Chinese gold imports – Better data, lower inflows, unanswered questions
In mid-August Reuters published a story titled ”China curbs gold imports as trade war heats up” claiming that the Chinese authorities had been ”severely restricting gold imports since May” by reducing the monthly gold import quotas that are handed out to a group of Chinese and foreign banks by China’s central bank, the People’s bank of China (PBoC). The background to gold import quotas can be read here in BullionStar’s article “Chinese Cross-Border Trade Rules on Gold“. Speaking on condition of

Blame Gold
We have been talking about The Midas Paradox (2015), by Scott Sumner. July 23, 2017: The Midas Paradox (2015), by Scott Sumner. As you probably guessed from the three-word title, the book can be summarized in two words, which are: “blame gold.” This, as we have seen, is actually a relatively new notion, even if it enjoys some popularity today. The general consensus, which later (after 1950) became the Keynesian consensus, did not blame gold, or indeed, monetary policy in general, for the Great D

  Luxury Bunkers For Sale: The Wealthy Are Buying Multi-Million Dollar Bunkers With “Highest Level Of Military Grade Security”
After Donald Trump was elected president, a lot of the fears and concerns that were once so common among conservatives and libertarians, seemed to fade. That state of relief was proven to be temporary, but fears of financial collapse and social disintegration still aren’t as prevalent now as they used to be. A lot of people have let their guard down, because they think things will be alright since “their guy” is in office. But they should be concerned, because while they’ve been breathing a sigh

Why bad economic theories remain popular
Ludwig von Mises and Friedrich Hayek, the most prominent “Austrian” economists of the time, anticipated the 1929 stock market crash and correctly predicted the dire consequences of government attempts to artificially stimulate economic growth in the aftermath of the crash. John Maynard Keynes, on the other hand, was totally blindsided by the stock market crash and the economic disaster of the early 1930s. And yet, Keynes’s theories gained enormous popularity during the 1930s whereas the work of

What Happens to Gold and Silver When the Stock Market Crashes
Many investors hold gold and silver to hedge against various crises. But does this hedge hold up during stock market crashes?It’s a common assumption that gold and silver prices will fall right along with the market. And if that’s the case, wouldn’t it be better to wait to buy them until after the dust settles?Before formulating a strategy, let’s first look at price data from past stock market crashes…The Message from HistoryI looked at past stock market crashes and meas

  Hunting for Golem
As another president once remarked in a different context — LBJ speaking to a hanger full of grunts in Vietnam — “go on out there, boys, and nail that coonskin to the wall!” That was around the time the war was looking like a lost cause, with 1000 soldiers a month coming home in a box and even the Rotarians of Keokuk, Iowa, starting to doubt the official story of what exactly we thought we were doing over there. It was also, argua

Gold Jewelry’s Real Advantage: Wearable, Transportable Wealth
I vividly remember the first gold coin I ever bought.A one-ounce American gold Eagle. When I first opened the package, I was instantly struck by its beauty, shine, and refinement. And I loved the weight of it in my hand. I must’ve looked at it a hundred times over the next several days.What I did next, though, is telling: I stuck it in a safe. And there it sat, in the dark and out of sight.It was, well, anticlimactic. I loved the coin, but I couldn’t do much with it… couldn’t show it off, couldn

How Big Data And A.I. Are Transforming The Energy Industry
The oil industry, it seems, has gone all-in on digital technology, having gotten an early taste of how much various solutions can influence its cost discipline and bottom lines. Last month, Oilprice wrote how some in the digital tech field expected artificial intelligence for the oil and gas industry to pass from theory into reality this year. But there’s another segment of digital technology that is already making a splash, and the ripples from this splash will continue to multiply this year: p

Is This The Beginning Of The Next Silver Rush
This report is a PAID ADVERTISEMENT from Oilprice.com Far below the Nevada desert, past ancient mine shafts and rock-strewn caverns, there could be a fortune waiting to be made by one small company. A fortune in silver. A mine that inspired the silver rush in the 1880s, that was tapped once more in the 1960s, could again prove a boon to miners using the latest technologies to tap unexplored and unexploited mineral deposits. It could prove to be a great re-discovery in the history of silver minin

Quarterly Journal of Austrian Economics 19, no. 1 (Spring 2016): 101–111[The Midas Paradox: Financial Markets, Government Policy Shocks, and the Great Depression by Scott Sumner]The Midas Paradox is an impressive piece of scholarship, representing the magnum opus of economist Scott Sumner.

 Lately, I’ve written a lot about the alternative media purge and how Big Tech social media platforms are attempting to control the narrative, the elections, and public perception through censorship and financial blacklisting.

Surge in Volume Leads to New High for Oil Stock
Technical analyst Clive Maund reflects on how to proceed following a surge in this oil company's stock. While there was clearly an element of luck involved, our repurchase of Jericho Oil Corp. (JCO:TSX.V; JROOF:OTC) on Monday tuned out to be very well timed, as it soared 25% higher (17% on US OTC) to a new high yesterday on huge record volume. What is likely to happen now? Should you take profits? The answer is believed to be no. Although it could ba

U.S. bank derivatives books larger since rescue of Bear Stearns
At the end of January 2008, in what would turn out to be its final annual report, Bear Stearns went into some detail about its big book of derivatives. The book had a notional value of $13.4 trillion at the end of November, Bear said, up more than 50 percent from a year earlier. A two-notch downgrade in the firm's credit ratings, it added, would require it to come up with an extra $353m in collateral. This huge cluster of financial instruments -- swaps, futures, forwards, and options -- may not

Gold Miners’ Q4’17 Fundamentals
The gold miners’ stocks remain deeply out of favor, trading at prices seen when gold was half or even a quarter of current levels.  So many traders assume this small contrarian sector must be really struggling fundamentally.  But nothing could be farther from the truth!  The major gold miners’ recently-released Q4’17 results prove they are thriving.  Their languishing stock prices are the result of irrational herd sentiment. Four times a year publicly-traded co
