The Right Question…
Last week I mentioned that my grandson Josh (Andy’s boy) was accepted at McGill University in Montreal, the University of Indiana’s business school and the University of Michigan.  He is interested in pursuing a degree in business and is taking all the requisite (advanced) classes in economics. He called me yesterday and asked me, “Which Fed Policy would be better, Quantitative Easing or Tapering and what can be done to make things better?”  Geese Louise!  When I was his age the only question I

Should We Use Probability in Economics?
Modern economics in addition to sophisticated mathematics also employs probability distributions. What is probability? The probability of an event is the proportion of times the event happens out of a large number of trials.For instance, the probability of obtaining heads when a coin is tossed is 0.5. This does not mean that when a coin is tossed 10 times, five heads are always obtained.However, if the experiment is repeated a large number of times then it is likely that 50% will be obtained. Th

Take It To The Bank: Interest Rates Won’t Rise
How Not to Predict Interest Rates We continue our hiatus from capital destruction to look further at interest rates. Last week, our Report was almost prescient. We said: The first thing we must say about this is that people should pick one: (A) rising stock market or (B) rising interest rates. They both cannot be true (though we could have falling rates and falling stocks). We write these Reports over the weekend. At the time of last week’s writing session, Friday’s close on the S&P was 2757 (fu

When will the next credit crisis occur?
The timing of any credit crisis is set by the rate at which the credit cycle progresses. People don’t think in terms of the credit cycle, wrongly believing it is a business cycle. The distinction is important, because a business cycle by its name suggests it emanates from business. In other words, the cycle of growth and recessions is due to instability in the private sector and this is generally believed by state planners and central bankers.This is untrue, because cycles of business activity h

Inflation And Alan Greenspan 
Alan Greenspan 1967 "As the supply of money increases relative to the supply of tangible assets in the economy, prices must eventually rise. In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. There is no safe store of value". Alan Greenspan 1981 "A return to a gold standard (would be) a basic change in our economic processes. A gold-based monetary system will necessarily prevent fiscal imprudence. Once achieved, the discipline of the gold standard would surely reinforce anti-inflation policies, and make it far more difficult to resume financial profligacy".

CFTC / SEC Hearing on Cryptocurrencies Mostly Bullish
I wasn’t expecting that much open-mindedness from a government institution. The Committee on Banking Housing and Urban Affairs met this morning to conduct a hearing entitled, Virtual Currencies: The Oversight Role of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission. The witnesses were Jay Clayton, Chairman of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC); and Christopher Giancarlo, Chairman, U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). The co

The “Money Supply” with a Gold Standard 
Usually you hear a couple things about the "money supply" with a gold standard. The first thing you hear is that it is determined by gold mining. The second thing you hear is that it is limited to the amount of gold held "in reserve," whatever that means. Sometimes you hear that it is determined by the "current account balance." All of this is bunk.

The “Money Supply” with a Gold Standard 2 : 1880 - 1970 
The United States, from 1789 to 1860, had a libertarian "free banking" system. Anyone could issue currency, but it had to be pegged to gold. This "gold peg" was a value peg

Monetary Metals Brief 2018
Predicting the likely path of the prices of the metals in the near term is easy. Just look at the fundamentals. We have invested many man-years in developing the theory, model, and software to calculate it. Every week we publish charts and our calculated fundamental prices. However, predicting the outlook for a longer period of time is much harder. The fundamental shows the relative pressures in the spot and futures markets, but they only show a snapshot. They do not predict how those pressures

MOVE IN COMMODITIES, DOLLAR, INTEREST RATES – ROAD TO HYPERINFLATION
2018 is starting right on cue. Inflationary pressures have been latent for quite some time but have recently shown the world what is to come in the next few years. How could anyone believe the propaganda that there is no inflation. It has of course suited the market manipulators. But the fake wizardry of the central bankers is now about to be revealed. Since the early 1980s the interest rate cycle were in a strong down trend. When the financial crisis started in 2007, central banks panicked and

