An Interesting China Analysis By Jim Chanos (and a little more by me…)

Here’s a recent interview with Jim Chanos on the critical state of the Chinese economic picture. Chanos typically makes his money short-selling overpriced markets and he’s “all over” China like stink on a pig; has been for well over a year.

Banking Video by Attorney Gary Fielder

Gary Fielder, a Denver attorney, has put together one of the best educational videos I have ever seen detailing the monetary history and the ongoing struggle for control of our nation.

The Crushing Potential of Financial Derivatives

George Soros, one of the world’s foremost investor-speculators, has said many times that he stays away from financial derivatives because “no one understands them”. In the world of finance, derivatives might be comparable to the theoretical study of linear particle acceleration in nuclear physics. Such theories appear to be “understood” mainly based on current assumptions […]
