Venezuela being forced to sell off long term

Assets to satisfy short-term debt issues. I wonder if there isn't a better way to structure their currency that might allow short term liquidity without long term losses.

Currency wars - prognosis of the USD

Reading this interesting comparison between Iceland and Ireland, it can be understood that each currency is a microcosm used to determine outcome and adjust strategy accordingly. (Scotland cutting off the Queen was a significant event.)
The USD is King of the currencies and is under attack from all sides.

Prognosis
If the USD is engineered into hyperinflation (as it appears it is poised to), the US population is heavily armed and will need to fight for food or water. This will position the population against its own military and police force (as has been seen). With large casualties, the "winners" can walk into the US with few casualties of their own.

Solutions
  • restore trust in the accounting
  • restore trust in the data security
  • stock exchanges in 50 states distributes capital much more effectively

Is this the beginning of the great hyper inflation?

Prices have gone to rents. As rent is a long term contract, that is a floor providing the upward spiral. https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/rents-haircuts-americans-start-feel-165500571.html

Adding some thoughts:
Rent is a long-term contract, so when that goes up, it affects the CPI permanently.

Wages are a long-term contract, so when that goes to $15/hour, it affects the CPI permanently.

The stage has been set for a hyper-inflationary upward spiral. I do not think the Fed can stop it, despite their enormous creativity.

FYI, I think the gold market's recent turmoil is due to a difference between paper and physical. Note Bullion Direct's recent bankruptcy.

"Program" trading in action

One might notice the extreme similarity between the market action of the EUR/USD and the SPX500.  Start from the steep drop off, notice the precise ups and downs.  One is 5 minute, and one is 15 minute.  This is due to volume differences between the two markets at that time of day.  However, it is proof of computer control over price action.

How does that occur?

Market players in the EUR/USD in the aftermath of gold's plunge


Note the Blue-circled area.  Do we note the dramatic "character-change" of the market between the hours of 10am sharp and 1pm?

Who do you think that was?

A stock exchange in each state

Is it possible to sell shares in a corporation to residents domiciled in the state of incorporation without SEC regulatory oversight?  Yes.

What does that do for a state's economy?

As I was raised in Texas, the best place for that stock exchange in Texas is San Antonio. With rememberances to the Alamo, it would be the most secure. That brings high-paying jobs to the area.
