By: Jason Hommel, Silver Stock Report - 14 April, 2006

Confiscation fears are understandable. Although silver that you own is default free, and cannot go to zero value... there is only one remaining problem: it can be stolen by thieves, or government. This is the age-old problem of being wealthy, you have to protect your wealth. Full Story

Last month I had the pleasure of sitting down to an exclusive interview with famed investor and best-selling author, Jimmy Rogers. Among the topics we discussed were China, commodities, the U.S. dollar, and Gold. The forty-five minute, extremely candid and highly provocative interview consisted of my asking and Jim answering ten questions, as well as follow-up questions and discussions between the two of us. I then condensed the interview into a sixteen-page special report, an excerpt from which is reproduced below. Full Story

Back in the 1950s when gold, silver and oil were far less interesting subjects, Hollywood produced one of its better science fiction B-movies called "When Worlds Collide". The basic story involved a star on a collision course with the Earth. The lucky few rocketed off to its companion planet before the star incinerated the Earth to a cinder. Sadly, important questions were not answered by the filmmakers such as whether this event led to the mother of all gold bear markets and whether Greenspan or Bernanke managed to convince anyone they should be on that rocket. After all, central bankers are indispensable, right? Full Story

It has been some time since we last examined the progress of the developing Global Economic Order (GEO). In the months that have since elapsed, much progress has been made by the internationalists in realizing their goal of bringing the U.S., and the world, closer to a fully integrated global economy. Now that 2006 is well underway it is fitting that we turn our gaze backward for a moment to view the developments made last year in furthering global economic interests. When we examine 2005 in retrospect, a dominant geo-political theme emerges summarized by that ubiquitous word "democracy." Full Story

Trade war in my opinion coincides with erosion of sovereignty from decades of chronic inflation. Trade protection, even protection from foreign ownership of prized assets, are the manifestation of failed policies. The United States is one of the worst offenders in trade tariffs and policy in opposition to free markets. Year after year of large scale monetary inflation erodes the body economic. It tilts the economy’s wealth generation apparatus toward the financial sector, where inflation most vividly appears and where work is minimized. Full Story

Fed chairman Bernanke and his cronies are said to be “confident” that the statistically compelling slowdown under way in the housing sector won’t much affect the U.S. economy. He evidently sees it as a case of a hot market cooling down to a more normal temperature. Thus would the world’s top spinmeister trot out the old Soft Landing hypothesis to describe the endgame of the most spectacular, broad-based mania in U.S. history – one that is destined to dwarf the dot-com collapse in its impact on America’s prosperity.

By: Richard Daughty, The MOGAMBO GURU - 12 April, 2006

I notice with dark dismay that the horrid Federal Reserve is now back on track to destroy the dollar as soon as it can, as evidenced by the fact that Total Fed Credit shot up by $6.4 billion last week. With the current insanely-low fractional-reserve ratio of the banks set by the Fed (literally zero for new deposits), this means that the banks can create (let me re-check the calculations again) 64 zillion kajillion dollars out of thin air, all of which devalues all the rest of the dollars already in existence.

So, the title to our article was “After 600?” We can answer that question easily enough. Next there will be 700, 800, 900, 1,000 and above a thousand? This really is more than just a nice gold rally. What we are witnessing is a “signal event” warning us to batten down the financial hatches, get out of debt and invest in gold and silver. Full Story

By: Keith W. Rabin and Scott B. MacDonald - 12 April, 2006

Our basic thesis that global growth is dependent on a shift of demand away from the US to Asia, Emerging Markets and Europe remains in place. We believe this will be accompanied by a move away from the US in other ways as well. For example, recent comments by Governor of the Central Bank of Qatar, Abdulla Khalid al-Atiyya that the bank may consider holding as much as 40% of its reserves in Euros is one of many indicators of continuing movement away from a reliance on the US dollar as a global reserve currency.

If investors needed a wall of worry to climb, they’ve got one now. With oil prices again pushing $70 a barrel and Iran giving the finger to the world, worrying should come easy to market-watchers who are inclined to fret. To give the Iranians their due, they showed canny timing in announcing they have successfully enriched uranium. A day earlier President Bush had placed his ebbing political capital on the line, asserting that the solution to a recalcitrant Iran lies in negotiation, not bombs. Full Story

“It’s a Sticky Wicket”
Lately, I’ve been talking with quite a few managers and CEO’s of junior mining companies and there is an air of frustration in their voices. We have gold near $600 US and Silver close to $13.00 US and we hear a lot of zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz coming from the public! Of course, people involved in the industry; especially in the Junior Mining Sector are overwhelmingly bullish. Well, some of them are. Others are confused. However, it would seem that many of them are still waiting for the rest of the country, if not the world, to catch up! Full Story

By: Dudley Baker - 11 April, 2006

Our rather pessimistic articles of late on the housing bubble, the ominous warnings from a long list of financial experts and their suggestions on how to best weather the impending financial hurricane have been refuted by none other than the well read author of our "Crazy Man" articles (see "A Crazy Man's Rant or Right On? You be the Judge" and "Crazy Man's Rant - He's Crazy Like a Fox!") who sees things completely differently. Who is right - the eternal optimist with a different take on the economic environment or the big bad bears? Below are his comments. Full Story

To me, at least, it feels like there is much, much more still to come, and that gold seems destined to break the $1,000 mark. When it finally happens, you can bet we won’t be reading about a government plot to hold prices down. Rather, we’ll see mining company CEOs on the cover of Forbes, Fortune, Business Week. And even then, it’ll still be a few more years before we see the same guys in Vanity Fair, GQ and…Maxim. That’ll be the top. But at $600 an ounce, the bull market feels like it’s only just starting to rev up. Full Story

Home is where the fraud scams cropping up more frequently...

Eventually, everything is such a swindle that even the swindles are phony...

Precious metals and their shares continue to surprise to the upside. Most forecasting models and mavens are bullish but negatively biased, forecasting too many bearish outcomes. This process is accelerating, as the trend out runs increasing numbers of bulls. The quant in me hints that the higher order moments of some underlying forcing function must all be positive. That is, the acceleration is accelerating, or surging. And while physical interpretations of the 4th, 5th, and 6th derivatives are a bit obscure, their proposed names, snap, crackle, and pop offer intriguing possibilities. Full Story

A debt deflation is not merely likely for the U.S. economy but inevitable, and that is why I no longer debate the issue in this forum. If the inflationists don’t “get it” by now, they probably never will. However, the timing of economic Armageddon is another matter, and there is still room to argue whether Helicopter Ben will be able to delay its onslaught for a few more years. Full Story

The NASDAQ bubble happened because of Greenspan. Or a collective mania. Or any number of things. Just like the proverbial butterfly flapping its wings in the Amazon that triggers a storm in Europe, maybe an investor in St. Louis triggered the NASDAQ crash. Crazy? Maybe not. Today we will look at what complexity theory tells us about the reasons for earthquakes, disasters and the movement of markets. Full Story
