Former Fed Chairman Greenspan Makes Startling Admission

I had lunch with former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan during the New Orleans Investment Conference.

‚??The Federal Reserve is not independent!‚?Ě — Alan Greenspan

During the weekend, I spoke at the 40th anniversary of the New Orleans Investment Conference and had a great time meeting up with subscribers and signing dozens of copies of ‚??The Maxims of Wall Street‚?Ě as gift books. I even took several subscribers out to dinner at Commander‚??s Palace.

The New Orleans Investment Conference is largely a gold bug convention, with representatives from dozens of small mining companies exhibiting. It has been a tough couple of years. Precious metals topped out in late 2011, when subscribers to my investment newsletter, Forecasts & Strategies, took profits on our gold and silver exchange-traded funds (ETFs). After that, the mining business has been a disaster.

The fear of rising rates was on the minds of the attendees and speakers. Rising rates mean a strong dollar and more weakness in commodity prices.
