  Supply Side Economics – 42 Years Later – Paul Craig Roberts 
Supply-Side economics burst onto the economic policy scene in Washington, D.C., on September 21, 1975 in the Sunday Washington Star in an article I had written for US Representative Jack Kemp that provided a supply-side economic basis for his capital formation bill. Subsequently, I generalized the supply-side approach when I realized that changes in marginal tax rates altered relative prices and could shift the aggregate supply side curve. Until that time, economists assumed that fiscal policy o

Congress Plays Catch-Up With Self-Driving Cars: Millions of Jobs Will Vanish, What Jobs New Jobs Will Surface?
As the push for self-driving cars nears fruition, Congress has a bit of work to do. A national solution is the key, not a hodge-podge of state regulations with states saying and doing a number of different things. A House bill dubbed the Highly Automated Vehicle Testing and Deployment Act of 2017, is now in the works. It will give the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration broad oversight of the self-driving car industry. The New York Times reports As Self-Driving Cars Near, Washington

  The Gold Industry is in a Deep State of Dysfunction, Delusion and Denial - Stewart Dougherty 
In 1980, the Financial Deep State realized that there existed an extraordinary opportunity for serial plunder and profiteering: the manipulation of the gold and silver markets. They immediately mobilized to exploit it. During the subsequent 37+ years (we are now well into the 38th), the Deep State manipulators have criminally looted the gold and silver markets, pocketing astronomical profits for themselves in the process, all of which have come from real victims on the other sides of their fraud

The strenuous effort of “Resistance” passengers in the Limousine-of-State to shove Donald Trump out of the driver’s seat continues into what would normally be the news-wasteland of midsummer. Last week it was the smoking popgun of Trump Junior’s meeting with a Russian lawyer purported (by British music promoter Rob Goldstein) to be associated with the “Russian Crown Prosecutor” (no such office in a country without a monarch). The news caused the usual commotion among the very media mouthpieces w

California Ponders $3 Billion Subsidy for Electric Cars: All-Electric Europe by 2035, Worldwide by 2040?
Currently, less than 3% of California vehicle sales are electric. Assemblyman Phil Ting, a San Francisco Democrat, thinks that is not enough. To induce drivers to purchase electric vehicles, California Considers a $3 Billion Electric-Car Rebate Push sponsored by Ting. The bill has passed the state Assembly and is advancing in the state Senate, which is expected to take up the bill once it clears a final committee next month. Gov.

The GOLD PRICE in Dollars eased back but held 0.6% higher for the week so far against the Dollar on Thursday as world stock markets rose following Janet Yellen's comment to lawmakers that the US Federal Reserve will raise interest rates only "gradually". The British Pound meantime rose but London's FTSE-100 share index held almost 2% below last month's new record highs as Westminster's minority Conservative Government published its "Great Repeal

The End Of The Cycle: “The Government Will Gladly Enter A War To Cleanse The Balance Sheet And Cull The Herd”
In the days following the 241st anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the country is in an even more precarious position than it was in 1776.  We face a situation of a fiat currency about to collapse as the consumer-based economy follows.  Whether orchestrated by our imperialistic government or following actions of a hostile foreign nation (prompted or unprompted) the government will gladly enter a war to “cleanse” the balance sheet and cull the herd.  Concurrently, the

Gold Market in H1
A lot happened in the first half of the year. Among many important events, Trump was nominated as POTUS, the Fed hiked its interest rates twice and announced plan to unwind its massive balance sheet, and a few important elections were held in Europe, with Macron taking over French politics. How did gold perform in that interesting period? As one can see in the chart below, gold shined in the first half of 2017. The rally started at the end of December 2016, after the FOMC meeting at which intere

Rethinking the Fed: More Tightening than Priced In? Next Financial Crisis Coming Up?
Time and time again, the Fed sows seeds of the next financial crisis in actions it takes to mitigate the previous financial crisis that it caused. Have we reached that point yet? The Guardian reports Central Banks Raise Alarm Over New Crash After Steep Rise in Lending. Soaring stock markets, which have become detached from underlying values, were another sign that unjustified exuberance had replaced last year’s overly pessimistic reaction to political events such as the US election and the UK’

Stock Markets Hyper-Risky
The US stock markets have enjoyed an extraordinary surge this year, shattering all kinds of records.  It’s been fueled by hopes for big tax cuts soon from Trump’s Republican government.  But such relentless rallying has catapulted complacency, euphoria, and valuations to dangerous bull-slaying extremes.  This has left today’s beloved and lofty stock markets hyper-risky, with mounting potential for serious selloffs erupting. History extensively proves that stock

Healthcare Bill, IMF and Gold
This week, the U.S. Senate delayed the vote on the healthcare bill. What does it mean for the gold market? On Tuesday, Republicans were forced to delay the Senate’s vote on the replacement for Obamacare. The vote was postponed to after the Fourth of July recess, as it turned out that it lacked support. The Congressional Budget Office’s estimation that the bill would leave about 22 million more people without health insurance by 2026 did not help the bill’s prospects. The struggle in the Senate m

Republicans punt: Obamacare replacement vote delayed
MarketWatch/Jeffry Bartash/06-27-17 Republican Senate leaders on Tuesday delayed a vote on the party’s controversial replacement for Obamacare until after July 4 amid a frantic effort to round up enough votes and avert an embarrassing defeat. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had hoped to hold a vote before the holiday, but Republicans lack enough support for a bill that’s been criticized by both the moderate and conservative wings of the party.

1.8 Million Ounces of Gold Traded in One Minute
Yesterday, there was a flash crash in the gold market. What happened and what does it mean? Monday was a very interesting day for the gold market, as the price of gold plunged almost $20 after 1.8 million ounces of the yellow metal were sold in one minute. Gold futures fell as much as 1.6 percent to $1,236.50 an ounce on the Comex at the Asian close. The drop was unexpected as no new fundamentals justified it. On the contrary, orders for U.S. durable goods fell 1.1 percent in May, the second mon
