25 Interesting NIRP news from Euroland. The ECB just lowered their main interest rate from -0.3% to -0.4%. Some big German outfit, one of the biggest reinsurers in the world, has reacted. Remember the problem of firms with huge amounts of money trying to convert to cash. It's just physically impossible to do.

So what are they doing? They're buying gold with some and parking the rest in foreign currencies *that do not have a negative interest rate*. I wonder if the economic central planning wizards of smart have fully thought through the consequences of causing a flight from their own currencies.

Now, if the Fed goes NIRP, then dollars won't be an option for these guys either and they'll move to something else.

Oh, what is a reinsurer you ask? Basically, it's insurance for insurance companies. There is what is known as tail risk, the low probability of having a bunch of claims occur at once in some event. They purchase insurance themselves for such a tail risk.

Which leads to "tail of the tail" risk. What happens if everybody has a tail event? That is an even more vanishingly small probability. But not zero. Govts would step if it wasn't too big. If too big even for govts, well, we're talking some serious biblical shit here.

Anyway, the Kraut reinsurer realizes that NIRP has very negative consequence for it tail risk exposure.

Again, I wonder just how much the Wizards of Smart have thought this shit through.

Emergency operation. They said I was very close to dying. (I'd been fighting the infection it for weeks not realizing I was getting worse but with no money to even see a GP, I had to hope for my body to provide the cure didn't know the stone was stuck though.

And no. No bright lights or relatives calling me home or anything. The tsunami cheered me up though as I realized there were people in the world worse off than me.

We're outside it's envelope of accuracy. They don't want to admit it, but the system ain't behaving the way theory says. NIRP is what theory says to do, so they'll do it.

Back in my carefree college days, some of us went on a little Caribbean cruise. Jim Beam was smuggled onboard in pretty good quantities. It's a wonder I'm still alive.

175 IIRC, it's called taste aversion, although it involves smell. It's a low-level feedback thing that our ancestors developed to avoid poisoning. You eat that thing and get violently ill, that taste and smell will make repulse you.

The problem with it is when the food is not the actual cause of the violent sickness. It still kicks in. It's a problem for people getting treatments that cause nausea. They can develop the aversion to normal foods they were eating.

I recall, after a session of what we in my family call "therapy," that involved a handle of Jameson brought to bear on a broken heart, waking in an ER, with some smart-ass doctor or something saying to me, "Welcome back."

Since then, no more Irish whiskey - it's too smooth, too seductive - it's the woman at the end of the bar who will not only wreck your life, but will leave you longing for the sweet release of death when she leaves you.

208 Here's the theory. You see there's this thing called Aggregate Demand (AD). That is the total demand for shit, goods and services in an economy. During recessions, aggregate demand goes down. People stop buying shit.

Now, why would people do that? Well common sense could help you there. Things like fear, untenable debt and all that. But somehow the Wizards of Smart have decided that AD is some magical thing. Why if aggregate demand stayed up, then people wouldn't get scared and wouldn't worry about debt. What's debt anyway? It's someone else's asset. We all owe it to ourselves, ultimately. When you include the whole world as the system, that is true.

So somehow AD just magically goes down and we have a recession. So, get out of the recession by stimulating AD. Keynesian prescription: govt stimulus. Monetarist prescription: Central bank lowers rates, goes QE and helicopter money if necessary.

This latter encounters the "zero bound" on interest rates. If AD is so in the shitter and you get a deflationary compounding vicious cycle, zero is not enough. Liquidity Trap and all that shit.

So you go negative (and have to try to get rid of physical cash). By charging people to hold money, you make them spend it, and thus restore AD.

Savers bad, spenders good, see. When AD has dropped, those nasty savers are fucking us up. So NIRP = fuck those savers in the ass and make them spend.

Now, some economic poohbah reading that would say I'm grossly oversimplifying and mocking their sound theory, but that's the basics of it.

228 I think it's actually in the law that Uncle Sugar would have to bail out the reinsurers in the event of a tail of the tail event.

In a sound system, think of it as rules of the public roads, if you're going to be an insurance company, you've got to be sound. That is, you've got to run a mathematical analysis of your risk, and be able to handle what is likely to come. Now your tail risk is handled by reinsurance. Which can basically be just a consortium of all the insurance companies together.

This means you can't run an insurance company like a casino (or drive like NASCAR on the public roads -- if you want a race, get your ass to a private race track).

During the orgy of the 90s, guess what all the Wall Street banksters and their buddies did? Lobby Congress and Billy Boy to allow them to run it more like casinos.

The old Glass-Steagal also had a provision that put a wall between insurance and the investment banking casino that got relaxed.

You know those Credit Default Swaps and all that shit? It was basically offering insurance without properly covering your risk.

The real problem is that government shit sandwiches count in GDP just like Swedish massages by Inga and fine champagne. If you spend $100 on each, they're counted exactly the same in GDP. Which contribute more to people's sense of well-being?

