World Chaos – Global Success Story?
The Daily Bell – by Staff Report
Crunch time approaches for world economy … There was a belated admission from Mervyn King (left) on Wednesday; ignore the Inflation Report, he seemed to be saying, because its forecasts may amount to no more than tomorrow’s chip paper. The Bank of England, headed by King, has had its credibility tested close to destruction by its repeated failure to meet the inflation remit. OK, so of course he didn’t use those exact words, but rarely has the Bank of England’s Governor hedged his quarterly update with so many conditions and caveats. Given the record, which for the past three years has pretty consistently seen the Bank miss both its inflation and growth forecasts, you might think him wise to do so. In any case, “uncertainty” of outlook was the Governor’s preferred message du jour. Looking at the range of challenges faced by both the domestic and world economy, few would fault his diagnosis. Markets took the slightly higher forecasts for both inflation and growth to mean there was now less chance of further quantitative easing, but that wasn’t what Mr. King was trying to say. – UK Telegraph

Free-Market Analysis: The most important thing in the world from our out point of view as professional “meme watchers” is figuring out whether the current global chaotic economic situation is in some sense created or whether it has somehow spun out of control. Perhaps both at the same time? In other words, the creation of chaos brings with it the danger of a chaotic system that the power elite cannot easily handle. Thus the creation of chaos becomes a bet: It is or will be controllable over time and lead to that most cherished or all elite goals … one-world government.
