  1. One trillion dollars a year would flow to China not the USA DOLLAR.
  2. Demand for dollar based everything would crash.
  3. Demand for china yuan and everything would soar.
  4. The world reserve currency of the dollar since World WAR II is what China seeks to engineer TO YUAN to save themselves OPEC and RUSSIA as their GAME PLAN – TODAY – so they are the  NEW  world reserve currency where all trade must settle in Yuan. Making their economy # 1 ahead of the USA and financing their massive military expansion for communist global rule.
  5. If this took place America would crash into a third world country and have prosperity options dwindle. The USA can not allow this to unfold of course.

How would Trump and America the key ally of Saudi react to all this?

Make no mistake the Saudi trip to Russia set this in motion with PUTIN.


The Politics driving economics is how much the greed of Saudi would be protected if they leave the DOLLAR and USA umbrella and move to China. At least that is how CHINA plays its own play book to SAUDI and all of OPEC.


The problem is though in this OUT RAGE IN TRADE WAR – that – China is economically dependent on America. If America reacts and depreciates trade with China our wave of adjustment would be a crushing Super Crash for China that could not recover in our lifetime.

So how real is all this engineering. China wants to force SAUDI ( out today ) and all of OPEC to follow to abandon the US dollar and oil is paid for in their phony Ponzi yuan communist currency. That will make oil cheaper for China.

Saudi having made so many policy errors is not stupid to such risk taking.

If they abandon the US dollar the trade war escalates immediately.

The end is a COLLAPSE OF THE CHINESE CURRENCY and Saudi goes bankrupt. Truly utterly bankrupt. Short term gain for terminal pain. As Saudi are 100 year planners I don’t see them taking the short term table bet. Why would they. For starters:

1 The IMF warns this week CHINA is heading to a SUPER CRASH that may destroy the world order downing in an unsustainable pile of debt defaults that will soon DEBT BUBBLE Super Crash. Their currency will be worthless. IS worthless.

2. THE US dollar is the strongest by far world trade asset that assures SAUDI of safe harbor over time to work out of their failed market share policy.

3. If Saudi moves out of the US dollar as oil settlement trading – the USA will take that as an economic act of war. Predicting what America will DO is always historic. Others under-estimate America. China is communist and a failed economy. China is on DEBT life support with phony numbers – using 300% debt rising to 500% debt to pay their bills.

4. America would REACT and FAST to Saudi and OPEC and CHINA. Under-estimating the most powerful nation and economy on earth is a risk so high one wonders will Saudi trust BEJING and RUSSIA and join the AXIS of EVIL in the economic WORLD WAR? If they did so American would move to assure destruction of the Chinese threat to the economic world order and system.

5. As China has no ammo left – and Saudi is panic and desperate as we wrote about this week with OPEC falling apart this political issue is also a negotiating position to get AMERICA to cut back shale production to remain in the dollar club. A blatant financial war game with America.

This is what causes world wars.

The money.

Today is BIG NEWS following the PUTIN trip where all this was for sure discussed. Now CHINA has the green light from PUTIN/SAUDI to proceed and the end game is either – protect cartel pricing at 60 or higher oil or threaten the dollar based system.

The problem with this warfare economic firing is that China and Putin near bankruptcy in their nations – failing as communist in all prosperity and growth really – are ending options. They have to fire what they can fire.

The problem IS this missile is a DUD. It has no pay load as their currency is worthless and oil is worth a lot.

Trading in the most asset backed currency on earth versus the phony pony currency of the communist manipulators ( economics here not politics ) is a choice for OPEC AND CHINESE AND WE THINK RUSSIAN BANKRUPTCY.

If they move on this plan it is WORLD WAR III escalating before your very eyes.

The effect on markets and the world will:

  1. Depend on American economic warfare responses.
  2. The Trump DEAL with Saudi to prevent it.

So China and Russia rolled their desperate economic WORLD WAR III dice on the playing table – and the dice are rolling. How they land craps up of 7/11 and the final bet to pay off are all market unknowns.

The world at the top of nations and finance will divide here along alliances with RUSSIA and CHINA and with AMERICA. The divide will occur within:

  1. Common sense as the China misses is a DUD with worthless yuan.
  2. Everyone knows THAT.
  3. Enermies of the USA.
  4. Fence sitters who could go either way.
  5. Real friends and allies uniting together to protect the world system versus a future unknown.

The RISK game is on HIGH NOW.

We’ll wait and report what the markets and what AMERICA does much of which will be private and not in the news. The State Department and White House are in war room mode on this.

