AMERICA MUST CHOOSE THE ROAD AHEAD (77 Page FULL REPORT .pdf)
An Election for the Sole of America

AMERICA MUST CHOOSE THE ROAD AHEAD (26 Page COMMENTARY ONLY .pdf)
An Election for the Sole of America

We have predicted since before the Dotcom Bubble implosion that the direction in America was a centrist view towards stronger totalitarian regimes. This was confirmed during the Presidencies of both George Bush II and Barack Obama

The Presidential Primaries have further illustrated this direction.

Our abstraction model still suggests that a global fiat failure lies ahead at which time a “New World Order” will be brought into existence during the ensuing chaos. We can only hope it will be in the best interests of all people. Certainly it will be sold as such. We are now conditioned to believe much of what we are told without questioning it and that the government is the answer to most problems.

The 2016US Election will be more than an election. It will be about the sole of America though most won't recognize it as such!

THE NEXT CRISIS HAS BEGUN (13 Page COMMENTARY ONLY .pdf)
The 2008 Set-Up

We can see that the Global Financial Stress Index is strongly trended upward. This is not because of BREXIT though that has definitely been a contributor. The GMTP report showed that the TED spread and OIS-Libor measures have been increasingly significantly, as has also international sovereign Credit Default premiums.


An accelerating collapse in global bond yields cannot be perceived as anything other than a clear warnins. This is particularly true when the divergence between stocks and bond yield is so pronounced. Since the end of Federal Reserve stimulus programs the world has felt the impact.

Expect more stimulus soon!

THE G-7 SENDAI DISCHORD (71 Page FULL REPORT .pdf)
Shanghai Accord Crumbles with G-7 Sendai Discord

THE G-7 SENDAI DISCHORD (21 Page COMMENTARY ONLY .pdf)
Shanghai Accord Crumbles with G-7 Sendai Discord

We have discussed the Shanghai Accord in a number of previous reports. The results have left us with little doubt that whether implicitly or explicitly, some sort of understanding was reached at the G-20 Shanghai meeting in late February between country finance ministers and central bankers. Like any agreement there is give and take with the expectations that all are better served with the accord. What is obvious is that the agreement was not a winner for Chairperson Janet Yellen. Her body language was obvious. She had been forced to accept something very painful. Like a student being handed a paper with an “F” on it her demeanor spoke volumes without someone actually knowing the results.

What Janet had to deliver was a weakened US dollar which meant no rate increases, least of all the four she had been signaling since assuming full control of the reigns of the Federal Reserve.

So Yellen really had no choice but to play this game. China however is far from stupid and can be counted on to have played a new card at the special U.S.-China Strategic & Economic Dialogue just held June 6-7. We will have to wait to see what the real outcome was?

A FAILING SOCIAL CONTRACT (70 Page FULL REPORT .pdf)
There is an Unwritten Contract between the Governing and the Governed

A FAILING SOCIAL CONTRACT (20 Page COMMENTARY ONLY .pdf)
There is an Unwritten Contract between the Governing and the Governed

We believe that what the Economic Cycles are telling us is that there is a massive social change about to occur in the US. A change being brought on by lost faith in the system.

Our Annual Thesis this year was entitled “Crisis of Trust”. Last year it was entitled “Fiduciary Failure”. The titles are telling about an increasing degree of lost faith in the status quo.

Inequality has become so blatant that the current US Presidential Primaries have been “set on their ear” by massive turnout for candidates who are talking about the degree of corruption, incompetence and ineffectiveness of the US government.  The electorate is frustrated and getting angry.

The citizenship now believes that the system is no longer working for them.  They see that when they do all the right things (go to school, train, work hard) it no longer delivers on expectations. The American Dream is no longer a reality for the vast majority of Americans. It is a broken dream.

What has happened is the Social Contract has broken down. 

The Social Contract is the unwritten agreement between the Citizenship and Government, that if a person does the right things, the government will create an environment such that they will be rewarded. Instead what they now see is; not only this not happening, but those closest to the government (such as Crony Capitalists, Government Employees, those living off the government) doing well but everyone else hurting.

Corruption is often tolerated by the citizenship until a person can no longer live the life they want. They then resent the government free loaders and demand change and or revolt. When they no longer can support their family - they revolt. It my opinion we are nearing that point in America.

Maybe more frightening is the possibility that this may not be unique to America. We are seeing similar patterns with fringe parties taking controlling positions around the world. The status quo and social contract is now under fire in all developed economies!

Promised entitlements are now being called into question as time has come for governments to deliver on their promises.

CRIPPLED CAPITALISM (76 Page FULL REPORT .pdf)
Capitalism versus Financialism

CRIPPLED CAPITALISM (16 Page COMMENTARY ONLY .pdf)
Capitalism versus Financialism

We now have massive headwinds which will stymie and frustrate continued government efforts. Three factors alone may prove insurmountable to create the inflation needed to manage the unsustainable US debt.

