Dylan, in case it wasn't clear; that remark wasn't directed toward you, but toward the person who made the clip. It's his presentation which strikes me as being sensationalized (and thus suspect).

Jeff Nielson replied to the topic Re: Professor Antal Fekete in the forums.
Debsyl, Max Keiser has dropped off my list of reference sources for two (related) reasons: his bluster, and his sloppiness.

Max Keiser is the King of Hyperbole. And one inevitable trait of people who indulge in hyperbole is sloppiness -- because they are more interested in being sensational than being correct. In this clip, however; Keiser is simply wrong.

At almost the 10-minute mark exactly; he comes out with a statement which is simply preposterous. He says that inflation is not because of all the money-printing, but rather "because the oligopolies are engaging in price-gouging".

Now as I have stated previously; oligopolies (and monopolies) do have a propensity for price-gouging. This is one of their many evils. But that is based upon the ability to pay (for their captive consumers). You can't engage in "price-gouging" with people whose wallets are empty -- because there is no more to squeeze out of them.

If you over-price your goods, you actually REDUCE rather than increase profits. So the oligopolies (and the One Bank) can only engage in very limited price-gouging -- generally (and ironically) only with respect to the luxury items purchased by the wealthy (the only people who can be price-gouged successfully).

As we all know; THIS is what is causing all the inflation:

And what is so silly here is that immediately before Keiser makes his preposterous statement about the cause of inflation; he was talking about all the "gobs" of quantitative easing being spewed by the Fed. Indeed, then Keiser makes a complete idiot of himself by stating that the money-printing "causes deflation"

This is the problem with Keiser, and others of his ilk. It doesn't help us that they (generally) get their facts straight, when they are prone to (gigantic) blunders in stating their conclusions. And this gets to the crux of your actual question.

My historic knowledge of markets is generally weak. This is why I look to (and credit) reference sources like Charles Savoie ("The Silver Stealers"), Bill Still ("The Money Masters"), and Darryl Schoon. So I'm not really the right person to ask with respect to whether Keiser (and Fekete) is right on this particular subject -- since I don't know the facts as well as they do.

But if we can't trust Keiser's conclusions, then what about Fekete? Regular readers most likely have seen me rejecting some of Fekete's theories in the past (particularly concerning the silver market) because they did not make logical sense.

For instance; several years ago Fekete came out with the preposterous theory that China was (primarily) behind silver manipulation -- as a means of "earning interest" on its (supposed) "secret stockpile" of silver. There are several problems here.

First Fekete has no proof that China even has a secret silver stockpile. Secondly, his analysis makes no sense. As I have pointed out in several commentaries; if you under-price ANYTHING, you destroy supply through over-consumption.

I simply refuse to believe that China would recklessly destroy global silver stockpiles, simply for the (petty) motive of collecting modest amounts of paper "interest" on its silver. The COST of such a strategy grossly exceeds its benefits -- and China is not stupid.

So we have two individuals here whose reasoning cannot be trusted (lol), discussing "bond market operations" in the 1920's. And how does Fekete start?

The Federal Reserve Act was not altogether bad.


And he follows that immediately with this idiocy:

People create money, not central banks.

This is simply wrong. People generate (i.e. create) economic activity. Buying things, selling things; and earning wages or profits. This economic activity produces a "multiplier effect" which allows us to use the same dollar again and again. But this is NOT "money creation". So in the first minute of Fekete's appearance here, my previous criticisms were vindicated -- because the man can't think (correctly).

Was there a U.S. "bond market collapse" (covered up be the media) in 1921? It's certainly possible that Fekete has his facts straight on this topic -- but you can't trust any of his analysis. "Retired professors" are no better a source for clear thinking than the active ones.

And both of these idiots continue to talk about "deflation"...incorrectly. First of all they imply that it's a bigger issue (at the moment) than inflation. Secondly (having no grasp of economics) they imply that deflation is BAD. It's not; it's the most-cleansing force for sick economies.

The problem is that our economies are not "sick". They are terminal. What happens if you give (belatedly) give a terminal patient the correct medicine (deflation)? They still die -- but it doesn't make the medication "bad".

