  • China's Grand Economic Strategy [View article]
    This coming October the IMF meets and will discuss reserve currency status. There are presently 9 countries with reserve currency status and China wants to the 10th or maybe a lower number if countries loose this status. The last time the IMF discussed China's acceptance as a reserve currency was in 2010 and they did not meet all of the requirements, or so I have read. I have also read that now 5 years later they meet all of the requirements. Reserve currency status is very important to China as it is very important to America. If China succeeds, it will require many more banks to purchase and hold renmimbi.

    By some measures, China is the #1 economy in the world today.

  • Risk Turns Risky: Unpleasant Skew, Scale Dilation, And Broken Lines [View article]

    Using "weirdo" is not really applicable. Banks hold large quantities of gold of silver. What they don't hold is large quantities of cash. If people wanted to hold cash based on their electronic bank balances there would be a very big problem. There would be restrictions just like in Greece.

  • The One Factor To Explain Them All [View article]
    There is another way of stating this. Humans are not very good at predicting the future actions of other humans, whatever labels are used. I certainly vote for dog owners over cat owners.

  • Gold Wont Go Much Lower [View article]
    Gold is Tier 1 capital in the banking system. That is how the banking system and regulators consider gold.

  • The Warren Buffett Economy - Why Its Days Are Numbered (Part 2) [View article]
    Looking backwards and stating a possible reason for this and that is not at all helpful. What is needed is a clear understanding of where we are headed and what it means for us without the wealth of Buffett.

    BTW a price inflation at a reasonable level is needed for any growing and healthy economy.

  • The Warren Buffett Economy - Why Its Days Are Numbered [View article]
    We all know that the US has been running bubble economics for some time and the degree to which the world has joined the game has changed with time, although Japan was there first. It isn't just equities that matter but also the mountainous debt (liabilities). On the next bubble crash very few will realize the high prices in the current equity market. The majority will end up with less than their present paper value, as they always do. They will not be happy. Debt will not be paid back, as always. More people will be unhappy.

    The central banks have no solution for this coming situation because the debt (liabilities) amounts are too large.

  • How Warren Buffett's Misunderstanding Of QE Left Billions On The Table [View article]
    I agree. It's far from over. Financial engineering has built a house of cards but this started well before 2007/8. Human beings are not good at predicting the future. Human beings are not good at steering complex systems. The financial engineering is now global while countries still operate on the basis that they can somehow overcome and survive the house of cards that financial engineering continues to develop.
