Artificial & Fragile Market Very Dangerous – Michael Pento

By Greg Hunter’s

Money manager Michael Pento says don’t confuse a near record high stock market with strength and resiliency. What we have is just the opposite, as Pento explains, “There are some people who will listen to this and say, ‘Hey Mr. Pento, why are you such a Cassandra? Why are you so down? Don’t you know that the stock market is doing great? Don’t you know that I have a job?’ But here’s the thing, the entire edifice, the entire construct is artificial. It is controlled by governments and central banks. Hence, it is much more fragile, infinitely more fragile than if it was dictated by the free market. . . . This has to end badly because the distortions have to be reconciled. It was once okay to have recessions and corrections in the stock market when the stock market was not the economy, but asset prices have become the economy. Therefore, they lead the economy and they don’t follow the economy. Yes, this is going to end badly I am sorry to say.”

What will knock this market back to reality? Pento says, “You will eventually get a recession or eventually you will get inflation. You might just get both. You might just get a huge case of stagflation to hit this country and around the world. That’s what I am most afraid of.”

In closing, Pento warns, “Japan has no growth. There is no growth in Germany. There is no growth in Italy. We have an earnings recession here in the United States. So, what you have engendered here is most likely a protracted period of stagflation, which is going to lead to an epic and massive crash in asset prices. That’s what you have at your feet, so be careful.”

    Basically my angle on precious metals is SILVER SILVER SILVER,,,,,Its price is stuck b/w $14-$16 ounce….I bought $300 in older pre 1964 coins 3 months ago and bought nothing since then…..and a few coins every other month…..I stopped drinking coffee out and so why not do this. Not even going to try for gold.
    Understand the spot price for silver is constantly below its mining costs….??? How is that possible…..SUPPRESSION!! Its not hard to see and its sooooo cheap.
    If its really going to explode, and I think it has to…I just do a few pieces every other few months ( maybe 3x a year) in fact I only bought once earlier this year in January. My retirement is nearly 100% in dividend paying blue chip stocks. Que sera,sera-what ever will be will be….And whatever may happen, will happen.

    I have a couple of guns with a few hundred bullets……I can only do my best and rely on God’s guidance and protection.
    Being a person that fairly understands math,finance, basic accounting and financial health I get that its not possible to keep printing money and being debt ridden….Its just not possible and I don’t have to be a statistician to know this….. But I am hopeful and have faith in TRUE CAPITALISM. And my silver will help in any way it can.

      The whole world is being sucked into a debt trap by the banking cartel such as Tim Geithner and Hank Paulson who oversaw the last debt laden crisis in the USA. These two criminals now sit on the “working group” coercing China into debt expansion:

      While American’s are cheering for patsys such as the Clinton’s soon indictments the true criminals are quietly organizing a global currency collapse so they can put us under an electronic currency that will force Christians to make a choice whether to trust our Father out in the wilderness or stay in the cabal’s corrupt money system:

      2 Corinthians 6:16-18 And what agreement hath a temple of God with idols? for we are a temple of the living God; even as God said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. (17) Wherefore Come ye out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, And touch no unclean thing; And I will receive you, (18) And will be to you a Father, And ye shall be to me sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

      Father led His church out of Egypt(type of the world) into the wilderness through Moses but it didn’t take long for His people to raise up other gods to worship:

      Acts 7:37-40 This is that Moses, who said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall God raise up unto you from among your brethren, like unto me. (38) This is he that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel that spake to him in the Mount Sinai, and with our fathers: who received living oracles to give unto us: (39) to whom our fathers would not be obedient, but thrust him from them, and turned back in their hearts unto Egypt, (40) saying unto Aaron, Make us gods that shall go before us: for as for this Moses, who led us forth out of the land of Egypt, we know not what is become of him.

      Father then sent His Son and led Him out into the wilderness to be tempted to prove His power to overcome the world and it’s sin of self preservation:

      Matthew 4:1 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.

      So He is going to do the same thing to the body of Christ who is the church very soon:

    • uncommon sense

      The silver price is constantly below its mining costs when you consider primary silver miners. however, 2/3 silver is produced as a by-product of mining other metals such as base metals. As a result, large amounts of silver will be dumped on the market regardless of price. However, your original point is still valid as the paper market determines the physical silver price.

