The Establishment Admits to a Second Financial Crisis

Up until very recently, there were essentially two kinds of business and economic reporting trends emanating since the 2008 Financial Crisis:  Sanguine, triumphant and motivating news in the mainstream corporate transatlantic financial press, versus pensive, probing and skeptical viewpoints in the alternative economic press.  The former was from sources tethered to the central and corporate banking sectors in Europe and North America, presenting information and sentiments meant to keep public expectations buoyant and optimistic about the state of Anglo-American economies.  The latter was from independent analysts, contrarian observers, foreign press in Eastern & Southern hemispheres and keen bloggers who knew how to dig for data, determined not to be fooled again over real economic affairs.  The former relied upon much false data emanating from government bureaus intent upon upholding confidence among consumers, in the financial markets and among foreign bondholders; the latter invested rigor into more credible metrics, monetary & political history, and fell back upon a decent track record of having called past financial crises.

Well, over very recent history, there has been a tide swell of mainstream Establishment figures – be they retired central bank & Treasury chiefs, or leading hedge fund managers – shifting into warning modes worthy of those observers otherwise considered “alarmist or fringe”, with fingers being pointed at an inevitable – possibly imminent – 2nd Global Financial Crisis.  Folks like Ben Bernanke, Henry Paulson, Timothy Geithner, and respected heads of banks and institutional investing firms such as Jamie Dimon of JP Morgan Chase and Ray Dalio of Bridgewater Associates, are waving warning flags over not a recession, but a crisis approaching, and one larger than the one a decade ago.

Why now?  Where were the reputable, cautious, gloomy financiers, bureaucrats and pundits on the CNBCs, Bloombergs & Wall Street Journals of even a year ago?  Why this collective mandate to ‘fess up’ about true macroeconomic conditions as well as the paucity of viable policy options for averting it, let alone for treating it once it hits?  What are you expected to think and do from here on in?

In this 30th episode of Money & Fear, and as always, in the show’s detailed Show Notes listed under the videos on our website, recent information disseminated by leading figures assigned to public discourse by the transatlantic business and political Establishment will be reviewed.  Some of the data will confirm what we’ve covered on this program over the past year and a half, some of it will be new, yet the fact that it’s all now attested to by past and present decision makers removes any controversies over where the national and global economies are headed, and perhaps by wider design.

    It will all be Trump’s fault and the answer with be big time Socialism, maybe even Martial Law.

  2. Sam LeMay says:

    So what are we to do? Put our money into Gold? Cash? Wonder if we could get some solutions as well.

    • Physical gold and silver are tangible money, lacking any counterparty risks. They’re also much more liquid than real estate and other hard assets.

      The key is to be aware of real trends, versus those announced in mainstream business press, which follow government & Wall Street’s leads. Ask yourself where you were in early 2007, and what you’d have done differently, if anything. We’re there again.

  3. John Phillips says:

    Good job Pye! No argument here.
    May is suggest that the assets of a bank that fails are gobbled up by other banks at pennies on the dollar…for instance mortgages on housing real estate. Other than stocks and bonds…tangible hard assets don’t go way; may drop in price, but the house and land are still there. “Buy when there is blood in the streets” and these guys are willing to fill the streets with such.

    Also, there is inflation is some asset classes…say equities and stocks, building materials and consumer goods; while salaries, select housing markets and small business are deflating. For the common Joe and Jane…this has been a depression!

    These financiers plan multigenerational agendas. They sow a field, grow it and harvest it (whatever asset class that might be)…..a great analogy for how capitalists perform in todays world. It takes about 4-7 years to grow out…then they harvest (the CRASH). When the stock market looses 1.0 trillion…the money didn’t disappear…it went into someone’s pocket. Buy it cheap, pump it up and sell it when you and I have bought into the scheme. Do you agree?

    PM’s, finely crafted steel that send lead down range with great accuracy and speed, and land are the assets I prefer. If you don’t own land…you are a slave.

    Lastly…nice tie!

  4. John Phillips says:

    AND…develop your skills matrix. Have knowledge, skills and abilities that will help you in the coming hard times. To take that from you is to take your life. Diversify!

    • Agreed on all. It’s “pump & dump” on tectonic scales, and meant for wider global transformations. Discerning what said transformations are ultimately about helps greatly in thinking deductively.

  5. P. Brooks McGinnis says:

    No More War

  6. Thanks, I really enjoy your videos. Aesthetically, you should consider changing the background while taping. The chest of drawers and the towel hanging on a peg don’t cut it, and are distracting.
