Yellen is Wrong about the Cause of Wealth Inequality. October 17, 2014.
Janet Yellen blames the inequality between the middle-class and the very
wealthy on rising college costs and tougher lending practices that make it
difficult for people to start their own businesses. Economists and
politicians blame it on the inequity of the tax codes and want to raise
taxes on the wealthy. Left out of that type of analysis is how and why huge
amounts of capital periodically move from the hands of the middle-class to
the wealthy, creating the inequality in the first place.
Can the Fed Come to the Rescue Again if Needed? October 10, 2014.
The Fed has had to some to the rescue several times in the current bull
market, when either the economy or the market stumbled. If this market
pullback worsens, does the Fed have the tools or ability to come to the
rescue effectively again?
U.S. and Global Confidence are in Divergence - So Are the Markets. September 26, 2014. Investor and consumer
confidence are at extreme highs in the U.S., and very low and declining in
the rest of the world. Is it because the U.S. stock market is at or near
record highs, while so many global markets have broken beneath their
long-term 200-day m.a.'s? Is it as boxer Mike Tyson said, "Everyone is
confident and has a plan until they take a punch"?
Why a Market Correction Now Would be the Best Scenario. September 5, 2014.
There is high risk of a normal 10% to 20% correction. History and the
thinking of 'smart money' billionaire investors say that might be the best
scenario, since the risk is much higher of something much worse later if a
normal correction does not take place now.
Will Investors Get Out On Time This Time? July 18, 2014.
Public investors have a terrible record of repeatedly coming into bull
markets several years after they begin, and then not exiting until after
the next bear market has ended. The problem seems to be having no strategy
at all, for getting out - or back in.
Are Some Proven Investment Strategies Too Simple To Accept? May 23, 2014.
An interesting look at Jeremy Grantham's letter to clients of his $117
billion international money management firm for institutions and wealthy
investors. He notes decades of his firm's studies confirming the remarkable
performance of several investment strategies, and how investors blow them
off because they seem too simple to be effective.
