Bill Murphy

Show Highlights
  • Bill Murphy of GATA.orgreturns to the show with fresh insights on the PMs sector.
  • Palladium is key precious metal in the auto manufacturing sector used primarily for emissions reduction in gas engines.
  • China and other BRICS nations are stockpiling the metal amid a global shortage.
  • The price of Palladium recently reached parity with gold.
  • Palladium's sister metal, Platinum is $400 less expensive and is an excellent substitute metal for palladium.
  • The price differential may present an appealing arbitrage opportunity.
  • Silver also has a highly inelastic demand curve with not just one key application but thousands of industrial uses.
  • If BRICS manufacturers turn their focus towards silver, an epic short-squeeze scenario could erupt.
  • Silver, arguably the"King of industrial metals" could ascend to parity with competing precious metals, 10-100 fold higher.
  • Once investor's passion for paper assets evaporates a tidal wave of capital could flow into the relatively tiny PMs sector.
  • Given that sources seem to indicate that most new money managers were inactive during the 2000 shares bust, the impact of a 3 sigma event could send reverberations around the global financial arena.
  • Factom Blockchain CEO, Paul Snow makes his show debut with an overview of his unique distributed-ledger blockchain.
  • Factom was built from the "ground-up," designed to restore transparency to distributed ledgers via a dual token system.
  • FCT security tokens are separate from the daily operations tokens that resemble forever stamps.
  • The Proof of Work (PoW) is similar to Ethereum Gas, versus Proof of Stake (PoS) such as BitShares.
  • Factom brings blockchain immutability to the ledger system facilitating previously impossible services.
  • Factom improves the real estate sector, restoring faith in transactions, such as loan origination, and closing.
  • Another key Factom use case includes the Internet of Things (IoT) in homes and office networks.
  • Analysts project growth in connectivity with mobile phones, laptops, desktops, TVs, kitchen and household appliances.
  • Most IoT connected devices currently deploy few if any security features, representing a weak point of easy access.
  • IoT networks are vulnerable to attack, creating a threat to the entire network.
  • Factom is already working with the Department of Homeland Security to shield key camera and surveillance devices.
  • Factom thwarts spoofing by highly sophisticated hackers.
  • As such threats become more prevalent Factom will be positioned with first-mover advantage in the IoT eco-space.
  • For added security and peace of mind, the Factom Protocol embeds data directly into the Bitcoin and Ethereum blockchains through the Merkle treealgorithm for merely $0.001 per ten minute hashing cycle, $1.00 per week, $52 annually.

    Show Highlights
    • Michael Pento, President and Founder of Pento Portfolio Strategies LLCreturns to Goldseek.com Radio with a cutting-edge dialogue on Bitcoin.
    • Fiat money is quickly becoming a true "barbarous relic" thanks to the unsound policies of global central bankers.
    • The host outlines a bullet list of the remarkable qualities of cryptocurrencies "future-money" and the duo engage in a thought provoking debate.
    • The Bitcoin Bubble - the exponential rise of Bitcoin / Cryptos in 2017, where Bitcoin ascended from $1,000 to $20,000 in only 12 months, a 20x advance.
    • The host / guest find parallels with the bitcoin buble and the epic Nikkei market zenith. The host finds similarities with the Dot.com bubble where many companies survived and thrived, such as Amazon, Google and eBay.
    • Governments can shutdown cryptos easily: Mr. Pento notes the small number of BTC holders and core developing team as potential challenges.
    • The host counters with the decentralized nature of many coins and peer-to-peer structure of Bitcoin.
    • Bitcoin remains a national currency of Japan, an extremely techno-friendly country.
    • Crytocurrencies are not money or currencies: Mr. Pento says cryptos are not rare and indestructible.
    • The host counters with the nearly indecipherable nature and immutable aspects as well as the distributed digital ledger.
    • Cryptos maintain value, albeit via highly volatile, an ideal peer-to-peer digital currency solution.
    • Gold is real money but not silver: Gold is the king of currencies, silver is the prince and cryptos share many similar qualities.
    • Bitcoin has been diluted by Forks (similar to dividends) and 10,000 other competing tokens.
    • The host agrees that there is dilution, however, there are also over 15,000 stocks trading on US exchanges and many companies within each industry.
    • Dilution does not detract from the value of cryptos but is de facto evidence of the need for diverse tokens.
    • Cryptos have no value? Mr. Pento advocates digital wealth as a chief means of transferring wealth abroad.
    • The host directs the dialogue to the Bitcoin revolution underway in Venezuela where people are fleeing in droves amid 10 million percent inflation.
    • Transferring wealth across borders is challenging given the $300,000 could price of $3 loaf of bread, according to forecasts.
    • Just 2 years earlier and a gold coin $120,000,000 or $120 million in Venezeula!
    • Parallels are drawn between the numerous inflationary fiasco's from the genesis of civilization until today, including Ancient Greece, Rome, China.
    • 100 years of inflation during the 1700's in France is outlined best by Fiat Money Inflation in France (White, 1876), free PDF / HTML copies here.
    • In the last century, hyperinflation ravaged the economies throughout Europe as well as Zimbabwe.
    • Michael Pento outlines his less than favorable $1,300 Bitcoin price forecast via the Pentonomic multivariate-regression model.
    • Russia may purchase up to $10 billion in Bitcoin as a currency diversification according to Zero Hedge.com.

