Daily Reading on the Financial Markets: 4/5/12
From Zero Hedge, Brian Rogers provides a list of the ways in which we Americans are not as free as we like to imagine.
Jim Quinn of Burning Platform with Part 3 of his essay on a coming “Fourth Turning” and how cataclysmic change doesn’t have to be a bad thing.
Lee Adler at Wall Street Examiner on the Fed’s nasty dilemma: feed the market and risk commodities exploding higher, or reign in the market and risk a crash that crushes the real economy.
The U.S. continues trotting down its own path to tyranny. With SOPA and PIPA decried, Congress has now introduced H.R. 3523, “CIRPA”, more of the same.
More on Greek Pensioner Dimitris Cristoulas, whose suicide note drew parallels between Papademos and Georgios Tsolakoglou.
The note he left reportedly said: “Young people without a future will one day take up arms and hang the traitors upside down in Syntagma Square, as the Italians did to Mussolini in 1945…”
My prayers go out to him and his family. Needless to say, I agree with his comparison of the Papademos regime with Tsolakoglou.
