Tackle Today: Keep me from the gallows pole

« What did you bring me, my dear friends? »

“Hangman, hold it a little while
Think I see my friends coming”

Reality insists on knocking on our doors despite the specialists’ opinions. The vehicle once called ‘fixed income’ is now becoming ‘fixed loss’.

“Friends, did you get some silver?
Did you get a little gold?”

For this new investment vehicle, you can use whatever synonym you want:

  • Fixed deprivation
  • Fixed loss
  • Fixed dissipation
  • Fixed diminution
  • Fixed erosion
  • Fixed reduction

“What did you bring me, my dear friends,
To keep me from the gallows pole?”

Whatever you name it, the business stays the same: invest today, have less tomorrow. The intertemporal choice concept turned upside down.

“I couldn’t get no silver, I couldn’t get no gold
You know that we’re too damn poor”

Printing money.
Positive inflation.
Negative yield.
The buying power corrosion.

Central Banks all around the developed countries are running run out of ammo to deal with the deacceleration of their economies. If their only firepower is tweaking interest rates, what’s left to be done?

“Hangman, hold it a little while
I think I see my brother coming
Riding a many mile”

Investors can shy away from negative yields by buying stocks. The problem is that they are also backed up by easy money and corporate debt.

“What did you bring me, my brother?”

Demographics are changing.
Technology is shaping the investment landscape.
The futures insists on being in the future.

Is there any light at the end of the tunnel?
If there is any, it looks like gold.

“Brother, I brought you some silver
I brought a little gold,
I brought a little of everything
To keep you from the gallows pole”

“Hangman, turn your head awhile
I think I see my sister coming
Riding a many mile
Sister, I implore you, take him by the hand
Take him to some shady bower
Save me from the wrath of this man”
