Guyana & the Future


QUESTION: Hi Martin, thanks for including little Guyana in your blog today. I was born in Canada, but my parents emigrated from Guyana decades ago. I haven’t been back yet. Nevertheless, I am eager to see great things become of the country, have been tracking the oil industry developments there, and am invested in it as well. I want to see this country elevate out of poverty as a result of all of this but I am concerned about lack of strong and moral leadership and corruption. If you don’t mind me asking, what makes you so confident that democracy will rule out? Growth is growth, but all we have to do is look across the pond to Africa to see the mix of growth and corruption!
Thanks as always sir – your teachings and insights have reshaped me many times over.
Regards, D

ANSWER: I am not certain that Guyana will be the perfect democracy. South America has historically had a problem with corruption in government. The US sanctions against Venezuela are really stupid. The economy was turning down dramatically and the government has done everything possible against the people. The US sanctions merely give people an excuse to point to the US as the cause of the economic decline despite the fact that the sanctions were put on in response to the events and not before them. I am opposed to sanctions anyhow because they never seem to work. They boosted the support for Putin instead of causing the people to blame Putin. This is really brain dead.

Nevertheless, simply because you can invest in Guyana is a major difference in comparison to Venezuela. There will be corruption. That seems to be systemic in South/Latin America, but it is also a rising problem globally. Hopefully, they will still keep the free market as long as they get their fair share under the table unlike Venezuela. We have added the currency to Socrates.

Manipulating the World Economy – COMING SOON


“Manipulating the World Economy” has been printed and shipped to Amazon. We are hoping to have the links up for Christmas. I have tried to make this an interesting textbook on the world economy and how it functions. Every page of this hardcover book is printed in full color. I have illustrated everything I could get my hands on, including old newspaper articles from contemporary events, so you can read what I read. This illustrates the problems we have with governments and how they have lost control of events going forward.

  

I have tried to cover all the important subjects such as economic theories, Philips’ curve, supply & demand, random walks, defining what is really money, banks and their role in the creation of money, capital flows that overpower domestic policy objectives, taxation, a history of contagions, Modern Monetary Theory, and class warfare – among many more subjects.


These hardbound, full color books will make great Christmas gifts. They will be priced under $100.

We will let everyone know the moment they go on sale in Amazon.

The Mother of all Financial Crises


COMMENT: Sir,

While taking a break from reading the Repo Report, I came across these words written by Albert Einstein before he passed away

“Not one statesman in a position of responsibility has dared to pursue the only course that holds out any promise of peace…” he wrote. “For a statesman to follow such a course would be tantamount to political suicide. Political passions, once they have been fanned into flame, exact their victims.”

I fear we are going to crash and burn as you have said

Keep up the good work

DK

REPLY: That is a very good quote. It is so true. All the disinformation circulating around about this Repo Crisis one must question can they really be that stupid? This is really the Mother of all Financial Crises which will impact everything it touches. This will make the 2007-2009 financial crisis look like a trial run.There is no politician who will stand up and talk about this crisis nor will they dare to even ask pertinent questions for fear what will be revealed.

This is why this report does not end with this report alone. We will update it next year as everything unfolds. So it is more like a subscription to this catastrophe.

Conspiracy Against Trump


QUESTION: Are you familiar with Qanon and if so what are your thoughts.
KJF

ANSWER: No I do not believe it. That is a conspiracy theory that there is a worldwide cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles who rule the world, essentially, and they control everything. They control politicians, and they control the media. They control Hollywood, and they cover up their existence, essentially. And they would have continued ruling the world, were it not for the election of President Donald Trump. I do not agree with this idea. I think it goes way over the top.

This is again using labels very loosely. Pedophilia is a sexual attraction to prepubescent children. Ephebophilia is the primary sexual interest in mid-to-late adolescents, generally ages 13 to 17 post-puberty. Jeffrey Epstein was engaged in Ephebophilia but perhaps for reasons people have overlooked. He seems to have ensnared famous people into this act for the reason of having power over them in terms of blackmail. If he were truly a pure Ephebophilia for himself,  it is unlikely he would have been so open about it bringing in people like Bill Clinton and other high profile people.

Epstein is dead BECAUSE he would have implicated so many people and most likely the prosecutor did not understand what he was stepping into. Being a simple Ephebophilia in al single personal context would have been a feather in the prosecutor’s cap. The law does not distinguish between Pedophilia and Ephebophilia. However, Epstein had way too many blackmail cards in his deck he believed provided him with protection. They came back on him for there was no way to bargain his way out after being publicly charged in such a manner. The government could NEVER put him on trial so he just had to go.

From this perspective, the plot to power is still that of an individual – Epstein. I have never encountered any group with designs of controlling the world. That is the stuff for megalomania characters in fictional action movies. So why do they have to be Satan-worshiping pedophiles is beyond me. That seems to be just a tactic to dehumanize the people they are talking about.

Pedophiles tend to be sick people, to begin with to the point I seriously doubt they would be able to even fathom controlling the world. Underage post-puberty girls/boys does not involve pedophiles – that is children like 5 to 10-year-old children. That is more of a mental disorder. I believe Epstein was probably into blackmail more than anything else for strategic reasons. I seriously doubt that if Epstein was engaged in pedophilia he would have had as many people joining him. For strategic blackmail reasons, he merely sought to get people involved in Ephebophilia and then used that perhaps to get favors and money. I seriously doubt that many can tell the difference between at 17-year-old girl and a 19-year-old just looking at them these days. So I would think he was deliberately trying to get girls under 18 to provide the means for blackmail.

I think this Qanon conspiracy is just spinning things too far. There are people out to get Trump, absolutely. But I do not see them as Satan-worshiping pedophiles, just power corrupt individuals.
