[KR632] Keiser Report: Dumb Money

A double header discussing the ‘dumb money’ piling into markets just as the Spectator’s cover story reads: “The Next Crash: We could be on the brink of another financial crisis.” We read through the piece in shock at the obvious signs of misallocation of wealth while chasing dumb bubbles – including a P/E ratio now at 25.6 compared to a historic norm of 16.5. In the second half, we examine more misallocation of wealth as the US spends an additional $1 trillion annually on healthcare compared to if they spent the same percentage of GDP as the next most expensive country, the Netherlands. While overspending by $1 trillion, the energy grid has the most blackouts of any developed nation and yet less than half a trillion could replace the dumb, old grid with a smart, new one.


Looks like UK has basically declared war on Russia (grabs popcorn)

The Case for a Bull or Bear Market in Two Charts

Which appears more likely–a straight-line extension of the past two years’ rise in stocks, or another “impossible” decline to complete the megaphone pattern?

There are dozens of charts and data points supporting the case for a continuation of the Bull market in stocks or a reversal into a Bear market. For the sake of brevity I’ve distilled the two arguments into two charts, one for the Bull case and one for the Bear case.

The Bull case is easy: the economy has reached self-sustaining expansion, a.k.a. escape velocity; hotel occupancy rates are high, home valuations are rising, stocks are fairly valued based on forward earnings, debt has been paid down/written off, and the Fed has tapered its quantitative easing (QE) bond and mortgage buying with no ill effect.

How Bad Can The Junk-Bond Sell-Off Get? So Bad It’ll Take Down Stocks

OK, let’s forgive Goldman for flip-flopping. At the peak of the bubble, trigger fingers are nervous, and flip-flopping is the norm. A week earlier, a Goldman strategist, in a very bullish mood at the time, raised his year-end target for the S&P 500 to 2,050. But that’s like so last week. Now Goldman’s strategy folks downgraded global stocks. And they gave a peculiar reason.

Finite Resources And The Geography of Conflict

eye-earth-red-57105757

Ukraine. Iraq. Nigeria. Libya. Tunisia. Syria. All are hotspots of conflict in different regions of the world, yet the same underlying cause behind each can clearly be seen when looking through the lens of finite resources.

In the end, all wars are resource wars.

Warning! Future, Lies Ahead

Correction…

Warning!  Future Lies, Ahead

If you like your future you can keep your future.  Bitcoin is headed to infinity and beyond New York or at least to the end of a 45 day comment period.  When it comes to the past (pre-existing political theory), we always have the blockchain for that.
