    There is a false narrative about leveraged and inverse ETFs being spread by the prudential regulators, it is the unsubstantiated assertion that these products contribute to increased volatility in the financial markets because they must rebalance their portfolios in the same direction as the contemporaneous return on the underlying assets in order to maintain a constant leverage ratio.

  4. Grover Cleveland:

    It is the duty of those serving the people in public place closely to limit public expenditures to the actual needs of the government economically administered, because this bounds the right of the government to extract tribute from the earnings of labor or the property of the citizen, and because public extravagance begets extravagance among the people. We should never be ashamed of the simplicity and prudential economies which are best suited to the operation of a republican form of government and most compatible with the mission of the American people. Those who are selected for a limited time to manage public affairs are still of the people, and may do much by their example to encourage, consistently with the dignity of their official functions, that plain way of life which among their fellow-citizens aids integrity and promotes thrift and prosperity.
