Danielle Park – Further Reflections From Someone Who Foresaw The Deflationary Shock

from Financial Survival Network

We’ve been speaking with Danielle Park for over three years now. In the beginning we were skeptical of her forecasts for the future. Now, to our surprise, we’re seeing them unfold much as Danielle predicted. How did this come this come pass? How did she perceive the Black Swans when they were circling off so far in the distant gloom? That’s a discussion in its own right, but for now Danielle tells us what she sees coming next and how you can profit from it. Lower oil and commodity prices, a lower Canadian Dollar and a higher US Dollar to name just a few. An interview you don’t want to miss.

Deflationary Indicators Yawn at Fed’s Growth Confidence

by Danielle Park
Juggling Dynamite

The jabbertalk parsers have rarely been in finer form than following yesterday’s latest Federal Reserve comedy hour. It is truly incredible to hear the Yellen-syllable analysis now engulfing the stock twits. Silliness aside, the fact remains: the Fed thinks it will begin hiking interest rates within the next 4 months. That would not just be ‘tapering’ but actual tightening my friends, and that is not bullish for today’s insanely valued financial assets.

There is much reason to doubt the Fed’s plan, of course. Their growth forecasts have been hopelessly optimistic with every single guess since 2007. And now, energy–the miracle driver of the anemic North American growth we have seen since 2009–is suffering body blows daily from a violent liquidity exodus likely just getting started.

What Will It Take to Be a Superpower in 2025?

by Charles Hugh Smith
Of Two Minds

The solutions organized by the superpower become the dominant global system because they are far more effective, efficient, flexible and sustainable than the solutions organized by other nations and trading blocs.

There’s a popular geopolitical parlor game called Who will be the next superpower?

While the game excels at triggering a mind-fogging tsunami of nationalistic emotions, it doesn’t shed much light on the really consequential question: What is power?

These are important questions to ponder as, around the world, unsustainable policies from the 20th century are beginning to fail in earnest. What will the future geopolitical landscape look like in their aftermath?

Japan Considering Exit Tax to Leave the Country

by Martin Armstrong
Armstrong Economics

The trend on a global basis is getting really scary. Our forecasts have been computer generated and are by no means my PERSON opinion of what I would like to see. This is getting to be really horrible as government simply go after more and more money without any consideration what happens when you have extorted everyone and there is nothing left? Japan is now moving to become the latest country to consider taxing wealthy individuals who move abroad to take advantage of lower rates or to simply guard their freedom.

Governments look upon the people as the great unwashed. We were born to serve their special interests and have no rights even to exist.

Renewed Sanctions Against Russia

EU Backtracking, US Belligerent

The EU is recently backtracking somewhat from its confrontational stance against Russia. Not only has JC Juncker recently announced that he is actually for building South Stream after all, the German language version of Reuters reports that “Berlin is sending conciliatory signals to Moscow”.

The reasons for this more conciliatory stance are easy to discern. For one thing, the truce in Eastern Ukraine is holding up quite well now. A complete split of Donetsk and Lugansk from the Ukraine is no longer on the agenda, at least it doesn’t appear to be. At the same time, we can be absolutely certain that Ms. Merkel has been getting more than an earful from German industrialists and bankers, all of whom are suffering Russia-related losses now and are afraid that more losses are in the pipeline.

‘If you are a fiduciary, the decision is easy.’

Especially if you take the duties of a fiduciary for other people’s assets seriously.

What about the fiduciary responsibilities of central banks? Hard to say, right?

We’ll get right on that– in about seven years. Jawohl! And no need for an audit. We believe.

Junk Bonds Are Going To Tell Us Where The Stock Market Is Heading In 2015

by Michael Snyder
The Economic Collapse Blog

Do you want to know if the stock market is going to crash next year? Just keep an eye on junk bonds. Prior to the horrific collapse of stocks in 2008, high yield debt collapsed first. And as you will see below, high yield debt is starting to crash again. The primary reason for this is the price of oil. The energy sector accounts for approximately 15 to 20 percent of the entire junk bond market, and those energy bonds are taking a tremendous beating right now. This panic in energy bonds is infecting the broader high yield debt market, and investors have been pulling money out at a frightening pace. And as I have written about previously, almost every single time junk bonds decline substantially, stocks end up following suit. So don’t be fooled by the fact that some comforting words from Janet Yellen caused stock prices to jump over the past couple of days. If you really want to know where the stock market is heading in 2015, keep a close eye on the market for high yield debt.

Global Gold Rush To Intensify As Currency Wars Rage & China Moves To Dominate World

from King World News

Today a legend who was recently asked by the Chinese government to give a speech to government officials in China warned King World News that the global gold rush is now set to intensify as currency wars rage and China moves to dominate the world. John Ing, who has been in the business for 43 years, also warned that more Western central banks will move to repatriate their gold as faith is lost in the United States government.

By John Ing of Maison Placements

December 19 (King World News) – Policymakers continue to take the easy option of running massive budgets and current account deficits, racking up record large amounts of debt hidden beneath the market’s buoyancy. This is wrong. The disconnect between the record stock prices and the economic realities on the other hand cannot last. It is not so different this time….

Currency Fluctuations and Troubled Global Economy to Drive Gold Higher

by Moe Zulfiqar BAS
Profit Confidential

There are too many analysts who are concerned about deflation, a period during which the price of general goods declines. Because of this, analysts are not too keen on gold. They say the yellow metal is only good for one’s portfolio when there’s inflation. When prices are declining, it’s not really worth anything. I beg to differ, though.

While I’m not denying there are deflationary pressures building up, this negative take on gold may just be proven wrong. Certainly time will tell more, but I say this because of two main reasons:

  1. Volatility in the currency market
  2. A global economic slowdown

These two factors will drive gold prices higher.
