How Gold Performs During Periods of Deflation, Disinflation, Runaway Stagflation and Hyperinflation…
Amid the global crisis in confidence, investors seem to be rediscovering the fact that gold has been used as money for thousands of years. In periods where black swans are no singular occurrences but are practically coming in flocks, the status of gold as a safe haven has yet again proven its worth. - Ronald-Peter Stoferle, The Erste Group

Why Base Your Money On Gold? A Simple Answer For First-Timers
The United States embraced the principle of a gold standard – a dollar whose value was linked to a defined quantity of gold – from 1789 to 1971, a stretch of 182 years. During this time, the U.S. was the most successful of any major country, expanding from thirteen war-ravaged states along the Atlantic

Say's Law for Our Time 
How many times have you heard the unthinking comment that we need to keep consumption burning brightly because "consumption is two-thirds of GDP"? There it is, after all, in black and white. If you look up the GDP release, you see that, in 2001, nominal GDP was $10 trillion dollars and change, while personal consumption expenditures were a touch under $7 trillion.

  Brexit, Gold and Harold Wilson's 'Pound in Your Pocket', 50 Years On
How the 1967 devaluation of Sterling killed the Gold Standard... THIS WEEKEND will mark 50 years since Harold Wilson's infamous devaluation of Sterling, writes Adrian Ash at BullionVault. Hoping to cut the trade deficit by making imports dearer and exports cheaper, the Labour prime minister claimed that the "Pound in your pocket" hadn't been devalued, only its internatio

Gold Miners’ Q3’17 Fundamentals
The gold miners’ stocks have spent months adrift, cast off in the long shadow of the Trumphoria stock-market rally.  This vexing consolidation has left a wasteland of popular bearishness.  But once a quarter earnings season arrives, bright fundamental sunlight dispelling the obscuring sentiment fogs.  The major gold miners’ just-reported Q3’17 results prove this sector remains strong fundamentally, and super-undervalued. Four times a year publicly-traded compan

The Size Of The Financial Avalanche Coming Grows Larger - Dave Kranzler
Inflation vs deflation. The true economic definition of “inflation” is the rate of increase in the money supply in excess of the rate of increase in wealth output. Inflation is monetary in nature. Rising prices are the manifestation of inflation. Someone I follow on Twitter posted an ingenious example from which to conceptualize the true concept of inflation using the game of Monopoly: The players all start out with reasonable amounts of money to speculate on real estate. As the game proce

Why Litecoin is Massively Undervalued vs Bitcoin
With all of the chatter about Bitcoin forks, few people remember that Litecoin (LTC) was actually one of the first forks of Bitcoin (BTC). Unlike Segwit2x, it was not a hostile or contentious fork that sought to replace Bitcoin. It was an open-source fork launched during October of 2011, by Charlie Lee. Charlie views Litecoin as silver to Bitcoin as gold. Litecoin had some key differences when it launched including: 4x as many coins (84 million vs. 21 million for Bitcoin) 1/4 the block confirma

  On the use of gold coins as money 
Why don’t humans use gold coins as Money ? The answer is quite simple : because they don’t want to, under present circumstances. The attachment of humans to gold is remarkable; I suspect there is something metaphysical about gold that attracts human beings. Perhaps gold is part of the natural order of things, part of the Rerum Natura, and the relationship of humans to gold is “built-in”into human nature, like sexual attraction.

James Ledbetter Wants To Convince You That Gold Is Folly, Superstition And Madness
(This item originally appeared at on October 26, 2017.)   The purpose of James Ledbetter’s new book, One Nation Under Gold (2017) is to convince you that anything to do with gold – especially basing your money on it – is folly, superstition, mania, obsession, and madness. We know this because he tells us so, in the introduction: Fixing ou

Bitcoin Price Target of $7,850 by November 16th
Bitcoin has enjoyed a massive breakout during 2017, up over 500% year to date from $960 to the current price of $5,750. It briefly hit an all-time high near $6,200 last week, but has since corrected nearly 10%. The main driver of the price advance was the Bitcoin Gold fork, as investors were looking to increase their exposure to Bitcoin prior to the snapshot in order to get free Bitcoin Gold. Once the fork date passed, the correction ensued, with the price dropping toward $5,400, before bouncing

