re Harvard survey finds falling wages, more part-time jobs @ 11:21

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 21:46 on September 8, 2014  

That there is typical gov’t media info. The “story” implies that the problems of today are from the 2008 meltdown. And a so called weak recovery. The trend of less work for Americans started all the way back around 1975.

By 1980 the Gov’t was blaming the United Auto worker union for the inflation or high prices from de-pegging the Dollar in ’71. The workers were only getting raises that kept up with higher prices.

Plus because we made all our own consumer products, plus Korea and Vietnam “products” plus we were producing moon landing products, and guess what???

If you were employed in manufacturing? THERE WAS AN ENOUMOUS SHORTAGE OF LABOR!!!!! You could quit your job and get another at higher pay in about a hour.

The “business man” together with gov’t help (tax incentives exchange rates) put a stop to that by outsourcing. To help businesses profit, and create more middle class people in third world nations.

All the way back in 1980 James Dines predicted a deflation in wages here because of using Indian and Chinese labor.

The Media always tells people about the results, things they already noticed. The Media will NEVER tell you what I tell you. The CAUSE. Why talk about symptoms?? Or very old news?

Appears the target for USD is 84.96 and then?? WAG

Markets Climb as World Faces Crisis

By:

John Browne

Thursday, September 4, 2014
On August 28th while the geographical area formerly known as Iraq descended further into chaos, President Obama announced to the world “We don’t have a strategy, yet.” A few days later, another brave American journalist was brutally beheaded by a slickly televised cockney-accented jihadist. Clearly things are not going well outside the bubbly confines of the S&P 500.
Last week The Wall Street Journal published an extract from Henry Kissinger’s forthcoming book, “World Order“. In it, the former Secretary of State cited Libya, ISIL, Afghanistan and “a resurgence of tensions with Russia and a relationship with China” as developments of grave concern to the United States. Kissinger went on to warn, “The concept of order that has underpinned the modern era is in crisis.”

Kissinger noted that the era between 1948 and 2000 could be considered an “amalgam of American idealism and traditional European concepts of statehood and balance of power. But vast regions of the world have never shared and only acquiesced in the Western Anglosphere concept of order. These reservations are now becoming explicit, for example, in the Ukraine crisis and the South China Sea. The order established…by the West stands at a turning point.”

In the 20th Century, the Anglosphere was unsuccessfully challenged by Germany and Russia. The first German challenge ended with the abdication of the Kaiser in 1918. But Allied negotiators failed in a crucial test and set the stage for a brutal outcome. Although Germany was left unoccupied, its citizens were saddled with a very heavy debt load. These conditions were mutually incompatible. Soon a strong man emerged in Germany to try to throw off the Anglo yolk. Similarly at the end of the Cold War, the Soviet Union never was occupied, but hadnegotiated a peace. Implicit in the voluntary dismantling of the Soviet Union was the Russian understanding that NATO would not extend its membership to the former Soviet satellite states in Eastern Europe.

But fired with the heady feeling of apparent ‘victory’, the Anglosphere attempted to ‘bend’ the agreed Cold War peace terms by extending NATO membership to the Baltic States, Hungary, Slovakia, Romania, and Poland. It was no secret that the Ukraine was next on NATO’s wish list. Such an outcome would have been very difficult for Russia to accept.

Like the Germans, the Russians are a proud and tough people. While ‘acquiescing’, to use Kissinger’s term, they resented deeply this seemingly covert aggression by the Anglosphere. Under a tough, patriotic and charismatic President Putin, Russia apparently now seeks to regain some of its lost regional sphere of influence or empire. In this very limited sense, the Putin/Hitler comparison is apt.

Amazingly, the Obama Administration failed to recognize the Crimea and the land bridge to it, as a vital Russian interest. As a result, the U.S. Administration badly bungled the diplomatic response to Russia’s annexation of the territory. Far more serious is the probability that Anglo miscalculation can force greater cooperation between Russia and China and perhaps even Russia and Germany.

In his efforts to strike back at Putin, Obama’s choice of weapons defies practical sense. The trade sanctions seem to offer little except discord among the NATO allies. It was recently revealed that Germany was forced to negotiate secretly with Russia to ensure the continuation of some 40 percent of its winter energy supplies. Sensing these divisions doubtless has increased Putin’s ambitions. Now the entire Ukraine is in his sights. Over the weekend, news reports suggested a serious escalation of the conflict, which resulted in the Ukranian government shifting to a more defensive posture as Russian forces made serious territorial gains. More concerning, Obama’s misjudgments may push Germany increasingly from the Anglosphere towards the Asian sphere of Russia and China.

At the upcoming NATO meetings it is likely that, underlying some bellicose speeches, the real politicwill dictate an overriding need to find a face-saving ‘off-ramp’ or way of accepting Russia’s territorial hegemony over its “back yard.”

