The Stagflation Trap Will Lead To Universal Basic Income And Food Rationing

March 17, 2022 50 Comments

By Brandon Smith

This past week during a conference discussing Biden’s “Build Back Better” scheme House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was confronted with questions on skyrocketing inflation. After referring to higher gas prices as the “Putin Tax”, she went on to offer perhaps the dumbest (or most insidious) denial on the causes of inflation that I have ever heard. She stated:

“When we’re having this discussion, it’s important to dispel some of those who say, well it’s the government spending. No, it isn’t. The government spending is doing the exact reverse, reducing the national debt. It is not inflationary.”

Anyone with a basic understanding of economics and how central banks operate must have felt their brains explode when they heard this, I know I did. But before I get into the numerous reasons why this claim is completely false in every way, I want to give a warning – It’s very easy in this situation to assume that Pelosi and even Biden are making these arguments because they are too stupid to grasp the fundamentals of debt creation, money velocity and fiat. That said, never mistake evil for mere ignorance.

All higher level representatives of the White House are briefed by economic experts (spin doctors) well before they answer any questions on inflation, and the things they say have been carefully scripted. It’s possible Pelosi mixed her lies up a little bit, but the narrative the establishment is trying to promote is well planned. Asserting that money creation is a counterbalance to inflation instead of the cause is not brilliant, but it’s not designed to convince many people, only create confusion.

Let’s not forget that only last year these same people were telling the public that inflation was purely “transitory” and that there was nothing to worry about. Now they are trying to cover their tracks and the culpability of the Federal Reserve. I believe the goal here is to simply stall for time until the stagflationary collapse unfolds. They have the perfect scapegoat as they launch an economic war with Russia (and likely China in the near term), and the effects of this war will hurt the US and Europe far more than many realize.

To quickly break down Pelosi’s bizarre statement I will make a couple of root observations:

First, paying down the national debt has NOTHING to do with reducing inflation. Even if you could somehow gather enough assets to pay off the national debt without creating new dollars from thin air the current inflationary problems would persist. There would still be the matter of the tens of trillions of dollars already fabricated and floating around the global economy. Inflation is directly related to money supply and money velocity. The national debt is secondary to the issue.

Second, we need to ask the most obvious question: If government spending “reduces the national debt” by paying it down, then why hasn’t the national debt gone down?

The Fed and the US government created over $6 trillion in fiat money in 2020 alone, and the national debt only went higher. In fact, the explosion of the national debt correlates DIRECTLY to the amount of dollars created by the Fed to supply various stimulus policies and bailouts over the years. The national debt in 2008 at the onset of the credit crash was around $10 trillion. It took hundreds of years to reach that level. In the span of only 14 years of Fed money creation the debt has now TRIPLED to over $30 trillion.

I’ll say it again – Government spending and Fed stimulus has tripled the size of our national debt in less than 14 years. And, of course, inflation has spiked as the amount of dollars injected into the global system causes the buying power of our currency to decline dramatically. More fiat dollars equals less buying power. This is reality.

Also, using Russia as a scapegoat just doesn’t hold up on the logic meter. The assertion by Pelosi, Biden and many establishment leftists has been that blocking Russian oil to the US is leading to inflation in multiple sectors of the economy, but it’s “necessary” to stop Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. One might assume that we use a lot of Russian oil. We don’t.

Russian crude oil only makes up 3% of US imports. Therefore, there is no way that sanctions on Russian oil are the cause of rising prices, nor do these sanctions have any effect on the Kremlin. Inflation was hitting 40 year highs back in December of last year, well before the war in Ukraine. In fact, news on the Fed’s interest rate hikes moves oil markets far more than news on Ukraine.

To summarize, I have a special message for Nancy Pelosi: Please do us a favor and shut up, you blood sucking crone. The American people are smarter than you, and your propaganda script is full of holes.

Onward to more important issues…

This narrative is not only about protecting the Biden Administration, it is also about protecting the Federal Reserve. As former Fed Chair Alan Greenspan once openly admitted, the central bank answers to no one, and that includes government officials. Many theorize that it is actually the central banks and international banks that make the majority of policy decisions for government, and politicians have very little say in matters. I’m inclined to agree given the number of banking elites and globalist Council on Foreign Relations members that seem to permeate every single presidential cabinet (this includes Trump’s cabinet as much as Biden’s).

Biden is an empty shell of a man barely able to maintain a semblance of sanity, who do you think really runs the country?

I have been writing a lot lately about how establishment elites and globalists actually benefit greatly from a stagflationary crisis, as long as they are able to divert blame to other sources and are not targeted for retribution by the public. One of these benefits includes a cover event for an agenda that the World Economic Forum calls the “Great Reset,” which is essentially just another name for “New World Order.”

Isn’t it marvelous that the government and media hailstorm of covid fear porn that was bombarding Americans only a few months ago has now suddenly vanished? What happened? Well, the establishment was defeated, that’s what happened. With conservatives and moderates in red states in the US and in nations around the world fighting back against the lockdowns and vaccine passports the globalists must have realized the battle in the long run was lost. Suddenly all talk of passports and medical tyranny is gone.

I realize there are some people out there that give the globalists too much credit and still argue the covid scheme was some kind of success. These people are wrong. If you want to see what success looks like go to China, where hundreds of millions are still suffering from lockdowns today and no one can do anything without an up-to-date vaccine passport and QR code. In China the vax passports are also used for tracking of the population as well as an element of their social credit scores. This is what the globalists wanted for all nations including the US, and they didn’t get it. Therefore, it’s on to the next crisis.

The stagflation threat worries me more than any other for a number of reasons, and it’s not just because of the potential for extreme poverty. As we all know, the strategy of “order out of chaos” is about creating enough desperation within a target population that the people are willing to give up their freedoms in exchange for a semblance of safety and normalcy. But what specific controls would the establishment seek out?

Stagflation has the ability to trigger much higher prices in necessities, while it simultaneously drags GDP down along with wages, jobs, manufacturing, etc. There is also the very real threat of government price controls, which would suffocate production and reduce the supply of goods even further. We are not quite to this point yet, but the danger is approaching fast.

There are two initiatives within the WEF’s Great Reset agenda that parallel stagflation almost exactly and I predict we will be hearing about them often in the coming year.

The first initiative is the concept of Universal Basic Income (UBI); we heard a lot about this a few years ago but the idea didn’t stick too well with the American public. The truth, however, is that we already had UBI for a time in the form of “covid stimulus checks.” This helicopter money was funded by over $6 trillion in central bank fiat created from nothing, and then directly injected into citizen accounts. It was barely enough for people to live on by itself, but in conjunction with other welfare programs and unemployment checks millions of people were living the easy life at home for well over a year. The money was so easy that the policy actually triggered a national labor shortage.

This small taste of UBI might have given people the wrong impression about such stimulus programs. After the covid programs the public might be led to believe that UBI would result in a carefree life with money to go around. By themselves without the benefit of other welfare programs, the covid checks would not have been enough to keep people housed and fed; the standard of living for the average person would have to fall dramatically for UBI to work at all. Enter stagflation…

With economic decline crushing our living standards it could be easier for the establishment to lure the public into UBI. Along with communist-style price controls across the board (and a reduced population due to starvation and poverty) the public would be able to survive, but barely. There would no longer be such a thing as “personal wealth,” only the scraps that governments and bankers are willing to throw people. On top of that, resistance to authoritarianism would be nearly impossible. Once the government takes on the role of mommy and daddy and the the only source of food and housing for the citizenry they are far less likely to stand against any abuse the establishment wants to dish out.

UBI is a candy coated trap which breeds dependency in a population. Free money is an addictive drug, and America just had a big taste during the pandemic.

This leads us into the second WEF Great Reset program, which is the concept of the “shared economy.” The globalists think that you should own nothing, have no privacy, and be happy about it. The initial danger here involves rationing. A government cannot institute UBI measures during a stagflationary crisis without also instituting price controls, because otherwise the fiat stimulus used to provide the UBI checks would only create MORE inflation in prices. If UBI is meant to offset inflation but it creates more inflation, then UBI becomes useless. This is another little fact that people like Pelosi will try to gloss over when they claim that money printing helps “fight inflation.”

When price controls are implemented manufacturing will implode further, because price controls mean producers of necessities will not be able to make much of a profit (or they will make no profit at all). There will be no incentive to produce among the people that actually know how to produce, and these people are not easy to replace. The supply of goods will not be able to meet demand. Naturally, the government will take the opportunity to limit the amount of goods any single person or family is allowed to purchase or stockpile through rationing cards.

