Wall Street's Longest Bull Run Shapes Winners & Losers
Tirthankar Chakraborty August 23, 2018
The U.S. stock market recently recorded its longest rally, largely fueled by the rise of solid consumer discretionary companies and the world’s most powerful tech firms, along with an unmatched era of easy money from low interest rates.
The broader market has garnered $18 trillion in wealth since the S&P 500 bottomed on Mar 9, 2009, creating potential winners.
The $18 trillion in wealth since the 2008 economic crash is of course the current $20 trillion in national debt tied to US TREASURY BOND SUBPRIMED MARKET.
However, not everyone has partaken in this decade-long rally. Let us thus take a look at the potential gainers and losers of the longest-ever bull run.
U.S. Stock Market on Longest Bull Run
The bull run of U.S. stocks became the longest in history at 3,453 days, completed on Aug 22. President Trump tweeted after the market closed that it’s the “longest bull run in the history of the stock market, congratulations America!”
The U.S. stock market’s longest-running upswing survived a decade of financial and political turmoil, thanks to the accommodative monetary policy, strength of the global economy, Barack Obama’s stimulus packages and Trump’s recent tax overhaul policy.
Needless to say, the underlying strength in fundamentals on the back of government outlays, better-than-expected earnings and upbeat consumer confidence are expected to push stocks higher for at least another year, if not longer.
Investing mantras like “sell in May and go away”, by the way, failed to deter the bull run, with the S&P 500 jumping nearly 7% since the beginning of May. The broader index that tracks 500 major public companies in America has traded almost nine and a half years, without tanking 20% or more. During this phase, the S&P 500 has soared 320%.
The 30-stock Dow Jones Industrial Average and the tech-laden Nasdaq Composite, in the meantime, rallied 290% and 520%, respectively.
Factors that Led to a Decade of Rising Prices on Wall Street
In the last decade since the Great recession, the Fed has kept interest rates at ultra-low levels and in the process pumped billions of dollars into the economy through quantitative easing. Such low interest rates helped consumers borrow money and spend in the economy, eventually leading to growth and driving stock prices higher.
Steady global growth also helped the stock market scale northward. Despite the ongoing trade war issues with the United States, Beijing managed to record slower growth avoiding a complete collapse. Eurozone’s sovereign debt crisis isn’t a concern anymore and risks stemming from Italy, Turkey, Venezuela and Argentina are more or less manageable.
Obama’s stimulus worth $1.4 trillion and Trump’s tax cuts fueled corporate profits and supported U.S. stocks. Trump has trimmed corporate tax rate from 35% to 21% from the beginning of this year, arguing that it will help companies to create more jobs.
Top-Performing Sectors in the Historic Bull Market
The recession compelled consumers to cut down on spending, but, in the bull run there has been a significant change in their attitude. Consumers have become more confident and are spending on almost everything, from jeans to handbags to home furnishings, as an uptick in personal income and employment are adding to their incomes. Thus, consumer-focused companies have benefitted, with the consumer discretionary sector leading the performance .
As recent as the second quarter of this year, disposable personal income increased $167.5 billion, or 4.5%, which followed a gain of $256.7 billion or 7% in the first quarter. At the same time, the current jobless rate dropped to 3.9%. This is the eighth time that the unemployment rate has fallen below the 4% mark since 1970. The unemployment rate is now at a nearly two-decade low .
Tech firms are also among the most valuable companies in the stock market. They have played a pivotal role in driving the record-setting bull market. They accounted for nearly 26% of the stock market’s value as of today, by far the largest, and up from 16% before the financial crisis.
Tech firms have become an integral part of people’s day to day lives, and the data they collect on users’ social interests and spending habits have become essential. While computer and software makers are having a ball backed by the White House’s initiative to trim tax rates, high-end gaming, emergence of Internet-of-Things and automation are driving demands for chips.
So far in this rally, sectors like financials, Industrials and Real Estate also witnessed a sharp rally.
Stocks That Are Big Winners
Biggest online retailer, Amazon.com, Inc. (AMZN - Free Report) , and the first to surpass a trillion dollar market capitalization, Apple Inc. (AAPL - Free Report) , are among the best performing stocks of the current bull market. While Amazon has gained a whopping 3,000% in this period, the manufacturer of mobile communication and personal computers skyrocketed more than 1,700%.