Trump of course gets IT like no other President could or would.

YOU and AMERICA ALLIES can bet on Trump assuring AMERICA FIRST and this will not go down without serious battles to follow.

That iS WHAT IS going on OUT THERE TODAY in case your reading the sick com news instead of the real news today.


PS: If you asked me to BET – I would BET SAUDI’s relationship with TRUMP and AMERICA is super glued at so many levels beyond any offer Putin or China can make. Also Saudi is not a culture that reacts to THREAT well. Finally Saudi knows phony worthless currency for oil versus dollar for oil is simply silly and a end game loser over any time frame for them and their people. That is not the solution or way forward. But OPEC is falling apart now and desperate so never assume others will ACT IN THEIR OWN BEST INTEREST. I would bet on the DOLLAR and AMERICA short or long term as an absolute bet.




Deflation is the downward price spiral of wages and asset classes across all levels. Stagflation is when asset classes and wages are stuck for decades influenced by deflationary spirals from deleveraging the massive credit bubbles that created rises in asset classes over decades. Now imploding into market levels versus speculation levels.

If the markets of today were moderated such that the speculative leverage that is presently at record high levels, were removed as a market influence, the crash in asset class values would be substantial. Speculations to accumulate commodity stockpiles in many nations, to corner markets, to influence supply demand such as in fuels, and influence prices artificially, work out of the system through deflationary spirals. The long-term forces of deflationary economics are impossible for nations markets and policies to offset.

For example, the Japanese Crises of the 1980’s became a deflationary spiral for three lost decades of Japanese sinking growth in real terms. The result has been massive loss of economic powers and employment. There remains no end in sight. Even today Japan has failed with all its trillions in policy investments to reset an inflationary upward counterbalance to the continued deflation.

Oil – the cost of everything – now is the manipulation of monopolies like OPEC. The investment of OPEC nations like Saudi by the 100’s of billions to influence price to upward mobility at targets of 60 or higher per barrel this year have lost OPEC market share of a trillion dollars while dropping the price into the $ 40.00’s. DEFLATION. As Oil bed rocks the cost of food, packaging, medicine, transportation, energy, everything.  The deflation of oil from 120 dollars to 49.00 dollars – is not represented by pump prices. Oil has fallen 70% but the pump price is down only 45%. Such counter weights wear out as deflation lingers.

The US has put 11 trillion dollars into its inflationary game plan over ten precious years. We have now lost a decade of real growth and the deflation characteristics of the market are still with us. As free money credit and it’s huge ALL ASSET CLASS BUBBLE comes to a close, the bubbles will burst. This will return market wide deflationary accommodations into the market.

Said another way, asset classes from Real Estate to Equities will adjust price from bubble high’s to market reality in deflationary valuations. If asset classes are spiral downward in value, credit extended assuming asset classes will rise in value, are in many geopolitical postions, disintermediated into super high risk. Bonds and credit bubble defaults must wring their way out of the system to rebalance accounts. This painful process is a feature of longer term deflationary cycles.

Economic recessions tip into depressions globally, based upon the time length of the free money credit speculation price manipulation bubbles across access classes, the ratio of the bubble manipulation and its duration, and the move out of liquidity to support the bubble dynamic in forward ongoing market terms. As margin loans dry up and are called in a downward price cycle of deflation, bubbles burst and real price points begin to unfold in a soaring downward deflation spiral.

Nations have virtually zero financial tools to plan for to offset and to recover or manage downward inflationary spirals as history has shown us in Japan and the GREAT DEPRESSION. World war is economically how nations rebalance accounts and reform inflationary spirals. Very undesired modeling.

Can we while we have time, invent tools and tactics in a new digital fiscal world to combat a massive asset bubble crash, and better manager the next deflationary spiral at a recession versus depression level globally? As an investment banker economist I think YES WE CAN and YES WE MUST but the think tank to do this task work, is not in place and no agency or committee is even working on the core problem.

The world elite class ( Super Money ) knows all this. They profit massively from the BUBBLE until the BUBBLE Crashes utterly. Then they use their wealth to profit massively from the asset deflation. Most inappropriately they alone profit massively from war. A growing community of SUPER WEALTH is seeing the process to rebalance core accounts globally as via a world war. They are planning for a “controlled global depression and a controlled world war”. This idea of a controlled “world war” in today’s dynamic world of super weapons and bioweapons the like of which the world has never used before are so beyond any control that the very idea of a “controlled world war” is itself a feature of some insanity. You can’t make deals and split up the world in some structural economic rebalancing thinking population itself is the enemy of core economics.

