An Important Time of Year
Market turns and bubble peaks often occur in December and January. Purpose of this article:    Recognize that most U.S. stock indices and individual stocks have risen into their bubble zones. Bubbles pop! Do your own due diligence, but think about moving capital out of dangerous markets and into something currently undervalued, unloved and unappreciated. Silver and gold are in the early stages of what could become a roaring bull market. They have a superior risk to reward profile. Bubbles feel

Speculating Our Way to Prosperity
We have been discussing the consumption of capital. Last week, for example, we concluded with: “We see people eating more of the seed corn.” Morally, socialism is the enslavement of man to man. If you create something, they want not just to take it from you, but to render you unable to create anything else. They declare that the ideal is “from each according to his ability.” This is about the most perfect expression of envy ever put into words. By envy, we mean the hatred of the good for being t

Why Copper Is a Critical Metal: Mickey Fulp 
Copper is often referred to as "Dr. Copper," the metal with a Ph.D. in economics. Yet most analysts don't view it as a critical metal. In this interview with The Critical Metals Report, Mickey Fulp, author of The Mercenary Geologist, gives his thoughts on why the experts are wrong and why copper should be considered a critical metal.

GLD Gold Investment Goes AWOL as 'Short Covering' Sees Bullion Jump vs. Sinking Dollar
GOLD INVESTMENT bars pushed their New Year 2018 gains to 2.3% versus a falling Dollar in London trade Friday, rising even as world stock markets extended yesterday's fresh record highs in US equities. Large bullion bars traded by wholesalers and investment dealers reached new 4-month highs at $1332 per ounce before edging back after new data said US inflation in consumer prices held firmer than expected in December.

Blockchain Tech Is Transforming The Energy Industry
Blockchain is more than just a buzzword. It truly has the potential to turn entire industries on their heads. In many ways, the energy sector has been slow to adopt this new tech, but things are finally beginning to change. As ‘Big Energy’ begins to catch up, many market leaders and investors are looking towards blockchain for a more transparent and efficient energy future. Just one of these capabilities would be to enable the energy industry to adopt a peer-to-peer trading model, completely rev

Gold Prices Jump with Yen, Shrug Off Bond Yields, on China-US Bonds Rumor
GOLD PRICES jumped 1.2% against a plunging Dollar in London trade Wednesday morning, setting the highest bullion-market benchmark in 4 months as financial markets whipped on rumors that China may stop buying more US government debt for its huge foreign currency reserves. Bloomberg News says officials running China's $3.14 trillion of central-bank reserves have "recommended" reducing or pausing the purchase of US Treasury bonds, blam

2018: The Most Golden Year
The world’s most awesome asset is taking the world gold community into the new year with grand style. Gold has stunned most analysts and roared to my $1310 target price without missing a heartbeat! The bull wedge pattern is both majestic and powerful. The ultimate price target of this pattern is a minimum price of $1350 and arguably as high as $1490. When “QE to Infinity” and the death of the American economy was accepted as “the new normal” in both the gold and mainstream communities, I argue

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

Debt to GDP: Only 4 Major Countries Worse Off Than the US
Of major nations, only Japan, Greece, Italy, and Portugal have debt-to-GDP ratios higher than the US. With the new tax overhaul, U.S. government debt will rise by one to two trillion dollars over the next decade. I view that assessment as majorly optimistic as it assumes no recession and unlikely growth. Citing IMF statistics, the Wall Street Journal reports Just Four Large Countries Have a Higher Debt Burden Than the U.S. Japan’s government carries debts at 240.3% of gross domestic product, f

Richard Mills - Ahead of the Herd
Imaginations of the Misguided The end of the world as we know it It’s Christmas 2017 and North Korean Dear Leader Kim Jong-un is facing a crisis. Recently the United States, with UN approval, imposed the harshest round of economic sanctions yet on his reclusive regime. While North Korea has been sanctioned since 2006 due to continuing attempts to develop nuclear weapons, this new provocation by its sworn nemesis is the last straw for Kim, who feels the great legacies of his father and grandfather, Kim

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

The Dark Power Behind the Financial Asset Bubbles - 
"While everyone enjoys an economic party the long-term costs of a bubble to the economy and society are potentially great. They include a reduction in the long-term saving rate, a seemingly random distribution of wealth, and the diversion of financial human capital into the acquisition of wealth. As in the United States in the late 1920s and Japan in the late 1980s, the case for a central bank ultimately to burst that bubble becomes overwhelming. I think it is far better that we do so while th

Bubble Watch: The Fed KNOWS We're in a 1999-Type Mania...
The Fed raised rates another 0.25% the week before last. This marks the 5th rate hike since the Fed embarked on its policy tightening in December 2015 and the fourth rate hike in the last 12 months. The Fed’s latest statement also indicates it plans on raising rates three more times in 2018. It is easy to gloss over the significance of this, but the Fed’s actions are indeed unusual; other major Central Banks (the Swiss National Bank, Bank of Japan, European Central Bank and Bank of England) are

Greg Mankiw’s Ten Principles
I thought I would like to do a little work on the theme of the Magic Formula, which is: Low Taxes and Stable Money. We saw that this theme goes back at least as far as Adam Smith. But, it didn’t appear in Applied Mainline Economics (2017), supposedly an updating of Smith’s original concerns for today. December 8, 2017: Applied Mainline Economics (2017), by Matthew Mitchell and Peter Boettke Greg Mankiw, in his popular textbook Principles of Economics, listed Ten Principles that supposedly repres

Will QE Be the Needle That Bursts the Bond Bubble in 2018?
If you wanted more evidence that Central Banks will stop at nothing to induce inflation, consider that yesterday Bank of Japan stated that it will continue with its QE program and with negative rates for as long as it takes to achieve 2% inflation. Mind you, Japan’s economy has just posted its SEVENTH straight quarter of growth, having exited its last recession at the beginning of 2016. Put another way, the Bank of Japan is running CRISIS-type monetary policies (NIRP and ~$750 billion in QE per
