What’s Wrong With Gold? Absolutely Nothing!

Without a doubt, the “real” yields (interest rates less inflation) are perhaps the most important determinant in the dollar price of gold. On your right are four charts that clearly demonstrate the correlation between “real” yields and the price of gold. Interest rates are on the vertical axis and the […]

Crescat’s Macro Economic Case for Gold

Michael Oliver and Quinton Hennigh return while Kevin Smith and Otavio “Tavi” Costa visit for the first time on this week’s program. At a time in Western culture when individuals are told to stop thinking and simply follow orders, Kevin and Tavi have demonstrated that if you want to avoid […]

Pressure on the Fed

A bit of air came out of the market this week, and as inflation rates rise, there will be more pressure on the Fed to start to reduce money printing by reducing the Fed’s bond buying binge. Another pressure point on the Fed may be the enormous increase in reverse […]

Making Sense of a Financial World Gone Mad

Frank Homes and Chen Lin return as guests on this week’s program while Walter (Jay) Buckley visits for the first time. If anyone can help us make sense of a world that seems to rely more on miracles of technology and on concepts of equality rather than on merit, it’s […]

Jobs Report Miss

This week the big news was the massive miss in the jobs numbers.  Nonfarm payrolls increased just 235,000 after an upwardly revised 1.05 million gain in July. The median estimate in a Bloomberg survey of economists was for 733,000. According to one source I read ~200,000 of the shortfall resulted […]

Fed Taper Talk: Fake out or Shake out?

David McAlvany, Michael Oliver and Dr. Roger Moss return on this week’s episode of the radio program. The Fed has been hinting at reducing QE. But how seriously should we take Fed tapering talk when its credibility isn’t any better than the credibility of Dr. Fauci’s mask wearing advice? The […]

Looking over into the Abyss

How can anyone really take the deflation argument seriously now? Sure, an accident could happen, but we saw again this week that at the first sign of a market meltdown, the Fed will give in. Eventually there will be a market meltdown but that may happen not in numerical terms […]

Preparing for Accelerating Price Inflation

Lyn Alden, Dr. Quinton Hennigh and Chen Lin return as guests on this week’s radio program. Lyn will explain why rates of inflation may be transitory but prices levels will continue to rise, and possibly dramatically so. Her outlook for oil and gas is very bullish because she doesn’t believe […]

Global Liquidity Crisis

By every measure this was a “risk off” week. And I believe James Rickards not only has the answer why but also that it may not be over yet by any means. His article published August 10, is titled, “Global Liquidity Crisis Is Underway.” Rickards expects these liquidity issues will […]

Profiting From The Coming Dollar Collapse

John Rubino, Patrick Highsmith and Michael Oliver return as guests on this week’s program. In 2004, John Rubino and James Turk wrote “The Coming Collapse of the Dollar and How to Profit from it.” John Maynard Keynes stated, “There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis […]

Gold Flash Crash

It’s been a very tough few months for gold share owners but I’m feeling a lot more confident at the end of this week after seeing gold hold above the $1,750 level and watching a 23-minute video discussion between Matterhorn principals Egon von Greyerz and Matthew Piepenburg address gold’s recent […]

The Great Eruption Is Upon Us!

Richard Maybury and Dr. Quinton Hennigh return as guests on this week’s program. The title of this week’s show is the main topic featured in Richard’s August 2021 monthly letter. Richard says he is 90% sure that the “Great Eruption” has begun. It will yield many bankruptcies, but also new […]

Last Week’s Markets

This was a great week for the rich and powerful establishment. Stocks rose in value, no doubt allowing the smart money to sell and build cash. With that kind of “good” inflation the establishment was happy to see “bad” inflation decline this week, evidenced by a decline in commodities and […]

The Fed’s Fast-Approaching Dilemma and Yours

Alasdair Macleod, Quinton Hennigh and Michael Oliver return as guests on this week’s program. On July 22, Alasdair wrote: “The problem fast approaching all major central banks is that a rise in interest rates will be brought forward by their misjudgment on price inflation, a development which will directly challenge […]

Surviving the Destruction of America

Dr. Roger Moss and Daby Carreras are first time guests and Peter Boockvar return as guests on this week’s program. As CIO of a $3.5 billion fund, Peter closely watches macro economic conditions. Are the June 5.2% CPI & 7.3% PPI readings hinting at the start of a significant 1970s […]

Markets are Increasingly Manipulated

Because Michael Oliver had another obligation during my Tuesday radio show, I prerecorded him on Monday for my Tuesday show. As you will recall, on Monday the equity market smacked down very hard and as that was happening Michael confirmed that the support structure for the S&P was broken. By […]

New Honest Monetary Deposits Are Yours Now!

John Rubino and Michael Oliver return and John Watson visits first the first time as guests on this week’s program. As our global fiat monetary system is obviously facing destruction and the international banking system is facing seismic changes, monetary deposits not denominated in fiat money but in grams of […]

Basel III May Indeed Be Profoundly Bullish for Gold & Silver

When you buy an ETF like SPDR Gold Shares (NYSE-GLD) you may believe you own gold. But that is patently false. What you own are claims to fantasy gold. GLD makes no promises that its coffers contain any gold that backs your shares and in fact only very large shareholders […]

Between a Rock and a Hard Place. Can the Fed Escape?

Alasdair Macleod, Patrick Highsmith and Quinton Hennigh return as guests on this week’s program. With foreigners no longer buying U.S. Treasuries, the Fed finds itself between a rock and a hard place; either it keeps on inflating or the whole confidence-based valuation of financial assets will collapse, either it raises […]

Fed Buying is Supporting Markets

Gold and T-Bonds, the safe havens, gained during the past week when equities were quite volatile. My IDW fell a bit again last week mostly because of commodity prices, which are taking a breather and perhaps providing some justification for the gain in T-Bonds. But there can be no doubt […]
