Your Guide to the New Economy

11/22/202149 Comments

Congratulations! You've spent the last 14 years or so since the Global Financial Crisis getting up to speed on all the financial lingo, and now you can finally wrap your mind around the reality inversion bubble and explain the intricacies of the ratings game and bore people at cocktail parties with a detailed account of how HFTs are ruining the markets.

Good work!

. . . But guess what? That's all outdated!

As I pointed out last week, we are entering into a Brave New Neofeudal Net Zero Economy, and all the verities of the old economic order are being thrown out the window. Make no mistake: they don't call it a "New World Order" for nothing and they aren't kidding around when they call for a "Great Reset."

Yes, the world is changing fast in this decade of transformation, and now there's a bewildering new array of acronyms and asset classes to learn about. So buckle up and get ready for a crash course in the new (slave) economy.

In this week's edition of The Corbett Report Subscriber, James takes you on a whirlwind tour of the new (neofeudal) economy. Afterward, stick around for recommended reading, listening and viewing and get access to the coupon code for 25% off Corbett Report DVDs at the new New World Next Week shop.

    I wonder if anyone here thinks NFTs are legit…

    Sound money was always the deal, guys. 50 fiat years are over and so is that system. I want to ask Christine Lagarde for UBI paid in gold.

    Why can’t we have that? It’s almost like you don’t want to help, Christine!
    Didn’t you think of ways to improve the world during those Bilderberg meetings?

    What is this?! Unelected criminals are making decisions over how I must live?

    Quit hogging the money printer. Let us have a go. Making money from nothing and expecting the world to give you stuff for it (or else!) was a good scam while it lasted.

    Now all you’ve got left is pretense and make-believe.

    Silver and Gold did not end the FED. They were present at the start of it, now look where we got.

    • Duck says:

      If the FED was forced to transact in money backed by gold, silver, wheat, coal, or anything real they could not magic money out of nothing…or at least not as much as now.
      Government can ruin the money just as well as bankers can- human greed and love of free gifts does that every time and every place

  2. Steve Smith says:

    I don’t know why but when I hear NFTs, I think about that old scam about naming a star after someone..
    You get a certificate and everything!

    Personally, I’d say the moment when we hand something over, like dollars to a cashier or a baton to the next marathon runner, or a flower to a darling,, its the literal physical passing from hand to hand that comes with a flash of trust, that we agree,, for me, the agreement is the money.

    we are trust.

    Which is not to say that one can survive just running around and agreeing; Its a wild jungle-scape on this hurling mango of a spaceship; good manners/respect can get one past the bulk of the dangers, and fair exchange is a way to build trust & promote that perspective.

    once again, digital exchange gives the agreement moment to Hal and other strangers who think they own Hal. Just more deadening dullard digital dungery

  4. Joseph says:

    I completely agree! Developing an alternative monetary system is more important than ever! It is basically race against the time!

    • Duck says:

      You can not create a ‘trustless’ system of money (like paper cash or bitcoin or whatever which do not require the parties to know each other) unless you have state levels of coercive power…the Amish could have zero cash and still do business with each other a ton.
      People need to think much smaller scale about community Projects- but as long as the broken fiat system looks like it’s h
      Gonna keep supplying calories and dopamine most people will take the fake over the real

      • Joseph says:

        Yes, and it is starting to become visible, at least in Europe, by every passing day. Governments learned the strategy from the Bilderberg group how to advance slowly only taking tiny steps hoping that people will not notice to force them into rules they would not agree to otherwise. The coercion, blackmail, and enforcement will just escalate further. By now it slowly becomes evident that most of the European countries are planning 100% mandatory vaccination regularly every Nth months and probably those who will not take it will be left behind on the side of the road…

      • Alchemist says:

        Definitely. You should look a person in the eye when transacting.

  5. EngineeredPhilosopher says:

    This green investment hype what else is it than a modern type sale of indulgences?
    As the human being does not change, history repeats, repeats, repeats.

    • EngineeredPhilosopher says:

      As long as the majority of the people is happy enough with the system they have. As long as the authorities pay, lead, entertain, clothe, feed, heat the house and give fancy promises for the future, change ain’t gonna happen. As long as the people fear to lose all these conveniences when the system dies, change ain’t gonna happen. As long as science and technology seems to ease the daily human suffering to some degree, the people will adore – even sanctify it.

