Those of us in the investment business who advocate individual gold ownership are often accused of being unpatriotic. In part, this charge stems from the dire economic forecasts that often form the basis for such recommendations in the first place. However, our critics often confuse the recognition of a problem and the belief that its inevitable resolution will be painful, with an actual preference for such an outcome in the first place.

In the International Speculator, we’ve often mentioned the inevitable move by central banks to diversify their reserves out of the U.S. dollar. We’ve noted that, apart from the current situation, there is no precedent for any non-redeemable paper currency being held as the primary reserve of the world’s central banks. That diversification out of the dollar, with a lot going into gold, has begun. A regime change is afoot—though few have yet recognized it. Full Story

Last Sunday evening, being bored out of my mind, I began analyzing the stock and index recommendations of each of the 9 newsletters I subscribe to - ones you would recognize as the biggest, the best and the most respected in the industry – for an insight into their opinions and current analyses of where the markets are and where they are going although not necessarily for their stock recommendations. I had a ‘gut’ feeling which one’s had recommended what but was totally surprised by what I discovered. Full Story

And what can we say about the gold price?

Gold battles on and on and refuses to just quietly subside and shrink back into the shadows. I still believe we will see a 700 floor price by the end of the year and as we head into 2007. Full Story

The basic error underlying the Quantity Theory of Money (QTM) is the notion that central banks can command their newly created money to flow to the commodity market, or any other market of their choice. This is the pipe-dream of the Sorcerer's Apprentice. In reality, once the newly created money is off the premises it is no longer under central bank control. It has become a plaything in the hands of speculators. Far from being guided by the wishful thinking of central bankers, speculators follow their own agenda. Full Story

When Mr. Bush went to war, he put little thought into financing it, which signifies fiscal irresponsibility. Under the framers’ design, he is supposed to go to Congress to ask for the money, all the money, and if Congress doesn’t have it, the war can’t go on unless taxes are raised or private investors are willing to front the money by buying debt.

Some observers saw the five-day downtrend in oil prices as a sign that the Middle East war is unlikely to spin out of control. But then, maybe oil traders are proving to be just as nutty as American consumers, able to find a silver lining even in a mushroom cloud? We see the war winding down over the next couple of weeks, more on Israel’s terms than Hezbollah’s. But when it ceases to distract and investors focus anew on the thunderheads gathering on the economic horizon, better look out below! Full Story

They say people shrink as age increases. What I didn’t realise was that it also applies to gold and silver stock portfolios. Having seen my Western Silver shares swallowed up by Glamis Gold earlier this year, I now see another member of my portfolio, Novagold, ripe for disappearing from the gold mining world. Full Story

There’s no blaming Helicopter Ben for yesterday’s outbreak of irrational exuberance, but if not him, who? For perspective, recall the prediction made here in late May – that it would be a do-nothing summer for the stock market, with the Dow Industrials fluctuating meaninglessly between 10600 and 11200 until after Labor Day. If you look at the chart below you’ll see that that’s pretty close to what has happened so far: Full Story

Show Highlights:

Paul Van Eeden is expecting four digit gold prices. Paul thinks that the currency crisis's of the 1990's are the primary driver for the domestic economic dilemma. Next, Paul explains how the Former M3 statistic can be easily calculated. In fact, he directs us to the Fed.'s website and provides a simple technique to estimate the current M3. Paul explains why the Fed. has its back against the wall. He insists they must either raise interest rates to encourage Asian bond purchases or monetize the debt - buying treasuries from the government to continue financing the domestic debt albatross. Paul tells the listeners how to follow buying his portfolio as well as calculate gold's true value.

Bob Chapman and I discuss the latest batch of economic statistics to determine what it all means for the typical American household. Bob believes the summer doldrums in precious metals will pass and then launch gold and silver to record high points in the next leg higher of the precious metals bull market. Listen close for Bob's latest gold and silver price predictions. Then Jack Chan and I look at the stock charts to decipher what the markets are telling us. Jack called the top in crude oil last week with his $80 per barrel alert, he remains bearish on stocks and expects a four year cycle bottom in the weeks ahead. Full Story

-Yipee! Another Internet bubble?!...investors are like voters - they can never remember more than four years back...and more! Full Story

By: Bob Chapman, The International Forecaster - 24 July, 2006

Don’t listen to what passes for the truth today from our media, Wall Street, government, the banks and corporate America. It is all intellectual garbage. During the 1970’s interest rates climbed relentlessly higher, culminating in rates of 20.5%, as the US 30-year Treasury bond yielded 13.5%. This was accompanied by rising commodity and gold and silver prices. Those who tell you that these investments won’t appreciate are either stupid or liars. The result is all there. All you have to do is go back and study what happened in the 70s. We know – we lived it minute by minute. Full Story

This week I write from Grand Lake Stream in Maine. It has been a long time since I have taken a week off from writing, but I think this is the week to do it. But that means, gentle reader, that you get an upgrade in quality, as my friends (thanks, Louis!) at GaveKal have graciously permitted me to use one of their most recent newsletters, where they talk about the recent inflation numbers, survey the markets in Japan and discuss Chinese growth and taxes.

The stock market would be collapsing right now were it not for short-squeezes triggered by our intermittently dovish Fed chairman. However, it should be painfully clear after last week’s histrionics that each successive goosing of share prices is attracting fewer suckers. Indeed, when the Dow Industrials surged 212 points last Wednesday, inspired by Helicopter Ben’s most recent, timid effusions, who other than a CNBC pundit could possible have believed the rally would be the start of something big?
