    Would be great to hear in next video why Silver didn't go up to $18.50. My understanding is dollar strengthen pulled it down temporarily.

    (sic) if wages were allowed to go down, services would cost less and the speed of the cycle would hasten. You have to factor in a time lag, so the hysteria is much too soon. Most banks will benefit.

    I do like that he trying to explain all of the moving parts in an economy. I'd argue that there is a services and good inflation; flat screens/smart phones are cheap as oppose to education/healrthcare

    Viewing Greg's contributions has more than paid for my annual RV subscription, IMO. RV continues to provide the best value imaginable for this level of macro economic thought.

    Always welcome Weldon's perspective, and provides a reminder of why the USD has held up so well especially over the past 12 months.

    the best of your analysts very clear and using "proof" in charts ... edges out the Rainmaker.

    Possible correction to data - Every one percent increase costs 180 billion per year, not 120 Billion. (18T times 1% = 180 Billion) which of course is even worse.

    Weldon for the Fed!
    Best line: "coming off emergency levels will cause an emergency" So true!

    I pray that you don't really believe that the Fed is transparent Greg. When you are transparent you submit to an audit. Going off a silver standard in 1964 has crushed the dreams of the poor.

    Most of us know a lot of this. The bottom line is until the collusion and deep capture of this market is dealt with it doesn't matter. Sad but the goons are picking the winners & losers. Thanks Greg

    Powerful.
    I was waiting to hear some song from Rush in the the end there. Tom Sawyer, maybe?
    Congratulations.
