    • Fed Admits It Needs Evidence Q1 Weakness Was Transitory – Ep. 251
      Summary: The Fed is now indicating it needs evidence that  the Q1 weak economic data is transitory and not a trend.  This is interesting for 2 reasons.  The Fed’s narrative has always been to tout economic growth even in the face of flimsy or no supporting data.  Now the Fed is actually admitting there is […] The post Fed Admits It Needs Evidence Q1 Weakness […]
    • The Dollar’s Decline Is Only Just Getting Started – Ep. 250
      Summary:  The dollar’s decline really started with the Fed’s too-little-too late rate hikes.  The rally of 2014 – 2015 was fueled by expectations of more aggressive Fed monetary policy that did not materialize. We’ve been trending sideways since then with the exception of an upward spike after the Trump victory.  Now, as much of the […] The post The Dollar’s […]
    • Will Republicans Dump Trump for Pence? – Ep. 249
      Summary: Republicans face chaos around Trump’s political difficulties, causing some to consider potential advantages of a President Pence.  Market volatility has not yet brought the DJIA below pre-Trump numbers while the dollar index slides and gold moves up. Meanwhile, household debt is higher than 2008 levels even as fewer Americans own homes. It looks lik […]

      Summary: The retail sector is in worse shape today than it was in 2008 during and immediately following the financial crisis. Retailing has been responsible for 10% of the jobs gained during this so-called recovery. Clearly part of the problem is the increase in minimum wage.  Why are retailers adding so many jobs when their […] The post Fed And Markets Excu […]
    • Fantasy Trumps Reality – Ep. 247
      Summary: Trump fantasy persists in the face of weakening economic data, health care and tax reform uncertainty.

Atlas Shrugged: Part 1 coming to select theaters April 15th

The film that no one thought could be made is finally being released: Ayn Rand’s magnum opus, Atlas Shrugged.  The movie was made on a relatively small budget and with no name actors, but the fact that it was made at all is quite an accomplishment considering all the past failures.  Since no one in Hollywood would dare pick it up and market it, the producers of the film are promoting it independently and are bringing it to select theaters on America’s Tax Day, April 15th.  They are hoping through word of mouth and social media that it will spread in popularity and become a sleeper hit like My Fat Greek Wedding.  Since the book is over a thousand pages, they are splitting it into three parts, with each part to come out a year after the last.

In most surveys of people’s most influential books, Atlas Shrugged typically makes it in the top ten.  After being out for over 50 years, the novel is still selling really well and has surged in popularity since 2008.  Atlas Shrugged is not only about an individual’s struggle against a big government dystopia, but it lays out Ayn Rand’s philosophy of objectivism.  This controversial philosophy holds the individual as paramount, promoting personal responsibility as sacred and the fruits of one’s labor as something that cannot be claimed by any other person.  Obviously you can see why the liberal Hollywood media would hate this film.

For those interested, here’s the official trailer:
