Rank #4: Steve Keen: Could A Debt Jubilee Really Work?

Podcast cover
Read more
Over the past decade, the world’s central banks have distorted the price of money by bringing interest rates to record lows. With credit so cheap, asset prices have risen dramatically as companies and governments have borrowed to the hilt. And now with the Everything Bubble threatening to burst (perhaps in mid-bursting already?), we’re suddenly realizing that the phantom asset price gains were ephemeral, while the debts are permanent. How will the economy cope with dangerously overleveraged nations, industries and households? Not well. To discuss this massive problem and propose some potential solutions is Steve Keen, professor of economics at Kingston University in London and author of Debunking Economics.

Rank #7: Wolf Richter: The Era Of The Fed "Put" Is Over

Podcast cover
Read more
To all those investors expecting the Fed to step in to backstop the recent weakness seen in the stock market, Wolf Richter warns: The cavalry isn't coming. After years of force-feeding too much liquidity into world markets, the central banking cartel is now aware of the Franken-markets it has created. And now with a new head at the US Federal Reserve, and soon at the ECB, central bankers have shifted their priority from supporting asset prices to now actively engineering lower prices. They just don't want prices to drop too far too fast.

Rank #8: Ted Siedle: The Greatest Retirement Crisis In The History Of The World

Podcast cover
Read more
"We are on the precipice of the greatest retirement crisis in the history of the world. And that makes perfect sense because, first of all, we have the largest elderly population in the history of the world. Just focusing on the United States: our elderly are woefully unprepared to retire. And in the decades to come we will witness millions of elderly American's, Baby Boomers and others, slipping into poverty. 'Too frail to work, too poor to retire' will become the new normal for many elderly Americans." So warns pension fraud whistleblower Ted Siedle.

Rank #10: Bethany McLean: Saudi America

Podcast cover

For years now we've been covering the false promise of the American shale oil "miracle". Yes, it has extracted a lot more oil out of American soil that most thought possible. But at an economic loss. And at great environmental cost. If the shale drilling companies can't make any profit, either when oil prices are high or low -- why are we still pursuing shale deposits so aggressively?

Podcast cover

When the dust settled after the Great Financial Crisis, we learned that the big banks had behaved in overtly criminal ways. Yet none of their executives would be held criminally accountable. And while legislation was passed in the aftermath to place restrictions on the 'Too Big To Jail/Fail' banks, it was heavily watered down and has been under attack by finanical system lobbyists ever since. To talk with us today about the perpetual legislative warfare pitting citizens on one side and lobbyists (and many lawmakers) on the other, is Bartlett Naylor.
