US Interest Rates and the Toughest Man Who Ever Lived

Dear Paraders,
I begin this week sitting at our dining room table here in Cafayate, Argentina. Out the window, the vista is brimming with sunshine, vineyards, lovely houses, and lovelier mountains across the valley.
My wife is off working out at the Athletic Club & Spa. I would be too, were I not laid up by my recent hernia operation.
Later today, I’ll be playing a demonstration game of the ancient Chinese game of Go with a fellow resident and master of the game from California. Then we’ll dine at Bad Brothers Wine Experience with freshly returned owners from South Africa and my friend, former partner, and now closest neighbor Doug Casey.
