Professor Fekete is one of two examiners of Keith Weiner’s dissertation. The other is NASE faculty member Professor Juan Ramon Rallo, professor of economics at accredited King Juan Carlos University in Madrid.
I agree that the cobasis for gold is a reflection of its scarcity and this is where the rubber hits the tar. Where can I find longer term data on the cobasis vs gold price. Surely one could expect that periods of higher (positive) cobasis would lead to higher gold prices, until the imbalances between paper and physical prices have been eradicated.
Thanks, Mr. Weiner, for your article on the coming demise of the Swiss Franc today. I feel like I have a much greater understanding of the end game that extremely low yields on debt bring. I didn’t understand this before. Economics isn’t that hard, I just needed someone to explain it well!! Thank you
Thanks for your talk recently in Zurich. Here is the first bank that passes negative interests rates on to its consumers:
Forecasting economics is like forecasting weather and Sir, you are wrong. You talk in absolutes on subjects that are subjective and poorly understood. Classic recent example, Brexit. When I worked for a certain deviant corporation, they went through a lot of work to spread your corporate socialism philosophy but its just wrong and it just leads to pain. How on earth do they grant PhDs on Economics when it is only an ideology on the worship of money is beyond me.
How on earth could anyone read my work, and say “corporate socialism philosophy?”
Our universities are pouring out hundreds of thousands of these… let that sink in….
The corporation you worked for obviously made a very poor hiring decision.
Can you please write a blog about fed now and your predictions for the replacement of the paper dollar with the digital one?
I am working on it!
