The Edelson Institute - The histories of North America’s rushes for gold and silver are filled with outrageous stories and larger-than-life characters. And here’s one you haven’t heard before: A massive silver rush, one that was started by a wild fox. It’s an incredible tale ripped from the pages from history. But it holds lessons for today’s investors. Let […]

The Edelson Institute - My family loves the Pirate of the Caribbean movies, and pirates in general. We live in Florida, which doesn’t have areas named “The Gold Coast” and “The Treasure Coast” for nothing. Ye deadly lass bears a little likeness to a real pirate. What I really find interesting is the economics of piracy, I’m talking about […]

June 10th, 2018 | Dust in the Wind

The Edelson Institute - A huge bull market in commodities suddenly takes a downturn. Equities are getting clobbered. The nation is groaning under insurmountable debts after the banks throw caution to the wind. Some people say the market is over-regulated — others that it’s not regulated enough. And weird weather is making headlines — in fact, some people think […]

The Edelson Institute - El Dorado … Cibola … Quivira … these are all fabled “lost cities of gold” that fired up the imaginations of explorers who pursued their dreams to the four corners of the Earth. These cities only existed in the fevered imaginations of storytellers. But there was a real city of gold … or at least, […]

The Edelson Institute - The U.S. seems to be getting more involved in the Middle East all the time. There are many reasons why, but any cynical analyst will tell you that control of oil resources is at the heart of the matter. I’m a history buff, so I can tell you that Uncle Sam isn’t the first to […]

The Edelson Institute - Gold rushes in Canada have all the exciting elements of one of the old pulp action-adventure novel. Greed, bloodlust, native Americans, Chinese prospectors! For example, let’s look at the Cariboo Gold Rush. When I say “Cariboo Gold Rush,” you may say “What?” Most people have forgotten what was the most exciting event of its day. […] Radio - European Banking Crisis and Geopolitics

The Edelson Institute - Martin asked subscribers for their views, hopes and fears. And many of you wrote in. Some of those questions seem better suited to me. So, I thought I would field them here. And it gives me a chance to answer questions on gold, dividends, and more. Colby N. writes … I have a membership in Supercycle […]

The Edelson Institute - You can’t turn on the TV without hearing that stocks are overpriced by this or that metric. Well, let me tell you, there is a market right now that is priced in pennies compared to where it is going to be down the road. And investors with steel in their spines will want to buy […]

The Edelson Institute - Man, the prices at the pump are soaring. Why is that? Isn’t America pumping more oil than ever? What the ding-dang is going on? Well, I’ll explain not only why gasoline prices are high, but what you can do about it. First, you know oil is a global market, right? It gets pumped and shipped […]

The Edelson Institute - There is a metal on the launchpad right now. And I’m not talking about silver or gold. Those both look good … but this metal could be even hotter. I’m talking about copper. Copper is said to have its “Ph.D. in economics.” We call the metal “Doctor Copper” because it takes the pulse of the […]

May 15th, 2018 | Marijuana Merger Radio - Record S&P 500 company share buy-backs

The Edelson Institute - You’re going to buy an electric car. Maybe not today, maybe not next week. But soon. That’s because the electric vehicle (EV) wave is coming, and it is a monster. And a recent development nailed that fact home. What happened? I’ll tell you. Volkswagen (OTC Pink: VLKAY) just placed orders for EV batteries worth $48 billion. FORTY-EIGHT […]

May 1st, 2018 | Gold and the US Dollar Radio - Uranium Starting a Charge?

The Edelson Institute - The stock market is enough to drive people crazy. Action is bullish … bearish … a mix of both! Then the president tweets, and it’s like someone kicked the chessboard in the air. It’s stressful! The good news is, there’s a bull sneaking up on you right now. And that’s a bull you can ride […]

The Edelson Institute - When it comes to one investment, most investors are like an oblivious pedestrian walking across a busy highway. Cars go honk-HONK! The pedestrian finally starts to notice where he is. Then, WHAM! A bus comes along and turns that pedestrian into road pizza. Friends, I don’t want you to be road pizza. Please, please, look […]

The Edelson Institute - The great Green Wave is coming. By that, I mean the next big round of cannabis profits. Today, I’m going to tell you about some potential winners, some losers and one way you can play it. First of all, you know the legal cannabis market is going to be huge, right? Canada has already legalized […]

The Edelson Institute - Gold ran up in the days ahead of the U.S. missile strikes on Syria, as the world held its collective breath against the manure hitting the fan. It turns out the missiles were on target, no one got killed, and the world breathed a collective sigh of relief. But you know what? Someone forgot to […] Radio - Political pressure eases US Federal attack on Marijuana

The Edelson Institute - Have you seen the action in gold lately? It’s good. The action in miners is even better. The miners are no longer hitting the snooze button. They’re waking up, shaking off the cobwebs, and looking ready to seize the day. And that’s weird. Because the news for gold this week should have been B-A-D. And […]

The Edelson Institute -   So, we’re going to war. Trade war, that is. President Trump slapped China with $50 billion in potential tariffs. China responded with $50 billion of their own proposed tariffs (sorry, America’s soybean farmers). The President’s response was the equivalent of: “Ha-ha-ha! Unleash our tariff death ray!” He rolled out another $100 billion in proposed tariffs on […]

April 3rd, 2018 | US/China Trade War? Radio - US Trade Policy

The Edelson Institute - In Saturday’s column, we talked about why President Trump’s decisions on trade tariffs and security are good for gold. You can read it here: “Cry Havoc! And Grab Gold.” Last week, we saw gold post its biggest weekly gain since 2016. That’s what made me so bullish. My fear was I might be too early. That […]

March 26th, 2018 | Cry Havoc! And Grab Gold

The Edelson Institute - “Cry havoc! And let slip the dogs of war!” — Mark Antony in William Shakespeare’s play Julius Caesar. The U.S. is gearing up for war on multiple fronts: the trade front and actual, physical conflict. This is sending stocks and bonds on the Devil’s own roller coaster. The Dow reeled from its biggest one-day drop […] Radio - US Now Producing More Oil than Demanded
