Via ConvergEx’s Nick Colas,
Tell me truthfully: do you actually get a lot of value from quarterly earnings reports? It’s not actually me asking; it is the Securities and Exchange Commission and the NIRI trade group, the most influential group of Investor Relations professionals in U.S. […]

To make a broader point, so often in the past there’s been a sharp division between left and right, between capitalist and communist or socialist. And especially in the Americas, that’s been a big debate, right? […]

Not only are young voters more likely to support Democrats than Republicans, they are also more likely to support the most left-wing Democrats. In recent polls of voters under 30, self-declared democratic socialist Bernie Sanders beats the more mainstream Hillary Clinton by […]

Two years ago, Victoria Nuland’s new puppet state, Ukraine, celebrated its freedom from the clutches of its recently deposed president Yanukovich, a coup which U.S. foreign policy experts said would end crony capitalism, government corruption and unleash democracy and prosperity. Two years later, the county […]

Everything happening today is in some ways interconnected: popularity of ‘non-establishment’ political candidates; ineffectiveness of central bank policy in lifting inflation; economic pessimism; weak capital spending (from handcuffed capitalism); and angst due to perceptions of inequality.
Scotiabank’s Guy Haselmann explains…
Business investment and capitalism are […]

Interest rates in Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden, the European Central Bank and now the Bank Japan have now plunged into negative territory, starting a new phase in the era of central banking that is very much uncharted.

I am a longtime Amazon bear. I was even short for a time. I lost a decent amount of money, but it could have been worse. I was short when it was in the 200s.
Principally, I object to Amazon not making any money, or at […]

Banks are parasites. Big Banks are very large parasites. It is the fundamental equation of human commerce in the 21st century.
Bankers are the quintessential middle-men: contributing nothing to our economies, while blood-sucking us for assorted “fees”, and (most importantly) interest payments. Many readers will object […]

Several readers sent me a link to Economists Prove That Capitalism Is Unnecessary.