These kinds of measures have been used in the past, usually during wartime or under communist regimes. But in this case the rationing will be digital and permanent, and it will be designed to further control food and other resources as a means to prevent rebellion by the public. If you can’t store more than a week’s worth of necessities at any given time, then your ability to defy the government is nonexistent unless you know how to live off the land or have access to black markets. All they have to do is cut off your monthly UBI checks and ration account and watch you starve.

I will cover solutions to these problems in an article coming soon. I think it’s important that people within the liberty movement and outside of the liberty movement start thinking about the scale of the crisis we are facing. It’s not just about economic disaster and adapting to the loss of supply chains and stable currencies; it’s not just about survival. It’s also about fighting back against the inevitable government response to the crisis. They will try to take advantage of people’s pain, and use it to lure those people into slavery. This cannot be allowed to happen.

    Do you think global gold/silver markets will “seize up” or get closed down like what happened recently with the nickel market? Do you think we will see calls for nationalization of oil/energy companies?

  • JustOneGuy March 17, 2022 at 11:51 am

    Day by day the World is beginning to look mor and more like a chapter from out of Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged”. Pelosi appears to be cast as – perhaps – Wesley Mouch.
    Perhaps it’s about time for the appearance of John Galt.

    @Brandon,
    Of late I’ve been considering the actual appropriate “Power Pyramid” and I have a very specific question that I can’t quite settle on an answer for.
    The question – put as simply as I can state it – is this:
    “Are the IMF/BIS/Banking construct above, below or on a par with the Hyper-Rich which are ostensibly the “Stakeholders” referred to in the WEF’s vision of a “GREAT RESET”?
    I ask the question inasmuch as one day it appears the Oligarchs are the driving force behind things, the next day it seems that the Banksters are running the show. Perhaps you’ve already spoke to this, perhaps your previous mention of a Grand Tour of the WEF’s machinations (yet to be presented) is where you intend to do so…
    I would be obliged hearing your thoughts on this Sir.

    Regards…JOG

    • RelocatedPrepper March 20, 2022 at 2:19 pm

      I was thinking along the same lines – and anticipating “those who can, those who know, and those who make” all withdrawing their skills and services from the marketplace in a UBI / Price Controlled environment, because, why not? And of course each “maker” withdrawing from the marketplace speeds up the positive feedback cycle of decline eventuating in societal implosion, and is called “Going Galt”!

    If ANY spending “reduces debt”, then I’m ordering my wife to go to the mall like yesterday.

That’s where Brandon comes in with real-world solutions. 🙂

    @Thomas, great question! I’m curious about Brandon’s opinion.

    @JOG, to me the oligarchs and the banksters are really one and the same. https://rumble.com/vmyx1n-monopoly-who-owns-the-world-documentary-by-tim-gielen.html

      Howdy G,
      I have followed Brandon’s analysis of things since virtually the time he first began blogging publically. In all that time time the number of times he has erroneously predicted somthing which didn’t happen I can count on the fingers of one hand…and have spare fingers left.
      I value his opinion more than I can adequately describe.
      Here’s the point of the question I posted. Rather soon I think, it’s going to be necessary to to “Cut the head off of the Snake”…but to do so, you need to KNOW where the head IS.
      Striking without success allows you to be bit immediately, which is simply not an option as matters currently sit. Christine LaGarde, Mario Drahgi, Klaus “Prince of Darkness” Schwab and the members of the IMF/BIS aren’t notably hyper-wealthy on the face of it – though certainly they are instrumental in Architecting the current mess we’re experiencing – so again I pose the question, “WHERE’S the HEAD?”…Which is principally similar to the commercial several years ago with a geriatric woman yodeling, “Where’s the BEEF?”.
      One’s ability to retain a secret is inversely proportional to the number of people who know the secret, so obviously we’re here dealing – with at most, IMHO – perhaps 100 people whose effect in the structure they’re attempting to create is simply “Critical”, ie, those are effectively “Lynchpins” in that effort….those are who we need to identify SOON.

      Best Regards…JOG

      • Gauntlet33 March 21, 2022 at 3:52 pm

        Hey JOG, I hear you on getting to the “head of the snake”, but I don’t know if we’ll ever truly get to the heads of these snakes unless there were mass interrogations with physical torture, and even then I’m not sure if these rats would squeal. Also, I have long believed that if you cut the tail of the snake enough times, then virtually no one will want to stick their heads out as the henchmen for the globalists as they would no longer wish to risk their lives as Nazi police officers, etc. once they see that their fellow Nazi coworkers have been picked off or died in combat.
        At any rate, I do wish to see answers/solutions come soon. And I do believe that one day there will be a Conservative response that will be not so conservative and very targeted and detailed to get the job done.

