Computer Dating 2021Good morning.
In math, the concept of delta refers to the rate of change.  For an economy based on expansion through debt creation, one key measure is how much growth is created through the addition of a new dollar of debt.  This is known as the fiscal multiplier.
While there are a lot of assumptions that go into it, the general consensus by economists is that the more debt in an economy, the less value for economic growth occurs.  In the 1950s, for instance, government investing in the national highway system led to more than $2 of economic growth for every $1 invested.  Today, the returns on a new dollar of government spending are closer to $0.50.  Logically, it doesn’t make sense to continue.  Politically, it does.
It’s this slowdown in growth despite spending – a new “delta variant” if you will – that could point to why many countries heavily in debt get into trouble.  It could only take one small event, like the collapse of a key investment bank or real estate developer, to ripple through the entire economy and create a debt collapse.  That may not happen in the US anytime soon, but these fears will likely remain while the Evergrande implosion continues to make headlines.  Stay cautious.

2 Simple Ways Of Building Faith In Yourself

Building Faith

Faith is one of the essential ingredients to success.  If you don’t believe in yourself, you won’t try your best.   When you don’t try your best, you simply won’t succeed.  When you don’t have faith in yourself, you will unconsciously self sabotage your efforts.  You will get frustrated and you will quit.

But how can you build faith in yourself when you feel like a failure?

Am I Good Enough!Review Past Success

We often forget how awesome we really are.  We forget some of the amazing things that we have accomplished in the past.  For me, its bouncing back after I lost everything.  For others, it might be recovering from an abusive childhood or an abusive relationship.  If you look hard enough, you will find that you have accomplished something of meaningful significance.  If you can’t find it, you haven’t looked hard enough.  It’s there.

But even if you have difficuity finding some meaningful achievements in your life, you can always took at the thousands of “against all odds” victories that many have lived before.  You will find them in multiple places: the bookstore, the library, online, movies that are based on a true story etc.

When you look at these stories, you will find that there are many who have started with less than you, yet they still achieved success anyway.  They may have started with less money, less time, less contacts and/or less education.  They had the odds stacked against them yet they still made it.  If they can do it, why can’t you?

You Didn't Come This FarTake Action

Sometimes building belief is just about starting even when you don’t think you are ready.  When you get started, you realize that it my be hard hard but not so hard that you can’t do it.  If you decide to set a mini goal for yourself, you’ll build confidence when you achieve it.  If your goal is to lose weight, maybe your first goal is to lose that first pound.  If your goal is to write a book, your first goal might be to write everyday for a week.  What’s important is that you set your goal and then achieve it (no matter how small).  That way you can build momentum, confidence and most importantly faith in yourself.

Did This Help You?
Create A Great Day!  😉

Shine Your Light on Others Real leadership, the kind of leadership that not only works but also has a lasting impact, is about building other people and shining your light on them, not on yourself.  Real leaders understand they are here to work for the team, and not the other way around. A mediocre leader tries to impress people with how important he or she is.  A great leader impresses upon people how important they are. People will be willing to do more and accomplish more when they feel recognized.  A little recognition goes a long way, but you have to

Good morning. Earnings season offers a big opportunity for markets to move in either direction.  With the market currently contending with the issues that come from rising interest rates, and the latest Covid variant (which Bill Gates say may be the last before Covid becomes more seasonal like the flu), this quarterly earnings report could be a make-or-break. While the data from the last quarter of 2021 are already in the rear-view mirror, early indications are that overall earnings for the S&P 500 are up 49 percent.  That’s hugely bullish, and some industries are likely to move higher no matter

Good morning. Wednesday’s inflation reading of a 7 percent annual increase is the biggest move higher for inflation since 1982.  However, behind all headlines are some good and bad news.  Good news?  The rate of inflation growth is slowing, and that may be confirmed over the next few months. And, within the data that goes into inflation, some components are still continuing to rise, such as energy and gasoline prices.  But other factors, like meat prices, are starting to decline. This more nuanced picture shows that many inflation components are also tied in with shortages, and that the rate of

Good morning. The stock market continues to struggle to find its footing this year, as attempts to move higher seem to be thwarted by a number of news items such as rising Covid cases.  However, combined with a low death rate (something the news rarely talks about anymore), the latest variant may allow the pandemic to become endemic to those who haven’t yet moved on. In the meantime, a number of investors are getting bullish following the latest selloff.  Of particular note is the renewed interest in Bitcoin, where billionaire Bill Miller states that half his personal portfolio is now

Good morning. At its lows yesterday, the Nasdaq hit correction territory, down 10 percent from its most recent high.  That comes as interest rates continue to creep higher.  With a week loaded with economic data, that’s no surprise. By the end of the week we should see the latest inflation data with a CPI release on Wednesday, as well as the PPI for producer data.  Retail sales will give a hint as to how the holidays performed compared to prior years, and a number of Federal Reserve members have speaking engagements which can move the markets this week. With the

Good morning. Going into Friday’s job reports, a full 86 percent of market participants queried believed that the Federal Reserve would hike interest rates in March.  Such a move, coming off of last week’s hawkish meeting minutes, would mean going from 0 percent interest rates to 0.25 percent. While not a huge move, it would be a sign that the economy is performing well and that the job market is getting close to normal.  While the latest jobs numbers had a big miss on Friday, enough jobs were created to drop the unemployment rate down to 3.9 percent.  Sure, the

January 09, 2021 Getting A Job Is a Job A recruiter asked a job candidate, “Why did you leave your last job?” The job applicant replied, “It was something my boss said.” “What did he say?” “You’re fired.” This person definitely needs a copy of my new book – “Getting a Job is a Job” – which comes out Jan. 5.  In it, I focus on bouncing back after being fired, dealing with rejection and the emotions people feel.  And I explain why you can’t take it personally.
