Global Economy Poised on a Knife-Edge Between Inflation & Deflation

The global economy is poised on a knife-edge between inflation and deflation. The inflationary vector could dominate quickly, based on a combination of Trump deficits & Fed accommodation.

Why Stocks Could Fall 50% if the Fed Makes the Wrong Move

I don’t know what the Fed’s going to do. That’s a guessing game. What’s important is that we’re in an extremely fragile situation. The world has too much debt & the Fed’s margin for error is tiny. If it takes a wrong step & stocks plummet 50%, it could cause a bigger financial crisis than in 2008. Do you trust the US government & the Fed to manage this dangerous situation?

When It Comes To Total Debt, Greece Is Not Much Worse Than France Or USA

The problem France will find further down the road is that its own debt dynamics & sustainability is also highly questionable.

Is Russia Planning a Gold-Based Currency?

Repercussions of Russia on a gold-exchange standard would be immense. A gold standard would be politically appealing, transforming ruble to a formidable currency & reducing outflows significantly.

Will There Be Forced Official Sellers Of Gold?

Central bank gold buying in recent years has not helped the gold price one bit. A few nations may indeed be forced to sell some of their official gold reserves as a result of plunging oil prices. It seems however not likely at this juncture that Russia will be one of them. Moreover, the impact on the gold market should also be quite limited.

The Collapse Of The Dollar Is Unavoidable - Peter Schiff

None of the attributes that made the US & the dollar so great and deserving of the world’s reserve currency status, exist today. America is now a mirror image of its former self- Now the world’s biggest debtor, with the biggest trade deficit and the dollar backed by nothing.

Debt - The Real "Pin" That Could Pop the Stock Bubble
