Gold & Silver News: ZeroHedge Feed

This is a feed of recent posts and news articles from ZeroHedge. ZeroHedge is “Anti-Keynesian” in scope, With an often hilarious snarkiness, ZeroHedge provides a not-so mainstream perspective on Wall Street, finance and the global economic condition through a prolific output of detailed, thoughtful and timely commentary. Articles are posted by the pseudonym Tyler Durden, from the movie “Fight Club.” Discussion is robust and not for the faint of heart.

Interestingly, and this observation isn’t supported by any analysis, just cursory glance type observation, the number of gold and silver articles seem to have declined in late-2014 / early 2015. When they do appear, there are more hostile responses in the comments section, rather than the endless littany of purely positive comments. Given that bullish gold / silver news seemed to dominate ZH a few years back, perhaps the current state can serve as a contrarian indicator that metals will continue to scream higher in 2015. Hit us up through the Contact Link in the footer if you think this observation is off-base.

  • The Global Debt Problem - Apr 11, 2021
    The Global Debt Problem Authored by Alasdair Macloed via, It has been recently estimated that global debts stand at $284 trillion equivalent, representing 355% of global GDP. Estimates such as these must be treated with caution, and they probably underestimate financial sector debt. Furthermore, no allowance in these figures is made for OTC derivatives, which according to the Bank for International Settlements have a gross value of $15.48 quadrillion(!), netting out at $609 trillion. This article comments on the different debt sectors: government, finance, non-financial corporate [...]

  • Ukraine, Taiwan... Two-Pronged US Aggression Toward Russia, China Escalates - Apr 11, 2021
    Ukraine, Taiwan... Two-Pronged US Aggression Toward Russia, China Escalates Via The Strategic Culture Foundation, All people of the world should hope that a multipolar world vision prevails and the destructive American ideology fails – definitively. There is a close parallel in the way the Biden administration is riling up dangerous tensions with Russia and China. The proxy in both cases are the Ukraine and Taiwan, respectively. Washington is citing claims that Russia and China are threatening its allies which, in turn, provides a pretext for the United States to step up its own provocative [...]
  • A Self-Loathing Ruling Class Cannot Endure - Apr 11, 2021
    A Self-Loathing Ruling Class Cannot Endure Authored by Conrad Black via, The U.S. now has an official regime of lies, supported by an almost worthlessly dishonest media, and scores of millions of Americans brainwashed into the false view that they live in an evil country... Not every aspect of the onslaught of self-hate that has broken over America, warped its media, and turned most of the academy - and even apparently, most of its elementary and secondary schools - into centers of reorientation designed to convince Americans their national past is loathsome hypocrisy, is bad. [...]
  • Visualizing The Plunging Purchasing Power Of The US Dollar - Apr 11, 2021
    Visualizing The Plunging Purchasing Power Of The US Dollar The purchasing power of a currency is the amount of goods and services that can be bought with one unit of the currency. For example, one U.S. dollar could buy 10 bottles of beer in 1933. Today, as Visual Capitalist's Govind Bhutanda notes, it’s the cost of a small McDonald’s coffee. In other words, the purchasing power of the dollar - its value in terms of what it can buy - has decreased over time as price levels have risen. Tracking the Purchasing Power of the Dollar In 1913, the Federal Reserve Act granted Federal Reserve b [...]
