Whether you’re happy about it or not, Joe Biden will take the presidential oath of office on Wednesday, January 20. But while it’s the official induction of a new president, the real inauguration will be for one of our favorite metals, the one that is the most versatile and vital for the world we live in today: silver. That’s because President Biden’s policies will be a boon for demand—both industrial and monetary. Here’s a look at what is in store for silver, which is likely to start the day he takes the oath…

Economic prognosticator Jeff Thomas has, for decades, had an unusually consistent record for anticipating future events accurately. After an unsettling 2020, we interviewed Jeff to get his take on where we’ve been and what the future might hold.

The word of the year, according to Merriam-Webster, was unprecedented. Perhaps overused, but apropos nonetheless. Our ITV review shows just how unprecedented the year was, including an examination of gold’s annual performance vs. other assets, along with the potential catalysts that still lie in wait. Let’s first look at the fourth quarter…

There’s a well-known old fable that describes a frog being boiled alive. It states that if a frog is dropped in boiling water, it will hop out. But if it’s placed in lukewarm water, it will be comfortable. Then, if the heat is turned up slowly, it will not perceive the danger and will be boiled to death. In political terms, this translates into a slow increase in, say, the slow rise of taxation or the gradual removal of freedoms. But there’s another way to boil the electorate of a country: have them become willing participants in their own demise.

There’s an investment legend that, in 1929, Joseph Kennedy (father of the late US President), living in New York City, stopped on the street to get his shoes shined. At that time, shoeshine boys were ubiquitous in the business district of New York. The shoeshine boy offered Joe some stock tips. Joe decided that, when even shoeshine boys are offering stock tips, it’s time to get out of the market. He sold off his entire portfolio immediately and the crash came soon after, leaving him with his wealth intact, at a time when so many others had lost theirs. Is the story true?

“Whichever party gains the day, tyrants or demagogues are most sure to take the offices.” The quote above may cause the reader to nod his head, as throughout much of the world today, we are witnessing a distinct lack of choice in “democratic” elections – a “damned if you do; damned if you don’t” choice of equally incapable and even dangerous candidates. However, the quote is from 1841 and was made by New York Assemblyman Clinton Roosevelt, a distant cousin of Franklin Roosevelt. The Roosevelt family occupies a recurrent and pernicious place in American political history. Other relatives of President Roosevelt include not only the obvious Theodore Roosevelt, but John Adams, John Quincy Adams and Martin Van Buren. More interesting is that, early on, the idea of a dominant central government became the focus of the Roosevelt family

I’ve put together a few simple strategies to employ in 2021. And sooner rather than later. One reason is because when we get to next December, I don’t want to have any regrets (which I’ve sometimes had in the past, as you’ll see). The day of financial and monetary reckoning is getting nearer, and I want to fully capitalize on what I think is coming. A few simple steps will help me do that. I share in case they’re useful to you, too. Here are three specific investment strategies I plan to use in the new year…

In 1984, St. Kitts & Nevis offered, for the first time, Citizenship by Investment, or CBI. The idea was that, through an on-island real estate investment of $400,000, or a one-time “donation” of $250,000 to the government, a non-Kittitian could receive citizenship within a few short months. To gain citizenship, he would not be required to live in the islands, nor even to visit them. But his new citizenship would allow him to live there if he chose to do so, without obligation to pay any income or capital gains taxes locally. In addition, his new passport would be honoured in 132 countries, providing him with tremendous freedom. Not surprisingly, the programme was inspired by the knowledge that many countries in the former “Free World” have become increasingly rapacious as regards their citizenries. As is always the case historically, when once-powerful nations find themselves in a state of decline, rather than correct the problems they have created, governments tend to squeeze their people even harder. Many of those people then seek a means by which they can exit the clutches of their governments, but the lack of a second passport often enslaves them to the country of their birth.

Yes, gold and silver prices temporarily suffered in the 2008 meltdown too, but that was largely a liquidity event… because so many investors were long stocks, they were forced to liquidate some gold holdings to cover their positions. Gold reversed literally the month after the market meltdown as investors rushed to safe havens. Stocks took a lot longer, and many bonds stopped paying dividends along with the crash in their prices. The bottom line is that gold has outperformed stocks and bonds over the past 15 years. Actually longer than that, as empirical research demonstrates. But what about going forward? Is gold and silver still a large portion of my portfolio?

For the last four years, Americans have become increasingly polarised – divided between Democrat crusaders who are determined to save America from becoming a racist, sexist Nazi dictatorship under Donald Trump, versus Republican crusaders who are determined to save America from becoming a liberal Marxist state under a Democratic reign. This fervour has become so extreme that families can no longer meet for the holidays without a conversational blow-up. No longer are people “entitled to their opinions.” This has become a crusade between Good and Evil. (“I’m good. You’re evil.”) Until November, the great majority of Americans appear to have been hoping that the November election would end this strife one way or the other. My take on this has been that the opposite would happen after 3rd November. The fireworks would increase exponentially after the election. The election would be hotly contested by whomever was the apparent loser.
