Is Canada a ‘real’ country? What is a ‘real’ country anyway? Is a ‘country’ defined by ethnic lines, borders, corporations, or what the United Nations says? Is Kosovo a country? Some say yes, some do not agree: Kosovo, self-declared independent country in the Balkans region of Europe.
Going back to the ‘USA is Exceptional’ meme- yes this is true! But it’s not necessarily a good thing (just like, being positive isn’t always good, for example it’s not good to be HIV positive). USA has the highest per capita prison population – and is exceptional in a number of areas. USA is number one in terms of real GDP, and last in many other terms. One thing that the USA is last in – FX.
How valuable is software that makes money? Obviously, it’s priceless. How do we value the biggest opaque commodity – knowledge? How does one value financial knowledge? Finance as both a topic and industry has been holding huge secrets guarded by the most rich and powerful in the world for hundreds of generations. Why don’t they […]
(GLOBALINTELHUB) –Trump met with Shinzo Abe friday, the famous inflationist Prime Minister of Japan. The issue in question is if Trump will label Japan a ‘currency manipulator’ – whatever that means. It seems to be the equivalent of ‘Currency Headwinds’ in publicly traded companies. Because, every currency is manipulated! The only currency in use today […]
Thanks Bloomberg, for another useless piece of regurgitated info we’ve known for years; fake news drives the fake markets which are artificially inflated. Actually thanks to the Fed for doing the academic research on this topic to confirm what we’ve known for years – the markets are rigged and one way they are manipulated is […]
(GLOBALINTELHUB.COM) 2/10/2017 — One of the most important points in the new “Trump System” of doing business, is that of the US Dollar, which currently is used by world’s central banks as their reserve. Also, it’s used by peasants in many parts of the world including Russia – as an alternative to their domestic currency. […]
Trump will soon assume his elected office, and potentially change FX markets forever. Well, it’s already happened. But what we’ve seen happen now, has been mostly ‘talk’ – whereas in 4 days, it will be ‘reality.’ First let’s look at the best example in FX of the Trump Effect, USD/JPY traded as (FXY), Guggenheim CurrencyShares […]
It’s laudable that Trump wants to bring factories back to USA. But how about virtual, monetary factories? Moving financial institutions such as banks, insurers, brokerage houses, exchanges, and other institutions brings the most bang for the buck when it comes to revitalizing America’s economy. As we explain in Splitting Pennies, even though money doesn’t exist, […]
It’s no surprise that the largest employer of mathematicians in the United States is the National Security Agency.

An interesting week for the evolution of Forex! Coming just after leading US based intellectuals calling for the dethroning of “King Dollar” in an NY Times op-ed, we are moments away from a vote that could cause a major shakeup of the Eurozone, potential crash of the GBP, and creation of a new Scottish currency […]
The idea of Scottish independence has moved from the implausible to the very possible. Whether or not it actually happens, the idea that the union of England and Scotland, which has existed for more than 300 years, could be dissolved has enormous implications in its own right, and significant implications for Europe and even for […]

How many times in the last few days have we been told that Turkey – or Ukraine or Venezuela or Argentina – are too small to matter? How many comparisons of Emerging Market GDP to world GDP to instill confidence that a little crisis there can’t possible mean problems here. Putting aside this entirely disingenuous […]

In the past we have discussed at length the inevitable demise of the USD as the world’s reserve currency noting that nothing lasts forever.  However, when former World Bank chief economist Justin Yifu Lin warns that “the dominance of the greenback is the root cause of global financial and economic crises,” we suspect the world will begin […]
