    Wow, thanks Ilargi. That was very insightful. I tend to think that it’s either them (i.e. China) or us (i.e. west) that’s gonna get screwed but we is more like anybody on the wrong side of the economical apartheid wall of low interest rates, like Max Keiser likes to say, either here or in China.

    Hmm… the commenting system sanitized the shortened youtube link [1] above and took out the jump to minute 18 and 31 seconds where Jim and Max have a short discussion on the US dollar. I’ll try again with the non-shortened link [2] below:

    Regarding US dollar, I found a short discussion between Jim Rogers and Max Keiser. Jim agrees with you Ilargi [1]. He expects to go quite higher and maybe into bubble territory when the markets go belly up.

    Thank you Ilargi for condensing everything into this post. I saw all the articles that you reference by themselves but I did not, or perhaps did not want to, realize the severity. This is going to be an epic debt deflation.

    The comments from Carney are, to me, quite concerning. I think that is possible that he means it just not for everyone. He said [1] that the issues are fixed, the markets are simpler and fairer and that the too-big-to-fail banks are now capitalized. This to me could be a message indicating that the central banks will go full steam ahead acquiring real assets in all markets with printed money [2] effectively eliminating any big crash. I don’t know much about the banks capitalization but it could mean that the banks under the FSB and others are now protected so that any other small bank could be allowed to go under.

    This would mean that the people that say that the markets will go to the moon [3] may be right and if your savings are not in the market they’ll be destroyed.

    It’s a scary scenario where the establishment has given up concealing its machinations and it’s all done in the open for the good of us all.

    Ilargi, what’s your view for the US dollar if the central banks will not allow markets to go down by doing QE-to-infinity, buying assets left and right?

    Hi Raúl, here is a very interesting article that you may have already linked to but just in case:

    Why Poverty Is Like a Disease
    Emerging science is putting the lie to American meritocracy.
    https://nautil.us/issue/47/consciousness/why-poverty-is-like-a-disease

    The science of the biological effects of the stresses of poverty is in its early stages. Still, it has presented us with multiple mechanisms through which such effects could happen, and many of these admit an inheritable component. If a pregnant woman, for example, is exposed to the stresses of poverty, her fetus and that fetus’ gametes can both be affected, extending the effects of poverty to at least her grandchildren. And it could go further.

    Raúl, here is an interesting book review:

    America is Regressing into a Developing Nation for Most People
    https://www.ineteconomics.org/perspectives/blog/america-is-regressing-into-a-developing-nation-for-most-people

    There are a few observations that I find very interesting and that ‘knew’ but couldn’t express such as:

    A majority of the low-wage sector is white, with blacks and Latinos making up the other part, but politicians learned to talk as if the low-wage sector is mostly black because it allowed them to appeal to racial prejudice, which is useful in maintaining support for the structure of the dual economy — and hurting everyone in the low-wage sector.

    Sidenote: I found this through Hacker News [1] which I read often mostly for the comments and analisys on the story more than for the story itself. But this one in particular was flagged, meaning that it broke one or more guidelines according to a moderator. This to say that it may not be as good as I think but I personally find it very informative.

    The article at nycaviation [1] (see my other comment) says:

    The creator of the circular runway concept even admits that he was “inspired by watching scary crosswind landings on YouTube,” not from any challenge or need that the aviation industry is actually facing.

    And its easy to take it seriously since it comes from someone at the Netherlands Aerospace Centre. So indeed it appears that it was a brain fart.

    Hi Ilargi. There’s an article at nycaviation [1] that uses what seems to be valid and informed arguments to show that the circular runway is not practical at all. I’m sad that my first comment at TAE is to show a different opinion but I felt that it was important to bring your attention to it. I’m a loyal reader and in my opinion your reasoning, i.e., Nicole’s and yours, is correct if not accurate. Your use of morality in your reasoning in addition to logic and facts is what leads me to believe so. Please, keep the hard work.
