Bix Weir – It’s Getting Very Interesting

from Financial Survival Network

Bix Weir joined us today for a look at what’s happening now and what’s going to happen next.

It’s all getting very interesting. While gold and silver prices get hammered, there’s no supply to be had. Bitcoin is also getting hammered, down to the low $400’s, and the dollar keeps going up. Bix is convinced that it’s all going to end soon and with a bang, not a whimper.

We’ll know a lot more soon.

Jason Stevens- $8 Billion Waiting To Be Invested In Mining Stocks

from Financial Survival Network

We spoke with Sprott Global’s Jason Stevens.

He’s not at all discouraged by the recent price action in gold and silver. He expects to see the gold price stay in the $1250 to $1400 range for a while. But the miners have already learned to exist and thrive in this environment and when the price eventually increases the miners will really profit.

There’s still plenty of bargains and now is a good time to be looking closer at them.

Heather Wagenhals – Fraud Alert: Watch Out For The Verizon28 Scam

from Financial Survival Network

Heather Wagenhals was back on with us discussing the new, or not so new, Verizon 28 scam. That’s where a robo-call informs you that because you’re such a wonderful Verizon customer, you’re entitled to get $30 back, just go to the Verizon28 website. Give them your account information and then you’ll get the credit applied to your next bill, except that the instead of the credit, you’ll get a nice $300 charge. Evidently, it’s been going on for quite some time and Verizon hasn’t been doing much, if anything about it. Be on the look for this and a whole lot more.

Peter Grandich – Gold Decline Is Technical Not Physical, A Contrarians Delight

from Financial Survival Network

Peter Grandich says that everyone is down on gold and this could be the final down leg down. While timing is always tricky, the near universal bearish sentiment could be the best indicator that the triple bottom will be the final bottom for the yellow metal. While retail investment demand for the gold is near non-existent, there’s still plenty of jewelry demand and it might not take much to get it going higher again. Remember, the black swans are still circling.

John Rubino – Do Currency Wars Create Chaos?

from Financial Survival Network

We had our regular Monday chat with John Rubino today. There’s an emerging trading block – the BRICS – that could and probably will eventually challenge the Dollar’s primacy. When is the question? Right now the world’s economic system is truly on the edge. If the Dollar’s reserve currency status gets upended now, will it cause global chaos, especially if the United States fights back? And will we wind up with chaos anyway due to the insane actions of the world’s central banks? John and I discuss these questions and more on today’s discussion.

Nick Barisheff – Sticking To Gold $10,000

from Financial Survival Network

Nick Barisheff wrote his book $10,000 Gold: Why Gold’s Inevitable Rise Is the Investor’s Safe Haven. He’s still sticking with his prediction, in spite of the recent slam down of gold and silver. He sees it as nothing more than manipulation. The reasons for his prediction are still happening. Unless the US discovers fiscal sanity tomorrow, a highly unlikely event, the future is quite certain, the dollar is headed for the dustbin of history. Unfortunately, people don’t like to face the facts, even when they’re facing them squarely in the face. Nick still believes that bullion is your ultimate savior.

Gary Christenson – What Is Gold Worth?

from Financial Survival Network

Gary Christenson has been following Gold for a long time.

He’s given up trying to make sense of the day to day gyrations. Rather, he began looking for a neutral way to value it and struck upon using total US debt outstanding. Based upon this measure, gold prices are due for a large increase. When isn’t so important.

Gary is content to just hold on and wait for the inevitable.

Reid M. Hart – Can a Grand Jury Really Indict a Ham Sandwich?

from Financial Survival Network

Reid M. Hart is an experienced attorney practicing criminal law in Florida, and the answer to the abused cliche is yes, a grand jury could indict a ham sandwich, and that’s no baloney. However, recently in a much publicized case, one chose not to. Two Brown University football players were accused of sexual assault and the case was presented to a grand jury, which surprise of all surprises, declined to indict. However, they were still booted out of Brown University with no due process.

We also talked about the abuses that routinely take place by the police in the speed trap capitol of the United States, Waldo Florida. Recent disclosures have proven that this town is little more than a ticket mill, where thousands of drivers are wrongly nailed for speeding each year. The State’s known about it for decades but chose to do nothing, until now.

Craig Lack – The Good Side of Obamacare

from Financial Survival Network

Craig Lack is a best selling author and widely acknowledged expert on Obamacare and health insurance benefits. If there’s a silver lining to this cloud, Craig has found it. Under the law, it is now possible to incentivize healthy behavior and pass on the savings that result from it. Therefore, if you can get your employees to live a healthier lifestyle and keep their premiums down, you can share the savings. There’s other ways to save and avoid the mandates as well, you just have to know where to look, which Craig explains.

Rituparna Basu – How Much is Too Much For a Lifesaving Drug?

from Financial Survival Network

Rituparna Basu of the Ayn Rand Institute joined us today. There’s a new breakthrough treatment for Hepatitis C called Sovaldi. Unfortunately, it costs $1000 per pill. It’s so costly that the government and insurance companies are rebelling against the Gilead Pharmaceuticals, the developer. Should everyone in society have access to a new treatment, regardless of the cost? Should the government institute price controls to that end? Will it destroy innovation as a result? These types of questions will become more common as these types of drugs hit the market in the future, so the issues must be addressed now rather than later. We need policies that insure innovation continues while allowing the widest access possible.

