The first in 2013 – namely the Nikkei, because oddly enough everyone ignores that hyperinflation “success story” that is the Caracas stock market, was last in January. And vice versa: the best performing asset last month was the barbarous relic which every Keynesian “expert” once again [...]

As we reported several days ago, for the first time in history the majority of members of Congress currently have a net worth over $1,000,000. Of course, this also means that just under half are still aspiring to get in Wall Street’s “preferred politician” rolodex, and [...]

If one listens to Goldman’s chief economist Jan Hatzius these days, it is all roses for the global economy in 2014… much like it was for Goldman at the end of 2010, a case of optimism which went stupendously wrong. Goldman’s Dominic Wilson [...]
