Pershing Square recently installed two hotlines: 1. for investor suicide prevention and 2. for death threats. Phones are ringin’ off the hook.
Also, this morning Janet Yellen had a nervous breakdown during her testimony to Congress. She told Congress that, “We have no clue what is going on.” Then she asked Congressional leaders to join her in prayer, “God, Help us!”
Her testimony: Negative Rates a failed strategy so do it
