Amazing Echoes of the Twenties

I spent a fair number of hours this week going through the 1928 and 1929 newspaper morgue of the Library of Congress online.
I loved it –  a grand non-numerical way to “sense” the rolling end of the Roaring Twenties and look for plays today that rhyme long-past events.

We’ll get to it, just as soon as headlines, charts, and several cups of the bean get us rolling.

    • George:
      Yearly US progenitor equity pattern:
      (18)/36/91/87 of 89-90/54 year

      Base fractal in 1921: 29 months 2.5x maximum extension
      of 72 months ….
      Base fractal in 2009: 31-32 months maximum 2.5x extension 78-80 months ….

      Otherwise your timing is spot-on for the incipient nonlinear devaluation(low in 19 trading days …)
      Exquisitely precise mathematical monthly, weekly, and daily fractal patterns …

      None of the news is relevant to the necessary causal and inevitable asset debt system macroeconomic decay …

  1. I noticed there hasn’t been any critical coverage of teachers who walked out with the kids instead of staying in the classroom and performing the duties the are paid to do. Also wonder why the kids didn’t protest on their time, like before or after school or during their lunch period.

    • Because, Fred, that’s not part of the liberal gun-grab agenda, then….and the media that pushes it…and….oh, I give up…

    • The Soros Group has 25 years of planning these things under their belts. When you control the media flow and the narrative, as well as the protest organization, you don’t get bad press…

  2. I really like the exterior style and crown of the Chrysler Building and consider it to be one of the more beautiful buildings in NYC. I also like the deco-glass and some furniture from the deco era.

    I can’t say that for the fonts though! There is Arial, and there’s everything else. Everything else takes far longer to read. The point of reading is for information, not for just staring at the font, so I’m down on that. I’ve found that stylized fonts in Chinese are so obscure that I can’t recognize the few characters that I really know well – unless I stare at them for minutes at a time. I can only guess how the Chinese react looking at our array of fonts trying to recognize the basic words.

    The asymtotic end of the Malthusian concern seems to be now replaced with economic calamity! WTF? At least we can predict it, I suppose. Why is it that the least productive parts of the world have the highest birthrate?

    • The rest of us are all working too much. No time to reproduce.
      Besides, we get screwed enough by “The Man.” lol

  3. Hi George,

    Here’s something fascinating – a review regarding “The Chinese Typewriter”, and it’s evolution from fantasy to something beyond Steampunk:

    This is most interesting for both the Eastern and Western reader. It’s yet another example of attempts to formalize right brain constructs into linear concepts, and their various effects on the culture. I thought it was well worth the read and relevant to today’s article.

  4. A friend of mine was telling me the credit unions are selling their loans in preparation for a rescession in 2019. Anybody else hear this.

    • my banker and I were just having coffee the other day and he mentioned that my getting a car right now was probably the best timing..
      He was mentioning that most of the other banks are selling off loans and prepping for a big hike in interest.

  5. In consideration of the apparent Russian attacks in London, I went surfing when news of Adrian Lamo’s death crossed my workspace. There’s no real place to put these, so I’ll toss ’em up here:

    Adrian Lamo, the former hacker, has died at the age of 37, according to a family Facebook post and a report from ZDNet, which cited two of Lamo’s family members and a county coroner.

    It’s not yet known how Lamo died.

    The writeups don’t detail a hundredth of Lamo’s abilities or his contacts with both black and white hats. This is probably nothing, but Lamo was one of those people who could’ve known or learned lots of stuff that’d sign his death warrant, and so I’ll watch the inquest with interest…

    Russian nuclear subs quietly reached US coast & left undetected

    Russian nuclear-powered submarines conducted an exercise near American military bases with the objective of avoiding detection as they came close to the US coast, a submarine squadron commander told a Russian military TV channel.

    Asked if the submarines had managed to stay off the radar during the mission, Starshinov replied: “Yes. This is our objective – to come and go undetected.” The Navy commander said.

    Russia increases nuclear sub fleet, combat patrols reach Soviet-era levels

    Somebody’s fleet isn’t falling apart…
