Authored by Lance Roberts via RealInvestmentAdvice.com, The “tax bill cometh.” According to the press, this is going to be the single biggest factor to jump-starting economic growth since the invention of the wheel.

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

While many in the 'resistance' have vociferously denounced the Senate tax reform bill in the last 48 hours, former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers took the proverbial biscuit by warning that "thousands will die as a consequence of this new tax bill." The Congressional Budget Office estimated that the tax bill could reduce insurance coverage by […]

We present some somber reading on this holiday Sunday from Macquarie Capital’s Viktor Shvets, who in this exclusive to ZH readers excerpt from his year-ahead preview, explains why central banks can no longer exit the “doomsday highway” as a result of a “dilemma from hell” which no longer has a practical, real-world resolution, entirely as […]

Mark Zuckerberg’s Long Litany Of Failings – Mainstream Media Turns On Social Media

The mainstream media is a fickle beast beholden to the direction of the prevailing political winds. Unfortunately for Facebook, Google and Twitter, those winds have turned about face in recent weeks as the political establishment thrashes about in its misguided efforts to prove that – aided by social media – Russia changed the course of […]


700 Years Of Data Suggests The Reversal In Rates Will Be Rapid

Have we been lulled into a false sense of security about the future path of rates by ZIRP/NIRP policies? Central banks’ misguided efforts to engineer inflation have undoubtedly been woefully feeble, so far. As the Federal Reserve “valiantly” raises short rates, markets ignore its dot plot and yield curves continue to flatten. And thanks to […]


Weekend Reading: Markets Love Central Banks – No Matter What They Do

Authored by Lance Roberts via RealInvestmentAdvice.com, I discussed yesterday, the apparent “myth” of the Fed’s proposed “balance sheet reduction” program as the most recent analysis shows a $13.5 billion “reinvestment” into their balance sheet which has helped fuel the recent market advance. But therein lies the potential “fatal flaw” of the “bullish logic.”  At the […]


Weekend Reading: Dow 24,000 By Christmas

Authored by Lance Roberts via RealInvestmentAdvice.com, This past week, the Dow crested 23000 sending the networks into a “tizzy.” It took about 5-minutes of crossing that magical “round number,” before questions raised of how long before the markets cross 24,000, and 25,000. The chart below shows the 1000-point milestones of the Dow going back to […]


Weekend Reading: $7 Trillion To Manipulate Prices

Authoreed by Lance Roberts via RealInvestmentAdvice.com, As the stock market continues to press new highs, the level of optimism climbs with it. I discussed yesterday Richard Thaler’s, a recent recipient of the Nobel Price in Economics, comments about not understanding the current “irrationality of investors relating to their investing behavior.” What is interesting is that […]


Is Kevin Warsh The Ultimate Chicken-Hawk? (And Why Gold $1275 Will Hold)

Authored by Kevin Muir via The Macro Tourist, The current front-runner for the next Fed Chair is Kevin Warsh. He seems to have all the prerequisites that Trump idolizes. He’s connected. He’s not an academic. He has conservative leanings. But most important, he’s rich. I mean really rich. You see, Kevin married the granddaughter of […]


When This Debt Bubble Bursts, Central Banks Will Turn to Money Printing… Again

Let’s face the facts. The only reason the financial system has held together so well since 2008 is because Central Banks have created a bubble in bonds via massive QE programs and seven years of ZIRP/NIRP. As a result of this, the entire world has gone on a debt binge issuing debt by the trillions […]


Forget The Hype: Public Infrastructure Generates Waste, Fraud And Abuse

Authored by Steve H. Hanke of the Johns Hopkins University. Follow him on Twitter @Steve_Hanke. Economic policy is subject to fads and fashions. The most recent economic-policy fad is public infrastructure. Its advocates include progressives on the “left” and populists on the “right.” It is an undefined hallmark of President Trump’s economic program. They all […]


The Real Story Behind America’s New $20 Trillion Debt

Authored by Simon Black via SovereignMan.com, Late yesterday afternoon the federal government of the United States announced that the national debt had finally breached the inevitable $20 trillion mark.

Fed Vice Chair, Stanley Fischer…Exit Stage Left: “This One’s Gonna Hurt”

Via Global Macro Monitor, This one is going to hurt.   Stanley Fischer is one, if not, our favorite economist. As Larry Summers points out in his recent piece in the Washington Post, The Fed and the international monetary system will be weaker for his departure from official responsibility. It is the end of an era.  […]
