Earnings season has been a huge success, inflation is still running hot but is well off of its highs, this week we get consumer spending data, a look at growth themes, and whether investors should worry about corporate tax increases.
This week's data is all about inflation, last week's employment figures were quite strong, the debt ceiling is again in the news, and the costs of printing money (it may be more than just inflation).
Manufacturing data posts this week, the Fed is still talking about talking about tapering, corporate earnings are strong, and I lay out how I see markets over the next six months.
It is Fed Week! Earnings continue to come in, and quite a lot of data posts this week. I look at SPACs and how they fit in a portfolio, and our chart is a look at earnings surprises.
More earnings this week, growth concerns are gripping markets as the delta variant gains momentum, a quick look at market behavior, and what is a bubble, exactly?
Earnings season starts this week, lots of data drops, I consider the implications of stagflation, and a quick look at the expected winners and losers of earnings season.

We get beginning-of-the-month data this week, markets liked the $1.2 trillion bipartisan deal, I mull the shift in deficit spending dynamics, and how this down-up cycle compares with others.
The Fed is now talking about talking about tapering, this is a light data week, and I spend some time looking at interest rate moves and their relationship to equity prices.
Inflation ran hotter than expected last month, the FOMC meeting is this week, and some charts showing how the recovery is going.
