Last on gold is $937.00

The following was picked up today from the ECU stock page of agoracom.com in Canada. Sorry Mike, an easy link not possible.

Former Assistant Treasury Secretary, Paul Craig Roberts, again pens an excellent article below on the true state of affairs. He even pegs gold manipulation..."The price of one ounce of gold coins is $1,000 despite efforts of the US government to hold down the gold price."

There's Nothing Left To Recover - What Economy?

Paul Craig Roberts

July 16, 2009

There is no economy left to recover. The US manufacturing economy was lost to offshoring and free trade ideology. It was replaced by a mythical “New Economy.”

The “New Economy” was based on services. Its artificial life was fed by the Federal Reserve’s artificially low interest rates, which produced a real estate bubble, and by “free market” financial deregulation, which unleashed financial gangsters to new heights of debt leverage and fraudulent financial products.

The real economy was traded away for a make-believe economy. When the make-believe economy collapsed, Americans’ wealth in their real estate, pensions, and savings collapsed dramatically while their jobs disappeared.

The debt economy caused Americans to leverage their assets. They refinanced their homes and spent the equity. They maxed out numerous credit cards. They worked as many jobs as they could find. Debt expansion and multiple family incomes kept the economy going.

And now suddenly Americans can’t borrow in order to spend. They are over their heads in debt. Jobs are disappearing. America’s consumer economy, approximately 70% of GDP, is dead. Those Americans who still have jobs are saving against the prospect of job loss. Millions are homeless. Some have moved in with family and friends; others are living in tent cities.

Meanwhile the US government’s budget deficit has jumped from $455 billion in 2008 to $2,000 billion this year, with another $2,000 billion on the books for 2010. And President Obama has intensified America’s expensive war of aggression in Afghanistan and initiated a new war in Pakistan.

There is no way for these deficits to be financed except by printing money or by further collapse in stock markets that would drive people out of equity into bonds.

The US government’s budget is 50% in the red. That means half of every dollar the federal government spends must be borrowed or printed. Because of the worldwide debacle caused by Wall Street’s financial gangsterism, the world needs its own money and hasn’t $2 trillion annually to lend to Washington.

As dollars are printed, the growing supply adds to the pressure on the dollar’s role as reserve currency. Already America’s largest creditor, China, is admonishing Washington to protect China’s investment in US debt and lobbying for a new reserve currency to replace the dollar before it collapses. According to various reports, China is spending down its holdings of US dollars by acquiring gold and stocks of raw materials and energy.

The price of one ounce gold coins is $1,000 despite efforts of the US government to hold down the gold price. How high will this price jump when the rest of the world decides that the bankruptcy of “the world’s only superpower” is at hand?

And what will happen to America’s ability to import not only oil, but also the manufactured goods on which it is import-dependent?

When the over-supplied US dollar loses the reserve currency role, the US will no longer be able to pay for its massive imports of real goods and services with pieces of paper. Overnight, shortages will appear and Americans will be poorer.

Nothing in Presidents Bush and Obama’s economic policy addresses the real issues. Instead, Goldman Sachs was bailed out, more than once. As Eliot Spitzer said, the banks made a “bloody fortune” with US aid.

It was not the millions of now homeless homeowners who were bailed out. It was not the scant remains of American manufacturing--General Motors and Chrysler--that were bailed out. It was the Wall Street Banks.

According to Bloomberg.com, Goldman Sachs’ current record earnings from their free or low cost capital supplied by broke American taxpayers has led the firm to decide to boost compensation and benefits by 33 percent. On an annual basis, this comes to compensation of $773,000 per employee.

This should tell even the most dimwitted patriot who “their” government represents.

The worst of the economic crisis has not yet hit. I don’t mean the rest of the real estate crisis that is waiting in the wings. Home prices will fall further when the foreclosed properties currently held off the market are dumped. Store and office closings are adversely impacting the ability of owners of shopping malls and office buildings to make their mortgage payments. Commercial real estate loans were also securitized and turned into derivatives.

The real crisis awaits us. It is the crisis of high unemployment, of stagnant and declining real wages confronted with rising prices from the printing of money to pay the government’s bills and from the dollar’s loss of exchange value. Suddenly, Wal-Mart prices will look like Nieman Marcus prices.

