Debt, Dollars, DOW, War, Silver, and Shirts
Yes, they are connected. Dollars are created as debt. More dollars in circulation = more debt. More debt means consumption is “pulled forward” from the future so consumption can occur now. This usually ends badly. Commercial banks and central banks have created trillions of new dollars. Each new dollar devalues every other dollar currently in circulation, in savings, and in pension accounts. Prices rise! Wars are costly, kill people and produce little. Governments like wars because t

So When Will China’s Debt Bubble Finally Blow Up?
The upside is fake stability. The downside is too ugly to contemplate. Corporate debt in China has soared to $18 trillion, or 169% of GDP, the largest pile of corporate debt in the world, according to the worried Bank for International Settlements. The OECD has warned about it earlier this year. The New York Fed warned about this debt boom in February and that it could lead to a “financial crisis,” but that authorities have many tools to control it. The IMF regularly warns about China’s corporat

Silver Cycles and War Cycles
Why Silver Cycles and War Cycles? Because silver prices and wars are connected, and because cycles have predictive value when viewed over the long term.  Look at silver prices since the year 1900.  Yes, silver has not freely traded for a long time, but there is value in the study. Six important silver lows have been identified with green ovals.  Two other lows in 1931 and 1971 are ignored.  The six lows identified approximately match these wars: Low            Date

Do Seasonal Adjustments Help Identify Business Cycles?
Various statistics that governments produce on a regular basis carry the label "seasonally adjusted". What is the meaning of this label? According to popular thinking the data that is observed over time (labelled as time series) is determined by four factors, which are:The trend factorThe cyclical factorThe seasonal factorThe irregular factorIt is accepted that the trend determines the general direction of the data over time, while the cyclical factor causes movements that are related to the bus

Gold Prices Advance towards Resistance on Weak Dollar and Cautious FOMC Minutes, Palladium Hits 16-Year High
GOLD PRICES rallied towards its resistance level this Thursday morning in London, while the US Dollar remained weak after rather dovish hints from Fed officials suggesting that the next rate hike may be further postponed, writes Steffen Grosshauser at BullionVault. Gold briefly touched $1289 per ounce before dropping back to $1286 failing to reach the resistance level of $1294 and the psychological barrier of $1300.  The metal started its rise from $1268 on Thursday after

The Daily Market Report: Gold Consolidates Awaiting FOMC Minutes
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/08-16-17 Gold is consolidating within yesterday’s range, awaiting the FOMC minutes from July’s Fed confab. Earlier tests of the downside were limited and short-lived and the yellow metal is now trading modestly higher on the day. It will be interesting to see if the level of concern about waning inflation pressures was elevated beyond that which was expressed in the July policy statement. I suspect that the minutes will do nothing to mitigate the expectation that the Fed is o

The LBMA is a ploy of the Central Bank Community
This article is about the way the Central Bank Community manipulates the price of gold and the role of the LBMA within. We describe some of the signs that the Central Bank Community manipulate the price of gold and that they are using the LBMA to reach their goal. Is the manipulation of the gold price a classic case of Diffusion of responsibility because so many organizations are involved and avoid taking responsibility? Manipulation is a joint effort of the Central Bank Community The signs

Nico Simons: LBMA is the front for gold market rigging by central banks
Dutch financial journalist Nico Simons today compiles admissions of central bank involvement with the gold market and concludes that the London Bullion Market Association is just a front for central bank rigging of the price of the monetary metal. The LBMA, Simons writes, provides central banks with the secrecy necessary for market rigging and this rigging, not any free market, determines the gold price. Simons' analysis is headlined "The LBMA Is a Ploy of the Central Bank Community" and it's po

  Can a government surplus cause the economy to tank? 
According to the article linked HERE, if the US or the Australian or the UK government repaid all of its debt, the economy would tank. The article contains such a large number of factual errors and such a copious amount of nonsense that completely debunking it would take far more time than I’m prepared to spend, so in this post I’ll only deal with a few of the flaws. To begin, the article points out that US government surpluses have, in the past, often been followed by depressions or recessions,

“It’s Actually Quite Shocking” Top Silver CEO Explains How Huge Industry Changes Will Drive Prices To New Highs
There is a feeling of unease about central bank actions, various conflicts around the world, and an ever expanding involvement of governments in the private lives of their respective citizens. People are starting to understand that the propaganda party can’t go on for ever and that real crisis is just around the corner, if not already here. So how do you protect your assets from the inevitable financial, economic and monetary collapse to come? We simply need to look to history, which has shown t

A looming threat to the stock market’s calm is not even on investors’ radar
BusinessInside/Pedro Nicolaci da Costa/08-09-17 In normal times, a looming changing of the guard in the world’s most powerful central bank would be dominating Wall Street’s attention. But these are not normal times. With headlines consumed by Donald Trump’s chaotic presidency — investigations into possible campaign collusion with Russia, the collapse of healthcare legislation promised for seven years, and now a diplomatic standoff with North Korea — the strong likelihood that Trump will replace

THE FIRST BUBBLE HAS ARRIVED
Some of you probably remember me saying that the final vertical phase of a bubble is characterized by price rising at least 100% or more in a year or less. Bitcoin is clearly in the final vertical phase of its bubble. It’s now becoming more and more dangerous every day. At some point you just have to say enough is enough, get out, and stay out so you don’t get caught when the bubble pops and price comes crashing back to earth. Folks its not different this time. There is no fundamental reason for

  Signs Of Distress
The world is edging closer to the final moments after which everything will be forever changed. Grand delusions, perpetuated over decades, will finally hit the limits of reality and collapse in on themselves. We’re over-budget and have eaten deeply into the principal balances of all of our main trust accounts. We are ecologically overdrawn, financially insolvent, monetarily out past the Twilight Zone, consuming fossil fuels (as in literally eating them), and adding 80,000,000 net souls to the pl

Digital Enslavement Is Now Assured: ACChain - Rory Hall
This is justification for what I have been saying for a year or more – blockchain chain technology and cryptocurrencies are evil and will usher in a cashless society. If some of what I am about say sounds harsh it is because we are discussing our lives – not just our financial lives, but our ability to have the life we dream about, hope for and work to obtain. As we have pointed out, especially over the past few months, the too big to jail banks, IMF, United Nations and BIS have all been e

FLASH: Wall Street Journal acknowledges gold leasing and swaps question ...
* * * In the report appended here the newspaper gets a Fed official to say that the Fed does not lease the gold of other nations. Well, of course not. But do those other nations lease or swap gold, or did they? And does the U.S. government lease or swap gold, or did it? If so, why? The president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, William Dudley, was asked that question in public last year and ran away from it as fast as he could.

Money Laundering Scandal at Australia’s Largest Bank Triggers Another Call for Ban of Cash
Ian Narev, the CEO of Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA), the nation’s largest bank is set to step down amid money laundering charges. Money laundering is big business in Australia because regulations do not cover lawyers, real estate agents, accountants, and CEOs ignoring warnings from police. Despite the obvious problem, it’s cash itself that gets the blame. There are several stories here buts let’s start with Australia’s Biggest Bank Says CEO Will Retire Amid Money-Laundering Scandal.

  The full guide to Nazi gold and currency war 
This morning’s papers and news-shows are full of the story that in 1939 the Bank of England facilitated the sale of Nazi looted gold, not just once but at least twice during that year. Both times without approval of the British government, despite an attempt to freeze Czech assets. The story of Nazi gold is both fascinating and tragic. We take a look at ‘the greatest robbery of all time’ and draw parallels with the modern day gold migration. What is Nazi gold? Nazi gold is a phrase that refers t