      • WD

        Uncommon sense,
        I see silver and gold has the basis of our trade system….grant it we use paper money now. And that PM are “forgotten” but it really comes down to basis PM are it….the ultimate safety net

        Years ago an old school financial planner told my grand father that the rule of thumb was that 10% of your portfolio should be in precious metals. That is a considerable amount if you had a 750k portfolio.

        They dont say that anymore but I even remember someone telling me this in the mid 90s. I have a mid size box of silver, plan to double that and then stop. I do like some of the special coins…..

    To those who may say: “Hey Mr. Pento, why are you such a Cassandra? … Why are you so down? … Don’t you know that the stock market is doing great? … Why aren’t you thrilled that the stock market keeps making new highs?? …
    I say: Remember the Weimar Republic … their stock market also soared … as their currency fell in value toward zero as QE to infinity was implemented … on August 30, 1924 a monetary re-set had to be done … whereby a 1-trillion mark note … was exchanged for 1 new paper Reichsmark!!!

    • paul ...

      Why not “unchain the CPI” to help regular people … like the trillion dollar Military budget “is unchained” and the trillion dollar bankster bailouts are “unchained”? …

      • paul ...

        Remember all these tariff increases on Chinese goods … is going to have to be paid for by the American people (who ultimately buy these goods) … yet the American people have “chains on their income” at the same time prices will rise … can someone please explain to Trump how this is going to kill consumer spending … we can’t simply buy American to get out of this mess … as American products are not going to be made cheaper then what China is selling them for (as the corporate crooks running American companies would never give the American people a break like that) … so tariffs will create an inflation even worse then the 10% rate we currently have (according to John Williams) … soon gold and silver will have to reflect “the true inflation rate”!!

  5. William Stanley

    Mr. Hunter,
    Thanks; Mr. Pento is always a treat!

  6. JC

    Some good stuff here regarding China. Looks like trouble is coming.

    • paul ...

      Nostradamus saw “a great rumbling” … but is it the economic tariff warfare or military warfare going on with China, Venezuela, Iran, Cuba, Yemen, Russia, etc., etc. leading the great people of the US into division? … a foreign policy of bullying and browbeating nations into acquiescence (like Germany over the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline) is ripping the Western world apart … and a host of nations are now binding together “against the US” … a new, heavy round of tariffs on Chinese goods will take effect this Friday and China has responded by not buying any US Treasuries … I can’t but wonder if all of this conflict is simply part of some grand neocon strategy … to create the required number of US enemies in the world “to justify our Trillion dollar defense budget”??

    Thanks Greg,

    We are in election campaign overdrive here. I’m finally convinced society has lost the plot.

    Apologies in advance, having a bummer of a week.

    Will the world choose “free trade” … or “trade wars” under the threat of real war?? …

    Gold & Silver prices are swinging wildly like The Dow.

    The economic war is over. China won.

    While we’ve been busy printing money and manipulating markets China was busy building a replacement for the United States and buying gold. Trade talks? What trade talks? China just gave the United States the middle finger and didn’t even flinch. All this talk about raising tariffs on China is just talk, and China knows it. Half the manufacturing plants in this country are owned by China thanks to past administrations. Raising tariffs on Chinese goods is like shooting ourselves in the foot.

    The curtain is about to be pulled back, and guess what? It’s not the wizard of oz pulling the levers. It’s China. Please don’t misunderstand. I’m American through and through, but globalist inside this country have sold us out. That includes the communist in our government who are in bed with them. When President Trump pulls the FISA net up, you will be greatly surprised who’s in it. When the truth comes out, it’s going to get ugly. Really ugly, so don’t sell off your food supplies just yet.

    • Jerry

      No wonder China was pissed off with the trade talks. President Trump broke it off in their ass with this move.

      • Mike R

        a beautiful MOVE it was !

    • Anthony Australia

      Greg Mannarino thinks the deal was done ages ago, all the rest up to now is political theatre.

