Everyone knows a 'trade deal' with China is in the offing. At the same time the US moves against Huawei guarantee any agreement will be putting lipstick on a pig.  This is the domestic war between the 'globalists' and the MAGA nationalists in the flesh. The outcome isn't determined and the back and forth is going to yank the markets around for the foreseeable future.

There is something that seems sort of desperate, or contrived, or both, with all these needle bottoms.

Sometimes it's better not to say anything but that isn't an option for you.

 

How about a story that since the Fed is never going to redeem some $2TN in Treasury notes the actual debt of the US is 10% lower than everyone thinks.

Don't you think the Fed is going to get back into the Tbill market. Like it was for its first 97 years..

That's an interesting thought. But it's not about the size of the debt, since virtually no one ever asks to be paid back. It's about the interest expense. No? 

An interesting thought would be under what  circumstances a broad swath of investors would want their money back.

But the size of the debt dominates our politics.  Dishonestly. The R side wailing and gnashing their teeth and the D side having no clue how the banking monetary system works. 
Sure it's about the interest cost. It can't be allowed to rise substantially. Here nor anywhere. There is never going to be another 1981. Not in our lifetimes, baring an asteroid strike. We are in the midst of a monetary reset that isn't recognized. We can piss an moan all we want about the meaning of debt and how it can't increase at a rapid clip forever. Forever is a long time.

The debt limit had been suspended but it will resume in March. Either that or it will be suspended again. Fat chance. It would be wise for the Treasury to borrow like crazy now. Especially with president Fruitcake at the helm. It's impossible to look at this situation and not seeing visions of crashing and burning.

This is absolutely correct. In fact 1981 was an idiotic mistake. It was THE black swan of the black swans. It wasnt Oct 87 like most believe.
