Depression Like No Other

Reader Note:  We will be moving to a new server farm today.  So from noon (CDT) today until I’m done (take it any way you will) the Peoplenomics website may have a few unreachable moments… We’re not leaving.  Just rearranging the digital furniture. Report now? A twisted tale of future studies, dream worlds, and computers that run intelligence is our topic.  Following the Friday market sell-off, next week could be interesting. How about I tell …

Gears, GDP, Filers and a Side of Quake

Our Discussion of Mental Plug-Ins is more useful, but since the quake is more likely to come up in watercooler talk, here’s the quake map from the 8.2 off Alaska overnight.  Screen snag shows this is far away from Anchorage and over a ridge of mountains from Bristol Bay. Made headlines around the world, such as in Huge quake of magnitude 8.2 on Alaska peninsula triggers tsunami alert (kathmandupost.com).  But so far, haven’t heard any …

Housing on the Brink?

I mentioned in this morning’s column that housing starts were collapsing in a federal report out Monday. However, there’s no real clarity on where that’s coming from:  Could have been the spike in lumber prices (since passed) or it could be the change in demand from declining birth rates, or maybe something as simple as people trying to figure out how to make house payments if they take a bigger plunge. So with this as …

China Drops, Housing Shortly

We considered the headline “Hong Kong Woes Slow as Schmoe’s Doze…” but figured it would be too much for this hour.  Instead:  Hang Seng Sunk is closer to it. If you flip over to the ^HSI chart on Yahoo (here) and click onto the 1-month view, you’ll see why we’re a little nervous:  The 29,261 on the Hang Seng a month ago and a low (overnight intra-session) of 24,748 is (there’s a technical term for …

Markets Pause for Data, Woo-Woo Research

Whew!  Week is off to a weird start – since most of this morning is Adventures in Wo0-Woo. 90-minutes to the opening, the Dow was down over 100 but that’s totally understandable.  No one really knows what the f**k is going on, anymore.  Americans’ optimism about country’s direction over next year drops nearly 20 points since May: POLL – ABC. Hong Kong cratered more than 4% overnight, but Japan was up almost one percent,  Maybe …

Market Hype: Higher Open – Close is What Matters

Another morning in the land of Shills and Shrills opens with Ure all set to take on another over-scheduled day.  What happened to the notion of retirement?  I swear, if someone would offer a fair price for UrbanSurvival, I’d retire to a low profile twice-weekly Peoplenomics report and spend more time puttering in the shop. Play-by-Play of a world cracking up – though interesting – is not the highest and best use of any of …

Too Much “Slow” as Shortages Grow

The Sovietization of America is not just chronicled in Mark Levin’s new book American Marxism, but it’s becoming evident in two spectacular ways.  First is the democrats reversing course on masking.  Slow Joe is now backed into a corner, medically:  Do the right thing (like Trump did) or do the political thing.  This as hospitalizations are the highest in months.  And behind closed doors White House officials debate masking push as Covid infections spike. We can skip the open …
