James Turk's article Hyperinflation Looms dated April 20, 2010, is based on Quantity Theory of Money (QTM). It draws an analogy between Weimar Germany of 1923 and the United States of 2010. Both precepts are invalid. As far as the QTM is concerned, it suffices to point to the very fact, admitted by Turk, that it is possible to have a shortage of money simultaneously with the overworking of the printing presses. Hyperinflation is not the same as the ultimate inflation of the money supply.

The gist of the tragedy is that commonly held (important) resources will be depleted and will not be replenished. And this doesn't apply only to how the wilds are being ruined by being held in common but also to national treasuries which everyone in a country believes is there for him or her to dip into indiscriminately. And then, with international communities, the tragedy isn't contained by national borders.

So maybe the power elite doesn't have in mind raping and looting Europe and leaving after all, as some in the alternative press have recently been reporting. (Yes, they'll rape and loot, but they'll likely stick around just as we've been suggesting this past week.) Seems like the EU dominant social theme is yet too valuable to discard. No surprise to us, or our readers and talented feedbackers – who've been pitching in of late with inordinate, though not surprising, brilliance.

International currencies are much in the news these days (see other article, this issue) and in this article we will contemplate two rhetorical goalposts that the power elite could use to move the world further on down the field toward a single Western international currency administered by one huge private central bank. (Is that their goal – the ultimate dominant social theme? We think it might be).

Roundabouts in America: Who has the right-of-way? My wife is French and close to half of all roundabouts in the world are on French roads, so we were pleasantly surprised to see them popping up on the American landscape, especially now in Maryland and Virginia.  The problem is a total lack of understanding for most […]

Does California REALLY want to boycott Arizona?

Or just make it “go away”? With the Phoenix (yes, in Arizona) Suns about to host the Los Angeles Lakers in Phoenix (yes, in Arizona), the City of Los Angeles officially weighs in with a 13-1 vote approving yet another boycott of Arizona by a California city. What is really funny here is LA’s Mayor […]

Because the Bell is perhaps the only publication singularly dedicated to reporting on the power elite's dominant social themes and how they are promoted and faring, our coverage often veers off from both the mainstream media's AND that of the alternative press. Additionally, having identified the Internet itself – comprising the world's second major communication's revolution (the Gutenberg press was the first one) – as a significant obstacle to power elite global centralization plans, we

We will take a back seat to no one when it comes to relief that the horrible modern era of Labour governance is over for Britain. We are happy that we will not have to read about the sociopathic ramblings of Gordon Brown anymore, or watch as he and/or his ministers lie their way through another press conference.

Ron Paul speaks to the House about his concern regarding the currency crisis. He reviews the economic situation and the audit the fed bill briefly. He talks about the bailout of Greece and how money is created out of thin air and then transferred to banking ‘friends’. He is clearly concerned and continues to educate and inform and encourage an audit of the federal reserve system.
