  • Inflationary Forces and a Tectonic Crack in U.S. Treasuries [View article]
    Inflation? Who is getting a raise, who hasn't had their hours cut or days furloughed, who isn't paying more for health care, how many more are underemployed, out of a job, underwater with their house, credit card bills, who hasn't cut back on spending and who hasn't begun to save for the first time in decades or their life?

    Inflation? Deflation 14 trillion has vanished from the balance sheets of Americans and the govt could only come up with a measly 2 trillion and most of that is sitting on some banks balance sheet in govt bonds. The 30 yr govt bond is the buy of the century

  • What Is the Bond Market Trying to Tell Us? [View article]
    the bond market is telling us they are as foolish as ever. there is no inflation as far as the eye can see, and the feds can't print nearly enough money to keep up with wealth destruction, the only problem is i may be insolvent before the bond market wakes up.

  • Market Outlook: Watch Out, the Signs Can Be Deceiving [View article]
    what i can't figure out is whether or not the fed is going. to nationalize the accumulated mortgage debt on the balance sheets of the banking institutions in a final desperate maneuver to get credit flowing again. is this possible and if so will this produce real inflation not the kind where a shrinking monetary base is being shunted into balooning commodity prices?
