Jason Stevens – Upcoming Opportunities in Oil and Diamonds

from Financial Survival Network

Jason Stevens believes that the current low prices we’re seeing won’t last. He believes that oil will go back up to the $65-70 range within a matter of months and should stay there for quite a while, once the storage situation is worked off. Just low enough to keep out the marginal shale producers. As far as diamonds are concerned, prices are going up and mines are closing. Very few new mines are coming on stream. It takes many years to bring a new diamond mine into production. Therefore, the companies who are currently producing good quality stones can present great values.

Desperately Hoping for Inflation

from RickAckerman.com

[Following is a letter that my friend Doug Behnfield, a Colorado financial adviser whose thoughts have been featured here many times before, sent out to clients as the new year began. Doug is an unapologetic deflationist like your editor — a point of view that has served him very well in recent years. Although February has been a disappointing month for investors weighted in long-term bonds, as Doug has been, he sees them recovering, and yields falling even lower, as the U.S. economy fails to gain strength. For our part, Rick’s Picks has predicted a drop in long-term rates below 2%, and possibly as low as 1.63%. If so, those who hold certain long-term bonds stand to reap very substantial capital gains, since the longer the maturity, the more leveraged these assets are to even small changes in interest rates.

Breaking Bad (Debt) – Episode Three

by James Quinn
The Burning Platform

In Part One of this three part article I laid out the groundwork of how the Federal Reserve is responsible for the excessive level of debt in our society and how it has warped the thinking of the American people, while creating a tremendous level of mal-investment. In Part Two I focused on the Federal Reserve/Federal Government scheme to artificially boost the economy through the issuance of subprime debt to create a false auto boom. In this final episode, I’ll address the disastrous student loan debacle and the dreadful global implications of $200 trillion of debt destroying the lives of citizens around the world.

Litmus Test? REALLY?

by Karl Denninger
Market-Ticker.org

Cry me a river, so-called “Conservatives”…..

This spring will mark the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta, the landmark agreement by King John of England at Runnymede ceding certain rights to rebel barons. Liberty will have another chance to shine on Wednesday when the Supreme Court hears a case with momentous implications about another sort of executive power. In this instance, though, it is the rebels who have the royal name: King v. Burwell raises questions about how President Obama has enforced the ObamaCare law—or, more precisely, modified, delayed and suspended it.

This will be the third challenge to the Affordable Care Act to reach the court. But King is different. The law’s constitutionality was challenged in NFIB v. Sebelius, 2012, and the way certain regulations burden particular types of plaintiffs was addressed by Burwell v. Hobby Lobby last year. Now comes King, challenging the administration’s implementation of the law.

Yes, I know.

Man Who Predicted Collapse of Euro Against Swiss Franc Warns of Next Shock to the World

from King World News

Today the man who 90 days ago remarkably predicted the collapse of the euro against the Swiss franc warned King World News about the next shock that will bring the world to its knees.

Egon von Greyerz: “Eric, it’s now totally clear to me that the hyperinflation I’ve been expecting is becoming more persistent and is now engulfing country after country. We are already seeing it in the periphery but it’s on its way to engulfing the developed countries of the world….

Banker Bashing Wins Votes but Real Culprits Go Unpunished

British banks are an easy target for politicians but are these attacks puting the entire financial services industry at risk?

by Andrew Critchlow
Telegraph.co.uk

What is it with Britain’s favourite sport of banker-bashing? The latest attack came from the Liberal Democrats this weekend. The junior partner in the Coalition Government now wants to hit the nation’s lenders with an additional £1bn per year tax grab that will be used to eliminate the deficit.

If the Chancellor, George Osborne, won’t add the measure to this month’s Budget, it will form part of the party’s manifesto during the election.

According to the Treasury Secretary, Danny Alexander, banks were to blame for causing the financial crisis and they should continue to pay the price. I agree that someone has to take responsibility for the events which led up to the financial capitulation in 2008, but I entirely disagree that this has to be solely the burden of banks.

Could China Actually Have 30,000 Tonnes of Gold in Reserves?

Last year gold analyst, Alasdair Macleod, suggested that China had accumulated 25,000 tonnes of gold between 1982 and 2003.

by Lawrence Williams
Mine Web

My attention has just been drawn to a note put out by a very well respected analyst and China follower which postulates that China could actually be holding as much as 30,000 tonnes of gold in various government accounts and that within the next three years the nation will link the yuan to gold. The nation’s official holding is only 1,054.6 tonnes as reported to the IMF, but there is widespread belief that it has been accumulating additional gold over the past several years, perhaps to the tune of around 5,000 tonnes while holding this in separate non-reportable (as China considers them) accounts. But, of course, this does not include previously high volumes of gold which may also have been bought, and stored, in the past, and again never reported as official holdings.

Ten-Year-Old’s Perspective on Money, Taxes and Government

by Anthony Wile
The Daily Bell

Introduction: Julian is a typical young boy, with a clever sense of humor. He likes math more than science and loves sports more than most anything. Throughout his life he has been exposed to free-market concepts from his parents, his older brother and friends of the family, many of whom are well-known free-market thinkers. We sat down for an interview with him after a dinner-table conversation about an experience he’d had at school. The transcription that follows is unaltered from our original conversation.

Daily Bell: Welcome and thanks for doing this interview with The Daily Bell.

Jules: Thank you. It is an honour.

The caption at the bottom of the picture read: At a meeting of the Conservative Political Action Conference, an attendee holds photos of possible presidential candidates.

Outside the Box: Shovelin’ Schmitt Against the Tide

by John Mauldin
Gold Seek

There is an obsession in the marketplace over the date when the Fed will once again begin to raise rates. As if another 25 basis points is going to change the economics on tens of trillions of dollars of investments. But as we reflect on the issue more deeply, it becomes obvious that a minor bump in the fed funds rate will indeed change a great deal of economics all over the world.

No, it won’t do much to the cap rate on your latest real estate purchase, but it is likely to greatly affect the pricing of the currency and commodity markets. And those markets will affect corporate profits, which will affect the stock market. It’s all connected.
