..."globalization is doomed"...
- not when it comes to the co-ordinated fake money spraying around at minimum in the G7 if not G20

Lobbycracy. Ask some state loan or guarantee when you buy your jet.

haifa ac  14:31:27 GMT - 05/15/2020  
"The use of private jets seems to be booming."

Any where you look--it seems that globalization is doomed for a while.
This was Yuval Harari divine message and the basis of Kai Fu Li investment philosophy.
Seems we are going to kvetch and worry more about our own little community and care less about our fellow man.
I intend to purchase a few private jets myself.

Is the economic consensus useful anymore?

▪ Economics is not precise. While the media demand the precision of decimal points, economics is mainly about identifying trends. The virus is making this all the more obvious.
▪ This is not a normal downturn. This is a sudden policy-induced downturn—like turning off a light switch. Consumers and firms may react differently when the “light switch” is turned on again. The causes of this downturn are less complex than normal, and that may alter consumer uncertainty about the recovery. Normal economic models may not work.
▪ In addition, economic data is largely nonsense in a lockdown. Data quality was getting worse before the virus. Now, no one is filling in survey forms. Economists are asked to forecast what statisticians guess is happening in the economy. It is possible that economists are right and statisticians are wrong.
▪ This means a lack of precision, which makes an "economic consensus" a meaningless number. Forecasts for the US April unemployment rate ranged from 11.6% to 22.0%. The US December unemployment range was 3.4% to 3.7%. Estimates for second quarter Euro area GDP range from –1.6% y/y to –19.8% y/y. Describing a number as above or below consensus is not helpful. Economists—and markets—cannot be that precise about today's world.

Look what negative interest rates have done to European
stocks. Since negative rates among the worst

government debt explode to unseen levels even before Corona.

NY JM  11:10:36 GMT - 05/14/2020  
Trump wants negative rates because he was told it would be good for stocks.
His strong dollar comments make no sense other than he was told it is needed to be able to fund the ballooning deficit.

I am asked a lot recently: Will a war break out between China and the US? My answer: The two countries increasingly dislike each other, various conflicts are rising, therefore, risk for a military clash is increasing. But meanwhile, they both don't want a war. Am I right?

To counteract the abuse of anti-China litigation over COVID-19, Beijing is already preparing to take the necessary punishment measures against some members of the US Congress, the state of Missouri, and relevant individuals and entities, sources told Global Times
