  • The Risk Of Runaway U.S. Inflation With A Fed In Handcuffs [View article]
    2.3% inflation with 1.5% real growth is not stagflation

    Correct. Who says we have either of those? Those numbers are not even close.

    You should write me a substantially long reply about how the government calculates those figures. Then delete it because it's worthless.

    They will never admit defeat just like they will never admit we are in a depression just like they will never admit that the fed's real purpose is to transfer wealth directly to the banks from everyone else. That's why it did not "work". It was never meant to help anyone else.

    Anyone else wonder why Goldman/JPM need warehouses of metals, tankers offshore full of oil, and now they own tons of real estate and will be the biggest landlords?

    Please use correct terminology. For banks it's called "Mark to unicorn". For everyone else it's mark to market.

    They already have. We have been over the debt limit for 70 days. They just don't update it.

    Don't worry it's cool though they have a trillion dollar coin at the ready, if need be.

    Nah we have not reached absurd yet.

    Crude oil is back above $106 and the 10yr is itching to break 3% soon. Throw in NO growth despite whatever rigged calculations are used and you have stagflation.

    All you are left with is the fed swearing they will keep serving after closing time but even the town drunk is passed out on the floor and can't handle any more.

    It's all over but the crying.

    to do one thing. Print money. I never underestimate their power to do that.

    I think I am the one who brought stagflation to the table here by the way.

    just like MFG and Lehman were in great shape right up till they went bust. What do you expect them to say?

    Subprime was tiny and contained. For a bit.

    No growth with high energy costs and rising interest rates. That is what is coming. Hedge accordingly.

    The fed is impotent. The bond market is in the process of realizing that now.

    it seems like the path of least resistance for interest rates right now is up. If that continues and growth continues to be a dud, it will be stagflation that sets in (already is). That should do wonders for gold.

    Here is the big question. If stagflation sets in, what can the fed do about it? There will be no "Volker moment" with 17 trillion in debt and climbing.

    we should print more money and bail out these municipalities. The best way to do this is to print the money and give it to the banks and hope they somehow filter it down to the municipalities. I'm sure they will.

  • GLD Vs. PALL: Gold Continues To Underperform [View article]
    Kellie how do you value dollars which are diluted by 85 billion every month?

    How should some poor sap feel that busts his/her butt every day for 50k only to watch food/gas/tuition/healt... etc. etc. prices rise every day around them because their government prints dollars to paper over everything. Maybe those people should look to other countries in India and parts of Asia etc. and see what they do to protect against that....hint.....buy gold, and not so they have something to stare at....