    • Mike R

      China has not won anything. Racking up $44 trillion in debt in less than 20 years is NOT winning. Their ‘belt and suspenders’ gig is nothing more than creating more debt. They have no currency. The have no deep or liquid capital markets. Nobody cares about their gold holdings. And until they starting importing and running deficits they simply can’t have their currency become a ‘reserve’ currency. Honestly, they are in deep deep trouble. Trump knows this better than anyone out there. Them ‘pulling’ out is nothing more than showmanship, as is their paper ‘renegging’ on words in an agreement that will never be anything they comply too. The tariffs though are having a major impact, not in current ‘costs’ on goods, but every company on the planet that uses their factories is already re-thinking big time, and searching out sources worldwide. This diversification is super healthy for the US. Jobs are not going to come back overnight, but the tariffs are forcing US companies to do business far differently than they were before Trump put them in place. Its really a good thing that someone had the cahones to do this, as our own government is what buried us in the first place, doing stupid agreements in the past, that allowed China to walk all over us. You got china pegged all wrong. They are in trouble, much more so than Mr. Pento hinted at. They have zilch backing up all that $44 trillion they printed out of thin air, and there will be massive economic volcanoes imploding in their faces, far sooner than anything occurring here. Stock markets and investors world wide, know that, and are continuing to invest here because of it. Thats why the dollar keeps remaining strong, especially against the Yuan. The Yuan has a very very false peg, and if they ever let it depeg, it would go to zero overnight. They have more than 600 million people living in deep poverty. Thats double the US population. They ain’t conquering ANYONE with that level of poverty and so many people in desperate living conditions. Their military is needed more to prevent a huge uprising than it is to become a pretend ‘superpower’. Its too bad that they keep such a lid on tons of info leaking out of that country, bc if the American public knew the truth, they would be supporting Trump big time, as China is simply looking to rape and pillage from our wealth. Period.

    • Greg Hunter

      Not sure you are correct here.

  13. H. Craig Bradley


    Pension funds are the largest traders or investors in stocks. For the last ten years, they have been net sellers of stock. Every time we have another stock market panic (Dec), pensions sell stocks. What do they buy? Dodgy debt instruments attempting to reach of yield, as they MUST get a 7.5% total return every year for it to pencil out. It never quite does, so tax payers must raise their ante.

    Public Pension funds (CALPERS) often buy structured financial products and junky debt, such as the new offering coming from Tesla, who reportedly burnt through 40% of their cash in just the last 3 months! We this company fails, and it will, pension funds won’t get any more interest payments from Tesla and the paper will be worthless, as well. Back to the perennial well, the effervescent taxpayers.

    Big future problem here is what happens when you run out of other people’s money? Economist Martin A. Armstrong calls this an extension of the global sovereign debt crisis. He also refers to the public pension funding problem and coming crisis as what will end Socialism; sooner the better.

  14. George Eddleston

    Mr. Pento, At what point does a dirigisme cease to be government directed credit for development and become a socialist or communist system? The American System of Political Economy was successful and created the greatest nation on earth, state directed credit for development (dirigisme); so if The United States used state directed credit was the United States a socialist country or are the history books wrong and it was Adam Smith’s invisible hand of graft and corruption that made America great? The point I wish to make is that it was The American System of Political Economy which had state directed low interest long term credit for industry, agriculture and infrastructure NOT some hair brained radical free market capitalism with it’s magic of the markets invisible hand nonsense that wall st. practitioners push on the uninformed public.

    • William Stanley

      IMO, rent seeking (getting government to rig things in your favor and against your potential competitors) was in some ways less destructive when there was a frontier with plentiful natural resources to exploit (in addition to labor and small business). Now, the rent seeking is more destructive to both labor and domestic entrepreneurs.
      IMO, the Globalist agenda was always in play (especially at the hands of the “elites”), but it’s become more destructive in recent decades than it has been for awhile. Moreover, governmental industrial policy is always susceptible to corruption and rent seeking. That is one reason why separation of powers is needed, why anti-trust laws must be enforced, and why a free and vigorous press is essential.
      However, IMO, we have gone too far in the socialist direction, especially in social policy (i.e., tyranny). Again, IMO, some respect for the “invisible hand” of markets (when allowed/forced to operate within a functioning legal system) is not so hare-brained as is the assumption that government is inherently benign.

