For the 🇯🇵 Opening Ceremony

Heres your “moment of silence“

DM indices YTD % - great job NKY225

Maybe not “the Enron of COVID“ as I had labeled it - but looking more like the Lehman of COVID. 

Olympic Stadium Capacity: 64,000

In attendance: 990 of the world’s COVID policy direct influencers & implementers - literally the 1% (spoiler alert: COVID remains & resurges, hence 1% full)

Outside Olympic Stadium - thousands and thousands of pissed off protestors creditors who are paying the economic price, as well as paid for the stadium itself.

Great call not allowing them in for social distancing precautions

Gotta hand it to them - they’ve managed to televise the COVID fail issue, the global wealth divide issue, and the waste of fiscal/taxpayer issue in one

Sign Posts for Inflation. What to Look for? Summarizing thoughts by Russell Napier, Russell Clark, and Luke Gromen.

I am outlining here sign posts you should be looking for that might turn the tide from disinflation to inflation. I will summarize what each macro thinker is looking for:

  1. Russell Napier: Russell believes that governments will mandate credit rations to the commercial banks for political goals. These political goals are reducing inequality, fighting climate change, favoring small business over big corporates, and the shift from return on capital to the return on labor. He expects money growth to grow on average 10% year over year. He expects inflation will be around 3% to 5%. He expects central banks (including the FED) to be compliant to government wishes. Examples: A) In the UK, usually the longest term fixed mortgage you could normally get was five years. Prime minister Boris Johnson has now created a 25 year fixed mortgage for first-time buyers, offered by banks, guaranteed by the government. B) Bank of Japan has mandated that commercial banks lend at 0% for climate change related lending. C) In the US watch for student loan forgiveness and other social programs for millennials. He expects government bond yields to stay low through central bank purchases and mandating financial institutions to buy more of government bonds. In another words no more free markets. So Raoul Pal's chart of truth turns into the chart of deceit!
  2. Russell Clark: Russell is following China closely. What he is observing is that China is already attempting to have policies that favor wage growth and the return on labor... (More)

EU Commission released their plan for reducing net emissions by at least 55%

Today the EU Commission unveiled their big Green plan and the ETS is a really big part of it 
something @Raoul Pal discussed with Pierre Andurand)


Also, this is related to this post on the exchange:



For those into futures there is something new in the making: the Carbon Contracts for difference (CCfD’s) 



Who pays the ETS? the end consumer ofcourse :D (I wonder if it would be possible to buy my own consumption at the low ETS price now as an inflation hedge?). 


Lots of reading can be done here ==> (for some strange reason the executive summary is at the very end pg. 578).