        • JustOneGuy March 21, 2022 at 5:23 pm

          Howdy G,
          I suspect (sigh) that you are likely correct. A part of me shudders at the thought of so many misguided people falling in the place of those who actually truly deserve such.
          Please don’t mistake my expression of regret for the lower echelons paying the price their MASTERS should be paying; all of those on the ‘other side of the fence’ ARE complicit and so culpable. However, isn’t it a pity that if just a hundred or so of those who are truly guilty of Treason against Humanity could be ‘vanished’ from off the Earth that then all that is now occurring would simply stop.
          I’ve dwelt on this for some time and I am resolved that sometimes a Price must be paid by the Good such that Evil not thrive. I could stand in front of the Throne and not be ashamed if my existence was ended doing what is Right. Perhaps though this thought too is a form of Temptation: “Vengeance is MINE sayeth the Lord.” as we are instructed. Another thought – eerily similar to your observation – occured to me a bit ago. In the Great Depression people willingly stood by as the Police (Enablers) put them and their meager belongings out on the street. I do not believe that that will be the case in what comes next. As you observe, once enough of those are returned in regulation issue body bags it is VERY likely that the entire ‘Enabler’ class is going to be compelled to re-think thier Professional choices…
          Forgive my rambling…tis been a long, long day today.

          Best Regards…JOG

  • Rodster March 17, 2022 at 2:32 pm

    Brandon, you wasted your intelligence trying to explain the stupidity of Nancy Pelosi. We have the dumbest crop of world leaders running the show all to Build Back Better. These morons couldn’t run a local 7-11.

    Maybe it should be called Build Back Broken.

    • Brandon Smith March 17, 2022 at 2:47 pm

      I think the point is that she was trying to tell a scripted lie, but repeated it badly. The people writing these lies for Pelosi and Biden do in fact have a plan.

    • Chevrus March 23, 2022 at 10:20 am

      Calling out the crudely crafted lies time again is what allowed the less informed to see through them. It may seem redundant here, but it goes a long way to getting people off the fence.

  • Nigel Gould March 17, 2022 at 2:36 pm

    But will the Ukraine conflict not turn nuclear, thus destroying the Western world altogether and prevent any UBI from taking off?

    • Brandon Smith March 17, 2022 at 2:45 pm

      Highly unlikely. Read my recent articles on the globalist agenda, I cover this issue. The elites are not going to spend decades of effort and trillions of dollars to build the infrastructure for a digital control grid only to erase it all in the blink of an eye. Also, there are things almost as bad as nuclear war that won’t destroy most infrastructure.

    Are you referring to a major cyber attack that you wrote about last week targeting the internet to only allow a few websites? The repercussions would be horrible, even if the websites were only down for a few weeks. Or are you referring to something else?

    • Brandon Smith March 17, 2022 at 5:55 pm

      Yes, that is mainly what I was referring to. Also, the possibility that they do release another bioweapon like covid but this time they get it right and it does actually kill a higher percentage of people. But I suspect this is much more difficult than it sounds and trying the same trick again would not play out well with a public already fed up with health mandates.

    • Chevrus March 23, 2022 at 10:23 am

      Said cyber attack is already being “broadcasted” again by the PTB…
      It’s not so much the websites as it is the internet functioning like a giant kill switch. If almost everything cannot function correctly without it, The Blackout has the very real potential to bring supply chains to a grinding halt.
      Analog always wins.

    The US national debt never goes down because no currency ever pays off the debt ever. It is actually impossible.

    It’s one of the biggest scams ever perpetrated against humanity.

    The IRS is a private corporation and all income tax gets paid to the Federal reserve system and not to pay off the national debt.

    Not one cent.

    Furthermore, when the Federal Reserve creates “dollars” into existence to fund the US government they charge interest on top of the currency they have created out of nothing.

    That interest NEVER gets put into circulation and into the economy. EVER.

    Therefore, it is mathematically impossible to ever pay off the national debt.

    At best it can only ever become stable. Therefore, it stays at the current level or it increases but it can never decrease.