A New Bull Market In Commodities Is Emerging
We’ve all watched in amazement, while the equities markets around the world have risen to new highs. On Wall Street hardly a week goes by without a new record. There comes a time however when a sector becomes so overbought, that smart money begins to leave and search for a sector that has been overlooked. That moment is now at hand, as can be seen in our first chart – courtesy sources listed. This chart compares equities to commodities. In 1970, 2000 and today, equities have become overpriced

  There Is More Where This Gift Has Come ...
On Wednesday, March 18, another handsome gift was delivered by the Fed to the bond bulls. It was the announcement that the Open Market Committee has made a unanimous decision for the central bank to buy $300 billion in long-term Treasury bonds and notes over the next six-month period. The yield on the 30-year Treasury bond immediately fell from 3.

Silver as a Strategic Metal and Why Prices Will Soar
The arguments in favor of silver as an investment asset are growing rapidly. In the opinion of the Jackass, silver is the most under-valued hard asset in existence, with the highest potential for price appreciation on the globe. To begin with, central banks own no silver, but do own huge tracts of gold. Industry has huge demand for silver, but a trifling amount for gold demand. The investment demand is another key factor in favor of silver, but also for gold. Ever since the tech telecom bust in

Inflation Tsunami Ahead
Inflation is one of the most misunderstood, misused and lied about topics in economics. The Fed professes to know what causes it: an overly employed workforce. But, perhaps it is aware this is false and intentionally promulgates the ruse of growth as inflation’s progenitor because central banks want to deflect attention away from its money printing. Nevertheless, one thing is abundantly clear, we all have to agree that the Fed can’t readily control the exact rate of inflation; nor can it direct

Believing The Impossible 
"Alice laughed: "There's no use trying," she said; "one can't believe impossible things." "I daresay you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast." ~ Lewis Carroll, Through The Looking Glass To borrow from Lewis Carroll: To have confidence in today's central bank-created bubble markets, we have to believe in six impossible things.

Pakistan is the closest the NY Times will get to gold-rigging story
Cast your bread upon the waters, the Bible says somewhere, and pray that something comes back besides overweight seagulls. GATA does a lot of casting, usually without result, but you never know when and where someone will pick up on it, and this week a teacher and writer in Pakistan, Taha Ali, did. Ali, who writes for Pakistan's national English-language newspaper, the Express-Tribune, cited GATA in a commentary about bitcoin to explain why the cryptocurrency rose so sharply in price amid an exp

Mises Explains the Difference Between Circulation Credit and Commodity Credit
In the slump of a cycle, businesses that were thriving come to experience difficulties or go under. These errors aren't specific to any one firm. They occur in tandem with whole sectors of the economy. People who were wealthy yesterday have become poor today. Factories that were busy yesterday are shut down today, and workers are out of jobs.Businessmen themselves are confused as to why. They cannot make sense of why certain business practices that were profitable yesterday are losing money toda

Never Underestimate the Replacement Power of Equities Within a (HYPER) Inflationary Spiral 
Before I launch into one of my classic, bitter, vitriolic diatribes against all forms of modern-day interventionalist-type, fraudulent excuses for what use to be "free markets," have a gander at the chart below. Pay particular attention to the smiles on all of those beaming faces. . . Alan Greenspan, Ben Bernanke, sidekick Hank Paulson, "Rescue Queen" Janet Yellen, and finally Donald "the Swamp Filler" Trump have all conspired and colluded to ensure that the world has perennially rising stock

Upside Risk for Gold in 2018
Black swans are very surprising and rare events. As they are beyond the realm of normal expectations, it is impossible to predict them. However, analysts do not care about such details and they outdo each other in forecasts. Our favorite is the list of ten outrageous predictions published by the Saxo Bank. The risk events include: the loss of Fed’s independence for the U.S. Treasury, the plunge in Bitcoin prices as government strike back, the abandonment of the yield curve control by the Bank of