On population, the issue is education and only education. We squander brains by loading impossibly bad software on young minds. If we loaded superior software on super learners of today the outcome would be solutions, not problems. For example, GEODESIC DOMES can be constructed under the late engineer Bucky Fuller’s suggested model, to populate cities of millions in the oceans. All self-sustaining and environmentally contributing to the earth. Each city dumb is a park during fair weather and is underwater during storms having no storm damage, no earthquake damage, no environmental damage, no tsunami damage and mankind survives a meteor strike with 100 billion of a population while we move the earth and its life forms to the stars terraforming planets with our new knowledge. Humanity has unlimited capacity and resources if we THINK it all through.

What is broken is the historic financial core system model. Consider this:

  1. Competitive capitalism – is opaque – nontransparent – filled with secrets for elite super money advantages – consolidates wealth until 1% own more than 99% – and is a failed economic system inherited from feudalism. Too many are not educated are poor and sick and starving when all the resources to fix all that are right at hand. It’s a crime and a sin to fail to improve a failed system model.
  2. Communism and socialism are worse. The % of poor starving and sick are always larger and the freedom of individuals is always lower. This system model consolidates wealth where 1% own more than 99% and itself is a failed system model worse in many respects for the masses than competitive capitalism.
  3. COOPERATIVE CAPITALISM within a G 100 Economic Global Constitution of box top rules, is transparent, fully reporting, has no secrets, is self-correcting, precludes unwanted wealth consolidation, maximizes wealth circulations, precludes speculation oary bubbles, and removes speculation from markets and unfair trade practices from markets.

Competitive capitalism exists to advance mindless profits at any cost to institutional power and wealth and market consolidations.

Communism exists to consolidate power to the central state at all costs and to spiral wealth consolidation into state agency and elites at all costs to perpetuate the system.

COOPERATIVE CAPITALISM exists for maximum contribution to a community being served by all entities nations and private public sectors while making surplus or profits  in the contribution super focus to the served community with maximize focus. Huge difference.

As Steve Jobs coined – the phrase – WE HAVE TO THINK DIFFERENT if we wish to have superior outcomes.

My book REDEMPTION THE COOPERATION REVOLUTION is the book of a voluntary movement into COOPERATIVE CAPITALISM for nations. The lawmakers are informed of the box top rules and methods for 12 laws to create the new COOPERATIVE CAPITALISM for nations. The book is now circulating in the world. Those interested in joining the revolution for humanity – we feel as it is core to the economic foundation – the final revolution for us all – to rise and grow into our full potential – just circulate the book to your community. FORM REDEPEMPTION CHAPTERS to vote for COOPERATIVE CAPITALISTIC candidates into office and in a single generation our revolution can and will change the world. For the good and for the better. IDEAS are unstoppable when they are the truth.

Competitive capitalism is a royal class of super-wealthy elites, that take each other’s castles over ( violently ) or by negotiation and threats – just as nobles did in feudalism with knights and weapons – only today the knights and weapons are hostile takeovers with law firms being the knights. I want the bigger castle. This is not being done for maximum contribution to communities served. This is being done for maximum mindless profit consolidation where the fantastically wealthy are addicted to even more consolidations of wealth under their power and control. This system is a flawed system is not good or healthy for people’s nations or the world. It always leads to world war which is fully preventable.

If we cooperate we all prosper together.

If we compete we all perish to together.

Only the elites and Super Wealth ( and not all of them ) will win the wars they are now preparing for.

I know you understand all this. But it is refreshing to have the core truth presented in clear compelling language is it not? Have you seen it all so clearly set forth anywhere else? If not share it for me. With your mail list. Send my URL out and ask folks to subscribe and join the revolution for the truth of it all.

In the end, what you read in the news is spin. All of it.

The truth is financial.

Who is paying for the Wallstreet Journal to be produced or the Washington Post? It is those dollars that are in charge. FOX is not IN CHARGE. If 60 advertisers pull out of the BILL REILY show because the most popular on-air host commanding 450 million dollars of yearly add revenue – has all that cash pull out in ten days – the advertisers paying for BILL RILEY command the agenda and BILL IS FIRED on the spot. BAM. It’s the money folks. The real news is what is the economics behind what your reading. Then you really know. Then you have the truth, not the spin.

So you have to pause and say – what is the financial aspects of this. BECAUSE that is what the lobby work is about that is what the special interest are doing. Following and tracking this is enormous work with teams reporting daily to supply content just for my blog. Which is why it is read by press media financial managers and a growing national leadership group of lawmakers worldwide.

