Collapse will be drawn out; +30% per annum increase in silver price not faster

Post  Shelby on Tue Mar 08, 2011 5:41 pm

Why the collapse will be exponential, not power law function

I reasonably sure he is just agreeing that people can't change at an exponential rate, which was my point. That is why I said "sell" at $21 silver in March 2008. It wasn't anything against the argument for silver nor against Jason, it was simply a recognition of human nature.

And this is the problem with the scenarios that expect a quick collapse, afaics they fail to take into account the human nature that can not change that fast. And we are not yet at the point where they must change because the natural systems have collapsed. Quick collapses come at the very end when the natural systems are complete hollow. We still have a hugely productive developing world which is holding up the western world. When the developing world completely breaks loose from these chains, that is when the west will collapse. We are seeing the early stages of this is Middle East, but we've got a long way to go. China has to crash and burn before we can get all the way there. The Chinese people have to overthrow their communist party. That is going to take a while.

Silver is an exponential growth market, not power law (accelerating rate of percentage increase) as is Google Android smart cell phones market. Why? Because people can accelerate the rate that they accept that new technology. There are no vested interest barriers standing in the way.

Long before 1% of U.S. paper dollars tries to buy gold, gold will be going up well over $1000/oz., and silver will be headed up over $50/oz.

Big Picture on depopulation & end times

The logic of which I am sure you are aware, is that if women have less fear of losing children to disease, they will delay childbearing, and they become materialistic and self-centered and then the population shrinks, which is exactly what is happpening to most of Europe.

Yeah I read about that again recently. They learned the natives are not so stupid. They need a much more insideous method. Thanks for mentioning Bill Gates, I had been commenting about him too recently.

Ah so the Gulf oil accident was a test run? Remember they did a test run on Twin Towers several years before 9-11.

I don't want to say I know any of this for sure, I don't want to be delusional about correlation.

But again, I say they can't succeed with any of those if they don't have a mentally broken population. So that is why they will focus on mass media and dumbing the population.

I think they hope to keep the wise rebels to less than a few % of the population, so they can kill us during this next few years. They need to get rid of us, so then they can proceed with dumbing down the rest of the population.

Do you see why I am working on sshhout.com now? And Copute.com too to target the programmers and raise their awareness and power.

Philippines' economic surge is unbalanced

Post  Shelby on Sun Feb 17, 2013 2:12 am

http://www.mpettis.com/2013/02/14/what-ill-be-watching-in-2013/#comment-21493

Shelby commented:
Philippines' economic surge is unbalanced

Continuing on professor Pettis' globalization expansion and contraction model, the crack up boom is now reaching into the Philippines where I am, which is evident to me by a large increase in capital spending on construction, e.g. new shopping malls, retail, and hotel buildings going up every where.

The Philippines seems to have the opposite problem of China, with services share at 54% of the economy and growing three (3) times faster than industry share, with agriculture share stagnant.

The problem is that the highest 10% of income earners contributes 33% of the share. Since exports is dominated (40%) by IC chips which employs few workers relative to GDP share produced, the main income inputs supporting consumption are thus the following all very roughly weighted at 10% share of GDP each.

1. government workers
2. overseas workers
3. tourism
4. call centers and business process outsourcing
5. labor intensive manufacturing exports

If a decade global economic implosion starts sometime between 2015 - 2017 as I expect, sectors 2, 3, and 5 would probably stop growing and even decline. Growth of sectors 4 and 1 would probably slow or stagnate.

In short, the Philippines is too dependent on external economies for the higher valued consumption economy that it is trying to build too fast.

The services economy is predominantly retail and construction serving the above income sectors, and increasing share being driven by debt (although debt not near the saturation level of China and developed countries, except perhaps in Manila vicinity).

Thus, I expect the Philippines to grow too fast and saturate debt in the meantime, then see a significant downturn when the global contagion reaches the implosion point. There will be many bankruptcies in the retail and construction sector.

On the positive side, the Philippines is transitioning to a higher valued service economy, as more workers get higher education, go abroad to work, and work in sector 4. However, many filipino's preference for a guaranteed income has caused them to choose a nursing or teacher education. Healthcare all over the world is nationalized so this sector will fail economically (as all things do when owned by the government). And the future of education is online education and increasing autodidactism, as move more deeper into the computer age as I have been pointing out in my comments over the past months.

