Hippity-Hoppity, Jackass On His Way

130

For your holiday weekend listening pleasure, here's 75 minutes of fresh Jackass, recorded yesterday in our A2A webinar format.

Among the items discussed over the course of the event:

  • the long-term significance of yuan-denominated crude oil futures
  • Fed policy and long-term interest rates
  • the US trade deficit and its impact
  • the possibility/likelihood of a Russian "silver ruble"
  • what impact de-dollarization may have upon US expats living abroad
  • the definition of the term "global reset"
  • and much, much more!

Thanks again to The Jackass for volunteering his time and sharing his wisdom.

Maybe China & Deutsche Bank

Maybe China will save the day with DB.

' Just read the red state took a stake in the sinking ship

To cover their derivatives?

Forest City Brewery aims to make pricey beer with gold

Forest City Brewery has a special beer in the works that will be brewed with gold, but if you want to try it it's going to cost you.

2008 Redux-Cubed

If Deutsche Bank collapses, it will set off a catastrophic chain reaction of counter-party defaults. This would be similar to what occurred in 2008 when AIG defaulted on counter-party derivative liabilities in which Goldman Sachs was the counter-party. While it’s impossible to prove without access to the inside books at DB and at the ECB, I believe the primary driver behind the LIBOR-OIS rate spread reflects a growing reluctance by banks to lend to other banks for a duration longer than overnight. This reluctance is derived from growing fear of DB’s deteriorating financial condition, as reflected by its stock price.

agree Matt

Mine is in process-I have 3 LLC's, I sold real estate, several K-1's, contributions plus property contributed,

however, I get screwed by the new law which limits state taxes and bring in a 24k std deduction and I lose the personal exemption like others.

our leaders are dumb fucks.

The 2013 obamacare taxes were supposed to raise 250 billion a year mostly higher income taxpayers. There was never an accounting for that

thats the beautiful thing going for politicians-they are not accountable.

Just finished my taxes

...and as always ended in a fight with my wife. It isn't anything she did. I'm just a very grumpy SOB.

My tax return is 57 pages long. I had to report $1.71 of income in one account, and $1.89 income in another account. I paid taxes in Canada. The forms ask you to answer all kinds of weird questions targeted at various groups that have gotten tax breaks (No, I didn't become blind in 2017, No, I didn't receive Nazi persecution payments, No, I didn't sell mineral rights on land I own). It is such a waste of time and money.

from ZH...

Monday, April 2

  • 09:45 AM Markit Flash US manufacturing PMI, March final (consensus 55.7, last 55.7)
  • 10:00 AM ISM manufacturing, March (GS 59.0, consensus 60.0, last 60.8): We estimate the ISM manufacturing index fell 1.8pt to 59.0 in the March report. Regional manufacturing surveys deteriorated on net in March, and much of the weakness was pronounced in mid-to-late month surveys. Our manufacturing survey tracker—which is scaled to the ISM index—declined 1.6pt to 58.4.
  • 10:00 AM Construction spending, February (GS +0.6%, consensus +0.4%, last flat): We estimate construction spending increased 0.6% in February, following an unchanged reading in January that reflected firmer public nonresidential and private residential construction primarily offset by weaker private nonresidential and public residential construction.
  • 06:00 PM Minneapolis Fed President Kashkari (FOMC non-voter) speaks: Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari will hold a town hall on monetary policy and the economy with university students in Duluth, Minnesota. Audience Q&A is expected.
