A FINANCIAL BUBBLE ‘TOO BIG TO FAIL’ IS BEING TESTED. THE US ECONOMY STUMBLES AT THE END OF 2021.

THE ESTABLISHMENT PAYS A HEAVY PRICE FOR SHAFTING CORBYN; The wrecking of the Tory Party. Couldn’t happen to nicer politicians.

Unlike Trump and his base, it is likely the UK establishment will reclaim the Tory Party from the populists before the next election. It is also likely that Johnson is measuring his residency at No 10 on a daily basis. This is a foreshortened article on the state of the Tory Party. Developments in the world economy, for example the release today of Retail and Industrial Data in the USA, beckon requiring urgent analysis and commentary.

THE CHINESE ECONOMY as it exits 2021 and enters 2022.

On the 5th January, after I published this article, the Financial Times reported on Chinese Bank lending in an important article titled: “Chinese Banks Reveal Fears Over Economy”. The article showed that Chinese banks bought loss making instruments such as bankers’ acceptances to meet their annual lending quota rather than lending to the private sector because of fears of a slowing economy and and the risks that poses. Seems these bankers are no different to those found in the West concerned about preserving their capital rather than following the edicts of the CCP.
