    KFC “Beyond Meat” product

    “Looks like fried erasers”

    Jim, I think deep fried erasers would be more appetizing and the rubber in them probably healthier than the mystery ingredients in Beyond Meat.

    These types of stories just keep on coming.
    Chevron sold it’s building and is slimming down its CA footprint as it gradually relocates to TX.
    http://www.capoliticalreview.com/capoliticalnewsandviews/chevron-sells-global-hqs-downsizes-california-office-space-amid-texas-expansion-report/

    They have sold their building and is now just leasing space—which as employees move out, they can sub-lease. So far 200 well paid executives have moved to Teas.
    Watch next spring as the school year ends, more will more—and replacements will be hired—in Texas.
    How much income tax revenue will the State lose? And when Chevron officially closes down in California how many billions in tax revenues will the State lose?

    Just saw headlines in our local paper about how Newsome is blaming price gouging oil companies for the high price of gas in this state. The gall of the politicians. Unfortunately, 90% of the people swallow whatever the Donks say in this state.

    A video of the Tesla bot that was shown yesterday and discussed here earlier this week:

    https://youtu.be/suv8ex8xlZA

    Pretty underwhelming. Musk is not wrong on the opportunity that robotics presents in terms of productivity, but it’s going to be a long slog with fits and starts over decades to achieve what he’s describing. I’ve worked with robotics for almost 20 years and the industry is a very tough one to be in. The biggest challenge is companies constantly shooting themselves in the foot by overpromising and underdelivering. This poisons the well for robot companies that are much more modest and realistic as to where the technology really is.

    Premiums on the generic 1 oz. silver rounds I have been purchasing are now almost $4.00. It was about $2.00 a few months ago. WTF? I saw reports of small European precious metal retailers running out of inventory so are we seeing a run on metals? My expectation was that we would see the spot price react faster in such a situation, but it hasn’t move much in the last few weeks.

    One detail of that US gas-map startled me: Michigan. Because cars are such a huge part of the economy, the state always kept gas prices in a reasonable band. No longer, I guess, with Dem Gov Whitler.

    Blogger/econ-guy/podcaster Tom Luongo has a theory. The membership of “they” is not the US, not Russia. He’s going with a plot by the EU with helpers at WEF and within various gov’ts. He says some of the moves of The Fed are actually doing a rug-pull on the EU.
    https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/luongo-curious-whodunit-nordstreams-1-2

    A minor point in his article but this caught my eye:
    “The act of vandalizing a major piece of physical infrastructure, targeting civilian populations, isn’t unprecedented in history, but it does signal that everything we thought we knew about the rules of the current game was wrong.”

    The UA/RU war is in the process of escalating. Maybe by a lot.

    10,

    The US has a clear motivation to destroy the pipelines. With them intact the EU could capitulate in exchange for nat gas. With no choice at all, they would have to turn to the US for replacement which means staying in a US orbit on the RU-UA war.

    The Fed will have a last-minute meeting tomorrow (Monday).
    Rumor says a big bank is near collapse, perhaps Deutsche Bank or Credit Suisse.

    Or perhaps they’ll pivot? 🙂 🙂

    No idea but an online buddy says The Fed will not meet tomorrow (Monday) after all.

    “Fed has apparently cxlld the Mon AM meeting. The announcement got 404’d with no comment. 5:30 Eastern is when Asia opens. We’ll know about “margin calls” being met about then, if we’re going to at all. Rumor has 3 EU banks are insolvent.”

    From what I’ve read some of these countries seem to have enough foreign reserves that they will most likely be able to sell them to strengthen their currencies as they come under attack.

    Apparently Japan, Switzerland, and the Nordic countries all have ample so likely will be able to fend off further devaluation.

    This is not the case for the UK and the rest of Europe though.

    JimNorCal permalink

    So … foreign countries are selling US treasuries to raise US dollars to buy oil and stuff (Japan, China, UK, many 3rd world nations, others).

    US Treasury is selling treasuries to cover US government overspending (deficit).

