Elections in South America and Europe Reveal Backlash against Socialism / Politics / Social Issues

By: MoneyMetals

As markets reopen following the Thanksgiving holiday, investors are feeling thankful that interest rates are no longer rising.

Stocks, bonds, and precious metals have all gained ground in recent days as long-term rates have come down. Meanwhile, expectations for the Federal Reserve to cut its benchmark short-term rate in 2024 have risen.

Minutes from the Fed’s latest meeting were released on Tuesday. They revealed policymakers intend to keep rates “restrictive” at current levels until inflation comes down further.

On May 11, 1997, Garry finally lost.

Garry Kasparov, the greatest chess player in history—who hadn’t lost in 15 years—was defeated by IBM’s artificial intelligence (AI) Deep Blue.

Deep Blue eked out the win, 3 ½ to 2 ½. Man and machine were roughly evenly matched.

But do you know what’s happened to AI chess bots since then?

Global Wealth Pyramid - Survival of the Richest / Politics / Social Issues

By: Richard_Mills

Inequality is one of the most volatile aspects of contemporary society, and it is getting worse. As the gap between the haves and the have-nots widens, and the middle class shrinks, the chances of social upheaval increase.

History tells us that a state’s failure to redress rampant inequality can result in bloody revolution.

In the United States and around the world, the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. According to The Conversation, in every major region of the world outside Europe, extreme wealth is becoming concentrated in a handful of people.

The Queen is lying in state, and her subjects have been queuing for as long as 24 hours to give their final respects to Britians longest reigning monarch.

Britian is said to be a nation of quers. Whilst that may be true for most, the younger iphone generation tend to be a nation of queue jumpers, as the Queens queue brings back memeories of the euques at Alton Tower at the height of the pandemic during 20201, when the vaccines were still yet to be jabbed into most peoples arms.

What are the benefits of doing good deeds? / Personal_Finance / Social Issues

By: Mark_Adan

There are several benefits to doing good deeds, both short-term and long-term. Short-term benefits can include feeling good about yourself, having a positive impact on others, and making a difference in the world. Long-term benefits can include developing self-confidence, gaining moral character, and developing a sense of purpose in life.

Self-confidence is one of the most commonly cited benefits of doing good deeds. When you feel good about yourself, you are more likely to feel confident in other areas of your life, including your work and relationships. Building self-confidence can be difficult, but it is definitely worth the effort.

Why is vaping a trend amongst teens? / Politics / Social Issues

By: Boris_Dzhingarov

The main objective at the start of the electric smoking industry was to get standard cigarette smokers to make the switch to an e-cigarette and combat their nicotine addictions. Though there are still millions of people who still use cigarettes, many people did decide to make the switch. Par of the electric smoking industry’s success is owed to a group of people that the industry had not taken into consideration, teenagers. As the e-smoking business grew, teenagers all over the world started using it, but is that a good thing?

Exploring James Drake’s Philanthropic Ventures / Politics / Social Issues

By: Sumeet_Manhas

20 years ago, the philanthropist and entrepreneur James Drake launched his first major enterprise: Future Science Group. Since then, he has developed a host of not-for-profit initiatives that operate within this progressive publisher and benefit from its resources and marketing, financial, legal, and IT departments. This way, each philanthropic enterprise can thrive in its own right and give back to industry-specific communities. Today, Drake leads an expansive philanthropic programme of organisations that contribute to the UK’s medical, scientific, and artistic arenas.

Drake’s philanthropic ventures might vary in terms of sector and approach, but each of his projects connects individuals from different backgrounds so thought-leaders can collaborate and contribute to society. From funding essential research into sports-related head impacts to providing scholarships for underprivileged musicians, publishing letter collections brimming with correspondence that may otherwise go unseen, and curating a central database for the renowned sculptor Prince Paul Troubetzkoy, Drake’s work covers a broad compass.

How to hold up the world / Politics / Social Issues

By: Michael_T_Bucci

As Thanksgiving in America approaches, a time for reflection on the deeper meanings of friendship, family and colleagues who have come into our lives - some who we like and others we dislike - we remind ourselves that underneath the masks and roles we play on the great stage of life we are all human beings. We all need oxygen, sun, food and, most importantly, we need validation for who we are, what we believe and acknowledgment for help we give others.

As we give thanks to those who have given meaning to us, we shouldn’t ignore the perfect strangers. In that light, I thank Market Oracle and its editor, Nadeem Walayat, for providing its readers this website; for providing a platform for astute thinkers and analysts to showcase their expertise. Thank you.

Why Workers Are NOT Returning to Work as Lockdown's End - Wage Slaves Rebellion / Politics / Social Issues

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Britains has a record near 1 million vacancies despite economic contraction courtesy of the Chinese virus global pandemic. And similarly is true right across the western world as millions of workers even in relatively well paid jobs are refusing to return. This video answers why it is happening as a message I have been iterating for over 2 decades resonated with the west's wage slave workers, as to why are they wasting their lives creating wealth for others when all they had to do was gather enough courage to take the leap and do what the rich and wealthy have been doing for centuries!

Global sovereign debt has been expanding at historic rates with the US Debt quickly now approaching $30T with the US Debt Ceiling moratorium ending Saturday July 31st. Overlay this with a $3.5T US budget reconciliation bill presently on the floor of congress (which along with other planned expenditures will total over $5T) policy setters are soon going to have to ask whether this spending is actually helping or hindering? Maybe just as important a question is who has been winning or losing during this era of exploding debt?

