September 29, 2023 | What is a “Normal” Interest Rate?

Bob Hoye has been in investment business for some 50 years, making him one of the more experienced researchers. His historical work has been thorough providing the first recognition of the fascinating transition from speculation in commodities to speculation in financial assets. It was controversial when Bob observed that “No matter how much the Fed prints, stocks will outperform commodities”. In January 2000, the research team concluded that the Dot-Com Bubble would peak in March 2000. In early 2007, the team outlined that the credit markets would reverse in May-June 2007. They did and the stock market followed. The latest was the call in early October for the Bitcoin Bubble to complete in December. Bob’s essays and speeches on political change and on actual climate change have been widely circulated.

    Hello Bob and Jim. Fortune Magazine headline: Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour will be the first to shatter $1 billion in ticket sales, making a lot of people richer: ‘The dollar bill should have her face on it’. Apparently the cities that host her concerts are bringing in hundreds of millions in business. Bob, I’m confused. Are we entering the age of the “celebrity- based economy” as the “service-based economy” goes into decline? Also, can Swift’s image on the dollar bill really be like a new gold standard and support the value of the dollar? Maybe her image should be on Bitcoin.
