Economics Struggles to Cope With Reality (Bloomberg View)

There are basically four different activities that all go by the name of macroeconomics. But they actually have relatively little to do with each other. Understanding the differences between them is helpful for understanding why debates about the business cycle tend to be so confused.

Credit card debt could hit $1 trillion by the end of 2016 (Market Watch)

With the economy improving and driving up consumer confidence, many people are spending more but shirking basic responsibilities like paying their credit card bills. If things continue at this rate, U.S. households will accumulate $1 trillion in outstanding debt by the end of 2016, the most ever, according to a study by credit card search and comparison website, CardHub. But some experts say it isn’t yet a worrisome trend.

The rally in the Yuan from January through mid-March has mostly been erased.

If the yuan continues to sink, protectionists in the US will howl.

Included in the protectionist group are Donald Trump, president Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Bernie Sanders, to varying degrees. Trump is the leader of the protectionist group.

Yuan Falls Most in Two Months

Bloomberg reports Yuan Falls Most in Two Months as Trading Resumes After Holidays.

The yuan headed for its biggest loss in two months as the currency traded for the first time since Wednesday.

The yuan lost 0.4 percent to 6.5879 at 10:04 a.m. in Shanghai, approaching a five-year low against the dollar. A gauge of the greenback’s strength climbed 1.1 percent when mainland markets were closed for holidays. The central bank set the reference rate 0.3 percent weaker.

“There is a high chance the yuan will break the January low,” said Wang Ju, senior foreign-exchange strategist at HSBC Holdings Plc. “The fundamentals for the yuan are weak: the economy is slowing and capital is flowing out of China.”

Markets In Turmoil As Brexit Fears Mount And Japan, China Data Tumbles

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

FX, equity, and bond markets are in turmoil as Asian markets begin trading with Japan ugly, Sterling getting spanked, China devaluing FX (stocks down hard), and crude ($48 handle) and US equity futures (Dow -70) extending losses (as bond markets are all tumbling to record low yields). The hangover from further brexit concerns is not helped by the weakness in Japanese and Chinese data tonight.

First Japanese manufacturing data was a disaster…

Then Chinese data largely disappointed. A “meet” in Industrial Production – hovering at multi-year lows…


Retail Sales missed…*CHINA MAY RETAIL SALES RISE 10.0% FROM YEAR EARLIER (lowest since 2006)

And FAI missed… *CHINA JAN.-MAY FIXED-ASSET INVESTMENT EXC. RURAL RISES 9.6% (lowest since 2000)

And if the anxiety over global growth and Brexit were not enough, this China data has sparked even more turmoil in markets as Asia gets going…

First, Japan…


Japanese stocks shorts biggest since 2008…

And Japanese 10Y Yields record lows (along with 20Y and 5Y)…

But it’s not just Japan, Germany, and Switzerland…


In China, as we could have guessed by Bitcoin’s surge, the Yuan is tumbling…

PBOC devalues the Yuan fix by over 2 handles – back near 5 year lows…

As the Yuan basket plunged to lowest since Nov 2014

Chinese stocks are down most in 6 weeks:


And anything Brexit-related…

Cable at 2mo lows…

Sterling shorts biggest in 3 years…

and GBPJPY is a bloodbath… Pound plunging to lowest since Aug 2013…

And finally, gold is holidng its recent gains…

Which must be very upsetting for The BIS. Given this much turmoiling, one can only imagine the central bank efforts to make sure Monday opens green on the NYSE.

Bill & Hillary Clinton: Republicans’ Fifth Column In Democratic Politics

Courtesy of Ben Tanosborn

(With emphasis in bold by Zero Hedge, as posted here.)

Forty days left until the Democratic Party’s convention in Philadelphia, and Bernie, just like Jesus did two millennia ago, will be trying to find answers in solitude… and fight temptation from the devil of “accommodating politics.”  Jesus would do it, according to the Gospels, in the wilderness without food; Bernie is likely to do it at home, in pretty Burlington (Vermont), keeping a normal diet and the company of a smart phone.

The demonstration of affection for progressivism by Democrats and honest-to-heart Independents was dealt a heavy blow by Tuesday’s election results; results likely to be reinforced by President Obama’s imminent endorsement of Hillary Clinton… triggered by a battle cry urgency to stop this 2016-boogeyman, Donald Trump, from branding the nation as his psycho-political casino:  Fantasy-Trump-America.

