  • Quantitative Easing: Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid... [View article]
    QE has been an unprecedented experiment in financial asset levitation. Markets have become addicted to ZIRP and could well tank if rates are allowed to rise. The so called recovery has been a boon for fast food employment and other low wage service jobs. The hoped for takeoff in the broader economy has not occurred. The can has been kicked to the end of the road and the piper is awaiting his pay.

    Banks are an almost irresistible attraction for that element of our society which seeks unearned money.

    Hmm. I think I'll sell my gold for dollars and stuff all that paper in my mattress for a rainy day.

  • When Debt Addiction Gets The Best Of Us [View article]
    The United States can pay any debt it has because we can always print money to do that. So there is zero probability of default.
    Alan Greenspan

    Bring it on.

  • Gold Below $700 And Soon... [View article]
    Gold bugs are buying for a future that might not ever come. They are buying insurance against war, famine, pestilence and disease. Most of all they are betting against bankers' ability to levitate fiat currencies.

    If the author is correct, gold bugs will have a field day buying physical.

  • Why The Smart Money Is Beginning To Worry About The Downside [View article]
    The end game is still waiting to play out; long after it became apparent that the debt supercycle was unsustainable. Without central bank intervention, the restart would already have occurred. Now, even mainstream economists are warning of the dangers implicit in kicking the can. When the music stops, and it always does, there will be many pundits who said. "I told you so" - me included. There is only one hitch, when does the fat lady sing? In the meantime, don't be greedy.

  • Dow 20,000; Is It Possible? [View article]
    Central banks can levitate asset prices as long as they can retain investor confidence. Those advocating cash have already lost confidence, but there are many more on the other side of that trade. I don't know where we are in the game and don't really care- I don't know how to time the market. Instead, I diversify and retain cash balances to take advantage of opportunites when I see them. I'll lose money in the inevitable correction and make it back in the next cycle. Over time, I'll take what the market gives me and probably beat 80% of the market timers.

  • Without Debt There'd Be No Money? [View article]
    Credit is a system whereby] a person who can't pay, gets another person who can't pay, to guarantee that he can pay.”

  • Can U.S. Equity Still Deliver If The Fed Hikes? [View article]
    With Europe starting QE, the dollar should continue to rise. A Fed rate hike would cause an even greater strengthening. The U.S. is already importing deflation. A rate hike this year is not in the cards.

    Ben lied. He said he had a helicopter that could drop cash on us homies. I've been waiting and waiting and all I have to show for it is the few hundred bucks I scooped up when the armored car overturned in my hood. Shalom.
