central banks fighting off the bubble from completely bursting





Loathe them.

They’ve hijacked our economy and the markets and taken away all our power to make sound financial, investment, and business decisions.

Sure, you’ve got to hand it to them: they pulled us away from a depression, thanks to their trillions in stimulus. I mean, QE has had a huge impact on the economy. Two percent growth isn’t great, but it’s a hell of a lot better than a depression.

But in the process, they’ve separated the economy and markets from any fundamentals.

There’s no rhyme or reason why the markets should be as high as they are, yet we are, Dow breaking 26,000…

Demographically, the economy should be slowing down – with the exception of the blip in births that recently hit on a 46-year lag, yet here we are…

Companies aren’t making productive investments in their businesses. Rather, they’re buying back shares, and so prices go up…

Worst of all, there’s no precedent here. There’s nothing to look back on and say, “well this is what happened before, so here’s what we can expect!”

Essentially, there’s no way to make sound financial, investment, or business decisions anymore because the tools we could once use are now useless.

So, in my latest video, I talk about this and explore what kind of world we face ahead. Do demographics matter anymore? What about other fundamentals? Watch now.

Harry studied economics in college in the ’70s, but found it vague and inconclusive. He became so disillusioned by the state of the profession that he turned his back on it. Instead, he threw himself into the burgeoning New Science of Finance, which married economic research and market research and encompassed identifying and studying demographic trends, business cycles, consumers’ purchasing power and many, many other trends that empowered him to forecast economic and market changes.
