Why The Gold Price Rose $50 On Thursday June 19th

Why The Gold Price Rose $50 On Thursday June 19th

As I started writing in these pages in 2014, inflation is becoming a real problem in America. Years ago, I started writing about how all this money the Federal Reserve is creating out of thin air would become inflationary. That’s exactly what is starting to happen now. I have said it many times before: inflation in the U.S. economy is going to be a major problem. Gold is the best hedge against inflation. That’s why it’s an important part of any investment portfolio.

Gold And Silver – Western World Is Upside Down

In a break from a thematic undertone to link to gold and silver, here are some ramblings that are more underpinnings to the core problems that have left people unfocused and dealing with symptoms, no matter how they may seemingly appear to be core issues.

In an excellent video presentation, Claudio Grass, Managing Director at Global Gold Switzerland, explains why a crash of the financial and monetary system seems inevitable. The presentation covers all actual issues like currency wars, rigged markets, central bankers’ interventions, statistics manipulation, monetary mismanagement and financial repression.

Why The Bust Is Inevitable According To The Austrian Business Cycle Theory

Why The Bust Is Inevitable According To The Austrian Business Cycle Theory

The newest publication from Global Gold Switzerland “The Clean Slate” focuses on the theory and practice of economic cycles. In just 12 pages, the “Austrian Business Cycle Theory” is explained in a simple and accessible way. The key is that economies operate in cycles, they go through ‘booms’ and ‘busts’, ‘expansions’ and ‘recessions.’ Austrian School economists argue that central banks don’t help in smoothing the amplitude of the cycles, but are actually the root cause of the business cycle.

The Derivatives World Is Playing Russian Roulette. What’s At Stake?

The Derivatives World Is Playing Russian Roulette. What’s At Stake?

derivatives suck a huge amount of capital out of the global economies each year, and that makes ideal circumstances increasingly difficult to maintain. Instead of paying banker bonuses, that capital could be used for constructive projects. The financial system is unlikely to continue operating under ideal circumstances. When another 2008 crisis arrives the supposed zero sum game, less commissions of course, becomes a black hole of daisy-chained obligations that might collapse the American, European and Asian financial systems. It has happened before.

Jim Rickards: Money Printing Will Destroy Confidence At Some Point

Jim Rickards: Money Printing Will Destroy Confidence At Some Point

On the myth that it is not important how much is printed, Jim Rickards says that the Fed’s safety net of printing has holes in it. If the money printing could go on indefinitely then you would be right and I would agree with you but it cannot go on indefinitely. The Fed could legally print more than the $4 trillion they’ve already created — $8 trillion, $12 trillion, $16 trillion. Some people say that they can do that — legally they can but they will destroy confidence at some point.

If Reflation Is Here, Then Gold Is Your Ultimate Hedge

If Reflation Is Here, Then Gold Is Your Ultimate Hedge

The financial system must come down (crash) before it can be rebuilt based on sound foundations. That will come with the crash of all paper currencies. In that transition period, gold will be the king, protecting the wealth and the hedge against the artificial wealth in the system. History has shown that debt defaults have occurred several times and the financial system has collapsed several times. In each instance, the only form of money that survived, was gold and silver.

The Federal Reserve, Janet Yellen, QE and Gold

We need to see more in the way of all round strength in this sector before we can implement an aggressive acquisitions strategy and so we have the lion’s share of our portfolio in cash. However, allocating a small amount of your investment funds to the acquisition of a few good quality gold and silver stocks in order to have a one foot in the precious metals camp might not be a bad idea, but go very gently as these are dangerous times for gold bugs.

10 Signs That Reveal Mounting Panic In The Banking System

The mainstream media’s job one is to always obfuscate any potentially dangerous news that has a chance of frightening investors or depositors.

Is Quantitative Easing The Killer Solution?

If the 2000 collapse of the US dot.com bubble was an economic heart attack, the 2008 economic collapse was a stroke, a stroke so severe that the usual central bank response, to lower interest rates, did nothing to revive economic growth. The ongoing economic crisis is only part of a much larger and far more significant paradigm shift. Gender, cosmic polarities, institutions, cultures and consciousness will all be affected. These are dark times but it is also true that it is darkest before the dawn.

6 Signs That 2014 Will Be The Year Of The Super Crash

As we have finally arrived in the magic year 2014, in which almost every economic and business cycle is trending down, it seems that things are perfectly lining up for a melt down. If it would have been true that the debt crisis was contained (like our political leaders try to make us believe), then there is a huge divergence with recent trends. This article looks at six different trends which are lining up for an historic sell off in the markets. As readers observe, we stay as factual as possible.
