Banker Gold Price Suppression Currency Manipulations Have Persisted for 50 years
This 1967 meeting of the FOMC nearly 46 years ago is clear and indisputable evidence of gold price suppression and currency manipulation of the world's "free" and "open" market exchanges.  This criminal cabal has certainly built up their mechanisms since this time to conceal their sinister scheme from issuing dishonest money. It's blatant now and all of "in your face" is their behavioral response to inquiry. Damn the torpedoes, full steam ahead. If you find this too cumbersome to read, the Fed

The origin of cycles
It was Karl Marx who was among the first believers that cyclical behaviour was endemic to free markets.He lived through a time when there was a regular cycle of boom and bust, with phases of economic expansion followed by contraction. Workers were employed and then unemployed, and the only way this could be stopped, in Marxian economics, was for the workers to acquire the means of production, or more correctly, the state to do so on their behalf.Other economists, such as Jevons and Wicksell, rec

Good things happen to governments that do this, and bad things happen to those that don’t. “Stable Money” means: money that is stable in value. The traditional way to accomplish this is to link currencies to g

When will the next credit crisis occur
The timing of any credit crisis is set by the rate at which the credit cycle progresses. People don’t think in terms of the credit cycle, wrongly believing it is a business cycle. The distinction is important, because a business cycle by its name suggests it emanates from business. In other words, the cycle of growth and recessions is due to instability in the private sector and this is generally believed by state planners and central bankers.This is untrue, because cycles of business activity h

'Buy Gold!' says the Bank of England
Failing that, ask its pension fund for a few index-linked Gilts... The BANK of ENGLAND announced its latest policy decision in London today, writes Adrian Ash at BullionVault. In effect it told UK investors and savers to buy gold. Because gold tends to rise when interest rates fail to rise faster than the cost of living.

Your Weight in Gold
The traditional phrase “worth your weight in gold” has been used since Roman times, and is a well-known saying signifying that someone or something is very valuable, helpful, or to be treasured. But taken literally, what ‘value’ would a person be worth if they were worth their own weight in gold? For a given gold price, the answer not surprisingly depends on the person’s weight, so a more suitable and relevant question might be what value would an average person be worth if they were worth their

Gold takes one on the chin, but it wasn’t the only one
LATE REPORT Gold took one on the chin today, but nothing like the stiff uppercut delivered to stocks and bonds.  Gold finished down $17 today at $1331.39 and shedding 1.3% off the price. Silver got pummeled as well finishing the day at $16.57, down 63¢.  Stocks finished down 665 on the day – a 2.6% shellacking.  Bonds did not fare any better with the 10-year Treasury finishing at a 2.839% yield. All in all, investors find themselves coping with the combined effects of a new surge in government d

Unsound money is crucifying pensions
Deficits are mounting in pension obligations. It is a global problem over which pension trustees are helpless. It is also a problem that’s brushed under the carpet, with prospective and current pensioners generally unaware of the threat to their retirement. Investors in companies with defined benefit schemes, schemes which promise an inflation-adjusted entitlement based on final salary, generally ignore this important issue, as do most stock market analysts. Analysts know the deficits are there,

US Gold Reserves, Of Immense Interest to Russia and China
Recently, Russian television network RT extensively quoted me in a series of articles about the US Government’s gold reserves. The RT articles, published on the RT.com website, were based on a series of questions RT put to me about various aspects of the official US gold reserves. These gold reserves are held by the US Treasury, mostly in the custody of the US Mint. The US Mint is a branch of the US Treasury. The first of these articles, published by RT on 30 December 2017, is titled “US gold of

The truth about trade
The one subject, which became a headline issue last year, and even divides experts is trade. It will become increasingly important in 2018 as the US develops her trade policy, particularly with respect to China, and as the UK negotiates her Brexit terms with the EU. Ignorance dominates this subject. Surely, people say, industry should be protected from unfair trade practices, such as goods manufactured in foreign sweat-shops, or unfair dumping of commodities, such as steel. If President Trump ca