Amazon’s high-profile membership service has set a new milestone and is now well positioned to capture the next wave of online retail. Amazon’s aggressive expansion, unique market positioning and capability to disrupt new industries also helped its stock scale new highs despite lofty valuations. Amazon has a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) and the Zacks Consensus Estimate for its current-year earnings has trended 38.8% upward over the past 60 days.
Meanwhile, Apple — a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) company — has seen a monumental run, courtesy of products such as iPhone X, iPhone 8 and 8 plus, Apple watch, Apple TV, Macs and the upcoming HomePod “smart” speaker. Apples’ profit and revenues have been climbing steadily, while it has amassed a mind-boggling hoard of cash in the last six years. The gains have more or less come from the iPhone. The consensus estimate for the Cupertino-based company’s current-year earnings rose 2.5% in the last 60 days.
Chip makers such as Micron Technology, Inc. (MU - Free Report) and NVIDIA Corporation (NVDA - Free Report) are also considered to have contributed immensely to this bull run. While Micron’s shares climbed 1,763%, NVIDIA’s shares jumped 2,886%. But, it was an unlikely GGP Inc. , a company that invests in shopping centers, that left everyone in the dust. GGP returned over 7,000%, so far, in this bull run.
Not All Are Lucky
This bull market has not been kind to all. Shares of The Mosaic Company (MOS - Free Report) fell around 27% since Mar 9, 2009. In fact, it is one of the only four companies listed in the S&P 500 that has lost ground in this time span.
The other companies that have ended in the red are Apache Corporation (APA - Free Report) , Newmont Mining Corporation (NEM - Free Report) and Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (FCX - Free Report) , whose shares dropped 18.2%, 15.6% and 12.6%, respectively.
The Hottest Tech Mega-Trend of All
Last year, it generated $8 billion in global revenues. By 2020, it's predicted to blast through the roof to $47 billion. Famed investor Mark Cuban says it will produce ""the world's first trillionaires,"" but that should still leave plenty of money for regular investors who make the right trades early.
The $18 trillion in stock market wealth since the 2008 economic crash is of course the current $20 trillion in national debt tied to US TREASURY BOND SUBPRIMED MARKET.
We see the very SLIPPERY SLOPE of the 'US and THEM'-------maybe its the global 25% ------then again it may be the global 10%------ending fast with the global 99% AS LOSERS-----who will then be labelled HATERS------who are all simply US sovereign citizens black, white, and brown citizens.
'What that means is YOU only have to compete with 25% of the world’s population for whatever it is you want to accomplish in life'.
'Some people would say I’m underestimating it by putting the number of haters at 75%. Others have said it’s 90-99%'.
The ending of the LONGEST BULL RUN---AKA---ROBBER BARON few decades comes with the culling of those 5% freemason/Greek players aiding and abetting all these global banking frauds. As more and more of these players are culled---they are made NOSY NEIGHBORS AND THE GANG ----SEX WORKERS------the lowest caste in any society------
Here in Baltimore with my case of NOSY NEIGHBORS AND THE GANG sexual predators as SEX WORKERS-----I hear all the time from THE NETWORK-----I am being 'HIT' because I am a 'THEM' not an 'US' when in reality global banking 1% behind criminal black market PORN and SEX TRADE is 'HITTING EVERYONE'. I make it to what is a PUBLIC STONING ----ie. my illegal surveillance makes the public surveillance NETWORK----while everyone else's HITTING is posted directly to the DARK WEB PORN SITES.
The end of this LONGEST OF BULL RUNS-----brings of course MOVING FORWARD DEEP DEPRESSION and WW3.
Why Haters Make it so Much Easier For You to Succeed
Written by Jason Ferruggia Topics: Motivation
It’s pretty safe to say that at least 75% of the people on the planet are haters. That’s sad for them but good for you.
Because haters will never get anywhere or make anything of their lives. If you’re consumed by hate it’s impossible to do good things. You can’t achieve your dreams or help others when you’re wallowing in hate all day.
What that means is YOU only have to compete with 25% of the world’s population for whatever it is you want to accomplish in life.
How freaking great is that?
You’re not competing with everyone. Most people disqualify themselves from even entering the race. They’re an afterthought. The field is already narrowed down for you. It’s like you get to skip the first few brackets of the tournament and get right to the Final Four.
