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.

"We are free today substantially, but the day will come when our Republic will be an impossibility. It will be an impossibility because wealth will be concentrated in the hands of a few."  -- James Madison

Okay, first of all, the quote above, like many others from history, may… Read full post »

This is a stretch for me. I am posting this for what the Pope is quoted as saying in the article link below citing his resignation.  This is a very, very important issue and is consistent with what has been said countless times on here;  modern corporate capitalist society is Godless. … Read full post »

It’s been a while since I have posted anything about Colony Collapse Disorder.  I suspect there are many factors involved in this dynamic.  I would suppose the vast majority would be manmade but this clearly has not been proven across the board.  Although, it does seem obvious in… Read full post »

I found this story through John Pilger, whom I read inconsistently.  Pilger isn’t well known in the U.S. but he’s the real deal.  Pilger’s 2001 BBC documentary The New Rulers of the World is available to watch free at this link.  He has recently released a documentary titled … Read full post »

Obamacare - A Deception

This is a rather detailed look at the corporate looting of our public finances by the forced mandate of private, for-profit sickcare monopoly.  From a macro perspective, there is nothing really new from what has been discussed on here countless times.  But, it does differ in that it looks a… Read full post »


The SPY ETF isn’t exactly a derivative in the typical sense of the word.  But, it is “derived” from underlying assets.  ie, S&P 500 equities.  The SPY is one of the most popular trading vehicle in the world and is an easy vehicle to manipulate markets.&nb… Read full post »

Food Fraud At An All Time High

I would really encourage everyone to take back their power from the industrial food monopoly.   And as a part of that, I would really encourage you to consider signing up for Dr. Mercola’s daily email newsletter.   I surely can’t read them all but they always contain something… Read full post »

I originally had planned to write a voluminous post about this but I’m not going to.  Instead, I’m just going to link to a rather pointed and some might say conspiratorial perspective on the topic

I think it’s important that we all have an open mind and be willing… Read full post »

Throughout all of 2012 I wrote of many things that were happening in the economy well before they were evident by anyone on Wall Street, in politics or in the mainstream media.  I certainly use algorithms and data for my analysis but let’s be frank, I’m not exactly Albert Einstein.  Itâ… Read full post »

It's clear that current methods of anticipating earthquakes are a complete failure.  It's also clear science is discovering new data and knowledge that may prove to be useful as a forecasting mechanism in the future.  I am dubious that this current effort will be the end-all as a new method… Read full post »

It's quite obvious Obama goes shooting all of the time.  20,000 times to be exact.

This is a rehash of many older posts but I'm including much of it for understanding for new readers.  After dismantling regulations on private, for-profit capital over the last few decades, the investor class, or mostly American and British looter… Read full post »

"A person starts to live when he can live outside himself."  -- Albert Einstein

Over the last few days I watched the two-part Oprah Winfrey interviews with Lance Armstrong.  I'm sure the OWN network will replay both nights either online or on their channel or on Youtube if anyone is… Read full post »

The ECB president must be smoking something or his head is so far up his ass that it has snapped off and become permanently lost in the nether regions of excrement and asshattery.  The European bond market is not sharing his enthusiasm.  Nor are the countless millions suffering through his… Read full post »

Probably a year after Obama's first inauguration I went to listen to a handful of constitutional scholars speak.  Glenn Greenwald was one of them.   At the time I was dubious of his message.  He was still soft-pedaling to some degree.  I don’t think he was really on the… Read full post »

It seems our king believes America does not want Britain to leave the European Union.  I don't remember any public servant asking my opinion or that of any of the sovereign people of this nation that he so humbly serves.  And, I clearly don't recall the sovereign people of Britain asking… Read full post »

I just watched this new one hour documentary that ended fifteen minutes ago.  It is now available to watch online.  This brings back some old memories for me.  I wrote on my blog exactly what was going to happen to our banking system almost a year before the 2008 collapse in… Read full post »

I haven't been at a computer today so this is late.  But I wanted to get this up.  I have felt compelled to write about the topic covered in this video for many years but have refrained from doing so.  I most certainly feel very strongly that the views shared by… Read full post »

Below is a chart shown on here numerous times.  As noted when Apple was near its peak, it appeared to be in a blow off phase after rocketing out of its linear regression channel.  And that move appeared to be driven by unusual and large activity in Apple derivatives.

Nothing is more glorified in the proletariat corporate state than work.  Nothing.   I have a few really interesting posts on this topic but it'll probably be six months or a year before I put them up.

Thirty years ago there was talk of a four day work week. Heard that… Read full post »

The real story?  Seven million civilians killed or wounded as a result of three million aircraft sorties.   Sev… Read full post »

I truly do think it is highly plausible this is going to end very, very badly.   Much worse than anyone in the mainstream would dare contemplate.  As noted on here many times, before this cycle ends there could be horrific revelations about our government brought to light.  … Read full post »

Now, there are a lot of conspiratorial comments that are going to come to pass with this announcement.  The AP reports that this came about due to an audit.  And, that the gold was originally stored in New York to avoid being taken by a Soviet invasion.  That is plausible for… Read full post »

"We all know now that Al Gore is nothing but a bullshitter," said the staffer bluntly.

There is so much to say here.  Most of those comments should be directed at those who outsource their thinking to politicians and swindlers but I will refrain with just a few choice comments.  … Read full post »
