    Precious metals analyst Ted Butler returns to the podcast this week to discuss the long-suffering silver price.

    Will the beatings continue? Or is there finally reason to believe that, after seven painful years of languishing, silver may finally see a brighter future?

    Butler predicts a turning point is nigh. And ironically, he thinks silver's savior will be the same cultprit responsible for keeping the price suppressed for all these years:

    Off The Cuff: Making Sense Of The FOMC Decision

    The likely impacts of this week's Fed and BOJ (in)actions
    by Adam Taggart

    Thursday, September 22, 2016, 3:33 AM

    21

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

    • Fed In A Box
      • At this point, stalling is Yellen's only option
    • Boneheaded BOJ
      • Now trying to undue the damage of its recent NIRP policies
    • Blind To Bubbles
      • Central banks are unwilling to admit they're the cause of the problem, not the solution
    • Bad Policies
      • Capitalism is getting destroyed (and a bad rap) by central banks run amok

    In the wake of the closely-watched announcements by the BOJ and the Federal Reserve, Chris and Axel sit down in this meaty discussion to pick through the particulars of what this week's announcement mean. In a world where everything hangs on the decisions of an elite few central banks, this is one of the more important podcasts we've released in a while.

    Michael Pento: The Coming Bond Bubble Collapse

    All asset classes will collapse in tandem when this bursts
    by Adam Taggart

    In this week's podcast, Michael Pento, fund manager and author of The Coming Bond Bubble Collapse, explains how the United States is fast approaching the end stage of the biggest asset bubble in history. He describes how the bursting of this bubble will cause a massive interest rate shock that will send the US consumer economy and the US government—pumped up by massive Treasury debt—into bankruptcy, an event that will send shockwaves throughout the global economy:

    The Marginal Buyer Holds The Pin That Pops Every Asset Bubble

    So it's important to watch him very closely
    by Adam Taggart

    Those of you who took an Economics class in college may remember the saying that prices are set "at the margin". That's a fancy way to say that prices are set by the person (or people) willing to pay the most.

    This person willing to pay top dollar is called the "marginal buyer". Most of us don't really think about him, but he (or she) is very, very important.

    Why? Because the marginal buyer not only determines price levels, but also their stability and degree of volatility. The behavior of the marginal buyer, as well as the degree of competition for his/her "top dog" spot, sets the prices of nearly every asset class held by today's investors.

    Strange Happenings in Japan

    Reckless leadership with a hidden agenda

    The whole world now waits to see which central bank is up next to do the heavy lifting for the next round of stock and bond propping.

    And so Japan is now front and center on that stage again. Especially since Bernanke just traveled there to conclude a "secret" meeting with Prime Minister Abe and Bank of Japan head Kuroda.

    Steen Jakobsen: The End Of The Debt Cycle

    As transformational as the fall of the Berlin Wall

    As we've been watching closely, something is wrong with the big banks. Their shares have lost 25-33% of their market value since the beginning of the year. What's going on?

    The turmoil seems greatest in Europe, where bank shares have fallen the hardest, and negative interest rates have appeared with increasingly frequency across member countries.

    To make sense of it all, we've invited Steen Jakobsen back on, Chief Investment Officer of Saxo Bank, who can provide an eyes-on-the-ground perspective on the European banking system from his location in Copenhagen.

    Deflation Is Winning – Beware!

    Expect the ride to get even rougher
    by Chris Martenson

    Deflation is back on the front burner and it's going to destroy all of the careful central planning and related market manipulation of the past 6 years.

    Clear signs from the periphery indicate that a destructive deflationary pulse has been unleashed. Tanking commodity prices are confirming that idea.

    For Heaven’s Sake: Hedge!

    If you're not positioned defensively by now, you're nuts
    by Adam Taggart

    Last fall, I wrote an article titled Defying Gravity that warned of the absurd price levels that stocks and bonds had risen to. Less than a month later, the stock market abruptly dropped by 7%. Those who didn't seek safety in advance were left licking their wounds, panicked not knowing if the painful down-draft was over.

    So here we are roughly six months later, and the same warning bells are ringing — just louder this time.
