Economic Nationalism
I thought that I would chew over the idea of “economic nationalism” for a bit, to see if we could find something useful in it. The neo-liberal free trade/no borders consensus is a little too easily promoted by many today, apparently without much thought. I am generally in the neo-liberal camp, but I wanted to think about it. For some reason, “nationalism” is a naughty word these days, but all that it means is that one feels an allegiance to one’s “nation.” The main reason for the badmouthing of

Gold Miners’ Q4’17 Fundamentals
The gold miners’ stocks remain deeply out of favor, trading at prices seen when gold was half or even a quarter of current levels.  So many traders assume this small contrarian sector must be really struggling fundamentally.  But nothing could be farther from the truth!  The major gold miners’ recently-released Q4’17 results prove they are thriving.  Their languishing stock prices are the result of irrational herd sentiment. Four times a year publicly-traded co

The egregious errors of static statistics
The measure of a man's real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out. Lord Macaulay wrote this nearly two hundred years ago. His aphorism is particularly apposite of modern politicians, and also of the modern state itself, which is meant to be selfless in the interest of the common good. We can be certain that when a person moves from outside to inside the machinery of the state, he or she changes from representing the people to representing the state. Presumably ther

Target Prices Raised on Cobalt Pure-Play After Major Royalty Acquisition
Analysts assess the move by this company to acquire a royalty on a project that one calls "one of the largest undeveloped nickel reserves and the largest undeveloped cobalt reserve globally."

Silver Very Undervalued from Historical Perpective of Ancient Greece
– What wages in ancient Athens can tell us about the silver price today – Wages paid in silver in ancient Athens compared to wages today – Silver massively undervalued compared to the past few thousand years The cost of building the Parthenon was 469 silver talents, or about £5.6m. by Dominic Frisby Today we look at the wages paid to oarsmen on warships in ancient Athens in 450BC. I bet you’ve never read a Money Morning that began like that before. Why on earth would I want to do such a thing?

The origin of cycles
It was Karl Marx who was among the first believers that cyclical behaviour was endemic to free markets.He lived through a time when there was a regular cycle of boom and bust, with phases of economic expansion followed by contraction. Workers were employed and then unemployed, and the only way this could be stopped, in Marxian economics, was for the workers to acquire the means of production, or more correctly, the state to do so on their behalf.Other economists, such as Jevons and Wicksell, rec

  Concrete Nuclear Dome Is LEAKING RADIOACTIVE Waste Into The Ocean
The nuclear waste dome on Runit Island northeast of Australia is leaking. The site is pouring nuclear radioactive waste from 43 tests directly into the ocean. Between 1948 and 1958, the Enewetak Atoll was used by the US government to test 30 megatons of nuclear weapons, which is the equivalent to 2,000 Hiroshima blasts. More than 8,000 people later worked hard to clean up that island, shifting 110,000 cubic yards of radioactive debris into a 30-foot-deep crater, which was later sealed in a concr

Resurgent US oil industry priming the economic pump
Crude oil prices dropped from $110 a barrel in the summer of 2014 to about $30 in January 2016. The effect on oil producers and oil-producing countries was dramatic. The Russian ruble plunged, and the Canadian dollar slipped to below 70 cents US for the first time since 2003, kicking the country into recession and snuffing out the oil boom in Alberta. Many foreign companies operating in the high-cost Canadian oil sands pulled up stakes. One of the hardest hit countries was Venezuela, whose petr

While Everyone Focuses on U.S. Government Shutdown, This Country Faces Crisis
The U.S. government partially closed at midnight on Friday. But the UK deals with a much more serious crisis. Potentially also for gold. Unlike the U.S. Government, the Gold Market Never Closes So it happened again. The most powerful country in the world didn’t manage to renew another short-term government funding extension. It’s quite embarrassing, but we all should already get used to it. Since 1976, there have been almost 20 previous occurrences. But the world never collapsed. Why should it,

How Much Should Homes Cost (To Rent)
Previously, we looked into how much homes should cost. Basically, we concluded that the cost of homes should be a function of construction costs, which are basically stable, profit and some other non-construction costs such as corporate overhead, and land costs. Since there is no particular shortage of land in any U.S. city today, there is no particular reason for very high land costs; and thus, no particular reason why homes should cost very much more than construction costs.

The truth about trade
The one subject, which became a headline issue last year, and even divides experts is trade. It will become increasingly important in 2018 as the US develops her trade policy, particularly with respect to China, and as the UK negotiates her Brexit terms with the EU. Ignorance dominates this subject. Surely, people say, industry should be protected from unfair trade practices, such as goods manufactured in foreign sweat-shops, or unfair dumping of commodities, such as steel. If President Trump ca

The Tristan Chord: A book review
The Tristan Chord: Wagner and Philosophy; Brian Magee, 2000, Macmillan A book review by Peter McKenzie-Brown Tristan und Isolde is an opera in three acts by Richard Wagner to a libretto he wrote himself. I’m not sure how well you know Wagner. A lot of opera lovers, including my wife, find his operas difficult and only listen to them under duress. Personally, I love his work. Today, I want to talk about the evolution of a revolutionary chord in this opera. I’m not going to push your musical ski

Gold Prices Choppy after Payrolls
The U.S. economy added only 148,000 jobs in December. Gold prices reacted in a choppy way, confusing some analysts. Why? December Payrolls Disappoint Total nonfarm payroll employment increased only 148,000 in December, the slowest pace in three months. The employment gains were generally widespread, but the biggest employers were construction (+30,000), leisure and hospitality (+29,000), education and health services (+28,000), and manufacturing (+25,000). The latter rise is a particularly brigh
