Investors Prepare for the Incoming Regime in Washington

Last year provided extraordinary challenges to Americans as well as people around the world. Hundreds of thousands of deaths were attributed to the Chinese coronavirus. The economic carnage and the attendant death and suffering along with the loss of civil liberties was grossly underreported. We’ve seen one economic recession already and are likely in the early stages of a more extended depression. 2020 was capped by a rancorous presidential election with lots of allegations (and at least some evidence) of vote fraud glossed over by the legislatures, courts, media, and official investigators responsible for guaranteeing fair elections. Americans enter 2021 more divided than at any time since the Civil War. […]

Government Insolvency Gets Harder to Ignore

Government Insolvency Gets Harder to Ignore

Several U.S. states and the federal government are hopelessly insolvent. It’s something many bullion investors have known for years. The real question is when this reality will pierce the mainstream illusion that deficits, and the crushing pile of debt which accompany them, don’t matter. That moment drew closer last week when ratings agencies downgraded Illinois state bonds to one notch above “junk” status.

Another Potential Government Shutdown… Oh My!

Another Potential Government Shutdown… Oh My!

The U.S. Congress runs up against their self-imposed borrowing limit once again this week. During the last tussle over the borrowing cap in October 2015, Congress agreed to schedule this week’s political theater to occur well after last Fall’s elections. They didn’t even bother to guess how much additional headroom would be needed. They just suspended the debt limit altogether. Neither Democratic nor Republican leadership wanted voters focused on borrowing and spending when they went to the polls. Government employees can count on eventually getting paid for any time they are furloughed. When the show is over, most in Congress will agree to saddle taxpayers (and their kids) with a […]
