Danger Warning: Banks Knowingly Underestimate their Risks
We shouldn’t worry about our economies anymore, the banks explain, the crisis is behind us and the solvability ratios have clearly gotten better. Banks like to tell us that the risks are under control and that their cash cushion is comfortable enough. The problem is that this risk reduction assessment does not come only from a more virtuous attitude, but also in part from dissimulation. As a matter of fact, “according to certain analysts, banks have revised their risk models in order to reduce

Fed's NIRP and Its Implications for Gold Investors
Based on the July gold Market Overview report. Believe it or not, we are finally witnessing a true monetary revolution. Unfortunately it is not the one that gold bugs have long waited for. Quite the opposite. We have the so called “monetary cranks” governing one of the most important central banks in the world. People who set the interest rates not at very low, not even at zero, not even at negative real interest rates, but at negative nominal interest rates. Hold your horses and constrain your

Debt Explosion!
Long-time readers know I love to include literary references to demonstrate key points; and none more so than the “aha moment” in my favorite movie of all time, V for Vendetta.  That is when Inspector Finch, who can’t seem to pinpoint exactly what’s wrong with England realizes how the spreading social cancer started, where it currently stood and where it was headed. Not that what ails America – and the entire world – is news to Miles Franklin Blog readers, as we have been writing of the inevitab

End of the Ugliest Era
It’s extremely rare to be born into a period of major historical significance; and rarer still, to escape it without one’s life turned upside down.  This is exactly the scenario confronting us all; and already, the tragic ramifications of a four-decade mad experiment in global money printing are spreading like the Ebola virus.  The inevitable catastrophic end of the “dollar standard era” will entail massive global shifts in purchasing power, military might and civil liberties; and sadly, those n

The biggest driver of this confidence appears to be the spike from 79.7 to 99.5 in the Pacific region's confidence... but plunged in the Mountain and Central regions.

Fed's 'Noisy' Inflation Fantasy
The Fed wants investors to be as unconcerned as the central bank is about inflation. Even though year over year consumer price inflation is above its target, the Fed chose in its latest press conference to claim the 2.1 percent YOY increase in prices paid merely represented "noisy" readings in the inflation gauge. However, the truth is that rising prices are a direct result of years' worth of zero percent interest rates and $3.5 trillion in money printing provided courtesy of both Ba

Gold Daily and Silver Weekly Charts - Hi Ho Silver!
There was intraday commentary about the metals rally here.  There is also a Summer assignment for those of you who wish to have a framework for the unfolding tragedy that is the Anglo-American financial system.  I suggest you scroll down for it. I had taken my trading account down to effectively zero cash on this last move lower in the metals, especially in the last two weeks.  That was how sure I was that these market were grossly oversold.

When Trust and Confidence Is Lost, The Die Is Cast 
"After nearly 6 years of blocking the normal development of systemic transition, a blocking caused by a flood of dollars leading to a renewed artificial global addiction to the US dollar, history is now taking its course. It isn’t as if during these six years nothing has happened. On the one hand, the US has failed to relaunch its economy and the actual situation for Americans has only got worse, and on the other, the emerging nations have used – and contributed to creating – this 'pause' to

The Point Of No Return
In last month’s “Place Your Bets – Economic Mother Nature versus Wall Street,” we presented the below chart, depicting how dramatically the U.S. economic situation has deteriorated since the 2000 and 2007 financial calamities.  Amazingly, it has taken just 14 years for America to look more like a third world nation than a “superpower;” and sadly, the trend is decidedly not its friend. Unquestionably, the global economy “broke” during 2008’s Global Meltdown I, as 37 years of unfettered, global m

Market Report: Gold in near-death experience on Comex 
Well, it’s a bit of an exaggeration, but for the first three days of this week daily turnover in the gold future fell to about 80,000 contracts, compared with a more normal level of 120,000. At the same time volatility fell to as close to zero as you can get. The week started with the gold price at $1241 and until yesterday at 1.00pm UK time stuck to a tight range of $7 centred on $1244. Open interest picked up a little, as shown in our first chart. This zombified market sat up in its coffin ye

Book Review: Steve Forbes Leads the New Renaissance in Monetary Understanding 
People who have followed Steve Forbes’ “Fact & Comment” have long noted his advocacy for the Classical, gold-based monetary approach the United States used before 1971. But, what most people probably did not know is the depth and breadth of Forbes’ understanding of this fundamental topic. Steve Forbes has one of the best monetary minds in the U.S. today – towering above today’s academics and money bureaucrats, including central bankers, whose collective incompete

Why Bond Yields are at Record Lows 
It seems that nearly everyone is confounded by the record low bond yields that are prevalent across the globe today. If investors can correctly pinpoint the real reason behind these low sovereign debt yields, they will also be able to find a great parking place for their investment capital to weather the upcoming storm. Wall Street cheerleaders are explaining that yields in the world's largest economy are falling for strictly "technical reasons." Specifically, they claim that there
