The Donald’s Fake China Deal
This is clearly not “winning so much you can’t stand it”. During the 2016-2017 market year which the Donald inherited, the US got the lion’s share of China’s soybean imports, taking nearly 60% of the total compared to Brazil’s 31%. And that was pretty much in line with the historical trend. Needless to say, the green bar for the October 2018 to May 2019 period shown below is not a green shoot of progress. Brazil snagged 75% of China’s soybean buy because the stable genius and un-paralled deal-maker in the Oval Office decided to turn the US grain belt into...

Republicans for Empire and Intervention
It’s not news to readers of LRC that the Republican Party, until Trump came into the picture, has been strongly pro-empire and pro-intervention worldwide. The reasons for this are that it satisfies the interests of money and power and ideology. The Democratic Party has been and still is also pro-empire and pro-intervention for the same reasons. The Republicrats are politicians captured by these interests, which control information and policy via the deep state and which control the parties through campaign contributions, payoffs, blackmail, information control, ideological dissemination, media, intelligence agencies, the revolving door, recruiting, in other words, the swamp. Trump is...

<div>Not Even The Bookies Have Any Idea How Tomorrow's Critical Brexit Vote Will Play Out</div>
Not Even The Bookies Have Any Idea How Tomorrow's Critical Brexit Vote Will Play Out Now that a Brexit deal has been agreed between the UK and EU, all attention turns to tomorrow’s U.K. Parliamentary vote which, as Deutsche Bank's Jim Reid writes, "is a monumental occasion for the U.K. and Europe." Or maybe not that "monumental", because as Reid adds, "the reason we think that tomorrow’s vote is less important to the pound than the striking of the deal itself is that all the major UK parties now...

<div>Johnson & Johnson Slumps After Recalling Baby Powder Due To Asbestos Contamination</div>
Johnson & Johnson Slumps After Recalling Baby Powder Due To Asbestos Contamination Johnson & Johnson is recalling, and encouraging people who bought the product to discontinue use, a single lot of Johnson’s Baby Powder after tiny amounts of asbestos contamination were found in samples from a single bottle purchased online. With the stock having been under pressure anyway as investors try to ascertain the company’s potential liabilities in a series of lawsuits related to talc and other products, this latest confirmation of contamination has left shareholders selling first...   And that is weighing on Dow...

"YOLO" Day Trader Reaps Six-Figure Payday From $760 In Just Two Trades Ever since the dawn of the Internet, like-minded individuals have gathered in online chat rooms (among the more sophisticated, they were known as "forums") to share gossip and insights about their hobby.

To acknowledge the drop in trading fees on some of the biggest electronic...

Natuurgekte in de grensstreek en de rest van het land
Mijn tweede en derde artikel als vrijspreker auteur gingen in op de leugen van de natuur in Nederland. Ik haal mezelf aan: “Omdat ik van mening ben dat er naast een klimaat leugen ook een natuur leugen is. Die is al wat langer aan de gang. En die dient ook te worden onderkend. De grootschalige […]

Truth Is a Kremlin Talking Point
In response to a statement during the Democratic primary debates by presidential candidate Andrew Yang that both Russia and the United States have engaged in election interference, liberal pundit Molly McKew tweeted, “I now retract any vaguely nice thing I ever said about Yang knowing technology things because he answered the question on Putin with moral equivalency and a Kremlin talking point.” If you’re in the mood for some depressing amusement, just type the words “Kremlin talking point” without quotation marks into Twitter’s search engine and scroll through all the results which come up. Just keep on scrolling and observe how this label,...

Hub spreekt: Zwarte Donderdag, 18 oktober 2007
Het verdrag van Lissabon werd op 13 december 2007 getekend. De vergadering die de laatste rimpels glad streek was op 18 en 19 oktober 2007. Italië kreeg een extra euro parlementariër, de spelling van de euro in het cyrillisch werd veranderd, en nog wat andere details. Vandaar dat gesteld kan worden dat 18 oktober een […]

E-Verify Threatens Us All
By: Ron PaulIn addition to funding for a border wall and other border security measures, immigration hardliners are sure to push to include mandatory E-Verify in any immigration legislation considered by Congress. E-Verify is a (currently) voluntary program where businesses check job applicants’ Social Security numbers and other Information — potentially including “biometric” identifiers like fingerprints — against information stored in a federal database to determine if the job applicants are legally in the United States.Imagine how much time would be diverted from serving consumers and growing the economy if every US business had to comply with E-Verify. Also, collecting...

Remembering Burt Blumert
By: David GordonToday would have been the 89th birthday of Burt Blumert, one of the greatest personalities of the modern libertarian movement. Burt was the indispensable man behind the scenes and was a key figure in the Mises Institute, the Center for Libertarian Studies, and LewRockwell.com. He was one of Murray Rothbard’s closest friends; and when you met him, it was easy to see why Murray liked him. He was a genial and kind person and a source of wise counsel to all those fortunate to know him. Burt was the founder of Camino Coins and a principal figure in...

Mark Thornton: Is the Bust Here?
By: Mark Thornton, Jeff DeistWith stock markets in turmoil earlier this week, the Mises Institute's resident expert on booms and busts joins Jeff Deist to make sense of it. Will new Fed Chair Jerome Powell do everything possible to prop up markets, or will he be more hawkish than Janet Yellen? What kinds of indicators does Mark look for to predict trouble (hint: it's not the VIX). Why does the volume of margin loans matter, and why is the Russell 2000 Index a better predictor than the Dow or Nasdaq? Are cryptocurrencies now bound up with macro trends? And is Austrian...
