Stay Home, Order Take-Out, And Fondle Your Gold - John Rubino
For an example of how far we’ve fallen from the old days of free-range First World entitlement, consider the fact that investment analysts are now judging companies by how well they cater to the needs of the terrified: Papa John’s upgraded on belief civil unrest is encouraging more pizza delivery (MarketWatch) – Papa John’s International Inc. was upgraded to overweight from sector weight at KeyBanc Capital Markets with analysts expressing the surprising view that diners, concerned about

The "Price-Specie Flow Mechanism" 2: Let's Kill It For Good
Recently, we've been taking a look at the "price-specie flow mechanism", a rather stupid notion that has been around forever. It is one of the main intellectual impediments today keeping people from realizing how simple and easy a gold standard system, or any fixed-value system, really is. March 19, 2016: The "Price-Specie Flow Mechanism" We already looked at David Hume directly, and found that he didn't really say what people think he said. Mostly -- although Hume was a little fuzzy -- he arg

Don't Reform the Fed, Fed-Exit!
Opponents of a central bank should take advantage of the post-Brexit vote revival of secessionist sentiments to promote a secession from central banking, or "Fed-exit." Ending the Federal Reserve's monopoly on money is the key to restoring and maintaining our liberty and prosperity. By manipulating the money supply to fix interest rates, the Federal Reserve engages in price fixing. After all, interest rates are nothing more than the price of money. Like all prices, they communicate inf

  An Honest Monetary System
All legitimate economists today accept the fact that central bank expansion of the money supply at a faster rate than the economy’s production of goods and services results in price inflation, i.e., stealing of the people’s wealth. If not checked, it brings about the destruction of a nation’s currency. In light of this, we need to ask ourselves what type of money can a society possibly have when its government officials and federal bankers can simply print that money at will? History clearly tea

Is Kyle Bass Going To Be Proven Correct?
By Chris at Market dislocations occur when financial markets, operating under stressful conditions, experience large widespread asset mispricing. Welcome to this week's edition of “World Out Of Whack” where every Wednesday we take time out of our day to laugh, poke fun at and present to you absurdity in global financial markets in all it's glorious insanity. While we enjoy a good laugh, the truth is that the first step to protecting ourselves from losses is to protect

The Sisterhood WON'T Settle for Equality - Peter Diekmeyer
This week, Theresa May announced that she was running to lead Britain’s Conservative party. Bookmakers say that she has the best chance of becoming its next Prime Minister. If May wins, she, Hillary Clinton, who has significant advantages in upcoming U.S. elections, and Angela Merkel of Germany will head three leading global economies. But that is just at the top. Even if May and Clinton fail to get elected, investors need to recognize the approach of a crucial tipping point. A tidal wave of gro

"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

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
