CORBETT REPORT - PODCAST - KIM by RUDYARD KIPLING


CORBETT REPORT - PODCAST - KIM by RUDYARD KIPLING




In his 1901 novel “Kim” the British Nobel prize winning writer Rudyard Kipling, paints a vivid portrait of an orphaned vagabond, the son of a soldier in an Irish regiment, in 19th century British colonial India. After joining himself to a Tibetan lama on a spiritual quest, Kim stumbles into the middle of the "Great Game" for imperial conquest of Central Asia between Russia and Britain. We explore the historical and cultural context in which the book is set, and how in reality the Great Game has never ceased up to today, in this turbulent part of the world.

This is a new theme and I was pleased that James gave me the unexpected opportunity to be a literary critic of a book which continues to be of geopolitical, historic and literary significance, even today.

GBI INTERVIEW 001 - JOHN HANCOCK - UNIVERSITY EDUCATION

GBI INTERVIEW 001 - JOHN HANCOCK  - UNIVERSITY EDUCATION

The  Geneva Business Insider ("GBI") is now just over two years old.

Over the past two years I have been interviewed by many talented and well informed people on TV, Internet TV, talk shows, radio shows etc. and learned a great deal in the process.

Today I am taking the GBI in a new direction and commencing interviewing invited guests on subjects of particular interest. I will however continue with my regular appearances on existing media shows.

In general the previous discussions have been around finance, economics geopolitics and business.

Today's discussion is all about University Education and the Education Industrial complex which has sprung up around it over recent years. As a concerned father with a daughter preparing university applications as I write, I shared my concerns with today's guest whose daughter has just started university this semester.

My guest is John Hancock, a Canadian national, a well known economist with a history degree from Cambridge, and currently advisor to the Director General of the World Trade Organisation in Geneva.

By way of background, the cost of university education is reaching record highs, the number of students obtaining degrees and unable to find work is soaring, student debt is sky rocketing with no end in sight.

We discuss what value added if any is created by the universities, which universities have a real future and why, and the alternative higher education solutions that are springing up.

We examine above all the fact that the personality, interpersonal skills, character and work ethic of student plays a more important role in his  own future development than any university produced high cost piece of paper.

CORBETT REPORT - J P MORGAN GOLD MANIPULATION; RE-EMERGING EURO CRISIS


CORBETT REPORT - J P MORGAN GOLD MANIPULATION; RE-EMERGING EURO CRISIS


This interview is another in the series of monthly conversations on economics, finance and politics. 

This week we discuss my recent post concerning J P Morgan's manipulation of the Gold and Silver markets, how they are aided and abetted by corrupt and or incompetent regulators and a view of the re-emerging Euro crisis in the wake of the German elections.

J P MORGAN - MANIPULATING EVERYTHING? - CFTC COMPLICIT? - YOU DECIDE & ACT

J P MORGAN -  MANIPULATING EVERYTHING - CFTC COMPLICIT - YOU DECIDE & ACT
Readers will no doubt have seen that J P Morgan has just been fined the paltry sum of USD 750 Million, scarcely more than 0.5% of equity, over  the financial scandal related to the London Whale. 
At the same time they have massively increased their provisions for litigation costs and now stand accused of market manipulation in virtually every conceivable area from energy, to base metals to precious metals.

This of course is why we have regulators, and the law courts to investigate, prosecute and where appropriate mete out justice....everywhere that is except in Wall Street and the City of London.

In this context  please see  specific recent public allegations that J P Morgan Chase has been fraudulently manipulating the price of Gold and Silver.  This information was provided to the regulator, The Commodities Futures Trading Commission ("CFTC"), which deposed two separate whistleblowers from within J P Morgan, both of whom, at great risk to themselves and their careers, provided detailed and specific testimony regarding these criminal trading activities.  
In particular, these whistleblowers provided this information to the CFTC more than one year ago, yet the CFTC has seemingly done nothing to curtail this activity on the part of J P Morgan.  Though the CFTC will attempt to tell you that the investigation is ongoing, the fact remains that nothing has been done to curtail this fraudulent trading activity. Indeed, highly questionable market action suggests that it is still being done today.  At what point does the continued inaction of the CFTC (in full knowledge of what is being done and in possession of sworn testimony indicating the extent of the fraud being committed) indicate that they are acting less as the regulator in this case, and more as an enabler of an ongoing fraud?  At what point does the CFTC become a co-conspirator?
There are millions of victims of this fraud, in the USA, UK , EU and globally.  Victims include pension funds, widows and orphans, insurance companies and ordinary investors. Any person whose retirement account includes an index fund which includes gold or silver mining companies has been defrauded as a result of these actions.  Any investor who owns gold or silver has been defrauded by these actions.  Any person who, in desperate times, has had to sell gold or silver at a “cash for gold” shop has been defrauded by these actions.
If you are an private individual, or an investment manager acting on behalf of others in a fiduciary capacity, you have a moral and in some cases legal obligation to act.

In particular oblige your representing politician, financial or investment advisor etc. to contact the CFTC and question them closely regarding the details of this case and their continued inaction on this matter.

Regrettably, it is only by standing up against  these egregious,  dishonest activities on the part of TBTF banks and complicit regulators, that we can ever rid ourselves of  the cancer within the financial markets. Then true price discovery of the capitalist system would reassert itself over the rigged everything, crony capitalist system we have today.

The actions you and your company  choose to take in this matter, will certainly influence the ultimate outcome.
