James CorbettThe late Bob Chapman was known as the International Forecaster, and the new International Forecaster is James Corbett, as seen on theinternationalforecaster.com.

Corbett will be the weekly Monday regular guest on Dr. Stan Monteith’s Radio Liberty show as Bob Chapman had been, and his debut episode was July 30, 2012.

He established his independence from Bob early on, by differing with him over gold and silver certificates versus physical gold and silver, in favouring physical gold and silver. He also disclosed that he is a Canadian living in Japan, which definitely gives him an international perspective.

Bob Chapman, known for his 30 to 40-page twice-weekly International Forecaster publication and 25 hours of radio interviews a week, was uncharacteristically curt in his responses to questions posed by Erskine on Erskine Overnight on April 21, 2012.

He recently cut back his weekly evening appearance on Radio Liberty with Dr. Stan Monteith, and if this becomes a trend, his Erskine Overnight appearance could be next.

Starting around six minutes in, he was asked four questions in succession and gave a one-sentence response. His curt responses continued throughout the interview, leading Erskine to intentionally ask less open-ended questions, sometimes to no avail, with Erskine elaborating more as he was expecting Chapman to do in his responses.

Erskine, if Bob’s as quiet in next month’s interview, I’d be more than happy to replace him as a regular guest, as I have lots to say in response to your questions.

English: Ticker board of Tokyo stock exchange

On the January 21, 2012 episode of Erskine Overnight, Bob Chapman, The International Forecaster, said (at 38:42):

You need to have regulated markets, or they’re no good.

And he’s not talking about self-regulation — he’s talking about government regulation.

Despite that, groups like the Mises Institute — which hates government so much, they’re a government-sanctioned and regulated tax-exempt organization, and hates monetary inflation so much, they owned $4 million in U.S. Treasury Bonds in 2007 — and The Daily Bell, whose founder “continues to advise and consult to large international banks” —¬†continue to tell us there is no need for government regulation of markets.

A 250kg gold bar in the Toi gold mine

On the January 29, 2011 episode of The Secret Truth, The International Forecaster, Bob Chapman, said at 28:02:

All these people wanna avoid using gold and silver [for backing the currency]. The excuse is, that, the elitists own 20, 25, 30 percent of all the gold in the world, and my answer is, “so what?”

The so what is that the interests that control over 20 percent of the world’s gold supply would be wealthy simply based on the gold they currently possess, regardless of how lawfully they obtained it.

The Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution requires “just compensation” for the taking of private property for public use.

This would effectively result in a public transfer of gold, held in places like Fort Knox, from the U.S. government to the banks, which would likely demand payment in gold for their gold, instead of paper or computer receipts.

Clearly, such an option wouldn’t be feasible, since it would cost the U.S. government more gold than they’d get back, and as a result, the more than 20 percent of the world’s gold supply would continue to stay where it is.

Bob Chapman, The International Forecaster, was on Radio Liberty with Dr. Stan Monteith on September 27, 2010, and enunciated several important points that he had been developing on several shows over the preceding few weeks.

In the second segment, he called for tariffs, echoing what I had previously noted to him, that he and Paul Craig Roberts seem to be the only regular economic/financial writers who think tariffs on goods and services are a good thing.

In the third segment, he called for gold backing of the U.S. dollar by a minimum of 15% and said 25% would be even better. However, the U.S. dollar was backed by gold to the tune of 35% on deposits and 40% on notes from 1913-1933, as specified by the Federal Reserve Act, and that far higher level of gold backing by itself didn’t prevent the greatest depression in U.S. history.

In the fourth segment, he said the real money is in gold and silver shares, not gold and silver per se, and said that between 1978 and 1981, gold and silver shares went up 40 times the price of bullion, and 500% higher in the 1930s, but the key is knowing when to sell.

Kitco.com has been my primary resource for precious metal price quotes in the past few years.

However, yesterday, Bob Chapman, The International Forecaster, on his appearance on Radio Liberty with Dr. Stan Monteith, pointed out that Kitco’s numbers have been too frequently erroneous over the years.

At 50:24, he states:

Kitco’s notorious for putting out false information. I mean, you’ll go to another site, and you’ll get gold up $10, and you go to Kitco, and they got it up 50 cents. And that stays on for a long time — they don’t just change it. So, there’s no updating. And often, many times, I have found them to be untruthful about the things that they’ve put up.

On May 19, 2010, I noticed that their reported low for silver on their main http://www.kitco.com/market page was $16.67, when in reality, it hadn’t dropped much below $18.

Even today, it says silver’s low for the day was $18.11, but when you look at the daily chart, it shows it reached $18.05 several times.
