    Is Reuters ever going to get the blogs up again? Seriously, how incompetent can they be?

    It’s truly bizarre how long they’ve been down.

    Hi Felix,

    I am one of the latest victims of AFA Press. I joined the company without really knowing the scam that they do around the world, after 3 weeks I left the company.

    I was wondering if you can tell me how to stop this kind of organisation, at least their directors? They are continuing their scams here in Mexico and wish I could do something to stop them.

    Dear Felix,

    Your blog on “Occupy Art” was brilliant. I’m a professional artist and have long believed
    that the control of the art industry by a tiny few for their own financial gain amounts to not only to a manipulation of artistic production in multiple ways, it is the private control of creativity.

    The burden rests upon artists themselves who either resist this plutocracy in art, and swing wide the doors of creativity, or we can ignore power and enter into relationships which distort both creativity and the people we become.

    Thanks for the piece.

    I’ve been 86ed from Reuters so I will leave this comment here regarding Salmon’s recent column “The JP Morgan apologists of CNBC,” especially with respect to Maria Bartiromo. Anyone wishing to read two sarcastic takes on Bartiromo should read the two below blog posts. However, anyone who is PC or missing a sense of humor should not read them.

    As a journalist struggling to secure a full time job, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your article… I found a position online for ‘International Journalist’ with AFA Press via LinkedIn and as a lover of the written word and indeed, travelling, I applied with a spark of hope in my heart…

    However, my journalistic radar was on red alert when, despite having more than 5 years of experience in print media and being a published author, I received an email from the company telling me that my resume suited the role of ‘International Sales Consultant’.

    How baffled I was, considering I have no sales experience whatsoever, so I took to researching the company. You have just saved me from what appears to be any journalist’s nightmare and a dreary old time of being the female ‘soft sales approach’ sidekick to an untrained counterpart.

    I can’t thank you enough…keep up the good work!

    Felix Salmon,
    I’m a cooper union student. We just received a draft of the new Code of Cunduct for students. The new document greatly reduces freedoms of students and gives the administration the possibility to suspend students without any judicial review.
    It is an outrageous unconstitutional document that the board of Trustees is imposing on the student body.

    Among other things students can be prosecuted for :”communicating repeatedly in a manner to seriously annoy a reasonable person” or “Behaviour that disturbs the peace, academic study, or sleep off campus”

    I thought you might be interested

    Hi, Now that you are unaffiliated (?) you can write the truth! I for one am always amazed how much blatant a$$-kissing goes in the financial press. They are so uncritical and awe struck when interviewing supposed investment geniuses like Ray Dalio and Bill Gross. The more I read about those two guys, the more they sound like TM cult leaders running a ponzi racket. We need a few independent Harry Markopolos type investigators on this beat!

    we’ve looked at routers in this variety that reveal similar aspects including IEEE 802.11n wifi standards,
    2.4-ghz band and double antennas. If you are looking
    for a new router, nothing less than an n layer 3 switch is
    highly recommended. For those who have a wireless-g router, it might be advisable to enhance to some wireless n layer 3 switch.
    The hottest routers also raise speed with Wi-Fi Quality of Service applications (QoS) common, which makes effective utilization of Ethernet connections by prioritizing multimedia traffic based on the
    application’s sensitivity to delay. Many wireless n routers additionally
    use multiple-input and numerous-output (MIMO) radio antennae
    to increase speeds.

  19. Disappointed says:


    I’m a fan — which is all the more reason why I was puzzled to hear what you said on Marketplace earlier this month. With regards to the anemic economic recovery, you gave the Fed credit and yet blamed Obama because he was “in charge of fiscal policy.” That’s not entirely true, and I think you know that. The president may have ideas re fiscal policy but he’s not a dictator and it requires Congress to work with him to get fiscal policy passed and enacted. Republicans have stone-walled anything Obama has wanted to do when it came to fiscal policy and even when he was able to get a stimulus package passed, it was WOEFULLY too small considering the damage wrought by the 2008 recession/depression, and too skewed to tax cuts versus spending. And then you mentioned the sequester — who was responsible for that, Obama? Really? That was all GOP, forced on Obama, who was against it.

    Your comments were inaccurate and misleading. Normally you do much better.

