Nice little talk about Bitcoin with Jeffrey Tucker. And this is a cool site: listen to Bitcoin live. Both those who think Bitcoin is just a bubble and those who think it is the future can enjoy listening to it.

I always enjoy these videos.

Near the end of this video (18:50), Armstrong mentions the repressed history of Coxey’s Army, which was the inspiration for The Wizard of Oz. That is mentioned on page 37 of Dissolving Dollars. I never knew about the Coxey’s Army story until I was researching to write Dissolving Dollars. Worth mentioning are a number of very odd synchronicities relating me with Jacob Coxey. Coxey lived in Massillon, Ohio. Massillon is where my mother’s side of the family is from, so all the old-timers from my mother’s family knew Coxey. My great grandfather actually beat Coxey to become mayor of Massillon during the Great Depression. My mother spent a lot of time in Coxey’s old house in Massillon, since she had a friend that lived there many years after Coxey died. And a few years ago when I was in Ohio I decided to go to the library and research Coxey a bit. I ended up going to the cemetery to see his grave, and oddly enough I found out he was buried next to a relative from my father’s side of the family. See this picture I took.
I also have some weird synchronicities linking me to William McKinley, but that’s another story…also related to monetary reform.

A blog I like is armstrongeconomics.com. So, I thought I’d link a few posts of his from the last month and post a talk he did over a year ago. Armstrong isn’t about predicting a stock market collapse or hyperinflation. But what he says makes total sense. Countries with a market for their bonds don’t hyperinflate; what they do instead is tax the country to death. Panic selling of markets happens when interest rates are at a peak. Expecting a panic crash anytime soon with interest rates this low would mean negative interest rates. So anyway, I recommend taking a look at Armstrong.

Despite what things like the Federal-Reserve-funded (0% interest rates) algo-driven PSYOP tool known as the stock market may attempt to indicate on any given day, the economy is still full of headwinds for everyone who isn’t part of the corporatist class. And by corporatist class I mean all people whose incomes come primarily thanks to the many forms of government force. That class includes a lot of people these days both rich and poor, which is itself a big part of why the recovery is a delusion. This video presentation gives a good overview of the reality rather than the hopeful propaganda.
