The US Economy Needs More Than a Vaccine / Economics / Coronavirus Depression

By: Michael_Pento

The hype and hope being promulgated by Wall Street and D.C. is that the imminent and well-advertised approval of vaccines will bring the economy back to what they characterize as its pre-pandemic state of health. However, even if these prophylactics are very efficient in controlling the pandemic and lead the economy back to “normal”, the state of the economy was anything but normal and healthy prior to the Wuhan outbreak.  

The year over year change in GDP in the fourth quarter of 2020 from the trailing 12 months was just 2.3%. Admittedly, this wasn’t indicative of a terrible economy; but it also was very far from what many have portrayed as the best economy anyone has ever seen on the planet. Most importantly, to even get to that rather pedestrian level of just trend GDP growth for the year, the Fed had to slash interest rates three times in the five months prior to the start of 2020. And, please also remember that the Fed felt it necessary to return to Quantitative Easing (QE) in order to re-liquify the entire banking system and save the markets from crashing.

Freedom and Sweden’s Constitution / Politics / Pandemic

By: Steve_H_Hanke

In most countries, the tool of choice to “flatten the curve” of the coronavirus pandemic is the lockdown. Not in Sweden, which has chosen a rather laissez‐​faire approach. The borders have been kept open, and Swedes are free to travel within the country, visit bars and restaurants (with some restrictions), parks, hairdressers, gyms and most other places.

The cornerstone of the Swedish response is its constitution’s most important part, the Regeringsform. Chapter 2, Article 8 states: “Everyone shall be protected in their relations with the public institutions against deprivations of personal liberty. All Swedish citizens shall also in other respects be guaranteed freedom of movement within the Realm and freedom to depart the Realm.” The Regeringsform makes exceptions only for prisoners and military conscripts, and there is no provision for a peacetime state of emergency. While the constitutions of neighboring Finland and Norway also guarantee freedom of movement, neither juxtaposes that provision with a broad protection of “personal liberty.”

Gold Miners and Inflation / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: Gary_Tanashian

I want to try to answer a subscriber’s question as clearly as I can because it really does seem to be more confusing than it actually is. It’s always made sense to me but I understand there is a promotion machine out there selling viewpoints and in the gold sector especially, it is often wrong-headed, lazy analysis using tired assumptions.

“I do have a couple of questions that relate to gold/gold miner stocks that I can’t seem to get my head around. No hurry on an answer, just when you get time: From time to time, you have mentioned that inflation would send the gold bugs scurrying for cover. I had always thought that gold would rise during inflationary periods so I can’t seem to get why inflation would not be good for gold. And on the middle ground; how would gold likely act if we experience a prolonged period of stagflation?”

Stock Markets and the History Chart of the End of the World (With Presidential Cycles) / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2020

By: Rambus_Chartology

I’ve been posting exclusively for the last 2 months on the PM complex as I know that is most of our members main focus. Since the PM complex is now in consolidation mode I would like to take this time to show you the other bull market that has been taking place in the US stock markets. It is important for me personally to be on record as early as possible because it means nothing after the fact. The easiest trade to make is the one you do in hindsight, after the fact, as many like to say, I seen that move coming a mile away, again after it’s already half over.

I got on record on June 22nd of this year when I made a small post on the, Markets Update, that I do at the end of each day.

June 22nd post:

Before we look at today’s charts I would like to give you a short answer on why I’m taking on so many positions in the stock markets. The short answer for now is that I recently had an epiphany moment similar to the one I had on the US dollar back in 2014 when I discovered that massive 11 year base that was a fractal to the one that formed previously that most of you have seen many times.

Currently I’m seeing some patterns setting up in the stock markets that could lead to a very powerful rally the likes of what we’ve never seen before. I realize that many think I’m living in a fantasy land by being bullish on the stock markets which is fine because I don’t want to run with the herd. I want to go where no man has gone before. That sounds like a movie title.

What the Covid-19 Economic Recovery Really Looks Like / Economics / Coronavirus Depression

By: John_Mauldin

The media and politicians like to talk about "the economy" as a general term. These days, there is a lot of talk about it having V- or U-shaped recovery.

But within the economy right now are several different economies, and they won't see recovery at the same time or rate. So if we have to choose a letter for what the recovery will look like, maybe it should be a “K.”

