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.

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.

E Fed Governor Cements Looming Economic Destruction
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.

E Fed Signals Will Break The Economy. Wait Til Trump Finds Out
The Fed won't change, just like a leopard won't change its spots, and will likely establish the same policies that it has in the past to break the economy. China will court American business, maybe limit tit for tat, but Trump will not be happy.

E Fed In A Box
Market monetarists like Scott Sumner and Kevin Erdmann say raising of rates instead of raising inflation will result in the dropping of the R* rate. The Fed does monetary stimulus by cutting rates below that equilibrium rate, not by raising rates.

Helicopter money, as Kyle Bass has said, is the only answer. The alternative is far more costly.

Trump does not really care about the average consumer. He lied about the wealthy paying more in taxes because they could afford it. He is hurting rural America as I predicted. They are stupid enough to go along with him.

If capitalism is a private profit system requiring accumulation of capital, it is the attempt to squeeze profits through cheating and or Monopoly that raises the cost of living.

Hard to tell if this ominous call is a premature call. There is still massive demand for long bonds, considering the supply is increasing.

Why 80% Of Americans Face A Retirement Crisis

Cost of living is dramatically higher, while wages are not. That of course, is what capitalism wants. It is maybe the reason young people hate capitalism. This needs to be fixed or capitalism, still the best system, could be destabilized. I think the odds of that happening are low, but one would think the capitalists would try to be more careful. Yet under Trump they have been exceedingly reckless in getting tax cuts for themselves, buying back stock, and arrogantly supporting tariffs that will ultimately come back to bite them.

A Hypothesis For Prof. Krugman: The Transmission Method Was Fear

I am sure that was part of it. But not all of it. Clearly, paying interest on excess reserves meant that banks did not feel the need to extend lending past pristine credit. And, it was always against the law to loan to people who cannot pay it back, but there were penalties against lenders who did so. That is peeling away, as Trump wants a bigger everything bubble.

The Neatest Idea Ever For Reducing The Fed’s Balance Sheet
1 day ago

Other nations report reserves and yet the Fed does not control the money supply by upping reserve requirements. So in our system, what are excess reserves anyway. They are the opposite of required reserves, right? And also, aren't they a base money? Different from deposited. And they are offset by bonds whereas Brains would not be. Just trying to understand the current Fed issues. One more question. Banks issue deposits through lending. So said the BOE. So reserves are not needed, right. What is the mechanism by which they hamper lending if banks create broad money by lending?

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