Some people would say I’m underestimating it by putting the number of haters at 75%. Others have said it’s 90-99%.
If you read any YouTube comments you’d probably lean toward the higher end of the spectrum. It’s a cesspool of hatred, bigotry and racism. For those who doubt racism exists anymore watch a YouTube video of any black guy doing anything at all. Then read the comments.
On second thought, don’t. It’s too disgusting.
Bill Maher joked that if Lincoln were around today and announced the Emancipation Proclamation via social media his Twitter comments would be “Fuck you, Jew beard.”
Albert Einstein, Martin Luther King and Jesus Christ, himself would get the same type of responses.
The point is that people sit around steaming and typing fucking YouTube comments all day!
They ain’t chasing dreams. They’re not competing for your spot. They’re at home rotting in the basement, pounding the keyboard and spewing venom.
So whatever it is you want to do in life, thank the haters for increasing your chances of success. There are less people competing for that top spot than you think.
A man who knows more about haters than most of us ever will.
What about if you’ve got your own slew of haters? It’s not as easy to ignore them as it is to ignore the haters shit talking other people.
Firstly, congratulate yourself. You can judge your success by the number of haters you have.
If you have an opinion, are original, real, fearless, take risks and put yourself out there you will have haters. They only chase the one carrying the ball.
The key is how you respond to them and how you let them affect you.
We’re all human so at some point the haters will get you down when they push the right buttons.
If they hit on something you have doubts or are insecure about you’ll get angry or bummed out and you may want to respond, or even start reigning blows down upon them like Frank Costanza.
It’s not worth it. If you let it go you get over it and they crawl back under their rock.
There have been times when I let someone get to me because they said something that I thought might be true. Maybe they’re right, maybe I do suck at XYZ.
But then I said, “fuck ‘em.” I can’t let other people control my life and my emotions. That’d be weak, pathetic bullshit.
Plus, I kind of like when someone tells me I suck at or can’t do something. I will do my best to prove them wrong all day. It’s fuel for the fire.
The hatred I get is nothing compared to what guys like Kobe Bryant or Mick Jagger must get. Mick’s girlfriend killed herself last week and I can only imagine that thousands of people found a way to bash him because of it.
Sadly, that’s the world we live in.
Now, I’m sure that there will be occasions in the future where I let haters affect me in some way and I will either respond or quietly steam about it for a few hours.
You can call me a hypocrite. And you’d be right.
Or you can do me a favor and remind me of what I wrote here.
I’m definitely not saying I’m perfect or that you should be either.
I’m just saying that together the #RenegadeNation can rise above the haters, do great things, and live lives worth talking about.
So fuck ‘em.
And thank ‘em.
For reducing the amount of competition, and for motivating the rest of us to do more than we’d be capable of without their words to fan our flames.
They’re just making it that much easier for the rest us to succeed.

What Were the Causes of Germany's Hyperinflation of 1921-1923?

Graph showing the extent of Germany's Hyperinflation - Hyperinflation Chart based on 1925 data
Admin, Jaredkrebsbach and EricLambrecht
Among the defining features of early twentieth century Europe and one of the contributing factors to World War II, was the economic maelstrom known as “hyperinflation” that ravaged Germany from 1921 until 1923. Although the short period is often overlooked in popular histories of the period, there is no denying the impacts that the process had on Germany, Europe, and the world. Because of the hyperinflation of the 1920s, the effects of the later worldwide Great Depression were accentuated in Germany, which ultimately undermined the legitimacy – at least in the eyes of the German people – of the Weimar government.
As the Weimar government attempted to fix the economy that was seemingly spiraling out of control, the German people turned to organizations on the far right and left wings of the political spectrum for answers. Despite eventually being able to end the crippling process of hyperinflation by 1923, the damage had already been done to Weimar government, which was living on borrowed time at that point.
In the nearly full century since Germany’s bout with hyperinflation, historians and economists have examined Weimar government records, private business reports, and anecdotal sources such as letters, in order to determine the extent of the process and ultimately how it began. Scholars have learned that Germany’s hyperinflation was actually quite a complicated process and there have been a number of factors identified as contributing to its origin. Essentially, all of the ingredients that went into creating Germany’s hyperinflation can be grouped into three categories: the excessive printing of paper money; the inability of the Weimar government to repay debts and reparations incurred from World War I; and political problems, both domestic and foreign.
