Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson (his wife) have returned to the United States from Australia and have recovered from this dreaded virus.  We have received countless emails from Sweden where we have a large number of readers, clients, and many very active politically.

March 31, 2020 | Eye of the Storm

March 31, 2020 | What to Do When No Company, No Commodity, and No Investor Is Immune

I look out my window and see that the streets below remain silent. Shops and cafés remain closed. Only essential businesses are open, and even those are curtailed to core functions. This is obviously devastating for the economy—and for the resource sector that provides it with raw materials. But there’s less obvious damage that goes […]

March 31, 2020 | Wild

Eeeeeeeeow! What a wild ride. The stock market careened lower from record highs in just a few weeks by a shocking 38%. But lately it’s zipped back up an impressive 22%. Mr. Market apparently doesn’t think the world is ending. So I guess he doesn’t read the comments on this pathetic blog. (When I walked […]

March 31, 2020 | Good Outcome From Pandemic Shock: Buybacks have Slowed Dramatically

Corporations buying back their own shares was the largest source of equity demand manufactured in the 2009 to 2019 expansion cycle. Borrowing funds to do so was the go-to genius financial gimmick to boost prices and earnings per share. It is also one of the main reasons that publicly traded corporations are today at record […]

March 30, 2020 | Notes from Flight 163, the Oil Sands Shuttle from Toronto to Edmonton

“On a recent Monday morning, I found myself on Air Canada Flight 163 from Toronto Pearson to Edmonton,” writes Stewart Muir. “As the plane loaded, I began to sense there was something not so regular about the passengers boarding the Airbus 320 for a regularly scheduled flight.” Unlike those I more typically see on my […]

March 30, 2020 | P For Pandemic (Populist Rage)

In Part One of this article I detailed the criminal enterprise that constitutes the leadership of this country. The facts are clear. We’ve been screwed over by those who were supposed to represent us. Now it is time to look in the mirror and decide whether we will continue to bow down before our keepers […]

March 30, 2020 | Emerging ‘Recession’ Will Be Significant!

This policymaker says he has unlimited ammunition (going forward). REALLY? This policymaker says our economy will return to its former self in 2020? REALLY? This is an image for where we are going. The debt game will create this result within a couple of years! As an economist who has followed our economy for years, […]

March 30, 2020 | 60 Minutes Australia: COVID-19 Whistleblowers Silenced by China

Travelling in Spain over Christmas, I came down with terrible flu: head and body aches, fever, violent dry cough, exhaustion. I was on the couch for a few days and coughing for a couple of weeks.  I did not pass it on to my family, amazingly, and I think this suggests it was not a […]

March 30, 2020 | Virus Porn

March 30, 2020 | Is the Fed Public or Private?

The people who love to weave conspiracy theories about the Fed are twisting the fact that the Fed’s design from the outset was to be a private organization. The banks were the shareholders BECAUSE it was to be a bailout system for them as J.P. Morgan had acted during the Panic of 1907. The banks […]

I have three investable ideas for you. But before I tell you about them, I want to give you a little context first. This past week, Congress and the White House passed a $2 trillion “rescue” bill for Wall Street and the broader economy — $6 trillion if you include all the new lending the […]

March 29, 2020 | Don’t Be Dangerously Misled by the Rallie

Over the weekend, we learned enough about the virus to understand why things won’t be trending even remotely back to normal by Easter, as some may have hoped. Grave uncertainties will remain for possibly much longer, including whether spring break will turn out to be a devastating vector of contagion. In early January, a friend’s […]

March 29, 2020 | P For Pandemic

“People should not be afraid of their governments.

March 29, 2020 | Postcards from the Frontline

Unprecedented events are happening so fast, I barely know where to start. But let’s begin with a small one, noticeable perhaps only to me.

March 29, 2020 | Press Uses Virus Against Trump
