00:00 - 03:03 - This Quote of the week addresses the escalating problem in society where we can't bridge our divisions because we are increasingly unable to have honest respectful conversations, with so many areas and topics no-go zones. It's all leading to escalating civil violence.

Interview of the Week

The Incoming "Financial Crime of the Century"

on Saturday, 19 August 2017 11:44


Dr. James Thorne was very clear when he last joined us in April 2017 that Trump's deregulation of the financial sector and though he expected it to be a 2-3 year process things have gone very well in that area. James tells Michael what opportunities investors should be looking at to take advantage of this deregulation. 

Jame also thinks that we are early in the transition from analog to digital and recommended Amazon and Google last time, both which are trading higher now. James says the rate of change of technological innovation is accelerating, and with Amazon doing significant damage in the retail space, any company that isn't spending significant amounts of money on technology "is going to go away".

In a fascinating segment of this interview, the US Government & the Obama Administration is about to be accused of committing the largest financial crime in history, stealing money from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to finance a bail-out Wall Street and to also finance ObamaCare. Documents are now coming out but it is not yet being covered by the mainstream media. 

Thorne like the fact that their is fear in the market, and he scours the world for places where that fear is in place, Europe is interesting, Greece looks good oThe Problem With The Relentless Middle Class Messagever the next 2-3 years. Canada is looking expensive.

The Problem With The Relentless Middle Class Message

on Saturday, 19 August 2017 11:03


The Federal Liberals contant message that they are doing everything for the "middle class" clearly resonates with voters, and it also provides cover when Justin Trudeau got caught breaking his own rules regarding pay for access at a dinner for Chinese billionaires. The Liberals do lots of things that hurt the middle class. For example one of their main six goals for the renegotiation of NAFTA that includes preserving a system that transfers wealth from the lowest earning 40% of families to a privileged group of just 13,500!

You Can Ignore Economics But Economics Won't Ignore You

Michael can't think of a single special interest group leader, big Government advocate or politician whose stood up in in the last 10 years and said "the World has really changed, so I've changed my view on economics and finance."

It's Never Been Easier or Cheaper To Substitute Technology For Jobs

on Thursday, 17 August 2017 10:56


We are starting to see some research on the impact of a hike in minimum wage on jobs that can be replaced by technology. The conclusions aren't pretty but its not too likely minimum wage advocates are going to change their tune.

"NAFTA Fatally Flawed

on Thursday, 17 August 2017 01:10


The Americans come right out of the gate talking tough on NAFTA, not a good sign for what Canadians have come to understand is a critically important agreement for Canada. That said the numbers look better for Canada than for Mexico. Apple announces they are going to spend a Billion on streaming video, meaning the 76 Billion being spent on TV ads is going to get split even further as these transformative technologies continue coming down the pike.

The Iron Clad Stupidity of a Soft Drink Tax

on Wednesday, 16 August 2017 08:03

A 1 1/2 cent per ounce tax on soft drinks promising to fund pre-kindergarten programs with the proceeds led to some very predictable outcomes. First, sales of soft drinks plunged, the revenue projected from the tax is down, big layoffs in soft drink producers and deliverers occurred, beer consumption rose and less than half the money raised went to pre-kindergarten programs!
