Weekly Investment Insight 08302021

Focus Five

1.  “Narrow money supply is going off the scales. Yet at Jackson Hole it was never mentioned, except in a footnote. Equally incredible is the gullibility of the investment establishment knowing that money does matter yet was drawn into the Fed’s non-monetary narrative.”

This article considers how QE could be expanded over time as Rudolf von Havenstein and John Law parallels come into view.

2. “LOOK FOR INFLATION TO REMAIN ELEVATED & PERSISTENT!”

“Though Supply Chain issues may prove to be transitory (though many we suspect are permanent), inflation is not transitory for at least five secular reasons: 

1. Owner Occupied Rent (OER),

2. Labor Costs (Why bond yields rose on August’s NFP)

3. Import Costs

4. Financing Costs

5. Three Level Government Charges (Explosion in Taxation)”

4. “It’s hard to dispute that economic growth will weaken further with each future economic expansion. Unfortunately, such has been the case and likely will continue to be the case.”
