Two-Thirds Of The Top Primary Silver Miners Suffered Production Declines In 2017
It has been a rough year for many primary silver miners as two-thirds have suffered declines in production.  Also, many high ranking silver producing countries are also experiencing a pronounced reduction in their domestic silver mine supply.  According to the data put out by World Metal Statistics, Chile’s silver production is down 20% in the first eight months of the year, while Australia is down 19%, Mexico declined 2% and Peru lower by 1%.The Silver Institute will be releasing their 2017 Sil

The Cycle of Falling Interest
Over the past few weeks, we have looked at the effects of falling interest rates: falling discount applied to future cash flows (and hence rising stock and bond prices), and especially falling marginal productivity of debt (MPoD). Falling MPoD means that we get less and less GDP “juice” for each new dollar of borrowing “squeeze”. Last week, we proposed an economic law: if MPoD < 1 then the economy is unsustainable. MPoD has been falling since at least 1950, and is currently well under 0.4 (havin

Lithium Supercycle
The truth, in regards to the world’s mineral resources, is that we in the western developed countries are usually not in control of supply. “The spectre of resource insecurity has come back with a vengeance. The world is undergoing a period of intensified resource stress, driven in part by the scale and speed of demand growth from emerging economies and a decade of tight commodity markets. Poorly designed and short-sighted policies are also making things worse, not better. Whether or not resou

Oil Breaking Out, But the Money Is Elsewhere
Tom Beck, founder of Portfolio Wealth Global, discusses the energy sector and highlights one commodity that he says appreciates when oil becomes overpriced. One resource industry dwarfs the rest of them put together: energy. The mega-shift of the 21st century is urbanization. For the first time in human history, more people live in cities than in rural areas. The consequences of this pivotal moment are attracting billionaire moguls across the globe, and

A House-Sized Asteroid Will ‘Skim By’ Earth In A Matter Of Days
On October 12, an asteroid the size of a house will barely miss earth as it skims by at a distance of 27,000 miles. This will be a close call considering the size of the otherworldly body. Asteroid 2012 TC4 will skim by earth a little too close for comfort. The latest observations, made on July 27, 31, and then again on August 5, revealed 2012 TC4 will pass within one-eighth of the moon’s distance from the planet. Scientists believe it will shave past Earth at a distance of around 44,000 kilomet

  One Nation Under Gold (2017), by James Ledbetter
One Nation Under Gold (2017), by James Ledbetter, is, pretty much, a gold-bashing exercise. I think it is propaganda: that is to say, not a forthright expression of an individual’s independent and informed view, but an intentional effort to mold public opinion to serve certain agendas. The tone and method is very much like The Power of Gold: the History of an Obsession, by Peter Bernstein, seventeen years earlier — so similar, indeed, that it sometimes seems that it could have come from the same

Why Lithium, Why Now?
Our ‘who cares’ attitude towards pollution and habitat destruction are all increasing what were once tolerable pressures towards, and sometimes already beyond, the breaking point in ecosystems all over the world. Fortunately, people, governments, and corporations are waking up and trying to reduce their carbon footprint. Our attitude towards environmental issues is changing, we are responding to potentially catastrophic climate change and to global (and all the way down to the mi

Gold Miners’ Q2’17 Fundamentals
The gold miners’ stocks have spent months adrift, cast off in the long shadow of the Trumphoria stock-market rally.  This vexing consolidation has left a wasteland of popular bearishness.  But once a quarter earnings season arrives, bright fundamental sunlight dispelling the obscuring sentiment fogs.  The major gold miners’ just-reported Q2’17 results prove this sector remains strong fundamentally, and super-undervalued. Four times a year publicly-traded compan

The Crime Against Silver 
In 1873, the Fourth Coinage Act was enacted by the US Congress. Western silver miners labeled this measure the "Crime of '73" because it stopped the printing of US silver dollars. The US had, unofficially, abandoned its bimetallic standard in favor of a monometallic one – gold.

“Inflate or Die,” Peak Silver and Gold’s Coming Breakout
“Inflate or die” was Richard Russell’s characterization of our economic system and the central bank response to most problems during the past three decades. INFLATE THE CURRENCY SUPPLY!  Examine the currency supply as measured by M3 and reported by the St. Louis Fed. Fiat currencies are created as debt.  Inflating currency supply means increasing total debt.  Global debt exceeds $200 trillion.  Per the St. Louis Federal Reserve, total debt securities in the U.S. exceed $40 trillion.

Time for a new gold standard for Asia
Over half the world’s population, living in the Eurasian land mass, understands that gold is money. The leaders of the Asian nations also know that this is true as well. The leaders of the security and economic alliance of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, which now incorporates most of these peoples, also know that to become independent of Western hegemony and to forge their own way, they must abandon Western financial systems and markets, replacing them with a new monetary order, serving

Silver Bullion In Secret Bull Market
by Sean Broderick of Uncommon Wisdom Daily Do you think silver is poised to go higher? I sure do. That’s because I’m watching what is going on in the world’s silver ETFs. I’m also watching the mountain of forces that are piling up to push the metal higher. Look at this chart. It shows all the metal held by the world’s physical silver ETFs (black line).

From Yukon to Patagonia, gold explorers stir after sleep
From Canada's Yukon to southern Patagonia, outbreaks of gold-rush fever are popping up as bullion markets stage a tentative recovery. The number of holes drilled at gold deposits has been rising steadily for more than a year, according to S&P Global Market Intelligence. And while early-stage exploration budgets haven't kept pace with spending at existing mines, prospecting hot spots are starting to pop up in traditional destinations Canada, Australia, and Latin America. In some parts of Argenti

The Life Cycle of Money
In the aftermath of the global economic crisis of 2008-2009, governments throughout the world have fostered a tenuous recovery predicated on massive increases in money supplies and debasement of currencies. Note however, that monetary debasement is not a recent phenomenon; it is simply the natural life cycle of money.There are six well-defined stages in the life cycle of money. This progression has occurred in every dominant civilization

Unprecedented Catastrophe
You wouldn’t know it from what I do for a living – but generally speaking, I am as optimistic a person as you will find.  Just ask anyone who knows me, regarding essentially all topics.  However, I’m also a realist, which is why I’m so good at what I do.  And given this blessing/curse, as well as relentless analysis and an inexorably logical mind, I’ve been able to forecast the economic devastation that has unfolded over the past two decades better than most – partly due to said “gifts,” but mos
