Canary In The Coal Mine: Unfunded Liabilities Have Turned Illinois Into A “Banana Republic” On The Brink Of Bankruptcy
Illinois is the perfect example of what happens when your state is run by fiscally irresponsible dunces for decades. The state is buried debt, and hasn’t passed a budget in over 700 days. 100% of their monthly revenue is being consumed by court ordered payments, and the Illinois Department of Transportation has revealed that they may not be able to pay contractors (who are working on over 700 infrastructure projects) after July 1st if the state doesn’t pass a budget. To top it all off, the state

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

“Socialism Has Produced Some Very Powerful Millionaires”: As Venezuelans Starve In The Streets, The Elites Party On
It’s always funny to debate socialists on the merits of their ideology. If you point to a country like Venezuela, and say “See! This is what socialism leads to,” they’ll no doubt claim that it isn’t a real example of socialism. But if you went back in time by just a few years, you’d find that their perception of Venezuela was quite different. Celebrities like Sean Penn, Oliver Stone, and Danny Glover praised the regime not too long ago, as did intellectuals like Noam Chomsky. Six years ago, Bern

Journalist Warns Of North Korean EMP Threat: Even “High-Profile National Security People Are Talking About It”
If you asked the average person about what threat North Korea poses to the United States, they’ll probably respond with a blank stare. The few who happen to pay attention to the news, will likely mention North Korea’s nuclear program, as well as their efforts to develop long range ballistic missiles that could one day reach the United States. That’s pretty much all most Americans know about North Korea’s capabilities, because that’s all they hear about from the media. The truth however is much m

The Pin To Pop This Mother Of All Bubbles?
Global macro economic data has been weak for many years, but there’s now a very real chance of a world-wide recession happening in 2017. Why? A dramatic and worsening shortfall in new credit creation.  The world’s major central banks have, again, done the world an enormous disservice.  Instead of admitting that maybe/perhaps/possibly the practice of issuing debt at more than twice the rate of underlying economic growth was a very bad idea over the past several decades, they instead doubled down

This Insubstantial Pageant Faded...
We are living in a dream-world. All so-called money in the world is dream-money that consists of digits issued by Central Banks; the so-called "Reserves" of these Central Banks consist of digits issued by a small group of official digit-issuers, the Central Banks of the US, the Euro area, England, Japan, Switzerland and now recently, of China. Now a select group of digit-issuers, which are not Central Banks, have come into the dream-money world: the principal one is the group of so-called "min

Illinois Sends ‘Dear Contractor’ Letters
The state of Illinois has not passed a budget for close to three years. Arguably it’s just as well because Illinois budgets for decades have been nothing but a moth-eaten collection of lies, one time deficits repeated endlessly, and financial wizardry statements designed to disguise Illinois’ real problems: failure to rein in spending coupled with a very business unfriendly environment. As Illinois’ bond rating careens towards junk, Illinois Unpaid Bills Jumped to $14.3 Billion. Today, the state

Gold The CIA Go Back A Long Time - Nico Simons
Question Is the CIA involved with the world gold market? About the CIA (1) The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was established by the National Security Act of 1947 as an independent agency under the direction of the National Security Council. Its principal mission was to “correlate and evaluate intelligence (from around the world) relating to the national security, and provide for the appropriate dissemination of such intelligence within the Government.” One of the main objectives in cr

ECB shifts some reserves to yuan from U.S. dollars
Reuters/Balazs Koranyi/06-13-17 The European Central Bank has switched 500 million euros worth of its U.S. dollar reserves to yuan, reflecting the increased use of the Chinese currency and Beijing’s importance as one of the euro area’s largest trading partners, it said on Tuesday. “The ECB sold a small portion of its US dollar holdings, which remain the largest portfolio, leaving the overall size of the ECB’s foreign reserves unchanged. “The ECB’s foreign reserves now comprise US dollars, Japane

Batty Ideas: Boiling Frogs and BATs
The widely believed boiling frog theory says if put a frog in boiling water it will jump out but if you slowly raise the temperature it will stay in until it dies. The theory is wrong, frogs will not stay in water to be slowly boiled to death. Nonetheless, the boil them slowly idea lingers on in many forms. For example, Rep. Kevin Brady Floats 5-Year Phase-In of Border Adjustment Tax. The top House Republican tax legislator floated a five-year phase-in to his controversial “border adjustment”

There are only two other times in history when stocks were more expensive than today
We are having a hard time finding high-quality companies at attractive valuations. For us, this is not an academic frustration. We are constantly looking for new stocks by running stock screens, endlessly reading (blogs, research, magazines, newspapers), looking at holdings of investors we respect, talking to our large network of professional investors, attending conferences, scouring for ideas published on value-investor networks, and finally, looking with frustration at our large (and growing)

  WILL GOLD REACH $2.6 MILLION OR JUST $150,000
Last week, we were again reminded of the global instability and disequilibrium. In the UK, the conservative Prime Minister Theresa May decided 9 weeks ago to call an election. This was done due to the conservatives being 20 percentage points ahead of their Labour rivals in the opinion polls which would have led to a strong backing for the Brexit negotiations as well as another five years in power. But things went disastrously wrong. An extremely badly run campaign by Mrs May and an opportunistic

GSB Weekly Review: FED Hikes, Dollar Climbs, Gold Slides
Gold and Silver Commentary: Gold bottomed in December of 2015 and again in December 2016, but gold prices have risen for the past six months.  The 50 day moving average (gold, but not yet silver) has crossed above the 200 day moving average – a so-called “golden cross.”  Expect higher prices for both gold and silver. Gold should move higher for several years given the increasingly dangerous global economic conditions, low interest rates and continual fiat currency devaluations.  A major stock ma

Don’t Fear The Robots, Fear Low Savings And Investment
(This item originally appeared at Forbes.com on June 14, 2017.) https://www.forbes.com/sites/nathanlewis/2017/06/14/dont-fear-the-robots-fear-low-savings-and-investment/#12c4f1e32f79 Ever since the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, in the 1780s, mechanization has been destroying jobs. That is not only its aftereffect, but its primary purpose, also known as “labor-saving.” Over time, it is practically inevitable that some better, cheaper, faster way will be found to do some existing task.

ECB buys renminbi for reserves
The Financial Times reports this morning that the European Central Bank gave a “seal of approval” to the Chinese renminbi with a purchase of 500 million euros worth  of the currrency for its reserves – a small transaction but with “huge symbolic significance.”  It is also important symbolically that the ECB sold dollars to purchase the renminbi. This ECB purchase may be the most important development to date with respect to China’s establishing the yuan as a global reserve currency, and a respon

Gold Prices Jump as Dollar Falls Before Fed on Weak US Data
GOLD PRICES popped to a 4-session high at $1277 per ounce Wednesday lunchtime in London as the US Dollar sank ahead of the Federal Reserve's long-expected June interest-rate decision following weaker-than-forecast economic data. US retail sales fell in May, down 0.3% from April to defy analyst predictions of a slight rise. Consumer price inflation also slowed, pulling the official index 0.1% low
