The Gold Standard
According to Mises, money’s function as a medium of exchange is thus the central one, while its store of value and unit of account functions are merely subordinate functions. I would say store of value and unit of account is what makes the medium of exchange marketable. The medium of exchange has to be simple to understand, not only by educated people but also the most uneducated. It has to be easily accessed, not only in ideal circumstances but also in difficult ones. Many things have been trie

Citizens Will Soon Turn their Rage Towards Central Bankers
Via Email, I received an interesting article from Albert Edwards at Societe Generale. Edwards claims citizens will soon turn their rage towards Central Bankers. In an age of “radical uncertainty” how long will it be before angry citizens tire of blaming an impotent political system for their ills and turn on the main culprits for their poverty – unelected and virtually unaccountable central bankers? I expect central bank independence will be (and should be) the next casualty of the current poli

  HUBRIS KILLS WHILST GOLD PROTECTS 
Hubris is a deadly sin. It is an arrogance and conceit of the highest degree that eventually leads to failure. As we reach the final stages of the current economic cycle, hubris is prevalent everywhere. Central bankers and bankers believe that they can continue to create wealth by printing and borrowing money. Since it has worked so well for 100 years in this latest cycle, why can’t it continue? The laws of nature can’t be set aside Throughout history, governments have attempted to set aside th

An Empire Self-Destructs - Jeff Thomas
Empires are built through the creation or acquisition of wealth. The Roman Empire came about through the productivity of its people and its subsequent acquisition of wealth from those that it invaded. The Spanish Empire began with productivity and expanded through the use of its large armada of ships, looting the New World of its gold. The British Empire began through localized productivity and grew through its creation of colonies worldwide – colonies that it exploited, bringing the weal

Valuation Anomalies Suggest Historic Precious Metal Lows
Today, we’re going to start with an interview with billionaire Frank Giustra – perhaps, Canada’s most famous mining stock promoter.  Who, in this interview, comes as close to accusing gold of being manipulated as mainstream investors are “allowed.” Do you think the gold market is manipulated? No, I don’t think it is manipulated.  Manipulation is a strong word. But I do believe it is managed, by the policy makers who need to keep confidence in a system when it goes sideways.  Any major spike in t

Falling Rocks in the Promised Land - Gary Christenson
Yes, traumatic market events (falling rocks) occur, even though markets are “managed,” statistics are manipulated, and politicians pretend to care about something besides their next election. From John P. Hussman, Ph.D. Fair Value and Bubbles: 2017 Edition “Unfortunately, investors seem to have concluded that central bank easing is omnipotent, despite the fact that the Fed eased persistently and aggressively, to no effect, through the entire course of 2000-2002 and 2007-2009 market collapse

Batty Ideas: Boiling Frogs and BATs
The widely believed boiling frog theory says if put a frog in boiling water it will jump out but if you slowly raise the temperature it will stay in until it dies. The theory is wrong, frogs will not stay in water to be slowly boiled to death. Nonetheless, the boil them slowly idea lingers on in many forms. For example, Rep. Kevin Brady Floats 5-Year Phase-In of Border Adjustment Tax. The top House Republican tax legislator floated a five-year phase-in to his controversial “border adjustment”

I love Gold because it gives financial security 
It is not Gold in and of itself that excites me, but the many benefits of sound money. Another benefit is financial security. Can sound money give you financial security? There is something very comforting in knowing that what you earn today will retain its purchasing power in the years to come. Indeed, the same silver dime that bought a loaf of bread in the 1960s can still buy a loaf of bread with its precious metal content – which is worth about $1.00 today.

Gold, the Dow, Bubbles and the Coming Correction
The Dow Jones Industrial Average is trading at all-time highs. The NASDAQ and the S&P 500 are similar. This begs many questions. Are the high stock prices supported by fundaments or have they been levitated with “easy money?” Bubbles always collapse and prices crash. Stock indices are too high, but are they in historical bubble territory? What about gold, silver, real estate and bonds? Are they also in bubbles? Quick Conclusions: Easy money and massive debts – thanks to the Federal Reserve

  A Short History of the Gold Cartel 
Governments want a low gold price to make national currencies look good. Gold is recognizable the world over as the "canary in the coal mine" when it comes to money. A rising gold price blurts the unpleasant truth that a national currency is being poorly managed and that its purchasing power is being inflated.

Investigating Trends in Median Home Prices: When Did Price Acceleration Start?
Fed Chairs Ben Bernanke and Janet Yellen re-blew the Alan Greenspan initiated housing bubble. However, the trend towards higher and higher home prices started well before that dynamic trio made a mess of everything. The following picture shows the true origin of escalating home prices. Median Home Prices 1963-Present To be fair, homes have gotten larger, with more features, better windows, etc. However, it is safe to say the explosion in credit that started when Nixon closed the gold window, e

Mile Markers on the Road to Ruin - Gary Christenson
We know much is currently wrong with our financial world, as discussed in the James Rickards book “The Road to Ruin” and elsewhere. The official U.S. government debt is nearly $20 trillion. Unfunded liabilities are 5 – 10 times larger. Debt has doubled every 8 – 9 years for decades – since the Federal Reserve was put in charge of devaluing the dollar. Debt will continue to grow, obviously out of control. Millions of Americans are out of work, regardless of the official statistics. Pr

The Golden Revolution, Revisited
Back in 2012 John Wiley and Sons published my first book, The Golden Revolution, the core thesis of which was that a longer-term consequence of the global financial crisis of 2008 would be the remonetization of gold. This would occur initially at the international level, that is, as a mean to settle accumulated international imbalances in trade and cross-border investment. The book then also explored how this might come about, what the implications were for the price of gold and for the financia

New Gold Pool at the BIS Basle: Part 2 – Pool vs Gold for Oil
This is Part 2 of a two-part series. The series focuses on collusive discussions and meetings that took place between the world’s most powerful central bankers in late 1979 and 1980 in an attempt to launch a central bank Gold Pool cartel to manipulate and control the free market price of gold. The meetings centered around the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) in Basle, Switzerland. Part 2 takes up where Part 1 left off, and begins by looking at developments in the BIS Gold Pool discussion
