- 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.

The Nazis. This truly is rich. I guess this is finally going to force me to get a post up that I have promised before. Iâ€™ll make sure it gets up by the end of the year. Youâ€™ll get a very clear appreciation of my Nazi remark and how completely ignorant,… Read full post »
Quite frankly, I could care less who people vote for. Iâ€™m not voting for Obama or any other corporate-manufactured puppet. But I find this repulsive and representative of how capitalism trumps democracy almost without exception. How capitalism oftentimes literally terrorizes democracy in the proces… Read full post »
Looks like Venetians have joined Quebec in their desire for independence from the state. I wonder how many people in the United States would support independence from Washington? Haha â€“ A world without Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, Eric Cantor, John Boehner and Harry Reid? Oh, come on.… Read full post »
Smaller title print on the cover - Major markets likely to see the biggest gains: Houston, Phoenix, Austin, Denver, San Jose.
The dumbed-down corporate state at its finest. This reminds me of the movie Contact, which by the way is an awesome movie, where S.R. Hadden remarks, â€œThe first rule in government spending - why build one when you can have two at twice the price?â€. The primary intent of any bureaucrac… Read full post »
In the chart above, the blue data point is an intraday look at the S&P 500 index. Red is a composite index of European sovereign debt. The blue and red lines are linear regression lines of the respective indices. Notice any similarities? When the coast is clear… Read full post »
How about a dose of reality to offset governmentâ€™s mockery of employment. Michigan personal income has dropped 27% since 1999 and 11% since Obama took office. Similarly dreary numbers are shared by most states.
At this rate, Obamaâ€™s plan of having us all work for minimum wage will b… Read full post »
From the Household Survey used to calculate the unemployment rate - â€œTotal employment rose by 873,000 in September, following 3 months of little change.â€ (That was the highest jump in nearly 30 years according to MarketWatch.

Of course, we all understand this isnâ€™t some revelation. The only way idiots, con men, liars, thieves, looters, sociopaths, predators and the like can dominate politics in any society is through exercising control to subvert dissent, subvert open debate, subvert superior solutions, subvert ch… Read full post »
That is, to watch this.
â€œGood honest hard-workin people -- white collar, blue collar -- doesn't matter what color shirt you have on. Good honest hard-workin people continue -- these are people of modest means -- continue to elect these rich c*cksuckers who don't give a f*ck about them… Read full post »
Now be sure to watch the presidential debate tomorrow night. One held by our fascist corporate masters. The rules of the debate were already negotiated in secret by the Democrats and Republicans. Just like everything else done in secret in our nation. So, that neither candidat… Read full post »
Iâ€™ve got to say that I have lost a lot of respect for firms like McKinsey, Boston Consulting Group, Accenture and the like. They have become nothing more than shills for corporations.
In many regards, just as corporate executives manipulate politicians through lobby and bribery, so too do managem… Read full post »
Enjoy this exposÃ© on criminal cronyism, corruption, looting and absolutely destruction of reason, law and democracy by politicians and corporations acting in secret to rig the game against YOU.

I think most people will really appreciate how incredibly disturbing this coming Bill Moyersâ€™ documentary is going to be regarding crypto-fascism.

This is very, very serious and should not be taken as simply political rancor. If someone in Congress actually stands up to enforce the rule of law, these Whitehouse games of kingship are well outside of the spirit of the Constitution.

This sounds a lot like Wall Street. But, then that has been discussed on here numerous times. This is not a financial crisis. This is a crisis of the contradictions of deregulated capitalism coming home to roost. All industries have some degree of the dynamic discu… Read full post »
