This is clearly indicative of a healthy and improving world economy. Everything is just fine.
This video comes to us from a reader. It’s a couple years old but it offers some illumination of the goings on in Brussels. It’s a pretty shady set up. Plus I can’t resist a video which features a parliamentarian citing Rothbard.
This comes from a good friend of ACC Natasha Srdoc. I encourage everyone to take a look at the attached report as it gives a very interesting perspective on what is really going on in that vital part of global real estate where Europe, The Middle East, and Asia converge.
“And who could forget Eurocorps here in Strasbourg last year, virtually goosestepping that ghastly flag around the courtyard outside.”
Farage believes that the current rising tensions with Russia are being used by some in Europe as an excuse to expand EU military powers. Powers some in the EU have long coveted.
But an armed European Union with all of the Continent under 1 flag is a worrying development as far as Mr. Farage is concerned. And one he feels should be of concern to his countrymen and to the broader world.
The “goosestepping” jibe while the EU Parliament was meeting in Germany was calculated.
Has anyone else noticed that the world has been in a depression since 2008? And NOW they’ve lost “control”?
There was a time when people in the West looked at the developing world and dismissed the corruption exhibited there as a disease of lesser economies. Nigeria, Belarus, Egypt, Brazil, all were (and are) chock full of insider dealing and bribery. In the West however we held ourselves to a higher standard. We had “clean” economies.
The big banks and governments don’t want the Swiss people to reback their money 20% with gold. What does that tell you?
Gold is real money. Paper is not. Gold doesn’t rise and fall in price (generally). Paper becomes more or less valuable relative to gold. This concept is lost on the general public. It is not lost on the bankers and the folks in government.
The establishment fears gold money. It reins in their power. Thus the reason they fight gold so ardently and why they are fighting it online and in newspapers today.
Willie says “Aye or die!”
The times they are a changin’ and they are a changin’ in jolly old England.
The United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) is an important force in British politics. It’s an important force in European politics. It is even influencing American politics. UKIP’s most recent achievements may be a harbinger of what is to come in the the USA.
The EU is a nasty organization. It keeps consolidating its power even though in many places the public is adamantly opposed to EU membership and the actions of the EU parliament.
“I’m not for laws. We need a minimum of laws. I hate big government, I hate being told what to do on a personal basis.” – Nigel Farage *
Nigel Farage has lead a deeply important political surge in the United Kingdom over the last few years. His rants from the floor of the European Parliament have become legendary.
Venice did its own thing for a long time before Italy came around, and it would likely do just fine without the dysfunctional lands to the city’s south.
