Dungeons of gold: Sex, booze, and barbecue in underground mine cities
Millions of rands in sex, food, and alcohol are being traded in secret underground cities linked to illegal mining activities in small towns such as Welkom in the Free State. The town, once a hive of legal mining activity, was the site of one of the worst illegal mining disasters South Africa has seen when at least 34 "zama zamas" were killed in an underground explosion last week.

Will Gold or Silver Pay the Higher Interest Rate? - Keith Weiner
This question is no longer moot. As the world moves inexorably towards the use of metallic money, interest on gold and silver will return with it. This raises an important question. Which interest rate will be higher? The Wrong Approach It’s instructive to explore a wrong, but popular, view. I call it the purchasing power paradigm. In this view, the value of money—its purchasing power —is 1/P (where P is the price level). Inflation is the rate of decline of purchasing power. This view treat

White House considers ‘art of compromise’ to avoid shutdown
CNN/Jeremy Diamond/04-25-17 Less than a week before the federal government is scheduled to shut down absent a funding bill, the White House’s battle lines remain fuzzy. …Hours after Trump touted the importance of building a wall, a White House official signaled later Monday that the President won’t insist on that funding in a spending bill to keep the government running past Friday. The official said that even some funding for “border security” could satisfy the President at this point, with the

Gold Bullion Erases Post- Election Fall as Trump Wrong on Dollar – Daily Prophet  Robert Burgess of Bloomberg Prophets President Donald Trump sent currency markets into a tizzy late Wednesday when he signaled his preference for a weaker dollar. “I think our dollar is getting too strong, and partially that’s my fault because people have confidence in me,” Trump told the Wall Street Journal.

Secret recording implicates Bank of England in LIBOR rigging
A secret recording that implicates the Bank of England in Libor rigging has been uncovered by BBC Panorama. The 2008 recording adds to evidence the central bank repeatedly pressured commercial banks during the financial crisis to push their Libor rates down. Libor is the rate at which banks lend to each other, setting a benchmark for mortgages and loans for ordinary customers. The Bank of England said Libor was not regulated in the UK at the time. The recording calls into question evidence given

Secret Recording Implicates Bank of England in Libor Rigging
In the financial crisis, LIBOR rates soared due to payment uncertainty (recall Bear Stearns, Lehman, etc). Banks lowballed their borrowing rates so as to make their financial conditions look better than they were. LIBOR stands for London Interbank Offered Rate, the average of interest rates estimated by each of the leading banks in London that it would be charged were it to borrow overnight from other banks. In June 2012, multiple criminal settlements by Barclays Bank revealed significant fraud

An "Investment" Even More Ludicrous Than Government Bonds
By Chris at www.CapitalistExploits.at "What about investing in hard assets like diamonds?" I get asked this sometimes so figured I'd cover it here. I wrote the below piece some years ago and it answers the question about whether diamonds should be treated as a store of value in an investor's portfolio. The word monopoly has its roots in the Greek words monos (single) and polein (to sell). It first appeared in Aristotle's Politics where Aristotle describes how in Greece in the 6th century B
