How to Profit from Irrational Low-Inflation Exuberance
Everyday Definition of Inflation:  “Stuff costs more.” U.S. Government Definition of Inflation:  “After extensive statistical analysis and data manipulation … yada yada yada.” Shadowstats publishes their version of consumer price inflation.  The Chapwood Index is another version.  Both indicate real inflation rates in the U.S. are MUCH HIGHER than the official government statistics. THE PROBLEM WITH INFLATION MEASUREMENTS: Inflation measurements, or more properly, consumer price inflation, or e

A Rigged Game 
76 years ago, “Joltin’ Joe” DiMaggio was in the middle of the hitting streak of streaks that would come to 56 consecutive games and which has remained a major league baseball record to this day. That season (1941), the Yankee Clipper would bat .408 during the epic streak or more than 4 hits for every 10 at bats. Ted Williams, of the Boston Red Sox, had the highest batting average in 1941, hitting .406 for the entire season. What would you say if I told you that a batter had hit 1.000 for an enti

“At the time, my life just seemed too complete, and maybe we have to break everything to make something better out of ourselves.”  -Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club I am still trying to interpret and integrate all that I experienced and learned about disintermediation, about myself, and about y'all at last week's First ZeroHedge Symposium and Live Fight Club in Marfa, Texas.

Bonds and Related Indicators (and more macro discussion)
By Gary TanashianThe target for TLT continues to be around 129. Treasury bonds are in bull trends (remember back a few months ago to all the bond hatred in the media). How does an eventual decline in bonds square with what we just noted above regarding Q4 2008? [work done in the preceding Precious Metals segment] Treasury bonds were a wonderfully bullish asset during Armageddon ’08 and who’s to say that an upside blow off may not be coming sooner rather than later amid massively over bullish sen

Dr. Drone
Economist Joseph Schumpeter introduced innovation economics in his 1942 book Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy. Schumpeter said that industries must incessantly revolutionize the economic structure from within by innovating with better or more effective processes and products. We can define, or limit the term "innovation" to a product, or process that’s original, that’s more effective, and as a new application better meets new requirements or existing market needs. Disruptive Innovation A d

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

Gold The CIA Go Back A Long Time - Nico Simons
Question Is the CIA involved with the world gold market?

GSB Weekly Review: FED Hikes, Dollar Climbs, Gold Slides
Gold and Silver Commentary: Gold bottomed in December of 2015 and again in December 2016, but gold prices have risen for the past six months.  The 50 day moving average (gold, but not yet silver) has crossed above the 200 day moving average – a so-called “golden cross.”  Expect higher prices for both gold and silver. Gold should move higher for several years given the increasingly dangerous global economic conditions, low interest rates and continual fiat currency devaluations.  A major stock ma

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

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

All Golden Eyes On The Fed
By: Stewart Thomson1.The next US central bank interest rate announcement is scheduled for tomorrow afternoon.  Gold and related assets are now in “pause mode” against most fiat currencies.2.Gold has a rough general tendency to decline ahead of a rate hike, and then rally strongly after a hike is announced.3.That has happened in textbook fashion with the first three rate hikes in the current hiking cycle.  4.There’s no guarantee that it happens again this time, but if it does gold should take out

As Retail Outlook Dims, Mall Tenants Push for Shorter Leases
Bloomberg/ Lauren Coleman-Lochner & Eliza Ronalds-Hannon/06-09-17 As if malls didn’t have enough problems, count one more: retailers looking to slash the duration of their leases. After more than a dozen bankruptcies this year contributed to thousands of store closures, visibility for the industry is so poor that retailers are pushing for lease renewals as short as a year or two — down from five to 10 years. …Somewhere between 9,000 and 10,000 stores will close in the U.S. this year, said Garric

Gold, the Dow, Bubbles and the Coming Correction
The Dow Jones Industrial Average is trading at all-time highs. The NASDAQ and the S&P 500 are similar. This begs many questions. Are the high stock prices supported by fundaments or have they been levitated with “easy money?” Bubbles always collapse and prices crash. Stock indices are too high, but are they in historical bubble territory? What about gold, silver, real estate and bonds? Are they also in bubbles? Quick Conclusions: Easy money and massive debts – thanks to the Federal Reserve

China's Scandal Tinged Push To Buy Up Hollywood Media
Via Disobedient Media As China's economy has boomed, corporations and individuals with historically close ties to the government have been the major beneficiaries. Sitting flush with massive amounts of cash on hand, power players in the Chinese markets have increasingly sought to branch out and increase their investments in foreign countries. Many of these investments target key industries despite their own government often restricting or forbidding the same kind of foreign investment domestical
