Ditching the Dollar – Natural Act for a Dying Empire

By Jeff Thomas One of the symptoms of a declining empire is that it becomes less and less productive and therefore less relevant to other countries. Any empire, whilst in its prime, will have a strong currency. As its productive relevance declines, so will its currency. Invariably, its leaders attempt to keep the currency strong, in spite of the decline in national relevance. Rather than[...]

When Next Crisis Unfolds, Fed Will Ask China to Revalue Gold! – Stewart Thomson

"America is in no condition to endure an economic downturn, yet a downturn is coming, almost as surely as night follows day. When the next crisis unfolds, I expect the Fed to quietly ask the Chinese central bank to revalue gold, by announcing a major gold buy program. This would allow China’s currency to become a competitor with the dollar. Equally importantly, it would allow the Fed to hide[...]

The Fed is Heading for Another Catastrophe – Roach

With so much dry kindling, it will not take much to spark the next conflagration. By Stephen Roach NEW HAVEN, Conn. (Project Syndicate) – America’s Federal Reserve is headed down a familiar — and highly dangerous — path. Steeped in denial of its past mistakes, the Fed is pursuing the same incremental approach that helped set the stage for the financial crisis of 2008-2009. The[...]

The Market Gage December 19, 2014 – Equity Market Like FOMC Statement

“The Market Gage” features insights into the precious metals market from Roy Friedman. Roy has over 30 years of in-depth experience in all facets of precious metals. The rather “friendly” FOMC statement and subsequent press conference that Chair Yellen held Wednesday afternoon certainly gave no immediate signs that interest rates are moving higher in Q1 2015 and at this point, based on[...]

This Is What Gold Does In a Currency Crisis – Real World Example Playing Out Now

by John Rubino on December 16, 2014 To say that gold is in a bear market is to misunderstand both gold and markets. Gold isn’t an investment that goes up and down. It is money in the most basic store-of-value sense. Most of the time it just sits there, and when its price changes in local currency terms that says more about the local currency than about gold. But when currencies collapse, gold[...]

Why You Should Be Prepared for Both Inflation and Deflation – James Rickards

Daily Reckoning Editor's Note: The debate over whether or not the US economy will experience inflation or deflation in the near term is an extremely heated one… According to our own Chris Mayer, two respected economists almost came to blows over it.

NIRP Arrives In The US: TBTF Banks Tell Customers To Move Their Cash Or Be Charged Fees

Back in June, the world was speechless when Goldman's head of the ECB, Mario Draghi, stunned the world when he took Bernanke's ZIRP and raised him one better by announcing the ECB would send deposit rates into negative territory, in the process launching the Neutron bomb known as N(egative)IRP and pushing European monetary policy into the "twilight zone", forcing savers to pay (!) for the[...]

Santelli Goes Ballistic: “I Feel Like I’m Living In A Cartoon” – Video

Having noted rather pointedly that "there's a subsidy in the marketplace that's worked out definitely to those that are holding equities," Santelli warns, when The Fed removes it, "it creates a problem for equities." However, when he is asked about the disconnect between the bond market (rates) and what The Fed is telling us, Santelli rightly explodes, lambasting the 'Hatzuis' of the world, "if[...]

Here’s What Central Bankers Will Do Next

by Bill Bonner Worse Off We’ve been meaning to write about what hasn’t happened yet. Not that we claim any knowledge of tomorrow or the day after. But we can look at the present. And here’s a guess about where it might lead. The middle classes – aka “the voters” – expressed themselves last week. They have been sorely used and they know it. The biggest money-fabricating program of[...]
