Travis, Gold and Nikkei

This is commentator Travis:

Dear Market Monetarists,

Could someone please post a chart comparing gold prices to the Nikkei over the past eight months? This represents a huge defeat for those who claim that inflationary policies are enormously dangerous!

Here you go Travis…

Nikkei Gold

  1. Some call it the decline of Chinese growth = gold collapse
    and the rise of mercantilism = Abeconomics
    But many needs their own myopic view on economics.
    I prefer it relatively balanced

    The media seem set on looking fools in this post Great Recession world. A bit silly to think an inflationary policy causes a drop in …gold. More likely household sector developments in Turkey and India and the poor Chinese GDP report. I also find it hard to believe that the Japanese are competing on price much. Seems to me that most of their high margin export goods are quite price-inelastic. I know i’d have been willing to pay a good deal more for my Honda, it it would save me having to drive a GM…

    What is gold worth?

    That metric is calculated deep in the brain stem, where you find fear, greed and ritualistic genuflection to Au.

    But gold looks dead for now
