Fed’s Inflation Victory Is a Loss for Consumers – Ep. 362

Fed Raises Rates for the 7th Time

The Federal Reserve raised interest rates today.  I think this is the 7th rate hike. Six of these rate hikes have now taken place since Donald Trump was elected; five of them since he was inaugurated. The official rate now is 1.75% to 2%.  The Federal Reserve targets the […]

Jobs Report Feeds Delusional Economic Narrative – Ep. 358

Jobs Friday

Today is the first day of June and it’s also jobs Friday. But before we get to the always highly-anticipated nonfarm payroll number, I want to talk about some of the economic data that came out yesterday, on Thursday.

Ep. 357: Populism a Bigger Problem in the U.S. Than Italy

Economy Slowing Down

We got quite a bit of economic data that was released today, pretty much all of it confirming what everybody seems to be denying, and that is that the U.S. economy is, in fact, slowing down, at least the way we like to measure it.  We will get more data later in the […]

Not much action today in the stock markets on this Friday before a 3-day Memorial Day holiday weekend.  The action was really in the oil markets, the bond markets and the foreign exchange markets. The biggest move happening in crude oil.  Crude was down just over $3/barrel today; one of the […]
