Investor CAFÉ Newsletters

Skousen Investor Cafe: Hayek Vs. Keynes: Who’s on Top?

05/31/2012

My wife and I are here in London, England, after visiting Warsaw, Poland, a few days ago. I’m here to give a lecture on “Hayek vs. Keynes: Who’s on Top?” and to discuss how to apply “Austrian” economics to the financial world. You’ll note the name of this e-letter, the Skousen Investor CAFE. CAFE stands […]

Skousen Investor Cafe: Investors Should Beware of Tepid U.S. Money Supply Growth

05/24/2012

Investors would be wise to take notice that the U.S. money supply (M2) is growing only at a tepid 3% rate, compared to double-digit percentage rates last year. That situation suggests an economic slowdown here in the United States — good news for the Republicans, but not for investors or for the stock market. In […]

Skousen Investor Cafe: I Lead All Investment Writers in This Category

05/17/2012

As an investment newsletter editor, I probably lead all other writers in this one category: traveling and speaking. My subscribers constantly are amazed at how often I am away from home attending a conference or visiting a new country. I probably speak at two dozen economic and financial seminars each year. I’m almost constantly on […]

Skousen Investor Cafe: Conditions in the United States and Europe are Bad News for Investors

05/10/2012

The latest negative market conditions for investors include slowing gross domestic product (GDP) growth and poor employment reports in the United States, as well as bad news in Europe. GDP growth in the United States edged down to just an annual rate of 2.2% during the first quarter of 2012, compared to 3% at the […]

Skousen Investor Cafe: We Are Headed off of a Fiscal Cliff — Milken Conference Report

05/03/2012

I spent this week in Beverly Hills attending the famous Milken Institute Global Conference, hosted by Michael Milken, and the watch word I heard repeatedly about the U.S. economy was “fiscal cliff.” The huge debt load the United States is facing on top of the trillions in unfunded liabilities is cause for alarm. A crisis […]

Skousen Investor CAFE: The Road to Morocco Leads to Investing Ideas for the Emerging Markets

04/26/2012

I just returned from a trip to Morocco for the first time where I met fellow economists and I tried to procure investing ideas to share with you about emerging markets. The visit marked the 72nd country that I have set foot upon in my well-traveled career. As you may recall from my e-letter last […]

Skousen Investor CAFE: World Economic Issues Could Imperil Savings of U.S. Investors

04/19/2012

The world seems to be closely intertwined these days. The economies around the globe meld together and can affect U.S. investors dramatically. The interconnectedness is one reason why I travel internationally to scout out new investment opportunities. I like to talk to people in other countries and to see first hand how economies around the […]

Skousen Investor CAFE: George W. Bush, The Comeback Kid

04/12/2012

Yesterday, I went to the New York Historical Society in downtown New York, where Amity Shlaes organized the “The 4% Growth Project” via the George W. Bush Center. It was quite the star-studded show. I met President Bush again, plus Karl Rove; Steve Forbes and Rich Karlgaard from Forbes magazine; Rupert Murdoch (!), John Stossel […]

Skousen Investor CAFE: Fed is Right Not to Launch Quantitative Easing Part III

04/05/2012

The markets reacted the wrong way yesterday by pulling back when the minutes from the last Federal Reserve meeting were released this week. The minutes indicated that the Fed was not planning on launching a third round of quantitative easing (QE3). In my view, the Fed has overindulged with quantitative easing in the past and […]

Skousen Investor CAFE: Easy-Money Policies and Massive Federal Deficits Complicate Investing

03/29/2012

After dipping last week, stocks are back up after Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke announced that the Fed would continue its easy-money policies this year. I’ve already noted how the money supply (M2) is growing rapidly, all apparently in an effort to re-elect President Obama and to help Bernanke keep his job. As a result, the […]
