Ron Paul: Beware and Prepare, the American Empire is Collapsing

When empires fall, they do not go down gracefully. The collapse is sudden and the consequences are permanent. 

Like the schoolyard bully who is finally defeated, his former victims and enemies revel in his fall. 

The US empire is now teetering on such a collapse. The signs are all around us. 

Aggressive US foreign policy, a self-destructive monetary policy that debases the currency and hides inflation, a monstrous national and individual debt load. 

The writing is on the wall and the wise are preparing. What can we do?

Reinhart Says Full Argentine Default Is Just a Matter of Time

To Carmen Reinhart, an Argentine default is all but inevitable -- and will likely come sooner rather than later.

The Harvard University economist says the government’s re-profiling plan is already a default on domestic debt, which rating companies will likely promptly respond to. While asking bondholders for more time doesn’t configure a default on its foreign obligations, it would be “a miracle if they get to six months.”

“You have the combination of political turmoil, a contracting economy, no access to private capital markets, the serious onset of domestic capital flight and extreme reliance on the IMF, which may not be sufficient to cover their debts coming due,” she said in an interview. “That’s pretty grim.”

Back in November, the Cuba-born economist -- who was also deputy director of the IMF’s research department during Argentina’s 2001 crisis -- warned that rising U.S. interest rates, slower Chinese growth and potential defaults put more stress on the developing world. At the time, she called Argentina “the weakest of the set,” saying the South American country had little margin “for any kind of error or negative surprises.”

By Reinhart’s count, Argentina has defaulted on its foreign debt eight times since 1800.

Financial Expert: How High Can Gold and Silver Really Go?

Gold is going a lot higher from current levels, and the momentum in gold-backed ETF inflows offers support, this according to George Milling-Stanley, Chief Gold Strategist at State Street Global Advisors. 

“If you remember the last time we had significant speculative money coming into the market was as long ago as 2011, and speculative money flows drove the price up $500 in just 9 months. I could easily see something like that happening again,” Milling-Stanley told Kitco News.

Daniel Ameduri: I Personally Think Gold Will go to $2000 this Year

Daniel feels that we are looking at another move higher in gold, but general investors haven't started buying. A brief pullback into the fourteen hundreds is possible, but we could easily be looking at $2000 gold by the end of the year. We should be in for a good bull market run as it appears that the smart money and institutions are getting involved.

Gary Shilling: Why We are Already in a Recession

Even though this quote is attributed to John Maynard Keynes, it was actually Gary Shilling who was the first known user of it in print. The president of A. Gary Shilling & Co has enjoyed a long and storied career in finance. 

And in this interview with Real Vision’s Ed Harrison, he takes us back to the days of fixed commissions on Wall Street as stagflation became entrenched. Shilling also talks at length about why he thinks a recession has just started, making Treasuries still the asset class to own. 

But as he looks forward, Shilling also sees a bright future of technological advancement, productivity growth and above-trend economic growth.
