  • Krugman, Bowman And The Monetary Financing Of Governments [View article]
    Frances - you set up a straw man with the idea that governments need to print money to pay everyone. How does your model change if central banks only print the money to fund the government? In such a case, the printing is a tax on wealth holders proportionate to their wealth. High wealth holders get hurt more than someone who doesn't have any. It can be argued whether this is a good or bad thing.

  • Gold Investors Should Diversify And Think Income [View article]
    Dear author.....do you have any stats on how many gold investors you think may have even 50% to 100% of their net worth allocated to paper or physical gold? I haven't been able to come up with any kind of numbers?

  • Bottom In Gold Likely To Be Below $770 [View article]
    Based on my methodology, the new low will now not be below $938 (the number of comments on this article). And, IMHO, the only time it will approach that is when the DOW drops 5000 points in a short period of time and everyone heads for liquidity.

    Markos....it's days later and where has the gold selling showed up to demonstrate a cycle back into stocks? You said flow OUT OF GOLD and into stocks. I don't see any evidence of it.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Repsol To Buy Talisman Energy For $13B [View article]
    Bob123 - thanks for the typical liberal response. First, I think Bush family are elite morons....only reason they are there is because papa was in charge of CIA and has the goods on everyone. Second, Jr. is not my hero. Third, I wouldn't give Jebby - one with no experience and not a conservative anyway -- the time of day. It's hopeless with some - who can't read and willingly infer whatever their ideological paradigm impresses onto their conversation.

    The company I work for will export to China ~ $1.5 - 1.8 billion in Beef, Poultry and Pork in the next 12 months. Mainly beef from South America and Canada. Pork from South America and some EU.

    Interestingly, they buy almost every part of the animal you can imagine.

    "But if history is to be our guide, then stocks should draw capital back from gold from today forward and certainly this week, and gold could get crushed. That means the SPDR Gold Trust ETF could quickly retest its former lows near $109"

    And the reason that stocks should draw capital back is what again?

    I have a hard time imagining that GDP will suffer with falling oil prices in USA. Seems that lower oil/gas prices just leave more $ in people's pockets who actually need to spend that money on things just to survive.

    I am beginning to think that pretty soon the entire world (with exception of USD) will soon be turning to Gold to protect their wealth from the likes of Russia's 100% change in currency and 17% plus interest rates. Why hold rubles now. I wonder if they will be sticking them back into that Bank in Greece (or where was it). Seems like if I had a billion worth of rubles, I would be looking to gold held somewhere outside Russia. Then there is Venezuela? Rich guys in China gotta be looking at a reversal in the RMB and potential hurt that it will bring.

    I am beginning to wonder if the entire world (without the USD) will soon be turning to Gold in order to protect themselves from the effects of lower oil prices. Russia ruble is an example. All of a sudden, you have to have 2x as many to buy anything outside Russia. On the other hand....Russian expats, can now get a deal on a cheap house in Russia. What will happen to Venezuela? How many other countries are hurting with low oil prices?
