Frederic Bastiat (1801-1850): Between the French and Marginalist Revolutions 
CLAUDE FREDERIC BASTIAT was a French economist, legislator, and writer who championed private property, free markets, and limited government. Perhaps the main underlying theme ofBastiat's writings was that the free market was inherently a source of "economic harmony" among individuals, as long as government was restricted to the function of protecting the lives, liberties, and property of citizens from theft or aggression.

The origin of cycles
It was Karl Marx who was among the first believers that cyclical behaviour was endemic to free markets.He lived through a time when there was a regular cycle of boom and bust, with phases of economic expansion followed by contraction. Workers were employed and then unemployed, and the only way this could be stopped, in Marxian economics, was for the workers to acquire the means of production, or more correctly, the state to do so on their behalf.Other economists, such as Jevons and Wicksell, rec

JPMorgan’s Motivation
To be sure, there are many who reject, out of hand, my allegation that JPMorgan has accumulated a massive amount of physical silver over the past seven years, amounting to 700 million ounces or more. That’s completely understandable, since I can’t document and point out all 700 million oz and few have taken the time to review the basis of my claim. It doesn’t matter that I first picked up on JPMorgan’s quest to acquire physical silver four years ago, by which time it had already accumulated 300

Four Percent 10-year Note Yield Will Be a Floor No...
The two most important factors in determining the level of sovereign bond yields are the credit and inflation risks extant within a nation. When determining a country’s ability to service its debt investors must analyze not only the absolute debt level, but also the ratios of debt and deficits to GDP. In addition, the current rate of inflation must also be viewed within the context of debt in order to make an accurate assumption as to the level of future inflation. When analyzing historical meas

Should we Restore the Gold Standard
This blog post is a guest post on BullionStar's Blog by the renowned blogger JP Koning who will be writing about monetary economics, central banking and gold. BullionStar does not endorse or oppose the opinions presented but encourage a healthy debate.  Would it make sense to rebuild an international gold standard like the one we had in the late 1800s? Larry White says the idea has merit, David Glasner believes it isn't worth the risk. Over the years I've followed the back-and-forth between thes

Digital gold from Perth Mint threatens $122 billion in gold-backed ETFs
The Perth Mint's release of digital gold certificates for trading, holding, and transferring physical gold could have profound consequences for the $US98 billion ($122.5 billion) in gold-backed exchange traded funds. The technology underpinning the digital gold certificates could have other uses such as the clearing and settlement of equities. At this stage the digitisation of gold ownership by the Perth Mint is available only to institutional investors, such as banks, which can then offer it to

Mortgages: A Perfect Use for Blockchain
There are excellent uses for blockchain. Here's one I proposed years ago that is now in media discussion today. Please consider Blockchain Eyed for Mortgage Bundling That Caused 2008 Crisis. A group of big financial institutions wants to use the blockchain to help resurrect the packaging of home mortgages into securities, a business that almost destroyed the global banking system in 2008. Credit Suisse Group AG, U.S. Bancorp, Wells Fargo & Co. and Western Asset Management Co. said Thursday that

4 Blockchain Stocks to Consider and How They Perform vs. Holding Crypto
Holding large-cap cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum have been very profitable long-term, but how does this compare to holding blockchain stocks?  And what are some of the top blockchain stocks to consider? As this new technology and the industry springing up around it grows, opportunities arise in multiple areas.  For example, we’ve recently seen how a company’s stock can shoot to the moon the moment it announces it intends to have anything to do with blockchain.  While the dramatic ext

Believing The Impossible

Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast." ~ Lewis Carroll, Through The Looking Glass To borrow from Lewis Carroll: To have confidence in today's central bank-created bubble markets, we have to believe in six impossible things.

John Hathaway: Gold and bitcoin are attacked to defend government currencies
John Hathaway's latest market letter for Tocqueville Asset Management may get as close to a complaint of gold price suppression as anyone can while retaining some respectability in the financial industry. Hathaway writes that there have been efforts to drive down not only gold but also the cryptocurrency bitcoin because of the competition they pose to government currencies.

Gold: Not the Typical Year-End Buying Opportunity
Ron Struthers of Struthers' Resource Stock Report takes a look back at gold's performance in the last quarter of 2017, and describes a producer he'll be adding to his portfolio in early 2018. As of my last Seeking Alpha comments on gold on September 15, gold (GLD) had hit my $1,360 target and I was contemplating the possibility of a break above $1,375. I believed at that time the best chance for this was in September/October, because after that we would
