Seven devastating, inescapable economic facts for America. (NaturalNews) The stock market appears to be doing better and some companies are hiring again. Meanwhile, home prices have risen somewhat, banks are beginning to lend again and the jobless rate is the lowest it has been in about five years. Things are finally looking up - right? Um, not so much. On the outside, the U.S. economy appears to be recovering from dramatic lows just a few years ago, when the country was navigating through one of its worst financial crises in history.

The United States is rapidly becoming the very first "post-industrial" nation on the globe. All great economic empires eventually become fat and lazy and squander the great wealth that their forefathers have left them, but the pace at which America is accomplishing this is absolutely amazing. It was America that was at the forefront of the industrial revolution.

It was America that showed the world how to mass produce everything from automobiles to televisions to airplanes. It was the great American manufacturing base that crushed Germany and Japan in World War II. But now we are witnessing the deindustrialization of America. Tens of thousands of factories have left the United States in the past decade alone. Millions upon millions of manufacturing jobs have been lost in the same time period. Any great nation throughout history has been great at making things. So what happens when the debt bubble pops? For people like that, take this article and print it out and hand it to them. Economic history: When did globalisation start?

“GLOBALISATION” has become the buzzword of the last two decades. The sudden increase in the exchange of knowledge, trade and capital around the world, driven by technological innovation, from the internet to shipping containers, thrust the term into the limelight. Some see globalisation as a good thing. According to Amartya Sen, a Nobel-Prize winning economist, globalisation “has enriched the world scientifically and culturally, and benefited many people economically as well”. The United Nations has even predicted that the forces of globalisation may have the power to eradicate poverty in the 21st century. Others disagree. However, economic historians reckon the question of whether the benefits of globalisation outweigh the downsides is more complicated than this. Early economists would certainly have been familiar with the general concept that markets and people around the world were becoming more integrated over time. Globalisation has not always been a one-way process.

Alvey, J. 40 Statistics Of The U.S. Economy As A Result Of Sedition & Treason By The NWO Cabal aka; Rothschild’s Banking Syndicate.

Inverted totalitarianism is a term coined by political philosopher Sheldon Wolin in 2003 to describe the emerging form of government of the United States. Wolin analysed the United States as increasingly turning into a managed democracy (a concept which has similarities to illiberal democracy).

Wolin uses the term "inverted totalitarianism" to draw attention to the totalitarian aspects of the United States governmental system while emphasizing differences between it and proper totalitarian regimes such as Nazi Germany and the Stalinist Soviet Union. Inverted totalitarianism and managed democracy[edit] Wolin argues that the United States has increasingly adopted totalitarian tendencies as a result of transformations undergone during the military mobilization required to fight the Axis powers in the 1940s, and the subsequent campaign to contain the Soviet Union during the Cold War, and more recently, after 9/11, the war on terror campaign.[2] Inverted totalitarianism reverses things.

Global Economy. Is the price of copper trying to tell us something? Traditionally, "Dr. Copper" has been a very accurate indicator of where the global economy is heading next. For example, back in 2008 the price of copper dropped from nearly $4.00 to under $1.50 in just a matter of months. And now it appears that another big decline in the price of copper is starting to happen. So far this year, the price of copper has dropped from a high of $3.40 back in January to a price of $2.95 as I write this article, and many analysts are warning that this is just the beginning. By itself, this should be quite alarming to investors, but as you will see below there are a whole host of other signs that a stock market crash may be rapidly approaching. (Read More....)

Mass Unemployment Was Behind Hitler’s Unlikely Rise To Power People who have seen too many ww2-era documentaries and archival Nazi propaganda footage might believe that Mr. funny-mustache was always popular in Germany.

Unfortunately, their version of history is lacking in facts. Prior to the severe unemployment crisis in early-1930 Germany, he and his ideologies did not have mainstream acceptance. While Nazism gained some respectability in Germany because of the onerous conditions imposed by the Versailles treaty- it never became mainstream till the early 1930s. It has to do with loss of public faith in the established “elites”. From the end of ww1 to the rise of Mr. funny-mustache, various combinations of the old “elites” had tried to fix the system and keep it afloat- often with disastrous consequences. The straw that broke the camels back was the massive increase in unemployment in the early 1930s. Death_and_Taxes. » NSA to Control the Stock Market Alex Jones. Spy agency can easily manipulate the market through latest surveillance hub Kit Daniels Infowars.com May 7, 2014 An upcoming surveillance hub monitoring all investment transactions in real-time will allow the National Security Agency unparalleled ability to manipulate the stock market.

Through the use of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA)’s latest database, which keeps investor data in the same centralized location, the NSA could easily capture private, financial data on targeted investors and even influence the stock market as a whole. And it appears that the dragnet database, called the Comprehensive Automated Risk Data System (CARDS), was designed with such vulnerabilities in mind. He also added that even knowing something as simple as how many individual investors own certain securities could be very, very valuable to select interests. Indeed, three traders have already filed a lawsuit against CME Group Inc. for selling sensitive data to high frequency traders.

