Bill Bonner on the Plague

Life in the Year of the Plague   Maria Bonaventura Apr. 19, 2020   Secluded in Argentina’s Calchaquí Valley, Bill continues his chronicles of life in the year of the plague… This week he sets out on horseback to unearth a local legend, hidden in an impenetrable rock fortress… all while connecting the dots of fake money… fake wars… and other government misadventures in America… Regards, Maria Bonaventura Managing Editor, Bill Bonner’s Diary   Siri, Where’s My Corona Bailout Check? Another week gone under lockdown, and another one to come. As the economy withers away, our editor wonders: How many lives will the shutdown truly save… and how many will it ruin? The Feds’ Fatal Flaw… and a Wake-Up Call With the coronavirus crisis in full force, many Americans are clamoring for the government to protect us and keep us safe. The only issue is, there isn’t a problem the feds can’t make worse… Vive la Révolution? The feds are replacing old-fashioned getting and spending with coronavirus stimulus. The virus may be defeated with a vaccine… but the economy is bound to suffer from their meddling long after this crisis is over.

A War the Feds Will Lose

No End in Sight Maria Bonaventura Apr. 5, 2020   As the Calchaquí River dries up, it opens the door to an unexpected visitor… And so Bill’s idyllic isolation in the northwest of Argentina comes to an abrupt end. But over in the money world, there’s no end in sight for the feds’ hopeless money-printing… Regards, Maria Bonaventura Managing Editor, Bill Bonner’s Diary   This Is a War the Feds Will Lose After three decades of stimulus, says our editor, we are now in the biggest bubble in history… popped by the C virus.

But as we’ve seen before, short-term “solutions” result in permanent measures… War Against Capitalism Besides shutting down the U.S. economy and pumping it full of funny-money, the feds are fighting another enemy: capitalism. No matter how strong the fake-money firepower may become, though, fake money won’t create real wealth… Surprise Attack The coronavirus launched a surprise attack on the world, leaving shut-down societies and economies in its wake.

But his determination...
