Financial, Economic and Social Mood Update (September 4, 2016)

Financial, Economic and Social Mood Update (September 4, 2016) The Dow Jones 30 Industrial Index and the S&P 500 Index both made new record nominal highs on August 15, 2016. The global bond market is on the cusp of what will likely be its most massive crash in recorded history – interest rates and yields are at artificially low levels (about 30 percent of global sovereign debt is actually trading at negative yields) and the next major historical wave should take interest rates in the industrialized world beyond levels last seen in 1981 and 1982 – in other words, well into double digits. The largest monetary investment in recorded human history is now actively being led from Mainland China. The Chinese refer to this as the “Silk Road” and/or as the “One Belt, one Road” project. The money committed thus far equals US $1.4 TRILLION, involving 64 member countries (mostly … [Read More...]

All of the major American political parties have chosen their Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates for the November 2016 election. The Democratic ticket has an average popular vote advantage of 4.4 percentage points as well as an electoral vote margin of 118 electors (Real Clear Politics).

Terminology of Financial and Economic Words & Phrases in Plain English

Terminology 1. Quantitative Easing: This is the term given to the policy of the US Federal Reserve System under the leadership of Chairman Ben Bernanke. The Fed is supposedly trying to keep interest rates / yields low (which it cannot do). The reason the Fed has no power over interest rates and bond yields is because the broader global market is simply too large to influence, even for a country as large as the USA. Quantitative easing is also supposed to stimulate economic growth, much like low interest rates and bond yields. The Fed leadership believes that with ever more credit (i.e., debt) there will be more economic activity. The problem is that there is so much credit (debt) in the system since the US Federal Reserve System was established in 1913 that we have simply reached and surpassed the point of saturation. Plainly put, the American economy is already drowning … [Read More...]

Financial, Economic and Social Mood Update (March 1, 2016)

Financial, Economic and Social Mood Update (March 1, 2016) It is utterly amazing to listen to the media tell us about how good everything is, and one can say the same thing of the major investment houses (investment banks) – they tell us that America is on top of the world, that the economy is booming and that we should continue to pour our hard-earned savings into the stock market. One need only look at the US Presidential Primary and Caucus season in 2016 – it is playing out like a horror show.
