Optimism, The Greater 1929 Rhyme, Fools Leading Idiots

Seldom have times been easier for an honest writer.  There are so many “hot topics” around that it boggles the mind.  So, still in recovery mode from our snow event, we will keep it short in order to (more importantly) “keep it warm.” Small Business Optimism Collapses National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) publishes an optimism report each month.  A composite – street level look – at the immediate future.  Not surprisingly, the press release …

Simpson’s “Time Machine” – Asylum Walk-through

Local power company had the lights on in just over 90-minutes last night. Following the big East Texas Blizzard of ’21.   All the parts of the operation here that “fail-over” to backups worked fine.  Lights off in the house was actually a pleasant change.  Too lazy to dip into our 500 gallons of propane for heat. A bit ironic, though:  Since in the Saturday Gourmet column there’s a clear reference to  “Candlelight dinners…you ARE still having …

The "Jack D. Future" Show

Occasionally, in order to get across our somewhat unorthodox views, we will resort to fiction. We have done this with great success in our tales of Directorate 153.  In that series, fiction gave us great forewarning and still offers insight into what’s errantly called the “Deep State.” That premise has been simple:  Hidden, within the rural Virginia area west of D.C. yet adjacent to a seldom-used long runway, lays a hypothetical deep underground military base.  …

1929 Stock Market Replay Nearly Complete – Jobs Drop

While America’s attention is riveted on events in D.C. we have remained steadfastly focused on how our “1929 Replay Tracking” chart has been evolving. Here’s how it looked this morning; prior to the federal jobs report and using early futures pricing: It’s axiomatic in comparative economic cycles work that “waveforms” are usually similar.  The question is whether they are usefully predictive. More for our Peoplenomics.com subscribers tomorrow (as the chart will be updated to reflect …

“Hidden Depression” in Amerizuela

### print: money.doc | more I’ve been up half the night (since 2AM) trying to figure out why the market is soaring to such crazy heights.  I mean think about it: The CV-19 rollout is not going as fast as expected. There was a 123,000 job drop in the ADP report for Dec. 77-thousand jobs cuts in December. Sales are still rolling at Amazon, but in terms of Growth? So WHAT the hell is going on? Then …

The Power of Autarky

Our coverage of the “War Between the Bankers” picks up from the Monday nosebleed in the market.  We update this relative to “The Joe Line” in our ChartPack this morning. The “Joe Line” is a level below which the incoming Biden administration has an opportunity to fall smack into a depression without so much as a mock waiting period.  Which would be bad for the outgoing Trump, since Biden can paint whatever ails America as …
