Dr. Jim Willie: The U.S. Dollar And The Loss of Global Reserve Status

  • Dr. Jim Willie: The U.S. Dollar And The Loss of Global Reserve Status 
    In the video above, you’ll find the continuation of my interview with Dr. Willie from the post titled, U.S. Dollar’s Status as the Global Reserve Continues To Lose Credibility. In the first half of the interview, you heard Dr. Willie voicing his own frustrations with how hard it is to convince people he cares about that dire economic times are on the horizon, especially when on the surface market conditions are giving off the appearance that everything is great, largely because new all-time highs continue to be reached almost weekly! 

    In the article that accompanied the first half of the interview with Dr. Willie, it referred to“Trumphoria,” a phenomena describing people who were once preparing for the impending global collapse, but have somehow been duped into believing that a Trump presidency can turn around decades of poor monetary policy. Those people are sorely mistaken! That’s not a knock on Trump’s ability either. The simple fact is that our nation has accumulated the largest mountain of debt the world has ever seen, and as Dr. Willie explains, our status as the World Reserve Currency is almost at an end.

Egon von Greyerz: Inflation, Stagflation, Hyperinflation & Deflation — All at the Same Time

  • Egon von Greyerz: Inflation, Stagflation, Hyperinflation & Deflation — All at the Same Time
    by Greg Hunter’s (Early Sunday Release)
    Financial expert Egon von Greyerz (EvG) says, “Bond markets around the world are in the biggest bubble in history.” EvG thinks when it blows up, we are going to get hit with everything in the financial horror house.  EvG explains, “We are guaranteed to have ‘flation.’  There will be inflation, stagflation, hyperinflation and deflation.  We will have all of that.  At the same time, a lot of prices will be inflationary or hyperinflationary, at some point, as they print more money.  We will also have deflation of debt and deflation of more of the bubble assets that the credit bubble has created.  Debt will implode and also property and stocks.”

    EvG goes on to add, “I know a lot of people have been buying into this Trump rally, which I find amazing in my view. The overvaluation on the U.S. stock market is just incredible.  The Shiller P/E ratio is now around 27.   It’s over 50% above the average, 50% above the average.  The value of the S&P to GDP is something like 75% above the average.  You are looking at massively overvalued stock markets, and people are buying into this.  It’s the absolute perfect trap.  I don’t see these stock markets staying at these levels for very long.  I think they are going to be turning soon.”

    On gold, EvG, who vaults gold for wealthy clients, says, “Gold is mainly going down because of the dollar. Since the Fed decision last week, gold has not really gone down in euros or Swiss Francs.  It’s gone down in these currencies only a fraction, maybe. . . . The dollar is just temporarily strong because of higher interest rates.  I think in 2017, the dollar is going to be the currency that will fall the most.”

Deutsche Bank Provides “Smoking Gun” Proof Of Massive Rigging And Fraud In The Silver Market

Click on image for article.


  • Deutsche Bank Provides “Smoking Gun” Proof Of Massive Rigging And Fraud In The Silver Market  
    by Tyler Durden, 
    Back in April, when we first reported that Deutsche Bank had agreed to settle allegations it had rigged the silver market in exchange for $38 million, we revealed something stunning: “in a curious twist, the settlement letter revealed that the former members of the manipulation cartel have turned on each other“, and that Deutsche Bank would provide docments implicating other precious metals riggers. To wit: “In addition to valuable monetary consideration, Deutsche Bank has also agreed to provide cooperation to plaintiffs, including the production of instant messages, and other electronic communications, as part of the settlement. In Plaintiff’s estimation, the cooperation to be provided by Deutsche Bank will substantially assist Plaintiffs in the prosecution of their claims against the non-settling defendants.”

    Overnight we finally got a glimpse into what this “production” contained, and according to documents filed by the plaintiffs in the class action lawsuit, what Deutsche Bank provided as part of its settlement was nothing short of “smoking gun” proof that UBS Group AG, HSBC Holdings Plc, Bank of Nova Scotia and other firms rigged the silver market. The allegation, as Bloomberg first noted, came in a filing Wednesday in a Manhattan federal court lawsuit filed in 2014 by individuals and entities that bought or sold futures contracts.

Jim Willie Warns: US Debt Default DEAD AHEAD! Cracks in The Bond Market


  • Jim Willie Warns: US Debt Default DEAD AHEAD! Cracks in The Bond Market
    by Jim Willie, GoldenJackass
    Foreign USTreasury Bond dumping continues, and even accelerates. China and the Saudis are selling USTreasurys in a near panic. Foreign central banks liquidated a record $375 billion in USGovt debt in the last 12 months. An American disaster lies in the making from debt saturation, debt overload, and debt dumping. It is all denied by the Washington mouthpieces and the Wall Street handlers, as they lie. The USGovt debt default is within view, dead ahead.

    One month ago in October tally, the USFed update of Treasurys held in custody revealed a frightening picture of foreign sales, big sales, even accelerated sales. The total amount of custodial paper had fallen to $2.805 trillion, the lowest since 2012. One month later, foreign central banks continued their relentless liquidation of US debt paper, as measured by the same custody account.

    Foreign central banks, sovereign wealth funds, reserve managers, and virtually every other official institution in possession of US debt paper, are liquidating their holdings at a frantic pace. They respond to domestic pressures with deficits to finance. They respond to the US fundamental situation, which resembles a Third World nation on a debt basis more so with each passing month.

    The next fiscal year for the USGovt is actually incredibly astonishingly on pace to surpass the $2.0 trillion mark in the deficit. Obama goes out with a bang, with accolades and applause from his fawning fascist fold. His dimwitted dowdy devoted followers even cheer the rising ObamaCare premiums, which they fail to comprehend as rising costs.

John Williams: Hyper-Inflation & Complete Demise of Dollar Coming

  • John Williams: Hyper-Inflation & Complete Demise of Dollar Coming  
    by Greg Hunter’s
    Economist John Williams has been forecasting a dollar selloff for a few years. It now looks like the manipulators are running out of options to keep propping up the U.S. dollar.  Williams explains, “I think we are going to see massive dollar selling ahead.  We have problems here not just with the economy, but you have the Fed faced with a circumstance where the U.S. banking system and the global banking system was threatened with collapse in the panic of 2008.  The Fed and the Treasury decided they did not want the system to collapse. . . . All they did was buy time.  Now, that time has basically run out.  The economy has not turned around.”

    One major indicator Williams looks at to see if the economy is getting better is the good old fashion help wanted ads that have now moved online. What does Williams see there?  Williams says, “Beginning this year, it turned down and is negative year to year.  It has just been plummeting, and it took a big hit in November.  That is a leading indicator, and it shows that the economy is getting worse, and it is going to be worse in the near term.”

    So, as the economy turns down, the banks will come under pressure. Williams predicts, “Solvency stresses on the banks will mount.  The Fed will come back as it needs to keep the banks afloat, and at the same time, it will also hit the funding needs of the U.S. Treasury.  The weak economy means the tax revenues fall off, and then you will tend to see stimulus packages which tend to widen the deficit.  Then, you will need to borrow more. . . .  You are going to see a big widening of the trade deficit, which again is going to pressure the dollar.  You have a confluence of factors now that are going to be working against the dollar, working against the U.S. economy and working against the solvency of the U.S. banking system.   The Fed will give preference to the banking system, and as they move into a new easing mode, that’s going to kill the dollar and spike inflation.  They will save the banks against any concerns about the dollar and inflation.  They have to keep the banks afloat.”
