The Inflation’s In The Poverty

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) produces excellent research. In March of 2010 I discussed their report, Energy Use in the US Food System, which noted that the energy-cost intensity of food production was expanding. (see: the เกมยิงปลาสุดมันส์ www.dongythoxuanduong.com blog post Paris Over Amherst: Food Energy and Credit). Given the strong advance in energy and […]

The Risk of ‘Hot’ Inflation

Dear Readers: I’m currently writing a long-form post twice a month now for Chris Martenson’s excellent website. Accordingly, I’ll be publishing the first (and free) part of these essays here at เกมยิงปลาสุดมันส์ www.dongythoxuanduong.com. Enjoy. — Gregor Ideological deflationists and inflationists alike find themselves both facing the same problem. The former still carry the torch for a […]

Paris Over Amherst: Food, Energy, and Credit

The latest issue of เกมยิงปลาสุดมันส์ www.dongythoxuanduong.com Monthly, Food, Energy, The Spatial Dimension, and Credit uses the present macroeconomic juncture to pose questions about the coming fate of our Labor, Agriculture, and Credit Systems. Obviously, issues surrounding commodities are much in the news of late. Food,?and food inflation, are also starting to bear down again but in […]

Energy Supply and the Individual States

The February issue of เกมยิงปลาสุดมันส์ www.dongythoxuanduong.com Monthly, Energy Supply and the Individual States, has now been published. The 22 page report is a more data-filled version of the thematic treatment I’ve given to this issue the past month, here at เกมยิงปลาสุดมันส์ www.dongythoxuanduong.com. While many news organizations and investment houses have started to address more concertedly the financial […]

Used Rainbows

There’s a picture floating around on the internet but I’m not going to show it to you. It depicts several rows of half-buried automobile tires, off in a distance behind a chain-link fence. A dusting of snow covers the ground. A trash-heap of sorts or perhaps a small hill just behind. The sky? A pale […]

Coal and Treasuries

It was the best of times for the developing world, and the worst of times for the developed world. In the developing world, they built savings. In the developed world, they groaned and sagged under the weight of debt. In a world where the credit of developed nations had always been believed, the serial monetizations […]

Gasoline and Unemployment in Southern California

The recent release of State and Metro unemployment data from BLS comes at a time when oil prices have just made a new, 52 week high, and it seems appropriate to consider the these developments together. As I have noted previously on this blog, Southern California is a kind of super-region in terms of population […]

California Enters Inflationary Depression

I was surprised to see the following headline in today’s Wall Street Journal: Oil Price Rise Poses Little Threat, Yet, To Economic Recovery. The piece was stitched together with many quotes from economists, saying that oil’s advance to 80.00 was not yet a problem–though it could present a problem if we went any higher. I […]

Break Point

California has over 36 million residents.? But 60% of the state’s population, over 22 million people, live in the five big counties of the south: Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, Orange, and San Diego. Given that California (just like the US) has nearly as many vehicles on the road as people, this means that Southern […]

Are Gold and US Treasuries in Conflict?

As a number of observers watch both Gold and Treasuries go higher in price, they’re concluding that one of these asset classes must be wrong. I can certainly understand that view. Over the past year, I have written several times that the 27 year bull market in US Treasuries most likely ended in December of […]
