How Much is This Recovery Going to Cost?

It’s crazy how many different things can be traded these days. There are futures contracts for just about everything, even the weather. In my days as a commodity broker, many moons ago, we even used to joke about putting on a tiger shrimp/powdered milk spread. (You could actually do this, were you so inclined. Or at least you could back then.)

But you know what would be really great to see? A futures contract that rises or falls with the reputation of central bankers.

Someone smart (like Robert Shiller) should create the “Federal Reserve Good Will Index,” to measure popular sentiment toward the Chairman of the Fed. Then the Chicago Mercantile Exchange could set up a contract that traded off it.

I wish they had done this years ago. If they had, I would have shorted the daylights out of Alan Greenspan futures contracts, right about the time Vice Chairman Alan Blinder referred to him as “The greatest central banker who ever lived.”

Talk about an unsustainable high! Since that day in 2005, Greenspan has gone from “Maestro” to “Master of Disaster” in the eyes of the world (for anyone keeping score that is).

And as for today, your editor would happily short the monetary witch doctor du jour, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, in large size too. What an excellent speculation that would be.

Bernanke 5,000

Like the Nasdaq of old in the days of the dot-com bubble, the Federal Reserve’s reputation has soared high in recent months. As the global financial crisis fades from investor memory, belief has been widespread that Ben Bernanke saved the day… that both America and the world were saved from disaster by the Fed’s decisive action and generous intervention.

Well. We’ll see how kindly history treats that judgment.

Remember Nasdaq 5,000? That was the magic number (5,408.62 if you want to be precise). When the Naz kissed that magical 5K level in March of 2000, soaring ever higher on gossamer dot-com wings, it turned out to be the kiss of death. A brutal 75% decline followed.

Your editor predicts that, were the Fed Chairman’s reputation linked to an index, we would soon be approaching “Bernanke 5,000,” in keeping with the Nasdaq of old. And also in due time, we will see a similar bone-crushing decline.

Bernanke’s reputation will take a brutal dive downward – and never fully recover – when it becomes clear, to even the most deaf, dumb and blind observer, that this recovery was purchased, via the Federal Reserve’s funny money trillions, at far, far too high a cost.

Cost? What Cost?

Of course, right now we have a situation that could be considered amusing… or tragic… or both. Many market investors and commentators aren’t even aware – so far – that this recovery even HAS a hidden cost.

All they see are the pretty economic data points creating an oh so pleasing medium uptrend. Rampant stimulus? Out-of-control fiat money creation? Pshaw. They think all this came about for free!

Take Maria “Money Honey” Bartiromo for example. Ms. Bartiromo has been a CNBC financial reporter since 1993. She has written books, hosted World Economic Forums, reported “live on the scene” in countless exchange floor experiences, and ridden in private jets with the Wall Street glitterati.

And yet, for all that, she seems absolutely clueless as to what is actually happening.

Sound too harsh? The evidence is caught on videotape. In a Yahoo Tech Ticker interview, Bartiromo said the following:

“There’s nothing wrong with a boom bust economy. What’s wrong with a boom bust economy? Things are booming and then you get a bust and that opens the door for wealth creation.”

Nothing wrong with a… the mind boggles. Nothing wrong with trillions of dollars in wealth and savings, vaporized overnight by a bunch of greedy banksters? Nothing wrong with America in financial turmoil? Nothing wrong with 20% unemployment and underemployment? Nothing wrong with American small business – the backbone of the country – gasping for air like caught fish flopping around in the bottom of the boat, while the main perpetrators of the crisis are rewarded with risk-free billions in new profits? Nothing wrong with trashing the rule of law and descending into financial oligarchy?

Pardon my French, but Ms. Bartiromo has no idea – none – what the hell is actually going on. As Bill Bonner once quipped in Financial Reckoning Day, she is like a squirrel watching a bank robbery. She and legions like her – who represent the financial establishment! – have zero grasp of Austrian economics, which warns very plainly that these “harmless” booms and busts, brought on by government massaging of the credit cycle, lead to outright fiscal disaster. Wealth creation? Try wealth DESTRUCTION, on a vast and epic scale.

