    Jason Hartman--Financial Repression Comes In All Shapes And Sizes #2704

    in Finance

    Jason Hartman joined us today to discuss the antidote to Financial Repression. Jason has been marketing the cure to Financial Repression before he even knew it existed. While you can chase higher yield in various funds, the fact is that the high fees and expenses that you will encounter are just another form of Financial Repression. Over the course of decades you'll be eaten alive. Unlike buying and holding single family homes where there's nobody nickeling and diming you into oblivion.

    Mark Thornton--The True Meaning Of Financial Repression #2668

    in Finance

    Mark writes, "With politicians and central bankers seemingly gone mad with their obsession for money printing and ultra low interest rates, it is nice to know that academic economists have a term (i.e., financial repression) for the policies that have created our current economic conditions. However, it is not a new term. Its use dates back to at least 1973 when two Stanford University economists, Edward Shaw and Ronald McKinnon, used the term in separate publications. The phrase was initially meant to criticize various policies that reduced economic growth in undeveloped countries, rather than as an indictment of the world’s leading modern economies. Financial repression is a revolving set of policies where the government insidiously takes wealth from the private sector, and more specifically makes it easier for government to finance its debt. In today’s environment this includes:

    1. ZIRP or “zero interest rate policy”  2. QE or “quantitative easing”  -These are the two major policies of financial repression currently in use. The combination of the two policies has allowed governments to borrow money, both short- and long-term bonds, at extremely low interest rates. This, in turn, has kept the government’s interest payments on the national debt relatively low."  It won't end well of that we can be certain. Take a look at the frescoes Mark refers to in his article and see if you recognize a parallel to modern America. The Allegory of Good

    We have been the victims of a government that  has not given us Justice in the Killing of our people. We have marched to express our grievances to the Government but they have turned a deaf ear to our protest.  The have met peaceful protest with violent repression of the people with brute force, the same brute force we were grieving about. Police Brutality in our neighborhoods and the senseless murder of our children. We  must send a message, a Powerful Message of withholding our money on Black Friday and the entire Holiday Season. Buy Black!!!

    “THE GREAT HARLEM BOYCOTT OF 1994, BOYCOTT ALL STORES ON 125TH STREET STARTING NOW” was the rostrum of the first significant blow since the Montgomery Bus Boycott. There is a need for the 97% to show the power of the boycott of the people once more, the White Establishment Government of the United Snakes of America must learn the power of the black dollars once more.  


    However,  many people have offered the community Black Capitalism as a solution to our problems.  We recognize that people in the Black community have no general dislike for the concept of Black capitalism, but this is not because they are in love with capitalism.  Not at all.  The idea of Black capitalism has come to mean to many people Black control of another one of the institutions in the community.  We see with in this characteristic the seeds of the negation of Black capitalism and all capitalism in general.  What we must do then is increase the positive qualities until they dominate the negative therefore transform the situation."

    TONIGHT our show begins the new week on THE CORRECT HANDLING OF A REVOLUTION  the topic of our  show we will be reading the best of revolutionaries in compare and contrast, Huey P. Newton and Che Guevara.  Huey says “Repression Breeds Resistance” Che says “ Peoples War, Peoples army. both views steeped in the Marxist Leninist socialist movements but applied differently. 

    "Marxism was applied according to the concrete historical situation of Vietnam and because of the guiding role of the vanguard party, faithful to its people and consequently to its doctrine, a resounding victory was achieved over the imperialists. The characteristics of the struggle, in which territory had to be given to the enemy and many years had to pass in order to achieve final victory, with fluctuations, ebb and flow, was that of a protracted war. During the entire struggle one could say that the front lines were where the enemy was. At a given moment, the enemy occupied almost the entire territory and the front was spread to wherever the enemy was. Later the lines of combat were delimited and a main front was established. But the enemy's rear guard constituted another front; it was a total war and the colonialists were never able to mobilize their forces with ease against the liberated zones. The slogan "dynamism, initiative, mobility, and quick decision in new situations" is in synthesis the guerrilla tactic. These few words expressed the tremendously difficult art of popular war." Felix I. Rodriguez, Shadow Warrior (1989) 

    Let us analyze Huey’s Repression Breeds Resistance, January 16, 1970.  “ The Black Panther Party grew out of the Black Power movement, but the Party transformed the ideology of Black Power into a socialist ideology, a Marxist-Leninist ideology. The Black power Movement has a tendency to have a capitalistic orientation  along the lines of......."

    Author Anita Wills A Nation of Flaws JustUs in the Homeland

    in History

    Join Author Anita Wills for the first episode of a open discussion on A Nation of Flaws JustUs in the Homeland. Families whose loved ones have been killed by Police Action will co host and share their stories. A Nation of Flaws is a book that goes back to the inception of Colonialism and the laws that allowed the killing of Natives for their land, their enslavement, and eventual removal from their ancients lands, to Reservations. Once Natives were dealt with African Slaves were brought into the Americas to work the stolen lands. Christianity was used as a means to Assimilate Natives and then Africans, although most European Christians broke every commandment in their Bible. The laws passed were meant to protect the White Male Patriarchy formed during the Colonial Period. America's laws, spoken and unspoken are a continuation of those same laws. 

    There are written and unwritten laws regarding the police killing of Minorities with impunity. Most Police Shootings are of African Americans, and then Hispanics, and then Natives. It is in fact Natives who have sustained the longest period of Genocide in history, over 500 years. African Americans are now in the cross hairs of American Justice and it is time to speak out. It is time to have an open discussion of the racism and repression visited upon people of color in America. 

    Join us as we have this discussion and share the stories of lives lost included in the book, including, Kerry Baxter Junior, James Rivera Junior, Mario Romero, Derrick Gaines, Antonio Guzman Lopez, O'Shaine Evans, Eric Garner, Sandy Bland, Aiyana Jones, Clinton Allen, Tamir Rice, and many more.
