    The global financial system and economy are a house or cards.  Built on an unsustainable underpinning to ever-increasing debt the financial system is, as far as I am concerned, irretrievably insolvent.

    To truly grasp this you need to understand the basics of banking and currency (what we call money, but really isn’t because it doesn’t satisfy all three necessary preconditions to be called such).  This is briefly covered in this episode.

    Market Commentary This was Fed Meeting Week – for those who have been distracted by “covid”, the Fed has been hinting about maybe-possibly-tapering their money-printing spree because, maybe, inflation is kinda-sorta starting to become a thing. Finally. To their great relief. Inflation! Yay!! Ok well sure, inflation sucks if you’re a wage-earner, or on a…

    Market Commentary There were three major economic series released this week: Retail Sales [+0.71% m/m], Industrial Production [+0.40% m/m], and CPI [+0.27% m/m]. The CPI was just a bad joke; it is up +4.38% y/y, with PPIACO up +16.16%. Someone should complain to the Trusted News Initiative gang that the harmful disinformation coming from the…

    Market Commentary It is time once again for PPIACO – the old-style Producer Price Index dating back to 1913!  Indexes aren’t so useful, unless they are translated into “percent change year-over-year”.  As with last month, PPIACO y/y change remains around 20%, which is the largest move since Nixon was in the White House, a few…

    Commentary Producer prices (PPIACO) looked unpleasant for July; +1.18% m/m, +19.79% y/y. That’s the largest increase since 1973-74. But don’t worry; Powell tells us it is transitory. It was transitory back in the 70s too – but the “transition period” lasted about 8 years, resulting in prices jumping from PPIACO=40 to PPIACO=100. Now that’s the…

    Inflation and Shortages Flashing Red

    Who you going to trust? Jay Powell or my lying charts?

    How I’m changing my actions in light of inflation and shortages

    My definition of an ALERT is when I encounter information that changes my actions.  I am now personally accelerating purchases, especially of mission-critical computer and other chip-based equipment.  I am now at a point where my farming needs and other household purchases are going to be accelerated based on the constellation of shortages that are now apparent.
