The origin of cycles
It was Karl Marx who was among the first believers that cyclical behaviour was endemic to free markets.He lived through a time when there was a regular cycle of boom and bust, with phases of economic expansion followed by contraction. Workers were employed and then unemployed, and the only way this could be stopped, in Marxian economics, was for the workers to acquire the means of production, or more correctly, the state to do so on their behalf.Other economists, such as Jevons and Wicksell, rec

Mineral Specimen Collecting: Silver and Gold
For the last 20 years, the author has been visiting mines, mineral fairs, and mineral dealers to purchase and self collect minerals from over 40 countries to date. One of his guiding inspirations was Peter Bancroft's excellent book Gem and Crystal Treasures which describes Bancroft's selection of the 100 localities for the worlds best mineral specimens. This essay will describe some of the background and history of famous localities, and the minerals found there. It is

What the Stock Market Decline Means for Gold and Gold Stocks
It was a rough week for investors in stocks and stocks of all kinds. The S&P 500 lost 5%. Emerging Markets also lost 5%. Gold Stocks, which had weakened before the broader equity market have been hit hard. They (GDX, GDXJ) also lost 5% last week. The HUI Gold Bugs Index (which excludes royalty companies unlike GDX) lost 7%. After a strong start to the year, gold stocks have essentially given back all their gains. Nevertheless, we remain extremely optimistic on gold stocks over the next 12-18 mon

Trouble In The Stock Market?
In the past two weeks the tone of the stock market has changed considerably. Quickly gone are the days where the stock market is only expected to go up, as many have become concerned after several days of sizable declines. Whether this is the beginning of a bigger crash that so many in the Austrian community have forecast for years, or just another alarm to which Wall Street hits the snooze button remains to be seen. Yet it certainly is interesting to see just how quickly sentiment has changed.

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

Pivotal Events
Perspective "Rational Exuberance". We started using the phrase in December 2016, because of the new Pro-Business Administration. On the big technical surges, we dropped the "Rational". The DJIA zoom has reached a Weekly RSI of 92. As noted last week, the highest reached for the Nasdaq in the Dot-Com mania was 84. Also, the Fibonacci has reached a possible target, built upon the major swings since the panic ended in March 2009. Clearly, "Irrational Exuberance". The NYXBT (NYSE Bitcoin Index) soar

Trump Tax Cuts Have Postponed Economic Collapse: “The U.S. Has Become The Tax Haven Of The World”
The last several years have seen massive gains for both stock market and digital currency investors with prices hitting unprecedented levels of growth. But one particular asset class, despite its necessity for day-to-day global activities, has been totally ignored by the general investing public. According to venture capital financier Carlo Civelli, there are varying reasons for why mining companies involved in commodity metals like copper, zinc, gold and silver have been either stagnant or seen

Oil Set to Tank: Bear Strategies to Profit from It
Oil charts are showing that the commodity is set to decline, says technical analyst Clive Maund, who discusses trading strategies. The sharp drop in the bond market and stock market late last week, especially on Friday, is believed to mark the start of a long and brutal bear market, exacerbated by the attempt to deleverage massive debt. Since bear markets are not noted for being characterized by expansion in demand, the onset of a severe recession or dep

Why Good Economics Requires Good Theory
It is generally held that by means of statistical and mathematical methods one can organize historical data into a useful body of information, which in turn can serve as the basis for the assessments of the state of the economy. It is also held that the knowledge secured from the assessment of the data is likely to be of a tentative nature since it is not possible to know the true nature of the facts of reality.Some economists such as Milton Friedman held that since it is not possible to establi

Debate Over Food Inflation: What's the Real Story?
Is food a bargain or are prices rising far faster than the BLS says they are? The above image is from the Visual Capitalist via ZeroHedge a Decade of Grocery Prices for 30 Common Items. Is the chart accurate? I have no reason to believe otherwise. In fact, it supports my contention that food is a bargain. Annualized Rate of Inflation 16 of 30 Items Annualized Inflation Under 2% 16 of the 30 items listed by the Visual Capitalist have prices rising less than 2% per year. Foods that Store Easily N

The Fed’s Passive Aggressive Play
Singing the song of rising rates Last week, we took a break from the theme of the consumption of capital, for our annual Outlook 2018 report. We are going to leave the topic for one more week, while we address a market move which is on everyone’s mind. Are interest rates now in a rising cycle? The Fed has been singing the song of rising rates since Yellen hinted at it in September 2014. The Fed’s first hike was December 2015. Here is a graph showing the Fed Funds Rate, which the Fed controls, wi

Geologist Peter Megaw's Golden Touch in His Search for District-Scale Mines
High-grade and district-scale are geologist Peter Megaw's mantra. We look into some of the projects he devotes his attention to right now.

(MAG:TSX; MAG:NYSE.MKT), led the geological team that found MAG's Juanicipio project, now a joint venture with Fresnillo Plc (FRES:LSE), in one of the world's largest silver districts.

The Path The US Is On Is Unsustainable, Which Will INEVITABLY Lead To Social Disorder
Anyone paying even a mediocre amount of attention to what’s going in the United States is aware that the country is on a path that is unsustainable.  That unsustainability will inevitably lead to social disorder that could have the US looking a lot like Venezuela. Joe Joseph from The Daily Sheeple says that this social disorder will be the result of widening wealth gaps because the status quo will continue. There will be no changes in the input or feedback loops of society. Since the corportat

When truth matters …confidence will break.
With the four page Congressional memo slated to come out today, our topic will be “confidence”. Confidence and all that goes with it stands to sustain a huge body blow! But first, we need to discuss a topic I have written about several times in the past that took a very strange turn yesterday …Harry Dent. For years he has scared (tried) hard money advocates by forecasting a collapse in gold to $700 and possibly even $250. I have written several times breaking his “Dented logic”, most recently he

Radical Gold Underinvestment 4
Global investors are radically underinvested in gold today.  Years of relentless stock-market rallying to endless new record highs have left this classic alternative investment deeply out of favor.  But this gold-demand ebb is ending.  The same central banks that fueled these extreme stock markets through epic easing are reversing to massive and unprecedented tightening.  As stocks roll over, gold investment will return. Gold is a unique asset class established ove

The Human Race Could Be INFERTILE In 50 Years: ‘A Push For Depopulation’ Will Be ‘Global Crisis’
Male fertility is dipping, and fast. Humans are on course to be infertile in a mere 50 years. Sperm may prove to be the greatest casualty of modern life. According to The Telegraph UK, last summer, scientists at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem found that male sperm counts had fallen by almost 60 percent in 40 years. In what was the largest study of its kind, they analyzed data from 43,000 men from North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand, taking in 185 studies from 1973 to 2011. Its