Deflation Propaganda: the Great Perversion
When Deflation Becomes Hyperinflation

The only "problem" here is inflation. Stay away from these Two Idiots.

P.S. My understanding here (according to what Fekete said himself) is that he is a professor of MATHEMATICS. And (apparently) he has no formal training in economics. Thus we have a retired professor inventing "theories" in a field in which he doesn't even have any credentials.

P.P.S. I did like one moment in the clip (lol). That was when Fekete came out with his general metaphor about how you "can't kick the garbage up into the attic" (forever). Metaphorically, eventually gravity kicks in (once the weight of the garbage is too great) and it MUST all come crashing down.

Economically; this is precisely what that Psychopaths and Suicide Jockeys have been doing for the past quarter-century: they haven't been simply engaging in "unsustainable" policies, they have been engaging in ridiculously unsustainable policies -- kicking their (our) "garbage" up into the attic (year after year after year).

Dylan, I never suggested that such information should not be reported (assuming it was/is legitimate). What I'm saying is that I would be much more favorably inclined toward what was presented in that clip if it was presented in a more measured manner.

First of all, I don't see any point/justification in acting like this is some great piece of sleuthing.

Legendary Songwriter with Alzheimer’s Releases His Final Epic Ballad!

The final ballad is called “I’m Not Gonna Miss You.” The melody is somber and contemplative, but the lyrics show Campbell’s ability to find irony in his disease. The result is a beautiful combination of sadness and joy, which ends much too quickly.

Debsyl, I always get really sad when I see someone permanently (and sometimes fatally) afflicted with some condition which has devastated their life. It's especially sad with respect to those born with some catastrophic disability as (in one way or another) they never had the opportunity to appreciate the Universe in all its splendor.

But either way that overwhelming sense of sadness makes it difficult for me to find joy in such circumstances. The only silver-lining I could find is that (because he was able to record a song like this) Campbell still has periods (moments?) of lucidity which allow him to recognize what has happened (is happening) to him.

And when I thought about that; it just made sadder...

I`m only posting it because I have personally vetted it and can vouch that there are NO swear words used. Maybe he reads the BBC forums

I thought these surreal videos would be limited to Africa but I was wrong. Observe clipboard man in plain clothes casually helping the Haz Mat crew and their patient with the deadly ebola virus onto the plane. Perhaps he has sampled some of the "miraculous blood" of Dr Kent Bradley and doen`t feel he should be concerned.

Note at some point around 7.00 the video presenter entertains the notion that this footage may be deliberately planted to sucker in conspiracy theorists. This is the Mental Jacketing aspect of the Psy Op.
Another possibility which is a constant theme in the Full Mental Jacket thread is that the world is "supposed" to catch the West in the act of manufacturing these fake fake crises.

Dylan, if anything I'm more skeptical that this is just a (straight-up) "hoax". I'll simply quote what the guy who made the clip says again and again: "it doesn't make sense".

It makes no sense at all to stage a hoax this clumsily. Five people are being filmed transporting this "ebola patient", but only four are wearing haz-mat suits??? No one could be that stupid.

Yes, the fact that an unprotected individual is casually loitering around a supposedly infected individual is strongly indicative that the woman is not infected. But this has "Boston Marathon" written all over it.

With that false-flag event; clearly the Psychopaths wanted any/every thinking individual to know that it was a false-flag event. Here, as a matter of elementary logic; if this was a straight-up "hoax", they would not want everyone (paying attention) to know it was a hoax -- as that defeats the entire purpose of the exercise.

While we lack sufficient data to say precisely what is going here; the one definitive conclusion which we can reach is that this is not a straight-up hoax. Any six-year old could see through the clip being "analyzed" here. It is somewhat less-impressive than someone spotting Waldo in a "Where's Waldo?" book.

For me to take this person seriously; this guy has to start "making sense" himself. Not (simultaneously) shouting "hoax" and "this makes no sense". Why stage a (supposed) hoax in such an utterly incompetent/inept manner???

Analysis which makes no sense isn't really "analysis".