    • The inordinately large global financial-bubble in paper assets as well as an inflated housing echo-bubble part II.
    • The Federal Reserve may soon reverse monetary policy to shore up the housing market and domestic economy.
    • According to Shadowstats.com's economic-data revisions, the culprit remains understated inflation-figures, that vastly overstate the GDP numbers.
    • As the masses recognize the economic slight-of-hand, a panic for hard assets will inevitably ensue, sending overinflated paper assets into the abyss.
    • The current restrictive QT could soon shift to more dovish QE operations, reversing the rate hike and toxic debt sales policy.

    • The battle between the White House and the Fed could escalate adding to market volatility.
    • Even if the duo are wrong and the Dow Jones Industrials runs to 50k, the perfect panacea remains gold.
    • Takeaway point: a 10% golden insurance policy for every investment portfolio carries zero premiums and cannot negatively impact the excepted return.
    • Arguably, gold is an enhanced insurance alternative, representing the most pragmatic non-premium policy available.

    Happy New Year!


    Show Highlights
    • Michael Pento, President and Founder of Pento Portfolio Strategies LLC returns to Goldseek.com Radio with comprehensive economic analysis.
    • While his Autumn economic / market downturn came to pass as predicted on this show, market rallies may be merely selling opportunities.
    • Investors are encouraged to prepare for "... a global depression, the likes of which we've never seen..."
    • In the wake of QT operations via 9 Fed rate hikes, the higher cost of issuing new debt has eliminated much of the incentive for corporate buybacks.
    • Unlike 2008-2009 Great Recession where Fed Policymakers held merely a $0.8 trillion debt load and the luxury of a 5% lending rate cushion.
    • Today, merely 2.5% rates plus the enormous $4 trillion Fed balance sheet threatens the validity of a new round of QE Part II.
    • The global economy could be facing an imminent deflationary economic collapse.
    • Economic stabilization in the 2018-2019 could require 24/7 printing at the US Treasury.
    • Such operations would decimate free markets, initially through debilitating deflation, followed by the panacea of last resort, dollar-devaluation.
    • The end result: rampant inflation reminiscent of Zimbabwe, Argentina and the Weimar Republic.
    • Given the financial risks outlined in the dialogue, the guest / host concur that the nascent PMs bull market presents excellent diversification / insurance opportunities.
    • Season 14 kicks off with part II of the discussion with Bob Hoye of Institutional Advisors, with stellar news for gold shares aficionado.
    • "PM's stocks will go to the equivalent of $10,000 gold," in the nascent bull market advance.
    • The dialogue includes the "citizen uprising" occurring throughout Europe and North America.
    • The host underscores the timeless wisdom of Mohandas Ghandi, who promoted societal enhancement via nonviolent resistance.
    • Economic history is replete with examples of cooperative trade that boosted the GDP of all nations involved despite sociopolitical differences.
    • Each country concentrated on its own relative competitive edge via Ricardo's models to the overall benefit of humanity, the hallmark prosperity.
    • Much of the recent prosperity was unknown merely 2-3 generations hence; society was devoid of antibiotics, AI, air travel, refrigeration, mobile phones.
    • Once trade barriers are erected, Adam Smith's invisible hand is burdened by taxes, reducing economic benefits of trade.
    • The Fed rate hiking cycle was clearly a key component of the equities zenith of 2018 and subsequent selloff.
    • The most glaring contributing factor is arguably the trade war between the US and China, where policymakers have chosen to ignore the lessons of history.
    • The Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act as well as the subsequent stock market collapse of nearly 90% and the Great Depression that followed.
    • Will history rhyme resulting in the Great Depression II, eclipsing the deluge of the 2008 Great Recession?
    • The increased market volatility and shift in CME FFF's contracts encourages investors to deploy defensive safe-haven investing methods.
    • TIME article for Bitcoin naysayers.
