Decentralization-The Future Of Monetary Value
Of all the things I’ve observed in my three decades of financial market watching, none baffles me more than the idiocy of the Charlie Brown-like “traders” that buy paper gold and silver contracts on the COMEX, only to have the “football” pulled out by “Cartel Lucy” time and time again. Albert Einstein put it best when he defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results”; and in my view, nothing is more insane than betting against a “house” run by the

  Hyperinflation or Hyperdeflation? 
The reason why QTM fails is that money is not one-dimensional. It is in fact two-dimensional. Quantity is one, and the velocity of circulation is the other dimension. Central banks control the former, and the market firmly controls the latter. As long as fair weather lasts, velocity may be ignored. But as soon as the weather grows foul, velocity returns with a vengeance. If it increases, we talk about inflation. If it decreases, we talk about deflation. In the extreme

How Will The 'GREAT DEFLATION' Impact Gold The Dollar?
By the SRSrocco Report, The coming GREAT DEFLATION will impact the value of Gold and the Dollar much differently than what most analysts are forecasting.  Unfortunately, most analysts do not understand the true underlying value of gold or the U.S. Dollar, because they base their forecasts on information that is inaccurate, flawed or imprecise. This is due to two faulty theories: monetary sciencesupply-demand market forces While some aspects of monetary science and supply and demand forces do imp

It’s All About Reality-Physical PM Style
Following up on the theme of this week’s lowest market volatility in decades; due solely to the all-out commandeering of financial markets  that cannot, and will not, last forever; consider the “dead ringer” algorithms I highlighted yesterday morning, of Wednesday’s “Dow Jones Propaganda Average,” and Thursday’s Shanghai Composite. Here’s Thursday’s “trading” of the Dow, and Friday’s of the Shanghai – which frankly, is difficult to discern from the prior day’s “action.”  I mean, how much more

Money or Wealth? 
"Gold is not money, not currency, not an investment, it is wealth." -Another _________ This is a repost from the Speakeasy: There's been a lot in the news about money lately—negative interest rates, the war on cash, the dollar shortage, Venezuela's collapsing currency—and we use that word, money, to mean so many different things that it can be confusing, so I thought it was a good time for another post on the subject. What is money, really? And what should we do to fix it? Back in 2014, I wro

Ticking, (Short-Fuse) Time Bombs For The “Challenging” Central Banking Industry
In yesterday’s “who’s more bullish for Precious Metals – Macron or Le Pen?,” I started with nearly five pages of cold, hard facts – proving across-the-board market manipulation of essentially all Western markets.  Which, for the sole purpose of prolonging a terminally ill monetary status quo – in which 1% benefit, at the expense of not just the “99%,” but future generations of “99-percenters” – has created “dotcom-like valuations in a Great Depression Era.”  Not to mention, sentiment – per yeste

The only problem with Keynesian theory is that it is completely wrong
Governments and central banks have invoked the writings of J.M. Keynes to justify the massive increases in government spending and monetary inflation that have occurred over the past 9 years. However, some of Keynes’s apologists have pointed out that the famous British economist would not have agreed with many of the policy responses for which his work has provided the intellectual justification. They point out, for example, that Keynes only advocated temporary increases in government spending a

Business cycles are credit cycles
This article gets to the heart of why central banks’ monetary policy will never succeed. The fundamental error is to regard economic cycles as originating in the private sector, when they are the consequence of fluctuations in credit.It draws on the author’s submission of evidence to the UK Parliament Treasury Committee’s enquiry into the failure of monetary policy in the wake of the 2008 crisisi.Summary It is incorrectly assumed that business cycles arise out of free markets. Instead, they are

Harry Dent Is Right About One Thing!
When I awoke this morning, I debated scripting this week’s second Audioblog – as I have a lot to say, about a great many topics.  However, given that I have as much to show you, as tell you, I decided to write instead.  Thus, today’s article will be a bit longer than usual.  But I assure you, it will be well worth your time. I decided to start with the simplest possible topic, of why Precious Metals have never been more valuable.  After that, the day’s news; culminating in an explanation of toda

The More Central Banks Print, The More Gold Silk Road Countries Will Buy 
To ride a bull market is like climbing a wall of worry. Most of the time the market seems to be consolidating or correcting. The bull market in gold fits that picture perfectly. It started in 1999 at $250 but very few got in at the very bottom. We entered the market in 2002 at $300 with a very strong belief that the world economy and financial system would have unsolvable problems. Since then we have seen a very strong bull market interrupted by totally normal corrections. Ad

Silver and Gold Guarantee Freedom 
Silver and gold are not merely valuable commodities, investments, and media of exchange. More importantly, they are key "checks and balances" in America's legal and political institutions. The fight against the use of silver and gold as money that has been waged by bankers and rogue politicians since the 1870s as to silver and the 1930s as to gold -- and will intensify as fiat currencies collapse throughout the world -- is ultimately directed against America's national independence, her constitutional government, and every common American's individual liberty and prosperity.

Selling the Golden Goose - Jeff Thomas
Venezuela is a naturally rich nation. It's ranked seventh worldwide for biodiversity and has the world's largest reserves of oil. This is a country that deserves, more than most, to thrive. However, as in all countries, it passes through economic cycles and, when on a downward curve, would-be leaders take the opportunity to claim that the "greedy rich" have sent the economy into a tailspin (which can sometimes be the case) and that the solution is to adopt a collectivist approach to gover

All Paper is STILL a short position on gold 
The gold derivatives pyramid is a vigorous free market creature. It cannot be put down with a simple declaration that the paper is no longer redeemable in gold, as governments did with currency. It is a short selling scheme that has become a trap from which few short sellers will escape

  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.

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

The Cartel’s Upcoming Silver Waterloo? – Updated (in a Big Way)! 
The reason I know Bitcoin is so early in its bull market is that there is literally no one employed to write about it on a full-time basis.  Thus, to get information on the topic, I largely have to seek out the tiny handful of “good, smart” Bitcoin people on Twitter and You-Tube.  For Precious Metals, you’d think that after a 17-year bull market – in varying degrees, depending on which currency you price them in – there’s be dozens, if not hundreds of commentators to follow; like, in say, the st

Playing Chicken with a MACK Truck
When you are playing chicken with an 18-wheeler – like a MACK Truck – you better be driving something much bigger (a gold mining truck) – or you could be hurt badly. This is the analogy I chose to make the point that the Fed’s current tightening bias will eventually work and slow down not just real economy, but the all important (to the Fed and rest of the paper game fraudsters) financialized economy as well, which may not be so easy to resurrect this time around. Because in spite of the Fed’s b

Frothy and Anti-Frothy
I just got home, just as the markets were closing with LOL, gold at exactly its 200 week moving average of $1,252/oz; and silver, at $18.20/oz a mere $0.10/oz from its own.  Trust me, the Cartel is not happy; as after yesterday’s farce of a “12:00 cap of last resort” attack; followed by an “8:00 PM algo” raid, and the roughly 800th “2:15 AM” EST capping of the last 900 trading days; let alone, as yesterday was a COMEX options expiration day; I’m sure they believed a significant PM plunge was “in

The Dramatic Peak in 1980
We’ve been looking into the fact that commodity prices have fallen a lot vs. gold since 1971. This suggests to some that gold’s value has risen. March 19, 2017: The Value of Gold Since 1971 Instead, I propose that real commodity values have fallen. There are sixty pounds in a regular bushel of wheat. This is selling now for $4.30. That’s about seven cents a pound. That sounds pretty cheap to me. Absurdly cheap, actually. I argued earlier that if gold rose in value, then crude oil must have rise
