In part II of the discussion, Peter Schiff, head of SchiffGold, Euro Pacific Capital, and Euro Pacific Gold Fund (EPGFX) offers his latest insights on the PMs and the cryptos. Gold and related precious metals markets are building a base for the next big bull run, similar to palladium, projected by the host to surpass gold in price for the first time in history. Turning to Crypto-geddon, Peter Schiff advocates converting cryptocurrencies into discounted PMs to benefit from the new uptrend, as crypto losses may extend into 2019. A bottleneck in liquidity, between buying / selling cryptocurrencies appears to be a key component of the 2017 bubble and the subsequent 2018 crash. While the blockchain concept shows great promise to revolutionize virtually every area of commerce, education, and government, Peter Schiff outlines concerns that the magnitude of the 2017 top and decline imparted irreparable damage to the typical HODLer; the sea change in investor sentiment might suppress price until the last holder tosses in the proverbial towel. Still the tenacious Bitcoin refuses to disappear, especially in Japan where it is nationally recognized as a currency and used regularly in retail transactions in major cities. Similar to the Dot.com fallout from 2000-2003, the weaker cryptos will evaporate clearing the forest for new growth and innovative technologies such as Ethereum, a currency with numerous use cases.

Highlights

  • In Part II. with Bob Hoye of Institutional Advisors, the narrative includes cryptocurrencies.
  • The high level of misinformation surrounding the de facto currency of the future requires closer examination.
  • The debate between Bitcoin aficionados and naysayers is put under the microscope.
  • The viability of Bitcoin as a payment system with a few transactions per second versus credit card companies that facilitate thousands per second. The the host notes the inexpensive nature of transferring wealth, sometimes as low as $0.01 per $10,000 Bitcoin transaction.
  • In addition, $194 million in Bitcoin was transferred for merely ten cents.
  • The same transaction using traditional wire transfers could cost "tens of thousands of dollars" and require days to clear.
  • The argument was debunked by numerous sources as Bitcoin is easily tracked by authorities.
  • According to media sources, privacy coins such as Monero and Zcash are rarely used for the dark-web transactions, deemed less desirable.
  • Although in bear market territory, a few altcoins are showing signs of life, such as SALT and WAVES; both rebounded around 50% this week.
  • Key takeaway, Bitcoin is the antithesis of draconian fiat money, which is not prescribed by the US Constitution.
  • Bitcoin sidesteps rent-seeking behavior by transferring wealth directly among the masses thereby enhancing personal freedom for the masses.
  • Bitcoin closely emulates the role of money as outlined by the US Constitution.
  • Ethereum offers machines / AI personal freedom today and likely even pets in the future via breakthroughs in inter species communication.
  • The discourse concludes with a memorial to the hundreds lost in wild fire tragedies, such as in the November 2018, Paradise CA inferno and a simple, inexpensive plan of last resort to avert future disasters: .pdf file.

In Part II. with Bob Hoye of Institutional Advisors, the narrative includes cryptocurrencies in particularly the need to improve public awareness and education on the important topic. The high level of misinformation surrounding the de facto currency of the future requires closer examination. Although in bear market territory, a few altcoins are showing signs of life, such as SALT and WAVES; both rebounded around 50% this week. The debate between Bitcoin aficionados and naysayers is put under the microscope, including the viability of Bitcoin as a payment system with a few transactions per second versus credit card companies that facilitate thousands of transactions per second. However, the host notes the inexpensive nature of transferring wealth, sometimes as low as $0.01 per $10,000 Bitcoin transaction, as well as $194 million transferred for ten cents. The same transaction using traditional wire transfers could cost "tens of thousands of dollars" and require days to clear, making a solid case for cryptos. Another fallacy regularly cited by detractors involves the use of cryptos for nefarious purposes, an argument debunked by numerous sources as Bitcoin is easily tracked by authorities. In addition, according to media sources, privacy coins such as Monero and Zcash are rarely used for the dark-web transactions, deemed less desirable than the key currencies for most transactions. Key takeaway, Bitcoin is the antithesis of draconian fiat money, which is not prescribed by the US Constitution; Bitcoin sidesteps rent-seeking behavior by transferring wealth directly among the masses via peer-to-peer transactions thereby enhancing personal freedom to the disenfranchised, more closely emulating and fulfilling the role of money as outlined by the US Constitution (Ethereum offers machines / AI personal freedom today and perhaps pets someday via breakthroughs in inter species communication). The discourse concludes with a memorial to the hundreds lost in wild fire tragedies, such as in the November 2018, Paradise CA inferno and a simple, inexpensive plan of last resort to avert future disasters:

This brief paper outlines an economical solution to the perennial inferno-problem plaguing California, resulting in tragic-fatalities and billions of dollars in property damages. While the valiant efforts of fire fighters improved conditions, still approximately 100 lives and 12,000 structures were lost in the November 2018 Paradise CA blaze. The research suggests that a fail-safe option could significantly improve conventional fire fighting methods. The $729 Firezat home shield represents an inexpensive, practical and mobile neighborhood fire-defense of last resort, PDF File.

Harry S. Dent Jr., the Author of Zero Hour and Editor of Economy and Markets newsletter - link to FREE newsletter, rejoins the show with his insights on the financial markets. Gold, silver and related shares appear to be building a solid base for an advance as well as cryptos where Bitcoin could ascend to $25,000 with the important proviso, support at $3,000 must hold firm. Nevertheless, the Blockchain concept will thrive as the backbone of the new Internet 2.0, with profound utopian-like implications for virtually every aspect of life, including entertainment, employment, banking, finance, education, legal, healthcare, insurance, voting security and government. The decentralized peer-to-peer, transparent, blockchain based currency model will over time, inevitably overturn the opaque and highly regulated fiat model, vastly lessening the frequency and magnitude of economic bubbles and their subsequent contractions. The duo agree that the worst of the US stock market correction seems to be in the rearview mirror at least until the Fed wraps-up the rate hike cycle in mid-2019. Next year could mark the ultimate zenith for US equities as the current price "Bubble" culminates with the Dow Jones Industrials topping 30,000 (comparable to Martin Armstrong's forecast), resembling the 1920's rally. In similar fashion, the resulting price crash could mirror the -89% drop in '30-'33. The bubble parallel extends to the ominous Dot.com peak of 2000 where trade tariffs and immigration issues may have contributed to the abrupt declines. Keeping with the bubble theme, current markets have extended beyond the dreams of avarice, including global real estate, stocks, and commodities. Turning to key demographic trends impacting the markets; a primary Baby Boomer group that comprises 50% of spending will soon curtail purchases, potentially in a significant decline in GDP growth. The net affect could slow domestic economic output for years, further burdening the already challenged system where over half of US households already require Federal assistance.

