Sell All Your Bonds

by Doug Casey, DailyReckoning:

So, Trump has won the election. Of course anything can happen between now and his presumed inauguration on January 20.

Maybe the Swamp Creatures will succeed in causing a recount in so-called Purple States that could change the number of electors in Hillary’s favor. Maybe they’ll somehow influence Trump […]

Axis of Gold

by Jim Rickards, DailyReckoning:

Now is the time to keep your eyes on the monetary endgame. Not the daily mark-to-market in paper gold. This endgame is an all-out attack on the status of the U.S. dollar as the benchmark global reserve currency. Numerous players have an interest in ending the dollar’s role for […]

Isolating Russia: A Fool’s Errand

by Jim Rickards, DailyReckoning:

President Obama has conducted the most deleterious foreign policy of any U.S. president since Woodrow Wilson.

This is not due just to a dead ambassador on the streets of Benghazi, a phony red line in Syria which led to 400,000 dead, 2 million wounded, and two million refugees, losing […]

Trump Must Fire Janet Yellen — First Thing!

by David Stockman, DailyReckoning:

The Keynesian statists at the Fed think the devastating financial busts we’ve suffered since 1987 were due to a mix of too much investor exuberance, too much deregulation, a one-time housing mania and a smattering of Wall Street greed and corruption, too.

And that’s not to overlook some of […]

Trump, The Fed and Systemic Risk

by Jim Rickards, DailyReckoning:

The most decisive factor in the implementation of the Trump economic plan is the reaction of the Federal Reserve. While a Fed rate hike in December is a certainty, the path of rates in 2017 following the December hike will be dispositive with regard to the success or failure of […]

Italian Banks on the Brink

by Jim Rickards, DailyReckoning:

There’s an old saying: “What’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.” The meaning is obvious — if you insist on something for others, you have to be prepared to hold yourself to the same standard.

A version of that is playing out in Europe today. And right […]

The War on Cash Just Escalated – Jim Rickards

by Jim Rickards, DailyReckoning:

That’s the global elite plan. World money, world inflation and world taxation, with the IMF as the central bank of the world.

I’ve been warning investors for months about the war on cash.

This war has been in full swing in Europe and the U.S. for a long time. Governments […]

Has the Deep State Gotten to Trump?

by Michael Covel, DailyReckoning:

Just days after his historic ascension to President-elect of the United States, Donald Trump has people you would not expect worried…

This time the concern isn’t coming from his political opposition in the Democratic Party and its shills in the mainstream media.

No, this pressure being directed at Trump is […]

The Ice-Nine Plan – Jim Rickards

by Jim Rickards, DailyReckoning:

The main metaphor I use in my newest book The Road to Ruin: The Global Elites’ Secret Plan for the Next Financial Crisis (claim your free copy here) is something called “Ice-9.”

Ice-9 may be familiar to some listeners and readers, maybe not to others, but this is something I […]

Trump’s True Mission — Lance The Boil

by David Stockman, DailyReckoning:

It can’t be emphasized enough. On Tuesday night the Wall Street/Washington ruling elites got fired and their policies of war, debt and bubble finance got ash-canned.

So he needs to start by calling out the rotten eggs — especially the anti-worker, anti-saver and Wall Street coddling posse of liberals and […]

Trump and the Coming of Helicopter Money – Jim Rickards

by Jim Rickards, DailyReckoning:

One of the great mysteries of the past eight years is why there has not been more consumer price inflation despite the fact that the Federal Reserve has printed over $3 trillion in new money.

Many economists hypothesizes that such money printing must prove inflationary, and many consumers assumed the […]


by Daily Reckoning, DailyReckoning:

America’s voters fired their ruling elites last night.

After 30 years of arrogant misrule and wantonly planting the seeds of economic and financial ruin throughout Flyover America, the Wall Street/Washington establishment and its mainstream media tools have been repudiated like never before in modern history.

During the course of the […]

Don’t Listen to the Polls – Jim Rickards

by Jim Rickards, DailyReckoning:

Many news sites rely on a “poll of polls,” where they take the average of ten or so different polls and run with that figure. It sounds accurate in theory. But there are reasons why that might not be an accurate indicator of this election.

The first reason is that […]

Rickards: Trump Still Wins. Here’s Why…

by Jim Rickards, DailyReckoning:

I first issued a forecast that Trump would win the election before the Oct. 28 announcement by the FBI that the Hillary email investigation was being reopened.

That Oct. 28 announcement gave gold a tail wind, as it increased Trump’s chances of winning, but it didn’t change my basic outlook.


Has the Deep State Dropped Hillary?

by Bill Bonner, DailyReckoning:

Could the Deep State be sabotaging Hillary?

That’s the question The Daily Reckoning’s Charles Hugh Smith has been asking lately.

The Deep State being the “state within the state.” The combination of the military-industrial complex. The intelligence community. And Wall Street.

All pulling unseen strings above the stage, controlling the […]

Expect a Trump Win and Violent Market Repricing – Jim Rickards

by Jim Rickards, DailyReckoning:

The past few days have been a mix of the expected and unexpected. On Wednesday afternoon, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) of the Federal Reserve voted to keep its target interest rate unchanged, but also signaled that they will raise rates at the December FOMC meeting.

Both moves were […]

Hillary’s Just The Beginning Of Crooked

by David Stockman, DailyReckoning:

If Hillary survives WikiLeaks and stumbles across the line ahead of Donald Trump next week, she won’t be the only crooked thing afflicting the nation during the next four years. The crooked stock market is fixing to deliver some punishing blows, too.

That’s because the stock averages are now floating […]
