It would be more comforting if the Bank for International Settlements, the International Monetary Fund or the Federal Reserve Bank of New York had a better handle on all this. Who really knows how many purchases of Shanghai properties, Google Inc. shares, Zambian treasury bills, bars of gold or derivatives are related to yen borrowings? Full Story

In today’s style over substance economy, the job of Treasury Secretary has devolved into a pitch man for the government’s economic disinformation campaign. To qualify, an aspiring Secretary must have the credibility and rhetorical skill to simultaneously instill enough confidence in America’s creditors for them to keep lending, and in American consumers, to encourage them to keep borrowing and spending. It should be obvious to all that the very idea that the U.S. economy needs a spokesman indicates just how weak it really is. If our economy really were sound, it would speak for itself. It would not need a professional promoter to talk it up. Full Story

Together we have compiled a remarkable summary of the ominous warnings, dire predictions and perceived devastating consequences that the vast majority of economists, financial analysts, economic research firms and financial commentators are saying about our current economic situation and what is most likely to unfold in the months and years ahead. It is a must read to more clearly understand and appreciate the financial state of the union, the impact it will likely have on various investments, and how better to allocate ones assets.

By: Rick Ackerman, Rick's Picks - 1 June, 2006

The Rick’s Picks switchboard lit up like a string of Black Cats yesterday as alarmed readers responded to my wake-up call ahead of America’s impending real estate crash. The sole skeptic has been Frank P, a useful idiot whose thoughts served as counterpoint to the discussion we had on the topic yesterday. Turns out I’m not the only one Frank has been pestering with his odd ideas, including the surreal notion that there is no housing bubble. Full Story

This day is coming folks. The dollar is going to continue to deteriorate and a day of severe reckoning is coming. We told you so and we believe this event is occurring even now as we speak and will only continue to snowball as time progresses. And these are the reasons this gold bull market has not even begun yet. Full Story

By: Richard Daughty, The MOGAMBO GURU - 31 May, 2006

I was rudely and abruptly awakened by alarm bells ringing. I reflexively shot off an entire clip of expensive ammunition into the darkness before I realized it was not the Mogambo Homicidal Wife Detector (MHWD) that was ringing, but the Mogambo Economic Seismograph (MES). Full Story

By: Paul van Eeden - 31 May, 2006

What would the gold price be if we could replace all the existing notes and coins in the world with gold? Not such a long time ago paper receipts for gold in storage were used as currency, and people would trade these receipts because it was more convenient than carrying around a lot of gold. Over time, those who held the gold and issued the receipts noticed that physical gold was seldom claimed even thought the receipts changed hands several times. The temptation to issue more receipts than the gold in storage became too large to resist, and fractional banking was invented. This allowed the issuers to charge interest and increase the amount of currency in circulation. Full Story

By: Bob Chapman, The International Forecaster - 28 May, 2006

Gold and silver have risen for a number of reasons, but one that is little talked about is that historically, and especially in times of war, governments have escaped from fiscal over-commitments by letting their currencies depreciate. Ambitious spending initiatives, threats of international conflict and even Washington’s political unpopularity, all contribute to the fear that this is happening again now. Once the dollar slides it takes at least a couple of years to rebuild confidence in it and in the meantime gold rises as the only real currency that people have faith in. Full Story

Can you have too much of a good thing? And specifically, can targeting low inflation and stable prices create problems that are even larger than the ones a stable price policy is trying to avoid? Today we look at a very interesting set of ideas proposed by one William R. White of the Monetary and Economic Department of the Bank of International Settlements (BIS). The BIS can be understood to be a kind of a central banker's central bank. So when they talk about appropriate central bank policy, those of us much lower on the food chain should pay attention.
