Re: Does high-interest policy constitute fiscal stimulus?

Only thing I'm 100% sure of is Vinny. Housing affordability is record low. But why should low skill labor get increased real wages. Automation and immigration is increasing. Wage gap narrowing might be explained by less productive (overpaid) degreed folk getting demoted by work from home. Comment se...

Re: Does high-interest policy constitute fiscal stimulus?

Economy is "booming" because government boot is off its neck. And low-skill real wages got cut by whatever amount they increased the money supply minus the mandated increases in min wage.

Re: Rebalancing and Timing

In theory rebalance daily. If you want more growth rebalance less often as stocks will likely do better long term. When long bonds get down to 1% its another conversation.

Emergency fund in local currency. Bag of global stocks (VTWAX). Bag of longest duration bonds you can find, from a stable enough issuer (prob US gov). Sell if rates near lower bound. (1.5%ish) Maybe gold as hyperinflation insurance. Or even better, real estate you can improve. Good enough for the wo...

For those living outside US, what is the situation with American companies being allowed to operate. Uber, Amazon, Google, Facebook, Walmart, Tesla.

Are they increasing or decreasing in exposure/market share? Might be related to speculation abt reserve currency status

Fell for the narrative and bought a rental in 05 which everyone says was near peak of bubble.

Re: Harry Dent: ‘Crash of a Lifetime’ Coming in 2024

question is how long will the Fed wait to step in (and why). IIRC there were only a few months to dump long bonds and buy stocks in 2020. They have the "legal" authority now that they didnt in 2009.

Tragic. Far right pushing pro-life and far left pushing masks/lockdown/no jabs no job/UBI-communism.
