Bo Polny – Have Faith In Gold & Silver

from Financial Survival Network

Bo Polny was back explaining why the recent lows in precious metals will have no affect upon the longer trend which is determinedly headed higher. The stock market and the dollar will eventually tell the story of gold and silver. Bo says there’s a very important shorting point coming up later this year. So in conclusion, don’t lose hope, gold and silver are headed much higher. The low appears to be in and now it’s just sit back and wait for higher prices.

Mickey Fulp – Monthly Major Market Review for July 2015

from Financial Survival Network

Mickey Fulp, the Mercenary Geologist, joined us today for a review of July’s Major Markets. July was an extremely volatile month for Energy, Metals and everything else but the US Stock Markets. We all know about the hit precious metals took, especially gold and silver. WIT was down even more. Bitcoin has been up 10 percent for two months in a row. Copper was killed falling to levels not seen in years. There’s no reason to panic, but remain cautious and ready for opportunities that may rapidly emerge. Mickey doesn’t see another 2009 Crash happening, but prices have gone down considerably, with WTI breaking $50 per barrel. The Shanghai Correction has investors acting very scared. If it continues, then we’ll have to change our assessment.

Billary Clinton and the Perfection of Consumerist Narcissism

by Charles Hugh Smith
Of Two Minds

In this perfection of consumerist narcissism, the only goal is maximizing private gain by whatever means are available.

I don’t think it’s coincidence that Bill Clinton’s presidency and Christopher Lasch’s landmark analysis The Culture of Narcissism: American Life in an Age of Diminishing Expectations both date from the same year, 1993.

Clinton solidified the modern presidency’s narcissistic obsession with public approval (the political equivalent of “likes” on Facebook) and the exploitation of that popularity for maximum self-enrichment.

The relentless charm offensive and rapacious exploitation of Billary’s proximity to power has yielded a fortune once reserved for tech titans and hedge fund superstars:

Why the Fed Will NOT Raise Rates

by Rick Ackerman
RickAckerman.com

You’ve come to the right place if your eyes roll back whenever you hear pundits wonder aloud which month the Fed is finally going to raise interest rates. In these precincts, the answer to that question for years has been an emphatic “NEVER!!” Yes, we know, “never” is a long time; eventually we’re bound to be wrong. But until that day arrives, we can boast that no economist in America has predicted Fed behavior more accurately than we have. The reason we’ve gotten it right and the eggheads continue to get it wrong is that most of them view the Fed not merely respectfully, but reverently, taking every syllable of drivel that passes the Fed chairman’s lips as holy writ. We, on the other hand, think the central bankers are a bunch of pompous quacks who couldn’t run a lemonade stand, much less a global banking system.

Gold Is Going Down But …

by Monty Pelerin
Monty Pelerin’s World

Gold is going down but it may have the last laugh.

I am not a gold bug. I am a dollar bear. That is, I believe that the dollar is in jeopardy even if it might currently be the best horse in the fiat glue factory. Likewise, financial assets seem outrageously overpriced and likely due for a correction that might be of historic magnitude.

[...] During the first decade of this new century, there were two down drafts in the S&P 500 index both of which exceeded 50%. No other decade save the Great Depression in the 1930s had anything comparable. Since our so-called great recession the economy has not reverted to its normal robustness. Yet, stock prices hover around all-time highs and commodities near recent historic lows. ZIRP (zero interest rate policy) inflates all financial assets. One would think the same would happen with some commodities, particularly gold and silver which many investors consider true money, or at least safer than fiat currency backed by increasingly empty government promises.

