Girding for Confrontation
On May 30th, Secretary of Defense James Mattis announced a momentous shift in American global strategic policy. From now on, he decreed, the U.S. Pacific Command (PACOM), which oversees all U.S. military forces in Asia, will be called the Indo-Pacific Command (INDOPACOM). The name change, Mattis explained, reflects “the increasing connectivity between the Indian and Pacific Oceans,” as well as Washington’s determination to remain the dominant power in both. What? You didn’t hear about this anywhere?  And even now, you’re not exactly blown away, right? Well, such a name change may not sound like much, but someday you may look back and...

Can the FBI Be Independent?
When President Donald Trump appointed Atlanta lawyer Christopher Wray to succeed James Comey as the director of the FBI, my initial reaction was not positive. Wray is a veteran of the Department of Justice and is part of that good-old-boy DOJ network that knows how to protect its own. Indeed, when then-New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a former U.S. attorney, needed a good criminal defense lawyer — whose millions in fees were paid by New Jersey taxpayers — he hired Wray. Christie was never indicted in the Bridgegate scandal, but defense counsel for those who were sought Christie’s cellphone to...

BofA: 40% Of Margin Expansion In The Last 20 Years Is From Globalization
Roughly around the time David Rosenberg "calculated" the contribution of the Fed's unprecedented monetary policy on the S&P (which he estimated at roughly 1,000 points, which is about half of what Albert Edwards believes the Fed "added" to the stock market), Bank of America was out with an analysis, this time looking at the contribution "globalization" has had on global corporate margins. The reason: an attempt to handicap the potential risks from all-out trade war which leads to the unwind of "globalization", by which we assume the bank refers to global supply chains, JIT procurement, lower wages for US-based workers,...

Inflation Fears Spike To 30 Year Highs
Hidden deep in the narrative-busting Philly Fed survey plunge this morning was an alarming data point that may better explain the slump in stocks than mere disappointing headlines would suggest. While Prices Paid and Prices Received both rose modestly (even as New Orders and Backlogs plunged), it appears Trump Trade Tariffs have sparked a Daimler-esque response in the business-people of Philadelphia who are now more worried about inflation in the next 6 months than at any time since 1988 (shooting up a whopping 23 points to 56.6)... But what the chart says is more concerning for the average joe as this is...

Postliterate America
I was just interviewed by two Temple journalism students, Amelia Burns and Erin Moran, and though they appeared very bright and enterprising, with Erin already landing a job that pays all her bills, I feel for these young ladies, for this is a horrible time to make and sell words, of any kind, and the situation will only get worse. We’re well into postliteracy. With widespread screen addiction, hardly anyone buys books or newspapers anymore. My local newspaper, the Philadelphia Inquirer (Inky), no longer has a book review section. Its retired editor, Frank Wilson, was never replaced. Frank had three...

Olie inkoopclub
India, China, Japan en Zuid Korea zijn voornemens om een inkoopcombinatie voor olie te vormen. Dat geeft een goed tegenwicht voor de OPEC en kan gelijk meer ruwe olie uit de VS naar Azië laten stromen. Dat initiatief kwam van India’s Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan tijdens de IEF conferentie. IEF staat voor het International Energy […]

Zonne-energie: donkere wolken.
Dat de overheid onbetrouwbaar was wisten we hier al, maar als u nog een voorbeeld wilt, dat van zonne-energie is weer zo’n ‘mooie’. Wiebes vindt de huidige regeling te riant, lees te duur, dus wordt de regeling aangepast.Terwijl mensen zonnepanelen plaatsten op basis van een berekening voor de komende 20 jaar, worden na een paar […]

E-Verify Threatens Us All
By: Ron PaulIn addition to funding for a border wall and other border security measures, immigration hardliners are sure to push to include mandatory E-Verify in any immigration legislation considered by Congress. E-Verify is a (currently) voluntary program where businesses check job applicants’ Social Security numbers and other Information — potentially including “biometric” identifiers like fingerprints — against information stored in a federal database to determine if the job applicants are legally in the United States.Imagine how much time would be diverted from serving consumers and growing the economy if every US business had to comply with E-Verify. Also, collecting...

Remembering Burt Blumert
By: David GordonToday would have been the 89th birthday of Burt Blumert, one of the greatest personalities of the modern libertarian movement. Burt was the indispensable man behind the scenes and was a key figure in the Mises Institute, the Center for Libertarian Studies, and LewRockwell.com. He was one of Murray Rothbard’s closest friends; and when you met him, it was easy to see why Murray liked him. He was a genial and kind person and a source of wise counsel to all those fortunate to know him. Burt was the founder of Camino Coins and a principal figure in...

Mark Thornton: Is the Bust Here?
By: Mark Thornton, Jeff DeistWith stock markets in turmoil earlier this week, the Mises Institute's resident expert on booms and busts joins Jeff Deist to make sense of it. Will new Fed Chair Jerome Powell do everything possible to prop up markets, or will he be more hawkish than Janet Yellen? What kinds of indicators does Mark look for to predict trouble (hint: it's not the VIX). Why does the volume of margin loans matter, and why is the Russell 2000 Index a better predictor than the Dow or Nasdaq? Are cryptocurrencies now bound up with macro trends? And is Austrian...
