Since the status quo has no workable Plan B to “growth” in an economy in which household incomes have declined 8.5% in a supposedly expanding economy, real solutions must arise outside the status quo.
It’s a lot easier to talk about what’s wrong with the status quo and fake fixes than it is to talk about real solutions–for a number of reasons.
1. It’s clear to virtually everyone who isn’t being paid to make absurd claims that everything is peachy that the status quo is failing, so discussing the failings is like shooting fish in a barrel.Continue reading »

They also discuss how it is that Colorado’s economy is booming.
In this Keiser Report Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the fact that life’s but a walking shadow, a poor homeless schmuck that struts and frets his squeegee upon thy windshield, and then is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot tabloid, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. In the second half Max interviews Michael Krieger of LibertyBlitzkrieg.com about #BankersLivesMatter and the two-tier justice system in America in relation to bankers and their crimes. They also ask, “where is Eric Holder now? Hmmm, I wonder.”
In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the Greek referendum, the 50 ways to not pay their creditors and the future for the “demerging” economy in which debts are repaid “parametrically.” In the second half, Max interviews Simon Dixon about what Bitcoin could do for Greece and whether or not, as Citi’s global chief economist says, it is the stupidest idea since Caligula made his horse a consul.

London mayoral candidate George Galloway says he would appoint radical financial commentator and RT presenter Max Keiser to be his economic advisor if he is elected to City Hall in next year’s election.
Galloway revealed the planned appointment on Twitter, adding that “Mr Banker” should take note.
Galloway, the former Respect party MP for Bradford West, will take part in the May 5, 2016, mayoral election where incumbent Boris Johnson will not be standing, as he was elected an MP for Uxbridge and South Ruislip in the UK general election. Two-time Mayor Johnson is widely expected to receive a portfolio in the Conservative Cabinet after he steps down as mayor.
Keiser, an American citizen who lives in London, said he and Galloway had been discussing the possibility for “several years,” claiming he could bring “unparalleled experience and expertise to this job.”Continue reading »
Keiser Report: War on terror – self-leaking ice cream cone (E731)
Mar 14, 2015
In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the business model of the war on terror in which the droning of wedding parties is nothing personal just business. Same goes for de-dollarization as China builds an alternative to SWIFT – nothing personal, just business. In the second half, Max interviews former CIA agent and open source advocate, Robert David Steele, about false flags and moral hazard.
“The best description of the start (with Nixon) of this economic nightmare for most workers around the world……to NAFTA and now Obama’s debacle.
This will take less than 30 minutes…..well worth the time.”
In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert with a double header discuss the economics of low wages as productivity gains go to owners of capital rather than providers of labour to create that wealth. They look at declining union membership and the rise of temp work, such as “mini-jobs” in Germany and zero hour contracts in the United Kingdom, as a means of removing collective bargaining power from workers while owners of capital and corporations gain power through collective bargaining agreements known as international ‘free trade’ deals negotiated by their union rep – the US State Department.
In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert are joined by Professor Steve Keen (@ProfSteveKeen) to discuss building new economic models to make the current model obsolete.

In this Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss removing the document to remove the men who rule our bureaucratic world – from their mountains of derivatives paperwork, which has added nothing to global GDP to the piles of QE, which has added merely more paper gains to an over-bloated stock market.
In the second half, Max interviews David Graeber about his new book, The Utopia of Rules: On Technology, Stupidity and the Secret Joys of Bureaucracy. They talk about the Sovietization of capitalism as more and more paperwork and more and more contracts are required for the simplest of every day financial exchanges. Max introduces the concept of a Fee-ocracy which believes in the ideology of fee-ism, whereby spinning enough contracts and debt makes us all rich as epitomized by the practice of Quantitative Easing which is printing paperwork.
In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert shout, “Je Suis Bill Black,” as free speech is not allowed if the conversation turns to banking crimes and financial system insolvency. In the second half, Max interviews Green party candidate for Vauxhall, Gulnar Hasnain. We discuss crowdfunding and cryptocurrency.
In this Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert warn Greece to beware bureaucrats and bankers bearing bailouts.

Every week Max Keiser looks at all the scandal behind the financial news headlines.
In this episode of the Keiser Report back in London, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss negative savings rates on the way for retail savers in Europe because banks no longer need deposits nor do they need to make loans – in other words, they are no longer really banks. In the second half, Max interviews filmmaker, blogger and author, Kerry-anne Mendoza, about her new top selling book, “Austerity: The demolition of the welfare state and the rise of the zombie economy.”
In this episode of the Keiser Report back in London, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the Greek situation and that a nation is not what it thinks it is but what others attempt to hide about that nation – like the fact that it is bankrupt. They discuss the role Goldman Sachs played in helping Greece hide its debts and, thus, strapping it to the euro and the mispricing of real risk by well-compensated bond investors lending to Greece at ultra low interest rates. They also discuss that, while deflated footballs was the main headline on the nightly news in America, a memo was delivered to Obama outlining the various ways that brokers defraud American investors of years worth of retirement income.
American lawmakers have colluded with Wall Street executives to build an economy that no longer works in the best interest of, or even needs, the majority of the American public, according to RT financial host Max Keiser.
RT:There’s a lot of hype and some would say overreaction around all of this but the tell-tale sign is the markets. They haven’t reacted negatively. Is there really a crisis here?
Max Keiser: I think we should take the words of Warren Buffet to heart. He basically described the Federal Reserve Bank and the American economy as one giant hedge fund. And he is absolutely correct. The way that Wall Street, Washington, and these large funds approach America is as a trade that is backed by $120,000 or $130,000 of debt and that debt gets traded around every day. And the whole initiative here is to buy hedge funds and try to squeak out profits, and they don’t really care who they hurt in the process. Remember America is run by what I call financial jihadists who are basically suicide bankers. Warren Buffett, of course, is one of these suicide bankers and America, from the outside of course, looks like they’re trying to commit financial suicide. But that’s what a financial jihadist does, or a suicide banker. They blow themselves up for their cause and in this case it’s market fundamentalism, a belief in the profit – not the prophet.
RT:But other tell-tale signs of the economy improving are there, Max. Are we to believe the economic indicators which suggest the US economy is on the up?Continue reading »
