  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

Why The Status Quo Is Under Increasing Attack By 'Populist People Po
Protecting The Status Quo Is Failing We need to fully appreciate yet another example of what the mainstream media doesn't yet get! The "People" increasingly don't see the system working for them anymore and have as consequence become much more willing to try something very different, possibly even extreme, depending on how serious their personal blight has become! Unorthodox politicians like Donald Trump in the US, with disruptive, non-internationalist politics are increasingly emergin

s A “Strong Dollar” Good Or Bad?
(This item originally appeared at on March 17, 2017.) Recently, Harvard economist Greg Mankiw asked himself the question: “Is a ‘strong dollar’ good or bad?” Summarizing “what the president could learn from professional economists,” Mankiw, the chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors under president George W. Bush, said basically: it depends. I feel … unenlightened. Nevertheless, this is a reasona

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

Hugo Salinas Price: The World Will Hyperinflate Into A Gold Standard - Dave Kranzler
Hugo Salinas Price – website link – posted a couple of comments on Stewart Dougherty’s guest post earlier this week. I concluded that his insights needed to be shared on the front of this blog and he gave me permission to edit them together to make them easier to read for everyone. “I know my comment was complex but I wanted to condense the thoughts I have developed over three decades:” I would like to take this chance to share a few of my thoughts on this. To me it is pretty clear that

Chart Predicts a Dire Endgame for Interest Rates
This proxy for T-Bonds has quietly slipped into no man’s land with the recent breach of December’s bombed-out lows near 116.80. Even before this occurred, TLT looked like a good bet to fall to at least 111.97, the midpoint Hidden Pivot support of the pattern shown. But it would require only a breach of the July 2015 low at 114.88 to do very serious damage to the long-term chart. If the 111.97 target is hit, it would correspond to a rise in long-term interest rates to about 3.37% from a current 3

Sound Money Is Rising at the State Level: “Will Open The Door For Citizens To More Easily Use Gold And Silver In Transactions”
This report was originally published by Clint Siegner at Money Metals Exchange Inflation is the most pernicious of taxes levied by our government. Officials systematically devalue the Federal Reserve Note “dollar,” then levy capital gains taxes on assets when their dollar price rises. The “gains” are largely illusory. Rising asset prices over time reflect the fact that the dollar buys less of everything. But the tax obligations triggered by this inflation are very real. Bills calling for the el

Does Technology Destroy Jobs? If Not What Does?
In light of my posts on robots, driverless vehicles, and automation, readers keep asking: where will the jobs come from? I do not know, nor does anyone else. But does that mean jobs won’t come? Is technology destroying jobs for the first time? Daniel Lacalle on the Hedgeye blog offers this bold claim: Face It, Technology Does Not Destroy Jobs. If you read some newspapers and politicians’ comments, it seems that technology companies are a threat and robots will take your job . The idea is inter

Web Bot Data Sets Predict: ‘Chaos Period And Disruptions Throughout 2017… Secret Hyperinflation Creeping Out’
There are billions upon billions of data points being created on the internet on a daily basis. Clif High of Half Past Human has developed a “web bot” program designed to find, aggregate and assess them. In his latest report, High’s predictive linguistics data sets appear to be showing the real possibility of serious financial calamity starting over the course of the next few weeks and worsening into the the end of the year. According to a video update from SGT Report, the coming economic shock

The Rapidly Dying U.S. Economy, And The Fed’s “Hobson’s Choice”
Early Monday, it’s “one of those days” when I’m scanning my notes for a single, defining “PM bullish, everything-else-bearish” topic to focus on – but am having trouble doing so, given just their sheer breadth, and depth.  Fortunately, I found the best way to present this weekend’s data – via the time tested “East to West” format.  That said, I want to start with a domestic topic before moving to the East, given just how important it is, and how impactful it will be on our lives.  And no, it’s n

Is It All About The Donald?
While everybody’s attention is glued to The Donald on this side of the pond (for all the wrong reasons?), big things, national election things, are happening in Europe this year, starting next month. First we have the Dutch General Election on March 15, which could start the ball rolling towards a breakup of the Europe Union (EU) this year, and not a word from the mainstream media (MSM) in America, only a month away now. Then we have French Presidential Election in April, and Legislative Electio

Three Levels of Survival Skills 
The situations in which survival skills become desirable or even necessary cover a wide range of possibilities. For example, if you are in what is euphemistically referred to as the "Golden Years," and your own government decides to manipulate interest rates to the point that the fixed income you rely on to survive falls into negative territory, survival skills will quickly come in handy, but survival skills of a different sort than, say, those required to stay afloat in a failed economy such as Zimbabwe. On that front, we'll hear from a Zimbabwean a bit further on.

ames Grant Explains How A Crash In 1921 “Cured Itself” — With The Help Of Good Policy
(This item originally appeared at on February 23, 2017.)…p-of-good-policy/ James Grant’s The Forgotten Depression (2014) is a splendid account of an important period in U.S. economic history — the sharp but brief “depression” of 1921 — that is easily overshadowed by the Great Depression a few years later. It seemed to be, as Grant’s subtitle says: “The crash that cured itself.” This stands in contrast with the Great D
