Jason K. Roberts – Florida Real Estate Market Still Strong

from Financial Survival Network

Jason K. Roberts has been making his fortune buying and selling distressed real estate for more than two decades. Right now he says the place to be is Florida.

While the worst of the real estate collapse may be over, and we don’t know for sure, there’s still lots of bargains in the Sunshine State.

Jason has developed a system for finding them. He likes properties in that $100k range where the demand is robust. He sees nothing but blue skies ahead.

Andrew Hoffman – The The Amtrak Economy

from Financial Survival Network

Andrew Hoffman is back on the program. Get the details on:

  • Fed minutes today!
  • Have to be more dovish, as Yellen Reversal approaches
  • Commodities crashing anew (base metals down 10% in last two days)
  • CRB index approaching March 2015 (and late 2008) lows, even with oil up $16!
  • Oil falling
  • Dollar surging (commodities plunging)
  • ECB essentially increased QE yesterday, and PBOC started theirs
  • Horrible economic data, starting with 1Q GDP and now 2Q looking horrible (and way above “consensus”)
  • Need to give “guidance” for June meeting, with all these horrible factors occurring
  • Not to mention, the continued “tectonic market shifts” – as rates continue to rise, and it appears, as I suggested, to be due to Chinese Treasury selling (very ominous)
  • Grexit potentially by early June, as extention (and cash) run out

DOJ Calls Out UBS Rap Sheet; Ignores Homegrown Citigroup’s Rap Sheet

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens
Wall Street on Parade

When the U.S. Department of Justice held its press conference on Wednesday to announce that five mega banks were each pleading guilty to a felony charge, paying big fines and being put on probation for three years, Assistant U.S. Attorney General Leslie Caldwell specifically took a battering ram to the reputation of Swiss bank, UBS.

Four banks — Citicorp, a unit of Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase & Co., Royal Bank of Scotland and Barclays — pleaded guilty to an antitrust charge of conspiring to rig foreign currency trading while UBS pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud for its earlier involvement in rigging the interest rate benchmark, Libor.

In explaining why the Justice Department was ripping up the non-prosecution agreement it had negotiated with UBS in December 2012 over its involvement in the Libor fraud and now charging it with a felony, Caldwell delivered a scathing attack on UBS, stating:

Why Most Gold Bugs Are Dead Wrong

by Ed Steer, Editor, Gold & Silver Daily
Casey Research

I’m doing something a bit different in addition to today’s Gold & Silver Daily

I consider Jim Rickards to be one of the brightest minds in the financial markets today. He’s worked with many of the largest financial institutions and government agencies—and as you know, he’s also written two New York Times best-sellers about the problems with today’s monetary system: Currency Wars and The Death of Money.

In today’s piece, Jim explains why one of the most dearly held beliefs of gold bugs is simply not true.

It was originally published in the May issue of Jim Rickards’ Strategic Intelligence.

I hope you enjoy.

Common Sowell Sense

by Monty Pelerin
Monty Pelerin’s World

Despite the portrayal by the medSowellia and Democrat Party, blacks are not homogeneous in their views. Anger in the black community is not uniform as demonstrated in this video criticizing Michelle Obama for her recent comments at Tuskegee University. Alfonzo Rachel, unknown to me, is responsible for the criticisms. Given the Thomas Sowell tee shirt he was wearing, I thought he might make sense, as in common Sowell sense.

He criticized Ms. Obama for violating Booker T. Washington’s (the founder of Tuskegee University) principles. An example different from the one Mr. Rachel cited in his video is the following:

I shall allow no man to belittle my soul by making me hate him.

But “making me hate him” is the very heart of identity politics. It is the basis of Barack Obama’s political success and an integral part of his continued popularity.

Gold and 3 Squirrels, 2 Vultures, and 1 Turtle

by Gary Christenson
Deviant Investor

Three squirrels frolicked in the back yard – they are social and fun loving creatures who delight us with squirrel antics and represent the distracted masses of people.

A hawk (markets can be deadly) killed a squirrel. Two vultures swooped in to feast on what remained after the hawk ate. The vultures represent High-Frequency-Traders and central banks. They produce nothing and feast on the efforts of the masses.

