  If The Banks Try To Unwind Their Silver Short, Who Are They Going To Buy From?
While there’s a lot of commentary about the large paper short position that exists in the silver market, there’s an additional factor exacerbating the situation that few have mentioned. Specifically, given the mindset of the investors that actually own silver, if the banks and hedge funds have to cover their short position, who are they going to buy the metal from? In a typical free market the price of an asset would be where there is an intersection of supply and demand. Yet consider the mindse

How quickly will the dollar collapse? 
This might seem a frivolous question, while the dollar still retains its might, and is universally accepted in preference to other, less stable fiat currencies. However, it is becoming clear, at least to independent monetary observers, that in 2018 the dollar’s primacy will be challenged by the yuan as the pricing medium for energy and other key industrial commodities. After all, the dollar’s role as the legacy trade medium is no longer appropriate, given that China’s trade is now driving the gl

A Return to Financial Sanity? Gary Christenson (03/01/2018)
Financial sanity and stability may not return, but we can protect our assets and learn from the discussion. The DOW, S&P500, NASDAQ and other markets sell at all-time highs. However, many imbalances exist within our financial world. This is not new – things have been crazy before, are now, and will be again. But to regain financial sanity we need: From “Doug Casey on the New Fed Chair ” “In an ideal world there would be some radical changes. The best thing for the US in the (famous) l

Progressive Nonsense of the Month: "Guaranteed Jobs"
Should people have a guaranteed basic income? How about a guaranteed job?"Down With Tyranny" (DWT) asks What Sounds Better To You-- Guaranteed Basic Income Or Federal Job Guarantee? That's a lot like asking: Would you rather lose your left leg or right arm to cancer? Striving for "Full Employment" DWT claims defines full employment as "everyone seeking a job gets one." "Federal jobs could provide socially useful goods and services," says the socialist website. The claim is debatable. Someo

America's Forgotten War Against the Central Banks
"Let me issue and control a nation's money supply, and I care not who makes its laws." (Mayer Amschel Rothschild, Founder of Rothschild Banking Dynasty) Many prominent Americans such as Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and Andrew Jackson have argued and fought against the central banking polices used throughout Europe. A note issued by a central bank, such as the Federal Reserve Note, is bank currency. These notes are given to the government in exchange for an interest-bearing g

STRONG GOLD IN 2018 vs NEW WORLD CURRENCY
In 1988, the UK magazine, The Economist forecast that 2018 would be the year of a new currency which they named the Phoenix. Quite a mind boggling prediction 30 years ago really, especially since 2018 in fact looks like a year when a major currency upheaval could take place. For conspiracy theorists, the Economist’s owners consist of a number of elite families and bankers including the Rothschilds. Was this a plan which has been in the making for a very long time? Or is it sheer fluke that a ma

The Connection Between Economic Crisis and Cryptocurrency
Out of all the mainstream hysteria about crypto that we have heard in 2017, one question of the utmost importance often goes unasked: why now, and what is happening to fiat currency? Bitcoin has existed since 2009.  There have been many ups and downs between then and now.  But nothing like what 2017 brought.  The total market cap of all coins came in at under ten billion USD for most of that time.  Today it is over half a trillion, and will almost definitely exceed the trillion-dollar mark somet

Inflation v Deflation – State Finances
There is a general belief, and that is all it is, that state finances fare better in an inflationary environment than a deflationary one. This perception arises from the transfer of wealth from lenders to the state through a devaluation of the currency, which occurs with monetary inflation, compared with the transfer of wealth from the state to its creditors through deflation. The effect is undoubtedly true, even though it is played down by governments, but it ignores what happens to continuing

SELL CRYPTOS – BUY GOLD
During the 2006-9 financial crisis, a collapse of the global financial system was avoided by massive money printing, guarantees and allowing banks to value assets at cost rather than market, as well as a panic lowering of interest rates from as high as 6% in the US to zero or negative. Bonds issued by eight major countries currently have negative interest rates from 1 & 2 year debt for Italy up to 15 & 30 year debt for Japan, Germany and Switzerland.

Rig For Stormy Weather - Gary Christenson
What storm? The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DOW) reached another all-time high. Interest rates in the U.S. are yielding multi-decade lows, some say multi-century lows. Trillions of dollars in global sovereign debt have negative yield and European junk bonds yield less than 10 year U.S. treasuries. “Official” unemployment is low. Borrowing is inexpensive. Things are good, so they say! I Doubt It! Do you believe the above is a fair and accurate representation of our economic world? If so,

Warning: ‘They Need The Markets To Implode’ To Usher In Cashless System
Market analyst Lynette Zang predicts in the next market meltdown, “real estate, stocks, and bonds will all crash.” When asked when this will happen, Zang says, “Enjoy your Christmas,” but in 2018, all bets are off. Greg Hunter interviewed Lynette Zang, Chief Market Strategist at ITMtrading.com, and her assessment of the 2018 economy is dire.  Zang predicts, “In 2018, I don’t think they can hold these things together. I think we will see a major market correction in 2018. When that happens, that

Hyperinflation: Much Talked About, Little Understood
Authored by Steve H. Hanke of the Johns Hopkins University. Follow him on Twitter @Steve_Hanke. Professor Liping He from Beijing Normal University has produced a most comprehensive and useful scholarly treatment of world hyperinflation. It is hot off the press. This is a welcomed addition to the literature. Indeed, Hyperinflation: A World History is destined to become a standard reference on the topic. My basis for this judgment rests on my own travails in grappling with the literature and data

The True Meaning of Bitcoin's 'Success'
In the year 301 AD, the Roman unit of barter was the denarius, which had originally been 95% pure silver when introduced by Augustus at the end of the first century BC but by the time of Diocletian's rule, it had moved to 50,000 denarii to a pound of gold. Ten year later, it took 120,000 denarii to buy a pound of gold and by 337, that figure was 20,000,000. What had occurred in a mere 400 years was that a slow and agonizing erosion in the purchasing power of the Roman currency accelerated to ful

The Hyperinflation That Was Not
Last week, we made a very controversial statement. We are happy to write the truth, and let the chips fall where they may (e.g. our thoughtful disagreement with Ted Butler about price manipulation). We can accept the flak that we get for this, so long as our position is understood. Some criticized our approach as mere technical analysis, and therefore insufficient to the task of explaining the dynamics of the gold and silver markets. But whether we quibble with this characterization of our work

Two Hyperinflations In Less Than Ten Years Did Mugabe In
Authored by Steve H. Hanke of the Johns Hopkins University. Follow him on Twitter @Steve_Hanke. Robert Mugabe’s 37-year reign of lawlessness, corruption and incompetence has just come to an end.  Mugabe is toast, thanks to a “soft coup” engineered by Emmerson Mnangagwa (aka: “the Crocodile”), who was Zimbabwe’s Vice President until he was dismissed earlier this month by Mugabe. Now, with the support of the military, the Crocodile will probably serve as Interim President until elections are held.
