The Fiat Currency Cyclone Gathers / Politics / Fiat Currency

By: Stephen_Merrill

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe present experience of the United States and Europe from the abuse of fiat money has been a recurring drama for millennia.  Kingdoms, the reign of pharaohs, oligarchies, dictatorships, republics and empires have imploded from within largely due to discredited money. 

The Western Roman Empire fell a thousand years earlier than the Byzantine Romans by debasing the silver content of coinage to fund military adventures.  The debasement of the pound helped the sun set across the British Empire.  In the last century national fiat currencies have drown in hyperinflation in Germany, Italy, Yugoslavia, Hungary, Zimbabwe and Argentina (three times) to name the ones that come to mind to a Westerner.

Developed World in Financial Decay - How Long Before Fiat Money Collapses? / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Current Scene

Since 2007 and the start of the "credit-crunch" the developed world's money system has been under stress. As a consequence, there has been an economic downturn that government and bankers have not been able to stop, convincingly, in the last five years.

The developed world has decayed to the point that it can't handle another major crisis such as an oil price well into the $100+ area.

Counterfeiting Currency Cruises to Nowhere / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Michael_Pento

The European recession, which continues to steepen, has already caused the ECB’s Mario Draghi to promise to purchase unlimited quantities of bonds with duration of 1-3 years on the secondary market. Mr. Draghi plans to “sterilize” these purchases by auctioning one-week term deposits to banks. But there are two problems with this form of sterilization. The first is there is no guarantee that private banks will hand over all of their newly printed money back to the ECB. Instead, they may choose to make loans to the private sector and receive a higher return, causing a rapid increase in money supply growth.

By: Michael_Pento

If the August Non-farm Payroll report produces a number of less than 100k jobs, the chances of QE III being announced on September 13th are close to 100%. However, if the number is north of 100k the odds drop, but are still about 80% on more Fed money printing.

Fictitious Fiat Money, the Singularity and Root Cause / Politics / Fiat Currency

By: Joseph_Russo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf we wish ever to acquire an acceptable level of equitable harmony and justice both at home and abroad, it is essential that we maintain a keen understanding of, and a rather critical eye upon "money," which as you may know, in its fictitious form, is the singular root cause of all the world's most intractable challenges.

"In its true and honest form, money is the fruit of all freedom. In its fictitious form, it is the root of all evil."

A History of Exchange-rate Regimes Infographic / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Alasdair_Macleod

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt’s almost as if currencies are designed to confuse you. In fact, sometimes they even lie to you. Take the pound sterling for example; each 5, 10, 20 and 50 pound note assures you, the esteemed owner, the gracious right to redeem it for… 5, 10, 20 and 50 pounds respectively. Either there’s an awkward “I-give-it-to-you-so-that-you-can-give-it-back-to-me” manoeuvre involved here or somebody’s lying. Well, this quirk and much more is cleared up when recounting the evolution of currency systems over the past two centuries; and as it turns out this history is far more exciting than is usually let on (think political thriller as opposed to economic textbook!). So without further ado here we present a history of exchange-rate regimes from 1821 to the present day.

On the Road to Freedom From Fiat Money Economics / Economics / Fiat Currency

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYesterday was the 100th anniversary of Milton Friedman's day of birth. The Wall Street Journal ran a laudatory article on him.

This year is the 100th anniversary of Ludwig von Mises' Theory of Money and Credit. There has been no article in the Wall Street Journal. The Mises Institute took my advice and held several sessions on that book at its March week-long Austrian Scholars Conference. A book on that book will be published next year. Few people in academia and the financial media will notice.

The Currency Debasement Fallacy / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Chris_Marcus

In Frédéric Bastiat’s 1850 essay Ce qu'on voit et ce qu'on ne voit pas, the famous economist introduced the parable of the broken window. He illustrated the principle that intentionally breaking a window just so that someone can subsequently fix it did not actually represent an increase in the net wealth of an economy. Today we will examine a similarly misguided fallacy that has been the foundation of an equally disastrous pattern of economic policy. We will call this the fallacy of the debased currency.

Our Money Is Dying, Don't let your wealth die with it / Stock-Markets / Fiat Currency

By: Dr_Martenson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA question on the minds of many people today (increasingly those who manage or invest money professionally) is this: How do I preserve wealth during a period of intense official intervention in and manipulation of money supply, price, and asset markets?

As every effort to re-inflate and perpetuate the credit bubble is made, the words of Austrian economist Ludwig Von Mises lurk ominously nearby:

A recent study about high, long-term government budget deficits published by the Washington Post indicates that such situations can be statistically linked to significantly lower future growth levels.

The National Bureau of Economic Research looked at 26 past examples of when the level of government was running over 90 percent for a five year period or longer.

The Fiasco of Fiat Money / Economics / Fiat Currency

By: Thorsten_Polleit

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday's worldwide paper-, or "fiat-," money regime is an economically and socially destructive scheme — with far-reaching and seriously harmful economic and societal consequences, effects that extend beyond what most people would imagine.

Fiat money is inflationary; it benefits a few at the expense of many others; it causes boom-and-bust cycles; it leads to overindebtedness; it corrupts society's morals; and it will ultimately end in a depression on a grand scale.

Fiat Currency Collapse Dynamics / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Alasdair_Macleod

The reason we accept paper money as a store of value is habit. This habit has its origins in history, when banks took our gold as deposit and issued paper receipts for it. The gold has gone, but the paper with its habitual value remains, and we accept it without question. The only backing is a vague government promise.

Savings, investment, and the Keynesian preference, a follow-up / Economics / Fiat Currency

By: Alasdair_Macleod

There is a general belief that government finances are somehow immune from the financial reality faced by everyone else – an illusion fostered by bond markets and supported by the public’s wishful thinking. Look no further than the plight of the eurozone for evidence of the reality. Not only that, but history tells us that countries regularly default, yet we continue to buy government bonds in the belief they are less risky than any private sector debt. And if we begin to question the status quo, we are even told by financial regulators that government debt is less risky than anything else. Banking regulation enshrines it in Basel Committee guidelines, and modern portfolio theory – which guides securities regulation – casts it in stone.

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTim Case writes: "Sometimes people don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed." ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

If there are two things that can be said with all confidence they are that throughout American history the American public has had and continues to have an enduring commitment to owning firearms. Second is the government’s unerring ability to be the sole cause of economic calamities, regardless of how vibrant the markets.