...The main Liberian newspaper published an article on it`s front page penned by a professor of plant pathology, explicitly claiming that Ebola is US manufactured disease being used to covertly wage war on the people of Africa.

Whether this particular "epidemic" episode may be real or faked; there is absolutely no doubt that the Psychopaths "manufacture wage war on the people of Africa". Indeed, about the only element of "New World Order" mythology which I do take seriously is what we hear about the Oligarchs wanting to "reduce the surplus population" (to quote Dickens) -- and Africa has the world's highest birth-rate/population growth.

It certainly cannot be pure, genetic coincidence that the two, most-deadly diseases to have emerged over the past several decades were (supposedly) "born" in Africa. Indeed, there is no debate over whether the "AIDS epidemic" in Africa is real or imagined. In the worst-hit nations; that plague has crippled entire societies.

Think about this: the psychopaths simultaneously cause a real plague and produce all sorts of "hoax" videos and other disinformation themselves. This not only provides them with the manufactured catastrophe which we know they are preparing (in one form or another), but it also discredits the Alternative Media -- who are all shouting "hoax", while a real plague is spreading.

The Alternative Media becomes "the Boy Who Cried Wolf". So when the Psychopaths start perpetrating all their police-state atrocities after they manufacture this plague catastrophe, none of the Sheep pay attention to the Alternative Media when they report these real crimes.

We MUST remain skeptical about materials which come to us in the alternative media, with pretty much the same degree of skepticism as with mainstream propaganda. Only that (healthy) attitude of detachment (and analytical scrutiny) will prepare people for the ever-greater quantities of disinformation being spewed at us.

It's even easier to fake a hoax than to create one.

Here's another thought. Maybe foul-mouthed Shock-Jocks will become the next category of Disinformation Artists, because it takes so little skill/finesse to simply spew expletives. Thus even if (hypothetically) you're right and I'm wrong, and using such language is (at first) effective in reaching people and shaking them out of their apathy, then we know what would come next.

If that was/is the case; then tomorrow we would see dozens of Disinformation Stooges using precisely the same (profane) schtick to spread their lies -- because it's so easy to communicate in this (low-brow) manner.

So I say (again) those of us in the Alternative Media should stay on "the high road", because it's far more difficult for the Psychopaths (and their Stooges) to mimic virtuous and/or intelligent behavior than it is for them to mimic someone like this.

Oil has been dropping, especially Brent Crude. Wholesale gasoline is down considerably, but is not reflected at the pumps as much.

Is this the beginning of the collapse, or is it pre-election politics? I cannot tell if the market numbers are just more manipulation or a sign of true market forces at work.

And yes, I posted it under the "Dow Reaches New High" thread for irony.

DayOwl, these are classic signs of an "exhausted market", i.e. a bubble-market about to burst. However, we've had signs of such "exhaustion" previously. We'll see a week or so of particularly choppy turbulence, then the bubbles just start soaring higher again. It's like watching a glutton pause in his gorging, to allow a little indigestion to pass, and then he resumes stuffing his face again.

What you have to understand now is the reality of Hostage Markets, and the Master Algorithm for manipulating all of these markets. None of the previous "rules" of our markets even apply any longer. So signs of some "turning point", even distinct/obvious signs, don't necessarily have any significance.

It's my firm belief that these bubbles won't be ALLOWED to pop until the One Bank has a particular (manufactured) catastrophe on which to blame the collapse of the bubbles -- so no one points their fingers at the bankers. If this "ebola outbreak" is deliberately turned into a pandemic; that would be one possible scapegoat for the crash looming ahead of us.

If not a plague, then almost certainly it will be a war, or "war-like event" (lol), which (of course) will be blamed on Terrorist Boogeymen.

Warren Buffet isn't sitting with $50+ BILLION waiting for some ordinary crash. He's waiting (and salivating) in anticipation of the Mother of All Crashes. And a crash of that magnitude always requires a Scapegoat.

Here's a thought which just occurred to me, ironically from a whirlpool conversation I had following a work-out yesterday. A woman remarked (apparently correctly) that North American real estate bubbles were being ratcheted higher by (apparently) large quantities of "foreign dollars".

