The LBMA Is A Ploy of the Central Bank Community - Nico Simons
This article is about the way the Central Bank Community manipulates the price of gold and the role of the LBMA within. We describe some of the signs that the Central Bank Community manipulate the price of gold and that they are using the LBMA to reach their goal. Is the manipulation of the gold price a classic case of Diffusion of responsibility because so many organizations are involved and avoid taking responsibility? Manipulation is a joint effort of the Central Bank Community The sig

  Diminishing Returns 
These two words are the hinge that is swinging American life — and the advanced techno-industrial world, for that matter — toward darkness. They represent an infection in the critical operations of daily life, like a metabolic disease, driving us into disorder and failure. And they are so omnipresent that we’ve failed to even notice the growing failure all around us. Mostly, these diminishing returns are the results of our over-investments in making complex systems more complex, for instance the

ECLIPSE WARNING: “Thousands Of People Will Either Damage Or Entirely Lose Their Eyesight Tomorrow”
With a rare solar eclipse approaching and millions of people flocking to locations around the United States that are in or near the path of totality, some may not realize that the celestial event poses an extreme danger. As noted by Karl Denninger at The Market Ticker, while the August 21st solar eclipse may be a once in a lifetime sight to see, the actual act of seeing it may cause serious damage to your eyesight: You’ve probably seen various sites talking about safety issues.  The issues are r

The weakest boom ever
[This post is a slightly-modified excerpt from a recent TSI commentary] The US economic boom that followed the bust of 2007-2009 is still in progress. It has been longer than average, but at the same time it has been unusually weak. The weakness is even obvious in the government’s own heavily-manipulated and positively-skewed data. For example, the following chart shows that during the current boom* the year-over-year growth rate of real GDP peaked at only 3.3% and has averaged only about 2.0%.

BullionStar quoted in Wall Street Journal article on New York Fed gold
On August 10, the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) published an article about the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (FRBNY) custody gold and the NY Fed’s gold vault. This vault is located under the New York Fed’s headquarters at 33 Liberty in Manhattan, New York City. The article, titled “The Fed Has 6,200 Tons of Gold in a Manhattan Basement – Or Does It?”, can be read on the subscription only WSJ site here, but is also viewable in full on both the Fox News Business and MorningStar websites, here and h

  Debt, Dollars, DOW, War, Silver, and Shirts
Yes, they are connected. Dollars are created as debt. More dollars in circulation = more debt. More debt means consumption is “pulled forward” from the future so consumption can occur now. This usually ends badly. Commercial banks and central banks have created trillions of new dollars. Each new dollar devalues every other dollar currently in circulation, in savings, and in pension accounts. Prices rise! Wars are costly, kill people and produce little. Governments like wars because t

A Midsummer Night's Dream: Buy Precious Metals
Each year since 1987, I have always used the final two weeks of the month of August as a shopping period in a manner not unlike the “Back-to-School” kind only the wares I seek are junior precious metals stocks as opposed to school uniforms, pens, and books. It began after I had been speaking with one of the finest brokers I had ever had the opportunity to know, Edmonton’s late George Milton, whose claim to fame was being the early financier for Bre-X (Not to worry, he and the bulk of his clients

So When Will China’s Debt Bubble Finally Blow Up?
The upside is fake stability. The downside is too ugly to contemplate. Corporate debt in China has soared to $18 trillion, or 169% of GDP, the largest pile of corporate debt in the world, according to the worried Bank for International Settlements. The OECD has warned about it earlier this year. The New York Fed warned about this debt boom in February and that it could lead to a “financial crisis,” but that authorities have many tools to control it. The IMF regularly warns about China’s corporat

  Can a government surplus cause the economy to tank? 
According to the article linked HERE, if the US or the Australian or the UK government repaid all of its debt, the economy would tank. The article contains such a large number of factual errors and such a copious amount of nonsense that completely debunking it would take far more time than I’m prepared to spend, so in this post I’ll only deal with a few of the flaws. To begin, the article points out that US government surpluses have, in the past, often been followed by depressions or recessions,

Fanciful Fed Follies
Having just returned from boating in northern Georgian Bay and an area called The North Channel, I have been by and large out of contact with gold and silver prices since July 22 and am delighted to see that prices have stabilized after dipping in late Spring to under $1,210. Over the past month, the global stock markets have all danced around all-time highs with Dr. Copper forging a break-out above the $2.90 level, marking the highest close in two years. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos briefly became the

Employment Is Not the Key to Economic Growth
The US unemployment rate stood at 4.3% in July against 4.4% in the month before. The number of unemployed stood at 6.981 million – an increase of 4,000 from June. A relatively low unemployment rate is considered by most experts as an important factor for economic growth.This way of thinking based on the view that a reduction in the number of unemployed means that more people can now afford to boost their expenditure. As a result, economic activity follows suit. If unemployment is an important dr

It’s All Going Wrong For A Gold Cartel On The Precipice
I wasn’t planning to write another article this week – as tomorrow morning (Friday), I’m taping a MUST LISTEN interview with one of the smartest investors in the Precious Metals/Cryptocurrency space; Edward Blake, the Renegade Investor.  Not to mention, it’s the middle of August, and I have yet to take a day off from publishing all year.  However, as we are living through what may well be a major inflection point in history – monetary and otherwise – I figured I’d pen a few thoughts.  What the h

  Battle of the Behemoths 
As the empire deliquesces into a fetid slurry of economic failure, we stand ankle deep in the rising swamp waters witnessing the futile battle of the giants, Walmart and Amazon. Neil Howe, co-author of The Fourth Turning, wrote this week that “[t]he Amazon-Walmart rivalry will determine the future of retail.” Well, it seems that way, perhaps, and I understand why a lot of people would imagine it, but I would draw some different conclusions. What we’re seeing is more like the battle between Godzi

Cryptocurrency - its status as money
The cryptocurrency craze is fascinating to an economist, or at least a student of catallactics, because it is a test of the theory of exchange ratios and prices, which is what catallactics is about.For this reason, the outcome of the cryptocurrency craze is of great theoretical interest. It is also of interest to students of the psychology of speculation.Supporters of cryptocurrencies claim they are money. If they are unable to substantiate this claim, then we must conclude that cryptocurrencies

Gold a star performer in Australian minerals exploration
As gold adds shine to Australia’s lacklustre minerals exploration sector, what and who is driving the upsurge in activity? Gold exploration rose 30 per cent year on year in the March quarter to make up 46 per cent of Australia’s total minerals expenditure, an Australian Government report released last week revealed. Western Australia is still the core of the nation’s $155 million gold exploration activity, attracting 75 per cent of expenditure in the sector. The diggers and dealers have been spu
