Gold Is Now Officially Money 
Everything that has happened since 2007, every Central Bank move, ever major political decision regarding the big banks, every trend, have all been focused solely on one issue. That issue is collateral. What is collateral? Collateral is an underlying asset that is pledged when a party enters into a financial arrangement.  It is essentially a promise that should things go awry, you have some “thing” that is of value, which the other party can get access to in order to compensate them for their

  There Will Be No Warning When the Next Crisis Hits 
Yesterday we wrote about the Cyprus bank “bail-in” noting that while ordinary citizens were screwed, connected insiders had ample time to get their money out of the banks before they were frozen. Today, we note the following: Russian oligarchs who are close to Vladimir Putin have a week to get their cash out of Britain before sanctions are imposed, it has emerged.

  Excuse Me For Living 
I srael has all the proof it needs that world opinion will never consider its right to exist important. The Obama White House, and a lot of the US News Media, portray the Hamas-Israel conflict as something like an amateur soccer match, with the uneven score (40-odd Israeli soldiers killed versus 1000-plus Palestinians, mostly civilians) showing that the contest is unfair, that Israel has “gone too far,” that they have entered the same moral zone as Hitler, Stalin, and Pol Pot, carrying out a “ge

The Coming Slump 
Governments and central banks have made little or no progress in recovering from the Lehman crisis six years ago. The problem is not helped by dependence on statistics which are downright misleading. This is particularly true of real GDP, comprised of nominal GDP deflated by an estimate of price inflation. First, we must discuss the inflation adjustment. The idea that there is such a thing as a valid measure of price inflation is only true in an econometrician's imagination. An index which might

Like Dripping Silver Icicles 
I don’t typically emphasize price charts in analyzing the market, however something unusual has been happening in the spot (physical) silver market. It did not happen in the silver futures market, nor in the gold market. I have been bearish on silver because of its supply and demand fundamentals, and the price action shown below adds a new dimension. Let’s take a look at a candlestick chart. Candlestick charts show the open, close, and price range during a particular period. The region between t

"Gentlemen! I too have been a close observer of the doings of the Bank of the United States. I have had men watching you for a long time, and am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is y

The Great Manipulation of Financial Markets Seems to be Reaching its Limits 
The great manipulation of financial markets seems to be reaching its limits; bubbles are at their highest, and so are risks. The central banks’ money printing machines, along with interest rates kept on the floor, are working perfectly well: The yields on sovereign bonds are at historical lows in the United States, Germany, the UK and France. They, in fact, are working too well: those bonds do not even match the inflation rate, an obvious sign of a bubble. Then where is the money going, if sove

  End Torture, Shut Down The CIA! 
Remember back in April, 2007, when then-CIA director George Tenet appeared on 60 Minutes, angrily telling the program host, "we don't torture people"? Remember a few months later, in October, President George W. Bush saying, "this government does not torture people"? We knew then it was not true because we had already seen the photos of Iraqis tortured at Abu Ghraib prison four years earlier. Still the US administration denied that torture was torture, preferring to call it "enhanc

Deflation or Runaway Inflation
Runaway inflation is not a monetary phenomenon, the claims of monetarists notwithstanding. It is an interest-rate phenomenon predicated on the linkage. The price level and the rate of interest resonate with the oscillating money-flows between the bond and the commodity markets. This economic resonance, under the concerted pounding by speculators, ultimately reaches the state of runaway vibration. When the fragile confidence in the value of irredeemable currency snaps, commodities are bought up and all bids for bonds are withdrawn. The rate of interest, together with the price level, reach astronomical heights. There is no scientific way to predict

Why Inflation Is Not Yet Showing Up In The Data
Since 2007, the world’s Central Banks have collectively put more than $10 trillion into the financial system since 2008. To put that number into perspective, it’s equal to roughly 15% of global GDP. This kind of money printing is literally unheard of in modern history. And it has set the stage for a roaring wave of inflation to hit the financial system. Indeed, the first signs are already showing up... not in the “official” Government data (which is bogus) but in how those who run businesses ar

Jeffrey Mosseri: I don't think it was a very extraordinary event. Gold has been trading around $1,300/oz. We see sharp upward and downward movements triggered by, for instance, something Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen said or a negative report by Goldman Sachs. It looks as if gold will stay in the $1,300/oz range for a little whil

On the Path To a Better Monetary System: Bretton Woods Didn't Fail Because of the "Balance of Paymen
Today is a period when we are building the foundation for the monetary systems of the future – what former Fed chief Paul Volcker recently called “the need to develop an international monetary system worthy of our time.” This “foundation” consists mainly of ideas – the ideas that are later implemented in real-world systems. Without the ideas, you can’t make the system. It’s as simple as that. I think there is a lot of trauma remaining today

  The One Personality Trait that All Gold & Silver Investors Need to be Profitable 
Before one every buys a single troy ounce of gold and silver, one should ensure first and foremost that one understands that gold and silver are volatile in price every single year. Many people commit the same mistake in buying gold and silver that they commit when buying into the stock market – they don’t buy assets when asset prices are low, and only buy them after prices have soared and news of a steep short-term climb in price has been reported by the mainstream media news.
