Too Early for “Inflation Bets”?

I OG0-093 exam dumps hurried into the local department store to grab1 some 1Z0-062 Exam Questions last minute Chirsmas gifts. I 300-075 vce looked at all the people and grumbled2 to 1Z0-808 Dumps myself. I would be in here forever and I just 1Z0-808 Dumps OG0-093 exam dumps had so much to do. Chirsmas was beginning to become such a drag. I kinda wished that I 300-075 vce could just sleep through 1Z0-808 Dumps Chirsmas. But I hurried the best 1Z0-808 Dumps I could through all the people to the toy department. Prepexamwell 300-075 vce Once again I kind of mumbled3 to myself at the prices of all these toys, and wondered 1Z0-062 Exam Questions if the grandkids would even play whit4 300-070 dumps them. I found myself in the doll 1Z0-808 Dumps aisle5. Out of the corner of my eye I saw a little OG0-093 exam dumps boy about 5 holding a lovely doll.He kept touching6 her 1Z0-062 Exam Questions hair 300-075 vce 300-075 vce and he Prepexamwell OG0-093 exam dumps held OG0-093 exam dumps 70-480 dumps her so 70-480 dumps gently. I could not seem to help myself. I just kept loking over 70-480 dumps at the little boy and wondered who the doll was for. I 300-075 vce watched him turn to a woman and he called his 300-075 vce aunt by name OG0-093 exam dumps and said, “Are you 300-075 vce sure I don’t have enough money?” She replied a 1Z0-062 Exam Questions bit impatiently, “You 1Z0-808 Dumps know that you don’t have enough money Prepexamwell for it.” The aunt told the little boy not to go anywhere that she had to go and get some other things and would 1Z0-062 Exam Questions 70-480 dumps be back in Prepexamwell a few minutes. And then she left the aisle. The 1Z0-808 Dumps 300-070 dumps boy continued 1Z0-808 Dumps to hold the doll. After a bit I asked the boy who the doll was for. He said, “It is the doll my sister wanted so badly for Chirsmas. She 300-070 dumps just 300-070 dumps knew 300-070 dumps that Santa would bring it. “I told him that maybe 300-075 vce Santa was going 70-480 dumps to bring it . He said, “No, Santa OG0-093 exam dumps can’t go where my Prepexamwell sister is…. I 1Z0-062 Exam Questions OG0-093 exam dumps have to give the doll to my Mama to take to her. “I asked him where his siter was. He OG0-093 exam dumps looked at me with the saddest OG0-093 exam dumps eyes and said, “She was gone to be with Jesus.

My Daddy says that Mamma is going to have to 1Z0-808 Dumps go be with her.” My heart nearly stopped beating. Then the boy looked at me again and said, “I told my Daddy to tell my Mama not to go 1Z0-062 Exam Questions yet. I told him to tell her to wait till I got back from the store.” Then he asked me Prepexamwell if i wanted Prepexamwell to see his picture. I 70-480 dumps told him I’d love to. He pulled out some picture he’d 1Z0-062 Exam Questions had 300-070 dumps taken 1Z0-808 Dumps at the front of the store. 1Z0-808 Dumps He said, 1Z0-808 Dumps “I 300-070 dumps want my Mama to take OG0-093 exam dumps this with 300-070 dumps her so the dosen’t ever forget me. I love my Mama so very much Prepexamwell and I wish she dind 70-480 dumps not have to leave me.But Daddy says she 300-070 dumps will need Prepexamwell OG0-093 exam dumps to be with my sister.” I OG0-093 exam dumps saw that the little boy had lowered his head and had grown so qiuet. 300-070 dumps While he was 300-075 vce not Prepexamwell looking I 1Z0-808 Dumps reached into my purse and pilled out a handful of 1Z0-808 Dumps bills. I asked the little boy, “Shall we count that miney 1Z0-062 Exam Questions one more time?” He grew excited and said, “Yes,I just know 300-075 vce it has to be enough.” So I slipped my money in Prepexamwell with his and we began to count it . Of course 70-480 dumps it Prepexamwell was plenty for the doll. He softly said, “Thank you Prepexamwell Jesus for giving me enough money.” Then the boy said, “I just asked Jesus to give me enough money to buy this doll so Mama can take it with her 70-480 dumps to give my sister. And he heard my prayer. I wanted to ask him give for enough to OG0-093 exam dumps 300-075 vce buy my Mama a white rose, but I didn’t ask Prepexamwell him, 300-075 vce but 70-480 dumps he gave me enough to buy the doll 300-070 dumps and Prepexamwell a rose for my Mama. She loves white rose so much. “In 300-070 dumps a few minutes the aunt came back and 300-070 dumps I wheeled my cart away. 1Z0-062 Exam Questions I could not keep from thinking about the little boy as I finished 1Z0-062 Exam Questions my shoppong in a ttally different spirit than when I 70-480 dumps had started. And I kept remembering a story 300-075 vce I had 70-480 dumps seen in the newspaper several days earlier Prepexamwell about a drunk driver hitting a car and killing7 a little girl and 70-480 dumps the Mother was 1Z0-062 Exam Questions in serious condition. The family 1Z0-062 Exam Questions was deciding on whether to remove the 1Z0-062 Exam Questions life support. Now surely this little 1Z0-062 Exam Questions boy OG0-093 exam dumps did not belong 1Z0-808 Dumps with that story.Two days later I read in the 1Z0-062 Exam Questions paper where the family 300-075 vce had disconnected 1Z0-808 Dumps the life support 70-480 dumps and the young woman had died. I could 300-070 dumps not forget the little boy 70-480 dumps and just kept wondering if the two were somehow connected. Later that day, I 300-070 dumps could not help myself and I went out and bought aome 300-075 vce white roses and took them to OG0-093 exam dumps the funeral home 300-070 dumps where the yough woman was .And there she was holding a lovely white rose, the beautiful doll, and the picture of the little boy in the store. I left there in tears, 70-480 dumps thier life changed forever. The love that little boy had for his little sisiter and his mother was overwhel. And in a split8 second a drunk driver had ripped9 the life of that little boy to pieces.

