We Rode Out… Unharmed
We spent the night at a hotel in the nearby village of Molinos and then drove back to see the new farm. We hoped that our spirits might have revived after a good night’s sleep…or maybe some helpful leprechauns had put the place in order...
The New Ranch House Is Ruined
Now, the house has no electricity, no plumbing, no running water, no roof, no windows, no doors, no flooring. All it has are naked dirt walls. And those are falling down.

Is Trump a Genius?
Most public figures are, at least in part, scoundrels. It would be an amazing thing — especially in America — if Mr Trump were an exception. He’s part of what makes it such a pleasure to be an American. The show never ends…

Will the Fed Stab Investors in the Back?
Warsh — who resigned as Fed governor in 2011 — says he’d like to get the Fed in position to fight the next downturn…by raising rates now. Instead of having investors’ backs…ready to buy assets when markets turn down…under Warsh, the Fed may become investors’ worst enemy.
US debt hole
No Way Out of This Black Hole of Debt
Why can’t Congress pass a serious tax reform measure? Because the feds need money. They can only get money from the people who have it — the rich. But the rich control the government and its tax-writing committees. So, the feds are stuck. And so is the entire economy.
US economy
The Greatest Mystery of the 21st Century
US economy is running at about one-half to one-third of the rate of growth during the 1960s and 1970s. And by our estimation, more than half the country has been in a depression for the entire 21st century.

How to Starve the Washington Beast
Back in Washington, at the National Taxpayers Union in the 1970s, we saw the dots. And we connected them. Back then, consumer price inflation was rising…as the feds financed more and more of their programs with printing press money. How could this be stopped? ‘Starve the beast’ was the idea.
US tax cuts
Another Win for the ‘One Percent’
Here come the feds to the rescue again. They’re offering a tax cut for the middle class. Not for us rich guys. No way! Under Team Trump’s tax plan, our business income, currently taxed at 35%, would be taxed at 20%. Hey, that’s good news for us. But how does that help the middle class? It won’t.

Trump’s Tax Plan Is a Fraud
Neither corporations, nor the middle class, are big taxpayers. The big taxpayers are the rich — the people the Trump team has promised not to favour with a tax cut. And even if you did give the rich a tax cut — which is what this tax proposal really is — it would be very unlikely to result in additional growth.
economist mismanagement
100 Years of Mismanagement
There must be some dark corner of Hell warming up for modern, mainstream economists. They helped bring on the worst bubble ever…with their theories of efficient markets and modern portfolio management. Then, when trouble came, they made it worse.

How to Drain Wealth and Liberty
Meanwhile, back on the World Wide Web comes news that the US economy is not the only thing being undermined by the feds’ win-lose deals. So is the oldest win-win deal on the planet: the family.
US in crisis
Trump Can’t Stop America from Going Broke
As a result, the US empire is headed to bankruptcy…or to Hell. It would take a remarkably talented and determined leader to alter the direction of the march. Donald J Trump will not do that job; instead, he busies himself on Twitter to keep his fans distracted.
Donald Trump
Why Donald Trump Is President
People grumble. But few understand what is going on. Instead, they are easily distracted by debates over monuments…kneeling athletes…red versus blue…celebrity newscasters…and so on. And that’s why Mr Donald J Trump is the president. For this system to continue, someone needs to divert the masses with petty squabbles…while the insiders pick their pockets.
US stocks
A Bitter Winter for US Stocks
After so many years of ultra-low interest rates… and easy credit from the Fed... this whole economy is going into reverse. We are in our fourth decade of the fake-money system. And its distortions and corruptions are now catching up to us.

Dow 50,000? Why Not?!
Yes, reflation is coming. And yes, this is an economy that can’t tolerate higher inflation/interest rates. Then with no debt ceiling over Congress…and no hold-the-line president in the White House — the sky’s the limit. Dow 50,000! Why not?!
