Japan's Graying Population Needs New Solutions, Not Old Failures
In 1989, 11.6% of the population of Japan was over 65. In 2006, it hit 20%. In 2055, it is expected to reach 38%. I assert that it is possible to have economic abundance with a shrinking and graying population. But, not if you do things the same old way. How should a government deal with this? Care of the elderly has been a part of human society from prehistoric times. But, there have never been so many elderly. This is not a uniquely Japanese pro

  Will The Real Silver Commercials Stand Up?
One of the more persistent flaws in the world's most important price discovery mechanism comes down to a simple question. How did it come to pass that banks were given access to the commercial category of traders?It's a given that the market is rigged to high heaven. And it’s completely obvious by now how it is accomplished. They only folks left in denial about it have a direct incentive for ignoring it - usually an obvious one. The nature of the players should tell one all they really need to k

Question: What’s the best way to determine if Prozac works? Answer: Look at your gold portfolio. I read about two dozen articles last Thursday about the gold market, and not one of them had anything positive to say. Technical analysts, mainstream economists, industry analysts—all were bearish for various reasons and timeframes. Why invest in gold when… We’re repeatedly told the economy is improving—and basic data like falling unemployment and rising GDP appear to confirm it The

Gold's Transition Zone: Investor Strategy
Graceland Updates By Stewart Thomson1.The QE program created substantial hedge fund interest in gold-related ETFs.Unfortunately, QE never created the inflation the funds had anticipated.2.That’s because commercial banks held the QE money they received, “tight to the chest”, rather than loaning it to businesses and consumers.3.In a nutshell, by enlarging the money supply while GDP was falling, the Fed created deflation.4.So, if the Fed were to shrink the money supply now, or at least reduce its r

  The Great Silver Subsidization 
Understanding precious metal price reality is like walking through a house of mirrors. I spend a lot of time examining eyeballs. The magnification required to focus light on the retina is very strong. This causes an inverted image. What I see in the lower right of my view is actually the upper left area of the patient's eye.Like everything, it takes some practice. In the days before digital records, I would turn the paper chart upside down to record my drawings. It is similar to the interpretati

A difficult question
In a radio interview recently* I was asked a question to which I could not easily give a satisfactory reply: if the gold market is rigged, why does it matter? I have no problem delivering a comprehensive answer based on a sound aprioristic analysis of how rigging markets distorts the basis of economic calculation and why a properly functioning gold market is central to all other financial prices. The difficulty is in answering the question in terms the listeners understand, bearing in mind I was

Blockchain Promises To Be As Disruptive A Technology As The Internet
Every once in a while a new idea blasts onto the scene out of nowhere - typically it is at first met with suspicion and distrust. If it has merit, it can start to become disruptive and awkward for incumbents, let's call them the “Safe Guys”. Safety and security are heralded as reasons why the new idea should be ignored. New ideas only really take off when someone somewhere, lets call him the “New Guy”, figures out how to monetise the hell out of the idea -- then New Guy types start to get wealth

Strong Reversal Augurs for Rough September
In recent weeks we wrote about the ongoing consolidation in precious metals miners. We touched on the history of September, not as a bullish month but as an important inflection point. With the miners holding up well and Gold still holding its lows we thought a breakout could be coming. Yet we've been whipsawed before. Several times over the past year (and as recently as late July) we've written about the possibility of a final low in Gold to precede the next impulsive advance in the

Useful Idiots and the Something For Nothing Society - Part V of V 
In this final chapter of Useful Idiots and the Something for Nothing society, we show the final elements leading to the societal and economic collapse that we are currently caught in. The system I have outlined here and in previous chapters is INSANE when viewed through the lens of history. Unfortunately, our leaders and our society have forgotten it and, therefore, we are doomed to repeat it. Nothing will stop it and very little can be done to slow it down. You must embrace it, ackn

Julian D. W. Phillips - Gold Forecaster
Of course the Gold Price is manipulated, that’s the point! 
By Julian D. W. PhillipsThroughout history, there have been a constant flow of schemes to try to manipulate the gold price and gold itself in terms of paper money. These have come from governments, institutions as well as from individuals. The aim has always been to either establish the value of currencies or enhance that value in terms of gold. The first key to this is to ensure that the gold price is made in the paper currency and not the price of the paper currency in gold.At school you proba

  Frankenstein Fed, The Modern Prometheus
By Scott SilvaIf Mary Shelly were around today, she might have a cause of action against the Federal Reserve for copyright infringement. The Fed has stolen the storyline Shelly’s 1818 gothic novel, Frankenstein, The Modern Prometheus. The case against the Fed’s criminal usurpation of intellectual property is strong; any schoolboy would see the obvious plagiarism, including the plot, the central characters, and even some of the dialog of the original science fiction horror story.

The Yield Curve and Our Weakened Economy
So far in August the differential between the yield on the 10-year Treasury note and the yield on the 3-month Treasury bill stands at 2.38 percent against 2.95 percent in December 2013. Historically, the yield differential on average has led the yearly rate of growth of industrial production by fourteen months. This raises the likelihood that the growth momentum of industrial production will ease in the months ahead, all other things being equal. It is generally held that the shape of the

The Credit Gradient 
The United States, and every country, is subject to a monetary authority and legal tender laws. Here in the U.S. we have the Federal Reserve, a central bank that plans money and credit. The Fed thought they had perfected their planning (but of course it cannot be perfected). They thought they had ended the boom and bust cycle, and brought us into a brave new era, their so-called great moderation that ended in 2008. All they really did was manage the banking system to the brink of insolvency. Let
