I recently pointed out that the Fed’s 5-year campaign to drive the 30-year mortgage rate from 6.5% to 3.3% had accomplished nothing except to touch off another of those pointless “refi” booms which enable homeowners to swap an existing mortgage for a new one carrying a [...]

There’s been a lot of attention being paid to high frequency trading (HFT) as of late. The question has been raised as to whether or not HFT rigs markets. It is true that HFT adds nothing to GDP and is simply a legalized form of [...]

The tiny country of Belgium – my beloved hunting grounds for three years a while back – with a GDP of $484 billion, a country which you can cross by bicycle in a single day if you’re really fit, a country that became famous [...]

In his latest Financial Times column Wolfgang Münchau concurs with much of what I have written here (on the Greek social economy’s deep coma) and here (on the reasons why investors are piling in) but goes on to suggest that Greece should seriously consider exiting the [...]

As if transparency is the biggest issue here, the White House has sent out an interactive 2013 federal taxpayer receipt to show you how the money our government spent supposedly broke down last year…you know, as if you or I really had a say in any [...]
Today the man who had his interview censored and entirely erased out of a CNBC segment warned King World News that the the end game for the United States will be catastrophic. This is an incredibly powerful piece with Michael Pento, the man who someone in an ivory tower made [...]

The evil of modern central banking can nowhere better be seen than in this week’s mad stampede into $4 billion of Greek bonds. The fact is, Greece is not credit-worthy at nearly any coupon yield, but most certainly not at the 4.75% sticker that was attached [...]

This is a picture of the “Velocity of Money” (US M2). In many respects, this is not a pretty picture. I suppose nothing that has been falling for upwards of 16 years can be considered a sound investment. The velocity of money has broken lows set [...]

Companies will have to increase profit margins to all-time records in order to meet estimates, is the message of utter hope embedded in the forward expectations for earnings and sales growth. As Bloomberg reports, Oppenheimer’s Andrew Burkly warns this is “a scenario we view with ongoing [...]

This Great Graphic was tweeted by Sony Kapoor. It shows GDP per capita for four large European countries and Japan. Per capita takes on increased importance given demographic considerations, like the actual decline in Japan’s population.

It’s early Tuesday morning, and I’m sitting in one of the most peaceful places imaginable the Denver airport at 5:00 AM, where I’m the only sole in sight. This evening, Miles Franklin is hosting a “Protect Your Wealth” dinner in Minneapolis, Minnesota where Andy Schectman and [...]
India’s gold imports in March rose to nearly 50 tonnes, the highest since the Reserve Bank of India’s import curbs came into force in May last year, according an estimate by the the All India Gems and Jewellery Trade Federation, an organisation that [...]

There is a battle within the European Central Bank. Some want to take stronger action. Others do not think it is necessary. It is not just a matter of counting up who is on what side of the issue. It is not simply about majority rules. [...]

So much for those already abysmally low Q1 GDP forecasts. Moments ago, the Census Bureau released trade data for February which crushed expectations of an improvement from $39.1 billion (revised to $39.3 billion) to $38.5 billion, and instead rose 7.7% to $42.3 billion, the highest monthly [...]

Oh, you want more? Well, OK, I suppose I can give more of an explanation than that. Groucho Marx used to tell a joke on himself that “I wouldn’t want to belong to any club that would admit me as a member.” That pretty [...]
