Valuation Anomalies Suggest Historic Precious Metal Lows
Today, we’re going to start with an interview with billionaire Frank Giustra – perhaps, Canada’s most famous mining stock promoter.  Who, in this interview, comes as close to accusing gold of being manipulated as mainstream investors are “allowed.” Do you think the gold market is manipulated? No, I don’t think it is manipulated.  Manipulation is a strong word. But I do believe it is managed, by the policy makers who need to keep confidence in a system when it goes sideways.  Any major spike in t

BOJ’s Kuroda: need to stick with easing, watch price trend
Reuters/Stanley White/06-21-17 Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said maintaining the current easy monetary conditions is appropriate because prices are lagging improvements in the economy and remain distant from the central bank’s inflation target. …”Our economy is on firmer footing, but we are still distant from our 2 percent inflation target,” Kuroda said. “It is appropriate to keep monetary conditions easy with our current market operations framework.”

  Fractional-Reserve Banking and Money Creation
According to traditional economics textbooks, the current monetary system amplifies initial monetary injections of money. The popular story goes as follows: if the central bank injects $1 billion into the economy, and banks have to hold 10% in reserve against their deposits, this will allow the first bank to lend 90% of this $1 billion. The $900 million in turn will end up with the second bank, which will lend 90% of the $900 million. The $810 million will end up with a third bank, which in turn

Precious Metals VS. Crypto-Currency And Mainstream Investments-“Revisited”
Two days after the most suicidal, hubristically arrogant policy statement in FOMC history, by an institution desperate to maintain the dead propaganda meme of “growth”; and with it, the Cartel’s “response” – gold remains less than $20/oz below its 5½ year downtrend line, and $20/oz above its 200 week moving average; whilst silver – in my view, more undervalued than at any time in history – is just a buck below its 200 week moving average, but a full $0.65/oz above its 5½ year downtrend line.  In

  Global Times - Hard lessons from China's silver standard 
History will repeat, but this time around America will not be able to coin silver Trade Dollars to conduct trade with Asia. Oops. Oh, where O where did my empire go? Source: Caijing.com.cn  [08:30 July 15 2009] Chinese macroeconomic historian Ray Huang used to say the Qing Dynasty never understood monetary and fiscal policy, and therefore was unable to compete against the West. In those days, monetary policy in China was essentially tied to silver, the national money standard since t

This Insubstantial Pageant Faded...
We are living in a dream-world. All so-called money in the world is dream-money that consists of digits issued by Central Banks; the so-called "Reserves" of these Central Banks consist of digits issued by a small group of official digit-issuers, the Central Banks of the US, the Euro area, England, Japan, Switzerland and now recently, of China. Now a select group of digit-issuers, which are not Central Banks, have come into the dream-money world: the principal one is the group of so-called "min

Reflation, Deflation and Gold
One of the most important economic debate today is whether the economy will experience reflation or deflation (or low inflation) in the upcoming months. Has the recent reflation been only a temporary jump? Or has it marked the beginning of a new trend? Is the global economy accelerating or are we heading into the next recession? It goes without saying that it is a key investment issue because of the implications for different asset classes, including the precious metals. Let’s try to outline the

Are Banks Hoarding Cash? Debate Over “Free Money” Interest on Excess Reserves
In response to Free Money! Banks Paid $22 Billion to Not Lend? I received a comment from economist Professor George Selgin who said I do not know what I am talking about. Selgin made similar comments about Chris Whalen, Chairman of Whalen Global Advisors LLC,  in two supporting links. I also received a Tweet from economist Professor Steve Keen who said: “Mish Nails It“. Both viewpoints cannot be right. Let’s explore competing viewpoints on lending excess reserves, banks hoarding cash, and free m

There are only two other times in history when stocks were more expensive than today
We are having a hard time finding high-quality companies at attractive valuations. For us, this is not an academic frustration. We are constantly looking for new stocks by running stock screens, endlessly reading (blogs, research, magazines, newspapers), looking at holdings of investors we respect, talking to our large network of professional investors, attending conferences, scouring for ideas published on value-investor networks, and finally, looking with frustration at our large (and growing)

  WILL GOLD REACH $2.6 MILLION OR JUST $150,000
Last week, we were again reminded of the global instability and disequilibrium. In the UK, the conservative Prime Minister Theresa May decided 9 weeks ago to call an election. This was done due to the conservatives being 20 percentage points ahead of their Labour rivals in the opinion polls which would have led to a strong backing for the Brexit negotiations as well as another five years in power. But things went disastrously wrong. An extremely badly run campaign by Mrs May and an opportunistic

