"Sir, I would say, "Old World Order" to return. To understand/explain better: A very easy way to view this "order", would be to simply say that the American Experience is reaching the end! 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

2008 Script To Be Used AGAIN With Precious Metals - Jeff Nielson
Over the past several months, readers have received several warnings in connection with the fake-rally in precious metals. The nature of these warnings can be easily summarized. The Next Crash is almost here. Another one of the Big Banks’ eight-year, bubble-and-crash cycles is coming to an end. Even many of the talking-heads in the mainstream media are now echoing that U.S. markets (in particular) are ripe for a crash . When the Big Banks (and their owners) deliberately detonate these

The Silvber Ruble Coin for Russia 
A Brief Description of the Silver Ruble Coin The Russian silver coin to be monetized would contain 1/2 ounce of pure silver, alloyed to .900 or .916 purity, for durability. The silver coin would be minted and monetized in Russian rubles by the Treasury of the Russian Federation, by a monetary quote issued by the Treasury. The coin would bear no stamped monetary value. The monetized silver coin would become a parallel currency, which would circulate in parallel with the ruble currency issued by the Russian Central Bank. The Silver Ruble coins would form part of "M-0" ("M-zero") which is the narrowest gauge of money supply. Thus M-0 would be made up of Russian Silver Ruble coins, along with the banknotes and base-metal coins issued by the Central Bank. For the Russian Silver Ruble coin to remain in circulation as money, and form part of M-0 indefinitely, it would be indispensable that the coin receive its monetary value in rubles by means of a "monetary quote" which would be issued by the Treasury. This quote would be communicated to the population daily by the Media. Otherwise, a traditional stamped value on the coin in rubles would soon be surpassed by rises in the price of silver and the coin would be demonetized, as were all its predecessors in the last century.

Gold Price: USD 65,000/oz in 5 years?
16 June 2021 is five years from today. What will the gold price be 16 June 2021? Currencies are Worthless As the world’s fiat paper currencies have lost 99% or more of their purchasing power in the last 100 years, we have to understand that fiat paper currencies are not a suitable unit of account to accurately measure prices. Gold is in fact a much better measuring stick for value than paper currencies. A currency doesn’t measure anything. It just has an arbitrary value placed upon it by the pop

  Global Times - Hard lessons from China's silver standard 
History will repeat, but this time around America will not be able to coin silver Trade Dollars to conduct trade with Asia. Oops. Oh, where O where did my empire go? Source:  [08:30 July 15 2009] Chinese macroeconomic historian Ray Huang used to say the Qing Dynasty never understood monetary and fiscal policy, and therefore was unable to compete against the West. In those days, monetary policy in China was essentially tied to silver, the national money standard since t

The Saudi Squeeze
Authored by Steve H. Hanke of The Johns Hopkins University. Follow him on Twitter @Steve_Hanke. The rate of growth in a country’s money supply, broadly measured, will determine the rate of growth in its nominal GDP. For Saudi Arabia, the following table presents a snapshot of the relationship between the growth in the money supply (M3) and nominal GDP.   The chart below shows the course of M3. Following the oil price plunge of September 2014, the growth in M3 has slowed. The rate of nominal GDP

How Much Money should there be ? 
Most economists believe that a growing economy requires a growing money stock, on grounds that growth gives rise to a greater demand for money which must be accommodated. Failing to do so, it is maintained, will lead to a decline in the prices of goods and services, which in turn will destabilize the economy and lead to an economic recession-or, even worse, depression

Milton Friedman Blames the Federal Reserve
I've been setting up a discussion of Milton Friedman's version of the 1920s and 1930s, as expressed in his book A Monetary History of the United States, 1867-1960. It has been very influential over the years. A more recent update of basically the same theory is in Allan Meltzer's History of the Federal Reserve, Volume 1, from 2004.

Fed's Rate Normalization Will Be Far From Normal
The Fed traditionally embarks on an interest rate tightening cycle when inflation has started to run hot. This decline in the purchasing power of the dollar will nearly always manifest itself in: above trend nominal GDP, rising long-term interest rates and a positively sloping yield curve. These prevailing conditions are all indications of a market that is battling inflation; and thus prompts the Fed to start playing catch up with the inflation curve. For example, the last time the Fed

  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.

Book Review:
In a time when it seems like central banks call the tune that everyone has to dance to, a book named Who Needs the Fed? (2016) is a deliberate provocation. Like his earlier book Popular Economics (2015), John Tamny takes on the potentially arcane issues of money, credit and banking with the help of contemporary tales of business adventure. The result is both accessible and sophisticated – more sophisticated than most academic work, whose obtuse mathematics actually amount to clumsy oversimplific

Regulation – the hidden curse
Regulations are nearly always introduced with the best intentions.In financial services, they aim to stop unscrupulous brokers and banks from ripping off the public through bad practices. Manufacturers are banned from making products which are dangerous to children, the environment, or which might fail through shoddy workmanship. However, state intervention in commercial matters is based on shaky grounds, consistent with denial of the role and workings of markets, and an overriding desire to int

  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

Will Gold Standard Return?
The gold standard has been making headlines recently. What does it mean for the gold market? On Tuesday, Bloomberg published an interesting article entitled “Make America Gold Again: Calls for Everyone’s Favorite Standard Are Back”. It argues that the idea of fixing the U.S. dollar to gold is regaining popularity. It should not be surprising. When times are tough (or when recovery after a financial crisis is sluggish), alternatives to mainstream economic theories become more popular. Moreover, t

The Eurozone is the greatest danger
World-wide, markets are horribly distorted, which spells danger not only to investors, but to businesses and their employees as well, because it is impossible to allocate capital efficiently in this financial environment.With markets everywhere disrupted by interventions from central banks, governments, and their sovereign wealth funds, economic progress is being badly hampered, and therefore so is the ability of anyone to earn the profits required to pay down the highs levels of debt we see tod

The Biggest Bubbles: China vs. the U.S. - Jeff Nielson
There is perhaps no other area where the tunnel-vision, hypocrisy, and corruption of the U.S. media is more visible than with respect to its nearly incessant China-bashing. Previous commentaries have exposed such vacuous drivel again and again and again. While the subject matter of the Corporate media’s China-bashing varies month to month, regularly interspersed in this propaganda are numerous variations of “China’s economy is in a bubble.” Once again this week, this is a theme in the U.S.

The non-linearity of inflation psychology and the present danger of stagflation
The non-linearity of inflation psychology and the present danger of stagflationIntroductionEver since the 2008-09 global financial crisis there has been a lively debate between those anticipating a prolonged deflation and those predicting a transition to inflation. In certain respects, both sides of the debate have been correct, if sometimes confusing monetary, credit and price inflation. Recent data indicate, however, that the terms of debate are now shifting decisively in favor of those expect

The Life Cycle of Money
In the aftermath of the global economic crisis of 2008-2009, governments throughout the world have fostered a tenuous recovery predicated on massive increases in money supplies and debasement of currencies. Note however, that monetary debasement is not a recent phenomenon; it is simply the natural life cycle of money.There are six well-defined stages in the life cycle of money. This progression has occurred in every dominant civilization

Should the Gold Price Keep Up with Inflation?
The popular belief is that gold is a good hedge against inflation. Owning gold will protect you from rising prices. Is that true? Most people define inflation as rising prices. Economists will quibble and say technically it’s the increase in the quantity of money, however Milton Friedman expressed the popular belief well. He said, “Inflation is always and everywhere a monetary phenomenon.” There you have it. The Federal Reserve increases the money supply and that, in turn, causes an increase in
