A new Martenson Report is ready for enrolled members.
Link: Housing and Wealth
There are several economic issues and data sets that we are tracking closely here on a daily and weekly basis because they have the best opportunity to help us illuminate the path for a few more feet.
One has been the flow of money into and out of the US. There we’ll continue to track and explain the mechanisms while keeping a firm eye on the dollar and interest rate (via Treasuries) pair.
Another has been the various government and Federal Reserve programs to inject money into the economy and financial institutions, respectively, as these maneuvers have distortive effects on the rest of the data.
But the main driver from a consumer standpoint has been housing. Every so often we dive into that area pretty deeply and this week we head into housing and where we currently stand with respect to prices, inventory, liquidity, and demand.
This is part one of a two part report.
