Yesterday, we reckoned about the return of the “money multiplier” to the economic stage.
Today, we announce the pending return of another creature of finance, dormant for decades… dead, but not buried. The latest rumors place the beast in the vicinity of […]

Coverage of central banks and monetary policy in popular financial media outlets like Bloomberg, Financial Times, Forbes, Wall Street Journal, and The Economist is almost uniformly bad. The reporting and analysis are superficial, and the writers tend to assume facts not in evidence. The same myths […]

“The problem with central banks is that they increase the quantity of money in the same way that the problem with piping sewage into a swimming pool increases the quantity of water.”
It’s not really about the quantity, is it? It’s about the quality.
We believe […]

Remember when bashing central banks and predicting financial collapse as a result of monetary manipulation and intervention was considered “fake news” within the “serious” financial community, disseminated by fringe blogs?
In an interview with Swiss Sonntags Blick titled appropriately enough “A Recession […]

It’s truly incredible how much ground I have to cover each and every day, given the relentlessly expanding tsunami of horrible – or better put, “PM bullish, everything-else-bearish” – headlines as the terminal phase of history’s largest, most destructive fiat Ponzi scheme plays out. Frankly, it’s […]

The world is sitting at the edge of a massive deflationary cliff. Even though Central Banks are desperately trying to keep the world’s financial assets from plunging down into the great depression below, signs suggest they are losing the battle.
One critical sign is the […]

One month ago, when we last looked at the Fed’s update of Treasuries held in custody, we noted something troubling: the number had dropped sharply, declining by over $22 billion in one week, one of the the biggest weekly declines since January 2015, […]

“Everything about recent experience,” Paul Krugman says, “suggests that the world desperately needs fiscal expansion to boost demand and … that our sole reliance on central banks isn’t working.”
As evidence, Krugman points to a […]

Gold and silver and the mining stocks still have tremendous YTD gains despite the highly manipulated take-down that has been orchestrated since early Wednesday morning. The smash has been executed entirely in the paper derivatives in London and NYC. De rigeur for the Central Banks.

In the beginning it was cute: the dollar – and bond yields – soared on expectations Trump was going to make inflation great again, thanks to a massive, $5 trillion excess debt-funded fiscal stimulus package, sending financial stocks into the stratosphere and the Dow Jones […]
