May 31, 2021 | There Are No Solutions (PART ONE)

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. …We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, […]

May 31, 2021 | Helicopter Money and Debt Jubilees

It has been fascinating to watch the Governments response to combatting the pandemic from an economic perspective. Remember, in Q2 2020, at the onset of the pandemic, labour income declined by $20B. However, government transfers not only plugged the hole in the leaking ship, they went above and beyond that. Government transfers to households grew […]

May 31, 2021 | Property for the People

Imagine if, for a lousy hundred bucks, you could become a real estate investor. Own a piece of a property. Collect income. Be a rentier capitalist landed-gentry dude. And stop watching the endless parade of housing profits pass you by. It’s a Millennial-Gen Z dream come true. Enter Willow. “Property for the People,” says the butter-slick […]

May 30, 2021 | Deflation Talk

If you could ask the world’s top central bankers what really terrifies them, I think the honest answer would usually be “deflation.” It is their greatest nightmare. They think a little inflation is good (thus the 2%+ target), and they’re confident they can subdue it if necessary. Deflation is a bigger problem. Let’s note, however, […]

May 29, 2021 | What a Viral Photo Tells Us (and doesn’t tell us) About a Big Log on a Truck

Sometimes an image comes along that seems to encapsulate a moment in time – an iconic photo like an exuberant couple kissing on VJ-Day in Times Square, or a politician fumbling a football on the campaign trail. Stewart Muir looks at one interesting picture. The story behind the story To a great many social media […]

May 29, 2021 | Trading Desk Notes For May 29, 2021

Chinese RMB hits 3-year high Vs. the USD The Chinese RMB rose nearly 4% against the US Dollar in the last two months – closing this week at a 3-year high. Some analysts believe the rally in the RMB was “engineered” by the Chinese government ahead of trade talks with the USA; however, the USD […]

May 28, 2021 | Fed’s Favorite Lowball Inflation Gauge is Red-Hot, Not Seen in Decades, Even Without the “Base Effect”

The Fed’s favorite inflation measure, generally the lowest inflation measure the US government provides — tracking a lot lower than even the Consumer Price Index which already understates actual inflation — and therefore our lowest lowball inflation measure, and therefore the Fed’s favorite inflation measure, was released this morning, and it was a doozie, despite […]

May 28, 2021 | Why Has Fed Stopped Publishing Weekly Money Supply?

  The Federal Reserve has discontinued updating the M1 and M2 weekly money supply series and is instead now updating the series monthly. What is really going on is what I have been talking about and was one of the key subjects behind the book I published – Manipulating the World Economy (5th edition to […]

May 28, 2021 | Canadians View Natural Resources as an Important Pathway to Indigenous Economic Development: New Poll

  Western Canadians lead the country in understanding the importance of responsible resources for Indigenous economic development. But more work is needed to tell the story of how Canadian natural resource and energy companies have transformed partnerships with Indigenous communities. A newly released Ipsos poll conducted on behalf of Resource Works and the Indigenous Partnership Success Showcase (IPSS) demonstrated that […]

May 28, 2021 | Rosenberg Reviews Inflation Narrative

How well we interpret and respond to the inflation cycle defines longer-term investment outcomes more than anything else.  With the consensus now confidently in the accelerating inflation camp, alternate views are rare and worth considering.  David explains dominant factors well in this segment. Are we really facing secular inflation? How the recent stimulus impacts the inflation narrative FED […]

May 28, 2021 | Giving Up

The kids are pissed. Rightly so. This may not end well for T2. A final straw might be this week’s announcement that Ottawa will hand over $5,000 to anybody who wants it – and owns a house – for a quick reno. Windows. New furnace. Insulation. New doors. If it looks vaguely ‘green’, it qualifies. […]

May 28, 2021 | The IEA Claims That Net Zero by 2050 is Possible but Difficult

The International Energy Agency (IEA) released a special report on May 18, 2021, called “Net Zero by 2050: A Roadmap for the Global Energy Sector”. The IEA is sponsored by the largest countries in the world, including Canada, Australia and the U.S. and publishes the World Energy Outlook annually. This special report pushes for radical […]

May 28, 2021 | CLOs Join The Everything Bubble

The “Everything Bubble” has jumped from hyperbole to literal truth in just a couple of years, as more and more assets enter “crazy expensive/extremely reckless” territory. The latest addition to the list is collateralized loan obligations (CLOs), which are created when a bank lends money to a less-than-creditworthy company and then bundles that loan with […]

May 27, 2021 | Natural Resources are More than 50% of BC’s Economic Base. Surprised?

An economic study shows that British Columbia’s endowment of natural resources remains a primary source of the province’s wealth. Neglecting the health of these industries would come at the cost of our standard of living. A population of 5 million could not efficiently produce all the products that are standard features of a modern standard of living […]

May 27, 2021 | Shades

  Well, we told ya. Follow the money. Thursday was epic. Three of the Big 6 banks confirmed what must be obvious to everyone, save the doomers, nihilists, pantywaists and GOFs (grump old farts) who live in the nether regions of this blog. What did we learn? First, the pandemic is over. At least on […]

May 27, 2021 | Collapse in Confidence by Refusal to Vaccinate

COMMENT: Marty, If people trusted the government, then the vaccine campaign would have been successful. The fact they are using money to induce personal choice is telling. The fact they have surplus dosis to send overseas is clear proof. The fact the change in the mask guidelines is still being resisted by Biden and his […]

May 27, 2021 | You Should Never Trade Options If You Don’t Know This…

Have you ever heard someone say “90% of people that trade options lose money.”? I certainly have. Looking at an options chain can be a dizzying exercise for the uninformed. Delta, Gamma, Theta, Rho, Vega – and let’s not forget – implied volatility? Single, spread, butterfly, condor. What does it all mean? So what is […]
