Ringgit rout

Large foreign holdings of bonds make Malaysia highly vulnerable to capital flight, while weak fiscal position and political turmoil add to risk.

Bangkok Post Pathom Sangwongwanich

A perfect storm is forming around the Malaysian ringgit, as its value remains at risk from a protracted economic slump aggravated by a domestic political scandal and the prospect of rising US interest rates.

But the distress does not stop there, as a currency sell-off in Malaysia could have a contagious financial spillover on neighbouring economies, sparking capital outflows and compounding financial volatility.

The Death of the U.S. Dollar and the Collapse of all other Fiat Currencies

IMF’s Christine Lagarde

As we predicted months ago, the IMF officially green-lighted the acceptance of China’s currency – the Yuan – into the IMF’s foreign exchange basket.
According to Reuters, this move paves the way for the IMF to place the yuan on a par with the U.S. dollar. This is the latest in a series of global developments that threatens to eliminate the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency. Experts predict this announcement will trigger one of the most profound transfers of wealth in our lifetime. So if you want to protect your savings & retirement, you better get your money out of U.S. dollar investments and into the one asset class that rises as currencies collapse.

The True Reason behind The 40-Hour Work Week and Why We Are Economic Slaves

What is the true reason behind the 40-hour work week?

Economic slavery, or wage slavery, refers to one’s total and immediate dependence on wages to survive.

Although people throughout history have had to work to get by, we now live in a culture where we are led to believe we have economic freedom, when unbeknownst to most citizens, we are in fact bound in servitude. We automatically accept a 40-hour workweek with meager hourly pay as normal, even though many work overtime and still struggle to survive. There are also those who make enough to live comfortably but are unable to request less hours—you either work 40 hours a week, or you don’t get to work at all...


Cash, Bail-ins and Banks insolvency

When Cyprus banks were about to go belly up a couple of years ago, they saved themselves by raiding customers’ accounts, which is more palatably described as a bail-in.

The reaction of global savers to this action by the Cyprus banks was one of horror and revulsion – and they made it plain that they weren’t going to stand idly by and watch banks plunder their funds. They would withdraw them as cash if any such threat should appear over the horizon. This reaction set the great minds of the banking community to work on how to stop savers withdrawing their funds in the face of these threats. The solution was and is simple – abolish cash!

The solution was and is simple – abolish cash!

The Silver Story


‘X’ Marks the Spot Where Inequality Took Root

In 2002, I heard an economist characterizing this figure as containing a valuable economic insight. He wasn’t sure what the insight was. I have my own answer.

The economist talked of the figure as a sort of treasure map, which would lead us to the insight. “X” marks the spot. Dig here.

The graphic below tells three stories.

First, we see two distinct historic periods since World War II. In the first period, workers shared the gains from productivity. In the later period, a generation of workers gained little, even as productivity continued to rise.

Figure 1: The X marks the spot where something happened.

Figure 1: The ‘X’ marks the spot where something happened in the mid-1970’s.

The second message is the very abrupt transition from the post-war historic period to the current one...