After 35 years of waiting… so many false signals… so often deceived… so often disappointed… bond bears gathered on rooftops as though awaiting the Second Coming.

Many times, investors have said to themselves, “This is it! This is the end of the Great Bull Market in Bonds!”

And then, at the appointed hour, expecting the rapture… they took the leap of faith… only to come crashing down on the rocks below.

The Trump Trade

In 2008, in 2012, in 2014… Each time, the market made fools of them.

Now, weary… wary… and nearly broke… they make their bets as though they were setting an explosive charge at a federal building.

“Bond rout accelerates as Trump stimulus vow spurs inflation bets,” reports the Financial Times.

More than $1 trillion has been clipped from global bond values in the last week.

Meanwhile, the Dow continues to move up… closing in on 19,000… and a new all-time high.

This is the “Trump trade” – the bet that the incoming administration will be good for stock prices and bad for bonds.

It will be good for stocks, they believe, because “The Donald” proposes to lower corporate taxes, remove regulation that stifles certain sectors, and reward other sectors – infrastructure and the military – with more money.

RELATED: Why Millionaires Take This Mans Warning Seriously...

It will be bad for bonds because all this new spending will have to come from somewhere.


The federal government’s budget deficit is already running at 3% (of GDP). You can see where that leads. The economy is growing at only a 1% rate. That means it is adding three times as much debt as output.


The Trump plan calls for increased spending… while cutting taxes. Let’s see… Lower taxes plus even higher spending… hmmm. We’re getting a deja-vu feeling all over again.

As colleague Chris Lowe points out to readers of our global “big trends” advisory, Inner Circle, estimates for the U.S. government spending under a Trump presidency call for an increase in the national debt over the next decade of $5.3 trillion.

Blithering Nonsense?

Those are the dots that we’re looking at. And what we see are higher rates of inflation.

We’re not so sure about high stock prices, though. We suspect that the stock market is going to take a tumble in the not-too-distant future.

As to bonds, however, the “Trump Trade” looks to us like a sure winner.

But wait. It can’t be that easy. Even the newspapers, major investment advisers, and cockamamie, Nobel prize-winning economists see the same thing. They’re all recommending the “Trump Trade.”

And when everyone sees the same thing, we must all be going blind.

One of the objections to the “more inflation” hypothesis comes from our friend and colleague David Stockman, who served as President Reagan’s chief budget adviser.

He believes the “reflation trade” (that is, betting that more phony “stimulus” will continue to boost the market) is for chumps.


Because the fiscal stimulus program won’t happen. It will run headlong into the black hole of U.S. government finances… and disappear.

He has a point. Just because “The Donald” calls for more spending, it doesn’t mean Congress will go along. Here’s David:

Folks, the whole Trump reflation trade is based on blithering nonsense. Uncle Sam will be stimulating exactly nothing in the years ahead because he is dead broke.

Moreover, even before President Obama ambles out of the White House, suitcase in hand, the Trump-Ryan-regulars-Tea Party gang will soon be lined up in circular fashion firing vehemently.

But it won’t be at the ballyhooed stimulus; it will be at each other as the looming expiration (March 15) of the nation’s $20 trillion public debt ceiling crashes upon the smoldering ruins of the Beltway Establishment.

Even without an assumed recession, the updated Congressional Budget Office deficit projections will soar past $1 trillion annually by the later years of Trump’s (only) term.

Yes, the feds are broke. And yes, Republicans did block previous efforts at fiscal stimulus. But we wouldn’t give up on the “reflation trade” completely.

This may or may not turn out to be the best time to refinance your mortgage and jump off…

But it is time to look for the ladder… More tomorrow.
