Two Years Later, Larry Fink Confirms Zero Hedge Was Right

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 03/26/2014 12:41 -0400

ZIRP Up Next?

news.goldseek.com / By Gary Tanashian / 20 March 2014

Everyone expects Janet Yellen to be a rolling over, inflationist stooge just like they did Ben Bernanke. Bernanke came on board after Alan Greenspan had taken the Fed Funds rate up to around 5% if I remember correctly. Inflationists and gold bugs thought they had it [...]

Fed Flails About To Squash “Misleading” (Very Inconvenient) Unemployment Measure

testosteronepit.com / By Wolf Richter / FEBRUARY 5, 2014 AT 4:06PM

The Fed has been using the unemployment rate, which dropped from 10% in October 2009 to 6.7% now, as incontrovertible proof that its heroic QE and zero-interest-rate policies were successful and that Chairman Ben Bernanke could ride off into the sunset with a [...]

Today, I’ll be writing of a topic that has gestated in my “future article” file for some time; i.e., the financial repression rapidly overtaking the Western world – but particularly, the “land of the free.” The catalyst for writing today was last night’s news that the Democrat-controlled [...]

The Fed Is Playing Global Pump-and-Dump

People often criticize me for objecting to the Federal Reserve’s Quantitative Easing (QE) and Zero Interest-Rate Policy (ZIRP) on the grounds that they are setting the stage [...]

Wide World of Horrible Headlines

blog.milesfranklin.com / Andrew Hoffman / January 6th, 2014

As any homeowner knows, sometimes the need to “housekeep” grows too overbearing to ignore. In other words, when dust overruns one’s bedroom, kitchen and office, it must be addressed. As is the case with “horrible headlines” in the economic world; which globally speaking, are accumulating at [...]

PHYSICAL Buying Reaction – Worldwide

silverseek.com / Ranting Andy / Wednesday, December 18th

How can I possibly summarize the Fed’s pathetic “taper” of $10 billion/month; whilst lowering its “unemployment rate” threshold, and essentially promising ZIRP until at least 2017? I know, a veritable money-print-a-thon. Please read my new article tomorrow, as following yesterday’s “pre-FOMC” commentary, I did the equivalent [...]

sunshineprofits.com / Matt Machaj / DECEMBER 16, 2013, 10:50 AM

On November 19th at National Economists Club Annual Dinner Bernanke gave a speech which could be seen as a sort of testimony or farewell (probably one of many coming soon). The message he has sent was in perfect compliance with what was being communicating [...]

The Stock Bubble In Context (Will The Last Bear Please Turn Out The Lights?)

testosteronepit.com / November 25, 2013 at 3:33PM

Bubbles don’t happen in a vacuum, but in a context. Which is this: 47.6 million Americans receive food stamps, almost triple the 17.2 million in 2000 when the dotcom bubble blew up. The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, which distributes 1.1 million pounds of food a week, mostly [...]

NGDP to Infinity

blog.milesfranklin.com / By Andrew Hoffman / November 18th, 2013

At the breakneck pace global inflation is being expanded, it’s difficult to keep up with the Goebbels-inspired “lingo” utilized to mask it. No better example of “financial understatement” is the term quantitative easing – in reference to money printing; along with Long-Term Refinancing Operations and [...]
