  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

Total Return of Stocks, Bonds, Gold, 1871-2015
Today, we are looking at the total return of stocks, bonds and gold, from 1871 to 2015. The source of the data is here: http://www.econ.yale.edu/~shiller/data.htm I calculated the total return this way: stocks: index return plus 1/12th of dividend each month bonds: “long term” bond yield, compounded monthly gold: price in dollars This is not a very good way of calculating a bond index. There is no provision for the market price of bonds, among other issues. But, it should be good enough for a ro

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

“This Is Crazy” – Antarctic Supervolcano Is Melting The Ice-Caps From Within
This report was originally published by Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge As we’ve pointed out, the supervolcano phenomenon is hardly unique to Yellowstone National Park, where a long dormant volcano with the potential to cause a devastating eruption has been rumbling since mid-summer, making some scientists uneasy. Surprisingly active supervolcanos have been documented in Italy, North Korea and, now, Antarctica after scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) have found new evidence to supp

  Spanking the Monkey
The hysteria manufacturing business formerly known as the news media is enjoying multiple orgasms this morning in the outing of notoriously vulgar comedian Louis CK for exactly the sort of vulgar behavior offstage that he riffed about onstage. What a surprise. We also learn today that Jeremy Piven, beloved and admired for his role as a bimbo-berating Hollywood agent in the HBO comedy Entourage, is alleged to have groped a starlet in his trailer. Or was he just doggedly staying in character betwe

EVERY WORKING AMERICAN OWES $ 1.5 MILLION
The facts just don’t add up. US wages are falling, trade deficit is at 10 year high, debt is surging so are stocks and the US Government has again managed to publish a number of contradicting employment figures that make no sense whatsoever. A CONFIDENT BUT UNEMPLOYED CONSUMER US Consumer Sentiment US Consumer Sentiment is the highest in 13 years. At the same time US October Household Employment Survey dropped 484,000 and the Labour Force shrank by 765,000. But due to manipulation of the figure

Cryptos may destabilise fiat 
The assumption in some quarters is that crypto-currencies will replace gold as money, or at least challenge it. This is an error borne out of a misunderstanding of catallactics, or the theory of exchange. It also ignores the fact that beyond a few European countries and North America, gold is firmly money in the minds of ordinary people. I wrote an article on this subject, explaining why cryptocurrencies are not a new form of money, here.Anyone reading this article may wish to read my original a

Gold, Bubbles, SP 500, and Currency Wars - Gary Christenson
From John Rubino: “We’ll Look Back At This And Cringe” “Millions of people out there still bear the psychic scars of buying gold at $800/oz in 1980 or a tech stock at 1,000 times earnings in 1999 or a Miami condo for $1,000 per square foot in 2006. Today’s bubble will leave some similar marks. But where those previous bubbles were narrowly focused on a single asset class, this one is so broad-based that the hangover is likely to be epic in both scope and cumulative embarrassment.” BU

Shelter From The Storm
What storm?  The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DOW) reached another all-time high.  Interest rates in the U.S. are yielding multi-decade lows, some say multi-century lows. Trillions of dollars in global sovereign debt have negative yield and European junk bonds yield less than 10 year U.S. treasuries. “Official” unemployment is low. Borrowing is inexpensive. Things are good, so they say! Ho-Hum! Really?  Do you believe the above is a fair and accurate representation of our economic world?  If so

Gold Price +0.9, Silver Investment 'Weak' as $300m 'Kill' Hits Crypto
GOLD PRICE gains of 0.9% for the week so far held firm in London trade Wednesday as world stock markets flat-lined with bonds and commodities, and news spread that hundreds of millions of dollars held in crypto-currency Ethereum have been potentially lost by a developer "error". Between $150-300 million-worth of crypto-currency was either frozen or destroyed late Monday – depending on whose analysis you read – after

Don’t Expect Palladium Prices to Plunge
Over the past month, there has been a deluge of news heralding a new era of palladium, which has soared above the $1000 per ounce mark for the first time in the past 16 years. Moreover, palladium also overtook platinum and is still being traded at a premium to it. The overwhelming majority (78 percent) of the world’s palladium is used in gasoline-fueled cars’ catalytic converters, with minor volumes going into electronic resistor production and dental construction. A plethora of factors has been

My original thought was to write further about the left turning on and eating each other. The volume of news, “who” and the timing seemed to indicate something very big coming down.

  Nietzsche, Trump, and the Political Left 
The German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche, warned us back in the 19th century with his famous theme, the “Transvaluation of Values.” An ominous world dictatorship was coming where good would become evil, and evil good. Freedom would be thought of as slavery, and slavery would become freedom. He “boldly prophesied that power politics and vicious wars were in store for the future. What he sensed was an approaching period of nihilism, the seeds of which had already been sown.” [1] Ironically, eve

  ONLY CONTRARIANS WILL SURVIVE 
We are currently standing before one of the most unique and frightening periods in history. Never have there been so many extremes in so many different areas. In the last 100 years everything seems to have developed so much faster, including population, technology, inflation, debt, money printing, budget deficits, stock, bond and property prices, crypto currencies etc. All of these areas are now in an exponential growth phase. The final stage of exponential growth is explosive and looks like a s

Gold Demand Explodes Higher as China Announces Decline in Gold Production - Rory Hall
It’s funny that you can’t hardly give away gold or silver in the U.S. or Europe – you know, the nations that are completely broke and need to preserve their wealth, while at the exact same time the people that are moving up the wealth ladder, China, Russia and India, are all acquiring gold and silver by the handful. What does that tell you about wealth preservation? We, in the West, get articles from the mainstream media telling us to stay away from gold or “invest” in gold through paper v
