MAGA: Any small issue with US debt and it'll be thermonuclear reaction
  • The amount due in the next 12 months is $7340 billions, or approximately 25.8 normalized monthly US budget revenues.

    Of these, $3995 billions will mature in the next 3 months - the normalized US budget income in 14 months.

    It present FED road looks like very thin hair, any error in balancing on it - and it'll be huge deflation and economic collapse or huge inflation and... economic collapse.

  • USA has a printing press. As long as the debt is marked in USD, it will simply be rolled over. You cannot have a debt problem as the nations debt is in the local currency.

    You cannot have a debt problem as the nations debt is in the local currency.

    It is not purely technically debt problem - it is trust problem.

    Any small error now - and system will become unstable and with each new day they need more intense bubbles to store imbalances.

    Main issue is that it is tiny amount of people who are becoming "richer", they are more and more distant from all other society. And it is harder for system to contain newly made virtual dollars.

  • The deficit of the US state budget in December increased by 10.8 times in annual terms and amounted to a record $143.562 billion for this month, the country's finance ministry said. In December 2019, the figure was $13.286 billion.

    Budget revenues increased last month by 3.1% - to $346.119 billion compared to $ 335.805 billion a year earlier. Meanwhile, spending jumped 40.3% to $489.682 billion from $ 349.091 billion in December 2019. This is mainly due to the measures of the government of the country to keep the economy afloat amid the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the costs of developing a vaccine against coronavirus infection.

  • “This policy with China matters … to every one of the people who is out there seeking employment,” Pompeo advised. “If we get this wrong, Maria, we will live in a world that is so deeply different. We will see these sanctions on our leaders pale in comparison to the pain and the absence of prosperity that will be here in the United States of America if we don’t get this right. It’s one of the things that I’m proudest of that we did. We protected American jobs. We protected American businesses. We made sure that our intellectual property was in a better place. These are the things that will ultimately matter.”

    If China suddenly will demand some real goods in exchange for theirs... Yes, it will be certainly lack of prosperity.

  • This is how exchange of newly printed money to real goods look like near US port :-)

    And it will continue, for a little while. But you really do not want to know that happens next.

  • In order to simply touch run-of-the-mill historical valuation norms, the S&P 500 would have to lose somewhere in the range of 65-70% over the completion of this cycle.

  • The American economy should not fear hyperinflation amid the recovery. The expected high volumes of spending after the pandemic, which the Americans have saved, will not be able to significantly raise prices up and lead to hyperinflation due to the fact that the Fed has been pursuing a policy to reduce inflation for many years "I don't think these effects have to be significant or persistent, and the real reason for this is that we have had decades of well-contained inflation expectations.

    Big warning.

    Margin debt – the amount that individuals and institutions borrow against their stock holdings as tracked by FINRA at its member brokerage firms – is just one indication of stock market leverage. But FINRA reports it monthly. Other types of stock market leverage are not reported at all, or are disclosed only piecemeal in SEC filings by brokers and banks that lend to their clients against their portfolios, such as Securities-Based Loans (SBLs). No one knows how much total stock market leverage there is. But margin debt shows the trend.

    In February, margin debt jumped by another $15 billion to $813 billion, according to FINRA. Over the past four months, margin debt has soared by $154 billion, a historic surge to historic highs. Compared to February last year, margin debt has skyrocketed by $269 billion, or by nearly 50%, for another WTF sign that the zoo has gone nuts.