It’s beginning to look as if the $200 million spent by Bernie believers to bring about and promote a progressive sociopolitical agenda for America may prove not to have been in vain, as the voice of progressivism that Clinton-Husband silenced in the 1990’s, might not  remain totally muzzled in Clinton-Wife’s prospective centrist-right platform.

Resurgent progressivism and loyal conservatism both appear to be undergoing painful castration in this 2016 presidential election; one by undemocratic and corrupt insider party politics, the other by the uglier face of bigoted-populism which might represent well over 25 percent of the nation’s population.  No, folks… not 5, 10 or 15 percent, but upwards of a quarter, maybe a third! This populism is responding to a demographic change in America of major transformational proportions; populism with a latent bigotry now finding an opportunity to surface as champion-du-jour, Donald Trump, singularly leads the way in “finally!” making acceptable both the vocalization and the behavior that up to now has been considered taboo, politically incorrect.   

Once again we are politically marching towards another presidential election with the limited prospect of choices, most based on aesthetics, not substance; a chance to select the proverbial lesser evil or failing to select at all.  Next January, either odious-Donald or odious-Hillary will be taking up White House residency, Johnson (Libertarian) and Stein (Green) having only non-critical influence in the outcome of the election thanks to our electoral system.  And that brings us to

Workaholic? This Study Finds You May Have Other Issues

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Being a workaholic comes along with being grown up and having responsibilities (well, it comes along with it for some people). Late nights out at the bar turn into firing up the laptop and putting the finishing touches on that presentation that is due first thing in the morning, weekends that used to be filled with keggers turn into all day working sessions just to catch up on all of the emails that got missed during the week – it happens (even if one works at the US Treasury, but only on occasion don't be alarmed).

However, there is a rather disturbing study that the World Economic Forum reported earlier in the month that may convince some to schedule that vacation that's been put off for the last decade.

As the WEF reports, a study of 16,426 working adults in Norway found that those with workaholism are significantly more likely to have psychiatric symptoms.

From the WEF

Psychology researchers, led by Cecilie Schou Andreassen from the University of Bergen in Norway, found a strong link between workaholism and ADHD, OCD, anxiety, and depression. They found:

-32.7% of workaholics also met ADHD criteria, compared to 12.7% of non-workaholics

-25.6% of workaholics also met OCD criteria, compared to 8.7% of non-workaholics

-33.8% of workaholics also met anxiety criteria, compared to 11.9% of non-workaholics

-8.9% of workaholics also met depression criteria, compared to 2.6% of non-workaholics

The authors speculated that there are several reasons those with ADHD might suffer workaholism, including inattentiveness forcing them to spend excess hours trying to make up work, working extra hard to counter misperceptions of laziness, or working to alleviate restlessness. For those with OCD, workaholism could become a compulsion. Meanwhile, working hard is “praised and honored in modern society,” write the authors, and so could be used as a means to counter anxiety or depression.

The study, which was co-authored by researchers from Yale University and Nottingham Trent University, did not determine whether workaholism caused the psychiatric symptoms or vice versa.

Marianna Virtanen, an epidemiologist at UCL and the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health was not involved in the study

Paul Craig Roberts On The “Frustrations Of Telling The Truth”

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Authored by Paul Craig Roberts,

Some examples of the ‘abuse’ one gets when telling the truth:

If I criticize the Israeli government for abusing Palestinians and stealing their country, the Israel Lobby accuses me of being an anti-semite who wants to repeat the holocaust. In the same batch of emails, anti-semites denounce me for being too easy on Israel and covering up for the Jewish conspiracy against mankind.

When I write about the One Percent using the government to loot the economy, I receive emails blaming me because I worked for Reagan “who started it all by cutting tax rates for the rich.” These people have no conception of supply-side economics, its purpose, success, and the way it prepared the way for Reagan to negotiate the end of the Cold War. At one point in their lives they read a left-wing screed against Reagan, and that is the extent of their understanding. But they are full of blind hate.

When I write about Washington’s crimes against other countries, I receive emails asking me where I was during Iran-Contra and Grenada. Apparently, they think that a Treasury official can run the State Department and Pentagon. Some of the readers are so confused that they think Reagan overthrew Allende in Chile. Alllende was overthrown in 1973. Reagan was inaugurated in 1981. It is dispiriting that there actually are people this ignorant and so proud of it that they will accuse me of helping Reagan to overthrow Allende.

