Rates Spark: Lost In Translation

Fed Chair Powell has a clear ambition to hike by 50bp in December, and likely the same in February 2023, and maybe more. Given that, and a likely terminal funds rate of at least 5%, the drift lower in the US 10yr yield looks anomalous. Then again, year-end can be like that.

Austin Police Delay Release of Shooting Footage

Austin police have killed another person under strange circumstances. Rajan Moonesinghe, described by his family as a gentle giant and beloved uncle, was shot once in the back on the front porch of his home in the Bouldin neighborhood of South Austin. He was transported to a local hospital where he died. The department almost certainly has more detailed information to share because it has the officers' body worn camera video, which it presumably reviewed in compiling its public statement. That video, per department policy, should have been released on Nov. 29, 10 business days after the killing. As of press time, Nov. 30, the video has not been released.

Black Entrepreneur Talks About the Future of Cannabis

While Texas may not be the nation's model example of marijuana reform, recent local and national moves may force the state to catch up. As of Nov. 8, five more Texas cities have voted to decriminalize low-level marijuana possession. Austin voters overwhelmingly approved a measure decriminalizing possession of small amounts of cannabis in May (and the county hadn't been prosecuting people for that offense for years). Now, other Texas cities are following suit, with much credit to Ground Game Texas, the progressive nonprofit mobilizing liberal Texas voters. Measures like Austin's were on the ballot in Denton, San Marcos, Killeen, Elgin, and Harker Heights. All passed easily, with the slimmest win for cannabis possession being 60% of the vote in Harker Heights in Bell County and the strongest showing in San Marcos with 82% of the vote.
