If you ever wanted a financial explanation to the geopolitical game being played at the cost of hundreds of thousands of lives over the last decade, don’t miss this episode. The great empire that has been built up for so long is finally on its death throws as the beast is literally attacking itself, just to keep a Ponzi scheme going that is enriching the same people in the same places. The second half interview with Michael Hudson and the end of the 60 year cycle is priceless. — TRpAugust 17, 2014 Source Youtube
In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert note that as the Empire collapses, they’ve killed all the boogeymen and yet blood for oil has not helped create escape velocity.
They also discuss what the return of humpback whales and great white sharks to the waters off Manhattan can tell us about the end of a monoculture in fiat currencies where the dollar has reigned supreme.
In the second half, Max interviews Dr. Michael Hudson about the war machine, Judge Griesa’s ruling, super imperialism and the end of a 60 year cycle in which there was no alternative to the dollar.
