  • US $ Gold prices have remained above $1400 for five weeks, due in part to Federal Reserve’s actions
  • Continued Central Bank accumulation of physical gold represents fundamental floor
  • A weakening US dollar accelerates Central Bank demand and reinforces policies to continue purchases.
  • 2018 purchases came in at 650 tons
  • Estimates peg Central Banks purchases at approximately 375 tonnes in the first half of 2019
  • Trade wars ( China ) and Geopolitical conflicts ( Iran ) are price supportive
  • Technical factors support higher long term gold prices and renewal of bull market
  • Higher prices make marginal projects economic

VIDEO (1min 21secs): Paulson Explains “Too Fast To Stop” … How A Bank Run Brings The Entire System Down

Posted by AGORACOM at 11:31 AM on Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

I am growing ever more concerned that trust in financial institutions is eroding. Trust, after all, is what allows you to keep your money, gold, silver and other assets stored with various financial institutions (banks, brokerages, etc.). Once that trust is gone, the repercussions go far beyond hurt feelings.

Given the recent MF Global collapse, followed by this story in Bloomberg in which we can’t figure out who actually owns gold and silver bars (with great analysis from ZeroHedge), I feel it is necessary to post the video clip below for everyone’s benefit.

“Too Fast To Stop” – Hank Paulson On What Happens When A Bank Run Results From Terrified Depositors (You) Who Start Withdrawing All Of Their Cash. Take 1min 12secs out of your life and watch this video clip from Too Big To Fail in which Treasury Secretary Paulson explains to his wife how fast it might all collapse

Only 58% Of Americans Have A Job Today … What It Will Take To Fix It

Posted by AGORACOM at 2:03 AM on Thursday, October 13th, 2011

Until this trend changes, the US economy is moving closer to 1960 than 2000.  What will it take to turn this trend around? A combination of the following:

  • Banks need to start lending to small business
  • Corporations need to start spending some of their cash
  • Congress needs to provide fiscal stimulus that focuses on small business and large infrastructure
  • Congress and / or the Fed need to unclog the real estate market = incentives for banks and borrowers to take their medicine and finally part with dead real estate

Jeffrey Sachs, Economist and Harvard Professor, Speaks The Truth At Occupy Wall Street

Posted by AGORACOM at 11:41 PM on Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

You simply need to listen to Obama supporter, Economist, Harvard Professor.   If you need to review his qualifications, see the Wikipedia entry below …. but watch the video first and take my word for it.  Here are just some of the things he had to say, which aren’t original but carry much more weight given his status.  I love the fact he expressed them on the fly during a media scrum at OccupyWallStreet …. The man needs to run for President:

  • The White House, Congress and The Senate Are Bought And Paid For
  • Get The Money Out Of Politics IF You Want Democracy Back
  • Obama Looked Like He Was Going To Change This Until He Put Wall Street Into The White House
  • He Hired The Team That Created The Mess To Begin With
  • Sachs Supported Obama In The Last Election
  • Obama Is Raising A $1 Billion War Chest For Re-Election
  • The People Need To Use Social Media To Effect Change As Fast And As Wide As Possible
  • Especially Since American Politicians Don’t Have A Clue About Social Media And Can Be Exploited
  • Who Watches TV Anymore Anyway

Jeffrey David Sachs (pronounced /ˈsæks/; born November 5, 1954, in Detroit, Michigan) is an American economist and Director of The Earth Institute at Columbia University. One of the youngest economics professors in the history of Harvard University, Sachs became known for his role as an adviser to Eastern European and developing country governments in the implementation of so-called economic shock therapy during the transition from communism to a market system or during periods of economic crisis. Some of his recommendations have been considered controversial. Subsequently he has been known for his work on the challenges of economic development, environmental sustainability, poverty alleviation, debt cancellation, and globalization.

Sachs is the Quetelet Professor of Sustainable Development at Columbia’s School of International and Public Affairs and a Professor of Health Policy and Management at Columbia’s School of Public Health. He is Special Adviser to United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon, and the founder and co-President of the Millennium Promise Alliance, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending extreme poverty and hunger. From 2002 to 2006, he was Director of the United Nations Millennium Project’s work on the Millennium Development Goals, eight internationally sanctioned objectives to reduce extreme poverty, hunger, and disease by the year 2015. Since 2010 he has also served as a Commissioner for the Broadband Commission for Digital Development, which leverages broadband technologies as a key enabler for social and economic development.[1] He is a member of the scientific committee of the Fundacion IDEAS, Spain’s Socialist Party’s think tank.

He has authored numerous books, including The End of Poverty and Common Wealth, both New York Times bestsellers and his latest book The Price of Civilization released on October 4, 2011. He has been named one of Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People in the World” twice, in 2004 and 2005.

VIDEO – Peter Schiff: Last Friday Marked Start Of Next Gold Bull Phase

Posted by AGORACOM at 7:32 AM on Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

Great video by Peter Schiff who is always worth watching when he speaks. He accidentally states “November 2nd” as opposed to September 2nd at the outset – but unless he grabbed a flux capacitor from Michael J Fox and taped this Back In The Future, you can bet this is recent and hot off the press.

In addition to gold, he’s got some great commentary about US Treasuries, PIMCO and the US economy as a whole.


My Comment On Obama Set To Go After Banks Scores High With Zero Hedge Readers

Posted by AGORACOM at 9:17 AM on Friday, September 2nd, 2011

ZeroHedge readers seem to be in unanimous agreement with my above noted comment (22 – 0) regarding this report that Obama and the Feds are about to open up a can of whoop-ass on the banks:

To be clear, despite the fact I’m conservative in both my economics and politics, I was a supporter of Obama on the hope he could restore some humanity to the political process after “W” and his crew drove the world to the brink.

Unfortunately, Obama’s failure to go after big banks and Day 1 (when he was in their pocket) … only to turn on them now in a desperate attempt to save his Presidency, serves to prove that people have virtually no hope of having any politicians serve in their best interest …. and that some kind of revolution will take place within my lifetime as people get used and pushed to the brink.

My disappointment will only be subdued by what another reader said best:

So it’s come down to cannibalization among the government and banking elites.

Let the games begin … the next 14 months are going to be wild.
