The Japanese yen is now collapsing.
If the yen goes “super-nova” – i.e. collapses  - it could bring down the U.S.   The U.S. QE/Keynesian Ponzi scheme relies on Japan to help keep the scheme together.   
The yen is beginning to hyperinflate and it is now entering “parabolic” mode.  
First, this will cause the Japanese banks to implode because they’re loaded up with Japanese stocks and bonds, the way our banks are loaded with Treasuries.  The banking system would not survive a yen collapse.
If the Japanese banking system collapses, it will translate into massive derivative losses and short term funding losses in the U.S. banking and hedge funds.  In other words, U.S. banks have massive credit exposure risk to Japanese banks.

The parallels between the false prosperity of 2007 and the false prosperity of 2014 are rather striking.
If we go back and look at the numbers in the fall of 2007, we find that the Dow set an all-time high in October, margin debt on Wall Street had spiked to record levels, the unemployment rate was below 5 percent and Americans were getting ready to spend a record amount of money that Christmas season.

But then the very next year the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression shook the entire planet and everyone wondered why most people never saw it coming.  Well, now a similar pattern is unfolding right before our eyes.
Once this false bubble of hope runs out, all of our lives are going to dramatically change.

The amount of leverage in the U.S. Dollar fiat currency system reached an all time high in 2013.  Even though the growth in total U.S. currency more than doubled since the collapse of the Housing and Investment banking system in 2008, the majority of the increase was from just one bill in particular.
U.S. Department of Engraving and Printing issued more $100 Federal Reserve Notes in 2013, than in any year prior.
The total face value of the $100 bills printed in 2013 were $443 billion, the cost was just a mere $580 million… basically one-tenth of a percent of the cost of the face value.
If we extrapolate this further, at the current price of gold (including Friday’s HUGE MOVE UP) of $1,170 an ounce, it would take twelve $100 bills to purchase an ounce of gold…. with a little change left over.
However, if we compare the costs below, we can see owning PHYSICAL GOLD is a much better and safer deal when the Fiat Monetary FAN finally hits the COW EXCREMENT:

In the second part of this excellent interview with Finance & Liberty, TFMetalsReport’s Craig Hemke discusses:

  • Gold, silver, platinum, palladium: What are the best precious metals to invest in? 
  • Coins, rounds, or bars: Are government minted silver coins better than silver rounds?
  • Shortage- what shortage? When is a silver shortage going to hit? 
  • How do we predict the timing of an economic collapse?
  • Will gold or silver protect you in a coming hyper-inflationary currency collapse? 

Craig Hemke’s full interview is below:

Nothing is ‘normal’ when gold and silver aren’t circulating as money.  The central authorities need to manage the fiat and keep going the illusion of it having exchange value forever.  By managing the fiat price lower, as occurred on Friday, the supposition is that people will be ‘scared’ out of their gold/silver and exchange it for fiat to prevent further fiat ‘losses’.
Of course, such action will backfire as more and more hoard the metal at fire sale fiat prices, never to exchange it for fiat again.

The financial crisis of 2008 hasn’t ended - nor did it start from the overt reasons given.  Every second that gold and silver coins, as well as their attendant bills, do not circulate is a ‘financial crisis.’   How this manifests itself going forward is hard to predict.
It will likely involve global famine and the complete breakdown of payment systems.   If the central authorities, as well as the man on the street, continues to believe and accept the ideology of fiat as being money, civilisation will collapse a lot more quickly than would have been the case.  This is guaranteed.

gold

We already have monetary hyperinflation, defined as an accelerating debasement of the dollar.   And so for that matter all other currencies that are referenced to it are on a similar course, a condition which is unlikely to be halted except by a final systemic and currency crisis.
Attempts to stabilize the purchasing power of currencies by raising interest rates will very quickly develop into financial and economic chaos.
The insurance cost of owning gold is anomalously low, being considerably less than at the time of the Lehman crisis, which was the first inkling of systemic risk for many people.
We are being regularly advised by analysts working at investment banks to sell gold.   But bear in mind that the investment industry is driven by trend-chasing recommendations, because that is what investors demand.
Expecting analysts to value gold properly is as unlikely as farmers telling turkeys the truth about Thanksgiving.

In the article below,  we analyze the surprisingly likely drivers that may keep the US dollar strengthening over the next few years, especially if another economic/financial crisis arrives.
While there are many reasons to fear for the longer term viability of the US dollar given America’s current misguided monetary policy and exponentially increasing debt & liabilities, the next few years could well see the greenback appreciate further by 50-100% relative to the world’s other major fiat currencies.

