SharperDingaan Posted June 2, 2020 Share Posted June 2, 2020 To outsiders, the recent videos and reactions to the race related violence in the US, are very concerning. Covid-19 continues to hobble the economy, it is 5-months until the US election, the US is experiencing its worst race relations since 1968, Trump is trailing badly in the polls, there are now 8 pm curfews in major US cities, and musings of invoking the Insurrection Act. The Insurrection Act is martial law, it seldom ends well for anyone, and it is right out of the Dictators Handbook. Yet there has been silence on the potential investment effect of all this on the COBF board? https://www.cbc.ca/news/world/trump-protests-governors-call-1.5593413 https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/advantage-biden-risks-trump-disapproval-grows-poll/story?id=70962322 https://www.amazon.ca/Dictators-Handbook-Behavior-Almost-Politics-ebook/dp/B005GPSLHI To those who live in these cities under curfew, or in the US - does the local/national economy get a lot worse before the elections? The civil liberty expectations (if any), should Trump not exit 'peacefully' if the Republicans lose? 'Cause at the moment the smart bet is to assume implosion - and even the EU looks like the better investment option. Asymmetric short bets on worsening US systemic failures, negative interest rates, and collapsing civil order. SD Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