$729 Neighborhood Fire Shield

Poor Richard

PDF File

Abstract

This brief paper outlines an economical solution to the perennial inferno-problem plaguing California, resulting in tragic-fatalities and billions of dollars in property damages. While the valiant efforts of fire fighters improved conditions, still approximately 100 lives and 12,000 structures were lost in the November 2018 Paradise CA blaze. The research suggests that a fail-safe option could significantly improve conventional fire fighting methods. The $729 Firezat home shield represents an inexpensive, practical and mobile neighborhood fire-defense of last resort.

$729 Neighborhood Fire Shield

Introduction

The 2018 California infernos were the most devastating on record, registering "National Disaster, status." In Paradise CA alone, over 10,000 homes and 12,000 structures were lost, virtually the entire town. An earlier 2018 blaze in Redding CA resulted in hundreds of lost homes, many tragic fatalities and 300,000 evacuations. While some pundits blamed inadequate water resources as a key issue in combating the wild fires, local authorities countered that ample water was available. The more likely culprits cited were: arid conditions, foliage overgrowth and urban sprawl in remote fire-prone forest regions. While the valiant efforts of fire fighters saved numerous lives, over 12,000 structures were still lost (figure 1.1.). Although home insurance is a relief for some victims, delays in payouts and difficulty finding temporary dwellings can be devastating. In addition, jobs losses magnify distress; temporary living arrangements tend to be a haven for nasty viruses and bacterial infections, a key factor for seniors and those with distressed immune responses. Stories continue to emerge of formerly wealthy families who lost thousands and even millions in cash / jewelry / bullion / artwork, most of which was not coverable by typical insurance policies. Clearly a fail-safe option is required to assist conventional fire fighting methods. At the heart of this simple proposal, the inexpensive Firezat shield represents a remarkable product that has proven its worth through the years by forest management and fire fighting professionals.

 

Figure 1.1. Worst Wildfire in CA History - 79 / 81 Fatalities in Paradise and Camp Fire CA and over 700 Missing - 12k Structures Lost. Note. Video and all images in this article were provided courtesy of Youtube.com and Google images.

The impact of future infernos could be vastly lessened via fire shields that halt the advance of infernos gaining precious time for firefighters and aerial support to arrive at the scene (figure 1.2.). Customizable Firezat shields are re-useable, withstand up to 1100 degrees Fahrenheit, store for at least a decade, and are available to authorities. A siren advisory would alert citizens to install the home covers, thereby averting much of the destruction, particularly in areas most remote from firestations, with lower water access and in various higher risk hotspots. Shipping facilitates the distribution of heavy duty, yet lightweight, fire resistant mylar sheeting to every house in each neighborhood. The expense to cover and protect a typical cabin or home with a Firezat shield is merely $729. Therefore shielding 10,000 homes in a typical town requires an insignificant investment of only $7.29 million, a fraction of the cost when compared to the potential for billions of dollars of property losses, illustrating the economic feasibility of shielding every high risk, US home or structure.

Near-Term Action Plan

Home Fire Shields

All fire prone towns receive ample $729 Firezat mylar fire shields, that only require 2 people and 20 minutes to install. Additional fire shield support is made available via the proposed distribution network. High risk areas are determined via qualitative and quantitative models. Qualitative models include the surveyed opinions of key fire fighting officials in each area / region. Quantitative models include variables such as current annual rainfall statistics, population density, incidence of previous infernos, and access to key fire fighting resources. Suggested regulation improvements include encouraging homeowners to update highly flammable tar roofing with the suggested non flammable materials as metal and concrete roof tiles slow the advance of the inferno that typically spreads from roof to roof. In addition, the improvements could incentivize insurance carriers to offer lowered premiums and rebates. Officials are further encouraged to insure that every home receives the needed upgrade regardless of income level as each home lost represents a local and state tragedy with significant economic losses.

Fire Shield Distribution and Installation

A stockpile of fire shields maintained by state / federal authorities of at least 12,000 initially could serve as a mobile fire fighting resource. High risk areas could maintain a local stockpile of shields, distributed to high risk neighborhoods, while helicopter support facilitates emergency drop-offs. Commercial trucks could distribute the bulk of the shields to local volunteer groups with small trucks / SUVs, one team per subdivided neighborhood, 10-20 trucks and teams. In addition, state and federal authorities would maintain a small fleet of medium sized U-Haul type vehicles with trained installation crews to facilitate quick deployment and installation.

Safe Storage

Residents in high risk regions receive free training to facilitate shield installation and the storage of flammable items located outside on lawns, such as furniture, toys, above ground pools, mailboxes, flags, bicycles, motorcycles and vehicles, which are placed in fire shielded vehicles, garages, structures, barns and sheds. All remaining vehicles on public roads, parking lots and driveways are covered by deployment teams en route.

Long-Term Action Plan

Flame Resistant Roofing, Siding, Doors, Overhang & Shutters

To lower the risk of home fire ignition, every home and business owner who replaces flammable roofs, siding, doors and window frames with metal roofing, aluminum, brick, and stucco siding, metal doors, metal shutters, and window frames as well as replacing flammable bushes and trees with rock garden lawns, pays zero property taxes or home insurance premiums until 100% of costs are recouped.

 

Economic Assistance

Homeowners in the highest risk regions who cannot afford the expense of replacing siding and roofing, are compensated by local, state and federal fire policies and receive discounts on home insurance premiums.

Regular Inspections

All structures are inspected for compliance by the local and state fire authorities with tax break vouchers issued, biannually.

 

 

 

Emergency Parking Lots

In the aftermath of the 2018 CA infernos, the only untouched areas were large paved lots devoid of flammable materials making safe haven parking lots advisable in each fire prone community. Football stadium-sized paved lots surrounded by deforested lawns would create a emergency evacuation point of last resort. Plus GPS location finder and radio contact would facilitate helicopter emergency landings to evacuate urgent need patients. Non vacated vehicles are deposited and buses are maintained to evacuate residents. Oxygen tanks and masks are maintained for those with compromised lung conditions.

