The Free Market Always Prevails
The global securities market got a surprise recently when U.S. core consumer price inflation crept up to 2.3% year over year in the month of August. This closely followed core measure, which strips out the more volatile food and energy costs, increased 0.3%; this was the biggest rise in core CPI since February. According to the government, while the costs associated with food and energy decreased, price increases came primarily from medical care commodities and medical care services. A

Storage cost argument against gold now applies to cash, McEwen notes
By Danielle Bochove and Millie Munshi Bloomberg News Monday, September 20, 2016 Robert McEwen, one of the gold's industry's most unabashed bulls, is predicting prices could surge as much as 44 percent by the end of the year as confidence in the economy buckles. The metal could trade in a range of $1,700 an ounce to $1,900 by the end of 2016 as uncertainty builds around the stability of global currencies and sovereign debt, said McEwen, who is so enamored by bullion that he has founded two produc

Grand Ascension or Great Collapse? - Gary Christenson
It depends upon your perspective and the markets you follow … Perspective: The global economy is drowning in debt – $230 Trillion and counting – that will not be repaid at current value. Expect hyperinflation or outright default. Negative Interest Rates on $13 Trillion in sovereign debt are a sign of failure by central banks, governments, and Keynesian economists. Pension plans and savers are hurt by low and negative interest rates. They have been sacrificed for the continued levitat

Bond Bubble has Finally Reached its Apogee
Boston Fed President Eric Rosengren recently rattled markets when he warned that low-interest rates were increasing the temperature of the U.S. economy, which now runs the risk of overheating. That sunny opinion was echoed by several other Federal Reserve officials who are trying to portray an economy that is on a solid footing. And thus, prepare investors and consumers for an imminent rise in rates. But perhaps someone should check the temperatures of those at the Federal Reserve, t

Dangerous Times for stocks - U.S. is headed toward stagflation - We’re not in a stable equilibrium. It’s a good time for Gold and Silver!
Most global financial markets struggling to rise, central bank policies are placing interest rates at all time lows. These are not producing the results wanted [but are holding deflation at bay]. Important governments are emasculated by political stalemate, while the structure of the E.U. is facing what Junker calls an ‘existential problem’ [translated is under threat from an array of problems].Hence, the comments by Alan Greenspan, Paul Singer and several others demand our attention. In this ar

The Crisis Is Escalating!
Deutsche Bank and Commerzbank are presently discussing merger talks. The fact that these meetings are occurring, is a signal that Germany's banking troubles are indeed accelerating. They are desperately seeking ways in order to cut costs and improve profitability. These plans include restructuring and job cuts using most highly unconventional measures. Last June 2016, Reuters cited anonymous sources as saying that Commerzbank was exploring the option of hoarding billions of euros, in v

  Why the Greater Recession will be Dollar Bearish
The Great Recession of 2008 provided markets with an interesting irony: As the US economy was collapsing under the weight of crumbling home prices, investors curiously flocked to the US dollar under the guise of "The Safety Trade." But the truth is that investors weren't running into the dollar for safety, what they were actually doing was unwinding a carry trade. In a carry trade an investor borrows a depreciating currency that offers a relatively low interest rate and uses those fund

Case for -2% Rates, Banning Cash? James Grant Blasts Lunatic Proposals
Looking for group think, extrapolation of extreme silliness, linear thinking, and belief in absurd models? Then look no further than Fed presidents, their advisors, and academia loaded charlatan professors. Today’s spotlight is on Marvin Goodfriend, a former economist and policy advisor at the Federal Reserve’s Bank of Richmond, and Ken Rogoff, a chaired Harvard economics professor, a one-time chief economist at the International Monetary Fund. Case for Minus 2% Rates Goodfriend says the Fed Mi

Red Hot Junk and Massive Bond-Market Dislocations; Equity Smash Coming Up?
The economic data does not support a rate hike. Is the Fed is really worried about something else? How about an overheating junk bond market? An equity bubble? Room to cut later? Or does the Fed really think the economy is strong? Regardless, a massive selloff in bonds in Japan and a two-day five-sigma event in German bunds may be the start of a significant rout. Let’s investigate this through the eyes of various bond market dislocations. I don't know what the Fed is thinking. Their convolute

Negative Rates Will Kill Growth
For years I have argued that ultra-low interest rates act more as an economic sedative than a stimulant. This idea has elicited laughter from the economic establishment. But it is becoming clearer that rates set by central banks that are far below the levels that free markets would have otherwise determined have dragged the world into the economic mud. The simple proof is currently arising in Europe where negative interest rates are now transforming companies from agents of growth, production, a

The Next Experiment, Part 1: Japan Prepares To Buy Pretty Much Everything
For most of the world, the past decade’s monetary and fiscal experiments are viewed as failures. See, for instance, French support for the EU project crumbling on both left and right and Why were smart people suckered by Abenomics? So what do the best and brightest now running global economic policy do when their experiments don’t work? Apparently they double down, repeating the experiment with an even bigger dose.

Your Retirement Income is at Risk! - Gary Christenson
Social Security Pensions? Surely they are safe … the government told me they were safe. But there is more to the story, so read on. Private Pensions? State retirement accounts? An IRA or 401(k)? Equivalents in Europe, the UK, Australia, and Japan are probably similar. All are at risk and will be discussed further in part two. Few individuals think about such things, our unpleasant realities, the facts, and mathematical inevitability. It is easier to dream about the “free stuff” we will coll
