The whole point of the ‘market’ -as we #Asutrians have been telling you for over a century- is that the prices formed by the countless interactions of our teeming humanity convey info of the best possible quality to help co-ordinate the most fruitful use of scarce resources 1/x
- the greater the nodes on that market network; the more individual needs and preferences expressed upon it, the better the solutions: the more enriched the ‘spontaneous order’ it throws up.
The scrambling of price signals by state lever-pullers is one evil we often discuss - 2/x
- what we don’t address often enough in financial markets (theoretically possessed of the densest and most widespread, most rapid, most frictionless networks of all) is the deadening effect of overconcentration and the move to oligopoly under which we are now suffering - 3/x

1/n | This piece from DW Documentary is informative to anyone who isn't already a professional investor or who just really knows there stuff. Think for most it is definitely a great watch, worth the time, especially for those less familiar with Eurodollar
2/n markets or the organization of the credit-based global financial system. And for those angry with CB's or like me find this all a bit amusing, DW takes the gloves off and goes attack-mode on CBs. It's effective too, as they speak the same language as the rest of us bumpkins.
3/n In short, #NIRP allows the anointed few to steal directly from banks without jail-time. #ZIRP makes the rich richer and reduces the prospects for homeownership among those who have yet to buy. Thus, the burden falls on the little guy and, as we have seen throughout history,

Jetzt #Schattenmacht #BlackRock im #ZDF.
Um 00:45 morgens.
Werden sicher wenige sehen.
#Merz & die 1% wird es freuen!
2. #BlackRock currently has just under US$7 trillion under management & with #Vanguard they control two thirds of all #ETFs.

Now if BlackRock decides to sell a bigger share because the market turns you can quickly get a "run for the exit", A RUN!

3. #BlackRock has major shareholdings in many of the global Top 500 companies.

In Germany BlackRock is a major shareholder in ALL #DAX-companies!

1\ Chad hits the nail on the head here. Global #CBs have encouraged the development of equity & credit markets that are completely divorced from economic reality led by unprecedented credit supporting inflated asset prices despite dire fundamentals. The #Fed has implemented 2\
2\ policies under which synthetically low interest rates and an endless credit coalescence have become the 'new norm.' But this only leads to artificially propped asset markets, atrophy in corporate capex, an institutionalized misallocation of capital, & a growing wealth gap. 3\
3\ Rather than invest in growth or innovate, when money's free corporations instead just buy up any semblance of competition (see the $GOOG graveyard). Complacency is everywhere. In the U.S., almost all industries are concentrated, w/either a local monopoly or an oligopoly. 4\

is market fairly valued or not?
understanding few basic concepts
The earnings that we generally expect to grow by 14-15% every year, assuming the real growth of GDP to be 8% and inflation to be 6%.
In the last 4-5 yrs the GDP growth has disappointed. (1/n)
That does not mean we believe the growth rate expected in future should be lowered, we still believe based on RBI and govt comments that India is a country where to employ the large number of people that join the workforce every year, we need 8% real GDP growth and (2/n)

1/ What an honor to be part of this lively debate about #bitcoin vs #WallSt (incl #ETFs & @Bakkt) w/ @GamerAndy, @aantonop, @JonathanMohan & @S_Murphy_PhD. Mainstreaming, rehypothecation, price suppression, privacy, early adoption, Trojan horses, Black Monday, custodian theft...
2/ ...hear @aantonop & I talk about rehypothecation coming to #bitcoin & #crypto, whether it's legal vs fraud vs merely unethical, how it's a form of #fractionalreservebanking, how it relates to @OverstockCEO's prior discussions of #WallSt's "bezzle" & how big that bezzle is...
3/ ...#BTC #ETFs offer exposure to #bitcoin price w/o owning it, controlling it or learning anything about it. "Physically-settled" ETFs entail zero transparency into the omnibus account where the BTC is stored--so you have no way to keep custodian honest & have no audit rights..
