Muckraker of the Financial System

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.

Retail Apocalypse: Everything You Need To Know

One of every ten dollars spent is online. And it could flatten at any time. It already has in India and other nations near India. It could do the same here.

Why Is The Fed So Fixated On The Inflation Rate?
2 days ago

I think slow growth has more to do with lack of inflation. I mean, if there is slack in the production facility, most companies would prefer to produce more than raise prices. They have to find a market for those products, though. If they cannot, then the product will cost more per unit. Slow growth could cause products to cost more per unit but those costs cannot be passed on. However, fast growth causes unit costs to go down, but greed sets in and strong sales bring the temptation to push for higher pricing.

This may not always happen, but it can and does happen.

Retail Stores Are Dying And We Should Let Them

I don't believe Amazon pays the ecommerce average. I question that chart. Also, it has been documented by the NY Times and others that ecommerce jobs at Amazon are dreadful. Ecommerce is overrated. It will not save the economy.

Defining Labor Economics

While I agree with the theme of this article, I grew up in a farming region. I know Americans won't pick enough product to qualify for piece work bonuses. It is hard work. It requires a lot of experience and conditioning. So, it isn't worth it to them to go out and pick at all.

Canada’s Soft Lumber And Dairy Are Easy Targets For Trump’s 'America First' Strategy

Trampling on Canada is not a win. Canada should look towards the East seeing how the USA is closed for business under Trump. I see a potential housing recession brought on sooner here by Trump's hair brained ideas.

The Most Precious Thing Is Patient Cash

Hoover was, like FDR, a hero to Main Street. But the Fed is a liquidator, and I do not believe it was by accident, both in 1932 and in 2007-2009.

I have to add that Greenspan is the most perplexing economist. He says we are in too much debt, but he wants more treasury bonds and higher yields. Make up your mind, Greenspan.

Bubblemucci works for Trump. Tony Robbins is a confidence guru. Isn't he out of his expertise? Nice article.

Does The Fed Have To Shrink Its Balance Sheet?

Exactly, Norman! Trouble is, the Fed doesn't do anything unsterilized. I don't why that is, other than it fears inflation in an irrational way.

You Got Trumped! Winning Horse In Presidential Race Was Trojan

I am fairly sure that Trump will fall back onto traditional ways of stimulating the economy, like maybe an eventual housing bubble. That would hurt main street but would help his cronies.

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
