Global Silver Mining Industry Productivity Falls; Lowest in History

After the Primary Silver Mining Industry enjoyed a brief increase in productivity over the past two years, it fell to the lowest ever in 2016. The reason the primary silver mining industry’saverage yield increased in 2014 was due to the addition of Tahoe Resources high-grade Escobal Silver Mine. Tahoe’s Escobal Silver Mine’s average yield in 2014 was an astonishing 16.3 ounce per ton (oz/t). Not only did Escobal Mine enjoy one the highest silver yields in the world, it produced over 20 million oz (Moz) in 2014. Thus, the addition of Tahoe to the Top Silver Miners pushed their average […]

The Global Famine Begins: UN Announces That The Worst Food Crisis Since World War II Is Happening Right Now

We always knew that this would start happening.  Earlier this month, I wrote about the severe economic problems that are plaguing South America, but up to this point I have neglected to discuss the horrific famines that are breaking out all over Africa.  Right now there is a desperate need for food in South Sudan, Somalia, northeast Nigeria, Eritrea and Kenya.  And Yemen, even though it is not technically part of Africa, is being affected by many of the same factors that are crippling nations all over eastern Africa.  The United Nations says that more than 20 million people could […]

$21,714 For Every Man, Woman And Child In The World – This Global Debt Bomb Is Ready To Explode

According to the International Monetary Fund, global debt has grown to a staggering grand total of 152 trillion dollars.  Other estimates put that figure closer to 200 trillion dollars, but for the purposes of this article let’s use the more conservative number.  If you take 152 trillion dollars and divide it by the seven billion people living on the planet, you get $ 21,714, which would be the share of that debt for every man, woman and child in the world if it was divided up equally. So if you have a family of four, your family’s share of the […]

March 2017: The End Of A 100 Year Global Debt Super Cycle Is Way Overdue

For more than 100 years global debt levels have been rising, and now we are potentially facing the greatest debt crisis in all of human history.  Never before have we seen such a level of debt saturation all over the planet, and pretty much everyone understands that this is going to end very, very badly at some point.  The only real question is when it will happen.  Many believe that the current global debt super cycle began when the Federal Reserve was established in 1913.  Central banks are designed to create debt, and since 1913 the U.S. national debt has […]

A Comprehensive Reading List For Global Macro Traders & Investors

The successful macro investor must be some magical mixture of an acute analyst, an investment scholar, a listener, a historian, a river boat gambler, and be a voraciousreader.

A Review Of Javier Gonzalez’s “How to Make Money with Global Macro”

The following review is straight from Operator Kean, a member of the Macro Ops Hub. To contact Kean, visit his website here. After reviewing Greg Gliner’s Global Macro Trading, I thought I’d work my way through another book — Javier Gonzalez’s How to Make Money with Global Macro. Since there isn’t much out there on global macro investing, this book naturally peaked my interest. First off, the title can be a bit misleading. One would get the impression that the book provides a set of money-making investment techniques, but in reality it does nothing of the sort. Instead, the author […]

Stealth Implosion of Global Markets Appears Unstoppable

The world doesn’t realize it yet, but the implosion of the global markets has started and can’t be stopped. While the financial networks continue to focus on the rising U.S. stock market and Dollar, this represents a mindset that has totally gone insane. Why? Because the rapidly increasing Dollar and broader U.S. stock market do not represent a healthy economy, rather it reveals the swelling of the cancerous U.S. financial tumor. The faster and larger it grows, the more it will endanger the U.S. economy. I am completely surprised by the lack of wisdom in the Mainstream and Alternative media […]

Global Financial Markets Plunged Into Chaos As Italy Overwhelmingly Votes ‘No’

Italian voters have embraced the global trend of rejecting the established world order, but the “no” vote on Sunday has plunged global financial markets into a state of utter chaos.  The euro has already fallen to a 20 month low, Italian government bonds are poised for a tremendous crash, and futures markets are indicating that both U.S. and European stock markets will be way down when they open on Monday.  It is being projected that Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi’s referendum on constitutional reforms will be defeated by about 20 percentage points when all the votes have been counted, and […]
