  • Screeching Economic Halt Underway In China?
    By on May 16, 2012 | 1 Comment1 Comment  Comments
    China bulls are in for a multi-year shock because rebalancing from an economy overly dependent on exports is going to be far more painful, and last much longer than most think. Data is coming in much weaker than expected, but I propose this is only the very beginning. The New York Times reports D...
  • Retail Sales Under Pressure!
    By on May 16, 2012 | 2 Comments2 Comments  Comments
    Retail sales slowed sharply in April rising only 0.1 percent, following a 0.7 percent increase in March (originally up 0.8 percent).  No real surprise here but it is interesting to see retailers beginning to show signs of strain in recent earnings’ reports. The concern continues to be the pr...

    When the first estimate of Q1 GDP was released we wrote: “Given the impact from higher oil and gas prices on the economy, which is a real and pervasive tax on the consumer as discussed recently, it is highly likely that we will see downward revisions to Q1 GDP in the next two months.”...

  • Graphic Presentation: American Economic Demise
    By on May 15, 2012 | 1 Comment1 Comment  Comments
    The US employment numbers this month were disappointing. But disappointing does not begin to describe the situation I read about today in Europe. I have just finished up with my conference in Carlsbad, California and am getting back to the room late. I have to get up in a few hours (4 AM is rather o...
  • Sex, Money and Largesse!
    By on May 15, 2012 | 3 Comments3 Comments  Comments
    Sex and Money are probably two of the most powerful words in the English language.  First, those two words got you to look at this article.  They also sell products, books and services from“How To Have Better Sex” to “How To Make More Money” — ostensibly so you can ...
  • Debt Serfdom in One Chart.
    By on May 15, 2012 | 2 Comments2 Comments  Comments
    The essence of debt serfdom is debt rises to compensate for stagnant wages. I often speak of debt serfdom; here it is, captured in a single chart. The basic dynamics are all here, if you read between the lines: 1. Financialization of the U.S. and global economies diverts income to capital and those...

    The S&P 500 plunged at the open and hit its intraday low near the end of the first hour of trading, off 1.24%. There were no economic indicators to distract the markets from the ongoing Greek drama and JPMorgan’s travesty of professional trading. After a feeble attempt at recovery, the mar...
  • Gold Headed Down To $1,500 Or Worse?
    By on May 15, 2012 | 3 Comments3 Comments  Comments
    We remain on a sell signal for gold. Our signal was primarily due to deterioration of gold’s technicals, reversals of our momentum indicators (not shown), investor sentiment for gold at the time, the pattern of lower highs and lower lows, and so forth. But as usual, the fundamentals have caught u...
