Dueling Fiat Currencies / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Richard_Daughty

My daughter, for some reason, decided that breakfast is the best time of day to tell me that she needs me to give her a wad of money, more money than I earned in a freaking month when I was her age, and for some stupid "back to school supplies" or to "have the sutures removed," or something, I can't remember the stupid details, but whatever it was, I remember that did not want to pay for it.

The Curse of Fiat Money, Preventing the Banking Industry from Shrinking / Interest-Rates / Fiat Currency

By: Thorsten_Polleit

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt may come as a surprise to many, but the relative size of the US commercial-banking industry has not declined following the so-called credit-market crisis, which developed in the second half of 2007. On the contrary, it has increased since then. While nominal GDP rose 4.2% from the second quarter of 2007 to the second quarter of 2010, banks' total assets rose 18.4%.

Three Steps to Your Monetary Freedom / Personal_Finance / Fiat Currency

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRichard C.B. Johnsson writes: What is needed for us to have real monetary freedom? Do we have to repeal legal tender laws? Abolish the central bank? Introduce a gold standard? Denationalize money á la Hayek? Or perhaps to introduce some other major policy change?

Not really. We just have to use some magic, some monetary magic.

Currency and Banking Reform in 19th-Century Britain / Economics / Fiat Currency

By: Matt_McCaffrey

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs banks — central and otherwise — falter and fail across the globe, it is increasingly obvious that the problems of monetary policy that we face run deeper than merely finding the correct adjustment to a Taylor rule. It is trite but nevertheless true to say that great monetary reforms are necessary. The purpose of this article is not to argue for particular policies, but to examine a particularly important historical example of how (and how not) to go about monetary policy and reform.

Different groups often notice different aspects of the same phenomenon — this is the point of the famous tale of the blind men encountering an elephant. When it comes to the Federal Reserve, Austrians usually focus on how its tinkering with interest rates leads to the boom–bust cycle.

Well, here is the cloud no bigger than a man's hand, a revival of a 60-year-old idea of a global paper currency to fix what ails us.

We must expect bad outcomes when we are all stealing from each other every day. We have created a system of stealing and we are all complicit in it. When new money is created, purchasing power (value) is stolen from every person holding any money.

Suiting Up for a Post U.S. Dollar World / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: John_Browne

The global financial crisis is playing out like a slow-moving, highly predicable stage play. In the current scene, Western governments are caught between the demands of entitled welfare beneficiaries and the anxiety of bondholders who fear they will be stuck with the bill. As the crisis reaches an apex, prime ministers and presidents are forced into a Sophie's choice between social unrest and bankruptcy. But with the "Club Med" economies set to fall like dominoes, the US Treasury market is not yet acting the role we would have anticipated.

Weaker Euro May Kill Russian Ruble and Industry / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Pravda

The dollar rate may drop from the current level of 31 to 28 rubles per dollar by the end of 2012, whereas the Russian ruble may grow against major currencies of the world by 20 percent, a report from the Ministry for the Economic Development of the Russian Federation said. The growth of the Russian currency may occur even faster due to the weakening of the euro, the ministry’s moderately optimistic forecast for 2011-2013 said.

The Euro is Doomed, But So is the U.S. Dollar / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Claus_Vogt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGreece has made it obvious: The euro is doomed. This fact had been obvious to all the euro critics from the very beginning. All the arguments against the possibility of a common currency for very disparate countries had been raised, but brushed away by overzealous politicians.

They’ll learn their monetary lesson the hard way in the coming years.

Special Drawing Rights Emerge in European Bailout / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

SDRs, or special drawing rights, are a type of off-the-wall currency floated around the International Monetary Fund.  In order to keep everything clean, orderly and honest, (as much as it can be with an institution more powerful than most national governments), the IMF created the SDR to easily exchange a country’s reserves for individual currencies.  When a country possesses 1 SDR, they actually own a basket of world currencies, and many suspect SDRs could soon become the world's reserve currency.

U.S. Dollar, Euro and Other Fiat Currencies Beyond the Point of No Return / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBud Conrad writes: We're heading toward government devaluing its currency to devaluate its debt in order to survive. That means you need to protect yourself. You can't just have savings accounts paying no interest. You need to go and buy gold," says Bud Conrad, chief economist with Casey Research, in this exclusive Gold Report interview. Despite the grim outlook for the U.S. dollar and other paper currencies worldwide, Conrad believes he and other speakers at the recent Casey Research 2010 Crisis and Opportunity Summit have information you need to both prosper and protect yourself during the coming economic storm.

The Fiat Money End Game / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Michael_S_Rozeff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJim Sinclair has a slogan "QE to infinity." That's "Quantitative Easing to infinity." That's inflation to infinity. That's the case for gold and silver in a nutshell. I think he's right. I'd like to explain why I think he's right, but in a roundabout way that gives me a chance to express some of my thoughts on the financial crisis we are observing.

If the Euro Collapses, What Will Happen to Fiat Currencies? / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Julian_DW_Phillips

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLet us start off by saying that we do not see the Euro collapsing and being shelved, at least not yet, anyway. No exit process was written into their rules anyway. But it is technically possible, so better to be forewarned. What would prompt such a collapse? The future of the Euro lies in the hands of its members, especially Germany - the richest and strongest member of the Eurozone. It would be because the leading member [Germany]) felt it to be in their national interest(s) to let it fall.

A Closer Look at China's Currency Manipulation / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJonathan Finegold Catalán writes: There is much disagreement on how the United States should deal with China's persistent devaluation of the yuan. Worse, there is still substantial confusion on the actual effects of an undervalued yuan on capital markets, "trade deficits", and the economy in general. The most widely accepted and common theory goes something like this: currency devaluation helps China by boosting its exports, and hurts the United States by widening the "trade deficit." Indeed, President Barack Obama recently suggested that the United States needed "to make sure our goods are not artificially inflated in price and their goods are not artificially deflated in price; that puts us at a huge competitive disadvantage."
