Is a correction in stock indices really underway? Is that allowed? I don’t think so. Rulers Bernanke and Draghi have been quick to put their foot down and stomp every wave of selling. I suspect this time will not be any different.
Stocks are clearly in a bubble that in my opinion, has now exceeded every bubble ever blown in history. Stocks have been puffed up by central banker intervention, manipulation, and inflation via currency expansion. Every now and then, stock prices threaten to crumble under the weight of reality. That is, everyone realizes that trying to borrow our way out of debt is insane, ridiculous, and will end in catastrophe. An economy supported by central bank infusions is not a sustainable economy. Stock prices should reflect this realization with a plummet. We are currently in one of those periods. Will the bubble now burst?
I doubt it. The US election is just a few weeks away. The American public will go to the polls and unleash upon the world another clueless puppet of the elite banking cartel to herd the sheople. Yet, most voters likely feel very strongly that their candidate can make things better. In the meantime, the current regime will make sure that all economic news is good for the next few weeks. Of course it is.
The latest news this week is that Q3 GDP grew by 2% in the US. That number was driven by a 2% increase in consumer spending and an 8.5% gain in ‘long lasting goods’. Of course, the federal government kicked in with increased spending of 9.6%. Hasn’t the regime leader been telling the world that the US was ‘cutting’ spending? Obviously speeches are only for convenience of propaganda. Besides, the federal government spends more than a trillion than it takes in. What’s another 9.6% boost in spending? When we are already buried under tons of debt, what difference can a few more shovel-fulls on top of our heads make? Well, the regime had a 2% GDP growth number to support so they made sure the numbers were there!
However, the 8.5% gain in ‘long lasting goods’ was very curious in a mendacious way. Most companies that produce ‘long lasting goods’ have been reporting a weakening demand story. In fact, corporate spending on capital goods decreased. So, we are to believe that the very people that run businesses are reducing their spending at the corporate level while they increase their own spending when they get home? And if so, wouldn’t their spending at home, as consumers, drive up demand for goods at the very companies that are reducing their spending? This is also quite odd considering that everyone on the planet agrees that economies everywhere on the globe are slowing. Warren Buffet said so. Shippers of goods say so. Regimes except for the US regime say so.
While the US pretends to be a free nation, something very telling happened this past week. The presidential debates featuring the so-called third party candidates took place with Larry King moderating. Didn’t see it? Didn’t hear about it? Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson was brilliant and so far superior intellectually from the main party’s offerings that he almost appeared to be a different species. That is, a species with functioning brain cells. But here is the only thing everyone in the world should know. The debate for the presidency of the United States of America for these third party candidates was held on one television network. That network was the Al-Jazeera network. God forbid the American public hearing the truth. God forbid the American public overcome their profound ignorance.
Thus, we have a stock bubble that is, and has been, orchestrated by central bankers. My guess is this cartel will not let the Dow slip below 13000 else the dopes that have been duped will realize that they have willingly been incarcerated by their ignorance and gluttony. And, Warden Bernanke has apparently decided to retire from the Fed in 2014. There is no way he will step down with a bear eating patrolling Wall Street. Look for stock indices to rise this week.
