The public should soon catch on to central banking failures suggests Bob Hoye from ChartsandMarkets.com. In another fascinating interview with Jim Goddard, Hoye calls out central bankers for implementing policies based on theories that do not work.

The Economy, the Stock Market and the Fed

John Hussman on Recent Developments

We always look forward to John Hussman's weekly missive on the markets. Some people say that he is a "permabear", but we don't think that is a fair characterization. He is rightly wary of the stock market's historically extremely high valuation and the loose monetary policy driving the surge in asset prices.

Sound Bites: US insiders flee as Fed officials feud over rates

According to FactSet, for the second quarter the blended earnings decline for the S&P 500 is -3.5% with 91% of the index companies reporting as of August 12th. That marks the first time the index has recorded five consecutive quarters of year-over-year earnings declines since the third quarter of 2009. Nevertheless, as earnings season winds down, investors are pushing broad US benchmarks to new all-time highs. Investors it seems are buying into the narrative that earnings will only get better from here.

Sound bites: Limits to growth

Back in the 1970s, a think tank called the Club of Rome commissioned a publication Limits to Growth which argued the world would soon press up against a wall of finite natural resources. As a consequence, the world needed to prepare for a lower growth environment. Some forty years later the world may have indeed run up against limits to growth, but not due to natural resource depletion. Instead, accumulated global debt may be the culprit.

Weekly Sound Bite: Looking for signs that the global economy may surprise on the upside

For the past year or so we have been getting used to bad news on the world economy with the IMF, OECD, and the Fed taking a downbeat view on world growth, particularly China. However, North American insiders have not been so negative recently.
