Sam McElroy – Job Slow Down Ahead?

from Financial Survival Network

Sam McElroy is back… U.S. jobs and wages rose by less than forecast in November while the unemployment rate held at the lowest in almost five decades, indicating some moderation in a still-healthy labor market. Nonfarm payrolls increased by 155,000 after a downwardly revised 237,000 gain in the prior month, a Labor Department report showed Friday. The median estimate in a Bloomberg survey called for an increase of 198,000. Average hourly earnings rose 0.2 percent from the prior month, compared with forecasts for 0.3 percent, though wages matched projections on an annual basis, up 3.1 percent for a second month.Treasury yields initially dipped and the dollar declined as the report added to signs that economic growth is cooling a bit, following weakness in business-equipment orders and an ebbing of consumer optimism.

Al Caceido – Debt Bomb Getting Ready to Blow

Al is very concerned and believes that we will soon reach the tipping point. What will happen then is anyone’s guess, but it’s not going to be pleasant and a lot of promises will be broken.

Adam Mesh – Cannabis Sector Looking Even Better

from Financial Survival Network

Adam Mesh is feeling reassured by the recent market downturn. While the overall averages are flashing correction, many tech stocks are flashing bear market! His advice is buy the stocks, if you must, that showed strength during the downturn, not those showing weakness. In addition, he is very bullish on the Cannabis sector since Altria’s (f/k/a Phillip Morris) major investment. Adam believes it’s going to keep bloom into a leading sector. Otherwise caution is the byword.

Danielle Park – Whatever Happened to Ethics?

from Financial Survival Network

Danielle Park recalls when sound business and ethics used to go hand-in-hand. Now they’re distant cousins under the best of circumstances. Have we gone too far down the rabbit hole to ever return? Or perhaps it’s just part of a cycle. Speaking of cycles, we discuss electric vehicles and why they’re making so little progress in the global auto marketplace. Are the current crop of EV’s that are about to be released, designed to fail? Perhaps, but the future seems clear, some day EV’s will dominate.

John R. Lott – The Truth About Gun Free Zones

from Financial Survival Network

Dr. John R. Lott Jr., National Columnist and Top Selling Author, elaborates on Gun-Free Zones and gives his opinion on why they invite mass shootings. Gun-free zones are intended to reduce violent crime and mass shootings in specific locations. Did anyone ask the gunman if this is the case? Dr. John Lott explains most gunmen are smart enough to know that they can kill more people if they attack places where victims can’t defend themselves. That’s one reason why 98 percent of mass public shootings since 1950 have occurred in places where citizens are banned from having guns. Why aren’t more outlets catching on?

Jeff Clark – Gold and China, Perfect Together

from Financial Survival Network

Jeff Clark says that it’s no secret that China has been acquiring vast sums of gold over the past decade. He believes that when the true extent of their acquisitions is revealed it will lead to a major rally in precious metals prices. The Chinese have also been busy buying up and investing in mining projects around the globe. In addition, gold contracts on the Shanghai are settled in physical metal, which is further pulling gold out of the West. Taking all these factors into consideration, at some point the price of gold is almost certain to rise substantially.

He was having trouble making ends meet. It was a hellish experience that was life altering. However, rather than be defeated by this defeat, he used it as a learning experience.

Debt Worldwide Hits Record $184 Trillion, or $86,000 Per Person

by Katia Dmitrieva
Bloomberg.com

Global debt hit a record $184 trillion last year, equivalent to more than $86,000 per person — more than double the average per-capita income.

Borrowing is led by the U.S., China, and Japan, the three biggest economies, the International Monetary Fund said Thursday, highlighting potential risks to global expansion given that their share of debt exceeds that of output. Overall, the amount of worldwide public and private debt is equal to about 225 percent of gross domestic product.

The IMF debt figure is $2 trillion higher than the fund’s previous estimate released in October, adding end-2017 data and several countries that had not previously reported updated numbers. The agency uses data for 190 countries dating back to the 1950s.

by Sara Carter

The Clinton Foundation operated as a foreign agent ‘early in its life’ and ‘throughout it’s existence’ and did not operate as a 501c3 charitable foundation as required by its and is not entitled to its status as a nonprofit, alleged two highly qualified forensic investigators, accompanied by three other investigators, said in explosive testimony Thursday to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

It’s Official: The Federal Reserve is Insolvent

by Simon Black
Sovereign Man

In the year 1157, the Republic of Venice was in the midst of war and in desperate need of funds.

It wasn’t the first time in history that a government needed to borrow money to fight a war. But the Venetians came up with an innovative idea:

Every citizen who loaned money to the government was to receive an official paper certificate guaranteeing that the state would make interest payments.

Those certificates could then be transferred to other people… and the government would make payments to whoever held the certificate at the time.

The Yield Curve Flattens and Bank Stocks Plunge. Here’s the Connection, and the Prediction.

by John Rubino
Dollar Collapse

Despite all the ominous press being devoted to the soon-to-be-inverted yield curve, it’s not always clear why such a thing matters. In other words, how, exactly does a line on a graph slipping below zero translate into a recession and equities bear market, with all the turmoil that those things imply?

The answer (which is both simple and really easy to illustrate with charts) is that banks – the main driver of our hyper-finacialized society – still make at least some of their money by borrowing short and lending long. They take money that’s deposited into savings accounts and short-term CDs (or borrowed in the money markets) and lend it to businesses and home buyers for years or decades. In normal times long-term rates are higher than short-term to compensate lenders for tying their money up for longer periods. The banks earn that spread, which can be substantial if borrowers make their payments.

Neofeudalism Isn’t a Flaw of the System – It’s the System Working Perfectly

by Charles Hugh Smith
Of Two Minds

Fakery is always precarious: the truth about the asymmetries of power might slip out and spread like wildfire.

I’ve been writing about neofeudalism and its cousin neocolonialism for seven years:

500 Million Debt-Serfs: The European Union Is a Neo-Feudal Kleptocracy (July 22, 2011)

The E.U., Neofeudalism and the Neocolonial-Financialization Model (May 24, 2012)

The basic idea here is the socio-economic-political system is structured such that the only possible output is neofeudalism. In other words, neofeudalism isn’t a flaw in the system that can be changed with policy tweaks or electing a new president or PM– it’s the result of the system working as designed.

Market Report: Quiet Pre-Christmas Trade

by Alasdair MacLeod
Gold Money

Comex volumes for gold and silver have dropped off significantly this week, almost as if Christmas trading arrived early this year. The dwindling band of bulls suffered minor pain, with gold drifted $10 lower from last Friday’s close to trade at $1238.5 in morning trade in Europe. Silver fared better, up nine cents at $14.62.

Part of the reason for gold drifting aimlessly is the dollar’s trade-weighted index was firmer on the week, generally holding onto 97+ territory. However, as the next chart shows, it appears to be losing its bullish momentum.
