 The Way Out  (5)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
James, you're wrong to think the people on earth couldn't THRIVE ~ live well, eat well, enjoy great lives, advance mankind ~ with the resources we HAVE. The vast majority of Earth's resources ~ the money, the land, the financial ability for research-and-development, the water ~ are concentrated in the hands of The Few. Those FEW mis-use the resources: to build War Material, to build a Surveillance State, to manufacture bombs, to manufacture drones, to buy representatives and Presidents, to write laws that exonerate The Few no matter WHAT they do, on-and-on.

James, you'd be surprised what trillions upon trillions of wasted money "could" have done for mankind. The incredible waste is staggering ! I'm certain you already KNOW where we're headed BECAUSE those ...

 The Finanser Interviews Jon Matonis
 - Jon Matonis - The Monetary Future
"In late 2009, I got introduced to Bitcoin by a random email from Satoshi Nakamoto. I didn’t give it much thought at the time and then 3-4 months later I started to focus upon it."

From Wikipedia:
Feb 2010 – May 2010 value was less than $0.01
From Google: Today 29 March 2015 $244.01

Please God, just one more big score.
As an example: $500 paid in May 2010 @$0.01 = 50,000BTC
50,000 x $244.01 = $12,200,500
Nice profit over roughly 5 years, eh?

Bitcoins are not a product and a marginal service at best.
After all, look at the transaction costs.
Who said a bucket of hot air can't make you rich?

Thank you Jim Willie for your open and candid report on some of the most urgent matters agrevating this economically
and war torn world thanks in full measure to the united states and her lackey allies all of whom will live to regret their
extremely unholy alliance.
You really raise the bench mark for financial journalism someone that my late dad who was an editor who strove for THE
TRUTH would surely be proud of.There are of course many other analysts that I respect but since this is your article ,mentioning
their names here would be like someone taking your thunder.
I wholeheartedly agree with you assessment of the u.s. and their kenyan refugee ,a death wish if ever I saw it.

 The Silver:Gold Ratio, 1687-2011  (15)
 - Nathan Lewis - New World Economics
You are right that a currency based on precious metal is subject to inflation if there is a big increase in the supply of that metal. Indeed, this happened during the mid-to-late 16th century in Europe, when the Spanish imported silver plundered from the Americas. But this inflation was mild in comparison with that of the fiat currencies of the 20th century. It is less of a risk now because, despite ever-advancing technology in exploration, development, and mining over the past century, there has been no dramatic increase in supply. In fact, supply has generally lagged real economic growth. So the expectation for a world using gold or silver as currency is a gradual decrease of the price level.

Answer To :vox kadavergehorsamkeit - 3/20/2013 at 12:19 PM GMT
Mr. Lewis fed us a line of hooey, telling us that with the introduction of paper dollar bills, people just did not want to have silver ones anymore. The facts are that large new deposits of silver were found in the west and that severly depressed its value. And that is one of the chief reasons why commodity based currencies do not work. Those who advocate for a return to the gold standard never mention this dirty little secret. But dem's da facts. Ignore history and you repeat the mistakes.

 War Games: Russia Threatens Denmark, NATO Intercepts Russian Jets, NATO Launches Drills on Russian Border
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
It's obvious that US wants a war with Russia. I don't get the motives. Perhaps the experts see that the american economy is deteriorating and that the dollar domination will not prevail. And the remedy is an european war. In every european war the americans come as victors and they dominate the world for some decades. They need urgently another european war.

 Maguire says HSBC will close London vaults; Celente asks where GLD metal goes

Read this articleReply
Answer To :Esimon - 3/15/2015 at 8:08 PM GMT
I think people need to do some math, before making alarmist or incorrect comments:

The reason HSBC is closing their London Vaults is because they
only have enough gold left in the GLD to fit a room 20 ft x 10 ft x 8 ft.

Here is the math:

Gold in GLD =$30 Billion Dollars=25,000,000 ounces=62,500 x400 ounce
bars

One (1) 400 ounce bar is approx 44 cu inches
62,500 x 400 ounce bars =2,750,000 cu inches or 2750000/1728=1591
cubic feet

A room 20x10x8 is 1600 cubic feet.

That is not much Gold for supposedly a large gold ETF? and certainly,
you don't need 7 vaults to store their gold:)

 Gold Sentiment Not Bearish Enough

Gold has been severely manipulated ever since the shifty eyed crook nixon closed the conversion of devils dollars for GOLD.
That GOLD managed to reach $800 in the eighties and $1900 in 2011 is quite remarkable given that even then there was
manipulation going on via the Cheating Metal Exchange,Lousy Bullion Manipulators Association,Algorythm traders etc.
Golds natural course has even been distorted by the IMF,WB ,Central banks and massive hedge funds........that said how

 Warren Buffet on Gold  (5)
 - Food for thought - 24hgold
The Martian will notice, if he observes long enough, that very occasionally these vaulted reserves are spent. In the second world war, Britain spent a significant part of her gold reserve in buying essential supplies from the United States. Without these vital supplies, Britain would have collapsed. An important role for gold reserves, even in the absence of a monetary gold standard, is to serve as insurance at a time of extreme threat to the nation. We all hope that they are never used, and fortunately they rarely are, but that does not invalidate keeping them.

