A Return to the Gold Standard Has Major Shortcomings – Here’s Why

gold2

World Bank president Robert Zoellick has stirred up a hornet's nest with his recent call for a return to a gold anchor in the global financial system. The usual suspects immediately denounced him - Keynesian Brad DeLong has [gone so far as to] anoint Zoellick the "Stupidest Man Alive" - [and I would like to add my voice to the chorus by explaining] the dangers of Zoellick's gold proposal, and why fans of the classical gold standard should be wary.

Inflation and the Price of Gold are Progressing According to Plan

Inflation_Deflation2

Inflationary periods are highly unjust. They undermine the ethics of hard work and thrift. They destroy solidarity, lead to widespread hardship and often to social unrest. Gold, in contrast, has been the best hedge as investors seek to protect themselves against the large purchasing power losses of inflated currencies.

Beware: Official U.S. Government Price for Gold is Only $42.22/oz.

gold

The United States has seen four different gold confiscations — the last of which was in 1933. Few people realize that when the freedom to own gold was restored in 1972, the President retained the power to require us to surrender our gold which he can do again any time (probably on a Friday) with the mere stroke of a pen. That means all confiscated gold could possibly be compensated at only $42.22 per 1oz. and not at the world market price. Don’t take this decision lightly. It was another blatant warning that the government may be contemplating grand larceny — AGAIN. Words: 1740

No Fewer Than FIVE Ominous, Vicious Cycles Await Us

Economic-Cycle

Neither the White House nor the CBO have adequately considered the real impact of the very deficits they themselves are projecting. While they admit the deficits will be off the charts they fail to connect the dots from that admission to its obvious natural consequences — no fewer than FIVE ominous, vicious cycles.

Coming Currency Debasement Good for Gold

golden-dollar1

When I look strictly at what’s actually going on in the world, I have to think that gold will go to at least $2,000 in this cycle and there are very credible scenarios in which it could go to a multiple of that number. Why am I so bullish for the yellow metal? Let me tell you why. Words: 469

How to Protect Your Portfolio From Inflation

inflation

Inflation lurks in the shadows. It destroys value by gradually eroding real returns over time. It is financial death by a thousand cuts. Investors too often look at "the numbers" in their portfolio without asking what those numbers can actually buy over time. It's a classic mistake that John Maynard Keynes termed "money illusion."

If Trump Truly Wants To Fix the Economy He Should Shut Down the Federal Reserve – Here’s Why

dollar purchasing power

An unelected, unaccountable group of central bankers has far more power over our economy than anyone else does but, with the election of Donald Trump as President, we now have an opportunity to get free from this insidious system because, if he truly wants to fix the economy then shutting down the Federal Reserve would be the thing to do. It would take someone very bold to make such a move so it begs the question, "Is he up to the task?"

Central Bank Bubble Will Burst and Result In A Recession & Bear Market

dollar bubbles

The unwinding of the "Central Bank Bubble" will be worse than either the Dot.Com Bubble or the Housing Bubble. It seems like most investors continue to show apathy even with the warnings by us and quite a few others of the "unintended consequences" of the central banks doing things that have never been done before. Those investors are in good company because it appears to us that the leaders of the major central banks of the world do not have any idea of the "unintended consequences" either.
