Rising Powers, Global Money and the Age of Empire (2010), by Steven Bryan
You can tell from the title of this book alone that I would be interested in it. There aren’t very many books out there on the Classical Gold Standard era of the latter Nineteenth Century. Indeed, I would say that Giulio Gallarotti’s book The Anatomy of an International Monetary Regime: the Classical Gold Standard, 1880-1914 (1995) is about the only one I could name. There are other books, but they are collections of papers. I like Gallarotti’s book a lot — he demolishes all kinds of common misc

Why gold has a role in every portfolio
Some investors are averse to gold because, as Warren Buffett argues, it is an unproductive asset. Whereas equities and property can be useful and provide a return, gold “doesn’t do anything but sit there” and consequently has little inherent value, from Buffett’s point of view. The World Gold Council, however, says investment demand for gold exceeded 1,500 tonnes in 2016. As well as being the second-best year on record for inflows to gold exchange-traded funds (ETFs), sales of coins and bars als

CPM Group’s Jeff Christian Responds “NEGATIVELY” To The SRSrocco Report On Silver Investment Demand
The debate continues between the SRSrocco Report and CPM Group’s Jeff Christian on the fundamentals of the silver market.  After my article, in which I questioned the CPM Group’s exclusion of silver investment demand from their supply and demand analysis, Jeff Christian responded with a comment on my website.  I am glad that Mr. Christian responded because it now allows me the opportunity to explain in more detail why I disagree with the CPM Group’s analysis.As I have mentioned before, this has

Spot Gold Halves Post-2014 Recovery vs. Euro Ahead of Fed, ECB, BoE Decisions as Middle East Tensions Worsen
SPOT GOLD prices failed to hold a 0.4% overnight rally from new 5-month lows in London on Tuesday, slipping back as world stock markets rose again ahead of tomorrow's key US Fed decision on Dollar interest rates amid worsening tensions in the Middle East. Edging back towards $1241 per ounce today, the price of gold bullion for immediate delivery has now halved the 16% gains for 2017 reached at early September's 12-month peak.

Ellsberg: U.S. Military Planned First Strike On Every City In Russia and China … and Gave Field Commanders Power to Push Button
Daniel Ellsberg – America’s most famous whistleblower, the former military analyst who leaked the Pentagon Papers which helped end the Vietnam war – has just published a book revealing that he was also one of the main nuclear war planners for the United States in the 1960s. Ellsberg said in an interview this morning that the U.S.  had plans for a first strike on every city in Russia and China … and that numerous field-level commanders had the power to start nuclear Armageddon: [Interviewer] So,

Why Have So Many Financial Experts Have Been Wrong About Bitcoin?
The bitcoin price has rocketed roughly 1,500% higher in 2017 to around $19,000, before correcting to the current price at $15,000. The #2 cryptocurrency by market cap, Ethereum, is up more than 5,000% year to date and many of the altcoins that we track have enjoyed similar gains. Cryptocurrencies have been one of the best-performing asset classes of all time. So, why have so many astute investors and otherwise intelligent people been completely wrong about bitcoin? Why do they profess to know it

THE DISINFORMATION WAR: The Attempt To Disregard Silver Investor Demand In The Market
There is a Disinformation War taking place in the silver market as certain industry analysis is confusing individuals by purposely disregarding the tremendous impact of rising investment demand.  Not only do I find this troubling, but I am also quite surprised how much the silver industry pays attention to this faulty analysis.  So, it’s time once again to set the record straight.Setting the record straight has now become a new mission for me at the SRSrocco Report because the amount of disinfor

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

“Gold is Currency, Period!” - Rory Hall
Over the past couple of weeks, we have been focused on Russia and their understanding of gold and why gold is going to come back to the table of regional and/or international trade. It may even make a grand re-entrance as backing for a national currency or two. Russia, with her closest ally China, have been making headlines, in the broader financial world, for close to two years regarding their acquisitions of gold. Within the smaller gold community these two nations have been making headl

Fast Food Price Wars Coming? The McRib, What's In It?
McDonald’s Corp said on Monday it would introduce new menus with $1, $2 and $3 items in early January.Reuters reports McDonald's new 'dollar' menu to intensify price war in 2018. McDonald’s dropped its popular “Dollar Menu” in 2013 after franchisees groused that selling items like a double cheeseburger for $1 cut into profits. The replacement “Dollar Menu & More” had higher prices, but failed to draw more customers despite heavy marketing. The new dollar menus, set to debut on Jan. 4, include a

Rig For Stormy Weather - Gary Christenson
What storm? The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DOW) reached another all-time high. Interest rates in the U.S. are yielding multi-decade lows, some say multi-century lows. Trillions of dollars in global sovereign debt have negative yield and European junk bonds yield less than 10 year U.S. treasuries. “Official” unemployment is low. Borrowing is inexpensive. Things are good, so they say! I Doubt It! Do you believe the above is a fair and accurate representation of our economic world? If so,

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

  What Now? 
“Contact with Russians.” Grown men and women, doubling and re-doubling down on a political fantasy, repeat this prayer hour after hour on the cable channels and Web waves as if trying to exorcise a nation possessed by the unholy hosts of Hell. But such vicars of the news as Wolf Blitzer, Rachel Maddow, Chuck Todd, and Dean Baquet (of The New York Times) only shove the country closer to a cliff of constitutional crisis.

What’s the Point
A reader emailed us, to ask a few pointed questions. Paraphrasing, they are: Who cares if dollars are calculated in gold or gold is calculated in dollars? People care only if their purchasing power has grown. What is the basis good for? Is it just mathematical play for gold theorists? How does knowing the basis help your readers? Is it just a theoretical explanation of what has already happened? Prove that if someone has known the basis for the last four years, he has benefitted. He also added

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.

You're Just Not Prepared For What’s Coming 
I hate to break it to you, but chances are you're just not prepared for what’s coming. Not even close.  Don't take it personally. I'm simply playing the odds. After spending more than a decade warning people all over the world about the futility of pursuing infinite exponential economic growth on a finite planet, I can tell you this: very few are even aware of the nature of our predicament. An even smaller subset is either physically or financially ready for the sort of future barreling down on
