EU-Bashing: An Alternative to Trump-Bashing

As readers know, I am a huge fan of equality.

This week especially, since there has been mostly nothing but a parade of Trump bashing on the mainstream media and it’s been old since the election which the die-hards on the left can seem to accept they lost.

But there are other targets for the public’s ire worldwide, and this morning we line up some of the going-on in the European Union which has been enjoying something of a free pass with Trump being the press lightning rod of late.

But that ends this morning after a few headlines and our charts on where the market goes next…

Mexico Wall-ternatives

With the Trump administration signing off on the Wall with Mexico this morning, we look at the problems of Mexico more broadly this morning.

While the Wall is certainly a short-term solution, it seems to us that a tighter wall will simply increase the narco-collapse of Mexico.  I expect within five years or less, we will see a full-on narco-revolution in Mexico and that holds both social and economic implications for the U.S.

MMT: Have You Been Hoaxed?

We were talking about Recipes this week in our Millennial’s Missing Manual (Coping section Thursday) and we have a dandy discussion this morning of Modern Monetary Theory and how it works and what does it mean.

The short answer is:  Formulas cloud thinking.  But it’s a kind of turf war between the math-leaning quants on the one hand with the more clear-headed behavioral economics believers on the other.

Bottom line is “What we all believe about the future tends to manifest” but there are some interesting :reasons why” in MMT which are worth talking about…

2017’s Personal Economic Stars To Steer By

Although we’re fairly sure that the all-time market peak will arrive as early as March or as late at September, there are certain “stars” we can steer by.

We look at Housing, Gold, and Bitcoin prices this morning and make some observations about where these could head, and in turn, may drag the rest of the economy along with ’em.