The CAT Example

The problem with the financial establishment – and it is only one of many – is a sort of willful myopia. These people put on their blinders and green eye shades and fixate with intensity on earnings and indicators and managed data points… all the things that they want to see. Anything that they don’t want to see or hear, they ignore. “A man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest,” as Simon & Garfunkel once sang.

Take the recent earnings report from Caterpillar (CAT:NYSE), a well-known maker of earth-moving equipment and other machinery. CAT reported an “improved outlook,” to much praise and good cheer from investors – along with a sharp price gap higher – even as its revenue declined 11% year on year.

(And somehow an 11% top-line decline, off the miserable crisis conditions of Q1 09 no less, counts as improved? Hmm.) Worse still:

• CAT’s machinery sales were down 1%
• North American machinery sales were down 15%
• Dealer inventories were half the previous year’s levels
• Engine sales were down 28%

Gee, that all sounds terrible. So why were investors cheering – and buying? Because Asia profits were up 40%, leading to a modest profit where last year saw a loss. That happy circumstance drove everything. The bad news on overall revenue decline… machinery and engine sales decline… utter North American malaise… all ignored.

It gets even more amusing. Those save-the-day profits CAT picked up in Asia? For a company that sells earth-moving equipment, how much of that strength might be linked to the fact that China is in the midst of a white-hot real estate and construction bubble? (Hmm, you think?)

Not only did CAT look awful everywhere except in Asia – where China has been bankrolling nutty construction projects like mad – the company actually conditioned its positive outlook on the presence of continued stimulus!

As the WSJ reported, “[CAT] raised it[s] outlook for 2010, though revenue declined on continued weakness in developed economies, especially the U.S. and Europe. It cited concerns about central banks withdrawing stimulus too soon.

A Cost We Cannot Bear

So there you have it. Caterpillar, one of the world’s premier industrial companies, shoots the moon on positive investor sentiment even as its business model clearly hinges on the kindness of central bankers.

“Please Mr. Bernanke, don’t stop the flood of free money – it’s all that’s keeping our USA lines from collapsing. Please Beijing, don’t stop building deserted shopping malls and empty skyscrapers and highways that no one will drive on. It’s the only thing making us look good. Yet our outlook has “improved”… as long as you keep it coming.”

The thing is, the torrential gusher of free money that has so buoyed us isn’t actually “free,” any more than the low-cost funds once happily borrowed by Greece were free.

The unprecedented stimulus – a “great macro liquidity experiment” the likes of which the world has never seen – comes with a horrible embedded cost… a potential price so high that the crisis “cure” could ultimately prove far worse than the disease.

The true cost may only be known, in fact, once the Federal Reserve has managed to inflate yet another money and credit bubble (to compliment the decade’s previous two). And once this third bubble pops, we could be left with an even bigger financial crisis to clean up… and no room on the balance sheet to spare.

A country without reasonable means of paying off its debts is only as solvent as the market judges it to be. At some point in future, thanks to the Greece precedent, the market may judge the USA technically insolvent – i.e. unable to pay its debts except by way of printing press, which is a form of default in disguise.

That is the frightening reality that the Maria Bartiromos of the world miss, even as the overlooked danger signs mount.

For all that we have sacrificed, there will not be nearly enough “bang for our buck” in the end, when expensively purchased recovery on the whole runs headlong into the brick wall of sovereign debt crisis. The looming costs of the stimulative printing press “solution” could prove too much for the West to bear.