    Amazing how few American know this but this is the tragedy of human civilisation.

    • Chevrus March 23, 2022 at 10:24 am

      Usury by any other name would tase just as bitter.

  • BB March 17, 2022 at 9:46 pm

    All of these sanctions due to the Russian war in Ukraine seem an awful lot like Covid. Covid was a perfect crisis for the cabal to use to further their plan(s). Eventually we learned that the cabal created the virus and hence the crisis.

    Could the move by Putin also be according to plan? It would mean, I suppose, that Putin is in on the cabal and is doing its bidding. Because this crisis brought on by the economic sanctions against Russia sure seem to fit perfectly into someone’s agenda.

  • Sarah Connor March 17, 2022 at 11:37 pm

    Hey Brandon! What are your thoughts on what will happen to the housing market should stagflation occur? Will prices continue to rise along with interest rates? It’s hard to find any references to this in the past.

    • Gauntlet33 March 18, 2022 at 12:13 pm

      Hey Sarah, I don’t think anyone truly has a crystal ball on that multi-trillion dollar question. I can see arguments for real estate doing a mini-hyperinflation (huge increase in price), and I can see arguments going the other way to deflation (extreme reduction in price). I tend to believe there will be a continued increase in prices, but also couldn’t find historical analysis on the subject although I believe that perhaps real in the US during the stagflationary ’70s was relatively stable in price. However, this time around, I believe the predicted stagflationary event will be MUCH greater and that it will make the Great Depression of the 1930s look like child’s play. So the question for most is: buy, hold, or sell? And since the future is extremely unclear, I think the answer depends on your individual circumstances. I would say that the clearest path is that if you already own with NO mortgage (and extremely very few are likely in this boat), then I would HOLD in order to hedge against inflation. But if you don’t own any real estate, OR if you own with a large mortgage (which as Brandon said may be forced to be paid according to the rate of hyperinflation – see his previous article re Yugoslavia), then who knows?? In the end, I think the decision will depend on whether you individually will be able to make the payments, and that will obviously highly depend on your job security, etc.

        To find real historical & current analysis of house prices check out housingbubble.blog they got their finger on the pulse.

        They have shown/mentioned a chart of house prices going all the way back to ~ the 1500’s. It’s kind of amazing how much of a flat line it is.

        • JustOneGuy March 21, 2022 at 9:34 am

          Howdy Helot,

          An equally interesting comparison was done by a Worthy over at ZH 4-5 years ago. Specifically, that one compares the actual buying price of a Harvard education, a new house and a dozen other such metrics in terms of the GOLD it would cost.
          Startlingly, the prices of all such varied not more than 10% over the last 400 years…except after Roosevelt closed the Gold window temporarily.
          Imagine that, the PRICE of things in DOLLARS always goes UP…but the price in GOLD stays the same. Gee, who’d think it?!

          G’Day Mate….JOG

    • Marty March 20, 2022 at 3:15 pm

      I’ll buy after the recession starts and demand cools off because of less wealth and higher mortgage rates. Housing market probabky won’t crash like 2009, inflation keeps homeowners from being underwater on their mortgages except those who bought at the peak. Those paying high prices now have disposable income they’re not 2008 buyers who can’t afford a house, not going to walk away from a small loss.

  • Jacob March 18, 2022 at 2:35 am

    Hi Brandon, this is the sort of article I’m needing right now. If you have studied the WEF plan, it’s pretty bloody clear. What is scaring me is the talk lately about cyber attacks and ownership of things like bitcoin and even shares vanishing. The WEF make it clear bitcoin will vanish one day but, do you see a time when they wipe the share market, and deeds on home ownership? Will there be markets still, or just what commodities you can store.
    It’s unbelievable that I’m asking these questions…. a few months ago I though house prices would crash, but my gold mining shares would lead to me doing well. I’m not sure any more.
    I’m looking forward to the next article, nice work mate

