2050..

Bubbles are the talk of the town. Bubbles by which an increasingly desperate banking system is trying to increase asset values to support their debt collateral in a normal down trend that follows an overheated growth phase in economic fortunes. Strangely enough, everybody seems to clean forget the population bubble which runs alongside like the …

Then and Now

*THEN you woke up in a cold sweat worrying about losing your better workers. NOW you wake up in a cold sweat worrying yourself sick about how to get rid of the bad ones. *THEN bosses kicked-arse to get things done. NOW bosses kiss-arse to lift their politically correct profile. *THEN you were a person …

The IMF and the do-gooders

Haven’t you ever wondered where this spate of government’s interference, since independence, in what used to be personal choices and preferences, comes from? I mean, here we have parliaments the world over seriously struggling to deal with their normal workload of administering a country spending days, nay months, on such bickering issues as the magnitude …

Swakopmund; the rape and pillaging of

What would be the most valuable heritage you could leave to posterity in an ever growing world, or shrinking planet if you prefer? Surely the maintenance of unrestricted public recreational space must be pretty near the top of anyone’s list of priorities. Particularly if you are public spirited and believe in the sanctuary of private …

Stimulus mania or titillations for recovery

Instead of reducing taxes by 2Trillion and thereby allowing viable industry to pick itself up again by the scruff of its neck, the blithering idiots borrow 2Trillion in the name of their already anaemic Human Resources to allow the corporate deadwood and their robot factories to survive. All this in the name of transformation, equality, …

Inflation and why it is inevitable

To swing an election  in today’s entrenched two party AAE (Anglo-American-European) democracies, only about 10% of the voting population is required for the ascendancy of one or the other. The remaining 90% are unwaveringly and firmly entrenched between left, right and couldn’t-give-a-damn, according to the latest cognition. Both chief parties have long since stopped bothering …

It’s not only credit that got crunched, what about balls?

America, the land of endless opportunity. When we were kids, Cowboys and Indians was the preferred playground pastime and the “wars” fought between the Ford and Chevrolet camps are legendary to this day. Nobody had ever been to America or even knew an American, but the impact and admiration for America and its way of …

Fehlt der Deutschen Justiz die geistige Reife?

Von spezifischen Urteilen mal ganz abgesehen. Ich meine es war im Vorjahr und wenn ich mich nicht irre im Saarland. Es wurde spezifisch eine Richterin gesucht, um eine bestehende Lücke zu schließen. Diese Exklusivität in Sache Weiblichkeit im Justizministerium, selbst die letzte Instanz für das Antidiskriminierungsgesetz, sollte einer Klage fehlender geistiger Reife fast genügen. Aber …

Frau Merkel’s Applaus

‘Für ihre engagierte Rede vor den 1001 Delegierten in der Düsseldorfer Messehalle hat Angela Merkel achteinhalb Minuten Applaus geerntete’, laut Zeitungsbericht. Der arme Stoiber dagegen anderswo nur siebendreiviertel. Aber immerhin, alle Achtung, kein Reporter ohne Stopwatch. Ich gehe mal davon aus daß der Urheber der Berichterstattung gleich vorneweg auf die Tausend und eine Nacht Fabel …

Freedom of choice; the rape and pillaging of

When future archaeologists sieve through the debris of our bygone era to find out what went wrong, or more succinctly, who exactly is to blame for the fall of the former western industrial empire. They need not look any further than to assemble the pieces of who exactly, which persons, were responsible for legislating so …

Our Corporate

In the name of the Security, of the HealthAndSafety and of the HumanResourceManagement. Amen The gold price, unlike share prices, is in the short term not generally plagued by possible missed growth/profit expectations nor quarterly reports that could unexpectedly deviate from analytical projections. One could therefore reasonably exclude large natural market fluctuations in price at …

Hunde wollt ihr ewig leben

Kein Mensch, oder wenigstens kein halbwegs Normaldenkender, würde sich von bellenden Hunden aus der Ruhe bringen lassen wenn es diesbezüglich nicht um die immer vorhandenen Ausnahmen ginge. Dem normalen Hund, als Gruppentier, ist es angeboren seine Gruppe vor Gefahren zu warnen in der uns wohlbekannten Form des Laut geben durch bellen oder kläffen. Welcher Unterschied, …

Das Kalkül mit dem Ausstand

Jedes lahr, mit beunruhigender Regelmäßigkeit kommt die Zeit der obligatorischen Lohnverhandlungen. Die Marionetten werden aus der linken unteren Mottenkiste geholt. Die von der Internationalen Arbeitsorganisation (ILO) sekundierten Ex-Ostdeutschen, Schweden und der Rest der Pseudosowjets spitzen ihre Bleistifte und stauben Monate der Untätigkeit rund um den kapitalistischen Fleischtöpfen ab, sich rüstend für die jährliche Scharade. Wie …

What is worrying the money moguls, lack of funds or lack of takers?

So, the banks are in danger of loosing their hair-raising loans? So what! Where did their easy credit come from in the first place? Savers? We’ve just been told there are no savers. Never before was the savings rate at the current low across the board. Ironically coinciding with the greatest credit spree the world …
