Trump’s Plan to Close the Trade Deficit with China

Rags to Riches

Jack Ma is an amiable fellow.  Back in 1994, while visiting the United States he decided to give that newfangled internet thing a whirl.  At a moment of peak inspiration, he executed his first search engine request by typing in the word (Read More....)

Global Recession Signs You Need To Watch For and Other Visions for 2017

Global Recession and Other Visions for 2017

Conjuring Up Visions

Today’s a day for considering new hopes, new dreams, and new hallucinations.  The New Year is here, after all.  Now is the time to turn over a new leaf and start afresh.

Naturally, 2017 will be the year you get exactly what’s coming to you.  Both good and bad.  But what else will happen?

Here we begin by closing our eyes and slowing our breath.  We let our mind role back into the grey matter of our brain.  We wait patiently for new neurological connections to open up.  Then, ever so subtly, visions of the year ahead come into focus.

Will stocks go up or down?  What about gold and Treasury bonds?  Will the economy expand or contract?  Are we fated for World War III?  Who will win the Super Bowl?

These are the questions (Read More....)

Is DOW 20,000 and U.S. National Debt $20 trillion merely a coincidence? Or is there a correlation?

Arrested Development

Despite the best efforts of the bulls to make history happen, they’ve been unable to ‘git-r-done.’  At the time of this writing, the DOW is facing another bout of arrested development; it has yet to notch 20,000 for the very first time.

What a feat it will be when this remarkable, but trivial, event comes to pass.  After a near eight year run, the DOW will likely eclipse this exquisitely round numeric threshold in the very near future.  Shouldn’t such an achievement – and the associated wealth effect – have made us all (Read More....)

Critical Thinking Will Become A Thing Of The Past

Too Smart to Think

These days everything must be smart.  There are smart cities, smart grids, smart policies, smart TVs, smart cars, smartphones, smart watches, smart shoes, and smart glasses.  There’s even something called smart underwear.

Before long everything around us will be so smart we’ll no longer have to do one critically important thing.  We’ll no longer have to think; smart algorithms will think for us.  What’s more, the possibilities for not thinking are seemingly limitless.

Bad Monday

Some Monday mornings are better than others.  Others are worse than some.  For one Amazon employee, this past Monday morning was particularly bad.

No doubt, the poor fellow would have been better off he’d called in sick to work.  Such a simple decision would have saved him from extreme agony.  But, unfortunately, he showed up to Amazon’s Seattle headquarters and put on a public and painful display of madness.

From what we gather, upon arrival, he blasted out an email to hundreds of coworkers, including Chief Executive Officer Jeff Bezos, outlining several reservations he had with the terms of his ‘Performance Improvement Plan.’  After that, he executed a flawless swan dive off Amazon’s 12-story Apollo building, presumably to his death.

Yet, somehow, he didn’t (Read More....)

Will the national struggle end with the election of Donald Trump?

by MN Gordon

Economic Prism

Ordinary ideals of Americana range as far and wide as the North American continent.  The valued conviction of one American vastly differs from that of another.  Joe from Santa Fe may have little connection with Joe in South Bend or Joe in South Boston.

One may celebrate adventures in mysticisms.  Another may find inspiration sitting in a college football grandstand.  While a third struggles to free himself of the orthodox hobgoblins that suffocate his soul.

Until Donald Trump came along, the story of the national struggle, as outlined by the discredited mainstream media, had been told with delicate regularity.  The news was professed from the locus of the two party political system…any diverging views were carefully sifted out.  What was reported was only what the story editors allowed to pass through their single micron particulate (Read More....)

Putting an End to the Regulatory Industry

Gross Regulatory Overburden

Corporate life in America these days is fraught with tedium.  First the MBAs imposed their silly six sigma processes and reduced workers to mere widgets.  Then the regulators went through and squashed out any fun that remained.

Gone are the days when shrewd eccentrics could get rich using technobabble to hawk the Turbo Encabulator.  Alas, there are rules and regulations stymieing all creativity.  In fact, as a matter of law, such restrictions are shoved in the worker’s face each morning as they fill up their morning cup of coffee.
