The Top 12 Signs That The U.S. Economy Is Heading Toward Another Recession

Is the U.S. economy steamrolling toward another recession? Will 2014 turn out to be a major “turning point” when we look back on it?

The Math That Predicted the Revolutions Sweeping the Globe Right Now

It’s happening in Ukraine, Venezuela, Thailand, Bosnia, Syria, and beyond. Revolutions, unrest, and riots are sweeping the globe. The near-simultaneous eruption of violent protest can seem random and chaotic; inevitable symptoms of an unstable world. But there’s at least one common thread between the disparate nations, cultures, and people in conflict, one element that has demonstrably proven to make these uprisings more likely: high global food prices.

29 Percent Of All U.S. Adults Under The Age Of 35 Are Living With Their Parents

According to a stunning Gallup survey that was recently released, nearly three out of every ten adults in the United States under the age of 35 are still living at home with Mom and Dad. This closely lines up with a Pew Research Center analysis of Census data that looked at a younger sample of Americans which found that 36 percent of Americans 18 to 31 years old were still living with their parents. That was the highest level that had ever been recorded.

America’s “We” Problem

America has a serious “We” problem — as in “Why should we pay for them?” The question is popping up all over the place. It underlies the debate over extending unemployment benefits to the long-term unemployed and providing food stamps to the poor.

Government Lays Groundwork To Confiscate Your 401k and IRA: “This Is Happening”

Government Lays Groundwork To Confiscate Your 401k and IRA: “This Is Happening”

This morning Reuters obtained a leaked proposal disclosing that European Union officials are looking for new and innovative ways to fund their immense debt levels. They’re no longer turning exclusively to central bankers to simply print more money as needed. Because last year’s bank bail-in forcing the confiscation of funds from average depositors in Cyprus worked so well, EU regulators and bankers have determined that they’ll use a similar method to fund their future endeavors. In a nutshell, and in Reuters’ own words, “the savings of the European Union’s 500 million citizens could be used to fund long-term investments to boost the economy and help plug the gap left by banks since the financial crisis, an EU document says.” The solution? “The Commission will ask the bloc’s insurance watchdog in the second half of this year for advice on a possible draft law “to mobilize more personal pension savings for long-term financing”, the document said.” Mobilize, once again, is a more palatable word than, say, confiscate. This is what happens when governments run out of money. For all intents and purposes, a similar groundwork is being laid right here in America.

Presence over Profit: The Psychology of Intrinsic and Instrumental Value

Presence over Profit: The Psychology of Intrinsic and Instrumental Value

Money is a pure abstraction, about which we have some unbelievable superstitions and mental blocks. Even worse, it’s an abstraction of an abstraction; one that inculcates a sense of guilt. When money becomes the goal of life, we tend to confuse it with happiness and pleasure. When we see others without money we tend to confuse their poverty with unhappiness and displeasure, thereby creating guilt. Most of this happens subconsciously. But it’s a natural psychological reaction that plays upon our powerful system of empathy, which leads to our thinking that we should do something to relieve the suffering of others while also assuaging our own guilt.

Economic Elite Announce Plan to Replace Human Labor with Machines

Economic Elite Announce Plan to Replace Human Labor with Machines

Speaking at the recent Davos economic conference – widely considered to be the elite economic forum to discuss trends and political strategy – an expert in artificial intelligence and machine learning, Jeremy Howard, had some stunning announcements that indicate a major shift in employment is set to occur very soon. As Howard states in the video below, we have hit a critical threshold where machine intelligence is performing better than even the leading experts in the fields of medicine, science, and banking among others. This has vast ramifications, as this crossover coincides also with the replacement of skilled and non-skilled human labor with robots. Between the two events, people from all economic classes are being threatened with replacement in an unprecedented way. It is being called technological unemployment – a type of permanent unemployment that greatly exacerbates our current recession/depression, because the lost jobs most likely will never return.
