The Chinese Economy Is Sinking, Not Transitioning





China’s stock market is a small, relative matter; the more troubling imbalances lie and remain elsewhere. This change in production profitability is concerning on three fronts: China’s industry persists at only getting worse even though it has already reverted to a state not seen in a decade or more; consumer appearances may seem generally optimistic despite all that but only because industrial activity has yet to fully make adjustments through resources and labor; and financial trends are likely already at the stage of self-reinforcement within and without.

Another Nail In The US Empire Coffin: Collapse Of Shale Gas Production Has Begun





Without energy, the U.S. economy would grind to a halt. All the trillions of Dollars in financial assets mean nothing without oil, natural gas or coal.

Apple, FANGs, & Monetary Fools





Eventually the prospect of recession that can’t be cured by the central bank printing presses will ignite sheer panic in the casino. Then the monetary fools running them will be reviled to the ends of the earth. But not before the lunatic 100X valuations of the FANGs implode like those of all the high flyers which have gone before. For the third time this century it is time to sell the bubble. Yes, do back up the trucks!

Dallas Fed "Responds" To Zero Hedge FOIA Request





Two weeks ago we, in collaboration with several readers, requested an official response from the Fed through a Freedom Of Information Act submission.
