Most Major Papers Continue Circ Decline

For those holding out for some improvement in print circulation, this morning brings disappointment. The Audit Bureau of Circulations released the latest figures for the six- month period ending September 2008 and the report shows major drops in circulation at the big metros.

According to ABC for the 507 newspapers reporting in this period, daily circulation slipped 4.6% to 38,165,848 copies. For the 571 papers, Sunday dropped 4.8% to 43,631,646 copies.

For comparison purposes, in September 2007 reporting period, daily circ fell 2.6% and Sunday was down 4.6%.


$16.3 trillion in stock value lost since Sept. 1

Pessimism about the global economy deepened yesterday as fresh evidence of a worldwide slowdown showed up in feeble corporate profit reports from Asia, sinking commodities prices, and a scramble by emerging economies to prop up their sagging currencies and avert credit defaults.

Foreclosure filings spike 71%

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- The housing crisis still has a choke hold on America: In September, 81,312 homes were lost to foreclosure, according to a report released Thursday.

RealtyTrac, an online marketer of foreclosed properties, said that 851,000 homes have been repossessed by lenders since August 2007.

Follow the M3 Money

As Wikipedia states, our money supply has three large components. M1 is physical currency circulating in the economy plus demand deposits (checking accounts). This measure is used by economists to try and quantify the amount of money in circulation. M1 is the most liquid measure of money supply since it only contains cash and assets quickly usable for conversion to currency.

Stocks dive on belief global recession is at hand

Webmaster's Commentary:

Wall Street joined world stock markets in a precipitous plunge Friday, with the Dow Jones industrials dropping more than 400 points in early trading and all the major indexes falling more than 4 percent. The growing belief that the world will suffer a punishing economic recession has investors furiously dumping stocks.

Futures halted as trading enters 'panic mode'

American stock futures trading was halted on Friday morning following deep declines on the Dow Jones Industrial Average and Standard & Poor's 500 indices as global stock markets plunged.

Futures contracts fell more than 6% triggering a "limit down" suspension of selling on either index, as S&P 500 futures sank to 855.20, according to Bloomberg News. Nasdaq futures were also halted.

All three contracts lost the maximum amount permissible before the start of futures trading in the United States.

Qui est derrière la crise financière?

Qui est derrière la crise financière?

La manipulation des marchés et les spéculateurs institutionnels

Le marché est fortement manipulé. La force motrice derrière la crise se situe dans les opérations spéculatives. Le système de « régulation privé » sert les intérêts des spéculateurs.

Alors que la plupart des individus investisseurs enregistrent des pertes lorsque le marché s’effondre, les spéculateurs institutionnels gagnent de l'argent lorsque se produit un effondrement financier.

En fait, le déclenchement d’un effondrement du marché peut s’avérer une entreprise très rentable.

Derrière la panique, la guerre financière pour la future domination bancaire mondiale

Les anecdotes dramatiques de la crise financière et la panique provoquée servent délibérément à certains groupes d’influence à façonner le futur visage de la finance mondiale.

Wealth gap creating a social time bomb

Growing inequality in US cities could lead to widespread social unrest and increased mortality, says a new United Nations report on the urban environment.

n a survey of 120 major cities, New York was found to be the ninth most unequal in the world and Atlanta, New Orleans, Washington, and Miami had similar inequality levels to those of Nairobi, Kenya Abidjan and Ivory Coast. Many were above an internationally recognised acceptable "alert" line used to warn governments.

Webmaster's Commentary:

"....Social unrest"; what a completely reasonable excuse for the introduction of martial law in this country!

Global Europe Anticipation Bulletin: Global systemic crisis Alert - Summer 2009: The US government defaults on its debt.

Therefore, as we repeated it on and on since 2006, this crisis is far more important, in terms of impact and outcome, than the 1929 crisis. Historically, we are the very first players, witnesses and/or victims of a crisis affecting the whole planet, in a situation of unprecedented interdependence of countries (resulting from twenty years of globalisation) and people (the level of urbanization - and related dependence for all the basic needs – water, food, energy… - is also unprecedented).

