August 27, 2020 | Freeconomics

In 1993 I completely lost it and ran for the leadership of the federal Progressive Conservative party. That’s back when being a Con meant you worried more about finances than diddling. Socially liberal. Fiscally conservative. Worked for me. Well, there was a big convention in Ottawa. Ten thousand people. And while my chances of winning […]

August 27, 2020 | Traders Freak Out Over…Well, We’re Not Actually Sure

Thursday’s psychotic price action showed what’s on the tiny, fevered brains of traders as they continue to drive the broad averages to ridiculous heights.

August 27, 2020 | Is California Over?

By now it’s painfully obvious that we humans tend to ruin our favorite places by overrunning them. And no place makes this point better than California.

August 26, 2020 | Election Chaos & Civil War

August 26, 2020 | Roach: America’s Coming Double Dip

Economist Stephen Roach’s latest piece in Project Syndicate is worth reading, see America’s coming double-dip.

August 26, 2020 | News You Can Use

Go Prefs! When the virus came to town central banks crashed interest rates, crushing bond yields and preferred share values. Bond prices jumped, but prefs tanked.

August 25, 2020 | The Threat to Gold

QUESTION:  In regards to your last post about Bitcoin and your comment that there may be a “threat regarding gold”, as well. What kind of threat do you think? If you own precious metals as a store of value and assume at some point you may need to use it to pay for things, they […]

August 25, 2020 | Why They Buy

  This week the cowboy running our federal housing outfit raged on Twitter against a twit realtor. Well, to be fair, Owen Bigland actually has an outsized opinion of himself. The Vancouver agent has a blog, a book, a degree and boasts he’s been a successful life-long real estate investor. But that don’t impress Evan […]

August 25, 2020 | The Real Story Behind the Fed

Last week we saw how the “banksters” (i.e. central banks) do all they can to keep the herd under their spell … creating a world of illusion where a tiny segment of society takes advantage of everyone else by … 1) The booms and busts they create to pad their wallets and … 2) Via our […]

August 25, 2020 | Tyranny is Indistinguishable when used by Kings or Career Politicians

What is going on in New Zealand and Melbourne is the complete rejection of every principle of liberty, which has degenerated into a tyrannical coup.

August 25, 2020 | From Lockdown to Police State: the “Great Reset” Rolls Out

Mayhem in Melbourne On August 2, lockdown measures were implemented in Melbourne, Australia, that were so draconian that Australian news commentator Alan Jones said on Sky News: “People are entitled to think there is an ‘agenda to destroy western society.’” The gist of an August 13th article on the Melbourne lockdown is captured in the […]

August 25, 2020 | Natural Gas Rally Nearing $2.95 Resistance – May Target $3.75 or higher

Quietly, as we’ve been focused on Gold, Silver, and other symbols, Natural Gas has rallied above the $2.00 level and is starting to break higher again targeting the $2.95 level.  The very deep “rounded bottom” pattern that set up in early 2020 presented a very real opportunity for skilled technical traders by setting up multiple, […]
