Russia: Tangled Threads (11/30/15 12:08)

Official Washington’s many false narratives about Russia and Syria have gotten so tangled that they have become a danger to the struggle against Sunni jihadist terrorism and conceivably a threat to the future of the planet.

Eurozone: Natixis on Brexit (11/30/15 12:06)

The scaremongering is about the EU and not the UK. It isn’t about the economy, which would be fine on either side of the Channel, but about political power, about the EU’s “economic and diplomatic weight” in the world, and about the size and power of the bureaucracy in Brussels.

Global Crisis: Where to Begin? (11/18/15 12:09)

A brief history on how the Federal Reserve became the undemocratic, corrupt and destructive force it is today.

China: GDP Mirage (11/01/15 14:10)

Among other things, China habitually understates inflation for domestic output which means that "real" GDP is probably less "real" than nominal GDP.

The European single currency’s share of global transactions has dramatically shrunk in the last two years, from 40% in January, 2013, to 27% today. Europe’s share of global earnings has halved from just over 40% in 2009 to just over 20% today. It’s hardly what you’d call a success story.

USA: Wimp Nation (11/01/15 14:05)

"The United States has become a nation of weak, pampered, easily frightened, helpless milquetoasts who have never caught a fish, fired a gun, chopped a log, hitchhiked across the country, or been in a schoolyard fight.

Spain: The Real "Wirtschaftswunder" (10/24/15 18:11)
