  • Foreclosure Fraud Fallout [View article]

    You seem to be one of the few people who actually calls this mess as it is, without the blind optimism of MSM types, or the euphemistic sugarcoating that has become all too regular today. Keep fighting the good fight, love your articles. I am looking forward to Part II of your hyperinflation piece.

    VD -- Kudos to you, I think you deserve some respect on this case given your track record. Full disclosure, I've been a holder of HK for the past 1.5 years and have watched this all play out. Though it causes me great cognitive dissonance, I admit I have read all your articles but never acted on your advice. This has been a mistake.

    Though like your other writings on HK, there will likely be detractors, hysterical and otherwise. However I, for one, have come to respect your analysis greatly.

    Thanks for your always even-handed assessments; they are always appreciated.

  • Printing money makes sense, Dean Baker argues; the Fed has the means and the responsibility to America's 15M unemployed to pump cash into the economy and control inflation later. But the Fed's "trillion dollar deficits don't matter" philosophy brings economic ruin ever closer, David Stockman counters.  [View news story]
    Baker writes:

    "In our demand-constrained economy, however, there is no problem of inflation. The economy can produce more of almost anything right now. The reason that we are not doing it is simply the lack of demand."

    I don't see how this validates his point. Firstly, "no problem of inflation" is both temporal and relative, that is, it depends on whose stats you follow. Secondly, if anything, this confirms that the lack of a massive debt-fueled binge exposes the gross overcapacity in our economy. And his theoretical solution to this is to hand out $2trn of counterfeit bills?

    What about confiscation of wealth? Dilution of savings? Further currency devaluation? Hot money flows to emerging economies? And how exactly do we make that magic $2trn "disappear"? How do we know when the time is right? Oh yes, that's right, when it's far too late to pull ourselves out of the abyss.

  • It's Time To Unravel SPDR Gold Trust Positions On Crimea [View article]
    "I see little reason for the GLD to gain further from here."

    I'd wager the taper efforts have more to do with gold's recent trend than Crimea ever did.

    I think you emphasize singular and misplaced correlation in this article.
