    Could be:
    Investors found a better yield elsewhere.

  • ADP: Employment growth slowdown continues [View news story]
    This requires the creation of even more debt. we have backed ourselves into a corner. I dont disagree that all the projects you mention need to be done. The issue is the infrastructure is very inefficient and overly large. More infrastructure requires more money/debt. Really what needs to happen is take a city like Detroit, demo it and start over with much more space efficient living, compact and highly efficient infrastructure.
    Pointing a finger at political parties is a waste. Ultimately their policies are the same, only their social agenda is different. Government policy and taxation is the biggest killer of small biz ( the backbone of the country). Both parties are responsible. Frankly political parties should be done away with. They are epically divisive and only serve themselves and not the people they supposedly represent.

  • ADP: Employment growth slowdown continues [View news story]
    Problem is the economy is fueled by debt creation. Velocity of money continues to decline. This is not a healthy combination.

    Most of the worker growth has been in the 55+ crowd with the 25-54 lagging badly.

  • The Punk March Jobs Report Looks Primarily Like An Oil Patch Story [View article]
    Actually might want to look at the age breakout of job gainers and loosers. 25-54 -63k. Over 55 +300k. Since the recession, retirees have been the largest job gainers but quite a magnitude. This suggests current new crop of workers do not have the job skills required and/or retirees are coming out of retirement due to financial strains.

  • A Month To Forget For The Gold Miners [View article]
    Global X $GGGG is liquidating its fund. The low price most likely is shutting down the more expensive mines. Look for this trend to continue, which could cause a squeeze on the supply side as Asia/India seem to still have high demand.
