WTI #CrudeOil now -0.5% from +4.5%

Whatever ultimately the case, this has never been about oil prices except that they are the most visible and straddling indication between finance and economy; the money supply attempting a rebalancing in reverse of leverage that once dominated everything but no longer can fix to even slightly stable fashion. It is the representation of the structure behind the seeming cyclical.

The Fed Blinked; Dollar Plunged; Gold Rallied

Gold has fallen for the last few years based on this false belief that everything is great and we’re going to have a return to normalcy, and the Fed’s going to shrink its balance sheet. Nothing could be further from the truth. This gold price today, is at the highest it has been since the Fed hike. And this collapse in the dollar today is just the beginning.

The Worldwide Credit Boom Is Over, Now Comes A Tidal Wave Of Global Deflation

The world’s central bank cartel has ensured that there will be thousands of such filings in the years ahead because since the mid-1990s, central banks have engulfed the global economy in an unsustainable credit boom, while utterly disabling & falsifying the financial system that is supposed to price assets honestly, allocate capital efficiently & keep risk & greed in check.

Central Bank Credibility, The Equity Markets, And Gold

Coming out of the Great Recession, central bank credibility – their ability to “pull us out” of the Recession – was being severely questioned by investors.

Deconstructing the U.S. Economy: The Non-Recovery

Claims that the U.S. economy is suddenly rebounding have been made before. They are misleading at best and fallacious at worst. It would not be surprising to see further deterioration, which would force central planners to initiate additional unconventional intervention (i.e. Quantitative Easing).

Preparing for Obama’s 2015 Budget with a Chart and a Toy

Don’t Believe the Headlines, Big Banks are Still Screwing You

When it comes to big banks’ bad behavior and the fines they pay to settle “allegations” — which are actually civil charges and which would be criminal charges if applied to any other business or in any parallel universe — things aren’t even close to what they seem.

Deflation Is Coming And It’s Not What You Think

Deflation is coming but not in the way most people think about it – at least not at first. The deflation that’s coming first is coming to financial assets. That’s what I worry about – I worry about asset bubble deflation.
