  • The U.S. will need about $4T in savings to get the deficit back to a sustainable level over the next decade, says Treasury Secretary Tim Geitner. However, to get there, we need to focus first and foremost on strengthening the economy over the short term, Geitner says. Despite the fiscal challenges, we simply can't "cut our way to growth."  [View news story]

  • Gold And Silver Prices Have Further To Fall [View article]
    The fraud govt reports cpi avg for 2011 at 3.2%.
    How do u come up with 2.5%?

    Like you do not want to count Intra-governmental debt of $4.7 trillion.

    Ponzi accounting.

    You would make a good prospect for the NAR, Chief number cruncher. Although they do not need much help now.

  • Gold And Silver Prices Have Further To Fall [View article]
    Lack of inflation. You are an idiot.

    Gasoline
    Healthcare premiums
    Food
    Education

    Car Repair - Go get a few simple maintenance items.
    Restuarants- family of 4 $15-20 a pop, 1 drink each a tip and tax $80-100.

    Incomes are not keeping up. When Food, Gasoline and Utilities chew up a much bigger portion of disposable incomes the public anger is going to erupt.

    according to the world gold council the global demand for etfs has been falling off since 2008 and accelerating downward while and the demand for physical gold/silver has increased markedly.

  • Roger Lowenstein pens an epic love letter to Ben Bernanke in The Atlantic. "The left hates him. The right hates him even more. But Ben Bernanke saved the economy - and has navigated masterfully through the most trying of times." Whatever one's opinion of the man thankfully not yet being called "The Maestro," stuff like this tends to come a lot closer to market tops than bottoms.  [View news story]
    Look at any industry the freaken corrupt govt is involved in: Housing, Education Healthcare and Finance.

    Propped up asset prices and ridiculous price adjustments yearly.

    so why the F$%# would u be babbling about lowest servicing costs?

    It only gets worse from here in terms of servicing costs. The Imbecile brainless consumer is piling on debts again and the govt just can't stop themsleves.

    TotAL DEBTS TO GDP HAS GONE UP 363%...REFLATE! More debt piled on.

    Rates are at artificial levels. when reality comes back ,Free Markets, then the party ends.

  • It's Time To Buy Medtronic [View article]
    This is no different than many of the consumer brand stocks like ko axp msft wmt pep pg jnj having 30-40 p/e's and now trading down since they were way overvalued plus larger cos cannot grow at the same pace.
    No diffeent than the stock market at something like 30-35 times earnings 1999 and today 15.
    It is easy to gather the quantitative numbers on cos but the qualitative aspect is much harder to piece together

    <<Household debt service plus government debt service to GDP is at
    a 30 year low>>

    As long as interest rates stay at historic record lows. Sounds like a TOP in interest rates to me or should i say bond prices
    Bro buy buy buy 10 and 30 year treasuries.

    Will have a few more treasuries to sell to "the Bernank" the budget deficit projection was increased recently.

    titan thanks for the heads up on the article. Probably time to get into nat gas when you start seeing bankruptcies and ng breaks under $2.

    The cng filling stations should have a nationwide foot print by end of 2013. Many long haul truckers UPS FedEx will be swithching over imo.

  • Precious metals continue a decline that picked up steam when the positive results of the Fed stress tests began to leak out. It's hard to imagine QE3 coming about if the Fed believes a depression could hit and banks would still be solid enough to return capital to investors. Gold -2.1% to $1,659. Silver -1.1% to $33.19.  [View news story]
