Expect Deflation, Inflation And Hyperinflation In This Distorted Financial System

Expect Deflation, Inflation And Hyperinflation In This Distorted Financial System

Depending on the magnitude of additional “money printing” that the world’s central banks will unleash upon the global financial community, we could see hyperinflation in several countries within a few years. Why? Central banks will try everything to avoid or reverse a deflationary collapse in paper asset markets because a deflationary collapse is “game over” for their credibility, governments, and politicians. They will print and print more and continue to fuel the inflationary boom, and … the bigger the boom, the larger the distortions, and the deeper the collapse.

Silver and Gold: Shelter From the Storm

Silver and Gold:  Shelter From the Storm

Debt will increase substantially from here, until a massive reset occurs. Gold and silver, in spite of financial cartel resistance, will assert their real value and be priced much higher, depending on the quantity of debt created, loss of confidence in government and central bankers, and the amount of chaos that occurs during the coming storm. Exponentially increasing systems do not last forever. Gold and silver do.

Gold Is The Only Asset Class That Has Held Its Value Over The Millennium

Gold Is The Only Asset Class That Has Held Its Value Over The Millennium

You see these strange massive selling sprees of gold in the cash market. That’s not the way an investor usually would sell. That’s a good way to lose money. Those sellings there clearly were intended by someone to drive the price of the precious metals lower, and you look at who has the biggest interest there and get a pretty good idea where the purchase’s coming from. You may have further of that but the long term trend here is to the upside. Gold is the only investment class, only asset class that has held its value, its purchasing power over the millennium.

Mike Maloney: Expect First Real Deflation, Then Hyperinflation

Mike Maloney: Expect First Real Deflation, Then Hyperinflation

In this video, Mike Maloney is being asked where he sees the economy going in terms of inflation vs deflation. To answer that question, he refers to the book he wrote about a decade ago, in which he wrote the following: “First the threat of deflation, followed by a helicopter drop, followed by big inflation, followed by real deflation, and then followed by hyperinflation.”

John Williams: Currency Markets Will Stop Politicians Kicking The Can

John Williams: Currency Markets Will Stop Politicians Kicking The Can

Things could get so bad that gold would go to 100,000 an ounce. That is what would happen in a hyperinflation. The rise in the price of gold is reflecting the loss of purchasing power in the value of a currency (say the dollar). If gold would go up from 1,000 to 100,000 dollar an ounce, it would mean that one dollar would become worht a penny as a currency.

Hyperinflation Has Struck Already 56 Times – It Could Hit Again

Hyperinflation Has Struck Already 56 Times – It Could Hit Again

Nick Barisheff did an recent interview with Investor’s Digest of Canada. In it, he explained how an hyperinflationary period does not occur by accident. It is rather a process which comes at the end of five stages. The pattern is recurring. This article covers the process which leads to hyperinflation and the answer to the question why Wall Street inclines to discredit the yellow metal.

Could The Ongoing Financial Crime Affect The Gold Price?

Hera Research released an extremely interesting paper. The research company focuses on relationships between macroeconomics, government, banking, and financial markets in order to identify and analyze investment opportunities with extraordinary upside potential. In their paper, Hera analyzes the potential triggers of a collapse in the US dollar, which in turn would trigger a hyperinflation. The research company clearly expects we are approaching such an epic event, quoting Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises: “There is no means of avoiding the final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as the result of voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion, or later […]

Egon Von Greyerz: Money Printing vs Allocated Physical Gold

Egon Von Greyerz: Money Printing vs Allocated Physical Gold

Things don’t always need to be complex, they simply need to be clear. From that point of view, we really like the simplicity  which Egon Von Greyerz uses to describe the dynamics of the debt crisis. It all starts with excessive money printing and the absence of a currency backed by any hard asset. That’s the trigger for a distorted economic system in which the value of money decreases, real rates become negative, the currency devalues and price inflation increases (possibly ending up in hyperinflation). Some traditional thinkers will probably argue that “economic growth” can be the result of money printing. Some even believe that the more money is printed, the […]

Less than 900 days for hyperinflation in the US?

John Williams, who is the founder of ShadowStats.com, stated during a recent interview that the US is on track to become victim of hyperinflation the latest in 2014. He believes that “open ended QE” (which is nothing more than monetizing debt) is the key problem. He explains there is an annual deficit of 5 trillion dollar per year in the US, which includes the unfunded liabilities.  He declares the situation “beyond containment”. Central planners are responding to the current economic problems by simply increasing the amount of printed money. John Williams his expectations are that  we’ll soon see a heavy sell off in the dollar, quickly followed by a significant […]

Government and gold confiscation: tips to protect your assets

This article brings the point of view of Claudio Grass from Global Gold in Switzerland. My advice to everyone is simple and clear: “Get out of the current financial system,  avoid paper money and the banking system in general and move into physical precious metals.” David Stockman has put it this way: “ABCD – Anything Bernanke Cannot Destroy!” Confiscation is already here. I am not talking about outright confiscation of assets, but the confiscation of the buying power by inflating the money supply. If you keep your money in a bank account or “invest” it in bonds, you are actually losing money in real terms (i.e. after inflation). The decrease […]

Stagflation in extremis & the explosive rise of gold

Stagflation in extremis & the explosive rise of gold

Stagflation’s appearance in the 1970s was like an outbreak of three-headed children. It wasn’t supposed to happen. Prevailing wisdom—an oxymoron among economists—held that high employment and rising prices were economic handmaidens; and that, conversely, slowing economies and inflation were mutually exclusive In the 1970s, for the first time in capitalism’s history stagflation appeared, i.e. prices rose and economic growth stagnated; and, while economists would search for reasons to explain the apparently inexplicable, it was only because they avoided the obvious that they did not find the answer. In August 1971, President Nixon upon the advice of Milton Friedman—the same Milton Friedman who erroneously taught Ben Bernanke economic contractions can be […]
