    I was originally going to title this post "Jackie DeAngelis Must Die", but I thought she might take it the wrong way.

Why The Fed Can't, And Won't, Let The Stock Market Crash





Why can't, or rather won't, the Fed let the bubble market collapse once again? Simple - as the following chart shows, the illusion of wealth is now most critical when preserving the myth of the welfare state: some 50% of all US pension fund assets are invested in stocks and only 20% in Treasurys.

David Rosenberg Channels Felix Zulauf





"We are witnessing the biggest financial-market manipulation of all time. The authorities have intervened more and more, and thereby created this monster. They might change the rules when the game goes against their own interests. We are in a severe credit crunch. It starts when the weakest links in the system can't finance their activities. Then you have a flight to safety into Treasuries and German bunds, compounded by a quasi-shortage of good collateral. That's why bond yields have fallen so low. This isn't an inflationary environment but a deflationary one."

Guest Post: Fred Hickey - If We Continue Down This Path, the Outlook is General Impoverishment for the Country





A few weeks ago, I asked Fred Hickey what he would do as chairman of the Federal Reserve. In the remainder of our interview, I asked Fred whether we can avoid recessions in a business cycle, what will happen to the US Dollar, how our creditors are behaving, and what advice he can offer given the new economic environment.

Fred Hickey On Gold





With the inexplicable recent reorientation by a traditionally very erudite, pragmatic and realistic Jim Grant (well, not that inexplicable) into what can only be described as pulling some serious wool over his readers' eyes, we decided to fall back to our other favorite newsletter writer: the inimitable Fred Hickey who writes The High-Tech Strategist. While we can not find enough praise for his work, it bears pointing out that whereas one may accuse Grant of selling out, such an accusation will be impossible of Mr. Hickey, who is a florid, objective and insightful as always, and maybe more so now than ever. His latest letter, Fighting the Fed, is a must read for all, and while we wish we had the copyright latitude to repost it in whole, we would like to at least share Fred's thoughts on gold (among many other things, some of which have made his readers serious money over the years).