    • TD

      George, you know not what you are talking about. Most major inventions came about by private citizens on their own time, and private funding. The cotton gin, the steam locomotive, the telephone, radio, the airplane, and personal computer are some major examples.

    Economic wars leading to shooting wars.

    FYI one of my sources has told me that military units are preparing for deployment. I can only imagine, what the response would be should Iranian proxy armies attack U.S. troops in Iraq. It seems like we’ve been to this tipping point before, but nothing happened. Maybe this time, when the deep state feels the heat of military tribunals things will be different ?

        • Donald

          “Israel passed information on an alleged Iranian plot to attack U.S. interests in the Gulf to the U.S. before national security adviser John Bolton threatened Iran with “unrelenting force” last night, senior Israeli officials told me.”

          Listen, whenever you hear of some “TOP SECRET” news like this being reported on in the news, ITS FAKE!!!!!!!!! Likely, this is a lie in order to get the US to bring in more military assets into the region. Why? This too easy…. consider the source of the “TOP SECRET” info….

        • paul ...

          Let’s put the pop corn in the microwave … turn on CNN … and watch the games begin … in the gladiatorial ring we have in the left corner Country A (who builds factories and plants, employees millions of people who manufacture things, actually launches massive infrastructure programs like a high-speed rail networks and pumps profits back into productive operations that turbo-charge its economy …
          In the right corner is Country B (who has the finest military in the world, more than 800 bases scattered across the planet, spends more on weapons systems and war-making than all other nations combined but has stupidly gutted its industrial core, hollowed out its factory base, allowed its vital infrastructure to crumble, outsourced millions of jobs, off-shored thousands of businesses, plunged the center of the country into permanent recession, delivered control of its money and economy to its Fed Central Bank, and recycles 96 percent of its corporate and financial profits into stock buyback scams that sucks critical capital out of the economy and puts it into the pockets of corrupt Wall Street plutocrats and neocons whose voracious appetite for lust and greed is pushing the world towards both an economic meltdown and Armageddon … the stakes are high … as the gladiator that wins this battle will rule the world!!

    Greg: A excellent interview, thank you! Your guest, Michael Pento explained the USA/China trade deficit and the China Belt and Road Initiative that I keep hearing about. He revealed that the “printing press party”, as I call it, cannot stop; therefore R.I.P. free markets. Thank you Michael Pento for telling the truth, precisely and succinctly. I will continue to return to USAWatchdog.

    PS: And then China in order to “negotiate from strength” … sends a couple of it’s Aircraft carriers to sail through Long Island Sound … now do you think such a “show of force” is going to bring Trump to the negotiating table and force Trump to make a better trade deal for China???

    • paul ...

      PSS: So what does China do to force Trump into making a better trade deal with them? … China announces that a new, heavy round of tariffs on many of Trumps industrial goods sold to China will take effect this Friday!! …

      It is a split between the old clan (Clintons Obama bush…) and the new clans (Trump, and whoever behind him in the military).
      I have seen this split before, and from my observation in the M.E. it is the faction that is supported by Russia usually wins at the end, and here it seems that Trump has the Russians backing him up, we know already that the meddling in 2016 election was to get him in power, that is a fact, now did he collude or not, it is trivial, the bottom line that the Russians wants him in, and that what happened. so if it comes god forbid to a clash between the two factions it will be Trump the winning one but at the ruins of the country.
      That is why people here should wise up to the game played by the Russians. They want to break down USA and this hard knuckled politics played in D.C.will play in the hands of the Russians.
      Both sides has to think about the country, and they have to wise up to the enemy.
      I am afraid they will not.

    Hello Greg,
    I have no financial expertise, but it seems to me that the example of Japan’s economy indicates not an imminent stock crash (whatever percent that might be), but rather a slow burn scenario more controlled than anyone thought possible.
    Mr. Pento seems very committed to remaining in the rigged game, applying his economic models that should not apply to a commletly fraudulent and manipulated system, or am I missing something?
    Thanks Greg!