One turtle ambled through the yard, moving to a different lake. He was neither quick nor deadly, like the hawk, nor predatory like the vultures, but persistent. The turtle progressed slowly and reliably toward his goal – just as gold has been safe and reliable money for 5,000 years.

Perhaps the analogy is less than perfect, but we see parallels.

Yellen’s Speaking on Economic Outlook, But Focus May Be on the Past

by Steve Goldstein
Market Watch

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen is due to deliver a speech on the economic outlook later Friday, but there may be as much attention paid to what she says about the economic past.

The Commerce Department has reported first-quarter gross domestic product grew a scant 0.2%, but there’s a big debate over whether the government might have understated the performance.

That’s due to what’s called seasonal adjustment, which is the process for smoothing out data to see the underlying trends. Without seasonal adjustment, data would veer wildly — retail sales would surge in December, housing would collapse in the winter — making it hard to interpret.

Grand Central: ECB Turns Up Heat on Governments

by Brian Blackstone
Wall St Journal Blogs

It’s hard to be a pessimist in Sintra this weekend.

The sun is out and the temperatures warm at the site of the European Central Bank’s annual economic conference—now in its second year—near Portugal’s western coast. It’s essentially the ECB’s version of the Kansas City Federal Reserve’s more famous Jackson Hole conference that occurs in the late summer.

Mario Draghi set Friday’s sessions—dedicated to unemployment and inflation–off on a guardedly upbeat tone, saying things are better in the eurozone today than they have been since the onset of the global financial crisis in 2008.

IMF Rules Out ‘Quick and Dirty’ Greek Deal as Juncker Warns of Grexit ‘Indignity’

Christine Lagarde says she will not sign off on a piecemeal deal for cash-strapped Greece

by Mehreen Khan
Telegraph.co.uk

The International Monetary Fund has ruled out striking a “quick and dirty” deal with Greece, after European leaders failed to reach an agreement over the country’s future at a summit in Riga on Friday.

As Greece’s senior creditor, there have been fears the IMF is ready to pull the plug on another financial aid package unless a “comprehensive” agreement is reached with Athens soon.

Fund chief Christine Lagarde dismissed the prospect of a partial release of bail-out cash that would keep Greece solvent up until the autumn.

Austria Confirms Faith In Fiat Fading: Repatriates 110 Tons Of Gold From BOE

from Zero Hedge

Six months ago we warned that Austria was considering it, and now, as Kronen-Zeitung reports, with no rigged Swiss-like referendum required, Austrian Central Bank Governor, and the person many claim is in Mario Draghi’s inner circle of trust (soon to be revised) Edwald Nowotny has committed to repatriating 110 tonnes of gold. This is part of Nowotny’s new “gold strategy” and with his position (on paper) as one of Draghi’s foremost lieutenants, appears to be a big stab in the back for super money printing Mario.

While gold withdrawals from the NY Fed have been incessant over the past year…

The Great Un-Participation

by Dr. Jeffrey Lewis
Silver Coin Investor

[...] Of course, the common conceptualization of hyperinflation it is a pretty unacceptable exercise for most. We can only tolerate it from only safe distances. Indeed, everyone’s favorite image of what the aftermath will look like was just upgraded in the new Mad Max movie.

I’m always surprised to speak with someone ‘high net paper worth’ who has come around to gold and silver. It is most fascinating when a former believer in the status quo comes around to the other side. Even when they haven’t come all the way.

Recently, my friend characterized it all beautifully. Bank closures, credit system glitches, a market flash crashes. He pointed out the little systemic failures that are likely to occur along the way.

Three Ways “Old Money” Hangs On to Its Riches

by Jim Rickards
International Man

The international financial system is overdue for a collapse.

There may be extreme turmoil, but the world isn’t going to end. It’s just going to change… just as it did following previous collapses in 1914, 1939, and 1971.

But if you aren’t prepared, there’s a good chance your wealth could get wiped out.

It’s not something a cookie-cutter investment advisor can help you with. You need something more than ordinary investment skill.
