Financial Apocalypse? What Financial Apocalypse?

Oh those Doomers! You know who I'm talking about! Those negative people who are constantly fear-mongering about the end of the world. Going on and on about how bad things are going to get, and how awful life is going to be in the future. Why, at their worst, Doomers are painting a picture of a world in flames!

These Doomers are so obsessed with their fear-mongering that it has almost become, well, cultish.

TFMR Podcast - Friday, May 2

I seem to recall promising you a crazy, wild and volatile week. Turns out that was a bit of an understatement. And now, with all of the Ukraine stuff coming to a head, next week may be even more crazy. No rest for a weary Turd.

Doing The Silver Pokey

"...And you turn yourself around. That's what it's all about!" If you want to find out "what it's all about", I strongly suggest you come in and read this post. 

The Missing Debate

Last week, I posted the podcast of John Batchelor with Stephen F. Cohen and it was unanimously well-received. As such, I thought it wise to post last night's follow-up interview as soon as it became publicly available today.

TFMR Podcast - Wednesday, April 30

What a day. The SPIN and MOPE are back to the "green shoots" levels not seen since 2010. Back then, everything was rosy and The Fed was never going to have to monetize another dollar of debt. $2,800,000,000,000 later and...
