“Fiat Money Quantity” & $11,000 Gold

It is time to revisit the Fiat Money Quantity (FMQ), which totals US dollar money deposited in the banking system, the commercial banks’ money on deposit at the Fed and physical cash. Besides alerting us to how the expansion of fiat money is progressing, an objective of this exercise is to give some guidance on the price relationship with gold. It is particularly appropriate at a time when banking analysts have turned generally bearish, believing that the rally in gold is now over. The idea behind FMQ is to define the quantity of fiat money, which can then be compared …

Amerika’s Planned Economy Will Fail

President Woodrow Wilson was pivotal in the birth of The Amerikan Nation. One of the first all-in Progressives to gain power in the United States, Wilson wanted more and more aspects of life to be centrally controlled by the state under the excuse of ideological “good.” One particularly nefarious aspect of his power lust was his desire to grab the joystick and play the economy like a cheesy, old Atari game. He passed the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and started the USSA down the road to serfdom and a planned economy.

WARNING: The Coming Collapse Of U.S Net Worth Will Wipe Out Millions Of Americans

As the Financial Circus continues today, pushing down the precious metals prices, millions of Americans are going to get wiped out when the collapse of U.S. net worth begins in earnest.  Anyone with a tad bit of common sense realizes these financial markets today are totally disconnected from reality. With 90% of the U.S. media now in control by six large mega-corporations, Americans have no idea just how bad the U.S. financial system has become.  News stories today that would have caused a stock market crash and a spike in the precious metals years ago… no longer are a realistic …

Huge Victory For Gold And Silver Markets As Judge Orders Manipulation Lawsuit Against Gold-Fixing Banks To Proceed

In a long-awaited decision, a US Federal Judge today ruled that investors may pursue antitrust and manipulation claims against ScotiaBank and HSBC Holdings, clearing the way for silver manipulation price-fixing litigation and potentially opening up the spigot for countless similar such lawsuits. Back in April, precious metal traders felt vindicated when Deutsche Bank agreed to settle a July 2014 lawsuit alleging precious metal manipulation by a consortium of banks. As a reminder, In July 2014 we reported that a group of silver bullion banks including Deutsche Bank, Bank of Nova Scotia and HSBC (later UBS was also added to the …

The (160 to 1) Gold-Silver Ratio Every Investor Needs To Know About

According to my new research, there is a very important Gold-Silver ratio that every precious metals investor needs to know about.  While most precious metals investors are familiar with the Gold-Silver price ratio of 68/1 (presently) as well as the Silver-Gold production ratio of nearly 9/1 (2015), they have no idea about an even more important ratio that I will explain below. Before I get into this important Gold-Silver ratio, let’s quickly examine some of the historic ratios listed above.

The Tragic Consequences of Forced Egalitarianism

Different Breeding Populations Evolved Differently When life or death depends on your ability to follow a certain way of life, you are necessarily being selected for certain heritable characteristics. Some of these are dietary—an ability to digest milk or certain foods. Others, however, are mental and behavioral, things like aptitudes, personality type, and behavioral predispositions. This is because a way of life involves thinking and behaving in specific ways. Keep in mind, too, that most mental and behavioral traits have moderate to high heritability.

This One Chart Should Drive Investors Into Buying Gold & Silver

The U.S. financial system is in serious trouble and this one chart confirms it.  Investors who understand the negative consequences of this chart would be buying physical gold and silver hand over fist.  Unfortunately, Americans have been put to sleep by the Mainstream media as they continue to report that “business as usual forever and everything will be okay.” However, the opposite is the case as the U.S. economy and the financial system continue to disintegrate under the forces of massive debt, zero interest rates and a collapsing energy industry.  This is not a situation that will continue for many …

GOLD & DEBT: The 1929 Great Depression vs The Next Great Collapse

The situation Americans face in the future will be nothing like anything they have experienced in the past.  While we have seen old footage and heard stories about the Great Depression (starting in 1929), we have no idea how bad things really were during the 1930’s. At that time, approximately 25% of the American population were farmers.  Thus, when things really got bad, folks in the cities could move out and stay with their families or relatives on the country farm.  This is not an option for most Americans today as only 2% of the population are farmers and ranchers …

“A Date Which Will Live In Infamy” – President Nixon’s Decision To Abandon The Gold Standard

Franklin Delano Roosevelt called the Japanese “surprise” attack on the U.S. occupied territory of Hawaii and its naval base Pearl Harbor, “A Date Which Will Live in Infamy.”  Similar words should be used for President Nixon’s draconian decision 45 years ago this month that removed America from the last vestiges of the gold standard.

Unfathomable Prices for Silver? “Banking System Will Ultimately Require A Reset” – John Embry

This week, Egon von Greyerz met up with Sprott’s John Embry in London to discuss a subject that we suspect could peak the interest of more than a few readers. Could silver reach $1,000?   John and Egon cover an eclectic range of extremely important issues relevant to preserving capital, including: • Coming hyperinflation • Current situation – “This is insanity” • “If you don’t own gold, you won’t get it” • “Financial assets grotesquely overvalued” • Money managers don’t understand gold • Gold, silver – “Single best buying opportunity in history” • Silver and gold price targets • Valuation …

Spectacular Chinese Gold Demand 2015 Fully Denied By GFMS And Mainstream Media

In the Gold Survey 2016 report by GFMS that covers the global gold market for calendar year 2015 Chinese gold consumption was assessed at 867 tonnes. As Chinese wholesale demand, measured by withdrawals from Shanghai Gold Exchange designated vaults, accounted for 2,596 tonnes in 2015 the difference reached an extraordinary peak for the year. In an attempt to explain the 1,729 tonne gap GFMS presents three brand new (misleading) arguments in the Gold Survey 2016 and reused one old argument, while it abandoned five arguments previously put forward in Gold Survey reports and by GFMS employees at forums. Very few …