U.S. Dollar Currency Collapse Within 30 Days

My reaction: I am certain the US is less than a month away from a currency collapse. The fed and treasury are not even taking the time to think at this point: they are just throwing money and guarantees at each new problem that pops up without worrying about the consequence. Since no one can imagine a currency collapse, there isn't the political will to take the painful steps needed to prevent it (reign in fed and let institutions fail). The forces and trends behind the financial collapse are too powerful to stop.

IMF may need to "print money" as crisis spreads

The International Monetary Fund may soon lack the money to bail out an ever growing list of countries crumbling across Eastern Europe, Latin America, Africa, and parts of Asia, raising concerns that it will have to tap taxpayers in Western countries for a capital infusion or resort to the nuclear option of printing its own money.

Crisis Brings Opportunity. Here's hoping we don't blow it this time.

Have no doubt, by the end of this week or the next, life will have changed for good, there will be no going back to the way it was. Period.
If the World is expecting to have it's cake and eat it , forget about it. So what's going to be the logical outcome of such a sytemic failure ?

The real tragedy of this financial crisis is that people will die

The harsh reality of the economic fallout isn't that Joe the plumber can't buy his business or that people's retirement funds are being lost or that unemployment is rising; the harsh reality is that people will die.

Webmaster's Commentary:

An estimated 7 million people starved to death in the United States during the Great Depression.


Nor'easter May Bring Foot of Snow to Eastern U.S.

A gusty storm dumped rain and the first snow of the season from Virginia to Maine today, closing schools and roads and further delaying Major League Baseball's World Series.

Webmaster's Commentary:

When I was a kid living in New Hampshire, the first real snow usually fell about Thanksgiving. I don't recall ever once having to go trick or treat in the snow!

One dead, thousands without power and the first October snow in London in 74 YEARS as Arctic blast sweeps across UK

Webmaster's Commentary:

"B-b-b-b-u-t-t-t-t Al G-g-g-g-ore said-d-d-d-d-d w-w-w-we w-w-w-w-ere g-g-g-g-gett-t-t-t-ting w-w-w-warmer!"

Even London was hit by a light dusting last night - the first time the capital has seen snow in October since 1934.

While the capital woke to its first October blanketing since 1934, the rest of the South had its first pre-Halloween snowfalls since the 1970s.

'The last time snow was on the ground in the South East in October was 1974, while London hasn't had October snow on the ground for 74 years.'

In 1934, Britain was in the fifth year of the Great Depression - an economic downturn fuelled by greedy bankers and incompetent economists.

Global Cooling: Record Low Temperatures Hit America

Record low temperatures have hit dozens of areas across America as a natural period of global cooling accelerates, leaving man-made global warming advocates with egg on their face as the big chill sets in.

Data compiled by the IceAgeNow website shows that record lows are being matched and broken on an almost daily basis in states throughout the U.S. as the country prepares for a freezing cold winter.

“Sunspot counts are at a 50-year low,” says solar physicist David Hathaway of the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center. “We’re experiencing a deep minimum of the solar cycle.”

Which is why we are seeing evidence of natural global cooling all over the planet - Alaskan glaciers growing for the first time in 250 years, unprecedented ice storms in Kenya, China experiencing its coldest winter in 100 years, many parts of the U.S. suffering their coldest April on record along with record snowfall, Britain suffering its coldest Easter in decades, Sydney Australia suffering its coldest summer in 50 years.

Increasing Arctic Ice Is What We Don't Hear

Last summer a headline from the Christian Science Monitor read: "Arctic Sea Ice Melting Faster Than Expected". The first line of the article sounded the environmental alarm.

It said: "Arctic Ocean sea ice, one of the most visible indicators for global warming, may be headed for another recordbreaking summer decline." There were similar articles concerning a connection between global warming and melting Arctic sea ice in many other magazines and newspapers at the time.

The fact is that after last summer's Arctic ice melt fell short of the 2007 record extent, Arctic sea ice has been increasing at the fastest rate seen in years. As of last Friday, it was running ahead of the same day in October of last year by 31.3%. (See: annual comparison in purple shade in picture above - 10/17/2007 5,663,125 square kilometers, 10/17/2008 7,436,406 square kilometers ).

Huge Mountain Range Should Not Be There

An Antarctic mountain range that rivals the Alps in elevation will be probed this month by an expedition of scientists using airborne radar and other Information Age tools to virtually "peel away" more than 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) of ice covering the peaks.
