  1. The Euro for Month-End April 2017 Google’s New Flying Car & the Future Could Be So Much Britighter The Confidence Game – The Next Crisis
  2. Another thread from GHPC that is worth keeping. IMO, his economic history knowledge and cycle work makes compulsive reading. link From his latest article:
  3. Italy to Raise Taxes to Satisfy Brussels – Why the Euro Will Fail The Gold Reports & the Building of Volatility the Precursor to Chaos Trump Keeps His Pledge on Tax Reform
  4. Le Pen Seeks to Broaden Her Support London Property Crashed 40% Thanks to Tax Increase Does Schäuble want Draghi to Exit the Stage Once & For All?
  5. I still can't get past justifying the upfront costs, let alone the real life expectancy of the batteries.
  6. The Fate of the Euro If US Election Were Held today – Trump Would Get More Votes Polls Show The French ZDF2 TV Interview of Armstrong
  7. another contender entering the market. Mercedes energy storage units headed for UK homes
  8. Only predicted that the winner would be anti-establishment. Both Macron and La Pen qualify as both main parties failed to make it to the final. The same would apply to Trump as he is non establishment, though he used the Republicans to get into power. Also applies to Brexit.
  9. The French Elections & Socrates
  10. High house prices and record debt levels. Governments can print all they like, but eventually like banana republics, but who will accept it. The US gets away with it because they have the world reserve currency. The rest are not so lucky.
  11. It would not be appropriate because the RBA's loose policy exacerbated the problem. Eventually they will face the music due to some event that the government/RBA will not control. It could be Armstrong's expectation of bankrupt governments or some other event. The pendulum will eventually swing the other way.
  12. Would not surprise me. When the RE bubble pops, it would also not surprise me for ZIRP to be introduced to save mortgagees (and the banks). The $A should take a swan dive as well.
  13. The RBA heavily influences the OCR, which is influenced based on a cooked CPI that only reflects about 50% of the true inflation rate. The RBA can take large blame for the RE speculation (the rest of the blame is due to the government's fiscal policy) Traditionally officially interest rates would average around 6-8%.
  14. an interest rate set by market supply & demand. That applies to deposits, loans.
  15. A $20 Gold Coin that Saved a Life
  16. Looks like reality has caught up with Crooked Hillary Donald Trump voters don't have buyer's remorse, but some Hillary Clinton voters do
  17. This could be interesting! Mike Flynn Offers to Testify in Exchange for Immunity
  18. A rate set by the market that correctly reflects the cost of money, instead of one artificially depressed by central banks, causing distortions that will only bite harder later.
  19. From what I understand, they already have a considerable force available, including lots of helicopters.
  20. There is a point where lowering IR has no impact as witnessed by the ZIRP & NIRP that has been applied by various countries. It boils down to opportunities that offer a ROI, which would be best implemented by a competent fiscal policy. In the meantime, those on fixed income keep depressing the economy via reduced spending,
  21. French Election – No Surprise – Or Is There?
  22. The wall can be more efficiently built using laser technology.