Inflation and Hyperinflation
100 Billion Mark Bill
In order for one to understand the causes of Germany’s hyperinflation during the early 1920s, one must first understand how the process is related to and also different from a standard inflationary cycle. Simply stated, inflation is when the prices of goods rises, causing an imbalance in the money supply if it happens too quickly.
During an inflationary cycle, there is too much money in circulation, which causes the currency to devalue and the prices of commodities to increase in proportion. Although the reasons for a typical inflationary cycle are complicated, most economists point toward excessive printing of money or other currency manipulation by the central banks – “Quantitative Easing” during the last recession would be an example of this – as the primary factor.
Basic goods such as food and fuel are affected first, but eventually the process will influence the prices on everything. As troubling as inflation can be to an individual’s pocket book, or even an entire nation’s economy, it is nothing compared to the process of hyperinflation. The process of hyperinflation is when inflation continues to increase unabated until there is a 1000% in prices over the course of a year.  When the German economy transitioned from an inflationary to a hyperinflationary cycle in 1921, it was an extremely difficult burden for the average German to bear.
As the prices of goods soared at what were until then unimaginable levels, Germans increasingly found it difficult to purchase even the most basic items. For example, one loaf of bread coast twenty-nine pfenning when World War I began in 1914, but by the summer of 1923 that same loaf of bread cost 1,200 Reischsmarks and just a few months later, in November, the price had soared to an astronomical 428 billion Reichsmarks!  Because of the steep price increases Germans were forced to improvise in a number of different ways. Many would pay for meals as they ordered because the prices would increase significantly in the time it took to eat while others used the virtually worthless bills to heat their homes. All Germans, no matter their income level, had to devise ways to deal with the new economic reality.
The Causes of Germany’s Hyperinflation
As the average German struggled to survive during the crippling period of hyperinflation during the early 1920s, government leaders and economists searched for its cause in order to rectify the situation. They quickly found that there was not one single cause, but instead the cycle was brought forth by a number of contributing factors that combined to form a perfect storm of economic collapse. As noted above, the first place to look during any inflationary cycle is the amount of currency in circulation. In Germany’s case, one must first understand the historical context of the cycle. Before World War I, Germany was on the “Classical Gold Standard” system, which meant that all of its currency in circulation had to be backed by physical gold. Nations that were part of the Gold Standard – which included nearly every industrialized nation-state and their colonies in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries – generally saw very little inflation because the requirement to back all currency with gold placed restraint on the printing of money. Once the world entered World War I, though, the Gold Standard was quickly scrapped by countries that needed funds to pay for their war efforts. Germany was one such nation.
To fund its war effort, the Imperial German government incurred a 150 billion mark debt. It also began a policy of excessive currency printing so that by the end of the war there was six times more money in circulation than when the war began.  Once the war was over, the new German government – commonly referred to as the “Weimar” government for the capital it chose – continued the policy of excessive printing in a move to manipulate its currency in order to help the struggling economy. Weimar economists theorized that devaluing their currency would help Germany’s industrial sector rebuild because the prices of its exports would be more attractive to foreign investors. Foreign investors could simply buy more German exports with their own currency, which was worth much more than the Reichsmark.  The economists were correct in that German exports temporarily increased, but they failed to consider the plethora of other factors that were driving the inflationary cycle.
As one of the “losers” in World War I, Germany was forced to pay exorbitant reparations to the “winners,” primarily France and Belgium, for the damage done to those countries. The reparations payments, which were putative more than anything, resulted in an adverse balance of payments in Germany. The Weimar government, as well as German corporations, had difficulties obtaining credit abroad to fund industries that could inject money into the economy needed to make the payments, which combined with a loss of territory under the Treaty of Versailles, meant that Germany needed to import more raw materials to keep its industry going. The result was a further devaluation of the Reichsmark. As with the domestic debts it incurred from the war, the German government saw devaluation of the currency as a viable option, but the reality was that it gave itself little room for economic maneuvering. 
