New York's Taxi Cartel Is Collapsing. Now They Want a Bailout.
The FreemanSep 01
An age-old rap against free markets is that they give rise to monopolies that use their power to exploit consumers, crush upstarts, and stifle innovation. It was this perception that led to "trust busting" a century ago, and continues to drive the monopoly-hunting policy at the Federal Trade Commission and the Justice Department.

But if you look around at the real world, you find something different. The actually existing monopolies that do these bad things are created not by mark

Illinois Pays Lottery Winners In IOUs After Budget Crisis
ZeroHedgeSep 01
Much as Brazil is the poster child for the great EM unwind unfolding across emerging economies from LatAm to AsiaPac, Illinois is in many ways the mascot for America's state and local government fiscal crisis.

Although well documented before, the state's financial troubles were thrown into sharp relief in May when, on the heels of a state Supreme Court ruling that struck down a pension reform bid, Moody's downgraded the city of Chicago to junk.

Since then, th

Putin Says Dump Dollar
RTSep 01
Russian President Vladimir Putin has drafted a bill that aims to eliminate the US dollar and the euro from trade between CIS countries.

This means the creation of a single financial market between Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and other countries of the former Soviet Union.

"This would help expand the use of national currencies in foreign trade payments and financial services and thus create preconditions for greater liquidity of domes

Financial Times Calls For Abolishing Cash
InfowarsAug 28
The Financial Times has published an anonymous article which calls for the abolition of cash in order to give central banks and governments more power.

Entitled The case for retiring another 'barbarous relic', the article laments the fact that people are stockpiling cash in anticipation of another economic collapse, a factor which is causing, “a lot of distortion to the economic system.

CNN Tells Americans That The Stock Market Is Not Going To Crash
The Economic CollapseAug 27
On Wednesday we witnessed the third largest single day point gain for the Dow Jones Industrial Average ever.  That sounds like great news until you realize that the two largest were in October 2008 – right in the middle of the last financial crisis.  This is a perfect example of what I wrote about yesterday.  Every time the market crashes, there are huge up days, huge down days and g...

Jim Grant: The Fed Turned the Stock Market Into a 'Hall of Mirrors'
ReasonAug 27

“Confoundingly to me, people have come to be quite accepting of the value attached by fiat to these pieces of paper we call currency,” says Jim Grant, who’s the editor of Grant’s Interest Rate Observer and the author of The Forgotten Depression: The Crash That Cured Itself.

“Are prices meant to be imposed from on high, or discovered by individuals acting spontaneously in markets?

Why Hedge Funds Are A Colossal Waste of Money
The Daily SheepleAug 26
For most people, the stock market is an mysterious force that they will never understand. It might as well be a glittering slot machine as far as they’re concerned. They don’t know how it really works on the inside, all they understand is that the machine is known to pay out big from time to time. Of course, that doesn’t discourage them from trying their hand at the casino anyway. When the average person wants to place their bets on the stock market, they turn to the experts. They go to the hedg... (more)

The Fed Is Spooking the Markets Not China
Peter SchiffAug 26
Fasten your seat belts, this ride is getting interesting. Last week the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down more than 1,000 points, notching its worst weekly performance in four years. The sell-off took the Dow Jones down more than 10% from its peak valuations, thereby constituting the first official correction in four years. One third of all S&P 500 companies are already in bear market territory, having declined more than 20% from their peaks. Scarier still, the selling intensified as the wee... (more)

Chinese Markets Crash Again In Biggest Collapse In 20 Years
RTAug 25
The index has fallen 22 percent since August 19.

Investors were rattled as the China Securities Regulatory Commission made no attempt to reassure markets after Monday's crash, as they did a month ago after an 8.5 percent drop.

"It's panic selling and an issue of confidence," Wei Wei, an analyst at Huaxi Securities in Shanghai, told Bloomberg News.“The government won't step in to rescue the market again, as it's a global selloff and it's spreading everywhere now. It

Why Government Hates Cash
Mises InstituteAug 24
In April it was announced that Greece was imposing a surcharge for all cash withdrawals from bank accounts to deter citizens from clearing out their accounts. So now the Greeks will have to pay one euro per 1,000 euros that they withdraw, which is one-tenth of a percent. It doesn’t seem very big, but the principle at work is extremely big because what they’re in effect doing is breaking the exchange rate between a unit of bank deposits and a unit of currency.

Economics Is Dead, and It Is Being Killed Again
Mises InstituteAug 23
Economics is dead, and economists killed it.

What we have seen over the course of the last eighty years is a systematic dismantling of the contribution of economics to our understanding of the social world. Whatever the cause, modern economics is now not much more than formal modeling using mathematics dressed up in economics-sounding lingo. In this sense, economics is dead as a science, assuming it was ever alive. Economics in mathematical form cannot fulfill its promises and nei
