Reasoned, Relevant And Often Contrarian Commentary On Economics


November 07
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.

And, just a reminder that the pathological military-industrial complex spinmeisters and their conflicts of interest urged America to bomb Syria.

This is why we must live by a rule of law rather than a self-appointed pathological ruling class t… Read full post »

Another reason to hate lawyers – they are destroying American society.  I haven’t seen anyone else write of the lawyer bubble but it is a long term thesis on here.  And, it certainly is real and massive.   This author has picked up on that truth.  We could easily see 80%… Read full post »

I thought I would throw this up as a holiday post and circumvent my regular posting.  Let me first introduce this story by providing some degree of context. 

Socialization aka connection plays a very, very important, yet not understood, role in the development of a species higher order in… Read full post »

I want to put a little reminder in here.  For quite some years I have written that we could wake up some morning and see the Dow down thousands of points.  I’m sure most people believe that statement is ludicrous.   Well, but then we actually saw the flash crash.  That… Read full post »

Today is the 50th anniversary of the death of President Kennedy.  So, I thought I would post a position that isn’t very popular with many people in this nation.  That is, one must contemplate that the Kennedy assassination may not have been some substantial conspiracy of powerful forc… Read full post »

The Amazon–From Paradise To Inferno

As if destroying community and individual freedoms isn’t enough, the current economic system of terror that privatizes gains and socializes losses, free market corporate capitalism, has reached a point of literally destroying our ecology on a global scale.  Large corporations and the overprodu… Read full post »

Fukushima is a horrendous mess.  Much worse than I ever imagined it could get.  That mess has been made worse by systemic incompetence of the Japanese government and the Fukushima’s operator, TEPCO.  

While no one in the brain-dead mainstream U.S. media is talking about itRead full post »

Those are the words of the director of PopularResistance.Org in the Real News video interview link below. 

If anyone still believes poor, little ole Obama is being victimized by Republicans, as he has whined in the past, you are brainwashed to some similar degree as the German people were… Read full post »

The mirage keeps collapsing as the authentic Obama continues to be exposed.  We certainly seem in full stride of the shit hitting the fan for the plundering corporatocracy.

Wow.  Today Obama made what may be one of the biggest political faux pas I have ever seen.  Our king and neo-feudal master has spoken today about the state of Obamacare.  And as he does so, all of the mainstream media dunces nod their heads up and down as they transcribe… Read full post »

People with pre-existing conditions getting the shaft under Obamacare.  This new corporate sick care law is so brutally predatory and violent that in many ways it has actually pushed health care backwards in this nation.  That may seem impossible but it appears to be true on many levels.… Read full post »

S&P 500 Update: Fumes And Vapor


I have never actually shown the trading workbench on here but I have shared some specific data points that allow readers to get a better understanding of markets.   This is one such post. 

Above is a tick-based algorithm overlaid on the S&P for the past three plus… Read full post »

ProPublica seldom gets more than a dozen comments on an article.  This one pulled in over 300, showing the vitriol and toxicity of this topic. 

The demographics of customers for insurance companies are not likely to meet the anticipated demand for their products given the sticker shock th… Read full post »

This is an appropriate Halloween post given that evil ghouls and demons have created a frightful mess for the rest of us.  Before I get to the post, this is a good place to remind readers that I have stated for years that I expect both political parties in this nationRead full post »

I few years ago I wrote a lengthy and detailed post I planned to put up during the passing of the Scorpio zodiac of 2013.  I’m going to hold off posting it.  Depending on what happens in the future, I may yet post it sometime next year.  I have a sneaking… Read full post »

Linkfest Palooza From The Madhouse

New study finds half a million dead in Iraq.  That would equivalently be about five million Americans were a similar casualty to happen in the U.S.  Where is the U.S. mainstream media that has half a million dead Iraqi’s blood on their hands?  Of course this statistic could be in… Read full post »

Let me first say that I believe health care is a right as noted on here countless times.  As is a living wage.  As is economic determinism.   None of those exist within our current structure.  Generally because private, for-profit capital determines our socioeconomic fate in… Read full post »

Even though many may not see the connection to the topic of economics in this post, in fact, it is directly intertwined.We are beings of light (energy) and frequency.   At least as far as science perceives reality.  And our perceptions of reality are created by both.  This documenRead full post »

Today, 29 out of 30 Dow stocks are underperforming the Nasdaq, which is having a large up day.  Or, it is at the time I am typing this.  Of those 29 Dow stocks, 21 are negative.  Not exactly a normal day.  Especially because massive speculation in the Nasdaq is a sign… Read full post »

Throughout the years when I have noted that we are in the midst of a collapse, I have had countless comments from people who tell me that I am being dramatic.   In some way, they all support a system which victimizes themselves and their fellow man.  And they turn a blind… Read full post »

This type of violent absurdity is an everyday occurrence in the merciless, compassionless, Godless corporate state.   Do any of these ignorant dumbasses know how to exercise intelligent judgment?  What kind of person makes this arrest?  A Godless, ignorant, dumbed-down horse or do… Read full post »

One some level Obama would have been more lucky to have the Tea Party default.  It would have deflected from the greater truth of the dying days of the corporate state.

There are many points to this story that are so disturbing on such a fundamental human level.  I want to highlight this story for one simple reason.  This type of covert state violence occurs on a daily basis.   The number of lives destroyed by the state’s covert violence is… Read full post »

This is a topic discussed ad nauseam on here.  I hear all kinds of bullsh$t about why this is bad policy or that raising wages will simply raise the cost of goods and, thus, won’t work.  This is utter bullsh$t.  The Internet is both good and bad.  Bad because people can… Read full post »
