November 30, 2021 | The Lack of Independent Thought

I find it really disturbing that people you thought were capable of independent thought turn out to be like a drone just maneuvering through life without a clue. Geraldo Rivera actually said: “If I’m in your room with my grandchildren who are not vaccinated because they are too young and you lie about vaccine status, […]

November 30, 2021 | How Long Until Inflation Breaks Germany?

During the 1923 Weimar Republic hyperinflation, newly-destitute Germans burned their life savings to keep warm or carted wheelbarrows of cash to stores to buy bread and milk. This wipe-out of an entire generation’s wealth led directly to Hitler and WWII, arguably the two dumbest mistakes made by any country ever. So these guys understand the […]

November 30, 2021 | Was 2021 the Peak for Davos

Schwab is, at last, starting to realize that there is a price to his […]

November 30, 2021 | The Most Splendid Housing Bubbles in America, November Update: Another Holy-Cow Moment

“After 14 consecutive months of acceleration, the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller index finally took a turn,” said CoreLogic Deputy Chief Economist Selma Hepp today. But wait… Instead of spiking at a rate of 2% or more from month to month, the national index spiked by only 1.0% in the latest month, whittling down the year-over-year spike […]

November 29, 2021 | Mass Psychosis and Totalitarianism

“Logic can be met with logic, while illogic cannot—it confuses those who think straight. The Big Lie and monotonously repeated nonsense have more emotional appeal in a cold war than logic and reason. While the enemy is still searching for a reasonable counter-argument to the first lie, the totalitarians can assault him with another.” ― […]

November 28, 2021 | AAPL Could Yet Spoil Permabears’ Celebration

  Friday felt like a Pearl Harbor attack on Wall Street. Since when did a Thanksgiving Friday fill investors with dread and fear?

November 27, 2021 | Covid Rising Concerns for 2022

COMMENT: Dear Marty, The fact that Socrates identified 2022, not 2020-2021, as a possible pandemic period has me very concerned,  These new C-19 mutations along with reports of decreased natural immunity among the vaccinated vs non-vaccinated could be the currently unknown ingredients for the perfect healthcare disaster.  Considering Socrates has never been wrong and seemingly unrelated/unanticipated […]

Recently the Deputy Governor of the Bank of Canada, Paul Beaudry, made a speech about the resilience of the Canadian financial system.

Is the Bank of Canada ignoring the risks? The speech was […]

November 26, 2021 | Rough Patch in Bubble-Land

International stocks and commodities are tied at the hip in liquidation selling today, as usual, reminding yet again that different coloured jellybeans in different product wrappers do not offer meaningful risk diversification. Cryptos, too:  no hold of value here, folks. As expected, risk sellers are heading to government bonds and out of commodity-centric currencies like […]