Retirees dependent on state pension systems, which cannot print money, might not be paid, or might be paid with IOUs. They will not even have depreciating money with which to try to pay their bills. Desperate tax authorities will squeeze the remaining life out of the middle class.

Nothing in Obama’s economic policy is directed at saving the US dollar as reserve currency or the livelihoods of the American people. Obama’s policy, like Bush’s before him, is keyed to the enrichment of Goldman Sachs and the armament industries.

Matt Taibbi describes Goldman Sachs as “a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentless jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money.” Look at the Goldman Sachs representatives in the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations. This bankster firm controls the economic policy of the United States.

Little wonder that Goldman Sachs has record earnings while the rest of us grow poorer by the day.

I can't help but notice the parallel between the languishing gold price of the past recent doldrums ten years ago (280-320) and today's languish of 800-980....

It seems like the pull of the rubber-band: the stronger the pull, the bigger the snap.

The following link is to a recent interview of Jim Rogers by Fox News. Aside from the interview, how much longer can government revenues shrink while it continues to expand our debt to unprecedented levels? It must be nice to have a printing press in your basement but what will be the ultimate cost to you and I?

JPM & Snowwhite
posted on Jul 01, 09 10:18AM

The OCC derivatives report Q1 2009 Table 9 on page 30 shows that the Fed’s conduit, JPM increased its Gold derivatives exposure by $10 Billion in Q1 vs Q4 ’08 to a mindboggling 79% of all outstanding Gold derivative contracts -> $92 billion or 100 million ounces.

In Silver (precious metals) JPM holds 56% of all Silver derivatives ($4.6 Billion or 338 million ounces) vs 48% in Q4. In addition the JPM current net silver short position on the Comex should be approx. 200 million ounces. This vs an annual world-wide supply of 888 million ounces. The paper ETF SLV claims to hold 280’500’000 Silver ounces (8724 tons). The Custodian “Surprise” is JPMorgan. https://ebts.jpmorgan.com/ebtsWebMod/ebts_downloads/BONYBARLIST.PDF

A Conflict of interest between these positions and at the same time being the custodian for the SLV shareholders is manifest. There is no written guarantee whatsoever that SLV’s silver claims on the physical silver inventory is not encumbered by one party or another. One has to be gullible to ignore the coincidence. Manipulating the price of silver with this kind of massive dominance is child's play.

Barclays, the current ETF owner predicting a silver price of $12 towards the end of the year should not surprise anyone either, they wish to fill their obligations at a discount.

Gold is holding it's own,with India exporting for the first time?and not importing much with President pushing through a 400 ton IMF sale & all the scrap sales I am surprised gold is not going down.I am still buying miners and doing well with most of them and will continue through the Summer along with some physical gold & silver.
The U.S. does hold the most gold but who's gold is it & how much do we really have if they will not let audits take place, the people of the United States of America's gold could already be gone.

Dear Comrades In Golden Arms,


There is no better proof that we are getting extremely close to the Armstrong/Alf point of lift off than the violence of the shorts in their desire to cover both in paper gold and the long suffering junior gold shares.

The method used is to increase the short position now while we are waiting for the uptick rule to be reinstated all while driving a bulldozer of selling into markets. This selling is not to sell shares as much as it is to make a grandstand play to shake the confidence out of the bulls.

This type of strategy in paper gold today and many of the highly shorted junior gold shares is to ignite the passion of fear in holder's hands, therein allowing the shorts to make cover.

Call or email your company and inquire about their fundamental position. If it is good, then be sure you are witness to a strategy that is as old as markets themselves. This strategy is used by bulls to run shorts, and shorts to make cover depending on the circumstances.

In my opinion we are very close now to the best and longest move upwards in the gold market.

Gold is going to $1650 and then on to Alf's numbers.

The US dollar has nowhere to go as its support here has been only algorithms and coordinated statements of support, but actions to the contrary by the BRICs.

Stay the course.

Sincerely,
Jim (Sinclair) http://www.jsmineset.com

The last on gold is $926.50. The banksters are feeling smug today with another manipulative feat. Why does the CFTC permit such a high illegal concentration of current short selling in gold and silver by two or three US banks???? The responsibility to the people by the government to insure fair play in markets was abandoned a long time ago.

