Big Brothers Are Fighting For World Domination

The struggle for world domination is never-ending. Governments, with their armies, fight to control not only their population, but also the rest of the world. The tools and battle strategies may change, but the goal never does. Immediately after finishing our article about digital currency combined with negative interest rates, Chuck Butler wrote “China’s Digital Currency Is Ready […]

The Great Roundup

The Great Roundup

As a youngster, every Saturday we would head to the movies for a double feature of cowboy movies; all for the price of a quarter. Sandwiched between the storyline we saw scenes of cowboys rounding up cattle, herding them toward parts unknown. That was before McDonald’s, and we never saw them marching to the slaughterhouse. […]

Heeding the Warning Signs of Inflation

Heeding the Warning Signs of Inflation

It was a picture-perfect afternoon in Fort Myers, Florida. Jo, Holly, my son Drew, a couple of his college baseball teammates and I decided to take our brand-new boat for a spin in the Gulf. I passed my Coast Guard course and was full of confidence. We barreled toward the markers at the entrance of […]

The Virus We Can’t Escape

The Virus We Can’t Escape

One of my earliest childhood memories was my grandmother and me bringing home groceries in my wagon. I’ve never forgotten her ranting about rising grocery prices. She seldom raised her voice, but over dinner, she let it out…. “I’ve never been able to carry home $25 worth of groceries. We had to use the wagon […]

MMT – Modern Monetary Theory –or– Magic Money Tree?

The politicos are hawking Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) to finance their reckless spending. Investopedia explains: “Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) is a heterodox macroeconomic framework that says monetarily sovereign countries (that) spend, tax, and borrow in a fiat currency they fully control, are not operationally constrained by revenues when it comes to federal government spending. ….

What Happens When All Our Wealth Is Gone?

When I was dating my wife Jo, her 10-year-old daughter Holly learned I was a glutton for chocolate chip cookies. This adorable little lady grinned, loaded in the chocolate chips and baked an entire batch by herself. As she put the cookies on the cooling rack, I began to devour them. They were soft, moist […]

Restocking The Swamp

Restocking The Swamp

America is going through a regime change, out with the old, and in with the new. Oh really! With the entrenched political establishment, the faces may change, but the swamp remains. Pundit Bill Bonner recently wrote, “Bush, Obama, Trump…and presently, the hack from Delaware…all share the same goal – to keep the elites in power, at […]

What’s Going To Happen To The Dollar?

I was not surprised when the Wall Street Journal reported, “Senate Moves to Confirm Trump Fed Nominee Waller, but Shelton’s Candidacy Hits Likely Dead End.” Waller is an insider, currently working for the St. Louis Fed, while Shelton is an advocate of returning to the gold standard. Ms. Shelton was described by some senators as […]

Guaranteed Safe Fixed Income Is Still Possible, If You Know Where To Find It

Guaranteed Safe Fixed Income Is Still Possible, If You Know Where To Find It

Why do retirees crave guaranteed fixed income? It’s simple. Retiring comfortably is having enough money to enjoy your lifestyle, without constantly having to worry about money. Prior to the 2008 bank bailouts, Certificates of Deposit and top-quality bonds filled that role well. Current interest rates are pathetic. At current rates, CDs and quality bonds are guaranteed […]

PhD Economics Versus Common Sense

PhD Economics Versus Common Sense

Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman is at it again. He recently wrote, “US needs a really, really big relief package to keep its economy afloat.” Mr. Krugman’s opinions vary, depending on the political landscape. In late October 2016, anticipating the election of Hillary Clinton, he wrote, “Debt, Diversion, Distraction”. “Are debt scolds demanding that we slash spending […]
