I have to go out and fix a roof today so this is a quick story: Mr. Sunshine is an economist who says some very dumb things at Seeking Alpha. I and other readers tear him apart. Fun times, go enjoy. Also, we notice that our anger about the ending of the M3 data was correct, the news about the global monetary system still shows the collapse continuing. Even as commodity inflation fades temporarily, the underlying trade mess still continues. The US saw its trade deficit fall but this was 100% due to the weakening dollar. The cost of this fall in imports was very, very high: we paid through the nose for oil. Everyone in America is significantly poorer thanks to this.