The fiscal corner that the Weimar government found itself in as the result of wartime debts incurred by and reparations forced upon the previous government, was further exacerbated by its own leaders’ inability to grasp the complexity of the situation that was rapidly unfolding. The Weimar government became extremely myopic and was plagued with what seemed to be eternal gridlock in the halls of the Reichstag (the German parliament). The left and right wing parties were nearly equal in the Reichstag in 1921. To many people today, this may seem like the optimal form of “checks and balances,” but in early 1920s Germany it resulted in political stalemate where neither side was willingly to give ground. Among some of the most fundamental issues that neither side could agree upon was the need to raise taxes for social services, such as the payment of military pensions for veterans.
In order to rectify the situation, the government decided to print more money, which in turn devalued the already plummeting Reichsmark. The inability to provide for basic social services with non-inflated currency stemmed from the Weimar government’s inability to grasp the scope of the situation. Officials and economists in the Weimar government viewed Germany’s economic woes through the lens of the nineteenth century instead of seeing it as it really was – an economic process taking place within a complex system that was integrated with the economies of the other industrialized nations. 
The final nail in the German economy’s coffin of the early 1920s was actually two unforeseen events that took place both inside and outside of Germany’s borders. The first event was the assassination of German foreign minister Walther Rathenau in June 1922. The assassination caused political panic in the increasingly unstable Germany and set off a speculation crisis that saw the Reichsmark plunge in value on world currency markets. Rathenau’s assassination was followed by the occupation of the Ruhr Valley by French and Belgian military forces in January 1923. The French and Belgian governments hoped that by occupying the mineral and industrially rich Ruhr Valley they could force the Germans to make reparations payments; but the occupation had the opposite effect. The occupation of the Ruhr further crippled industrial output, which in turn devalued the German currency even more. By November 1923, the Reichsmark was worth only one-trillionth of its pre-World War I value. 
Freikorps Preparing for Action on the Streets of Germany in the 1920s
Although Germany’s bout with hyperinflation was a gradual process and took a while to peak, it ended rather quickly. After numerous failed attempts to alleviate the process, the Weimar government introduced a new currency known as the Rentenmark in 1923. Unlike the Reichsmark, which was not backed by gold or any other tangible asset, the Rentenmark was back by real estate. When the Rentenmark was first introduced in October 1923, one bill was worth an astonishing one trillion Reichsmarks!  Although the Weimar government was able to effectively end the hyperinflation by the end of the year, the damage had already been done to the German economy, political system, and greater society.
Among the many different groups who suffered due to the hyperinflation and never were really able to get back on their feet, were members of the German middle class. Middle class workers and small business owners were especially hit hard when they saw their savings evaporate overnight.  Many middle class retirees found themselves back at work and many others had to rely on the goodwill of friends and family just to make ends meet. All of this resulted in a loss of confidence in the Weimar government, which was further exposed as being weak and ineffective when Germany had a brief economic Depression in 1925-26. Despite the hardships that hyperinflation caused in Germany, there were some who were able to profit from it.
There are always people who prosper during times of economic distress, even during a near collapse. In the case of Germany’s hyperinflation, people who were in debt came out ahead since the amount owed on any debt only increases due to interest rates; debtors were able to use inflated currency to quickly pay off their debts. Those with a keen sense of business acumen quickly picked up on this and took out loans to buy items of real value – real estate, gold, and artworks for instance – which they were then able to quickly turn into profit. Stock market speculators and exporters of German goods also came out ahead financially once the smoke of the hyperinflation cleared in 1923. 
Perhaps the biggest beneficiaries of Germany’s hyperinflation, though, were the far rightwing and leftwing political parties and paramilitary organizations. As the Weimar government appeared to be unable to deal with the economic problems of the 1920s, more and more Germans began turning to extreme organizations for answers. Rightwing paramilitary groups such as the Freikorps engaged in armed battles with communist organizations like the Spartacus League on the streets of nearly every major German city during the 1920s, which left hundreds dead by the end of the decade.  Eventually, the National Socialist German Worker’s Party presented itself as a viable alternative to what it described as a weak and degenerate Weimar government.
