Larry is in Washington D.C. for the big 3 day blitz, so I’ll be on just one or two segments before going home — from 5:00pm to 5:20pm or so, on CNBC.

In addition to your humble scribe, Gary Shilling will be on, as will Michelle Girard.

A few links will cover what our discussions will include:

-Fed’s job not to bail out risk takers-Fisher (Reuters)   
-Fed’s Poole and Lockhart Decline to Endorse Interest-Rate Cut (Bloomberg) 
-Surprisingly Strong Back-to-School Sales (The Big Picture)
-Gold Tops $700 as Dollar Slumps Against Euro (Bloomberg) 
-U.S. hiring slowest in four years, ADP says (MarketWatch)   
-Record Number of Homes Entered Foreclosure in Second Quarter (WSJ)   

Incidentally, the first and the items are somewhat related . . .

Last time out, I was on Kudlow & Company with Seth Tobias of Circle T Partners. His sudden and untimely death (he was just 44) was a big shock. Our deepest sympathies go out to his family.

    Wel-l-l-l….. Looks like my analysis of Dr. Benber N. Anke’s speech has held.

    I drive nails, 5 licks at a time… make the hammer and steel and heart pine sing… a higher pitching ringing melody… and finish it with a flush drive.

    It’s a man’s world.

    Old business:

    Goodnight and thank you for the many years of pure joy. You can “get down” now:

    “The Big Story?!?”

    LOL. Larry is just nervous because over the last two weeks I’ve watched him and he’s nervous.

    Gold Tops $700 as Dollar Slumps Against Euro (Bloomberg)

    Looks like a warning to the Fed on what the outcome will be if they cut rates. If the warning sent gold to 700, it is mind-boggling what the real thing will do.

    Bernanke put for stocks = Bernanke call for gold (and the euro and oil and grains and…)

    Hi- I saw you on Kudlow great job!

    Nice blog!

    Kuddlow looks at the small picture, you do look at the Big picture.

    Remember; the Ferengi (Star Trek) Rules of Acquisition. (Never trust a Bull)

    Keep up the good works, and instinct plus opportunity equals profit!

    “Neither a borrower nor a lender be;
    For loan oft loses both itself and friend,
    And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry.
    This above all: to thine own self be true,
    And it must follow, as the night the day,
    Thou canst not then be false to any man.” William Shakespeare

    I would be remiss not to mention that we cracked $9 TRILLION Dollars per the Treasury, and nobody threw a party. What’s the problem folks, it’s just liquidity, right?

    The good news I can report is that the 3 Month LIBOR didn’t not go up today. Boo-Yaa!

    David,

    You’re probably a good guy and all, but have you actually read Hamlet?

    If so, I hope you know that the speaker of your “Neither a borrower nor a lender be” line was Polonius, who is a windbag and a fool. He’s Shakespeare’s Larry Kudlow.

    Oh, and by the way, Hamlet skewers him like the cringing, scheming rat he is.

    Sorry for the rant, but quoting “Neither a borrower . . . “ with a straight face is like snapping off a “Mission Accomplished!” without the irony.

    Bingo, and they have the problem of food inflation that is high and about to go much higher. The dollar sits at 80.45 or so, and did I mention oil at $77?

    I would note however that at this point they may have little choice. What’s left to inflate? I have read that Govt. may step in with infrastructure as a possible next bubble [Japan Style], but how exactly would they do this if FCB’s aren’t buying our paper because it’s crap, and they have enough?

    Japan was able to run massive deficits, but they ran a positive trade balance that allowed them to do this.

    Two rather remarkable observations when presented in juxtaposition:

    ps, regarding Hulbert, I don’t mean his observation, but rather the opinions of the survey respondents he’s reporting.

    MtHood-
    “Neither a borrower nor a lender be” was the common wisdom of the day.

    If Polonius had said “Never pisseth into the wind” would you dismiss the advice?

  11. MTHood says:

    “If Polonius had said “Never pisseth into the wind” would you dismiss the advice?”

    You’re missing the point.

    Let’s try this from The Graduate:

    Mr. McGuire: I want to say one word to you. Just one word.

    Benjamin: Yes, sir. …

    Mr. McGuire: Plastics.

    Benjamin: Just how do you mean that, sir?

    Now one could say, “Well, Mr. McGuire was right. Plastic production rose from 161 million metric tons in . . . .”, but that would be missing the humor, the irony, and the point of the scene, would it not?

    Polonius was passing on the common wisdom of the day? Is that what Shakespeare was after — dispensing advice? Seriously, do you think Shakespeare was intending Polonius’ words as good, solid advice for the youth of England?