But is this true.

I just saw a CBC documentary (and other news items) indicating that in many urban housing developments that as many as 75% are (supposedly) owned by "foreign buyers", most of whom never occupy the buildings -- and thus the units sit empty.

In other words; we have absolutely no way of verifying that any of these units are being bought by "foreign (and generally Asian) buyers", as opposed to WESTERN BANKERS. Think about it.

Thanks to INSANE (i.e. near-infinite) money-printing, permanent near-zero interest rates, and (the insanity/criminality of) "fractional reserve banking"; the One Bank has access to as much as $100 TRILLION, every year.

It would take only 1% (or so) of one year's free money for the bankers to be (secretly) buying-up all these housing units (at ultra-insane prices), in order to deliberately create the Mother of All Bubbles in North American markets. When they then pop these bubbles (with the Mother of All Crashes), by the time they finish all of the foreclosing, they would/could own MOST OF our real estate.

Jeff Nielson replied to the topic Re: Ebola 'spreading' in Texas? in the forums.
P.S. Here is the official explanation (from the Reuters article) as to how these hospital workers were infected:

News of the second worker's diagnosis follows criticism of the hospital's initial handling of the disease by its nurses, in a statement Tuesday by National Nurses United, which is both a union and a professional association for U.S. nurses.

The nurses said the hospital lacked protocols to deal with an Ebola patient, offered no advance training and provided them with insufficient gear, including non-impermeable gowns, gloves with no taping around wrists and suits that left their necks exposed.


Basic principles of infection control were violated by both the hospital's Infectious Disease Department and CDC officials, the nurses said, with no one picking up hazardous waste "as it piled to the ceiling."

"The nurses strongly feel unsupported, unprepared, lied to, and deserted to handle the situation on their own," the statement said.

If this is actually true (i.e. hospitals are generally unprepared or even INCAPABLE of properly implementing quarantine procedures); then we are in serious trouble.
11:48 AM
Jeff Nielson created a new topic Ebola 'spreading' in Texas? in the forums.
Following up on a post by Dylan on another thread; I think it's time to explore whether the One Bank has "shown its cards" as to what sort of manufactured catastrophe the bankers intend to create -- as a prelude/pretext for the inevitable economic crash we know MUST come soon.

As we ponder whether these Psychopaths are creating either an "ebola hoax", or a bona fide pandemic; consider some of these scary factors.

1) Total control over the media. The One Bank can concoct any story-line it wants as to the progress of this "epidemic"(?). It knows that it will then be parroted (without thinking) by all the other media drones. So we have absolutely no way of knowing (with certainty) what is actually going on.

2) Once infected(?), the infected patient is immediately "quarantined" -- i.e. totally cut-off from the outside world. This means (for example) that if people were being deliberately infected (in order to manufacture a pandemic) that before they ever had the opportunity to reveal what had been done to them that they would be locked away in a hospital, totally cut-off from their own families, let alone any media.

This means it would be just as easy for the Psychopaths to manufacture a deliberate pandemic as it would be for them to just create a massive hoax. Now we get to the latest report from the propaganda machine:

Second Texas healthcare worker with Ebola had traveled by plane

For those who have missed the (North American) story-line to date; we've been told that a "traveler from Liberia" carried the Ebola virus with him into the U.S., and he (supposedly) wasn't even hospitalized (let alone diagnosed) the first time he sought treatment.

Since that time; while (apparently) no one else who came within proximity of the Liberian traveler has been infected. But now we're told that TWO of the Texas hospital workers who treated this patient (the SECOND time he sought medical treatment) are supposedly infected.

How does this happen?

By the second time he sought treatment; he was obviously very ill, making no secret he was traveling from Liberia, and would have had an obvious accent (assuming he even spoke English). How could a hospital be so sloppy as to allow MULTIPLE personnel to become infected -- from a single (obvious) Ebola infection?

Just imagine how fast the disease would have already spread in Africa (and decimated all health-care personnel) if each infected patient then infected TWO of the health-care workers providing treatment. This is highly implausible (to say the least), according to the official story-line.

