China Can Play The Game…But They Are Losing
Brian Wesbury, Chief Economist at First Trust:
  “The “supply chain” is leaving China! The longer they wait, the more they lose. They can play “chess”. They can think in “millennia”. But the longer they wait to do a deal, the more China loses.”

Never Count Your Money At The Table
John Hussman:
  “You never count your money while you’re sittin’ at the table. It’s important to remember that the completion of a hypervalued market cycle can wipe out *every bit* of the stock market’s total return over-and-above T-bills, going back not just a few years, but for over a decade. (See below).

Reality Check
Sven Henrich: 
“Reality check: after 10 years of nonstop intervention & record debt expansion we’re right back where we started: Without more stimulus, rate cuts, and coming QE everything falls apart. What’s that tell you about the true state of economies and financial markets?”

The Evidence Is In
Daniel Lacalle, Chief Economist at Tressis: 
“Monetary Stimulus Does Not Work. The Evidence Is In. Thinking that the ineffectiveness of printing money will be solved with more money printing (helicopter money, MMT etc) is simply insane. (See below).
