HAS BRUSSELS KILLED CLIFF RICHARD?: Some Monday morning news
Here's some news:
Calculated Risk - demographics and GDP. Ignore demographics at your own peril.
Liz Ann Sonders - I would have told you to quit piddling your frilly pink panties, but Jeffrey Kleintop came along and fucked up my entire market report. This week's report is shitty because that clown Kleintop had to insert a bearish "holy fuck sell everything" call at the end of every single paragraph. Liz, tell Kleintop to go fuck himself and stay away from your reports in future, you're so much better than him.
Gavyn Davies - how low can interest rates go? It would be kinda interesting if it turned out, after all, that rates can go below zero and stay there - then again, real rates are already below zero everywhere, so why aren't we seeing cash hoarding already, Gavyn? And I do like the idea that negative rates are a tax on wealth: it seems like a way to use market forces to combat the Piketty problem.
Mining.com - the new GFMS gold survey. I'll have to look for an article that actually has a functioning link to the survey.
Qwghlm.com - the Daily Mail-o-matic. A Daily Mail headline generator: not as good as you'd think, but it still turns out some real gems. Here's some examples:
COULD GYPSIES GIVE YOUR CHILDREN CANCER?
ARE BRUSSELS BUREAUCRATS GIVING YOUR MORTGAGE SWINE FLU?
WILL CHANNEL 4 KILL YOU?
