Like I always say, income inequality is bad enough, but information inequality is what's really eating away at this country.
For instance, a very small group of big bank CEOs, central bank policymakers, and a few other assorted D.C. and Wall Street apparatchiks have information that our economy – and, by extension, our society – may be just days away from seizing up like an engine with all the oil bled out.
You aren't hearing that vital liquidity and credit – the lifeblood and oxygen that make the United States, well, go – are simply… going away. Out with the tide.