The banks involved in setting prices for gold and silver are are criminals with no one in government brave enough to prosecute their own bosses except Ron Paul and possibly, a few others.

I have included a link to a remarkable effort by Martin Armstrong to awaken the people through his recent works in the essay entitled, Anatomy Of A Debt Crisis with special emphasis on the past reforming accomplishments of Julius Caesar during Rome's financial period of crisis.

Mike and Rick will find the content of Martin's report quite enlightening as it proves that incompetent judges along with incompetent politicians continue to make matters worse for the people in a historical repeating cycle of greed and lust for power.

Concerning the CFTC's lack of interest to police the two or three large US banks that are heavily shorting gold and silver, precious metal holders should remain confident that sooner or later, on a daily bssis, this phantom selling campaign will end.

THE CASE FOR GOLD

A RECIPE FOR DISASTER
June 12th, 2009 by Egon von Greyerz


Take the following ingredients:
A banking system which is on the verge of collapse
Add a few $ trillion of government liquidity and guarantees
Inject $ 100’s of billions in loans and capital
Keep all the bank management that have caused the crisis
Pay them astronomical bonuses because otherwise they might be snapped up by a bankrupt competitor
Change the method for valuing the banks toxic and worthless assets so that they can publish hocus pocus increases in profits
Construct a stress test that all banks can pass, some with minor capital injection

Let some of the banks repay the government money to make the markets believe that the banking system has been saved and is sound
And what do you get?
A BANKING SYSTEM WHICH:


Is still on the verge of collapse
Is leveraged 25-50 times
Will go under with a 2-4% write off of total assets
Has loan books that are deteriorating at an alarming rate
Is not recognising or extrapolating the rapidly rising default rates
Has a high percentage of prime residential mortgages in negative equity
Has not provided for commercial property loan defaults with property values falling 40-50%
Has a high level of personal loans and credit card loans which will never be repaid

Has worthless paper assets which are valued at fantasy prices with the blessing of the government

Has $ 100’s of trillions of derivatives for which there is no market and with no reserves for losses
Is too big to fail

Will soon require more support

Will need $ trillions and probably tens of trillions to survive which governments will of course print

You think we have free markets, think again.

Some years back when Warren Buffett started to acquire a large position in silver through a Connecticut broker the shorts in the market cried to the CFTC about a growing concentrated position being manipulative and the CFTC took action. Now with three or fewer banks holding a concentrated and manipulative position in silver and gold the CFTC is fast asleep. I guess we know who is working for whom.

Bad News, Good News

By: Theodore Butler
copied from http://www.silverseek.com

The most recent Commitment of Traders Report (COT) was almost a replay of the prior week’s report. Very little net new speculative buying/dealer selling in silver, massive net speculative buying/dealer selling in gold. As of the close of business June 2, both COMEX gold and silver futures are at the largest total commercial net short position levels since last summer. While the silver concentrated short position is still at world record levels, the concentrated gold short position is more than notable.

According to the COT and the Bank Participation Report issued Friday, the level of concentration on the short side of gold increased dramatically. In fact, the Bank Participation Report indicated that three or fewer US banks held the largest concentrated net short position in COMEX gold futures on record, at over 123,000 contracts (12.3 million oz). Let me repeat that, three or fewer US banks held the largest short position in history. Let me tell you why that’s bad news.

For the umpteenth time, concentration and manipulation go hand in hand. You can’t have manipulation without a concentration. Period. Concentration is also dangerous to everyone; the markets, the regulators, innocent participants, even to the US banks so heavily short. That was the problem with AIG in the credit default swap debacle that almost sunk the financial system. They had too big of a concentrated position. This COMEX gold and silver short position is not on the same scale as AIG’s CDS position, but it is way too big and concentrated. It shouldn’t be allowed, especially by US banks, considering what havoc they have already wrought.

To those who insist that all this concentrated shorting by a very small number of US banks is just some type of aggregation of accounts doing legitimately hedging, let me explain why that is nonsense. The gold concentrated short position increased to a record level in just one month. At the exact same time, the published gold miner hedge position is at its lowest level in a decade. You can’t have a record large concentrated short position being a legitimate hedge when the hedge position is at a record low.

