A Silver Lining to Bond Disintermediation

Bond market isn’t growing as fast as the stock market. In relative terms, it’s shrinking. Which, we think offers a novel opportunity to offload the Federal Debt onto individual shareholders.

The process takes a wee bit of explaining, but our point is that while the Federal Debt screams toward the $30-trillion level, there is a way to “IPO it away.”

The time to offload would be when, ideally?  How about in the midst of a massive stock bubble…like right now?

Which we will table after we first roll a few headlines and review our unorthodox view of the stock market this week.

Which was even more irrational than usual – Losing Afghanistan, but let’s run up stocks.  Why, it’s almost a harbinger of Buy the Rumor – and God forbid what the Sell the News events in the wings might be…

China Lights it Up?

Nature abhors a vacuum – and the Biden mess in Afghanistan is creating a huge one.  With the Chinese having said – almost forever – that reunification with Taiwan will happen – the pending debacle still in the early stages of unfolding in the Middle East may offer China an unprecedented window of opportunity.

Will they take their time and await next year?  Or, will this fall (and we’ll give you a date to circle) be simply too much for them to pass up?

A chance for a two-fer?  Get  for China and hobble the U.S. for years to come?  We shall see what we shall Xi, we figure.

Meantime, the market seems to prepare for a fall rollover as new data still holds the line, but looking at new Fed numbers, trouble lurks.

A few headlines to warm up the brain cells and then into the thick of it.

Book Update: The 100-Year Toaster

My book Packing to Die: Suitcase Between Your Ears is now available on Amazon for Kindle.  Feel free to buy several thousand copies.

In a few days, the paperback version should be ready, as well.  Amazon’s had a “hitch in their print-along” this week. Not my error! I hear a number of other authors have material cued up, waiting for the glitch fixers to complete repairs…

The focus on getting this book printed got me to looking back at another Peoplenomics book I wrote some time back but never put out for the gen pop.  You can find the pertinent chapters of The-100-Year Toaster on the Master Index pages.

However, this morning, I decided to rewrite the first chapter of that because of more recent observations about the nature of not only product but also corporate obsolescence.   (Do I know how to party, or what?)

So after we clean up from the overnights and from the train wrecks, and a view of how bad this fall could really get in the ChartPack, we’ll focus on getting ahead by looking behind.  While there’s still time.
