Stephen LendmanAccording to Alexa.com as of August 6, 2012, Stephen Lendman’s blog, sjlendman.blogspot.com, has a 3-month ranking of 359,628.

His site has gone up from the 919,097th position in just three months.

It goes to show that it’s more than just about putting out quality material on a regular basis, as there is no one else I have come across who puts out more quality blogging content than Lendman, and his site was ranked lower than mine.

On the other hand, there are some sites that put out fluff and get far higher ratings, or, like the pro-Austrian economics Daily Bell, which has a team of nearly half a dozen “elves,” yet has a ranking similar to what thecomingdepression.blogspot.com did, which got that ranking just by featuring two to three new articles a day that were sourced from other sites.

Here is the comment, reproduced in full, before it is automatically removed in a couple weeks, in response to Infowars.com republishing The Daily Bell article, Central Banks Won’t Produce Natural Interest. Notice how they predictably fail to distinguish between public non-BIS-member central banks (Libya’s until the NATO bombing, Syria’s, Iran’s — notice a pattern?) and private central banks.

“The gibberish contained in the above excerpt is only magnified throughout the article.”
The article itself is, in fact, gibberish.
It is written by a person whose job is to write articles for a banking website about bankers and the jargon and gibberish that the bankers use while using the same gibberish to blast the banks, bankers, and banking practices that caused the website (and the author’s job) to exist in the first place, all the while still promoting the perpetuation of the machine that created itself.
Does that mean there is “greenbackerists”?
Extreme greenbackerists?
And the history lesson is completely un-necessary.
“…Knut Wicksell’s ‘natural rate of interest’”. But who was Knut Wicksell and what is the “natural rate of interest” – and does it matter?”
Creating a catchy phrase automatically means that the creator is a financial genius?
Critically analyzing the jargon while using the jargon shows genius, too?
Maybe the interest rates (“natural” or not) would be “better” (perspectively) if so much time and money wasn’t WASTED to have articles like this (and websites like TheDailyBell)…
What a RANT!
My fingers are out of breath…”

I first publicly questioned The Daily Bell on February 10, 2011, with Strange Bedfellows: The Federal Reserve and The Daily Bell.
