Please, please...check out the 1st video.

I hand pick these videos, try to at least get through parts 1 and 2 (or just part 2 if you understand basic econ).

Part 2 does discuss religion, but if you can get past that lot's of info.

But, Part 3 is really, really interesting:

Part 5

Wow. Solyndra is funded to the tune of $527 million and then a year later has padlocks on the doors?

Incredible.

Absolutely incredible.

In 2008 (during the crash) I was trying to get out of a stock, but even though I had limits set there were no bidders.

Now I understand why:

So at 1:54, I flipped on the Khardashians.

4:14 is the cold truth though.

So what are Ann Barnhardt's credentials?

Submitted by paramount on November 9, 2012 - 7:28pm.

1st of all she's very sharp.

I don't really get into her religious views or even some of her - some might say - more radical positions.

However, I do learn a lot from what she has to say about economics.

As I recall she has a background in Econ and is a licensed commodities broker.

If you watched her discussion on Solyndra, she has a very good point.

How does a company funded over a 1/2 billion dollar's, literally a year later have the front doors padlocked?

Even fly-by-night restaurants last longer than that....

Something ain't right about that.

And that's exactly why we have endless wars, Solyndra's, bank collapses, etc...

Ignorance is bliss I suppose.

I can see how, if one shared her paranoid, apocalyptic fantasies and also wanted to feel as macho as her, she would be appealing.

I could not pay attention to what she was saying, I was fixated on the tie. Whats with that tie?

Sharp gal but the message is lost with her presentation. The tie is like a giant zit. You just can't stop looking at it! Fail.

Believe it or not that's fairly easily remedied -> TURN OFF THE FRICKIN MONITOR!!!!!!!!!!!

I think all (8) videos are pretty easy to sit through (Ann is a good speaker) - and at the end you'll have (IMO) a decent understanding of CDS, REPO, mark-to-market, deficit to gdp ratios, fractional banking and more.

I sort of understood what they were before I watched the video's, but Ann really makes it easy to understand.

At the end I think you'll truly understand why the feds are printing 90+ billion/month.

We have had all kinds of conspiracy theories...from the FEDs being evil themselves to fractional banking being the root cause to some sort of secret entity controlling the world.
It is interesting that she adds a new one in that she thinks the folks running the system now are stupid (essentially it boils down to this) and are immoral in a cristian sense.

I just don't see the kind of disruption she is talking about when interest rates jump 3%. But I am no expert...would love to hear from the banker types on the forum.