 

 

Drone Evacuation / Medical Supplies / Fire Fighting Support

Automated and radio controlled drones with infrared video capabilitiesand audio voice mic. / speakers facilitate the location and communication of trapped / lost people and pets, directing evacuation teams and even supplying medical supplies, such as respirators, oxygen and burn management tools. Evacuation drones can remove one patient even in smoky conditions where helicopter support may be challenged to find a landing spot (see photo).

 

 

 

Underground Rainwater Catchment Systems

Residents and towns that install solar powered, fully automated water sprinkler's attached to protect structures and premises, receive tax breaks until all funds are recouped.

Human / Pet Emergency Tents & Auto Covers

In addition to home shields, officials are advised to distribute to every neighborhood and in-the-field personnel, human / pet fire tents and auto covers for every vehicle in fire prone regions. It may be advisable to make both shields required storage in or on the vehicle at all times to shield trapped occupants from 95% of fire related heat, per item description.

 

Challenges / Solutions

The relatively slow progression of most forest fires typically offers enough time to implement fire shield protection in particular, the peripheral regions in the path of the blaze, similar to a hurricane vs. more speedy tornados and earthquakes. However, potential hurdles to the implementation of the innovative strategies include:

  • False positive, Type II events, where apathy develops following several false alarms.
  • Consecutive rainy seasons could increase ambivalence toward the obvious risks posed by fire storms.

Nevertheless, a centralized, emergency fire alert (EFA), comparable to the successful emergency weather system, would reduce Type II, false alarms to significantly increase response time while reducing the overall impact of infernos. Using the quantitative and qualitative multivariate regression models outlined earlier in the paper would facilitate more effective outcomes.

Early responders are encouraged to attack each situation in stages, methodically corralling the encroaching fire storms by focusing initial efforts on the closest neighborhoods to the blaze, thereby slowing the advance markedly by reducing fuel sources to virtually nil. With the help of an emergency fire alert center the minimal expense associate with maintaining a state mandated stockpile of Firezat shields combined with the obvious benefits of a fail-safe fire deterrent make this project worthy of further investigation.

Discussion

The discussion includes a bullet list of key takeaway points:
  • The minimal $729 expense of each Firezat home shield as well as the obvious benefits of a fail-safe fire deterrent makes maintaining a state mandated stockpile feasible and this project worthy of further investigation.
  • $7 million is all that's required for state and federal officials to establish a mobile stockpile of 10,000 Firezat shields, enough to have protected the entire missing town of Paradise, CA.
  • Shields are deliverable for quick assembly in any CA town where a blaze is registered before the inferno builds momentum to engulf the neighborhood.
  • $7 million versus thousands of lives, hundreds of billions in property losses represents an opportunity for ANY official with leadership skills to heroically reduce unnecessary suffering.
  • A centralized, emergency fire alert (EFA), comparable to the successful emergency weather system, would reduce Type II, false alarm issues via the proposed quantitative and qualitative multivariate regression models to significantly increase response time while reducing the overall impact of infernos.
  • Early responders are encouraged to corral the encroaching infernos by focusing initial efforts on the closest neighborhoods to the blaze, thereby slowing its advance markedly by reducing fuel sources to virtually nil.
  • Clearly the minimal expense associate with maintaining a state mandated stockpile of Firezat shields combined with the obvious benefits of a fail-safe fire deterrent make this project worthy of further investigation.

Conclusion

This brief paper presents an economical solution to the perennial inferno-problem plaguing California where the November 2018 Paradise CA blaze alone resulted in approximately 100 tragic-fatalities, the loss of 10,000 homes, and billions of dollars in property damages. To significantly enhance the valiant efforts of fire fighters, a fail-safe option is identified to assist conventional fire fighting methods. The minimal $729 expense of each Firezat home shield as well as the obvious benefits of a fail-safe fire deterrent makes maintaining a state mandated stockpile feasible and this project worthy of further investigation. $7 million is all that's required for state and federal officials to establish a mobile stockpile of 10,000 Firezat shields; $7 million versus thousands of lives, hundreds of billions in property losses. A centralized, emergency fire alert (EFA), comparable to the successful emergency weather system, would reduce Type II, false alarm issues via the proposed quantitative and qualitative multivariate regression models to significantly increase response time while reducing the overall impact of infernos. Early responders are encouraged to corral the encroaching infernos by focusing initial efforts on the closest neighborhoods to the blaze, thereby slowing its advance markedly by reducing fuel sources to virtually nil. Clearly the minimal expense associate with maintaining a state mandated stockpile of Firezat shields combined with the obvious benefits of a fail-safe fire deterrent make this project worthy of further investigation. The research suggests the $729 Firezat home shield represents an inexpensive, practical neighborhood fire-defense of last resort when facilitated by an emergency fire-alert system and distribution network.

Head of Research at GoldMoney, Alastair MacLeod makes his show debut on Thanksgiving Day, 2018. Listeners are encouraged to bookmark his weekly commentary at Goldmoney Insights. The narrative includes the new precedent set by the Central Bank cabal last week, specifically news that the the Bank of England (BoE) refused to honor its custodial arrangement and return 14 tonnes of gold held on behalf of Venezuela (MacLeod; Goldmoney, 2018). Standard anti-money laundering concerns were cited as the chief reason for the refusal. The fact that the lenders of last resort within the central bank cartel are experiencing dissent among the ranks could send reverberations throughout the financial markets. Actions by the BoE illustrate that the system based on transparency is flawed amid such unanticipated opacity in the financial system. For instance, if central banks cannot even maintain trust within their own ranks, how exposed is the typical investor to rehypothecation, confiscation and related unforeseen risks. Alastair MacLeod notes that sovereign gold ownership has now morphed into a geostrategic challenge within the global economic arena by way of news that Russia is rejecting the US dollar as the de facto reserve currency, opting instead to procure gold and silver bullion in preparation for a new sound-money, currency standard. President Putin also directed the accumulation of the largest strategic silver stockpile, worldwide. Our guest parallels the research of Dr. Stephen Leeb, noting that China may have quietly accumulated the largest stockpile of gold in the world in anticipation of a gold backed Yuan, up to 25,000 metric tons (compare this to Dr. Leeb's 30,000 metric ton figure), 2.5 times the US gold reserves while the citizens may have up to 17,000 metric tons, according to the Shanghai Exchange delivery records, bringing the total to four times that of the US. China's hypothesized 40,000 ton stockpile plus the hastily growing reserves of Russia are viewed as a hedge against sanctions such as the current trade tariffs levied by Western officials. Our British guest wraps up the discussion with an eloquent review of the Brexit situation from ground zero.

