Economic and Financial Outlook (Part I)
“The coming European monetary crack-up is rooted in the fact that the ECB’s financial repression and ZIRP policies have—like everywhere else—-destroyed honest price discovery in Europe’s massive sovereign debt market. There is no other way to explain the preposterously low 10-year bond yields prevailing this morning for the various and sundry fiscal cripples that comprise the EU-19.” David Stockman’s Contracorner The bold script is Mr. Stockman’s emphasis, although it serves to elucidate our me

'Two Percent Inflation' and The Fed's Current Mandate
Over the last 100 years the Fed has had many mandates and policy changes in its pursuit of becoming the chief central economic planner for the United States. Not only has it pursued this utopian dream of planning the US economy and financing every boondoggle conceivable in the welfare/warfare state, it has become the manipulator of the premier world reserve currency. As Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke explained to me, the once profoundly successful world currency - gold - was no lo

The Swiss Franc Will Collapse 
One cannot explain the collapse of this currency with the conventional view. “They will print money to infinity,” may be popular but it’s not accurate. The coming destruction has nothing to do with the quantity of money. It is a story of what happens when interest rates fall into a black hole. Yields Have Fallen Beyond Zero The Swiss yield curve looks like no

"Helicopter Money and Debt Cancellation" Are the Endgame
The European Central Bank today revealed its long-awaited asset-purchase program, also known as “Quantitative Easing.” The ECB will purchase 60 billion euros of debt assets per month beginning in March, and continuing to at least September 2016, for a total of 1.14 trillion of asset purchases. These purchases will be paid for “with the printing press,” or more technically, an expansion of the monetary base. This comes on top of the Bank of Japan’s own stepped-up

The European Central Bank Commits Monetary Suicide
Yesterday the European Central Bank (ECB) announced an expanded 1.1 trillion euro (US$1.3 trillion) asset purchase program to start in March 2015 and continue through September 2016 (19 months) that will include the purchases of sovereign (national government) debt. It plans to purchase roughly 60 billion euros ($68 billion) worth of securities monthly, up from about 13 billion, with most of the additional purchases to be allocated to sovereign (national government) debt with a quarter expected

When This Ends, Everybody Gets Hurt
Central banks around the globe have taken us all into unchartered territory, where the possible paths boil down to a binary outcome: either it all works out or it doesn’t. Unfortunately, the ‘it all works out’ outcome has a very low probability of actually happening; so the binary outcome isn't equally weighted like a coin toss.  By ‘working out’, here’s what the central banks all striving (praying?) for: Inflation of 2% to 3% per year Economic growth of at least 6% per year (nominal) and a rea

Gold in Euros Surges As ECB Print Trillion Euros and ‘Grexit’ Election Sunday
Stocks, bonds and precious metals surged yesterday as markets cheered the latest wave of money printing on a grand scale.Gold surged 3 per cent in euro terms (see chart below) after Mario Draghi in the ECB announced a massive quantitative easing or QE programme of over EUR 1 trillion from March 2015 to September 2016. Listen hereThe QE programme is even larger than expected at €60 billion every month rather than the €50 billion that had been expected. The euro fell another 0.9 per cent against t

Euro QE: Sell Gold on ECB Quanti-Climax 
There's so much quanticipation of Euro QE, even the Financial Times says 'Buy gold'...! WE'D WONDERED how long it would take. So here came the Financial Times...right on cue.  "Gold rally due as central banks add risk," it predicted online Tuesday.  Newsflash for the newsroom. From November's new 5-year low in the Dollar, gold had already risen 13% for US investors.  British savers had seen physical gold rise 20% since then...and priced in the Eu

How Money Vanishes
Changes in asset prices or any other prices do not cause changes in money supply, although many of the people who comment on the financial markets and economics believe otherwise. We were recently reminded of this mistaken belief when reading an analysis of oil's large price decline that included the assertion that hundreds of billions of dollars had been eliminated from the economy as a result of this price change. Plunges in asset prices invariably provoke comments along the lines of "a huge a

"We inflate our paper currency, we repair commerce with unlimited credit, and are presently visited with unlimited bankruptcy." - R.W. Emerson, The Young American, 1844 Joseph Goebbels was Germany’s Minister of Propaganda from 1933 to 1945. He once said that if you tell a big enough lie and keep repeating it, people eventually come to believe it. World governments, together with their media lackeys, seem to have taken Goebbels’ comments to heart. They omit facts and distort the truth to suit t

OVERWHELMED BY REALITY
Chalk this up as another article I hadn’t planned to write, but was inspired by the incredible events of the day.  To wit, following the momentous events I discussed Wednesday, today’s historic Swiss National Bank announcement – and epic Euro plunge – has shifted the global economic meltdown into sixth gear.  Sorry if it’s a bit rushed, but I’m on a schedule today, and just want to espouse my thoughts In a nutshell, I was dead on when I wrote three months ago that “2008 is back.”  Only this time

Straining at gold gnats while swallowing central bank camels
Chris Powell characterised my post on marginal miners as "straining at gnats while swallowing camels". It is an accusation of hypocrisy, that I'm being "very strict and precise in smaller matters of the law, but careless and loose in weightier matters" (see here for an explanation of Chris' use of Matthew 23:24). I'm entitled to a defend myself I guess. Firstly, Chris said my post "argues today that gold's price is being kept down in large part". In large part? The very title of my post said "Go

Real Gold Explorers Take No Prisoners Says Thibaut Lepouttre
Gold-tracker Thibaut Lepouttre treks the world hunting for solid gold mines and companies with the guts to dig for riches. The editor of Caesars Report and Sprout Money tells The Gold Report why the price of gold is moving sideways for the moment. Don't be fooled by cowardly gold bears, says Lepouttre; invest in muddy, muscled, bull-headed explorers with noses tuned to sniffing out the purest form of value.

Gold and Commodity Cycles
We have so far analyzed the current situation in the oil market, suggesting that falling oil prices can indicate another recession in the not so distant future. So the obvious question arises: would it be positive or negative for the gold market? The answer depends on whether gold is pro-cyclical or not. Some economists believe that gold, as oil, rises in a boom and falls during the bust. We consider that opinion too simplified. However, there are indeed strong arguments that commodity prices ar

Enjoy The Ride on The Inflation/Deflation Rollercoaster
Politicians and central bankers are desperately trying to convince investors that the economy has returned to what they deem as a "pre-crisis normality". But the truth is the global economy has never been in a more fragile condition. In an example of just how precarious the Fed-engineered asset bubbles have become, all of the 2014 U.S. equity market gains were wiped out by just a few really bad trading days in October. That's correct, the Dow Jones, S&P 500 and the NADAQ averages were

2015: the year of the slump?
2014 ended with two ominous developments: the strength of the US dollar and a collapse in key commodity prices. It is tempting to view both events as one, but the continuing fall in oil prices through December reveals they are sequential: first there was a greater preference for dollars compared with other currencies and this still persists, followed by a developing preference for all but the weakest currencies at the expense of raw materials and energy. These are two steps on a path that should

Market Report: A steady start for 2015
Gold and silver started the year at a muted point, with gold at $1168 and silver at $15.50, from which modest rallies have developed, with gold up 4% and silver 6%. These rises were against a background of high volatility in equity markets, a strong US dollar and very weak oil prices. The firmly entrenched bearish opinions in recent m

In his extraordinary book Democracy: The God that Failed, Hans Hermann Hoppe points out that the process of civilization is stopped when government continually violates property rights. The natural process of civilization comes through delaying consumption, saving, and building capital. Undoing it leads to higher societal time preference.
