Thought for the Day

Reality is beginning to show through the cracks in our current way of life. Standard statistical economic information is becoming more akin to propaganda.

Unemployment figures do not include two sets of "jobless" categories. The CPI figures are worked out on a continually shifting base which produces lower answers. This CPI is called "inflation", but the REAL inflation is in the money supply which has been expanding at 8% compounded for 20 years. Now it is declining at a rate of around 3.8% and we are starting to experience deflation even while the economists are still forecasting 2% or 3% growth. We are now pursuing GDP growth like it was REAL Wealth.

We are lost in a sea of misinformation.

Thoughts on the Greater Depression

The advantage of reading the Austrian economists is that one begins to understand REAL Economics.

The advantage of understanding REAL Economics is that one understands how the REAL World works and one can take advantage of this knowledge.

Doug Casey is one person who understands the REAL World and his investment advice is based on this knowledge. His story has not changed since I started subscribing to his newsletter advice about 5 years ago.

You should find this very interesting.

Europe's austerity anger grows

For those of you who still think that paper money controlled by Central Banks is the answer - Have a look at this result.

The World Monetary Earthquake, The Dash From Cash

“Within a single week 25 nations have deliberately slashed the values of their currencies. Nothing quite comparable with this has ever happened before in the history of the world. This world monetary earthquake will carry many lessons.”

Ben Davies; CEO of Hinde Capital

As I said, by continually propping up economies in trouble, the world's Central Bankers have now got their economies in "synch". All going down the tubes together!

Bernanke Stops Making Sense

The people at the top are floundering. Can all this be really happening? What will be the end result? When will it happen?

Perhaps sooner than we think!

The Global Politics of Gold

The leaders of the nations of the world are in competition with each other as each seeks to keep control over their own bailiwick. They must cooperate to achieve this but each leader of the biggest nations seeks to be "top dog".

Interesting times.

Savers Told to Stop Moaning and Start Spending

Britain is morphing into La-la Land. Bankers saying, "Stop saving and start spending and save the country - to pensioners!"

The world of paper money has really gone topsy turvy.

Time to shift back to REAL Money, eh!

Shut Down the Fed (Part II)

Ambrose is starting to see things my way. Perhaps he should read Human Action. He will then realise that there is no way out for the USA.

Either a long deflationary period back to sustainable levels or a hyper-inflationary boom and complete bust.

Political pressures will ensure that the get the hyper-boom!

Gold is Last Refuge Against Universal Currency Debasement

As I have pointed out before the Central Bankers of the world have now managed to get their boom/bust cycles in synch. As they each supported each other on the way up the boom and worked together to stop the bust they now arrive at the moment of truth.

The whole world is now in jeopardy of the biggest paper money blow-up in history.

The big question for us is how can New Zealand cope in this environment? I do not have any answers except to say that what is inevitable will happen. Not very encouraging I'm afraid.

Remobilize Gold to Save the World Economy

Volcker brought sense back to the financial world when he raised interest rates back in 1980 to rein in rampant inflation in America. Remember when interest rates went up to twenty something per cent? And that was a mortgage!

It is now too late to rescue the paper money system created and led by the United States - one way or another the world will drop back to gold.

Is it possible to do this the easy way?

Gold at $1,300, Where to From Here?

Unfortunately we live in a sort of economic La-la Land. This is caused by using paper as money on a world wide basis and applying mathematics to imagined economic curves. The Maths may be fine but if the functions are not a realistic model of the economy then the results are for an imaginary world - La-la Land. Our paper money has no agreed or fixed value and is constantly changing in price at the whims of currency dealers.

Whether we like it or not we actually do live in a REAL World and REALITY is intruding on our La-la dreams.

We will learn about REAL Assets and REAL Money and REAL Economics over the next few years.

This interview shows what must happen.

Quote for the Week

"... as all history informs us, there has been in every State & Kingdom a constant kind of warfare between the governing & governed: the one striving to obtain more for its support, and the other to pay less. And this has alone occasioned great convulsions, actual civil wars, ending either in dethroning of the Princes, or enslaving of the people.

Generally indeed the ruling power carries its point, the revenues of princes constantly increasing, and we see that they are never satisfied, but always in want of more.

The more the people are discontented with the oppression of taxes; the greater need the prince has of money to distribute among his partisans and pay the troops that are to suppress all resistance, and enable him to plunder at pleasure.

There is scarce a king in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh, get first all the peoples money, then all their lands, and then make them and their children servants for ever".

Benjamin Franklin