Added to the story-line; we're told that the second health-care worker has "traveled by plane" meaning the close proximity (and large crowd) of an airport, and the even closer proximity of an airline flight. And note how easy it would be for this innocent beginning to mushroom into a full-fledged plague.

Any secondary infections from this second health-care worker would NOT be as obvious (when these patients eventually sought medical treatment) as a black man traveling from Liberia (lol). Thus if two health-care workers can (supposedly) get infected from a patient who should have aroused IMMEDIATE suspicions (and quarantine procedures) and can be allowed to TRAVEL before being detected; then any new infections could cause much more damage.

This brings us to the other issue: how could this health-care worker have been allowed to travel at all? Clearly anyone exposed to this patient BEFORE quarantine procedures (and haz-mat gear) were in place would have to be quarantined themselves. And (presumably) anyone treating this patient AFTER he had been diagnosed would receive regular blood tests -- to ensure detection at the earliest possible stage.

In short; we already have a story-line in place where this could spread into a full-fledged North American "plague", through events no less-plausible than what has already (supposedly) transpired.

Second Texas healthcare worker with Ebola had traveled by plane

(Reuters) - A second Texas healthcare worker who tested positive for Ebola after caring for a patient with the virus had traveled by plane a day before she reported symptoms, U.S. and airline officials said on Wednesday.

The worker at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas had taken a Frontier Airlines flight from Cleveland, Ohio, to Dallas-Fort Worth on Oct. 13, the officials said.

She was isolated immediately after reporting a fever on Tuesday, officials of the Texas Department of State Health Services said. The health worker had treated Liberian patient Thomas Eric Duncan, who died of Ebola and was the first patient diagnosed with the virus in the United States.

At least 4,447 people have died in West Africa in the worst Ebola outbreak on record, but cases in the United States and Europe have been limited. The virus can cause fever, bleeding, vomiting and diarrhea, and spreads through contact with bodily fluids...

While BBC could theoretically be shut-down by similar means; any supposed "court order" would have to be directed to the independent company which owns/operates our server, not a gigantic monopoly like Google. Our Host has a motive to make sure that any (supposed) "court order" was totally legitimate -- or they lose a client.

Conversely gigantic monopolies like Google can SQUEEZE enormous profits out of our economies. Not only does it not care about losing Small Fish (like Harvey Organ) from its own enormous business, it wants to help our Traitor Governments snuff-out the Truth-Tellers -- since (obviously) Google is "part of the problem", not the solution.

Apologies if the language put you off Debsyl but I did warn beforehand of this.

I did sit through it and STILL considered it worthy of attention which is why I posted it.

No disrespect, but if you think that someone who is justifiably angry enough to use language of this nature is automatically disqualified from speaking the truth then all I can say is good luck to you.

I understand both perspectives here, but it will probably make more sense for me to address Dylan's remarks first.

While working my way through school; I did a lot of blue-collar/manual labour jobs. So I was around a lot of (mostly) males for whom it was "f___" this, and "f___" that all day long. So I became desensitized to such language. But more than that; it's just a part of my basic make-up that I don't allow style (or lack of it) to deter me from substance.

On the other hand; Debsyl doesn't need to apologize for feeling/being offended, especially since we are dealing with gratuitous vulgarity. This isn't some news clip, where the profanity of others gets included/recorded, because it's impossible to separate it from the newsworthy material around it.

That's not the case here. Here we just have someone indulging in profanity, with the excuse being "outrage". Sorry, but that's not good enough.

It's obvious to regular readers and Members of the Community that when it comes to "outrage", I don't take a back-seat to anyone (lol). But you will never see/hear any gratuitous vulgarity with anything I distribute off-site -- with one exception. It was impossible for me to resist the urge to refer to Benjamin Shalom Bernanke as "B.S. Bernanke", because of the delightful (and so well-earned) double-entendre.

On site (i.e. on the Forum); I allow myself one vulgarity: the non-abbreviated form of "B.S.". Totally irrespective of what I would like (or not like) to do; this is not about me (selfishly) indulging myself. Rather, it's ALWAYS about: what is the most-effective way to communicate the message?

