The Return of Sound Money
On Sunday evening, August 15, 1971, President Nixon told the American people the U.S. would “suspend temporarily the convertibility of the dollar into gold or other reserve assets” as a means of defending the dollar against “the speculators.”  This was one part of his New Economic Policy, a phrase borrowed from communist Vladimir Lenin, which included a 90-day freeze on prices and wages, and a 10 percent tax on imports.  Gary North points out that Barron’s editor Robert Bleiberg, in a 1974 speec

  August 15, 1971: Inflation Unleashed 
The general public, the media and most financial observers were largely unaware of the momentous event that took place on August 15, 1971. However, the implications of that event have had an enormous impact on global financial conditions ever since. On that date, US President Richard Nixon “closed the gold window”. In essence, this meant the US would no longer honour the Bretton Woods Agreement of 1944, which

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

Gold Prices Drop $10 ...
GOLD PRICES slipped $10 per ounce from last week's 2-month highs on Monday morning in London as the US Dollar rallied and global stock markets rose on what analysts and pundits called a retreat in nuclear tensions between the US and North Korea, writes Steffen Grosshauser at BullionVault. Crypto-currency Bitcoin meantime spiked to new all-time record highs above $4000, doubling inside 1 month after dropping by one-third

Wall Street Journal still isn't ready to question central banking
The Wall Street Journal's feeble attempt this week to acknowledge the issue of gold market rigging by the U.S. government at least landed on the newspaper's front page today. You can see its display at the lower left side of the page here: http://www.gata.org/files/WallStreetJournalFrontPage-08-11-2017.jpg The report signifies that the situation with gold has become crazy enough that it now can be discussed in polite company. The report also signifies that no one who wants to maintain respectabi

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. It's on video: http://www.gata.org/node/16341 Over the last

  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

Central Banks Are Hiding the True Price of Risk
If you invest your money, you will have to deal with numerous risks. For instance, if you buy a bond, you run the risk of the borrower defaulting or being repaid with debased money. As a stock investor, you face the risk that the company's business model will not live up to expectations, or that it, at the extreme, will go bankrupt. In an unhampered financial market, prices are formed for these and other risk factors.For instance, a bond with a high default risk will typically carry a high yield

Oh that “Elusive” Inflation!
New York Fed President, William Dudley, says 2% inflation target will remain elusive even if price pressures pick up. Elusive means “6-10 months”. Inflation is not likely to reach the Federal Reserve’s 2% annual target this year even if monthly data begins to pick up as expected, said William Dudley, president of the New York Fed, on Thursday. “I do think inflation to start to move higher in the medium term, but probably not get all the way back to sort of 2% on a year-on-year basis,” Dudley s

“What, Me Worry?” Markets - Gary Christenson
Mad Magazine introduced Alfred E. Neuman (What, Me Worry?) in the 1950s. He did NOT become a central banker. That is “fake news.” Global central banks, including the Federal Reserve, created “What, Me Worry?” markets after the 2008 crash. There has been little worry since the November election, until now. But the market worry level may have increased. Changes between highs and lows in two days – until time of this writing: Date Aug. 8 Aug. 10 DOW

Gold Prices Spike on US Inflation Miss, Highest Friday Finish Since Trump Elected Amid N.Korea Nuclear Stand-Off
GOLD PRICES spiked and then retreated Friday afternoon in London but matched their highest weekly close since before Donald Trump was elected US president last November as the odds of a Federal Reserve rate-hike in September were slashed to zero after July's consumer-price inflation data came in below analyst forecasts. With Trump's North Korea nuclear stand-off continuing, gold bullion prices this week recorded their sharpest gain since early F

  Battle of the Behemoths 
As the empire deliquesces into a fetid slurry of economic failure, we stand ankle deep in the rising swamp waters witnessing the futile battle of the giants, Walmart and Amazon. Neil Howe, co-author of The Fourth Turning, wrote this week that “[t]he Amazon-Walmart rivalry will determine the future of retail.” Well, it seems that way, perhaps, and I understand why a lot of people would imagine it, but I would draw some different conclusions. What we’re seeing is more like the battle between Godzi

Producer Prices Unexpectedly Decline
The Producer Price Index (PPI) for final goods unexpectedly declined in July. The PPI fell 0.1% as did the core PPI which excludes food and energy. THe Econoday consensus expected a 0.1% gain. Lack of inflation has been the issue this year but July’s producer price report raises new concerns, that is disinflation. Headline prices fell an unexpected 0.1 percent with the less food & energy reading also at minus 0.1 percent and the less food, energy & trade services no better than unchanged. Year-

  The Nightmare German Inflation 
Hey, Mr. Chairman, in case you haven't noticed, the Federal Reserve already has a goodly supply of oxen! My father was fond of relating a story about a professor lecturing on geography. A short fellow, he was extolling the agriculture of Switzerland. "In our country oxen are not even as tall as I am. In some countries you see oxen just as tall as myself. But, believe it or not, on the fat pastures of Switzerland there are even greater oxen than myself". For emphasis the good professor stood on his tiptoes and stretched his hand upwards above his head. "We don't believe so!" - shouted someone from the back benches of the lecture theater.

U.S. producer prices record biggest drop in 11 months
Reuters/Lucia Mutikani/08-10-17 U.S. producer prices unexpectedly fell in July, recording their biggest drop in nearly a year and pointing to a further moderation in inflation that could delay a Federal Reserve interest rate increase. …Though the link between the PPI and the consumer price index has weakened, last month’s drop in producer prices could worry Fed officials who have long argued that the moderation in inflation was temporary. Fed Chair Janet Yellen told lawmakers last month that “so

Dumb And Dumber: Money Keeps Pouring In - John Rubino
Someday, stock, bond and real estate valuations will matter again. And the mechanism by which this return to sanity is achieved will probably be the torrent of money now flowing in from people who, for various reasons, don’t care about (or understand) the prices they’re paying. Millennials, for instance, seem to have reached the “beginners’ mistakes” phase of their financial lives. They’re major buyers of recreational vehicles – see The Perfect Crash Indicator Is Flashing Red — and are

Cryptocurrencies – The Next Level of Power and Control Developed by The NSA - Rory Hall
In November 2013 we learned that bitcoin was built on technology the NSA had developed. The original source was deleted from an interview conducted that month and, unfortunately, is now lost to history – it doesn’t change the facts. Now we learn that information was 100% spot on correct. The NSA developed blockchain technology and released the information in a white paper that has been uncovered by Ken Schortgen, Jr., The Daily Economist. This confirms what has been reported by very few p
