Yesterday, I noted Zero Hedge’s headline at the start of a quiet, post-Easter session in which European markets were closed; i.e., “Sleepy Holiday Market prepares for scripted, daily low-volume levitation.” Today, on yet another quiet news morning, Zero Hedge writes “Traders walk in on another [...]

The Keynesian economists managing or advising the world’s Central Banks have always averred that they could pull us out of the weakest recovery in the post-WWII era if they were allowed to have their way.
Their “way” involves rampant debt monetization, also called Quantitative Easing or [...]
With China’s debt now bursting at the seams and the economic outlook in the United States signaling a major recession the governments and central banks of the world are very rapidly running out of options.

Under normal circumstances, I might let a rutty headline about gold in the Financial Times pass without much notice. I say “rutty” because the Financial Times has long been stuck in a rut as one of the principle apologists for Keynesian economics — [...]

Foreign individuals and businesses long ago cut back on their purchases of U.S. bonds. Their place was taken by foreign central banks. The central banks simply created money in their own currency and used it to buy our bonds.

Central bank’s ongoing and so-far-successful efforts to crush short-term volatility and encourage hapless individuals into the world’s nominally rising stock markets has had consequences. Inequalities abound (rich vs poor, corporate profits vs capex/jobs, bond yields vs growth hopes) but nowhere else is this more evident – [...]

Many decades of Keynesian-inspired economic and monetary corruption have left advanced economies with a legacy of debt and low savings. In a nutshell, that is the problem which is driving us into another financial crisis. That moment could be drawing upon us, signalled by the recent [...]

As we noted earlier, yesterday’s ramp and the continued push higher in futures overnight has been stoked by first Japan, then China, and then Europe headlines proclaiming the great news that economic data is bad enough for the central banks to come back to refill the [...]

A new report from Natixis, the asset management and investment banking division of Groupe BPCE, the second largest bank in France and one of the largest megabanks in the world with over $1.4 trillion in assets, predicts what daredevil voices at the maligned margin [...]

Yet again, it seems, once senior political or economic figures leave their ‘public service’ the story changes from one of “you have to lie, when it’s serious” to a more truthful reflection on reality. As Finanz und Wirtschaft reports in this great interview, Bill White – [...]
Buying stocks on the momentum trade as central banks around the world gradually hiked their monetary bases over the past five years has been a winning hand. However, the next stage of the central bank plan is to overshoot on monetary expansion and force inflation to reduce the real burden [...]

A while back, I posted a chart of the Custodial Holdings of Treasuries for Foreign Central Banks that revealed a sharp drop in the number held from over $3.021 trillion to near $2.855 trillion, or about $166 billion. At the time I mentioned it was rather [...]
With no plan to manage an economy in which expanding credit no longer generates growth, the two nations are rapidly reaching Peak Everything. Let’s call the strategy of picking all the low-hanging fruit in an economy Plan A: you know, expanding credit, lowering interest rates, building infrastructure, fueling speculative frenzies, [...]
Central banks in the West are emptying their vaults in an attempt to maintain the illusion that the national currencies they manage are immune to monetary debasement. The central banks are trying to perpetuate a system in which governments believe they can borrow and print money endlessly to fulfill the [...]
Central banks will keep pumping up the global economy until inflation does develop and that will be the next surprise for investors. How do they prepare for that? Buy gold? Mining stocks? Broader equities could be a loser in this game.
Skandinaviska Enksilda Banken chief strategist Thomas Thygesen discusses growth [...]

As we have discussed numerous times, nothing lasts forever – especially reserve currencies – no matter how much one hopes that the status-quo remains so, in the end the exuberant previlege is extorted just one too many times. Headline after headlines shows nations declaring ‘interest’ or [...]

It’s early Tuesday morning, and I’m sitting in one of the most peaceful places imaginable the Denver airport at 5:00 AM, where I’m the only sole in sight. This evening, Miles Franklin is hosting a “Protect Your Wealth” dinner in Minneapolis, Minnesota where Andy Schectman and [...]

Are you saying it took the highbrow economist cadre five years to figure out and agree with what we first said in 2009, and for which we received endless ridicule, abuse and accusations of fringe insanity? Yes. We are saying that.

The last time global equity markets were falling at this pace (on a growth scare) was the fall of 2011. That time, after a big push lower, November saw a mass co-ordinated easing by central banks to save the world… stock jumped, the global economy spurted [...]
Today legendary Marc Faber spoke with King World News about the horrific plan of the global elites and the crooked IMF. This is part I of a stunning series of written interviews that will be released today on KWN. Below is what Faber had to say in this powerful interview.
China gave the markets a big boost this morning by announcing an immediate $25Bn program for railway construction and another $50Bn a year for “more stuff.” That sent the Nikkei flying to 15,150 but then Chinese Non-Manufacturing PMI fell to 54.5 for March [...]

As noted previous articles… the global central banks have begun to realize that the success of their reflationary efforts has resulted in yet another speculative bubble in asset classes, specifically stocks and real estate.
Nowhere are these issues more evident today than in China.
Today’s market situation shows similarities with the reflationary periods of 1897 to 1914 and 1933 to 1939. As we all know, they ended in inflation and war. We are currently in a highly deflationary environment, and the banks are fighting this by pumping up trillions of liquidity in the system, [...]

The word dollar didn’t even come up. “The volume of transactions that can be carried out in the Chinese currency in international and German financial centers is not commensurate with China’s importance in the global economy,” the Bundesbank explained in its dry manner on [...]
"Many gold bugs readily admit silver to be more depressed than gold. Ted Butler stated long ago that not even gold has a users association. The fact of the existence of this group is another of many proofs that synthetic money creators hate and fear silver even more than their loathing for gold." - Charles Savoie