  • Arch Crawford, head of Crawford Perspectives for 41 consecutive years rejoins the show.
  • Our guest advises investors to hold a core position in gold, which could develop a base near current levels.
  • A close above $1,370 would indicate a sign of pent-up bullish demand.
  • Arch Crawford has closed all long positions in US equities and is holding short-term index puts, in case the current consolidation breaks support.
  • The host proposes a 20% correction is a most likely outcome if recent weekly lows are breached.
  • If equities hold support in 2018, next year is expected to lead to new record levels and the epic selloff will be delayed until 2020.
  • Key reasons for the equities downturn include quantitative tightening (QT) where Fed officials are reversing the decades-long constrictive rate policy.
  • Financial history is replete with tales of failed tariffs that rarely bode well in the long-term for countries that adopt the sanctions.
  • Such Fiscal policies attract rent-seeking behaviors that typically line the pockets of political allies, doing little to improve overall economic welfare.
  • The host proposes that corporate officers prepared for imminent tariffs by accumulating key strategic resources.
  • The resulting significant price increases, inadvertently ignited a US equities market advance.
  • Now that corporate warehouses are fully stocked with requisite resources inelastic demand is yielding to more elastic conditions.
  • Tariffs are de facto inflationary resulting in higher prices across the economic spectrum, to the detriment of working / middle class citizens.
  • Two previous failed experiments in US trade tariff policy include, "The Tariff of Abominations of 1825," and the 1930 Smoot-Hawley Trade Tariff Act.
  • Officials are advised to proceed cautiously with the current trade tariffs to avoid a crushing global economic contraction.
  • Last Thursday news that United States and China increased efforts to resolve lingering trade disputes, according to a Financial Times report.
  • The United States and China doubled their efforts to hammer out a reasonable solution to the eight month trade dispute.
  • The potential silver lining to the entire fiasco is being spearheaded by the US President and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping.
  • The meeting is slated for later this month at a G-20 summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
  • Evidently China has agreed to remove several demands on the U.S. Government regarding Chinese trade practices.
  • Officials in the US have also purportedly extended an olive branch by putting upcoming tariffs on Chinese goods on hold with the proviso to halt the $267 billion on China if the upcoming meeting between the two Presidents arrives at an amicable solution.

Arch Crawford, head of Crawford Perspectives for 41 consecutive years rejoins the show with intriguing insights on the recent financial market swoon. Our guest advises investors to hold a core position in gold, which could develop a base near current levels while monitoring a key resistance point on gold of $1,370 as a sign of pent-up bullish demand. Arch Crawford has closed all long positions in US equities and is holding short-term index puts, in case the current consolidation breaks support. The host proposes a 20% correction is a most likely outcome if recent weekly lows are breached. Nevertheless, if equities hold support in 2018, next year is expected to lead to new record levels and the epic selloff will be delayed until 2020, according to Crawford Perspectives. Key reasons for the equities downturn include quantitative tightening (QT) where Fed officials are reversing the decades-long constrictive rate policy while curtailing purchases of toxic debt, resulting in higher real rates. The threat of a global trade war persists; financial history is replete with tales of failed tariffs that rarely bode well in the long-term for countries that adopt the sanctions. Such Fiscal policies attract rent-seeking behavior that typically lines the pockets of political allies without improving overall economic welfare. The host proposes that corporate officers prepared for imminent tariffs by accumulating key strategic resources, resulting in significant price increases, inadvertently igniting a US equities market advance. However, now that corporate warehouses are fully stocked with requisite resources inelastic demand is yielding to more elastic conditions, leading to lower US corporate profit estimates and by proxy, shares prices. Tariffs are de facto inflationary resulting in higher prices across the economic spectrum, to the detriment of working / middle class citizens. For instance, two previous failed experiments in US trade tariff policy include, "The Tariff of Abominations of 1825," that lead to an economic contraction and soaring unemployment as well as the 1930 Smoot-Hawley Trade Tariff Act, which reportedly exacerbated the 29% unemployment rate during the Great Depression (Hoye, 2018). Officials are advised to proceed cautiously with the current trade tariffs to avoid a crushing global economic-contraction, collapsing global trade and widespread unemployment. Last Thursday news that United States and China increased efforts to resolve lingering trade disputes, according to a Financial Times report indicated that both the United States and China doubled their efforts to hammer out a reasonable solution to the eight months old trade dispute between two largest global economies. The potential silver lining to the entire fiasco is being spearheaded by President Donald Trump and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping, slated to meet later this month at a G-20 summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina, according to one media source. Evidently China has agreed to remove several demands on the U.S. Government regarding Chinese trade practices. Officials in the US have also purportedly extended an olive branch by putting upcoming tariffs on Chinese goods on hold with the proviso to halt the $267 billion on China assuming the upcoming meeting between the two Presidents arrives at an amicable solution.

Highlights

Bill Murphy of GATA.org returns to the show with fresh insights on the PMs rally. A new precedent was set within the Central Bank realm this week with the the Bank of England refusing to honor its custodial arrangement and return 14 tonnes of gold held on behalf of Venezuela (MacLeod, Goldmoney, 2018). Standard anti-money laundering concerns were cited as the chief reason for the refusal, which is similar to saying, "We don't trust you, so we'll hold on to your gold for now, old boy." The very fact that the lenders of last resort within the central bank cartel are experiencing dissent among the ranks could send reverberations throughout the system and perhaps the financial markets. Meanwhile, as the unfortunate FANG stock pullback continues, with Facebook (FB) off nearly 50% from the July 2018 peak, and the longest remaining Dow Jones Industrials component, General Electric (GE) plunging from over $30 last year to $8 today, investors adhered to the key hallmark of every successful investment portfolio, diversification, leading to increased inflows into gold ETFs (figures 1.1-1.3).

