The dollar (UUP, UND) could be entering the end of a 10-year downtrend, says Nomura's Jens Nordvig. We've gotten used to the greenback rallying during panics, but of late the dollar's headed higher for maybe other reasons - better relative economic performance, an improving trade deficit, even a smaller budget shortfall. "This is the type of shift that is just starting," he says. "It can be a multi-year phenomenon."

  • only sustainable if the Washington Consensus goes to Washington. This is the "lowest common denominator of policy advice" being addressed by the Washington-based institutions to Latin American countries in 1989:
    •Fiscal discipline
    •A redirection of public expenditure priorities toward fields offering both high economic returns and the potential to improve income distribution, such as primary health care, primary education, and infrastructure
    •Tax reform (to lower marginal rates and broaden the tax base)
    •Interest rate liberalization
    •A competitive exchange rate
    •Trade liberalization
    •Liberalization of inflows of foreign direct investment
    •Deregulation (to abolish barriers to entry and exit)
    •Secure property rights

  • Yep, a little bit more of fiscal discipline and less wars would be beneficial.