      One can see this beautifully at work when playing modern age online (pay to win-)games. These systems are like a microcosm of the modern day real world – sometimes even pioneers and role models for it. The game companies are ‘psyoping’ and ‘gaming’ their playerbase to no end, seduce, entice, even deceive it so they pay and play. But t h e p l a y e r s h a v e f u n. This is what they want even knowing that they are addicted to the game.

      For the majority of the people, the system is still doing its job and having generally low standards, one is not compelled to object. Someone who only pretends to be asleep cannot wake up.

      • GHT says:

        I agree with EngineeredPhilosopher. There will be no change as long as you are dependent on their system. As long as you need that Grain to feed the animals at the store you buy from your trapped. If you think you own your land stop paying for it and see what happens (taxes).

        The way I see it is we have to be able to live in a primitive state again. With no Electricity, Money, or any convinces of this age. I know that sounds crazy but I am trying to get there. But why would you want to go down to this level of living?

        Having this Knowledge will help all of us in this group to not be tempted with the leisure life offered by the Elite class. In short if they got nothing to sell me or nothing to offer me that I need, then I can make the clear choices and just walk away from this crap.

        Now I am aware that Violence will be used for those not on their program. Not many answers to that except be prepare for that in the way that fits you.

        • EngineeredPhilosopher says:

          Systemic violence…

          It is not that easy for the system. It has to rely mainly on soft-power.
          It cannot go all-out evil. It has to keep up appearances.

          This is why to make the system show its true and inherently violent face is such an effective way of calling it out. If, and only if, it can be done peacefully.

          • Duck says:

            KipSystemic violence is very easy for the system… it will always be cheaper and safer for an established ruling class to use soft power.
            You see the massive violence when
            A)The system is doing a change of bosses
            B)The system is breaking down and losing control.

            The west, and North America particularly are having Both things happen at once….You think the BLM riots were not 109% under the control of the ruling class? Expect way more street violence in the coming years…and now they are washing out people who won’t vax from the gov people with guns?

          • GHT says:

            Not really talking about systemic violence. Its more like A dictator type absolute control government type of violence.

            We lost the battle here in the US of A a long time ago. Dont pay taxes on property they come flying in and take it by force and you have to work real hard to stay alive (even when unarmed).

            Force is what is preventing many communities to grow any bigger then a few people.

            You will need mass non compliance in the places that count. W have the slavery now. Trying to break out of this prison is the goal of many, but Force is always around the corner.

        • Alchemist says:


          You’re right, except I don’t consider an Amish way of life “down a level”. At this point “regress” would be progress. Convenience is a killer; it makes us fat, lazy, unhealthy, and has torn apart society. We live in an unnatural way that doesn’t serve us. If more men did manual labor on their own homesteads and got their physical energy out in a productive way, maybe there would be less violence. If women slowed down to nurture their families instead of prioritizing career, then maybe everyone would feel happier and more loved. We were naturally built to play certain roles. If we stop fighting against our nature, we might find life to be more fulfilling. But instead the idea of staying home with children has become abhorrent and hard-working men aren’t valued as much as money-making men. We live in a world where glamour trumps substance; where we’re always going going going to get more more more and never stop to smell the roses. No satisfaction. Is this really better than living a simple life? I don’t think so. What we’re experiencing now is just the push we needed to do something that should have been done a long time ago.

          • GHT says:

            I don’t consider it a “Level Down” Just that its hard for the Cattle to break from the comforts of the house that was built for them.

            Every thing you mentioned I agree Fully with you and its my goal to get there. I wish I can find more like minded people in my Area and I am deep in a rural area.

            I read your statement again. Its good and I agree.

            • Alchemist says:

              I live in the suburbs, so that makes achieving this lifestyle tricky, but I’m doing the best I can. Yes, the biggest challenge is finding signs of human life amidst the sea of mooing cows.

              • LastHumanist says:

                A biological human is never cattle.
                Either all human life has value, or none has value.

                All are equal in dignity and should only be differentiated according to their actions. Misdeeds should be punished and good deeds rewarded.

