  3. With American foreign policy the way it is there will be thousands of lives lost every year.

  4. You should try out for the next Expendables movie. While you're in LA you could make a few connections.

  5. Mike Norman, Executive Producer
    (of you daughter's films)

  6. What’s preventing home builders from ramping up production?

  7. Also people who were helping NATO alliance in Afghanistan will… I think people will think twice before go to help Western powers.

  8. Andrey Tsarukyan

    Mike, You must help Your daughter to make really good film about financial markets, because You are in this industry for a long time.

    For example " Wall Street: Rotten brains ", where You can tell how Hedge Fund managers with gold standard way of thinking lost money.

  9. I share your sadness

  10. Instead of boosting up reserves, they need to start sending cheques directly to people. Agree Mike ?

  11. well i hope america is finally done with using their vote to "BREAK THE GLASS CEILING". this time around its 1st potus dementia patient & 1st woman of POC with both having their brains in their crotch… WAIT, THERE'S MORE! this kinda garbage is gonna get the trumptards & avg voters seeing this level of idocracy will get us a pompeo in 24…

  12. The construction industry has no interest in building enough housing to suppress prices, especially as the credit boom takes off. Instead they will drip feed the market, and the more speculative the market becomes the more properties will be left vacant as 'investors' favour liquidity over yields.
    Yes a credit boom is coming and prices are only going higher, but then this was predicted by the 18 year cycle which suggested a 2008-12 bust, 7 years steady gains to around 2019 then credit boom into the 2026/7 bust. I'm always told you cannot look at history to predict the future, yet here we are almost exactly on schedule.
    Until MMT adopts LVT it will never be a holistic remedy to the economies ills.

  13. There have been times this year the govt bond market has been the most shorted in history because everyone and their brother are betting on huge inflation.my understanding is shorting duplicates bonds…so in theory should have some pressure upwards on rates simply because there are more bonds on the market. Thoughts?…btw🤪they're printin munnnnnaayyyy!🤪🧟‍♂️
