Very disturbing charts show sales are declining just as Trump is losing the trade war. That loss will magnify USA auto sales failure going forward.

Monetary Metals On Keynes, Inflation And Evil Itself

And your friend Keith did not even mention that a little inflation was a byproduct of a noble goal, which was full employment. Keynes wanted people to work. The problem is that so much money moves to the top that it causes asset inflation as that money buys up all levels of real estate.

Yes, I see that. I just see backlash to the trends everywhere. From Yellow Vests to weakness in the Democrats. I hope they eliminate Trump, but once they do the focus will be on them. If they stray from the center and go left they will be crushed again.

Bonds are gold, or like money when used as collateral. The use of bonds as collateral in a massive way makes them far more valuable than just as bonds.

Interesting read for sure! But Huawei has been suspected with no proof by our pitiful government. What a bunch of clowns. Also, it appears that Greenspan got what he wanted from financialization, too big to fail banks insulated as best as he could by counterparty and clearinghouse risk. Diabolical, perhaps, but genius in creating the new normal. Only way out as Kyle Bass has said, is helicopter money. Maybe the Chinese need a little helicopter money too. They can do more since they are not confined by Basel rules.

On my blog I discuss the past housing bubble, the crash and future housing bubbles and scams. Offering easy money loans should be against the law but is not. Selling bogus AAA rated bonds should have been prosecuted but the scheme came from the bankers at Basel 2. You can't go higher than that.
