Did The Dutch Central Bank Lie About Its Gold Bar List?
Head of the Financial Markets Division of the Dutch central bank, Aerdt Houben, stated in an interview for newspaper Het Financieele Dagblad published in October 2016 that releasing a bar list of the Dutch official gold reserves “would cost hundreds of thousands of euros”. In this post we’ll expose this is virtually impossible – the costs to publish the bar list should be close to zero – and speculate about the far reaching implications of this falsehood.  Recap This story started a couple of ye

The View From 2011
Today, we will continue our discussion of the “gold sterilization” of 1937. June 18, 2017: The “Gold Sterilization” of 1937 June 25, 2017: The “Gold Sterilization” of 1937 #2: Fumbling and Bumbling We will look at an influential 2011 paper by Douglas Irwin, available here: http://www.nber.org/papers/w17595.pdf All in all, I think the paper is pretty good, at least in its basic descriptions. It meanders into the usual channels of pointless Monetarism, with some equally pointless math, but it does

The “Gold Sterilization” of 1937
Today, we will start investigating the U.S. recession of 1937, and along with that, claims that the Federal Reserve caused it by some sort of misbehavior. As is our usual practice, we will begin with just looking at some general information about that time. Industrial production had a short, sharp shock in 1937. Here’s what it looked like in terms of nominal GDP: I am not going to try to disentangle what was going on at that time. There were a lot of things, from the introduction of Social Sec

The Threat Of An Asteroid Striking Earth Is Higher Than Originally Thought
New research from a team of Czech scientists, which discovered new asteroids traveling around our planet, suggests that the risk of earth being hit by one of those extraterrestrial rocks is increasing. The likelihood of an asteroid striking Earth increased after the team studied 144 large meteors from the Taurids, a meteor stream – the very stream which appears in our skies twice a year. Most of these asteroids are small and pose no real threat. But some are alarming in size. The team of Czech s

Russia Prepares Financial ‘Backup’ Plan?
The grand order of things could be undergoing some major overhauls. To put it more bluntly, a war to reset the global financial order is about to be unleashed. Preparations inside Russia are being made in case the ultimate banking sanctions are placed on them, cutting off commerce inside the all-encompassing Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecomm SWIFT system – which runs credit, debt, and banking card transactions across a real time global network. As it would be doled out by the banking elites

EU Orders Austria, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway to Stop Border Controls: Or What?
Bureaucrats should not go about making orders they cannot enforce. It serves no purpose other than to make the bureaucrats look ridiculous. Here is a case in point: Brussels Orders EU Countries to SCRAP Internal Checks Within Six Months. In an announcement tonight, eurocrats said there was no justification for keeping police checkpoints at frontiers within the bloc and said they must be removed by the end of the year. The diktat means that Austria, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway will all

  Hyperinflation around the Globe 
Angola (1991-1999) Angola went through the worst inflation from 1991 to 1995. In early 1991, the highest denomination was 50,000 kwanzas. By 1994, it was 500,000 kwanzas. In the 1995 currency reform, 1 kwanza reajustado was exchanged for 1,000 kwanzas. The highest denomination in 1995 was 5,000,000 kwanzas reajustados. In the 1999 currency reform, 1 new kwanza was exchanged for 1,000,000 kwanzas reajustados. The overall impact of hyperinflation: 1 new kwanza = 1,000,000,000 pre-1991 kwanzas.

  Chris Powell: Why invest in gold miners if they won't defend themselves?
Mines and Money Asia Conference, Hong Kong Friday, April 7, 2017 Since we gathered here a year ago, gold and silver market manipulation has burst into the open and become undeniable. Even some mainstream financial news organizations have had to report it, if begrudgingly and only briefly. But the gold and silver mining industry itself keeps running away from it. Fortunately, this conference allows it to be discussed anyway. The biggest development in gold and silver market manipulation in the la

Gold coins: The Vienna Philharmonic
The Vienna Philharmonic has been minted by the Austrian Mint "Münze Österreich AG" since 1989. After Great Britain, Austria was the second state in Europe to start producing an official gold coin. Until 1991 the coin was minted in one ounce and quarter ounce versions. Due to the great sales success, a tenth-ounce coin was released in 1991, which was followed by a half-ounce in 1994.

Are you investing for the short, medium or long term? Or are you diversifying, saving or using gold as a form of financial insurance?

Vanadium is a soft, silvery gray, ductile transition metal and is the 22nd most abundant element in the Earth’s crust. Vanadium in not found by itself, instead it’s most often found in chemically combined forms occurring in about 65 different minerals and has been historically mined as a by-product of other mining operations. Vanadium is primarily obtained from the minerals vanadinite (Pb5(VO)3Cl) and carnotite (K2(UO2)2VO4·1-3H2O). It is found in magnetite (iron oxide) deposits that are als

Treasury eyeing issuance of 100-year U.S. government debt
NEW YORK -- Steven Mnuchin, U.S. Treasury secretary, said today that his staff have begun to look into issuing U.S. government debt with maturities of as long as 50 or 100 years. Mr. Mnuchin said he was not making any "formal announcement" on whether the Treasury would issue longer-dated bonds but he had "already begun to talk to staff" about it. This builds on earlier comments made before he took office that he was open to the idea. The move would mark a historic shift in policy for the world's

David McWilliams, economist, writer and journalist, has warned that the coming French election may lead to the euro breaking up and that Ireland should have a ‘plan B’ and ‘print punts’ in order to be ready for the collapse of the “single currency.” David McWilliams at Ireland’s Banking Inquiry McWilliams writes This time last year, only a few of us were suggesting that Brexit was likely.

Liberals, Not Trump, to Blame for Backlash
Here’s an interesting view in the Wall Street Journal that will ring a bell for for many readers: Liberals Killed the Freedom of Movement. By suppressing debate about Islam, nationalism and terror, the left set the stage for today’s backlash. Politicians across the West are saying the same thing in what is shaping up to be the widest rollback of the freedom of movement in decades. It’s not just right-wing nationalists like Marine Le Pen in France or Hungary’s Viktor Orbán. Centrists get it, too

Who Owns the World’s Largest Gold Hoards? – Not the Central Banks!
It’s a common misconception that the world’s major central banks and monetary authorities own large quantities of gold bars. Most of them do not. Instead, this gold is owned by the sovereign states that have entrusted it to the respective nation’s central bank, and the central banks are merely acting as guardians of the gold. Tracing the ownership question a step further, what are sovereign states? A sovereign state is an entity with legal personality that is represented by one government. And w
