Everything You Need to Know About the S&P Until Christmas

When I need to clear my mind, I put on my beat-up Saucony sneakers and drive to nearby Deer Lake Park in Burnaby, British Columbia. After a couple of miles, though, as my body gets into a rhythm, my mind wanders back to the thought that occupy it for hours each day: where will this […]

Thoughts from the Frontline: The End of Monetary Policy

  We are the hollow men We are the stuffed men Leaning together Headpiece filled with straw. Alas! Our dried voices, when We whisper together Are quiet and meaningless As wind in dry grass Or rats’ feet over broken glass In our dry cellar… This is the way the world ends This is the way […]

Outside the Box: Future Bull

  In a conversation this morning, I remarked how rapidly things change. It was less than 20 years ago that cutting-edge tech for listening to music was the cassette tape.

Thoughts from the Frontline: Where’s the Growth?

  In 1633 Galileo Galilei, then an old man, was tried and convicted by the Catholic Church of the heresy of believing that the earth revolved around the sun. He recanted and was forced into house arrest for the rest of his life, until 1642. Yet “The moment he [Galileo] was set at liberty, he […]

Don’t Be a Freedom Wimp: Live from the Casey Research Summit in San Antonio

On Day Two of the Casey Research Summit in San Antonio, the emphasis was decidedly on the “deep state,” as Doug Casey termed it: what it is, what it’s doing, and how to thrive despite its ubiquitous reach.

Home Healthcare Cuts Threaten 500,000 Jobs and Put Female-Owned Businesses at Risk

That title wouldn’t make for much of a campaign slogan, and yet, it’s the natural outcome of one particular politician’s promise.

How You Can Tell When a Company’s P/E is All Flash

College reunions are toxic. Except for the few precious moments of genuine human connection, these parties are nothing but status pageants. Suits and watches are inconspicuously glanced at, vacation photos (carefully selected the night before) are passed around; compensations guesstimated; Platinum Master Cards flashed (“Oh no, let me take care of this round!”); spouses evaluated […]
