Macroeconomic analyst Rob Kirby has long predicted Fed money printing would have to go “on a vertical curve where money has to be added to the system . . . to keep the system from crapping out and imploding.”  Kirby said this more than a year ago.  Massive money printing can no longer be hidden, and it has disastrous and dire implications for the dollar. Kirby explains, “They are not hiding it.  It’s too big.  If you have an elephant under your carpet in the living room, you can’t say ignore the bump.  Elephants are hard to hide.  It’s also hard to hide $150 billion in daily turnover in cryptos.  That translates into a $54 trillion annual run rate.  That means trade settlement.  This is admitting there is trade settlement in dollars, and that amount is growing.  The dollar is on this exponential growth curve.  More dollars are being pushed into the world market every year, and fewer of them are being used in trade settlement.  What happens when dollars are not used in trade settlement?  They return home.  The dollars are returning home, and that’s why the price for everything in America is going up.  That’s why the equity markets are higher when fundamentals say the equity markets should be down.  We have a huge swath of the economy in America that is still shuttered from this supposed pandemic.”

Money Talks: Donors Show The Path To Restoring Freedom Of Thought And Speech In Higher Education – Wirepoints
December 1, 2021

By: Mark Glennon*

A welcome trend is unfolding in higher education. Wealthy donors are using their clout to fight the cancel mobs and woke radicals now dominating most colleges and universities. No freedom of speech or thought? Then no money for you, they are saying.

A Monday Wall Street Journal column described the movement, reporting that that dissident alumni organizations targeting at least 20 schools have formed over the last couple of years – including several this fall.

Unfortunately, there was no mention of any Illinois schools, and I have found no such groups targeting Illinois schools like Northwestern, DePaul and the University of Illinois, which have been among those that have too often traded academic freedom for mob rule.

But the path now seems clear for such groups to form here and everywhere. An umbrella organization for them has now been formed called the Alumni Free Speech Alliance.

Sunshine 100 China Holdings Defaults On SGX-Listed Bond Payment
December 5, 2021

CHINESE developer Sunshine 100 China Holdings has defaulted on US$178.9 million of debt and interest payments due Sunday (Dec 5), as the direct fallout of the woes of property companies in China continues to impact investors in Singapore.

Sunshine 100 was due to repay the US$170 million of principal and US$8.9 million of interest on its 10.5 per cent senior notes due 2021, which is listed on the Singapore Exchange (SGX).

But in a bourse filing on Dec 5, the company said it is unable to meet its debt obligations on the bonds “owing to liquidity issues arising from the adverse impact of a number of factors including the macroeconomic environment and the real estate industry”.

Dr. Elizabeth Eads is back to update us from the front lines of medicine. Dr. Eads is treating patients who have been injected with the experimental CV19 so-called “vaccines.” Dr. Eads is witnessing the horror stories of treating the unvaxed who have been made sick by the “Fully Vaccinated.” The carnage continued after the vaxed and unvaxed got together for Thanksgiving. They showed up in her North Florida emergency rooms the next day with all sorts of trouble from the injections that Eads simply calls “bioweapons.” Eads explains, “The day after Thanksgiving and through the weekend in the ER, we saw all kinds of symptoms of unvaxed people. We saw chest pain, heart attack . . . head to toe . . . rashes, and in the first time in my 25 year career, I saw a patient come in with a ruptured left ventricle. That’s a ruptured heart muscle, and he had to immediately go to open heart surgery. That patient happened to be “Fully Vaccinated” and also had the (CV19) booster within a week before traveling. This is very concerning. We are seeing an uptick across the country with chest pain, sudden cardiac deaths. We are seeing myocarditis and pericarditis, whether you are vaccinated or not vaccinated, with the Covid vaccines. This rupture, we believe, was from a fully boosted patient who had the rupture because of the synthetic spike protein in the booster. This is all very concerning. There are also concerns for transmission of the spike proteins. . . . Pfizer had in their studies that there was transmission happening. That is true, it is in the documents. You can pull the FDA approval and see that there was transmission.”

So, this is transmission from the vaxed to the unvaxed? Dr. Eads says, “Correct.”

Evil Is The Root Of All Fiat Money
December 2, 2021

“So you think that money is the root of all evil. Have you ever asked what is the root of all money?”

-Ayn Rand

Money used to be a stable medium of exchange and a store of value but that was in the days when there were sound monetary principles, mostly backed by gold or silver.

Since 1913 and especially 1971 there is no discipline and no morals when it comes to the issuing of money as unlimited amounts of fake fiat money is printed at will.

In today’s fiat money world, there is only one answer to Rand’s question “What is the root of all money?”, namely:

“Evil is the root of all fiat money.”

– Egon von Greyerz

On the IMF (International Monetary Fund) website there is an article stating that “Money is something that holds its value” – Hmmm…..

The meeting of bankers and politicians on Jekyll Island in November 1910 laid the foundations for the Federal Reserve Bank. Three years later in 1913 the Fed was founded.

Berkshire’s Munger Warns Market Is “Even Crazier” Now Than During The DotCom Boom
December 3, 2021

At the Sohn conference in Sydney on Friday, The Australian Financial Review reports that the 97-year-old curmudgeon exclaimed that markets are wildly overvalued in places and that the current environment is “even crazier” than the dotcom boom of the late 1990s that subsequently led to a bust.

“I consider this era an even crazier era than the dotcom era,” he warned.

He is not wrong…

Investor demand for U.S. technology stocks amid the pandemic has taken the Nasdaq 100 to a relative record against the Dow Jones Industrial Average. The ratio between the two gauges has exceeded a peak set during the dot-com bubble.

IMF Warns Of ‘Economic Collapse’ Unless G20 Extends Debt Relief
December 2, 2021

The IMF on Thursday urged advanced economies in the G20 to extend and improve their debt relief initiative, warning that many countries face a dire crisis without the help.

“We may see economic collapse in some countries unless G20 creditors agree to accelerate debt restructurings and suspend debt service while the restructurings are being negotiated,” IMF chief Kristalina Georgieva said in a blog, adding that it is critical private creditors also offer relief.

The G20 Debt Service Suspension Initiative (DSSI) expires at the end of the year, and without a renewal, countries would face financial pressure and spending cuts just as new Covid-19 variants are spreading and interest rates are expected to rise, she said.

“Debt challenges are pressing and the need for action is urgent. The recent Omicron variant is a stark reminder that the pandemic will be with us for a while,” Georgieva said in the blog co-authored by Ceyla Pazarbasioglu, director of the fund’s Strategy, Policy, and Review Department.