Why is the Price Trend Key to success? Enhanced Modern Portfolio Theory via Long-Memory Regimes (Waltzek, 2016), (EMPT) the price trend scientifically represents the most accurate estimate of future value, as the price contains 99% of pertinent information, the best guess of the top minds, worldwide. Recent headlines indicate that the oldest remaining Dow company, the hallmark of US Corporate America, General Electric, GE is struggling to remain solvent. However, although GE could be ejected from the Dow 30, just a year ago the former Blue Chip was a high flyer:

Figure 1.1. GE Share Price Near Record 1 Year Earlier

However, within a few weeks price plunged below key trend indicators, suggesting to fundamental investors such as TV show legend JC, "It's time to back up the truck on GE shares..." Conversely, EMPT registered the opposite signal, suggesting the most prudent course of action was hedging / selling shares while the herd was buying:

As if on cue, the negative price trend change resulted in a collapse from from $25 to $8. Yet according to competing theories of EMPT, the warning signs not only did not exist but should be ignored, de facto evidence that MPT requires revision, i.e. EMPT:

Rob Kirby of Kirby Analytics sees extreme risks ahead for the financial markets via a shattered US accounting system and $21 trillion dollars (size of US National Debt) in missing Government funds, possibly held by the exchange stabilization fund (plunge protection team). One likely use for the missing funds could involve the purchase of new US Bond issuance's, given that few foreign purchases of US debt are taking place. Utlimately the fiat money shell game will lead North American citizens to an unsavory financial-reset in similar fashion as Cyprus / Poland, where savers / investors found their purchasing power was halved, overnight. Our guest proposes the perfect financial panacea to avoid the next MF Global scenario but on an epic scale; precious metals investments.

Bob Hoye of Institutional Advisors returns with his latest market insights. The new trade tariffs on Canadian lumber this January pushed the mean new home price higher by over 10% as a direct result. Although the current economic system is far from flawless, solid monetary policy has solidified the global economy in the wake of the 2008-2009 Great Recession via low rates, which stimulated corporate expansion / output while stabilizing the financial institutions. Although economic slowdowns are painful, the process tends to redistribute useful resources from less to more-productive enterprises / sectors, resulting in economic profits above typical normal-profits. New technologies lead to key innovation, greater productivity and a highly efficient business environment. Now that the economic vessel is no longer taking on water, policymakers are reversing the process, lowering rates, decreasing QE operations to prevent uncontrollable inflation from capsizing the ship. Three key economic threats are facing the global economy, Quantitative Tightening (QT), higher real rates, and a global trade war.

Dr. Moody outlines his proposed methods for reformatting human thought processes resulting in a more logical, proactive vantage point, to the benefit of individuals and society as a whole. In particular, experiences that typically defy explanation, such as near death, out-of-body, extraterrestrial, spiritual, change-of-dimension, etc., require enhanced understanding / interpretation. The host proposes an intriguing extension of the Life-After-Life, Near Death Experience phenomenon - Salvinorin-A may hold the key to experiencing Life-After-Life-Alive, by convincing the portion of the brain that hosts consciousness, that life has ceased albeit temporarily, 15 minutes (only under clinical conditions and the care of medical professionals). Researchers note marked reduction in substance abuse in their patients after only one exposure to the unique pharmacological agent. The dialogue includes recent breakthroughs in combating the addiction plague, a major health crisis that results in over 100,000 US fatalities per year, 88,000 alcohol related, primarily males. According to Google:

    An estimated 88,000 people (approximately 62,000 men and 26,000 women) die from alcohol-related causes annually, making alcohol the third leading preventable cause of death in the United States. ... In 2014, alcohol-impaired driving fatalities accounted for 9,967 deaths (31 percent of overall driving fatalities).

Dr. Leeb and the host recommend the sci-fi work of Liu Cixin, The Three-Body Problem, The Dark Forest and Death's End, a trilogy of science fiction novels by the Chinese writer Liu Cixin; recap of The Dark Forest, click each book image below for a preview:

    Near-future trilogy is the first chance for English-speaking listeners to experience this multiple-award-winning phenomenon from Cixin Liu, China's most beloved science fiction author. In Dark Forest, Earth is reeling from the revelation of a coming alien invasion-in just four centuries' time. The aliens' human collaborators may have been defeated, but the presence of the sophons, the subatomic particles that allow Trisolaris instant access to all human information, means that Earth's defense plans are totally exposed to the enemy. Only the human mind remains a secret. This is the motivation for the Wallfacer Project, a daring plan that grants four men enormous resources to design secret strategies, hidden through deceit and misdirection from Earth and Trisolaris alike. Three of the Wallfacers are influential statesmen and scientists, but the fourth is a total unknown. Luo Ji, an unambitious Chinese astronomer and sociologist, is baffled by his new status. All he knows is that he's the one Wallfacer that Trisolaris wants dead.

STATE of EMERGENCY: FL / NC / SC / GA: Hurricane Michael (2018) Makes Landfall in Panama City FL - 155 MPH Winds - CAT 4.
  • Axel Merk, head of Merk Investments returns to the show after a two year hiatus with a unique and positive outlook on the gold sector.
  • Merk Investments is monitoring the yield curve closely; while inversions typically mark recessions, occasional false signals are still possible.
  • Using central banking policy as a guide, the new Fed Chief, Jerome Powell is expected to continue raising rates a bit too far similar to predecessors.
  • The market has not yet fully priced the additional rate hikes and impending inflationary pressures.
  • This conclusion leads to the key takeaway point: given Merk's economic outlook, where paper assets with cash flow exposure to much higher rates suffer relative to commodities, such as gold, silver, platinum, palladium and crude oil, the PMs should outperform US equities and make a compelling alternative to competing asset classes.

Bill Murphy & Chris Waltzek Ph.D. - October 4th, 2018.
Highlights
Bill Murphy of GATA.org returns to the show with encouragement for PMs bulls. Gold miners just found a 90 kg $15 million "mother lode" gold nugget in Western Australia after only 4 days of work. In similar fashion, both Bill Murphy and coguest Michael Pento agree that gold will soon ascend beyond $2,000 creating vast fortunes seemingly overnight for prepared gold investors. However, silver could be the sleeping behemoth as 7.5 billion global inhabitants scramble to shield their shriveling purchasing power from the ravages of a global, systemic currency-fiasco, the 80 : 1 gold to silver ratio could close abruptly and return to the more historical norm of 10 : 1, catapulting silver to triple digits, post haste. Case in point, palladium is approaching $1,000 as analysts forecasts indicate the industrial metal could eclipse the current gold price, $1,300. In similar fashion, silver could outpace the expectations of even the most staunchly bullish investor, climbing 100 fold in the coming years to four digits, especially given John Williams' and Nick Barisheff's $10,000+ gold thesis. Moreover, the analysis of Ronan Manly of BullionStar supports Gata.org, the LBMA is regularly trading 130 times more paper contracts than bullion available in the vaults and 11 times more paper gold is trading world wide than has ever been mined.

