Third-Party Candidates Will Swing the Election

March 01, 2024 / James Rickards

Although my focus is on markets rather than politics, it's impossible to forecast markets without understanding what's going on in the political realm. While there are important Senate and House races this year, all eyes are focused on the presidential race likely (as of now) to be between Joe Biden and Donald Trump.A Trump vs. Biden (if he makes it) replay of the 2020 election could be close and...Read More

When Complex Systems Collide

March 01, 2024 / James Rickards

At some point, systems flip from being complicated, which is a challenge to manage, to being complex. Complexity is more than a challenge because it opens the door to all kinds of unexpected crashes and events.Their behavior cannot be reduced to their component parts.

A Nation of Rent-Serfs

March 01, 2024 / Charles Hugh Smith

Traders Wanted. Losers Welcome.

March 01, 2024 / Greg Guenthner

They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.But if this adage is accurate, shouldn't most investors buy a one-way ticket to their local looney bin?Perhaps this is an insensitive comment.

EVs Are a Bust

March 01, 2024 / Jeffrey Tucker

We are living through one of history's longest and most excruciating versions of "We told you so."When in March 2020, the world's governments decided to "shut down" the world's economies and throttle any and all social activity, and deny kids schooling plus cancel worship services and holidays, there was no end to the warnings of the terrible collateral damage, even if most of them were censored.E...Read More

Who Watches the Watchmen?

March 01, 2024 / Sean Ring

It's bad enough that Joe Biden is the worst president in US history.That Antony Blinken is a terrible Secretary of State makes matters worse. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin can't be bothered to clock in nowadays. Attorney General Merrick Garland leaves no impression he'd have been a great SCOTUS justice, seeing his Department of Justice isn't worthy of its name. And due in no small part to Nati...Read More
