  Hyperinflation or Hyperdeflation? 
The reason why QTM fails is that money is not one-dimensional. It is in fact two-dimensional. Quantity is one, and the velocity of circulation is the other dimension. Central banks control the former, and the market firmly controls the latter. As long as fair weather lasts, velocity may be ignored. But as soon as the weather grows foul, velocity returns with a vengeance. If it increases, we talk about inflation. If it decreases, we talk about deflation. In the extreme

Capitalism Crosses The Rubicon - The Second American Revolution
In capitalist economies, capital, i.e. 'money', is created by central banks in the form of credit; and the cost of that credit-central bank interest rates-determines the rate of economic growth. In the end game, however, this is not so.In the end game, credit's expansive and inflationary incentives are offset by the collapse of massive speculative bubbles resulting in dangerously low levels of economic activity and a commensurate plunge in the velocity of money.When this happens, central banks c

Bond Bubble Will Explode Violently
Central banks are incapable of saving economies or creating growth. The only thing a central bank can do is create inflation. These market manipulators set forth on a journey seven years ago to save the world by engaging in massive monetary manipulation, euphemistically called Quantitative Easing (QE), and a Zero interest rate policy known as (ZIRP). As I could have told them before they started, all this easy money will fail to create viable growth. The economy, held back by massive d

No Money, No Growth
Last August, the US Fed stopped creating new currency out of thin air and dumping it into the banking system. Which is another way of saying the US money supply stopped growing. Here's the adjusted monetary base -- a proxy for the amount of new currency the Fed is creating -- over the past eight months: Then a whole bunch of other things started happening. First, the dollar soared, becoming by far the world's strongest currency. And Americans started buying less stuff: And then US fa

Gold Stocks: Three Keys For The Bulls
.The first four months of 2015 have seen many gold stocks stage tremendous rallies.In many cases, but not all, the gains appear to be "here to stay".2.When some individual gold stocks rise by 100% - 400% in just four months, investors can begin to feel it's a stock picker's market.While the best stocks will always produce bigger returns than the worst ones in any sector, I think what is occurring in the precious metal stocks is something very much "bigger".3.

America's Forgotten War Against the Central Banks
In order to pay debts incurred from the Seven Years War with France, King George III of England sought to heavily tax the colonies in America. In 1742, the British Resumption Act required that taxes and other debts be paid in gold.

Market Report: Bond yields rise and Greece failing
The prices of gold and silver initially rallied this week from the lows of $1170 and $15.93 respectively last Friday to challenge the $1200 level for gold and $16.70 for silver on Wednesday, before losing about half these gains yesterday. On the year gold, is now hardly changed while silver is up 5% and is one of the best performing assets in financial markets over this timescale.Precious metals appear to be locked into the same torpor as other markets, but there are two developing stories.

  A Short History of the Gold Cartel 
Governments want a low gold price to make national currencies look good. Gold is recognizable the world over as the "canary in the coal mine" when it comes to money. A rising gold price blurts the unpleasant truth that a national currency is being poorly managed and that its purchasing power is being inflated.

The Bank of England, 1844-1913 2: The Banking Department
We are continuing our look at the Bank of England during the period 1844-1913. In 1844, the Bank fell under a new regulation and reorganization, in which it was separated into two entities, the Issue Department and the Banking Department. The Issue Department was solely responsible for paper banknotes, and operated a system very similar to the "Making Change" or currency-board type system we looked at earlier.

How the Global Money Supply Impacts GLD
Gold Indicators Still Point to Pressure on Gold Prices (Part 11 of 12)(Continued from Part 10) Global money supply As a proxy for the global money supply, we’ve taken the money supply of the United States, Europe (the Eurozone and the United Kingdom), Japan, India, China, Russia, Brazil, and Turkey. The money supply used is called M2, expressed in US dollars for each country at prevailing exchange rates. In the above chart, you can see that the pace of money supply stabilized in recent months.

  The Collapse of Cash 
Despite all of the central bank manipulations over the past seven years, it is finally becoming clear economies will not be able to achieve escape velocity. The U.S. central bank has the longest track record of treading down the path of monetary manipulations. And has achieved anemic average annual growth of 2.2% since 2010. Therefore, to further demonstrate the failure of money printing to engender economic growth, the dismal Q1 GDP read of just 0.2 % displays the failure of this po

Opportunities in Impending Mega-Moves
"I told them the real 2014 deficit was $5 trillion, not the $500 billion or $300 billion or whatever it was announced to be this year. Almost all the liabilities of the government are being kept off the books by bogus accounting. . all the spending on defense, repairing the roads, paying for the Supreme Court Justice salaries, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, welfare, everything, and take all those expenditures into the future, and compare that to all the taxes that are projected to come in,

Why deflation is unlikely 
Financial markets are becoming aware that the US economy is stalling, so investors increasingly take the view that with demand likely to stagnate or even fall, prices for goods and services will soften. This is already threatening to be the situation in a number of other advanced nations, with negative interest rates to combat it becoming commonplace. For this reason, gold and silver priced in dollars are expected by many traders to drift lower. Putting the prices of precious metals to one side

Market Report: A week of further consolidation
Precious metals continued their consolidation this week, with gold drifting off $10 to $1195 as of last night, and silver by $0.42 to $15.85. Intra-day trading ranges are relatively tight with buyers of physical metal on the dips and sellers of paper contracts capping rises. There is little doubt that the global economic outlook, with China's economy slowing and earlier expectations for US growth trimmed back, is affecting sentiment. An analyst's note from Morgan Stanley forecast lower gold pric

All Paper is STILL a short position on gold 
The gold derivatives pyramid is a vigorous free market creature. It cannot be put down with a simple declaration that the paper is no longer redeemable in gold, as governments did with currency. It is a short selling scheme that has become a trap from which few short sellers will escape

China Stock Mania?s Global Risk
The Chinese stock markets have been rocketing higher in a popular speculative mania.  New Chinese investors are flocking to their local red-hot markets, borrowing heavily to buy hyper-speculative stocks.  Like all past manias, this one is guaranteed to end badly.  And when China?s parabolic stock indexes inevitably collapse, the global stock markets face serious risks of getting sucked into that fear-fueled stampede. The Chinese people are endlessly fas

  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.

Much speculation abounds regarding China’s gold holdings.  They officially claim 1,054 tons as of April 2009.  We suspected they might “re” announce their holdings again last year at this time as it was five years after their last announcement and China has a habit of “five year plans”.  Alisdair Mcleod believes they have 20,000 tons or more which very well may be the case, I can easily make a case their holdings are far in excess of 10,000 tons just from the data since 2009.  In the words of ou

3 Daggers for This Equity Bubble
The recent stock market volatility has caused the major averages to lose nearly all their gains for 2015. However, it is clear stock prices are still extremely overvalued by virtually every metric, especially when viewed in the absence of GDP and earnings growth. For starters, the Cyclically Adjusted PE Ratio on the S&P 500 is currently 27, whereas the normal level for this longer-term valuation metric is just 15. Also, the ratio of Total Market Cap to GDP is currently at 125%. This re
