dollar-over-others

by David Stockman I am constantly braced with questions about the US dollar and its impending demise. The reasoning seems to be that if America is a debt addicted dystopia—-and it surely is—- won’t the US dollar sooner or later go down in flames as the day of reckoning materializes?

fed-recession

By David Stockman So now the third immense financial bubble of this century has been fully inflated. And there are abundant signs that what we really have is a Great Immoderation—–a baleful, not beneficent, development that can be laid exactly at the door step of the central bank.