Here, anyone bothering to put time-and-effort into trying to spread "truth" (in a world of lies) needs to always be focused on that question -- or they end up just 'spitting into the wind'. And when it comes to being "most effective"; any shock-value in the message must be balanced with putting that message in a form to which (potentially) large numbers of people will be receptive.

This is obviously a "lesson" which I have had to learn myself. Lol! When I first started out (and before I learned to be professional in my writing), I was just a shoot-from-the-lip blogger from Lol!

But I wanted to reach large numbers of people, so from Day 1 here at BBC, I've sought to learn to make my own Message more palatable to larger numbers of people. I think if people were to go back through our archives, and pluck out a few articles from the beginning of each year, you would see a steady progression.

Every year, I eliminated more of the bad stylistic habits in my writing, and subtly altered my tone (and the vocabulary I used/use), in order to make my writing more professional in appearance -- which translates into being (potentially) more accessible to larger numbers of people.

With this clip; unless the "target audience" was only males under 25, and blue-collar workers, gratuitous profanity like this will alienate people more than it will "motivate" them with pseudo-outrage. Vulgarity is a refuge, for people who lack the vocabulary to express feelings/ideas in complete thoughts.

Worse, presumably everyone in the alternative media is primarily trying to attract people with a generally higher level of intelligence. This isn't because the Blue Collar crowd doesn't deserve to know the Truth (and they certainly need to learn it). Rather, it's because only the tiniest fraction of the low-intellect majorities in our societies make ANY EFFORT to become informed.

The guy making this clip may have wanted to reach large numbers of beer-swilling "Average Joes" with his message. The problem is that almost none of that demographic would ever tune-in to a clip talking about "the Ebola hoax". The only thing which the knuckle-dragging majority ever get excited about are things like "gun control" or (south of the Border) "illegal aliens" -- and some of the other really low-brow stuff you see at sites like Infowars.

It was simply poor journalism for this person to have inserted all that gratuitous profanity, presumably indicating that he hasn't been doing stuff like this very long.

P.S. As for the substance itself; I found it persuasive, but not as "conclusive" as this guy tries to make it out to be. Again, I consider this self-defeating. Over-stating one's case is one of the fastest ways to turn-off viewers (apart from gratuitous profanity - lol).

...One point you have consistently discounted in the past is the idea that China would devalue its own US Treasury holdings by resetting the price of gold. I believe that you are failing to recognise the fact that China does not value those US Treasury holdings for any other purpose than to purchase other assets with them. When the time comes that China decides that they are essentially worthless for any other purpose, they will dump the dollar for gold, resetting both the value of the dollar and the value of gold, with respect to all other currencies. When that event occurs is unknown. Jim Willie believes it will be in months rather than years. Personally, I tend to agree with Jim on this one, as I feel the current system is very close to collapse. However, whenever it is to occur, we all need to be prepared for it.

With respect to the "purpose" of China's U.S. Treasuries holdings; it's quite clear. They are an economic SHIELD which China can use to protect itself from the (U.S.) Psychopaths. And while China buys no new Treasuries; it is still accumulating them via "currency swaps". These currency swaps have TWO purposes: they increase China's war-chest of USD holdings, while simultaneously speeding-up the transition to a new reserve currency.

With respect to "revaluing gold"; we're a long ways from anything like that happening (at least in terms of events). FIRST, the (illegal) choke-hold which the Western banksters have over all markets must be shattered in some manner. As of today; there is still no visible mechanism as to how that will happen -- other than the banksters simply self-destructing.

There are clear signs of extreme stresses in these markets. But we've seen those signs before. Until Western market hegemony is ended, all that China can control right now is the process to replace the dollar. Of course once that transition is mostly complete, at that time China would likely possess the economic clout to begin to FORCE changes in global markets and the global economy.

Western Real Estate Bubbles: History’s Greatest Wealth-Trap

My husband tried to go on Harvey Organ's website today and was unable to find it.

I came across the following

I had thought Harvey's Precious Metals blog was fairly benign, and Google has been easy to work with based on my own experience.

He must be onto something!!!!

