  Hyperinflation around the Globe 
Angola (1991-1999) Angola went through the worst inflation from 1991 to 1995. In early 1991, the highest denomination was 50,000 kwanzas. By 1994, it was 500,000 kwanzas. In the 1995 currency reform, 1 kwanza reajustado was exchanged for 1,000 kwanzas. The highest denomination in 1995 was 5,000,000 kwanzas reajustados. In the 1999 currency reform, 1 new kwanza was exchanged for 1,000,000 kwanzas reajustados. The overall impact of hyperinflation: 1 new kwanza = 1,000,000,000 pre-1991 kwanzas.

Confusion Reigns. . .
A few days ago, I postulated that despite the seasonal weakness most were anticipating in May and despite the sharp increase in Commercial shorting that was still below 2016 levels, the precious metals would buck conventional wisdom and advance further into even greater degrees of overbought status. On Tuesday morning, after watching 22,000 contracts in June Gold completely wipe out every bid down to $1,280.60, causing a sympathetic crash in silver down to $18.06, I was not only ready to break

Gold Bullion Slips Again from 'MAJOR' Hurdle of 2011 Downtrend as IMF Raises Global GDP Forecasts
GOLD BULLION priced in Dollars retreated on Wednesday from its second attempt in 3 days to break the 6-year downtrend starting at 2011's record peak, as world stock markets and commodities steadied after yesterday's drop amid a higher outlook for world economic growth from the IMF. Analysts at Germany's Commerzbank last week called the $1291 level, where gold's 2011 downtrend now comes in, "MAJOR resistance".

  The Story of Gold Money, Past, Present and Future, by Edwin Walter Kemmerer
There aren’t a lot of good books about the gold standard — the monetary system of the world until 1971 — after WWI. There aren’t a lot before WWI either, but it starts to get pretty bad after 1920. Ralph Hawtrey’s books have some merits, but they also have too many errors to serve as a definitive source. Gold and the Gold Standard: The Story of Gold Money, Past, Present and Future (1944) is something of an exception to this pattern. Edwin Walter Kemmerer was a professor at Princeton. Wikipedia o

  GOLD IS PROTECTION AGAINST DAMNED LIES AND WAR
There are lies, damned lies and news, to paraphrase British Prime Minister Disraeli who said: “There are lies, damned lies and statistics. Today we are fed with lies ubiquitously in the form of news and most people who just follow conventional media are totally unaware of the truth. Because the truth is not spoken by many today: Politicians lie to mislead and indoctrinate the people. Governments put out false economic information to serve their purpose, like unemployment or

Death Of A Presidency, An Empire, And A Monetary System
I’m 46 years old, and grew up in New York; and thus, know a lot about Donald Trump.  Consequently, if at any time before last summer, you told me he’d one day be President, I would have laughed until I cried.  After all, a man famous for bad marriages; a big, insulting mouth; and massively overleveraged investments in some of the worst imaginable businesses – from Atlantic City casinos, to the United States Football League – was as far from what I’d consider “Presidential material” as I could im

Marine Le Pen-The Potential Brexit Times 100
You want drama. ..and TRUTH?  Well, let’s start with this amazing, must see, three-minute 2009 clip from Ron Paul; or, as I deemed him five years ago, “America’s greatest man.”  Given what I discussed in Friday’s “did America just start World War III”; and yesterday’s “beating of the drums”; it couldn’t be more appropriate – as in it, he asks “what if” America’s foreign policy is misguided; and “what if” it continues down the horrifying road it appears dead set on taking. At this point, I have l

Gold Price Jumps Through 'Resistance' as Trump Says US Will Go Alone vs. N.Korea, G7 Rebukes UK Over Russia
GOLD PRICES rose above what analysts called 'technical resistance' to break $1260 per ounce Tuesday afternoon in London as Donald Trump's switch in foreign policy against Syria and North Korea again made headlines worldwide. After the unilateral US action against Syria's Assad regime last week, President Trump said he will "solve" the rogue Asian state and its nuclear-weapons ambitions with or without China's help.

Gold Standard Challenges
Scattered recent analysis has centered upon the Gold Standard and its viability within the global financial system. The topic is certainly very blurred and at times confusing. Consider a recent article by a competent analyst Charles Hugh Smith of the site OfTwoMinds on the practicality of gold used as a standard. The article is entitled “The Problem With Gold-Backed Currencies” (which is found HERE and also on Lew Rockwell site HERE). He makes several points, many good ones. In the Jackass opini

Naked Emperors, For The Entire World To See
Yesterday, I wrote that the brief “eye” of the relentless PiMBEEB  storm would likely pass by the time you read my “disturbing trends” article.  Which it certainly did – and then some – when the “naked emperors” known as the Federal Open Market Committee published the “minutes” of their Ides of March meeting.  Perhaps, an even more powerful “storm” will hit today, when Donald Trump meets with Chinese Premiere Xi Jinping in a potentially historic summit – that Trump last week “warned” of, in stat

The decline and fall of the EU
This article identifies the headwinds faced by the EU in the wake of Brexit.Without the UK, not only does the EU lose much of its importance on the world stage, but the Commission’s budget is left with an enormous hole. That is the decline. The fall is well under way, with capital flight significantly worse than generally realised, as a proper understanding of TARGET2 imbalances shows. Not only is the ECB running out of options, but without major support from Germany, France and Italy, Brussels

Germany to Kill Free Speech?
“German Justice Minister Heiko Maas said that the companies offering such online platforms are responsible for removing hateful content. He said the new bill would not restrict the freedom of expression, but intervene only when criminal hatred or intentionally false news are posted.” What is “criminal hatred”? Clearly what German authorities mean is not just incitement to violence, but opposition to their suicidal policies regarding Muslim migration: “the issue” of this online censorship “has co

The Daily Market Report: Gold Rebounds Above $1250
USAGOLD/Peter A. Grant/04-03-17 Gold has rebounded to trade back above the $1250 level, helped by ongoing concerns about the underlying health of the U.S. economy and the resulting risk aversion. Political uncertainty, both in the U.S. and Europe, along with rising geopolitical tensions are contributing factors as well. We made note of this in this morning’s Snapshot, but a Zerohedge article has a nice chart from Bloomberg that shows the total return performance of major global financial assets
