The announcement by the Bundesbank of their intention to repatriate a portion of their gold reserves held in foreign central bank vaults is the beginning of the next phase of not only the gold bull market but the global curre...
Bill Anderson does a great job here of explaining just how stupid and nakedly villainous Paul Krugman truly is. I'm sure the sycophants in the NYT comments section are falling all over themselves to kiss his ring... b/c he's so, ya' know, smart and stuff.
Anyone predicting that gold would outperform housing in 2001 would likely have been viewed as being seriously deranged. After all, housing prices had increased for decades and by the peak of the housing market in 2007, real estate was believed to be a "can't lose investment." The mantra that housing values only go up proved to be disastrous for many Americans as the over-leveraged real estate market imploded, shattering the wealth dreams of both naive homeowners and investors.
Despite the trillions of dollars of direct support from ...
In 2001, that is exactly what I said. Gold would vastly outperform housing in the long term. I was a neophyte back then and could see the market for what it was. And yes I was called all manner of variations on 'seriously deranged.'

It’s not drastic austerity but a realistic plan for dealing with rampant profligacy.
Many pundits and saltwater economists claim the global financial system is not worried about U.S. fiscal policy because the 10-year note yield continues to hover around 1.7%. This argument is preposterous because the price of U.S. debt is meaningless as long as the FED‘s continued QE and large-scale asset purchases (LSAP)continues to badly distort the market. The FED is now purchasing $85 billion a month in Treasury and MBS debt.
