Martin Armstrong – The Debt Of Nations (Part 1)

from FinancialSurvivalNet
Martin Armstrong is back for another installment… The Euro is crumbling. So is the yen. The beneficiary is the dollar which has been going up. This is the future of things to come. There’s no turning back now. Money printing is out of control and so is sovereign debt. This will eventually lead to some type of debt jubilee, either total or partial, but there’s really no other way out. Governments, by their very nature, will always spend more than they have and make up the difference by taxing and borrowing. No one in government ever wants to tell people that the party is over. Therefore, it goes on and on until there’s a major crash and the system has to be reset. According to Martin, it’s down the road a ways, but not too far.

HUI to Gold Ratio Exceeds Nov. 2008 Low Then Bounces

by Dan Norcini
Trader Dan Norcini

The ratio briefly dropped below the low made back in November of 2008 before bouncing higher in today’s session. It came very close to matching the October 2008 low. It could be that we have gotten the answer to our question posed previously whether the gold shares would need to move lower against the price of bullion before the HUI would finally bottom out. I want to see a bit more subsequent action to feel that has been confirmed.
By the way, I will try to provide a CLOSING chart of this later on today if my schedule permits.

It’s Not the Economy Stupid! / By Andrew Hoffman / March 6th, 2013
I have written endlessly of the varying – and changing – meanings of the famous political cry, “It’s the Economy, Stupid!”  Created in 1992 by the Clinton campaign, it inferred that since the economy was floundering, incumbents (like Bush I) should be voted out.  It’s the oldest strategy in the book; but was never used so succinctly…
It’s the economystupid – Wikipedia
However, in today’s world of collapsing economies and surging inflation, its meaning has shifted 180 degrees.  In other words, with HOPE of new jobs all but gone, a weak economy ensures votes for those promising the most entitlements; but NOT actual jobs.  In other words, the typical societal decline; from capitalism to socialism to communism
Regarding financial markets, the top PROPAGANDA platform of those trying to discredit Precious Metals is that a “recovering” economy means gold and silver should collapse.  Particularly as PAPER naked shorting is employed whenever “better than expected” economic data is released, a PERCEPTION has been created of such a connection.  It matters not if the data is true; of measurable quality; or consistent with other reports.  So long as the Cartel ATTACKS PAPER PMs as the reports are issued, the doting MSM will be happy to make a connection; a la “market action makes commentary.”
As discussed in the “DOW-GOLD PARADOX,” things are not always as they seem.  Incessant PPT-support gives the impression the “DOW JONES PROPAGANDA AVERAGE” is always rising; but in reality, has barely budged in 12 years – and fallen significantly when adjusting for INFLATION and SURVIVOR BIAS…

Embry – Massive Silver Short Positions To Force COMEX Default

from KingWorldNews:
Today John Embry told King World News that in the silver market there will be a force majeure on the COMEX because of the massive short positions held by JP Morgan. But first, here is what Embry, who is chief investment strategist at Sprott Asset Management, had to say regarding gold: “I’ve been following the gold scene for 30 years, and I believe it’s been subject to a suppression scheme for probably the last 25 years. But I have never seen anything quite like what’s gone on lately.
The question I ask myself is, ‘What is going on?’ The very same factors that have driven the Dow to all-time highs, which is basically just excess liquidity in the system, should, in a real world, have driven gold and silver to record highs.
Instead they are both under enormous downside pressure in the paper markets, despite the fact that the physical markets remain very firm…”

This Little-Known Stock Could Double Thanks to the "Patent Cliff"

Generic drug companies are standing on the cusp of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
In the next five years, a total of $290 billion in prescription drug sales are expected to lose patent protection, making brand-name pharmaceutical companies vulnerable to generic competition. The effect this so-called "patent cliff" will have on the generics space cannot be overstated.

Take cholesterol blockbuster Lipitor for example, which peaked with annual sales of $13 billion in 2006. In spite of Pfizer Inc.'s (NYSE: PFE) greatest efforts to hold market share and protect its crown jewel, sales of Lipitor fell by 50% the first week it went off patent in late December 2011. But for Ranbaxy Laboratories, it was a watershed moment, reaping $500 million in sales for its generic version of Lipitor in just the first six months the drug had gone off patent protection.
The generic space is littered with success stories just like this.

Activis Inc. (NYSE: ACT)
, which has rolled out a series of copycat drugs in the past year that includes authorized versions of Lipitor and Johnson and Johnson's (NYSE: JNJ) attention deficit hyperactivity disorder drug Concerta, saw its share price jump 44% in 2012. (more)
