  by John Galt June 10, 2012 23:40 ET   Hey, remember this guy?     Who could ever forget that awesome prediction. Along with the Dow 20K guy, of course. Someday soon, with the Bernank’s help, they might be right.   But for practical purposes, let’s review the upcoming Spanglish rally created by the FedECBJCBPRAYFORAMIRACLEOHGODWEAREALLGOINGTODIE bank of the world.   The S&P 500 has some serious headwinds as Herr Obummer likes to call them:     A break through the 1360ish area with major volume could mean the computers want…


It’s not the Capital Flight to worry about, It’s the People Flight

  by John Galt June 10, 2012 22:20 ET   Throughout my years of reporting on this economic disaster, the one compelling data point has not been housing, inflation, gold purchases by central banks, deflation, capital flight, nor unemployment. The truly telling figure has been the departure of the irreplaceable element from any economic structure, that being the loss of human capital, the one element which can save a nation or destroy it.

06.10.12 AEP: Once again, he figures it out that this is really a GERMAN Invasion

  by John Galt June 10, 2012 19:30 ET   Ambrose Evans-Pritchard figures it out once again as the pathetic announced underwhelming bailout of Spain amounts to nothing more than a march in the woods for the new financial spring time financial Wehrmacht assembled by the German led European Central Bank. The dirty dark secret the Spanish media wants to mask at the request of the current government is as simple as it was for the Greeks and Irish:   “Don’t ask, don’t tell, and lie to our citizens.”   In…
