Why Fractional-Reserve Banking Would Be Limited in an Unhampered Market
The so-called multiplier arises as a result of the fact that banks are legally permitted to use money that is placed in demand deposits. Banks treat this type of money as if it was loaned to them, thus loaning it out while simultaneously allowing depositors to spend that money.RELATED: "Austrians, Fractional Reserves, and the Money Multiplier" by Robert BatemarcoFor example, if John places $100 in demand deposit at Bank One he doesn't relinquish his claim over the deposited $100. He has unlimite

Melt-up, Up, and Away
While the moniker for this missive is "Gold and Gold Miners," I just sit back in absolute AWE as the global equity investors (otherwise known as "Stock jockeys") have decided that "cash is TRASH!" and despite a massive "miss" in the employment numbers this morning, within seconds of the release, the spin doctors manning the equity trading desks deemed that number "bullish" because it is less inflationary and may cause the Fed to "pause." So dollar-yen rallies, the USD index has a minor pop, gold

I’m in Awe of How Far the Scams Stupidities around “Blockchain Stocks” are Going
This can happen only during the very late stage of a bubble. It just doesn’t let up. UBI Blockchain Internet, a Hong Kong outfit whose shares trade in the US [UBIA], filed with the SEC to sell an additional 72.3 million shares owned by its executives. In other words, it isn’t selling the shares to raise money for corporate purposes, but to allow its executives, including CEO Tony Liu, to bail out. This is happening after the company – which sports zero revenues and a disconnected phone number in

Cheering for Bitcoin
We have published many articles, arguing that bitcoin is unsound. Yet for all those arguments, there is a bright side to bitcoin. It is exciting to see that there is an audience of millions of people—mainstream people, not wild-eyed End-The-Fed gold bug preppers who keep their gold hoards with their stockpiles of ammo—who are looking for an alternative to the Fed’s failing fiat currency. Or if not looking actively, at least receptive to it. We believe that the most important force contributing t

  Cryptojunkies: Beware the Ides of December
It was two years ago this week that I proclaimed that we were witnessing the final lows in the 2011–2015 bear market in the precious metals as gold traded down to $1,045 amidst total capitulation by the Large Specs and after massive short-covering by the Commercial traders. The weekly COT for that week showed an aggregate short position of a miniscule 2,911 contracts down from the earlier highs of over 300,000 contracts. About six weeks later, despite the earlier bottom in gold, the HUI (NYSE Ar

THE LEMMINGS ARE HEADING TOWARDS THE CLIFF… AGAIN
Did we learn nothing from the tech bubble? The real estate bubble? The energy bubble? Apparently not, as here we go again. The next series of bubbles is now in progress (Bitcoin is the first). Let me go over again the signs of a bubble. Price will usually rally at least 100% or more in a year or less. A clear sign of out of control human emotions. Price will stretch 40, 50, or even 100%+ above the long term mean (200 day moving average). Investors will start to rationalize reasons for why this r

Inflation and Counterfeit Credit
Let’s take a look at an often-repeated idea that is popular in the gold and alternative investing communities. The government possesses a printing press. Therefore, it will never default. It will just inflate its way out of the debt. It will devalue the dollar. The government does not set the value of the dollar. And it has no mechanism to set it. So, logically, it has no mechanism to reset it. It cannot devalue it. In the same way, you cannot lower yourself down by your bootstraps since you are

Fake gold wasn't ours, Royal Canadian Mint says
http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/fake-gold-not-ours-mint-says-1.4380... A gold bar purchased in Ottawa that turned out to contain no gold did not come from the Royal Canadian Mint, the Crown corporation said today. The mint's statement came the day after CBC News reported that tests showed the 1-ounce gold bar, purchased last month by an Ottawa jeweler from a Royal Bank branch in the Glebe, indicated it contained none of the precious metal. The bar was stamped with the Royal Canadian Mint'

Central Bank “Cryptocurrencies”? Just a Different Kind of Funny-Money - Jeff Nielson
It is quite hilarious to watch the posturing of central banks and their media mouthpieces on the subject of cryptocurrencies. A recent Reuters article on the subject provided numerous moments of mirth. The title alone is good for a chuckle. Too Soon to Determine Risks of Central Bank-Issued Cryptocurrencies: BIS It’s always amusing when these shameless con-men (and women) attempt to portray themselves as sober arbiters of risk. Those who understand our monetary system are aware that the fu

  The full guide to Nazi gold and currency war 
This morning’s papers and news-shows are full of the story that in 1939 the Bank of England facilitated the sale of Nazi looted gold, not just once but at least twice during that year. Both times without approval of the British government, despite an attempt to freeze Czech assets. The story of Nazi gold is both fascinating and tragic. We take a look at ‘the greatest robbery of all time’ and draw parallels with the modern day gold migration. What is Nazi gold? Nazi gold is a phrase that refers t

FIVE MYTHS ABOUT THE GOLD STANDARD (Part I) - Ron Paul Cong. Larry McDonald 
Americans are for the most part ignorant of the gold 'standard' envisioned by Ron Paul. Before the 'unenlightened ones' lend an ear to the quacks and frauds that'll twist and spin what Ron Paul proposes, best you read this 1981 congressional tract of his from 1981. A Gold Coin Exchange Standard is what he is suggesting. Under such a system, the Federal Reserve Notes would compete for gold in our markets as a medium of exchange.  F

Against Irredeemable Paper, Report 23 July 2017
Something needs to be said. We are against the existence of irredeemable paper currency, central banking and central planning, cronyism, socialized losses and privatized gains, counterfeit credit, wealth transfers and bailouts, and welfare both corporate and personal. When we write to debunk the conspiracy theories that say manipulation is keeping gold from hitting $5,000 (one speaker here at FreedomFest claimed gold will go to $65,000), we are not trying to defend the Fed. When we discuss the f

Cryptocurrencies vs. Bullion - Jeff Nielson
Bitcoin and ethereum. By now, at least one of these names will be familiar to readers. These are “crypto-currencies”. What is a crypto-currency? In general terms, a crypto-currency is a digital currency where the value/exchange rate of that currency is the product of a complex mathematical formula. Proponents of these crypto-currencies are adamant that these formulae are valid and therefore this ensures the integrity of these new currencies. That point will be briefly addressed later in this art

The Traitors Abetting The Deep State's Dirty, Dying War on Gold - Stewart Dougherty
Evidence is mounting that the Deep State (DS) is starting to lose the dirtiest financial war in history: their War on Gold. More deeply, it is a war against something the Deep State profoundly loathes: personal financial liberty. The War on Gold, which has raged for 37+ years, has generated more than $1 trillion in criminal profits for the Deep State plunderers, while costing the worldwide owners of physical gold multiple trillions of dollars. All of this is coming to an end. Due to its criminal

What Is A “Legal Tender Law”? And, Is It A Problem?
What is a legal tender law? Over the years, there has been some discussion about “legal tender laws” in the United States. I talked to a legal expert about it, and discovered – as I suspected – that it doesn’t mean quite the same thing as many people think it does. Here is my (non-expert) explanation. The present legal