  21. Sue Robinson

    Thanks again for another wonderful interview. Mr. Pento is right: you are a treasure.
    Seriously. So is Mr. Pento. FYI, I did sign up for your private emails. Got two and then they stopped….Gremlins, I guess.
    Meanwhile, USA Watchdog readers and supporters may want to take a look at the Grand Solar Minimum matter – which suggests that sun activity rules the climate, not CO2. If scientists on the cooling side of this issue are correct, we are really in for it. Just noting. Look up the name Valentina Zharkova, who teaches in the UK. Then look at Ice Age Farmer.,

    I always enjoy the financial reports. It is how I keep my finger on the economic pulse. Trying to gauge where we are at. But I have no portfolio. I went a different route. My garage is a well equipped shop for auto repair and light fabrication. I bought 25 tons of Planters Mix (dirt) and had an end dump deliver the whole load to the house. I moved the entire 25 tons by myself, with a wheel barrow and a shovel. Now we have a fine raised bed garden. We have an unknown number of tons of wood chips that we have covered our entire property with. Deep. And add to them year after year. As in “Back to Eden Gardening.” If we survive whatever is coming our way, we will be sort of like a Mom and Pop hardware store, auto repair shop, fix it shop, and tiny produce market, and a source of free range chicken eggs. And a wealth of practical experience, that includes herbal medicine. That is my wife’s specialty. Plus she is a master gardener. I’m learning, but she is the one that does all the pruning. All thinking people have their own strategies. This is ours.
    As always, my thanks go out to Greg and Michael.

    God is waiting for His TRUE church/congregation to arise. Will you step out in faith? Will you fight when things seem impossible? Do you REALLY believe that “with God all things are possible?” You move and God moves?

    Do You Believe In Miracles?
    Dave Daubenmire May 8, 2019
    Whatever happened to the Supernatural? Why is it that in the day in which we live we see so little of the miraculous? Is it because there is no God or is it because there is so little faith?
    MyUSAWatchdogger comment,
    I see the miraculous out there today. Some may not see it because they aren’t looking at the big picture. The big picture is? Were at the end of the age. God’s Kingdome with Jesus Christ as KING of KINGS, will replace all governments in the war of Armageddon! Daniel 2:44] If you want to go down with this sorry lot, have at it. When asked, what this world is coming to. I answer happily, an end I hope! Yes an end! I’m not getting any younger and I’m not looking forward to paying for my sins in death. Jesus Christ did that for me and you. You just have to accept it and his Kingdome is more than just in hearts, but real and ready for warfare! The loser’s of this world will not accept that fact and will pay with lose of the real life, in paradise on earth! Christ will rule with an iron rod with peace and security, not the false cry you will be hearing soon from fake news, as a sign the King of King’s is ready to strike! So hold onto your hats, batten down the hatches! Man rule is over, divine intervention is here! Trump was just the big inning! Soon this old world game will be called out on account of darkness and soon the light of Jehovah God almighty will illuminate the land through out the earth! Enjoy! McGillacutty

    • iwitness02

      Thaddeus J. McGillacutty,
      I also believe we are at the end of the age. The Gospel Age. I hope to witness the complete fall, and overthrow of Satan’s worldwide empire. And witness the inauguration of the Millennial Age, where our Fathers will shall be done on earth as it is in heaven. This hope, more than anything else, is what keeps me going, without being filled with despair over the present grim state of affairs. I think most Christians only see heaven or hell in their future. A lot of them do not see the third option. Christs’ 1000 year reign over all of earths affairs. Satan has muddied the waters of truth to the point where many do not see that there is an earthly part of the Kingdom, as well as a heavenly part to the Kingdom. Two salvation’s, one for believers, and one for non believers. All the non believers will get a second chance at attaining eternal life during the Millennial Age. I hope to be part of our Lords’ ground crew that will get to help with the teaching. From Adam and Eve until today, there are billions of living, and dead, who have not learned the truth about Christ. That will be fixed during the Millennial Age.
      I don’t know Thaddeus, if you see it the same way. This is what I believe to be the truth.

    Michael Pento is one of my favourite commentators. Always interesting when he is on your show. I just don’t get though how China is a world threat when they build an aircraft carrier. How many does the US have? How many military bases does the US have? Just hope the US war machine doesn’t decide we need another major conflict to generate a bit more revenue . Our politicians down here in Aus will just follow, as any good lap dog would do.