Barack Obama has spent more money than anyone, ever, in the history of the world -- pissed it away like a firehose, on more government shit-sandwiches than can be reckoned in a month of Sundays -- in order to bring the GDP up to the level it was at before it tanked. We don't have more champagne, we don't have more Inga -- we have Solyndra and Obamacare and a rogue EPA and IRS, we have Title 9 fascism in education and DoJ studies to find racism in police departments.

The GDP of what we might have some slight desire for has taken it in the ass, while the GDP of shit we'd rather avoid has exploded -- and all the Wise Men of Economics say we must spend more.

The Koreans are *awesome*. When I worked in Totsuka, I stopped in at a British-style pub run by a Korean on the way home from work most days. He took to ordering in Korean delicacies for us, which are spicy. Really spicy.

The Japanese are drinking lightweights. Maybe that's a cultural thing. They all get shit- and red-faced really fast, and that's the end of that.

Never went drinking with Chinese. Have drunk Chinese beer. No complaints.

250 You know, there was some Aussie "rogue economist" some professor Down Under, who demolished this theory that "debt doesn't matter". He correctly analyzed the problem, but his solution was more heroin really. You just can't get people to accept that There Must Be Pain to restore balance to the system.

I can't remember his name, but he did something I thought was impressive. He came up with a cycle model. Now, fitting the past to a curve is well, you can always do that. Doesn't tell the system will behave the same in the future.

But he got the behavior. You try to prevent recessions, the natural oscillations of the system. You do this with Central Bank and Keynesians meddling. You damp the swings, and finally get a period of "sustained growth". The sky's the limit. Then it crashes. Hard. Biblical proportions.

That was what we went through in the late 80s and the 90s. The "Great Moderation" they called it, the reduction in the volatility of the "business cycle". Then came 2008.

So he got a model that produced that behavior. Moderation period followed by Great Crash.

It impressed me.

But the dude had no solution other than "give free shit to the people".

251 "disassociative reaction"... this is supposedly a leftover from our caveman days.

When you're a hunter/gatherer/scavenger, you eat anything that might have calories. If you eat something that makes you sick, you better have a good way to make sure you never eat anything like that again. There are still a few neurons way back there in the brain stem that do this for us.

Of course, the food doesn't have to cause the sickness. Feed a colicky baby strained peas at the wrong time, and the kid won't touch peas for three decades, if ever.

252 Interesting NIRP news from Euroland. The ECB just
lowered their main interest rate from -0.3% to -0.4%. Some big German
outfit, one of the biggest reinsurers in the world, has reacted.
Remember the problem of firms with huge amounts of money trying to
convert to cash. It's just physically impossible to do.

So what
are they doing? They're buying gold with some and parking the rest in
foreign currencies *that do not have a negative interest rate*. I wonder
if the economic central planning wizards of smart have fully thought
through the consequences of causing a flight from their own currencies.

Now, if the Fed goes NIRP, then dollars won't be an option for these guys either and they'll move to something else.


Oh, what is a reinsurer you ask? Basically, it's insurance for
insurance companies. There is what is known as tail risk, the low
probability of having a bunch of claims occur at once in some event.
They purchase insurance themselves for such a tail risk.

Which
leads to "tail of the tail" risk. What happens if everybody has a tail
event? That is an even more vanishingly small probability. But not zero.
Govts would step if it wasn't too big. If too big even for govts, well,
we're talking some serious biblical shit here.

Anyway, the Kraut reinsurer realizes that NIRP has very negative consequence for it tail risk exposure.

Again, I wonder just how much the Wizards of Smart have thought this shit through.

There is no thought involved (and certainly no respect for the property rights of currency holders to the value of their money).




There is only mad panic and the idea that there must be some lever available to them to MAKE PEOPLE DO WHAT THEY WANT THEM TO DO... even if what they want them to do is stupid and nonsensical.




As Smith pointed out though, in his talk of Man of System" people have their own agency and are not pawns on a chess board to be moved at the whim of planners and with no ability to deviate from those plans. Which is why the main stimulus to the economy in Japan from negative interest rates was to stimulate the sale of home safes where cash can be kept at an interest rate of 0%.

The insanity of "microaggressions", which are perceived slights that exist in the subject viewpoint of self-identifying victims, is no longer reserved for the madness that is academia. Unsurprisingly, the same administration that declared that failure to affirm homosexuality as being something wonderful, even if one is tolerance and accepting of homosexuality, is tantamount to oppression, is now embracing the war on "microaggressions."

264 publius, I like your financial affairs comments - good to get these huge matters into the mix of discussion.


On the credit default swaps (among other things), to me the most important thing to keep reminding/correcting people is that the main problem (mortgages and related derivatives) could never have become the disaster they became without public (govt.) involvement. At both inception, and in blowing up the balloon with "investors" (esp. foreign banks)


Glass-Steagal repeal didn't immediately, or even soon, lead to this disaster, for a reason. The disaster was in no way an inevitable consequence of repeal. It was the specific result of reckless, optional actions by Fannie and the Fed, over a period of years.


