    Doug Noland: There Will Be No Way Out When This Market Bubble Bursts

    Financial assets will become toxic to hold
    by Adam Taggart

    This week Doug Noland joins the podcast to discuss what he refers to as the "granddaddy of all bubbles".

    He certainly shares our views that prices in nearly every financial asset class have become remarkably distorted due to central bank intervention, first with Greenspan's actions to backstop the markets in the late-1980's, and more recently (and more egregiously) with the combined central banking cartel's massive and sustained liquidity injections in the years following the Great Financial Crisis.

    All of which has blown the biggest inter-connected set of asset price bubbles the world has ever seen. Noland foresees tremendous losses as inevitable, as the central banks lose control of the monstrosity they have created:

    Why The Markets Are Overdue For A Gigantic Bust

    It's just not possible to print our way to prosperity
    by Chris Martenson

    As much as I try, I simply cannot jump on the bandwagon that says that printing up money out of thin air has any long-term utility for an economy.

    It's just too clear to me that doing so presents plenty of dangers, due what we might call 'economic gravity': What goes up, must also come down.

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

    Killing savers, pensions & ultimately the bond market
    by Adam Taggart

    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:

    Fight Cage

    It's time we stop being the victims in this experiment
    by Chris Martenson

    To my eye, society is fraying apart. People are confused, angry, isolated, and increasingly willing to fight each other. Formerly peaceful resistance is turning into violence. Our baser emotions like fear, anger — rage, even– are now bubbling at the surface.

    It's entirely reasonable for people to be experiencing such emotions right now. But in most cases, their anger is misdirected.

    Sorry Losers!

    How the Fed has screwed the many to benefit the few
    by Chris Martenson

    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.

    Buy Gold While You Still Can!

    An important update on the supply of physical gold
    by Chris Martenson

    Friday, September 25, 2015, 7:56 PM

    30

    This report centers on preponderance of fascinating data revealing the extent of the West's massive dis-hoarding of physical gold, for the first time, begins to allow us to start estimating the range of end-dates for the flow to the East.

    Here’s the punchline: there’s an enormous and growing disconnect between the cash and physical markets for gold. This is exactly what we would expect to precede a major market-shaking event based on a physical gold shortage.

    Darkening Skies

    Market threats are multiplying

    Chris is busy finishing up a meaty report on the accelerating friction between the West and Russia, so I'm stepping in to make some quick notes on today's meaningful developments.

    As PP.com readers know, we've been cautioning about a serious market correction for a long time. Valuations have been so far divorced from fundamentals for so long that we are frighteningly overdue for a drop — likely a large one — in asset prices.

    The Screaming Fundamentals For Owning Gold

    Updated 2014 edition
    by Chris Martenson

    Friday, April 4, 2014, 1:44 PM

    25

    This report lays out the investment thesis for gold. Silver is mentioned only where necessary, as a separate report of equal scope will be forthcoming on that topic. Various factors lead me to conclude that gold is one investment that you can park for the next ten or twenty years, confident that it will perform well. Timing and logic for both entering and finally exiting gold as an investment are laid out in the full report.

    The punch line is this: Gold (and silver) is not in bubble territory, and its largest gains remain yet to be realized; especially if current monetary, fiscal, and fundamental supply-and-demand trends remain in play.

    Why 2014 Is Beginning to Look A Lot Like 2008

    The similarities are stacking up
    by charleshughsmith

    Does anything about 2014 remind you of 2008? 

    The long lists of visible stress in the global financial system and the almost laughably hollow assurances that there are no bubbles, everything is under control, etc. etc. etc.  certainly remind me of the late-2007-early 2008 period when the subprime mortgage meltdown was already visible and officialdom from Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan on down were mounting the bully pulpit at every opportunity to declare that there was no bubble in housing and the system was easily able to handle little things like default
