    The Fed Is Lying To Us

    "When it becomes serious, you have to lie"

    The recent statements from the Federal Reserve and the other major world central banks (the ECB, BoJ, BoE and PBoC) are alarming because their actions are completely out of alignment with what they’re telling us.

    Their words seek to soothe us that “everything’s fine” and the global economy is doing quite well. But their behavior reflects a desperate anxiety.

    Put more frankly; we’re being lied to.

    Richard Sylla: This Is An Inherently Dangerous Moment In History

    Low interest rates are causing distortions & mis-allocations
    by Adam Taggart

    "The rates we’ve had in recent years, including right now, are the lowest in history. The book that I co-authored on the history of interest rates traces back to the code of Hammurabi, Babylonian civilization, Greek and Roman civilization, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and early modern history right up to the present. And I can assure our listeners that the rates that they’re experiencing right now are the lowest in human history."

    So says Richard Sylla, Professor Emeritus of Economics and the Former Henry Kaufman Professor of the History of Financial Institutions and Markets at New York University's Stern School of Business. He is also co-author of the book A History Of Interest Rates

    We invited Professor Sylla onto the podcast after hearing his work favorably referenced by the panel convened at the recent hearing held by the US Congress titled: “The Federal Reserve’s Impact on Main Street, Retirees and Savings.”

    Based on his deep study across the scope of millennia of human history, Sylla warns we are at a dangerous moment in time.

    Hell To Pay

    The final condition for a market crash is falling into place
    by Chris Martenson

    Those familiar with my writing know I put the word “markets” in quotes because we no longer have a financial system where legitimate price discovery is a regular — or even recognizable — feature.

    It's destined to fail. What more can be said about such a flawed system?

    Well, a lot as it turns out. 

    And failure to pay attention at this stage of economic and ecological history will prove to be exceptionally painful.

    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.

    All asset classes will collapse in tandem when this bursts

    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:

    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.
