November 25, 2021 | Global Warning on the Greatest Financial Mania in History

The first step is to identify what the key market action really is. With America’s change from a pro-business to a socialist administration, the popular alarm has been that “Inflation is back!”, as in the 1970s. Even more hysterical is that some “name” hedge fund managers have been calling for “Hyperinflation”, as afflicted Germany in the […]

June 22, 2021 | America: Brutal Revolution of Benign Reform?

What’s it going to be like when ordinary folk become more emphatic in saying “No!” to unrelenting intrusion by the dangerously ambitious Left? Will globalists force another bloody revolution?

May 7, 2021 | America’s Cultural Revolution

In its own way, the United States of America is suffering the equivalent of Mao’s Cultural Revolution of the 1960s.

January 22, 2021 | Democrat Compulsions About Political Novelties

In just going back to President Lyndon B. Johnson, Democrats have been pixilated by political novelty. Often trashing being sensible, but for Democrats—what is sensible? LBJ was a “dirt-poor” teacher from a “dirt-poor” part of Texas. Who when not picking up dogs by their ears or specifically detailing the next day’s bombing targets in North Vietnam, […]

January 11, 2021 | Radical Left: Tragically Still Winning

Until Wednesday, Trump’s convivial rallies have been historically big and convivial. Enjoyed by happy patriots who knew they were winning.

December 31, 2020 | Princely Finance and Taxation

One would have hoped that financial rip-offs committed by medieval princes would have been permanently shelved when liberal enlightenment ended the divine right of kings. Instead, some kind of divine right of bureaucrats has forced too much in-your-face and in-your-wallet government. Today’s version of greedy royalty. And the remedy lies in popular uprisings against bullying […]

December 19, 2020 | Glorious New Issue Markets and Turn-Of-The-Year Tops

No need to expand upon “Glorious”, but a “New Issue Market” invites some detailing.  Historically, one of the features of a mature bull market is that the demand for stocks excites a rush by underwriters to take private companies public. Such offerings have been called new issues. Certainly from their wild record with the South […]

December 14, 2020 | The FBI Is The KGB For Democrats

November 22, 2020 | When The New York Times Had Integrity

The New York Times accomplishments have ranged from admirable to deplorable. But no matter how questionable the “newspaper of record” can be, it’s always been esteemed by fashionable people. A regrettable phase occurred in the early 1930s when most everyone from hairy intellectuals to society matrons admired Communism. A 1990’s FEE article outlined that the […]

May 16, 2020 | Inflation–Deflation

The government world of policymakers is confident that massive reflation by central bankers will restore the economy.

October 24, 2018 | Extraordinary Confiscations by The State

The two ways the state aggrandizes itself is through raising taxation to levels that prompt protest.
