5 Record Breaking Gemstones Even Billionaires Can’t Buy
As Elizabeth Taylor once said: “I adore wearing gems, but not because they are mine. You can't possess radiance, you can only admire it.” It’s a good philosophy, because when it comes to the world’s biggest, rarest and most extraordinary gemstone discoveries, no one—not even billionaire President Donald Trump—could afford the possession. We’re not talking about the average diamond engagement ring that sets you back $4,000 and was probably grown in a lab. And we’re not talking about the $3,000 ru

Silver Price Optimist or Pessimist?
DISCLOSURE:  This article was written for Miles Franklin by Gary Christenson. Miles Franklin sells silver and believes that silver is under-valued. Prices will rise in coming years. I share that belief. Regardless, this article presents both optimistic and pessimistic interpretations for future silver prices. SILVER  PRICES  OPTIMIST: DEMAND:  Silver demand increases every year and will push prices higher. Our modern world depends upon electronics, computers, missiles, fighter jets, cruise missi

Is Money Creation Fueling the Stock Market Surge?
Is it true that changes in money supply are an important driving force behind changes in the stock price indexes?Intuitively it makes sense to argue that an increase in the growth rate of money supply should strengthen the growth rate in stock prices.Conversely, a fall in the growth rate of money supply should slow down the growth momentum of stock prices. Some economists who follow the footsteps of the post-Keynesian (PK) school of economics have questioned the importance of money in driving st

The End Is Near
The doomsayers have been calling for recession for years. Mainstream economists laughed at them, painting a rosy picture. However, the recent plunge in the stock market strengthened the pessimists’ hand. They interpret the dive as a signal of a coming recession. Is the end of the stock market boom really near? What Lies Ahead? The recent stock market turmoil brought traders to their knees. We, of course, covered the descent for our readers, calling for calm. We urged investors not to panic about

Irredeemable Currency De-tooths Savers
Arbitrary Interest Rates In the past few weeks, we have argued that interest rates will not rise. We have made our arguments based on observable cases of soft credit demand that falls with rising rates, and analysis of the incentives on creditors and debtors. Ours is a case that rates can’t go up much, for long, because demand for credit won’t chase rates up. In the postwar period up to 1981, borrowers chased rates all the way up the moon. But not since then. Now, we want to make a theoretical a

Village of Widows
Canada has become a leader in the movement against the racism practiced against indigenous peoples that has so long been common practice in much of the world. Is it possible that Ottawa will really follow the lead of Alberta and other provinces by recognizing the rights given to aboriginal people in the Constitution without hassle? Such an act would shift cases out of courts into nation-on-nation negotiations. It’s taken 36 years since repatriation of our constitut

The Worst Threat We Face Is Right Here At Home
Last week, volatility made a long-overdue return to the US and global equity markets. It began with a 2-day back-to-back violent drop. Day 3 saw a big rebound, swiftly followed by two more days of gut-wrentching losses. And then finally, last Friday, the day saw massive swings both high and low, ending with a huge upside run. During this period the S&P 500 lost more than 300 points.  Since then, though, the market has been steadily rising. Is the danger past?  Are the markets safe once more?

Signs of the Times
Perspective We have been watching for credit conditions to deteriorate - enough to prompt the establishment to claim that there are no problems. It took a jump in long-dated rates and a hit to the stock markets to prompt some such defensive claims. The advice to ignore the break and focus on the economy seems naïve. In ordinary conditions the top of the stock market leads the peak in the economy by some 12 months. That is why the S&P is included in the formal list of "Leading Indicators" (number

The Right Question…
Last week I mentioned that my grandson Josh (Andy’s boy) was accepted at McGill University in Montreal, the University of Indiana’s business school and the University of Michigan.  He is interested in pursuing a degree in business and is taking all the requisite (advanced) classes in economics. He called me yesterday and asked me, “Which Fed Policy would be better, Quantitative Easing or Tapering and what can be done to make things better?”  Geese Louise!  When I was his age the only question I

Budget Issues Return To Spotlight As Next Debt Ceiling Circus Looms
Judging by the fact that you’re reading this, at some point you have probably been concerned about the financial condition of United States government. The publicly stated debt is now over $20 trillion, while Boston University economist Laurence Kotlikoff pegs the cost of unfunded liabilities at over $222 trillion! Not exactly ideal in an $18 trillion economy. And if there’s an accountant out there who can explain how it’s even feasibly possible that the debt could ever be repaid without default

Silver, Gold and the Dow
The gold to silver ratio hit 80 to 1 last week.  That is unusual – the 3rd highest in over 20 years.  It tells us: Silver prices are too low compared to gold. Silver falls harder than gold, and rises more rapidly in the late stages of a rally. Both gold and silver prices are too low. This is confirmed by the amount of global debt, the crazy heights of the stock market, low commodity prices, monetary nonsense, and political uncertainties. Both silver and gold bottomed in December 2015 and have r

Take It To The Bank: Interest Rates Won’t Rise
How Not to Predict Interest Rates We continue our hiatus from capital destruction to look further at interest rates. Last week, our Report was almost prescient. We said: The first thing we must say about this is that people should pick one: (A) rising stock market or (B) rising interest rates. They both cannot be true (though we could have falling rates and falling stocks). We write these Reports over the weekend. At the time of last week’s writing session, Friday’s close on the S&P was 2757 (fu

When will the next credit crisis occur?
The timing of any credit crisis is set by the rate at which the credit cycle progresses. People don’t think in terms of the credit cycle, wrongly believing it is a business cycle. The distinction is important, because a business cycle by its name suggests it emanates from business. In other words, the cycle of growth and recessions is due to instability in the private sector and this is generally believed by state planners and central bankers.This is untrue, because cycles of business activity h

Global Synchronized Bond Collapse
We have all heard, in ad nauseam fashion, Wall Street’s current favorite mantra touting a global synchronized economic recovery. For the record, global GDP growth for 2017 was 3.7%, according to the International Monetary Fund. And, although this is an improvement from recent years, you must take into account that in 2004 it was 4.4%, in 2005 it was 3.8%, in 2006 it was 4.3%, and in 2007 it was 4.2%. The Point being, it’s not as if the current rate of global growth has climbed to a level never b

Stock Selling Unleashed!
The unnaturally-tranquil stock markets suddenly plunged over this past week.  Volatility skyrocketed out of the blue and shattered years of artificial calm conjured by extreme central-bank distortions.  This was a huge shock to the legions of hyper-complacent traders, who are realizing stocks don’t rally forever.  With stock selling unleashed again, herd psychology will start shifting back to bearish which will fuel lots more selling. As a contrarian student of

Party On, Dudes 
As of this week, the shale oil miracle launched US oil production above the 1970 previous-all-time record at just over ten million barrels a day. Techno-rapturists are celebrating what seems to be a blindingly bright new golden age of energy greatness. Independent oil analyst Art Berman, who made the podcast rounds the last two weeks, put it in more reality-accessible terms: “Shale is a retirement party for the oil industry.” It was an impressive stunt and it had everything to do with the realit

Intervention in the Overnight Futures Market Turns the Tide on Stocks' Wild Ride
“In a world where success is the measure and justification of all things the figure of Him who was sentenced and crucified remains a stranger, and is at best the object of pity... Worldly history appeals in its own cause to the dictum that the end justifies the means. The figure of the Crucified invalidates all thought which takes success for its standard.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer “These people honour me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain; they follow rule
