    Off The Cuff: It’s Getting Harder For The Fed To Hide Its Guilt

    It favors the rich as it makes the system dangerously more unstable
    by Adam Taggart

    Wednesday, September 9, 2020, 10:03 AM


    In this week’s Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Wolf Richter discuss:

    • The danger of asset bubbles
    • The Fed’s serial addiction to blowing them
    • Tesla and the shale industry as case studies
    • Covid-19s legacy on society

    Everyone loves a bubble until it bursts. And we now live in age of multiple bubbles, with the Federal Reserve at the center, blowing each with vigor.

    This inevitably will end painfully, as every prior bubble era has. But along the way, the more massive the distortions become, the greater the injustice between rich and poor becomes, and the more damage will ultimately follow.

    And, slowly but surely, more and more people are waking up to the reality that the Fed’s serial addiction to blowing bubbles is actually the cause of many of today’s problems, not the cure as it would have us believe.

    Will Your Retirement Efforts Achieve Escape Velocity?

    Sadly, most of us will outlive our savings.
    by Adam Taggart

    Friday, November 2, 2018, 11:41 PM


    The concept of ‘retirement’, of enjoying decades of work-free leisure in your golden years, is a relatively new construct. It’s only been around for a few generations.

    In fact, the current version of the relaxed, golfing/RV-touring/country club retirement lifestyle only came into being in the post-WW2 boom era — as Social Security, corporate & government pensions, cheap and plentiful energy, and extended lifespans made it possible for the masses.

    But increasingly, it looks like the dream of retiring is fast falling out of reach for many of today’s Baby Boomers. Most will outlive their savings (if they have any at all).

    Will you?
