Call to the Bernanke Federal Reserve: Round up the Debt!

Sir John Templeton's sentiment that never before in U.S. history has our government and its citizens accumulated the level of financial debt as we have recently was referenced in my February 28th, 2007 article.

Strategies for the Coming Inflation of 2009-2010

The inflation that I believe may throttle though our economy in the late 2008-2010 period may not be the first inflationary economy many of us have ever seen. There is widespread commentary these days about the similarities between the stagflation/inflation that transpired in the 1970's, and what may be starting to happen in that manner in 2008 and going forward.

Stock Prices and the End of Disinflation

The disinflation we have experienced in our economy from 1982-2007 (until what I call the silent inflation of the last couple years turned into a more evident broader inflation in recent months) has been in my opinion one of the major underpinnings of the long term bull market in equities during much of the former period.

Don't Fight Yesterday's Investment Battle: Why Betting on Last Year's Bull Market Always Fails

Just when a new bull market in a category of investments (stocks or commodities, etc.) is percolating to the top, investors may still be immersed in the psychology of investing in the previous bull market's most favored investment. As the maturing trend dies out, investors may still try to find reasons to invest in that trend, even though it may be actually reversing, with some investors playing yesterday's game. This may happen just when the long-term trend for the mature trend may have turned down.
