The Great Manipulation of Financial Markets Seems to be Reaching its Limits / Philippe Herlin / July 25, 2014

The great manipulation of financial markets seems to be reaching its limits; bubbles are at their highest, and so are risks. The central banks’ money printing machines, along with interest rates kept on the floor, are working perfectly well: The yields on sovereign bonds are at historical [...]

No Inflation Friday: Dollarized Panama issues price controls for basic goods / by Simon Black on July 25, 2014

Less than four weeks after starting his new job, Panama’s President Juan Carlos Varela already has a serious challenge to deal with: empty grocery shelves.

This is largely a self-inflicted wound that was bound to happen.

Fresh on the heels [...]

Yellen: Where No Man Has Gone Before / By Peter Schiff / July 25, 2014

Although Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen said nothing new in her carefully manicured semi-annual testimony to Congress last week, her performance there, taken within the context of a lengthy profile in the New Yorker (that came to press at around the same time), should confirm [...]

Bubbling Inflation Risks Could Create New Dilemmas For Central Banks / Justin Pugsley / July 25, 2014

Inflation risks in the world economy could be ratcheting up, despite the winding down of the US Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing programme posing a new dilemma for central banks, which could have a considerable impact on forex markets.

A resurgence of inflation would [...]

The Coming Slump / By Alasdair Macleod / 25 July 2014

Governments and central banks have made little or no progress in recovering from the Lehman crisis six years ago. The problem is not helped by dependence on statistics which are downright misleading. This is particularly true of real GDP, comprised of nominal GDP deflated by an [...]

Japanese Inflation Holds Near 23 Year Highs As Food, Energy, & TV Costs Soar / by Tyler Durden on 07/24/2014 19:39

Japanese CPI printed 3.6% in June, modestly down from May’s 3.7% YoY, but hotter than the expected 3.5% YoY analysts predicted. If you don’t eat food or use energy then inflation merely bit 2.3% of your income this year but if you did then you may have [...]

Thoughts on Wild Swings in Price / Dan Norcini / July 23, 2014

It is both amusing and saddening at the same time to read the continued comments from the perma bulls in the gold community who bemoan every sharp fall in gold as the work of some sinister force working to deliberately keep the price of their beloved yellow [...]

Clear and Present Danger Zone / GE Christenson / July 23, 2014

Ding, Ding, Ding! The bell tolls, not for the 1%, but for the remaining 99% in Europe, the UK, Japan, and the US.

What Danger Zone? The powers-that-be must find a way to keep the masses under control, raise taxes, enrich themselves and monetize the [...]

Sign of Startup-Bubble Top? Banana Republic Trots out ‘Startup Guy’ Look / by Wolf Richter / July 23, 2014

Bubbles are easy to discern, despite the Fed’s rhetoric that bubbles cannot be discerned. What’s hard is pinpointing the moment they top out. But that’s precisely what everyone wants to know: make tons of easy money as the bubble is inflating, then cash out [...]

When All You Have Left Is the Cost of Breakfast at McDonald’s / By Dennis Miller / 23 July 2014

When I was 20 years old, I sat through my first day of a business law course at Northwestern University. The professor began by writing two words on the blackboard (in the prehistoric days of blackboards and chalk): Caveat emptor. He raised his [...]

This Is The Timeline For The Terrifying Endgame Of Destruction / July 23, 2014

With a non-stop flow of propaganda from Western mainstream media outlets, today Michael Pento spoke with King World News about the timeline for the terrifying endgame of financial destruction. Pento also discussed what he is doing with his firm’s money ahead of the coming chaos.

Pento: “Inflation is a [...]

The Rot Within, Part II: Inflation Is Not “Growth” / CHARLES HUGH SMITH / TUESDAY, JULY 22, 2014

Just as the Federal Reserve cannot directly force you to stick the needle of monetary heroin (debt) into your arm, it also can’t force employers to pay employees more. The official policy of the Central Bank (Federal Reserve)/government is: inflation is necessary for “growth,” i.e. [...]

How to Start Reforming the Federal Reserve Right Now / by Brendan Brown / Wednesday, July 23, 2014

First the good news. The House Financial Services Committee has held a hearing on “Legislation to Reform the Federal Reserve on its 100-year Anniversary.” The hearing focused on a bill introduced by Scott Garrett and Bill Huizenga which would require the Fed [...]

The Downward Spiral In Housing Begins… / David Kranzler / July 22, 2014

Mortgage applications continue to plummet. Housing starts take a big drop in June. The increase in the homebuilder sentiment index is deceptive. Homebuilder stocks are negatively diverging from the S&P 500.

With middle class household income after inflation declining and the first-time homebuyer cohort over-leveraged [...]

Gold: If The Worst Is Over, What’s Next? / By Stewart Thomson / 22 July 2014

A number of top bank economists have turned bullish on gold in the past few months. That’s helping to boost confidence amongst thousands of Western gold community investors. Scotiabank and HSBC have lead the way on that front, and now top metals strategist Mike Widmer at [...]