  Gold and Silver as Standards of Value 
All the usurpation, and tyranny, and extortion, and robbery, and fraud, that are involved in the monopoly of money are practised, and attempted to be justified, under the pretence of maintaining the standard of value. This pretence is intrinsically a false one throughout. And the whole motive for it is to afford some color of justification for such a monopoly of money as will enable the few holders of gold and silver coins (or of such other money as may be specially licensed and substituted for them) to extort, in exchange for them, more of other men’s property than the coins (or their substitutes) are naturally and truly worth. That such is the fact, it is the purpose of this article to prove.

  What 10-Baggers (and 100-Baggers) Look Like 
Now that it appears clear the bottom is in for gold, it’s time to stop fretting about how low prices will drop and how long the correction will last—and start looking at how high they’ll go and when they’ll get there. When viewing the gold market from a historical perspective, one thing that’s clear is that the junior mining stocks tend to fluctuate between extreme boom and bust cycles. As a group, they’ll double in price, then crash by 75%... then double or triple or even quadruple again, onl

October 2, 2017: One Nation Under Gold (2017), by James Ledbetter October 14, 2017: One Nation Under Gold #2: The Silliness of the Bretton Woods Years Now, we will follow Ledbetter’s account of the end of Bretton Woods in 1971, up to the present. The account of the 1971 devaluation was, following the pattern of this book, long on details but short on insight. It seemed to people at the time that they “had no choice,” that

Mexico's Past, the World's Future Currency Devaluations
It seems the world is doomed to repeat the same mistakes, from wars to large economic shocks that could have been avoided. All this, without a doubt, is the responsibility of leaders, who are often blinded by today's apparent prosperity, or by the desire to postpone the inevitable, leading entire nations to what will eventually end in tragedy. The influential forces that these leaders possess,

  The Fed Is Confused about What Drives Inflation
On October 4 2017, the former governor of the Federal Reserve Daniel Tarullo in a speech at the Brookings think-tank in Washington said Fed policy makers do not have a reliable theory of what drives inflation. According to Tarullo, central bankers should pay less attention to theoretical models and more to actual data. However, how is it possible to make any sense of the data without having a reliable theory?The Importance of TheoryOne purpose of a theory is to enable one to ascertain the defini

  The Gold-Backed-Oil-Yuan Futures Contract Myth
On September 1, 2017, the Nikkei Asian Review published an article titled, “China sees new world order with oil benchmark backed by gold”, written by Damon Evans. Just below the headline in the introduction it states, “China is expected shortly to launch a crude oil futures contract priced in yuan and convertible into gold in what analysts say could be a game-changer for the industry”. Not long after the Nikkei piece was released ‘the story’ was widely copied in sensational analyses throughout t

October 2, 2017: One Nation Under Gold (2017), by James Ledbetter Ledbetter glided quickly over the period from 1914 to 1931, taking up the story again in earnest with the British devaluation of 1931 and, especially, the U.S. devaluation of 1933. This was treated with some interesting detail. However, Ledbetter made almost no mention of the fact that the U.S. returned to gold at the beginning of 1934 at $35/oz., and

Tokenization of Gold
The Blockchain technology enables tokenization of gold. What does it mean for the precious metals market? Usually, investors consider precious metals and cryptocurrencies as substitutes, as the value of both asset classes depends on the level of faith in the national fiat currencies. However, a few cryptocurrencies backed by gold exist, potentially creating some synergies. For example, there is OneGram, which is a sharia-compliant cryptocurrency backed by gold. It means that each token is backed

Gold Miners’ Q3’17 Preview
With the third quarter’s earnings season now underway, the gold miners will soon join in and report their latest results.  No data is more highly anticipated by investors, for good reason.  Quarterly reports dispel the dense fogs of herd sentiment that usually obscure gold stocks, revealing their operations’ underlying fundamental realities.  Q3’17’s upcoming results are likely to prove quite bullish for this neglected sector.
