Tomorrow I’ll be posting my hour long exclusive podcast interview with independent journalist Matt Taibbi — we covered topics like the economy, finance, the coming election, politics and whether the left has lost its mind...or we have.

My interview with Matt will be released here tomorrow morning and will be available to all of my paid subscribers.

This past week I covered a number of topics, not the least of which in my hourlong discussion with Andy Schectman was whether or not the powers that be could be tanking the economy on purporse. That full interview is here: Are We Destroying The Economy On Purpose?

I also posted Mark Spiegel’s latest letter, where he argues inflation’s new “normal” is going to wind up back at 3%: New Inflation Floor Will Be 3%: Mark Spiegel

Last week I also had several interesting conversations, not the least of which was my interview with veteran floor trader Jack Boroudjian. Jack laid out to me what level he needs to see bond yields at before he believes the economy could hit “serious earthquakes”. Listen here: Yields To Trigger "Serious Earthquakes" Across Economy: Jack Boroudjian

This interview follows last week’s interview with Spiegel, which honed specifically in on Tesla, and why Mark in no way expects Elon Musk to reach his target of launching a finished Robotaxi product by the August 8, 2024 reveal date: Tesla's Robotaxi Is "Obviously Bullshit": Mark Spiegel

Additionally last week, I wrote about our country’s $100 billion in foreign aid that we decided to approve last weekend. To me, it’s blindingly obvious that the country has lost all semblance of fiscal conservativism — and I think it’s going to cost our economy and the U.S. dollar in the long run: Kick Back, Watch It Crumble

And finally, I wrote a piece late last week talking about Joe Biden’s new proposed taxes for 2025 — including a ludicrous idea to tax unrealized gains at 25% — and why that could further torpedo our already struggling economy: Taxing Unrealized Gains Would Obliterate The U.S. Economy
