  • Don't Miss the Coming Gold Bull [View article]
    Yes, the government could potentially print money and send gold sky high. We, however, have a legislative system which would strongly frown on such a move. Things would have to get materially worse before popular pressure might allow it. This is why I feel that hyper-inflation, although a possibility in the distant future, will not occur soon. It probably would be a real miracle if we would transition from the current deflationary environment to a nice 1-2% inflation scenario.

  • Can Deflation Be Avoided? [View article]
    We seem to be in a period of relative stability with markets calming down, even rising. Does the market anticipate things getting better? Are government bailouts working or just delaying the inevitable. I don't see the current low price of gasoline triggering a rush to buy SUVs, but It has to increase sales somewhat plus make other commerce more affordable. Time will tell. I'm cautiously optimistic.

  • Chart of the Week: Gold [View article]
    The current deflationary environment will tend to drive gold down. However, both the India-Pakistan and Israeli-Palistinian conflict are wild cards with the potential to spike gold prices.

  • I like the one about Bush and the Lehman brothers best! Just what was Bush's grade in his economic courses (if he took any).
