    PANIC STRIKES THE NATION

    Just use a a VPN on the phone or iPad that will bypass it and make the network think you are in another country. I use tunnelbear which is awesome if I'm somewhere in the world and they don't allow certain websites...... 🙄

    Ha, agreed. I think they should be made to pay full tax rates regardless and if they threaten to move their business, then they should be no longer allowed to trade whatsoever in the U.K. Without the customers buying their products, they wouldn't be earning. Massive corporations and famous folk continue to find loopholes to reduce their tax, meanwhile the rest of us fork out full rates. Makes my blood boil. Not to mention individuals like Gary Barlow tax avoiding (legally) and then trying to get public cash for his charity work! And here we are on the borderline of another crisis.

    I get this however, how is it that Amazon only paid 15m tax on 19.8bn on european revenues? Once again the rich and powerful coming out on top.

    Awesome great info, as Vince said as an amateur it's way to risky as it's something I've never done and I've gone pretty much all in on precious metals, as in the past during crashes especially after 2008 they've spiked, and with them always being suppressed by the banks, I'm kinda hoping that gets properly exposed and they then break free (mainly silver)

    Happy with that, but with China calling for a change in the Global currency (US Dollar and them trading oil with the petroyuan system (possibly gold backed) and with Russia and China hoarding gold all of a sudden, wouldn't this be an indication of a currency/monetary system that's gold backed? This would be devastating for the dollar? I saw a few vids way back on thus by a few economists but I can't find them and info has pretty much dried up. But with trade wars increasing and Russian activity on the up, economics between the three superpowers doesn't look great.

    Excellent well done you, I'm sorry I didn't realise the title of the group was "explain a CDO" and others can pick holes in the argument because the OP hasn't explained what one is. So you should know more than others that gathering debts together (mortgages) and selling them on to financial investors didn't work in the past. Tell me that CDOs today aren't made up not only from mortgages, but car loans, credit cards and finance deals, these may have been renamed but effectively still various loans grouped together and sold on to investors? I may not be a stock broker, or fund manager or a CDO desk restructuring extraordinaire but I can read and educate myself enough to know when things aren't going well. still as you say, debt is good! I'll see you back here in a couple of years and you can let me know your thoughts then. That's the trouble Scully, it's always the average man or women that suffers and the banks go on to win again.

    Now it doesn't take a genius to workout how they temporarily recovered from the 2008 crash with these charts. Still think we are in a good place? Near 0% rates and almost 100% debt to GDP?

    Upcoming Recession and financial Crash

    My select news page on the BBC, any good news in that lot? And all hours apart. There is my data and I have hundreds more. The warning signs are everywhere. And people still look to buy property with a 2 yr fixed 2% first time buyer mortgage with 10% deposit, a 30% loan from the Government over 40 yrs on two main incomes! That is utter madness!! What if rates rise What if 1 looses their job What if 1 becomes I'll 40yrs...... 40!!!! 2% is basically free money! 2yr fixed?!?!? That won't be 2% fixed for 40 years and by the banks saying to the applicant "please be aware that the rate is tied in with the Bank Of England Base Rate, and can change when you come to remortgage at the end of your contract, you can loose you home " is not a sufficient affordibility/lending model. People dont care about all the **** on the terms and conditions on an application, they just want the money and lifestyle.

    An article I read last week with CEO of Charles Stanley who manages 30bn who stated central banks have created vast amounts of credit and lowered rates to keep the stock market afloat and to maintain debt management. My point is that this economy is driven only by debt.

    Different?? Really. I had a professor come to where I work to talk about psychology and leadership and he travels the country talking to banks and he also warned that he was seeing the same practices that went on back in the day before the recession, and is almost certain the same mistakes are being made again. Just because I don't have data, doesn't mean people aren't doing it, alot of people close to me are doing it, using credit cards to buy stocks and currency, that was in the news and well known. Yes the stock market is dominated by institutional investors and the same people that own half of London, the same people that will take their money when the markets start to turn and who will loose? The small fry (public) everytime. I mean where has the money that has been pumped into the stock market over the last 10 years come from? It doesn't just reach all time highs from earnings and profits. That money has been borrowed to prop the markets up. Good for the economy?? Nope. I'm genuinely interested in economics and learning all the time and try to research as many sources as possible, I'm not trying to argue with you, I'm genuinely interested in debate and learning from others as to what's going on. It just interests me as people around me are making huge gambles and taking on massive debt while driving nice cars and not having the earnings to back it up, and on the other side the mainstream media and banks are saying everything is rosie. Just doesn't add up. That was a few days ago??? That's the Bank Of England worried about debt being lent to companies with debt?? There are hundreds of these articles over the past 2 years.