Dogecoin to the Moon! The Signs are Everywhere, but few will Heed them / Politics / Social Issues

By: James_Quinn

“Fools, as it has long been said, are indeed separated, soon or eventually, from their money. So, alas, are those who, responding to a general mood of optimism, are captured by a sense of their own financial acumen. Thus it has been for centuries; thus in the long future it will also be.” ― John Kenneth Galbraith, A Short History of Financial Euphoria

The signs of an epic bubble of historic proportions are everywhere. The stock market is a bubble, with valuations exceeding 2001. Margin debt is at all-time highs. The bond market is a bubble, with the Fed artificially suppressing rates and pumping trillions of QE into Wall Street. Housing is experiencing another bubble, with prices now far exceeding the 2005 peak. Bitcoin and the rest of the crypto-currencies are a bubble, being driven by the excess liquidity sloshing around the system. A joke crypto currency like Dogecoin soars into the stratosphere because money has no meaning anymore.

US Deep State - Who is Shaking the Jar? / Politics / Social Issues

By: James_Quinn

“If you catch 100 red fire ants as well as 100 large black ants, and put them in a jar, at first, nothing will happen. However, if you violently shake the jar and dump them back on the ground the ants will fight until they eventually kill each other. The thing is, the red ants think the black ants are the enemy and vice versa, when in reality, the real enemy is the person who shook the jar. This is exactly what’s happening in society today. Liberal vs. Conservative. Black vs. White. Pro Mask vs. Anti-Mask. Vax vs. Anti-vax. Rich vs. poor. Man vs. woman. Cop vs. citizen. The real question we need to be asking ourselves is who’s shaking the jar… and why?” – Shera Starr

A few weeks ago, I saw the above quote in Jeff Thomas’ article Learning from Ants, and it has been reverberating in my mind ever since. It is a perfect analogy for what has been happening in this country for years, with the jar lately being shaken at a rate faster than a Biden vote count increase at 3:00 am in a swing state. Everyone in this country, and the world, is at each other’s throats. Who is shaking the jar? Why are they shaking the jar? Why do they want us fighting each other?

If they keep us focused on fighting each other, they believe we will not notice their reprehensible criminality, as they manipulate the masses through psychological engineering and the employment of propaganda techniques to push their desired narrative. If you ask someone – who is shaking the jar? – they will likely answer based on the standard left vs right, liberal vs conservative, white vs black paradigm which has been created by those benefiting from conflict. It is always a safe bet to follow the money when trying to identify the culprits.

Vonnegut’s Dark Vision Arrived 60 Years Early / Politics / Social Issues

By: James_Quinn

“THE YEAR WAS 2081, and everybody was finally equal. They weren’t only equal before God and the law. They were equal every which way. Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else. All this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General.” – Harrison Bergeron – Kurt Vonnegut

Kurt Vonnegut’s short story – Harrison Bergeron – was written in 1961, and in Vonnegut’s darkly satirical style, portrayed America in 2081 as an disgracefully dystopian nightmare. Little did Vonnegut know what he considered outrageous and 120 years in the future, would be far closer to our current dystopian reality just 60 years later. The story was brought to my attention by my wife a week ago when we were talking about the absurdity of masks, their uselessness in stopping viruses, how they are nothing more than a means to control the population, being used to spread fear, and as a dehumanizing technique.

Hacking Wall Street to Close the Wealth Gap / Politics / Social Issues

By: John_Mauldin

By Dawn Pennington : Just like the legend of a bow-and-arrow toting, Sherwood Forest-dwelling vigilante, Menlo Park, Calif.-based Robinhood set out to bring that sentiment to the retail investing set with a brokerage app.

The company was founded in April 2013 by Vladimir Tenev and Baiju Bhatt, who had previously built high-frequency trading platforms for financial institutions. Their goal was to provide everyone with access to the financial markets, not just the wealthy… just like the Merry Men would do with unsuspecting victims traveling through Sherwood Forest.

The idea was a hit. No one had ever offered stock trades with zero commissions. This made investing affordable for people of any age and income. Today, the app has over 13 million users with an average age of 31.

The company has no storefront branches and operates entirely online without fees… and, as customers found out last week, no customer service.

The Road To Perdition Is Paved With Evil Intentions / Politics / Social Issues

“Suckers think that you cure greed with money, addiction with substances, expert problems with experts, banking with bankers, economics with economists, and debt crises with debt spending”Nassim Nicholas Taleb, The Bed of Procrustes: Philosophical and Practical Aphorisms

“Globalization has created this interlocking fragility. At no time in the history of the universe has the cancellation of a Christmas order in New York meant layoffs in China.”Nassim Nicholas Taleb

As we continue our national lockdown suicide cult to hell, I find myself getting angrier and angrier at the pathetic leadership displayed by politicians, government bureaucrats, so called medical “experts”, and intellectual yet idiot academics displaying their ignorance of facts, reality, history, and humanity. My nature is to be skeptical of everything I read or am told.

The Society will Strike Back, or are the Swedish too Dumb? / Politics / Social Issues

By: Submissions

I first wrote about a contact tracing surveillance app on mobile phones on 6th April 2020. Six days later, on the 12th April Apple and Google announce their cooperation to develop such app. Apart from the fact the authorities will never let a tech company to store such sensitive information the fundamental problem with Google and Apple plan is the fact that a government will not accept a disease carrier individual to freely and anonymously pass a disease to others in society. It is against the fundamental responsibility of each sovereign state to keep health and well being of society. It is highly naive if Apple or Google thinks that the state will not get involved and will have a closed eye on the control of such sensitive information. As I stated before we will move eventually more to a full implementation of a state contact tracing (surveillance) plan.
