A Fed Policy That Will Increase the Gold Price

Higher interest rates actually provide banks the incentive to lend. So while investors worry about a Fed taper and higher rates, it is exactly what is needed to spur lending, employment, and money creation.

Nobel Prize Winner: Bubbles Don’t Exist

No wonder investors don't take economists seriously. Or if they do, they shouldn't. Since Richard Nixon interrupted Hoss and Little Joe on a Sunday night in August 1971, it's been one boom and bust after another. But don't tell that to the latest Nobel Prize co-winner, Eugene Fama, the founder of the efficient-market hypothesis.

Federal Reserve Policy Failures Are Mounting

The Fed's capabilities to engineer changes in economic growth and inflation are asymmetric. It has been historically documented that central bank tools are well suited to fight excess demand and rampant inflation...

Debt: Still Cheap, and Getting Looser

Suddenly, borrowing and lending is all the rage again. The financial crash was five years ago this fall, and nobody is letting us forget it. According to ex-FDIC Chair Sheila Bair, financial soundness isn't much improved

The Federal Reserve Relies on a Flawed Economic Model

The Fed's polices have not produced the much-promised re-acceleration in economic growth. In the first half of 2013 as well as the latest four quarters, the real GDP growth rate was a paltry 1.4%...

Why a Uranium Renaissance Looks Inevitable

Casey Research's Chief Energy Investment Strategist, Marin Katusa, whose portfolio profited nicely the last time the uranium bull broke loose a decade ago, recently interviewed a group of world-renowned energy experts to discuss the prospects for the sector that some considered doomed by the Fukushima disaster.

New Cold War: The “Putinization” of Uranium

How will Russian President Putin's efforts to squeeze the nuclear energy sector affect the uranium market?

Putin’s Power Play - How It Will Change the Uranium Sector

There’s a new Cold War brewing – and this time it’s not about military power…

America’s Addiction to Foreign Uranium

The end of a little-known energy agreement that signals the beginning of a surge for "the other yellow metal."

Handicapping the Potential Successors to Ben Bernanke

In economics as in policing, the bad guys always get to take the first shot. From the central banker's perspective, the bad guy in the current regime is the real economy.

How Rockefeller Parlayed Pipelines into Billions

For at least two thousand years, the Chinese of Sichuan, in south-central China, have dug or drilled holes to tap a briny aquifer, the trapped remains of an ancient inland sea.

Wireless Technology Is Ushering In a New Era of Computing

A transformation is happening in the world of telecommunications: a technology improvement known as "LTE" now allows for the transfer of data to mobile devices at speeds equivalent to home Digital Subscriber Lines (DSL) Internet connections.

Another Layer of Bureaucracy for Oil and Gas Exploration in the US?

Federal and tribal lands hold large reserves of oil and natural gas. At a time when the United States desperately needs to move toward, not away from, energy independence, it makes no sense to let bureaucratic meddling effectively place these valuable domestic reserves out of reach. The problems with BLM's approach are myriad.

All Debt Is Not Created Equal

The US has too much debt. This is no longer a controversial statement. Some may believe other problems are more urgent, or that we need to grow our way out rather than slash spending. But even the most spendthrift pundits acknowledge that the debt-to-GDP ratio of the US must decrease if we are to have a stable, prosperous economy.

G. Edward Griffin On The Fed’s Real Purpose

Is the Federal Reserve really doing such a bad job… or does it actually do exactly what it's supposed to do, but the average American is in the dark about what that is?

Are Businesses Quietly Preparing for a Financial Apocalypse?

That's without including banks. I'm only talking about nonfinancial corporations – the ones that sell goods and services and make the economy go. US corporations are sitting on more cash than at any point since World War 2.

Lacy Hunt: "No Increase in Standard of Living Since 1997"

There's a belief among certain economists – and the wider population – that if the government takes a more active role in the economy, the social outcome can be improved. Dr. Lacy Hunt, executive VP of Hoisington Investment Management Company (HIMCO), says it's a false belief… and he has proof to back it up. An unprecedented buildup of debt, he shows, can only lead to one outcome: a drop in Americans' standard of living.

Invest in What China Needs to Buy: Don Coxe

The US is no longer the safest place in the world to invest, says Don Coxe, a strategic advisor to the BMO Financial Group. While US-based companies are forced to wade through red tape and legal challenges, relatively lax regulation in emerging economies created stiff competition.

Doug Casey Uncovers the Real Price of Peak Oil

Doug Casey, chairman of Casey Research and expert on crisis investing, is on the search for real wealth – not investments in companies that push around paper. In this exclusive interview with The Energy Report, Casey shares his pragmatic take on what's next for oil, gas, and nuclear power.

Unintended Consequences of Well-Intended Policies

In the early 1960s, when JFK was in the White House and William McChesney Martin was Fed chairman, Keynesian economics was in full bloom. One of its major tenets is the Phillips Curve, which posits a stable inverse relationship between the rate of inflation and the unemployment rate.