                Even if you think of others as “cows”, it is ultimately in your own interest to pretend otherwise.

              • Alchemist says:

                You’re right. That wasn’t nice. Sorry for saying that.

              • LastHumanist says:

                It’s only human to lose patience.
                I was angry for quite some time myself, as I watched all those lines being crossed in 2020.

                However, I always strive to be better and overcome.
                Self-improvement leads to world improvement.
                Slowly but surely.

                Why should it matter that there are people who seek negativity and a path of destruction when we have found a better way for ourselves? The grass is greener on the right side of history. Someday, the cows will come to graze there. I would like to see the day but even if I died at this very moment, I would be content overall with the choices I have made in life as they were a small contribution towards a greater good.

                Come to think of it, these past 2 years have vindicated my previous life choices more than anything. I never cared for the money and the power. It’s all hollow. My pursuits of truth and beauty would have been impossible without suffering, including that of other people. I am ever grateful for the milk and wish the cows well.

  6. Duck says:

    The devil always wants to counterfeit and copy… it’s no wonder that people obsessed with kabbalah and hacking Gods rules like it’s a computer game have managed to blow the financial bubble up so big that even they are scared to see it pop

  7. Fact Checker says:

    “We have two choices: develop an alternative monetary system or live under a system of total economic enslavement. The choice is ours to make . . . for now.”

    I find the phrase “economic enslavement” very odd in this passage. It’s a sort of deceptive euphemism: it ostensibly acts as a figurative emphasizer, as if likening the coming digital-finance paradigm to “slavery” is dramatic hyperbole…but it actually functions to soften the reality. It softens reality by suggesting that “economic enslavement” is something less severe than just outright enslavement.

    But really, the system the article describes is just enslavement. Period. No qualifiers.

    And we’re already IN that enslavement. These announcements are merely elaborating the evolving form that our (already-consummated) slavery will soon take. The “New Economy” isn’t the trap, it’s the carcass-processing facility. (The trap was agricultural and industrial society, and it was sprung generations ago. We’ve all been livestock ever since. Now, we’re just being processed and either culled or rendered into the final products to be delivered to the end-users.)

    We are not headed toward “economic slavery,” but instead we are already living in just plain old slavery. In fact, I don’t know what “economic slavery” means at all. One is either a slave or not. Slavery is an economic arrangement. The one we’re in.

    Now as for this “choice” business: there is no choice. Now, or ever. All this talk of “alternative currencies” and so forth is all reducible, in the end, to subsistence farming. Even meager barter cannot exist outside the prevailing techno-tyranny, because even arranging for trades using the internet is all completely transparent to and monitored by enforcers for the state. You can resort to any “alternative currency” you might select, from sea shells to pogs, but it’s all in view of the panopticon, and everything you have or accumulate is subject to confiscation the moment you run afoul of the tax-and-regulate superstructure.

    So, that leaves people with subsistence farming, and bartering with only those in one’s immediate vicinity. Even if you were to gather some micro-community like this, your “alternative system” is only as strong as the arms you can wield to defend it from state enforcers. So it would require a massive arsenal of weaponry which would far exceed the humble and hardscrabble promise of self-imposed peasantry in the “agorist” micro-community. Plus, long before you were able to accumulate the necessary arsenal, your purchases would attract the FBI/BATF Eye of Sauron, and make a conspicuous sitting duck of your agoristic village.

    • cu.h.j says:

      I agree with most of this FC. When you say ” Even if you were to gather some micro-community like this, your “alternative system” is only as strong as the arms you can wield to defend it from state enforcers. So it would require a massive arsenal of weaponry which would far exceed the humble and hardscrabble promise of self-imposed peasantry in the “agorist” micro-community.” I think you might be underestimating peoples self defense capabilities a little.

      The weaponry the military has certainly out guns civilians and they have nukes and drones and all that stuff. But do you really see a military style assault against citizens in the US? There are states who are rebelling against the mandates. There are members of the military against this. I don’t see the military doing this in the US. It’s not easy enough. They would take casualties in a ground assault. What I see unfolding is a civil conflict between states and counties.

      A highly skilled military officer with advanced training could gain the upper hand. They want to manage the perception of this operation. An all out massacre would be bad pr.