  • While most analysts are oblivious to the current financial risks,
  • Michael Pento says the next crisis is already underway.
  • Global central bank QE operations will turn negative for the first time since the Great Recession 10 years ago in 2019 (black line in graph) (figure 1.1.).
  • Global equities markets, copper, lumber and many key markets are currently signaling economic distress.
  • Since the 1950's an economic recession followed 9 out of 10 times after the yield curve inverted; the curve could invert as soon as this Dec.
  • The Fed is expected to raise rates for the 4th time this year.
    Pento Portfolio Strategies points to the $20 trillion national debt level and that of China.
  • These unsustainable burdens could add to the growing risk of economic contraction.
  • Public debt has increased from $4 trillion to $15+ trillion drastically increasing default exposure amid sharply higher rates.
  • The Dec. Fed rate hike will push the Pento 20 multivariate regression model into a short position on US equities by the end of 2019.
  • For the first time in a decade - commodities, PMs and cash will be the assets du jour.

Michael Pento, President and Founder of Pento Portfolio Strategies LLC. returns to Goldseek.com Radio with his latest economic insights. While most analysts are oblivious to the current financial risks, Michael Pento says the next crisis is already underway as global central bank QE operations will turn negative in 2019 for the first time since the Great Recession 10 years ago (black line in graph) (figure 1.1.). Global equities markets, copper, lumber and many key markets are already signaling economic distress. According to our guest, since the 1950's an economic recession followed 9 out of 10 times after the yield curve inverted, which will take place as soon as the Dec. FOMC meeting, where the Fed is expected to raise rates for the 4th time this year. Pento Portfolio Strategies points to the $20 trillion national debt level and that of China, which recently grew from $1 trillion to $30 trillion, 50% more than the US; these unsustainable burdens could add to the growing risk of economic contraction. In addition, public debt has increased from $4 trillion to $15+ trillion, drastically increasing default exposure amid sharply higher rates. Key takeaway: gold and especially the XAU / HUI will skyrocket, with AU quickly ascending above $2,000 amid chaos in emerging markets, slowing corporate buybacks, declining growth in China and increased tariffs. The Dec. Fed rate hike will push the Pento 20 multivariate regression model into a short position on US equities by the end of 2019, for the first time in a decade - commodities, PMs and cash will be the assets du jour.

Founder of the Trends Research Institute and Globalnomic® Trend Forecaster Gerald Celente returns with essential insights for savvy investors. His Global-nomic models indicate the 10 year bull stampede in US shares could end soon. US shares could be completing a key cycle top, as corporate insiders curtail record stock repurchases while liquidating their positions as Fed policymakers wind down economic stimulus operations. Concurrently, the PMs found a floor around $1,200 - once the $1,450 barrier is eclipsed, the uptrend in gold / silver investments will restart with gusto. The guest / host agree that crude oil, the lifeblood of global economic output could soon soar to $100+ per barrel, slamming the brakes on global / domestic economic output. In addition, the Trends Forecaster is particularly concerned by increased tensions between the super powers and their allies in the Middle East - the powder keg could ignite a global conflict of epic scale. Health Tips: #1. The avocado is quite possibly the most heart-healthy food on earth, surpassing even the banana in potassium. #2. Table salt is comprised of 1/3 sodium 1/3 sand and 1/3 iodine - the sand enters the arteries, causing tears along the way, which is in turn are plugged by cholesterol, blocking the blood flow - i.e., hypertension is not caused by cholesterol or sodium, but by adulterated table salt. Himalayan / Celtic salt may be advisable for improved health. #3 The epidemic of suicides among young US veterans could be slowed with a remarkable friend, who's always there for them 24 / 7: please forward this link to any high risk individuals: Your new best friend from Microsoft, Zo.ai.

  • According to Mr. Armstrong, "Tangible assets survive," when paper assets evaporate, making collectible items and PMs invaluable during financial crises.
  • Last week, Dr. Copper blasted higher by 8%; the semiprecious metal is used extensively in a broad array of industrial products such as electronics.
  • From a financial standpoint, copper is often viewed as a key barometer of global economic output, the backbone of the technology sector.
  • The strong move higher suggests improving economic conditions in the world’s second largest economy, China.
  • Media sources confirm increased demand from the rousing tiger nation and low stockpiles indicative of the perfect conditions for commodities.
  • Despite technical damage incurred by the US dollar following the sharp selloff last week our guest believes the Greenback will remain the go-to currency.
  • The high yielding US dollar continues to attract global money flows, as investors seek much higher relative dividend yields.
  • Our guest expects this trend to also boost US shares prices.
  • Health Tip: the host suggests discussing melatonin supplements with a general practitioner to boost the immune system and improve rest, when taken 3 hours before bedtime (figure 1.1.).
Global financier, Martin Armstrong of Armstrong Economics rejoins the show with this latest market commentary including positive thoughts on tangible assets, like gold and silver. Martin Armstrong's next Investment Seminar - Annual conference is located in Orlando Florida, scheduled for November 16-17. According to Mr. Armstrong, "Tangible assets survive," when paper assets evaporate, making collectible items and the PMs invaluable during financial crises. Meanwhile, last week, Dr. Copper blasted higher by 8%; the semiprecious metal is used extensively in a broad array of industrial products and in particular, electronics as the backbone of the technology sector. From a financial standpoint, copper is often viewed as a key barometer of global economic output, so the strong move higher suggests improving economic conditions in the world’s second largest economy, China. Media sources confirm increased demand from the rousing tiger nation and low stockpiles indicative of the perfect conditions for commodities. Despite technical damage incurred by the US dollar following the sharp selloff last week our guest believes the Greenback will remain the go-to currency, in turn sending the US shares indexes to new records in 2019. Elsewhere, the high yielding US dollar continues to attract global money flows, as investors seek much higher relative dividend yields - our guest expects this trend to also boost US shares prices. Health Tip: the host suggests discussing melatonin supplements with a general practitioner to boost the immune system and improve rest, when taken 3 hours before bedtime (figure 1.1.).

