Bill Bonner’s Outrage

An Inverted Yield Curve Isn’t a Tragedy… It’s an Outrage   Van Bryan Aug. 18, 2029   It inverted… We’re talking about the yield curve, that unnervingly prescient recession indicator. The last time this happened was 2007, right before the worst financial crisis of the 21st century. Wall Street took the news poorly. Stocks sold off. The S&P 500 dropped 3% on Wednesday. But the inverted yield curve is more than just a tragedy for speculators. As Bill put it, it’s an outrage. This week, our editor knew precisely who to blame for this insult… Have We Already Seen “Peak America”? To start the week, stocks remain near all-time highs. High stock prices represent an optimism for the future. But Bill’s not convinced. Everywhere in America there is phony money, artificial rates, and a bloated central government. America may have reached its zenith decades ago, and the long, miserable decline lies ahead… The 21st Century Is a Big, Fat Bust The century started with such hope. America was on top of the world. The Cold War was over. Business was booming. It seemed to be “the end of history.” But after nearly two decades, Bill looks around at all the breathtaking claptrap from the Fed… Wall Street… and the Swamp. Our editor wonders, maybe the future isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. How America Lost to a Nutjob Economy What promises have...

Bill Bonner Proves It

The Bull Rally Is a Bear Market Bounce   Van Bryan Aug. 11, 2019   “Monster bloodbath.” That’s how the mainstream financial press described Monday’s fall in stocks. In a four-day span, $1.4 trillion had vanished. Investors are wringing their hands. “Is this the end of the bull market?” they wonder. This week, Bill had some bad news. It was never a real bull market anyway. The action in stocks for the past eight years has been nothing more than a bear market bounce. And this week, Bill proved it. The Doom Index Is Heating Up… To start the week, Bill checks in on his proprietary Doom Index. The system is designed to alert investors when the conditions for a crash are ripe. In 2019, the Doom Index feels the earth begin to rumble. Storms are on the horizon. China’s Role in the Worldwide Bamboozle The U.S. government labeled China as a “currency manipulator.” President Trump has gotten tough on America’s great economic adversary. But Bill is skeptical that POTUS will take things too far. China has a role to play in the great economic swindle of our time… Mr. Market Will Shut This Party Down With stocks rebounding on Wednesday, the bull market seems alive and well. Pour a drink. Turn up the tunes. The party goes on. But as the old-timers say, the mission of a bear market is to...

The Global Currency War Has Begun

China’s Yuan Breaks the 7 to $1 Band. Why is The Dollar Rising?   Dr. Jack Rasmus Aug. 5, 2019   Over this weekend, China’s Yuan currency broke out of its band and devalued to more than 7 to $1. At the same time China announced it would not purchase more US agricultural goods. The Trump-US Neocon trade strategy has just imploded. As this writer has been predicting, the threshold has now been passed, from a tariff-trade war to a broader economic war between the US and China where other tactics and measures are now being implemented.   Trump will no doubt declare that China is manipulating its currency   A devaluation of the Yuan has the effect of negating Trump tariffs imposed on China. But China isn’t manipulating its currency. Manipulation is defined as entering global money markets to buy and/or sell one’s currency in exchange for dollars (the global trading currency) in order to influence the price (exchange rate) of one’s currency in relation to the dollar. But China is not doing that, so it’s not manipulating. What’s happening is the US dollar is rising in value (or expected to) and that rise in effect lowers the value of the Yuan. The same is happening to other currencies as well,as the dollar rises. Why is the dollar then rising? There’s a global stampede to safety and that...
