Permadove Chuck Evans Speaks, Precious Metals Soar

Tyler Durden's picture

Gold and Silver and surging this morning as the Fed's Charles Evans talks on CNBC of the need for more accomodative policy by the Fed. His 'infiniter' easing seems to have sparked this move as he clarifies the seeming psychopathy of the Federal Reserve's actions. His message clearly is that the amount doesn't matter (nor the unintended consequences), the printing and flooding of money into an already stuffed banking system will continue until morale improves.

Evans says that higher interest rates are good, but higher rates now would be bad, because everything would crash again, so lower rates are good. So savers would end up getting screwed anyway. So it is better to start screwing them now. I think these guys are freaking lunatics.

Lunatics?  I'd agree with you if I actually thought that they believe the BS they are spewing.  They know exactly what they are doing and why.

ElvisDog's picture

Couldn't agree more. Bernanke knows that lowering interest rates or QE doesn't create jobs or encourage J6P to borrow more money, but he has to go through the motions of claiming that he's doing all this to "maximize employment in the context of price stability". He does this to continue the $40B a month transfer to the big banks.

To make a football analogy, people complain that the comissioner of the NFL, Roger Goodell, favors the owners when he does things. Of course he does, because he works for and is paid by the owners. Same with the Fed. They are not civil servants working for the public good. They are paid by and are presidents of a collection of private banks.

Savers screwed? They should save in pm's, and buy with paper. Stupid savers.

Yea, the quivering never stops even when he sleeps, give the man some meds. 


The fed cant be audited so they can buy anything they want and turn the losses back to the treasury. 


Thats scary.

Tyler, to report and remember us that it still sucks. It's a dirty job, but someone's got to do it.


BTW did anyone else notice the PM haters are nowhere to be seen lately?

BigJim's picture

They'll be back, at the bottom of the next correction, to say the top is in, and Sell! Sell! Sell!

They do it as a public service, out of their infinite concern for us.

CNBC serves a purpose, and a master. It only takes one person to watch and spread the news through their lens.

Meesohaawnee's picture

they are an embarrassment. they are just an infomercial. nothing different than what you see on sat  morn. its so painful to watch what little i do

The economy is in trouble?

Perhaps we should try printing some money? Has anyone though of that?

I like it!  You don't work for the government, do you?  

EscapeKey's picture

Well, we all do. I didn't build that.

GetZeeGold's picture



You don't build print it.


JimBowie1958's picture

Actually, they dont even print most of it any more. Just move electrons around and call it money.

 I like it!  You don't work for the government, do you?  

According to my Inland Revenue tax demand, that's exactly whom I work for.

NorthenSoul's picture

The government say it illegal...or something like that. Not that said government is bothered by such triffles when comes the time for them to do whatever they please.

Nice chart, morning wood.

Wood? New all time highs for gold in Euros.

Yeah!  Keep him talking, my wife needs some new shoes.  Might be inclined to part with some more fiat if PMs are up.

They have no clue.

Stackers's picture

Sadly they do have a clue, they just find the destruction of the American middle class as an acceptable cost to maintaining their banking cartel

1fortheroad's picture

Its just not the destruction of the American middle class, its way more evil than that.


They want complete controll before everyone wakes up.

The Banking cartel is only a tool.

Take that away, maybe we have a chance.

If you happened to watch, he tends to talk while looking with head down and eyes upward...also the dark circles under the eyes.... and you have the look of evil.

If you are a saver or retired, get ready for more ass raping.

Oh regional Indian's picture

A lot of that crappy, smelly easy liquidity is sloshing over here and killing middle India. 

Inflation exportation on steroids, dis-courtsey the FED/ECB.

Benny Bucks the trend...


jekyll island's picture

Tell everyone "Your Welcome" from us here in the states.  Inflation is our biggest export and with those cool new printers, manufacturing costs are at an all time low.  

EscapeKey's picture

Well, someone launch a gold backed currency.

"Currency Wars" starts with an economic war experiment, in which Russia launches a new gold backed currency. American Keynesians attempt to discredit this, as it would "never happen in real life".

Just like hyperinflations. They don't exist in the minds of Keynesians. HyperDEFLATIONS, however - despite noone ever having seen one, now THOSE are scary monsters, which we need to throw everything including the kitchen sink at.

Oh regional Indian's picture

Deflation = Death to the Supply Siders (Keynes/Freidman/Krugwoman... the lot)

Inflation = Till the balloon bursts... partaaaay!


Zadok's picture

It appears to me that the reason that won't happen is because it would end the Ponzi. All that perpetuates the Ponzi goes, and all that would end it is resisted. Hence, claim to fight deflation and pretend inflation doesn't exist. Isaiah 5:20

It's hard to remember what life was like before the algos...

Oh regional Indian's picture

A lot slower for sure Sean.

All around...

With all this additional printing of FRNs, mattress sales are booming.  Karl "The Hammer" Denninger just ordered five new king size ones.

"PMs flying. WTF! This prick need to get with the program!"

J Dimon.

When in doubt give Dimon & Blankfein bigger bonuses.

They need to print a lot more to keep the banks from dying and then to give them the illusion of profits.  At some point they are going to try and get ahead of the issue and fix it all at once.  As long as the banks are a mess and the Fed has freedom to print, the printing will continue.

NorthenSoul's picture

As long as the banks are a mess...


As long as the banks are permitted to be an engineered mess, the priting will continue, courtesy of the infinite cowardice and moral depravity of the Wall Street - DC Axis of Greed.


The correct way to solve this problem for generations to come is to do what Icelanders forced their politicians to do.