That's because some will go up while others go down. This is already happening and apparent, as Heather Long illustrates for The Washington Post:

"This dichotomy is evident in many facets of the economy, especially in employment. Jobs are fully back for the highest wage earners, but fewer than half the jobs lost this spring have returned for those making less than $20 an hour, according to a new labor data analysis by John Friedman, an economics professor at Brown University and co-director of Opportunity Insights."

Precious Metal Bullion Markets Catch a Breath / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: MoneyMetals

Gold bugs may finally be taking their summer (stay)vacation. After months of frenetic activity in the bullion markets, physical buying and selling slowed a bit last week.

The respite, if it persists, could be welcome news for investors who have been frustrated by product scarcity and higher premiums.

The COVID-19-associated economic troubles have not been resolved, but those stories aren’t commanding the level of attention they did in recent weeks.

Are You Positioned for a Copper Price Explosion? / Commodities / Copper

By: Metals_Report

Independent financial analyst Matt Badiali presents the investment case for copper.

Copper will be the next metal to break out in 2020, and it's all about demand.

The price of copper just broke through $3.00 per pound. The red metal's price rose 45% so far in 2020. But that is still well below its 2011 high of $4.50 per pound.

That could change in the second half of this year.

$10,000 Gold – Or A Triple Top? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: Kelsey_Williams

Predictions for gold’s price are based on seemingly sound fundamentals and logic; but the fundamentals are incorrect and presented in unrealistic context. Here are some things to keep in mind when you see any predictions for the price of gold.  

GOLD IS NOT AN INVESTMENT

Gold, itself, is not an investment. Gold is real money and the original measure of value for everything else.

A higher gold price is inversely correlated to a decline in the purchasing power of the US dollar. This, can be seen historically on the chart (source) below…

Teachers Unions Covid-19 Fears, Should UK Children Go Back to School September 2020? / Politics / Educating Children

By: N_Walayat

Boris Johnson's clueless moronic government advised by vested interest Scientists who's primary focus is on feather their own nests hence repeatedly giving what turns out to be BAD advice is supplemented by teachers unions who are playing their own insidious game using children and pawns in their one upmanship against the Tory government all which has meant that the teachers IGNORED government instructions to OPEN all schools as of Mid June! Latest u-turn from out moronic government is for optional face masks to be worn in schools leaving the decision upto individual schools. Though reality is the children are more intelligent about the virus than the government, schools AND teachers!

What Britain's suffering children cannot afford is for the same insidious forces to disrupt and delay the opening of all schools in September 2020!

If you have three large objects that have gravitational impact on each other, you can determine where they have been in the past.

However, you cannot predict where they will be in the future. At least, not without great difficulty.

In physics, this is called the three-body problem.

In economics, we are well beyond the three-body problem. I think it is more like an eight-body problem. See if you agree:

Could Buffett Buy 130 Million Ounces of Silver Again? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2020

By: MoneyMetals

Earlier this week, precious metals markets got a surprising Buffett bounce.

Legendary investor Warren Buffett isn’t often associated with gold – at least not in a positive way. In the past Buffett has made derisive comments about the monetary metal. He once quipped that gold “has no utility.”

A perpetual optimist on the U.S. economy, Buffett by nature doesn’t like the message that is sent by higher gold prices. He has likened investing in gold to “going long on fear.”

How Much Does Hail Damage Devalue a Car? / Personal_Finance / Motoring

By: Steve_Barker

Owning a car has its fair share of challenges, including suffering hail damages.

If you live in an area susceptible to hailstorms, take precautions to keep off your car from hail damage. If the worst happens and the car is hit, take the necessary steps.

Hailstorms wreak havoc on a sleek car forcing the owner to incur repair costs they hadn’t planned for. Since nature’s behavior is inevitable, it pays to prepare for the worst in case disaster strikes.

A hail junk car not only devalues, but also loses the factory look it had before. So, buying a car with hail damage requires having details about the car first.

How to Start A Junk Car Business / Personal_Finance / Money Making

By: Steve_Barker

Having a less perfect car in your backyard is never an appealing sight. Always find the right company to buy the damaged car.

At times, the company can either repair the car for sale or sell the spare parts for profit. If it’s either selling or buying a damaged car, starting a junk car business is never easy.

In particular, you pay customers to get their damaged cars instead of getting paid. That’s why grit and top business knowledge must apply in this car venture.

Like in other businesses, you need commitment and patience to realize profits.

For some areas of the economy, that is clearly true. But not every area.