      • Fact Checker says:


        If you don’t pay taxes to them, they will deploy escalating waves of force as necessary in order to punish, destroy, and make an example out of any such “alternative community.” If even a single armed government agent were killed or wounded in an enforcement action, this would be seen as carte blanche license to the government to lay waste to the entire “agorist settlement.”

        Waco and Ruby Ridge weren’t so much “bad PR” as they were “made examples of”.

        • LastHumanist says:

          If this were your outlook, why do you even go on living and bother the rest of us with your boundless negativity? Something doesn’t quite add up about you, does it? You must really want the world to become a totalitarian technocracy. Well, this system will never deliver on the sales pitch you bought. It will simply continue harming innocent children up to the point that it self-destructs.

          You can tell posterity how you were cheering on the NWO and failing as a human being. Or were you always “the resistance” once the tide turns?

          People will come to their own conclusions.
          I know I have.

          • LastHumanist says:

            Here’s what does not add up:

            If you believed that the NWO is both inevitable and evil why would you go on living? Wouldn’t you despair and choose suicide?

            Either you believe it is not inevitable, which means that all the overstated drama you post is just edgy BS or you pray for it to really come into existence because you think that it would be great.

            Either way, I don’t really see a possibility for you to not be a repulsive individual. You are among the ranks of the enemies of humanity and that’s a choice.

          • GHT says:

            I think Fact Checker is talking about the currant rule of Violence the Government is very eager to dish out. I know I worked for the military and the Government contracting after I got out many moons ago. They will create ways just to use their Violence on you.

            These days I am not advocating Violence at all for ME and My Family. Can not fight with a bunch of kids under 7. It is more about evading and doing with less since time is against us all.

            Nothing negative from those post from Fact Checker only an acknowledgement of the crap we are in. Time to ween off Comfort and learn as much as you can on many subjects.

            People just can not see just how bad it is.

            • LastHumanist says:

              You didn’t see many of these FC posts yet, did you?
              Look and you’ll see a pattern.

              • GHT says:

                I have. I do not agree with him on all subjects at all. But I know this game of Violence well enough to know how they use it.

                I want Unity in our small groups but I am a realist and see it as I see it. I can only hope others see it as well so more longer term plans can be made.

                I judge every post for its content and many other posts from Fact Checker I do not agree with but He is making some points on these.

              • LastHumanist says:

                Yes, these are generally the points the WEF makes.

            “…this system will … simply continue harming innocent children up to the point that it self-destructs.”

            More delusional hopium delirium. This is the big one, for all the cookies. We’re past check-mate, and all this talk of breakaway societies and alternative economies is just sad self-hypnosis.

            Aldous Huxley: “There seems to be no good reason why a thoroughly scientific dictatorship should ever be overthrown.”

            It is time to gracefully face the facts. There are only a few concrete steps we can take: 1.) accept reality; 2.) resist the injections; 3.) refrain from cursing any more children with birth into this infernal nightmare of pain, terror and certain death; and 4.) try to position oneself for an ethical and swift exit that avoids torture.

            Besides refraining from breeding, these seemingly humble goals will become extremely difficult to realize. Very soon all dissidents will be facing brutal, pseudo-medical experimental torture and forced poison injections, and those unfortunate enough to have children will also be saddled with the knowledge that those children have become wards of the cannibalistic State, and that the State will visit torment, violation, and cruelty on them worse than anything we have yet seen. Today’s children will be medically transformed into sub-human fleshpoid pleasure-slaves to Saudi princes, Chinese bureaucrats and WEFster oligarchs.

            Wasting time and energy on trying to build A Whole! New! Civilization! is not just futile and silly, but it will inevitably lead to more suffering since it will just create more things that we will witness being destroyed. Worst of all, this style of false hope might persuade people to have more children, who will be nothing more than chattel slaves of tender flesh to be rendered directly upon birth into the merciless maw of the Machine.

