Markets

Stay current and up-to-date with every ebb and flow of the markets, with articles from the Dent Research team. Our editors cover all markets, foreign and domestic, and all things trading, including: investment strategies, stocks, economic volatility and risk.

Readers of Economy & Markets should know the importance of investment systems. Our editors lay out several benefits of a well-defined, data-driven, and rules-based investment strategy, on a regular basis.

It’s often said in sports that “the best defense is a good offense.” When it comes to investing and stocks, this means focusing on companies that produce floods of cash and that “pay us first.”

The Dent Research team also examines the rise (and falls) of the world’s currencies, which of course includes bitcoin and blockchain, as the cryptocurrency market has taken the world by storm in a relatively short period of time.

Gold was a great standard for monetary systems up until the industrial revolution, but today, it isn’t representative of the information-based economy and it’s too costly to be a medium of exchange. But so many still hold on to gold’s value for a number of reasons, which is why our editors follow gold’s every move.

Real estate is different than other consumer sectors of spending. It’s obviously not consumable like food or clothing. But it’s not like a durable product either, like cars and washing machines. Real estate, with the exception of natural disasters or human insanity (arson, wars, etc.), tends to last forever.

Lastly, the Dent Research team covers many of the leading foreign markets, where you can learn all about the global banking crisis, China and what’s going on in many other foreign markets.

Why Gift Cards?

It’s the day after Christmas and, if you’re like three-quarters of Americans, you either gave or received a gift card. Have you ever asked yourself, “Why?” I hate stories that start, “When I was a kid,” but indulge me… When I...

I (Sort Of) Want an Airstream for Christmas

I’ve written for years that I want a towable trailer, but not just any one. I want an Airstream. My wife thinks they look like rolling baked potatoes due to their aluminum outer skin, so she calls them Bak-o-Foil. As...

We Need More Global Shopping

Years ago, I can remember my mom coming home from a day of shopping around the holidays and announcing that she’d saved over $600. My dad immediately asked the obvious question. How much had that savings cost? As we peruse...

Housing Bubbles Are Bad for the Economy…

How can the same houses go up far faster than inflation for decades, and that possibly be good for an economy? It only benefits older people who bought earlier, and the affluent who buy the most expensive ones that...

Growth of the Asian Tigers

I always remind people and economists that Japan was the first Asian Tiger – the first to urbanize rapidly on an S-Curve to $40,000+ GDP per capita PPP and DC (developing country) status in just under 30 years. When...

Gold’s Big Bottom

I'm finally caught up on sleep after Australia, but I'm still thinking about all the good times from that trip. You get to meet so many smart, innovative people when you go out on these speaking tours, and I...

Avoid the Boring Hack

Years ago, Samsung came out with a voice-controlled television. My wife was appalled. Who in the right mind would want a device that sits in the house and listens to everything that goes on?! As it turns out, lots of...

The Great Boomer Migration

Years ago, I had to adjust my real estate model for di-ers, as homes last near forever and di-ers are forced sellers that can overwhelm and offset the younger peak buyers into age 42-43 in recent years. That’s why Japan’s...

Golf is Back!

Most of our pictures are on the walls, and a lot of the blue tape is gone. Our new home now smells like our furniture and cleaning solution instead of cardboard. I’m not sure the trash men took the...

China Has Biggest Corporate Debt Bubble

The first global debt bubble came from 2001-08, rising from $77 tr (trillion) to $180 tr. Most of that was in the developed countries (DCs). The second bubble, based on easy money from DC QE policies to bail out...
