Given the presumed 17% expansion of the global economy since 2009, the tiny increases in production could not possibly flood the world in oil unless demand has cratered.
The term Black Swan shows up in all sorts of discussions, but what does it actually […]

With two consecutive quarters of contracting Gross Domestic Product, Japan is officially back in recession. GDP shrank 1.6% annualized.
Unadjusted for price changes, the Japanese economy contracted an annualized 3 percent, the Cabinet Office said.

The Dow and S&P have shrugged off any belief that yet another Japanese recession will impact the invincible American economy… but Small Caps, Nasdaq, and Trannies are a little more concerned. However, if everything is so awesome in the US, then why are credit and […]
