Hartnett Knows This is Not The Boom Biden Wants

Spending on a Supply Chain to Nowhere

Good Afternoon:

Michael Hartnett gives further evidence a new bubble is being blown

President Biden’s fiscal spending intends to re-domesticate supply chains and spur domestic manufacturing. If those policies are working, why are only 7 stocks—all tech and not manufacturing—leading this rally, Hartnett asks.

We add that the wrong companies are being rewarded by investors. This all suggests a new mal-investment in stocks again. This in turn implies the current fiscal push (like QE before it), again is only helping boost assets owned by the 1% higher.

This can all end up being a supply-chain-to-nowhere, like those bridges-to-nowhere previous spenders used to build. And the market will implode like 1999 DOT COM did from cost of capital being too high sustain the bubblenomics

Maybe it will just take time to trickle down..