Rising Wages Where? Real Wages Post First Annual Decline Since 2012 / by Tyler Durden / 07/22/2014 10:31

For all the talk about “noisy inflation” this and “rising prices are good for the economy” that, what the Fed’s cheerleading squad continues to ignore is the one most important inflation the US economy needs in order to actually have a sustainable recovery instead [...]

Euro Slips, but will it Break? / by Marc Chandler / July 22, 2014

The US dollar is posting modest gains against most of the major currencies. The Australian dollar is a the main exception. Following the government’s nonchalant attitude last week, the central bank governor failed to mention the exchange rate in a speech. This seems to be emboldening [...]

CPI Remains Stubbornly High as Yellen’s “Noise” Won’t Go Away / by Tyler Durden / 07/22/2014 08:37 -0400

Consumer Price Inflation was 2.1% in June (as expected) remaining above the Fed’s mandate levels and worryingly for all those who see the Fed as omniscient… refusing to go “noisily” down. Core CPI fell very modestly to 1.9% year-over-year but the jump in gasoline prices accounted [...]

Inflation where it matters: Close to 50 percent of Americans indicate spending more on groceries and fuel this summer. Nearly one third indicate more spending on rent and mortgage payments. / mybudget360 / July 19, 2014

The stock market continues to move upwards ambivalent to economic indicators and the reality that inflation is permeating throughout our economy. The Fed continues to point at CPI as evidence that inflation remains subdued and this gives them the motivation to move forward with monetary policies [...]

Where The Real Inflation Is / by Tyler Durden on 07/18/2014 19:53

Despite being dismissed as “noise”, inflation is here and it’s rising. As the following chart shows, if you eat, drive, use electricity, or live in a house, you are paying dramatically more this year than you did last year. On the bright side, if you wear [...]

Sanctions and Airliners — Paul Craig Roberts / By Paul Craig Roberts / July 17, 2014

The unilateral US sanctions announced by Obama on July 16 blocking Russian weapons and energy companies access to US bank loans demonstrate Washington’s impotence. The rest of the world, including America’s two largest business organizations, turned their backs on Obama. The US Chamber [...]

Godzilla Destroys Tokyo / By Dan Norcini / July 15, 2014

I thought that might be a catchy title because what happens across the markets, whenever we get one of these Fed Chair Testimony days, is more like what happens to Tokyo every time Godzilla goes on one of his rages.

Most people think they know [...]

The Immorality Of Paper Money / Bob Livingston / 14 July 2014 16:44

This article was written by Bob Livingston and originally published at Personal Liberty Digest

One of today’s most common economic fallacies is that the soaring stock market is evidence of economic recovery. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Stocks have almost tripled since the 2008 [...]

Futures Unchanged Before Janet Yellen’s Congressional Testimony / by Tyler Durden / 07/15/2014 07:07 -0400

It has been a mixed overnight session, following data out of China first showing that any hopes of ongoing PBOC tapering are dead and buried, following the June report showing money and loan creation (1.08 trillion Yuan up from 871 billion in May [...]

Meanwhile, In Argentina: Riot Police Unleash Tear Gas & Water Cannons In Buenos Aires – Live Feed / by Tyler Durden / 07/13/2014 22:44 -0400

With the nation teetering on the brink of default amid major inflation pressures at home and growing poverty (and Kirchner facing pressure into next year’s election), today’s loss in the FIFA World Cup final appears to have lit the blue touch paper. As RT [...]

June 2014 – Noise / Frederick J. Sheehan / Wednesday, July 9, 2014

On June 18, 2014, and July 2, 2014, Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen announced her bureaucracy will let inflation do its own thing. She is steadfast in her determination to meet the Fed’s dual mandates under the Bernanke-Yellen dispensation, that is, she will not interfere [...]

The Red Queen’s Race in pay raises: Record number of employed US workers report no change in wages or salary. Stagnant wages and inflation eating away at purchasing power. / mybudget360 / July 11, 2014

A record number of Americans currently working are reporting no wage increases over the last year. What is important to note in this recent report from the Federal Reserve is that this is for those working and staying in their current job. As we know, we have a [...]

Asset Boom & Inflation Ahead? / By Michael Kilbach / July 10th, 2014

The “price” of anything is a measurement of something just as a “mile” is a measurement of something. A mile measures distance, a “gallon” measures volume and a “pound” measures weight. But because the actual “value” of a currency can fluctuate, the “price” of the [...]

Three cheers for the fear trade! / By Clif Droke / 11 July 2014

The long-anticipated summer rally for the precious metals (PM) sector gained strength this week even as the U.S. broad market stumbled. The recent plunge in small cap stocks isn’t an unrelated phenomenon, however; it’s one of the reasons behind the rally in the PM sector. [...]

The Perfect Crime and the Plight of the Modern Silverite / Dr. Jeffrey Lewis / Jul 10, 2014

Silver is not just any old commodity. It is old money. Despite massive efforts and price fixing, clipping and manipulation, it has remained central to monetary and political systems for centuries. Today it is small and relatively dark in the context of modern investing.
