Why This CEO Wants to Cancel Earnings Season Forever

This didn't exactly make the news, but in July, financial chieftains, including Berkshire Hathaway's Warren Buffett, BlackRock's Larry Fink, and JPMorgan Chase's Jamie Dimon, got together to talk corporate governance practices.

A noncontroversial topic, right?

Well… no. According to the Financial Times, Fidelity Investments, the $2.2 trillion asset manager, up and walked out of a Dimon-led effort to codify some best practices for American boardrooms.

So it seems some of finance's heaviest hitters are divided on the subject of good governance.

Stocks Are Sky-High – Here's How to Profit from the Big Fall

The Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, which ought to know a thing or two about behavioral disorders, once defined insanity as "doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result."

By that definition, the world's central bankers – "hopium" pushers to the global markets – are all barking mad.

They've continuously inflated assets to stratospheric heights in a doomed quest for growth and inflation that never, ever comes.

And what's really insane is that they have absolutely no idea how to stop what they're doing… without sending those "hopium"-addicted markets into a lethal tailspin.

They'll get the tailspin anyway. Or should I say, we will – central bankers never lose.

The U.S. is a perfect example of what central bankers have wrought on the markets.

That's going to come to an end, and markets will get ugly when it does. Here's how to profit.
