  • The Message Of Gold Versus Inflation Indexed Bonds: A Conflict [View article]
    Yes, though I thought I would just look at this year from the recent down/up thing in the stock market. Good point on your part; it removes the "conundrum" and suggest inflation will kick in as the recovery proceeds. I am glad ya like my tripwires, if that is what ya meant by constant vigilance.

    The CPI numbers are perfectly ok. Stop drinking your Shadowstats cool aid.

    Could be. If gold prices are rising not from INFLATION fears but international turmoil, then the premise of my article doesn't hit the correct issue.

    Well if ya are gonna be a phony, one best be a consummate one, correct? To be honest, IG, a lot of the article IS saying I am confused. Last year really did see consistency..now the voices are much more mixed. I just ventured a guess as to how things might resolve themselves.

  • Why The Fed Won't Save You From The Next Bear Market [View article]
    It never was, is, or SHOULD BE the FEDs job to 'save us from a bear market.' The FEDs job is to clear checks, facilitate interbank loans, and act as the lender of last resort. Period.

  • The Good News Keeps On Coming [View article]
    Hah...at last a comment which relates to REAL WEALTH! Hahahahahah. Yes I have. From Alaska to southern Chile (not Tierra del Fuego, I got delayed with surgery a local cancerous lesion on my lip, and it was already late April in the southern autumn); then from Portugal, across Europe, the Middle East, to Korea.

    I hope to do a second world tour sometime later this decade. Till then I am turning into a (sixty year old) snowboarding DUDE.

  • Week Ahead: Ignore This Warning At Your Own Peril [View article]
    "Will the West just sit back and watch?"

    Sure. As Pat Buchanan summarized it:

    "When Red Army tank divisions crushed the Hungarian freedom fighters in 1956, killing 50,000, Eisenhower did not lift a finger. When Khrushchev built the Berlin Wall, JFK went to Berlin and gave a speech.

    When Warsaw Pact troops crushed the Prague Spring in 1968, LBJ did nothing. When, Moscow ordered Gen. Wojciech Jaruzelski to smash Solidarity, Ronald Reagan refused to put Warsaw in default.

    These presidents saw no vital U.S. interest imperiled in these Soviet actions, however brutal. They sensed that time was on our side in the Cold War. And history has proven them right."

  • Buy Freedom, Not China [View article]
    Don't worry Mr. Myrmo. Krugperson soon will have an article out which suggests the North Korean economy is great because they have a lot of leisure time (no one is working) and they have a very small carbon footprint (no one uses electricity). Such is the state of our pathetic government funded social science research these days.

  • The 'Bad Weather' Excuse Is Not Valid - The Economy Is Tanking [View article]
    Thanks for a nice article with a well defended bearish scenario (no pretty pictures of 2014 vs 1929 for you!) and a tradeable/actionable scenario which results from that. Do you have a stop loss on your RTH in the event the trade goes against us?

  • Ukrainian 1-Day Bear Market: Hope You Enjoyed It [View article]
    Thanks, AD. As I said, you know if the market fell there would be NO END to the "great foresight" of the ones who produced a silly chart, no doubt in a McCafe with public internet access.

    Does anyone out there see partition (into East Ukraine/Crimea, and West Ukraine) as a solution?

  • Ukrainian 1-Day Bear Market: Hope You Enjoyed It [View article]
    Yes I believe it was a universal belief, just as many bears believe the unemployment rate REALLY is some God awful 30% or whatever, and believe the inflation rate is really 20% annually, or whatever.

    **IF** the market had collapsed, these guys would have been all over the news touting their incredible foresight. Instead they dropped it faster than Obama drops his deadlines. Looking for a new hobbyhorse, they found it in Ukraine.

    And snarky "bears are stupid" articles are exactly what they deserve when they insult our intelligence with one-off graphs comparing 2014 to 1929 with the axes distorted and countless other silliness.

    "Anyone who thinks this stops at Ukraine hasn't really thought this through."

    Well it is the La-LA land Francis Fukuyama Left that thought history ended when the Berlin Wall fell.

    The rest of your letter is useful and informative speculation.

    Well then I suggest your broaden your reading. This is the most hated bull market in history:
    (1) hated by the right who are afraid Obama will claim credit for the economic and stock market recovery;
    (2) hated by the left who see us leaving European and Asian socialist rat holes in the dust as our economy expands.
