A Very Concise Explanation Of Why The Democrats Lost (And Will Keep Losing)

"Think of the arrogance of their mindset - vote for our candidate because she is not good, but less bad than the other fellow, and once again you really have no other choice... They blame racism, the Russians, sexism, Bernie bros, hackers, the 'deplorables' in a bit of an ironic twist on the Romney moment, the electoral college, and even the roots of democratic process itself. They and their strategy failed. Spectacularly."

Goldman's Bear Case In 7 Steps: "We Are In The 98th Percentile Of Historical Valuations"

"S&P 500 valuation is stretched relative to history on nearly every fundamental metric. At the aggregate level, the S&P 500 index trades at the 85th percentile of historical valuation relative to the past 40 years.

Sarah Palin Slams Trump Carrier Deal As "Crony Capitalism", "Corporate Welfare"

"Politicians picking and choosing recipients of corporate welfare is railed against by fiscal conservatives, for it’s a hallmark of corruption. And socialism. The Obama Administration dealt in it in spades.... When government steps in arbitrarily with individual subsidies, favoring one business over others, it sets inconsistent, unfair, illogical precedent."

In The Year Of Fake News, Finance Cannot Be Entertainment

This general populist backlash that we’re seeing now isn’t new. It was born out of the 2008 financial crisis.  Many are still coming out of that debt burden and harbor a sense of deep resentment and suspicion.  Wall Street knew what was taking place then, but like today, the media didn’t paint a full picture for everyone.  As a result people lost their homes, their jobs and their life savings. We deserve so much more than to be just entertained.

Trump Vs China: Credit Cycles & Gold

As all experience from the past clearly demonstrates, it is a mistake to believe that the gold price is set solely by dollar interest rates, or its relative strength in other currencies.
