If the price oil fell to $3 a barrel, and it stayed there for 10 years, that would be a good thing.

While the central banks of the world have yet to directly unleash the helicopter drop of free money to the end-consumer, preferring instead to seek financial asset inflation (and all its unintended consequences), it appears there is another way to get ‘free money’ direct to the average […]

If yesterday’s slightly tailing 10 Year auction was a non-event, today’s $16 billion 30 Year refunding was one of the uglier long-end auctions in a while, which perhaps is to be expected in a world in which the Fed is, for the time being, no longer […]

With the USDJPY repeatedly hitting 116.00 as a result of the same pair of headlines hitting either Reuters, the Nikkei or Sankei every 6 or so hours for the past 3 days, namely that Japan will delay its sales tax hike by almost two years, […]

Behind the curtain, the long list of those who support the USA against ISIS has no substance. Why? This is a religious war and therein lies the problem. The Muslin community is throughout Europe and the great fear is their citizens run to join ISIS […]

In the pantheon of utter political stupidity in our time, the competition is pretty fierce to see who ranks #1.
But I have to imagine that, even with so many rivals, Argentina’s Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner makes a pretty compelling argument to be the champion.

Profit on subprime is just too juicy to resist.
We called them “note lots.” People with terrible credit could go buy an old beater there. Ideally, it worked like this: you walked in with $500 cash. The dealer showed you a “cream puff” he’d bought […]
