“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

Benjamin Constant
On the Liberty of the Ancients Compared with that of the Moderns
"He loved liberty as other men love power," was the judgment passed on Benjamin Constant by a 19th-century admirer.His great public concern, all throughout his adult life, was the attainment of a free society, especially for his adopted country, France; and if a (by no means uncritical) French commentator exaggera

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. The economy, which has the highest debt burden in the bloc at 180 per cent, also suffered a sharp growth setback in the last three m

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

Gold Prices +3% as Fed Rate Rise Lags Inflation, Dollar Falls, Greek Debt Deadlines Loom
GOLD PRICES rose further Thursday in London, gaining almost 3% in Dollar terms since the Federal Reserve raised US interest rates as expected yesterday, and also raised its forecast for interest-rate hikes ahead. Continuing to re-invest the central bank's $4 trillion QE holdings of US Treasury bonds as they mature, the Fed's Open Market Committee now sees its key rate ending 2017 no lower than 1.4% versus 1.1% at the December meeting.

Denninger Warns On Coming Collapse: “Exactly How This Thing Detonates and Who Dies Is Very Hard To Figure Out”
On Monday House Majority leader Paul Ryan warned that if his health care plan fails to pass then the Obamacare system will collapse. It’s a sentiment that The Market Ticker founder Karl Denninger has shared for years, citing basic arithmetic that shows the Affordable Care Act passed in 2009 simply cannot be sustained. But before you get excited about the possible repeal of current laws that are to be replaced by Ryan’s new GOP bill, consider that the new bill is destined to fail for the very sam

1,000% Returns? Sure, When PIIGS Fly! - by Michael Carino - Greenwich Endeavors
The world is filled with intelligent people in finance.  Unfortunately, being intelligent doesn’t always mean you are smart.  To make sound investments, you need to be looking forward and constantly coming to rational conclusions.  One has to avoid sheltering oneself in a herd of backward focused investors taking comfort in performing in line with the masses.  Patting yourself on the back as all markets are trending higher and wallowing in ignorant pity as markets drop lower saying “who would ha

When This All Blows Up...
This report marks the end of a series of three big trains of thought. The first explained how we’re living through the Mother Of All Financial Bubbles. The next detailed the Great Wealth Transfer that is now underway, siphoning our wealth into the pockets of an elite few. This concluding report predicts how these deleterious and unsustainable trends will inevitably ‘resolve’ (which is a pleasant way of saying ‘blow up’.) The Ka-POOM Theory In terms how this will all end, we favor the scenario pu

Massive Cascade of Eurozone Defaults Coming Up
As soon as any major country exits the Eurozone (and possibly some lesser ones), a cascade of defaults, unparalleled in history will commence. The only way to stop such a cascade would be if the ECB guaranteed (printed) enough euros to cover losses. Meanwhile, the already high Eurozone default risk keeps rising.

Silver Very Undervalued from Historical Perpective of Ancient Greece
– What wages in ancient Athens can tell us about the silver price today – Wages paid in silver in ancient Athens compared to wages today – Silver massively undervalued compared to the past few thousand years The cost of building the Parthenon was 469 silver talents, or about £5.6m. by Dominic Frisby Today we look at the wages paid to oarsmen on warships in ancient Athens in 450BC. I bet you’ve never read a Money Morning that began like that before. Why on earth would I want to do such a thing?

How Technology, And Incompetence, Destroyed The World
In this weekend’s “same as it ever was – Bitcoin, gold, and a rapidly changing world,” I expressed my staunch disagreement with Peter Schiff’s views about Bitcoin – whilst simultaneously, commending him for being the best political and economic analyst in the blogosphere; which yesterday, was demonstrated in this must listen analysis of the Trump Administration’s comically pathetic “Trumpcare” proposal.  And I do mean must listen – so you can truly understand just how dysfunctional, and destruct

BIS Blames ECB for Rising Target2 Imbalances: Fear of Default
In the latest BIS Quarterly Review, the BIS points a finger at the ECB for rising Target2 imbalances. That sounds highly accusatory, but the BIS also claims this is a “benign by-product of the decentralized implementation of the asset purchase program (APP) rather than as a sign of renewed capital flight.” I strongly disagree that any of this is “benign” unless and until someone can tell me precisely how Italy, Spain, Greece, etc., are supposed to pay back the claims. From the BIS (this is comp

Fear Mongering, F.U.D.-ing And Fleecing-Rinse And Repeat, Until The Cartel’s Well Runs Dry
Today, we’re going to start in Europe – where the world’s second largest; and soon-to-be-defunct; currency is again plunging, as the equivalent of political and economic “nuclear bombs” are serially crashing.  In other words, the dollar – i.e., the meaningless “dollar index”; which matters not a whit to European gold investors, who are patting themselves on the back for having had the foresight to have invest in history’s best inflation hedge.  Thehe price of gold in Euros is just 16% from its a

When The Tidal Wave Hits, Part I - Jeff Nielson
Disaster is nearly upon us. This has been a regular theme in these commentaries for several years. Increasingly, however, these warnings draw reactions of apathy rather than alarm. The fact that our house-of-cards economies (and societies) have not already unraveled does not mean that this was a false alarm. It means that disaster has gotten much more imminent. When straight discourse fails to convey a message, writers typically resort to a metaphor. But which one? The phrase “the perfect s

Central banks and gold 
The very near future is likely to see a sea-change in central bankers’ attitude to the gold allocation in their reserves. The failure of G20 monetary policy since the financial crisis is causing a general rethink, which may eventually lead to a new policy direction.For now, that is undecided, beyond a growing acceptance that today’s monetary policy does not work and the assumptions of recent decades, that gold as money should be phased out, might have been a mistake.The idea, that Western centra

Why The Cartel Is So (Rightfully) Terrified 
No event defines how rapidly America’s “leadership” has declined, then last night’s Academy Awards catastrophe.  At which, one of its most prestigious accounting firms accidentally handed Warren Beatty the wrong “Best Picture” envelope, causing it to initially be awarded to the wrong movie.  Yes, it was a “victimless crime” – but at a time when America’s accounting credibility is at an all-time low, it only adds to the perception of the incompetence that makes it unlikely to become “great again”

"And this to the credit of the Trump folk is something that they get that the Democrats do not want to even acknowledge. They have created this neo-liberal system...where it is individually rational for any firm to rip the other guy's face off for a profit. But what if we all end up faceless? Everybody loses.
