Debt and Delusions – Part 2
This article was written for Miles Franklin by Gary Christenson. Part one is available here. The problem with debt is the creditor expects to be repaid. Sovereign debt will be “rolled over,” never extinguished, and repaid with new debt. We delude ourselves and pretend total debt will increase forever (it can’t). That explains global debt exceeding $230 trillion today and official U.S. government debt approaching $21 trillion, with unfunded liabilities adding another $100 – $200 trillion. There a

Silver Stackers: Measure your Stash like a Miner 
When attempting to quantify the amount and quality of a possible mineralized deposit on their property, exploration companies and producers generally follow a process which seeks to state, in reasonably accurate and concise terms, just what they have...or might have. Following the Bre-X fiasco, wherein 'highly inaccurate' reserves of a supposed deposit in Borneo were publicized and acted upon by a tidal wave of investors, sophisticated and neophyte alike, a new set of reporting rules

Shelter From The Storm
This article was written for Miles Franklin by Gary Christenson. Bob Dylan “Shelter From The Storm” “I bargained for salvation and she gave me a lethal dose.” What Storm? Why do we need shelter? The stock market hit all-time highs in January, corrected, and might rally to new highs… or maybe not… See below. Official unemployment is low if you believe the statistics and ignore the millions excluded from the calculations. Inflation, according to official numbers, is low. New cars may have doubled

OWN GOLD BEFORE PANDORA REOPENS THE BOX
In the old Greek mythology, the opening of Pandora’s box unleashed many evils on the world. Within the next few years, we will see a modern Pandora’s box being opened that will lead to events in the world which will be as devastating as when the ancient box was opened. The very big difference is that this time the consequences will not be part of historical mythology. Instead they will be real and catastrophic for the whole world on a scale never experienced in history. Pandora – the all giving

Future U.S. Oil Production Will Collapse Just As Quickly As It Increased
While U.S. oil production reached a new peak of 10.25 million barrels per day, the higher it goes, the more breathtaking will be the inevitable collapse.  Thus, as the mainstream media touts the glorious new record in U.S. production that has both surpassed its previous peak in 1970 and Saudi Arabia’s current oil production, it’s a bittersweet victory.Why?  There are two critical reasons the current record level of U.S. oil production won’t last and is also, a house of cards.  First of all, oil

Interest Rates: Going Up Or Down
The 10 Year T-Note yields only 2.6%. But 18 months ago the rate was under 1.5%. In our current era of supposed central bank printed prosperity the low yield tells us digital currency units have little time value. Current European rates are “negative” for trillions of euros in sovereign debt. Argentina sold 100 year bonds. HOW DID IT GET SO CRAZY? The short version is that central banks intervened in the debt and equity markets so much that the financial system is a bit crazy. What Is Crazy and U

Silver Antidote to Bubble Craziness - Gary Christenson
CHARACTERISTICS OF BUBBLE CRAZINESS: U.S. stocks, according to many measures, are the most over-valued in history. We live in a Bubble Zone!

  The Matrix of Power 
The disappearance of knowledge from human consciousness is a rare phenomenon, but there are recorded instances of knowledge which has evaporated. As a curious example,Pancirollus, writing in the 16th Century mentions that, among many other cases of lost technology, in the time of the Roman Empire a man who had invented flexible glass was presented to Emperor Tiberius.

Keith Barron Wants to Mine U3O8 'Cheep'
More mining companies should follow the example of the garimpeiro miners of Brazil who mine until they fail to make a profit, says Bob Moriarty of 321 Gold, who discusses one gold and one uranium company that may be changing the paradigm. The garimpeiro miners in Brazil can't spell either. All they know how to do is to mine at a profit. Unlike professionally run mining companies, they mine until they fail to make a profit. Then they stop. All garimpeiros

Rising Powers, Global Money and the Age of Empire (2010), by Steven Bryan
You can tell from the title of this book alone that I would be interested in it. There aren’t very many books out there on the Classical Gold Standard era of the latter Nineteenth Century. Indeed, I would say that Giulio Gallarotti’s book The Anatomy of an International Monetary Regime: the Classical Gold Standard, 1880-1914 (1995) is about the only one I could name. There are other books, but they are collections of papers. I like Gallarotti’s book a lot — he demolishes all kinds of common misc

Trend Forecaster Predicts: “Bitcoin Will Soar Over $100,000… It’s The Gold Standard Of Digital Currency”
Recent reports that Bitcoin and blockchain technologies are in a bubble may be inspired by the fact that crypto currencies stand to completely upend the global financial systems that have been in place for hundreds of years. And while it’s easy to draw parallels to Tulip Mania and suggest Bitcoin prices may be reaching a top because of the rapid and meteoric rise of cryptocurrencies in recent months, what tulips didn’t have that Bitcoin and other blockchain technologies do, is access to, quite l

Antarctic Volcano Warning: Ash Could ‘Encircle The Globe’ Causing Worldwide Health Problems
Scientists are sounding the alarm about a volcano eruption in Antartica that could cause global health problems. The ash from this eruption could encircle the globe, affecting millions of people. Deception Island, off the coast of the Antarctic Peninsula, is a hotbed of volcanic activity with at least 50 craters spread across the region. A recent study done in the area by scientists has found evidence that an eruption on the island could disrupt air traffic on continents in the Southern Hemisphe

Total Return of Stocks, Bonds, Gold, 1871-2015
Today, we are looking at the total return of stocks, bonds and gold, from 1871 to 2015. The source of the data is here: http://www.econ.yale.edu/~shiller/data.htm I calculated the total return this way: stocks: index return plus 1/12th of dividend each month bonds: “long term” bond yield, compounded monthly gold: price in dollars This is not a very good way of calculating a bond index. There is no provision for the market price of bonds, among other issues. But, it should be good enough for a ro

Gold, Biker Wisdom and Dollar Devaluation
A common expression among bikers who love to ride is, “It’s not the destination, it’s the journey.” TS Elliott and others made similar statements nearly a century ago. How Does This Apply to Gold and Dollar Devaluation? Some adults understand: Voltaire said over 200 years ago, “Paper money eventually returns to its intrinsic value – zero.” The value of the U.S. dollar has declined from about 1/40 of an ounce of gold to its current level of about 1/1300 ounce of gold since 1971. Because central
