Marc Faber believes instead of there being a currency war,  central banks are co-ordinating money printing in one central bank to another.

Faber has made a firm prediction that the Federal Reserve will not raise interest rates in 2015.

Faber answers some tough questions after listening to some comments he made in 2013 regarding QE and the Fed.

Kitco News spoke with Peter Hug yesterday afternoon following the release of higher inflation data in the U.S.

The main topic of the interview is the U.S. dollar's recent correction. Hug says gold is taking its direction mainly from the dollar. “If the dollar continues to weaken, it is short-term positive for the metals,” he says.

Hug believes the key level for the US dollar vs. the euro is €1.10.

Hug still believes the macro picture is for a stronger dollar.

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss being a bankster in this economy means to be abandoning ship as Americans ‘mysteriously’ stop spending and the dollar keeps surging as if a ‘colossal financial event’ were around the corner.

Keiser and Herbert use history as a guide to explain why past gains of this magnitude in the US dollar have led to "extreme financial or geopolitical distress."

Peter Schiff believes that if you read the "entirety of the Fed statement" it is more concerned about the US economy and more dovish than it was at the last FOMC meeting.

Schiff continues to explain that the Fed is just playing one huge "word game".

Schiff strongly believes that "the Fed wants to continue to maintain the pretense, that it is advancing on its journey, that it is moving closer to a destination, to which it has absolutely no intention of actually arriving, and that is raising interest rates."

Marc Faber explains why a strong US dollar is negative for its economy.

Faber believes we are surrounded by bubbles, but the air is beginning to come out. Faber discusses the invisible tax on the average man's savings.

Faber comments that, "When I think of central banks, I don't think there is much to laugh about, its actually tragic."




In Greg Hunter's latest interview he asks Nomi Prins the question: is anything in the financial sector actually fixed?

Former top Wall Street banker Nomi Prins contends, "We have many trillions of dollars and government policy trying to basically cover up the holes in the entire financial system that could create another Lehman or multiple Lehmans."

As gold continues its decent, Kitco News speaks with Peter Hug to see if he sees a turnaround for prices. According to Peter, fundamentals look weak for gold.

The US dollar's unchecked rise continues and is negatively impacting precious metals and energy prices.

Hug speaks to some pillars which have been holding up the gold market, including uncertainty in Greece.

Peter argues that the strong dollar is what is pushing gold prices down since the metal is a dollar-based commodity.

Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the publicly-listed companies eating themselves through stock buybacks and what this means for a monetary policy which encourages it in our new financialized era, in which corporations borrow not to invest but to take money out of the company.

Public companies bought back more than $100 billion of their own stock last month as opposed to investing in the company or hiring to expand.

This is the most since this data began being recorded in 1995.

David Morgan of Silver-Investor.com says the world is loaded with debt that is going to explode. It’s just a matter of time. When might the economy and the “debt bomb” explode? Morgan predicts this fall.

Why?

Morgan says, "Momentum is one indicator and the money supply. Also, when I made my forecast, there is a big seasonality, and part of it is strict analytical detail and part of it is being in this market for 40 years. I got a pretty good idea of what is going on out there and the feedback I get..."

He went on to comment that,

Keith Neumeyer sits with Kitco News at the BMO Global Metals and Mining Conference to talk about First Majestic Silver's latest results as well as a new initiative he is involved with.

He likens the conference to "speed dating".

Kitco News speaks with BMO’s Jessica Fung to see how she sees gold and silver set up for the coming year.

Based on her research, Fung says she expects U.S. dollar strength, which has hindered upside potential for metals prices, to continue.

“In this environment, where we expect the U.S. dollar to continue to strengthen, I think we’re going to maintain a very high gold-to-silver ratio,” she says, adding that this increasing ratio hasn’t allowed silver to keep up with any gold price upswings.

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the government’s economic policies apparently cooked up in a crack den - literally!

Tabloids in the UK claim to have footage of the Chancellor’s top economic adviser smoking crack.

Chinese supermarkets have sprung up in rural Ghana, servicing hundreds of immigrant Chinese.

Peter Schiff explains that the recent PMI numbers show a rate of decline equal to that of October of 2008. The Chicago PMI is now as low as it was in June of 2009, "the heart of the Great Recession".

Schiff dives into some recent comments by Alan Greenspan.

Greenspan defends the Fed but also criticizes them in a bizarre interview.

When asked in a recent interview, in respect to the ongoing monetization of debt and record low interest rates, if "this could end badly", Greenspan replies, "not necessarily".

The US Geological Survey estimates that South Africa retains nearly 50% of the world's unmined gold, according to VICE NEWS.

In the 1970s, South Africa was the world's most prolific exporter of gold. Over the years, industrial decline has seen widespread closures of the mines across the country. However, Johannesburg sits on the biggest gold basin ever discovered.

It's perhaps not surprising that many of these abandoned mines have seen a recent boom in illegal mining activity.
