Off The Cuff: The Coming Crisis Is Not Only Inevitable, It's Needed

We'll be better off for it (if we survive it)
Thursday, April 5, 2018, 11:22 PM

In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and John Rubino discuss:

  • Manipulated Markets
    • The plunge protection team is not sidelined yet
  • Manipulated Politics
    • Trade, and possibly kinetic, wars are being engineered deliberately
  • The Silver Lining Of The Next Great Financial Crisis
    • It should put us on sounder footing, if we survive it
  • Positioning To Profit From The Next Crash
    • There are asset classes and trading strategies that hold great promise

John Rubino delivers a hard-hitting rebuke of the current debt-based global fiat money regime, along with its current massive volumes of money printing, and explains why he not only predicts the system must crash, but that we'll be better off for it (should we survive it).

Charting Gold

What the charts are telling us
Tuesday, April 30, 2013, 9:51 AM

Few investment/finance topics spark as many strong emotions as gold, for its adherents and detractors are equally committed to their views, and equally unlikely to switch camps.

Adherents view gold as the only real money in a world of constant currency debasements, while detractors don’t see gold as an investment, as it lacks a yield and price-earnings ratio. » Read more

Robert Mish: Front-Line Evidence That We Are Nowhere Near a Gold Bubble

At closest, we're at a "2" out of 10
Friday, March 9, 2012, 4:46 PM

Robert Mish has been a precious metals dealer for nearly 50 years and knows what gold bubble mania looks like. We are nowhere near that stage, in his opinion.

Instead, he sees a US populace largely unappreciative of holding precious metal as a store of wealth, and engaged in a slow process of dis-hording their gold and silver to eager foreign buyers, who are more than happy to take the bullion back to their shores.

In terms of where we are on the gold mania spectrum, he sees us at a "2" out of 10.

But he foresees a very rude awakening ahead, as the populace eventually wakes up to the increasing damage that our over-debted global economy is doing to the purchasing power of world currencies. Because when the general investor finally realizes the protection the precious metals offer against currency debasement, much of the retail supply will already be out of the system, in very tight hands and largely overseas.

Moreover, when supply gets tight, there will be more challenges to obtaining physical bullion during a buying mania than there were during the last mania in 1980. There are many fewer local sources to exchange bullion these days, as much of that business is now transacted by online vendors dependent mail delivery to ship product, and they are more vulnerable to supply chain disruptions.

Be sure you're aware of how the form in which you hold your bullion will affect the price you get during a buying frenzy, when refining capacity is overwhelmed. You may find that your gold or silver sells at a hefty discount because it's not in a preferred format for trade. » Read more
