[KR1016] Keiser Report: Unhappy Outlook for Chinese New Year

We discuss the unhappy outlook for the Chinese New Year as liquidity and currency fears loom. We also discuss fake bonds and short selling. In the second half, Max continues his interview with Constantin Gurdgiev of macroview.eu about the global macroeconomic picture in 2017.

ps – sorry for the delay posting, was traveling and then got caught in snowstorm. 😀

    Why hasn’t ronron died of old age yet? He speaks as if he has been here since before Al Gore even invented internet. Did you know that Al Gore and Hillary eat babies and that they could very well be older than the sun, the moon and the stars?

    It’s true.

    Are Social Media’s “Ads For Eyeballs” Valuations About To Be Eviscerated? http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-01-08/are-social-medias-ads-eyeballs-valuations-about-be-eviscerated

    Key is to get inside a persons head i.c. Evan Williams to fully understand the decisions he made. Williams is not some newbie hungry for advertising dollars. He’s seen that done that also taking into account his impressive resume. So it has nothing to do with the ‘ads for eyeballs’ model in general but more what it leads to if you let it run amok. The same as if you let a large group of people decide what to eat every day this unavoidable will lead to eating hamburgers and fries every day. And that’s exactly what Evan Williams doesn’t like: “The current system causes increasing amounts of misinformation…and pressure to put out more content more cheaply—depth, originality, or quality be damned. It’s unsustainable and unsatisfying for producers and consumers alike…. We need a new model.” (Strange that this essential quote from Evan Willams is not in the piece above?)

    An other article on the subject from Daniel Roberts on Yahoo Finance*** makes this point clear: “There may be a sweet spot for putting ads against original content, but Medium wasn’t finding it. Case in point: the site is rife with “blog posts” written by non-journalists that are actually thinly veiled plugs for a product or app, but aren’t marked as ads or sponsored content.

    With all of its many pivots, it became less clear over time what exactly Medium is for. The site has smart, longform essays on film and cinema, emotional personal stories that go viral, but also corporate blog posts (here’s a bizarre one from Slack to Microsoft when Microsoft launched a Slack competitor), promotional posts shilling new apps, and marketing tips from social media “experts” plugging their own achievements. What is Medium’s brand identity? Everything, and thus, nothing.

    It is a Wild West of content.”

    What Evan Williams wants is:“… defining a new model for writers and creators to be rewarded, based on the value they’re creating for people. And toward building a transformational product for curious humans who want to get smarter about the world every day.

    It is too soon to say exactly what this will look like. This strategy is more focused but also less proven. It will require time to get it right, as well as some different skills.”

    Because Evan Williams needs time to develop this he made these radical decisions, for the casual observer, but if you follow his thinking more carefully it makes sense.

    I lay on bed whole day now to save energy so that I can safe on food to buy my smoke. I pay Euro €9.30 ($9.80) for 50 grams of Drum tobacco now. The government is working to get us on heroin soon if they go on with these price increases.

    But what does @28 cad per 200 mean? 28 Canadian dollar for 200 grams?

  17. Youri Carma says:


    And laying on bed all day with heroin is much easier than being an honest smoker.

    What Is The Real Purpose Of The Gold Futures Market?
    Smaul gld – Jan 8, 2017

  22. YoLithos says:

    In some areas in China tenants could buy and sell tenures separate from the land tenanted. As a ‘derivative’ of it. And betting was very well known. As well as countersigning. They had many non-contractual, social, means of achieving the same ends.

    Hundreds of years ago. And debts to be settled in another reincarnation are said to have been mor or less well well known, during a certain period.

    Making the transition to external and ‘impersonal’ obligations in ‘modernity’ is probably less intractable than outside observers might realize. It does seem have something capable of being worked with.

  23. YoLithos says:

    Shouldn’t Zen while navigating words will escape roam and collide in the void.

  24. YoLithos says:

    The preponderance of Theory, in economics, peaked in the 1980’s?
    That brings to mind Varoufakis quoting Kenneth Arrow, when he was trying to explain an equation and someone who interrupted with a question on applied economics was told not to confuse that which was beautiful with that which was practical, because doing so would resuult in catastrophe. Enter corporate politicians, stage left, laughing horribly.

    “…a privacy law expert at Schillings, a UK-based law firm, rewrote Instagram’s terms of service in child-friendly language…” :

    Excellent /. snippet, in full :
    “Highlighted are the changes the lawyer has made:
    Officially you own any original pictures and videos you post, but we are allowed to use them, and we can let others use them as well, anywhere around the world. Other people might pay us to use them and we will not pay you for that. […] We may keep, use and share your personal information with companies connected with Instagram. This information includes your name, email address, school, where you live, pictures, phone number, your likes and dislikes, where you go, who your friends are, how often you use Instagram, and any other personal information we find such as your birthday or who you are chatting with, including in private messages (DMs). […] We might send you adverts connected to your interests which we are monitoring. You cannot stop us doing this and it will not always be obvious that it is an advert.”

    The vernacular “Own you (bleep)” is much more concise, but lacks the numbing slow dripping of drumming it in that the Brits are even more famous for than the Yanks.

    For Bill Gross, This Is The Only Thing That Matters For The Market Right Now http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-01-10/bill-gross-only-thing-matters-market-right-now

    Specifically, he is focusing on what he thinks is the critical resistance level of the 10Y yield, which will set the tone for virtually every other asset class, from stocks, to FX and, of course, to rates.

    If 2.60% is broken on the upside – if yields move higher than 2.60% – a secular bear bond market has begun. Watch the 2.6% level. Much more important than Dow 20,000. Much more important than $60-a-barrel oil. Much more important that the Dollar/Euro parity at 1.00. It is the key to interest rate levels and perhaps stock price levels in 2017.

The dictator needed to be overthrown without destroying the colony itself. According to the author of the BBC article published on June 22, Richard Hollingham, the meeting brought together 30 prominent scientists, engineers and philosophers who took their “task seriously,” only “two short blocks from the London headquarters of Britain’s security service, MI6”…’

    World Bank forecasts moderate growth for world economy in 2017

    The World Bank expects the global economy to post moderate growth of 2.7% percent this year. That’s a slight downward revision from the bank’s previous forecast in June when it was 2.8%,.. but it’s markedly better than last year’s 2.3% growth, one of the worst performance reports since the 2008 financial crisis.

    The World Bank attributes the moderate pickup from last year to the recovery of oil and commodity prices. But the bank cites uncertainties on future economic policies,… with concerns over the unpredictability of U.S. President-elect Donald Trump as well as Britain’s plans to leave the EU.

    The World Bank says developed economies will do better than last year, posting 1.8% growth. The U.S. forecast is 2.2% percent and China’s is 6.5%.
