Fed Taper and Commodities with Don Coxe

“With cumulative growth in Asia well above 4% and the Eurozone finally emerging from deep recession, commodities have resumed their long-term upward trend”  ~Don Coxe

By Catherine Austin Fitts

This week on The Solari Report, I will be speaking with Don Coxe of Coxe Advisors about the commodities market, including what the impact of the Fed’s taper of its Quantitative Easing program might be.

Coxe Advisors serves as advisor to a series of commodities funds in the United States, Canada and internationally. Coxe’s conference call briefings have become so popular through word of mouth that he is now launching a subscription service.

I started listening and following Don’s work years ago. Don understands commodities and markets from the boots on the ground of a farmer, a miner or an operator as well as from the point of view of hot money shifting billions of dollars and currency between fixed income, equities and commodities around the globe. His breadth of knowledge is remarkable – it’s the reason he is often referred to as “a Renaissance man.”

In Money & Markets this week I will discuss the latest developments in geopolitics and markets, so please post your questions on the blog.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review Music Makes a City, a PBS documentary about the significant contribution of the Louisville orchestra to the life and economic development of Louisville, Kentucky.

  1. Perhaps too late for the interview. How does the farm bil commodity subsidy affect the commodity market in broad terms?

    The recently passed 2014 Farm Bill is a mixed bag. The five year bill is worth nearly $1 trillion and includes funds for programs like nutrition, farmer insurances, agricultural research, commodity subsidies and conservation. 79% of the Bill funds the SNAP Program (food stamps and nutrition education) and of the 21% “other” part of the pie, 68% funds commodities and crop insurance.
