Congress Votes for More War in the Middle East
Last week, the House and Senate voted to rubber stamp President Obama's war plans for the Middle East. Both bodies, on a bipartisan basis, authorized the US to begin openly training and arming the rebels who have been fighting for three years to overthrow the Assad government in Syria. Although the Syrian government has also been fighting ISIS and related extremist groups for three years, the US refuses to speak to the Syrians and has warned Assad not to interfere with the coming US at

China Moves To Dominate Gold Market With Physical Exchange
Shanghai Gold Exchange International Board China is slowly moving to dominate the global gold market and it is important to join the dots regarding a few key recent developments in China relating to gold. When the International Board of the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) was launched last Thursday September 18 during an evening trading session, it was notable that the first transactions were put through by a diverse group comprising HSBC, MKS (Switzerland), and the Chinese banks,  ICBC, Bank of Ch

Don’t Be a Freedom Wimp: Live from the Casey Research Summit in San Antonio
On Day Two of the Casey Research Summit in San Antonio, the emphasis was decidedly on the “deep state,” as Doug Casey termed it: what it is, what it’s doing, and how to thrive despite its ubiquitous reach. The deep state begins with government, an institution Doug describes as intrinsically evil and destructive. That’s because it’s empowered by enforced coercion—one of only two ways in which humans interact with one another (the alternative being voluntary cooperation). But the deep state is

Established rivals may keep Shanghai trade zone's gold exchange in check
http://www.scmp.com/business/commodities/article/1597536/established-riv... China's launch of an international gold exchange in the Shanghai Free-Trade Zone 11 days ahead of schedule last week may not be much help as it seeks to compete with established gold markets such as New York, London, and Singapore. While China is the largest physical gold consumer in the world, the financial infrastructure may lag that of Singapore and Hong Kong in handling a gold market. Gold traders believe the gold ma

Precious Metals Continued Showing Major Weakness With the Capitulation Point Now Not Far Off

Two Estimations of Chinese Gold Demand 
I found it interesting that these two estimations of Chinese gold demand arrive at similar answers from two different methods and assuming two different start dates. Before anyone asks, Koos Jansen has addressed the notion of 'round trips' of gold on the Shanghai Exchange in some detail.   It is not the same sort of bullion game that is the hall mark of the Comex.

Michael Parenti on Globalisation, Terrorism, and Conspiracy
“In societies that worship money and success, the losers become objects of scorn. Those who work the hardest for the least are called lazy. Those forced to live in substandard housing are thought to be the authors of substandard lives. Those who do not finish high school or cannot afford to go to college are considered deficient or inept. No system in history has been more relentless in battering down ancient and fragile cultures, devouring the resources of whole regions, pulverizing

Upton Sinclair: The Brass Check
These quotes are from The Brass Check which was written by Upton Sinclair in 1919. A brass check was a token purchased by a customer in a brothel and given to the woman of his choice. Sinclair saw the moneyed interests of his day holding brass checks with which to purchase politicians, journalists and their editors, and other thought leaders of the day. For twenty years I have been a voice crying in the wilderness of industrial America; pleading for kindness to our laboring-classes, plea

Is World Gold Council's CEO angling for a tin-foil hat?

Of course the Gold Price is manipulated, that's the point! - The "London Gold Pool" - 1961 to 1968
By the beginning of the 1960s, the U.S.$ 35 = 1 oz. Gold price was becoming more and more difficult to sustain. Gold demand was rising and U.S. Gold reserves were falling, both as a result of the ever increasing trade deficits which the U.S. continued to run with the rest of the world. Shortly after President Kennedy was Inaugurated in January 1961, and to combat this situation, newly-appointed Undersecretary of the Treasury Robert Roosa suggested that the U.S. and Europe

The Divergence Between Debt and Gold
There is little doubt that gold is 'money' in the de facto, if not official, sense. It has been so for at least two thousands years, if not longer. In a policy regime in which the Western central banks wish to quietly devalue their currencies in concert, it would be awkward to allow gold to speak embarrassing truths. I would like to think that now, unlike ten years ago before almost every market was shown to be manipulated and sometimes on a global scale, that a concerted effort to discredit

Ultrasonic inspection of precious metals
Conventional techniques for precious metal quality assessment Historically, inspection of gold quality has mostly involved chemical analysis to determine purity, using techniques such as fireassay[1]. But as this is a wholly destructive technique, there are obvious disadvantages. More recently minimally or non-destructive techniques such as mass spectrometry [1] or X-ray fluorescence [2,3], and even low temperature photoluminescence [4] have been used.

U.S. House passes Fed audit bill but measure is seen doomed in Senate
WASHINGTON -- The U.S. House of Representatives today overwhelmingly passed a bill that would open up Federal Reserve monetary policy decisions to a congressional audit, reviving a measure passed in 2012. But the legislation approved by the Republican-dominated House is expected to meet a fate similar to its predecessor's: death in the Democratic-controlled Senate. The "Federal Reserve Transparency Act" passed 333-92 in a bipartisan vote. It is largely similar to the 2012 "Audit the Fed" bill ch

Back in 2006, when the housing bubble was entering its truly (and obviously) manic phase, mega-bank Citigroup was being pressured by Wall Street to grow faster. And rather than pushing back against what were clearly ill-timed demands from desperately-short-sighted analysts, Citigroup CEO Chuck Prince uttered some words -- and adopted a strategy -- that live on in the annals of banker cluelessness: "As long as the music is playing, you've got to get up and dance."

Ever since the creation of the Federal Reserve in 1913 Americans have seen the value of their currency dwindle. We know the dollar has lost some 97% of its value since the Fed took over. But it’s hard to actually grasp this destruction of value without some examples. The infographic below, originally posted at The Burning Platform, is self explanatory.

But beneath the surface, the stocks of smaller companies are being put through the meat grinder. Bloomberg found that 47% of all stocks in the Nasdaq have skidded at least 20% from their 12-month high; 40% of the stocks in the Russell 2000 and, chillingly, 40% of those in the

The Financial Repression Authority with Special Guest Ronald-Peter S
Financial repression always consists of a combination of different measures, which lead to a significant narrowing of the universe of investable assets for investors. Money which in a more liberal investment environment would have flowed into other asset classes, is channeled in a different direction. The goal of financial repression is an indirect reduction of government debt by means of the targeted manipulation of the cost of government debt, most of the time accompanied by steady inflation."

They Really Mean
Nearly a century after the fact, the Great Depression remains THE object lesson for virtually every branch of economics. To monetarists the fact that the US money supply fell by nearly a third in the 1930s illustrates the need for a central bank to maintain steady money growth. To Keynesians the Depression's depth and duration proved that capitalist systems are inherently unstable and need a big, powerful government to manage them. World War II, in this framework, saved the US econom