In the short-term, the flow of fear-money to the U.S. likely will continue and, depending on NATO’s decision, even increase. This could help drive the U.S. dollar, equities and Treasuries to new increasingly bloated highs. Over the medium term as anti-Russian trade sanctions bite harder, likely they will deepen the looming international recession. This may inspire central banks to enact still more aggressive monetary stimulation, taking financial markets yet higher.

In light of the increasing evidence that Keynesian monetary stimulation is failing to ignite meaningful improvement in the broad economy, central banks may be tempted to create even more synthetic money. However, given the failure of past QE strategies to do much good, some central banks may try novel approaches to liquidity injection. In late August, the Council on Foreign Relations published in its Foreign Affairs magazine an astonishing article entitled,

‘Print Less But Transfer More: Why Central Banks Should Give Money Directly to the People’.

Such open signs of Keynesian desperation might magnify fears of economic recession combined with financial hyperinflation, or stagflation, and bring precious metals increasingly into play. Further, it may threaten the U.S. dollar’s Reserve status.

In short, the order that has dominated global politics for much of the past century is facing a severe test on all fronts. Unfortunately, the current leadership in Washington is woefully lacking in strategic understanding and intestinal fortitude. This is exactly the wrong combination at the wrong time. The Anglosphere’s ineptitude may even overcome the best efforts of Janet Yellen and succeed in pushing the stock market into a much needed correction.

The Silent Death Of The U.S. Dollar

To begin, I would like put forth the observation that the U.S. Government has become particularly belligerent militarily toward the rest of the world.  Anyone who thinks the U.S. is not provoking Russia and China all over the globe has their head in the sand or is incapable of looking at the facts outside of the tragically skewed propaganda coming from Washington, DC  that is being funneled through the U.S. media pipeline.

The reason the U.S. is trying to stir up global military chaos is simple, the U.S. dollar is being systematically removed from its reserve status.   The latest evidence of this is the news report yesterday that China and Argentina are going to begin trading in their respective currencies, with trade settlement in yuan – NOT dollars:   News Link.  Please note this news is not being reported by the U.S. mainstream financial media.

“Big deal,” you might think.   But also unreported over the last couple of years is that China has been quietly arranging these bi-lateral trade deals with EVERY major trading partner, including several European countries.  Recently China signed huge deals with Iran and Russia to trade energy in their respective currencies.   This IS a big deal.   China and Russia are systematically extricating their trade activities from the dollar.

Yes, the dollar has bounced considerably higher in the last couple of months.  But this is because the main components of the dollar index – the yen and the euro – have been melting into oblivion.  The yuan and ruble are not included in the standard measurement of the dollar’s value.  Russia and China don’t care about that value of their currencies in relation to the dollar,  other than the effect it has on their Treasury holdings.  But Russia and China are slowly unloading their Treasuries.   They are both accumulating physical gold hand over fist.

At the end of March the GLD trust had 820 tonnes of gold in it.  It’s down to 785 tonnes.  I bring this up because the market falsely assumes that a decline in the amount of gold held in GLD is a sign investors are selling gold.  This is not true.   Selling a GLD shares is not a trigger for the removal of gold from the GLD trust.  The ONLY way gold is removed is if one of the Approved Participant banks puts together 100,000 share baskets and exchanges them for gold bars.  Note: the banks can create shares by borrowing them.  The short interest in GLD is quite high.   Gold is being removed from GLD because the western bullion banks (JP Morgan, HSBC, Scotia, etc) are on the hook for paper claims they have printed up and dumped into the market.  Some of those claims (LMBA forwards, especially) end up in Chinese hands.   The U.S. can not default on those.

I bring this up because if you’re wondering where that gold from GLD has gone, look east to China. That gold is sitting in vaults in China, owned by the Peoples Bank of China and private investors.   China is systematically extracting as much gold as it can from the west.  China, an d Russia,  is methodically killing the dollar.   The sign posts are there to see for anyone who wants to look for them.

Watching the world go by lol Interesting chart on Yen. I was aware as well as another chartist that Gold appeared to be following Yen but didn’t look into it to that degree.just watching it go down have to run. Would be interesting to know who’s buying all those US bonds in Europe but I could take a good guess.

QUIT BASHING OBAMA

First President to preside over a cut to the credit-rating of the United States.

First President to violate the War Powers Act.

First President to be held in contempt of court for illegally obstructing oil drilling  in the Gulf of Mexico.

First President to require all Americans to purchase a product from a third party.

First President to spend a trillion dollars on “shovel-ready” jobs when there was no such thing as “shovel-ready” jobs.

First President to abrogate bankruptcy law to turn over control of companies to his union supporters.

