Greece, China, and Russia – a Plan B for Greece

If the Greeks were to vote ‘No’ what would happen next?  Well no one can say. But here is a quick thought on what I hope the Greek government might have been exploring if they are excluded from the euro. It’s just food for thought nothing more. They have to be prepared to have a […]

Trapped in a Bubble

When in a hole, stop digging. But when in a bubble, keep blowing.  -  Not very ancient proverb. I think our ruling and wealthy elite are worried that they are  stuck in their own ponzi scheme or bubble and are suffering from the general problem of all ponzis and bubbles – how to get out. You […]

The Next Crisis – Part Three – The World Turned Upside Down

At this point I would like to make it clear that just because I have suggested the Global Over Class are likely to have thought ahead to what they will need to achieve before the next crisis arrives and have outlined some of what I think their Manifesto might contain, does not mean I think […]

The Next Crisis – Part two – A manifesto for the supremacy of the 1%

The present crisis is not yet over and yet we are already overdue for the next. In Part One I suggested that not only are the 1% well aware of this but that while they have been telling us how we must ‘save’ the present system and assuring us that any radical break with the […]
