Substituting Debt for Income Is Not Success–It’s Failure on an Epic Scale

charleshughsmith.blogspot.com / CHARLES HUGH SMITH / WEDNESDAY, JULY 30, 2014

The Fed’s substitution of debt for income has only doomed the nation to a deeper, more painful realignment of real income and expenses. The economic “recovery” has been based on a simple premise: debt can be substituted for income with no ill effects. As real [...]

M.A.D. Sanctions; Two Games at Once

globaleconomicanalysis.blogspot.com / Mike “Mish” Shedlock / Wednesday, July 30, 2014 3:30 AM

M.A.D. Sanctions

Sanctions are a lose-lose-lose game. Consumers lose, businesses loses, countries lose. And the hypocrisy alone is appalling.

The EU wants sanctions to hurt Russia “more” than the EU. Thus the EU let a French military sale to Russia [...]

On Dominoes, WMDs And Putin’s “Aggression”: Imperial Washington Is Intoxicated By Another Big Lie

davidstockmanscontracorner.com / by David Stockman / July 29, 2014

Imperial Washington is truly running amuck in its insensible confrontation with Vladimir Putin. The pending round of new sanctions is a counter-productive joke. Apparently, more of Vlad’s posse will be put on double probation, thereby reducing demand for Harry Macklowe’s swell new $60 million [...]

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 07/29/2014 14:48

With 77 million Americans having debt past due and the average household owing more than $15,000 in credit card debt, it appears the Fed’s supposed plan to ‘help Main Street’ is not working so well. As the following chart from NewEdge’s Brad Wishak shows, despite Fed Funds [...]

Is This The Chart That Has High-Yield Investors Running For The Hills?

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 07/28/2014 19:51

We discussed the major rotation, overvaluation, and underperformance of high-yield credit markets recently as relevering stock-buying-back firms find their source of funding starting to dry up. The question is – why now? Perhaps this chart of the wall of maturing corporate debt ($3.9 trillion by 2019 [...]

NYSE Margin Debt Storms Back To All Time Highs

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 07/28/2014 18:33

A month ago we explained why ordinary margin debt (such as that tracked by the NYSE) is largely irrelevant as it completely ignores the leverage of the largest investor class (aside from the Primary Dealers who use Fed reserves as collateral against which to [...]

China Is Headed Towards a Brutal Collapse In The Near Future

thedailysheeple.com / Joshua Krause / July 27th, 2014

When Greece fell into shambles a few years ago, many economists looked to their ‘debt to GDP’ ratio for an explanation. At over 100 percent, it seemed to be an obvious cause (now at around 150 percent). However, when looking around the world, many nations [...]

theautomaticearth.com / Raúl Ilargi Meijer / July 27, 2014

As the propaganda war over 298 innocent dead people plunges into ever deeper absurdity, I think we may have found the answer to a question that intrigued me over the past few days: why did Ukraine PM Yatsenyuk and his government resign all of [...]

mybudget360.com / July 25, 2013

Market Report: Corrective Action

goldmoney.com / By Alasdair Macleod / 25 July 2014

Ding, Ding! The bell tolls, not for the 1%, but for the remaining 99% in Europe, the UK, Japan, and the US.

Legal Tender Renders Planning Impossible

news.goldseek.com / By Keith Weiner / 24 July 2014

There is much confusion over what the legal tender law does. I have read articles, written by people who are otherwise knowledgeable about economics, claiming that legal tender forces merchants to accept dollars under threat of imprisonment. Recently, I wrote a short article for Forbes clarifying [...]