    US Federal Reserve is selling treasuries as part of Quantitative Tightening to reduce all the bonds on their balance sheet that they built up during QE.

    Who will be the buyer(s) for all these bonds and how high will rates have to rise before buyers step forward?

  31. 2022 October 2 10:04 pm
    [31]
    PresidentRonPaul! permalink

    Well I was only talking about selling assets to buy their own currencies (to prop it up)

    For example Switzerland skips treasuries to some extent and have been buying apple and amazon stock etc for the past 10 years to build reserves and to intentionally devalue their currency for exports.

    But they have so much they can afford to sell these assets whether treasuries or stocks or bonds etc in order to now buy their own currencies to prop them up.

    It seems as I said earlier Japan, Switzerland and some of the Nordics are the ones in the best

    31,

    I don’t know if I would classify Japan in ‘good shape’. Darn near the only buyer of Jap corp bonds is the Jap govt. Their bond market is in the same shape as Hiroshima after the blast.

    And the Yen is not in great shape either — https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/japan-spent-20-billion-its-intervention-support-yen

    33, “Darn near the only buyer of Jap corp bonds is the Jap govt”

    That’s my understanding too:
    1) the ONLY buyer for years (maybe even a decade or two)
    2) Japan (and China) are sitting on top of a giant pile of US gov’t bonds which they can sell off.
    Lots of 2nd world and 3rd world countries are hurting badly. There are multiple stories out of Lebanon of people holding up banks … not to steal money … to get their own deposits back which government has frozen due to econ distress

    I’m still waiting to see if the EU is collapsing like some commentators claim or if those stories are overblown.

    This one seems to think the jury is still out on the EU winter situation. Maybe not “millions shivering in the dark” but definitely econ stress.
    And problems will continue for several years before any balance is reached (who knows where that balance will be, for that matter)

    https://www.zerohedge.com/energy/europes-winter-energy-preparations-too-little-too-late

    Europe is entering a perfect storm of inflation, rising interest rates, energy shortage, and a lack of many realistic options for tackling the storm. It’s quite a plateful, and Europe is clearly struggling to handle it. But while the immediate problem is this winter and surviving it without governments getting overthrown, the bigger problem is that there is no end of the crunch in near sight.

    34,

    ” Japan (and China) are sitting on top of a giant pile of US gov’t bonds which they can sell off.”

    My understanding as well. The question is WHO do ‘they can sell off’ to? Can you imagine the discounting that would have to occur to have another party be willing to accept US debentures in a 8-9% (really 16%) environment??? The capital losses would be huge.

    JimNorCal permalink

    Great question. I wonder if there is some “early fulfillment clause” where the bond owner turns in the bond, stops getting interest payments but does get their principal returned

    I guess the value of the bond would not fall much below “face-value” because if you hold the bond to maturity you get your original purchase price back.

    39, the Consent Factory rant is pleasing. I liked this comment too, esp the final line.
    That’s my experience but not enough instances to confidently generate a theory

    “I have numerous acquaintances with iq over 180. They are all vaccinated and most boosted. Almost everyone in my extended family is vaxed and half are boosted. Meanwhile I have been shouting since the cruse ship Diamond Princess that warning flags were waving. Everyone I am close to has heard enough facts that they are totally discombobulated. But only a few didn’t baaa like sheep and line up for a shot. Funny coinky-dink, those that did not submit were the ones who did not watch tv.”

    I had to look it up…google says 1 out of every 2 million persons has an IQ of greater than 180.

    So that means out of 330 million people in the USA there are only 165 of them supposedly.

    Hard to believe there are even that many of them.

    If there was even one of these persons at a given University that would probably still be an outlier as most wouldn’t even have one.

    Will we get a Paul Revere moment?
    Hard to know. As govt becomes even more obviously corrupt, if the economy deteriorates past a certain level … maybe.
    But there’s plenty of evidence yet most people get on with their lives. Perhaps it is the case that most will simply do their best to keep out of the direct gaze of angry authorities and get along as best they can.
    Seems kinda wimpy to me though …
