Re: Permanently low interest rates

Companies know rates can go up, they'd deserve to go under. I might agree that BOJ and ECB are keeping bad companies afloat with free money. Unemployed/bored people commit crime tho, another reason to get rid of min wage. https://seekingalpha.com/article/4250756-buybacks-making-market-look-cheaper ^...

Re: Dividend Growth Investing

If anything, "short" them. I bought consumers staples ETF just before Trumps election, when sentiment was negative and defensive (30 year at 2.33% market predicting low growth/inflation). The ETF got left behind because the narrative changed to "pro-business." The 30 year is still ~3% so now might b...

Re: Permanently low interest rates

Everyone loves Dalio's video but im not sure yet. How does he come up with "typically 50 years" for a long term cycle. The world changes a lot over 50 year spans. We had a soft landing after the tech bubble. If it was even a "bubble", we didnt know how tech would pan out. Predicting the future is ha...

Re: BOJ Largest Shareholder of stocks

Japan's rich. Next they'll buy your neighbors house unless nationalism blocks it.

The problem is they keep companies on life support. If Frank in the cubicle next door gets paid to do nothing, I'll do nothing too.

Re: The GOLD scream room

As the son of immigrants, I have to pipe up and point out what is the unseen Achilles tendon of American culture at this point, and why it's all going to sh**. Americans who have been here a long time don't see it, but immigrants see it, and we talk about long time Americans behind y'alls back, by ...

Re: Permanently low interest rates

^ its not a choice, they're not capable and we have to work around that. Legal immigrants DO take "good" jobs. Jobs that overpaid given how complex they are. In the 70s you could get $20/hour to stamp out widgets. Now thats done in Vietnam and those Americans are either unable or unwilling to strugg...

Re: Permanently low interest rates

The future is Japan. Fed's gonna buy stocks in the next asset price downturn, like Japan's doing now. MMT is just semantics, we already print money, MMT is a moral crusade from a few economists who get triggered when politicians say "but there isnt enough cash for that social program" UBI wont work ...
