  The Story of Gold Money, Past, Present and Future, by Edwin Walter Kemmerer
There aren’t a lot of good books about the gold standard — the monetary system of the world until 1971 — after WWI. There aren’t a lot before WWI either, but it starts to get pretty bad after 1920. Ralph Hawtrey’s books have some merits, but they also have too many errors to serve as a definitive source. Gold and the Gold Standard: The Story of Gold Money, Past, Present and Future (1944) is something of an exception to this pattern. Edwin Walter Kemmerer was a professor at Princeton. Wikipedia o

Time to Get Back into Gold Stocks
Money manager Adrian Day updates developments and guidance from three major gold companies. Gold stocks have been on their not-untypical first-quarter ride, rallying 33% from the mid-December lows before giving back most of that move. The decline in mining circles is known as the "PDAC curse," since it occurs right before the world's largest mining conference in Toronto. This year's show, which attracted over 24,000 attendees, up a little from last year

TSXV: From a PDAC Hangover to Sell in May and Go Away
A Monday Morning Musing from Mickey the Mercenary GeologistIn two previous missives, I documented the record and seasonality of the Toronto Venture Exchange (TSXV) since its inception in late 2001 (Mercenary Musing, June 13, 2016; Mercenary Musing, November 7, 2016). In the first musing, we demonstrated that there is strong seasonality to the TSXV Index throughout the year.

“Unimaginable Radiation Levels”: Robot Probing Melted Core at Fukushima Shuts Down Under Pressure
Perhaps mankind was genius enough to unlock the secrets of nuclear physics and atomic energy, but not wise enough to know how to manage the lasting consequences of its awesome power. While TEPCO and relevant authorities continue a laughable and dangerous “sweeping under the carpet” routine to hide the effects from the public, it becomes increasingly clear that there is likely no way to stop what is

MGX Shareholders Ride a Rollercoaster

This article was written by Michael Snyder and originally published at his End of the American Dream blog. Editor’s Comment: The gift that keeps on giving. An endless ocean of radioactive water, spilling into the Pacific Ocean at an astounding rate, every single day. The effects of this nuclear waste, particularly in the form of cesium 137 and strontium 90, are epidemic – they are being hidden by a refusal to report on the disaster, and by the diffuse global web of biology.  Though consumers of
