davidstockmanscontracorner.com / by David Stockman / August 29, 2016

schiffgold.com / BY SCHIFFGOLD / AUGUST 25, 2016

Will Your Bank Survive the Coming Financial Crisis?

caseyresearch.com / August 23, 2016

Banks are “reaching for yield.”

You’ve probably heard us use this phrase. We normally say it when we’re talking about investors who buy risky assets in hopes of getting a decent return.

The Stock Market 2015-2016: Ugly Chopfest with an Equally Ugly Megaphone

charleshughsmith.blogspot.com / CHARLES HUGH SMITH / TUESDAY, AUGUST 23, 2016

There’s something fishy about this “new all-time highs” rally of 2016. It’s interesting to take a longer-term view of the S&P 500 (SPX). Looking at a 10-year chart, the decline from almost 1,600 to 667 in the Global Financial Meltdown of 2007-2009 doesn’t look […]

news.goldseek.com / By Graham Summers / 23 August 2016

A quick question for the “recovery” enthusiasts…

If the recovery is real and as strong as the “data” suggests… why are Central Banks engaged in the most aggressive stimulus in history?

“It’s Gone” – Why Foreign Demand For US Treasuries Has Disappeared

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / Aug 23, 2016

Step Aside Peter Pan: Japan’s PM Abe Is Super Mario During Olympics Closing Ceremony

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / Aug 22, 2016 12:30 PM

There is an odd infatuation among Japan’s ruling elite with fantasy characters: last June, BOJ governor Haruhiko Kuroda, who is running the greatest monetary experiment in history, essentially compared himself to Peter Pan in a speech at a formal speech during the BOJ-IMES […]