    Note that during prior recessions for Reagan, Clinton and GW Bush, federal spending was at a MUCH higher level in the form of stimulus than Obama was afforded by this obstructionist GOP. I can send you the charts / facts. Reagan in particular had the benefit of enormous federal spending to lift the economy out of recession — it wasn’t just tax cuts, not by a longshot! Given the magnitude of the 2008 recession, Obama’s stimulus needed to be 2x to 3x larger to be equivalent to past spending stimulus during recessions.

    And Ben Bernanke admitted all of this in his periodic Fed comments, regularly inferring that the Fed was doing more than it should to compensate for the lack of fiscal policy from Congress. So you’re correct in giving the Fed credit as it was forced to be the adult in the room given the snotty GOP children.

    We’re getting nohwere with respect to deep reform of the tax code, but it’s back on the table, as it is during every presidential election campaign. If we’re serious about it, then we should start taking an ax not only to the mortgage-interest deduction but also to the charitable-donation deduction. Because every time I see reports of a family charitable trust which carefully makes only the minimum outlays each year, I wonder just how charitable a lot of these donations are.Source: victorfleischer.com

    I have read everything you have written on the subject, and after a lot of research I still have large dark areas. I was wondering if I could ask you some questions regarding the matter.

    I would very much appreciate the opportunity.

    Why is public secondary school are more better than private secondary school

  40. Your article about ETHICALLY IFFY ‘PHILANTHROPY’ that I found on wired has been the most comforting story I’ve read all year. My life is shifting and I feel like I’m at a crossroads where I have to let go of everything I thought I would never have to give up, in exchange for opportunities that I never thought I could ever face. But I’m not being asked to let go of things… these people are letting go of me unless I deny the opportunity. I don’t think I’ve read anything that goes so deep into describing other humans that I do not consider myself anywhere close to but have always “noticed” more than other humans… it’s nice to realize that the world isn’t as small as I was thinking. I feel like it was written for me and that it found me at just the right time. Thank you for writing this.

  41. Andrey says:

    Dear Felix Salmon
    I want to introduce you to the artist Akrolesta (http://akrolesta.art/).
    When Akrolesta appeared, it was Sunday.
    Once in New York Mark Rothko was in a hurry to finish the painting for Akrolesta’s birthday. Just then an abstract impressionism or painting of a color field was created.
    Jeff Koons was very upset by the fact that his figures from the balloons, which he made for Akrolesta, blown or burst all the time. And then he decided to make them from stainless steel and became famous.
    Once in Milan Lucio Fontana wanted to impress Akrolesta and create a masterpiece in 5 seconds. So there was The Spatial Concept: Expectations. Now it costs 1.5 million dollars.
    An apple that has not been eaten by Akrolesta on her visit to Rene Magritte in Brussels can be seen in painting The Son of Man (Le fils de l’homme).
    When Akrolesta was fond of step aerobics, Sol LeWitt presented her his Negative Pyramid.
    Once in Springs to East Hampton Akrolesta and Jackson Pollock ran around the canvas and splashed each other. So appeared the abstract expressionism and style of drip painting.
    Once in Paris Pablo Picasso got angry at Akrolesta for praising Salvador Dali and painted her portrait. This was the origin of cubism.
    Claude Monet was so worried and in a hurry before meeting Akrolesta. It reflected on his smear and details in his paintings. So there was Impressionism.
    When Joseph Beuys decided to make an offer to Akrolesta, he rehearsed it for three hours with a hare carcass.
    The clock in the paintings of Giorgio de Chirico indicate the time of his dates with Akrolesta.
    Once in Weimar (Germany), Akrolesta was bored on Wassily Kandinsky’s lecture. She draw dashes, circles and wavy lines on a piece of paper. The sheet remained in the audience of the Bauhaus, where he was found by Kandinsky. So there was abstract art.
    Malevich decided to paint a portrait of Akrolesta, but it turned into The Black Square.
    In honor of Akrolesta, Kazimir Malevich called his painting style Suprematism. (Supremus in Latin is the highest)
    Once in New York, visiting Donald Judd, Akrolesta attached around the mirror 10 identical black boxes for her ornaments. Thus, Minimalism appeared.
    “Not all will be taken to the future,” said Ilya Kabakov to Akrolesta … and he remained in the past.
    Akrolesta did not have a dog … and she called Oleg Kulik.
    One day, Marcel Duchamp started repairs. He bought a urinal and brought it home. “What an interesting sculpture!” exclaimed Akrolesta. And so was Readymades.
    When Akrolesta with Marcel Duchamp divided the property … Marcel got only one bicycle wheel …
    In fact, Andy Warhol wanted to create a portrait of Akrolesta, but it turned into The Marilyn Diptych.
    Akrolesta cooked very tasty, but Andy Warhol continued to miss Campbell’s Soup.
    Once, in London, in Taboo’s club, Akrolesta persuaded Leigh Bowery and Sue Tilley to pose Lucian Freud.
    Edward Hopper recalled his conversation with Akrolesta in New York many times. And even painted it in The Nighthawks.
    Once Akrolesta drove Damien Hirst to the Zoological Museum
    At first, Akrolesta thought to work in Cubism, then in Impressionism, and then decided to make original paintings, which haven’t ever been …
    “I am as ephemeral and real as your feelings” said Akrolesta