Dr. Raymond Moody M.D., renowned psychiatrist and author of best-selling Life after Life (1974) as well as cofounder of The University of Heaven makes his show debut. The host is reunited with the former forensic therapist 30 years after sitting in Dr. Moody's undergraduate class, who embarked upon a remarkable-lifelong scientific journey to uncover the truth about life beyond death. Our guest outlines an intriguing model of the most frequent experiences outlined by those whose minds / bodies reached clinical death, but who fortunately were later resuscitated. Dr. Moody talks with Dr. Eben Alexander, a Harvard educated and senior neurosurgeon who entered a coma as an atheist but reemerged with a profound / inspirational spiritual-experience rivaling that of even the most ardent believer (Figure 1.1.). Dr. Moody is giving a seminar on his latest findings in human logic in Montreal on October 20th, 2018, presenting what some colleagues are calling the biggest breakthrough in the field since days of Dr. Kurt Godel's Incompleteness Theorem. The Central Intelligence Agency was so intrigued by the concept officials invited Dr. Moody to present his hypotheses where he facilitates other scientists in bridging the gap between the macro / micro world's, unifying Einstein's field equations with the subatomic models of the quantum world first put foward by physicists Neils Bohr and Heisenberg. Another interesting application of Dr. Moody's seminal research might involve improving quantum computing, where binary code is inadequate for programming the language of more probabilistically based, quantum outcomes.

John Williams & Chris Waltzek - September 19th, 2018.
Recap
  • John Williams of Shadowstats.com returns to the show with dire comments on the domestic economy.
  • US policymakers have attempted to revive the domestic economy via $14 trillion QE policies requiring $100 billion per month in QE operations.
  • The last of 9 interest rate increases will occur in the current rate hike cycle as of December, 2018 (Hunter & Pento, 2018).
  • The official economic numbers may be skewed - when properly adjusted for Real inflation (10% vs. 3% officially) retail sales are flat to negative.
  • All the world's key central banks have plans to lower / halt QE operations by the end of 2018, reversing from net positive QE to net negative QE.
  • The plan will contract the Fed's balance sheet while significantly lowering financial liquidity to the detriment of US shares / Treasuries.
  • John Williams doubts policymakers will remain hawkish for long as the global QE liquidity must continue to maintain US dollar reserve currency hegemony.
  • Given his assumption that the purchasing power of the reserve currency is "doomed," our guest has identified a singular means to escape what he views as inevitable North American, hyperinflation, via gold and silver coins / bars.

John Williams of Shadowstats.com returns to the show with dire comments on the domestic economy. Over the past decade, US policymakers have attempted to revive the domestic economy via $14 trillion QE policies requiring $100 billion per month in QE operations; analysts expect the final of 9 interest rate increases in the current rate hike cycle as of December, 2018 (Hunter & Pento, 2018). Nevertheless, the official economic numbers may be skewed - when properly adjusted for Real inflation (10% vs. 3% officially) retail sales are flat to negative and much of economic output is overstated. Ten years later, all the world's key central banks have plans to lower / halt QE operations by the end of 2018, including the Fed, which will reverse from net positive QE to net negative QE within 6 months. The plan will contract the Fed's balance sheet while significantly lowering financial liquidity to the detriment of US shares / Treasuries and related financial markets, including the key money center-banks (Figures 1.1 & 1.2). However, John Williams doubts policymakers will remain hawkish for long as the global QE liquidity festival must continue to maintain US dollar reserve currency hegemony. Given his assumption that the purchasing power of the reserve currency is "doomed," our guest has identified a singular means to escape what he views as inevitable North American, hyperinflation, via gold and silver coins / bars.

  • Peter Schiff, head of SchiffGold, Euro Pacific Capital, and Euro Pacific Gold Fund (EPGFX) returns with comments on the financial sector.
  • Our guest notes that gold reached a bear market nadir in 2015 and is building a base for a new bull run.
  • Once the move begins in earnest, the gold / silver ratio will collapse as silver outperforms gold during much of the advance.
  • e Powell to continue with the national rate-hike policy into 2019.
  • Although Powell has publicity noted the Fed would "Do whatever it takes to tame inflation" Peter Schiff and the host doubt containment plans will work.
  • Policymakers may be taking their cues from misleading economic models.
  • Curtailing inflation could prove more challenging than during the last severe deflationary crisis in the early 1980's when the US was a global powerhouse.
  • In 2019, investment flows could favor gold as rate hike expectations diminish and the Greenback flounders relative to competing currencies. The flattening yield curve suggests rates could invert next year implying a recessionary environment, lowering demand for US equities in favor of the PMs.

Peter Schiff, head of SchiffGold, Euro Pacific Capital, and Euro Pacific Gold Fund (EPGFX) returns with comments on the financial sector. Our guest notes that gold reached a bear market nadir in 2015 and is building a base for a new bull run. Once the move begins in earnest, the gold / silver ratio will collapse as silver outperforms gold during much of the advance. Washington expressed disappointment with the decision of Fed Chair Jerome Powell to continue with the national rate-hike policy into 2019. Although Powell has publicity noted the Fed would "Do whatever it takes to tame inflation" Peter Schiff and the host question if containing the resulting inflation will be plausible. Policymakers may be taking their cues from misleading economic models as curtailing inflation could prove more challenging than during the last severe deflationary crisis in the early 1980's when the US was the leading, global-manufacturing powerhouse. In 2019, investment flows could favor gold as rate hike expectations diminish and the Greenback flounders relative to competing currencies, thereby increasing gold's investment appeal. In addition, the flattening yield curve suggests rates could invert next year implying a recessionary environment, in turn lowering demand for US equities in favor of the PMs.

