I have published on two other prominent financial websites, Seekingalpha.com (as Gary A) and at Businessinsider.com. I muckrake the banking system and found premeditated causes for the housing bubble and subsequent meltdown. I am married with 4 grown children.

E Fake Inflation Expectations Meet Good And Bad Inflation
Learning about inflation expectations as an indicator can help investors decide a way forward. Good inflation and bad inflation should also be recognized and evaluated based on the 1970's and on desires for a quick fix to things by our new POTUS.

Economic Stimulus Does Not Stimulate Economic Growth
7 minutes ago

Only Milton Friedman can fix this with his understand Helicopter Money. But of course, modern monetarists don't trust him like they should. He is gone, but he could have established a real stimulus.

Are Expectations Too High For Trump?
11 hours ago

Expectations for Trump are mostly fueled by Trump himself. And yes, they are most likely way too high. Reagan and Obama came in as the economy bottomed. Reagan did better as Obama got sidetracked by Obamacare and then the Republicans took the house and wouldn't let him do anything. Moral to that story is do something when you have the votes. Trump has the votes but maybe not the economy with which to achieve much more.

Trump Markets And The Future
18 hours ago

Reagan was a spender. Trump may shrink GDP with a trade war. And companies are awash with cash. Tax cuts will not spur a whole lot of investment if companies are only interested in holding cash because they fear the financial system. Trump may spur a few new factories but port business will slow as a result. The factories will pay poorly and high paying port jobs may diminish.

The Big "Ifs" Of The Next Four Years
1 day ago

Lenders are drooling to lend to people who cannot pay it back, Bernard. What will be interesting is to actually see if lenders are equipped with guaranteed loans that are toxic. Maybe #Trump wants to cut other things out of the budget in order to prepare for the next housing bubble, a guaranteed one by the Federal Government.

EconoFact: Bringing Facts And Data To Policy Debates
1 day ago

I thought this one was interesting: Whether the border tax adjustments in the blueprint are deemed legal from a World Trade Organization perspective will depend on a key interpretation: Is the tax in question an income tax or a tax on a product? It does not seem possible to characterize the new tax as a tax on a product. It is calculated by reference to firm-based attributes under a new and simplified definition of net income, but a definition of net income nonetheless.

The fact that imports would face 20% tax on their price with no deductions while domestic producers would be able to deduct most expenses — including payroll — from the tax base could also make the import border adjustment illegal under the international rules. econofact.org/house-gop-tax-plan-aims-to-boost-competitiveness-might-also-violate-trade-law

Does Anyone Still Trust The GDP Deflator?
1 day ago

If 7 in 10 Americans have little savings, the money is obviously not floating around in the real economy. A lot of it is in big corporations, and in big banks. It becomes a rainy day fund for big business. Without adequate demand on main street, it is likely to stay where it is now.

Trump Is At The Helm But Does Not Control The Course Of The Economy
2 days ago

The rebates under Bush were way too small, almost an embarrassment considering how much was spent bailing out the banks and making sure bonuses were paid with taxpayer money. It was an insult, really.

Dr. Lambert's Effective Demand Recession Indicator
2 days ago

Your take on the title, Wendell, is very astute and very funny. In the second to last paragraph I meant to say notational demand rather than potential demand as notational demand would reflect what people could buy (and borrow) if they were more able to do so. There is a lot of demand just not being met due to the reality of effective demand limit.

Will President Trump Prick The ‘Big, Fat, Ugly Bubble’?
3 days ago

Trump has the ability to turn a recession into a deep dark depression. That is the concern, especially with libertarians telling him depressions are no big deal.

On my blog I discuss the past housing bubble, the crash and future housing bubbles and scams. Offering easy money loans should be against the law but is not. Selling bogus AAA rated bonds should have been prosecuted but the scheme came from the bankers at Basel 2. You can't go higher than that. http://www.examplesofglobalization.com
