Accelerating the slowdown

MSM has to turn a profit to stay in business. Alternative media does NOT,,, for the most part. Zero Hedge gets lots of contributors who are experts in a given field. Charles Hugh Smith, for example, asks for $5 a month from contributors. Most of the writers at ZH have some other business or some other income. If you are NOT being paid to write, there is little outside pressure. ZH has writers who are very much on top of things. Not wanting to burden you with too much reading, I try to stick to headlines and blurps.

Complementary to this article, you must read an article from Armstrong regarding capital flows.
"The 1989 Bubble top in Japan was so severe like 1929 BECAUSE it had attracted capital from around the world which intensified the rally. But when the foreign investors sold, Japan crashed and burned because nobody understood the consequences of capital flows.
Even when the CIA came to us and wanted me to build this model for them and I declined, they understood we invented capital flow analysis and it was the key to the rise and fall of nations."

It's just not that simple. If Armstrong is correct and, the crash is in sovereign bonds, the government will have to stop consuming. That leaves the public to do all the buying and consuming. That isn't going to happen at a global mean wage.
