    • Five Hundred Million Dollar Negative Yield Bond Issued
      No, central banks aren’t screwing the economy up with their purchases: Veolia (Paris:VIE) has issued a 500 million 3-year EUR bond (maturity November 2020) with a negative yield of -0.026 %, which is a first for a BBB issuer.

    Funny, I’ve been getting NOSTALGIC for …Eisenhower? I was a kid while he was President…In 6th grade when he left office. Maybe I’m just wanting to be a kid again, as things go down the tubes in this country.
    While I wouldn’t agree with everything he did now, I did a bit of research, and Ike was not adverse to progress. Aside from his comments about the military-industrial complex he made so many statements that seem very wise today. For one thing, he supported the early space program and also pushed for more investment in science and higher education….No wonder the GOP has largely ignored him for many, many years as the become a party of toads.

    I don’t write on my blog very often these days due to personal things, but to feel COMPELLED to write about Eisenhower must indicate how deeply unsettled I’m feeling now about the state of this country, to the point that I have to go back to Ike and my childhood! BUT, his many incredible observations still hold a lot of water today….

    So, if you will permit me, I am putting up the link to my post on Eisenhower because the quotes I have up there will take you back to the days when the GOP was NOT NUTS…they are today, but Ike was most definitely NOT NUTS…
