In case you were wondering exactly where “Real America is; apparently it’s in Texas…
I love Max Keiser of Karmabanque Radio. His boisterous, outrageous style of financial commentary had him pigeonholed as a kind of conspiracy theory blowhard. However, now that the sky is really falling in the American economy, Max is starting to be touted as a sort of genius prophet. Anyone who has been following his podcast, for the past 3 or 4 years, is only surprised this banking collapse took so long to materialize. This could be the end of America as we know it. A tsunami of inflation is going to hit the US dollar. The tide has left the beach. What are you going do? Stand on the shore scratching your head? Or run for higher ground?
Anyways, here’s a few of Max’s recent tv appearances…
Max says that ultimately it will be good for the developing world who have the savings and resources. End of the US dollar as reserve currency.
Max about the fears that Wall Street’s woes will spread around the world.
Max says that the financial crisis is an aftershock of 9-11.
The following is much better explanation of the coming US dollar inflation tsunami than I’ve ever been able to articulate. This is from a Canadian blog: Critical Brain Candy http://www.thier.ca/cbc.

The fractional reserve monetary system is the wellspring of many sinister conspiracy theories. However, the simple truth of how the world economy functions is as real as the air you breathe. It’s important to understand the nature of the engine that drives of daily lives. Attribute to it whatever folktale you wish to help your mind come to terms with the realty: shadow gov’ts, new world order, reptilian overlords, whatever. Our economy is only sustainable by perpetual exponential growth. This is growth is arguably responsible for global warming, war, pestilence and famine. It is the beast upon which the four horsemen of the apocalypse ride (sorry to go biblical, couldn’t resist). The current monetary system enslaves us all, turning the people of the world into parasites, instead of caretakers, of the Earth. The inequities created by this system pits brother against brother, makes kings of immoral men, and averts governments away from the pleas of it’s peoples. Unfortunately, we must continue to feed this growth or else our economy will crash and cause much suffering. We are slaves to it. However, if we continue on this path, it will lead to our collective destruction. This is the essence of the apocalypse myth. It has happened to many nations and empires in the past. Humanity has yet to learn the harsh lessons of our history… blah blah blah…Anyways, whenever I attempt to explain, with my limited knowledge, the financial situation we face, I always end up sounding like a raving lunatic. I take comfort in learning there are many other lunatics in the world who are raising their voices in hopes of positive change. The following is a video called “Money As Debt” by Paul Grignon that explains our current banking system in easy to understand terms. For further discussions on the coming collapse of the US economy read this article from Rick Falkvinge of the Pirate Party.http://www.falkvinge.com/2008/03/why-us-is-collapsing.html

Here’s a few videos to help you prepare psychologically for the inevitable collapse of the US dollar. If you’re still not convinced, read this interesting thread from BoingBoing and/or listen to Max Keiser‘s daily podcast Karmabanque Radio. Find out what the American media isn’t allowed to tell you. When it comes to the health of the US dollar: mum’s the word. However, with more and more major banking institutions begging for gov’t bail outs, it’s getting very difficult to keep a lid on the truth about this financial crisis. America can put its fingers in its ears and sing “la la la” for only so long. Don’t be caught with your pants down. Buckle up, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride.

Is Jay-Z signaling a recession?
Submitted by Mark Olson on October 31, 2007 – 4:47pm.
There is something quite alarming on the recently released “Blue Magic” music video.
The song, by the wildly successful rap artist and businessman Jay-Z, is on an album of songs accompanying/inspired by the Ridley Scott movie “American Gangster,” starring Denzel Washington and Russell Crow.
But it wasn’t sex, drugs, violence or explicit language that shocked my conscience.
It was the Euros.
The Jay-Z video flashed large stacks of €500 Euros.
When I start seeing rap stars flashing euros instead of U.S. dollars, I know our economy is in trouble.
Jay-Z carries a lot of weight. Just look at what happened when he began boycotting Cristal champagne.
It’s sad that rap stars can no longer show their style with a good old $500 U.S. bills (featuring President McKinley) and now need to flash €500 Euros (featuring some sort of suspension bridge).
I don’t need the chairman of the Federal Reserve to tell me about the state of our economy. I just need Jay-Z, the new Alan Greenspan.
I don’t blame Jay-Z. A stack of €50,000 in Euros would equal $72,000 in U.S. currency. And you’d need 144 $500 bills to equal a stack of 100 €500 Euros. I don’t know if even Jay-Z has that large a money clip.
When I start seeing rap stars throw around the Canadian Loonie, then I know our economy is really in trouble.
