Money and Fear with Pye Ian

Global War on Cash and The Blockchain: A One-Two Punch for Complete Control

“Cold hard cash”.  Paper currencies and coinage have been around for centuries.  So why is there a “war” against cash, all of a sudden?  Sure, governments and the central and private banks which control them can claim that this war is meant to prevent crimes and illicit activities, but are there deeper, longer term reasons involved?  Especially considering what “money” is and how it has the capacity to so uniquely dictate human energy?  Could the aim toward complete digitization of cash involve the wanting of complete control over each individual’s economic affairs, and thereby, every person’s ultimate existence?

And how do Bitcoin, other cryptocurrencies and the blockchain in general fit into all of this?  Are, say, the simultaneous push for killing cash and introducing cryptocurrency trading via mobile phones in India purely coincidental?

In this latest episode of Money and Fear, a consideration of the War on Cash will accompany a wider questioning of the blockchain as efforts aimed toward the establishing of a one world monetary order, and as quickly as possible.  What that level of assumed power will entail will also be pondered, for better or for worse.

Hollywood on the Brink: Sex Scandals, Lies, Money & Fear

There’s certainly no love lost here for shamed film producer Harvey Weinstein or his ilk, and there’s zero excuses for his behavior towards women, colleagues, staff and talent.  The recent spate of scandals coming out of Hollywood involving the past sexual assaults and offenses of both high and low-profile executives and creative talent are odd only in the sense of their volume, timing and seemingly coordinated effort.  Yet *where* was the weight of such a coordinated national effort – which apparently involves the mainstream media, law enforcement and even government – in years or decades past?  Why now?  Is it because these violators have been behaving badly at an unprecedented rate and the knowing public can’t take it anymore?  Or could it be because there are subtler political and economic reasons involving Hollywood’s abominable economic performance as of late, which presumably needs punishing by the ruling corporate Elite Establishment?  An Establishment which could veritably be indirectly exploiting populist causes – namely, women’s and children’s rights – to send firm messages to an industry to ‘up its numbers’?

In this latest episode of Money and Fear, we’ll look at the public lambasting of the Harveys of the world against Hollywood’s recent and near-historical box office angst, as well as the further digital challenges to film studio business models in general.  Tune in, and as Public Enemy proclaimed, “Don’t Believe the Hype” …

The Dow at 23,000?!? Delirious Equity Markets vs. The Actual U.S. Economy…

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed above 23,000 last week, yet how and why?!?  The nonfictional US economy is much worse off than the stock indices lead on about.  Increasingly opaque digital means for trading massive volumes through “dark pools” and high frequency trading algorithms beg deep questions over how & why the equities markets seem so untethered from economic reality.  What are the roles of our largest banks, government agencies and their “revolving door” staffing policies in potentially propping up the stock market, and for what ultimate political purposes?  In this latest episode of Money and Fear, we’ll review near flick-of-the-switch mechanisms for ‘goosing’ not just individual company stocks, but whole indices, higher in order to assign the nurtured impression that our economy is humming along just fine while true rates of unemployment, wage growth, household savings and other indicators state otherwise.  Tune in to get ahead of the curve…

The Federal Reserve is About To Pull The Plug: Prepare For ‘Quantitative Tightening’ & ‘Creative Destruction’

What will happen as the US Federal Reserve decides to pull away the “unconventional” monetary stimulus punch bowl from the US and global economies?  Will their actions truly be for the good of both US and foreign economic and political stability, or is it all part of a much wider, longer term design aimed at nurturing collective chaos en route to a grander planned sense of international ‘synthesis’?  In this latest episode of Money and Fear, we’ll look at both “Quantitative Easing” (QE) as well as its impending policy nemesis, “Quantitative Tightening” (QT), or the Fed’s shrinking of its balance sheet, coupled potentially with hiking interest rates, as ad hoc and imminently unruly processes.  The Fed’s – and foreign central banks’ - latest measures are about to wreak havoc in markets, not unlike what happened nearly a decade ago, which triggered said QE implementation in the first place.  Sober questioning coupled with quantitative data and a sampling of input from leading commentators will be offered for your sense of defense, so tune in.

The Not So Hidden Hand: Government & Wall Street Manipulation of Stock Markets

Critical Questions for students of Economics and Finance, as well as for retail investors worldwide:  If you were shown how an academic discipline, or an investment marketplace, were rigged, or at the least, not fully what they’re officially sold as being, would you still invest your time, effort and/or hard earned cash?  Or would you want the truth, and to then plan accordingly around it?  Is ‘fitting in’ that important to you to where you’d potentially turn a blind eye to scientific and political realities involving financial corruption?  How long until you lose your shirt on said prescribed gamble?  In this episode of Money and Fear, we’ll review evidence of government and big banking’s manipulation of stock and other markets, and why they’re manipulated.  Short and long term goals for such interventions are considered, and how much more opaque it’ll all become in the future will be covered.  Hard numbers and graphs, advanced trading methods and Fed intervention … all to keep you on you aware of modern money’s painted pictures.

Generation Debt: The Student Loan & Wider College Rackets

Questions for students and their parents:  If college cost $750,000, would you still attend, taking out student loans to meet that amount?  How about $500,000?  No?  How about the $50,000 to $250,000 it currently costs, then?  In other words, what is the true price tag for ‘ensuring success’ in society, and why has it been rising so aggressively over the past 50 years?  In turn, what are the actual – versus perceived – dividends of such an “investment”?  In this episode of Money and Fear, we’ll look at the impending Student Debt Crisis and dissipating perceptions of college as an inimitable personal and economic resource.  The size and pace of student loan growth mirrors that of the subprime mortgage fiasco of the prior decade.  We’ll look at how and why while also bluntly asking if college is ‘relevant’ anymore.  We’ll review figures, causes and effects behind this seemingly unfixable economic dilemma, which threatens the nation’s collective solvency and prosperity.

Bitcoin as Conditioner: Rolling Out One World Currency

Forget its price trajectory and the rest of the prescribed hype for a second.  *Why* is Bitcoin a ‘thing’, who said so, when, and what for?  Was it genuinely a product of simple private sector ingenuity during a time of maximum need?  OR, based on the many Establishment-linked constituencies trading, investing or imminently, regulating it, is it a ‘test balloon’ or ‘beta test’ for a much wider, older elite plan for global monetary revision?  In this episode of Money and Fear, we’ll look at Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies and the blockchain from much more nuanced political, historical and philosophical perspectives than sell-side, hyped-up evangelists, or even Bitcoin’s standard critics, are used to considering.  We’ll weigh Bitcoin against periodic appeals from Establishment sources for a ‘one world currency’.  Runaway price movements will be observed against historical “Tulip Bulb Manias” and philosophical considerations regarding “money” will be reconsidered.  Do not miss this one-of-a-kind show to find out what this relatively recent monetary “phenom” is supposed to even mean!
