Apple (AAPL) will obviously lead earnings report headlines Tuesday after the close because of its huge market capitalization and over-weighting in the major averages. The company is expected to report earnings of $1.80 a share compared with $1.28 a year earlier.

Last week, Europe hurriedly offered Greece a new bailout deal … the Greek parliament rushed to pass new Draconian reform laws … the German parliament did the same … and the ECB promptly dished out more money to keep the country’s banks afloat.

I’m not going to lie. I have vacation on the brain. My wife and I can’t wait to step on board our cruise ship tomorrow with the kids, and enjoy some long-anticipated R&R. My recent “appetizer” trip with the girls to their Grammy’s and Grampy’s house in North Carolina was a blast, too. Swimming, hiking and whitewater rafting? How can…

It’s amazing to me how many pundits out there still think that inflation is coming back. That money printing can solve the world’s massive debt problems. Why can’t they see reality? Why can’t they see the facts? Combined, the world’s major central banks have printed some $10 trillion of new money since 2008. Yet … Fact #1: There’s no inflation…