            “Posterity” will be nothing but broken, benighted sub-human beings whose misery and agony will be so great that the only wish they would have is that they were never born…except they won’t even have ego-boundaries sufficient to be capable of forming thoughts or wishes of their own at all. They will just exist in a state of semi-conscious torment that

    • Joseph says:

      I would say that if you build up something that serves well a group of people and then if the authority comes to take it away and to destroy it, that is no longer called a civilized society, not even close to anything called a functioning governmental structure. That is rather more close to the utter tyrannical dictatorship, which has no right for existence.

      If it is what will hinder you from building something better, then it is already lost, lost inside the head. No wonder that somebody lately in US said (I can not recall at this moment who that was) that the wars of the future will be fought inside the minds.

      If anybody can come and take things away just because, then that would be like something the movie Mad Max depicted. The complete lawless anarchy. And yet, it exists in today’s world. Hopefully things like it will be visible for everybody, soon!

      Though there are things worth fighting for! Once Ella Baker said: “Give light and people will find the way.”

      • Fact Checker says:

        Joseph: “I would say that if you build up something that serves well a group of people and then if the authority comes to take it away and to destroy it, that is no longer called a civilized society, not even close to anything called a functioning governmental structure.”

        You mean like how the government already laid waste to the previously thriving economy of the entire country, under the pretext of “pandemicz!!!1111!!!1”?

        We are way past “lawlessness.” We are now in the slaughter phase.
        The “functitoning government structure” now only “functions” to grind down and liquidate the masses with a host of merciless kill-and-maim operations. It’s way worse than Mad Max because the full force of the technocratic state is intact and ruthlessly energetic. It’s not “anarchy,” it’s ruthlessly efficient, industrialized, institutionalized democide.

      • GHT says:

        What you describe ​Joseph is what we have been living in for decades.

        Look at the Law system they created over time. Asset Forfeiture and eminent domain come to mind. All backed by real Violence in every case its used. People need to understand the water is boiling not luke warm.

        The government does not even react anymore to Shall no infringe. People take Oaths on Imaginary things these days. All I can say it is gonna be hard.

      • cu.h.j says:


        I think it is better to try and put effort in to find alternatives and fight, rather than give up and wallow in fear and anger. A quote by Theodore Roosevelt comes to mind:

        “It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”

        • cu.h.j says:

          I also agree with you Joseph, most of the battle in the US is for the mind. It is much easier to convince people that they will fail and to give up so that they don’t resist. This is straight out of the art of war.

    The Great Reboot
    U.S. families plan big holiday celebrations with COVID-19 shots in arms
    By Barbara Goldberg

    Even so, the return to pre-pandemic traditions is proving complicated for some whose loved ones are choosing not to get vaccinated or do not consider COVID-19 to be a serious health threat.

    Connie Perkins, her husband and their three children are skipping their usual Thanksgiving meal with relatives and taking a week-long road trip to campgrounds far from their home in Galveston County, Texas, to avoid any confrontation over vaccination status.

    Everyone on her husband’s side of the family is vaccinated against COVID-19, Perkins said, but none of her five-member family is because they do not believe the shots are safe.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the vaccines are safe and continue to get intensive monitoring.

    “We’re not going to present the opportunity for that to even come up and make anyone uncomfortable,” Perkins said.

    I am currently working with a global community of like-minded people to fine-tune a cryptocurrency which has been created with the purpose of serving as a stable means of exchange (as opposed to a speculative token which people would rather hodl) maintaining it’s purchasing power over time.
    The first 4 and a half years have passed and it is slowly maturing.
    Right now there is a development phase of allowing local tokens to be used for specific Bioregions and it feels like a very good approach.
    The name of the project is SEEDS (all capital letters) and the cryptocurrency it uses (which is the global coin, the local tokens are not yet available) is called “Seeds”

    Jefferey Jaxen
    …and James Corbett’s Documentary
    Century of Enslavement: The History of The Federal Reserve

    During the course of putting together some online dissemination pieces, I re-watched
    “Century of Enslavement: The History of The Federal Reserve”.
    (For those who haven’t read this article, Corbett links it and his many other works surrounding the topic of money.)

    At 1:23:22, the screen credits for the transcripts come up. Broc West is mentioned. Jeffrey Jaxen is also mentioned.
    I’m wondering if this is a mis-spelling of Jefferey Jaxen.
    Many of us recognize Jefferey Jaxen from The Highwire.
