goldenjackassBy Greg Hunter’s    (Early Sunday Release)

Newsletter writer Dr. Jim Willie thinks the Ukraine crisis is an enormous struggle for financial power between East and West.  Dr. Willie contends, “I believe what we got with Ukraine is an absolutely desperate situation where the U.S. government realizes we have to stop Ukraine from becoming a central transit point for energy pipelines in the fast developing Eurasian Trade Zone.  They need to stop the Eurasian Trade Zone because the United States and England are largely going to be excluded.  (more…)

Russian Dollar Dump Could Crash Financial System-John Williams

John Williams: Gold Now, Russia-US Dollar and HyperinflationBy Greg Hunter’s  

Economist John Williams says if Russia sells its U.S. dollar holdings, it could trigger hyperinflation.  Could it collapse the financial system?  Williams contends, “Yes, it certainly has a potential to do that.  Looking outside the United States, there is something over $16 trillion in cash, or near cash.  That’s about the same size as our GDP.  . . Nobody has wanted to hold the dollar for some time.  The dollar, fundamentally, is weak.  It couldn’t be weaker.  All the major factors are against it.  It’s just a matter of what would trigger the massive selling.  Nobody wants to hold it.  The Russians start selling, and you have China indicating a general alliance here in terms of what’s transpiring.  If the rest of the world believes this is what’s going to happen, people who have been wanting to get out of the dollar for some time very easily could front-run the Russians.  The scare is on.  People will try to get out of it as rapidly as they can. 


War Could Cause Financial Domino, but We Could Have a Domino Without War-Eric Sprott

15By Greg Hunter’s 

$8 billion fund manager Eric Sprott says there is a big opportunity surfacing in precious metals.  Sprott contends, “I’ve always believed there is more demand than supply for the last 14 years.  I’ve documented it.  I am suggesting the western central banks have very little gold left.  I think the whole decline in the gold price is the liquidation in the ETFs to supply some of that shortfall.  I think manipulation and relief from the manipulation and the ongoing demand, well in excess of supply, is going to power gold higher.”

Debt Default Will Kill the Dollar-Brandon Smith

Brandon SmithBy Greg Hunter’s

Economic and political writer Brandon Smith thinks America is in deep financial trouble, and the Fed knows it.  Smith contends, “First of all, I’d like to point out that at the end of last year, I brought up the prospect to the alternative economics community that the ‘taper’ was real, that the Fed would start cutting QE stimulus.  I received a pretty negative response from that concept, which is understandable because a lot of people in alternative economics and the liberty movement are focused on the concept of hyperinflation through printing.  (more…)

Greg MannarinoBy Greg Hunter’s

Trader and financial analyst Gregory Mannarino was bullish on the stock market a few weeks ago, but he’s now done a 180.  Why the reversal?  Mannarino says, “What the Fed was doing was driving cash from the emerging markets into the U.S. equity market and driving cash into the U.S. bond market, and it worked . . . This is played out now . . . and I told everyone that this would not last. . . . We are right now on the precipice of a correction phase, and it could be severe. . . . (more…)

Retail Sales Drop was Enormous-Karl Denninger

Karl Denninger: Market Meltdown, Fed Tapering, Retail Sales and MoreBy Greg Hunter’s 

Financial writer and stock trader Karl Denninger says the most recent Obama Care delay is all about politics.  Denninger thinks, “It’s just simply an attempt to push the issue past the 2014 election . . . I suspect that if you really get down to it, it’s just simply about 50 to 60 million people were going to get cancelled, and it was going to happen about the end of September. . . . (more…)

We’re Going to be Hit with a Tsunami of Inflation-Peter Schiff

Peter Schiff: Gold 2014, More QE, Tsunami of Inflation & MoreBy Greg Hunter’s 

Money manager Peter Schiff has a read on gold short sellers.  Schiff says, “Of course the short sellers never had the gold to begin with.  They’re selling gold they don’t have, and I think the shorts are getting a little bit nervous, but they are going to get a lot more nervous as we turn up the heat here.  Gold is now above $1,300 (per ounce).  I think it’s going to be above $1,400 before they start to panic a little bit, and I think that’s great.”  Schiff goes on to say, “I like the fact the market is moving up and nobody is buying it, nobody is paying attention to it.  If they are, they are dismissing it.  People think this is a head fake or a dead cat bounce.  Instead, it’s the resumption of the (gold) bull market.”

100% Fake Recovery-Robert Wiedemer

4By Greg Hunter’s 

Robert Wiedemer, best-selling author of “The Aftershock Investor,” says the so-called recovery is “100 percent fake.”  Wiedemer explains, “If you look at the amount our economy has grown last year, our GDP grew 2% or $350 billion, but we borrowed over $700 billion.  That tells you right there that we are borrowing more than we are even growing.  Our entire growth is due to government borrowing . . . it’s a fake recovery.”  (more…)
