  MY Macro Econ Observations
Posted by: DaveGillie - 1 hour ago - Forum: Markets, Money & Investing - No Replies

  I see things much of you do not, I am out most days all day interacting with the economy PERSONALLY.

You all talk to a few people, read media (MSM and others)

I know we fight and disagree a LOT, but I love you all and it's fun and interesting.

I keep thinking of a LONG explanation of what I see happening, but, it just gives a lot to argue with (symptoms and names)

SO let me try this very quick SHORT overall. 

A LOT of stuff is really FUCKED UP! Not just what you see and hear about.
People are crazy, production, distribution, motivations, ETC are all totally NUTZ!
why? we've been driven crazy by mass hysteria brainwashing AND /OR ......
People are stuck in the PAST way of doing things, (anything everything) and will NOT be flexible to the new economy!!
MONEY has little helpful FUNCTION anymore. it can't communicate like it used to ,
SERIOUSLY.  Prices are nearly worthless indicaters, wages don't motivate, 
some places it's dissapeared (coins!!) some places have people throwing 10s of thousands of dollars around like it's water (I've seen it, a LOT).
Stores are refusing to sell for no good reason, in addition to out of stocks, SOME are throwing away stuff LOTS,
Some are still closed when they can or should be OPEN.
People are telling lots of LIES (crazy or on purpose) theft crimes are down but destruction crimes are up.

Be warned, we are going to come out of this with NEW WEIRD Systems operating that can't be stopped,
Meaning it sees, that who wins the election in Nov? ABSOLUTELY IRRELEVANT.

Just a tiny report of a ton more things I see
ASK if any particular area intrigues you, I'll try to give you a report.

btw, I'm SO TIRED, working HARD, physically and mentally, time is hard for me to come by.

Provo police charged Jesse Taggart, 33, with attempted aggravated murder, aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury, rioting, threatening the use of a weapon during a fight, criminal mischief, and firing a weapon near a highway. 
That lot will put him away for most of the rest of his life.  Heart

Almost Half Of All Working Age Adults In The U.S. Do Not Have A Job Right Now

June 30, 2020 [/url]

It is very difficult for anyone to deny how bad things have become.  So many firms are suddenly going bankrupt that it is impossible to keep up…
by[url=https://www.silverdoctors.com/tag/michael-snyder/] Michael Snyder
of The Economic Collapse Blog

"There is a lot of talk about the “unemployment rate” these days, but the way that it is calculated has become so convoluted that it is not really that meaningful anymore.  Even during the so-called “good times”, more than 100 million U.S. adults were not working, but we were told that the unemployment rate was the lowest that it had been in decades.  Of course now everything has changed.  Since this pandemic began, more than 47 million Americans have filed new claims for unemployment benefits, and the mainstream media is going to make sure that fear of COVID-19 continues to paralyze our society for the foreseeable future.

In this article, I would like to discuss the employment-population ratio.  According to Wikipedia, the employment-population ratio is “a statistical ratio that measures the proportion of the country’s working age population that is employed”.  I believe that it is a far more accurate measurement than the “unemployment rate” is, and we have seen this ratio move quite dramatically over the past couple of months.  According to CNBC, the employment-population ratio hit 52.8 percent in May, and that means that 47.2 percent of all working age Americans did not have a job…

Quote:Nearly half of the population is still out of a job showing just how far the U.S. labor market has to heal in the wake of the coronavirus.

The employment-population ratio — the number of employed people as a percentage of the U.S. adult population — plunged to 52.8% in May, meaning 47.2% of Americans are jobless, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics. As the coronavirus-induced shutdowns tore through the labor market, the share of population employed dropped sharply from a recent high of 61.2% in January, farther away from a post-war record of 64.7% in 2000.

  83 Tons of Fake Gold Bars

Smile   Woo Hoo.  Or maybe it is Boo-Hoo.

I have seen some fake APMEX  bars like the one in the photo.  They came sealed in plastic, and the seller was in Indiana.


83 Tons Of Fake Gold Bars: Gold Market Rocked By Massive China Counterfeiting Scandal
[Image: picture-5.jpg?itok=LY4e264-]

[Image: fake%20gold%203.jpg?itok=Iw4MmcmJ]

"Over the years, we have periodically reported of the occasional gold bar discovered as counterfeit in Manhattan's Diamond District which instead of containing the yellow precious metal would be filled with gold-plated tungsten or in some cases copper. The news would spark a brief wave of outrage, prompting physical gold holders to run ultrasound spot checks of their inventory, at which point interest would wane and why not: buyer, after all, beware in gold as in every other market, and if someone is spending thousands to buy fake gold, well that's Darwinism in action.

Yet one market which seemed stubbornly immune to any counterfeiting was that of physical gold in China, which was odd considering that over the past decade China had emerged as the world's biggest counterfeiter of various, mostly industrial metals used to secure bank loans, better known as "ghost collateral", and which adding insult to injury, would frequently  be rehypothecated meaning often several banks would have claims to the same (fake) asset.

All that is about to change with the discovery of what may be one of the biggest gold counterfeiting scandal in recent history. And yes, not only does it involve China, but it emerges from a city that has become synonymous for all that is scandalous about China: Wuhan itself.

With that preamble in mind, we introduce readers to Wuhan Kingold Jewelry Inc., a company which as the name implies was founded and operates out of Wuhan, and which describes itself on its website as "A Company with a Golden future."..........

Maybe we need a thread just for media lies.
