Off The Cuff: Are We About To See Taper Tantrum 2.0?

The Fed wants to tighten. Will markets stand for it?
Thursday, December 14, 2017, 1:16 AM

In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Axel Merk discuss:

  • Taper Tantrum 2.0?
    • The Fed wants to tighten. But can it?
  • Bad Balance Sheets
    • Can central banks simply hold their bad assets forever?
  • The Flattening Yield Curve
    • A classic signal of approaching recession
  • Bitcoin
    • Trying to make sense of the recent run-up

Recorded before today's FMOC announcement, Chris and Axel discuss the next moves of the central banks, who's intervention and collusion have driven markets more than any other factor over the past decade. Most people don't realize that monthly liquidity injections are currentlyat their highest ever since QE began.

Now that the Fed is talking seriously about tightening -- can it? Or will the markets revert to throwing a tantrum as the global liquidity spigots begin to reduce their flow?

They make freedom from the central banking cartel possible
Sunday, July 30, 2017, 3:28 PM

This week we talk with Patrick Byrne, CEO of Overstock.com, and rare courageous voice within corporate America raising concern that powerful interests on Wall Street are destroying US companies for profit, robbing investors and destabilizing our financial system in the process. 

Byrne has been an early advocate for digital currencies and their potential to protect financial wealth from the massive policy missteps being undertaken by the Federal Reserve. (In 2014, Overstock.com became the first major retailer to accept Bitcoin payments.) 

In this week's podcast, Byrne details out the promising potential of cryptocurrencies and the blockchain, as well as his thoughts as to whether they will be able or not to evade subversion by the world central authorities. » Read more

Danielle DiMartino Booth: An Insider Exposes The Evils Of The Fed

Killing savers, pensions & ultimately the bond market
Sunday, February 12, 2017, 1:01 PM

Danielle DiMartino Booth, former analyst at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, has just released the book Fed Up: An Insider's Take On Why The Federal Reserve Is Bad For America.

In it, Danielle describes how the Federal Reserve is controlled by 1,000 PhD economists and run by an unelected West Coast radical with no direct business experience. The Fed continues to enable Congress to grow our nation’s ballooning debt and avoid making hard choices, despite the high psychological and monetary costs. And our addiction to the "heroin" of low interest rates is pushing our economy towards yet another collapse.

This reckless monetary policy pursued by the Fed has resulted in the rich elite becoming markedly richer, while savers and retirees are being absolutely gutted. All while risking a coming conflagration in the bond markets that will destroy a painful percentage of the world's financial wealth: » Read more

Sorry Losers!

How the Fed has screwed the many to benefit the few
Friday, September 2, 2016, 4:48 PM

By its actions, the Federal Reserve has selected a precious few winners and many, many losers.  Sadly, you are highly likely to be one of the losers.

Sorry!

I'm one, too, if that helps soften the blow.

But we have a lot of company. » Read more
