How Will The Empire End?

By Chris at www.CapitalistExploits.at It was back in the early 1800’s that the Brits left the sodden, miserable shores of their murky island, grabbed their trumpets, tucked their trousers into the socks, and began conquering the world with the cunning use of flags.   Like all good conquerors, they had a backup plan in the event flags […]

Revisiting Saudi Arabia

By Chris at www.CapitalistExploits.at In May of last year I was attempting to figure out if there was an asymmetric play to be had in the land of sand and black gloop. There were a lot of moving pieces to deal with. I think it’s worth revisiting but first it’s worth reviewing what I thought just […]

Here’s How To “Go Long” Africa

By Chris at www.CapitalistExploits.at About a month ago, the South African government raised the minimum threshold for black ownership of mining companies from 26% to 30%. It’s called “black empowerment” or “affirmative action” and is intended to provide black people with greater access to wealth, education, and to correct the inequality created by the white-led government […]

Solving The Liquidity Problem (Not What You Think!)

By Chris at www.CapitalistExploits.at Earlier this week I discussed Zimbabwe – the country that took and continues to take ineptitude to a whole new level. Specifically, we discussed how the liquidity of assets gets impacted when things go really pear shaped. I think it’s worth understanding this process. There are certain dynamics that are very pertinent to […]

Make It Liquid, Please

By Chris at www.CapitalistExploits.at Most of you know the story of Africa’s great jewel. Zimbabwe, presided over by the charming, charismatic, democratically elected leader Robert Mugabe. So great is the country that under his leadership it has reached dizzying heights. The highest inflation in Africa, the highest unemployment in Africa, and, of course, the highest rates […]

Greece – What Comes to Mind?

By Chris at www.CapitalistExploits.at I warn you… I’ll get hate mail for this. I am a bad person. Perhaps, I spent too much time in European cities because Athens and Greece in particular always failed to impress me. Ok, they have a lot of crumbly buildings. But so do every other country in the region. Ephesus […]

“This Market is Absolutely 100% Going To Crash”

By Chris at www.CapitalistExploits.at Him: “This market is absolutely 100% gonna crash.” Me: “You sound so certain?” Him: “Just look at the valuations.” Me: “Pricey valuations don’t always culminate in a market crash. There are other factors to consider.” Him: “Trump trade is over, and I’m now 50% hedged on US exposure and net long EMs. Plus, the […]

What Happens When Things Can’t Get Any Worse?

By Chris at www.CapitalistExploits.at Time is short so let me present to you one chart… to get you thinking in the right direction. EUR/GBP Ok, I lied. Two charts… GBP/USD Pound pounded. Whyfore? Not one thing but many…. Brexit European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker recently threatened the following: “The bill for the UK will be, to put it somewhat crudely, […]

The Economics Of Warfare Have Changed

By Chris at www.CapitalistExploits.at Economists measure economic variables. That’s a problem. They are but one piece of an incredibly complex puzzle: Behavioural psychology isn’t considered. Different realm… not their business. Warfare and the economics of it are measured poorly, if at all. Consider for a moment the impact of technology on every aspect of life. Now, […]

While My Qatar Gently Weeps

By Chris at www.CapitalistExploits.at Menopause, I’m told, is horrible. Men don’t know too much about it, and thankfully I’ve not been exposed to it… yet. One minute you’re hand in hand on the beach with your sweet adoring wife and the next she’s a sobbing wreck who wants to stab you in the thigh with a pair of […]
