Harry Shultz's Last Newsletter: We Are Way Worse Than The 1930's

In his last issue, Schultz does not attempt a grand summing-up. But he does observe this:
“Roughly speaking, the mess we are in is the worst since 17th century financial collapse. Comparisons with the 1930’s are ludicrous. We’ve gone far beyond that. And, alas, the courage & political will to recognize the mess & act wisely to reverse gears, is absent in U.S. leadership, where the problems were hatched & where the rot is by far the deepest.”
He writes favorably of investment advice given in a recent interview by former Reagan Office of Management and Budget Director David Stockman:

“Stockman replied (to my huge surprise, coming from a former top government official) ‘Get some gold, beans, water, anything that Bernanke can’t destroy. Ron Paul is right. We’re entering a global monetary conflagration. If a sell-off of U.S. bonds starts, it will be an Armageddon.’”

About gold, Schultz retains his long-term bullishness. He quotes the respected Seeking Alpha service:

“For gold to match the growth in US M1, M2, public debt & budget deficit, gold will have to reach $1,800, $2,400, $7,800 & $13,200, respectively. While I can’t imagine gold going to $13k, these numbers tell me that calling gold a bubble is a bit premature. In my view, money supply, public debt & the budget deficit are in a bubble, not gold, not yet.”
Schultz’s comment: “Wake me up at $2,400 gold.”
