MAGAnomic Trade Policy Interacting With Financial Systems – Multinational Wall Street vs Main Street U.S.A…

Originally outlined a year ago. Reposted by request, because we are watching it play out in real time: Believe me, at the heart of the professional/political opposition the issue is the money; there are trillions at stake.

President Trump’s MAGAnomic trade and foreign policy agenda is jaw-dropping in scale, scope and consequence. There are multiple simultaneous aspects to each policy objective; they have been outlined for a long time even before the election victory in November ’16.

If you get too far into the weeds the larger picture can be lost. CTH objective is to continue pointing focus toward the larger horizon, and then at specific inflection points to dive into the topic and explain how each moment is connected to the larger strategy.

Today we repost an earlier dive into how MAGAnomic policy interacts with multinational Wall Street, the stock market, the U.S. financial system and perhaps your personal financial value. Again, reference and source material is included at the end of the outline.

If you understand the basic elements behind the new dimension in American economics, you already understand how three decades of DC legislative and regulatory policy was structured to benefit Wall Street and not Main Street. The intentional shift in fiscal policy is what created the distance between two entirely divergent economic engines.

REMEMBER […] there had to be a point where the value of the second economy (Wall Street) surpassed the value of the first economy (Main Street).

Investments, and the bets therein, needed to expand outside of the USA. hence, globalist investing.

However, a second more consequential aspect happened simultaneously. The politicians became more valuable to the Wall Street team than the Main Street team; and Wall Street had deeper pockets because their economy was now larger.

As a consequence Wall Street started funding political candidates and asking for legislation that benefited their interests.

When Main Street was purchasing the legislative influence the outcomes were -generally speaking- beneficial to Main Street, and by direct attachment those outcomes also benefited the average American inside the real economy.

When Wall Street began purchasing the legislative influence, the outcomes therein became beneficial to Wall Street. Those benefits are detached from improving the livelihoods of main street Americans because the benefits are “global”. Global financial interests, multinational investment interests -and corporations therein- became the primary filter through which the DC legislative outcomes were considered.

There is a natural disconnect. (more)

As an outcome of national financial policy blending commercial banking with institutional investment banking something happened on Wall Street that few understand. If we take the time to understand what happened we can understand why the Stock Market grew and what risks exist today as the financial policy is reversed to benefit Main Street.

President Trump and Treasury Secretary Mnuchin have already begun assembling and delivering a new banking system.

Instead of attempting to put Glass-Stegal regulations back into massive banking systems, the Trump administration is creating a parallel financial system of less-regulated small commercial banks, credit unions and traditional lenders who can operate to the benefit of Main Street without the burdensome regulation of the mega-banks and multinationals. This really is one of the more brilliant solutions to work around a uniquely American economic problem.

♦ When U.S. banks were allowed to merge their investment divisions with their commercial banking operations (the removal of Glass Stegal) something changed on Wall Street.

Companies who are evaluated based on their financial results, profits and losses, remained in their traditional role as traded stocks on the U.S. Stock Market and were evaluated accordingly. However, over time investment instruments -which are secondary to actual company results- created a sub-set within Wall Street that detached from actual bottom line company results.

The resulting secondary financial market system was essentially ‘investment markets’. Both ordinary company stocks and the investment market stocks operate on the same stock exchanges. But the underlying valuation is tied to entirely different metrics.

Financial products were developed (as investment instruments) that are essentially wagers or bets on the outcomes of actual companies traded on Wall Street. Those bets/wagers form the hedge markets and are [essentially] people trading on expectations of performance. The “derivatives market” is the ‘betting system’.

♦Ford Motor Company (only chosen as a commonly known entity) has a stock valuation based on their actual company performance in the market of manufacturing and consumer purchasing of their product. However, there can be thousands of financial instruments wagering on the actual outcome of their performance.

There are two initial bets on these outcomes that form the basis for Hedge-fund activity. Bet ‘A’ that Ford hits a profit number, or bet ‘B’ that they don’t. There are financial instruments created to place each wager. [The wagers form the derivatives.] But it doesn’t stop there.

Additionally, more financial products are created that bet on the outcomes of the A/B bets. A secondary financial product might find two sides betting on both A outcome and B outcome.

Party C bets the “A” bet is accurate, and party D bets against the A bet. Party E bets the “B” bet is accurate, and party F bets against the B. If it stopped there we would only have six total participants. But it doesn’t stop there, it goes on and on and on…

The outcome of the bets forms the basis for the tenuous investment markets. The important part to understand is that the investment funds are not necessarily attached to the original company stock, they are now attached to the outcome of bet(s). Hence an inherent disconnect is created.

