401Ks turning to dust

Yesterday afternoon I produced a video follow-up to yesterday morning’s Idaho Liberty post The Hyperinflation Survival Guide. I share that recording here. I want you to survive, possibly even thrive in the upcoming New Economy. Fortunes are made and lost in every economic upheaval throughout history. There have been many. All were the product of greedy, selfish, even malicious people at the top. Often the uprising of slaves and peasants violently took the lives of their tormentors. That has a certain symmetry to it that serves well to warn a generation or two of would-be sociopaths. It would, in its own way be a nice punctuation mark to the end of the schemes they cooked up. Regardless of punctuation, […]

The Hyperinflation Survival Guide

Money changers carry loads of low value notes in wheelbarrows on Somalian streets –This was the title of a book published in 1989, sponsored by Harry E. Figgie, Jr, chairman and CEO of Figgie International. Concerned about the future operating environment for his company while the clear trajectory of the world’s central banksters was to print their paper currencies to death, he sent a team to study environments that recently experienced, or were currently suffering through exactly that. He shared what they found in Bolivia, Brazil and Argentina in a short, succinct book, The Hyperinflation Survival Guide. While Amazon (linked) shows it as published in 2003, my hardcopy is copyright 1989. One of the more interesting findings were complete changes […]

The Veezuh business model

A funny thing happened to me while researching a possible upgrade to my wire-feed welder. I am very happy with the Hobart I bought a few years ago, except when I work with thicker steel … as it turns out, quite a bit of my metal work is with heavier metal. In those cases what is called the “duty cycle” is a problem. For every one minute of welding, my machine needs five or ten minutes to cool down. I found that advances in electronics has reached into wire-feed welder design. Now for about the price of the old, solid, reliable light-duty, but heavy weight transformer-based welder I can have an inverter-based welder with close to 100% duty cycle on […]

The future of transportation

As THEY continue destruction of our lovely world, we have few intelligent choices before us. Of course we could hang our expectations on the hook that what has always been the way of the world will continue to be so. That one only works properly for those whose views span centuries and aren’t limited to the tales published by the victors. Suffice to say that is not common. All of the world’s interlinked fiat currencies are turning to dust. Even less reliable and more controlled e-currencies are waiting in the wings to be trotted out when the masses are deemed ready to accept the change. Food, energy, hardware, and more are about to be nearly unobtainable. On to the […]

State of the Planet

In the video I posted July 30th, I promised that links to much of my source material would be found here. I am doing that now. In nearly every case I have put details and links in my prior posts, so I am taking a shortcut with that as you will see. I am greatly impressed that the creators of The Georgia Guidestones used one of their Directed Energy Weapons to take down their edifice. Nobody else could have done it. The real question we cannot answer quite yet is WHY? As with all they do, it is not in our best interest. They are not doing us any favors. The Food Plant Fires is another story I covered with […]

Doctor Copper issues warning

Clever and/or knowledgeable economists (aka: those who understand from the Austrian school rather than the Kensian school of voodoo economics) often call copper prices “Doctor Copper”. Copper is so widely used in construction and fabrication that orders for copper fall just before the rest of the economy falls. Your first lesson in Austrian Economics is that supply and demand determine prices. Thus a price plummet in copper is a clear indicator that the rest of the economy will be right behind as if attached to the sinking ship with an unbreakable anchor chain. Hang onto your hats … Put your seat and tray in the upright position … Here we go … […]

We are entering those Hard Times I’ve been warning about

I know, I know, I have been warning about economic collapse for a long, long time without you ever having your personal economy die. The owners of all the money in the world have managed to keep their illusion alive longer than I or many other quite expert analysts thought possible. In that time they have also managed to corral nearly all of the land and assets on Earth. Nice for them. Even they knew this illusion would collapse, in fact they are banking on it. As several of their top-tier mouthpieces have publicly pronounced, “You will own nothing, and you will be happy”. This is the world Aldous Huxley described in his 1932 novel Brave New World.

That Sinking Feeling

James Howard Kunstler wrote the essay below. I republish completely here on safe ground as you will quite likely decide you too like his writing, want to see some of the numerous comments to the essay, and will be interested in the books he has written. I made it easy for you to follow the links to the areas that interest you… including the Amazon James Howard Kunstler author page with all of his books new, used and electronic. I suggest you may buy them more directly from him to cut out the A-monster, but we don’t make much difference to them either way. I found this essay to express so much of what is churning and burning in […]

Mises Institute videos for beginners

Mises was founded to promote and educate about real economics, also known as Austrian Economics. Completely unlike the voodoo sold to the masses in order that the grand theft can be hidden, Austrian Economics is actually easy to understand, helps make sense out of economies, fits with our human behavior experiences and (horror of horrors) exposes the fraudulent banksters and political prostitutes. In a series of videos Mises.org breaks the fundamentals down into comprehensible bite-sized pieces for kids and adults. They are available for free to watch or download for later viewing at the two pages linked below. Economics for Beginners What Has Government Done to Our Money? […]

economics, money, inflation – videos

The economy is going to hit you HARD … SOON. In these video clips, and yesterday’s post image collection: economics, money, inflation, banksters, I offer supporting evidence, proofs, visual examples and historical precedents. The global economic collapse is unavoidable. The historical precedence and replica we are in cannot be rationalized away. However, you can do some things TODAY that will reduce your pain tomorrow. Understand what is going on, and what to do about it now. My toolset and skillset forced me to break the video into two parts. I cannot justify upgrading my video recorder for the little bits I do. Obviously PART 1 on the left should be watched before PART 2 below. I produced these because […]

Farming Insider Warns The Coming Food Shortages Are Going To Be Far Worse Than We’re Being Told

by Tyler Durden Authored by Michael Snyder via TheMostImportantNews.com, The information that I am about to share with you is extremely alarming, but I have always endeavored to never sugarcoat things for my readers. Right now, there are shortages of certain items in grocery stores across the United States, and food supplies have gotten very tight all over the globe. I have repeatedly warned that this is just the beginning, but I didn’t realize how dire things have already gotten until I received an email from a farming insider that I have corresponded with over the years. I asked him if I could publicly share some of the information that he was sharing with me, and he said that […]
