    By on April 22, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    The central bank high is euphoric, the crash and burn equally epic. Just out of curiosity, I called up a few charts of key markets: stocks (the S&P 500), volatility (VIX), gold and the U.S. dollar (UUP, an exchange-traded fund for the dollar).

    Via this Bloomberg story on Friday by Noah Smith come the two charts below that help to explain why the nation’s student loan mess (that continues to slowly spiral out of control despite pleas from indebted students) will not likely see any substantive reform efforts. Granted, the lower chart is ...

    With “tax day” now firmly behind us, it is expected that 2015 will show a record level of tax collections. This is a good thing, right? Maybe not. Over the weekend, an economist friend of mine sent me an interesting piece of analysis discussing the record level of tax receipts as a perc...

    The US Treasury reported last week that in February Japan moved ahead of China and resumed its position as the largest foreign creditor of the US government, a position last held by Japan in 2008.

  • Is The Credibility Bubble Bursting?
    By on April 21, 2015 | No Comments  Comments
    In a fiat currency system, perception is, by definition, everything. Paper money has no intrinsic value. So the people saving it and accepting it in exchange aren’t expressing faith in the money itself but in the competence and honesty — and power — of the institutions managing it. Let that fa...

    I think it was almost two years ago that I was in Cyprus. Cyprus had just come through its crisis and was still in shell shock. I was there to get a feel for what it was like, and a number of my readers had courteously arranged for me to meet with all sorts of people and do a few presentations. A lo...

    From Bloomberg comes word that credit managers for American companies are getting a little worried about debts going unpaid somewhere down the line, that is, when things might not be so hunky dory in the U.S. and global economy and the Fed is raising rates.