Subsequently, if the actual stock doesn’t meet it’s expected P-n-L outcome (if the company actually doesn’t do well), and if the financial investment was betting against the outcome, the value of the investment actually goes up. The company performance and the investment bets on the outcome of that performance are two entirely different aspects of the stock market. [Hence two metrics.]

♦Understanding the disconnect between an actual company on the stock market, and the bets for and against that company stock, helps to understand what can happen when fiscal policy is geared toward the underlying company (Main Street MAGAnomics), and not toward the bets therein (Investment Class).

The U.S. stock markets’ overall value can increase with Main Street policy, and yet the investment class can simultaneously decrease in value even though the company(ies) in the stock market is/are doing better. This detachment is critical to understand because the ‘real economy’ is based on the company, the ‘paper economy’ is based on the financial investment instruments betting on the company.

Trillions can be lost in investment instruments, and yet the overall stock market -as valued by company operations/profits- can increase.

Conversely, there are now classes of companies on the U.S. stock exchange that never make a dime in profit, yet the value of the company increases. This dynamic is possible because the financial investment bets are not connected to the bottom line profit. (Examples include Tesla Motors and Amazon and a host of internet stocks.) It is this investment group of companies that stands to lose the most if/when the underlying system of betting on them stops or slows.

Specifically due to most recent U.S. fiscal policy, modern multinational banks, including all of the investment products therein, are more closely attached to this investment system on Wall Street. It stands to reason they are at greater risk of financial losses overall with a shift in fiscal policy.

That financial and economic risk is the basic reason behind Trump and Mnuchin putting a protective, secondary and parallel, banking system in place for Main Street.

Big multinational banks can suffer big losses from their investments, and yet the Main Street economy can continue growing, and have access to capital, uninterrupted.

Bottom Line: U.S. companies who have actual connection to a growing U.S. economy can succeed; based on the advantages of the new economic environment and MAGA policy, specifically in the areas of manufacturing, trade and the ancillary benefactors.

Meanwhile U.S. investment assets (multinational investment portfolios) that are disconnected from the actual results of those benefiting U.S. companies, and as a consequence also disconnected from the U.S. economic expansion, can simultaneously drop in value even though the U.S. economy is thriving.

      Good question! Like to throw an outlier in parralel with your excellent observation:
      Worse case scenario, the cabal of deep state/globalists, cause some sort of civil war in order to create order, their one world order that is, out of chaos. Or at the conclusion of Mr. Trumps presidency, 1st or 2nd, these usurpers are waiting to pounce, in order to stop MAGA and rule with an iron fist & jackboot, to secure raw naked power, ending the USofA as we know it.
      We can’t rule out a palace coup or assassination of Trumps presidency, hence the end of us Deplorable’s peaceful color revolution of 11-9-16, and our will of the Governed.

      I believe the answer may lie with ourselves, that we will have to take our withdrawal of consent from the unelected usurpers to the next level. Choose to demand as our primal God given right to retain Mr. Trump beyond the proscribed 2 term limit. After all, he is our president, our will personified in the form of Donald Trump.
      I say this with utmost sincerity and good intent. After all this is POTUS’s #1 job, to protect and defend the best interests of we the people. Not the banksters. Not wall st. Not the varrinean and Swiss bank accounts of the swamp and the unelected Nomenklaturer class running the deep state, nor the globalists. But our interests, rights and liberty.

      So to put it bluntly, it may be that time has come to us where we must shake our rifles in the tyrants faces, as one of the founding fathers stated, begin in wild exuberance discharging our muskets in the direction of those usurpers traitors and crooks.
      That’s all there is too it.

      Because if we be dead nuts honest with each other as Men of The Christian West, there was always this possibility of armed redress as our natural right. That it is our duty. Our legacy to defend. Not any others responsibility.

      If you give it a good think, we aren’t the most heavily and properly armed people on God’s green Earth for empty and frivolous reasons.

      And that’s all there is to it. Plain simple truth.
      Can’t speak for others but Id like to believe and have faith, I’m part of an honorable resistance who will never day die or bend a knee to the bastards. If anything, to say Up Yours!
      MAGA Bitchez!

    Definitely, money is at the heart of it. But I’d caution us not to lose sight of the power and importance of ideas/ideology. Right now, it’s because of ideas that PDJT is attempting to rescue the country from the pseudo-elite globalists who’ve been siphoning from those trillions. It’s not like PDJT is trying to make himself, his family, and his friends billions from the Main Street approach. It’s because PDJT wants to MAGA for the people. He loves this country and its people and he knows HOW to MAGA (he believes in his IDEAS).

    Similarly, Wilbur Ross made billions during the past few decades that coincided with the metastasization of this corrupt globalist/Wall Street feeding frenzy, but he rejects that model because of what it has done to the American middle and working classes.

    On the flip side, there are a lot of leftist academics, activists, dirtballs, etc. that violently push open borders, Cultural Marxism, and other ideas and programs that are either intentionally aligned with the globalist corporatist Wall Street model or are “accidentally” helpful to it while pretending to be vehemently opposed to Wall Street. Very few of those useful idiots are making millions, let alone billions. But they push the ideas harder than most of the corrupt globalists who rake in all the cash.

    Meanwhile. a lot of people on the right, including myself, are just now realizing that some/many of the ideas we pushed in the past ALSO helped to promote the corporatist globalist Wall Street model. I.e., there is plenty of blame to go around, but a lot us who inadvertently hurt the cause in the past didn’t make much money while doing so (my bank and investment accounts can attest).

      Really I think we lost skilled tradesmen because of cultural reasons. Most middle class parents do not want their children to be tradesmen because they want them to be doctors and lawyers.

      Vocational programs exist in schools that teach schooled trades, many times the schools dump undesirable (drug and behavioral problems) students into these programs making the stigma even worse.

      Lastly society in general teaches that tradesmen are dumb and it’s a job for uneducated morons.

      However, tradesmen have actually been getting paid a lot of money over the past 20 years and there has been a shortage. The job market for carpenters, plumbers, electricians, ect. have been excellent.

      The problem the service economy has brought is it completely destroyed UNSKILLED jobs. Before it was possible for someone with just a high school diploma to get a decent job where they given on the job training. They’d start at (in 2018 dollars) $15 per hour or so and eventually start making $30 per hour after a couple years. Nowadays these folks have to compete with illegal aliens for jobs that pay minimum wage. These are the jobs that should be the focus. The $50 per hour plumber is doing fine, though if they can make more that’s all the better.

    I really find this article hard to understand. I will reread till I do understand. My view of the world started years ago on the farm. There was a businessman every 160 acres. Innovation was encouraged, admired and copied. The more successful, expanded by purchasing the less successful. Production increased. Lowering prices, and increasing profits.
    Fast forward 50 years.
    Manufacturing has been sent to China, to be done by the cheapest labor.
    Prices for goods made in China, sold in America are lower. People who work in manufacturing in America have far less jobs. Who benefits from Chinese manufacturing the most?. American Government workers. Their wages rise, and their costs lower. Who suffers the most?. Manufacturing workers, and the industries those displaced workers now compete with for jobs.

      RWM: what if these farmers were encouraged to borrow against expected harvests.
      Every now and then, someone would borrow a bit more than was safe, and every now and then a flood or drought would really put a dent in the harvest.

      Then, an easy way out is: sell the farm.

      A conglomerate buys it, and hires people to run the farm. Now, beyond some salary, the excess yield goes to the owners. Who also own ten, or a hundred, other farms.

      As the farm owner/manager buys more farms, and figures out how to run them as franchises, essentially, the value of his business goes up.

      The value of American business, represented by investors buying pieces of the larger business conglomerates in Wall Street, looks better. And, maybe, overall, we are more efficient at producing wealth.

      In the meantime, you have a bunch of former farmers finding something else to do for a living. Trying to be middle class somewhere. Maybe feeling lucky that the debt of the farm was dodged, or maybe figuring out the poison was in the borrowing. Or, the lure of committing to monoculture, or committing to seed monopoly, or whatever else was “new and improved.”

    It has always been about the power of money to control civilization…IMO, the current ‘global’ economy began with the adoption of the Federal Reserve System back in the early 1900’s…The FED was designed by a handful of the world’s most powerful industrialists & financial men of that time (Morgan, Rothschild etc.)…It still serves as the main globalist plan towards obtaining control over free market capitalism via control of the money.

    For an interesting take on the Federal Reserve and our money system, see the book by G. Edward Griffin The Creature from Jekyll Island which describes the who, what and when of the FED.

The banksters. and wall street ppl and all their minions need 40 lbs of 90 weight inserted in them analy.

    Thank you so much for continuing to clear away the haze on the economic front. This is my go-to site every day to be ahead of the game on Trump team’s plan for the economy. Not only that but the simplicity with which you explain it now makes me a resident expert, able to carry on a decent conversation about why the tariffs are a good thing, and how it’s all going to work. All that’s left is how they plan to use the Federal Reserve for the benefit of Main Street until the time that it is logically and naturally abandoned all together.
