January 25, 2014: Oh, Gross!

Another audible week. Last week we covered various aspects of the US debt. This week we took the other side of the debt/GDP discussion and talked about US Gross Domestic Product. Key topics:

  • What is GDP?
  • How is GDP?
  • How is GDP manipulated?
  • Why is GDP a lot less than important than most people think?

After this show, you will know why most of the people talking about GDP on TV are blowing smoke (to put it kindly).

January 18, 2014: You Can Owe Me…

Well, after putting together a format for the show, we called an audible and talked about debt for most of the hour. Between the Federal government debt ($17T), personal debt ($16T) and everything else ($24T), we have borrowed $57 trillion from future demand, living way beyond our means now and diminishing our lifestyles later. This doesn’t even count our unfunded liabilities. This debt is one of many reasons we are unlikely to see significant real (after inflation) growth in this country for years, if not decades. We also focused on some bogus Social Security accounting and a little bit of trade deficit (which is also temporarily allowing us to live beyond our means). Finally, we talked about some key market levels and a few trading ideas.

January 11, 2014: Introduction to Next Week In Stocks

Starting today, we are on two new stations here in the valley:  550 KFYI on Saturdays at 1pm and 1230 KFYI Business on Saturdays at noon. Since we have a number of new listeners, today we talked about the format and philosophy of the show, as well as our thoughts about the market and the world (a recurring theme). Going forward, the plan for the show is to dedicate each segment of the show to a certain topic area, but as always, the overall focus of the show will be on stories and perspectives that you are not hearing elsewhere. To start we will be doing:

  • Segment 1:  What in the world is going on? A discussion of important world events and how they impact you and your money.
  • Segment 2:  What’s happening here? An analysis of the US economy and political scene with a specific focus on how domestic events will impact you and your money.
  • Segment 3:  Potpourri.  A discussion of big picture trading and investing ideas. In this segment we will also answer your questions on investments, markets or anything else that you send us that we find to be of interest.
  • Segment 4:  Ideas for next week. A look at supply and demand levels for key markets and trading ideas for the following week.

If you would like to submit a question to the show, or to give us feedback, please send an email to:  phoenix@tradingacademy.com.  Also, check out our sister show, “The Right Side Of The Trade” on the following stations:
