The Ultimate Safe-Haven Asset. A Looming Nobel Prize?

By Arkadiusz Sieroń – Re-Blogged From Gold Eagle

Yesterday, the Nobel prizes in economics were awarded. Unfortunately, gold has been omitted and got nothing. How unfair! But looking at the Dutch central bank press release, gold would have much higher chances if they were the ones granting the prizes and not the Swedish central bank!

2019 Nobel in Economics and Gold

Yesterday was a big day! At least for all those boring economists and similar bean-counters. The Nobel Prize in economics was awarded. Abhijit Banerjee, Esther Duflo, and Michael Kremer became 2019 laureates for their experimental approach to alleviating global poverty.

Nice! But, dear Nobel Committee, we also have great ideas how to reduce poverty in the world. Just give everyone some gold! We know, that’s not the quick road to wealth, but whatever the current outlook, gold portfolios should appreciate substantially in the long run.

Radical Leftist Bill Seeks To Deny Life-Saving Surgeries To Adults Over The Age of 70

The latest attack on human rights is geared towards the elderly and you won’t believe what liberals want to do now.

Yet again determined to falsely assume the role as God, liberals are attempting to decide who lives and who dies.

And if the radical left-wing party in the Netherlands get their way – those who are older will lose access to medical care permanently.

Pension Crisis In US And Globally Is Unavoidable

By Lance Roberts – Re-Blogged From http://www.Silver-Phoenix500.com

There is a really big crisis coming.

Think about it this way. After 8 years and a 230% stock market advance the pension funds of Dallas, Chicago, and Houston are in severe trouble.

But it isn’t just these municipalities that are in trouble, but also most of the public and private pensions that still operate in the country today.

EU Crisis Becoming Existential…Dutch Vote Tomorrow And Why It Matters

By Mark O’Byrne – Re-Blogged From http://www.Gold-Eagle.com

The leader of the National Front in France, Marine Le Pen, has hailed Britain’s decision to leave the EU – and has called for France to hold a similar referendum

The EU is facing an existential crisis and does not look like it will survive the massive political and financial challenges it is faced with. This has ramifications for investors in the EU itself and globally as the collapse of one of the world’s largest trading blocs will badly impact already fragile global economic growth and increasingly “frothy” looking financial markets – particularly stock and bond markets.

The existential crisis facing the EU, the Dutch elections tomorrow and the coming elections in France and Germany and the risks increasingly likely EU contagion poses to Asian economies and the global economy is considered by True Wealth’s Kim Iskyan today:

Will Mid-March Madness Maul the Stock Market in 2017?

By David Haggith – Re-Blogged From Great Recession Blog

Many of the 2017 economic headwinds I’ve described will hit during the Ides of March, just as the Trump stock-market Rally shows signs of topping out. This might not be the Great Epocalypse — not all at once anyway — but a large and likely correction is looming. I think the bear is about to be let out of his cage.

Chaos emerged in emerging-market stocks last week, bond prices plummeted (yields rose to match their last 2016 high), stock-market volatility rose, and the Dow took its worst drop in 2017. Copper prices, a bellwether for recessionary conditions, saw their worst week since last September. It looked like the Trump rally in almost everything was rolling over last week, and that takes us into this week when several likely big bangs are scheduled to hit on the same day.