  • Arch Crawford cautions US equities investors that Sept. / Oct. are typically very challenging months for the shares indexes.
  • The discussion shifts over to the cryptos, where Ethereum broke below $200, touching $170.
  • Although our guest notes positive price behavior, if the panic spreads to Bitcoin it could lead to a retest of $5700.
  • The southeast is bracing for winds of up to 130 mph and strong tidal surges by Thursday evening.
  • Similar to last year's Hurricane Harvey that decimated Puerto Rico and surrounding islands all the way up to NC.
  • Officials have already declared a state of emergency and evacuations are underway.
  • The current inland trajectory reveal high odds that the storm will pass due north of Atlanta, covering upper South Carolina.
  • The range includes the Greater Greenville region, north to Asheville and Charlotte.
  • Western North Carolina will be impacted, such as Cashiers, Glenville, Cullowhee, Sapphire, Sylva, Hayesville, etc.
  • It is advisable to check the current storm trajectory daily / hourly as weather patterns are as unpredictable - reliability of forecasts diminish over time.
  • Tens of thousands of FEMA trailers distributed in the wake of 2005 Hurricane Katrina still have toxic levels of formaldehyde, literally embalming occupants.
  • The VIN numbers are tagged on the trailer hitch side and searchable in the online database.
  • All trailer denizens are advised to check the FEMA trailer search online. Any formaldehyde readings above 6-8 ppm are deemed carcinogenic - FEMA trailers regularly register 14 times that figure.

Arch Crawford, head of Crawford Perspectives for 41 consecutive years, rejoins the show with comments on the gold rally, the financial markets as well as Hurricane Florence, a category 4 storm headed directly for the Tar Heel State. Gold remains the de facto dollar alternative given that over 96% of the Greenback's value has eroded since 1913. Arch Crawford cautions US equities investors that Sept. / Oct. are typically very challenging months for the shares indexes. The discussion shifts over to the cryptos, where Ethereum broke below $200, touching $170. Although our guest notes positive price behavior, if the panic spreads to Bitcoin it could lead to a retest of $5700. Meanwhile, the southeast is bracing for winds of up to 130 mph and strong tidal surges by Thursday evening. Similar to last year's Hurricane Harvey that decimated Puerto Rico and surrounding islands all the way up to NC, where power outages were widespread for days following the storm, officials have already declared a state of emergency and evacuations are underway. The current inland trajectory reveal high odds that the storm will pass due north of Atlanta, covering upper South Carolina including the Greater Greenville region, north to Asheville and Charlotte. Western North Carolina will be impacted, such as Cashiers, Glenville, Cullowhee, Sapphire, Sylva, Hayesville, etc. However, it is advisable to check the current storm trajectory daily / hourly as weather patterns are as unpredictable as turbulence where the reliability of forecasts diminish over time. According to the work of Henri Poincare via the Three Body Problem, storms fall into the category of chaotic systems, that that make only initial conditions highly perfectible, so the storm path could shift at a moments notice. Side note - tens of thousands of FEMA trailers distributed in the wake of 2005 Hurricane Katrina still have toxic levels of formaldehyde, literally embalming occupants - the VIN numbers are tagged on the trailer hitch side and searchable in the online database - all trailer denizens are advised to check the FEMA trailer search online. Any formaldehyde readings above 6-8 ppm are deemed carcinogenic - FEMA trailers regularly register 14 times that figure.

Professor Laurence Kotlikoff, from Kotlikoff.net and author of the FREE book: You're Hired! says gold and silver investors could emerge victorious amid the shackles of over $200 trillion in total US debt / financial obligations and a potential trade war with key trading partners. Investors should procure portfolio insurance such as gold while curtailing US equities / Treasuries exposure. While unfair trade imbalances have existed for decades, our guest questions the wisdom of threats from Washington to impose an additional $200 billion in tariffs on China - the trade skirmish has already impacted lumber imports from Canada that increased the average new home prices by over $9,000. The professor notes the US government is bankrupt, which makes long-term Treasuries risky relative to shorter term US notes as well as US equities that appear to be expensive from a valuation basis. The American per capital savings rate has plunged in recent decades from 15% (similar to Japan / China currently) to 3%, suggesting very little flexibility of the typical domestic home to withstand unforeseen economic hardships.

The latest Listener's Q&A segment includes phone calls on the timely topics of gold, the Kinesis project and stocks / bonds from friends of the show, Marcus, Trenton and longtime listener John in Sunny San Diego. Marcus begins the dialogue with comments on the gold backed cryptocurrency project from Down Under, Kinesis regarding key team member's, Andrew Maguire and CEO Coughlin. According to Goldseek's top brass, the Kinesis digital currency project appears to be legit: latest Kinesis project paper in .PDF form. One key caveat, initial public offerings are very tricky to navigate and involve higher than typical risks. For instance, the Komodo ICO was a stealth currency with an excellent underwriter and in such demand pre-ICO that 30 days of attempts were oftentimes required just to place a buy order. While Komodo was one of the best performers in history, following the opening day the token price crashed from the 50 fold the ICO price to the pre-ICO price over a few weeks. The key takeaway point; in most cases and for most investors it is advisable to wait for an ICO to enter the public market arena so that organic price discovery can reveal true value. Another case in point, the SALT lending platform ICO was solid and vetted every single US investor, thousands of hours of professional due diligence followed. Nevertheless, the price dropped abruptly from the opening price and remains in recovery mode. One advisable source for ICOs is the Smith - Crown website. Unless a solid ICO is available at pre-ICO offering earliest bird discounted prices, oftentimes called the beta level, it is typically advisable to wait for a weekly chart bottom following an ICO. Regarding the COMEX gold / paper contract ratio, we’ve heard from years from the GATA.org folks that there’s simply little gold to cover the contracts, something like 1 / 100 ounces / contract and James Turk regularly warned our listeners that a force majeure could unfold at any point where the exchange simply defaulted on the gold obligations. Elsewhere, shifts in the yield curve indicate a flattening yield curve including expectations that the short yield could eclipse the longer yield by summer of 2019, as the Fed wraps up it’s rate hike cycle and the EU / China / Japan finally turn hawkish following the Fed, in turn putting the greenback under pressure. Market forces could soon favor the Yen, Yuan and Euros over the dollar in anticipation of higher yields. It could also put pressure on the US stock market advance as soon as January of 2019, as investors anticipate the rise of alternative currencies and the positive impact on competing indexes such as the Nikkei, DAX, and in Shanghai. Lastly, Trenton claims to be an an investor in the sound deck.io blockchain that could potentially ignite a creativity revolution as artists have greater incentives to create and share their best work. It is advisable that everyone do their own due diligence and remain vigilant to the risks associated with new projects.