Let’s be honest. This record short position by two or three US banks was put on as an offset to speculative buying by technical hedge funds on the COMEX. It was no hedge, just a plain vanilla speculative short by the 2 or 3 US banks. They sold short because they were convinced they could eventually get the tech fund longs to liquidate at lower price levels and make a profit in the end. Normally, that might not be a problem, just some big speculative bets being made by big money institutions. But these aren’t normal times or normal conditions. The short selling by 2 or 3 big US banks has become so concentrated that it has crossed the manipulation line by a wide margin. Who died and left them the kings of price control?

Transparency is one thing, honesty is something else entirely. It’s laudable that the CFTC is so transparent in publishing the data that I reference. But what good is publishing the data if they are not going to be honest about what the data signifies? It is time for the CFTC to speak out on this issue. They have been investigating this issue of concentration for more than ten months now, their third silver investigation in five years. If they find nothing wrong in silver this time, unfortunately as the odds favor, there will be no additional silver investigations - until the silver market blows up. Then there will be a final silver investigation, trying to uncover why they didn’t see it coming.

That’s why it’s important to bring your concerns to the new chairman of the CFTC, Gary Gensler. Please give him the benefit of any doubt you might have about him fixing this problem. I have studied his public testimony and his background. He looks like the real deal - smart and aware of the important issues, like manipulation and speculative position limits. I just hope he can see that speculative position limits must apply to the big banks as well when they are, in fact, speculating. He is not responsible for the current manipulation in silver and gold and must be given a reasonable amount of time to resolve it. I’m sure he knows, better than anyone, that his time to resolve the problem is not unlimited. At some point fairly soon, if he doesn’t address this issue, it will become his problem.

There was some other interesting data in the recently released CFTC reports over the past three weeks. I was struck by the disparity between the increase in both the total net commercial short position and the concentrated short position of the largest traders in gold, and the lack of increase in both categories in silver. I get the feeling the big boys (JPMorgan) are very reluctant to expand their short position in silver, but have no such qualms in gold. At least, that’s what the data suggest to me. What does this mean?

Again speculating, my sense is that this is no accident. It has become increasingly obvious that the large concentrated short position in silver is manipulative and must be addressed. I can’t know if this has been initiated by JPMorgan or the CFTC or the exchange, but that’s not the important issue. Regardless of who or what may be prompting a move away from more concentrated short selling in silver, the results could be profound. If true, it would signify no less than the end of the manipulation itself.

That’s not to suggest that the big manipulative shorts are about to roll over and play dead. They are still powerful and dangerous and their short positions are large.. If the script plays out as usual, they will try to rig a sell-off and get the tech funds to puke up their long positions. Only this time, the big shorts seem to be relying more on gold price pressure to drag silver lower, rather than to load up on silver short positions to the extent they have in the past. I still don’t know if they will succeed or something may come along and blow up in their faces, but I’m pretty sure what they want to do.

It will be bad news, in one sense, if the big shorts succeed in manipulating gold and silver prices lower, forcing leveraged longs from the market. It’s like bullies in a school yard getting away with beating up the little kids. But it will also be good news if they clean out the tech funds, as it will present us with a low risk entry point, maybe the last one for a while.

Last on gold is $949.20.

A significant meeting will take place on June 16th in Kommersant, Russia between Brazil, Russia, India, and China to discuss the role of the Dollar in the global financial system amoung other issues. The acronym for this group is BRIC.

It's interesting that along with the emerging Brazil, Russia and China are recent buyers of gold while India's populace holds much more gold than others.

This upcoming meeting has to have monetary officials in the US spooked. What will be the outcome of the meeting?

In the meantime, gold's price has been weak for the past few days as these same officials, undoutedly, attempt to suppress its price in an attempt to kill the messenger and to a small degree, effect a lower gold price prior to this meeting.

Games, games and more games, greed is the key word here. How much more smoke and mirror manuevers are US officials still able to conduct? It's really silly when focusing in on the big picture, China will have the new world's reserve currency in just a matter of time as they continue to beef-up their gold holdings on weakness in preparation for that reality.

