Opinions expressed are those of the writer, and may or may not reflect those held by Euro Pacific Capital, or its CEO, Peter Schiff. By: John Browne Friday, July 14, 2017 Email Any news that emerged from last week’s G-20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany was bound to be overshadowed by the high theater of the first-ever meeting between U.S. President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. As a result, the biggest actual development from the Summit garnered very little attention in the American media. In fact, it […]

The Boomers Are Aging Fast… Time to Make Money Now

If you’ve followed my writing for any length of time, you know how much respect I have for Harry and his demographic work. Believe it or not, Harry, and his approach to forecasting, gave me the confidence to help launch Peak Income – an income newsletter – at a time when most investors were terrified of yield-focused investments. The consensus two years ago was that inflation and higher bond yields were just around the corner, which would’ve meant a rough ride for the kind of investments I recommend. In retrospect, that claim seems almost absurd. Inflation is still dead on […]

The Fed May Show Trump No Love

Our weekly commentaries provide Euro Pacific Capital’s latest thinking on developments in the global marketplace. Opinions expressed are those of the writer, and may or may not reflect those held by Euro Pacific Capital. By: Peter Schiff Thursday, July 20, 2017 Email Typically, U.S. Presidents are wary of claiming stock market performance as a referendum on their success. Most have seemed to understand that taking credit also means accepting blame, and no one would want to make the tortured argument that the positive moves reflect well on their presidency but that the negative moves do not. But Donald Trump has […]

The Dark Side of Jesse Livermore

Jesse Livermore is commonly cited as one of the best market speculators of all time. But is this true?   On the one hand he did invent solid trading rules that have stood the test of time: Cut Your Losses: Never average down and never hope your losses reverse. Just cut them. Infinite Patience: Good trades are rare. Trade for profits, not for action. Learn Macro: Understanding general conditions is essential to market mastery. Price Action Is King: Learn to read the tape and don’t argue with markets — they know more than you. Bet Big / Sit Tight: Ride […]

Would You Like To Steal 128 Million Dollars?

What would you do with 128 million dollars?  Many people like to daydream about winning the lottery, and I have to admit that when I was much younger I would do the same thing.  If you were suddenly financially set for life, you could quit your job, buy your dream home, travel the world and spend your days doing whatever you felt like doing.  We only get one trip through this crazy journey called life, and an enormous mountain of cash could make the journey a whole lot nicer.  So if you could steal 128 million dollars and be absolutely […]

Does the National Debt Matter for Silver Prices? [Explained w/ Charts]

Silver currently sells around $ 16, which would be sensible if the U.S. national debt was much less than its current $ 20 trillion. Given the massive national debt and 100 years of experience, silver prices could easily be double or triple their current prices, and far higher in a panic. WHY? Examine over a century of official national debt data graphed on a log scale. Official debt in 1913 was $ 3 billion. Since then it has risen 8% to 9% every year to reach $ 20 trillion or $ 20,000 billion. Debt will continue rising as long as […]

Washington D.C. Is Essentially Just A Gigantic Money Machine

If you have ever wondered why our leaders in Washington D.C. seem to act so strangely, the truth is that it almost always comes down to just one thing.  It has been said that “money makes the world go round”, and that is definitely true in Washington.  This year the federal government will spend more than 4 trillion dollars, and that represents well over one-fifth of our national GDP.  With so much money coming in and so much money going out, the stakes are incredibly high, and that is why so much money is poured into political campaigns on the […]

Every RINO Needs To Go

It looks like the effort to repeal Obamacare is completely dead, and that says a lot about the current state of the Republican Party.  For decades, RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) have been using labels such as “Republican”, “conservative”, “pro-gun” and “pro-life” to get elected, but then once they get into office they govern like Democrats.  There was so much hope when Donald Trump won the election last November, but thanks to the RINOs in Congress not much has actually been accomplished so far.  In fact, this is being called “the most unproductive Congress in 164 years”.  The following is […]

Why a Major Revolution Is Brewing

I have written many articles on how extremely polarized our politics has become in the last decade. I’ve dedicated several Leading Edge newsletters to the topic. I talked about it at our 2016 Irrational Economic Summit. I even discuss it briefly in my new book, Trump, Brexit, and the Next Civil War, which will be available around mid-August. I talk about it so much because it’s related to the mega 250-Year Revolution Cycle sweeping over us right now. We’ll feel the effects of this cycle for decades to come… which I detail in my new book. But today I want […]
