Bitcoin Mania Parabolic
Bitcoin’s meteoric skyrocketing this year has been astonishing, captivating traders across the globe.  This once-obscure cryptocurrency has exploded into the world’s hottest market.  With fortunes being won on paper, everyone is talking about bitcoin.  But with its price shooting parabolic, unfortunately this wild ride has all the hallmarks of a classic popular speculative mania.  And those all end badly, totally collapsing. In the annals of financial-market histor

Financial crisis dynamics, the ‘shadow’ gold demand, and Mene
The study of financial crises is as old as the economics discipline itself. One of the most prominent theorists of financial crises ever to hold a senior Federal Reserve policy position was John Exter, vice-president of the New York Federal Reserve during the 1950s. Several years ago I co-wrote a series of essays on Exter’s theories together with his sonin- law, Barry Downs. In this paper, building on Exter’s work, including his eponymous ‘pyramid’, I introduce a new ‘hourglass’ framework for un

An attempt to quantify the immeasurable
To paraphrase Einstein, not everything worth measuring is measurable and not everything measurable is worth measuring. The purchasing power of money falls into the former category. It is worth measuring, in that it would be useful to have a single number that consistently reflected the economy-wide purchasing power of money. However, such a number doesn’t exist. Such a number doesn’t exist because a sensible result cannot be arrived at by summing or averaging the prices of disparate items. For e

Profit, Protection, Despite Cartel Interventions—November 2017 Update
Governments love [the war on cash]. Then they can control you...we are not going to have as many freedoms as we have now ...get prepared because we're going to have the worst economic problems we've had in your lifetime or my lifetime and when that happens a lot of people are going to disappear.“…the next time aro

DOW TO LOSE 97 AGAINST GOLD
In the last 48 years, since 1969, an investor who put $1,000 into the Dow would today have $33,000. That is a gain of 3,200% or 7.6% annually. On the other hand, someone who put $1,000 into gold in 1969 would today have $37,000 or 7.8% annual return. But if you add dividends to the Dow, the return is far superior at 10.7% with the dividends reinvested. 1969 seems like an arbitrary start year but it happens to be the year that I started my first job. No one could of course have predicted any of t

The Best Predictor of Future Inflation is Flashing "WARNING!"
The Fed is dramatically understating real inflation. As you know, I’ve been very critical of the Fed’s inflation measures for years. The official inflation measure (Consumer Price Index or CPI) does a horrible job of measuring the actual cost of living for Americans. I have long stated that this is intentional as the purpose of CPI is to hide the true rate of inflation so the Fed can paper over the decline in living standards that has plagued the US for the last few decades. The Fed isn’t doing

WAKE UP AMERICA – THE DOLLAR IS GOING TO ZERO
For news to be read and understood by a great number of people, it must be simple, sensational and forgettable. Most individuals are not interested in “heavy” news or complicated issues. Just compare television and newspapers today to say 50 years ago. At that time, newspapers had very few pictures but instead covered serious matters with in depth analysis. Same with television. In the 1960s there was serious news and many programmes which raised important issues in society or politics, which ma

A Tsunami of Inflation Has Just Appeared on the Horizon
Inflation is coming. It’s taken seven years of ZIRP and over $4 trillion in QE, but the Federal Reserve has finally begun to unleash inflation. It won’t show up in the official inflation measures like the Consumer Price Index CPI for a while. And this is intentional. The Fed knows that CPI doesn’t measure real inflation. How do we know this? The Fed itself published a paper back in 2002 admitting its official measures of inflation (CPI and PCE) do a horrible job of predicting future inflation. T

  Gold Price Not 100 About Real Rates. But Close
Nor 100% about the Dollar. Just in time for Goldman Sachs to catch on... NICE to see Goldman Sachs spotting what matters 3 months late. "It is tempting to blame the rally in gold prices on recent events in North Korea," says a note from the US investment bank's commodities team under Jeffrey Currie.

CHRONIC CRISES NEXT FOR YELLEN AND THE FED
“The report of my death has been grossly exaggerated” are words that Janet Yellen is likely to utter within the next few years. It was of course Mark Twain who said it over 100 years ago, before the Fed even existed. Yellen has recently stated that there won’t be another financial crisis in her lifetime and she will most likely have to eat those words in coming years. We know that the Fed’s record of economic forecasting has been abysmal. They have never forecast or anticipated a single economic
