Ukrainians tear up military writs

Stacy Summary: Interesting. Found this via Twitter. Don’t know where it was recorded or if English subtitles are correct (anyone speak Ukrainian?). Anyway, as always, it seems the ordinary citizen does not want the wars the elite fight.

[KR533] Keiser Report: Casino Gulag

We discuss the nouns, like ‘the poor,’ who want to be known as verbs, like ‘can’t make ends meet,’ and the thieving verbs (i.e., ‘defrauding investors,’ ‘manipulating markets’) who want to be called nouns, like ‘wealth creator.’ In the second half, Max interviews Liam Halligan about his recent Spectator cover story, “The Next Crash: We could be on the brink of another financial crisis.” They look at derivatives, leverage, GDP and more.

[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.

Gold, crude oil, hogs, coffee or condos?

What would you guess has performed best over the past 10 years?

Hogs?

hog

Manhattan condos?

Or gold?

If you only read the mainstream blogosphere and financial news, you’d be forgiven for thinking your cognitive bias had destroyed your returns on gold and that, in fact, you’re down or have performed the worst of all asset classes. When, in fact:

In terms of returns, gold topped the list with a compound annual growth rate of 12.91% over the past 10 years. West Texas Intermediate crude-oil futures came in second, rising 11.02% annually; coffee rose 9% over the 10-year period, and hog futures rose 5.34%.

By comparison, the S&P 500 stock-market index saw a 5.56% compound annual growth rate over the past 10 years.

Oh, and that Manhattan condo?

Meanwhile, those who invested in Manhattan residential real estate 10 years ago have seen values rise 6.5% over that time period

I’m not sure if that counts the property tax . . .
