Death By China: How America Lost Its Manufacturing Base

It’s really important that stock traders watch the Death By China movie below as the Trump Administration gears up for a trade war with China.

If you want to support quality movies like Death By China, consider purchasing the HD version on Amazon. If your HD TV can get Amazon, you can watch it (Read More….)

Trump Administration and Tariffs Versus Quotas

Protectionist policies in the form of tariffs and quotas are coming from a Trump Administration. It seems appropriate then that we examine tariffs and quotas from a macroeconomics perspective.

The two most common ways of restricting trade are with tariffs and quotas. From a political point of view and to prevent a trade war, a (Read More….)

Here Comes Supply-Side Economics and the Laffer Curve

Increases in government regulation, taxes, environmental regulations, and ObamaCare on businesses, shifted the aggregate supply (AS) curve inward and thus reduced aggregate demand (AD).

With the explosion higher in the cost of doing business, businesses hired fewer workers. In fact, many small businesses reduced the size of their workforce in response to ObamaCare. Less (Read More….)

Pharmaceutical Drug Pricing

Pharmaceutical drug pricing is all over the mainstream financial media right now. Let’s examine the macroeconomics of what is happening.

The demand for pharmaceutical drugs is inelastic. People that need a pharmaceutical drug prescribed by their doctor will demand that drug regardless of price. As the price of the drug goes up, demand mostly stays (Read More….)

Macroeconomics of Rising Interest Rates

The prospect of a Federal Reserve rate hike is driving up the US dollar. The rising US dollar has a significant impact on the US economy and thus stock market. It’s important that traders understand the implications of a rising US dollar from a macroeconomic perspective.

Rising US interest rates mean that a lot of (Read More….)

Macroeconomics Of Rent Control

California, New Jersey, and New York have the most cities with rent control. Sanctuary cities in California like San Francisco and Los Angeles have some of the toughest rent controls. Rent controls hurt the local economy and make rental unit availability worse. Aggregate deadweight loss from rent controls across the country negatively impacts the US (Read More….)

Inflation Expectations On The Rise Shifts Aggregate Demand Outward

Inflationary expectations are the expectations that consumers have concerning future inflation. If buyers expect higher prices in the future, they increase their demand in the present. This shifts the aggregate demand curve outward (to the right) which is good for the economy. For example, if the price of a house is expected to be higher (Read More….)

Microeconomics and Taxation

Most government revenue comes from the taxation of transactions and labor. Taxes impact both the supply and demand curves. Taxes cause a buyer to pay more for something and suppliers to receive less. The loss of value for both buyers and sellers is called the deadweight loss of taxation. Taxation has an enormous impact on (Read More….)

The Aggregate Supply-Aggregate Demand Model

Looking at the aggregate supply (AS), aggregate demand (AD) model, we can see where the US economy is currently at in the economic cycle. It is critical that traders and investors understand where we are at in the business cycle so as to be in on the right side of the trade. Timing Bull/Bear cycles (Read More….)

A Macroeconomic Analysis of ObamaCare

ObamaCare has created massive shortages within the healthcare sector. In cities, it is common to wait many hours before being seen as hospitals have a shortage of beds. Doctors have stopped taking new patients as they are overwhelmed by the numbers of people coming to see them. Let’s examine what happened from a macroeconomics perspective.

Illegal Immigration and Job Wage Stagnation In the US

Illegal immigration negatively impacts the hourly wage of US citizens. Illegal immigrants are pouring across the Mexico border, and we have no way of counting them but what we can do is track legal immigration from Mexico then double the number for a fuzzy-math estimate.

With legal immigration and an impenetrable border, economists working (Read More….)

Rising Wages Are What Will Cause The Next Recession

We all love rising wages, but it is rising wages that will cause the next recession and Bear market.

Below is a chart of labor costs (red) versus corporate profits (blue).

A clear pattern emerges from the chart above. Profits rise after a recession as labor costs fall. When the labor market reaches (Read More….)

Macroeconomics of the OPEC Cartel

All the recent talk of an OPEC deal to push up the price of oil is nonsense. Here is a hypothetical supply and demand chart of oil.

In this hypothetical example, equilibrium is set where the supply and demand curves cross at a price of $40 a barrel at 75 MMbpd.

Shifting the Supply (Read More….)

With So Much Debt In the US Economy, Is It Even Possible To Grow Faster?

The US national debt just broke above $19.5 trillion. Both Democrats and Republicans are to blame, but it is important to note that President Obama and Democrats increased the national debt more than all President’s before combined.

George Bush exploded the national debt by $3 trillion in response to an imploding economy and 911. (Read More….)

Mexico Devalues Peso To Dominate Auto Production In North America

Mexico is devaluing its currency to gain a huge advantage in international trade. Democrats and the Obama Administration have done nothing to stop it.

Like most economists, I am for free trade; however, free trade today is not what it was in the 90s. The concept of international trade works because of comparative advantage. (Read More….)

Government Spending and the Crowding Out Effect

The velocity of money has hit the lowest level ever recorded as I wrote about here. I believe the crowding out effect is at least partially to blame for the slowdown in the velocity of money.

President Obama has run the national debt up to nearly $20 trillion, more than all President’s before him combined. (Read More….)

Powerful Macroeconomics Case For Trumponomics

One of the reasons I began supporting Donald Trump and declared GuerillaStockTrading as an official supporter of the Trump candidacy almost a year ago has to do with economics and ultimately the stock market.

The majority of people who are against Trump are not very smart when it comes to understanding international trade and macroeconomics. (Read More….)