What we have been seeing lately in lower gold prices is just another aggressive attempt by US officials to make our massive debt load look unimportant. Martin Armstrong has stated many times that an increasing monstrous debt load of governments from the past has spelled their demise on a regular basis.

Manipulating gold lower with our heavy load of debt is just historical monetary nonsense and plays directly into the hands of the Chinese.

In the end we will all pay a heavy price for the many years of misguided gold manipulation when the metal is adjusted significantly upward by the market and possibly leaving the American people responsible for an empty Fort Knox and for the replacement of borrowed gold from the vaults of the NY Federal Reserve.

Last on gold is $954.60.

I prefer not commenting too much on daily price events concerning gold as we are in a major bull market and the daily ups and downs don't mean much. Today was especially interesting, the manipulators in a well planned assault hit gold as the two precious metal indexes, XAU & HUI, were right next to minor chart resistance.

Today's raid was no more than a psychological stab at investors to make them feel uneasy. The XAU was off 6.75 closing at 150.67, with resistance at 165. The HUI was off 19.20 closing at 367.82, with resistance at 400. Weakness soon developed in the mining shares when the COMEX miscreants started selling gold contracts from $980 all the way down to $957. Near the end of the session gold rallied some to $964 but in after hours trading they hit it again, taking it to a low on the day of about $952.

The Dollar strong advocates in Washington continue to depress gold as it approaches the $1000 level with all their creative smoke and mirror tactics including running up the US Dollar Index some. Unfortunately, we will all pay the ultimate price in more debt or our loss of more wealth resulting from a Dollar price dive when their day of reckoning finally arrives and the piper has to be paid. What do you think would happen if someday the free world had one currency and it was discovered that all our gold was gone? You have to be naive if you think we still have our gold that they say we have in various locations around the US. It wouldn't surprise me if our Treasury officials have sold some of the custodial gold for other countries that is being held for them in the vaults of the NY Federal Reserve. The greed to control the gold market over the years by these current and past officials may eventually destroy our civilization aided by the the growing possiblility that the government will sooner or later be unable to service the debt payments on our expanding IOU obligations.

Don't forget, China will buy gold into all declines with their vast reserves as they significantly increase their gold holdings in preparation for their currency becoming the new world reserve currency when the Dollar goes into a major crisis sometime in the near future as a result of too much debt.

I have posted below a link to an interesting article concerning silver ETF's(exchange traded funds). It's always been my contention that COMEX gold trading was created to sop up money away from buying physical gold along with the gold miners as well as why the gold and silver ETF's were created.

The article below points to the fact that ETF's in America are not to be audited. I believe, again, the silver ETF that was set-up by J.P. Morgan to divert precious metal investments away from physical mrtal and the silver miners.

When Bear Stearns imploded Geithner arranged for J.P. Morgan to take over their silver short position with a public guarantee that if Morgan suffered any losses from that position that the American people through the Treasury Department would cover them. This was all designed to prevent the Bear Stearns silver shorts from being covered while taking the market higher and probably influencing gold's price as well. It was soon after in the latter part of 2008 that the silver price was forced considerably lower along with gold by US banking interests in the midst of their crisis.

In the past I have mentioned Central Fund of Canada(CEF-ASE) which holds their shareholder funds in 50% physical gold and 50% physical silver. By the way, CEF IS AUDITED.

Bluejay is right.

This is debt without asset. It is also by design. The degradation of the dollar is not by accident, but by purpose. As stated, a banana-state (no republic intended) is the focus and intention.

The references cited by Bluejay and Kitco.com are real. It is no longer a fringe topic for a fringe group of "righties" who want Obama to fail. The numbers don't lie. There is no assest, and there is debt. There is no plan to pay the debt back, and there is a plan to watch the debt take hold of our freedom, personal property and Constitution.

Despite the monetary warning (which I missed last time and stayed in the market, yet knowing that my gut told me to get out and solidify my tiny asset base with hard-holding gold, still didn't)....this time I will.

Damn, that it is still tomorrow's task. I keep feeling the cool-aid, but I won't drink it. Tomorrow I will convert my assets to gold, real-live gold.

Simple Math.

