Alasdair Macleod: Recession, prices, and the crackup boom
By Alasdair Macleod
Thursday, June 2, 2022
Initiated by monetarists, the debate between an outlook for inflation versus recession intensifies. We appear to be moving on from the stagflation story into outright fears of the consequences of monetary tightening and of interest rate overkill.
In common with statisticians in other jurisdictions, Britain's Office for Budget Responsibility is still effectively saying that inflation of prices is transient, though the prospect of a return toward the 2% target has been deferred until 2024. Chancellor Sunak blithely accepts these figures to justify a one-off hit on oil producers, when, surely, with his financial expertise he must know the situation is likely to be very different from the OBR's forecasts.

Prime Mining Intercepts 62 gpt Gold and 978 gpt Silver over 3.6 Meters
in Step-Out Drilling at Guadalupe East Deposit in Mexico
Wednesday, June 1, 2022
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Canada -- Prime Mining Corp. (TSX-V: PRYM, OTCQB: PRMNF, Frankfurt: 04V3) announces additional Phase 2 drill results from 12 step-out drill holes at the Guadalupe East deposit in Mexico. Guadalupe East is one of eight known gold-silver deposits that comprise the current resource at Los Reyes.
22GE-53 has four intercepts:
-- 61.99 grams per tonne gold and 977.6 gpt silver over 3.6 meters estimated true width and 9.67 gpt gold and 314.0 gpt silver over 1.1 m estimated true width.
-- 9.67 gpt gold and 314.0 gpt silver over 1.1 meters etw.
-- 3.01 gpt gold and 220.0 gpt silver over 1.0 meter etw.
-- 5.90 gpt gold and 341.0 gpt silver over 0.7 meters etw. ...
Chief Executive Officer, Daniel Kunz commented: "The high-grade drill results reported today will continue to expand the resource potential at Guadalupe East considerably. We are encouraged by multiple intercepts of high-grade gold-silver mineralization being encountered in individual drill holes on the west end of this area. We await assay results from more step-out drill holes and expect to report these results as soon as they become available. Ongoing drilling has now defined the Guadalupe East vein group length over 420 meters and the total strike length of the Guadalupe East vein system now over 1,000 metres.” ...
... For the remainder of the announcement:
This article clarifies why an entirely different outcome is virtually certain. To explain why, the reasonings of monetarists and neo-Keynesians are discussed and the errors in their understanding of the causes of inflation is exposed.
Finally, we can see in plainer sight the evolving risk leading towards a systemic fiat currency crisis encompassing banks, central banks, and fiat currencies themselves. It involves understanding that inflation is not rising prices but a diminishing purchasing power for currency and bank deposits, and that the changes in the quantity of currency and credit discussed by monetarists are not the most important issue.
In a world awash with currency and bank deposits the real concern is the increasing desire of economic actors to reduce these balances in favour of an increase in their ownership of physical assets and goods. As the crisis unfolds, we can expect increasing numbers of the public to attempt to reduce their cash and bank deposits with catastrophic consequences for their currencies' purchasing power.
That being so, we appear to be on a fast track towards a final crackup boom whereby the public attempts to reduce their holdings of currency and bank deposits, evidenced by selected non-financial asset and basic consumer items prices beginning to rise rapidly. ...
