Nomad-Dollars-Sense-Part1-Bob Davis Podcast 1101

Nomad Dollars And Sense

To begin with I am going to do a series of podcasts discussing dollars and sense for the nomad. Nomad-Dollars-Sense-Part1-Bob Davis Podcast 1101 is the first in that series.

Preconceptions

Most importantly Part1 deals exclusively with our preconceptions about what exactly “The Economy” actually is.

Updates Podcast 1069

And this podcast series updates earlier comprehensive podcasts about the economy and the nomad.

In fact this is necessary because I want to deal with specific metrics in the second podcast in this series.

Business Coverage

Most importantly the reality of business news coverage these days is mostly political.

Or it is alarmist.

No Overlay

That is to say if you overlay a political or religious template on economic information you lose the ability to analyze what is going on.

Force Of Nature

Certainly the overall world economy is a force of nature.

In other words a force similar to waves on the ocean.

Therefore making predictions about outcomes is extraordinarily difficult.

Misinformation

And our modern information channels are filled with misinformation.

Charlatans

In addition there are many charlatans spreading misinformation for their own purposes.

Context

I have also learned it takes a long time to get comfortable with terms and context when it comes to financial markets and economic discussions.

My Story

Firstly I’ll tell you a little about my story as a nomad and how I became intensely interested in this subject.

Secondly I’ll tell you why I think the economy in general is at an inflection point.

And what that all means.

Podcast Series

Nomad-Dollars-Sense-Part1-Bob Davis Podcast 1101 sets up the next podcast which will deal with the key data in the economy I have learned to look at.

Finally it comes down to whether you are Pollyanna or a Cassandra.

Moreover why so many main street business owners are in fact Pollyanna.

And why they’re missing the latest economic data which could signal what is just head.

To sum up the nomad wonders when fuel prices will collapse.

And when food prices will come down.

Even more the one hundred and eighty million Americans who aren’t millionaires and billionaires wonder when they will get a break.

The answers to those questions begin with a baseline for a dollars and sense evaluation of conditions as they are.

Winds-Of-Change-Bob Davis Podcast 1043

Winds Of Change

Firstly Winds Of Change are blowing. And suddenly media has exploded with prophecy and prediction. I won’t do that. Learn why in Winds-Of-Change-Bob Davis Podcast 1043.

Cycles

Secondly many cycles are ending all at once.

Tough Three Years

Certainly we have run the gamut in the last three years.

But more is to come.

Storm Of Change

Most importantly rather than tell subscribers and listeners what to think and what to do in Winds-Of-Change-Bob Davis Podcast 1043 I’ll talk about the fact that we’re in the middle of a storm of change.

No Predictions

Above all I won’t make predictions.

I won’t tell you what I think this leader should do.

Even more whether I think another leader is off his or her rocker.

Listen Dream Think

However if you’re back in the world this podcast is an opportunity to listen, dream and think.

Fear and Uncertainty Back Home

Further it’s an opportunity to avoid the swirl of fear and uncertainty that characterizes the world of bricks and sticks.

Nomads and Crisis

Therefore let’s spend some time talking about how we nomads deal with these kinds of crisis.

Time Lines

For example our time lines are different.

Thinking It Through

That is to say we have more time to process these things.

To think it through.

Called To Be Here

In the same vein I have talked to many nomads who feel they were called to be out here at this time.

Certainly they don’t always know why.

Just that they are here.

Uncertainty

Whether it is the Ukraine, The Pandemic, Inflation or economic uncertainty it impacts nomads differently.

Wonder and Worry

In short when I look up into the stars late at night by the fire I too wonder and worry about the future.

No Homework

On the other hand with so many cycles bisecting the present time I am not sure what can be ‘done’ about it.

And I refrain from doing homework for people.

No Telling You What To Think

Or telling them what to think.

Winds Of Change Blowing Hard

In conclusion the winds of change have been blowing pretty hard for the last three years or more.

Impacts

In addition even nomads may see impacts in terms of rigs and fuel.

Let’s Start Building The Future

Finally future developments depend on a number of technology breakthroughs underway as we speak.

To sum up, let’s get on with it.

Media-Distorts-Poll-Results-Again-Bob Davis Podcast 932

Media Back To Its Old Tricks

Firstly the media is back to its old tricks. They are showing a shocking level of ignorance when it comes to political polls. Learn in Media-Distorts-Poll-Results-Again-Bob Davis Podcast 932.

Predicting The Future. Again.

Secondly we should be suspicious of a media with a penchant for predicting the future.

No Partisan Coverage of Election 2020 Here

More importantly I have avoided partisan criticism of the president. In addition I have refused to engage in the same kind of misinformation when it comes to potential presidential candidates. Now you understand why.

No Partisan Issue Advocacy Here Either

Moreover I refuse to advocate for partisan issues or tell listeners and subscribers what to think.

Political Polling Coverage

Therefore I am starting my political coverage of presidential polling for 2020.

State By State Reports

To clarify from time to time I will do some podcasts discussing recent polling on a state by state basis.

Ignorant Story Lines

Truth is, the story lines being created now may or may not be the eventual result. I’ll explain why in Media-Distorts-Poll-Results-Again-Bob Davis Podcast 932.

All About The Electoral Vote

Even more we choose our presidents through the electoral college. We do not vote directly for the office of president in the United States.This reality forces presidential campaigns to develop electoral strategies.

Divided? Really?

Above all we keep hearing how the United States has become a ‘divided’ country. It’s the Blue States against the Red States.

County By County Vote Totals

But county by county vote totals show the votes are often ‘blue’ or ‘red’ by pluralities, not majorities.

National Presidential Polls Are Useless

Finally citing national popularity polls, presidential job approval polls, or even national political preference is little more than a waste of time.

Another Close Contest, So Far…

In conclusion, the 2020 presidential race at this time looks like another close contest. Unless that reality changes it’s going to come down to some key states.

Still Not A Lot Of Polling Data For Battleground States

Meanwhile polling data is not available for all the so called battleground states.

Fantasy Reporting

In short don’t believe everything you hear.

(Editor’s Note: I refer to both candidates running as ‘presidents’. Obviously I meant President Trump and former Vice President Biden. In addition at the time of recording of this podcast¬† results of the Iowa US Senate Primary had not been released. Due to this, no polls were available on the race. The primary was held on June 2nd, 2020. I said no democrat had yet been selected in the Iowa US Senate Race, which includes Senator Joni Ernst as the republican incumbent. This was true at the time. Now Ernst has a democratic opponent. For the results go here.)
