Bits and Pieces – 20180306, Tuesday

Commentary: If Trump continues, trade wars will be the start of the end ushering in the collapse of most markets and pricking the debt bubble. This is serious stuff. Be sure to see the 19 second video of our Rime Minister in the next section.

Grand Solar Minimum (GSM): Believe it.

Trade Wars: On the trade war front, George Friedman explains why Canada will lose: Trade War and the Correlation of Forces. The other reason is our government. This 19 second video is a must watch: Watch As Canada’s Trudeau “Explains” Trade With The US. Pathetic is one of the words that comes to mind that is reprintable. Canadian supply management is in Trump’s cross-hairs: Trump Slams Canada, Mexico: “Tariffs Will Only Came Off If New, Fair NAFTA Is Signed”.

I wonder if we might consider placing tariffs on US financial instruments and investmrnts?

The Europeans seem to understand it at least: Europe Will Retaliate To Trump Trade War With 25% Tariffs Targeting GOP States.

Is this where we go from here: Trade Wars Set To Go Nuclear: US Considering Broad Curbs On Chinese Imports?

WWIII: Here is an interesting analysis of Russia’s strategic ability: Putin’s Ultimatum is the Next Stage of the War.

Climate: Martin Armstrong has been forecasting the current global cooling cycle for some time. Here’s his latest comment: Britain Buried in Snow Thanks to Global Warming & No Food?

Bits and Pieces: Bitcoin mining is energy intensive as we have discussed before. Here are a couple of examples that speak to the problem: NY City Weighs 18-Month “Moratorium” On Bitcoin-Mining and How Iceland became the bitcoin miners’ paradise. Apart from jurisdictions with cheap legal electricity, Bitcoin mining has encouraged theft of power: Chinese Bitcoin Miners Busted for Electricity Theft and Brothers Face Jail Time for Stealing Power to Mine Bitcoins. And in a new twist: Thieves steal 600 powerful bitcoin-mining computers in huge heist.

Canada Corner: A short read: Foreign Investment into Canada Has Collapsed by 26% in 2017. I’m not in a position to comment but it doesn’t seem good. But I could comment on the policies of our court jester: Oh Canada! The Looming Economic Meltdown. We are in so much trouble.
