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 Scott Sumner Destroys Financial Times Fear Of China
The Financial Times has come out with an article fearful of China. Scott Sumner decimated it. For the FT, fear of losing a cultural war with China must be widely understood. But it isn't.
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.
E The Lowdown Federal Reserve Bank
The Fed made the Great Recession far worse on purpose but says it was all about providing accommodation!.

Nationalizing everything rarely works. Maybe the Fed itself. But it would not make much difference if politicians took advantage. But nationalizing media? That is crazy.

I am not really critical of Mish. He gets the difficulty of asset inflation on main Street, Bill. It is just that popping everything has unacceptable risks worldwide. I do not know his views about Palley. Thanks for the comment.

China May Cancel Trade Talks If Trump Extends Tariffs

It is more than just elections being the difference. Growth is stronger in China. China is not subject to Basel constraints. China can stop Apple completely if it wanted to. And with so many people, massive supply chains can leave the US on the outside looking in.

2010 - Present (8 years 10 months)

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.