    Akrolesta’s works in museum collections:
    T-ART Museum, Lithuania EU
    MoMA, Neverland
    Kunsthalle, Ross 128 b
    The Lemuel Gulliver Museum, Brobdingnag
    MoMA, Nutopia
    Pinakothek, Proxima Centauri b
    The Prado Museum, The Mars
    The Louvre, The Pluto
    MoMA, Atlantis
    Centre Georges Pompidou, The Moon
    The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Mars
    MoMA, El Dorado
    The Jonathan Swift Museum, Lilliput
    The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, The Venus
    Underground MoMA, Zion

    Akrolesta’s works in personal collections:
    Clark Kent
    Peter Benjamin Parker
    John Galt
    John H. Watson

    Lara Croft
    Albus Dumbledore
    Sir Lancelot du Lac
    Baron Karl Friedrich Hieronymus Freiherr von Munchhausen

    And really publications:

    Visualization of the invisible
    “Tatiana Sokolova mixes pithiness of posters, irony of caricature and philosophy of academic painting. She visualizes a new language of the 21th century, a language of symbols.”
    (“Cosmo lady” magazine)

    The ironic pictures of Tatyana Sokolova
    “Tatyana Sokolova’s irony is very soft and international. Philosophical and a little provocative. Most of the time it is self-irony.
    Tatiana invites us to look at ourselves slightly mocking, but without malice.
    A real artist allowed to provocate and splash everyone a little bit with his paints.”

    SmartArt: Brain Fashion
    “In the modern world, the fashion for “smart pictures” is gaining strength. From the artists of the 21st century it is represented, for example, by artist Tatyana Sokolova.
    Smart pictures not only analyze modern trends and emphasize current issues, but also allow you to train your mind.
    These pictures are not for admiration, not for beauty. They are for understanding. They contain a thought, a message. Their task is to focus the viewer’s attention on some problem, aspect of life. And invite to think about it.
    SmartArt-artists sometimes balance on the verge of caricature and grotesque, but their pictures are much deeper and more multidimensional. SmartArt-pictures reveal the essence of a person and his relationship with the world around him.”

    Sincerely, Andrey

    Hey Felix,
    I just wanted to say, your tweet on the “Silicon Valley Thread” is RIGHT ON THE MONEY. I know from personal experience (former employee and colleague of aforementioned tweeter) that what you’re saying is absolutely true. That is the dream they like to sell for profit, in reality it’s just a business. I’m so glad you called this tweet out because they have silenced a lot of people, and portray this image to the world that is SO SO false.

    Hello Mr Felix,

    1) Is there any correlation between David X Li’s work on risk correlation and adoption of that formula by Jeffrey Epstein with regard to his Liquid Funding Ltd trading concern, which operated on behalf of Bear Stearns (Ireland) out of the Virgin Islands? (until the financial crash of 2008-2009)

    2) I’ve looked at some of the LFL paperwork about CDO’s CBO’s HELX’s and believe that Epstein may be linked to the onset of the 2008-2009 financial crash. Have you looked at the Paradise Papers information on Liquid Funding Ltd to research that? Seems like an interesting basis for research! Unfortunately I do not have full access to the paradise papers to do the research myself.