Also the success of sector 4 is dependent on the workers in the developed countries being overpaid and paid not to work by their bloated governments, i.e. there is no significant domestic market for this sector to serve. This will moderate if not end with the coming global economic implosion.

The filipinos are not world class engineers (they can not concentrate alone, they need always social stimulation). They are world class performers and they are good with their hands and social interaction, but this is a limited market.

So if you build a consumer economy that is too highly valued for the bulk of the population, then you have an unsustainable economy.

The current government has recognized this and is trying to make strides in education and spreading out development to the lower class. However, the DECS (Dept of Education) itself is a hindrance, because they require nonsense courses that have no relevance in the modern economy and waste half of the education time as well as bore the heck out of the males so much that they males tune out to education and throw spitballs all day. Examples are moral values, history of Jose Rizal (3 semesters in college!), and now reproductive health eugenics top-down waste. Another problem is the culture is too inclusive, refusing to accelerate the best and brightest. It isn't even allowed to test a child to enter college early as I did in the USA. How can an economy expect to have a developed country style level of shopping malls, restaurants, and retail and then have such a backwards educational stance.

Technological shift, national capital base, and the globalization cycle

Post  Shelby on Fri Feb 22, 2013 5:44 am

http://www.mpettis.com/2013/02/21/a-brief-history-of-the-chinese-growth-model/#comment-21573

Shelby replied:
Technological shift, national capital base, and the globalization cycle

Not necessarily more debt, but definitely more capital

Whether from savings or debt, it is capital misallocation to the extent that the pathway of dealing with technological shift is one of maladjustment.

Indeed my point is the largest resource of capital in China is the people (and their savings in form of currency and knowledge, ability attained since birth), and thus this is where the capital is coming from in China, either in the form of low wages (i.e. sustained by suppressing consumer share of GDP) or creation of debt from thin air in fractional reserve fiat system.

My fundamental point is I believe that technological shift drives competition which drives finance, not the other way around. Finance can not change any of the fundamental realities, it just reacts to them, as water flows downhill.

For the USA example, the technological shift of the industrial revolution began in the early 1800s and was causing unemployment with the Luddites. This stimulated migration to the USA seeking better opportunities. The USA's main capital was the wide open frontier of freedom, the untapped natural resources, and the ingenuity and motivation of those willing to seek that land of opportunity. Thus we see a very different result of the way finance flowed when comparing the USA and China. (this is the concept of increased degree-of-freedom and thermodynamics that I keep incorporating in all my theories)

The technological shift now is the computer and that the programmer generates orders-of-magnitude more production than a non-programmer. This made it uneconomic to keep uncreative labor jobs in the high tech countries, and it also meant China was falling exponentially behind the curve in the 1970s when the personal computer was born and by the 1980s when the PC was blasting off. So it was a natural fit of capital, that China would eat the uncreative jobs, but the problem is this did not move China close enough to catching up with the technological shift. It was handing the failure to China. China's limitation was that its capital is not sufficient for it to catch up. The capital of China encourages a top-down system run by 200 families to mine that capital.

There is only one solution for mankind going forward. There is no way for these developing countries to adapt monolithically to the computer age shift, because their capital is too much of an incentive for top-down control. Thus the people individually must escape from their nation-state jails. You can see this with the 1.3 million filipinos leaving to work abroad every year. But the more efficient way is for the people to learn online and then work online too.

Thus the nation-states have been disrupted and will become increasingly economically irrelevant.

Shelby commented:
With my prior points in mind, I continue my analysis of this article.

Chinese development model is an old one, and can trace its roots at least as far back as the “American System” of the 1820s and 1830s
industrial revolutions are not driven by scientific developments but rather by the commercial application ... financial system that seemed to do better than others in financing new infrastructure and technological ventures

The industrial revolution was fixed capital intensive because of the hardware. The software revolution is not fixed capital intensive.

So we needed much financial (savings) capital to direct human resources (via symbiotic balance between fixed capital and consumer spending) into the industrial revolution in the 1800s, but monetary savings is much less useful in the software revolution, where we need knowledge development. Consumer spending can't motivate humans into learning software and actually demotivates it! This is fundamentally why we have ZIRP and competitive currency devaluation. It is not a liquidity problem, it is a technological shift adjustment problem.

