- There never seems to be a lack of ways to try and get around the system, but it makes us very nervous when the officials watching the sheep don’t even realize they are being fleeced.
- There has been more talk by the Treasury about very-long dated bonds; what does that really look like?
- If you thought the path to healthcare reform was a difficult one, you need to also look at how difficult tax reform may prove to be.
- The link between consumer confidence and the current presidential approval rating may prove sour for markets. The current dichotomy of high confidence and low approval would tend to suggest a poor S&P 500 return over the next 12 months.
- Finally, the relationship between hedge fund money and the president is very interesting; without Robert Mercer, there may have been no President Trump.
