InvestmentWatchBlog – EU Regulator To Banks: Don’t “Buy, Hold, Sell” Virtual Currencies – 6 July 2014

 InvestmentWatchWolf Richter wolfstreet.com, www.amazon.com/author/wolfrichter

The European Banking Authority has done it again. It wasn’t exactly ahead of the curve when, in September 2013, virtual currencies (VC) “emerged” on its “radar as one of the many innovations to monitor.” At the time, it marveled at the ability to transfer money peer-to-peer without an intermediary, such as a bank. But this being a “payment service,” it fell into its bailiwick, and so it “began assessing the phenomenon.” Three months after that propitious moment, it issued a public warning,

Laura Bruno – The Elf Tree – 6 july 2014


Oh, my goodness! One look at the photo, and I had to reblog this one. Just delightful!

Originally posted on Ethereal Nature:

Beside the shore of the hallowed lake, there has dwelt a kindhearted Elf for nigh 60 years. A shy emissary from the lands of enchantment,  on spring’s first day he returns to his dwelling by the water.    Politely knock on his door and peer inside to see piles of candy and slips of paper, little notes written by the hands of children.  The young ones leave him treats and letters, with sincere greetings or serious queries, to which Mr. Elf kindly replies.  Upon their return a child will find a note addressed to them by name, neatly typed in the smallest of print.  So many to rifle through, but they always find a merry reply, with the closing salutation, “I believe in You.”

Then when summer is done and fall in is in the air, it is time for the Elf to vacate his tree once more.  He hangs…

Laura Bruno – Hydrangeas! – 6 July 2014

laura-of-the-rocksYesterday, my friend Kimber saw “free flowers” advertised on Facebook. Apparently, the owners have a huge patch of hydrangea, which they thought would just get knocked over by the rain. They have cats so can’t bring these beauties inside without making a mess. How lovely to share them with others! Kimber came by with a 5 gallon bucket and offered us some. We used to have a white hydrangea bush in our backyard in Madison. Once I figure out where all the additional fruit trees, fruit bushes, medicinal herbs and dwarf chestnut tree(?) go, I would love to get one of these. So old fashioned! Continue reading

ZeroHedge – CEO Of One Of The World’s Largest Energy Majors “Sees No Reason For Petrodollar” – 6 July 2014

ZeroHedgeThe USA is fast running out of friends to support its ‘exorbitant privelege’. Having alienated the Germans over NSA-eavesdropping, ‘boomerang’d the Russians into de-dollarization, tariffed and quantitatively eased China into diversification, and finally ‘punished’ France into discussing the dollar’s demise; it appears no lessor person than the CEO of Total (the world’s 13th biggest oil producer and Europe’s 2nd largest), believes “There is no reason to pay for oil in dollars.” Clearly, based on Christophe de Margerie’s comments, that we have passed peak Petrodollar.

ZeroHedge – Pitchforks, Brainwashing And The Mathematics Of Persuasive Deceit – 6 july 2014

ZeroHedgeSubmitted by Ben Tanosborn

Affluence Economics: Low-Inflation and “Fool” Employment

Numbers don’t lie, the saying goes, but the have-liars are doing their numbers on the gullible have-nots.  And although mathematics is an exact science, it can be used as a practical tool by inexact social scientists working for those trying to influence people at the civic or individual level, call it politics or more accurately, persuasive deceit.

That’s where we have been finding ourselves in the United States for more than three decades, sporting a government of the powerful affluent, whether ran by the apostles of Tweedledee, or the disciples of Tweedledum, lying to the citizenship in all aspects that matter, be it their security, human rights or economic health.

ZeroHedge- Productivity Can Return If The Central Banks Would Give It A Chance – 6 July 2014

ZeroHedge(Lucas: The fiat currency fractional reserve banking system of the FED worldwide with its only printing currencies without any form of backing out of nothing in “I Owe U Notes” worth nothing more than the belief you give it still is a debt-slavery system that makes the “Corporate”governments paying interest onto the money a private corporation prints FED /ECB/Central banks  that is not a government agency or part of the government like the treasury. We pay in taxes and also in having interest on our loans or even money the coasts for our government not printing themselves interest free money. This is how you got debt-slaves. So a Central Bank saving you is the most idiot thing to think…! They will keep the system for their profit running as long as they can even with fraud, lies, cheating, rigging figures, buying your news outlets to sell you a story of recovery as the system is at it ending and falling apart. The so-called reset they talk about it for those banking systems the preferred way out. It means just resetting everything to ‘Zero” and starting the shit all over. Just get it, Read and inform yourselves…. Following is a video from Dutch TV Documentary makers VPRO which can show a way to break out of this system. And Permaculture is a possible way!)

Commodity-king Andy Lees (ex-UBS and current manager of ALM Macro) explains that today’s declining global productivity is and was always a consequence of government policy of taxing productivity in favor of social transfers. The gradual dumbing down of capitalism and move towards social democracy over the last 50 years relied on building a Ponzi scheme of financial innovation to keep the illusion alive. But, he offers hopefully, system dynamics of the natural environment (how land that was once lost to the desert by over taxing it can be returned to a productive use) offer hope that this ponzi trend can be broken.

As Andy Lees writes,

This video looks at the system dynamics of the natural environment, and how land that was once lost to the desert by over taxing it can be returned to a productive use.

ZeroHedge – Congressional Panel Accused Of Leaking Insider Information, Refuses To Comply With Probe – 6 July 2014

ZeroHedgeIt was back in April 2013, when the WSJ reported of a peculiar surge in various health insurance stocks that came moments after a report from Height Securities, a Washington-based investment-research firm that ferrets out policy news and analysis for investors, correctly predicted the Obama administration would reverse course on big spending cuts that would have hit health insurers. The note was released about 15 minutes before markets closed on Monday, April 1, leading to the following surge in the biggest Obamacare beneficiaries.
