      Some day — I hope I live long enough to see this, the AIIB, etc. relevant. Once the USD is no longer the world’s reserve currency with all that goes with that, it will be harder for the U.S. to play world hegemon. But for now . . .? These non-dollar exchanges are not remotely ready to be truly relevant; and certainly not with European leaders who refuse to stand up to the U.S. That will change some day, but not before at least one more BIG bust forces the issue.

      I agree the US Dollar will be toast.
      After all other fiat currencies have crumbled to dust.

        I think the Swiss franc will outlive the US dollar…would be nailed on if they hadn’t broken the gold backing in 2000

    Did I miss the start of open season for cops?

    This is unbelievable.
    The third cop shooting this week.
    All the Democratic loonie tunes think it’s a field day./week.

    47 people shot in Chicago over the weekend was bad enough.

    OK, I’m not an economist.
    I know that stock markets go from under valued to over valued and back again……they oscillate above and below true value. Always trying to seek “true value”, but seemingly mostly missing.

    Clearly, by historical measures, stock markets are over valued.
    But most assets of “real wealth” seem over-valued. In Bubbles.
    Real estate is “over-valued”
    Art is “over-valued”
    Antique cars are “over-valued”.

    As interest rates, our measure of the value of money, go to zero, what does that say about the value of money ?
    Is it really saying we will have a recession because of the interest rate inversion….
    Or is it really saying our measure of the value of money has become meaningless ?
    I believe the driver of interest rates has changed (No matter what the Fed says)

    I believe it is not consideration of the ebullience of the economy that is driving interest rates. It is the size of the debt. We cannot afford higher interest rates because the cost of carrying the debt would be too great. The obvious deduction from this belief…..

    We may or may not have a recession, but it has nothing to do with interest rate inversion.

    I believe Israel will allow Rashida Tlaib to enter Israel, but will gag her from speaking publicly inside Israel, because she is a rabble-rousing trouble-maker.
