of Washington's desire for a resurgence of a cold war against Moscow. The condemnat ...

After losses of over $20 billion, German businesses ready to end EU sanctions against Russia

As we have mentioned many times before, the economic symbiosis between European industry and Russia cannot be downplayed lightly since each earns billions of dollars per year in their transfers of energy and goods.  And going into the third year of U.S. imposed sanctions with Russia over the Kiev coup that Europe has summarily joined in with, the costs are continuing to climb to the point where businesses a ...

Foreigners dump dollars in January at the highest rate on record

From August of last year through December, foreigners dumped more than $550 billion in dollar based assets as the demise of the petrodollar in global trade continues to expand.  And as we begin 2016, a new report out for January shows that more treasuries were dumped in that month alone than in any month on record.
