The War On Whistleblowers & Why America's Next President Will Kill Julian Assange

"I’m worried about Julian Assange. This is not a maternal instinct, but rather, a pragmatic one. The increasingly hostile statements made by top state officials and their surrogates show a widespread condemnation of whistleblowers in the halls of government. President Obama set the tone early in his administration. In the case of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, the rhetoric goes well beyond condemnation of methodology and straight to advocating for his brutal murder."

The Number One Factor Influencing Fed Monetary Policy

In short, the economic model of the second half of the 20th century is over.  Increased issuances of debt no longer translate into increased economic growth.  Instead, they produce wild asset price swings, casino style speculation, and epic bubbles and busts.  Nonetheless, the technocrats continue offering up yesterday’s solutions with unabashed certainty.

Introducing America's Winningest Political Candidate: "Lesser Evil"

The political duopoly in America simply does not work; nor does it offer hope for a future cohesive society. It may have reasonably worked in the past because of our very gifted, blessed economic advantages... but those advantages are either gone or exiting fast.

What is happening this year is astounding. After saying year after year after year that the recovery is coming, and even doing so to the point of condescension, the admissions of wrongfulness are starting to roll in, if only softly at first. How ludicrous does “transitory” look now?

Inventory Growth Slowdown Dashes Hopes For Q3 GDP Bounce Back

Following the surge in sales (on higher petroleum costs) in June (and modest build in inventories), the sales-stock ratio fell back from cycle highs (though remained deep in recessionary territory). July's preliminary data showed a notable slowdown in inventories (-0.02% vs a 0.1% expected gain and revised lower 0.2%) confirming recent PMI data of no pickup in growth in Q3. For 32 months straight, inventory growth has outpacced sales growth year-over-year with 18 straight months of wholesale sales declines.

GoldCore's picture

Possibly, the most vitriolic, hateful and divisive election in U.S. history is set to be witnessed and this will likely lead to considerable volatility in markets and should see the dollar come under pressure. Seasonally gold is entering the sweet spot with the Autumn being gold's best season and with September being gold's best month (see chart)
