The fog around gold really isn't so obsolete at all
"One Nation Under Gold" author James Ledbetter writes in the Los Angeles Times today that the wealthier people are, the less likely they are to own gold, and that gold is best regarded as an investment by people who can't afford it. Ledbetter observes that Americans still own a lot of gold even as nobody is sure how much. Indeed, his essay is most interesting for acknowledging the fog that continues to surround gold. Ledbetter writes: "While we may think that we live in a more accountable era,

Citizens Will Soon Turn their Rage Towards Central Bankers
Via Email, I received an interesting article from Albert Edwards at Societe Generale. Edwards claims citizens will soon turn their rage towards Central Bankers. In an age of “radical uncertainty” how long will it be before angry citizens tire of blaming an impotent political system for their ills and turn on the main culprits for their poverty – unelected and virtually unaccountable central bankers? I expect central bank independence will be (and should be) the next casualty of the current poli

At least the gold coins under your mattress won't do this while you sleep
By Arjun Kharpal CNBC, New York Thursday, June 22, 2017 The price of ethereum crashed as low as 10 cents from around $319 in about a second on the GDAX cryptocurrency exchange on Wednesday, a move that is being blamed on a "multimillion dollar market sell" order. Ethereum is an alternative digital currency to bitcoin and had been trading as high as $352 on Wednesday. It has since rebounded from its flash-crash lows to trade to about $325 on the GDAX exchange. According to industry and price trac

  HUBRIS KILLS WHILST GOLD PROTECTS 
Hubris is a deadly sin. It is an arrogance and conceit of the highest degree that eventually leads to failure. As we reach the final stages of the current economic cycle, hubris is prevalent everywhere. Central bankers and bankers believe that they can continue to create wealth by printing and borrowing money. Since it has worked so well for 100 years in this latest cycle, why can’t it continue? The laws of nature can’t be set aside Throughout history, governments have attempted to set aside th

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

Only Gold Lasts Forever
This current state of play won’t last forever. Only Gold lasts forever Some days it can feel a little rough being a gold investor. In today’s article Dominic Frisby is certainly feeling that way. Sometimes it can be all too easy to get caught up in the day to day chat around prices. Some forget that the reasons why they invested are still strong, even if it feels like the price isn’t. Frisby reminds us that ‘We know government finances do not pass basic safety standards. We know there’s too much

An Empire Self-Destructs - Jeff Thomas
Empires are built through the creation or acquisition of wealth. The Roman Empire came about through the productivity of its people and its subsequent acquisition of wealth from those that it invaded. The Spanish Empire began with productivity and expanded through the use of its large armada of ships, looting the New World of its gold. The British Empire began through localized productivity and grew through its creation of colonies worldwide – colonies that it exploited, bringing the weal

Shanghai Gold Exchange to offer yuan-back futures contract in Budapest
By Maggie Zhang South China Morning Post, Hong Kong Wednesday, June 21, 2017 China is looking to expand the use of its yuan-denominated gold fix overseas, the chairman of the mainland China's sole gold bourse said today, reflecting on Beijing's attempt to vie for a bigger say in the price-setting of the precious metal. It is now expected that a gold futures contract based on China's yuan-backed gold benchmark price could be listed on the Budapest Stock Exchange in Hungary as soon as the second h

Valuation Anomalies Suggest Historic Precious Metal Lows
Today, we’re going to start with an interview with billionaire Frank Giustra – perhaps, Canada’s most famous mining stock promoter.  Who, in this interview, comes as close to accusing gold of being manipulated as mainstream investors are “allowed.” Do you think the gold market is manipulated? No, I don’t think it is manipulated.  Manipulation is a strong word. But I do believe it is managed, by the policy makers who need to keep confidence in a system when it goes sideways.  Any major spike in t

Gold Price Slips vs. Falling Dollar as Oil Bounces, Bank of England Split Boosts 'Brexit-Hit' Pound
GOLD  PRICES held near 5-week lows against a falling US Dollar on Wednesday, trading at $1243 per ounce as commodities rallied but world stock markets extended Tuesday's retreat in New York. As Brent crude oil rallied $1 per barrel from yesterday's 7-month lows near $45, that pulled the EuroStoxx 50 index of major European shares more than 1% lower. The British Pound meantime rallied aft

My Newest “Most Likely To Catalyze The Big One”
Today’s article is one of my scariest yet; as, after watching events unfold in the world’s most notorious geopolitical hotspot in recent weeks, it’s difficult to come up, using my best Spock-like logic, with an alternative conclusion to the potentially catastrophic one I’ll discuss today.  Which, if it occurs, may catalyze not only the financial “big one” we all know is coming, but an era of political, geopolitical, economic, and monetary destabilization unlike; and potentially, unparalleled in

Rebound after Correction
Bitcoin is down from the all-time high but not really down significantly. In an article on CNBC, we read: Bitcoin quickly bounced back from the lows of June, amid improved sentiment about the future of the digital currency. Bitcoin traded higher Saturday near $2,680, up more than 20 percent from a June low of $2,185.96 hit Thursday that had erased gains for the month, according to CoinDesk. Worries about overexuberance in digital currencies overall and heated debate among developers about how to

The Most PiMBEEB Transaction Of All-Time
Monday mornings can be daunting, in processing the massive amount of PiMBEEB – or Precious Metal bullish, everything-else-bearish – news since my last publication, 72 hours earlier.  This, amidst a world where government-commandeered “markets” signal nothing but the madness they have created, and the carnage that must surely ensue – as if generational economic weakness; the highest-ever debt load; the largest-ever industrial oversupply; the lowest-ever cumulative purchasing power; and the highes

Gold’s Pricing Power Moving East - Part 2
China excluded from the global gold price or arbitrage includes it?China is unhappy that gold prices should be driven by U.S. and dollar concerns. But many state that because there is no free flow of gold in and out of China, China will remain a parochial market, not integrated into the global gold market. Nothing is now further from the truth.The author has worked with successful arbitrageurs in London in the past, so we can clearly see that through the London and Shanghai Gold Exchanges via bu

Precious Metals VS. Crypto-Currency And Mainstream Investments-“Revisited”
Two days after the most suicidal, hubristically arrogant policy statement in FOMC history, by an institution desperate to maintain the dead propaganda meme of “growth”; and with it, the Cartel’s “response” – gold remains less than $20/oz below its 5½ year downtrend line, and $20/oz above its 200 week moving average; whilst silver – in my view, more undervalued than at any time in history – is just a buck below its 200 week moving average, but a full $0.65/oz above its 5½ year downtrend line.  In

The “Gold Sterilization” of 1937
Today, we will start investigating the U.S. recession of 1937, and along with that, claims that the Federal Reserve caused it by some sort of misbehavior. As is our usual practice, we will begin with just looking at some general information about that time. Industrial production had a short, sharp shock in 1937. Here’s what it looked like in terms of nominal GDP: I am not going to try to disentangle what was going on at that time. There were a lot of things, from the introduction of Social Sec