Brexit, Germany and Asia 
Britain’s general election went horribly wrong, with the Conservatives forced into a putative coalition with the Democratic Ulster Party. Theresa May’s failure to secure a clear majority has provoked indignation, bitterness, and widespread pessimism.The purpose of this article is not to contribute to this outcry, but to take a more measured view of the situation faced by the British government with regards to Brexit, and the consequences for Europe. In the interests of an international readershi

“Low-Interest Rate People”
It’s early Wednesday morning, with markets “quiet” ahead of what, in my very strong view will be, per the title of yesterday’s article, the “Fed’s last rate hike.” (ACTUALLY, THEY’RE NO LONGER “QUIET” AFTER THE HORRIFIC RETAIL SALES AND CPI PRINTS THAT JUST CAME OUT – DESCRIBED AT THE END OF THIS ARTICLE – JUST BEFORE I HIT SEND). The reasons I believe so are explained in said article, so I’m not going to reiterate them here.  Then again, it doesn’t take an “expert” to realize raising rates into

One Massive, Global, Serial Bubble
These missives that I construct periodically usually have as their genesis a "Eureka!" moment while reading a research piece or a written commentary from one of the thousands of self-styled market authorities or if I have the random luck of catching an interview on Bloomberg or (UGH!) CNBC. During a normal week, I will text myself a quick note or leave myself a voice note when and if an idea comes to mind so when I am travelling, it is usually preferable that I be close to a decent WiFi signal i

Japan Holds Evacuation Drills, Showing Concern Over North Korea’s Missile Tests
The Japanese are no longer taking any chances against the rogue North Korean regime and Kim Jong-Un’s insistence on the continued testing of ballistic missiles. Japan is now participating in more frequent evacuation drills in the event that they are attacked by North Korea. Although drills of this type aren’t the first in Japan this year, they are increasing in frequency. Sunday’s evacuation drill in the town of Abu, Yamaguchi prefecture, is showing how concerned the Japanese are about a potenti

Soaring Debt = Slow Growth = Even More Debt = Systemic Crisis
It's just common sense: Borrow too much money and the weight of this debt makes it hard to do things that used to be easy. This truism is now (finally!) hitting home, and blame is being apportioned. A couple of recent examples: Over The Last 10 Years The U.S. Economy Has Grown At EXACTLY The Same Rate As It Did During The 1930s (Economic Collapse Blog) - Even though I write about our ongoing long-term economic collapse every day, I didn't realize that things were this bad.

Why The Markets Are Overdue For A Gigantic Bust
Let me begin with a caveat: confirmation bias is an ever-present risk for an analyst such as myself. If you're not familiar with the term, 'confirmation bias' suggests that once we've invested time and emotional energy into developing a worldview, we'll then seek information to confirm that view.    After writing about the economy for so many years, I'm now so convinced that we can't print our way to prosperity that I find myself seeing signs confirming this view everywhere, every single day.

Draghi Confesses: Eurozone Needs ECB Cash
Whereas some members of the governing council of the European Central Bank were hinting the monetary policy would return back to ‘normal’ sooner rather than later, Mario Draghi, the president of the ECB, had a completely different opinion when he testified at the European Parliament. According to Draghi, all stimulus measures need to remain in place until the Eurozone returns to a normalized inflation rate, and reducing the efforts of the ECB aren’t even being discussed. Draghi did confirm t

Western Union Speaks on Coinbase Pilot Integration David Thompson, the CTO of global remittance giant Western Union, took the stage at MoneyConf 2017 in Madrid, Spain to speak about his outlook on digital currency and announced a pilot program with Coinbase.

CASSANDRA, CENTRAL BANKS and GOLD
by Egon von Greyerz The general public doesn’t like hearing what some of us who are Cassandras have to say. Because our message is does not fit in with the choir of propaganda and lies. We are predicting a future for the world which is unpleasant for most people and therefore few believe our predictions. It is part of human nature to believe that the current state of affairs will go on forever. And that is the case whether times are good or bad. In bad times, everyone believes that it will n

How gold can rescue pensions 
The World Economic Forum, in conjunction with Mercers (the actuaries) recently estimated that the combined pension deficit currently stands at $66.9tr for eight countries, rising to $427.8tr in 2050. The eight countries are Australia, Canada, China, India, Japan, Netherlands, UK and US. Of the 2016 figure, $50.5tr is unfunded government and public employee pension promises. Yes, we are now talking in hundreds of trillions. Other welfare-providing states missing from the list have deficits that a
