Reasoned, Relevant And Often Contrarian Commentary On Economics


October 24
I'm an electrical engineer and mathematician by training. My career has spanned diverse areas of expertise from being part of a team which designed the world's most powerful computers to corporate consulting around business transformation and information-based solutions to being a corporate sales and marketing executive in the information technology and business consulting space. I’ve led teams responsible for innovative and transformative solutions and been part of teams that helped set strategy for many of America's greatest companies. Two of my interests are econometrics, democratic finance and quantitative - qualitative analysis. Over the years I have developed risk-based models and trading systems meant to identify significant investment opportunities and periods of extreme risk. My blog is an outlet for another of my passions, writing. I generally consider myself a contrarian. Therefore, many of my rantings are meant to encourage people to question what they believe to be true. Terms of Use & Disclaimer: First off, I don't take anything on here too seriously and you shouldn't either. These are simply sardonic rantings of Bill, my alter ego, often meant to agitate for peaceful & nonviolent reform. This web site reflects the views of its authors.

I watched this documentary on PBS last night.  It is now available online.  It is very profound and is a must watch.  It’s nearly impossible to contrive the reality of who Vladimir Putin is as reported by Frontline.   It would take a conspiracy of unimaginable proportio… Read full post »

A Calvin Fairy Tale From Beppe Grillo

I’m still thinking about how to structure my next post.  I’ve realized it could become a monster and I actually have to think about how to organize it rather than just a stream of conscious keyboard hacking effort.  In the mean time, Grillo’s remarks tie directly into my next post.… Read full post »

“What is the chief end of man?--to get rich. In what way?--dishonestly if we can; honestly if we must. Who is God, the one only and true? Money is God. Gold and Greenbacks and Stock--father, son, and the ghost of same--three persons in one; these are the true and only God,Read full post »


I’m continuing the interruption of my regular posts because of the Russian ruble crisis.  We may be witnessing the most important event in the global economy in the last three or four decades.   Far more important than 2008.  We don’t yet see the importance of… Read full post »

This video and story are worthy of another unexpected post.  Do we now know why Homeland Security (the NSA) and the CIA are at this very moment attempting to purge evidence of the state’s criminal behavior as linked to a handful of posts ago?   Was the imminent release of this CI… Read full post »

I was planning only one more post this month, but given the incredibly profound dynamics unfolding around long-time themes on here, I thought I would highlight some of them in an interim post.   Below is a set of related, unrelated and inter-related incoherent ramblings on a multitude of ti… Read full post »

I want to make a few quick comments about my last post before diving into this one.  Russia’s economy is imploding.  Their financial system is in massive crisis, the ruble is in crisis against the dollar and the fall in the value of oil is going to have a massively profound… Read full post »

Following the 2008 collapse I mocked the G20 meetings as clueless and useless.  And I wrote that this faux show of unity would eventually devolve into these same predators turning against each other.   When the predators of the state have no one left to prey upon, they will begin preyi… Read full post »

I wanted to put up a post on the comparative lunacy that is so common in  modern corporate capitalist society.   There is generally little truth in any mainstream position.  Most everything has been corrupted by money, power, authority, corporations, politicians, political parties… Read full post »

The last time I wrote on here that Apple’s stock price was closing in on the value of all stocks in Russia was March of 2012.  Here we go again.   This time Apple has actually surpassed the value of all Russian stocks.  Apple employs 70,000 people and makes what are essentially… Read full post »

There are a lot of stories on there about why oil has been cratering.  Most are just that.  Stories.  The reality is oil was only ever greater than $100 a barrel because of manipulation in the first place.  Mass manipulation as the amount of leverage, contracts and derivatives in… Read full post »

Once again, the movement against state violence is a global phenomena and it is very, very real.  A long time theme on here is that this cycle could be coined the end of big.  High on that list is big, centrally-planned state violence that benefits a chosen few state actors who… Read full post »

There are many examples of evil’s manifestation in the world today.  Empire, the forced use (worship) of money to survive,  Islamofascism, political parties, the global military-industrial complex, standing armies,  state-induced fear mongering in the form of nationalism, corporate c… Read full post »

Watching television ads leading up to national elections is always a treat.  Divisiveness, hate and lies are the norm from both parties.  But, then the only way political parties can actually exist is by dividing humanity with small, petty issues rather than a loving state of uniting people… Read full post »

Linkfest Palooza

There is absolutely no way Hillary Clinton is ever going to win the presidency any more than Jeb Bush is.  The American people are sick of political family royalty.  They often haven’t figured out what the right answer is but they definitely know what the answer isn’t.   It is… Read full post »

The FBI, CIA And The Nazis

This certainly is far from new news.  It has graced these pages many times.  FOIA releases show how instrumental Nazis were in post WWII American policy and the founding principles of the CIA.  What is new is that this is finally gracing the pages of the New York Times, a newspaperRead full post »

A very interesting presentation.  Gunderson discusses some new data points I was unaware of.  That is, just by sheer coincidence, at least as we know it, Japanese civilization was spared a complete holocaust with the recent earthquake and Fukushima disaster.   The nation was dange… Read full post »

"The Company believes it will incur substantial losses for the foreseeable future... the rate at which such losses will be incurred will increase significantly."

Not to say I told you so, but I told you so.  Amazon’s impending doom has graced this blog many times including detailed… Read full post »

Let me first take a few paragraphs to comment about the markets in general.  One of the long-time themes on here is that we would eventually see Wall Street trade counterparties out of financial markets and market “professionals†will be left batting massively overvalued shares back and fort… Read full post »

It really doesn’t matter who, what, where, why, this system is finished.  One of the most intriguing forms of propaganda I see today from those who have stolen everything is that you can’t make society wealthy by taking from those who have achieved individual wealth.  Hahaha.&nb… Read full post »

Netflix Falls $120 After Hours

Ignorance drives all of our mainstream reality anymore.  Truly.  (If you think the world is going to claw its way out of this without suffering the  consequences, you are smoking something stronger than crack because the entire world is run by credentialed, yet incompetent  idiotsRead full post »
