We’ve all heard the “peak oil” story for years. That’s the theoretical point where all of the significant reserves of oil have been discovered, output is at a maximum and production then declines steadily year after year from that point.

It turns out peak oil is a myth, at least so far. New oil is being discovered all the time and new technology allows more oil to be recovered from existing discoveries. The world is awash in oil even as oil competes with natural gas, solar, wind and other alternative sources of energy. There is no energy crisis and perhaps there never will be.

But what about peak gold? That’s turning out to be a different story. According to this article, peak gold production is already here.

There are no new gold fields of any significance waiting to be discovered. There is no new technology that can extract gold from places where it cannot now be recovered. This does not mean gold production stops — just that output does not increase and will start to go down.

Of course, gold exists in minute quantities in everything from seawater to distant asteroids, but the costs of recovery from those sources are astronomical and make no commercial sense. When it comes to gold, what you see is what you get. Yet global demand continues to rise from central banks and sovereign wealth funds in Russia, China, Iran, Turkey, Kazakhstan, Vietnam and other countries around the world (not including America, it seems).

You don’t need a Ph.D. to realize that if supply is declining and demand is increasing, then gold prices have nowhere to go but up.

IF THE SCIENCE IS NOT ON YOUR SIDE, JUST TRY THREATS

It’s clear that good science does not support the extreme claims of the climate alarmists. Yes, there is such a thing as climate change, but it’s slow, difficult to predict and almost impossible to model because of the complexity of the process. The climate alarmists have grabbed most of the headlines for the past ten

WHY TRUMP WILL WIN REELECTION: NOT POLLS OR PUNDITS; JUST COMMON SENSE

Political analysts use polls, betting odds, historic trends and other inputs to make their (usually wrong) political predictions. We all remember that “experts” said Hillary Clinton would win the presidency in 2016 (they gave her a 92% chance on the morning of the election), and that the UK would vote to “remain” in the EU

KRUGMAN SHOWS HE KNOWS LITTLE ABOUT ECONOMICS AND LESS ABOUT FINANCE

We already knew that Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman knows almost nothing about economics. Now, we see from this article that he knows nothing about banking either. Krugman claims that the repeal of Glass-Steagall and the actions of banks in general were not the cause of the 2008 financial crisis. The conventional wisdom is that Lehman Brothers,
