  • Why The Fed Will Raise Interest Rates This Year [View article]
    One can only hope, but I wouldn't bet on an accelerating economy. There is still too much debt and consumers aren't loading up on more. In a debt based financial system, ever more amount of debt are necessary to propel the economy. We're closer to the end game than the start of robust economic growth.

  • The 'War On Cash' Migrates To Switzerland [View article]
    Good one. Would your comment extend to securities dealers as well? I would not recommend buying gold as an investment. Trade it or hold it and hope you never need it.

    Gold is insurance against central bank foolishness and is the only real money. When TSHTF, best have a healthy supply of long shelf life food, potable water and ammo. By the way, how are your Swiss Franc dividends doing?

  • The 'War On Cash' Migrates To Switzerland [View article]
    The anti gold lobby has convinced many otherwise astute investors that gold, in the words of Lord Keynes is a "barbaric relic." Might Warren Buffett whose wealth is inextricably tied to the fiat kings of Wall Street have an axe to grind? Gold is a threat to financiers because it would enforce discipline upon their profligacy. Better to trade derivatives of derivatives and manipulate gold futures than tie your bets to real money. When the music stops, what will all that paper, oops, cloud based digits be worth?

  • Someone Is Going To Be Very Wrong On The American Consumer [View article]
    I suspect the recovery will be seen as a temporary Keynesian goose when all is said and done. If the recovery is real, the Fed will have to raise rates and that will tank the market. The more likely scenario involves another recession with an impotent Fed going full blown on interest rates and bank deposits. I'm waiting for the Big Reset. Then, pent up demand might bring on a real recovery.

  • Greece Moves In With Public Sector Capital (Cash) Controls [View article]
    Greece can never service its debt. This much is known. What is not known are the consequences of its outright default. They must be potentially significant or this charade would be over by now.

  • Fink And Capitalism: Need 4 Kitchens In Your House? [View article]
    What does the cash horde look like in comparison to debt? Many stock buybacks are being financed with debt in this low interest rate environment. How does it net out? If the best use of corp. cash is stock buybacks at historically high prices, what does that say about the macro picture?

  • Putin Is Strong, The Ruble Is Stronger [View article]
    Anyone considering investing in Russia should first read Red Notice by Bill Browder who ran the first Western hedge run inside Russia. The accounting gimmickry and share dilution scams of the oligarchs are beyond outrageous. At the top of the criminal enterprise is Putin whom Browder describes as the most ruthless gangster in the world and the world's richest person. Not bad for someone who has never held a job in the private sector.