 Gold Sucks!  (3)
 - Gary Tanashian - Biwii
The last chart is getting there, but it is not comparing comparable things. What is needed is a chart of the ratio of the value, in US dollars, of all the gold in the world to the value (also in US dollars) of the US monetary base. These are comparable because (1) both quantities represent total amounts of money, in the same units (dollars), and (2) both play comparable roles as primary candidates for the world's reserve monetary base over the entire period from 1970 until now---albeit gold playing Cinderella who, apart from her brief appearance at the ball (ca. 1980), has been pushed into the background behind the ugly $ister.

The chart would still tell a story similar to the present one, although not sloping down as much to the right because the quantity o...

 CURRENCY CARNAGE!
 - Andy Hoffman - Miles Franklin
No doubt Hoffman is a prolific writer, but his problem is that it is basically the same story every time.
The world as we know it is coming to an end and to preserve one's wealth and protect yourself, buy precious metals and do it now,get them from MF.
Talk about flogging a dead horse.
Gold has been, as he has put it "manipulated down" by the PTB, from $1920 to $1160 since Sept 2011 and, of course it will not go below $1000 because, as you guessed it, 1) the manipulation will stop and 2) the world is running out of gold because supply is not keeping up with demand. No 2 is utter nonsense.
Of course during this same period you would have been completely stupid not to sell out of all your S&P and buy PM because, well it (the 500) went to record highs!

 Gold & Silver Market Morning
 - Julian D. W. Phillips - Gold Forecaster
Your conclusion that gold and silver will continue to decline is disheartening; but HONEST. The best part is when you say ~ "The news out of the U.S. was positive with new jobs created in the last month hitting 295,000 and unemployment down to 5.5%. This convinced investors that the U.S. economy has gained traction and will continue to grow at a strong rate."

Julian, I notice you didn't say "convinced me" but rather said "convinced investors". Yes, the paper shuffle and the numbers game "convinced investors" ~ but ~ we Worker Bees are CERTAIN: The U.S. economy is NOT gaining any traction. Investors must be quite a naive (gullible, simple, ingenuous) lot. Luckily I'm part of the 99% of humanity ~ who has no money to "invest"!

 - Oilprice.com - oilprice.com
"Admittedly there has been a production surplus since the beginning of 2014 but that is nothing new and is forecast to be back in balance by the end of this year. The increased production, then, is in response to increasing demand; hardly a recipe for a protracted period of low prices. "

Yes, increased demand when wages have flat-lined for years.
Perhaps you think bunker oil feeding the Baltic Dry Index will pick up the slack?
Have you looked at what is sitting off of Long Beach?
Maybe its that sub-prime Cadillac Escalade buyer fraction.
Yah, that's gonna be a long term trend to invest in.

Yes, prices will rise.

 Financial Repression Authority with Mebane Faber
 - Gordon Long - Market Analytics
"The US is only about 50% of global market cap but most US investors have a 'hometown bias" of having 70% of their portfolio in US securities. Faber has found that it consistently ranges from as low as 65 to as high as 85%. Meanwhile, when considered on a GDP basis the US is only about a fifth to 25% and on a valuation basis is the third most expensive. This would suggest the US has a headwind, especially after a six year run. An exposure of at least half to foreign investment seems more reasonable to Meb Faber."

And none of those foreign countries would engage in "capital controls" or "nationalization" of foreign owned assets?

 Bondholders “Bailed In” In Austria – EU Bondholders Today, U.S. Depositors Tomorrow?
 - Mark O'Byrne - gold.ie
"“Bail-in is now the rule” as Irish finance Minister Michael Noonan warned in June 2013. Noonan admitted that the move to not maintain deposits as sacrosanct was a “revolutionary move.”

The one thing we learn from history is that we learn nothing from history.
In the USA, after the Banking Act of 1933, deposits suddenly were insured (in 1934 - $2500, today - $250,000 for a 100X increase).
Prior to that, depositors were wise to use due diligence when choosing a bank.
Banks failed and were shuttered.
Deposits gone.
So "revolutionary"?
No, the correct term is "reversion to the mean".

It will soon become obvious that the term, "counter-party risk" is just a euphemism for "predictable collateral damage".
So what risk premium ...