When the really big stuff happens they click HERE to see – what is really going on out there. And we always tell the truth. The whole truth and our readers know and trust this truth. Never political always economic.

Our readers want a better world and collectively want to lead it. They are part of SUPER CHANGE. Part of human revolution made possible by education. By knowing and understanding the CORE SYSTEM TRUTH you never learn in school.

This helps you as a business owner entrepreneur to manage forward safer better business bets. It helps you protect your nest eggs. It helps you in a family and in workspace.

Which is our goal in fostering COOPERATIVE CAPITALISM as the final global system reform for nations?

Competitive capitalism and communism are forms of insanity and are so inefficient it is a sin against all of us the system models are protected and continued without reform. Upgrading these failed system models is the most important work of nations.

Deflation is a spiral started in the system with the second largest economic nation JAPAN in the 1980’s and never solved by JAPAN who failed to completely reform its system as a proper response – now the entire global system of Competitive Capitalism and Communism is locked in a DEFLATION DEATH SPIRAL ECONOMICALLY. This model typically ends with either a bursting of the credit bubble – or a super inflation before the credit bubble burst. When the bubble’s burst the deflation is moved to a depressison worldwide to rebalance accounts. Without a core system reform world war is how accounts are rebalanced historically. All your history is wrong. The cause of all world wars if financial and economic never political. The politics created system abuse when politics led economics versus economics leading politics. COOPERATIVE CAPITALISM self-corrects and precludes politics leading economics once and for all – forever assuring circulation so prosperity is shared appropriately starting with massive ongoing superior software reaching human brains. Lifelong education.

So today we reside in a failed economic  system model creating the largest SUPER BUBBLE in human history made possible by fantastic leverage and digital trading outside regulatory oversights.

The bubble will burst.

Until it does though you are inside the longest boom cycle on recorded historic record with the highest upsides setting records. If that makes you feel safe and secure play on. If your seeing what I”m seeing – follow the advice we have presented in our blogs and create your own safe harbor.

Knowledge is power and you have better knowledge today.

Deflation. 11 Trillion dollars later with ten years of full court press all the thinkers and planners for the FED and the central government in America have failed to put inflation and Humpty dumpty back together again. THE POLICY HAS FAILED UTTERLY and a SUPER BUBBLE is what we have today. No one wants to halt the stampede over the cliff as so many are making so much for a second in time. They are drunk with the SUPER BUBBLE as they always are – see 1929.

Berny Dohrmann – Keeping the TRUTH on BRIGHT just for YOU Today my readers




ISIS in 2017 has lost the war. The large % of their funding has been stripped from them and the budget is drying up. Completely. They can’t restock weapons manpower or pay their teams and feed them.

ISIS is dying a slow ongoing death as insane brains – a global gang – that in history means really nothing.

The lesson is to more rapidly remove insanity from any money or power.

The key leadership has been killed by huge %. The organization is in disarray and fighting inwardly. They KNOW they are LOSERS.

LOSERS cornered to a wall die hard.

In Egypt, we see what they can not do at home. They can still fund a bomb here or there and have a young insane brain die for no reason killing lovely innocent people – why you may ask – because they are truly insane – they are NUTS. That is why.

Looking at the EU the 150 terror instances this generations parent saw are down to around 50 although much more media makes it seem to be more. In terror terms, this generation has fewer terror events than their parents saw as terror has been here forever. Insane Hitler. Insane brains.

They are not political. Religious. Anything. They are damaged insane brains who got lucky and funding and attracted followings as the insane can and do.

Media would serve us all better if they labeled all reporting about ISIS as we do here such that ISIS is insanity in the world. INSANE BRAIN ISIS.

Plus you all get how they are losers. Truly. They have already lost it all. Now it is mopping them up. All of them.

The world is mopping up the insanity.

No one is supporting the insane today.

Isis hacked my blog site a year ago. They didn’t have any sense of humor about my labeling their leadership INSANE. Now that was high praise. I was so proud to be noticed by their insane tribe at the tippy top.

For ISIS the end is coming and will be with great mercy as we delete the insanity. Deletion is the mercy to the insane. They ISIS  are uncurable.

Insanity like the NAZI insanity is like the flu. Master Race. Master Faith. Insane ideas that have no historic life. Insanity is short-lived among all us sane.  A celebration of all humanity and all diversity from God IS SANITY expressed. Punishing diversity in any way is insane. A form of insanity. Expressing itself. You shall know them ( insanity ) by their works.

