    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:

    Signs Of Distress

    The need to change is becoming more obvious than ever
    by Chris Martenson

    The world is edging closer to the final moments after which everything will be forever changed.

    Grand delusions, perpetuated over decades, will finally hit the limits of reality and collapse in on themselves.

    We’re over-budget and have eaten deeply into the principal balances of all of our main trust accounts. We are ecologically overdrawn, financially insolvent, monetarily out past the Twilight Zone, consuming fossil fuels (as in literally eating them), and adding 80,000,000 net souls to the planet’s surface — each year! — without regard to the consequences.

    Someday there will be hell to pay financially, economically, and ecologically as there simply isn’t any way to maintain these overdrafts forever. Reality does not renegotiate. Its deal terms aren't compromisable.

    Off The Cuff: The Global Flow Of Money

    It's determining the price of everything right now
    by Adam Taggart

    In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Charles Hugh Smith discuss:

    • Cultural Capital
      • How will those around you react during a crisis?
    • The Fragility Within Our Centralized System
      • Lots of dependencies that can fail & bring the entire system to a halt
    • Musical Chairs
      • Who will have to eat the bad debts when the can can no longer be kicked?
    • The Importance Of Global Capital Flows
      • They're determining the price of everything

    As 2017 kicks off, Chris sits down with Charles to discuss some of the big themes likely to drive events in this new year. The two focus on the growing instability of our centralized systems — economic, energy and otherwise — and pay particular attention to the impact that the huge pool of money sloshing around the world is having on prices everywhere. Right now, that flood of capital — out of bonds and into stocks, the dollar, etc — is the primary driver of prices. Of course, this should make us ask: what will happen when those flows change direction? Or instead of continuing to grow, start receding?

    Strange Happenings in Japan

    Reckless leadership with a hidden agenda
    by Chris Martenson

    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.

    The Great Market Tide Has Now Shifted To Risk-Off Assets

    A global sea-change in risk appetite & sentiment
    by charleshughsmith

    Friday, July 8, 2016, 7:03 PM

    In the conventional investment perspective, risk-on assets (i.e. investments with higher risks and higher potential returns) such as stocks are on a see-saw with risk-off assets (investments with lower returns and lower risk, such as Treasury bonds). When risk appetites are high, institutional managers and speculators move money into stocks and high-yield junk bonds, and move money out of safe-haven assets such as gold and U.S. Treasuries.

    But recently, markets are no longer following this convention. Safe haven assets such as precious metals and Treasuries are soaring at the same time that stock markets bounced strongly off the post-Brexit lows.

    Risk-on assets (stocks) rising at the same time as safe-haven assets is akin to dogs marrying cats and living happily ever after. 

    What the heck is going on?
