The Federal Reserve As An Engine Of Deflation (sic!) 
Although the Fed’s open market purchases of securities (always net) affect only the short end of the yield curve directly, through the transmission of risk-free bond speculation they will affect the rest of the yield curve indirectly. Thus the entire spectrum of interest rates will keep falling in consequence of the Fed’s open market purchases of Treasury bills (or equivalent). This is a powerful if unrecognized force in the economy causing a chain-reaction as follows:

Ending the Monetary Fiasco – Returning to Sound Money 
Money plays a key role in facilitating and intensifying the process of civilization. However, this holds true only for free-market money, while with government-controlled fiat money, the opposing tendency comes into operation, namely the process of decivilization.

The Complex Nature of Gold
We have already analyzed the impact of the U.S. dollar or interest rates on the gold prices, however we have never fully examined all factors that drive its price. Indeed, no other asset divides opinions so sharply. Have you ever seen people passionately discussing the nature of copper or the Australian dollar? Probably not, while gold kindles really extreme opinions. There are true gold bugs, who regard the yellow metal as the ultimate money and the only store of value, and gold skeptics, like

Gold and silver had a poor week, with no relief from drifting prices after the end of the second quarter.

Both metals rallied yesterday afternoon with gold down slightly but silver up 14 cents. In early European trading this morning there were further small gains.The news this week was dominated by Greece, which should have led

  Fed's Full Normalization
The US Federal Reserve has been universally lauded for the apparent success of its extreme monetary policy of recent years.  With key world stock markets near record highs, traders universally love the Fed?s zero-interest-rate and quantitative-easing campaigns.  But this celebration is terribly premature.  The full impact of these wildly-unprecedented policies won?t become apparent until they are fully normalized. Back in late 2008, the US stock markets

GOLD Bad for Gold: US Public Debt Levels Off, Debt-to-GDP Stabilizing
Current Macro Factors Driving Gold and Silver Prices(Continued from Prior Part) Why does debt-to-GDP ratio matter? The ratio of debt-to-GDP (gross domestic product) shows how much a country owes compared to how much it earns. Investors use the ratio to measure a country’s ability to make future payments on its debt. As US public debt rises beyond a certain point, the country will have to increase taxes and cut spending in productive areas in order to service the interest costs. That would be ba

Bubbles Never Pop Painlessly
Investors are obsessed over predicting the timing of the Fed's first interest rate hike. Will it raise the Fed Funds rate in September, or wait until next year? But it is far more important to get a grasp on the pace of rate hikes. Will it be a one and done move, or does this mark the beginning of an incremental tightening cycle? Those of us who are not in the inner circle are forced to only speculate. But one thing is certain: If history is any guide, whatever they do the Fed will g

As we know, world war two left Europe and the world economy destroyed. Many thinkers of that period thought that the world was about to enter a decades long depression as it worked to rebuild real assets lost in the conflict. It was this war that so impacted the idea of looking positively toward the fu

Managing trade deficits
Currency devaluation is seen by nearly every macro-economist to be the cure for trade deficits. Recently they have recommended it to Greece, arguing for the reintroduction of the drachma so that the Greek economy can become "competitive", and "rebalanced". This widespread assumption is easily demonstrated to be incorrect. Empirical evidence confirms the error: in the post-war years Germany and Japan were the strongest exporting nations despite persistent rises in their exchange rates, and the UK

Rates Are Rising for All the Wrong Reasons
Wall Street carnival barkers are relishing in the fantasy that the economy has finally achieved escape velocity. Therefore, they accept with alacrity that this is the primary reason why interest rates have started to rise. However, the fact still remains for the first half of 2015 GDP growth will probably be less than 1%. GDP contracted by 0.7% in the first quarter of 2015. The Atlanta Fed, whose GDP Now calculation has been on the money, now sees second quarter growth at 1.9%. There
