Can Technology Prevent a Recession?
The world has come a long way since the heady days before the Great Depression of the 1930s. Technology, for one thing, has meant vast changes to our way of life and indeed to significant improvements in our economic productivity. Indeed, it is sometimes argued that these technological advances now make us depression-proof.Of course, the same line of reasoning — vast improvements in technology over successive decades making the world immune to massive slumps — could have been made before the 193

  2018: The Wrong Lesson on Gold Investing
Gold investing can wait 'til the crash. Right...? SO EVERYONE thinks the stock market is about to pull back or even crash, but no one is doing a damn thing about it, writes Adrian Ash at BullionVault. "Many clients we meet are fully invested bears," reports ever-bearish strategist Albert Edwards at SocGen, "nervously looking over their shoulder for signals of the next 'G

Silver: 2018 and Beyond
Do you appreciate the beauty of silver coins? Do you understand the necessity for silver in our modern world? American Silver Eagle coins and Canadian Silver Maple Leafs represent value, history, and ownership of an industrially important metal that has been money for thousands of years. Silver for 2018 Governments and central banks inevitably inflate the supply of currency units (devaluation) more rapidly than the underlying economy grows.

Macroeconomic Outlook for 2018 and Gold
Luckily or not, 2017 is behind us. It was a positive year for the gold market, as the yellow market gained more than 12 percent. However, investors are forward-looking, so let’s focus on what the coming months will bring. The next year will be shaped mostly by the following broad economic trends: Global activity is improving.Labor markets are strengthening further.Subdued inflation is finally rising (but moderately).Central banks are slowly reducing their monetary policy stimulus.Interest rates

The Marginal Productivity of Debt
The paper mill on the Potomac is furiously spewing up new money. According to the manager of the mill, as indeed according to the Quantity Theory of Money, this should stop prices from falling and the economy from contracting. In this article I present an argument why this conclusion is not valid

  One-year score card for Trump
We understand our politicians to be human, with much that that implies. In a democracy, politics is a competitive business, which means that generally well-balanced individuals tend to succeed, while those who are obviously unbalanced do not. And as for political power corrupting individuals, that is normally limited by the obligation to periodically seek an electoral mandate. That, at least is the theory, but in late-2016, the election of President-elect Donald Trump caused us all to question t

Interest Rates Walking On Narrow Ledge
There is a huge shock in store for those who have been lulled to sleep by a stock market that has become accustomed to no volatility and only an upward direction. And that alarm bell can be found in the price action of Bitcoin, which recently tumbled over 40% is less than a week. For the implosion within the cryptocurrency world foreshadows what will happen with the major averages as the Federal Reserve futilely attempts to stop monetizing the exploding mountain of U.S. debt.

10 Reasons Why You Should Add To Your Gold Holdings
– Gold currently undervalued– Since 2000, the gold price has beaten the S&P 500 Index– A ‘a once-in-a-decade opportunity’ as gold-to-S&P 500 ratio is at its lowest point in 10 years.– Reached ‘peak gold’ as exploration budgets continue to tighten– $80 trillion sits in global equities, a ‘ticking time bomb’ – Gold remains an appealing diversifier in the current environment of high valuations and uncertainties by Frank Holmes via Forbes.com It’s important to remember that the precious metal has hi

Why does money inflate?
People who live in developed nations have grown used to inflation of around 2% a year over the last few decades. Why do prices generally rise by that amount? What drives the purchasing power of money in these countries? Why can’t prices stay constant year-over-year rather than increasing? To help answer some of these questions, let's go far back in time. We'll divide the last one thousand or so years into three monetary eras: the silver coin period, metal-backed notes, and fiat money. How would

The Gold Market in 2017
So another year has passed. How quickly it happened! But we hope that you did not get bored, and instead took time to learn more about the fascinating gold market. At first glance, 2017 seems to be a dull period for the yellow metal, as it was traded within a narrow range of $1,200-$1,300 for most of the year. However, all that glitters is not gold, and all that does not fluctuate like Bitcoin is not uninteresting. Actually, the price of bullion gained more than 12 percent, as one can see in the

Economists Think Inflation Will Rise Sharply in 2018: They're Wrong
Let's investigate six reasons economists think inflation is about to pick in 2018 and why I think they are dreaming.Reason Number One - Wage Hikes Minimum wages rise in 18 states starting in 2018. Former Fed Vice-Chairman Stanley Fischer told Bloomberg TV on October 4, “I still believe we will have higher inflation. The basic mechanism here is unemployment is declining all the time, wages will start going up at some stage.” Wage Hike Rebuttal The National Bureau of Economic Research paper: Mi

Here’s 5 Reasons Gold Stocks Will Breakout in 2018
There are very few sellers leftThere were very few sellers left in January 2016 when the devastating “forever bear” was about to end. Six months later and a 150% rebound in the large caps and 200% rise in the juniors (GDXJ) provided sellers an opportunity. They drove the miners and juniors down by 40% to 45% in less than five months. However, both GDX and GDXJ have been able to hold above that low multiple times. GDX has held $21 four times! GDXJ has held $29.50 twice in solid fashion. The bears

Gold Market Themes for 2018
2018 has just begun. What will a new year bring for the gold market? Macroeconomic Outlook Will Remain Unpleasant The current economic expansion is surprisingly durable, as it has already lasted more than 100 months. It worries many investors who are afraid of the upcoming recessions. Surely, there are many reasons to worry, and the recession will eventually come. But we are not at this point yet. The current expansion is unusually long, but it is exceptionally sluggish. This year we expect that

Mint Sales Plunge Throughout 2017
If one is interested in picking up some numismatic coins that have the potential to carry some heavy premiums in the years to come 2017 could be one the years to add to your stack. Not all coins produced during 2017 will command high premiums in the future, and maybe not a single one will, but if one looks through the offerings at the US Mint, Perth Mint and Royal Canadian Mint I know there will be some diamonds in the rough that should be outstanding additions to any stack and come with the add

THE PERMA BEARS ARE GOING TO BE WRONG AGAIN IN 2018
Early in 2017 I made a prediction. I knew all year long that we would see one analyst after another try to call a top in this bull market. I also knew every one of them were going to be wrong. A perma bear bias is a great way to sell newsletter subscriptions, but it is completely worthless market analysis. And just like I predicted, every other day we would see another analyst come out predicting a top. When we moved into the fall the predictions for a September or October crash became deafening

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

UK High School Student Asks Mish About "Life As an Investment Advisor"
Reader John Tan from the UK asks about my passion for economics and life as an investment advisor. Interview JT: What led your choices to being an investment advisor and how did your passion for economics and business begin? Mish: I have had three careers. I graduated from the University of Illinois in 1976 with a degree in civil engineering. I worked two years in the field and hated it. My passion at the time was computers and I realized I got my degree in the wrong major. Back then it was easi
