We consider the next moves for the leadership of our fictional Directorate 153 going forward. We periodically look at a fictional extra-government unit that really pulls the strings in global affairs. Not that it’s real, of course, but when we look at what goes on in the world, we can see what seems at times so much like an “invisible hand” that we have to consider the existence of such a group as a real possibility.
When we do, some interesting insights appear. Particularly when there has been recent talk of the Berlin Wall anniversary and such. Think of it as the “How we get bent-over next” search.
First, though, coffee and headlines plus our trading model. Oh, and do we thank climate change for this morning’s iced coffee?
