Fiat Money and the Euro Crisis / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn September I participated in the amazing Supporters Summit, held at the prestigious National Academy of Sciences in Vienna, where Eugen von Böhm-Bawerk once lectured. After my visit to Austria, I piggybacked an excursion to adjacent Slovakia where I was surprised to discover a large number of fans of the Mises Institute and Ron Paul.

Three Reasons the China Currency Bill Will Backfire / Politics / Fiat Currency

By: Money_Morning

David Zeiler writes: A Senate bill that aims to restore American jobs by punishing China for its undervalued currency may resonate with a frustrated American public, but it won't work.

In fact, instead creating jobs, the bill is more likely to trigger a damaging trade war with China and increase retail prices for Americans - further hurting the consumer spending that has already been undermined by high unemployment.

Yearning for a Currency Debaser’s Prison / Politics / Fiat Currency

By: Aftab_Singh

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUntil the mid-19th century, the means of retribution for the stiffed creditor was debtor’s prison. If the creditor could not see the return of his capital, then at least he could temper the pain and humiliation by witnessing the incarceration of the defaulted debtor. In our age of monetary lunacy, it would seem that some of the world’s more dollar-dependent central bankers are quietly (or perhaps not-so-quietly), yearning for a similarly harsh ‘debaser’s prison’. Here I speculate about the peculiar world of the dollar-dependent central banker and consider the consequences of the dearth of entrepreneurial spirit in the money production business.

How to Prepare for When Money Dies / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf dollar-dumping turns from a trickle into a flood, look out. Exploding prices (aka exorbitant inflation) resulting from the devaluation of the dollar will compound the problems we saw in 2007–2009. Catastrophe will come when everybody realizes that the dollar is an "IOU nothing." That's the downside in the decade(s) ahead, according to Casey Research Chairman Doug Casey. But an optimist at heart, in this exclusive interview with The Gold Report, Doug also identifies some reasons to be hopeful.

The Swiss Franc Ties Itself To The Collapsing Euro in Double Suicide / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Jeff_Berwick

These are grand times to be dollar vigilantes.

The whole premise of being a dollar vigilante is the acknowledgement that the entire global financial system is an artificial and oppressive system that is nearing the end of its road (and purchasing hard assets and internationalizing our assets to protect ourselves).

If you Debase the U.S. Dollar, you Debase them all… / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Aftab_Singh

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePraise the deposit. If only one thing in this world is to be guaranteed, let it be the holy financial instrument that is the commercial bank deposit. — Prayer 3:23, The Book of State-Banking

In recent years, the above prayer has been answered by the oh-so-benevolent monetary authorities of the West — we were ‘saved’ by the self-sacrificial debauchery of Western central banks. Alas, the commercial banker that owed what wasn’t his’n, wasn’t faced with the unappetizing prospect of buying it back or going to pris’n! Consequently, the question that repeatedly presents itself is: ‘Who got stiffed then?’

The Floating Exchange Rate System / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: George_Maniere

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article           In 1953, renowned economist Milton Freidman was the first man to propose the “floating exchange rate system.” In 1971 it became a reality as then President Nixon was trying to open trade with China. Friedman saw the floating exchange rate system as a way to even the playing field for the fortunes of every nation. Sadly, I see that the bigger governments have tried to obfuscate the free market trade as they want the whole pie for themselves.

Currency Collapse - Where Now ? / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne thing is sure and certain. Permanent avoidance of economic, financial and monetary reality has resulted in the USA, European Union and Japan facing unmanageable and self-reinforcing debt spirals that - logically - should lead to currency collapse. By political decision, the "only solution" is to decree harsh austerity plans cutting economic growth and government tax revenues, and paper over the problem with massive amounts of newly printed currency. The only logical result is a stampede into gold and other precious metals. Occasionally, and without conviction, there will be a partial selloff in gold and some dip buying of eroding and fragile equities.

Fiat Paper Currencies Finally Redeemed for Gold / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: John_Browne

The basic unwillingness of politicians to face economic and financial realities has caused the United States and European Union to face currency collapse. The politicians are content literally to paper over the problem with massive amounts of newly printed currency. This means that savvy investors, facing major real losses, are turning increasingly to gold. In essence, even though currencies are no longer on a gold standard, they are increasingly being "redeemed" for gold in the marketplace.

By: David_Galland

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Galland, Managing Director Casey Research writes: I am beginning to feel a bit like one of the French unfortunates stumbling through the fog in the Ardennes, circa 1914. Except that, instead of Germans full of deadly intent coming at me in the gloomy forest, it is a flock of black swans.

As it was for the French in the Ardennes, the number of problems - then Germans, now black swans - is becoming overwhelming.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMr Doubter, otherwise known as the child who pointed out the Emperor’s lack of clothes, has always played a key role in monetary affairs. However, the tools with which he has done his doubting have evolved over time.

U.S. Economy Saved by a Trillion-Dollar Coin? / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNow that the "crisis" over the federal debt ceiling has been averted, we can leisurely explore two of the wackier proposals that emerged during the state of panic. Not surprisingly, the schemes involved the Federal Reserve and its ability to circumvent, not just standard accounting, but also the traditional divisions of political power. It's worth studying the episode carefully because we will probably see one or more of these "solutions" promoted as the only answer to another crisis in the not-too-distant future.

Thoughts on Currency Speculation, Dollar, Breaking Correlation Between the Euro and Gold / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Aftab_Singh

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA few weeks back, we mentioned that ’we would embrace [a short-term higher high in the dollar index] as an opportunity to take part on the long-side‘. The dollar index has come under some pressure over the past week, so just in case any of our readers were wondering if we’ve changed our minds completely, I thought I’d highlight why we’re sticking to our long dollar position for now (even though the immediate price action hasn’t corroborated this view yet). In the process of outlining our view, I’ll go over our philosophy on currency speculation and consider the breaking correlation between the dollar price of the Euro and the dollar price of gold.
