US Dollar Valued In Gold Since 1718 
How many ounces of gold can $1000 buy? The answer over time is instructive. Here is some knowledge about money. It is remarkable how few economists really understand this, and what it means, what it implies.  Here is Paul Krugman's opinion on the currency war and the US dollar in a recent piece called Godwin and the Greenback.    I think it speaks for itself.    And he is certainly not the worst economic voice out there, which is what makes this so disconcerting.   At least he is not an aus

The BIS Paves the Way for Silver and Gold 
Behind the scenes (or rather, behind the curtain of propaganda) the most influential of the banking class is sending out smoke signals. The Bank for International Settlements (BIS), which is the bank for central banks, has telegraphed the next major world financial downturn. As if you could not see it coming. Recently, the Bank for International Settlement (BIS) warns of 'violent' reversal of global markets.“Investors take zero-rates for granted and unwisely believe that central banks will prote

How Much Gold is on Loan Worldwide 
We can’t speak about the manipulation of the gold price today without understanding the derivatives market. Right after the crash of 2000 in the stock market I became alarmed by the exponential increase of derivative products but especially by the complexity of those products. I am sure that if I asked one of those financial engineers who has designed those products to explain their functioning and consequences in a bear market or, better yet, in a crash, he would be incapable. We are familiar w

Gold: Minor Weakness Is Nothing To Fear
1.As gold traded in the $1250 - $1255 area a week ago, I suggested the price would immediately decline from there, to the $1230 area or lower.2.That’s exactly what happened.Unfortunately, by late yesterday afternoon, the decline had become a bit frightening for some gold price enthusiasts.A nasty wave of selling quickly drove the price down to about $1222.3.To view the current daily chart, please click here now. A sell signal is currently in play on my “price stoker” (14,7,7 Stochastics).That’s

Why is gold mining such a crappy business? 
That gold mining has generally been a crappy long-term investment for almost five decades is evidenced by the following chart. The chart, much of the data for which were provided by Nick Laird of www.sharelynx.com, shows the ratio of the Barrons Gold Mining Index (BGMI) and the US$ gold price from 1920 through to the present*. More specifically, it shows that, relative to gold bullion, the group of gold-mining stocks represented by the BGMI has been in a secular decline since 1968 and is now clo

Perpetual Debt Slavery 
There is an unspoken difference between debt that is designed to be paid back and debt (disguised as perpetual flow) to finance pre-existing streams of debt service. The second type of debt is a Ponzi large enough to make Bernie Madoff blush.  And crash the system. In the current system, debt is money for nothing used to create asset bubbles. Including the equity lift-off we see today. Giving rise to the pump and dump scams that are very much alive and well.As Zerohedge captured the essence: "To

Just Blame the Banks
“I think this is a time where people will look back on us and see it as a period of practically central bank worship.”- Jim GrantCentral bank equals big private-publicly owned banks. The populace still holds a collective deference for the banks. The view that the political financial alliance is the problem is still a rare one. Always one step from conspiracy."It is well enough that people or the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system for it they did, I believe that there would

After 13 years of war in Afghanistan - the longest in US history - the US government has achieved no victory. Afghanistan is in chaos and would collapse completely without regular infusions of US money. The war has been a failure, but Washington will not admit it. More than 2,000 US fighters have been killed in the 13 year Afghan war. More than 20,000 Afghan civilians were also killed. According to a study last year by a Harvard University researcher, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan w

Future “inflation” and the Fed’s madness
Prior to 2002 the Fed would tighten monetary policy in reaction to outward signs of rising "price inflation" and loosen monetary policy in reaction to outward signs of falling "price inflation", but beginning in 2002 the Fed became far more biased towards loose monetary policy. This bias is now so great that it seems as if the Fed has become permanently loose.The following chart comparing the Fed Funds Rate (FFR) target set by the Fed with the Future Inflation Gauge (FIG) clearly illustrates the

Even though it ultimately failed at the ballot box, the recent campaign for Scottish independence should cheer supporters of the numerous secession movements springing up around the globe. In the weeks leading up to the referendum, it appeared that the people of Scotland were poised to vote to secede from the United Kingdom. Defeating the referendum required British political elites to co-opt secession forces by promising greater self-rule for Scotland, as well as launching a massive c

  Dozens of Countries Have Already Kicked the Fiat Currency Habit 
It might seem that today we are deeply devoted to the Mercantilist paradigm in monetary affairs: the notion of a floating fiat currency managed by a panel of bureaucrats, to address an ever-changing menu of issues including unemployment, exchange rates, financial markets, government funding, and the interests of one group or another. Some people call this the Soft Money paradigm, characterized by the “Rule of Man.” But, I think it is important that quite a few go

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

  Why ECB QE Is Bearish For Gold Prices 
The recent action by the ECB appears to have caught many gold bulls off guard. A common interpretation of the impact that a potential quantitative easing program would have on gold prices was that it would be very bullish. This argument was based on the concept that money printing is bullish for gold, and that QE1 and QE2 by the Fed triggered major rallies in the yellow metal. Whilst we do not dispute that QE1 and QE2 by the Fed were indeed bullish for gold, we strongly disagreed that the ECB wo

The Fed’s New Labor-Market Measure
Economists at the Federal Reserve have devised a new indicator, which they hold will enable US central bank policymakers to get better information regarding the state of the labor market. The metric is labeled as the Labor Market Conditions Index (LMCI). Note that one of the key data points Fed policymakers are paying attention to is the labor market. The state of this market dictates the type of monetary policy that is going to be implemented. Fed policymakers are of the view that it is the

The evidence is overwhelming and has already alarmed most investors; our greatest risk is not a bad investment but our political exposure.
