Marc Faber points out the financial system, the Federal Reserve and other Central Banks in the world are being run by academics, most of who haven't worked outside of academia for their entire lives, that interest rates have never been lower in 5000 years and that this unprecedented monetary experiment will one day react negatively.

How Would Markets React If Trump Was Actually Forced Out of Office?

17-trump-impeachment-odds.w710.h473Donald Trump’s political agenda – and his very presidency – are in jeopardy...

...at least if you believe the chatter on cable television.

Yes, for weeks now, the big media outlets have been stirring up talk of impeachment. One narrative after another – Russia, Comey, Kushner, etc. – yet no conclusive evidence of any “high crimes and misdemeanors.”

Still, Democrats in Congress smell blood in the water… and they have readied articles of impeachment for introduction as soon as an opportunity presents.

But investors don’t seem particularly concerned about the implications of political turmoil intensifying in Washington.

The stock market keeps edging higher with minimal volatility.

Why Bad Economic Theories Remain Popular

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter

Posted by Steven Saville - The Speculative Investor

on Friday, 26 May 2017 07:46

EconomicCartoonLudwig von Mises and Friedrich Hayek, the most prominent “Austrian” economists of the time, anticipated the 1929 stock market crash and correctly predicted the dire consequences of government attempts to artificially stimulate economic growth in the aftermath of the crash. John Maynard Keynes, on the other hand, was totally blindsided by the stock market crash and the economic disaster of the early 1930s. And yet, Keynes’s theories gained enormous popularity during the 1930s whereas the work of Mises and Hayek was largely ignored. Why was it so?

Keynes became popular because he told the politically powerful what they wanted to hear. In particular, he provided power-hungry politicians with intellectual support for the schemes they not only already had in mind, but in many cases were already putting into practice. Despite being riddled with errors, Keynes’ theories also appealed to many economists because the implementation of these theories would confer a lot more influence upon the economics fraternity. The fact is that in a free economy there wouldn’t be much for an economist to do other than teach economics. He/she would certainly never have the opportunity to be involved in the ‘management’ of the economy.

Mile Markers on the Road to Ruin

Posted by Gary Christenson - The Deviant Investor

We know much is currently wrong with our financial world, as discussed in the James Rickards book “The Road to Ruin” and elsewhere.

 

  • The official U.S. government debt is nearly $20 trillion. Unfunded liabilities are 5 – 10 times larger. Debt has doubled every 8 – 9 years for decades – since the Federal Reserve was put in charge of devaluing the dollar. Debt will continue to grow, obviously out of control.
  • Millions of Americans are out of work, regardless of the official statistics.
  • Prices increase, some rapidly, regardless of the official statistics on consumer price inflation.
  • More government spending and debt are looming on the horizon. New and escalating wars are likely. Expect more deficits, debt, and inflation.
  • The U.S. stock market is selling at all-time highs, levitated by “easy money” and unsupported by fundamentals or breadth.

 

Option A: 

Trust the professionals who manage our digital and paper wealth which is backed only by debt, promises, fantasy, and confidence in the Federal Reserve and government. Believe official statistics and mainstream media that tell us things are peachy and not to worry.

Option B: 

Use gold and silver bullion (not the paper stuff) as financial insurance to protect the buying power of some or most of our net worth. Based on a century of experience, we can depend upon central banks and global governments to devalue currencies, create more debt, and propel gold and silver prices far higher.

Really? Those options seem extreme. Why? Read on!