He was on Max Keiser on Sept 27

and Greg Hunter on Sept 10, which I posted here earlier. He says "the game" ends this year!

Debsyl, this is very disturbing news, but not (unfortunately) unprecedented. This is very similar to what happened to "Big Dad", who used to put out regular clips in his YouTube page -- including many interviews of myself.

I talked to him personally about this, and having his own YouTube page blocked by Google was in response to a "request" (demand) from the Department of Homeland Security. In short; this is only one step short of CRIMINALIZING free speech, and calling people like myself "terrorists".

The Fascists are blocking people from expressing themselves in what are (supposedly) "open forums" (like YouTube). They just haven't started arresting them (yet)...

Debysl, Jim Willie is a sharp guy, and before I started doing BBC, he was one of my favorite reads. However, I became disenchanted with his work because even though he understands the dynamics here in general terms, he has a habit of saying more than he knows.

Thus the problem with a Jim Willie article/clip is that you're never really sure how much is reliable, and how much is bluster. In this case; there were several points where I considered his remarks to be overly definitive -- and thus not reliable.

By my own, off-the-cuff reckoning; my expectations were that Western real estate markets needed to fall between 50% - 70% (somewhat less in the markets that have already had a significant correction).

As for U.S. prices; after 6 years of furious pumping they have partially re-inflated that bubble (which was never close to fully deflated). Given the massive fraud that is still buried in the U.S. market; I expect that U.S. prices need to fall at least 50% (from current prices).

Okay, you know more than me about the recent American real estate situation.

To be fair, the price swing I expect is down to the absolute bottom. But the economic conditions that would have to exist before a family could buy a house on only about 3 months income (before taxes) are unfathomable.

I'm only considering the residential real estate market. I expect there would be a similar effect on commercial & industrial real estate but have no line of reasoning to support my belief.

I can't remember where, but a few years ago I read a paper that sought to estimate real estate prices going back to about 1650 in a European country (I can't remember which one).

The resulting graph (home price divided by household income, graphed against year) most closely matched a exponential distribution, 2.72^x, when you applied a statistical model to the data. Then you get a long-term range of roughly 80 - 150 % of household income with a median of 122%. This graph didn't have any values above 180% or below 70%. The low points corresponded perfectly with periods of economic difficulty, so I'd consider this graph pretty reliable.

Stats Canada reports median Canadian household gross income in 2011 (the most recent year for this data) was $68 400 Canadian dollars. That gives an upper boundary to median house prices of $102 600.

Median house prices in Canada are over $300 000. That's approaching 300%. Or, more importantly, the exponent's value is slightly over 5.5 times higher than when the ratio is 150% (the upper end of the established range).

This ratio asserted itself in the "Great Depression" , when the ratio went down to about 81%. Since then the concept of a mortgage - which joins the Latin words "mortis" & "gagus," giving the literal translation "death grip" - has allowed society to delay the day of reckoning. For the US that has nearly arrived...

The 1980 - 81 recession pushed the ratio in Canada down to about 140% - well short of the 122% equilibrium. So from this perspective the accumulated stress on society has been building for decades (sound familiar?). The ratio badly needs to go far below 70% to right itself; this implies unimaginable economic horror.

Yet another example of the ultra-wealthy at work...

Currency-Rigging (Finally) Moves Out Of The Shadows

While the majority of the Sheeple continue to scorn and ignore so-called “conspiracy nuts”; here are just some of the recent, major financial conspiracies in which the (Western) Big Banks have been caught, red-handed, and generally on frequent/numerous occasions:

1) Conspiring to rig the $500 trillion “LIBOR” debt markets

2) Conspiring to rig base metals markets (via warehouse fraud)

3) Conspiring to launder $trillions for drug cartels and “terrorist groups”

4) Conspiring to rig the gold and silver “fixes”

One factor which all of these illegal, major financial conspiracies share in common is that in each case no one has gone to jail, none of the Big Banks were prosecuted, and none of them were ever even required to acknowledge “wrong-doing”, despite the overwhelming evidence of serial crimes in the possession of authorities. Indeed, ¼ of Wall Street banksters have now openly admitted that crime is a way of life in their “occupation”...
