  Supply Side Economics – 42 Years Later – Paul Craig Roberts 
Supply-Side economics burst onto the economic policy scene in Washington, D.C., on September 21, 1975 in the Sunday Washington Star in an article I had written for US Representative Jack Kemp that provided a supply-side economic basis for his capital formation bill. Subsequently, I generalized the supply-side approach when I realized that changes in marginal tax rates altered relative prices and could shift the aggregate supply side curve. Until that time, economists assumed that fiscal policy o

Commodity Prices in US Dollars 1831-1881, Gold @US$20.67 
All prices for all commodities were remarkably stable during this period in which gold was fixed at US$20.67 per ounce by the US Treasury from the time of our country's founding. Gold remained at that price until Congress surrendered its authority to the Federal Reserve in 1913. So, an ounce of gold would have exchanged for 20 silver dollars. This means of commerce would have been accurately termed a "Gold Coin Exchange Standard", and NOT a "gold standard", as the money was in the hands of the p

  The Gold Industry is in a Deep State of Dysfunction, Delusion and Denial - Stewart Dougherty 
In 1980, the Financial Deep State realized that there existed an extraordinary opportunity for serial plunder and profiteering: the manipulation of the gold and silver markets. They immediately mobilized to exploit it. During the subsequent 37+ years (we are now well into the 38th), the Deep State manipulators have criminally looted the gold and silver markets, pocketing astronomical profits for themselves in the process, all of which have come from real victims on the other sides of their fraud

History of Gold
(-1780) Gold and Silver in the Code of Hammurabi 
When Anu the Sublime, King of the Anunaki, and Bel, the lord of Heaven and earth, who decreed the fate of the land, assigned to Marduk, the over-ruling son of Ea, God of righteousness, dominion over earthly man, and made him great among the Igigi, they called Babylon by his illustrious name, made it great on earth, and founded an everlasting kingdom in it, whose foundations are laid so solidly as those of heaven and earth; then Anu and Bel called by name me, Hammurabi, the exalted prince, who feared God, to bring about the rule of righteousness in the land, to destroy the wicked and the evil-doers; so that the strong should not harm the weak; so that I should rule over the black-headed people like Shamash, and enlighten the land, to further the well-being of mankind.

“Financial Crisis” Coming By End Of 2018 – Prepare Urgently
“Financial Crisis Of Historic Proportions” Is “Bearing Down On Us” John Mauldin of Mauldin Economics latest research note, Prepare for Turbulence, is excellent and a must read warning about the coming financial crisis. Mind refreshed from what sounds like a wonderful honeymoon and having had the time to read some books outside his “comfort zone” he has come to the conclusion that we are on the verge of  a “major financial crisis, if not later this year, then by the end of 2018 at the latest.” So

Want to Predict a Market Crash? Use Dr. X's Bubble Detector
Authored by Steve H. Hanke of the Johns Hopkins University. Follow him on Twitter @Steve_Hanke. When the Dow breached the historic 20,000 mark, it was as if we had entered a brave new world without bears, business cycles, or traditional red flags. With the Dow at over 21,000 today, this raises the question: are we in a bubble? Wall Street’s new paradigm reminds me of a similarly Panglossian time: the late 1920s, when Yale Professor Irving Fisher, perhaps the greatest economist of his era, confid

The End Of The Cycle: “The Government Will Gladly Enter A War To Cleanse The Balance Sheet And Cull The Herd”
In the days following the 241st anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the country is in an even more precarious position than it was in 1776.  We face a situation of a fiat currency about to collapse as the consumer-based economy follows.  Whether orchestrated by our imperialistic government or following actions of a hostile foreign nation (prompted or unprompted) the government will gladly enter a war to “cleanse” the balance sheet and cull the herd.  Concurrently, the

Silver Flash Smash was a 'Glitch'- SKG Comment
Last night, unofficial comments from sources were framing the flash crash event as  a 'glitch'  and  they were  ' all over' solving it. This implies there was no person or fat fingered banker spoofing the market. It also implies that the "problem" was electronic. Indeed we think it was. But electronic in what way?

Manipulation /Management : Controlling the Gold Price
There is much talk of price management/manipulation in almost all markets. These charges are met with denial, silence and scorn. There are several aspects of markets that can give the opportunity to manage/manipulate prices. Often we think of market manipulation solely in terms of heavy buyers and/or sellers overwhelming the markets.

'Fat Finger' Hits Comex Silver Price as London OTC Hits 18-Year High, LME Tries Gold Futures Again
TRADING in Comex silver futures contracts was hit Friday by what dealers and analysts called a 'fat finger' error, knocking the metal down more than $1 per ounce to a sudden 15-month low at the start of Japanese hours. A trade worth some $450 million in September and December silver futures saw those contracts plunge over 11%, immediately jumping back above $15.80 and rallying further as physical trading opened in London's wholesale market.

Gold Stocks’ Summer Bottom
The gold miners’ stocks have drifted lower over the past month, slumping back to major support.  This weakness has naturally intensified the bearish psychology engulfing this small contrarian sector, traders want nothing to do with it.  Yet summers typically see gold and its miners’ stocks meander sideways to lower.  These summer doldrums spawn the best seasonal buying opportunities of the year in gold stocks. Seasonality is the tendency for prices to exhibit r

Time for a new gold standard for Asia
Over half the world’s population, living in the Eurasian land mass, understands that gold is money. The leaders of the Asian nations also know that this is true as well. The leaders of the security and economic alliance of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, which now incorporates most of these peoples, also know that to become independent of Western hegemony and to forge their own way, they must abandon Western financial systems and markets, replacing them with a new monetary order, serving

  Understanding money and prices
This article explains the money side of prices, and why government currencies, unbacked by gold, are doomed to collapse. And why gold, which is the sound money chosen by markets throughout history, will retain or increase its purchasing power measured in the goods it buys over the coming years.Very few people have a full understanding of the relationship between money and goods. This is the relationship that sets prices. Yet, without that understanding, central banks will almost certainly fail i
