Shiller Kool-Aid Part II: Doug Short Chimes In
Doug Short at Advisor Perpspectives picked up my post Shiller Drinks the Kool-Aid. Footnote from Doug Short Doug emailed me a bit ago, adding a few charts of his own to my post. When I read Mish's commentary this morning, I was interested in what the real (inflation-adjusted) weekly earnings of this employment cohort would look like over the past seven-plus decades. Here's what I came up with, courtesy of data from the FRED repository. This snapshot clearly supports Mish's perspective. I

Why We Own Precious Metals!
For the past decade, we have described why TPTB are so desperate to suppress gold and silver prices – while at the same time, no doubt, acquiring them for themselves.  Plain and simple, PMs are the only known substances to have retained their monetary properties throughout history; as opposed to the fiat currencies they attempt to control the world with, which have a 100% failure rate.  It simply cannot be understated how catastrophic the ramifications of global fiat regime failure will be – whi

Pettis Proposes Savings Glut and Income Inequality are Source of Global Imbalances; Mish vs. Pettis:
Michael Pettis at China Financial Markets taught me much of what I know about global trade. I am very appreciative. I tend to agree with most of his views. I recommended his book "Great Rebalancing", and still do. In a recent email, however, Pettis revives the "Global Savings Glut" thesis and I strongly disagree. This is a somewhat lengthy discussion, but an extremely important one. "Income Inequality" is a front-page topic so let's take a close look. From Pettis ... Reviving the “Underco

Mines Management: $1.50 to $20-$80/share.
I own Mines Management Stock; and Mines Management has not paid me, neither in cash, nor stock, to write this article. That means I make money only if the stock goes up in value. Mines Management stock is trading around $1.50/share as of March 13, 2014. Here are three ways to value the stock: 1. NPV: price target: $27.5/share 2. Resource leverage: 113:1 or 250:1 3. Expected PE ratio: price target $41/share Here is how I arrived at those values: 1. NPV method: Net Present Value about $800

Essential Knowledge for Maximizing Real Gains
“Noted investor Jim Rogers says outgoing Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke has set the stage for the collapse of the U.S. central bank within the next decade, and had turned the nation’s fiscal balance sheet into ‘garbage.’“In a recent interview with the British financial website Mineweb, Rogers said Bernanke and his fellow central bankers in other countries have brought the global economy to the brink of disaster….“Rogers predicted that history will remember Bernanke as ‘the guy who set the

“Housing numbers were abysmal for January 2014. This is yet another evidence that there is a huge disconnect between Wall Street and Fedspeak, versus the real economy.

Surmounting Hostile Incoming 
??If you view the progressive financial breakdown in America as some kind of ?comedy of errors? or a trial of unlucky coincidences, then there is not much I can do to educate you on the reasons behind the carnage. If, however, you understand that there is a deliberate motivation behind American collapse, then what I have to say here will not fall on biased ears.?The financial crash of 2008, the same crash which has been ongoing for years, is NOT an accident. It is a concerted and engineered cris

Bubblicious Questions: What Causes Economic Bubbles? When Do Bubbles Burst? Can the Fed Prevent Bubb
Today I am going to ask three simple questions that have easy to understand answers. What Causes Economic Bubbles? When Do Bubbles Burst? Can the Fed Prevent Bubbles? The Boy Who Cried Bubble Before answering the questions (and hopefully many of you know the answers already), let's tune in to what the Dallas Fed has to say regarding bubbles in its report Globalization and Monetary Policy Institute Working Paper No. 167, entitled "The Boy Who Cried Bubble" by authors Yasushi Asako and Koz

A Contrarian’s Delight
“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.” Thomas Jefferson   For many commentators there are two distinct camps in the Precious Metals markets: Investors in bullion vs speculators in the paper market. These two markets are pulling in opposite directions; most media hypes, the political class and their bailed out banks and brokers are on one side and the people of America and the rest of the world are on the other.  The few of us who unders

Silver Prices - When Monetary Demand Trumps Industrial Demand
It is crystal clear to anyone willing to go a few steps beyond the headlines that massive intervention and ignorance of risk act as massive governors to progress, real economic growth and natural capital formation. Nevertheless, what is less clear is how these failures will manifest in precious metals - especially the silver market.   The catalyst for much higher prices will be of a monetary, rather than an industrial, demand-led series of events. A Parallel to the Current State of Finance Th

Hyperinflation 2014?
Long-time readers are well aware of the esteem we hold for John Williams.  No, not the composer of Star Wars, Superman, Jaws, and Raiders of the Lost Ark; although clearly, that John Williams is the closest thing the 20th century had to Beethoven.  And certainly not the John Williams that, ironically, is the current President of the San Francisco Federal Reserve Bank.  You know, the one that last week claimed stocks are not overvalued. No, we are of course referring to John Williams of Shadowsta

NGDP to Infinity
At the breakneck pace global inflation is being expanded, it’s difficult to keep up with the Goebbels-inspired “lingo” utilized to mask it.  No better example of “financial understatement” is the term quantitative easing – in reference to money printing; along with Long-Term Refinancing Operations and Term Asset Relief Programs (i.e. TARP) to describe bank bailouts – among countless others.  In fact, I last year wrote of the rapidly approaching NIRP, or Negative Interest Rate Policy stances – wh

The Federal Reserve's Centennial Birthday - The 100 Years' War Again 
As anyone who has read my recent book, $10,000 Gold: Why Gold's Inevitable Rise Is the Investor's Safe Haven knows , I am a firm believer in sound money, free markets and the negative impact of central banks. I also stand firmly against global deficit spending and its major proponent, the U.S. Federal Reserve. I am a strong supporter of Austrian economics. On December 13, 2013, the Federal Reserve will celebrate its 100th birthday. Undoubtedly, there will be many articles forth

The Numbers Game
Thank the stars for mathematics, the language of science. Every known aspect of the universe from the movement of the planets and the formation of stars and galaxies, to the propagation of light and radio waves, right down to the intricate darting of subatomic particles is described perfectly by mathematics. In efficient market theory, the price of any marketable good can be described precisely by the law of supply and demand. That is, as Adam Smith instr

Physical Gold Supply Countdown 
It’s funny how little news is published when stock markets are rising – as if nothing could possibly be wrong.  Sure, the horrible headlines are still there; in my view, more plentiful, and widespread, than any time in our lifetimes.  However, as human nature tends to ignore bad news if at all possible, MSM “ratings” only weaken when they report it.  “All’s well” stories don’t garner ratings like death, misery, and calamity – but they sure beats those of “Cassandras” like the Miles Franklin Blog
