  Diminishing Returns 
These two words are the hinge that is swinging American life — and the advanced techno-industrial world, for that matter — toward darkness. They represent an infection in the critical operations of daily life, like a metabolic disease, driving us into disorder and failure. And they are so omnipresent that we’ve failed to even notice the growing failure all around us. Mostly, these diminishing returns are the results of our over-investments in making complex systems more complex, for instance the

  Deep Subprime Auto Loan Delinquencies Reach 2007 Levels: The Next Big Short?
Subprime auto delinquencies have staked up so much that we are back at 2007 milestone levels. There’s a section of the auto-loan market — known in industry parlance as deep subprime — where delinquency rates have ticked up to levels last seen in 2007, according to data compiled by credit reporting bureau Equifax. “Performance of recent deep subprime vintages is awful,” Equifax said in a slide show on second-quarter credit trends. Analysts have been warning for years that subprime car loans pos

The weakest boom ever
[This post is a slightly-modified excerpt from a recent TSI commentary] The US economic boom that followed the bust of 2007-2009 is still in progress. It has been longer than average, but at the same time it has been unusually weak. The weakness is even obvious in the government’s own heavily-manipulated and positively-skewed data. For example, the following chart shows that during the current boom* the year-over-year growth rate of real GDP peaked at only 3.3% and has averaged only about 2.0%.

RISK ON: WAR, ECONOMY, DEBT, DOLLAR – RISK OFF: GOLD
Totally irresponsible policies by Governments and Central Banks have created the most dangerous situation that the world has ever experienced. Risk doesn’t arise quickly as the result of a single action or event. No, risk of the magnitude that the world is experiencing today is the result of many years or decades of economic mismanagement. Cycles are normal in nature and in the world economy. And cycles that are the result of the laws of nature normally play out in an orderly fashion without ext

Art Of The Deal Coauthor Says Trump Will Resign By End Of The Year: “Presidency Is Effectively Over… The Circle Is Closing At Blinding Speed”
Tony Schwartz, the man who co-authored Art of the Deal with Donald Trump in 1987, now says that the President will likely resign before the end of the year. In a series of Tweets earlier this week Schwartz showed his disdain for the President and echoed the sentiments of top Democrats who have claimed that Trump will either be impeached or voluntarily step away from the Presidency: I said some time ago I wasn’t going to tweet about Trump anymore. He hadn’t yet raised the stakes to the point of

The fiscal benefits of free trade
Western governments have an overriding problem, and that is they have reached or exceeded the bounds of taxation, at a time when legally mandated welfare costs are accelerating. Treasury departments in all the welfare nations are acutely aware of this problem, to which there’s no apparent solution. The economic recovery, so consistently forecast since the great financial crisis, has hardly materialised and has added to the problem.There is, if treasury economists could only understand it, a solu

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

Perth Mint CEO shines light on Australian gold exports in live business broadcast
It was a case of lights, camera, action at The Perth Mint this morning as leading figures from Western Australia’s business community gathered to report on the State’s economic fortunes live on Channel 9. Among the guests joining Today Perth News host Tracy Vo was Richard Hayes, CEO of The Perth Mint, who was invited to discuss the current strength of demand for Australian gold. Mr Hayes said that The Perth Mint, which refines more than 90% of Australia’s annual gold mine output, was currently e

U.S. Financial Stability and Gold
Recently, Fischer made an assessment of financial stability in the United States. What can we learn from it? On June 27, Stanley Fischer, Fed Vice Chairman, delivered a speech entitled “An Assessment of Financial Stability in the United States” at the IMF Workshop on Financial Surveillance and Communication: Best Practices from Latin America, the Caribbean, and Advanced Economies, Washington, D.C. We know that it was a few weeks ago, but it is still relevant today. Fischer explained that the Fed

Fanciful Fed Follies
Having just returned from boating in northern Georgian Bay and an area called The North Channel, I have been by and large out of contact with gold and silver prices since July 22 and am delighted to see that prices have stabilized after dipping in late Spring to under $1,210. Over the past month, the global stock markets have all danced around all-time highs with Dr. Copper forging a break-out above the $2.90 level, marking the highest close in two years. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos briefly became the

It’s Not Over: “How The US Could Lose A War Against North Korea And End Up In Ruins”
By now everyone is thoroughly inundated with information regarding the stances and standoff between President Trump and the U.S., and Kim Jong-Un and North Korea.  This is where “oversaturation” can lead to ignoring what is going on, followed up by complacency.  Americans in general have low attention spans and become easily bored with or tired of a situation that is ongoing.  The Vietnam war is a prime example of this, and that was followed with the second war in Iraq.  In both instances, growi

The Daily Market Report: Gold Retreats on Heightened Risk Appetite, but Finds Support
USAGOLD/Peter Grant/08-15-17 Gold came under additional corrective pressure in early U.S. trading, weighed by a further easing of geopolitical tensions, along with some better than expected U.S. economic data. While the yellow metal set new lows for the week, buying interest resurfaced well ahead of last week’s low. While North Korea may have walked back an imminent threat to Guam, I don’t believe anyone really thinks that the Korean crisis has been resolved. “Though North Korea is signaling its

“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

Gold Prices 'Shed Crisis Premium' as N.Korea's Kim 'Backs Down' to 'Foolish Yankees'
GOLD PRICES fell 1.4% in Asian and London trade Tuesday, erasing all of August's prior gains as world stock markets rose for a second day amid reports of easing tensions between the US and North Korea after last week's threats of nuclear missile strikes. As Washington's Secretary of Defense James Mattis said it would be "game on" if Pyongyang attacked, the pariah state's regime said it would wait and watch the next move from

N.Korea? Gold Prices More About Real Rates Than Ever
So the daily correlation data say at least... SO APPARENTLY, the latest pop and retreat in gold prices has all been about the nuclear stand-off between the US and North Korea, writes Adrian Ash at BullionVault. "Gold falls on rising risk appetite as N.Korea tensions ease," says Reuters. And fair enough. Trum

Why The Bitcoin Price Could Top $1 Million
The price of Bitcoin made a new record high above $4,300 today and is now up roughly 350% year to date or 643% over the past 12 months. If you add in the free Bitcoin Cash distributed to Bitcoin holders, the current value of Bitcoin is closer to $4,600. In this article, I will lay out the case for why a Bitcoin price of $1 million is not as outlandish as it appears at first blush. While some people are saying it could hit this level by 2030, I think we could see the Bitcoin price reach $1 milli

Robot Caused Anxiety: Blame the Robots, Even for the Election
Robots are taking our jobs says the Brookings Institute. This causes “Robot Anxiety“, but not everywhere, just in the Red states that swung the election to Trump. Robots, it turns out, are congregating densely in some places but are hardly found in others. Specifically, the map makes clear that while industrial robots are by no means everywhere, they are clustered heavily in a short list of Midwestern and Southern manufacturing states, especially the upper Midwest. More than half of the nation

Cue the corn pone Nazis. Enter, stage left. Well, what did you expect? With the various authorities in this culture incessantly applying “white privilege” noogies to the public’s skull, sooner or later they were sure to provoke a lizard-brain response from the more limbic-oriented low orders of honkeydom. Of course, you couldn’t stage-manage a more stupidly arrant provocative act in the State of Virginia, guaranteed to bring out the raging yahoos, than threatening to remove a statue of Robert E.

  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
