Extreme Racism and Divisiveness Today: Real-Life Macro and Micro Solutions

As a new generation emerges into the workforce, it brings with it revolution, be it technological, social, or political. They have fresh new ideas and their own, unique values, which grow to dominate as the older generation filters into retirement. That’s part of what’s going on today in America, where extreme divisiveness and racial stresses threaten to tear us apart. (Another part is that this is all part of a larger 250-Year Revolutionary Cycle, and an 84-Year Populist Movement Cycle, to name just two.)

Stanley Druckenmiller On Liquidity, Macro, & Margins

What’s obvious is obviously wrong… The present is already in the price… And it’s margins and capacity that matter… ~ Stanley Druckenmiller The following are some more words of wisdom from Druck pulled from an old Barron’s interview in 88’.

A Review Of Javier Gonzalez’s “How to Make Money with Global Macro”

The following review is straight from Operator Kean, a member of the Macro Ops Hub. To contact Kean, visit his website here.
