re: Discussion of Fed Liquidity’s Impact on Equity Markets - RedStickBR
Got through this Steven Van Metre interview on Real Vision this morning. For anyone who wants to understand how QE impacts liquidity, this is a must listen. It's also available on Spotify. The conversation beginning around the 20 minute mark is very enlightening in terms of clarifying that QE doesn'...

re: You leftists are voting for a man that sold out Your country for personal profit. - RedStickBR
At some point, Obama’s gotta start worrying about the additional damage to his legacy this guy could cause. Although I guess even Biden isn’t as damaging as Trump taking a sledgehammer to Obama’s beloved EOs...

re: Discussion of Fed Liquidity’s Impact on Equity Markets - RedStickBR
Damn, you're exactly right. We didn't delever after the Great Recession, which is when Debt-to-GDP breached 65% and also when we entered the "new normal" of sub-3% annual real GDP growth. And then in 2010/2011, we breached the 90% mark, which is when Dr. Hunt says things really become acute. Current...

Had been meaning to read Irving Fisher's [i][link=(https://fraser.stlouisfed.org/files/docs/meltzer/fisdeb33.pdf)]The Debt-Deflation Theory of Great Depressions[/link][/i] for a while. Finally got around to it. The paper is written as a "creed" containing 49 "articles" around what causes depressions...

re: Depressing thought about our national debt - RedStickBR
[quote]We don’t have to pay it off like that. We just have to stop increasing it - or really just have to get the economy to increase faster than the debt. In time inflation will make the debt effectively less and less. [/quote] Two problems: 1) Excessive government debt crowds out private ...

That is interesting, mostly because there's no way our grid could handle it. Ground zero of the "rapidly decarbonize + flood the market with renewables" right now is Australia, who has the distinction of having some of the highest electricity prices in the world, which have increased by a few hundre...

re: Discussion of Fed Liquidity’s Impact on Equity Markets - RedStickBR
I started the Van Metre podcast today from his recent appearance on Real Vision and his theory is that the Fed knows it can’t create inflation, but is just trying to scare people into spending more instead of saving. Think about how brutally dishonest that is. I’m not a Fed hater, but their credibil...

And she’s tied in with a family known for nonpartisanship. You know, the Soros’, who you can bet would never let their liberal activism lead to something like, oh, censorship of conservatives. https://www.pdsoros.org/meet-the-fellows/anna-makanju...
