US Economy Is in the Eye of a Storm

The Daily Bell recently interviewed Doug Casey about “The Continuing Debasement of Money, Language and Banking in the Modern Age.” Casey talks not just about the evils of our central banking system, but also the fundamental case for gold and the end of Western civilization as we know it.

“I don’t see a real recovery until they stop debasing the currency, radically cut government spending and taxation and eliminate most regulation. In other words, cease doing the things that caused this depression. And that’s not going to happen until there’s a collapse of the current order…

I expect that we’ll go out of the eye of the storm this year; it’s overdue, actually. The analogy I like to use is that the leading edge of the storm was in 2007, now we’re in the eye of the hurricane, and when we move into the trailing edge it’s going to be much, much worse and last much, much longer than it was in the leading edge.”

In the US Economy, Even Good News Is Bad (Video)

In his latest video blog post, Peter Schiff addresses the weak non-farm payroll numbers announced on Friday and what they tell us about the true condition of the US economy. Peter believes that jobs numbers are going to keep getting worse as spring continues and that the Federal Reserve will be forced to pause and then reverse its quantitative easing. This will be extremely bullish for gold and bearish for the dollar.

“Where [a QE pause and reversal] is not expected is in the precious metals markets. Gold is still positive on the year. It’s doing better than stocks, but it has kind of been in a holding pattern since Crimea… People are trying to attribute the strength in gold this year to the uncertainties introduced by Russia in Crimea. Meanwhile, all of the strength in gold preceded that conflict.”

Meet “Lowflation”: Deflation’s Scary Pal

In a new commentary, Peter Schiff tears into the bogus new concept of “lowflation” and the misunderstanding that inflation actually stimulates economic growth. In reality, inflation benefits indebted governments and over-leveraged Wall Street speculators while cutting into the savings of retirees and savers. Of course, we know that gold and silver are two types of wealth that cannot be inflated by over-zealous central banks.

“In recent years a good part of the monetary debate has become a simple war of words, with much of the conflict focused on the definition for the word “inflation.” Whereas economists up until the 1960′s or 1970′s mostly defined inflation as an expansion of the money supply, the vast majority now see it as simply rising prices. Since then the “experts” have gone further and devised variations on the word “inflation” (such as “deflation,” “disinflation,” and “stagflation”). And while past central banking policy usually focused on “inflation fighting,” now bankers talk about “inflation ceilings” and more recently “inflation targets”. The latest front in this campaign came this week when Bloomberg News unveiled a brand new word: “lowflation” which it defines as a situation where prices are rising, but not fast enough to offer the economic benefits that are apparently delivered by higher inflation. Although the article was printed on April Fool’s Day, sadly I do not believe it was meant as a joke.

Up until now, the inflation advocates have focused their arguments almost exclusively on the apparent dangers of “deflation,” which they define as falling prices. Despite reams of evidence that show how an economy can thrive when prices fall, there is now a nearly universal belief that deflation is an economic poison that works its mischief by convincing consumers to delay purchases.”

Outsmarting Money-Printing with Gold & Silver (Video)

Greg Hunter of USAWatchdog interviewed Axel Merk about a broad range of topics this week. Merk talked about how the Federal Reserve’s policies do nothing for Main Street and why Yellen’s Fed is not going to stop the money spigot or raise interest rates anytime soon. They also spoke about the shortages of physical gold and silver due to higher and higher safe haven demand.

“Sure enough, when gold goes up for 12 years in a row, guess what? Some people use leverage. And so there has to be liquidation when the price plunges. That doesn’t mean there isn’t any demand there, of course. I don’t think of it as manipulation. I think of it as an opportunity. While the paper market is deleveraging, that provides opportunity, because the nominal price is lower. And it’s a buying opportunity if you want to buy the physical. That’s exactly what’s happening, that’s why there are shortages.”

The Stealth Rally: Gold Under the Radar

Peter Schiff's Gold Letter

The April 2014 Gold Letter was released today. In his new commentary, Peter Schiff examines gold’s stealth rally this year, explaining why investors are wrong to dismiss the best-performing asset of 2014. The latest article from Jeff Clark of Casey Research points out how people rush to gold during inflationary times. Our FAQ explains the price differences between products produced by public versus private mints. Lampoon the System’s comic reminds us that in spite of warmer weather, Yellen’s Federal Reserve can’t do a thing for the US economy.

“So far, 2014 has been a paradoxical year for gold. Many investors aren’t even aware that it has rallied more than 7%. On the rare occasion that the financial media mentions the yellow metal, it is only in the context of comparing the recent rise to last year’s decline.

In spite of this overwhelming negative sentiment, gold is experiencing a stealth rally as one of the best performing assets of the year. Let’s look at some important metrics of the most under-valued sector in this market.”
