Muckraker of the Financial System

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

E Attacking The Everything Bubble Without Killing The Economy
Now the Fed is in the process of popping the bubbles all at once. Dire consequences for workers will follow. It could be deflationary in the way that Mish Shedlock rightly abhors. We are facing long term secular deflation, and new ideas are needed.

Hawks have taken over the Fed and the doves exist just for show. Yes there are bubbles, but in assets, not in economic production. The Fed will most likely crush the second to slow the first, and hide behind the neutral rate to do so.

China can afford to lose more people in a nuclear war than the USA can. Just sayin'.

Will Canadian Boycott Start With Kentucky Whiskey?

Just FYI, the governor of Kentucky is still crowing about Canada's tariff on bourbon. Time for the Canadians to keep the pressure on a state that has two racist senators and that does not reflect the values of Canadians or most Americans.

The U.S. Treasury Sell-Off Needs To Be Confirmed By Inflationary Pressures
4 days ago

While the Fed may be jumping the gun, it is Trump's fault. Massive spending preceded by tax cuts and inflationary tariffs have boosted Powell's plans. But the argument could be made that the tax cuts will pass, having gone to the wrong people, the wealthy. The argument could be made that tariffs are ultimately recessionary, not inflationary. The argument could be made that regular people do not buy many houses anyway in the USA. That all seems deflationary to me.

No argument as to Whirlpool's quality compared to imports. But can anything be spared from tariffs? Even non tariffs steel has gone up in price. Unless this inefficiency is corrected, margins could be massively squeezed.

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.