In the second part of an explosive interview with Finance & Liberty’s Elijah Johnson (click here for Part 1), Jim Willie breaks down why Germany is repatriating their gold, and the implications of the Fed rehypothecating thousands of tons of gold over the past 20 years.   Willie claims that German intelligence in 2011 discovered the US’ brilliant plan of instigating a Ukranian coup, & turning the Western world against Russia & Gazprom- Germany responding by calling its gold reserves held on deposit at the NY Fed. 
Willie makes the astonishing claim that the death blows being sustained by the dollar are not accidental, but that Obama was placed into the office of President of the United States with the express purpose of destroying the US dollar!
Part 2 of Jim Willie’s Explosive Interview on Germany, Russia, & the dollar collapse is below:

In his latest interview with Finance & Liberty, Hat Trick Letter Editor Jim Willie discusses how the escalation of Russian sanctions will impact European & the US economies, the irony of Germany resisting fascism in the West- resulting in the Germans moving away from Europe & the US and towards Russia, and how the US plans to collapse Europe in a last-ditch attempt to save the petro-dollar!

The gearing of total world money and credit on today’s monetary base is forty times, but this is after a rapid expansion of the Fed’s balance sheet in recent years. Compared with the Fed’s monetary base before the Lehman crisis, world money is now nearly 180 times geared, which leaves very little room for continuing stability.
It may be too early to say this inverse pyramid is toppling over, because it is not yet fully confirmed by money flows between bond markets. However in the last few days Eurozone government bond yields have started rising. So far it can be argued that they have been over-valued and a correction is overdue.
But if this new trend is fuelled by international banks liquidating non-US bond positions, we will certainly have a problem.

The QE program created substantial hedge fund interest in gold-related ETFs. Unfortunately, QE never created the inflation the funds had anticipated.
That’s because commercial banks held the QE money they received, “tight to the chest”, rather than loaning it to businesses and consumers.
In a nutshell, by enlarging the money supply while GDP was falling, the Fed created deflation.
So, if the Fed were to shrink the money supply now, or at least reduce its rate of growth, while GDP rises, and banks start making loans with their “QE booty” at the same time…. is that inflationary?
The answer is yes.

China’s renminbi is becoming much more widely accepted around the world for trade settlement; a number of foreign governments are now holding renminbi reserves and doing deals to promote trade in renminbi.
Even in the United States, renminbi payment business increased 327% last year, and the US is now the fifth largest offshore renminbi settlement center.
It’s no secret here, this is happening right under our noses.  The financial system IS changing.

People who ignore this trend do so at their own financial peril.
Yet those who understand what’s happening and align themselves accordingly stand to make fortunes.
The Weimar Republic’s episode with hyperinflation in the 1920s is a great example.  Despite all the warning signs, most people did nothing… and they got wiped out.
A handful of people, though, saw the writing on the wall. They took steps to safeguard what they had. And they allocated their investment capital to bet that the currency would collapse.
They were right.   And vast fortunes were created in a matter of months.

The collapse of the Petro-dollar global reserve currency has presented one of the biggest opportunities in recent memory. 
There is still time to position yourself to profit from the collapse of the petro-dollar- rather than have your wealth obliterated.

hyperinflation

The Paradigm Shift has reached a higher gear.  The danger and risk levels have gone to critical levels.  The risk of economic destruction has gone into recognizable critical levels.
The Emperor’s court is showing critical internal defections.  The biggest ray of light comes from Germany, which shows important signs of refusal to permit its economic destruction in order to suit the elite plans of a grander fascist state.  The Germans have suffered hyper inflation before, and will not again.  The Germans have suffered a national calamity from an integrated fascist state, and will not again.  It is becoming excruciatingly clear that the Global Axis of Fascism is the US, UK, and its leash holder in the SouthEast Mediterranean.  The entire global system has reached the critical phase. The breakdown phase is accelerating.
 The Russian sanctions have an obvious whiplash of severe impact to the US and Europe.  The whiplash impact to the US is to expose the USDollar as a corrupted cancerous currency, for which coerced war and economic suicide are the high cost of continued support.
The USGovt is left with no more options than war, since the financial front has been lost to insolvency, market interference, bond fraud, and leveraged corruption.
A climax is fast approaching.  The USDollar is stuck in the implosion stage.  The USDollar will be rejected, the climax a Weimar implosion of the currency. 
The King Dollar has been wrecked, knocked off its throne, never to return to prestige.
