  • Prepare To Short Gold [View article]
    Captain, marvelous narrative! Your gold will buy the same vehicle with the same amount of coins; whereas your script will require a four fold amount. A very plain example over the past decade how gold has kept consumers out of poverty!

    BTW, could you tell us which draw holds your treasure chest ?

  • Prepare To Short Gold [View article]
    A trading range of 1710 to 1240 or a loss of almost 33% makes for an interesting novel of some sort...

    There are many factors that are driving PMs higher (not a single down year for Au since 2001) but we feel the primary reason is the irresponsibility of governments worldwide.

    This comes in the form of exploding debt which will impact standard of living, as well as the local script, rendering people to poverty.

    Those with foresight and wisdom, will seek assets which will provide some form of stability and or protection against eroding currencies; hard assets which can not be readily destroyed or manipulated...

    Until we see a devolvement of smaller and responsible forms of national governments, investors shall continue to seek the shelter of gold and silver...

    After all, the metals come from the earth and labor and have some value...National governments - paper and air, which is why they come and go...

  • Schlumberger Outlines Future Roadmap To Gasfrac [View article]
    Schlumberger Chief Executive Paul Kibsgaard, said this process will lead to lower costs! Really!

    My understanding is, that EnviroFrac's cost to do a well is at least 50% more than the typical Hydro-fracking.

    The cost of water is anywhere between 10 to 15 cents per gallon (delivered) wherein propane is at 90 cents per gallon...

  • Household net worth rose $1.7T to $64.8T in Q3, according the Fed's Flow of Funds report (if you like data dumps, this one is for you). Domestic nonfinancial debt grew 2.4% in Q3, with households continuing to deleverage, but businesses (+4.4%) and the federal government (+6.2%) picking up the slack. From 2002-2006, households added to debt levels at double-digit rates. [View news story]

    Z, as an engineer I defer to your judgement, however, his assessment of previous EVs history is correct...

    Perhaps, Musk and Telsa will prove him wrong...

    More lies from the Central Bank...Most of this so called decline, come from past and future foreclosures and bankruptcies...

    These households will not partake in the market place for years to come...

    And what is advancing today's economy it sure is not income growth...

  • After voters approved tax hikes for the rich in the recent election, California’s Legislative Analyst’s Office is forecasting that the state will enjoy a surplus of $1B by FY 2014-2015. Critics says the increases will lead to an exodus of residents, businesses and jobs, although Governor Jerry Brown's office points to a report which says that the link between tax policies and migration are untrue. [View news story]

  • 3 Key Metrics That Show Why We Can't Avoid Recession [View article]
    The prominent discussion of the government's involvement in Fed activity and the economy, only serves to stress its importance.

    This is a constant theme by, Mr Roche and the MMTers and the JMK crowd...This is their Holy Grail; in other words society can not function without a Central government..

    This leaves a distaste in my mouth, as nothing can be achieved without the influence or meddling of these governmental units...

    From their perspective, if the government component is removed from the economic model, the entire system will fail...

    You are welcome, Mr Johnson. They are excellent in determining mineral risks around the world. I would take exception, however, with all and any investment in Socialist Quebec.
