  Hyperinflation around the Globe 
Angola (1991-1999) Angola went through the worst inflation from 1991 to 1995. In early 1991, the highest denomination was 50,000 kwanzas. By 1994, it was 500,000 kwanzas. In the 1995 currency reform, 1 kwanza reajustado was exchanged for 1,000 kwanzas. The highest denomination in 1995 was 5,000,000 kwanzas reajustados. In the 1999 currency reform, 1 new kwanza was exchanged for 1,000,000 kwanzas reajustados. The overall impact of hyperinflation: 1 new kwanza = 1,000,000,000 pre-1991 kwanzas.

Conspiracy fact: Top central bankers meet secretly every six weeks at BIS
By Michael Sauga and Anne Seith Der Spiegel, Hamburg, Germany Wednesday, April 16, 2014 Since the financial crisis, central banks have slashed interest rates, purchased vast quantities of sovereign bonds, and bailed out banks. Now, though, their influence appears to be on the wane with measures producing paltry results. Do they still have control? Once every six weeks, the most powerful players in the global economy meet on the 18th floor of an ugly office building near the train station in the

Glaring Q.E. Failure Spotted 
Sometimes pictures are far more effective in communicating an important point. They are extremely effective in undermining respect and confidence, when in the cartoon format. A sequence of graphics struck the cognitive circuits recently. Long explanations will not serve well. The US Federal Reserve has been printing money since 2011 to cover USGovt debt securities in a frenetic manner. They have lost control. They call it stimulus, when it is actually the opposite. It does assist the speculators

US Monetary Inflation Slowdown
On the US monetary inflation front, the news is that there isn't much in the way of news. As depicted below, the year-over-year rate of TMS (True Money Supply) growth hit a 5-year low of around 7% at the end of last year and has since edged a little higher.There are only two ways that money can be added to the US money supply. The first is via Fed asset monetisation, which is how most new US dollars have come into existence since September of 2008 and how almost all new US dollars came into exis

Fed Rigs Markets, Not the Flash Boys 
There's been a lot of attention being paid to high frequency trading (HFT) as of late. The question has been raised as to whether or not HFT rigs markets. It is true that HFT adds nothing to GDP and is simply a legalized form of high-tech front running. However, the real problem with the stock market -- and the economy as a whole -- isn't the fact that HFT skims pennies off transactions from institutional traders; but rather that the Fed has rigged interest rates and asset prices to

The Ultimate Insider Tells It Like It Is
In last week’s “Conspiracy Theory,” we highlighted how the Miles Franklin Blog deals solely with fact, not speculation.  My background as a classically-trained financial analyst guides every word I write; and in Bill Holter and myself – who both cut our blogosphere “teeth” on the GATA website, you are reading two of the world’s foremost “gold manipulation experts.”  And when I say foremost, I truly believe you can count the amount of people that know more on the fingers of two or three hands.  T

Economic Sanctions Not Key Cause of Russia’s Possible Recession
According to commentators, sanctions imposed by the US and the European Union are pushing Russia toward a recession. However, we hold that some key Russian economic data have been displaying a weakening prior to the annexation of the Crimea to Russia. This raises the likelihood that sanctions might not be the key factor for an emerging recession. The yearly rate of growth of monthly real gross domestic product (GDP) eased to 0.3 percent in February from 0.7 percent in January and 1.8 percent i

Welcome to the Currency War, Part 15: Europeans Ordered to Start Con
For the past couple of years the European Central Bank has been the only sane inmate in the asylum. Unfortunately, in a crazy world being sane just gets you into trouble. Sound monetary policy leads to a strong currency, which in a currency war is tantamount to unilateral disarmament. Unable to export sufficiently to a world of weak currencies, the eurozone is tipping into deflationary depression (with several members already there and unable to get out). So... Draghi Hunts

  Banker Liars, New Currency, Fatal Errors, Psycho War 
A global clash of nations is underway in full gear. The storm is picking up speed, power, intensity, and damaging force. Many are the swirls of the current situation. A hodgepodge of topics have been caught and trapped, best to discharge on paper, the effect like a wondrous enema. The banker lies grow thicker, as they are unable to so easily deceive anymore. The potential currency fix appears more imminent, as the solution seen as an assault on American interests (military angle). Any nation get

The Technically Driven Market: Wash and Rinse Cycles In a Trend
Hot money blunts the impact of all but the most extreme events in the real world. Computer algorithms dominate the trading environments in volume, speed, and short term gamesmanship.  A 'random walk' my ass. The market becomes an endless churn and burn with an upwards bias supported by the Fed's expansion of the money supply. The market is notable for the bifurcation into professionals and marks, with the occasional warring factions between the monied interests.  Wash, churn, rinse, repeat.

  Canada Fluorspar, Colossus Minerals: Proof Positive that U.S. Quantitative Easing is Undermining Can 
While the media tone of coverage of Canada Fluorspar’s (TSX.V:CFI) buyout by Golden Gate Capital of San Francisco for a measly $38.8 million is decidedly congratulatory, the deal is better considered in the light of the loss of yet another would-be major contributor to future Canadian GDP, thanks in no small part to the oblivious Canadian Government. While America prints what amounts to subsidies for equity investors in U.S. markets, that incentive entices capital from around the world away from

The Screaming Fundamentals For Owning Gold 
This report lays out the investment thesis for gold. Silver is mentioned only where necessary, as a separate report of equal scope will be forthcoming on that topic. Various factors lead me to conclude that gold is one investment that you can park for the next ten or twenty years, confident that it will perform well. Timing and logic for both entering and finally exiting gold as an investment are laid out in the full report. The punch line is this: Gold (and silver) is not in bubble territory, a

Rising Rate Realities
The entire global economy now clings precariously to one crucial phenomenon. That is, how much longer can the central banks of the developed world artificially suppress interest rates at near zero percent? The violently-negative market reaction to Janet Yellen's comments during her first press conference was a clear indication of how vulnerable the stock market is to the eventual reality of rising interest rates. All Ms. Yellen did was remind investors that the Fed Funds Rate would hav

Koo Warns on Fed “QE Trap” and Inflation
Richard Koo, Nomura Research chief economist also known as “Mr. Balance Sheet Recession” for popularizing the term a few years back, explains why it won’t be so easy for central banks to unwind their massive money printing efforts that began after the financial crisis. He notes excess reserves in the U.S. banking system are sufficient to increase the money supply by 19 times and that this could lead to a 1900 percent inflation rate. He makes a good point that central banks that have implemented

Meet "Lowflation": Deflation's Scary Pal 
In recent years a good part of the monetary debate has become a simple war of words, with much of the conflict focused on the definition for the word "inflation." Whereas economists up until the 1960's or 1970's mostly defined inflation as an expansion of the money supply, the vast majority now see it as simply rising prices. Since then the "experts" have gone further and devised variations on the word "inflation" (such as "deflation," "disinflation," and "stagflation"). And while past central b
