E My Take On Recessionary Indicators
Despite the regularity of economic downturns and the existence of business cycles in a free market economy it is quite obvious that recession calling remains an art more than a science with the scientists being wrong consistently.

LOL just wait until a weak Euro country threatens bankruptcy and the QE starts again. Once it starts it's almost impossible to stop using it.

North Korean Drama Over- CPI Meets Estimates

Will is the issue. Former agreements with North Korea were supposed to allow inspections and prevention of them getting nuclear material in the first place. What always happens is they get the easement first and then don't abide by the agreement. That's why the stance has been that they do their part first.

Regarding the Korean war. Yes, it was a long time ago. However, that is still the mindset in North Korea. Their twisted history makes them think that it worked.

I would hope that he would care about his starving population. The way to do that is to disarm. That has not stopped him and is not likely to. Sadly, N. Korea can walk away with eased tensions, a PR boost, relaxation of trade barriers with less pressure on China which will make it easier not harder for them to build more missiles. What the US gets is promises that are likely to be empty and/or deceptive and the discontinuation of a test site that is already broken and being decommissioned.

Last, Iran and North Korea are linked. They have and will continue to work together on nuclear weapons and missiles. One needs to shut down N. Korea now not later. We should have done more long ago.

Last, sadly there is quite enough out on what has gone on at the talks and sadly, it's th Republicans that are upset for a good reason. Stopping the training is especially in poor taste. It was a not so subtle tool to prevent N. Korea from thinking it has the upper hand which is dangerous. The training is also important to helping save lives if a war does break out there. Without it we are weaker and South and North Korea know it. No foreign power should be able to influence our military behavior let alone a tin pot dictator that is trying to threaten the US with nuclear missiles.

If anything people are paying more for less. The strong economy has yet to hit the retail market and it shows.

Less static and more yawning. That is not bad though. It is good for the market to take breathers. Slow and steady wins the game more often than pointy rises and steep drops.

As we should all know, erecting trade barriers among close trading partners has an adverse effect on the economy. Sadly, many of these effects occur long term. This means the one implementing them may only have to deal with the #inflation caused by their actions and not the disfigurement of their economy and the gradual shift of trade away from the country implementing one sided trade barriers which are usually illogical because they usually do more harm than good and cause massive unforeseen results because they let he opposing side do one sided actions as well.

There should be a basic economic test the Republican party requires before a candidate is elected because #Trump's position on this is more liberal than even Clinton's which is depressingly sad coming from a person who's suppose to be a businessman.

This is more due to stock pushing than anything fundamental. I wouldn't trade on it.

Sad. Too much was given up with nothing really from N. Korea. They shuttered their old test site because it caved in and aren't doing more tests probably because they need more equipment to make more missiles which a resumption of trade will make easier to sneak more material to them to make them.

The last time the US let up on North Korea got Americans killed in the Korean war. With nukes, this is an even bigger issue. I'm afraid we will regret the years of dilly dallying with N. Korea. They will export their weapons to Iran and others. The world is more dangerous not safer.

Is The World’s Largest Hedge Fund Wrong About Stock Assets?

Rather than a pullback or collapse money should move from highly leveraged balance sheets to low levered balance sheets. This implies rotation more than a collapse. A collapse will not be caused by debt alone, but rater a drop in growth or in earnings. This will make it hard or impossible for some companies to cover their debt load and justify it to investors.

Not really, but if a trade war ensues and inflation appears then you will get a real pullback.
