Dueling Discontinuity Discussion

This morning we consider the “bounding issues” of the economy. Specifically, we use an electronics concept (amplifier linearity) and twist it around to consider how it’s a good thinking tool for understand the bounds on Fed policy with regard to rates. After coffee and the charts, of course. More for Subscribers       ||| SUBSCRIBE NOW!       |||   … Read More

Markets Wait for Blame Point

We hold to the curious view that there should be something come along in headlines in the next week that will drive the market lower.  Our projections range from an S&P 500 anywhere from 2,396 all the way down into the 2,290 area. This is never trading advice – as most of the gains this week … Read More

Coping: With the Fear of Death

Since this is a weekend when most of the Western world is concerned with a “death & dying event” some 2,000 years ago, there’s no better time to talk about what is arguably the biggest fear in Life. You see, much of how your life works is directly related to your outlook on Death.  And yes, … Read More

Managing Personal Money with Corporate Ratios

Well, ain’t this just a pickle?  Here we are ahead of the Easter holiday weekend and people are still not focused (mainly) on personally useful news.  Instead they are focused on complete time-wasters like, oh, how the return of Roseanne is going to somehow matter either in the future of Hollywood, or the conduct of your life.  (Although Trump … Read More

Coping: With Thought Projections

As you know, from reading my book “Dimensions Next Door: Hacking Space-time” there’s a whole chapter based on the Peoplenomics research into something called “The Light Crown Project.” The core idea is simple enough:  Every time a neuron fires, a photon is ejected by the electro-chemical reaction.  Ergo, if you want to change how the neurons … Read More

Coping: Men & Machines vs. Men & Computers

There’s a story (and song done most notably by Harry Belafonte) about John Henry.  It’s where our discussion of 3D printing this morning springs from… Song dates back to the 1870’s and the building of a mile-long tunnel for the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad.  Big Bend tunnel, also called the Great Bend Tunnel. John Henry, says … Read More

Sell the Hooker, Buy the News!

Futures up 322 on the Dow?  Of course the market’s running up today!  Ah, the perversion of economics spun along beautifully along with Hoover II’s SSFM (seriously steamy freaking mess) on 60-Minutia (sic). But in the end, who cares?  OK, Melania, then… Forget the DVD taunts (where is the extortion line crossed?), the blah, blah, … Read More

Making: A One-Hour Shoeshine Box

Saturday – Peoplenomics done.  Good week in the market.  Time to make something. My eye has come to rest on the Hangerworld Premium Cedar Wood Shoe Shine Care Box Kit with Foot Rest while cruising shoe polish boxes on Amazon. Fine unit.  But, at $29.95, I wondered “What could I make in under an hour from scrap … Read More

Nailed It: But Now What?

Did I make money on the market break yesterday which we’ve been yammering about for more than a month?  Yes.  3.6% for the  day, thanks for asking. OK, gimme the name of even ONE other website that was telling you – free – from mid-February that we should have a steep decline March 22 – … Read More

Coping: Market Turn Forecast 8-Years Ago

In the wake of the Las Vegas shooting last year I wrote a mighty long piece in which I not only chronicled the adventures of a hypothetical Deep State operation that I dubbed Directorate 153, but I also first mentioned the criticality of March 22. The adventure – which I have clipped and posted from the original … Read More
