COVID 19 and Limits to Global Growth

Robert Moriarty, Dr. Quinton Hennigh and Jeff Deist return as guests on this week’s program. The Club of Rome warns that “the earth’s interlocking resources–the global system of nature in which we all live–probably cannot support present rates of economic and population growth much beyond the year 2100, if that […]

The Party is over & our “Friends” Have Gone Home!

It’s been quite a party for America since World War II and especially since 1971 when President Nixon threw open the monetary liquor cabinet to Americans by detaching gold from money. That meant Americans didn’t have to work for their wealth because the Fed could print money that was accepted […]

Pretending the US is Solvent

Except for gold, all the key market metrics were up this week. I have a feeling—it’s only a feeling—that some of gold’s weakness may be due to price manipulation by the bullion banks to shape a bearish psychology before June 24 when Basel III goes into effect for European banks. […]

Will Basel III Lead to Honest Gold Price Discovery?

Alasdair Macleod, Michael Oliver and Dr. Quinton Hennigh return. Bullion banks and central banks have controlled the rise in gold prices through the application of newly-printed money to create fake supply and allow nearly infinite leverage in the gold market, relative to unencumbered physical supply. With banks front running profits […]

Will June 24 end gold price suppression?

There are some weeks, like the one just ended, when the basic metrics shown here every week don’t make any sense. Stocks and commodities rising should be bearish for U.S. Treasuries, but this week, long-dated Treasuries rose! But then you realize that markets are rigged at their very core with […]

Inflation? No Worries says David Rosenberg

David Rosenberg, Dr. Quinton Hennigh and Eric Coffin return as guests on this week’s program. While most investors believe a rising CPI in America is a serious economic threat, David thinks those worries are very much overblown. He says that what’s going on isn’t a fundamental shift, but rather a […]

Interest Rates Are Already Rising

In our analysis we have identified higher interest rates as the trigger that will burst the financial asset bubble. While Western central banks continue to suppress very short-term interest rates, insofar as they reflect the cost of borrowing, they are already rising as the chart of the US Treasury 10-year […]

Looking at Inflation

The week ending May 21 was clearly a “risk-off” week as everything except the traditional safe havens—gold and T-bonds—lost value. Last week the market was still shaking off the pain of worry over higher interest rates as a result of the shocking CPI numbers that are reminiscent of the 1970s. […]

Is Inflation Transitory?

Peter Boockvar, Chief Investment Officer of Bleakley Advisory Group, visits for the first time and Chris Taylor of Great Bear Resources will update us on the growth of that company’s tier-one gold discovery in Ontario. Quinton Hennigh provides an update on the production progress being made by Novo Resources’ Beatons Creek project.  After acknowledging […]

Are Rapidly Rising Prices Transitory?

Two metrics that stand out in our weekly table are the Rogers Raw Materials Index, up 2.22%, and the T-Bond (TLT), which went down 1.01%, meaning that interest rates rose. You might expect rates to rise when money flows into equities but U.S. equities were, at best, flat last week. […]

Why the Future of Money is Gold & Silver

Alasdair Macleod, Michael Oliver and Chen Lin return as guests on this week’s radio program. With bitcoin’s price still rising and expected to rise even more, there has been a growing belief in crypto currency circles that it will replace unbacked government currencies when they eventually fail. Alasdair says the […]

Real Inflation Pushing Forward

James Turk, the founder of Gold Money,  tweeted my IDW graphic last weekend, stating the following: “Measures of #inflation by private sources are more reliable than US gov’t stats. The true impact of #federalreserve money printing is worse than reported in #CPI or #PPI. “The 15-yr-old inflation index by Jay […]

America’s Economic Decline & Rising Geopolitical Tensions

John Rubino and Quinton Hennigh return as guests on this week’s program. America’s economic, social and spiritual decline is well recognized apart from Marxists who are cheering it on. U.S. debt is growing exponentially & can’t be serviced without higher rates that will send us into a deflationary depression akin […]

In Government and Scholars We Trust

Everything went up this week, so if ever there was a risk off week it was the one we just passed through, although something tells me we may be just at the beginning. President Biden, the Fed, Wall St., and the Pentagon see no reason why we can’t print money […]

Living & Investing in a Dystopian Digital Currency World

David McAlvany, Michael Oliver & Quinton Hennigh return on this week’s episode of the radio show. The handwriting is on the wall now for EVERYONE to see. Freedom to spend your money as you wish without government permission is about to end. That’s because a mismanaged global monetary system now […]

Appearance of U.S. Government Solvency

Growing fear of financial fragility in the markets and rising fears of inflation are keeping the Fed suppressing the long end of the yield curve and proclaiming anti-inflation rhetoric. It reminds me very much of my early adult years, of the inflationary 1970s, when my first mortgage rate was 17.5%. […]

Biden’s Last Throw of the Geopolitical Dice

Alasdair Macleod, Chen Lin and Michael Hudson return as guests this week on the radio program. One reality American policy makers overlook is that the basis for strong nations is a strong economic footing. Believers in the Keynesian fairy tale that you can create wealth by printing money are blinded […]

A Very Dangerous Economic Period

Our Good Friday celebration shortens the trading week to just four days. The last day of this trading week, April 1 was a day of resurrection for stocks more in tune with what we Christians will celebrate in the spiritual realm on Sunday. April 1 was a happier risk on […]

President Biden’s Next $3 Trillion Boondoggle

David Stockman, Michael Oliver & Michael Timmins return at this week’s program. “Leave it to the New York Times to remind us why prosperity is not just around the corner. And that’s regardless of whether or not the force-feeding of $6 trillion of Everything Bailouts into the US economy during […]

Real World Inflation

The financial markets enjoyed a great week at the expense of the monetary metals and commodities. And in his March 25, 2021, missive, Michael Oliver’s work suggests that commodities are likely to become involved in a choppy arm-wrestling consolidation at or around current levels for the next month or two […]
