Gold Economics

Monetary Metals® takes an unconventional approach to economics and precious metal market analysis. At the core of our thinking is the idea of incentives. Largely unnoticed by most people, incentives motivate people to act – be it the entrepreneur who sees an opportunity to profit from meeting the needs of others, or the arbitrageur who keeps markets aligned and efficient by profiting from divergences in prices.

We have several different content offerings for the interested reader.

Our Supply and Demand Report is a timely newsletter that chronicles the changing dynamics of the fundamental and speculative forces driving gold and silver prices. Our view is that analysis of price spreads can often reveal more about the supply and demand balance (or imbalance) in the market than looking at just the price movements themselves.

The Gold Exchange Report and Podcast, where we use timeless economic principles to untangle market and policy complexities so you can truly understand the present, and be better prepared for the future. This is where our unique approach to economics, and Keith’s groundbreaking research, shine through in practical ways for investors.

Our blog is great resource for short posts on contemporary economic and precious metal market issues.

For more detailed discussion of our unique economic views, such as the concept of yield purchasing power, the theory of interest and prices in paper currency, bitcoin, and others, check out our Research Page.

Lastly, our YouTube channel contains hundreds of interviews, discussions, and presentations given by Keith and others on everything you’ll find here in video form. Check it out below:
