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

GDX Weathers Stock Selloff
The gold miners’ stocks weathered the recent stock-market plunge really well.  As evident in their leading GDX ETF, they were already beaten down before stock markets started falling.  The resulting explosion of fear bled into GDX, forcing it even lower.  Nevertheless, no major technical damage was done.  GDX remained well within its consolidation trend channel and is still within striking distance of a major $25 breakout. Gold stocks’ behavior during stock-mar

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

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

3 Things You MUST Know to Protect Your Money (Even If You Know Nothing About the Market)
This article was originally published by Anonymous Financial Guy at The Organic Prepper In this economic climate, lots of folks are wondering how to protect their money. Some people are forced to invest in retirement funds by their employers, others play the market, some invest on their own, and nearly everyone has checking and savings accounts. But when the amount of money you have goes beyond something you could live off for a month or two, how do you deal with it wisely while minimizing your

Will Hawkish Fed and Strong Payrolls Blow Out Gold Rally
At the end of last week, gold encountered a couple of headwinds. Will they topple the yellow metal? First Gust of Wind: Fed As we predicted, the last FOMC meeting turned out to be more hawkish than expected. On January 30, we wrote: (…) the Fed has its own meeting this week. We could see a hawkish strike, especially that it will be the last Yellen’s meeting and she has nothing to lose. The changing composition of the policy committee could also point to a more aggressive pace of rate hikes in 20

Wage Inflation is Finally here, and it’s Toxic for the Fed
Even uber-doves are now looking over their shoulder. There have been all kinds of carefully phrased semi-hawkish statements emanating from carefully contained semi-hawkish Fed governors recently. Today, Dallas Fed President Robert Kaplan repeated what he has been saying for a while – that the “base case” should be three rate hikes this year, and that there could be four, warning, “if we wait to see actual inflation, we’ll be too late.” But it’s the most fervent “doves” – when they start getting

It's Looking A Lot Like 2008 Now...
Economic and market conditions are eerily like they were in late 2007/early 2008. Remember back then? Everything was going great.  Home prices were soaring. Jobs were plentiful. The great cultural marketing machine was busy proclaiming that a new era of permanent prosperity had dawned, thanks to the steady leadership of Alan Greenspan and later Ben Bernanke. And only a small cadre of cranks, like me, was singing a different tune; warning instead that a painful reckoning in our financial system w

Blue Monday -
"It was a time of terrible suffering. The contradictions were so obvious that it didn’t take a very bright person to realize something was terribly wrong.  And people blamed themselves, not the system.  They felt they had been at fault. People who were independent, who thought they were masters and mistresses of their lives, were all of a sudden dependent on others.  Relatives or relief. People of pride went into shock and sanitoriums. My mother was one. What I learned during the Depression cha

Raising Rates Reflect Bigger Debt Not Faster Growth
While investors are justifiably focused on what may be the opening crescendo of a long overdue sell-off in stocks, there is not, as of yet, as feverish a discussion of the parallel sell-offs in bonds and the U.S. dollar, which have been underway for at least a year and a half in bonds and 14 months for the dollar. I contend that this should be widely understood as the root causes of the jittery Dow, and are ultimately far more important. A continued decline in the dollar and bonds holds the pote

Fines against bullion banks for market rigging vindicate GATA, Sprott says
Reviewing last week's market action in an interview with Craig Hemke for Sprott Money News, mining entrepreneur Eric Sprott remarks that the details of Friday's U.S. jobs report were actually not very good. Sprott adds that the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission's fining last week of three European bullion banks for gold and silver market manipulation since 2008 vindicates GATA and others who have complained about such manipulation. The interview with Sprott is 16 minutes long and can be

Gold Price -$10 on Strongest US Wage Inflation Since Jan '09 But Fed 'Behind the Curve'
GOLD PRICES sank $10 inside 30 minutes Friday lunchtime in London as new US data showed a stronger-than-expected rise in new jobs plus the largest annual rise in average wages since January 2009. The Dollar jumped on the FX market, extending an overnight rally begun as the Bank of Japan became the first central bank amid 2018's sell-off of government bonds to step into the market and buy in a bid to stem the resulting surge in longer-term intere

What Does it Mean, Saving Rate drops to 12-Year Low when 50 of Americans Don’t Have Savings
Or what the averages are hiding. We will start with income and see what’s left over, and for whom. Personal income increased by 4.1% in December from a year earlier, the Bureau of Economic Analysis reported today. This includes all income received by all persons from all sources, such as from labor, financial assets (dividends and interest income but not capital gains), business activities, homeownership (rentals), government transfers, etc. “Real” personal income — adjusted for inflation via “c

Gold Stocks: An Inflationary Money Train
Technically and fundamentally, gold is poised to resume its magnificent rally that is taking investors into what I call a “bull era.” The next FOMC meeting announcement is tomorrow. I expect the Fed to strongly signal more rate hikes and ramped up quantitative easing. There’s an outside chance that bank deregulation is addressed, but that’s likely going to happen in the next meeting. Regardless, everything the Fed is doing is positive for inflation, negative for government bonds, and negative

  An Inquiry Into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of States (2014), by Arthur Laffer, Stephen Moore, Rex Sinquefield, and Travis Brown
I’ve been continuing my catch-up on the state of all things taxation with An Inquiry Into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of States (2014), by Arthur Laffer, Stephen Moore, Rex Sinquefield, and Travis Brown. I am somewhat embarrassed to say that I haven’t gotten to this until now, although I bought the book some time ago and have had it standing by. This is a good book. It has the kind of practical approach — a “what the heck is really going on here” stance — that I find very refreshing. A l