When I point out the dangers of the reckless folly of Washington’s aggressions against Russia, China, and the independent Muslim world, superpatriots denounce me for being anti-American. There is a stratum of the US population that thinks that it is a criminal act to disbelieve the government or to question its judgment and motives. “You are with us or against us.”

When I document the death of the US Constitution and the rise of the American Police State, “law and order” conservatives admonish me that the police state only appies to terrorists and criminals and does not apply to law abiding citizens. They are convinced that Snowden and Assange are traitors, and no amount of evidence or reason can convince them otherwise. Neither can they be convinced that in the 21st century, law has become a

This Is What The Unprecedented Chinese M&A Scramble In America Looks Like

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

The raging need for Chinese oligarchs and corporations to park their cash offshore, and as far away as possible from the the mainland and the risk of sudden, sharp (10%-15%) devaluation, has resulted in not only an epic Vancouver housing bubble, or the predicted parabolic surge in bitcoin price (which has soared by 50% in just a few weeks), but an unprecedented M&A spree for US-based assets. We profiled as much in late March in a post titled “Eight Things The Chinese Are Scrambling To Buy In America.”

And while overall M&A in the US is down substantially YTD, sliding 28% by volume (but only 4% in number of deals) mostly as a result of the volatile market in the early part of the year as well as the chilling effect of Congressional crackdown on tax-inversion deals (such as the pulled Pfizer-Allergan mega-merger), and the lack of any blockbuster mega-cap (>$25 billion) deals, China not only refuses to go away, but the level of Chinese cross-border M&A chasing after US targets is literally off the charts.

Here are the details from Goldman:

Cross-border, while down in aggregate, continues to gain share at 34% of total YTD volumes (a 6-year high). While the distribution of acquirers and targets remains relatively well diversified, one trend has been increased Chinese volumes. Notably, China has accounted for 26% of global cross-border activity YTD, which is nearly 3x higher than the next highest year (2013).

While the vast majority of US targets continue to be bought by US acquirers, there has been a trend towards international purchasers, particularly from China, in recent years (see Exhibit 5). At $28 bn YTD, US-inbound deal flow from Chinese acquirers is already a record level and nearly 2x last year’s volumes ($17 bn). On the flip side, there have been relatively few deals of US acquirers going after Chinese targets, which is a change vs. the last M&A cycle in 2004-2008. See Exhibit 6.

So is it time to panic yet? No, first China has to buy Rockefeller Center, because what is taking place now is nothing that didn’t take place almost 30 years ago when Japan was likewise facing a comparable epic liquidity bubble and unleashed a massive wave of US-based

Central Banks & Governments and their gold coin holdings

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Within the world of central bank and government gold reserves, there is often an assumption that these gold holdings consist entirely of gold bullion bars. While this is true in some cases, it is not the fully story because many central banks and governments, such as the US, France, Italy, Switzerland, the UK and Venezuela, all hold an element of gold bullion coins as part of their official monetary gold reserves.

These gold coin holdings are a legitimate part of gold reserves since under International Monetary Fund (IMF) definitions, “monetary gold consists of gold coins, ingots, and bars”. In central banking parlance, monetary gold is simply gold that is held by a central bank or government as a reserve asset. Other central bank reserve assets include foreign exchange holdings and holdings of IMF Special Drawing rights.

Elsewhere in IMF definitions, it is stated that “monetary gold is generally construed to be at least 995/1000 pure. Many government and central bank gold coin holdings consist of previously circulated gold coinage. Since gold coins often had  - and still have – a purity of less than 99.5% gold due to the addition of metals for added durability, this ‘generally construed’ leeway in the IMF definition is undoubtedly a practical consideration that allows gold coins to be classified as monetary gold.

Central banks and governments hold gold for the same reasons that private citizens hold gold. Gold is real money with no counterparty risk, gold is a store of value, and gold is a safe haven asset. In general, central banks and governments are as happy holding bullion in gold bar form as in gold coin form. This is because physical gold is physical gold, and a gold coin and a gold bar will both provide their holders with the same benefits and protections. Only the physical form differs. In practice, the types and quantities of gold coins held by central banks and governments are extensive and varied as a quick tour d’horizon reveals.

