  Global Times - Hard lessons from China's silver standard 
History will repeat, but this time around America will not be able to coin silver Trade Dollars to conduct trade with Asia. Oops. Oh, where O where did my empire go? Source: Caijing.com.cn  [08:30 July 15 2009] Chinese macroeconomic historian Ray Huang used to say the Qing Dynasty never understood monetary and fiscal policy, and therefore was unable to compete against the West. In those days, monetary policy in China was essentially tied to silver, the national money standard since t

Who said it, when and where
Over the years I've accumulated a long list of quotes about money and banking extracted from online articles and books I've read.Unlike most other sites that post pithy remarks from famous authors, I include hyperlinks to their sources, so that anyone who wishes can not only verifya quote but, perhaps more importantly, read the context in which it was used.

  What should the gold/silver ratio be
The price of gold is dominated by investment demand* to such an extent that nothing else matters as far as its price performance is concerned. Investment demand is also the most important driver of silver’s price trend, although in silver’s case industrial demand is also a factor to be reckoned with. In addition, changes in mine supply have some effect on the silver market, because unlike the situation in the gold market the annual supply of newly-mined silver is not trivial relative to the exis

Paper Tiger Preying on Gold Bugs – The IMF and its phantom Gold Sales 
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) was set up in 1944 by the victorious allied powers at Bretton Woods, N.H. It was designed to serve as the linchpin of the post World War II international monetary system based on fixed exchange rates. It was well-understood that there could be no fixed exchange rate system without a gold anchor. Thus gold was retained as a bedrock, but multiple credit expansion was permitted, even encouraged. The U.S. dollar was to be treated as equivalent of gold. This meant that gold was double-counted in the system. Member countries were called upon to subscribe their quota of IMF capital in gold, called the first tranche, which set the limit of each member's line of credit with the IMF called drawing rights. A second tranche was also available to members in good standing in case of emergency (read: in case of a run on the central bank).

  How to stop the Depression 
Capital erosion is not natural nor is it inevitable. Rather, it has been inflicted upon the world economy by the unmindful and irresponsible monetary policy of the United States in deliberately driving the rate of interest to zero.

The fiat money quantity (FMQ) 
Summary : This paper seeks to establish a measure of currency quantity that helps economists identify and estimate the risk that confidence in fiat currencies might be significantly eroded or even vanish altogether. It is this phenomenon that was referred to in the great European currency inflations of the 1920s as Katastrophenhausse, or a crack-up boom, when ordinary people lose all confidence in a fiat currency, disposing of it as rapidly as possible instead preferring ownership of goods.This is

  The Second Greatest Story Ever Told 
Fable has it that paper currency came into being as warehouse receipts issued by the goldsmith against gold left on deposit for safe-keeping. The owners found that they could make purchases with these warehouse receipts as easily as with gold coins. Then the goldsmith went on lending out at interest his fictitious warehouse receipts. According to this fable, the fraudulent business of the goldsmith in issuing warehouse receipts against non-existent gold was the embryonic form of the fractional-reserve banking of today.

Currency exchange value dynamics
In a recent article[i] I postulated that the dollar could lose all its purchasing power with a rapidity that will come as an unpleasant bombshell, even to those who already see inflation as society’s greatest problem in the future. The key to understanding why this may be so lies in human reactions to the monetary consequences of the next credit crisis. The undermining of the dollar as a currency affects all other fiat currencies, because it is the reserve currency and all financial markets use

When will the next credit crisis occur
The timing of any credit crisis is set by the rate at which the credit cycle progresses. People don’t think in terms of the credit cycle, wrongly believing it is a business cycle. The distinction is important, because a business cycle by its name suggests it emanates from business. In other words, the cycle of growth and recessions is due to instability in the private sector and this is generally believed by state planners and central bankers.This is untrue, because cycles of business activity h

How The Investor Fundamentally Changed The Silver Market
While silver investors continue to be discouraged about the low price, the market has experienced a fundamental change that needs to be understood.  Ever since governments removed silver from official coinage, over 50 years ago, the market has been supplemented by several billion ounces of silver.  The majority of that supply has been depleted.The reason the United States and other countries stopped producing official silver coinage wasn’t due to any monetary conspiracy; rather it was based on a

Should you consider investing/buying Gold or Bitcoin
Recently, we have been asked by a number of clients about the precious metals and what our advice would be with regards to buying, selling or holding physical or trading positions in the metals.  There are really only a few short and simple answers to this question and they are revolve around the concept of providing a hedge against risk, capital preservation and opportunity for returns.  Let’s explore the details a bit further. First, Gold, historically, has been and will continue to be the bas

History Says Global Debt Levels Will Lead to Another Crisis
It may feel like we’ll escape a debt crisis since, well, the world hasn’t ended in spite of runaway debt levels. Some of us hard money people feel like we’re taking crazy pills; how the heck can debt be so out of control, so completely unpayable, and yet the financial system keeps chugging along as if nothing’s wrong?Well, history has a message for us: the current calm won’t last forever, because there is a direct link between government debt levels and the number of financial crises that occur.

Debt binge threatens UK economy as IMF warns of financial crash
A surge in household borrowing is paving the way for another financial crisis, according to the International Monetary Fund. In a hard-hitting report published ahead of its annual meetings in Washington this week, the watchdog warned of "risks down the road" from rising levels of debt. And raising the prospect of a new financial disaster, ten years on from the last, the fund said: "Higher household debt is associated with a greater probability of a banking crisis, especially when debt is already

The forthcoming global crisis
The global economy is now in an expansionary phase, with bank credit being increasingly available for non-financial borrowers. This is always the prelude to the crisis phase of the credit cycle.Most national economies are directly boosted by China, the important exception being America. This is confirmed by dollar weakness, which is expected to continue. The likely trigger for the crisis will be from the Eurozone, where the shift in monetary policy and the collapse in bond prices will be greates

“This Is Where The Next Financial Crisis Will Come ...
By Zero Hedge In an extensive, must-read report published on Monday by Deutsche Bank’s Jim Reid, the credit strategist unveiled an extensive analysis of the “Next Financial Crisis”, and specifically what may cause it, when it may happen, and how the world could respond assuming it still has means to counteract the next economic and financial crash.