    • Gauntlet33 March 18, 2022 at 12:54 pm

      @Jacob, I’m interested to hear what Brandon has on the topic, but I just wanted to chime in since I think you have very valid concerns which I’m guessing we all share as I personally think about this all the time.
      Anyway, I believe they want to take your property “legally” by economic duress. In other words, I’ve read and tend to believe that they’ll financially destroy you by putting you into severe debt, and then they’ll agree to waive those debts if you release all rights to all current and future personal property and real estate.
      You may then also have to agree to be jabbed etc. at their whim with the vaccines in order to get the UBI.
      And I think a false flag (whether it’s the deep state or the Russians doesn’t matter to me as they’re essentially one and the same) “cyberattack” will be done to wipeout all cryptocurrencies (I think they need this to declare their need for a safer CBDC), but perhaps not shares in stocks, but I’m not ruling it out.
      Also, I doubt they’ll wipe out records on deeds on real estate since even if they wipe out electronic records, the paper deeds are on record at the County level. But again, they may make paying that mortgage off impossible where you are left with the debt to the lender even after foreclosure.
      Last, I would sell shares of gold and silver miners and instead buy the actual precious metals and keep them somewhere safe in your home (attic, basement, or consider burying them).

      • Jacob March 18, 2022 at 3:16 pm

        Thanks for your reply mate. Yeah, how you see it is how I believe it will play out. I think there will be 10-20% that get out of this with wealth. Havens for the resistance movement…. that’s what my ranch will be. I’ve always saved any coins and small notes I co.e home with. I’m in Australia, we get alot of $2 coins. I feel they will be useful later. 8 years ago when I realised what was coming I had a good chunk of cash ready for a deposit on a house. That ended up buying gold. I had the phyz sitting there for years going sideways. Other money started going into junior explorer’s, which was the best decision I ever made. So, I sold all the phyz, and it’s now in juniors. Luckily I clued on to the EV (bullshit) revolution, and the commodity stocks have done very well. Right now I’m very heavy silver juniors.
        I thought I would spend the next 5 years in the share market. I thought even any properties would be all though loans to keep Max share market exposure.
        In the last month I’m going back to my original mad Max theory, and now converting share market profits into land (once it comes down 50%) is my thinking.
        If anyone has any good ideas for stores of wealth for future trading, I’d love to hear them. I remember seeing years ago Peter Schiff had what looked like a credit card, but it was gold, and broke into little pieces. Haven’t seen such a thing in a long time???
        Now we are here, all us tin foil hatters were right. But now it’s here, I’ve just kicked back into gear, I’m in a rental property, pissy little vege patch, not even chooks for the first time in my adult life. Empty pantry!!! But I set myself up financially while I bided my time.
        ITS TIME!!!!!!!!
        I even stopped coming to this site very often. I’m back Brandon. These article were the ones I got lost in all those years ago, because I knew for fact you were right.

        Well, that turned into a rambling epic 🤣

  • Concerned March 18, 2022 at 10:24 am

    Next major steps in the globalization plan are two solidify opposing world systems. The goal will be to ultimately converge them, but in the meantime, a solid divide will be utilized to create crisis , and therefore justification, towards moving both sides under technocratic control. The Eastern bloc (e.g. BRICs) will use the experimental technocratic state of China as a model. The Western Block (e.g. NATO and Pacific alliances) will also be increasingly moving towards authoritarian technocracy, as we’ve seen during the scamdemic.
    I agree with Brandon that all of the various attacks by our elected officials against our economy and associated liberties will be conducted similar to how he’s outlined it in this article. One part of the reset goal is to transfer wealth from west to east, as we’re witnessing take place under a planned revaluation of both currencies and commodities, and under the long-planned implementation of CBDCs, and all of their associated tyranny.

      Howdy Concerned,
      I concur with your assessment in toto. The ongoing drain of resources from the West allows for the creation of a competing system able to swamp us economically- think here China’s billions of people in tandem with Russia’s inexhaustible natural resources – though as yet perhaps not militarily…though China and Russia are moving at warp speed to overcome any remaining disparities and currently enjoy unequivocal superiority in cutting edge ordinance.
      The US served it’s designated role in WW I & II – to crush all competing systems allowing for Centralization 1.0 while Russia and China were left intact for the next to final act of the play…Version 2.0, which is evolving before our eyes presently.
      Centralization 3.0 – aka Final Game, Set, Match Centralization – can only be brought about if the current Geo-Political divides can be maintained, preferably amplified since it is precisely through the prosecution of Geo-Political tension (including WAR) which allows the PTB to strip-mine all parties involved.
      Think of the role the Rothschilde dynasty played over the last several hundred years; without variance those sold arms and or provided financing to ALL sides in EVERY major conflict, effectively choosing the final victor since they could arbitrarily cease or curtail provisioning either side arbitrarily at any critical juncture. There is perhaps a profound insight to be gleaned from that small snippet of history.

