- 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.

Give any bureaucracy a mechanism of control and they will institutionalize that control and exploit it with impunity well beyond the original intent. Turn your back on that bureaucracy and they will grant themselves those same mechanisms of control and will turn public service into public contr… Read full post »
Howâ€™s that Asian century working out for you? Any chance the status quo is going to be wrong. Just a thought based on this wild idea. You may have heard of it. Itâ€™s called reality.

Soon after Obamaâ€™s first election I wrote that his appeasement to political corruption, Wall Street corruption and the like would sink this presidency. Obama didnâ€™t create this mess in our nation but he has done nothing to fix it either. Heâ€™s a toadie for corporate power and p… Read full post »
This article points out what I have been saying on here. Modern corporations are not productive. They are efficient. There is an enormous difference I will be talking about in later posts. These farms are efficient in the same way that bureaucratic Soviet Union factory farms w… Read full post »
Isnâ€™t this rich? Political idiots and their endless grabbing for more power are literally the biggest problem with our economy and our society. They are even worse than corporations because they are the enablers. Politicians and state bureaucrats are literally, and almost without… Read full post »
Central banks involved in buying equities and speculative assets is nothing new on here. We know from public disclosure this has been going on for some time. This caps a period of time that goes back a little less than two decades that central banks have become larger and larger speculato… Read full post »
"The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the people versus the banks." -- Lord Acton, 1875

â€œThis is a victory to the people of his district, this is a repudiation of amnesty,â€ said Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of the Georgia-based Tea Party Patriots, a group that opposed changes to the nationâ€™s immigration laws to deal with millions of undocumented residents living here. â€œThe peop… Read full post »
Every American owns a slave or ten. Even those on welfare. They produce our food and make the mounds of f$cking junk that we endlessly consume to keep this Ponzi Scheme going. For the people in this nation who have three houses or ten and consume magnitudes more than they coul… Read full post »
By capping the debt extraction scheme, Obama seeks to limit the defaults on student loans. Do we really know what the true intent is here? By these actions it ensures students spend much of their adult lives living under student loan debt peonage. (violence) Alternatively, if this d… Read full post »
For anyone with any kind of memory beyond the last handful of years, the airline industry is the going out of business industry sans Southwest and a few regional discount carriers. This industry has never consistently made any money.

Itâ€™s really no surprise the ECB has actually trashed cash with this weekâ€™s announcement. And, in the process, provided another bailout to the aristocracy on the backs of the poor and working class who will pay for the ECBâ€™s criminal, non-democratic arrogance.

As I have noted on here before, I actually like David Stockman. Mostly because he told Ronald Reagan his economic policy was bullshit. About the only thing I can say that I disagree with in his economic analysis is the mythical characterization of the good ole days… Read full post »
Not terribly surprising that our government classifies anything that threatens corporate control as terrorist threat. The perfect fascist marriage of corporations and the state. Endless consumerism is a form of state violence. And forcing people to continue to consume to prop up the… Read full post »
Letâ€™s take a look in greater detail at the chart shown in the post last week. Above is the ten year Treasury, the Russell 2000 and the Nasdaq banking index.

Letâ€™s be honest with ourselves. Predators certainly have always controlled hierarchy and class. And that certainly involves the political class and standing armies. It is one who has no empathy or compunctions about harming others that almost always rises to the top of any h… Read full post »
The recently cited survey of nary a single economist expecting GDP to contract any time in 2014 was released right on time. Revised GDP didn’t disappoint. It was negative as everyone has likely seen by now. Thus, once again proving that economics as taught in universities is o… Read full post »
The title of this post is the title of a Bloomberg article linked to below. I have written extensively about IBM since Buffett made an investment in the firm. As I have noted on here before, technology is generally a horrible investment. That’s why one of Buffett’s… Read full post »
The Financial Times article is titled populism but it is really nationalism. Because of how the world is divided today, populism is nationalism. People are seeking to reassert their own cultural identity, cultural values, traditions and individualism in a system of repressive… Read full post »
This is a powerful act of humanity against the money changers. Before this cycle is finished, we could easily see a global repudiation of debt when people realize money is nothing more than an illusion of control used by the state to beat people into conformity and state submission.… Read full post »
In other words, since the year the Federal Reserve was created and thus permanently enabled a criminal class of looters in this nation and in the process stole whatever was left of the rule of law and freedom.

A guaranteed living wage is a consistent theme on here. Or, something equivalent. The criminals will tell you that isn’t possible. Or they will tell you that raising wages simply means higher prices. This is outright bullshit. A small fraction of price… Read full post »