  33. paul ...

    Poor Europe … as Trump announces “new sanctions” on Iran’s iron, steel, aluminum, and copper industries to create conditions for regime change … Iran issues it’s own ultimatums to Europe … saying they have a 60 day notice … they either continue to buy Iranian crude oil and metals … or else … Iran “will sanction Europe” … by breaking from their nuclear deal “with them” … and begin building as many nuclear weapons as Israel has (along with the rockets to carry them a thousand miles) … what is poor Europe to do??? … the neocons are just loving it … as it gives Europe “a reason to need protection from the US” … and creating enemies in the world is the exact prescription for asking for even higher military expenditures (like squeezing a Trillion dollars of protection money per year out of the American people is not enough for these greedy mafia bastards)!! …

    • paul ...

      Well it looks like happy days are here again for the Washington neocons (but not the American people who will have to pay the bill to supply Europe with protection) … as all the “additional protection money to protect Europe from a “Nuclear Iran” is going to have come out of Americans social programs … like Social Security that will continue to be bound with a “chained” CPI … eventually forcing Americans “to eat insects” rather then meat for our protein!! …

    Greg, So it appears maybe Trump Jr. needs a heads up about being a target name in those redacted in the Mueller report? That he might have had a contact with Butina at some earlier date…and that she is now being = threatened and in solitary confinement = to get her to ‘compose’ a story of their meeting as more ? That the Trump family might have been targeted to get dirty/ pictures etc meeting with people much earlier that the given time like….maybe as early as 2013 ? when discussion of a ‘potential’ run was first discussed…
    That and his dealing with Kimberly Guilfoyle, X of Gavin Newsome= Nancy Pelosi’s nephew, and now her being on Trump’s re-campaign crew as an ‘advisor’?
    One needs to remember who owns Fox News, who is on their board now = x- SoH Paul Ryan, the amount of never Trumpers/Rinos/Bushies that helped pre-sell the election results last election etc…
    Hope Dr. Jaffe and other’s get POTUS and Trump Jr. to just admit now if he did meet with Butina earlier, so as not to look like he (Jr.) is covering something up? cuz – there is nothing TO HIDE , now that we all know there WAS a compromise operation going on, has been for years and against more than just them…but all of Congress for that matter.

        One can not understand the POTUS coup attempt if you do not know what and who the swamp is…what they have been doing, for how long, and what and why they are hiding and in fear of the people figuring it out !

        * and POTUS Trump….Don’t look like Nixon…keep uncovering info…do not bunker up ! Redact more of the Mueller report so they can not make you ‘look’ guilty = IF there is stuff that embarrasses Trump Jr. and his meeting two Butinas for a romp – so what… it was not collusion…it was just a young guy partying to hard. Do what ya promised = declassify… he might have just been a weak spot on their way to compromise and commit treason…which will only in the end give Butina a longer prison sentence or a walk to the gallows with the rest of them!

    Yeah … things are different now … the stock market has reached a permanent plateau and can’t ever be allowed to go down … the last time things were “this different” was during the days of the Weimar Republic … when their stock market also never went down “only up” … but their currency became more and more worthless … it’s happening today folks … soon meat prices will go sky high in price as “our wages are chained” … getting anything to eat will be considered a blessing … if Americans don’t complain now about breaking the “chains” on the CPI … they better just get used to the fact that they will be eating maggot sausages!! …

    Where is the Plunge Protection Team when you need them?? … … likely “holding back and conserving ammo” until the Dow drops back below the green and blue lines on this chart …

    What is really breaking up Facebook is the American people finally demanding their privacy rights as provided for under the US Constitution … just breaking Facebook into smaller pieces (to do exactly the same thing) is not going to solve the problem … Facebook has to be put out of the “spy business” … American have had enough with all the spying the CIA and NSA are already doing (putting microphones in our TV’s and dishwashers to hear every word we are saying)!! …

  38. paul ...

    Now with swine flu spreading … and less piggies going to market … even the price for maggot sausages will likely rise above what people on Social Security can afford with a “chained CPI” …

    1 Thessalonians 5:1-5:
    1) But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
    2) For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
    3) For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
    4) But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
    5) Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