      Cheers…JOG

    And here comes the green agenda, right on que like this crisis was all planned. Prepare for massive shifts in the way and manner we live our lives here, less dissent.

    10 key actions:

    Reduce speed limits on highways by at least 10 km/h

    Impact*: Saves around 290 kb/d of oil use from cars, and an additional 140 kb/d from trucks

    Work from home up to three days a week where possible

    Impact: One day a week saves around 170 kb/d; three days saves around 500 kb/d

    Car-free Sundays in cities

    Impact: Every Sunday saves around 380 kb/d; one Sunday a month saves 95 kb/d

    Make the use of public transport cheaper and incentivise micromobility, walking and cycling

    Impact: Saves around 330 kb/d

    Alternate private car access to roads in large cities

    Impact: Saves around 210 kb/d

    Increase car sharing and adopt practices to reduce fuel use

    Impact: Saves around 470 kb/d

    Promote efficient driving for freight trucks and delivery of goods

    Impact: Saves around 320 kb/d

    Using high-speed and night trains instead of planes where possible

    Impact: Saves around 40 kb/d

    Avoid business air travel where alternative options exist

    Impact: Saves around 260 kb/d

    Reinforce the adoption of electric and more efficient vehicles

    Impact: Saves around 100 kb/d

      I’m happy with most of those proposed changes, in theory. But in conjunction with the overriding tyrany, I’m against all such changes.
      Well, except no more business class travel, keep that one.🤣🤣

    • Steve March 20, 2022 at 8:52 am

      Pete, I’m looking forward to Kerry, Obama, Di Caprio et al adopting all these admirable green habits. Even if it means they have to sell their beachside mansions (“What rising seas?”), yachts the size of navy destroyers and private jets.

      Sabotaging the energy sector we currently have and then providing scant replacement will plunge entire nations into cold dark poverty. I cannot help but to think it is very much by design. Lacking the expertise, I will link this very excellent articles that spells it out clearly.

    Thank you for this article Brandon. “It’s also about fighting back against the inevitable government response to the crisis. They will try to take advantage of people’s pain, and use it to lure those people into slavery.” It’s getting more worse…

    @KRF James AND G33,
    A final matter which zi did NOT address in compounding “Witch’s Brew” for your garden is this; if – for any reason – you’re not sure what the final acid balance is – say you accidentally added too much of either Muratic or Sulphuric – then, after all is completed take just a TINY pinch of Baking Soda between your fingers and sprinkle it into the mixture.
    IF there is ANY visible reaction then the solution is NOT(!!) sufficiently neutralized. PERIOD. VERY slowly add additional Baking Soda bit by bit till no reaction is evident. DO NOT ADD THAT PELL-MELL since the mixture may react violently according to just how much acid remains.

    JOG…BE careful lads!

  • Micharl March 20, 2022 at 4:40 pm

    Brandon, thanks for this article. Would you at some point give your opinion on the likelihood of bank “bail-in’s.” It would not surprise me to have such a thing be part of actions taken along side steps toward UBI. Thank you!

    Rather than Universal Basic Income And Food Rationing, I’d rather Robespierre come for the “elites”.

    Breaking News,
    Per ZH, the American Ambassador to Russia has been notified that – potentially – Diplomatic relations between Russia and the USSA could be severed presently.
    I’ll presume that all the Boys and Girls here understand what happens AFTER that…if it happens.

    I’m curious why stagflation? I think inflation leading to hyperinflation is more plausible as high unemployment is not an issue at play. In fact record numbers are retiring and leaving the work force and there’s currently more demand for workers then there are workers. Combine the very low unemployment with rising interest rates and you have exactly the two signs that indicate very near hyperinflation. That was Germany in 1938.

    • Brandon Smith April 5, 2022 at 4:35 am

      Because multiple sectors of the economy are in deflation while certain sectors including necessities are inflating. GDP and wages are not climbing or at least not keeping pace at all with inflation. Also, unemployment will decline in due course, following retail and manufacturing, which is now declining once again. No, this will be a stagflationary collapse. Prices in necessities like housing, food and energy will remain high while wages, retail and GDP remain in the negative. All the signs have been pointing to it for the past several years. Welcome to a disaster unlike any that has happened before, and which very few economists were able to predict.
