What is a Commodity Super Cycle?

The evidence suggests that human industrialization drives commodity prices into cycles. However, past growth was asymmetric around the world with different countries taking the lion’s share of commodities at different times.

America’s Financial Suicide: The Budget Deficit Rises 26% in One Year as Federal Spending Spirals Wildly out of Control

We are in the process of committing national financial suicide, and most Americans don’t seem to care.  As  you will see below, the federal budget deficit for the fiscal year that ended on September 30th was the largest in 7 years.  In fact, it was actually 26 percent larger than last year.  Federal spending is wildly out of control, and “non-discretionary spending” is projected to go through the roof in the years ahead.  Under our current system, it is literally going to be impossible to turn things around.  As the Baby Boomers continue to retire, the amount of resources demanded…

The Campaign to Stop William Barr

The uproar is not about Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani investigating the former vice president. It’s about William Barr investigating Russiagate, which is far more important.

Don’t Bet on Republicans Saving Trump

Impeachment is a political process, not a legal one. There is no legal standard for ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ as stipulated in the Constitution. That definition will stand on what the nominally Republican-controlled Senate think.

A World without Books: the End Game for Social Justice Radicals?

And here is where Google campus must tremble with absolute fear and loathing, for when an asteroid hits, or the lights go out, or a hacker strikes, or the wily algorithm decides to bury vital information down the memory hole, books will continue to sit pretty, albeit dusty, on the mantle, their essential truths untouched by the intolerant digital age.

Blinded by the Money

One reason for this is that the large numbers of Chinese students at Australian universities are starting to turn their financial clout into political power. Australian academics have been forced to apologise — or worse — for remarks made in the classroom about Sino-sensitive topics like Hong Kong and Taiwan, Tiananmen Square, Tibet, and border disputes with India.

Central Bankers Go Green… Why?

Carney believes that a new global reserve currency must replace the U.S. Dollar, ... entirely controlled by private banking institutions and totally removed from sovereign nation states, [but rather will be controlled by] an “enlightened technocratic elite” who know how to truly think long term.

It Is Time To Go: Over Half of All California Voters “Have Considered Leaving the State”

Cities all over the state are degenerating into drug-infested, crime-ridden hellholes that are literally being overrun by millions of rats.  California has some of the worst traffic in the entire world, unchecked illegal immigration is causing a whole host of social problems, and gang activity has become a massive problem.  On top of everything else, California is being constantly hit by wildfires, mudslides, earthquakes and other natural disasters.

Brexit: 1939 All Over Again

How could it ever be in the interests of a nation state to surrender its capacity to govern itself to a foreign power? That is what results from our EU membership. Laws enacted by the EU trump our national laws.

Supreme Court: Jarndyce versus Jarndyce 2019

Almost without exception, all our senior judges grew up in the university world of the 1970s, where largely left-of-centre law faculties regarded as axiomatic the idea that the future must lie in academic human rights discourse, technocratic control by administrative judges of elected ministers, and above all the continued development of the European project...
