India Bans Gold Exports “Without a Valid Reason”
In addition to its crackdown on cash, India stepped up its attack on gold. The aim is to cut down on gold imports. India does that in a roundabout way, by cracking down on exports. Bloomberg reports India Bans Gold Exports Above 22 Carats to Plug Trade Loopholes. India has banned the export of gold products with purity above 22 carats with immediate effect, a move that the industry sees as a way of curbing irregularities in the trade. The Directorate General of Foreign Trade issued a notice li

The Return of Sound Money
On Sunday evening, August 15, 1971, President Nixon told the American people the U.S. would “suspend temporarily the convertibility of the dollar into gold or other reserve assets” as a means of defending the dollar against “the speculators.”  This was one part of his New Economic Policy, a phrase borrowed from communist Vladimir Lenin, which included a 90-day freeze on prices and wages, and a 10 percent tax on imports.  Gary North points out that Barron’s editor Robert Bleiberg, in a 1974 speec

Tax Reform, Debt Ceiling and Gold
When lawmakers return from their August recess, they will have to deal with the debt ceiling and the tax reform. What does it mean for the gold market? We are in the middle of summer and the lawmakers are on their holidays. So nothing should disturb our peace of mind now. Nothing except the vision of nuclear holocaust after the World War III triggered by the U.S. fire and fury against the North Korea, of course. However, when the recess ends, the lawmakers will have to tackle with the debt ceili

Cryptocurrency - its status as money
The cryptocurrency craze is fascinating to an economist, or at least a student of catallactics, because it is a test of the theory of exchange ratios and prices, which is what catallactics is about.For this reason, the outcome of the cryptocurrency craze is of great theoretical interest. It is also of interest to students of the psychology of speculation.Supporters of cryptocurrencies claim they are money. If they are unable to substantiate this claim, then we must conclude that cryptocurrencies

Payment in gold bullion banned in UK under new policy against tax evasion
* * * Payment in Gold Bullion Banned Under New Law to Combat Tax Evasion By Rupert Neate The Guardian, London Monday, August 7, 2017 Companies will no longer be able to pay employees their salaries in gold bullion in the first use of a new law designed to combat "morally repugnant" tax-avoidance schemes. An expert tax-avoidance panel has ruled that paying employees in gold is a "contrived" tax avoidance scheme designed to "frustrate the intent of Parliament" in cracking down on such practices. I

Case for Zero Corporate Taxes: Who Really Pays Them?
President Trump and Congress have their eyes on a tax overhaul now that Obamacare replacement has died. Republicans want to slash corporate taxes. Democrats tend towards arguments like corporations must pay their “fair share”. Lost in the “fair share” debate is the answer to this key question: Who Ultimately Pays for Corporate Taxes? Tax overhaul efforts in Washington are being shaped by a debate about whether it is workers or investors who bear the greater burden of U.S. corporate taxes. If t

Why We Should Cut The Corporate Tax To 15 Now
(This item originally appeared at on August 8, 2017.)…te-tax-to-15-now/ The U.S. government hasn’t really done very much about its tax code since 1987. Mostly it has been like the Battle of the Somme, trench warfare accomplishing nothing, with the top income tax rate wiggling between 35% and 39.6%. During this time, dozens of governments that were actually communist in 1987 not only embraced capitalism, but actually

Shakespeare on Finance
We are told by Shakespeare: “Neither a borrower nor a lender be.” Is it good advice?Like so many things in life, the answer is - it depends. Individuals are different, and what is right for one person may not be suitable for another. What’s more, everyone’s circumstances are different, which may require different decisions that result in a myriad of outcomes.Consider too what has happened to money in the four centuries that have passed since Shakespeare penned those immortal words.

Gold Bullion Gains as Base Metals Jump, Dollar Falls with US Consumer Credit Growth
GOLD BULLION halved last week's loss against the Dollar Tuesday lunchtime in London, rising to $1265 per ounce as the US currency fell once again on the FX markets and base metal prices jumped to a series of multi-year highs.

5 Reasons to Fear the Fall
This powerful and protracted bull market has made Cassandras look foolish for a long time. Those who went on record predicting that massive central bank manipulation of markets would not engender viable economic growth have been proven correct. However, these same individuals failed to fully anticipate the willingness of momentum-trading algorithms to take asset prices very far above the underlying level of economic growth. Nevertheless, there are five reasons to believe that this fall will fina

Egon von Greyerz - Matterhorn AM
Over the last 150 years, the West has gone from human slavery to debt slavery. Slavery was officially outlawed in most countries between the mid 1800s and early 1900s. In the British Empire, it was abolished in 1834 and in the US in 1865 with the 13th amendment. But it didn’t take long for a different and much more subtle form of slavery to be introduced. It started officially in 1913 with the creation of the Federal Reserve Bank in New York. More than 100 years before that, the German banker Ma

What Will The Coming Gold Standard Look Like
I gave a talk at FreedomFest last month. Unfortunately, the video was not recorded (not even the projector worked). However, the topic is so important that I recorded the talk back in my office, to put a video to put on the Internet. My talk covers 6 areas: Two pseudo gold standards What do people need from a monetary system? What is the role of the banker? Why does gold circulate or not circulate? A working definition of the gold standard How do we get from here to there? The video can be fou

On the Road To Damascus: Faith and Sanctity In Corrupt and Cynical Times
Michelangelo, Paul On the Road to Damascus “To know and to serve God, of course, is why we’re here, a clear truth, that, like the nose on your face, is near at hand and easily discernible but can make you dizzy if you try to focus on it hard.  But a little faith will see you through. What else will do except faith in such a cynical, corrupt time?  When the country goes temporarily to the dogs, cats must learn to be circumspect, walk on fences, sleep in trees, and have faith that all this woofi

The Coming Financial Disruption
By Chris at From the late 1700's through the 1800's the first industrial revolution brought immense benefits to the average Jack. Mass production of textiles, transportation, food, and beer meant that it was no longer just Lords and Ladies that could afford to get hammered. Indeed, Jack and Jill too could fall down the hill after getting plastered without breaking the bank. Those with capital owned the means of production. Stuff like mines, railroads, steel factories,

“Inflate or Die,” Peak Silver and Gold’s Coming Breakout
“Inflate or die” was Richard Russell’s characterization of our economic system and the central bank response to most problems during the past three decades.

Fiat currencies are created as debt.  Inflating currency supply means increasing total debt.  Global debt exceeds $200 trillion.  Per the St. Louis Federal Reserve, total debt securities in the U.S. exceed $40 trillion.

Central Banks’ Hawkish Turn and Gold
A lot happened since the latest issue of the Market Overview. To begin with, there were two unusual flash crashes both in the gold and silver markets. Although their occurrence within just one week was rather fishy, the fundamentals of precious metals remained unchanged. On the political front, gold was supported temporarily by the revelation of the Donald Trump Jr.’s emails suggesting that Russia wanted to support his father’s presidential campaign. The Trump administration’s failure to get the