And the reaction to the disaster was no less reckless and incompetent than the actions that led to it.

266 I remember seeing video taken from a helicopter of the 2011 Japanese tsunami traveling across the countryside. The water was black as chocolate syrup and it just kept going and going, mile after mile, obliterating towns and farms and greenhouses, engulfing roads full of vehicles, even sweeping over raised overpasses and disappearing the bridges and vehicles that were thirty feet or so above the plain. It was one of the most depressing things I've ever seen.

276 I think there's a dynamic something like this. Remember the hell of the Depression. The generation that went through that was shaped by it. My parents were kids then basically, and my grandparents (all long dead) were the young(ish) adults at the time. It impressed the hell out of them: stay out of debt, don't recklessly spend. Save for a rainy day.

The memory of that fades. A generation takes the reins that has never experienced a crash of that magnitude. They tend to get more reckless, knowing nothing but gambles that pay off basically.

Remember the stereotype of the "banksters" back in the day? Think Mr. Drysdale from the Beverly Hillbillies. Mr. Mooney from the Lucy Shows.

These guys were tightwads extraordinaire. Absolutely constitutionally opposed to spending money. They'd die if they had to spend money. They wanted it all it vault where they could just wallow in it.

They weren't high rollers wanting the high life and hookers and blow. Now the stereotype of a banker is a high roller chasing return, recklessly with other people's money.

283 Hmm. Name origin? Cato's one I've been using for a long time. I've always liked Latin names, and when the Tea Party kicked off, I used a whole bunch of 'em as an homage to the people who wrote the Federalist Papers. Cato is the one I kept, mostly because I thought I'd end up like Cato the Younger for fighting against the DC megalomaniacs, particularly after Breitbart's sudden and conveniently timed demise. Against all expectations, I'm still alive, and thanking God for it as often as I remember to do so.

The "Rebel Without a Party" bit is an homage to some of my favorite 'rons that frequent the morning hours, and was something I tagged on as my regular epithet after a long morning rant a year or two ago when a whole bunch of us (phoenixgirl, born a rebel - Vic we have no party, ManWithNoParty, etc.) came to the inescapable conclusion that "our representatives" were playing for the other team for real.

Well, you can make a smooth, true, flat surface on a piece of metal, which is useful. And by turning the work in the vise, or using an indexing head, you could machine a perfect cube, or a hexagon. Could cut gear teeth on a blank, or make a keyway in a bore.


Cutting hollows or recesses in a workpiece might be difficult, because the moving cutter would wind up jamming chips against the wall at the end of the stroke. But if one were to mount a small router on the end of the ram, in place of the tool holder, one could, in theory, add the last 20% of goodness to an unfinished part. So you could make nifty aluminum ash trays.

The reciprocating nature of this machine is good for making slots. Because you're moving linearly, you can make undercut slots or slots inside things ("keyways") -- which is a yuge pain-in-the-ass using a mill (which looks like a reinforced drill-press and uses rotational motion to shave the edges (interior or exterior) of things).

The ram doesn't have to be powered. There is a large knurled knob mounted in tandem with the belt pulley, so that you could stroke the ram very slowly indeed, just like hand-feeding the carriage on a lathe.


So the table feed gives you your X-axis, the ram feed the Y-axis, and the downfeed the Z-axis.


There apparently was a kit to mount a Dumore grinder to the Ammco shaper. The Dumore was like a Dremel, with a much larger motor. My late father had one.

Quite freaky-deaky indeed. Outside of Crane's private life, it is astounding that Americans could be liberating Nazi death camps in 1945 and making comedy television series about Nazis in 1965 -- just 20 years later. Will we have a comedy series about Al-Qaeda in five years?

I look forward to playing with this one. It's going to need a table. I have built machine tables before by using the shell of an old top-loader washer. Put a thick wooden top on it, a bottom plate with casters, and a bottom and middle shelf. They are very sturdy, and cost next to nothing to make. Because of the reciprocating action of the shaper, I don't think having the table sitting on casters is a good idea. It would start sashaying around the shop.

Only about 250, apparently. At home, I have a brake lathe on one such table, and a Sioux valve grinder on another. The brake lathe is probably over 400 pounds, and the washing machine-based table holds it no problem at all. And it rolls easy on 4" iron-wheel casters.


Think of the shell of the washer as a giant box beam. Very strong in compression, which is the gravity load of the machine. Commercial machine tables are made quite similarly. Painted up to match the machine, these home made tables even look like factory issue.

Clint -- (1) Geological Science) a section of a limestone pavement separated from adjacent sections by solution fissures. (2) (Physical Geography) any small surface exposure of hard or flinty rock, as on a hillside or in a stream bed.

388 Incidentally, grikes are just "joints" which have been widened by solution. If solution had been the only mechanism at work, the cracks would meander. Joints are usually straight. And straight jointing of this nature is so characteristic of limestone that its symbol on a geological map or section is a "brick wall" pattern, colored blue.