Military Lessons: The US Military in the Post-Vietnam Era (1999)

The Vietnam War called into question the US Army doctrine. Marine Corps General Victor H. Krulak heavily criticised Westmoreland’s attrition strategy, calling it “wasteful of American lives… with small likelihood of a successful outcome.” In addition, doubts surfaced about the ability of the military to train foreign forces. Between 1965 and 1975, the United States spent 1 billion on the war (6 billion in FY2008 dollars). This resulted in a large federal budget deficit. More than 3 million Americans served in the Vietnam War, some 1.5 million of whom actually saw combat in Vietnam. James E. Westheider wrote that “At the height of American involvement in 1968, for example, there were 543000 American military personnel in Vietnam, but only 80000 were considered combat troops.” Conscription in the United States had been controlled by the President since World War II, but ended in 1973.” By war’s end, 58220 American soldiers had been killed, more than 150000 had been wounded, and at least 21000 had been permanently disabled. According to Dale Kueter, “Sixty-one percent of those killed were age 21 or younger. Of those killed in combat, 86.3 percent were white, 12.5 percent were black and the remainder from other races.” The youngest American KIA in the war was PFC Dan Bullock, who had falsified his birth certificate and enlisted in the US Marines at age 14 and who was killed in combat at age 15. Approximately 830000 Vietnam veterans suffered symptoms of posttraumatic

Digital Signage Scoop: There’s A Lot More Going On At School Than The Three Rs

As the summer rapidly comes to a close, young children, adolescents and young adults prepare to return to school to resume their education.

While that annual ritual continues much in same way it has my entire life, many other aspects of the school experience are different. For instance, why should a student learn the Dewey Decimal System when there’s Google and the Internet? Remember that distinct smell and soggy feel of newly mimeographed tests? A relic of a bygone era. How about recesses filled with competitive games of soccer, kickball or basketball? Is it even OK to have winners and losers anymore?

Here’s another you’re sure to remember: The disembodied voice of the principal emanating from a small speaker on the wall filling the classroom with various announcements. That, pardon the pun, is old school. It’s gone -or at least augmented by technologies like student-run TV production and digital signage.

While it’s not surprising that digital signage is replacing outmoded methods of communications around schools, what some might find shocking is the scope of digital signage deployments on campuses. According to an article published in ecampusnews.com in July, some 1,500 campuses added digital signage last year, and an additional 2,200 campuses are forecasted to do the same in 2011.

Digital signs at elementary schools, high schools and on the campuses of colleges and universities are used for a variety of applications, including -but not limited to:

* Informational: Where bulletin boards, lockers and even telephone poles on campus were once covered with fliers recruiting students for activities, advertising a new band on tour or conveying some other piece of important news, digital signs are offering a more attractive way to get the message out more quickly and easily.

* Wayfinding: Frequently visitors to a college campus or even a massive high school don’t know how to get where they want to go. Digital signs not only can greet visitors, but also make it easy to find a gymnasium, theater or even an auditorium where voting in a local or national election is being conducted.

* Menu boards: With digital signage, controlling the display of what’s for lunch at the school cafeteria becomes consistent and less labor intensive, if deployed across an entire school district. Think of the manual steps that must be taken to use the old plastic lettering -repeated over and over again across the district. Then there is simplifying the steps to coordinate this huge dance.

* Create ambience: Some school districts and universities use digital signage to create a desired environment. For example, one Midwestern high school honors program focused on business education relies on a digital sign outside each classroom to showcase the work of students and to give them a place to make special presentations. The digital signs, thus, are both functional and instrumental in creating the desired look and feel the school district desires.

* Emergency alerts: Displays on a digital signage network makes informing faculty, staff and students of potential severe weather and other emergency situations quick and easy.

So, here’s the scoop: These digital signage applications are transforming how many different communications tasks are being fulfilled in educational settings. Digital signs are replacing outmoded approaches while at the same time making it easier to communicate an effective message. It’s no wonder thousands of campuses and school districts nationwide are turning to digital signage.

Criminal Court Records – Guarantee Your Safety by Going Through People’s Criminal Court Records

Safety is an issue often talked about yet it is something that we frequently took for granted. Though there have been plenty of untoward incidences due to lack of security measures, many of us still cannot find the time to ensure our complete well-being. However, this complacency is not tolerable in this day and age, as the number of crimes continuously increase each day. This is why to make sure that we are safe with the people that surround us, we must go through their background records, specifically their criminal court records.

We may have a suspicious neighbor or a house helper whom we leave our valuables and other properties with, and we can never be too sure about their pasts. More importantly, we might just be making a very important decision like getting married or joining a business venture, and before love or a promising future blinds us, we owe it to ourselves to know if the person we are going to trust have any criminal court records.

