Mass Money Debauchery

Debauchery

The present day offers the opportunity for many incredible experiences.  Perhaps one of the most rewarding of all is bearing witness to the final days before the greatest economic crackup the world’s ever known.  Not since Nero clipped coins in 64 A.D. and fiddled as Rome burned has there been such an intolerable collection of dingleberries in imperial office.

John Maynard Keynes, the godfather of modern day economic planning, in his 1919 work, The Economic Consequences of the Peace, wrote: “There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency.”

Incidentally, Keynes attributed this acute insight to another innovative central planner, one Vladimir Lenin.  Regrettably, these two visionaries predicted today’s present state of affairs with remarkable (Read More....)

What Have You Done for Me Lately?

Swing voters are a fickle bunch.  One election they vote Democrat.  The next they vote Republican.

For they have no particular ideology or political philosophy to base their judgement upon.  They don’t give a rip about questions of small government or big government.  Nor do they have any druthers about the welfare or warfare state.

In effect, they really don’t care.  What’s important to the swing voter is much simpler.  In fact, it can be boiled down to the following essential question.  What have you done for me lately?

The answer to this question, of course, comes back to money.  As far as the swing voter’s concerned, if their brokerage account’s growing they vote the incumbent (Read More....)

How to Decipher the News

“Markets make opinions,” says the old Wall Street adage.  Perhaps what this means is that when stocks are going up, many consider the economy to be going great.  Conversely, when stocks tank it must be because the economic sky is falling.

For both scenarios the opinions range far and wide.  A rising NASDAQ may compel a tech aficionado to proclaim we’re on the cusp of a new digital revolution.  Falling manufacturing stocks may compel a protectionist to proclaim it (Read More....)

The Number One Factor Influencing Fed Monetary Policy

Things Ain’t Right

A brief scan of the financial and economic landscape – both in the U.S. and abroad – offers ample confirmation that we are in the midst of a great reset.  From a feint tickle at the turn of the new millennium to a persistent itch a decade ago, the preponderance of evidence in this regard is now much too painful to ignore.  There’s no denying that things ain’t right.

Debt is increasing while GDP’s stagnating.  Stocks are rising while earnings are declining.  Incomes are flat-lining for the majority of workers while growing by leaps and bounds for the 1 percent.  Plus there’s over $13 trillion of negative-yielding debt.

With all this going on, what’s become lucidly clear is the frank understanding that there’s nothing that can really be done to reverse it.  No executive order.  No monetary (Read More....)

The Great Stock Market Swindle

Short Circuited Feedback Loops

Finding and filling gaps in the market is one avenue for entrepreneurial success.  Obviously, the first to tap into an unmet consumer demand can unlock massive profits.  But unless there’s some comparative advantage, competition will quickly commoditize the market and profit margins will decline to just above breakeven.

Unfortunately, finding and filling gaps in the market is much easier said than done.  Even the most successful serial entrepreneurs fail more than they succeed.  What’s more, success in one endeavor doesn’t guarantee success in another.

Anyone who has ever developed and marketed a new product from concept through sale knows how difficult it is to achieve profitability.  For every good idea there must be a hundred bad ones.  Yet the only way to really know the (Read More....)
