    None of This Makes Any Sense

    The asset bubble has become 'Too Big to Burst'

    I have to confess, these are trying times for those of us trying to make sense of the markets from a fundamentals standpoint.  We are back in serious bubble territory, and during the heights of bubbles, all sorts of newly-minted rationalizations are bandied about as the new wisdom or a 'new normal'.

    I am simply amazed that we are in yet another massive bubble, so soon after the last ones, and that so few remember the lessons from those events.

    Destined to Fail – Magical Thinking at the G20

    by Chris Martenson

    The G20 meeting has revealed two important things that tell us something about our combined economic future.  First we learned that the US lost the battle to try to get everyone back on the Keynesian print-a-thon bandwagon.  This tells us something about US leadership in these troubled times.  Once upon a time, the US could dictate such things, but those days are apparently over (which deserves to be noted.)

    G20 Authorizes Global Printing of Money Out of Thin Air

    by Chris Martenson

    In a completely expected move, politicians from around the world gathered and made the decision to spend a lot of money that they didn’t have and which doesn’t exist (yet).

    I am referring to the recent G20 meeting, where the global crisis was the main topic. As you may know from my past writings, I hold it as a near dead-certainty that national politicians can be counted upon to spend instead of cut and to print instead of tax. It’s just natural to want to take the path of least resistance.

    If local politicians had a printing press, they’d print, too. But they don’t, and so they hike fees and taxes on things like roads, gasoline, fishing licenses, and building permits when things get tight.

    Printing money out of thin air is inflationary and unfair. It steals from savers and preferentially enriches those at the head of the handout line. It diminishes all the money accumulated from past production and inappropriately reinforces the belief that something can be had for nothing.

    So I was more than a little intrigued when I read about the $1.1 trillion pledged by world leaders to the IMF. Where did it come from? Who was donating what? As always, the devil is in the details.
