zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 07/22/2014 08:37 -0400

Consumer Price Inflation was 2.1% in June (as expected) remaining above the Fed’s mandate levels and worryingly for all those who see the Fed as omniscient… refusing to go “noisily” down. Core CPI fell very modestly to 1.9% year-over-year but the jump in gasoline prices accounted [...]

Citi: “Asset Markets Are Ill-Prepared For Any Risk-Negative Shock”

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 07/21/2014 21:33

This is a tricky period for asset markets, warns Citi’s Steven Englander. Positioning still reflects a risk-on view but the risk-on enthusiasm is in EM, equities and Asia rather than peripheral Europe. Investors are still long risk, despite the geopolitical tensions and Fed Chair [...]

charleshughsmith.blogspot.com / CHARLES HUGH SMITH / JULY 20, 2014

The Fed’s Financial Repression At Work: How Big Blue Was Turned Into A Wall Street Slush Fund

davidstockmanscontracorner.com / by David Stockman / July 18, 2014

IBM is a poster child for the ill-effects of the Fed’s financial repression. In effect, the Fed’s zero interest rate policies are telling big companies to issue truckloads of debt and use the proceeds to buyback shares hand-over-fist. That way fast money speculators on Wall Street [...]

The Fed’s Paint-By-The-Numbers Insanity: Why Humphrey-Hawkins Should Be Repealed Now

davidstockmanscontracorner.com / by David Stockman / July 17, 2014

Janet Yellen’s circuitous prattle before the congressional committees this week is a reminder that the Humphrey-Hawkins Act is an obsolete relic and should be repealed. It arose out of the Keynesian heyday in the 1970s and is predicated on a closed US economy. [...]

Dressed for Bubbles

acting-man.com / Pater Tenebrarum / July 17, 2014

Yellen Yap: Silliness, Outright Lies, and Some Refreshingly Accurate Reporting

globaleconomicanalysis.blogspot.com / Mike “Mish” Shedlock / Wednesday, July 16, 2014 11:45 PM
