    I can get silver at 24.54 euro a ounce (bar) from a prominent swiss dealer which sells its own generic 1 ounce bars and coins at 24.54 and 24.99- theres no shortage of silver at that price I guess if the market is working.
    Although maple leafs are selling at 27.27 euro and a tube at 642.20 euro.
    Buying PMs on E bay is retarded.

    I venture a reason for the difference in reaction to the banker occupation between the Irish and the Greeks is that of immigration. The people who are Irish and are concerned about the events going on in Ireland, look at the mess there and instead of rioting and protesting are making an economic decision and are leaving. To them it is a higher probability that their personal financial (physical) survival will be realized by leaving and starting again else where. Besides, they also want to get away from the rain!

    So though you may criticize the Irish for not “rising up”, they have been putting up with this kind of “shit” for hundreds of years and numerous rebellions and civil wars; so leaving seems to them the historically the better option. So cut them some slack for cutting out; because you cut out on America, and I think that for you that was just the right thing to do.

    Me, I’m staying in America, living out in the wilderness, but able to do the “self defense” thing. I am “banking” on the collapse of the governmental system prior to the effective organization of the “police state”; failing this development, I do have plan B in motion to relocate to a foreign wilderness just “down the road”. Why don’t I “stay and fight”? Great question. Why didn’t you “stay and fight”? Perhaps, like me, you know enough of history to realize that “America” was never what it has always been presented as; so fighting for a “myth” is not really an intelligent activity to participate in.

    So the road you choose, comes with consequences; when this is over we can compare notes as to those who chose wisely and those who were fools. Good luck to you. As the old Irish saying goes, “May the road home be down hill and the wind to your back.”

    I’ve made the decision to survival at home – or more preciously, the decision has been made for me. Many times I’ve had some regret and I’m still dancing on the blade of the knife, but sometimes the path that you don’t choose is the best destination.
    In that vein, I’ve noticed a great change of attitude in this country lately. Thanks to the “Truth Movement” for that, I think. Maybe we haven’t all been right all the time, but the great discussion has been wonderful and has kept me alive.
    As you say Mark, some will be proven to be fools.
    For the people who are occupying Wall Street – if we have a vote for the “One Demand” – my choice is “intelligent, swift, compassionate justice, top to the bottom”. Of course you aren’t my genie in a bottle, but there is no harm in wishing? I’m thinking of you and I do appreciate your great efforts. (Please don’t listen to celebrities, follow your hearts to the end). God willin’ and crik don’t rise, I won’t be out breaking windows.

    @ Max

    Max, how comes France24 does not invite you anymore to be interviewed/comment on world financial matters like a couple of years ago? It’s a pitty! I remember seeing you there several times on their TV shows then.

    France24 decided that you’re too controversial/conspiracy theorist like?

    France24 is part of the Vivendi group if I am not mistaken?
    I don’t think they like what you say. Am I wrong?

    Jim Willie

    “Wow!! The billboard signals of extreme crisis are overwhelming. Three years of near 0% with no recovery. A full year of ample USTreasury and mortgage bond monetization with no recovery. Tons of cash aid deliveries to the big US banks with no recovery. Some key corporate nationalizations with no recovery. Oodles of errant stimulus programs with no recovery. Some important misdirection in home loan aid initiatives with no recovery. The US Federal Reserve admits it can do nothing more as a recovery remains elusive. The USGovt is paralyzed by disguised fascist warmongers opposed by disguised marxist collectivists, but intent on maintaining the status quo among bank fraud. An approved accounting fraud directive is kept in place to present a picture of bank solvency. Intermediate credit markets have come to a standstill. The US stock market is in tatters. The USTreasury Bond market is the only conventional rally at work. And with all these programs, developments, and events, the USEconomy moves toward a recession with relentless determination and purpose, In today’s age of lying about price inflation by at least 5%, that means the recession is about to turn into a Minus 5% Recession after never exiting the recession recognized in 2009. The billboard messages are dire, ugly, dreadful, dangerous, and full of destruction, typical of systemic failure. Too bad the Keynesian textbooks do not have a chapter on banking system insolvency, or one quarter of the households living in negative equity, or central bank toxic paper pits, or global currency war, or confiscation of tyrant accounts. The ineffective monetary & fiscal policy has ushered in the nightmarish systemic failure. That is what is occurring.”

    So a leveraged buyout of the whole
    of Ireland. Of course govts’ world
    wide are offering rebates on the
    capital gains taxes on properties,
    property tax that is only paid by
    the poor and middle class. State
    monopoly utilities now “Privatised”
    and run as “Private sector” monopolies
    usually run by Bureaucrats that help
    “restructure” public utilities…..the
    criminal class you’ve gotta love em’
    ” properties always go up in value”
    thanks to a lot of bank owned debt…
    US banks now own mostly empty residential
    property and tent cities/ hoovervilles
    all over US yep this all makes great sense..

    Noonan insists we will never see the printing presses cranking up”


    If the state is not printing the punt as a plan B, Then they really are stupid imo.

    That’s an avalanche of seriously bad headlines there Youri. What does everyone think, is catastrophe week finally here? Or will it rumble on another couple of months? Is anyone drawing extra cash out the bank? …I’m trying to make sense of it all…

    the Baltic Dry Index is about the only chart that has been going up the last week:

  31. MirrorMirror says:

    Record Correlations + Record Low Mutual Fund Cash + Soaring Dispersion = Recipe For Redemption Driven Disaster

    The will force the en masse selling of winners to satisfy margin calls, exacerbated by record low mutual fund cash “dry powder” positions, and sets the groundwork for even more volatility as all traditional hedging strategies fail. So what is an investor to do in such a confusing environment? Pray… is the short answer.


  32. MirrorMirror says:

    @snoopy … I don’t rate GL much at all … sorry , I think that article was a waste of time personally.

  33. MirrorMirror says:

    @Spacehoppa … situation serious or not ?

    Sure it is serious, because nearly all the “political leaders” are nothing but jokers.

    When people lose faith in the Govts. ability to maintain stable currency, that is when the SHTF moment arrives.

    Gonzalo Lires has at least one thing right : Fiat Currency could work , if it wasn’t controlled by clowns.
    i.e. a marginal inflation rate would mean a SLOW currency depreciation over decades if not centuries, however History has prove time and again that “trusting” the leaders to do this is a pipe dream.

    I hear ya, there was a point to be made and he made it, wasnt much more than that I guess.
    Hardly news that The Bernank will print lol.
    I am intrigued to see if Maloney will get $10 oil, there must be some sort of time limitation on that one and in between QEs and while markets are dipping or soon after would seem like the time to do it.

  36. snoop diddy says:

    if oil goes to $10, that’s it I reckon.
    Oil wells will close down as uneconomical, supply chains affected, tax intake for govts decrease and then central bankers will print, print, print and the less oil supply will then make oil prices skyrocket, greater demeand for debt to buy oil and the hyperinflation genie will be out of the bottle.

  37. Paul Johnston, PhD Economics says:

    Max… you forgot to mention more on your show that IMF Chief Christine Lagarde is still under investigation for “Financial Fraud” in France , which should make people wonder what kind of people are running the IMF especially after Strauss-Khan was accused of raping a maid, and let’s not forget Burlusconi who’s a well-known Mafia associate.
