Stockman Slams “Bubble Finance And The Era of No-See-Um Recessions”

Authored by David Stockman via Contra Corner blog, Today's single most dangerous Wall Street meme is that there is no risk of a stock market crash because there is no recession in sight. But that proposition is dead wrong because it's a relic of your grandfather's economy. That is, a reasonably functioning capitalist order in which the […]


Albert Edwards: “Clients No Longer Care About Overvaluation; They Are Concerned About Triggers And Timing”

“How do you know when an asset price rise has turned into a bubble?” That’s the rhetorical question Albert Edwards leads his today’s Global Strategy Weekly note, and responds that in the non- virtual world, valuation is often a good starting point. “A bubble can also be identified by the steepness and persistence of any […]


Stephen Roach Warns “Complacency Will Be Tested In 2018”

Authored by Stephen Roach via Project Syndicate, Despite seemingly robust indicators, the world economy may not be nearly as resilient to shocks and systemic challenges as the consensus view seems to believe.

Trump, Netanyahu, & Bin Salman: Destroyers Of The Neoliberal World Order

Authored by Federico Pieraccini via The Strategic Culture Foundation, The neoliberal world order has been in crisis for some years now, with no signs of recovery. Trump's victory is an expression of a breach of trust between the American people and the national elites. The perfect storm. This is what the situation in the Middle East looks like. More […]


Yellen’s Big Goodbye (And What She’s Leaving Behind)

Authored by Kevin Muir via The Macro Tourist blog, The past three Fed Chairs before Yellen all had their own crisis to deal with. Volcker had the disaster of the early 1980’s as he struggled to tame inflation with double digit interest rates. That helped contribute to the Latin American debt crisis, and the subsequent […]


Druckenmiller: “I’ve Had A Terrible Year… It’s Going To Be My First Down Year In Currencies Ever”

With the B in CNBC now officially standing for “Bitcoin”, it was inevitable that Stanley Druckenmiller, the CEO of the Duquesne family office would immediately get a question about the soaring cryptocurrency during his Tuesday interview with Kelly Evans, whose explosive price the Dusquesne asset manager attributed – just like Citi did back in June […]


The 30-Years Bubble – Why America Ain’t That Rich

Authored by David Stockman via Contra Corner, The entire financial and economic narrative in today's Bubble Finance world is virtually context- and history-free; it's all about the short-term deltas and therefore exceedingly misleading and dangerous. So when a big trend or condition is negative and unsustainable, you generally can't even get a glimpse of it from the so-called "high-frequency" weekly, monthly and […]

WTO economists raised their forecast to 3.6% from 2.4%, which was at the top end of the previous 1.8-3.6% range. This marked a sharp acceleration from […]


These Are The Top 5 Legislative Issues That Could Force The Next Government Shutdown

House Republicans successfully managed to kick the can down the road (if only for two weeks) when they managed to pass a two-week extension last week of the continuing resolution that had been funding the government since September. But after overcoming obstacles created by Democrats and conservative Republicans – with each camp pushing for priorities […]


“Statists Don’t Share” – A Race To The Potential For Bitcoin

Authored by Jeffrey Snider via Alhambra Investment Partners, The timing just never seems to fall in our favor. If we had had this conversation ten years ago as would have been appropriate, then this evolution might have fell perfectly in our collective laps.

Deutsche: “We Are Almost At The Point Beyond Which There Will Be No More Bubbles”

Whereas many Wall Street strategists enjoy simplifying their stream of consciousness when conveying their thoughts to their increasingly ADHD-afflicted audience, the same can not be said for Deutsche Bank’s Aleksandar Kocic, who has a troubling habit of requiring a background and competency in grad level post-modernist literature as a prerequisite for his articles among the […]