"Honey, I think we're broke."
"Great! Let's go spend while we can!"

Last on gold is $980.30, following an early morning low of $960.00.

Copied below are pertinent comments made today b Monty Guild and Tony Danaher at http://www.Guildinvestment.com:

UNFORTUNATELY, THE U.S. HAS NO CHOICE. IT MUST CONTINUE TO PRINT MONEY AND DEBASE THE DOLLAR

China is positioning itself using a panoply of agreements that include allowing Chinese Yuan bond financing by Hong Kong banks, arranging trade related currency swap agreements with Brazil and six other countries, and working with countries and companies all over to world to lock up assets that it will need to run its production machine. China’s purchases include oil, coal, iron ore, nickel, and zinc to name a few. In short, China is buying assets worldwide –including an ever increasing share of the world’s gold supply — to stoke its economic machine in coming years.

China’s lust for gold is significant and deserves note. The fact is that China has been buying much more gold than it is producing. China is buying gold in the open market, willing to take gold off of the hands of the poorly managed IMF and central banks like Britain, who sold most of their gold at about $250 per ounce. Britain, the IMF, and others who have been, or will be, gold sellers appear to us to be operating with an excess of pompous verbiage and a shortage of common sense.

Gold will be an instrumental part of any new monetary system that is created in the world to succeed the current Breton Woods system. When the U.S. turns over power as the world’s reserve currency to China, it will be China’s large holdings of gold and large cash hoard which will make them a new monetary superpower. When that transition takes place, the old cliché about the golden rule, “Whoever holds the gold makes the rules” will be remembered for its wisdom.

On a side note, http://www.jsmineset.com carried an article today that stated household national debt is currently running at $545,688 and on the rise.

Very few people can grasp that our country is on the road to becoming another banana republic. Geithner and Bernanke lead by their financial handlers are selling out Americans. If the people can't stop them, one of your few hopes is holding gold and silver and the companies that produce it.

Heaven help us all.

The following interesting comments were picked up from the ECU forum page at Agoracom.com this morning:

JW: Hitmen hired to strike at crimex and lbme

Please read the entire article!

The HITMEN have been hired, with highly lucrative contracts and wide berth in methods to be put to use. Their assigned task is to castrate the levered family jewels from some of the major players who illegally keep the gold price and silver price artificially low. The targeted victims know their awaited fate, and are presently defecating in their skivvies. A short list of banks facing the firing squad is already known, details for Hat Trick Letter members. Some detailed speculation will be devoted to the June HTL reports, since too controversial. This will be an evolving story, with new chapters soon written. The executions will be sudden. The missing US-UK levers will be immediate. Since last autumn, the global powers have aligned against Wall Street, even if the central bankers have supported it. If one wants to destroy a building, then weaken its pillars, cut a few support beams, then rush in a crowd of people, and wait for a turbulent storm. In the case of the COMEX, the wicked players will crowd the corrupted building. They will sink into ruin and then oblivion. They might become objects of mockery when they make noises from prison. If lucky, they will join Ken Lay from Enron fame in a remote Caribbean island where other favored operators live a secluded life, but a life nonetheless, complete with plenty of sunshine, fresh air, beaches, bikinis, and sailboats, but no intrusive cameras. Please, do not disturb the quasi-dead!


The financial cartel dominated by the United States and United Kingdom is soon to suffer some serious blows. The list of their financial crimes is as magnificent as it is long. Its list of victims is as prominent as it is long. The harbored resentment is great by many global players. They waited patiently for the Obama Admin to install a new group, but the old group remains due to a revolving door from the same smoky club, dominated by Goldman Sachs once more. Their influence, if not bribery, of the USCongress is in continuation, sufficient for unwanted obsequious approval. The regulatory agencies are from the same encrusted chambers replete with stench. The Coup d’Etat of the USGovt financial offices has not changed with Obama, who sounds like a refreshing leader but who is actually a marionette under control by those who selected him, favored him with publicity, then enabled his election. Nothing has changed except the rhetoric of change and the pace on the path to bankruptcy for a few icon firms like General Motors and Chrysler, if not the desperate cries from the 50 states suffering from insolvency. More prominent failures will follow, since nothing has been remedied. The channeled funds directed to Wall Street firms continue unabated. The bread crumbs to Main Street and the people continue unabated. Even the war continues unabated. Forget not that Marie Antoinette once said “Let them eat cake” before the French Revolution and the Storming of the Bastille. Today, the Bastille is the entire USEconomy where insolvent Americans are stuck.

