I look forward to the day when I have some exciting comedy news to post on here. Like a TV or radio commission. But, for now, here are links to my latest Moneyweek articles and my latest podcasts.
- An interesting interview with Gordon Blankstein of Andover Ventures
- Gold forecaster Julian Philips forecasts $2,000 gold by Christmas.
- Gold might look frothy – but it’s not a bubble
- and When will gold’s latest surge end?
The latter contained this paragraph, which I was pleased with:
But this week, just as gold made new records, the Bank Of Japan took fiscal insanity to a whole new level, slashing interest rates to 0% and then announcing a newly printed pool of ¥5trn (c. £40bn) to buy all sorts of assets – Japanese government bonds, commercial paper, asset-backed commercial paper, corporate bonds, exchange-traded funds and Japanese real estate investment trusts. I have some old junk that I was planning to sell on eBay. I’m wondering if I should just cut out the middle man and contact the Bank of Japan directly.
