Skulderna i världen har aldrig varit så höga som de är idag samtidigt som man trycker pengar för att hålla systemet igång. Guld och silver har varit en del av det monetära systemet under flera tusen år. De senaste dryga 40 åren har man dock valt att lämna dessa ädelmetaller utanför och det har medfört ökade skulder och ett ohållbart system.

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max and Stacy discuss the absence of significant wage growth in the face of massive shareholder dividends and stock buybacks following tax cuts. They also discuss the report suggesting that U.S. spending may actually be twice as high as reported. In the second half, Max interviews Mitch Feierstein of about his charts! The Fed’s balance sheet continues to look very big; the velocity of money continues to grind to a halt; and, yet, the prices for houses and stocks continue to soar.




Turkiet tar hem guldet från US Fed och fortsätter att köpa guld som sina nära vänner Ryssland

Publicerad 2018-04-23 10:14:00 i Ekonomi,

Ankara has decided to bring back all its gold stored in the US Federal Reserve, according to Turkish media. In recent years, Turkey repatriated 220 tons of gold from abroad, and 28.7 tons was brought back from the US last year.

Turkey’s gold reserves are estimated at 564 tons and are worth about $20 billion, Turkish newspaper Yeni Safak reported. This makes Ankara the 11th largest gold holder, behind the Netherlands and ahead of India. The reports come at a time when Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has taken a tough stance against the US currency.

Det är inte mycket som gått rätt för FEDs monetära politik sedan finans krisen

The Federal Reserve has been determined to create “Wealth Effects” throughout the economy since 2008, which has left the majority of Main Street on the sidelines.

The Fed’s objective was to make American households feel wealthier by pushing up the valuations of stocks and bonds. However, this paper wealth mentality has worked beautifully for Wall Street and the 1% but has destroyed much of the middle class as wealth inequality continues to skyrocket.

In fact, former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan has gone on record to warn of a massive bond and stock bubble thanks to historic low-interest rates. I guess, the idea of rising paper wealth to drive a wave of renewed borrowing and spending hasn’t quite worked out as planned.

It shows the percent of companies in the S&P 500 that would fall into Minsky’s “Ponzi unit” category. Specifically, Bianco Research defines these “zombies” as companies whose interest expense is greater than their 3-year average EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes). Currently, we face the greatest percentage of “Ponzi units” in at least 20 years.

Russia's 5Y CDS exploded by the most since June 2013 (a 34% spike in default risk in 3 days) this week as US sanctions and now direct threats have escalated geopolitical tensions globally.

As Bloomberg notes, President Donald Trump’s warning for Russia to “get ready” for missiles on Syria sent investors rushing for protection.

The cost of insuring sovereign debt against default for five years using credit-default swaps jumped to 162 on Wednesday, the highest since Aug. 1.

DiMartino Booth syn på FEDs tankar om inflationen

Publicerad 2018-04-09 16:47:14 i Ekonomi,

It is imperative that Powell get his Committee on board with recognizing that inflation is an immediate threat before it’s too late, which is not yet the case. Focus in on the blue line which is barely above the Fed’s 2% target.

That represents nondiscretionary inflation – the prices of what you have to buy to put food on the table, stay healthy and keep the roof over your head. The green line is inflation for what you want – another pair of red-soled shoes, a bigger curved-screen TV, tickets to the Final Four – you know, discretionary spending.

In recessionary times, the prices for what you need completely disconnect from the prices of what you want – that’s why they are miserable times for the economy.

It’s no secret that home prices are choking off buyers though rising mortgage rates are doing a bang-up job of getting the hesitant to rush to buy. Applications to buy a home are at a seven-year high even as home prices are up 5.9%, triple the rate of inflation. That helps explain why first-time homebuyers made up all of 29% of buyers in February, a level disturbingly close to the cycle’s 26% record low.

Danielle’s concusion: “If the sensible man in Powell has no wish to ever allow interest rates to fall to the zero bound on his watch, he might want to get the fed funds rate above 2% before the economy hits recession.”

Her conclusion that the Fed will be out of bullets at the next recession makes sense to me. The last time the Fed was out of bullets was last cycle, after 5 1/2% of cuts. It did three rounds of QE and one Operation Twist.

What the Fed does to counteract the next recession is anyone’s guess.

Tyska exporten droppar

Publicerad 2018-04-09 12:12:22 i Ekonomi,

BERLIN (Reuters) - German exports plunged unexpectedly in February, posting their biggest monthly drop in 2-1/2 years and narrowing the trade surplus, data showed on Monday, in a further sign that growth in Europe’s biggest economy could have reached its peak.

Seasonally adjusted exports fell by 3.2 percent on the month, the steepest decline since August 2015, data from the Federal Statistics Office showed. Imports dropped by 1.3 percent.

A Reuters poll had pointed to exports edging up by 0.2 percent on the month and imports rising by 0.3 percent.

“As it looks, we have surpassed the top of the economic upswing,” HSBC Trinkhaus analyst Lothar Hessler said, adding that the stronger euro was probably to blame for the weak export figures.

“The German economy will continue to grow, but with less momentum,” Hessler said.

Japanese investors dump record amount of U.S. bonds in February

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese investors sold a record amount of U.S. dollar bonds in February as the soaring cost of currency-hedging undercut yields while they extended their purchases of euro-denominated bonds, government data showed on Monday.

Investors sold 3.924 trillion yen ($36.68 billion) of U.S. dollar bonds in February but scooped up 1.059 trillion yen (8.06 billion euros) of euro-denominated bonds - which offer higher yields after currency hedging.

It was their fifth consecutive month of euro-denominated debt purchases.

Since October, investors offloaded 7.675 trillion yen ($71.72 billion) of dollar bonds and bought 4.079 trillion yen (31.06 billion euros) of euro bonds.




Handelsbalansen för USA visar högre underskott än väntat vilket ökar risken för tullar och andra pålagor

With so much attention focused on trade data in recent weeks, Trump will hardly be happy to learn that not only did the US trade deficit grow by 1.6% in February from $56.7BN to $57.6BN, missing expectations of a $56.8BN print, but was the highest monthly trade deficit going back ten years to 2008.


Finally, if you want to get Trump really mad, tell him that when stripping away petroleum products - which recently saw record US exports thanks to shale - the US trade deficit has never been greater.