Last on gold this Memorial Day is $957.60

Jim Sinclair’s(jsmineset.com) Commentary

I have not read a better encapsulation of conditions nor have I seen a better reason to get insured immediately if you are not in gold. If you are not insured, prepare to suffer the extraordinary loss of lifestyle you are accustomed to, if not your existence itself.

Let’s call our writer "CIGA Pedro the Informed."

A View From Abroad by an American in Brazil

We are witnessing the end of a very long phase in history. As a result there is a mass insecurity amongst the dominant nations of the past 300-years that is bordering on hysteria. This insecurity manifests itself in many different ways and markets are reflecting this. Gold prepares to soar, reflecting this insecurity, as gold is a barometer of fear.

Within the English-speaking world it is evident that “foreigners” are to blame. In the UK it is both the Poles and the “Pakis”. In America it is initially revealed via a general population viewing the Kyoto Protocol as a Chinese-led trick to destroy our economy. Then it is the belief that Mexicans are “invading” and Arabs are trying to kill us all. One has to stop and ask what the root of this paranoia really is.

As the American power structure tries to prepare for “inevitable conflict” with world Islam (c.f. Huntington, Clash of Civilizations) it also tries to hide its obsequious relationship with the Saudi Royal Family, which is incestuous at best, and perhaps more symbiotic than most would want to know. The financial population cannot reconcile this anymore than they can the fact that (perhaps apart from Jim) the accurate, unblended analysis of this crisis seems to have been foreshadowed by a two people with names: Nouriel Roubini and Naseem Taleb. People remain confused by the fact that the American power structure lacks patriotism and seems to favor its own interests over the interests of the country. They lash out at everyone, including, now, their own leaders. People don’t know whether to “blame” Obama’s socialism or Bush’s self-serving capitalism. Their foreign policies seem different but the rest appears the same. Major banks appear to have more control than we thought….even while teetering on bankruptcy.

This is reflected in markets. Currencies gyrate wildly. As Jim has noted many times, anybody trying to fathom the FX markets and trade them is likely to be carried out of the pit on the proverbial trader’s stretcher with a coronary. First the Euro is finished – its break-down elucidating thoughts of its demise – but then the belief that jettisoning the PIGS (Portugal, Italy (Ireland?), Greece, Spain) might be causing it to rise. The markets are schizophrenic. They don’t know what to think. The dollar and sterling take the brunt. There are reasons for this.

This is a system headed for breakdown. The established historical order is drifting to a close, and nothing can stop it. Changes in policy are manifestations of history – alter it they cannot. Gold’s rise becomes inevitable as countries who have ruled the Imperial phase of history try and resist their diminishment in status. Markets are manipulated as they try and hold on to power, while history shifts under their feet. China and Brasil cut deals that don’t include the USA and UK…the UAE starts to view separate currency arrangements with Russia, foregoing overtures by Saudi Arabia for a Gulf wide (GCC-led) monetary regime. Riyadh’s relationship is too close to Washington. Washington is yesterday’s news. (So much for the conspiracy of Islam.)

The end of an era is upon us. That is the era of the Global hegemon. The first phase took place in Britain, the second in the Soviet Union, and the third in America. Fukayama’s theory of history’s end is immolated on its very alter. The debacle of Iraq, as well as Afghanistan stand as testimony. The dominant powers simply cannot draw borders they way they did at San Remo in 1920 or via the Red-lines which economically created Kuwait. We seem to be unsure if we should break Iraq up, or let it be unified. Is it even our business, or has history out-run us and we have failed to acknowledge it? As the global hegemon is characterized through the Imperial phase of history, now draws to a close, people stand confused and amazed. The rulers of the dominant nations appear ready to sell them out…and this appears as “news” to educated observers.

Nobody can be sure of any currency regime any longer. The markets gyrate wildly. As fear and insecurity mount, Gold prepares for take off.