The period after World War I was an extremely critical juncture in world history where the stage was set for World War II. Among the most important factors that led to World War II, albeit indirectly, was the hyperinflationary cycle Germany experienced from 1921 through 1923. During that period, the Weimar government watched as prices soared over 1000% and sat helplessly as its currency essentially lost all of its value. The factors that contributed to that short but devastating cycle can be attributed to excessive printing of currency, the inability to pay off wartime debts and reparations, and a couple of major political events. Although the Weimar government was eventually able to quell the hyperinflationary cycle, the German people lost confidence in the government and so began looking elsewhere for political answers.
Back in OBAMA era 2013-4 all the economic media and academics let us know that with the growing NATIONAL DEBT----with corporate bond debt soaring-----and with Wall Street basically imploding its last revenue source with that US TREASURY BOND subprime fraud------there would be no avenue for US FED to take but raise INTEREST RATE as high as 3.5-5%. HYPER-INFLATION back in 2013-2014 was the TALK OF THE TOWN----flash forward to 2020 election year and the US FED is VERY QUIET about those goals-------but you can BETCHA we will see those US FED INTEREST RATES above 3% moving higher AFTER the election as we see below.
'Fed policymakers' median forecast puts the federal funds rate at 3.1 percent at the end of 2020 and 2021, according to the projections'.
What a 3.5% US FED interest rate hike would do to the US NATIONAL DEBT----would make a permanent annual interest rate debt to global banks of $100 trillion by mid-2030s--------
'As shown in the graph, and explored in further detail here, a 5% increase in interest payments for the federal government would cause the level of federal debt to rise to $94 trillion over the next 20 years because of the compounding of interest, and a 10% increase in interest rates would cause the federal debt to climb to well over $200 trillion'.
JUST AS TRUMP SAID----HE DIDN'T CARE IF NATIONAL DEBT WENT UP TO $100 TRILLION.
'Commentary: National Debt Could Top $100 Trillion by 2037 If Congress Ignores Trump Budget
March 15, 2019 Admin'
When reading national media knowing it is FAKE NEWS-----knowing global banking gives FAKE DATA------we know HYPER-INFLATION was planned during BERNANKE'S era.
The other FICTION---MYTH-MAKING AND PROPAGANDA about this coming HYPER-INFLATION----is that it will be GOOD for the COMMON MAN. Lot's of media out there saying our US 99% WE THE PEOPLE should wish for HYPER-INFLATION.
Finally, we discussed how TRUMP'S TARIFF policy was simply installing TRANS PACIFIC TRADE PACT------and would have NO EFFECT on global corporations but kill our US domestic small/regional businesses. Well, look below to see what a US FED rate at 3.5% bringing HYPER-INFLATION would do to these same US small and regional businesses depending on IMPORTED MATERIALS/PRODUCTS.
'Finally, import-oriented businesses struggle when inflation is high'.
This will make it impossible for US to be a SOVEREIGN NATION------as WORLD BANK IMF is brought in to 'help' the US manage its economy.

Is U.S. Hyperinflation Imminent?
Advisor Network I provide analysis on the economy, investing and financial planning.
According to renowned economist Marc Faber, hyperinflation in the U.S. is a certainty within the next 10 years. Mr. Faber has correctly predicted some of the most important financial events in the modern era including, the stock market crash of 1987; the rise of oil, precious metals and other assets in the 2000's; and on Fox News in February 2007, he said a U.S. stock market correction was imminent. The market peaked six months later. Is Mr. Faber correct this time? Is U.S. hyperinflation imminent in the next 10 years?
In this article, we will discuss the effects of inflation and hyperinflation, consider an example of hyperinflation and discuss the possibility of this occurring in the U.S. One thing is certain, if hyperinflation does materialize, it would be devastating to our economy. Let's begin with inflation.
The Fed is the primary catalyst for inflation. Moreover, it actually attempts to create a low to moderate level of inflation. Why does the Fed want inflation? Because inflation is a signal of a growing economy. Additionally, if inflation is too high, the economy will suffer. If it's too low, deflation becomes a threat. Therefore, low to moderate inflation is the goal.
