Hyperbole or timely reminder ? You decide!

1) Stocks are more overvalued today than they were in 1929
2) Stocks fell by nearly 90% in 1929… and took decades to recover.
3) Adjusted for inflation, stocks have returned just 1.7% per year since 1929.

How #Uber Got #Lost


Source: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/23/business/how-uber-got-lost.html
In combing through documents, interviewing opponents and talking to more than 200 current and former employees while researching my book, what came up again and again was this sense of a public-private divide — that Mr. Kalanick had built a start-up that thrived on venture #investment, #blitzkrieg #expansion tactics and an ethically questionable aggressive streak, but that the playbook made little sense for a publicly traded entity.
...
Instead of moving the hubs, the local Uber managers decided to pay off the #cops, with bribes of around 500,000 rupiah (about $30).
...
The fixes didn’t come soon enough. Mr. #Kalanick’s product team eventually improved identity verification and #security in the app for Brazilian customers, after intense pressure from product and marketing leaders. But not before at least 16 drivers in #Brazil were murdered.

The Rothschild Family

Baron Rothschild: “the time to buy is when there’s blood in the streets.”

in short: be good citizens.

NYT reveals Deutsche Bank loaned more than 2 mn. dollars to Trump, despite warnings


Over the years, Drumpf used loans provided by Deutsche Bank to build skyscrapers and other high-end properties, the Times reported. For the German bank, its relationship with Drumpf was key in building its investment-banking business, the report said.

Drumpf’s relationship with Deutsche Bank has come under scrutiny in the U.S. The New York attorney general’s office and the Democratic-controlled Intelligence Committee and Financial Services Committee in Congress have been looking to the president’s financial ties with the German bank.

Charles Hugh Smith nails it

But all systems eventually track an S-Curve of rapid growth, maturation and depletion/decline, and surpluses diminish: the pie stops expanding and starts shrinking. There's less to go around, and suddenly the political squabbling intensifies as every elite and every constituency seeks to preserve their slice of the pie at the expense of others.

On the optician-turned-billionaire, Herbert Wertheim


His fortune comes not from some flash of entrepreneurial brilliance or dogged devotion to career, but from a lifetime of prudent do-it-yourself buy-and-hold investing.

“My thing is,” Wertheim says as he reflects on his long career, “I wanted to be able to have free time. To me, having time is the most precious thing.”

“You take what you earn with the sweat of your brow, then you take a percentage of that and you invest it in other people’s labor,” Wertheim says of his near-religious devotion to tithing his wages into the stock market.

Immobilien als Altersvorsorge: Worauf kommt es dabei wirklich an?

Angesichts
niedriger Zinsen und der weit verbreiteten Angst vor einer Geldentwertung
gelten Immobilien als ideale Altersvorsorge und so feiert das „Betongold“
derzeit Hochkonjunktur. Auch das Gefühl, in einen echten Wert zu investieren,
sorgt bei vielen Menschen für eine gewisse Sorgenfreiheit. Aber welche Faktoren
sind bei der Wahl der Immobilie als Altersvorsorge wichtig und welche
Fallstricke gilt es zu umgehen? Welche Aspekte sind beim Hauskauf und -bau
wichtig und welche Finanzierungsmöglichkeiten gibt es?

Warum werden Eigenheime als

Altersvorsorgen immer beliebter?


Schon heute benutzt mehr als die Hälfte der Deutschen eine Immobilie als
Vorsorgeprodukt, womit das Wohneigentum deutlich populärer ist als jede andere
Form der Altersvorsorge. Das hat natürlich verschiedene Gründe: Wer in ein

money is like inverted pain system - Geld ist wie ein invertiertes Schmerzsystem im (Gesellschafts)Körper

Money is a little like an inverted pain system in the company-body: It does especially hurt when it goes missing.

That is, when laws and regulations come and companies take the implementation of these seriously-when it starts to hurt financially.

Money is also lacking – if banks give all sorts of reasons – why they cannot finance a “productive Investment“. (only 8% of the newly created money (digitally by private banks and ... Show more...
 

Trump declares loyalist David Malpass the new leader of World Bank


A European diplomatic source said the Drumpf administration had notified several capitals of the Malpass nomination, adding that European shareholders of the bank were not likely to block it.

Kim, first nominated by former U.S. president Barack Obama in 2012, stepped down on Feb. 1 to join private equity fund Global Infrastructure Partners, more than three years before his term ended, amid differences with the Drumpf administration over climate change and development resources.

The first thing to understand about the proposed “Green New Deal” is that the first New Deal not only failed to end the Great Depression but made it more severe and longer-lasting. Its only “success” was in creating endless patronage opportunities and levers of #political bribery and #extortion for the #Democratic Party, opportunities that the #Republican Party happily embraced whenever it could to expand its own power and wealth in the succeeding decades.

While I don't have any predictions for 2019 (why look any dumber than I have to?), I do have a couple of thoughts on the economy, markets, globalization, etc. Here are a few of the key issues confronting humanity:

1. The war being waged by Corporate Power (Globalization / Open Borders) to eradicate democracy and the power of nation-states to control their own destiny. Democracy ceases to exist in a corporate-controlled globalized system of governance; the sole structure that enables a citizen to have political and economic agency is the nation-state.

Try voting for a U.N. resolution or E.U. regulation. Sorry, pal, there are no elections or representation of the rabble in globalized governance. Globalization destroys democracy and the agency of the citizenry. That's its goal.

Global corporations seek to destroy any and all barriers to their power and profits, and globalization / tax havens / Op... Show more...
