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

China Potentially Threatens a Near Term Us Treasury Short Squeeze!
Problems in China are looming on top of an already very tenuous and misunderstood situation in the US Financial Markets. Additionally, Federal Reserve Policy has made the situation even more combustible! As a result of a Trump Victory inspired bond market massacre there are now few places that a yield starved world can presently find better risk-adjusted yields than in US Treasuries. With China now being forced to sell their FX Reserves and thereby creating  the much needed supply so e

Financial crisis dynamics, the ‘shadow’ gold demand, and Mene
The study of financial crises is as old as the economics discipline itself. One of the most prominent theorists of financial crises ever to hold a senior Federal Reserve policy position was John Exter, vice-president of the New York Federal Reserve during the 1950s. Several years ago I co-wrote a series of essays on Exter’s theories together with his sonin- law, Barry Downs. In this paper, building on Exter’s work, including his eponymous ‘pyramid’, I introduce a new ‘hourglass’ framework for un

50 Million Empty Homes In China, Third-Home Purchases Soar
There are more than 50 million vacant homes in China. An amazing 69% of recent purchases are second or third homes. Home-buying speculation is rampant in China. Over a fifth of China’s homes are empty. That’s 50 Million Empty Apartments. Soon-to-be-published research will show roughly 22 percent of China’s urban housing stock is unoccupied, according to Professor Gan Li, who runs the main nationwide study. That adds up to more than 50 million empty homes, he said. The nightmare scenario for pol

Ronan Manly: Skepticism reigns about true state of China's gold reserves
Bullion Star gold researcher Ronan Manly today reviews China's practice of acquiring gold reserves surreptitiously and reporting them to the International Monetary Fund only at long intervals. In July 2015, Manly notes, China pledged to start regular reporting of gold reserve changes, and did make monthly updates for 14 months, but these stopped in October 2016 and no changes have been reported since. This, Manly suggests, tends to confirm your secretary/treasurer's frequent observation that

China's Effort to Rein in Property Bubble Creates "Rental Loan" Bubble as Well
Rental loans, intended to ease the cost of living in big cities, contribute to China's property bubble mess. Once an economic bubble is inflated, it is damn near impossible to let the air out slowly. China's effort to rein in a property bubble by making it harder to buy homes has the price of rent soaring. The Wall Street Journal notes China’s Property-Market Woes Deepen With Rising Rents. Rental prices for apartments are accelerating by double digits in 30 of China’s biggest, most vibrant citi

Who’s Beholding to Whom Remember China When Conducting Searches
If you still believe the internet is not censored it may be helpful, while still possible, to do a search or two on the censorship that has been unfolding over the past two years. It has been going on far longer than two years, but two years ago, during the Presidential campaign, censorship moved from a theory to full-blown in your face. Now we have google openly helping China to censor what the citizens of China can and can not search. A few weeks ago there was meme that showed up of President

Meanwhile in China, Implosion of Stock-Market Double-Bubble
Stock-market bubbles don’t end well for those who don’t get out in time. US tariffs and threats for more tariffs have not been particularly well received in China, which is already being rattled by corporate credit problems, quakes in the shadow banking system, a peculiar Enron-type phenomenon at provincial and municipal governments called “hidden debt,” and the implosion of nearly 5,000 P2P lenders that have sprung up since 2015. And so today, the Shanghai Composite Index dropped 1.1% to 2,651.

Becoming deliverable, Hong Kong gold futures contract succeeds
By Enoch Yiu South China Morning Post, Hong Kong Sunday, August 27, 2017 The Hong Kong stock exchange's successful launch last month of gold futures was a boon for the city's beleaguered brokers, offering the small and medium firms that are feeding off the crumbs of the bourse extra trading activity and fee income, at a time when equities transactions have slowed to a trickle. "The gold futures launched last month were a good beginning," said Alfred Yeung Ping-kwan, founder and chairman of Glory

China's Most Powerful Weapon In The Trade War
President Donald Trump’s first year in office must have been a pleasant surprise for Chinese President Xi Jinping. A successful state visit in Beijing and an apparent personal chemistry between the two leaders suggested a close relationship between the countries was brewing. But President Trump’s second year has turned that narrative on its head. The trade war between the two largest economies in the world has been intensifying of late, with both countries implementing a second round of tariffs