Inflation may be defined as "A general rise in prices" and occurs when demand outpaces supply. Actually, there are a couple of ways inflation can manifest and the Federal Reserve's monetary policy lies at the heart of both. For example, when the Fed lowers interest rates, money is cheaper to borrow. Next, when the Fed expands the money supply, money is more plentiful, which again, makes it easier to borrow. Finally, when the Fed reduces bank reserve requirements (i.e.: The percentage of each deposit which must be held in reserve at the Fed), banks have more money to lend. All three create an environment which makes money more plentiful and cheaper for consumers and businesses to borrow. Of course, this assumes consumers and businesses are willing to take on debt. Another consequence of a significant expansion in the money supply is the devaluation of the currency. In essence, when there is a substantial increase in the supply of an item, including currencies, its value declines. Hence, it takes more dollars to buy the same goods and services. In a literal sense, inflation is the result of a decline in the value of a currency. Therefore, if Fed policy is successful, the expectation is that demand will rise, companies will expand their workforce and/or spend more money on technology to meet the increased demand and the economy will grow. However, if demand increases too rapidly, inflation will result.
Although inflation is defined as a general increase in prices, during such periods, prices on some items may rise while others may fall. Therefore, we shouldn't presume that if home prices rise; food prices, auto prices, etc., will also rise. Actually, prices on specific items rise and fall based on the Fed's monetary policy plus supply and demand for the particular product or service. For example, let's assume XYZ Company produces widgets and has a monopoly on them (i.e.: no other company is legally allowed to produce them). Further assume this company makes 8,000 widgets each month, but has the capacity to produce up to 10,000 if necessary. In this case, the company's "Capacity Utilization" rate (i.e.: the company's current percentage of maximum capacity) would be 80% (8,000 / 10,000). However, if demand were to suddenly increase to 15,000 widgets per month, XYZ would have to expand its facility, hire more staff and/or purchase technology to meet the increased demand. This would cause the price per unit to rise (at the production level), which would necessitate a price increase to the consumer in order to maintain the same margin of profit. If inflation became too elevated, it would be called hyperinflation. Let's look at this now.
Hyperinflation is much less common than inflation. Unfortunately, there is no specific numerical definition for hyperinflation. However, there is some consensus. For example, a few economists suggest that an inflation rate of 50% per month would constitute hyperinflation. Using this rate, a junior cheeseburger deluxe at Wendy's, which costs about one dollar today, would cost $130 a year from now and nearly $17,000 in 2 years. Needless to say, hyperinflation is a destructive force which is best avoided.
Could we actually see hyperinflation in America?
Has hyperinflation occurred frequently?
The Nineteenth century was the century of deflation, whereas the Twentieth century was the period of inflation. Hyperinflation occurred as many as 55 times over the past century. Notable countries include: China, Russia, Brazil, Germany, Argentina, Poland, Chile and others.
Could it happen in America?
Many experts say no.
Because the U.S. has a very proactive Fed, and there's such a large amount of historical data from countries that have experienced hyperinflation, we should be able to learn from the past mistakes of others and avoid it. However, since inflation and hyperinflation are triggered by an excess of currency, which is not backed by gold or any other substance of value (i.e.; called "fiat" currency), there is no limit to the amount of dollars the U.S. can print (though we don't print that much actual paper these days). Therefore, we need to briefly discuss the gold standard.
There are a few different types of gold standards. However, in the interest of brevity, we'll only skim the surface on this subject. Generally speaking, when a country adopts a gold standard, the amount of currency it may issue is limited by the amount of gold it holds in reserve. During times of war, a country's need for capital increases, so abandoning the gold standard allows a country to expand its money supply to finance the war. This has been the typical path for countries during wartime. Today, there are no countries on the gold standard. In the absence of this, again there is no limit to amount of currency a country may print. This can be problematic, especially in smaller, developing nations. The absence of a gold standard was a key factor in one of the worst cases of hyperinflation in history. I'm referring to Germany following WWI.
Germany's Hyperinflation After WWI
When WWI began, Germany abandoned its gold standard in order to print more currency to finance the war. When the war ended, Germany admitted they had started the war and agreed to pay reparations to various countries, with France being the major beneficiary. The details were included in the Treaty of Versailles, the document which formally ended the war. The amount Germany was required to pay was enormous. In fact, the total was close to 226 billion gold marks (approx $846 billion in current U.S. Dollars). After it became evident that Germany was unable to meet this demand, in 1921 the burden was reduced to 132 billion marks, the equivalent of $442 billion in today's dollars.
