06/29/2017 - Dr. Lacy Hunt: The Federal Reserve Has Undermined The Economy’s Ability To Grow

“Quantitative easing has created a lot of negatives, one of the most glaring is this liquidity which has fueled record leverage of the business balance sheet .. Quantitative easing encouraged a shift from real investment to financial investment. The Fed’s backing your play, engage in financial engineering… buyback shares, raise dividends. The business managers think they can reverse [these actions] .. It’s the investment, the real investment which grows the economy. The Fed has created very significant unintended consequences, which have undermined the US [economy’s] ability to grow and lift the standard of living.”

06/15/2017 - James Grant On The History Of Interest Rates & The State Of Markets

James Grant reflects on the History of Interest Rates, the State of Markets, and the Future of Finance .. About the Interview: We stop to remember a time, in which the extraordinary measures and unprecedented actions of our monetary and fiscal authorities would have seemed unimaginable. We take a hard look at money. How does this shadow of wealth find its value? How is the rate of interest determined, and what is the role of financial markets in facilitating the discovery of that value? What happened, in 2008 and what are the consequences, realized and yet to be discovered, of those very extraordinary and unprecedented actions taken by governments around the world to douse the flames of deflation? What was done in order to contain the contraction and to prevent the discovery of prices? What does the future hold in 2017, what investments does one make and where might one find opportunity in these oceans of uncertainty.

06/09/2017 - David Rosenberg: Thoughts On The Deflationary Headwinds Facing The US Economy, Federal Reserve Policy

“The big challenge is, if this [Boomers retiring] was happening 30 years ago, you could go to the government bond market and get 4, 5, 6%. You can’t do that today.”

“[Low Treasury yields] are why I don’t think the dividend theme is overdone. The equity market has become a more reliable generator of the reoccurring cash flows that the Boomers need than the government bond market has.”

06/05/2017 - Gordon T Long: Global Central Banks Won’t Ever Decrease Balance Sheets?

Jason Burack of Wall St for Main St interviews Gordon T Long .. discussion on if Janet Yellen and the Federal Reserve can continue to raise interest rates? .. Gordon says that the Fed could possibly do 2 more 25 basis point interest rate increases in the near future before something in the real economy or markets breaks, but that the Federal Reserve and other major global central banks cannot ever reduce their balance sheets without collapsing markets and the real economy .. Gordon highlights how the ECB now has a balance sheet over $4 trillion and so does Japan’s central bank, the Bank of Japan. Balance sheets for the PBOC and Bank of England are also massive .. Gordon thinks the Federal Reserve will have to start rapidly expanding its balance sheet in the near future rather than reducing their balance sheet .. Gordon also discusses shorting opportunities he is positioning his clients for.

05/30/2017 - Dr. Lacy Hunt: Indebtedness Cannot Be Solved By Taking On More Debt

Erik Townsend Interviews Dr. Lacy Hunt

Dr. Lacy Hunt: Dr. Hunt explains, the US debt load will continue to climb and velocity will continue to slow – unless, of couse, “we get lucky.”

Hunt points to an excellent summary was published in 2010 by McKinsey Global Institute…

“They looked at 24 advanced economies that became extremely over-indebted. The indebtedness brought on a panic year, such as 1929, 1873, 2008, and they followed the process through to completion.

It’s a very long process, and what it shows is that an indebtedness problem cannot be solved by taking on additional debt.

McKinsey says specifically that multi-year sustained rise in the savings rate, what they term austerity, is needed to solve the problem, and of course, as we all know, in modern democracies, that option doesn’t seem to exist.

So, we try to continue to use what has failed, and while we get transitory improvement in economic activity, the longer-term trend is to weaker and weaker economic performance.”

05/28/2017 - Chris Martenson: Non-U.S. Banks Are Being Paid By The U.S. Central Bank

“The Fed is now paying interest on so-called ‘excess reserves’ held at the Fed. Those ‘excess reserves’ include a huge chunk of money held there by foreign banks who are only too happy to receive 1% on their holdings from the Fed given that their own central banks are paying 0%, or even negative rates. The money that the Fed pays these foreign banks is deducted from the amount remitted to the US Treasury at the end of each fiscal year. It’s this simple: foreign banks are being paid billions .. not one single person in the US got to vote for or approve of that action. Let me repeat that: billions and billions .. are being sent to boost the profits of foreign banks. And there’s not a single thing a voting citizen can do about it .. The decision to do this has been made unilaterally by unelected people for reasons they are under no obligation to either share or even have audited by the public. I wonder if Detroit wouldn’t mind getting several billion dollars to use however it wishes, courtesy of the Federal Reserve? Or the permaculture movement? Or jobs training programs?”
