Brewing The 21st Century American Crisis

War Economy Accelerated...
– The War Economy (aka “WAR ON TERROR“)

With the institutional deployment of extraordinary emergency measures (bank bailouts, zero and near zero interest rates, “quantitative easing”, market manipulations, capital controls, and monetary reforms) this is the result!
The “War On Terror” added $2 trillion to the debt as of the FY 2018 budget.
“It will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped, and defeated.” (Source: “Bush Addresses Nation,” Washington Post, September 20, 2001.)”

…There are several components of the money supply,: M1, M2, and MZM (M3 is no longer tracked by the Federal Reserve); these components are arranged on a spectrum of narrowest to broadest. Consider M1, the narrowest component. M1 is the money supply of currency in circulation (notes and coins, traveler’s checks [non-bank issuers], demand deposits, and checkable deposits). A decreasing velocity of M1 might indicate fewer short- term consumption transactions are taking place. We can think of shorter- term transactions as consumption we might make on an everyday basis.
The broader M2 component includes M1 in addition to saving deposits, certificates of deposit (less than $100,000), and money market deposits for individuals. Comparing the velocities of M1 and M2 provides some insight into how quickly the economy is spending and how quickly it is saving.
MZM (money with zero maturity) is the broadest component and consists of the supply of financial assets redeemable at par on demand: notes and coins in circulation, traveler’s checks (non-bank issuers), demand deposits, other checkable deposits, savings deposits, and all money market funds. The velocity of MZM helps determine how often financial assets are switching hands within the economy. –Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis

* Boots on Ground is the number of troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. From 2001 – 2013, it’s as of December of that year. For 2014, it’s as of May. From “The Cost of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Other Global War on Terror Operations Since 9/11,” Table A-1, Amy Belasco, Congressional Research Service, March 29, 2014. For 2015, it’s from the fourth quarter. For 2016, it’s from the second quarter. From “Department of Defense Contractor and Troop Levels in Iraq and Afghanistan: 2007-2016,” Table 3, Heidi M. Peters, Congressional Research Service, August 15, 2016.

“That $2 trillion spent on the War on Terror created 17 million jobs. But if it had gone toward education instead, it would have created almost 36 million jobs.” –thebalance.com

There is increasing chatter in mainstream media about banking, market, economic, government, and social troubles.
While many of us truth seekers have been blogging about this for years, executives and career professionals have now begun to repeat it over mass media platforms, reaching millions worldwide.
Mass deception is being revealed to all who will not ignore it.
This may indicate how near the impending crisis is… ~Ron

    U.S. Government Shutdown Looms… Again

    If you thought that the Obamacare debacle was bad, just wait until you see what happens next.
    The continuing resolution that is currently funding the government expires on April 28th, and if a new funding agreement is not reached prior to that time, there will be a government shutdown like we witnessed in 2013 starting on April 29th, 2017.

    Amazingly, there are only 12 “legislative days” between now and April 28th, and if something is not done on one of those 12 days the government will shut down on April 29th.
    * A government shutdown would greatly rattle the financial markets.
    * Political reporter Mike Allen says that a “top Republican” told him that a government shutdown on April 29th is “more likely than not”

    Banks Are Crashing… Again

    Party’s over…

    With the yield curve flatter than before Trump’s election, and rates collapsing, reform was the last best hope for bank bulls…

    And after Friday’s debacle, it appears investors have lost patience…

    Over-Confident NATO Generals & Russian Retaliation

    Source: zerohedge.com Mar 27, 2017 7:20 PM

    Recently, US Lieutenant General Ben Hodges ordered over 60 US tanks to fire their guns in Poland. He later announced,

    We’re serious – this is not just a training exercise. It’s to demonstrate a strategic message that you cannot violate the sovereignty of members of NATO… Moscow will get the message – I’m confident of it.

    The general has reason to be confident. It can be said with relative certainty that, if the US sends scores of tanks halfway around the world to a country that borders Russia, then begins firing the guns, the Russians will indeed interpret that as a warning that their sovereignty is no longer respected by the US.

    Of course, they already have ample reason for concern, as, in recent years, the US tradition of détente has been dropped in favour of continual blackguarding of both Russia in general and its leader in particular. Every prominent television news programme in the US has kept up a steady stream of invective against Russia, often reporting stories that oppose what most of the world recognises as the truth.

    As to the generals, history is full of stories of military leaders who have demonstrated overconfidence and even eagerness to attack other sovereign nations. Do they seek to fight a great war in order to leave behind a legacy of their own personal greatness, or are they simply delusional—imagining their opponents to be imminently defeatable and their own army to be undefeatable?

    It matters little either way. The attitude has existed for thousands of years and countless military and political leaders have made the exact same mistake in every era.

    Interestingly, one consistent trait that we can observe is the blind confidence that accompanies the bluster and bravado. Leaders have a tendency to picture the glory of the destruction that they desire and rarely, if ever, anticipate a devastating pushback from their opposite number.

    This of course results in a very dangerous course of events – charging ahead without taking proper measure of what the opponent might do.

    Virtually every war in recent history has taken far longer to undertake than was originally expected. With few exceptions, wars that were intended to take a few months at best have dragged on for years. In many, there was no truly positive outcome—a cessation of aggression rather than a clear “victory” for one side or the other.

    But, in the bargain, countries (even empires) have had their populations decimated and their economies destroyed as a result of the dramatic drain in wealth that’s a by-product of warfare.

    All the more vexing then, that grown-up schoolyard bullies that make careless threats against other countries often succeed in setting off the spark that leads to war.

    At one time, these self-possessed blusterers often needed to carry the public willingness to fight under their own steam. Today, however, they have the extensive support of the media. Every major television news programme can be counted on to offer supportive commentary by retired generals, who often are employed by the military-industrial complex. Further, the news anchors themselves add to the rhetoric like trained chimpanzees, hooting in support.

    It all makes for exciting theatre, but, ultimately, it’s always the people of the nation that pay the price.

    The next time a general effectively claims that Iran or Russia couldn’t hit an elephant, his bluster may, as has occurred so many times in history, prove to be the flash point for the next major war.

    There’s a good chance the U.S. could back its way into a major war soon.
