Fraud risks are not protecting index investors. The WireCard (Germany) fraud is reminiscent of the Swedish Match
fraud in the 1920s. Its market price peaked after rising 25x or more as it was added to prestigious indices before
the evidence of the fraud was accepted by market authorities. Accounting adjustments and Government payments
assist story tellers in maintaining their narratives around the world. It is not only China where Government
responses have again included focus on appearances of stability, short term unproductive investments and
delaying/avoiding transparency. Credulity remained widespread as too few asked ‘what were they thinking?’ as 100
year Latin American bonds defaulted in 3 years causing billions of losses, and the US political convention breached
all conventions.

The report claims that 89% of the world’s internet users are being actively monitored—around 3 billion people. As you’d expect when it comes to mass population monitoring and the use of technology to advance population control, China leads the way. But of the 65 countries covered in the report, there are another 39 in addition to China which “have instituted advanced social media surveillance programs.”

Whenever possible, Target assigns each shopper a unique code — known internally as the Guest ID number — that keeps tabs on everything they buy. “If you use a credit card or a coupon, or fill out a survey, or mail in a refund, or call the customer help line, or open an e-mail we’ve sent you or visit our Web site, we’ll record it and link it to your Guest ID,” Pole said. “We want to know everything we can.”

BlackRock Heats Up Climate Change Pressure On Boards
QUOTE
BlackRock announced that it voted against management at 53 companies worldwide (primarily in the energy sector) for “lack of progress” on climate concerns during the 2020 proxy season, and directed another 191 companies to take faster action. Those that do not make significant progress risk BlackRock voting against management in 2021. The report contains case studies of circumstances where BlackRock voted against directors due to significant concerns about climate risk management (e.g., lack of robust disclosures on management of climate risks).

Arlo Kinsey, 18, told The Kansas City Star that the encounter occurred shortly after the customer, who has not yet been identified, entered the eatery without a mask during Kinsey's shift at RJ’s Bob-Be-Que Shack a week ago.

Kinsey, who the paper noted in its coverage is now a “former” employee of the restaurant, said he asked the man when he first came in if he “could go get his mask or if he had a mask, and he said he had an exemption.”

“So, I asked him if I could see the exemption just to make sure, and then he showed me his gun, saying [that] was his exemption,”

Hi All
Don't know how accurate this is, but tax revenue is going backwards (well it would)
https://www.usdebtclock.org/index.html

Heres a video from 2012
In 2012 Tax revenue was at 2.3 Trillion now its at 2.5 Trillion while National debt has gone from 15.9 to 26.5T.

Is China preparing to issue a gold-backed currency? Only time will tell, but there have been plenty of rumblings since 2008 of China pushing a gold-backed yuan.

If more companies continue to be gobbled up by Chinese mining companies, there certainly seems that something strategic is going on behind the scenes.

JG offers this as one of the reasons the US market has done so well recently

QUOTE
The investor pulled up a chart showing retail investor behavior from Robinhood — the free trading app popular amongst millennials. The data showed a spike in investor accounts during COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns. Elsewhere, online brokerage accounts from E-Trade and Interactive Brokers have also seen an explosion in new users during lockdowns.

As it happens, the rise in new accounts coincides with the government stimulus checks sent out as part of the CARES Act. The 60-year-old bond king speculated that "maybe some of these people who are locked down are getting checks from the government maybe are throwing them in the stock market."

Some people pay attention to P/E 's, and some don't

I'm getting the same message from my neighbours. I have one whose son works in Germany.
The company he works for had been thinking about the 'work from home model' but hadn't adopted it.
The lockdown has forced them to do it and by all accounts is working out quite well.


This from New York Times
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/12/nyregion...-from-home.html

Then it crossed my mind, if you don't have to work in the city why live there?
And found this
