China announced on Sept. 6, 2012 that
any country that wishes to sell Crude Oil using its currency, the Renminbi, can do so. The next day Russia announced it

These actions struck a Mortal Blow,
whose consequences are not yet fully evident, to the US Dollar as the
World’s Reserve Currency, and thus to the future Economic Health of the
U.S., a blow which will eventually impel it toward Third World status.
Formerly a main source of strength of
the $US was the arrangement with Saudi Arabia whereby Crude would be sold only
in US Dollars. Since the World had to have Saudi Crude, it had to have $US.
Not so anymore.
China and Resource-rich Russia are

The recent decision by The Fed and ECB
to print unlimited amounts of their Fiat Paper, was ostensibly to help revive
Economies, but in reality is designed to relieve the Mega-Banks of more of
their Toxic paper.
Thus the Major Fiat Currency Issuers,
– the U.S., Japan, and Eurozone – are engaging in a race to
depreciate their Currencies. In light of this “Race to the
Bottom,” two asset classes will, and already are, appreciating
in Fiat Currency Terms, and will serve as Inflation Antidotes for Profit and
They are the Monetary Metals, Gold and
Silver, and the Tangible Assets which get used up – Crude Oil and
Essential Foods. The wise have already begun to accumulate Physical Gold and
Silver, and to invest in Agricultural Production.
China, now the World’s largest
Gold producer, is increasingly a Physical Gold importer. And they are
increasingly buying Food and Energy properties and producers around the
World. And Central Banks around the World are increasing Gold Holdings. The
Korean CB increased its Gold Holdings by 20% and Paraguayan CB by over 90%, both
in July alone! (See Notes 1 and 2 below regarding Deepcaster’s
Similarly, Silver demand is skyrocketing
due to increasing use in electronics, medical, and solar energy applications,
among others. As with Gold, China has turned from a net exporter to a net
As demand for Food and Energy continues
to increase, propelled by the 80 Million persons added to the World’s
population each year, expect Conflicts over Resources to continue to
increase. Witness Japan’s and China’s conflict over Islands
claimed by both.
The “Winners” will be those
who follow The Golden Rule: Those who have the Gold (and the Energy and
Agricultural Assets) Make the Rules. N.B. China is the USA’s largest
creditor and wields considerable Financial, Economic, and Strategic Clout
over Japan. Consider this Delightful Note from The Telegraph, U.K.:
senior advisor to the Chinese government has called for an attack on the
Japanese bond market to precipitate a funding crisis and bring the country to
its knees, unless Tokyo reverses its decision to nationalise
the disputed Senkaku/Diaoyu
islands in the East China Sea.”

The 21st century Power Reality of
Resource Conflicts has begun.
Another Power Reality is MainStream Media News Manufacturing and Disinformation
Dissemination. So far as financial and economic news is concerned, the flow
of Disinformation has if anything intensified. Presumably to stave off a rush
to Inflation Assets, the MainStream Media has
disseminated The Fiction that the U.S., and certain others, are deleveraging. That is a Myth. Consider:
“In the second quarter of this year:
- Consumer credit in the US grew by 6.2%, the highest pace in nearly
- US non-financial credit market debt grew by 5%, the highest pace in
nearly four years;
- Total household debt increased 1.2%, the highest pace in over four
- US treasury debt has increased 110% in four years;
- After contracting by 1.2% in the first quarter, state and local
borrowing is now up 0.8%
“The numbers don't lie. Genuine deleveraging would imply a
reduction in debt, especially non-productive debt. Genuine deleveraging would
see market prices determined by fundamental forces of supply and demand, not
by government intervention, manipulation and inflationism.
“Instead, we get a profound form of 'mission creep' by central banks,
whose policies are now destroying the very same economies they are nominally
tasked with protecting.
“In the words of veteran analyst Jim Grant, the Fed has evolved well
beyond its origins as a lender of last resort and not much else, and now is
fully engaged in the business "of steering, guiding, directing,
manipulating the economy, financial markets, the yield curve..."
“It is a wholly specious argument to suggest that the creation of
trillions of dollars / pounds / euros / yen out of thin air will not
ultimately be inflationary; it is like saying that storing an infinite amount
of tinder next to an open flame does not constitute a fire hazard.
“Admittedly, the explicit inflationary impact of historic monetary
stimulus will not be fully visible until those trillions are circulating in
the economy in private exchanges between buyers and sellers-- rather than
squatting ineffectively in insolvent banks' reserves. But financial markets
are nothing if not capable of anticipating future trends.”

In fact, Price Inflation is
Intensifying already (e.g. 9.3% in the U.S. already [see Note 3 re. Shadowstats]) as the International Economy continues to
slow. Stagflation is the name of this Reality (first visible in the
1970’s), and we now approach Hyperstagflation.
Investor Antidotes to the foregoing are:

Note 1: There are Magnificent Opportunities in the
Ongoing Crises of Debt Saturation, Rising Unemployment, negative Real GDP
growth, over 9.0% Real U.S. Inflation (per Shadowstats.com) and prospective Sovereign and other Defaults.
One Sector full of Opportunities is the High-Yield Sector. Deepcaster’s High Yield Portfolio is aimed at
generating Total Return (Gain + Yield) well in excess of Real Consumer Price
Inflation (9% per year in the U.S. per Shadowstats.com).

ONE is coming soon.
The Can can no
longer be kicked down the road: Consider
“On a three-month rolling basis, portfolion and investment outflows from Spain totaled
52.3% of the country’s GDP, more than double the outflows from
Indonesia, which reached 23% of GDP at the time of the Asian crisis.”
