Apple and Google Declare War – Here's the Secret Winner

Resident tech guru Michael Robinson and I are both big science-fiction fans. Michael likes traditional sci-fi stories, like those of Robert Heinlein and Isaac Asimov. My sci-fi interests are more focused on “Golden Age” radio dramas, “pre-code” comics, and old movies and TV shows… like The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits.

And when Associate Editor Cris Skokna joined our team a few months back, Michael and I were so pleased to discover that he was a sci-fi guy as well that I jokingly dubbed the three of us as “The Trilogy.”

  • Is Japan About to Fire the First Shots in a 1930s Style Currency War? The great currency risk right now is not the "race to the bottom" you hear about, but a full-blown 1930s-style currency war.
    This is not front-page news yet, but I have a sneaking suspicion it will be shortly...
    It's going to blindside Washington and most of Europe, where central bankers, politicians, and economists fail to recognize that events from nearly 100 years ago are now primed to repeat themselves. Worse, it will devastate an entire class of investors who have put their faith in the current economic dogma of endless bailouts and money printing.
    I'll explain what happened in 1931 in a moment. But first, ironically, this currency war won't start because of international problems. Instead, it will be touched off in earnest because of domestic concerns - only not American ones.
