The Hungarian Connection
Gold is the most misunderstood metal in human history, because of the economists' failure to distinguish between its dynamic and static aspects in representing values. Economists have blithely assumed all along that the value of gold is the same whether it flows freely from one hand to the next, or whether the movement of gold is obstructed, in the worst case arrested, by the government (soon to be aped by banks and individuals

The forthcoming global crisis
The global economy is now in an expansionary phase, with bank credit being increasingly available for non-financial borrowers. This is always the prelude to the crisis phase of the credit cycle.Most national economies are directly boosted by China, the important exception being America. This is confirmed by dollar weakness, which is expected to continue. The likely trigger for the crisis will be from the Eurozone, where the shift in monetary policy and the collapse in bond prices will be greates

"The conventional wisdom seems to be that the problems of the euro zone are, as economist Martin Feldstein once put it, 'the inevitable consequence of imposing a single currency on a very heterogeneous group of countries.' What this commentary gets wrong, however, is that single currencies are never the product of debates about optimal economic solutions. Instead, currencies like the U.S. dollar itself are the result of political battles, where motivated actors try to centralize power.  This h

UNPREDEDENTED GLOBAL RISK – NO ONE CARES
“Risk involves the chance an investment’s actual return will differ from the expected return. Risk includes the possibility of losing some or all of the original investment.” (Investopedia) So there we have it. Risk means that you can lose part or all of the investment.

Jan Skoyles: Suspicion endures about Bundesbank's gold repatriation
GoldCore's Jan Skoyles today reviews the continuing suspicions around the German Bundesbank's repatriation of some of its gold from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. She credits GATA and Germany's "Repatriate Our Gold" movement for causing the Bundesbank to feel a need to "build trust and confidence domestically." Skoyles' commentary is headlined "The Truth about Bundesbank Repatriation of Gold from U.S." and it's posted at GoldCore here: http://www.goldcore.com/us/gold-blog/truth-bundesbank

Gold Distributes Wealth, Central Bank Fiat Concentrates It
The fruits of increased productivity used to be distributed across society. Everyone benefited as the economy became more productive, new technologies emerged and new industries were born. Prosperity spread across society as jobs were created, poverty was reduced and a robust and thriving middle class emerged in America. Then came the 1970’s and something suddenly changed. Wages decoupled from productivity and workers no longer benefited from improvements in the economy. This trend has continued

When the United States Owned Most of the Gold on Earth
Few Americans know that, just after World War II, the United States owned most of the gold bullion on earth – about 22,000 metric tonnes. In fact by 1945, it owned over 80% of the gold held by nation-states and central banks – an impressive display of economic power. Now it owns just over 8000 metric tonnes, which repr

The Forking Paradise
A month ago, we wrote about the bitcoin fork. We described the fork: Picture a bank, the old-fashioned kind. Call it Acme (sorry, we watched too much Coyote and Road Runner growing up). A group of disgruntled employees leave. They take a copy of the book of accounts. They set up a new bank across the street, Wile E Bank. To win customers, they say if you had an account at Acme Bank, you now have an account at Wile, with the same balance! This fork came about from a disagreement among the bitcoin

  THERE JUST ISN’T ENOUGH GOLD
There are lies damned lies and Central Bank Gold statistics. Total official global gold holdings are reported to be 33,000 tonnes. That is 19% of all the gold ever produced in the world. But how can anyone ever believe any of these figures. Because no central bank ever has a public audit of all its gold holdings. Since the gold belongs to the people, they have the right to know if the gold actually exists, especially since the gold reserves are backing the currency. Why is the US gold not audite

  Does Gold Keep up in Hyperinflation ? 
Inflation is anatural consequence of loose government monetary policy. If those policies get too loose, hyperinflation can occur. As gold investors,we'd like to know if the precious metals would keep pace in this extreme scenario. Hyperinflation is an extremely rapid period of inflation, but when does inflation (which can be manageable) cross the line and become out-of-control hyperinflation? PhilipCagan, one of the very first researchers of this phenomenon, defines hyperinflation as "an inflation rate of 50% or more in a single month, "something largely inconceivable to the average investor.
