Great Recession Redux
We are fast approaching the time when it will become obvious to all that mortally-wounded economies cannot be resuscitated by a massive increase in credit from central banks. Nations that suffer from tremendous capital imbalances, debt capacities and asset bubbles cannot be healed by printing money. Quantitative easing and zero percent interest rates have the ability to provide GDP growth that is merely illusory and ephemeral. This is because it can temporarily levitate equity, real

Extend and Pretend
To say we live in a bipolar world these days, a world characterized by white or black parallels up and down the spectrum of life, should be obvious to all by now as the extremes continue to become increasingly profound. And this should be no surprise to anybody with a full 70% of American?s on mind-altering drugs ? stoned, distracted and delusional ? allowing the populace to continue accepting an increasingly perverse ?new normal? ? the dope makes extend and pretend possible with an increasingly

Gold prepares for Yellen Testimony
INTRA-DAY NEWSLETTER ~ Feb 23 2015 With Greece moving to the periphery if only for a few days/hours, this week the US calendar returns to the forefront with Fed Chair Yellen’s semi-annual monetary policy testimony before the Senate Banking Committee tomorrow night and the House Financial Services Committee on Wednesday, which the market will be paying very close attention to for the reconciliation of how the Fed plans to continue on its rate-hiking path despite rapidly deteriorating US macro dat

  Debt Heaven Fallacy, not on Earth 
Today marks the Chinese New Year, the day promised for unleashing forces from the East which complete the Global Paradigm Shift. Let it rain; let it pour. For a full generation, the Western central bankers have relied upon debt to solve debt saturation problems as well as economic slowdowns founded within the credit cycle. In the last four years, they have added reliance upon free cost printed money to solve debt saturation and insolvency problems. The USTreasury Bond market has vanished for all

Hyperinflation To Start in 2015: Economist Says Get Supplies : “Gold, Silver, Canned Goods, Toilet Paper, Bottled Water…”
(Pictured: Greeks Fight Food Food Following Collapse Of Their Economy. February 6, 2013) It’s impossible to predict when and how our economy will finally reach a breaking point, but according to contrarian Shadow Stats economist John Williams  it’s coming one way or the other. The only thing we can do now is to prepare for it and that means stockpiling critical supplies, just like you might for an earthquake or snowstorm, but in larger quantities. Because, if and when hyperinflation starts peopl

Beware the Stock Bear!
The US stock markets? latest record highs have left traders exceedingly euphoric and complacent.  They are utterly convinced this stock bull will power higher for years to come.  But their enthusiasm is very misplaced.  In real inflation-adjusted terms, the US stock markets only just regained breakeven levels 15 years after the last secular bull peaked.  Now the secular stock bear ever since is overdue for a new cyclical bear. The flagship benchmark ind

Market Report: Mid-week sell-off
In last Friday's Market Update I commented that it is easy for bullion banks with deep pockets to move markets and change sentiment. This week's trading in precious metals was a text-book example, with all precious metals falling sharply during New York trading on Tuesday, setting up gold for a test of the $1200 level the following day. The news background, with Greece playing an alarming game of chicken against the rest of the Eurozone, and Ukraine still moving NATO and Russia towards conflict,

Tim Wood -
Ever since the 2000 stock market top, the natural deflationary cyclical forces have been bearing down on not only the stock market, but the underlying economy. It has been these natural deflationary cyclical forces in which the Money Masters have been fighting with their massive liquidity and intervention campaign. As a result of the unprecedented efforts to re-liquify the economy, the stock market has been the tool of choice to paint the illusion that everything is okay. As a result

Gold Bullion Slips for 3rd Week, Chinese Premiums 'Disappointing' Before New Year, Greek Deal 'Risks Drop to Test $1200'
GOLD BULLION prices rallied to $1230 per ounce Friday lunchtime in London but headed for their 3rd weekly drop in a row as Chinese trading fell back ahead of next week's Lunar New Year holidays and new data showed Germany's economy growing better than expected. Silver in contrast jumped 2.4% to trade near its highest Friday close in two weeks. "Chinese New Year demand should support the precious metals today," said one Asian dealing desk overnight. But "with Chinese New Year just a week

You Can’t Create More Savings by Printing More Money
Savings has nothing to do with money. For instance, if a baker produces ten loaves of bread and consumes one loaf, his savings is nine loaves of bread. In other words, the “savings” in this case is the baker’s real income (his production of bread) minus the amount of bread that the baker consumed. The baker’s savings now permits him to secure other goods and services.For instance, the baker can now exchange his saved bread for a pair of shoes with a shoemaker. Observe that the baker’s savings is

