It is time to build your new METRICS

According to Investopedia, Metrics are measures of quantitative assessment commonly used for assessing, comparing, and tracking performance or production. Generally, a group of metrics will typically be used to build a dashboard that management or analysts review on a regular basis to maintain performance assessments, opinions, and business strategies. There are various definitions, but in this post I intend you consider metrics as Your measure of value for your labor and your assets. What you will willingly exchange to others for things you value more. Now is a wonderful time to establish against the currency that has been the world standard metric for a century. While we are accustomed to using dollars and cents, as they decline towards uselessness […]

crypto coincidence

Nobody familiar with this website believes in coincidences such as these. Outside of lamestream media propaganda is news of crypto currency founders, directors and operators inexplicable, “coincidentally” dying in the last few months. How do we read this? Russian billionaire Vyacheslav Taran was killed when the helicopter he was traveling in crashed near Monaco. According to the Mail, the crash happened in good weather and another unnamed would-be passenger canceled their journey at the last minute. I am reminded of the unused suites on the Titanic’s fateful voyage … reserved for the people who ended up creating the Feral Reserve with themselves at the top. The founder of Hong Kong-based digital asset company Amber Group Tiantian Kullander died suddenly in […]

401Ks turning to dust

Yesterday afternoon I produced a video follow-up to yesterday morning’s Bitterroot Bugle post The Hyperinflation Survival Guide. I share that recording here. I want you to survive, possibly even thrive in the upcoming New Economy. Fortunes are made and lost in every economic upheaval throughout history. There have been many. All were the product of greedy, selfish, even malicious people at the top. Often the uprising of slaves and peasants violently took the lives of their tormentors. That has a certain symmetry to it that serves well to warn a generation or two of would-be sociopaths. It would, in its own way be a nice punctuation mark to the end of the schemes they cooked up. Regardless of punctuation, […]

The Hyperinflation Survival Guide

Money changers carry loads of low value notes in wheelbarrows on Somalian streets –This was the title of a book published in 1989, sponsored by Harry E. Figgie, Jr, chairman and CEO of Figgie International. Concerned about the future operating environment for his company while the clear trajectory of the world’s central banksters was to print their paper currencies to death, he sent a team to study environments that recently experienced, or were currently suffering through exactly that. He shared what they found in Bolivia, Brazil and Argentina in a short, succinct book, The Hyperinflation Survival Guide. While Amazon (linked) shows it as published in 2003, my hardcopy is copyright 1989. One of the more interesting findings were complete changes […]

The Veezuh business model

A funny thing happened to me while researching a possible upgrade to my wire-feed welder. I am very happy with the Hobart I bought a few years ago, except when I work with thicker steel … as it turns out, quite a bit of my metal work is with heavier metal. In those cases what is called the “duty cycle” is a problem. For every one minute of welding, my machine needs five or ten minutes to cool down. I found that advances in electronics has reached into wire-feed welder design. Now for about the price of the old, solid, reliable light-duty, but heavy weight transformer-based welder I can have an inverter-based welder with close to 100% duty cycle on […]

Mises Institute videos for beginners

Mises was founded to promote and educate about real economics, also known as Austrian Economics. Completely unlike the voodoo sold to the masses in order that the grand theft can be hidden, Austrian Economics is actually easy to understand, helps make sense out of economies, fits with our human behavior experiences and (horror of horrors) exposes the fraudulent banksters and political prostitutes. In a series of videos Mises.org breaks the fundamentals down into comprehensible bite-sized pieces for kids and adults. They are available for free to watch or download for later viewing at the two pages linked below. Economics for Beginners What Has Government Done to Our Money? […]

economics, money, inflation – videos

The economy is going to hit you HARD … SOON. In these video clips, and yesterday’s post image collection: economics, money, inflation, banksters, I offer supporting evidence, proofs, visual examples and historical precedents. The global economic collapse is unavoidable. The historical precedence and replica we are in cannot be rationalized away. However, you can do some things TODAY that will reduce your pain tomorrow. Understand what is going on, and what to do about it now. My toolset and skillset forced me to break the video into two parts. I cannot justify upgrading my video recorder for the little bits I do. Obviously PART 1 on the left should be watched before PART 2 below. I produced these because […]

the barter/exchange economy

The fiat currencies of the world are all on the last pages of their run. This is no accident, but regardless of cause we get to figure out life in the next phase. For our entire lives we used the USofA dollar to denominate our transactions. Groceries, clothing, energy, labor, housing, luxuries, savings, retirement needs, investments … every transaction and resource decision was measured in dollars. That system is about to seize up. Dystopian books and movies have all shown us how the banksters intend the next phase to look. Your electronic currency will be transacted via subcutaneous RFID, retina scans, facial recognition devices or others. In all cases, the controllers turn off the protagonist’s money supply with the […]

inflation report published

The USofA Department of Labor issued a report on 2021 price changes thus far. Most people see the cost of everything rising. “Everything is getting more expensive.” I visualize the dollar and all other fiat currencies in the world going down. FAST. It is like being on an escalator going down. You can see the floors rising relative to your position, but you know they are not. The squeeze is on producers to keep the majority of their customers from feeling the sticker shock. It cannot be helped as their costs are also rising as their dollars lose value just as fast as ours. You cannot drop endless quantities of paper money out of helicopters without devaluing every single one […]

What determines silver and gold prices?

The New York Commodities Exchange (COMEX) is the world’s primary clearing house for exchanges of paper products that supposedly represent silver and gold. While it is possible to purchase the physical product there, 250 exchanges involving no metal at all take place for every single real metal transaction. These paper imitations are used to RIG — oops, I mean SET the price of silver and gold. The very same frauds who print the near-useless paper currencies of the world use their paper power to crush price discovery and our ability to know what silver and gold are really worth compared to their fiat currencies. This gross depression of the real price is quite handy for them as they trade […]

borrowing VS saving VS stocking up

It is no accident that normal people do not understand economics whether it is the macro-economics of nations and the world, the micro-economics of their own household or anywhere in between. If enough of us did, those living off their arbitrary printing of fiat currencies would hang from the lampposts by the morning after the mass awakening. In the last couple of days I found myself explaining borrowing money that the banksters print out of thin air so they can “earn” regular interest payments from our meager incomes. I realized I should develop a picture that would better explain how this all works on a personal level. I did that with the two charts on the right. Since it […]

Hush money received – what does it mean?

While the politicians and lamestream media call it “stimulus”, the only thing it is stimulating is the dollar’s power-dive into worthlessness. They genned-up a gazillion new dollars out of thin air and sent a token to the people ultimately paying for it. Now every dollar that was already out there has a smaller share of the value they used to have. Visualize a 100-gallon aquarium with a bright red gallon of Kool-Aid in it. Add a gallon of water and the redness is diluted a bit. Add another two gallons and you see it is quite a bit more pale than the original drink. Keep that up for a hundred years and you would be hard-pressed to know what […]

What does “economics” mean to you?

This nice little three-minute video is a great introduction to the basics of economics and the relationship between real economics and liberty. Mises is a university, a publishing house, a public library. a research institution and a beacon of enlightenment removing shadows of flim-flam that dominate our public institutions, media and politics. Below is their overview of this video and why they produced it. – Ted Economics for Beginners is our continuing series of short animated videos designed to help students of all ages begin to think like an economist. The next installment takes a look at the ever more relevant topic of socialism. This three-and-a-half-minute video addresses a variety of economic problems that arise in a controlled economy, […]
