Print till it Dies
The US Dollar has had a wonderful run in its life time. Not too many fiat currencies have had the ability to sustain its usage for as long as this mighty experiment has and all who have reported on this instrument of trade are pretty much pointing to the same outcome that it can’t last much longer. Today, the US Dollar trade sits at 93.55 down 8.6 points in the early morning on this Columbus Day. Not too long ago the dollar broke thru a multiyear downside target of 91.88 which originally happene

Western Australia's Liberal Party to block gold royalty increase
Labor's $392 million gold royalty hike has been killed off, with Liberal MPs voting to block the controversial measure in the Upper House of Parliament. The move, which comes after hundreds of gold miners rallied at State Parliament this morning, will mean the State Government will be required to plug a near-$400 million hole in the budget. Opposition Leader Mike Nahan said the decision had been reached based on the concerns about job losses. "It was our view that Mr McGowan did not seek or have

  No Joy in Trumpville
I took advantage of the calm before the storm, to pay a visit on Saturday to my hometown, Trumpville, a.k.a. Manhattan. My college buddy had a son who was acting in an off-Broadway play (closing night, so don’t bother asking). The city I knew as a kid — which, frankly, I never liked very much — seemed as lost and far away as Peter Stuyvesant’s quaint Dutch colonial outpost did to me in 1962. That lost city of my childhood was one in which a boy could breeze right into the Metropolitan Museum of

Stocks Up and Yields Down, Gold and Silver Report 8 Oct 2017
Many gold bugs make an implicit assumption. Gold is good, therefore it will go up. This is tempting but wrong (ignoring that gold does not go anywhere, it’s the dollar that goes down). One error is in thinking that now you have discovered a truth, everyone else will see it quickly. And there is a subtler error. The error is to think good things must go up. Sometimes they do, but why? First, we think it’s a cop-out to say, “well it’s all subjective.” If it were all subjective, then there would be

Global Outlook – Mad, Mad, Mad, MAD World: News in Charts
by  Alarm bells are ringing for economic fundamentalists such as Fathom Consulting. Asset prices look increasingly out of step with fundamentals, and in some cases they look downright bubbly. And other geopolitical developments are similarly alarming. One might even describe them as… Mad: Equity prices in developed economies, and specifically in the US, are more than one standard deviation higher than their long-run average in relation to nominal GDP.

The upcoming increase in interest rates
Last week, both Janet Yellen of the Fed and Mark Carney of the Bank of England prepared financial markets for interest rate increases. The working assumption should be that this was coordinated, and that both the ECB and the Bank of Japan must be considering similar moves.Central banks coordinate their monetary policies as much as possible, which is why we can take the view we are about to embark on a new policy phase of higher interest rates. The intention of this new phase must be to normalise

Catalan Independence: Why The Collective Hates It When People Walk Away
This report was originally published by Brandon Smith at Alt-Market.com I have written many times in the past about the singular conflict at the core of most human crises and disasters, a conflict that sabotages human endeavor and retards critical thought. This conflict not only stems from social interaction, it also exists within the psyche of the average individual. It is an inherent contradiction of the human experience that at times can fuel great accomplishment, but usually leads to great

Getting Schooled in Freedom
Hello Silver and Gold holders. I truly appreciate the chance to write for Miles Franklin and hope that you read, learn, and enjoy, the viewpoints from the new writers in our tribe. No one individual has it all down but as a team, we’re able to work thru the articles and news (so called) being pummeled out there by media groups failing at every turn to report anything factual within the financial arenas as well as the Middle American view. This truly is the topic of freedom in all its aspects and

Albert Edwards “Fed is a Slave to the SP 500”: Would Kevin Warsh Change That?
Society General’s Albert Edwards was at the Bank Credit Analyst annual conference in New York last week. Also in attendance were Larry Summers, Paul Volcker, and potentially the next Fed Chair, ex Fed-Governor Kevin Warsh. Edwards’ email comments on Warsh and Summers ring a bell with me. I was the first speaker and afterward I enjoyed listening to every other speaker at the two-day event. Most notable of the outside economics speakers were Paul Volker, Larry Summers, and most significantly fo