Starting with the largest official sector gold holders, 3 of the top 5 gold holding countries have substantial gold coin holdings in their claimed reserves. The Banque de France, the guardian of France’s gold reserves, holds 2435.4 tonnes of gold consisting of a massive 100 tonnes of gold coins, and 2,335 tonnes

Big Names Are Bailing

The list of heavy hitters who are saying bad things about this world and its financial markets — while acting aggressively on their pessimism — is growing to alarming proportions. A few examples:

Stan Druckenmiller: The bull market is exhausted; move to gold

(MineWeb) – Legendary investor Stan Druckenmiller, founder of Duquesne Capital Management LLC, told the Sohn Investment Conference in New York last week that he is bullish on gold and bearish on the stock market. Gold, he told the conference, “is our largest currency allocation.”

Druckenmiller recommended that investors sell their equity holdings. “The bull market is exhausting itself,” he told the conference. A major factor has been the Federal Reserve’s easy money policy, which has resulted in “reckless” corporate behavior.

Growing corporate debt is increasingly used for financial engineering, rather than in R&D that could lead to productivity improvements, Druckenmiller said. According to him, from 2012 to 2015, use of debt for U.S. nonfinancial firms for stock buybacks and M&A increased from $1.25 trillion to $2 trillion, while debt for R&D and office equipment grew from $1.55 trillion to only $1.8 trillion.

“The corporate sector today is stuck in a vicious cycle of earnings management, questionable allocation of capital, low productivity, declining margins and growing indebtedness,” Druckenmiller added.

The slowing Chinese economy as another reason to sell equities, according to Druckenmiller. He believes that stimulus measures by China have “aggravated the overcapacity in the economy.” While he had hope two years ago that the Chinese were willing to accept the tradeoff of a slowdown to gain reform, the Chinese “have opted for another investment-focused fiscal stimulus, which may buy them some time but will exacerbate their problem. They do not need more debt and more houses.”

Instead, Druckenmiller has made a move to gold. “It has traded for 5,000 years and for the first time has a positive carry in many parts of the globe as bankers are now experimenting with the absurd notion of negative interest rates,” he said. “Some regard it as a metal, we regard it as a currency, and it remains our largest currency allocation,” he added. Among his investments are holdings in the SPDR Gold Trust.

The Media Asks: Can Trump Defeat The Clinton All-Star Team

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

When it comes to Donald Trump and his bid for the presidency, what has become a recurring theme is that at every step along the way, people have underestimated him.

Nobody gave The Donald a real shot at lasting very long in the Republican primaries, let alone outlasting the establishment favorite Jeb Bush – that alone sent everyone’s head on a swivel. After that, nobody gave Donald a real chance to finish off the race against Ted Cruz and John Kasich, everyone kept waiting for Trump to trip over his own comments or tweets, but that time never came. The establishment got so concerned that an alliance was even brokered between Cruz and Kasich in order to make one last effort to stop Trump, and once again that effort failed miserably.

Now that Trump is presumably going to be the GOP candidate that faces off against Hillary (assuming Clinton doesn’t somehow lose superdelegates to Sanders during the convention or get indicted first) for the presidency, the media once again is framing Trump as the significant underdog.

The latest narrative as reported by The Hill is that Trump will struggle to find anyone to campaign for him, or anyone with a “name for themselves” at least. It is pointed out that Clinton plans to send all of the heavy hitters out to campaign, a literal establishment All-Star team. With the likes of Michelle Obama, President Obama, Bill Clinton, and Elizabeth Warren out there advocating to the masses for Hillary, how could it be humanly possible for Trump to prevail in November.

After all, no big name Republicans have signed on to back Trump, at least not in earnest. The war hero comments about John McCain have pissed him off to the point where Trump can’t rely on that support, Mitt “trickle down racism” Romney has already made it known where he stands on the matter of supporting Trump, and former hopefuls Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio have been lukewarm on Trump at best, and likely won’t sign up to truly be a friend to the Trump campaign during the summer and fall.

So who is left to help Trump? The Hill brings up New Jersey governor Chris Christie as one option, although Christie’s approval has been down in his

Despacito - How to Make Money the Old-Fashioned Way - SLOWLY!

Are you ready to retire?  

For most people, the purpose of investing is to build up enough wealth to allow you to retire.  In general, that's usually enough money to reliably generate a year's worth of your average income, each year into your retirement so that that, plus you Social Security, should be enough to pay your bills without having to draw down on your principle.

Unfortunately, as the last decade has shown us, we can't count on bonds to pay us more than 3% and the average return from the stock market over the past 20 years has been erratic - to say the least - with 4 negative years (2000, 2001, 2002 and 2008) and 14 positives, though mostly in the 10% range on the positives.  A string of losses like we had from 2000-02 could easily wipe out a decades worth of gains.
