  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.

  Russia Did It!
This past week saw an enormous outpouring of respect and admiration for Stephen Hawking upon his passing. In contrast to his frail health in life, his contributions to our understanding of the universe were prodigious and robust. Hawking's elevation of rational and intellectual truth above all else, even his failing body, inspired a generation of science lovers. Perhaps, too, he represented something in desperately short supply in today's world: intellectual integrity. Our lives are now fraught

Inflation And Alan Greenspan 
Alan Greenspan 1967 "As the supply of money increases relative to the supply of tangible assets in the economy, prices must eventually rise. In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. There is no safe store of value". Alan Greenspan 1981 "A return to a gold standard (would be) a basic change in our economic processes. A gold-based monetary system will necessarily prevent fiscal imprudence. Once achieved, the discipline of the gold standard would surely reinforce anti-inflation policies, and make it far more difficult to resume financial profligacy".

Is Tether a Scam That Will Crash the Bitcoin Price by 80
Tether is a “stablecoin” which aims to maintain a value of one US dollar per tether. It it connected to Bitfinex and created by officers from the company, one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world. Tether Limited claims that Tether is backed by reserves of U.S. dollars on a one-to-one basis. But some are claiming that Tether is not backed by dollars and is created out of thin air in order to pump the price of Bitcoin higher. They claim that Tether is a scam that will implode and c

Ominous Musings on America – 2018
Decay and despotism invade our lives today like gangrene creeps up the limbs of a wounded soldier in the festering fields of war. Our Washington pols swagger through fulsome milieus of political putrescence and graft. Establishment pundits spew hysterical falsehoods on a daily basis. FOMC bureaucrats print fake money like mountebanks spin shell games to carnival dupes. Special counsel shysters conduct corrupted investigations to overturn the rightful will of the people.

Cryptocurrency Developments So Far in 2018
The first two weeks of 2018 have been quite eventful for the cryptocurrency community.  There have been a great many developments in terms of the regulatory environment.  Also, a new scaling solution for the second biggest coin by market cap may be leading to its meteoric rise over the past year. Increased legislation and regulation One likely reason why crypto, in general, has been pumping lately has to do with increased regulatory clarity.  There have been statements made by governments and fi

Oil Market Update
The paradoxical technical situation for oil that we highlighted in the last update has continued – and has gotten even more extreme. In that update we concluded that oil’s very bullish volume indicators pointed to its continuing to advance, despite COT and Hedgers charts and sentiment indicators showing extremes that would normally call for a reversal to the downside, and that is what has happened. The reason? – Iran – it looked like the United States and Israel, and possibly client state Saudi

Who the hell does the grand mufti think he is -- a central banker
From The Times if Israel, Jerusalem Tuesday, January 2, 2018 Egypt's top Muslim cleric on Monday called for a ban on bitcoin, saying the digital currency is "forbidden" by Islam. ... Noting that the cryptocurrency is unregulated, Allam said the "currency's risk as well as its high profit potential undermine Egypt's ability to maintain and stabilize its own currency." He also said the digital currency could have a "negative effect on its dealers' legal safety, possibly due to failure to publicly

Forecast 2018 — What Could Go Wrong 
Markets If you take your cues from Consensus Trance Central — the cable news networks, The New York Times, WashPost, and HuffPo — Trump is all that ails this foundering empire. Well, Trump and Russia, since the Golden Golem of Greatness is in league with Vladimir Putin to loot the world, or something like that. Since I believe that the financial system is at the heart of today’s meta-question (What Could Go Wrong?), it would be perhaps more to the point to ask: what has held this matrix of racke

The First 30 Years of the Mises Institute, and the Future

Spot Gold Halves Post-2014 Recovery vs. Euro Ahead of Fed, ECB, BoE Decisions as Middle East Tensions Worsen
SPOT GOLD prices failed to hold a 0.4% overnight rally from new 5-month lows in London on Tuesday, slipping back as world stock markets rose again ahead of tomorrow's key US Fed decision on Dollar interest rates amid worsening tensions in the Middle East. Edging back towards $1241 per ounce today, the price of gold bullion for immediate delivery has now halved the 16% gains for 2017 reached at early September's 12-month peak.

Price of Gold Bars Rallies with 'Tail Risks' as ETFs Expand, China Fears US-N.Korea Strike, Trumps Moves Israel Embassy
GOLD BARS rallied from yesterday's 9-week low in Asian and London trade Tuesday as global equities slipped with commodity prices amid rising tensions over Washington's policies in both the Middle East and towards rogue state North Korea.

Gold Price Slips Near 'Significant Support' as World Warns Trump on Israel Embassy, Brexit Talks Stall
GOLD PRICES slipped near 1-month lows against a rising US Dollar in London trade on Tuesday, drifting back to $1273 per ounce as world stock markets followed Wall Street lower after Monday's drop.

  What Now 
“Contact with Russians.” Grown men and women, doubling and re-doubling down on a political fantasy, repeat this prayer hour after hour on the cable channels and Web waves as if trying to exorcise a nation possessed by the unholy hosts of Hell. But such vicars of the news as Wolf Blitzer, Rachel Maddow, Chuck Todd, and Dean Baquet (of The New York Times) only shove the country closer to a cliff of constitutional crisis.

  What Now 
It must be exciting to wake up on a gilded bed somewhere in Riyadh and realize that you are Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, mover and shaker of Middle East order. Actually, exciting just to have woken up at all. Perhaps Prince MBS checks to make sure that there aren’t seventy-two virgins in the room before he rises to prayers, state business, and the prospect of World War Three. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) has been a giant gasoline bomb waiting to explode for decades. It occupies o

If The Saudi Arabia Situation Doesn't Worry You, You're Not Paying Attention
While turbulent during the best of times, gigantic waves of change are now sweeping across the Middle East. The magnitude is such that the impact on the global price of oil, as well as world markets, is likely to be enormous. A dramatic geo-political realignment by Saudi Arabia is in full swing this month. It’s upending many decades of established strategic relationships among the world's superpowers and, in particular, is throwing the Middle East into turmoil. So much is currently in flux, espe

Oil for gold – the real story
Following an article in the Nikkei Asia Review, which reported China will shortly introduce an oil futures contract priced in yuan, there has been some confusion about what it means. The article pointed out that in combination with existing gold futures priced in yuan, an oil exporter to China contracting to accept yuan could use these two futures contracts to take delivery of physical gold in payment for oil.I was quoted in that article as follows:"It is a mechanism which is likely to appeal to