Due to the war, Germany's economy was in shambles. Moreover, with many of its factories in ruin, its production capacity was severely reduced. Hence, even the reduction to 132 billion marks was well beyond its ability to repay. However, to help assure compliance, France and Belgium deployed troops to Germany from 1923 to 1925. During this period, Germany's central bank, the Reichsbank, issued a massive amounts of marks to repay its debt. However, because Germany had abandoned the gold standard, its currency was backed only by the full faith and credit of its government. Between this monetary explosion and the loss of confidence in its currency, the German mark experienced a massive decrease in value, which resulted in severe hyperinflation. To better grasp the situation at that time, prices doubled during the five years from 1914 to 1919. They doubled again in only five months in 1922. In 1914, the ratio between the mark and the U.S. Dollar was 4.2 German Marks to one dollar. By 1923, it took 4.2 trillion marks to equal one dollar. The German currency had totally collapsed. This also contributed to a brief, but sharp recession in the U.S. (August 1918 to March 1919).
Who Benefits And Who Suffers From Inflation And Hyperinflation?
The beneficiaries of high inflation include any individual or entity who has borrowed money at a fixed rate. High inflation also benefits investors who own commodities, and businesses that derive a significant portion of revenue from exports. Who loses with inflation? First, the overall economy suffers. Specifically, consumers lose purchasing power and their standard of living erodes. Lenders are also hurt as are those who need to borrow. The latter group suffers because lenders raise their interest rates to hedge against inflation. In short, money becomes much more expensive. Finally, import-oriented businesses struggle when inflation is high.
Hyperinflation, on the other hand, hurts almost everyone. It decimates the middle class. It can cause massive bank failures, especially banks with large amounts of outstanding fixed-rate loans. And, although borrowers who have a fixed rate loan do benefit, because prices on everything else are increasing so rapidly, any benefit from the loans is erased by the extreme cost of goods and services. There really are no winners with hyperinflation.
The Potential for Hyperinflation in the U.S. Today
Could the U.S. experience hyperinflation?
If you look at the amount of the Feds monetary expansion since 2008, then you would likely conclude yes. For example, when the financial crisis began, the Fed's balance sheet was around $800 billion. Today, it is over $4 trillion. That's a tremendous increase. However, it's important to note that the majority of this new money is sitting at the Federal Reserve and has not actually entered the economy. If this were not the case, if all this capital were allowed to enter the economy, inflation would be very high. Perhaps not hyperinflation, but I believe it would be much higher than it was during the late 1970s.
Why would the Fed flood the market with so much money if it wasn't intended to enter the economy?
Because during the 2008 crisis, not counting the banks that did go out of business, a large number of other banks nearly collapsed. The actions of the Fed were nothing short of brilliant. They created a glut of new money through T.A.R.P., QEII, Operation Twist and QEIII. Then they offered to pay interest to banks on their reserves, which from a financial standpoint made it profitable to banks to leave large amounts on reserve. Hence, with the majority of this new money in reserve, bank balance sheets have been greatly strengthened. It's important to note that the financial sector must be strong if the economy is to thrive. The Feds challenge will come when it's time to unwind it all.
With over $4.2 trillion on the Fed's balance sheet ($3.8 trillion more than at the beginning of the crisis), when demand finally increases and lenders need more capital to lend, or when the Fed decides not to pay interest on bank reserves, the Fed will have to reverse course and, instead of buying bonds (which removes cash from its balance sheet and increases the money supply), it will be selling bonds (removing cash from the economy, reducing the money supply). This is where things could get dicey. This is also why the Fed would like to end QEIII as soon as possible. Because the longer it continues, the more money there will be to remove and this could cause a severe dislocation in the financial markets. In other words, when the Fed ceases QEIII, the stock market could decline along with bond prices.
Is Marc Faber correct in his prediction?
Will the U.S. experience hyperinflation within the next 10 years?
It all depends on consumer demand and the leadership of the new Fed Chair, Janet Yellen. It will also depend on economic growth in the rest of the world. The road out of the 2008 crisis has been masterfully maneuvered thus far. Will the next leg of the monetary journey be as smooth? I believe the Fed has done an outstanding job, all things considered. However, with a new chairperson, will the Fed continue to guide the economy with the same precision? My guess is that it will. After all, there are a lot of very bright individuals making decisions, and that gives me confidence. We'll see if Mr. Faber is right. For the sake of all of us, I hope he's wrong.
