Lightbearers should know that the Austrian school of economics
is the one that comes closest to an honest assessment of
economic issues and can deliver many of the insights and
principles on which a Golden Age economy should be based.
Some of the leading thinkers in this school were Ludwig
von Mises, Friedrich Hayek and Murray Rothbard. Their works
are worth studying for they will give you the tools a) to
see through many of the outrageous financial manipulations
by the power elite, b) understand the possible remedies
and c) take measures to protect your own assets.
The latest thinker in this school I became aware of is
Kurt Richebacher. I have been studying his reports and letters
for a little while now and find myself compelled to share
The fundamentals of the USA economy are in such bad shape
that it will only be a matter of time for the necessary
market corrections to take place. This probably will happen
in a series of shocks to the system. The timing of these
shocks and their consequences are hard to predict, but one
of them is now well on its way and that's the bursting of
the real estate bubble. Prices are flat, inventory is up
and the home equity loan business drying up with the possible
effect that American consumers will tap into their mutual
funds to obtain liquidity, which will exert a downward pressure
on the stock market, which in its volatitlity is again in
the danger zone close to collapse next week due to the expiration
of all kinds of options and futures. A repeat of the 1987
Black Monday scenario will not be a surprise, which I--to
give some backing to my dilitant dabbling in economic science--predicted
to happen based on research done as preparation for a lecture
on economic issues for the Summit Lighthouse of Holland
Foundation. During that research I became familiar with
the works of Dutch economist Pieter Lakeman and Dutch journalist
Pauline van de Ven. They wrote together in 1984 "Failliet
op Krediet: De Rol van de Banken in Nederland" (Broke
by Credit: The Role of the Dutch Banks). Their analysis
pretty much goes parallel with what Richebacher sees happening
in the US economy: too much easy money leading to fundamental
imbalances to be straigthened out by disastrous corrections.
All enabled by its central bankers with the Greenspan Fed
now the most culpable and irresponsible of them all.
Please read for yourself some samples of Richebacher's
analyses on the web site of the Richebacher
Letter and start your own research.
