A ‘Paradigm Shift’ Akin to the 1930s With Gold Diversification

Of course I have believed this with all my heart, soul and mind for many years. Many of us gold bugs have been way ahead of our time and missed an opportunity to grab easy money be looking too far ahead. But now, I FEAR Dalio is right and our time has come. Not a good thing. But it is what it is.   This whole idea of pushing interest rates way below the collective “Time Preference” of the markets is the tipping point for currency destruction. I have no doubt that we are nearing that point in...

Black Hole In Global Banking Is Being Exposed

Almost a decade ago, the global financial crisis of 2008-09 exposed billions of people to the risks within the global financial/banking sector.  With all this money flowing around the globe and with banks able to facilitate greater and more diverse risk/derivatives investments, the central banks and insurance companies are left with an incredible “black hole” of exposed risk that is almost impossible to quantify.  When we add the shadow/gray market banking risks into this equation and begin...

Peter Schiff: Capitalism Isn’t the Problem Here

How are all of these unprofitable companies staying afloat and even making big splashes with media-hyped IPOs?Peter Schiff addressed this question, along with the supposed “failure” of capitalism in his most recent podcast.The rideshare company Lyft had its lowest close since going public yesterday (April 9).

Liberal Democracy and Its Reinventors

Reinventing “liberal democracy” seems a rather popular activity these days. There is a widespread presumption that voters are globally rejecting globalisation and freer markets. Most explanations of the rise of so-called “populism” tend to understand it as a homogeneous phenomenon all through the West, and thus the result of homogenous demands on the part of voters. “Liberal democracy” (or liberalism, or capitalism, all words that in this context are used as a...

The ‘End Of Dreams’ And The Saving Of Appearances

Authord by Alastair Crooke via The Automatic Earth blog, Robert Kagan first called attention to the fact that America would need to awake from its ‘dream’ a decade ago in End of Dreams: The Return of History, and would have to manage the rise of ‘other’ powers, (some greater than others), with adroitness, if it were to avoid a bad road-crash as emerging competitors clashed with the waning dominant power.   This meant that the US no longer would be able to assert its will everywhere, and on...

Ray Dalio: “This Is The Most Important Economic, Political And Social Issue Of Our Time”

Every quarter, the Fed's Flow of Funds report discloses - among many other things - the total U.S. household net worth, and every quarter for the past two years this number has steadily gone up, hitting fresh all time highs with every new release, most recently $96.2 trillion, to widespread cheers from both the financial press and the public, as well as the administration.  However, as we show every quarter, this aggregate number is largely meaningless in providing a status update on the...

The Big Banks Are Coming For Bitcoin

No matter what Jamie Dimon may say, bitcoin’s durability can be expressed by one simple fact: With a market cap of $100 billion, digital currencies have become too big for banks to ignore. As Bloomberg recalls in a story about how banks are preparing to confront the thorny regulatory issues related to dealing in bitcoin and other digital currencies, on the same day Dimon trashed bitcoin, calling it a “fraud,” his firm’s private bank hosted a panel featuring cryptocurrency investors, and even...

Digital-Currency Milestone: Somebody Just Bought A House With Bitcoin

The transaction "illustrates crypto's potential to transform how financial transactions are conducted," according to Futurism.com.

“Bitcoin Jesus” Says Another Network Split Is Coming In November

Since its current world-beating bull run began in late 2015, bitcoin has surmounted a series of pitfalls that were supposed to kill the market.  The list is remarkably long. The DAO hack. The PBOC crackdown. The ICO craze. The SEC’s rejection in March of two proposed bitcoin ETFs. And, most recently, the network split that spawned bitcoin cash. All were supposed to burst the roaring valuation bubble, yet in almost every example, a temporary pullback was followed by another leg higher....
