  The Minimum Wage Farce A Case Study
Election time in America these days is definitely not a time when one should be searching the various pearls of ?wisdom? dumped on the airwaves, billboards, and newsprint for the truth. Such is especially the case when it comes to economics. So twisted is the entire notion that the stock market is equated to ?economics? as if it is some ersatz term that is used whenever someone wants to pull the wool over our eyes. That is just but one example. This election cycle is no

What causes the moves in the U.S. dollar?
Understanding the relationship between the U.S. dollar and gold is necessary to successfully invest in gold. However, it is not sufficient, because changes in the USD exchange rates cannot be analyzed outside the economic context: gold, although not officially money, is traded like a currency. Therefore, long-term investors should not analyze the gold market in isolation or confine themselves to observe the U.S. dollar index. The price of gold reflects the complex financial world and hence depen

A "Rules-Based" Monetary System Means a Fixed-Value System
I think there is a little too much abstraction in discussion of monetary topics today. For example, here’s former Fed Chairman Paul Volcker, speaking last June: By now I think we can agree that the absence of an official, rules-based, cooperatively managed monetary system has not been a great success. In fact, international financial crises seem at least as frequent and more destructive in impeding economic stability and growth. There’s a fa

Most of The World Panics -- Is The US Next?
It's been quite a month. In late October Japan, despite a year of fairly aggressive quantitative easing, dropped back into recession and concluded that even easier money was the cure for its ills. It announced a debt monetization plan of almost science-fictional proportions in which the amount of new yen to be created, as a percentage of GDP, will be equivalent to $3 trillion a year in the US.

Market report: Better tone for volatile gold
Gold has had a volatile week, but rose from $1147 last Friday afternoon to a high of $1205 on Tuesday. On Wednesday the price moved between down $25 on the latest opinion poll on the Swiss referendum, then recovered to $23 before falling again on the release of the Fed's FOMC minutes. However, despite these unsettling swings gold rose on the week by about $30 overall, making it two weeks in a row as shown in our first chart. Open interest on Comex also continued to increase, which is healthy be

  Japan's Last Stand
There is a popular American military term called a "last stand", which is meant to describe a situation where a combat force attempts to hold a defensive position in the face of overwhelming odds. The defensive force usually sustains very heavy casualties or is completely destroyed, as happened at Custer's Last Stand. General Custer, misreading his enemy's size and ability, fought his final and fatal battle of Little Bighorn; leading to complete annihilation of both himself and his t

Unemployment and reduced output is the cost of having inflation, not the cost of fighting it
Gerard Jackson What is the real connection between inflation and unemployment? Then again, maybe that should be inflation and employment. That this has been raised several time on this site which got me thinking about a 1993 study called The Costs of Unemployment in Australia1 by Raja Junankar and Cezary Kapuscinski. The authors, both of whom are Keynesians, argued that a “fight inflation first” policy generally incurs more costs than benefits, a view that is held by most of the economics profes

How Would Milton Friedman Have Reacted to the Financial Crisis? 
The repercussions of the financial crisis that began in 2007 are still being felt. In the United States and in Europe, the crisis led to the strong resurgence of a theory, Keynesianism, that seemed to have been discredited since the 1970s. One of the main opponents of John Maynard Keynes’s statist and interventionist conception of the economy, Milton Friedman, who died in 2006, would have turned 100 this year. Friedman was a fierce defender of the free market and is considered

Hyperinflation in the U.S.? 
“WAR is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.”-General Smedley Butler, USMC“Let me issue and control a nation's money and I care not who writes the laws.”-Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744-1812), founder of the House of RothschildA good friend and fellow reader sent me the following note:Hello Jeff

Silver and Gold Producers a CALL TO ARMS! 
How much longer are you going to let Wall Street determine the price you are permitted to charge for your product?How much longer will you stand by and watch as computer traders raise and mostly lower the price of your product, by selling contracts in the futures market for metal they do not own, and do not produce?(Bud Conrad at has just written an excellent article, with a number of charts, on this subject titled:?Paper Gold and its effect on the Gold Price.?)