China missed the industrial revolution, and is now missing the software revolution, by mining its own capital to build out the antiquated industry.

The contraction of globalization from 1910 to 1944 was caused by the inability of global population to adjust to the mass production age, which resulted from the second stage of the industrial revolution due to network effects stimulated during the primary stage. The contraction from 2000 to probably 2030 or 2040, is being caused by the inability of global population to adjust to the software production age.

I will continue my analysis in a future comment.

Shelby added:
Their vision of economic policymaking was looked down upon as naïve and even foolish by most American academic economists – schooled as they were in the laissez faire doctrines then fashionable in England

If I remember my US History correctly from 32 years ago in high school, the US developed in the 1800s under a laissez faire doctrine that allowed the big capitalists (such as for the construction of the Erie Canal) to do as they wished without government regulatory interference and even with government facilitation.

Note w.r.t. to my prior comment, the construction labor was provided by immigration, another evidence that unlike China, the USA's capital was not human labor.

Many countries in which the academics had real influence at the time...Jean Gustave Courcelle-Seneuil

It wasn't government non-inference (i.e. laissez faire) that caused Chile's problem, but rather either government interference or Seneuil's influence (see the footnotes on page 1) in moving Chile from commodity money with no central bank to the fractional reserve system with a central bank. While the USA had a "free private banking" (i.e. laissez faire) system without a central bank until 1913.

I think what you are really wanting to argue against is liberalism, i.e. socialism and interference of the government in domestic affairs when the government becomes a huge component of the domestic economy as in China.

It was of course the post-War Japanese development model

Wasn't it Douglas MacArthur who taught the Japanese how to improve their manufacturing?

infant industry tariffs

I.e. the laissez faire doctrine, which small government means cooperating with big capitalists by not interfering internally and supporting their needs externally.

a sound system of national finance

USA had no central bank, was on a gold or bimetallic standard, and had a free private banking defacto fractional reserve system.

These three elements are at the heart, explicitly or implicitly, of every variation of the investment-led development model

Yeah but that is for fixed capital development which is irrelevant in the new economy, and China can't have the laissez faire doctrine, because it is dominated by socialism with a huge population that is massively deficient in high tech software knowledge where the new economy is.

Shelby clarified:
Shelby wrote:

I mean China can't have laissez faire doctrine w.r.t. to the software economy, because it threatens the ability of the 200 controlling families to mine their 1.2 billion units of flesh capital. China mines the dexterity of opposing thumbs, because it has not the capital to invest in developing the 1.2 billion minds (instead prefers short-term, myopic strategy, i.e. debt based thinking). It actively suppresses domestically the internet, information, thought, and even the citizens hate copyright. (side note software patents are absurd)

Shelby wrote:

One evidence is Japan which has much faster internet infrastructure than the USA, but is nothing in software.


http://www.mpettis.com/2013/02/21/a-brief-history-of-the-chinese-growth-model/#comment-21581

Shelby continued:
The idea that countries get rich under conditions of free trade has very little historical support

The USA was trading with nearly every country, and the government wasn't restricting it.

Whether the momentum would have been obtained without tariffs is irrelevant to analyzing China, because China needs to leapfrog the industrial revolution and head directly to the software economy. But of course it can't do that monolithically, only individually, but the monolithic system can't allow individual thought and expression.

So China should charge a tax on using the internet sites created outside the country?

Of course not, and because the price of software is not its main advantage, but rather the quality.

But luckily lot of infrastructure is not required to develop a software economy, so it doesn't need to be coddled by government. Software economy needs a hacker culture (which is often confused with cracker, and not anti-property rights) and a government which does not interfere, because the Mythical Man Month points out why software is very individually developed phenomenon.

it is not enough to protect industry from foreign competition. There must be a spur to domestic innovation, and this spur is probably competition

Agreed, i.e. very small laissez faire government.

Problem is that due to the Iron Law of Political Economy and the impossibility of a meritocracy in the collective, very large population relative to other capital, makes it very difficult for the government to remain small. The only hope is for some disruptive technology that bypasses the normal way that societies organize politics, i.e. the internet. So it is not surprising to me that the taipans of China are blocking it

national and state governments design, finance and construct canals, bridges, ports, railroads, toll roads.

