With every passing day, the Fed is slowly losing the game, a point made earlier today by SocGen's Albert Edwards who wrotes that "Citizens Will Soon Turn Their Rage Towards Central Bankers." And it is not just skeptical pundits, and former (and in some cases current) Fed presidents admitting central banks are increasingly powerless to boost the global economy and control inflation (or the Phillips curve) even if they still have sway over capital markets. What is far more insidious to the Fed's

Authored by Kevin Muir via The Macro Tourist blog, An interesting aspect of living in Toronto is the different people I get to meet. For example, although I know plenty of Bay Street types; traders, investment bankers, securities lawyers, portfolio managers (you know, all the people you try to avoid at cocktail parties), I am fortunate enough to count as my friends a more eclectic group of entrepreneurs that expose me to ideas that are a little different. One of these individuals is a buddy

So (for good reason), we keep noting that if you want to see how the American broadband market really works, you should take a close look at West Virginia. As in most states, a lack of competition keeps broadband prices high and speeds slow, with far too many consumers forced to pay a tidy sum for DSL speeds circa 2002. But the state has also been embroiled in scandal after scandal involving Frontier Communication's mismanagement of taxpayer subsidies that were intended to try and resolve this

'Progressive' democrats in this country are seemingly becoming completely unhinged.  A party that is run by the 'peaceful' hippies of the 60's who, at least at the time, considered themselves among the most vocal advocates of free speech, now openly supports the suppression of free speech on college campuses.  A party that abhors violence saw one of it's voters last week carry out an attempted assassination of numerous Republican congressmen...not to mention the several violent

Authored by Nick Cunningham via OilPrice.com, The power restructuring in Saudi Arabia this week led to the elevation of 31-year-old Mohammed bin Salman to crown prince, essentially ensuring that he will become the youngest king of Saudi Arabia in the not-too-distant future. The heir apparent has already been effectively running the country for the past few years, so the move was not entirely a shock. Nevertheless, the effects on the oil market could be profound. The new crown prince is known

A serial deadbeat (Argentina) got investors to buy 100-year bonds, Sri Lanka’s latest debt sale was oversubscribed by 10 times, tiny Belarus is poised to issue eurobonds, and even Papua New Guinea, the impoverished Pacific Island nation, is planning its overseas debut in the second half of the year.

It's been hard to escape the narrative of the coal miner over the last year. President Trump talks a lot about putting coal miners back to work, and he's rolled back Obama-era regulations aimed at doing just that. But setting narratives aside, the numbers show coal is declining. Natural gas is cheaper to use to make electricity. And many of the people who have done this work don't see much of a future for themselves in coal. Gary Bentley is one of those people. He was born and raised in the small coal mining town of Whitesburg, Kentucky. Straight out of high school, he went underground into the Appalachian coal mines. "My original plans were not to work underground, it was to go to college," said Bentley, who's written a series of articles about coal mining called "In the Black." "I actually wanted to work in education. But then, of course, being 18 or 19 years old and earning $70,000 a year, I kind of got suckered into the industry and ended up staying." Related Counting up American coal jobs: What's the real total? Kentucky coal country hangs on to Trump's promise Bentley said there are other reasons people choose to work as coal miners. He worked with someone who used to be a college professor, for example, who realized he would make better money and be closer to his family by working in the mines. "It's not always about either not being able to do something else or not knowing how to, it's about being close to family. And when [mining's] the only option you have, that's what you do." There are about 51,000 coal mining jobs left in the U.S.; in 1985, there were 178,000. But in regions like eastern Kentucky, there's a real lack of viable alternatives that pay living wages.  Bentley said that nonetheless, the way you hear politicians talk about mining, you'd think it was the biggest industry in the region. Courtesy of Gary Bentley "In 2008, which would have been one of the biggest booms of my mining career as far as the industry itself, coal only made up 4 percent of Kentucky's economy. If you look at the way politics are played around the industry, you'd think that it as the majority of the state's economy. So I do think politicians either romanticize or blow things out of proportion for their own means, because an industry that's only 4 percent of a state's economy shouldn't play as large of a role in the state's politics." Bentley lost his job in 2013 after 12 years of underground coal mining. He said he chased other mining jobs around Kentucky, but realized the decline in the industry was going to make that more and more difficult. And ultimately, changes in the energy market were to blame. "You've got to look at the price of natural gas, which I think was one of the biggest heavy hitters in the change in the industry ... the fact that solar, wind and hydro is now a more affordable option for energy compared to coal." Bentley also said the export market for U.S. coal is disappearing, with other countries like China and Australia extracting their own coal. "It's all about profit margin and how to make an extra dollar." Bentley said the way to get former miners to continue to make their own dollars is to give them new economic opportunities, not to try to resuscitate the coal industry.