The idea that inflation can drive economic growth exposed as rubbish by economic history
Gerard Jackson The view that “inflation is not only desirable in its own right. It’s the absolute foundation of sustained growth in the economy and of living standards”1 is the generally accepted one among the economic commentariat. We have basically two positions here: The first one is the nonsensical belief that a ‘modest’ rate of inflation is necessary to promote spending and investment. Therefore, without this rate of inflation prices would continually fall which in turn would curb spending

Audit or End the Fed
"Politics is the loom that weaves and spins the fabric of our democratic social cohesion. The politics of democracy is the social blanket that we all willingly come together under, huddled awkwardly, for our national identity. The interwoven threads of multi-media, technology, financial, and shared social myths bind this political blanket into our national identity as a democratic republic. When the democratic political process has been stealthy co-opted over many years by financialization, whi

Market Report: PMs hit by strong dollar
The dollar continued its upward path against the major currencies this week, and gold and silver prices suffered accordingly. The bears have maintained the upper hand, as shown in the following charts of Comex prices and Open Interest. In both cases Open Interest has been rising, indicating a substantial and growing short position, though silver's fell sharply in heavy volume on Wednesday on technical grounds: it appears that someone rolled 6,000 contracts out of the December future into an op

Understanding Global Monetary Policy: And How to Profit From It
To say that the last month as been turbulent in markets would be a drastic understatement. We saw the biggest intraday range in US bond yields in 16 years, equities nosedive then whipsaw right back to new highs, VIX hit the highest levels since 2011 whilst gold, silver and oil hit multi year lows. With such volatility around the theme of uncertainty is rife across financial markets, therefore it is important to reassess ones views of the market and properly understand the underlying drivers of m

"Whatever It Takes" Stage Two; Headwinds Explain Why Draghi Will Fail This Time
"What's it all about Alphie" is a sing-along that most have heard. Take out the word "Alphie" and substitute "Draghi" and the answer is "Assuage Investors" in yet another can-kicking exercise. Draghi hopes that if he continues with his kick-the-can tactics long enough, that  something good will eventually happen. Hope is really all he has. In the meantime, Draghi Reinforces ECB Stimulus Momentum to Assuage Investors. Under pressure to show he can spur inflation, and to narrow divisions amon

Sisyphean Fed Struggle to Create Inflation; Faber on Gross' Deflation Theory, Japan's Bond Ponzi Sch
Sisyphean Fed Struggle Earlier today in The Trouble with Porosity and Prosperity Bill Gross mentioned the possibility of deflation in the US and spoke of the Fed's Sisyphean struggle to create inflation. Before the advent of central banks in the early 20th century, prices were just as likely to go up as down. The world of the 1930s and the more recent lost decades of Japan give testament. Prices change – and while they usually go up these days, sometimes they do not. We are at such a moment o

Monetary Masturbation No Match for Deflation 
European bond yields went negative last week, saddling big investors who want to sit on cash with a weighty surcharge for the financial luxury of idling. While this abnormal state of affairs is not proof in itself that deflation has finally begun to overwhelm the central banks, we’ll lay odds that it’s not going to extract Europe’s economy from quicksand, let alone ignite an increasingly prayed-for inflation.  As much could be said of Japan’s latest attempt to dynamite itself from the bog of def

Gold prices in the post-QE world
Lacking a distinctive catalyst, gold prices have languished in recent weeks after a failed turnaround attempt earlier this month.  Gold’s primary form of price propulsion is fear and uncertainty; as long as investors are worried what the future might hold, gold is treated as a financial safe haven and its price tends to appreciate due to increased demand.  When investors aren’t worried, however, gold is typically ignored and risk assets (viz. equities) become the preferred choice.There was plent

How to Recognize a 'Bear Raid' on Wall Street
October has a reputation as a graveyard for many Bull markets, a reputation that was enshrined by the "Black Monday," Crash in October 1987, when the Dow Jones Industrials plunged -22% in a single day. And then again in October 2008, the Dow plummeted -3,000-points from as high as 10,882 on Oct 1st to as low as 7,882 hit on Oct 10th. The Dow ended the brutal month of Oct 2008, with a loss of -2,675 points, or -14.1% for the month. The S&P-500 Index fared worse, with a -17% decline, -
