Quotes

...For example, and in response to Political Greenwashing: US Exports Coal Pollution to Europe; What About China? reader Over Exposed writes " Excellent example of a complete and utter failure of the free market to deal with pollution ".I see and hear this every day. I would have hoped that people would have learned by now what a "free market" is and isn't.Chinese State Owned Enterprises (SOEs) are not "free markets"Chinese growth targets at any cost are not "free markets"Interest rate manipulation in the US have nothing to do with "free markets"Chinese and Swiss National Bank currency manipulations have nothing to do with "free markets"Ben Bernanke's and Janet Yellen's 2% inflation target - horrendously applied - and ignoring asset bubbles are as far removed from "free markets" as you can get.Complete fools blame the "free market" for problems 100% caused precisely because we do not have "free markets". Popular Myths Contrary to popular myth, free market libertarians do not support slavery, anarchy, or pollution. Rather, we strongly believe in property rights and human rights. No one can own anyone else. No one can kill you, steal your goods, or damage your property. Laws and regulations that protect property rights and prevent fraud are welcome.It is amazing how people clamor for more regulation to cure problems caused by regulation and excessive interference in free markets. Can We Please Try "Free Markets"? We've tried everything else, and it did not work. Can we please try "free markets" with the minimum number of regulations and laws needed to preserve property rights, preserved human rights, and prevent fraud?Sadly, I suspect the answer is no. Neither vested interests nor jackasses who have no idea what is really going on, want "free markets". It's a powerful combination, and we all lose because of it.Mike "Mish" Shedlockhttp://globaleconomicanalysis.blogspot.com Mike "Mish" Shedlock is a registered investment advisor representative for SitkaPacific Capital Management. Sitka Pacific is an asset management firm whose goal is strong performance and low volatility, regardless of market direction."
...Interestingly, the concentration of delinquent debt to income has a negative 0.3 correlation. In a footnote the study reports " The correlation between average household income and average amount of debt past due (amount required to become current on that debt) is even lower at -0.1 ." I called the Urban Institute and asked for an explanation as to how the percentage in collection can be so much bigger than the percentage past due...
...The yuan is the one major currency that is allegedly undervalued , but only " modestly ". Mathematics Overvalued-undervalued judgements are generally on a basket of currencies basis.But it is not mathematically possible for all those currencies to be 5-20% overvalued against all the other currencies in the same basket. Even if it was possible, based on precise timings and currency fluctuations, the idea that the IMF can fine tune currency valuations to the nth degree as it has done is absurd. All Currencies Overvalued Nonetheless, the IMF appears to be on target with all these "overvalued" assessments, not against each other, but against gold, and by far greater percentages.Mike "Mish" Shedlockhttp://globaleconomicanalysis.blogspot.comMike "Mish" Shedlock is a registered investment advisor representative for SitkaPacific Capital Management.

...Russian news agency Interfax reported a dramatic increase in the number of Ukrainian refugees seeking refuge over the border in Russia. "The UkrainianUkrainian government officials were seeking to encircle the city, really squeeze the remaining pro-Russian separatist forces that had fallen back there since being driven out of other strongholds across Eastern Ukraine" said CNN's Phil Black, reporting from a congested road in Donetsk while scores of people attempted to leave...
