    John Hathaway: Things Look Very Bullish For Gold Mining Stocks

    Declining supply, rising demand & positive cash flows
    by Adam Taggart

    Mining stocks have performed miserably over the past seven years, missing out completely on the central bank-created liquidity-fest that has raised nearly every other equity sector to record highs.

    But the long winter of abuse is over, claims highly-respected mining analyst John Hathaway, co-manager of the Toqueville Gold Fund. To John's veteran eye, the conditions in this beleaguered industry have improved substantially. Mining supply is tightening while demand is rising, and the surviving companies have achieved postive cash flows at today's depressed prices. 

    Claiming that we are now past "peak gold", Hathaway expects gold prices to move higher vigorously, propelling the shares of mining companies mutiples higher from where they are today.

    Charles Hugh Smith: Preventing The Final Fall Of Our Democratic Republic

    Fighting against the obscene concentration of wealth & power

    There's mounting evidence that the Age of American Exceptionalism is grinding to an end.

    Demographically, in the U.S. (as well as many other developed nations), the prospects of the younger generations are substantially less than those of the Baby Boomers. The same is true socioeconomically as well; the wealth gap between the 1% and everyone else continues to accelerate.

    What's been the root cause of this slide towards greater and greater inequity? Can anything be done to reverse it?

    Economist analyst and author Charles Hugh Smith addresses these core questions in his new book Pathfinding Our Destiny: Preventing The Final Fall Of Our Democratic Republic. Charles concludes that we are the terminal end of a multi-century process of centralization that is no longer working for society's benefit:

    Expect MUCH lower prices ahead

    The housing market is starting to look quite ill, as we've been tracking here at PeakProsperity.com.

    After the central bank-driven Grand Reflation following the Great Financial Crisis, home prices are now beginning to nose over from their new bubble-highs.

    Has the Housing Bust 2.0 begun? If so, how bad could things get? And what steps should those looking to pick up values at much lower prices in the future be taking?

    This week we talk with citizen journalist Ben Jones, property manager and publisher of TheHousingBubbleBlog — where he tracks the latest headlines and developments in the housing market.

    Scott Tinker: Can The World Energy Supply Become Fully Sustainable?

    Just possibly, but we'll have to make HUGE changes

    As we claim often here at PeakProsperity.com: Energy is everything.

    Will our global society be able to transtiton off of its extreme dependence on fossil fuels? And if so, can we do so without too much pain?

    Scott Tinker is the Director of the Bureau of Economic Geology at the University of Texas at Austin, and founder of the non-profit Switch Energy Alliance, which is dedicated to helping humanity address these key questions.

    Tinker remains confident a much better future energy-wise is possible; but will require a tremendous shift in behavoir, investment and technological innovation.

    In his eyes, society can make the transition. But will it? That's a lot less certain…

    Steen Jakobsen: The Four Horsemen Portend A Painful Reckoning

    Even the US is now 'swimming naked'

    Steen Jacobsen, Chief Economist and Chief Investment Officer of Saxo Bank sees economic slowdown ahead.

    Specifically, his “Four Horseman” indicators: the drivers of economic growth, are all flashing red.

    Jacobsen believes that the central banks will continue their liquidity tightening efforts for as long as they can get away with (i.e., until the financial markets start toppling over). In his opinion, they eased way too much for way too long; and the malinvestment and zombification that resulted needs to clear the system — and it will likely do so more violently and painful than the central banks will like.

    Mike Maloney: “One Hell Of A Crisis”

    Crashing stocks, bonds, real estate & currency all at once?

    Mike Maloney, monetary historian and founder of GoldSilver.com, has just released two new chapters of his excellent Hidden Secrets Of Money video series.

    In producing the series, Maloney has reviewed several thousand years of monetary history and has observed that government intervention and mismanagement — such as is now rampant across the world — has always resulted in the diminishment and eventual failure of currency systems.

    As for the world’s current fiat currency regimes, Mike sees a reckoning approaching. One that will be preceded by massive losses rippling across nearly all asset classes, destroying the phantom wealth created during the latest central bank-induced Everything Bubble, and grinding the global economy to a halt.

    Indigenous: The Importance Of Fair Trade

    It supports better models

    Did you know that the fashion industry is responsible for five percent of the world's greenhouse gas emissions? That's equivalent to the impact of the aviation industry  — equal to the carbon output of all the planes flying around the planet each year.

    Just as what we choose to eat has an impact on our bodies, our communities and the planet, so does what we wear. But while there's been substantial advancement in consumer labelling in the food industry ("organic", "pasture-raised", etc), there's not much of an equivalent with apparel.

    The next time you buy an article of clothing, how can you make a choice better aligned with your values?

    Joe Saluzzi: The Markets Are Still Way Too Vulnerable To A Sudden Liquidity Disappearance

    HFTs remain a major issue
    by Adam Taggart

    In the past, Joe Saluzzi has been a vocal critic of the dominant and parasitic role HFT algorithims play in today's financial markets, siphoning off profits at the expense of the "dumb money" (i.e. retail investors) while undermining the integrity and stability of exchanges. Front running, spoofing, flash crashes — HFTs are the culprits behind them.

    Saluzzi actually has some positive developments to note: namely that the obscene profits the HFTs used to make (i.e., steal) are moderating as the arms race in the industry has escalated and the players are increasingly competing with each other. Also, the SEC appears to be moving much faster now towards putting some material constraints in place.

    But the unfair advantages that HFTs enjoy, as well as their threat to market stability, are still very real. If we don't continue to fight to bring them under control, we risk a vicious downdraft during the next big market crisis should the algos instantly exit in a panic.
