Germany is positioning itself in Europe to dominate the continent. Consumerism versus production: Americans are trapped. Words on the tax cut. Flynn: used as a pawn to get Trump. (It won’t work). Consequences of failed, new businesses. ‘Blaming the Russians’ for Hillary’s shortcomings. The congressional cover-up of sexual misdeeds, aided and abetted by the U.S. government.
Being prepared for what’s coming. Most people won’t be. Follow-up on last week’s extended show. Enhanced creativity as a result of doing nothing. Morphing from advising people to emigrate to giving you practical advice, assuming the decision to do so has already been made. The colossal danger in the markets today, led by bitcoin.
Why ‘consuming’ doesn’t cut the mustard. The longest sentence uttered in the English language. The dubious connection between diets and longevity. How to make a good impression. The pluses of mimicking other people and ingratiating yourself. The UN monitor on extreme poverty visits the U.S. Another attempt to explain bitcoin. China’s misleading economic statistics bode ill for the world. Johnny Mueller’s new January seminar in Guatemala.
This is an extended show, exclusively given over to a discussion of the perfidious nature of American bellicose foreign policy, especially since the end of the Cold War. It is detailed and relentless, pulling no punches. I hope this will encourage some of you to donate to the show at the ‘donate’ button on the left of the Podbean page. The information in the show is priceless and most of you will not know much of what I have to say.

Increasing number of consumer debt defaults.