There are plenty of ways to find out if these people have told us the truth about themselves. There are also loads of free resources over the internet. However, it may take expertise in doing online research as well as patience and plenty of time. This is why a fee-based website that offers more accurate information can save us from going through the hassle of finding out about a person’s past. It can guarantee our safety and give us peace of mind.

Going Straight From a Pardon to the Workplace

Indictable offence convictions can follow a person around out of proportion to his danger to society if the convicted person has made every effort to be a good citizen and avoided committing any more crimes. It may be true that some people commit previous crimes before they are convicted of one but a percentage of those tend to have second thoughts after spending some time behind bars. In this sense imprisonment or large fines can act as a deterrent. However, marking that person with the stigma of a permanent criminal flag whenever his name is entered into a computer is no deterrent, so the pardons process is in place to assure that no one is forced to return to crime because of inability to get a job and meld with society once again.

In Canada the Canadian Human Rights Act assures that a person cannot be discriminated against based on a pardoned conviction. The pardoned person is guaranteed that no basic services can be denied. The person also has the right to work for a federal agency or the Armed Forces. As expected there are some common-sense safety measures, such as maintaining a prohibition against possession of firearms if the offence involved guns.

Canadians being place under arrest have the right to be told why they are being detained, the right to contact a lawyer, the right to speak to the lawyer or crown council in private, the right to be released on bail (unless there are extenuating circumstances), and to have the charge brought to trial within a reasonable amount of time. The accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty and has the right not to be required to testify at his trial if that is his wish. Most importantly there is the right to be pardoned after the prescribed time period, which is five years after completing a sentence for an indictable offence and three years after a summary offence.

Parliament rules can be modified by the Supreme Court of Canada and this has happened on the issue of having the right to remain silent when arrested. No longer do arrested suspects have the right to remain silent in Canada. This was the subject of a Supreme Court decision (R. v. Singh (163 C.R.R. (2d) 280) where the suspect asserted a right to remain silent 18 times. The police continued questioning him after each of the 18 assertions that were made. The Supreme Court ruled that this continued questioning, in spite of protests by the accused, is consistent with Canada’s Charter of Rights and protections.

Suspects with previous criminal records can expect to be questioned at considerable length in situations where accomplices or criminal superiors might be involved. Courts may offer leniency in sentencing those who have cooperated but once a sentence is imposed and served, the released prisoner still must apply for a pardon to be seen as an honest citizen and to have full freedom to be allowed back into the workforce.

Most Western nations are giving the benefit of the doubt to those who have served their sentences, paid their fines, and completed any probations issued by the Court. There are private companies who assist people to obtain pardons by doing a criminal record search for the details and helping them to prepare applications to go through the pardons process. These companies will also prepare U.S. Entry Waivers if needed to enter or work in the U.S. The pardons company can also apply for non-conviction arrest record file destruction if the case meets all the requirements. Arrest records remain on file in Canada but are not necessarily a barrier to employment, crossing borders, or being granted child custody. The pardons company is a handy one-stop catalyst to clear the way for a normal life.

Pat Boardman is an SEO Consultant and published novelist writing this in regards to Assured Pardons, a National Company with offices in Toronto and Vancouver to assist those with criminal records to obtain a pardon, U.S. entry waivers, and to help with criminal record destruction to clear arrest records where no conviction was entered.

Question by Steve C: Should there be a review process for pardons?
I am not taking either side on this issue, as both sides have pardoned people that should be in jail, but do you think that pardons should have to pass some sort of review by impartial parties to assure that the pardons are not letting people free that are accused of serious crimes?

Best answer:

Answer by Thomas G
No. Either the power to pardon should be removed from the Executive (Governors of States can pardon as well) or it should be left alone and we deal with it as we historically always have

To add a layer of review just adds more bureaucracy to a system that has too much all ready

Personally i think it should be removed it is a hold over from the power of the King to pardon and the Executive: president or governor is Not a KING
