  1. The world economy is imploding.
    Living alone usually isn’t difficult, so that sounds wrong……it is usually difficult when living with someone else with whom one does not get along.
    My mother was 15 when the Crash of 1929 happened. She was the daughter of a senator, and she was surrounded by big players. She said it was the people down to their last million who jumped out of windows, not those who lost everything. Bankers made up part of the jumpers before, too.
    This tells me I am correct about the world economy imploding. One more fact in a growing pile of evidence.

  2. Russia just raised interest rates to 7.5%. I think Putin is making the hard choices right now, he allowed the Russian central bank to fail last week rather than bail it out and allow it to become TBTF. The US is overrun by such institutions, and they are fraudulent shells, and are taking the entire nation down.
    I wish the US had leaders with guts as Russia does. Putin is making the right moves to make sure their currency doesn’t fail.

  3. Fool US sanctions on Russia are bringing funds home to Russia at record rates, making the entire system stronger. As usual, the US is acting on old information……Russia dumped the dollar in November of 2010. Electronic currencies allow all nations to trade with each other using their own currencies, making the need for a world reserve currency obsolete.
    Electronic currencies translate the value of each nation’s currency, making conversion to the dollar first unnecessary. As a result, less than half the world use the dollar, and the number is dropping as the US becomes more aggressive and heavy handed.
    Russia does not need the US, but the US needs Russia, and its ally, China.
    Putting sanctions on a country that no longer uses the dollar is beyond stupid.
