    From CNBC

    Shares of Apple ticked up a half percent after the bell following reports that a Samsung device exploded on a Southwest plane, forcing evacuation of a flight.

    I like to see my stocks rise, of course, but this is taking it to extremes....:wacky:

    Media loves Apple, hates Samsung. Media bias at work.

    Because you never read about these in mainstream media.


    And yet even Jim Cramer calls the Samsung the "FireFone" now.

    Interesting. I have read from other sources where it's considered dangerous to keep any smart phone that has been cracked or otherwise damaged.

    Kurt and his kronies are at it again!!!

    The only way to become wealthy is to SPEND BEYOND YOUR MEANS!!!!

    WASHINGTON – The world is swimming in a record $152 trillion in debt, the IMF said on Wednesday, even as the institution encourages some countries to spend more to boost flagging growth if they can afford it.

    Global debt, both public and private, reached 225 percent of global economic output last year, up from about 200 percent in 2002, the IMF said in its new Fiscal Monitor report.

    The IMF said about two thirds of the 2015 total, or about $100 billion, is owed by private sector borrowers, and noted that rapid increases in private debt often lead to financial crises.

    Why do you guys waste your time with this dude. His existence is based on sucking the udder of the gravy train of debt by being in the massive govt machine. I have to go now, I've wasted my monthly allotment on worthless parasites.

    Helps me refine by debate points and often times I learn different ways of looking at things. I debate a friend on another site (MMT advocate), makes Kurt look like a piker by comparison. (lol)

    Exactly why I responded with senseless blah, blah blah comments. It replicates the absurd laziness of printing massive amounts of fiat thinking there's is no cost to just print trillions more. Reminds me of a Proverb of the sluggard so lazy as not being able to even lift his head from his bowl of food. Fools and sluggards should be treated with distain, ridicule, avoidance, and condemnation, almost like they are invisible. Printing and debt is lazy and foolish versus laboring and saving is sacrifice and wisdom.

    That's because when you blow up their central bank, gold doesn't flutter and burn up like paper money like it did several months ago. PMs can be recollected amongst the ruins. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...dollars-used-pay-terror-group-s-fighters.html

    Am I missing your point? The Central Bank can order more money to be printed to replace the money that gets destroyed.

    V. Kurt Bellman Yes, I'm blunt! Get over your "feeeeelings".

    That would require the Austrian adherents here to have a point, which they do not. All they have is the hysterical rantings of long-dead Austrian School writers who have repeatedly been proven wrong, and quite literally out of their minds, decades ago.

    They actually use their heroes' long-dead status as a badge of honor, because nobody in the profession even bothers taking time to even think about debunking Austrian School beliefs because it's already Q.E.D. They were wrong. They are dead. Good riddance.

    Austrian School is a political cult, nothing more.

    By this logic, I could also post pictures of zinc coins, aluminum coins, plastic coins, wampum beads, all of which exist. It proves what? It proves money is whatever society says it is. We used to think blood letting and electrical shock for stomach ailments were medicine, too, and at the same time thought gold was money. We learned better on both matters.

    No, Keynesianism is a paradigm held valid by at least 95% of the economics profession, and until extremely recently was not even considered disputable. Then the "new ultra right" broke faith.

    I've posted this before. Sorry for being repetitive, but I believe we need a reminder. IMHO, of course.

    the point was in reference to ISIL aka ISIS aka Daesh .. the terror group.

    I don't know but I though ISIS's "Central Bank" doesn't print money ... they stored various currencies from selling oil, etc. They did apparently smelt their own gold coins to pay fighters. So when the money literally burns they can't just print more, but they can collect the PM.
