The U.S Economy Is Getting Weaker And Weaker

We are already decelerating, we are already going downhill. We have already passed the peak of economic expansion. We are contracting and we are either nearing recession or already in one. But the longer we go in time the weaker the economy is going to get.

U.S. Economy: Inflation & Economic Growth

Inflation does not cause economic growth and economic growth does not cause inflation. Governments cause inflation by creating money and economic growth comes from savings and investing. And how do you get savings and investment? You have sound money, low inflation, you have few regulations, you have low taxes, you have limited government. That is what grows an economy.

What The Federal Reserve Is Really Doing

Everybody still thinks that this is serious. They still don`t get what is actually going on that the Federal Reserve is not going to raise interest rates but they cannot admit that so they keep pretending.

By the time December rolls around the probability of a December hike will be way down and of course the probability of a March hike will be much higher because every time the Fed does not raise rates the markets believe a rate hike is coming. Why? Because the federal Reserve keeps talking about the possibility of raising interest rates but never actually doing it.

Fed Meeting: A Dollar Negative Event

I think this is a dollar negative event. I think this is a gold friendly event. remember the last time the Federal reserve raised interest rates everybody thought the gold would tank and instead it market the bottom and had a huge rally. People thought the Dollar would rise and it went the other way.

Federal Reserve: Why Would They Want To Take A Chance Of Raising Interest Rates Today?

Why would they want to take a chance of raising interest rates today knowing, (A) how weak the data is, (B) knowing that the markets could tank as a result of that rate hike. That is the last thing they want. Then what are they going to do? How are they going to reverse the decline?

The Dollar Will Take The Bond Bubble With It

Eventually when the U.S. Dollar bubble bursts it is going to take the bond market with it and this bubble economy is going to implode. Then the economic events of 2008 will look like a Sunday school picnic.

The Federal Reserve May Start Buying Corporate Bonds And Stocks Next

We Will Get Negative Interest Rates And More QE

What caused the big rally in the U.S. Dollar was the belief that the QE and zero percent interest rates were successful that the Federal Reserve was going to end the program and it was the anticipation of the tightening, of the normalization of interest rates, of the shrinking of the Fed`s balance sheet, that was what built the rally in the U.S. Dollar. But that was false.

As people figure out that they cannot normalize interest rates, they cannot shrink the balance sheet. In fact their balance sheet is going to grow again and not only are they not going to normalize interest rates, they are going to bring them back to zero. In fact this time zero is not going to be low enough. They will go negative. We will get negative interest rates and QE.

Markets: No Matter What Happens We Are Pretty Much Screwed

Its a problem if the Federal Reserve raises interest rates but they also acknowledged that it is a bigger problem if the Federal Reserve does not raise interest rates. If they raise interest rates they prick the bubble, if they don`t raise interest rates the bubble gets bigger and eventually it pops. So no matter what happens we are pretty much screwed.
