Ive paid close attention to it since I first heard about it 12 years or so ago, cause I figure it will be us one day.. doesn't hurt to have a clue about warning signs and after effects.

15 trillion is in negative yield. 

Bigger problem is housing.


So the worst part of malaria is the itchy mosquito bite...

What do you think inverted yields indicate? Could it be lenders restricting there risks and tightening loans?

Well, we just had nearly 2 years of the Feds offloading toxic assets back onto the market.

We learned nothing from 2008.

Well the president sure did. He has been tweeting for the fed to do more Quantative Easing.

Apparently the plan is just throw money at it and hopefully he can get past 2020 before anything drastic happens.

Because addressing the deficit is political suicide. It would require both parties working together due to the only solution being serious cuts in social spending.

Oh you were talking about Trump's trade policy.

Well that is in fact a socialist model. Much closer to Bernie Sanders than free market.

Yeah, but that doesn't make any sense. Protectionism isn't a socialist economic tenet.

In response to the rest of the world engaging in QE. Not saying it's the right approach, especially since there is no intent to curb spending from this administration other than regulatory cutting (drop in the bucket in many respects).

I think we will be LAST on the list of nations with a currency crisis but we are still on the list.

It sure is because of worker protection. It's far worse usually and is socialism for the winners the government is picking and paying for losses in the market through taxation and wealth redistribution. Also the idea of making unilaterally major economic policy changes is a liberal philosophy. It gives undue power to the executive branch for monetary policy. The bailout out for farmers that isn't even covered by the tariffs are also wealth redistribution.

Then you aren't good at math. We can watch Japan a bit and see how they do. Perhaps you can't understand the impact of our debt interest payments becoming more than a quarter of the yearly budget.

I'm very good at math.

You can watch Japan, I'm watching Australia and Europe and following their monetary policy. They continue to engage in QE to stimulate their economies.

Each of these governments are in different areas of these monetary cycles.

The US is still the world reserve currency. We can still export inflation for a while, and we can still offload toxic assets to the balance sheets of private banks.

We have a while to go before that starts to happen. I suggest you take this time to stock up on food, fuel, ammo, and buy some bitcoin.

Subsidizing isn't socialist. It is welfarism which is a product of capitalism.

You and I can argue about the validity of welfarism, but it will never be socialism.

We are not the worlds reserve currency. We are one of them and its 60 percent of the currency share.

This isn't subsidizing. Its market intervention with wealth redistribution for specific industries.

Also protectionism is usually part of the labor movement (socialist)

Well Japan has a large economy and the worst gdp to debt ratio in the world. We are closing in and rapidly climbing.

So as far as what QE does to the gdp dept whirlpool we are much further along and a very different situation with Australia.

from local Talk Radio guest speakers... our local property taxes are being Reduced by 17 Mills this tax year...'which should translate into a $35 reduction from the $2,367.oo... I was 'obliged' to turn over to the County Tax Collector last year.

when the economy goes hyper-inflationary... the assessed taxes to 'Pay' for the Privilege of staying in your mortgage free residence will excalate at the rate of your money being debased... like my $2.3K of now -> will be $6.66K the next year !


a half ounce of $12K Gold, that was hoarded by the prepper, would help him cross that hurdle... when there ain't no payrolls being had in the Trade/Barter economy of the Depression....
So you'd better clean them glasses your looking through that poo-poo's Gold as non-Edible hoarder/prepper resource & not worth stacking !
