TFMR Podcast #8 - Mike Krieger


Earlier this week, I was able to track down Mike Krieger. If you're a frequent visitor to ZeroHedge, I'm sure you've read his stuff and become a fan.

Let me just say this: Mike seems like a really good dude, which you'll no doubt discover by listening to this podcast. The guy walked away from a bigtime, Wall St job because he could see this trainwreck approaching and he felt that he had to do something to help as many folks as possible to prepare. Sound familiar?

Currently, Mike authors opinion columns once per week. He makes these available free of charge to anyone who would like to be included on the distribution list. He's not selling anything. He doesn't have a newsletter or subscription service. He's simply trying to help in any way he can. If you'd like to be included on his list, simply drop him an email at michael[at]kamlp[dot]com and explain to him who you are and why you'd like to be on the list.

I think you'll enjoy this podcast. TF

@TF Give us Headlines...

Mr. Turd I suggest you create Headlines for your podcasts. Something Turdlike and snazzy to get the twitterers tweets that they're tweeting to perk interest when...tiwtted.

May I recommend for this one "Mike Kreiger On The Broken Financial System" (I'll come up with another one maybe when I've finished listening but this applies to all of your past podcasts too - just saying "TFMR Podcast #8 - Mike Krieger" is okay but a subtitle would kinda spice it up).

Great stuff as usual...thanks.

*edit - You could even have a hat tip poll to name the headlines as visitor participation.

I suppose they could come for old Pat though..

their are probably bigger fish to fry, and I would agree that this life is inherently dangerous. As I came to concur with Krieger interview over 20 years ago, though my sense tells me that TPTB would find little CB wasting resources on a crazy old geezer such as me. Thank you for admonition of my private thoughts, In the future I will try to oblige all the members of this board. God's peace.

would be wise to prepare to bug out by voicing agreement with Krieger's comments. Best you settle down lest they come for you too. Those are dangerous thoughts you be having right there. Pipe down now, you hear.

Krieger would be wise

Mr. Krieger might be wise to keep a low profile, or in the very least be prepared to go to his bug out bunker on a moments notice, as the TPTB understand who the insiders are who might have direct personal knowledge of just what these people do in the financial markets in order to wield and control our world. I recall reading about a man named Jonathan May through another man named Bill Cooper, who found out the hard way over 20 years ago just how diabolical these folks are capable of operating, I found this interview to be most informative and inspiring, God's peace and God's speed to all who embrace liberty.

Fantastic podcast! A huge thanks to Turd and Mike Krieger for sharing their thoughts. I especially enjoyed Mike's perspective of a future QE3 being kept quiet and his thoughts on buying physical metals now rather than waiting for potential pullbacks.

SAD BUT TRUE. Shirtsleeves to shirtsleeves in 3 generations, its a failure of the entire CULTURE.

50 million americans on food stamps. One in four chldren too. let us pray.

Great, great interview

Kudos to Turd and Mike for this interview. It goes into my listings as an instant classic.

Even though he didn't expand very much on it, the importance Mike ascribed at the beginning of the interview to the ZIRP policy in being/bringing on our downfall is something that more people need to understand.

Even more pernicious than manipulating the PM markets, by instituting ZIRP, our government has totally taken out the very mechanism in a free market economy that signals to investors and the public alike the level of efficient resource allocation in the marketplace. We have f*cked up all our resource allocation so badly that most people don't even know what it is any more.

The end result, people, is a command economy. There is no more economic rhyme or reason to investments. There may be political, military, etc., but not economic. This is, I believe, part of what Mike is alluding to when he talks about the bankers and Wall Street literally fighting for their lives. They are manipulating anything and everything to keep the game going. But the game is over. They're managing collapse. And ZIRP is one of the strongest signals that a formerly free market economy has been totally and utterly derailed.

We must stop this clock!

Everyone, pause for a moment and look at this web page:

Until this clock stops, and then reverses, the end will always be getting closer and closer. I wonder at what point it all "pops"?

I agree that it is a dollar

I agree that it is a dollar strong move, but it also is to block China from oil as well. I said the same thing about Iraq and Afghanistan(although big pharma and spook ops got a sweet deal in the opium trade).
