Japan may be bailing out Europe in secret, economist Mosler says
9:13p ET Monday, February 27, 2012
Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
If GATA has proved anything, apart from the rigging of the gold market by Western central banks for almost 80 years, it is that those central banks often lie and conceal, that even when they tell the truth it's far from the whole truth, and that their surreptitious manipulations conducted through intermediaries facilitates insider trading. So it's delightful when even a respected liberal economist like Warren Mosler implicitly comes to a similar conclusion, as he did today with his speculation that Japan is underwriting the bailout of Europe.
Mosler writes: "I'm now thinking it may have been the Bank of Japan giving the nod to its member banks to buy euro-member debt denominated in euro and to keep the foreign exchange risk on their books, with the assurance that government policy would keep the yen weak and guarantee the banks an FX profit."
Just three weeks ago GATA noted the disclosure by Dow Jones Newswires that the Bank of Japan was intervening in the currency market surreptitiously, through intermediary commercial banks, to devalue the yen:
That fits very well with Mosler's speculation, which can be found at his blog here:

Free Month Subscription to Market Force Analysis for GATA Supporters
Market Force Analysis is a unique, patent-pending approach to commodity market analysis. An algorithm has been developed to extract supply and demand weightings from futures market data. The difference between supply and demand is the market imbalance that is called "market force," so named because it is what drives price. It brings clarity to past market action and predicts market trends. Because it is derived from accurate futures market data it is not subject to the errors inherent in macro-level estimates of supply and demand.

A Rare Opportunity with Collectible Gold Coins
Whose Premiums Are Far Below Normal
Sovereign debt problems in the United States as well as Europe will worsen this year. The mainstream financial media may never report about the likely inflationary consequences of bailouts and "quantitative easing," nor are they likely ever to recommend tangible assets for financial protection. But at Swiss America Trading Corp. we believe that it is no longer a luxury to own gold and silver coins but rather a necessity.
At the moment the public is showing little interest in Double Eagle U.S. $20 gold coins, so the price premiums above the intrinsic melt values (.9675 ounce of gold in each coin) are historically low. The ratio of price to bullion content for these coins has been 2:1 but today it is only about 1.25:1.
This is a real opportunity. So give us a call or e-mail and we will be glad to discuss the potential of these coins and how to use a ratio strategy to increase your gold ounces without money out of pocket.
In the January edition of his Early Warning Report, Richard Maybury writes: "As they are inherently in very limited supply, I believe that high-quality numismatics will become tulips, eventually rising a thousand percent or more in real terms, when money velocity goes into mid-second stage. In late stage, who knows -- 2,000 percent? 3,000?"
