Yen Gold All-Time High Driven By Monetary Stimulus

The recent decision of the Japanese to inflate their economic growth is not an isolated decision. Japan is a closed market but they are not operating in a vacuum. The “unintended consequences” of their decision could reach to a global scale. In particular, the currency devaluation which is the result of the inflationary policy, is not exactly the type of outcome that the other economic powerhouses wished for. This brings the global currency war front stage globally.

Paul Brodsky: The Real Idea Behind The Trillion Dollar Coin

Obviously, the Trillion Dollar Coin idea is a political ploy with a targeted mission: to rid the US Treasury of its debt ceiling, which is an increasingly frequent and embarrassing public reminder of government ineptitude. Everyone knows government-led de-levering is not a serious threat. However, the irony of the scheme and its MMT / liberal Keynesian promoters could not be more delicious.

Peter Schiff: The QE Debate

There is an ongoing three way debate between those who believe the Fed should do more to strengthen the recovery, those who believe that the recovery is strong enough to continue on its own, and those who believe that the economy has been so fundamentally altered by the recession that no amount of stimulus can succeed in pushing unemployment down to pre-crash levels.

Consequences of Current Global Monetary Policy will be higher Gold and Silver Prices

Finally, we have a break to the upside in both gold and silver, something that many precious metals investors have been patiently waiting for, but expected to happen. The price of gold is now a tad away from breaching the $1700 an  ounce level, after smashing through the key resistance levels at $1625 an ounce and $1650 an ounce. AsUS Federal Reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke, began his eagerly awaited speech at the annual symposium at Jackson Hole, Wyoming, the price of gold dropped sharply. After trading above $1660 an ounce last Friday, the price of spot gold suddenly dropped to an intra-day low of $1644 an ounce. Afterwards, the price […]
