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.

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 »

Monica Lewinsky Speaks Out

The sensationalism and dumbed-down coverage of mindless drivel by the mainstream media in this nation is beyond disgusting.  What does it say about our nation that the national news headlines are about a dirty old man, Donald Sterling, and a gold-digging prostitute who betrayed him?  &… Read full post »

America has been in a depression for nearly forty years as noted on here countless times.   While most Republican corporatists and faux Democratic intelligentsia would laugh at any such characterization, most working class people and seekers of truth who were at least of childhood age in th… Read full post »

Just a few timely remarks about GDP.   Some how the bureaucrats who pull the levers on this system were very surprised that preliminary GDP was just one tenth of one percent.  (It looks like first quarter’s revised final GDP’s  number will likely be negative.)   … Read full post »

There have been a small list of Wall Street darlings that I have written about as poster children for the crisis yet to come.   As noted on here ad nauseam, the stock market represents absolutely no semblance of reality or value.  It has become nothing more than a bubble of criminal… Read full post »

What do you call a salary of $200 million that creates absolutely no wealth for society but instead actually consumes wealth?  This is not a personalized attack on anyone’s worthiness but on the socially-acceptable behavior based on acts of class-based state violence.  S… Read full post »

I want to first make a note of a new revelation that is worth watching.  Americans are recognizing that not only does the emperor have no clothes, he is not to be feared.  The CIA is a criminal, anti-democratic state institution whose only mission is perpetuation of state violence.  It… Read full post »

Yah think? 

So, if most Americans believe Obama regularly lies, is it pathological or are 81% of Americans suffering from mass delusions?

Or, are the perceptions of endless lying due to massive state secrecy that hides the incompetence and criminal behavior of a rogue political class?  O… Read full post »

Most people don’t seem to appreciate the significance of the times we are living through.    Contrarily, the analysis on here over the last nine years has been well ahead of the curve and very unique.   There aren’t too many people involved in finance and economic… Read full post »

Vladimir, He Wrote Me A Letter

Interesting markets today, eh?   April has the potential to be a very, very interesting month.  Not just for assets either.   We could be close to what Robert Prechter terms as the “oh shit†moment. (My slang characterization.)  ie, When Wall Street bag holders wake… Read full post »

As a follow up to my last post, I want to highlight some of the incredible state violence that Putin and the Russian state perpetuates.  State violence that counters the growing propagandized Putin cult of personality.   State violence that has, rather than freeing men from the rule of… Read full post »

I’m going to put this up in two pieces because it is rather lengthy.  This first post is focused on providing some background, context and greater awareness of state violence today.  The next post is Anti-Americanism’s False Savior:  Putin the Pathological.

I find it highly implausible that the CIA is some rogue agency as it is being characterized by the state and by the mainstream state press.   I suspect this is simply more plausible deniability of the same kind used to shield Reagan from criminal prosecution in the highly illegal Iran-Contr… Read full post »

Ya think?  First off, 60 Minutes starts this video by stating  that stock ownership is at record lows.  This is absolutely false.   The U.S. stock market ownership remains very near record highs.   This false meme is used by propagandists to perpetuate a meme that t… Read full post »

What a surprise.   I have talked about this in the past.  The United States corporate capitalist system, as a class-based system of oppression, was substantially threatened by Mandela.  Just as the British class-based capitalist system was substantially threatened by Gandhi. … Read full post »

I’m going to tie all of this together in detail when I get my series of posts finished.  But until then, there are major issues coming to pass that I have forecasted years ago.   China is the biggest turd in the pool so these issues are worthy of timely discussion because… Read full post »

Earlier this week I highlighted Chipotle’s enlightened video series.  Today, let’s look at Chipotle’s stock.   The company’s stock is a favorite of the financial fraudsters.   In the last five years the company has grown revenue 100%.   Not bad.  Not su… Read full post »

I have mentioned Sean on here in the past.  I have followed his work for a long time and am a big fan of his efforts at educating people.  I would encourage everyone to participate in this series to become more educated and empowered about your health.

The industrial food monopoly is one of the largest employers in our nation.  From Wal-mart, Target, Kroger and other retailing behemoths who sell thousands upon thousands of SKUs of processized, chemicalized, nutrient-void, industrial food goo to the logistics companies, transportation companies… Read full post »

It was just a few years ago that China was considered invincible by every single political, economic and financial talking head who could grab a microphone.  Resisting that type of meritless, dumbed-down groupthink was and remains an daunting task.  It is pervasive in a world where truth ha… Read full post »

Is this even constitutional?  Is anything the state does, consistent with natural human rights?   Or is the state on a never-ending mission to destroy our natural rights?  The corporate state’s pathological violence gets more dystopian with each and every revelation.  … Read full post »

When Prime Minister Abe announced the force of the state was going to be unleashed in his personal war on deflation,  I knew the unintended consequences would result in more human suffering once again.  This isn’t rocket science.   The political class only exist for only one… Read full post »
