Inflation v Deflation – State Finances
There is a general belief, and that is all it is, that state finances fare better in an inflationary environment than a deflationary one. This perception arises from the transfer of wealth from lenders to the state through a devaluation of the currency, which occurs with monetary inflation, compared with the transfer of wealth from the state to its creditors through deflation. The effect is undoubtedly true, even though it is played down by governments, but it ignores what happens to continuing

SELL CRYPTOS – BUY GOLD
During the 2006-9 financial crisis, a collapse of the global financial system was avoided by massive money printing, guarantees and allowing banks to value assets at cost rather than market, as well as a panic lowering of interest rates from as high as 6% in the US to zero or negative. Bonds issued by eight major countries currently have negative interest rates from 1 & 2 year debt for Italy up to 15 & 30 year debt for Japan, Germany and Switzerland.

World Gold Council plans another ETF
From ETF.com, New York Monday, December 4, 2017 The World Gold Council has filed for a new physical gold ETF. The Gold Trust will be very similar to the $35 billion SPDR Gold Trust (GLD), the world's largest gold fund, but with key differences. At first glance, the fund looks like it will go head to head with GLD, but maybe not. It seems unlikely the World Gold Council would want to cannibalize a successful existing product that already has its backing. The filing is actually quite vague, with a

Warning: ‘They Need The Markets To Implode’ To Usher In Cashless System
Market analyst Lynette Zang predicts in the next market meltdown, “real estate, stocks, and bonds will all crash.” When asked when this will happen, Zang says, “Enjoy your Christmas,” but in 2018, all bets are off. Greg Hunter interviewed Lynette Zang, Chief Market Strategist at ITMtrading.com, and her assessment of the 2018 economy is dire.  Zang predicts, “In 2018, I don’t think they can hold these things together. I think we will see a major market correction in 2018. When that happens, that

The Chances Are Exactly Zero
Financial sanity and stability may not return, but we can protect our assets and learn from the discussion. The DOW, S&P500, NASDAQ and other markets sell at all-time highs. However, we know many imbalances exist within our financial world. This is not new – things have been crazy before, are now, and will be again. But to regain financial sanity we need: From “Doug Casey on the New Fed Chair” “In an ideal world there would be some radical changes. The best thing for the US in the (famous) long

Russia, China and BRICS: A New Gold Trading Network
One of the most notable events in Russia’s precious metals market calendar is the annual “Russian Bullion Market” conference. Formerly known as the Russian Bullion Awards, this conference, now in its 10th year, took place this year on Friday 24 November in Moscow. Among the speakers lined up, the most notable inclusion was probably Sergey Shvetsov, First Deputy Chairman of Russia’s central bank, the Bank of Russia. In his speech, Shvetsov provided an update on an important development involving

An Interview with GoldCore Founder, Mark O’Byrne
“Uber-bull predictions of gold at over $5,000 per ounce are not beyond the realms of possibility…” So says GoldCore founder and self-confessed gold bug, Mark O’Byrne. Indeed, I recently caught up with Mark to get his thoughts on gold and what’s going on with it right now… But before we got to the nitty-gritty, I started by asking him a little about his background: GLENN: How long have you been in the gold business, Mark? MARK: Well, I founded GoldCore more than 14 years ago and it’s been my pass

If You THINK About Taking Someone’s Golden “Pet Rock” It Would Be a “Declaration Of Financial War” - Rory Hall
Russia is not Venezuela. I have long argued that most of Venezuela’s monetary issues are due to their unwillingness to return the gold they received from the Federal Reserve. Goldman Sachs had offered to acquire Venezuela’s gold, when the oil market began it’s slide and OPEC decided to flood the market with oil. The story line was OPEC was attacking the US shale oil market when this move actually crushed Russia and Venezuela’s oil market. Venezuela, eventually, accepted Goldman’s offer

The True Meaning of Bitcoin's 'Success'
In the year 301 AD, the Roman unit of barter was the denarius, which had originally been 95% pure silver when introduced by Augustus at the end of the first century BC but by the time of Diocletian's rule, it had moved to 50,000 denarii to a pound of gold. Ten year later, it took 120,000 denarii to buy a pound of gold and by 337, that figure was 20,000,000. What had occurred in a mere 400 years was that a slow and agonizing erosion in the purchasing power of the Roman currency accelerated to ful

A Mixed Bag of Gold - Rory Hall
Not since 2010 has gold moved to the upside as it is moving in 2017. The good news is it is being overshadowed by all the noise being made by cryptocurrencies and bitcoin in particular. Some in the gold community are upset about cryptos stealing all the headlines; not me, however. I love visiting websites and YouTube channels that have comments that read something like “ gold went up $6 today while bitcoin went up $600 – sale all your bitcoin and buy gold“. Of course this is intended as s

BRICS Gold Trade Settlement To Begin in 2018? - Rory Hall
My guess is it will take Russia and China and the other BRICS nations most of 2018 to get all the nuances worked out and the gold trade settlement contracts will not actually come to the table until 2019 or possibly even 2020. We say this in light of what happened with the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) bringing their gold settlement mechanism online back in April 2016. The SGE was supposed to bring this online in October 2015, but was unable to make it happen as they wished to avoid any m

Shoeshine boys in airports ‘round the world must be whispering about Bitcoin as the crypto-currency coils upward to tickle the $10,000 line. Ethereum’s roaring up, too, along with most other cryptos, from Byteball Bytes to Tattoocoin (Limited Edition). Whatever else you think about it, this action is sending a message, perhaps several.

In 1981, a 10-year-old Vietnamese girl, her parents and nine brothers and sisters began preparing for a perilous journey, a journey they knew they might not survive. Since the fall of Saigon and the end of the Vietnam War in April 1975, life had been hard for the little girl’s family. The Communist government of North Vietnam inherited a country deeply divided, devastated by war, and on the verge of economic collapse. In an attempt to unify the country, the government instituted a centrally p

Rob From The Middle Class Economics - Gary Christenson
Much of our financial world functions as a “Rob from the Middle Class” economy. The system robs from the middle class and poor via “money printing” and inflation of the currency supply!
