The Dollar’s Reign As The Global Reserve Currency Is Running Out – Fast

The dollar’s hegemony over the global financial system can’t last forever. Like all things, it will eventually come to an end.

Why Wall Street Is Furious At The Trump Tax Plan

The Best Tax Incentive In The World

Authored by Simon Black via SovereignMan.com, In a move almost destined to prove that laws and policies have absolutely zero meaning, the European Union released a list of “tax havens” last week… with a massive, giant, highly conspicuous omission.

The “Bombshell” Reason Tech Stocks Just Suffered The Biggest Rout Since Brexit, In Two Charts

“Last week, after making new highs, the NASDAQ “reversed” to the downside. It bounced from there, but yesterday’s action was horrific, for having opened sharply, violently, surprisingly higher, by the day’s end the NASDAQ was sharply, violently, surprisingly weaker and it was so even as the Dow finished higher on the day, albeit materially below […]


Summers Warns “1000s Will Die” But Who Are The Real Winners & Losers From Trump’s Tax Reform?

Before You Book That Vacation, JPM Warns Multiple Spoilers Are Converging In November

Mauldin: The Distribution Of Pain

Authored by John Mauldin via MauldinEconomics.com, When you write about economics, you learn very quickly that the economy doesn’t care what you say about it. The forces that drive it are beyond any one person’s comprehension, much less control. But at the same time, the economy doesn’t work like a law of nature. Unlike gravity, […]


How The American Dream Turned Into Greed & Inequality

Authored by Alberto Gallo via WEForum.org, The American Dream is broken.