  1. Technology - Information Revolution now "Kicking in"!
  2. Demographics - Dent's Spending Cycle
  3. Globalization - Corporate Labor Arbitrage

The problem in America and the Developed Economies of the world is too much debt and not enough growth. It is unsustainable and inextinguishable. The problem will not be solved primarily due to a lack of leadership & a true understanding of the problem by the political apparatus.  While economies are presently manipulated and fragile governments must still push for Inflation to cheapen debt burden. Unfortunately a crisis is inevitable at some point in the future.

CAPITALISM

  • Efficient Allocation of Capital IS NOT Happening
    • Risk Incorrectly Priced,
    • There is a Lack of Price Discovery,
    • Excessive and too sustained a period of Malinvestment
  • Household Savings IS NOT Happening. There is no Savings for Investment. Rather we have Credit Creation for Consumption
  • Quarterly Corporate Results Reporting
    • Penalizes Longer Term Investment which would create major breakthrough growth areas,
    • Penalizes for Risk Taking,
    • Penalizes CAPEX expenditure.
  • Corporations are not Investing but rather simply “Stripping Out Costs”
  • Cheap Money has created Over Supply rather than the Wealth Effect intended to create Demand Pull (Even if successful is limited in time and scope). Rather what we face will be a demand hole which will be deflationary as Pricing Power is lost.
  • Leveraged Buyouts are now sought for Growth where costs are stripped. There is now little corporate organic growth.
  • Corporate Buybacks are stripping investable capital from productive use. This occurs when Corporations Don't See Risk Free Growth                         

What we have is:

FINANCIALISM instead of CAPITALISM

CREDITISM instead of CAPITALISM

CENTRAL BANK INTERVENTION COMING! (90 Page FULL REPORT .pdf)
Too Many Cracks to Allow Further Delay

CENTRAL BANK INTERVENTION COMING! (24 Page COMMENTARY ONLY .pdf)
Too Many Cracks to Allow Further Delay

It is important not to lose perspective from all the economic data coming at us about where we likely are within the Economic Cycle. History has show that economies follow various cycles which have tremendous influence on asset valuations and market pricing. The global economic cycle may be more important today than ever before as sovereign economies become increasingly inter-dependent.

We see in the chart below by BoA Merril Lynch’s Global Fund Manager Survey that it is felt that the mid Cycle has turned down hard but that the Late Cycle hasn’t turned yet. These surveys by their nature are delayed, as often the sentiment supporting them in lagging. I suspect the Late Cycle has already turned down hard as illustrated by a turn in the Credit Cycle, which we have discussed in previous reports. One look at Global Trade data and the Baltic Dry shipping index will confirm this even for the most skeptical.

UNCERTAINTY & APPREHENSIVE UNEASINESS (20 Page COMMENTARY ONLY .pdf)
Sentiment Takes on a Tone of Worry

Over the past few quarters our monthly reports have focused on the rapidly decaying fundamentals around the world. There is little doubt any longer of the degree of global slowdown we are experiencing, and the fact the US is now being impacted. I am already reading mainstream writers talking about a potential US recession in 2016. The purpose of the GMTP mission to warn early has been achieved. None of this should come as any surprise to our subscribers

It is time to shift our attention to what we now need to be focused on. That is what global events will dictate the seriousness of the outcome in 2016. Maybe more specifically, what will trigger the next round of central bank and government policy initiatives? We need not focus on the US, as it is going to be the "tail on the dog" reacting to events.

This chart of global reserves shows something quite startling. Reserves are not growing and in fact are shrinking! The same players who were the biggest builders of foreign reserves are now the ones falling the fastest. Who? China and the major (non US) Energy Exporters.

That is where we will look in this report.

GLOBAL SOWDOWN STEEPENING (71 Page FULL REPORT .pdf)
Credit Cycle is Reacting

GLOBAL SOWDOWN STEEPENING (22 Page COMMENTARY ONLY .pdf)
Credit Cycle is Reacting

QE:  A FAILED EXPERIMENT

 In March in “QE: A Failed Experiment” I started writing about how Quantitative Easing was becoming more about over supply than about its intended purpose of creating economic demand.
Cheap money may help consumers’ ability to consume but it was having a much more profound impact on suppliers. It turns out that the expected wealth effect for consumers, paled in comparison to allowing producers to ramp up production and in turn for their suppliers to meet these rising abilities.

AN ARTIFICAL EQUILIBRIUM

At some point it can be expected that demand and supply will come into balance. That balance can be preceded by a massive overshoot of supply if money is made too cheap for too long a period of time.
Too many suppliers chasing slowing demand growth leads to lost pricing power. Margin and profit problems can be hidden and with easy credit. Zombie companies can be kept alive and they in turn bring further pricing power pressures. This is the stage we are in now and I have also written about this.
What we are going to discuss here is we have entered another stage in this rebalancing. Specifically, we have a turn in the credit cycle as cash flows shrink and the requisite credit ratings for new loans are under pressure.
