The Way Out of Our Economic Mess

 

By Terry Coxon, Casey Research

"A rock and a hard place" is a long-running theme of Casey Research publications. It refers to the dilemma the US government has wandered into with its continued policy of rescue inflation. The "rock" is what will happen if the Fed pauses for long in printing still more money – the collapse of an economy burdened by an accumulation of mistakes that rescue inflation has been keeping at bay. The "hard place" is the disruptive price inflation that becomes more likely (and likely more severe) with every new dollar the Fed prints to keep the effects of those mistakes suppressed.

When the dollar was cut loose from the gold standard in 1971

A Case of Too Little, Too Late

This is a short excerpt from the WSJ covering the speech made yesterday by Chairman Ben Bernanke:

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke warned the U.S. economic recovery was "close to faltering," and said Congress and the White House had a "shared responsibility" with the central bank to respond.

Such dire warnings are a gamble for Fed chiefs—or any leading policy maker for that matter. Mr. Bernanke wants to spur action in Washington, but he doesn't want to undermine fragile household and business confidence with gloomy talk

Political Turmoil Takes Center Stage

As we see it, political turmoil is still the major determinant for the price of precious metals.

Also note that on a day when both gold and silver prices moved higher, the producers lost ground, which once again raises the question of are they recognized as connected to the metals or are they still being considered as a 'stock' and will be bought and sold as a stock? The DOW lost 258 points today, so out went the miners with the bath water

Pessimism in the gold space


A number of investors have been hit pretty hard during the recent pull back in gold prices so we thought that we would begin with this missive from Jim Sinclair to add a bit of optimism and balance to the debate:

Gold Stocks Continue To Disappoint

The recent major rally in gold is now experiencing a correction, so it is time to take a look at how gold stocks compared to a number of other gold trading vehicles. Quite frankly, it was abysmal. The argument that gold stocks are still the best gold trading vehicle is absolutely absurd. That being said, this article is in no way trying to discredit any gold mining, exploration companies or the efforts of the industry. The aim of this article is to simply show that gold stocks in general are unsuitable when trying to benefit from rising gold prices.

The main argument used when discussing the benefits of gold stocks is that higher gold prices equate to higher profits, however it is not quite as that simple