First President to by-pass Congress and implement the Dream Act through executive fiat.

First President to actively try to bankrupt an American industry (coal).

First President to fire an inspector general of AmeriCorps for catching one of his friends in a corruption case.

First President to appoint 45 czars to replace elected officials in his office.

First President to win a Nobel Peace Prize for doing NOTHING to earn it.

First President to go on multiple “global apology tours” and concurrent “insult our friends” tours.

First President to go on over 17 lavish vacations, in addition to date nights and Wednesday evening White House parties for his friends paid for by the taxpayers.

First President to have personal servants (taxpayer funded) for his wife.

First President to keep a dog trainer on retainer for $102,000 a year at taxpayer expense.

First President to fly in a personal trainer from Chicago at least once a week at taxpayer expense.

First President to repeat the Quran and tell us the early morning call of the Azan (Islamic call to worship) is the most beautiful sound on earth.

First President to side with a foreign nation over one of the American 50 states (Mexico vs Arizona).

First President to tell the military men and women that they should pay for their own private insurance because they “volunteered to go to war and knew the consequences.”

Then he was the First President to tell the members of the military that THEY were UNPATRIOTIC for balking at the last suggestion.

It’s hard to comprehend all this guy has gotten away with.  Any other president would have been impeached!  What in God’s name is wrong with our government that they allow this guy carte blanch.  It absolutely boggles the mind!

I feel much better now.  I had been under the impression he hadn’t been doing ANYTHING!!

Not sure if I’m in the right place or not??

I’m a retired currency trader of 22 years, understanding Capital flows and how the value of a countries currency effects trading the precious metals sector has been my focus these past few years. If I’m in the correct place and those here want to make some money, well please read on.

From 2000 to 2008 Gold was a pure currency trade vs the US$, the high gold produced was US debt ceiling and S&P downgrading US debt from AAA to AA+ related….my first chart

http://tinyurl.com/lgn3hus

Now we’ve all been told about the manipulation in the gold market, I’m going to show you what is driving Golds action since Nov 2012 as gold is being traded as a currency (which it is) just as the bull run from 2000 to 2008 was all about a devalued US$ as the Index fell 50 cents from 121-71 and everything that was priced in US$ was revalued higher be it, Oil, Silver, Uranium, Wheat, Rice, Copper etc

The trade in play now is $YEN….have a L@@K at these $YEN charts vs Golds value, notice where 99/101 $YEN caps golds advance

http://tinyurl.com/qhtezw2

The next chart is a Weekly $YEN chart that shows where gold has been and IF the devaluation of $YEN continues where it will go

http://tinyurl.com/p6y9aad

Last chart shows what those that Howl at da moon regarding Gold and it being manipulated do not want YOU to see….$YEN traders as they sell yen and buy US$’s are putting on a gold sell trade at the same time, no manipulation, just a pure currency trade….notice todays trading action as $YEN weakened by almost a full cent gold retraced $22 from $1272 to $1250

http://tinyurl.com/ovcvvy8

So again I have no idea if this gold tent blog is about making money or watching the world go by???

I post at another blog which is all about making money, not whining about golds value for those that understand how to read basic charts….. no fancy Ewave, Fibs or trend lines the members are excellent and the head site guru is a great guy along with a fantastic tech support….join us and make some $$$$$$$

Feel free to drop by….Good Luck to you all!……CHEER$!

so HOME DEPOT finally admits it

Home Depot: Data breach at US and Canada stores, no evidence debit card PINs were affected

1 minute ago

(AP:NEW YORK) NEW YORK (AP) — Home Depot confirmed on Monday that its payment systems have been breached, and says the hack could affect customers who used credit and debit cards at U.S. and Canadian stores.

The largest U.S. home improvement chain says it has not found evidence that debit card PINs were compromised, and nor that online customers or shoppers at stores in Mexico are affected. The company did not say how many cards might be affected, but did say that customers will not be held responsible for fraudulent charges to their accounts.

Home Depot said it is looking into the breach and is working with outside firms, its banking partners, and the U.S. Secret Service. The Atlanta company says the investigation is focused on the months since April.

Home Depot Inc. said last week that it was working with banks and law enforcement to investigate a potential hack but had not confirmed a breach of its data.

The home improvement chain is the latest retailer to experience a data breach. Others include Target, grocer Supervalu, restaurant chain P.F. Chang’s and the thrift store operations of Goodwill. The breaches have rattled shoppers’ confidence in the security of their personal data and pushed retailers, banks and card companies to increase security by speeding the adoption of microchips in U.S. credit and debit cards.

Home Depot plans to have chip-enabled checkout terminals at all of its U.S. stores by the end of this year.

The company’s shares fell 62 cents to $90.20 in aftermarket trading.