Are you sure this is entirely correct? I thought it was the private capitalists (e.g. John D. Rockefeller and his brutal competitiveness in railroads) that were putting up most of the financing and they were paid back through various revenue schemes, some of which were revenue partnerships with the government. There is no doubt they socialized their business methods (e.g. Rockefeller had the politicians in his back pocket), as you point out this is the only way to make such long-term payout NAV calculations viable.

On the topic of the appropriate level of infrastructure in China, I would argue it should be closer to zero. Because in the coming software economy, you don't need it. Hey I am programming from near the tip of tallest mountain in the wild south of the Philippines right now with a $25 3G wireless USB internet connection device and a $600 computer. I only need my $200 battery backup system and a simple hut. In fact, I created Coolpage.com arguably the world's first social network in 1998 from a Nipa Hut and had 1 million users with me as the only employee.

And those all this infrastructure China is building is just inertia for the rest of the population to resist moving into the software economy. In other words, in a NAV calculation looking forward, nearly all the infrastructure is uneconomic.

Well even programmers need basic sanitation, roads, electricity. But we don't need high rises, bullet trains, museums, etc..

Thus I expect China to crash back to this level of basic services infrastructure.

Shelby concluded:
Journey to the West

Agreed on all your points.

A sound system of national finance

USA was private banks and a multitude of private debtors doing fractional reserves behind a bimetallic constitutional gold+silver standard, thus the system was constantly crashing (bank runs) and correcting. This multitude of decisions makers based on a profit motive, means very tight and self-correcting (rapid liquidation for failures) fitness to truly economic opportunities.

China is government (200 taipans) making the decisions on financing with 200 taipan debtors, which means extreme detachment from economic reality and very low fitness.

Comparing development models

I think your first 3 points basically miss the key factor. You get closer to the key factor with point 4 about higher wages.

The key factor in attaining high development is rewarding knowledge creation. You have to value the human mind.

China is so far off course, but that is to be expected from a totalitarian culture.

Dogfree, are you going to continue spouting that nonsense about China's model being different in some superior way?

Shelby replied:
@David Habakkuk
the kind of social model which has been developing in the United States, and elsewhere in the West, over the past decades looks in the context of his arguments about the requirements for successful development. It would seem an interesting question how far the requirements of maintaining the success of a ‘developed’ modern economy are distinct from, or similar to, those of creating such an economy

I wrote in a comment above, "the nation-states have been disrupted and will become increasingly economically irrelevant".

I think the model for development and sustainability is the same. The government has to maintain a laissez faire doctrine w.r.t. to the high-valued knowledge economy. And even with the social model in the USA, you can see enormous resistance to SOPA and PIPA regulation of the internet. Canada's government recently reject such similar bills.

It seems there are enough people (i.e. hackers in the most general definition) involved in knowledge creation (i.e. software) in the developed countries to counter-act the political power of those sucking the tit of statism. And if ever the statists do try to regulate us and limit our ability to code knowledge, we hackers hold all the power. The modern economy would collapse if we stopped working. We always find a clever way to disrupt top-down power that attempts to limit our coding freedom.

I know it is difficult for people to believe that software is invading everything and is so critically important. It isn't just robotics, software is in every creative profession, and increasingly so. Because the computer is the bicycle of the mind.

Those people who don't get with the software age, will fall into relative poverty. And the social systems will be bankrupted and fail and perhaps lead us into a World War 3 result by 2030 or 2040.

Shelby added:
I wrote up-thread the following.

I want to draw attention to your prior article on globalization and my disagreement there with the fundamental driver of globalization.

My fundamental point is I believe that technological shift drives competition which drives finance, not the other way around.

I explained with charts, that the current downturn is due to the maturing of the computer revolution and that the downturn will last for decades. I explained in that linked article how the prior downturn from 1920s to 1940s was caused by mass production from the maturing of the Second Industrial Revolution (which ostensibly began in 1860 with Bessemer Steel).

Martin Armstrong has identified this 78 year cycle in real-estate downturns. The prior case was the downturn from 1850s as the First Industrial Revolution peaked with the peaking of railroad bubbles. Remember real estate value was driven much higher in value when a railroad was built to access it.

The prior two 78 year real estate cycles were caused by two waves of increased agricultural productivity, one peaked at the end of 1600s, and the other peaked 2/3 of the way through the 1700s.

Note how a war resulted from each of these downturns. The US war of independence in the 1770s, the US civil war in the 1860s, World War 3 in the 1940s, and now surely another war to come within a decade or two.

