If We All Move To Montana There Will Be No Slowdown

Tyler Durden's picture


We have explained the linkage between an inflating Federal Reserve balance sheet; the intended consequence of that excess (fungible) reserve liquidity leaking into non-printable assets; and that energy costs (and gas prices implicitly) are the end-game 'regulator' of that excess as they crush (again and again) the hopes of multiple-expansion-based equity strategies. However, even as prices of Gas surge once again towards the critical $3.80 level that has capped rallies in the last 5 years, the WSJ notes that Montana and Wyoming are still seeing prices below $3.25. Of course this is all just transitory - as we are told time after time - but the reason it is reflexively transitory is simply because of the effect on all the red states in the chart below driving consumers to cutback. Transitory, yes; slow-down-inducing for sure; the only thing that stops the world's central bankers going into a printing frenzy, absolutely.


If only we all moved to Montana or Wyoming, there'd be no slowdown?


and as a reminder... why this matters...

I hear it is nice in Montana in the Spring.  Sounds like a plan, Tyler.  Everyone to the Montana side of the boat...NOW!

Note: Texas may morph into the next Socialist state as Kalifornians relocate to Texas. Texas should have set up policies to both the hoard of liberals relocating to Texas. As more liberals vote in Texas, the more likely it will elect liberal polticians.

Obama declared TX as the a new battleground state.  Colbert just had Jeremy Bird on, the Obama campaign "mastermind", who is focusing on turning Texas into a blue state (Battleground Texas http://battlegroundtx.com/ )



Just reinforcing your point...

After witnessing the disaster of the blue presidency of G. W. Bush, I look around and all the Texas big cities have big blue mayors.  They have an inrush of blue state voters from across the US and blue voters from Mexico.  The restraints on government will not last very long as the limited government oldsters die off and the blue hoards sag what's left.  ND and MT - I just wish they weren't so freakin' cold.

Because otherwise you end up with whatever it was that Harrison Ford was doing in "K19: The Widowmaker."

Why do American film directors seem to feel that the ancient Romans all spoke with British accents as well?

If they didn't speak with a british accent no one would listen to what they had to say.

I wouldn't mind it so much if the typical British accent were not so mushy and mealy-mouthed --- every time a Brit comes on the screen, I have to double the volume and strain just to try to understand what the Hell they are saying.  If it's a damned Aussie, I just give up and turn it off; what those people do to vowels should be against the Geneva Convention.

I once worked with a Texan in a very analogous situation.

The guy was nice as could be, and not uneducated by any means, but DAMN did he have a thick accent!

Central for production. Manufacturing and Agriculture.

Capt. Vasili Borodin: I will live in Montana. And I will marry a round American woman and raise rabbits, and she will cook them for me. And I will have a pickup truck... maybe even a "recreational vehicle." And drive from state to state. Do they let you do that?
Captain Ramius: I suppose.
Capt. Vasili Borodin: No papers?
Captain Ramius: No papers, state to state.

No papers?? What kind of science fiction movie is this??

There are various taxes included. It varies state by state and will seem minor compared to the EU.
