    Proper and relentless social media use falls under the "effective" category.

    The sum of mass Muslim immigration into Europe is a fall flag event, lol. I only lol because it's so sad and flagrant I can't think of any other way to feel.

    Social media. Just think about this...Erdogan called on his Turkish civilian supporters to take the streets and stop/slow down the coup...and before long civilians were in the streets doing just that. And they succeeded. Millennials and much of Gen X are on social media...the former in particular is MUCH more in tune with what comes through the social media pike then what is found spewed within the multi billion dollar business that is the MSM.

    He "relieved" 2745 Judges hours after the coup was started/ended. How the hell can you establish the facts needed to do this on such a large scale unless it was pre-orchestrated. Smells fishy. False flag event of some sort, I think.

    Again. Myopic. CONFIDENCE is the single biggest issue. I'm NOT saying the Saudi's dumping their treasuries WOULD (or would not) cause a crash in the treasury market. I'm saying that it COULD.

    Apparently you have a myopic view of how the system works. 400B in dumped treasuries **could** absolutely crash the system.

    "People are irrational, and do not have perfect information. They cannot see the future. Therefore, markets are naturally very volatile. With no government mechanism to regulate them, they would cause far worse than the great depression every few years. This is an ineluctable, inescapable fact. Think about it." Ok, I've thought about it. The author is moron. Apparently people in government are somehow rational and therefore must save "the market" from itself. Oh wait...no they aren't. Certainly not anymore then market participants. The author seems to believe in unicorns. Typical socialist type...all the bad things people can do are only attributed to market behavior and thrown out the window for government. His view point is highly illogical.

    I mostly agree but there is one very large detail I must deviate from you on. It's is NOT the stock market that matters this time. It is the bond market. The very nature of QE ought to signal that to you. It is a money printing operation to buy BONDS (some equities to prop stock markets up...but it's a bond buying program at it's core). If equity markets crash it's painful, but manageable. If money stops flowing into the bond market, GOVERNMENTS COLLAPSE. In this case we are talking about the sum of Europe, Japan and the USA....just to name a few. ;) Over the course of a currency collapse/helicopter money cycle equities tend to actually do OK (not great but OK). At least many of the underlying companies provide something of VALUE. Bonds on the other hand see their value evaporate (cheapened currency makes the value of said bonds drop - in the case of outright currency crisis long dated government bonds become just as worthless as the hyper inflating currency). IF central banks were to "helicopter money" because of a crash in the equity markets they would be making an ENORMOUS mistake that will lead to a bond sell off like the world has never seen (in the sense that the world economy is so tied together the SCALE has never been seen) and would PRECIPITATE hyperinflation instead of "just" a large scale devaluation.

    Agreed. The real reason for QE and QE-like programs is that in this debt based system MORE debt is required to pay EXISTING debt. You know this already, I'm quite sure. In this debt-based system deflation derails the banks and government as their profits and ability to spend are reduced. The reality is that taxing the general population is actually used as collateral posted by governments to the banking system to ensure they can keep "printing" and keep the fraudulent siphoning of wealth into the hands of the politically connected banks/corporations/individuals. The fact that "helicopter" money is actually being verbalized for huge economies like Japan and the USA by certain "high ups" tells you that the ENTIRE system is on it's last legs and the hyperinflation (at least the enormous devaluation) of currency is DESIRED. "They" are hinting to us in plain view that this is the 9th inning of this sham and that the reset of the system is coming MUCH sooner then later.

    American, Canadian and British stocks have held up fine...have you looked at all the stock markets of Europe, Japan and the rest of the world? HORRENDOUS performances in the last year or so, specifically from the New Year on...and that's with a sizeable bounce up in the last 1-2 weeks.

    See post 25. Yes, water, food, shelter and protection (guns) all rank above gold in ANY scenario. But to think that having money will not help you acquire these things is the most asinine thing I've ever heard.

    This is largely incorrect (pertaining to gold). even in a SHTF scenario there are still people who produce SURPLUS and are willing to sell surplus to acquire other materials they want/need. You really think a producing farmer won't take gold/silver in a trade for their produce? If you think that you're ignoring the sum of all human history.

    agreed... 5-20% allocation to physical PM's as the corner stone of your money/currency allocation is prudent.
