A list of the obstacles he has had to endure from all sides. Don’t anyone ever again tell me how exceptionally ‘nice’ Americans are as a people… Even Reagan the simpleton, understood that you cannot borrow your way to prosperity. ECB considering dumping inconvenient rules surrounding its insolvent banking system… just like the Fed in 2008! A market ‘guru’. The housing bubble’s back. Making severe adjustments in real life. The pension nightmare: dead ahead. Litigation run amok. Millennials (rightly) hate boomers: boomers, watch out! Venezuela’s exodus stampede.
The antecedents of Trump’s “America First!” cry are deeply entangled with the darker aspects of American history. Evolution has its own way of evolving the size of the various species. Comey and the gang: a despicable story. More scandal from Wells Fargo. American men don’t work as much as they used to; some reasons for the decline. Not one out of the top 100 papers were opposed to Trump’s April 13 air strike on Syria, albeit with no evidence of Syrian involvement with the chemical strikes (if they even ever happened…)
A few more words about luck – financial luck… The lies surrounding the American attacks on Syria. Financial globalists will take advantage of the Syrian crisis. The absurdity of Netflix’s stock valuation. A series of “what-ifs”, to show the randomness of life. Predictions and how we make them. The history of taxes in the United States.
The attacks on Syria. The economy is growing but not American paychecks. Inconsistencies over the attacks and relations between the large powers. Religion in Malaysia. Shaming of kids in the U.S. More news on the U.S. auto industry. Commercial real estate prices are falling: some observations. Trade schools. James Comey’s new book.
London: some history as background for what will happen when Brexit becomes a reality in March, 2019. Federal government out-of-control spending. A word on Syria. The banks: at it again with sub-prime! Some observations about living abroad. The biggest swindle of the 20th century or, perhaps, ever. America’s right to attack a nation that has done it no harm.
Our ‘beliefs’ are more important than reality. The planet’s natural resources are shrinking. The population is growing. Make your own conclusions. Crude oil futures just opened for trading in Beijing. China is, after all, the world’s second-largest oil consumer. London just surpassed New York in murders (without guns). Moscow says relations with the west have never been worse. America is victimizing bona fide Russian businesses in the U.S. The future of storefront retailing as evidenced by New York City. Subprime auto loans. Financiers’ short memories! The reaction of the MSM when they (wrongly) thought the U.S. was leaving Syria: utter panic…
Why would Andrew McCabe succeed in attractive $400,000 in less than a day, despite his shady dealings? Banks are the linchpin between the current system and chaos. Debt forgiveness throughout history. The U.S. wants more personal information on visitors’ visa applications. A self-driving car conundrum. Loneliness and wisdom.
Examining the fate of each of the ‘FAANGS’. Not pretty. An army of illegal migrants in Mexico on their way to the U.S. The happiest country on earth. How overconfidence seeps into our experience. The concept of luck. Drilling down into Amazon’s iniquitous business model. Robot lawyers. Coffee is potentially deadly, according to California. N.Y. real estate. Recent action in the stock market.
