Old and Gray will write opinions, analysis and provide several forums on the various aspects of the new global economy and the increasingly and "unmanagably" complex world of OTC and other financial derivatives and the associated regulatory, technical, macro-economic and the many factors of this. He will also say whatever the hell else he has to say. This is Duffminster writing this description and it will likely change once Old and Gray gets online. Old and Gray is a distinguished, published and well respected economist who has written about the growing role of technology and "virtual money", i.e. fiduciary media and its role in the modern economic world. He became quite well known as well for his Tsunami Thread at the MSN Money "Market Talk with Jim Jubak" message boards, one of the most widely read financial and economic message boards in the world.
This thread is supplement to the "Tsunami" thread over on the not market talk boards. When you consider that three out of the four top "too big to fail" banks that were bailed out by US tax payers are now somewhere between two and three times bigger than they were before the financial crisis, with their CEO's and top executives receiving record bonuses even as average US citizens and citizens throughout the western world continue to suffer from the economic destruction caused by the same institutions, it is clear that something is very rotten in Denmark. Old and Gray seeks to illuminate the mechanisms and tactics of these organizations and also to provide suggestions for solutions to the problems, while also evaluating the strengths, weaknesses and opportunities provided by currently proposed solutions by the various monetary authorities and internatinoal governing bodies. This is a great place for those seeking to understand what is at the root of the current global financial and economic instabilities and to ask questions of someone who will answer most germane questions of sincere seekers.

Discussing the Growing Practices of the US Government to Act Increasingly Like its Communist Counterparts in China and Russia in Regard to Freedom of Speech, and finding new ways to suppress the Truth of the Massive Corruption and Growing Tyranny of this Nation of People who still believe we are the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave. Let Us Speak Bravely to the Growing Nazi Like Growth of an ever growing Gestapo, Authoritarian Police State which seeks to limit Freedom, Free Speech and the Dissemination of the Truth. When Corruption Reaches these Levels and Politicians work only for the Tyrants we have an Obligation to Peaceful Resistance and to do with the full comitment of our soul's. They can take our lives, but they can not take our liberty.

Here we discuss the Broken and Purely Greed Driven Medical System in the United States, which is maintained through the near complete corruption of Congress and the "Regulatory Agencies" that "oversee" them. We talk about alternative systems, new breakthroughs that will soon render much of the current Pharmaceutical industry "non applicable to human health," and the political and other ramifications therein.
Here we evaluate the emerging and scientifically verified developments in stem cell and alternative therapies which are being adopted globally at an accelerating rate, even as the U.S and its "regulatory agencies" studiously ignore the truth and do the bidding of their pharmaceutical and other big money masters.

Here we discuss continuing efforts by the Government to drill into the data and details of American citizens personal lives without real warrants or probable cause and at the same time they want to shut down any transparency and the Whistle Blowers who want to report on the daily crimes of our increasingly corrupt government. Sound like out and out hypocrisy and an attack on American Values of Freedom, Civil Liberties, the Right to Privacy and so on? Me too.

This Forum is dedicated to topics dealing with Politics and What Liberals need to do to counter the highly organized conservative messaging machine.
Here is a forum dedicated to the work of George Lakoff and his message to liberals and Democrats to get their semantics and messaging into an effective form that resonates with all humans by speaking from a place of humane ethics and morality and focus less on strictly rationale argument, which most average people, especially in the United States, simply ignore. George Lakoff is the author of The Political Mind, Moral Politics, Don't Think of an Elephant!, Whose Freedom?, and Thinking Points (with the Rockridge Institute staff). He is Richard and Rhoda Goldman Distinguished Professor of Cognitive Science and Linguistics at the University of California at Berkeley.

Here we discuss any conspiracy that is even vaguely plausible and hasn't been irrefutably proven false.
This forum is to discuss the specifics surrounding the influence of a conservative Republican and highly partisan and corrupt supreme court in thwarting the will of the People of the United States in the 2000 election. We also evaluate the many examples of how the Supreme Court is acting more and more like a direct extension of the Republican party and its corporate interests rather than a dedicated group of civil servants with love and incorruptible determination to defend the constitution, uphold the a priori principles of liberty, freedom, social and moral justice and the true intent of the Constitution, to protect the commonwealth.

Here we have forums to allow non-violent activists and activists organizations and those considering becoming public citizens to get involved in "doing something" to prevent the continuing decay of corruption from taking our nation down the road of perdition.
These forums are dedicated to an on going discussion of Wikileaks and the revelations of the information that has been and continues to be released by Wiki Leaks. We'll also discuss the legal, moral and other aspects of Wiki Leaks and how Wiki Leaks is more a manifestation of the right wing conservative corporate majority's crushing the previous protections once afforded anonymous and other sources for the media.
We drill down into the growing revelations from Wikileaks in regard to information provided from Banking Whistle Blowers
