Why Trump Won & The Peak of Globalization

Fareed Zakaria just put out a special show on why Trump won: He got the rural white vote in unprecedented margins – like 80% plus. Even before Election Day, we put out an infographic explaining why Trump could win despite the polls. Still, even I was a little surprised when he won! I bring this up again now, not to bash Trump, but to highlight the demographic and cyclical explanation behind his victory. And to show that the events that brought Trump into power aren’t done stirring things up. There’s a lot more to come. Trump is only the beginning… […]

If You Stand With Trump, Please Support #TeamTrump Candidates For Congress

Do you stand with President Trump? If so, I would like to ask you to support #TeamTrump candidates for Congress all over the nation. I am running on a pro-Trump platform in Idaho’s first congressional district, and so far I have created an enormous amount of buzz all over the state. But in order to win, I have to get my message out to hundreds of thousands of potential voters that are not familiar with my work, and that is going to take a lot of time, effort, energy and resources. It is humbling to be in a position where […]

Did A Novelist From The 1800s Warn Us In Advance That Donald Trump Would Be ‘The Last President’?

I am about to share with you one of the strangest things that I have come across in a very long time.  In the late 1800s, author Ingersoll Lockwood wrote a series of novels which appear to have striking parallels to events happening today.  In his first two novels, The Travels and Adventures of Little Baron Trump and His Wonderful Dog Bulgar and Baron Trump’s Marvelous Underground Journey, an extremely wealthy little boy with “a very active brain” named Baron Trump is guided on a series of extraordinary adventures by a man known as “Don”.  And if you can believe […]

Republican Congress to Betray Trump Voters

The single-digit approval rating of Congress means precious few people still expect much from the politicians running Washington DC. Expectations should now ratchet even lower as representatives once again demonstrate just how far their words are from their deeds. We’ll start with healthcare. The U.S. Senate failed in yet another effort to repeal and replace Obamacare. The prospects for reform any time soon are approaching zero. Voters opposed to the skyrocketing premiums, the ballooning federal expenditures and the huge expansion in government control associated with the Affordable Care Act are bewildered. The program is an obvious train wreck. Republicans in […]

The EU and Japan Move Closer

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, 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.

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 […]

Co-Author of Art of the Deal Says Trump Will Resign, then Declare Victory

This is what I predicted the day after Trump’s election. He has the impulse control of a grease fire. And he certainly can’t admit when he’s wrong, even though he changes his mind on one policy or view after the next. There’s something disturbing about that. More disturbing than Richard Nixon’s paranoia that led to the Watergate scandal. Andrew Pancholi, a close friend and author of The Market Timing Report, has a 45-year cycle that corresponds to the Watergate crisis in 1972. The cycle rolls around again this year! Trump is making an enemy out of the media. Yes, reporters, […]
