• The Post-Market Economy - Part I: Chaos on Planet ZIRP - Eric Janszen


    Faith can overcome evidence but not forever.

    Two trends will be with us for the next 20 years:
    Inexorable Trend #1: Peak Cheap Credit
    Inexorable Trend #2: Peak Cheap Oil

    Within these two long term trends, the latest diversions

    Late gold investors on board since 2008 exit market as the USD again becomes GAGFO as Europe, Japan, and China falter

    A story that makes sense of the world, that puts it all together in logical order with a happy ending.

    The good and hard working, the brave, the smart, and the righteous, will prevail.

    “We” deserve to win, don’t we?

    Except those are not the rules on Planet ZIRP.

    I get this all the time. The questions.

    What’s with the stock market? Bonds? Housing? Gold?

    My answer: Do you really want to know? (read more...)

    Also, the fact that masks in Australia have recently been shipped to China, does not help either:

    Short term, agree. Longer term I think I could be right *if* (and that's a BIG if) any African countries can get their political act together to make the idea viable.
