    Tweet of the Day

    I’ve posted it here before but I had an Econ professor at ou that taught this monetary theory as well, he used it to explain why our debt didn’t matter. When I pointed out the pitfalls, probably in a less than professional manner ;), the guy was a fool, he asked me to not return to class. I...

    Bye Bye Trade War? China Plans $1 Trillion Buying Spree to Reduce US Trade Deficit

    What I was referring to was $1t over 3 years with progressive growth, the 3rd year was projected at $500b, anything beyond that, imo, your bringing in so many variables (political and others) that it’d be hard to put any stock in those numbers. The entirety of the report carried out 10 years...

    Bye Bye Trade War? China Plans $1 Trillion Buying Spree to Reduce US Trade Deficit

    It’s a 200 page report most folks look at the trade numbers, as I suspect you and a few others understand, that’s the tip of the iceberg when you’re Looking at overall economic impact whether it’s good or bad. I went back a read the first few pages of this thread, prior to joining in, a lot of...

    'Inside Edition' crew gets robbed while reporting on San Francisco Bay Area crime

    And my response was to the judge’s comment, I understood it wasn’t you. I’m just surprised a federal judge in Ca, or any sitting judge ftm, would be that reckless with his words. That’s a pretty stinging indictment of an entire police force and also unwarranted. Again, when the city deserves...

    Bye Bye Trade War? China Plans $1 Trillion Buying Spree to Reduce US Trade Deficit

    So the last couple of weeks I’ve been stepping outside of my comfort zone and I’ve been working with the California Trucking Association on a couple of projects. During this time I saw an independent report on the trade deal on economic impact, since most everything comes through the ports and...

    'Inside Edition' crew gets robbed while reporting on San Francisco Bay Area crime

    That’s not true, the sf da’s office prosecute a lot of these cases unfortunately the number they are able to prosecute is only around 2%, around 700 last year, of all breakins because nobody ever sees or hears anything. The SFPD takes a report on all breakins they don’t have the manpower to...

    'Inside Edition' crew gets robbed while reporting on San Francisco Bay Area crime

    I bi@tch and moan about SF as much as anyone, I don’t go often, mainly, because I despise putting money into the hands of the politicians that have ruined wide swaths of the city. That said here’s some tips, if you travel to SF try not to have a car, if you do, make it a car with a trunk...

    Wealth tax

    What I find interesting (or infuriating) is that back in the 09-11 timeframe Obama actually tried to move the needle on this, ever so slightly, certainly not what I’ve described but movement and Republicans, most Democrats, including ‘so called’ conservatives fought him tooth and nail death tax...

    Bye Bye Trade War? China Plans $1 Trillion Buying Spree to Reduce US Trade Deficit

    Just a little more on this China has historically had a financial structure that consisted of the state aka the people’s bank of China and oversaw the 3 regulatory commissions, banking insurance and securities. What @SLVRBK pointed out (shadow banking or services that blurred the lines between...

    Bye Bye Trade War? China Plans $1 Trillion Buying Spree to Reduce US Trade Deficit

    It would take a lot more time to go into details and ftmp, it would fall on deaf ears so in a nutshell. You’re spot on, even with all the regulatory changes China has made the lingering one that this addresses is that the auditing will be done independent of the state. This will have significant...

    Bye Bye Trade War? China Plans $1 Trillion Buying Spree to Reduce US Trade Deficit

    I’ve posted that China’s economy is always on the brink but it’s not something I discovered, I’m not that bright. It’s well known just not well publicized. This agreement should create a foundation that solidifies the building as it goes up.

    They’re not today but in a bizzaro world sort of way this agreement could facilitate that happening.
