Go Bold with Gold

The idea of gold standard continues to become more mainstream, as people realize the current monetary regime is out of control. Judy Shelton writes in The Weekly Standard:

“Should the soundness of the dollar be subordinated to other policy objectives, as determined by a small committee of Federal Reserve officials meeting in Washington, D.C., eight times a year? Would private individuals make better economic and financial decisions if they knew the value of the dollar was not slated to deteriorate annually by some unknown percentage?”

The Consensus Is In – Market Ready to Crash (Video)

Peter Schiff appeared on Fox Business “Morning Bell” yesterday and discussed that when the stock bubble bursts, the Fed will likely try to save the bubble instead of the dollar.

“The bottom is either going to drop out of the market or the dollar – and I’m betting actually that it’s the latter. But the problem is if the Federal Reserve is prepared to sacrifice the dollar in order to save the market, real returns on US assets are going to suffer dramatically as a result.”

Americans… The Best Spenders of Other People’s Money (Video)

Fox Business spoke with Peter Schiff on “Money with Melissa Francis,” where Peter points out that it’s not the geopolitical events that investors should be worried about, but the failed monetary policy in the US.

“What I think American really have to worry about, at least from the perspective of an investor, is not what the Russian separatists are doing in the Ukraine , but what Janet Yellen and her cohorts are doing at the Federal Reserve, because far more damage is being inflicted now on the US economy and will be inflected on investors by the Federal Reserve.” – Peter Schiff

Rick Santelli vs. Conventional Ignorance (Video)

You may have seen the explosive debate between Rick Santelli and Steve Liesman on CNBC’s Halftime Report this week. Santelli admittedly “blew a gasket” when he began to challenge the conventional “wisdom” that the Federal Reserve has actually helped the economy with its quantitative easing. So was Santelli completely off-base? Has the Fed’s stimulus been successful? Absolutely not. In a longer segment on his radio show this week, Peter Schiff reviewed Santelli’s points and defended his argument that the Fed’s stimulus is actually laying the groundwork for much worse economic woes.

“When the collapse finally comes, they’re going to say, ‘Nobody could have seen this coming!’ … They’re not going to realize that this phony recovery and the economic monetary policy behind it is going to be the reason for the next crisis. But because it takes years to unfold, they can’t connect the dots, and they think that anybody who saw it early and warned about it is just a stopped clock.”

Evolving Beyond the US Dollar Hegemony (Video)

Major news hit this week that the BRICS have launched their own development bank to challenge the currently Western-dominated banking system. Read about it here. Who could better explain the rationale behind this new bank than the author of the book Currency Wars, Jim Rickards? Rickards appeared on CNBC this week to share his thoughts. His message? The world is ready to leave the dollar behind and kick the irresponsible United States out of the economic driver’s seat.

“Every single member of the BRICS, multiple times has voiced dissatisfaction with the dollar, the dollar hegemony, the dollar-based system, and the IMF, which is really dominated by the US. So it’s not that there’s a revolution that happens overnight, but it’s more of an evolution away from the dollar.”

The Fed’s Monetary “Experiment” Is a Failure

More and more mainstream investors are waking up to the economic problems stemming from the Federal Reserve’s unprecedented amount of money-printing in the last six years. This new opinion piece from Investor’s Business Daily takes a look at Janet Yellen’s congressional testimony and explains why the economy will be reeling for years from the damage done by QE. If you agree with people like Peter Schiff and believe that the “Real Crash” is approaching, make sure you’ve protected your savings with physical gold and silver.

“The recovery is not yet ‘complete,’ Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen suggested Tuesday, but the central bank plans to let interest rates rise anyway. We’ll soon learn just how solid this so-called recovery is.

‘The economy is continuing to make progress toward the Fed’s objectives of maximum employment and price stability,’ Yellen told Congress, predicting ‘a moderate pace’ of growth for the economy ‘over the next several years.’

Sadly, we don’t fully share her rosy outlook. Indeed, we think the Fed’s extraordinary interventions over the past 5-1/2 years have distorted markets and prices, and have held the economy back.”

The Fed Has Trapped Itself In a Market Mirage

In a new commentary published by The Gold Republic Journal, renowned author and economist Jim Rickards explains why the Federal Reserve cannot safely exit its quantitative easing program. Rickards argues that the supposed strength of the US markets is a complete mirage created by the Fed’s policies.

“The Federal Reserve, the central bank of the US, is nearing the end of its ability to manipulate the US economy without producing consequences worse that those it set out to avoid in 2008. The Fed has no good exits from seven years of market manipulation. If it continues its current policy of reducing purchases of assets, the so-called ‘tapering,’ it risks throwing the U.S. into a recession. If it reverses course and pauses the taper and later increases asset purchases, it risks destroying confidence in the dollar among foreign creditors of the U.S. Both outcomes are potentially disastrous, but there are no good outcomes on the horizon. This is the result of manipulating markets to the point where they no longer function as markets providing useful price signals and guiding the efficient allocation of capital. Today markets are a mirage, created by the Federal Reserve, which is caught in a prison of its own device.”
