I’ve just come through a particularly trying week, one in which my mother-in-law passed away, and along with it the grief and sorrows of the family. As you might imagine I’ve been preoccupied with that event, and not able to devote the time I generally spend in watching the madness of our world unravel. But sometimes the enormity of what takes place simply muscles its way into your life no matter the distraction.
This week was surely one of those times. In the course of just 10 days, the things that we’ve seen transpire would have taken one’s breath away in virtually any other time in history. But in 2015? Nah, not so much. See, we had a dress color to debate. The internet and the news media was obsessed with trying to figure out if the dress in question was one of white and gold, or blue’s and black. It was massively important stuff, so much so that Hollywood figures, Country music stars, journalists, doctors of psychology, and more weighed in with their thoughts.

Assuming that this is just a game of chicken, time is not on Greece's side. Greek finances would dry up within a month of the end of the current agreement... But things are not much rosier for the Eurogroup.
The problem here is that debt itself is the problem, but as we all know... the very monetary system upon which our entire economic house of cards is built is based on debt-based central banker funny money.
So it seems that the deflationary cycle has come to an end...for the moment. But there is still life left in the US dollar bull market, and thus further commodity deflation is highly likely.
This Peer-to-Peer economy that is rising up to replace the Industrial/Information economy is difficult to see in its totality, but is everywhere around us.
...now that this is becoming the fashionable new mini-stimulus for countries suffering in the doldrums of this deflationary cycle, it isn't quite so surprising as it once was. It's now almost predictable.
...what is at stake with every royal succession is not just the domestic politics of Saudi Arabia, but the course of geopolitics and, ultimately, the global economy.
