The First Shall Be First, the Last Shall Be Last

OK, that title was not exactly the Sermon on the Mount. But it is Matthew – seriously.

Peak Population – Sow the Wind, Reap the Whirlwind

Chris Hamilton of Econimica shared two graphs reproduced above that summarize all we need to know about macro trends (see https://econimica.blogspot.com/2021/04/ever-fewer-people-need-ever-more.html). You don’t need the usual “talking head” on Squawk Box, or “insights” from some economist to explain the role of “economic slack”. It’s simple physics: wage-generating population (and, households), and money stock. All thereContinue reading “Peak Population – Sow the Wind, Reap the Whirlwind”

US Navy NOT Entering the Black Sea After All

On 9 April 2021 the Turkish government stated that it had received notification from the U.S. that two warships would enter the Black Sea on 14-15 April.

Sock Puppet Provocations in Ukraine

Since the installation of “Sock Puppet Joe” as President, we’ve seen no small amount of ecalating national suicide – open borders and subsidizing illegal immigration, criminalization of opponents to the oligarchy, and destruction of key American industries.

Tim Knight (Slope of Hope) on “Cruisin for a Bruisin”: https://slopeofhope.com/2021/04/cruising-for-a-bruising-4.html I believe the entire cruise industry has topped out; each of these three cruise giants have stalled beneath years of overhead supply and, I believe, are sailing into treacherous waters: “Tubes one and two, fire when matched!”

Achegos Margin Call

Robert Gore teaches some great truths in his “Everything I Know About Business I Learned From The Godfather.” I grew up in that neighborhood so I never needed to read Gore. I got it every day.
