“Abandoning what doesn’t work is what makes what works work.” -P.J. O’Rourke

“The U.S. 10-year bond yield rose to a seven-year high of 3.24% – nearly 2% above its bottom in July 2016.

This 2% increase, imposed on $68 trillion of debt, is equal to an extra $1.3 trillion in interest charges….

To look at it another way, the typical working person who works an average of 33 hours per week earns $26 an hour. His percentage of the total debt is about $500,000.

At today’s interest rate, he will have to work 558 hours – or three and a half weeks (not including taxes) – just to keep up with the interest payments. Clearly, this is impossible…” -Bill Bonner

“Few things are impossible to diligence and skill. Great works are performed not by strength but perseverance.” -Samuel Johnson