Triple Lutz Report #363 – Detroit Bankrupt Trial Halted

from Financial Survival Network

Just when it looked like the fun was about to begin, Detroit’s noisiest and perhaps most obnoxious creditor, bond insurer Syncora agreed to a settlement. It’s clearly a case of the squeeky wheel getting the oil. Initally they were slated to lose $400 million, most of it going to keep the insolvent Detroit pension fund paying out to retirees. Now, they will lose much less and the bankruptcy will move ahead much faster, everybody’s a winner, right?

The famous Lion’s Share slot machine at Vegas’s MGM Grand Casino finally paid off after 20 years. The lucky winners took down $2.4 million dollars and will get to keep the lucky machine. If only it had paid off at the Liberty Mastermind Symposium, yours truly would not be writing this column now.

Danielle Park – When Is A Bubble Not A Bubble?

from Financial Survival Network

Danielle Park’s recent article shows an alarming chart by John Hussman. It could be entitled Anatomy of a Bubble. No one knows they’re in a bubble until after the bubble pops. Why is that? Perhaps because it’s so difficult to keep one’s perspective when the double digit gains are piling up. In any event, the chart is quite alarming and you should be alarmed too.

Next, we discussed Elizabeth Warren’s ceaseless efforts to impose accountability upon the financial system. Unfortunately, it’s a lonely battle. And finally, Payday Loans, a business that shouldn’t be allowed to exist. You’ll be amazed who financed these entities.

Kyle Olson – Omaha Schools Become Tic Tac Free Zone

from Financial Survival Network

We caught up with Kyle Olson today. School nutrition experts in Nebraska are struggling to comply with new federal snack regulations championed by First Lady Michelle Obama.

“I think we’ve gone too far, too fast,” Diane Zipay, director of nutritional services for the Westside School District told KIETV.com. “And I don’t think it’s a real-world environment. We might have changed the school but we haven’t changed the child or our world.”

The federal snack rules take effect this year for school districts across the country that participate in the federal free and reduced lunch program. They restrict snack foods sold at schools to those with at least 50 percent whole grain, with low sugar, fat and sodium content. Each snack must also come in under 200 calories, according to the news site.

John Rubino – Real Interest Rates and Future Chaos

from Financial Survival Network

John Rubino recently wrote, The folks at Gresham’s Law just published a nifty interactive chart of real (i.e., inflation-adjusted) interest rates since the 1960s which explains a lot about today’s world.

To make sense of this, let’s start with a a little background: Interest rates are the rental cost of money, but to figure out the true cost you have to adjust the nominal (or numerical) interest rate for inflation, which is the rate at which the currency being borrowed is falling in value.

If the nominal interest rate is higher than inflation, then the real interest rate is positive. If the real rate is both positive and high, that’s a signal that money is expensive and that one is better off being a lender (to reap those high returns) than a borrower (who has to pay the high true cost of money). The opposite is true for negative real rates, where the nominal cost of money is lower than the rate at which the currency is being depreciated. In this case a borrower actually gets paid to borrow because the true cost of the loan falls as the currency loses value. So negative real rates tell market participants to borrow as much as possible.

Michelle Seiler-Tucker – No, Al Sharpton, Two Wrongs Don’t Make a Right

from Financial Survival Network

Michelle Seiler-Tucker is sick of society’s prevalent attitude that somehow two wrong’s make a right.

In Ferguson, MO, the rioters somehow mistakenly believed that if Michael Brown was wrongfully killed (which of course is still an open question) they could take matters into their own hands and riot and loot innocent businesses in their quest for justice.

Michelle feels that it’s time for people to start taking responsibility for their actions and allow the system to work.

Craig Bergman – The Making of Unfair The Movie

from Financial Survival Network

How does an ordinary guy like Craig Bergman go on to make a movie that’s going to be released in 700 theaters across the nation on October 14? It’s an interesting story.

UnFair: Exposing the IRS details the corruption and perversion that’s taken place at the nation’s tax collector, the IRS. It’s about abuse of power and abuse of citizens. But Bergman’s work doesn’t stop there. After the movie airs, there’s going to be a panel discussion that deals with solutions, abolishing the dreading agency and instituting a national sales tax in its place.

We love solutions at FSN.

Frank Vernuccio – Is Obama Confused About The Proper Function Of Government?

from Financial Survival Network

Frank Vernuccio is editor-in-chief of New York Analysis of Policy & Government. He believes that the Obama administration is clueless when it comes to the proper functioning of government and its use of power, both within the US and outside. When it comes to the IRS, the Justice Department, Bengazi and a host of other situations and scandals, Vernuccio says the administration acts not from legal and constitutional principals, but rather from its own set of principals, which don’t appear to be written down anywhere and are completely unpredictable and unknowable.
