Your Holiday Weekend Jackass

Jim Willie gets us ready for year end and 2019.

40

We'll speak with Jim again in a few weeks for our annual year-in-review and look ahead. For today, however, I thought we should mainly focus upon the three main subjects that have Jim's attention into the end of 2018.

And those three, primary topics are:

  • The ongoing issues at DeutscheBank and the impact on the EU Banks
  • Surging US borrowing amounts and borrowing costs
  • The latest 30% drop in crude oil and what it might be telling us

And as you might imagine, there's quite a bit in between, too. So, settle in and give this podcast a thorough listen. I'm sure you'll find it time well spent.

TF

p.s. Not only can Jim's work still be found at www.goldenjackass.com, he's alost transitioning to a new, mobile-friendly site at www.golden-jackass.com. Additionally, he has a new podcast venture that you should check out at www.thegadfly.vhx.tv

Morning Folks,

Morning Folks,

Very much hope our American readers here are enjoying Thanksgiving. In the mean time, to my uneducated eye, looks like the Banksters remain firmly in control. Flicking through the Bullionvault charts it appears all us silver stackers got kicked this week. Sounds daft but really hoping for a capitulation 'failure to deliver moment' in the metals sometime soon.

On a Separate note to Turd, keep up the great work and any chance you can get David Brady back on for another conversation soon. Following you both on Twitter, whilst David and your articles at Sprott Money greatly compliment all your efforts here at TFMetals.

Ours is a society ruled by

Ours is a society ruled by money junkies (acquisators). Not all societies have been ruled the same. Others were ruled by warriors or intellectuals. (These ideas on the nature and evolution of societies was formulated by the Indian philosopher Sarkar.)

In money junkie societies eventually all is taken over and corrupted using money. Is this not true of all aspects of this society ? - Politics, education, religion, media, art, etc. Those inside such an acquisator ruled society think ‘that’s the way it is’ and cannot imagine there being any other way.

But consider a couple of warrior ruled societies- the ancient Spartans and the Japanese samurai of medieval Japan. Would they have allowed a bunch of fat balding soft banksters and their slick talking hired lawyers to rule over them ?

Not likely.

Why does no one talk (or at

Why does no one talk (or at least think about) nationalizing the banks? It's the only solution with any justice. No future generation owes a penny to those who tried to enslave them in the previous generations. It's the banksters' fault for going along with such a ridiculous deal in the first place. Same with corporations.

Raise your glass and toast to our host and leader, TF, to whom I am thankful for his willingness to share his resources with us.

And to all of Turdville, a wonderous thanksgiving celebration!

On the other hand we could go

On the other hand we could go the usual route and reset the table through a world war that could kill millions, - and potentially billions given current weapons technology.

Just how stupid are human beings ? They can choose between forever debt serfdom or massive death.

Or just maybe they can think for themselves and outside of all the boxes of the past. Maybe.

Of course the banks won’t ‘allow’ it. That is the view within a box that was constructed for the population long ago.

As Rickards has said, It's

As Rickards has said, It's not how much gold is available, it's what that gold "exchanges for " when moving into or out of it. Revaluing the gold in terms of fiat is not hard. The guberment did it (TWICE) already.

usdebtclock.org puts the dollar to gold ratio at $4563ish now, but why couldn't gold go higher per oz as things get worse in the economy?

Just saying...

Joseph Warren   The Hudson

Joseph Warren The Hudson book recap was telling. Debt jubilee is unlikely because it would completely gut every bank, medium and large in the world. Steve St Angelo of SRS Rocco posted his article from yesterday noting that the global debt increased $8 trillion in the first 6 months of 2018. It now sits are $247 trillion. It's likely though that the global debt will increase by $30 trillion this year, well ahead of the $22 trillion increase in 2017 according to Steve and my minor extrapolation for the full year. We could easily see $260 trillion by end of 2018. The debt jubilee is unlikely for that reason. The debt serfs many no realize or care they are far beyond their capacity to liquidate debt an din most cases barely able to pay the interest in the debt, something on the order of $12 trillion a year, 15% of the entire world GDP.

The notion of a jubilee has been perverted for centuries. The offices of bankruptcy allow formal debt repudiation but that satisfies only a tiny bit of total global debt, held largely major corporations, banks and sovereignties. Debt jubilee would imply removal of debt largely of those who created the debt in the first place. Those are local, state and national governments as well as central banks and TBTF banks plus major corporations. I cannot figure out how this would come to pass. However it might happen, the road is bumpy

The world supply of above ground gold is worth around $3 trillion, just a tad over 1% of the world debt load. I wonder how a jubilee would affect the price of the yellow shiny?