Inflation And Alan Greenspan 
Alan Greenspan 1967 "As the supply of money increases relative to the supply of tangible assets in the economy, prices must eventually rise. In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. There is no safe store of value". Alan Greenspan 1981 "A return to a gold standard (would be) a basic change in our economic processes. A gold-based monetary system will necessarily prevent fiscal imprudence. Once achieved, the discipline of the gold standard would surely reinforce anti-inflation policies, and make it far more difficult to resume financial profligacy".

Yellen: Looking For Inflation In All The Wrong Places
In 1958, economist W.H. Phillips wrote a paper that argued an inverse relationship existed between wage inflation and unemployment. The crux of his theory was when unemployment is high wage growth is absent; but when the unemployment rate is low wages rise rapidly. Philips established his theory under the framework of a curve and it was aptly referred to as "The Phillips Curve". However, many economists wrongly adopted the Phillips Curve by relating it to general price inflation, rat

Market Report: Consolidation continues
This week precious metals continued to consolidate January's gains in volatile financial markets, with both gold and silver range-bound. Platinum and palladium are up on the week, noticeably stronger than gold and silver. Physical and paper markets appear to have been behaving differently, with prices tending to be firm in London (where physical deliveries take place) and weaker in New York (which is overwhelmingly derivative trading), though at the close of trading in New York prices appeared m

  The Golden age of QE and the FIAT endgame 
As you are doubtless aware we are living in a new paradigm – the age of global QE has arrived. Amongst the major power blocs it started with the US, spread to Japan, which adopted it with a particular gusto, after suffering from deflation for decades, and just has been taken up by Europe in a big way, after waiting for half its young people in many constituent countries to become unemployed due to the ravages of deflation.

The “Money Supply” with a Gold Standard 
Usually you hear a couple things about the "money supply" with a gold standard. The first thing you hear is that it is determined by gold mining. The second thing you hear is that it is limited to the amount of gold held "in reserve," whatever that means. Sometimes you hear that it is determined by the "current account balance." All of this is bunk.

Monetary Metals Brief 2015
It’s the start of a new year. The question on everyone’s mind is whither the prices of gold and silver? This Brief presents our answer (and the full Monetary Metals Outlook 2015 report gives our reasoning). One approach to the question of price is to draw a line, extrapolating the past trend into the future. Here is the graph for gold. This line would give us a gold price around $1000 at the end of 2015. If we did it for silver (not shown), we would get around $10. We don’t think that most trad

2015 Outlook: What You Really Need to Know
In the January issue of BIG GOLD, I interviewed 17 analysts, economists, and authors on what they expect for gold in 2015. Some of those included what we affectionately call our Casey Brain Trust—Doug Casey, Olivier Garret, Bud Conrad, David Galland, Marin Katusa, Louis James, and Terry Coxon. The issue was so popular that we decided to reprint this portion. I think you’ll find some very insightful and useful reading here (click on a link to read his bio)… Doug Casey, Chairman Jeff: The Fe

The “Money Supply” with a Gold Standard 2 : 1880 - 1970 
The United States, from 1789 to 1860, had a libertarian "free banking" system. Anyone could issue currency, but it had to be pegged to gold. This "gold peg" was a value peg

  When Even the Fed Is Confused, We Still Have Some Work To Do
I sometimes read things like college textbooks because, when the author is presenting basic ideas to a general audience, their most foundational misconceptions are on clear display. Recently, the Federal Reserve put out a brief description of a gold standard system – the policy used, in principle, by the United States from 1789 to 1971, and also by the Federal Reserve itself from its founding in 1913 to 1971. It’s a nice way to understand today’s conventional wisdo

Post Mortem on the Swiss Franc’s Euro-Peg
On January 15, 2015 the Swiss National Bank (SNB) announced an end to its three-year-old cap of 1.20 franc per euro. (The SNB introduced the cap in September 2011.) The SNB has also reduced its policy interest rate to minus 0.75 percent from minus 0.25 percent. The Swiss franc appreciated as much as 41 percent to 0.8517 per euro following the announcement, the strongest level on record — it settled during the day at around 0.98 per euro. With Money Creation, It’s All RelativeWe suggest t