I hope everyone now understands why I am sure my theory is proven by history, and knows what to expect going forward.



The real estate 78 year cycle peaked in 2007, and the Economic Confidence Model (ECM) also turned down 2007, but the ECM turned back up 2011 and real estate model gets a bounce from 2012 to 2015, then both turn down again. The real estate model will not bounce again nor bottom until 2033, which is also when the ECM peaks and crashes. After 2033, we will be a in public wave for the ECM, which is because robotics will have unemployed billions of people. 2033 is also the turning of the 310 year empires cycle!

http://armstrongeconomics.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/a-forecast-for-real-estate-111509.pdf

Originally Armstrong was expecting gold to rise through 2016 after a pullback 2012 - 2013:

http://armstrongeconomics.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/gold-5000-11-7-09.pdf#page=14

Now he is thinking gold will not rise until after the next peak in Real Estate and ECM models in 2015.75:

http://armstrongeconomics.com/2013/02/25/gold-what-now-2/

His reasoning may be due to his expectations for the sovereign debt crisis:

http://armstrongeconomics.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/armstrongeconomics-sovereign-debt-crisis-when-013012.pdf

It appears that all the money the central banks printed from 2008, has been enough to lift the ECM until 2015.75, so now all they have to do is jawbone (move their mouths but not actually print) until the next big crisis comes. Well that crisis is Japan. Japan's real estate model will bottom on 2015, so it is going into its big tailspin, and then it will have to print like mad from 2015 which will finally put a bottom on its real estate market. Note the USA's real estate market won't bottom until 2033. Remember Japan's real estate crash started in 1989 and the real estate crashes in his 78 year model have a 26 year duration.

However, note that the ECM bottomed in 2002.95 (Dec 2002) and gold did not rise from 2004 to nearly the end of 2005. Yet during that period to 2005, gold/silver ratio dropped from 80 to 50, and then by 2007 to 45. In other words, silver could outperform gold to 2015. Remember that gold was rising from LTCM scare in 1998, Y2K scares, and 9/11 terrorist attack, there was a fear of finance crash. But by 2004, the focus had shifted to the real estate bubble, then silver blasted off. So we have similar situation now, as the scares about Europe, China, and USA have subsided for the time being and now the focus in on bubbles in the developing world.

So while the debt crisis may not erupt again until 2015, the inflation may be increasing in the developing world as capital flows are shifting there.

Shelby commented:
I have explained how Armstrong's 78 year real estate cycle ties in with technological unemployment throughout history, including the current downturn which will culminate (bottom) in 2033. These always contain a big war.

Now it is robotics and network effects from the maturing first computer revolution (second computer revolution will be the quantum computer coming in decades from now). For the Great Depression it was mass production which was a network effect from the maturing Second Industrial Revolution. Caused two World Wars. The 26 year downturn in the USA prior to the Civil War was caused by the busting of the railroad speculative bubble which was a network effect from the maturing First Industrial Revolution. The two 78 year cycles before that were due to technological unemployment due to agricultural yields innovation (e.g. soil technology).

I hope someone can email Martin Armstrong and make him aware of my analysis. I think it will help him better understand the events going forward. I know he basically gets this, but I think I have clarified in a unique focus.

Decentralization is exactly the key. China is the antithesis.

Going further off-topic, but tying into the my allegation that billions will need to learn to program due to technological unemployment, 3-D Printed Car Is as Strong as Steel, Half the Weight, and Nearing Production[1] could decentralize (open source) manufacturing.

I remember my grandma thinking I was crazy when I asserted in the early 1990s in the U.S.A. after returning from my first trips to the Philippines (where I had ferried in rusted taxis, suffocated on exhaust fumes, and observed massive poverty), that we could build cars out of plastic and they would be stronger, cheaper, and consumer less fuel. Her legacy bias was disposable plastic housewares.

Crazy I am. Mam.

In the deep south between Indonesia and Manila (where I am), the use of open source browsers is the highest in the world at 3%[2]. This is not correlated only with poverty nor with tribalism (see Somalia). Instead this is the "bahala na" culture of natives in serendipitous environs ("embrace uncertainty by maximizing the breadth of available options"). C.f. the Spider and the Starfish how the Apaches (the first hackers?) appeared to be conquered, rather were in decentralized mode.
