Bill Bonner on Weirdness

When Weird Becomes the New Normal   Maria Bonaventura Aug. 25, 2019   As our editor muses this week, America peaked around the turn of the century. And it’s been going downhill since then. The lies have gotten bigger. Deficits larger. Politics nastier and stupider. And the public is now easier to bamboozle than ever. Can Trump make America smart again? How the World Reaches Peak Weirdness Just when we thought things couldn’t get any weirder… From negative rates to “free” houses in Denmark, world leaders are trying to outdo each other in the bizarre. But as our editor points out on Monday, the weirder things get, the more people want to think they aren’t weird at all… Brace Yourself: Good News Coming Who knew managing the economy just right was so simple? Turn up the music. Dump in some more Jim Beam. And let the party rage on. There’s only one small problem… and it involves an explosion of fakery… 21st-Century America: Rotten but Gluten-Free If you listen to the geniuses on TV, you’d think the boom on Wall Street can go on forever. But as Bill reminds us on Wednesday, every bubble pops eventually. And this one is getting damn close to the pin… Start the Presses, Let the Good Times Roll Good news! The economy is in the doghouse. That means the Fed can fire up the printing...

What Globalism Did

The US Economy Transferred to China   Paul Craig Roberts Aug. 21, 2019   The main problem with the US economy is that globalism has been deconstructing it. The offshoring of US jobs has reduced US manufacturing and industrial capability and associated innovation, research, development, supply chains, consumer purchasing power, and tax base of state and local governments. Corporations have increased short-term profits at the expense of these long-term costs. In effect, the US economy is being moved out of the First World into the Third World. Tariffs are not a solution. The Trump administration says that the tariffs are paid by China, but unless Apple, Nike, Levi, and all of the offshoring companies got an exemption from the tariffs, the tariffs fall on the offshored production of US firms that are sold to US consumers. The tariffs will either reduce the profits of the US firms or be paid by US purchasers of the products in higher prices. The tariffs will hurt China only by reducing Chinese employment in the production of US goods for US markets. The financial media is full of dire predictions of the consequences of a US/China “trade war.” There is no trade war. A trade war is when countries try to protect their industries by placing tariff barriers on the import of cheaper products from foreign countries. But half or more of the...

The “Trade War” Is Over

Trump Just Doesn’t Realize It Yet!   Lance Roberts Aug. 19, 2019   On Tuesday, the markets bid higher following a statement from the U.S. Trade Representative’s office that tariffs will commence on September 1st, but that some products will be delayed until December 15th. To wit: “…some tariffs will take effect on Sept. 1 as planned, ‘certain products are being removed from the tariff list based on health, safety, national security and other factors and will not face additional tariffs of 10 percent. Further, as part of USTR’s public comment and hearing process, it was determined that the tariff should be delayed to December 15 for certain articles.” The only part the algos heard was “tariffs delayed,” which sent them into stock panic buying mode. However, stocks crashed again on Wednesday as the yield curve inverted, sending “recession fears”through the markets. Of course, since President Trump has pegged the success of his Presidency on the rise and fall of the markets, on Wednesday, as “tweets” about a “trade talks continuing” failed to lift the markets, he resorted to more direct measures to manipulate the markets: Via CNBC: “Trump held the call with J.P. Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, Bank of America’s Brian Moynihan and Citigroup’s Michael Corbat, according to people with knowledge of the situation.” This, of course, was reminiscent of the call made by Steve Mnuchin, U.S. Treasury Secretary, during the market rout last December. But most importantly, this is about...
