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 […]

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 […]

The future of transportation

As THEY continue destruction of our lovely world, we have few intelligent choices before us. Of course we could hang our expectations on the hook that what has always been the way of the world will continue to be so. That one only works properly for those whose views span centuries and aren’t limited to the tales published by the victors. Suffice to say that is not common. All of the world’s interlinked fiat currencies are turning to dust. Even less reliable and more controlled e-currencies are waiting in the wings to be trotted out when the masses are deemed ready to accept the change. Food, energy, hardware, and more are about to be nearly unobtainable. On to the […]

Doctor Copper issues warning

Clever and/or knowledgeable economists (aka: those who understand from the Austrian school rather than the Kensian school of voodoo economics) often call copper prices “Doctor Copper”. Copper is so widely used in construction and fabrication that orders for copper fall just before the rest of the economy falls. Your first lesson in Austrian Economics is that supply and demand determine prices. Thus a price plummet in copper is a clear indicator that the rest of the economy will be right behind as if attached to the sinking ship with an unbreakable anchor chain. Hang onto your hats … Put your seat and tray in the upright position … Here we go … […]

We are entering those Hard Times I’ve been warning about

I know, I know, I have been warning about economic collapse for a long, long time without you ever having your personal economy die. The owners of all the money in the world have managed to keep their illusion alive longer than I or many other quite expert analysts thought possible. In that time they have also managed to corral nearly all of the land and assets on Earth. Nice for them. Even they knew this illusion would collapse, in fact they are banking on it. As several of their top-tier mouthpieces have publicly pronounced, “You will own nothing, and you will be happy”. This is the world Aldous Huxley described in his 1932 novel Brave New World.

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 […]

Farming Insider Warns The Coming Food Shortages Are Going To Be Far Worse Than We’re Being Told

by Tyler Durden Authored by Michael Snyder via TheMostImportantNews.com, The information that I am about to share with you is extremely alarming, but I have always endeavored to never sugarcoat things for my readers. Right now, there are shortages of certain items in grocery stores across the United States, and food supplies have gotten very tight all over the globe. I have repeatedly warned that this is just the beginning, but I didn’t realize how dire things have already gotten until I received an email from a farming insider that I have corresponded with over the years. I asked him if I could publicly share some of the information that he was sharing with me, and he said that […]

multiple flash points are near

Greg Hunter and Paul Craig Roberts put on another great USA Watchdog show that I share below. Both have solid credentials in multiple national and geopolitical arenas that they bring to bear here. Leading off their discussion is the ramping up of Russia VS USofA tensions to a dangerous level. The Russian government called a meeting to explain the danger as those running the sock-puppet administration increase the threat level too far beyond a tolerable level to be ignored. The ex-assistant Treasury Secretary for multiple administrations also shares some very stark warnings about the USofA and world economies as they appear to be irreversibly approaching an irrecoverable abyss. No expert discussion today would be complete without touching on COVID and […]

Hi Ho Silver and away

139 Billion dollars in circulation June 1959 5,210 Billion in circulation June 2020 In 1959, the USofA pie was sliced into 139 billion pieces with each dollar representing one piece. In 2020, the pie is sliced into 5,210 billion pieces with each dollar representing one piece. THAT is inflation. THAT is why everything seems more expensive. In 40 years, they shrunk the dollar by 37.5 times. Your dollar wedgies are tiny, tiny, tiny. The difference in value between 1/139B and 1/5,210B was stolen by the global central bankers, and used to buy news media, politicians, farms and businesses. Meanwhile we actually worked for our rapidly shrinking slices of the pie. Their dollar will be worth zero very soon. Gold, […]

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 […]
