Muckraker of the Financial System

I have published on two other prominent financial websites, (as Gary A) and at I muckrake the banking system and found premeditated causes for the housing bubble and subsequent meltdown. I am married with 4 grown children.

E Jim Cramer Slides To Dark Side On China Tariffs
The attempt to monitor China will turn out to be very damaging. If Trump is serious about this hard line, America will be the loser, as China is already losing and is making adjustments. We are in the first half, and a good coach makes adjustments.
E A GDPNow Chart Worth Watching
The chart is helpful as a current measurement, with no lag. How accurate it is going forward is important, because huge quarter upon quarter drops in investment could result in a recession.

Trade wars, even without arresting a key player like Meng, can contribute to all three results of economic shocks.
E Trump Blinked, The Fed Blinked And The Powell Put
There is nothing that Donald Trump can really do about Asian economic supremacy short of war. The Trilateral nations complain about lack of worker opportunity, meanwhile everyone who wants to work apparently is working in the USA.
E Are Policy 'Refugees' Jumping The Trump Tariff Ship?
Japan's Abe and Israel's Netanyahu have signaled more cooperation with China as both realize that Asia is where it's at economically.
E Trump Versus Powell: Who Is Right About Immigration?
Immigration is deeply related to Free Trade in judging the openness of a society. On that subject, Powell is very right and Trump is very wrong. Wage growth is still sub par, and the economy is hardly booming in a classic sense.

Update 2: Larry Kudlow says no official meeting was cancelled, but that was not the issue. The issue is that the US rejected a Chinese outreach. Add this to continuing threats to Huawei's Meng, and we will have little chance for a trade deal. China will throw Canada into a recessionary position to add to this world turmoil.

This scenario could happen, but, China has bounced back before. It signs onto the Eurodollar, but it doesn't sign on to Basel. It can rope a dope for a long time, wearing out the West. Time will tell.

IP theft is what this is all about. That is why it is unlikely that there will be any agreement and the world economy will tumble. I hope I am wrong, but only if Trump blinks.

Update: The US has halted trade negotiations over IP issues. It is clear that the US is not interested in negotiating with China on trade. The US is taking a hardball approach and wants to humiliate China. Jim Cramer sided with Tech leaders in Silicon Valley who he says want the US to hammer out IP concessions. I wrote this is a very dangerous policy on the part of the USA and that it goes against Cramer's understanding that trade wars are bad and that Wall Street doesn't want them. Interesting to see how Cramer interprets this latest US roadblock to free trade. I think Wall Street should wake up but it likely is looking for soothing words from Jim and also from the liar in chief who said a trade war was likely, knowing it isn't.

Nice pep talk. Key is how open we are going forward. Certainly Ahlsten was astute to point out that we still have immigration. But Trump is becoming an isolationist in many ways, including even legal immigration. The method of US success appears to be turned on its head by POTUS, so will we recover from it?

This is good so far. Rising wages without inflation is a good thing. The issue is, though, how much of a drag on the economy will automation and AI bring in a downturn.

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.
