from Gold Silver Worlds:
Mainstream economists and mainstream media remain convinced that the economy and markets are in full recovery mode. Along the same lines, gold is unanimously expected to decline in the year(s) head.
One of the most recent appearances of that kind was the 2014 outlook of IMF economic counselor, Olivier Blanchard, who explained last week that global growth would average 3.7% in 2014.
Ironically, the recovery story, based on the central bank premise that they can create wealth by simply exploding their balance sheets, seems as solid as a “house of cards.” Past week Thursday and Friday, several emerging markets suffered from an economic earthquake, especially in their currency markets, which resulted in losses in most developed world markets not seen since 6 months. The Yen and the Swiss Franc were considered a safe haven, just like gold and US Treasury bonds.
