Many market crooners and "technicians" have been stating that "The Fed is hyperinflating to bail out the economy."
The facts say otherwise.
This has profound investment implications.
If you are investing today on the premise that "The Fed has our backs", you're wrong.
If you are buying metals in the belief that The Fed is intentionally devaluing the dollar and hyperinflating the money supply, you're wrong.
If you think The Fed is intentionally being "the bagholder of last resort", monetizing bad debt, you're wrong.
If you think The Fed leads the market and sets rates, again, you're wrong. (Read the entire PDF - very carefully - you will find that The Fed is in fact following the market, and admits so!)
There simply is no more debate on any of these points, because we now have the actual data from the Horse's Mouth.
We now know the facts of life:
Fact: The good collateral has all been pledged.
Fact: The margin credit supply has been decreased.
Fact: Risk capacity is being withdrawn actively by The Fed.
Fact: The money supply is deflating.
Bottom line, "affordable" farm land (god is [NOT] making any more of it) to grow your own produce, Food, and ammo are 3 things that are good investments in troubled times.
If they own all the land they own all the food.