US sells final GM stake loses $10.5 billion from automaker bailout. General Motors, on life support from the Treasury Department since 2008, is finally free of government ownership -- and it only cost taxpayers $10.5 billion. Earlier today, the Treasury announced it sold the remaining shares in GM for a total of $9.2 billion. The Treasury, which began loaning GM money from the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) in December 2008, eventually poured $49.5 billion into the failing automaker by the time it declared bankruptcy in June 2009. At that time, the U.S. assumed a 61 percent stake in the world's largest automaker and declared a series of restrictions, including caps on executive pay. All told, the Treasury recovered $39 billion of the total $49.5 billion outlaid to GM.

The Treasury still owns 64 percent of Ally Financial, GM's lending bank formerly known as GMAC that was also bailed out with $17.2 billion. Even with GM's IPO in November 2010, the automaker's stock price didn't crest above its original $33 price until May of this year. "The U.S. Economics. Economie. Monopolies. L'Empire Rockefeller.

Alas, President Kennedy got wind of this diabolical plan and vetoed it to the utter dismay of the military and the banks that supported their war-mongering efforts. In the end, this and Kennedy's pending legislation to end the Federal Reserve's criminal monetary enslavement of the United States, led to his assassination.

This marked a monumental turning point that accelerated America's spiral towards further corporate banker-controlled government. During the 38 year period from 1933 to 1971, the price of gold remained stable and fixed at $35 per ounce. The last 40 years, since the closing of the gold window, gold has risen as high as $1,900 per ounce - a 5,400% rise against the U.S. dollar. The truth is gold is not going up in value, it's the dollar's purchasing power that has suffered a calamitous collapse since 1973. What the massive amounts of money-printing serves to do is create bubble economies, which rise to stratospheric heights, then crash even faster.

Federal prosecutors are nearing criminal charges against some of the world’s biggest banks, according to lawyers briefed on the matter, a development that could produce the first guilty plea from a major bank in more than two decades.

In doing so, prosecutors are confronting the popular belief that Wall Street institutions have grown so important to the economy that they cannot be charged. A lack of criminal prosecutions of banks and their leaders fueled a public outcry over the perception that Wall Street giants are “too big to jail.” Addressing those concerns, prosecutors in Washington and New York have met with regulators about how to criminally punish banks without putting them out of business and damaging the economy, interviews with lawyers and records reviewed by The New York Times show.

Mr. Mr. Mr. A spokesman for Mr. Bitcloud developers plan to decentralise internet. 23 January 2014Last updated at 13:29 GMT Can the Bitcoin network provide a model for a whole new internet? An ambitious project has been launched that the developers hope could one day replace the current internet. Bitcloud aims to harness the same methods used to mine Bitcoins, to provide services currently controlled by internet service providers (ISPs) and corporations. Individuals would perform tasks such as storing, routing and providing bandwidth, in return for payment. The founders are searching for developers for the project. "We will start by decentralising the current internet, and then we can create a new internet to replace it," they said. Just as Bitcoin miners provide computing power and are rewarded for solving complex mathematical equations with the virtual currency, so individual net users would be rewarded based on how much bandwidth they contribute to the Bitcloud network.

A currency known as Cloudcoins is proposed to underpin the network. 'Much to do' New York Regulators Turn Focus to Bitcoin. BitCoin. What is Bitcoin? - We Use Coins. Bitcoin. New? Start here! Bitcoin.

Decentralized cryptocurrency Bitcoin (₿) is a cryptocurrency, a form of electronic cash. It is a decentralized digital currency without a central bank or single administrator that can be sent from user-to-user on the peer-to-peer bitcoin network without the need for intermediaries.[7] Bitcoin has been criticized for its use in illegal transactions, its high electricity consumption, price volatility, thefts from exchanges, and the possibility that bitcoin is an economic bubble.[13] Bitcoin has also been used as an investment, although several regulatory agencies have issued investor alerts about bitcoin.[14] History Creation The domain name "bitcoin.org" was registered on 18 August 2008.[15] In November 2008, a link to a paper authored by Satoshi Nakamoto titled Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System[5] was posted to a cryptography mailing list.

Bitcoin. Bitcoin takes off in Berlin. BERLIN -- If you visit a bar, cafe or restaurant off the beaten tourist path in Germany's capital city, it's usually best not to count on your credit card. Business owners in Berlin offer various explanations as to why they accept cash only: Some cite fees as the problem, others worry about fraud, and a few surprisingly honest souls admit they would simply rather not be taxed.

But if you visit Room 77 in the district of Kreuzberg for a meal and some live music, you don't need cash or a credit card. In fact, you don't even need euros -- if you own Bitcoin, that is. "I believe in honest money -- gold, silver and Bitcoin," reads a sign behind Joerg Platzer's bar.
