Rising implied inflation heralds the end of the MMT party

“By My word and for the good of the state, The bearer has done what has been done.”   Has WuFlu returned us to a fictional 17th century where any excess is permissible “for the good of the state”, but where accountability is as nebulous as the infamous ‘Carte Banche’?  Looking at the unmitigated project fear […]

Investors start to challenge fiat markets for delivery

It should be fairly obvious that when supply exceeds demand, then prices will fall. Print more fiat cash than one is growing the economy and you’ll end up with currency debasement, even if initially governments and their central banks can spin this as asset inflation and some sort of spurious economic success story.

Command economics, or just fantasy financing?

Are the lockdowns really an attempt to spare over-whelming health services, or an excuse to bail out all those bad loans sitting on bank balance sheets since 2008?
