65.2 The Fed is right about inflation (this time)———Part 2 Summary———US producer prices surged in the month of March. But Federal Reserve chairman Jay Powell said they won't last, that they are "transitory". HE IS RIGHT! But the reason he gives - the covo - is not correct. No, the reason is the same one since 2007: the global, silent [...]

65.1 This is what caused the 1970s Dollar Devaluation———Part 1 Summary———US President Jimmy Carter told the nation that the US dollar's devaluation "is clearly not warranted by the fundamental economic situation".

One of the most common complaints I hear about the markets is that they are "divorced from reality", that they aren't acting as the current economic data would seem to dictate. I've been in this business for 30 years and I think I first heard that in year one. Or maybe even before I decided to lose my mind and [...]

Weekly Market Pulse: Nothing To See Here. No, Really. Nothing.

62.3 Why the Biden (and Trump!) Stimulus is OVERHYPED———Part 3 Summary———The 2007-09 crisis was a permanent shock. Neo-Keynesians do not believe such a thing is possible. But consumers?
