The Tobin Tax: The Deficit-Busting Levy Wall Street Hates

Filed in economy, Gold Investing, Gold Prices, lead, silver by on August 25, 2010 0 Comments

After the Nov. 2 midterm elections, the Obama administration and Congress are going to have to scramble to fill a trillion-dollar hole in the U.S budget, and tax increases may be the only option. A tax increase won’t be good news for an already wheezing economic recovery that seems to get weaker with each new report or indicator that’s issued. But the type of tax that’s chosen will go a long way in determining just how much damage the U.S. economy will have to endure. With a deficit in excess of $1 trillion, there aren’t a lot of options. One possibility would be to allow the 2001 and 2003 Bush tax cuts to expire, which would have a depressing effect on the economy and most people’s pocketbooks. But a better option would be to devise some new taxes that may prove less damaging. Indeed, there’s even one possibility that might even do some economic good if it’s implemented correctly. It’s called a ” Tobin tax .” To see how a reasonably set “Tobin tax” could help U.S. leaders to fix the nation’s finances, please read on…

Natural Gas Could Soon Double

Filed in GOld juniors, Gold Market, natural-gas, ubs by on June 17, 2010 0 Comments

We nailed it… absolutely nailed it. When we made the case for the natural gas bottom last month… we were doing what any smart investor was doing – ignoring the herd. These guys were so busy panning natural gas that they missed the rally… and they’re still missing it Since our call… Even as the Dow plunged, n atural gas ran from about $4 to more than $4.85. And it’s still running… Heck, by summer’s end, we could see $8 (easily). Time to go long natural gas Sure, the usual arguments have long been that supply is out-pacing demand… and on and on. But we now have: A disaster in the Gulf, where 15% to 20% of natural gas production originates. And the BP spill is sure to put a crimp in future production. Predictions for a disastrous hurricane season and very warm weather ahead; Hurricane season could send natural gas much higher if production is negatively impacted. The same thing is true for crude. And a president who is now supporting a natural gas future: The time has come, once and for all, for this nation to fully embrace a clean energy future,” Obama said. “That means [making] everything from our homes and businesses to our cars and trucks more energy efficient. It means tapping into our natural gas reserves, and moving ahead with our plan to expand our nation’s fleet of nuclear power plants. And it means rolling back billions of dollars in tax breaks to oil companies so we can prioritize investments in clean energy research and development. Obama’s support in and of itself is a game-changer! And if those weren’t enough, we have affirmation from a proven sector analyst Henry Groppe, who we’ve mentioned in the past, also believes natural gas will double by the end of summer. Groppe argues that shale wells are depleting rapidly, and that there is a real shortage of gas “which will become apparent this summer in dramatic fashion… Gas inventories are about to get a lot tighter… new supplies are overstated, and prices are headed north of $8 by the end of summer.” And, as we told you

The Labour boss of Britain’s Food Standards Agency has been condemned for criticising opponents of GM food as ‘anti-science’. Lord Jeff Rooker was appointed in the dying days of the Labour administration to the powerful post of running the nation’s supposedly independent food watchdog. However, the pro-GM politician stands accused of trying to use the Agency to force so-called Frankenstein Food onto the nation’s dinner tables. WRH permalink

Natural Gas Stages Comeback

Filed in GOld juniors, natural-gas, ubs by on June 7, 2010 0 Comments

It’s hard to make money when you’re following herd mentality… and that’s because herd mentality is a sucker’s bet. Recently, the herd was so hell-bent on betting against natural gas that they missed the rally. Now I don’t know about you, but I’m here to make money… So I say screw the herd and go long natural gas. Advertisement Canadian Province Says “No” to Coal… You thought the U.S. Government was intrusive? Right now, Canada’s new “Green ATF” is closing down coal/oil power plants all over British Columbia… While funneling over $30 billion to companies of their choosing to pick up the slack. Find out here which company will more than double in size as coal and oil are switched off. Since May— as the Dow plunged from 11,200 to less than 9,400— natural gas ran from about $4 to more than $4.85. Heck, natural gas plays like United States Natural Gas (UNG) rocketed from $6.75 to more than $8.50. The sucker’s bet here is to avoid natural gas any further. Time to go long natural gas The usual arguments have long been that supply is out-pacing demand… That our ability to horizontally drill for shale gas has made the supply picture seem unlimited… That the short-term outlook was bleak… Those are all examples of herd mentality — but this is the same herd that missed a sizeable rally that’s just getting underway: We have a disaster in the Gulf, where 15% to 20% of natural gas production originates. The BP spill is sure to put a crimp in future production. Heck, if the worst oil spill in history isn’t enough to push natural gas on Americans, I don’t know that anything ever will… We have predictions for a disastrous hurricane season and very warm weather ahead; We have a president who is now supporting a natural gas future: The time has come, once and for all, for this nation to fully embrace a clean energy future,” Obama said. “That means [making] everything from our homes …

Wall Street Get Smacked Again – Post-Trading Commentary

“Every now and then, what starts out as an apparently isolated incident of tragedy or stupidity turns out to be one of those defining events in history. A morning in September at the start of the decade turned out that way, when what seemed, at first, to be an errant act of navigational aerial stupidity turned out to be an initial salvo of terrorism. Now, we have what started out as a human tragedy, the loss of life aboard an offshore rig, turning into a defining moment for the oil industry, national security and domestic oil supply. The BP disaster has turned offshore drilling into a political quagmire, and has destroyed one of our nation’s pillars of domestic oil supply,” analysts at Cameron Hanover writes in a post-trading commentary Friday
