    Commodities Boom Only In ‘Early Innings’

    Steen Jakobsen returns to explain why 'we ain't seen nothin' yet'

    Back in December, Saxo Bank’s Steen Jakobsen predicted a massive boom in commodity prices was dead ahead. Not many others shared that view back then.

    But, boy, was he ever right.

    Commodity prices have exploded in the five months since that interview was recorded.

    And more important, in Steen’s eyes we ain’t seen nothin’ yet. He predicts commodity prices are going to continue heading higher, a LOT higher, from here.

    When Systems Collide

    In 2008 I created The Crash Course.  If you haven’t seen it, well, you really should.  It’s both very outdated and still spot on.

    In it I made the case that by looking through a resource lens we could come to this conclusion:  The next twenty years are going to be completely unlike the past twenty years.

    There are lots of ways to look at the world – geopolitically, spiritually, ecologically – but I’ve found that resources have both power predictive and explanatory powers.

    Now that we’re more than half-way through that 20-year period it’s fair to ask how the Crash Course predictions have held up.

    The record reveals that…

    The Fourth Turning

    A cascading loss of faith in institutions

    I care a lot about the future.  I wish it to be as abundant, hospitable, & prosperous for as many people as possible.

    Of course, how it actually turns out is not up to me.  It’s up to us.

    Where we need unity to accomplish some really huge, if not heroic, things over the coming years and decades, we’re as fractured as we’ve every been culturally and politically.  That there are certain parties actively driving wedges and seeking disunity bothers me greatly.  I believe history will once again be very unkind in how it remembers such people, but that’s another story for another day.

    The success of digital platforms is now creating crushing demand for real "stuff"

    “Digitization and the online platform have become too successful. So much so that they have exceeded the capacity of [the world’s] physical structures to deliver to their success.

    Demand for commodities, tangible assets and the companies that mine, manufacture and transport them is about to blow sky-high predicts, Steen Jakobsen, Chief Economist and CIO at Saxo Bank.

    The Company Store

    Leaves almost nothing to live on

    The scam enabled by today’s financial ““markets”” coupled with lots of easy cheap credit flowing to big monied interests is every bit as egregious as the company store of old; only today’s victims are mostly blind to the way that the system is rigged against them.

    Run this scam long enough and one day we’ll discover that the banks and their proxy agents — private equity funds, hedge funds, endowments, and family offices, etc — own all of the productive farmland, all of the mines, all of the oil wells, all of the timberland, and every other means of primary wealth production.

    Van Halen, M&Ms, And The Next Market Downturn

    How watching the right indicators will avoid disaster

    Believe it or not, the rock band Van Halen found a brilliant way to teach how having good indicators is key to achieving success.

    This is extremely true for the world of investing, where you’re deploying capital based upon an expected future return. How do you determine when it’s a good time to enter into an investment? Once in it, how do monitor the conditions supporting your rationale for holding it — are those changing? And if so, are they getting better or worse? When should you exit the position?

    For all of these questions, the better the indicators you use, the more accurate and informed your decision-making will be. And the better your returns as an investor will be.

    Brien Lundin: If They Don’t Want You To Own It, You Probably Should

    The wisdom (and challenges) of owning safe haven assets
    by Adam Taggart

    One of the most perplexing mysteries to us is that right as the Federal Reserve embarked on QE3 — which was a huge, enormous, $85 billion a month experiment — commodities began a multiyear decline within two weeks of that announcement. Concurrently, the world’s central banks plunged the world into steeply negative real interest rates, a condition that has almost always resulted in booming commodity prices — but not this time. Today, the ratio between commodity prices and equities is at one of, if not the most, extreme points in history.

    To explain that gap, we talk this week with Brien Lundin, publisher of Gold Newsletter and producer of the New Orleans Investment Conference (where Chris and Adam are speaking on Oct 25-28):
