CPI is “Tame” but not for the reasons the Media would have you believe

by John Galt May 15, 2012 22:30 ET   The usual suspects are at their propaganda inspired best with the monthly BLS report on consumer prices. The mainstream media has the usual headlines:May 15, 2012 22:30 ET   US Consumer-Price Index Unchanged; Core Rate Climbs 0.2% US April consumer prices flat as gasoline drops US consumer prices flat as gas costs fall   In other words, gas distorted reality as the reality is that the impacts on things the average American need or use every month increased except for electrical utilities…


While Europe Burns and America Slumbers, Israel prepares for War

by John Galt May 18, 2012 19:05 ET   Last night on my live podcast I covered this story then after a customary four hours of sleep the realization hit me today of the implications of this story form the Jerusalem Post:   IDF building backup facilities for key sites   The Eurozone is in the midst of a total economic collapse, the United States mired in the summer doldrums of a political campaign between Tweedle-D and Tweedle-bo-R-edom, and in the mean time, Iran and Israel both appear to be accelerating…


5.15.12 AEP: Appetiser cost of Greek exit is €155bn for Germany, France: trillions for meat course

by John Galt May 15, 2012 18:45 ET   Appetiser cost of Greek exit is €155bn for Germany, France: trillions for meat course   My fellow internet wanderers, no, your eyes do not deceive you.

Facebook Follies meet Economic Reality

by John Galt May 15, 2012 16:25 ET   Does the sock puppet from Pets.com bring back any flashbacks of reality? How about these old internet dynamos and how they are doing these days:                           The list of companies could fill pages but the reality is that a profitable model must be in place or demand for the product to justify expenses for investment, product purchase, or advertising expenditures. The highlights above of “Yahoo Auctions” and “Google Answers” should…


The $1.024 Billion Bank Run

by John Galt May 15, 2012 15:55 ET     The Greek crisis took another turn for the worse as the middle class began to realize that no deal would be struck to form a new government and the European Central Bank would never seriously consider any relief for the stricken nation. As the electoral politics spiraled out of control over the weekend, on Monday Greek citizens withdrew approximately $1,024,000,000 aka €800 million from the nation’s banks. This means that the middle class has finally realized what the wealthy figured out…


Wake up that Dead Cat for Today’s Equity Bounce
