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

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.

Rate Hike Cycles vs. the US Dollar: Rate Hikes Bad for Gold?
Here are two different looks at Fed rate hikes since Volcker. The charts are the same, but one presentation is a lot funnier than the other. the above image from the New York Times article A History of Fed Leaders and Interest Rates. Here’s an alternative view courtesy of @HedgeEye. Let’s take the fist chart and see what correlations exist between rate hikes and the US dollar index. Rate Hike Cycle vs. the US Dollar Conventional wisdom suggests rate hikes will support the US dollar. US Dolla

Cost Push Inflation
The reason we are looking at this today is because of how the Trump Bump is causing input prices to jump higher already, evidenced in the most recent (December) US ISM numbers, showing the biggest jump since 2011. And this trend will most likely continue with the excitement Trump has created with ‘making America great again’, where even foreign governments are joining the party, which will continue to strengthen employment conditions (already apparent), raising the specter of rapidly rising cost

  Inflation Spikes in 2017, Supporting Gold Prices Despite Increased Odds of March Rate Hike
Inflation is coming. In fact, inflation rose at the fastest pace in four years during January. Consumer prices surged 0.6% in January from December, double the consensus forecast of a 0.3% rise. This marks the sharpest monthly increase since February 2013, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

  Gold And Silver Stocks – The Bargain Of The Century
Buy high and sell low, that is the mantra of many stock market investors. When a stock or a market reaches a new high the average investor turns even more bullish. That is also the point when the media talk about it and it becomes headline news. This is now the situation for many stock markets worldwide. US, UK, and many European markets are now at all time highs. But the picture is not rosy everywhere. The Chinese market is 40% lower than the 2015 highs and the French, Italian and Spanish marke

Gini and monetary policy
Or how central bankers are ducking the wealth transfer issueCentral banks must be increasingly aware that critics of monetary policy are getting some traction in their arguments, that not only have monetary policies failed in their objectives, but they are creating counterproductive economic distortions as well. Chief among these is the transfer of wealth that comes with monetary debasement. Central bankers have always glossed over this issue, which if made to stick would undermine monetary poli

If A Nuclear Bomb Destroyed Europe, Part IV
Last week, former Goldman Sachs banker and current Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said “in many respects, we’re coming to the last seconds of central bankers’ 15 minutes of fame…which is a good thing.”  Which I couldn’t agree with more, despite said “15 minutes” lasting more than 100 years; or at the least, the 46 years since the U.S. reneged on the Bretton Woods Agreement by unilaterally abandoning the gold standard; with nary a peep of protest from fellow signatories; all of whom were co
