Gold climbs near a 3-week high as dollar drops
MarketWatch/Myra P. Saefong & Mark DeCambre/03-21-17 Gold prices headed higher Tuesday, as the U.S. dollar declined, especially against the euro, as traders eyed the presidential race in France and the U.K. prepared its exit from the European Union. “The political uncertainties over in Europe around French elections and Brexit are going to provide a lot of tailwinds for the gold rally,” said Naeem Aslam, chief market analyst at Think Markets.

PiMBEEB-A-LOOZA
This is the first week I can remember, in which every day, I awoke to so many “horrible headlines,” I couldn’t determine which to focus on.  Which is why, articles like yesterday’s “all out political, economic, and financial war” have been commonplace; in which, I comment on myriad topics, from the four corners of the planet; which invariably, are tied to the same root cause.  I.e., the catastrophic, terminal phase of history’s largest, most destructive fiat Ponzi scheme. Consequently, I’m creat

Understanding Money Creation and the Trade Balance
According to conventional analysis, a key factor in exchange rate determination is the state of the balance of payments. It is held that as long as the US continues to run a large trade account deficit, which stood at $48.5 billion in January 2017, this is likely to keep pressure on the US dollar exchange rate against other currencies.Following this logic, an increase in imports gives rise to an increase in a demand for foreign currency. To obtain the foreign currency importers will sell the dom

March 23rd-The End Of “Trump-Flation”?
Like the Miles Franklin Blog itself, this week’s articles have focused as much on the quantity of “PM-bullish, everything-else-bearish” events, as the quality.  As frankly, even I have been overwhelmed lately – as the terminal stage of history’s largest, most destructive fiat Ponzi races through its cancerous terminal stage, en route to the spectacular, world-changing event it was destined to produce when it was launched on August 15th, 1971.  I.e. when America, and it’s “Demo-publican” Presiden

Eurogroup Finance President Accuses Southern Europe of “Spending Money on Booze and Women then Begging for Help”
Jeroen Dijsselbloem, Dutch finance minister and president of the Eurogroup finance ministers, is in hot water today over derogatory statements regarding peripheral Europe. This compounds Dijsselbloem’s already significant problems as his party was trounced in the recent Dutch elections. Spain and Portugal now seek his ouster in addition to an apology. Please consider Protests Mount Over EU Dealmaker’s ‘Booze and Women’ Slur. Jeroen Dijsselbloem, a key euro area dealmaker, is facing calls to re

Italy Falls Out of Love With Euro: Beppe Grillo on the Rise Recent polls for
Recent polls for Italian politicians supporting the eurozone and EU have collapsed. Pro-Europe polls are highly likely to get worse as a  further splintering of Matteo Renzi’s PD party takes place. It is not out of question for Beppe Grillo’s eurosceptic Five Star Movement (M5S) party to achieve an absolute majority in the next election. However, please note that 40% is the threshold for a “majority”. The Financial Times reports Italy is Falling Out of Love with Europe. Foreigners often underes

“Us” Against The World
This just isn’t fair!  As every time the weekend passes, I wake up Monday with a gargantuan amount of “horrible headlines” to process (or, as I have recently deemed them, “PM bullish, everything-else bearish); which I dutifully gather every second of the day, be it Saturday, Sunday, or holiday.  In other words, the Miles Franklin Blog tirelessly works 24/7, to give you the best, and most actionable information available. In this particular case, there are literally four topics worthy of stand-al

Why The Status Quo Is Under Increasing Attack By 'Populist People Po
Protecting The Status Quo Is Failing We need to fully appreciate yet another example of what the mainstream media doesn't yet get! The "People" increasingly don't see the system working for them anymore and have as consequence become much more willing to try something very different, possibly even extreme, depending on how serious their personal blight has become! Unorthodox politicians like Donald Trump in the US, with disruptive, non-internationalist politics are increasingly emergin

US Pressures IMF to Walk Away From Greece: Déjà Vu, All Over Again
Greece is in reverse. Greek Unemployment Rose to 23.1%, GDP contracted 1.2% last quarter, and now the US is pressuring the IMF to back away from continued bailouts. 4th “Bailout” Needed Greece’s labor market seems immune to the broader improvements in jobs growth seen elsewhere in Europe where average unemployment has now fallen to a four-year low of 9.8 percent.

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 IDES OF MARCH – GOLD AT $14,463 and SILVER AT $669
THE IDES OF MARCH – GOLD AT $14,463 and SILVER AT $669 By Egon von Greyerz In the Roman calendar, the Ides of March was the same as March 15th in today’s calendar. This date was not significant until Julius Caesar was assassinated on 15 March 44BC. Shakespeare then coined the phrase “Beware of the Ides of March” in his Julius Caesar work. So will March 15, 2017 be significant. We will soon know. There are some noteworthy events taking place on March 15. The debt ceiling must be reset that day a

You Must See These Mind-Boggling Photos of 10,000 Illegal Firearms Seized by Spanish Police
Have you ever seen a deactivated firearm and thought to yourself, “I wonder if I can restore that piece to its former glory?” Obviously that’s super illegal in pretty much every country, which is why you probably quickly disregarded that fantasy. Of course, there are always people who are willing to take that risk, especially if they can make a lot of money doing it. It’s a fairly common practice among arms dealers in the black market. A deactivated firearm is often just a few modifications away
