Gold’s True Fundamentals
To paraphrase Jim Grant, gold’s perceived value in US$ terms is the reciprocal of confidence in the Fed and/or the US economy. Consequently, what I refer to as gold’s true fundamentals are measures of confidence in the Fed and/or the US economy. I’ve been covering these fundamental drivers of the gold price in TSI commentaries for almost 17 years. It doesn’t seem that long, but time flies when you’re having fun. No

Americans Dying an Average of $61,500 in Debt
According to a recent study, the average total household debt in America is just over $132,500, broken down as per the chart below… … and thanks to the Fed’s recent and ongoing rate increases, the repayment of said debt will become increasingly more difficult. So difficult, in fact, that most Americans will be saddled with a sizable chunk of it at the time of their death. Actually, most already are. According to December 2016 data from credit bureau Experian provided to credit.com, 73% of Ameri

Canary In The Coal Mine: Unfunded Liabilities Have Turned Illinois Into A “Banana Republic” On The Brink Of Bankruptcy
Illinois is the perfect example of what happens when your state is run by fiscally irresponsible dunces for decades. The state is buried debt, and hasn’t passed a budget in over 700 days. 100% of their monthly revenue is being consumed by court ordered payments, and the Illinois Department of Transportation has revealed that they may not be able to pay contractors (who are working on over 700 infrastructure projects) after July 1st if the state doesn’t pass a budget. To top it all off, the state

Sears Canada files for bankruptcy
CNNMoney/Chris Isidore/06-22-17 Sears Canada filed for bankruptcy early Thursday, making it the latest casualty of the crisis among traditional brick-and-mortar retailers. It’s also another sign of trouble for the iconic retailer. Sears Canada, which has more than 200 stores and about 17,000 employees, was spun-off as an independent company in 2012. But the filing is still bad news for Sears Holdings (SHLD), which owns both the Sears and Kmart brands in the United States. Sears Holdings still ow

Junk Bonds Signal the Great Global Debt Binge Is Coming to an End
The market has gone absolutely nowhere for 15 weeks now. That is not a typo, nor am I bearing overly negative. Since the end of February, when President Trump last tweeted that he had big plans for the economy, the S&P 500 is up a total of just 1.6% or roughly 39 points. And THIS is the raging bull market that everyone is so crazy about? A market in which it took almost FOUR months for stocks to eek out a 1.6% gain? Meanwhile against this backdrop of unhinged bullishness, the credit markets are

Left wing, ...
One of the saddest things about Britain’s recent general election was the level of ignorance displayed by all parties on the broad subject of political economics. I use the term to include both political philosophy and pure economic theory.Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the Scottish Nationalists seem to think free markets are right-wing. The Conservatives appear to have lost all compass, most government ministers believing free markets without government regulation are chaotic, with unscrupul

A Rigged Game 
76 years ago, “Joltin’ Joe” DiMaggio was in the middle of the hitting streak of streaks that would come to 56 consecutive games and which has remained a major league baseball record to this day. That season (1941), the Yankee Clipper would bat .408 during the epic streak or more than 4 hits for every 10 at bats. Ted Williams, of the Boston Red Sox, had the highest batting average in 1941, hitting .406 for the entire season. What would you say if I told you that a batter had hit 1.000 for an enti

An Empire Self-Destructs - Jeff Thomas
Empires are built through the creation or acquisition of wealth. The Roman Empire came about through the productivity of its people and its subsequent acquisition of wealth from those that it invaded. The Spanish Empire began with productivity and expanded through the use of its large armada of ships, looting the New World of its gold. The British Empire began through localized productivity and grew through its creation of colonies worldwide – colonies that it exploited, bringing the weal

Gold Confiscation in the U.S. - Rory Hall
GATA reported yesterday, and we picked up the story, about a golden rooster being confiscated by the Treasury in 1960. The rooster weighed in at a hefty 14 pounds of solid gold – that’s a lot of gold. The rooster was commissioned by a Las Vegas casino that would later become the Golden Nugget. The casino acquired the name after they had acquired one of the largest gold nuggets ever dug out of the ground. The current gold nugget is on display, named “Hand of Faith”, can be seen daily as it

Since Seattle Placed A Tax On Guns And Ammunition, The City’s Violent Crime Rate Has Increased
In recent years, Seattle has developed a reputation for passing asinine laws. Recently the city tried to increase taxes on diet soda, because the drink is more popular among white people. In the past they’ve allowed 6th graders to receive IUDs without parental consent, and have enlisted garbage men to snoop through residential trash in search of compost that is illegal to throw out. Seattle was also the first American city to pass a $15 minimum wage law, which promptly hurt low wage workers. So

Update:Project $1550 Gold Hints a Bottom is Near (But We're Nervous)
$1247 gets you $1220, but above  $1214 and the $1550 target is still in play via Soren K. Group for Marketslant It should be noted that we are concerned that Gold under $1247 gets us to $1220. But the wave count we have been following says that a sell-off above $1214 still keep it intact. It is just hard for us to buy dips on short term trades. We'd rather buy a bounce off the lows. But as long as Gold remains above $1214 both the wave  count and our own feel corroborate each  other. It is just

Existing Home Sales Bounce 1, Time to Sell Hits New Low: “Happy and Relieved”?
Housing, which had been showing considerable second-quarter weakness bounced slightly. That was enough to beat the Econoday consensus. Housing has been sliding which adds importance to May’s very solid 1.1 percent rebound in existing home sales to a higher-than-expected 5.620 million annualized rate. Today’s report is mostly solid throughout and includes gains for single-family homes, up 1.0 percent to a 4.980 million rate, and also condos, up 1.6 percent to a 640,000 rate. The sales gains did n

The End of Markets, Part I - Jeff Nielson
Readers in the Alternative Media may have noticed a distinct drop-off in the number of articles that are published on “the gold market” or “the silver market”. This is true even with respect to precious metals commentators. There is a very good reason for this. We no longer have markets. To prove this assertion, as always, the place to start is definition of terms. What is a market? There are a number of ingredients in any definition. However, first and foremost, a market is a forum for human

Who Cares About the “Wealth Gap” if Everyone is Richer?
Via The Daily Bell How many successful people can there be? It seems like, after every article you read these days, the author bio talks about a book they have written, an invention they created, a prestigious award or some other indicator of great success. Yet I’ve never really heard of most of them. I used to get pings of jealousy when I would see descriptions like that of successful people; it almost felt like there were a limited number of “success” spots on planet earth, and if they were ta
