My Dear Extended Family,
Never before in the entire period of 1968 to 1980, or 2001 to present, have I received so many copies of classical deflationist scenarios in one day. It would seem as if the God of Deflation overflew the gold guys and dropped their leaflets.
Classical deflation does not have a snowball's chance in hell of occurring now for any length of time. To assume that you have to hold the belief that Bernanke is a mole in the present administration, placed their covertly to bury the present administration so deep that there will never be a democrat in office after 2013 anywhere.
If you believe there is a political appetite for the collapse of the Western financial system, they had a perfect chance in 2008 and did not accept that great opportunity to purge the system of Banksters for political reasons.
The problems of 2008 are here now and greater. Derivatives still challenge the entire system at a greater level. A major under the covers audit is being done right now of some major banks for serious OTC derivative problems. Market miscreant activity allowed the break to near nothing for many financial institutions. The activity specifically is the absence of the uptick rule, which is still missing. The regulators are controlled by Washington which in turn is owned by the hedge fund and bankster's lobby.
Nothing whatsoever has changed except the degree of difficulty which has risen to a level never existing in market history.
The rescue will come in the form of QE to infinity for the entire western world's financial system.
The market historians making fun of the gold community may not like the fact that it was the huge communication to his prison authorities and the system that actually got him the opportunity for freedom. Whatever the mental level reason for his hate of "Gold Bugs," he is wrong.