Legal and Academic Equality Nonsense

by Walter E. Williams
LewRockwell.com

A particular act or policy might not have a discriminatory intent, but that doesn’t let you off the hook. If it has a disproportionately negative impact on so-called protected classes, it is said to have a disparate impact and risks being prohibited by law. The uninformed assumption made by judges, lawyers and academics is that but for the fact of racial and sex discrimination, we all would be distributed across occupations, educational backgrounds and other socio-economic characteristics according to our percentages in the population. Such a vision is absolute nonsense. There is no evidence, anywhere, at any time, that but for the fact of discrimination, there would be proportional representation among various socio-economic characteristics. Let’s look at some disproportionalities, with an eye toward discovering the causes and then deciding what to do about them.

NYPD to Launch Future Crime Unit

by Philippe Gastonne
The Daily Bell

Predictive policing, an unproven and controversial data-mining method intended to anticipate the location and participants or victims in future crimes, is now an integral part of the largest police department in the United States. During a recent panel, New York City Police Commissioner William Bratton declared that predictive policing “is the wave of the future,” and that “the ‘Minority Report’ of 2002 is the reality of today.”

Bratton’s remarks, which are the most candid he has been about the department’s use of data mining, came during a discussion about Big Data, hosted by The New York Times, with editor Charles Duhigg and former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Margaret Hamburg.

“There are no secrets. There are none. If two people share a piece of information, it is no longer secret,” Bratton said in response to a question by Duhigg regarding the risks of data collection.

New York police are “data mining huge amounts of information and developing algorithms that will effectively mine that data in many ways the human brain cannot,” said Bratton, referring to the department’s trawling of social media and crime data, as well as other information gathered by city agencies, to predict where public safety threats could arise. The department’s Intelligence Division and anti-gang units already monitor social media accounts of people suspected of criminal activity, as well as those considered at risk of falling victim to violent crime. – Reveal News, July 31, 2015

New York City Police Commissioner William Bratton, never a privacy zealot, now just denies the whole concept. “There are no secrets,” he says. We will remember that next time one of his officers kills an unarmed citizen. If he’s serious, the investigation will have no secrets.

The Answer to the Biggest Riddle in the Markets Right Now

from Casey Research

The biggest homebuilder in the country just hit a nine-year high.

D.R. Horton (DHI), which sells more homes than any other homebuilder in the US, just announced outstanding second-quarter results. The company sold 2,180 (or 22%) more homes than it did during the same period last year. And it sold them for 7% more, on average, than a year ago. Revenues rose 37% in total from last year.

D.R. Horton’s share price jumped 3.2% on the news. It’s now up 17% this year to its highest price since 2006, before the housing crisis crushed homebuilders.

D.R. Horton’s CEO said the housing market is steadily improving:

Crashing: Apple, Twitter, Oil, Commodities, Greek Stocks, Chinese Stocks

by Michael Snyder
The Economic Collapse Blog

The month of August sure has started off with a bang. Tech stocks are crashing, oil is crashing, industrial commodities are crashing, Greek stocks crashed the moment that the Greek stock market reopened for trading, and Chinese stocks continue to crash. At this point we have not seen a broad crash of U.S. stocks yet, but it is important to note that the Dow is already down more than 700 points from the peak in May. If it continues to slide like it has in recent days, it won’t be too long before we will officially reach “correction” territory. Just a few days ago, I described August as a “pivotal month“, and so far that is indeed turning out to be the case.

A full-blown financial crisis has not erupted yet, but we are well on the way. In this article, I want to look at a few of the “crashes” that are already happening…

This Is Your “New Economy”: These 10 Startups Are Valued At $156 Billion On $4 Billion In Revenue

from Zero Hedge

If one had to summarize the “new economy”, which supposedly this time is different than the last time the US had a “new economy”, in just one chart, it would be the following one which lists the 10 biggest “unicorns”, or startups worth more than $1 billion, a list headed by Uber (which last week reported its latest record valuation of $51 billion, up from $17 billion exactly one year ago), and continuing with names which are more a marketing gimmick than an actual business model.

A few quick observations: the top 10 highest valued companies have a combined private valuation of $156 billion, on just about $4 billion in revenues and employ a whopping 19.5 thousand people.
