Credit: Daniel McNatt | Lantern ReporterThe Ohio State women’s basketball team opened the season Tuesday night against No. 22  South Florida, falling in defeat with a final score of 71-47.South Florida freshman point guard Sydney Harvey, senior wing Kitija Laksa and freshman center Beatriz Jordao were constant thorns in the side of the Buckeyes Tuesday night, pouring in 50 of the 71 points with a combined 15-17 on free throw attempts, signifying the Buckeyes jitters and possible lack of discipline on defense to begin the season. The Buckeyes committed over 20 fouls in the game, some on calls that left the players visibly frustrated, but redshirt senior guard Carly Santoro recognizes the importance of fighting through those moments. “Once you get in foul trouble it takes away from your aggressiveness,” Santoro said. “That’s what was happening. But we have to learn how to play through that because not every game are we gonna be able to go out there and play as physical as we want. We have to learn how the refs are calling that game and go out and adjust accordingly.” Through the first four minutes, the Buckeyes looked frustrated during a sequence which seemingly needed to be saved with a timeout, as the team committed four fouls along with a travel call on freshman forward Dorka Juhasz. The frustrations continued as the Buckeyes went into the second quarter trailing 21-11. Ohio State head coach Kevin McGuff’s team continued to fight through the second quarter during a stretch lasting until 2:11 left in the half in which the Bulls offense didn’t score a FG for over five minutes, but the Buckeyes shot 25.8 percent from the field in the first half compared to 33.3 percent from USF.Ohio State went into the half down 37-19, its largest deficit of the night to that point. Juhasz earned a double-double in her first collegiate game with a 10-point, 10-rebound effort in the opener, but said she sees more room for improvement. “I think everybody was nervous. It was the first game,” Juhasz said. “It’s like a whole new team. So I think it was just about that, and sometimes our concentration was not really on point, but I feel that like we can really improve on that.”The Buckeyes went on a 6-0 scoring run in the fourth quarter to cut the deficit to 63-43. In the end, the Bulls handedly defeated the Buckeyes by 24 points. Ohio State faces Detroit Mercy on Friday at 7 p.m read more

  • Nick Giambruno here filling in for Dan Steinhart

    first_imgNick Giambruno here, filling in for Dan Steinhart. Some of you may know me as the editor of Doug Casey’s International Man.Getting right into it, today we have an exclusive, thought-provoking piece that will likely challenge some of your deepest-held assumptions on a topic of much debate: money printing and inflation.Before I poke this hornet’s nest, however, let me first reveal why I am doing this. I believe – as do all of us at Casey Research – that it is critically important to listen to well-reasoned arguments that may not conform to one’s beliefs. Doing so serves as a sort of “sanity check,” helping one to reassess and maybe adjust one’s ideas. It helps us form stronger opinions and arguments. And most important, it helps us make better investment decisions.After all, you can’t be sure your long-held convictions are still valid unless you regularly challenge them.One such deeply held assumption that is shared by many Casey Researchers (including myself) and readers is that the massive creation of new currency units by the Fed will eventually cause significant price inflation.Perhaps there is nobody better to challenge that assumption than Dr. Lacy Hunt, someone you would normally be more comfortable agreeing with.In case you are not familiar with Dr. Hunt, he is an author and internationally known economist who has previously worked as a senior economist for the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. His work has appeared in Barron’s, the Wall Street Journal, and the New York Times, among other publications; and he is often a favorite speaker at Casey Research conferences.Speaking of Casey conferences, you won’t want to miss his appearance, along with Dr. Ron Paul and many other exciting speakers, at the upcoming Casey Summit in Tucson, Arizona from October 4-6. Get all the details and register today.To set the stage for the article that Dr. Hunt has written for us, I would highly suggest you first read Hoisington’s Quarterly Review and Outlook for the first quarter of 2013 to get a more comprehensive understanding of his arguments. You will also get some background and down-to-earth explanations of some of the must-know terms (M2, the monetary base, the money multiplier, velocity, etc.), which are necessary to be able to better understand the debate around the Fed and inflation.The piece took me by surprise with this opening quote:“The Federal Reserve is printing money.” No statement could be less truthful. The Federal Reserve (Fed) is not, and has not been, “printing money.”What?!That statement, coming from a very smart guy like Dr. Hunt, took me by surprise and intrigued me to see how he logically came to his conclusions.He goes on to explain, using data to back up his argument, why he thinks it is a broad misconception that the Fed is “printing money” and that the Fed doesn’t really have control over growth in the money supply.There is no disagreement that the Fed controls the monetary base, though it is important to distinguish the difference between the “monetary base” and the “money supply.”The monetary base increases when the Fed buys government securities (like in the various QE programs). This process creates currency units in the form of bank reserves that have the potential to be loaned out. However, this does not translate into an increase in the money supply until these new bank reserves are actually loaned out.One of the main points of this debate centers on whether or not the Fed controls the money supply.Dr. Hunt’s camp would claim that the Fed does not control the money supply, but rather banks and their customers control it since their actions are the ones that determine whether the new bank reserves created by the Fed get loaned out and added to the money supply.Others would argue that the Fed does indeed control the money supply. They point to the fact that since the beginning of the financial crisis, the Fed has taken steps to pay relatively higher interest on the reserves that commercial banks keep on deposit with the Fed. Remember, it is these reserves that are created when the Fed buys government securities, but which don’t become part of the money supply until they are loaned out by the banks. By paying the banks a relatively high interest rate on these reserves, it is argued that the Fed is in fact controlling the money supply. This is because the Fed is providing an incentive to the banks (by offering them relatively high interest rates) to keep this cash on reserve and not loan it out – because if loaned out, it would cause an increase in the money supply.Both sides have merit and present logical cases.It is likely that many readers (like myself) will find their deeply held views on the Fed and inflation challenged by Dr. Hunt’s well-reasoned arguments. With that, I will turn you over to Lacy.Hope you enjoy the article. Dan will be back next week!Nick GiambrunoEditor, International Manlast_img read more

  • Dear Reader Bottom fishing is one of my favorit

    first_imgDear Reader, Bottom fishing is one of my favorite things to do. I’m not talking scuba diving, but picking stocks in great companies when no one else is buying and prices are way down near the bottom. But note the word “near”—no one can time market tops and bottoms reliably, not even Casey or Buffett. “Everyone knows” this is so, so there’s no need to belabor the point, but Jeff Clark has a look at the situation from a different angle in his brief but important article below, making a solid case for why waiting for a bottom-fishing opportunity for buying gold would be a mistake. It will only take a moment to read but is well worth the effort, especially with the disappointment over the failed Swiss gold referendum potentially bringing great buying opportunities this week.
