Channel Description:

Our goal is to provide reasoned, relevant and often contrarian commentary on topics of international investing, global economic developments and business strategy in a format that is easy to understand and thought provoking. Visit the Blog The Author of Timing Logic writes: I'm an electrical engineer and mathematician by training. My career has spanned diverse areas of expertise from being part of a team which designed the world's most powerful computers to corporate consulting around business transformation and information-based solutions to being a corporate sales and marketing executive in the information technology and business consulting space. I’ve led teams responsible for innovative and transformative solutions and been part of teams that helped set strategy for many of America's greatest companies. A few of my passions are finance, econometrics and quantitative analysis. Over the years I’ve developed risk-based quantitative models and trading systems meant to identify significant investment opportunities as well as periods of extreme risk. My blog is an outlet for another of my passions, writing. I generally consider myself a contrarian. Therefore, many of my rantings are meant to encourage people to question what they believe to be true.

    We certainly live in the most critical times in human history. Modern society is in various degrees of collapse around the world. Something that was written would happen on here before the 2008 collapse. I could go into excrutiating detail on those examples of collapse, but I’ve already done that time and again. Two things to remember during this time as it pertains to this topic. One, we are in a war cycle, again something predicted on here long before pathological lunatics were hurling verbal grenades between countries, and, with the rise of the state in the last century, there has been a mass global migration off of the land into the cities. In other words, people have become reliant on the state unlike at any time in human history. People can’t walk and chew gum at the same time without some authority figure telling them how to do so. The times we live in today have historically seen people eventually leave the cities en masse because the state can no longer take care of them. That dynamic is a direct feeder into a war cycle. read more...

    "Of the tyrant (the state), spies and informers are the principal instruments. War is his favorite occupation for the sake of engrossing the attention of the people and making himself necessary to them as their leader" --Aristotle, over 2000 years agoread more...

    Near the bottom of this post are a few relevant links to some interesting news and data points that never really made the headlines over the last six months. It’s not really a surprise why.  Generally because our masters don’t wish them to. read more...

    One of the points I have made on here over the years is how brainwashed Americans are about the United States military or as our founders noted, standing armies. The military machine has always been corrupt. As just one example, Smedley Butler, a former Marine major general and author of War is a Racket, wrote about it nearly 100 years ago. He wrote, and countless others have articulated since that the military was essentially used to pave the way for corporate domination around the globe. If your eyes are wide open, you can see that more clearly than ever. I’m quite confident the leadership in the military today are some of the most vile people in American society. Compare that to the foot soldier who I’d suppose to generally be decent people. People who are young and naive about serving their country, people who just need a job or people who have no other opportunities in life because they are poor or born into a region of the nation that is stricken with abject poverty.read more...

    I missed Martin Luther King’s birthday by a few days but wanted to get this up regardless. King has been discussed on here as one of the most profound leaders in human history. I was thinking the other day of who would I actually place as America’s greatest leaders. That’s a hard question. There honestly haven’t been that many on a national stage whose actions were so powerfully impacting to all people. Off the top of my head I thought in no particular order-read more...

    This country is a f*cking disaster. Entire swaths of the country look like post-apocalyptic war zones. Most people don’t have enough money to survive more than a week without a job. Even if that job is nothing more than slavery by another name. Don’t buy the nonsense that things are going great. The reason why the stock market is in a massive bubble is that there is no demand for capital; something noted on here many times before the 2008 collapse as an apocalyptic future omen.  In other words, because industrial capitalism is already in systemic failure, all of the money printing done by the Federal Reserve and other central banks is rolling into renter capitalism assets like stocks, bonds and real estate and just blowing prices through the roof.  Every new dollar created just makes the disaster larger.  read more...

    I don’t pay much attention to TV. I’ve noted on here it has been decades since I watched a TV news broadcast. I did watch the Superbowl this weekend. I watched it as much as a sociological experiment as I did for the game. Frankly, I haven’t watched a Superbowl in so long I can’t remember. But, it’s very interesting to gain perspective watching the halftime shows, the TV ads, etc. read more...

    It is no coincidence I posted that the stock market as a percentage of GDP was in the ozone and that Robert Schiller’s earnings calculator were screaming warning signs just weeks before the market started gyrating wildly to the downside in 2018.  There were some external factors pointing to a very overheated market.read more...

    I don’t post often anymore but the world is starting to heat up again. While I’m not a big fan of Donald Trump, I did write on here the day before the elections that if I used history as a guide, he would win the election. No one, and I mean no one, in the mainstream gave that thought even the most remote of possibilities. read more...

    Before I get to my next post where I'll talk about China, the U.S. and trade, just a few remarks of the insanity of this world.  The world certainly is a profoundly interesting place right now.  Not in a good way, either. And, so are the political wranglings in Washington. It appears FBI Director McCabe was investigating the United States Attorney General before he was fired. It appears this may have come at the request of some in Congress but to be honest, I have no idea what the law is around this.I'd imagine the answers can be found online if I really wanted to find out. But, can a few congresspeople seek an investigation of the attorney general and use the FBI? Or, does this need to be voted on by one or both houses of Congress?  Or, what is required to direct the FBI to investigate the AG, whom the FBI reports to?  I don't know off of the top of my head. But, I doubt anyone else does either. That's how bizarre this world is.  read more...

    Just a quick post on an interview with Alan Dershowitz that is completely on point regarding special counsels and how our legal system has been headed down the rabbit hole for generations. The article and interview are here. (A long time theme on here is the ultimate collapse of both political parties in this nation.)read more...

    I want to get up a post on trade, tariffs and China in the coming week or so but I also want to address what is happening in our nation at this very moment. First, some quick remarks about Trump and the investigation into his behavior and then a post about Facebook and the dystopian corporate state.read more...

    I watched about ten minutes of Mark Zuckerberg’s testimony before Congress and that’s about all I needed. To hear the terminology Facebook uses inside of the company and referring to its users as the “community” was very uncomfortable. When he referenced the happiness of the community, it was even more disturbing. Especially, since this is an overriding and incredibly movement within all corporations today. I’ll be talking more about this in an upcoming post on Jefferson’s reference to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It’ll expose just how f*cked up our society is and how ignorant corporations have made us.  read more...

    First off, I have a post written on the “trade wars” we are witnessing today but I need to shorten it a bit. Trade tensions are not going away. For the last dozen years I’ve written extensively of what was coming. It’s now here. The status quo and the economic aristocracy are both fighting to hold onto what they have gained albeit often ill-gotten.  They will fail.read more...
