“There are decades where nothing happens and there are weeks when decades happen.” – Vladimir Lennin.
Everything Gordon T. Long and I have been talking about has come to fruition. The size and magnitude of the problem has been grossly understated. Oil companies, state and local government debt. Globally it’s even worse. 50-60 percent of S&P profits are coming out of the global economy. The forward PE is 20, higher than at the peak. Other than the US markets, everyone else’s are imploding. What we’ve seen in terms of monetary and fiscal policy is unprecedented. We’re attempting to bailout the world and it won’t end well. In the next stage we will lose confidence in the government and the currency. You can always count on politicians to print money and then getting it into the right hands. The PPP was a complete scam. The rats are deserting the ship.
