It’s August – and the tension about what’s coming in a busy fall is rising. Some of the tension is created by the forces of disinformation as part of ongoing economic warfare and control games. In part, creating higher drama levels gives Mr. Global the psychic storm he wants to use for the UN meeting in September.
Some tension comes from the fact that a lot of cans have been kicked for too long. We are having to face up to global debt problems – plunging commodities prices will make that a tricky business. And, of course, the Fear Porn purveyors are out in full force.
I will be talking about these issues tonight on Money and Markets as well as in my upcoming interview with Richard Dolan this month.
As background, I thought it would help to list some of the important initiatives underway as well as upcoming events which will impact global financial markets.
