The Bank of England meeting on June 24th finishes this round of major central bank meetings.  At its last meeting, Bailey & Co reduced the weekly bond-buying.  The extension of social restrictions well into July provides added reason to be cautious, though economic activity is accelerating and consumer prices are rising faster than the medium-…

Diamonds Don't Just have to be a Girl's Best Friend

February 09, 2021
I fully get that many savers are looking for an alternative to stocks and bonds, which seem terribly over-valued. There are almost $16 trillion of negative-yielding bonds in the world.  Despite the rise in the US 10-year bond, the yield is below the current rate of inflation.  What appears to be a mostly liquidity-driven rally has lifted equity va…

While investors are musing about the final form the US tax changes and the Brexit negotiations, cyber-currency interest has been bolstered by Venezuela's announcement over the weekend.  President Maduro said that Venezuela would issue a digital currency.  It could be the first sovereign to do so, which would seem to undermine the decentralized…