ISIS has nothing to do with faith or religion. If Allah had any grace for their insanity why are they losers? Allah never loses. They are such LOSERS because they are the ultimate loser and not ALLAH who has not blessed them but is punishing them. Appropriately as is the divine law. ISIS is an insane blaspheme.

We know insanity is contagious.

We must treat insane leadership as a virus we remove like small pox.

Insane leaders use sarin gas. Sane leaders do not.

The lesson to the world is to remove insanity faster because it is merciful and effective. Delay always increases the cost while the insanity is allowed to grow.

Power ( the world powers ) always overcomes  FORCE ( insanity ).  POWER TRUMPS FORCE.

We are so sad for the Christian families at Easter in Egypt the whole world is. Families. Children. mothers. Celebrating their faith. Their holy holiday. Only the insane would enter that space. Terror ? I don’t think so. It is madness expressing its core nature.

Insanity showed up.

The rule in dealing with insanity is: For we who are sane

1. Accept what you can not change it just is.

2. Find the lesson inside it as they are doing in Egypt now.

3. Forgive all the rest and go forward always move forward.

You never forgive what insanity does.

But you forgive their insanity because they are sadly NUTS.

The world is deleting the insane.

That is for sure. That is reality. The reality the insane themselves deny while they disappear. Completely. Faster if media labels them all insane as defining to who and what they are walking among us – that helps. See with new glasses.

They are being deleted From us. The sane. So we can celebate each other and exist in peace beside one another.



NOTE: I try not to write about ISIS much because in the global priorities they ISIS are a small gang of insane brains and have no place in history or the news. I wish terror had a global news black out and they never got press or blog space at all. Sane no?




Since Trump took office in January, the trade with China has fallen by 26% or 8 Billion dollars in one month. That drop was a GUT PUNCH to China trade the world should well take note of.  No coal from Australia cut off from the CYCLONE has China scambling or coal – where – from the USA – smart choice. Expect massive rebalancing from the new COAL TRADE market share Australia is loosing today and the USA is gaining today. Stay tuned. The world is shifting on weather. Exports from the US rose. Imports largely from China fell. The RUN on China you have heard me report upon for two years is quite dramatic. I’ve said investors long in China are going to experience some pain I should suspect.

Why? Well, China policy is slow deliberate and incremental.

US Abuse in IP theft, manufacturing theft through unfair government price supports, and trade balance abuse has gone on too long. The 8 Billion Dollar one month decline in imports from the USA a 26% one month drop in trade with China by the USA marks the TRUMP POLICY at work. Rebalancing the trade deficit where the USA sells as much in China as we buy is a model of economic policy that must be addressed as the present model may not continue for the USA as a matter of economic 101. Investors in China like the old saying – pink sky at morn sailors take warn – INVESTORS TAKE WARN.

Trump seeks MASSIVE CHANGE to the balance of USA accounts, or a trade war with China will begin and that rebalancing will take place. The golden rise of China has come to a dawn. If China cooperates the world wins. If China competes ( which is the Chinese way ) the world loses and the USA WINS and the dollar wins and China will experience a SUPER CRASH.

Will war break out? If it does China will experience a massive destruction of accounts and futures and the USA will profit from the war regardless of the outcome.

I was participating in the leadership of the EU’s most amazing THINK TANK on cooperative economics this last weekend. One comment was thought to provoke. Mr. Dohrmann,  I was asked – why has America not truly won a decisive war in recent memory since Vietnam? The answer – strategically at the outset they were not planning to win – it was all strategic – they were not supposed to win. They were speaking about economics, not politics and the notions with their support made a lot of sense.

The wars today are about rebalancing economic trade issues.

The two nations are seeking a forward outcome. They both have preparation. The competition is:


If you do this you pay with that.

The cooperation outcome is:

If you reward us with this we reward you with that.

In the end, POLICY is about Competition the old economics – the failed economics – or COOPERATION the more effective economics.

Cooperation vs. competition.

Good versus evil really.

That is the game this week – in the mind – and in the outcome of world leadership upon which we all are watching as witnesses. The reports of detail mean nothing. The reports of cooperation versus competition that are deal bound and agreement achievements are the capital of the world’s future – China’s and the USA.

In the end, the USA is seeking a fresh start as the economic abuse is now coming to a close. The USA must sell as much as we buy from China or the trade can not continue as we have known it.

Nothing personal it is just economics. China’s threats on selling our debt and dollars create a yawn. The weapons China possesses in economics are popguns against hydrogen bombs economically the USA possesses.

The unique personality of Donald Trump is nothing like China has known in the past.

One thing you can count upon. This meeting is NOT business as usual.
