The Most Amazing Coin Treasures Uncovered in 2021

Saving for a rainy day is not a new idea. In 2021, archaeologists turned up a whole horde of hoards: stashes of coins and other valuables left behind for whatever reason and never used again. These treasures turned up in a Polish cornfield, in a meadow in New England, in a town in Denmark. They were left by royals, pirates, chieftains and people who will forever remain anonymous. Many of these hoards were discovered by lucky amateurs with metal detectors or sharp eyes. Some date back as far as 1,500 years. From good luck pennies to the biggest Anglo Saxon hoard…

Recent Buried and Sunken Treasure and What Happens to It

“That belongs in a museum!” Harrison Ford’s Indiana Jones famously said. If you found buried treasure, what would you do with it? Keep it? Sell it? Turn it over to a museum? While finding a fabled hoard can be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for fame and fortune, treasure does not come without drawbacks. Here are some incredible recent treasure discoveries, as well as the controversies that followed. Fenn’s treasure Vietnam veteran and rare art collector Forrest Fenn had an epiphany during his recovery from illness. He had a sudden drive to inspire people to find adventure in the great outdoors. So…

What Drives the Price of Gold? Part 2: Jan Nieuwenhuijs

A detailed analysis of the current gold pricing framework and why this framework is unsustainable.  a.image2.image-link.image2-733-728 { display: inline; padding-bottom: 100.68681318681318%; padding-bottom: min(100.68681318681318%, 733px); width: 100%; height: 0; } a.image2.image-link.image2-733-728 img { max-width: 728px; max-height: 733px; } In the current framework gold is priced based on the 10-year TIPS yield. In my view, the current framework becomes more nonsensical the longer the TIPS yield stays below zero. At the time of writing the TIPS yield is –0.74%.IntroductionPart one was an introduction to the current gold pricing framework. We discussed that the gold price in U.S. dollar was inversely correlated to…

Gold Lagging Inflation

Gold is lagging the raging inflation unleashed by the Fed’s epic money printing.  Despite leading inflation benchmarks skyrocketing to multi-decade highs, gold prices have barely budged.  Serious inflation initially fuels record-high stock markets, which stunt gold investment demand.  But festering inflation increasingly erodes corporate earnings, hitting stock prices.  As stock markets roll over, gold will start reflecting this inflation. Runaway inflation is increasingly plaguing the United States, as evident in this week’s major economic releases.  The December Consumer Price Index headline number came in up 7.0% year-over-year, its hottest print since June 1982!  That’s a 39.5-year high, despite the CPI being…

Should You Move While You Can, Or When You Must?

January 14, 2022 This gives an extreme advantage to those few who move first, long before they must. The financial advantage for first movers is equally extreme. Moving is a difficult decision, so we hesitate. But when the window to do so closes, it's too late. We always think we have all the time in the world to ponder, calculate and explore, and then things change and the options we once had are gone for good. Moving to a new locale is difficult for those of us who are well-established in the place we call home. Add in a house…

One Bank Predicts $3 Trillion In Quantitative Tightening Coming

Wall Street has officially jumped the shark: with the economy set to slow this year - even as supply-driven inflation refuses to relent - consensus now expects 3-4 rate hikes this year (with Jamie Dimon predicting as many as "6 or 7") - some are going so far as to predict how much shrinkage the Fed's balance sheet will see in the coming years once it begins any time between March and June.Enter Deutsche Bank, which forecasts that once QT begins, the Fed's balance sheet will shrink from $9 trillion currently to $6 trillion. As DB's Jim Reid notes overnight,…

Which States Are the Freest?

Our liberties have taken a beating in recent years, accelerated by governments' enthusiasm for leveraging COVID-19 as an excuse for further tightening control over society. We long ago arrived at the point where newly published assessments of the health of personal and economic freedom elicit winces before we even read the gloomy summaries. So the arrival of the latest edition of the Cato Institute's Freedom in the 50 States is welcome both for its somewhat optimistic take on the future of pandemic-fueled restrictions as well as for the handy guide it offers for people looking to relocate within the United…

There's Still Time To Stop Biden's Global Minimum Tax Grab

Here at home, the Joe Biden White House has been lobbying federal lawmakers to impose trillions of dollars in higher taxes and wasteful, “woke” spending that will make the growing inflation problem even worse.At the international level, the Biden agenda also calls for higher taxes on Americans. The Biden administration has been working with foreign governments to set a global minimum tax rate on American businesses.  Why collude with our competitors to keep taxes on American businesses high? It does nothing to help American taxpayers, workers or, small businesses. This huge concession sets the stage for a global tax regime that rigs the…
