God, Gold and Guns
We’ve been looking into One Nation Under Gold (2017), by James Ledbetter. October 2, 2017: One Nation Under Gold (2017), by James Ledbetter October 14, 2017: One Nation Under Gold #2: The Silliness of the Bretton Woods Years Now, we will follow Ledbetter’s account of the end of Bretton Woods in 1971, up to the present. The account of the 1971 devaluation was, following the pattern of this book, long on details but short on insight. It seemed to people at the time that they “had no choice,” that

Central banks exist for a single reason - to inflate the supply of paper currency. They are a currency-creating and currency-inflating institution. This serves two interest groups in the main. One is the fractional-reserve banks that they regulate. The other is the government that created them. For the banks, the alternative to a central bank is to be subject to the forces of mark

Cheering for Bitcoin
We have published many articles, arguing that bitcoin is unsound. Yet for all those arguments, there is a bright side to bitcoin. It is exciting to see that there is an audience of millions of people—mainstream people, not wild-eyed End-The-Fed gold bug preppers who keep their gold hoards with their stockpiles of ammo—who are looking for an alternative to the Fed’s failing fiat currency. Or if not looking actively, at least receptive to it. We believe that the most important force contributing t

All Out Political, Economic, And Financial Warfare!
Like it or not, we are living through a major inflectionary point in human history; on more fronts; with more lasting, and dramatic changes than any before it.  Yes, there have been hundreds of humanity-altering wars throughout history.  However, never have so many people been impacted by current events; as, for example, there are 7.4 billion people today, compared to 2.3 billion at World War II’s onset.  And while WWII shaped the culture, economic and monetary, and physical borders for generati

  End of Fed Independence! House Financial Services Committee Sends Warning Letter to Yellen “This is Unaccep...
The Trump team wasted no time in telling Fed Chair Janet Yellen what is and is not acceptable. Patrick McHenry, the vice chairman of the House financial services committee, sent Yellen a letter of admonishment regarding international negotiations the Fed conducts in secret, with no oversight. One line stands out: “This is unacceptable”. The preceding paragraph tears into the Fed’s secret negotiations with foreign bureaucrats, “without transparency, accountability, or the authority to do so.” M

Audit the Fed Bill Coming Up, Trump Will Likely Sign
Last year, Senate democrats twice defeated House sponsored legislation to audit the Fed. It’s likely to pass this year,  and Trump is likely to sign. The Hill reports ‘Audit the Fed’ Bill Gets New Push Under Trump. Controversial legislation to subject the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy powers to outside scrutiny is getting new life in Washington. Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) have re-introduced legislation to “Audit the Fed,” after a similar effort stalled in the las

New Year's Resolutions for Donald Trump and Congress
In the spirit of New Year's, here are four resolutions for president-elect Trump and Congress that will enable them to really make America great again: 1) Audit the Fed....and then end it: The Federal Reserve Bank's easy money polices have eroded the American people's standard of living and facilitated the growth of the welfare-warfare state. The Fed is also responsible for the growth in income inequality. Yet Congress still refuses to pass Audit the Fed, much less end it. During the c

Will Trump End the Fed
For many months, the price of gold has been driven by the Fed’s moves and the prospects of interest rate hikes. Therefore, the natural question after the Trump victory is how his presidency will affect the Fed’s actions and, thus, the gold market. There are several ways the Trump’s presidency may influence the U.S. central bank. First, the new president could replace Fed Chair Janet Yellen (as well as Fed Vice Chair Stanley Fischer), as he stated once that he “would be more inclined to put other

  To Really 'Make America Great Again,' End the Fed!
Former Dallas Federal Reserve Bank President Richard Fisher recently gave a speech identifying the Federal Reserve's easy money/low interest rate policies as a source of the public anger that propelled Donald Trump into the White House. Mr. Fisher is certainly correct that the Fed's policies have "skewered" the middle class. However, the problem is not specific Fed policies, but the very system of fiat currency managed by a secretive central bank. Federal Reserve-generated increases in

What Will It Be America The First, Second, Or Third World
On Thursday morning, I wrote “global regime change,” regarding the sweeping political and social revolution the world is undergoing, the result of four-plus decades of cancerous economic decay, historic wealth disparity, and the relentless surge of the cost of living caused by four-plus decades of unprecedented money printing.  No matter where you look, people are dispirited, demoralized, and angry; which is why, in the last two years alone, historic votes, referendums, or other forms of regime

The Imminent End of an Obsession with Idiocy
There will come a time when I’m not waking up at 4:30 am on Saturday mornings – in late August, when the rest of the world is enjoying the “summer doldrums,” no less – to write about the random musings of a handful of unelected, conniving thieves; the appalling, painfully obvious market manipulations that go along with them; and the combination of criminal negligence, collusive fraud, and outright stupidity that goes for the “reporting” of such blatantly fraudulent and collusive, actions – as if

Cartel on the Precipice
I have watched every tick of the Precious Metals market for 14½ years, since the fateful day in May 2002 when I bought my first 100 shares of Newmont Mining, en route to putting essentially all of my liquid assets into the sector.  Frankly, the 1% position I have taken in Bitcoin is as exciting as any development in my investment career – as until Bitcoin, I have not come across any asset class since 2002 worth investing in.  And by investing, I mean the classical definition of such, not today’s

The “call Of A Lifetime”
It’s Wednesday morning – and let’s start with a little background, as we head into yet another episode of, LOL, the Fed’s “most important meeting ever.”  To that end, recall that it was just seven weeks ago, on April 27th, when Yellen and Co published one of their most dovish statements yet, catalyzing a gold surge from $1,235 to $1,300 in less than a week’s time.  This forced the Cartel – er, the COMEX “Commercials” – to extend their already near-record naked short positions further; which unfo

Book Review:
In a time when it seems like central banks call the tune that everyone has to dance to, a book named Who Needs the Fed? (2016) is a deliberate provocation. Like his earlier book Popular Economics (2015), John Tamny takes on the potentially arcane issues of money, credit and banking with the help of contemporary tales of business adventure. The result is both accessible and sophisticated – more sophisticated than most academic work, whose obtuse mathematics actually amount to clumsy oversimplific

How Would Milton Friedman Have Reacted to the Financial Crisis
The repercussions of the financial crisis that began in 2007 are still being felt. In the United States and in Europe, the crisis led to the strong resurgence of a theory, Keynesianism, that seemed to have been discredited since the 1970s. One of the main opponents of John Maynard Keynes?s statist and interventionist conception of the economy, Milton Friedman, who died in 2006, would have turned 100 this year. Friedman was a fierce defender of the free market and is considered

Do We Need the Fed
Stocks rose Wednesday following the Federal Reserve's announcement of the first interest rate increase since 2006. However, stocks fell just two days later. One reason the positive reaction to the Fed's announcement did not last long is that the Fed seems to lack confidence in the economy and is unsure what policies it should adopt in the future. At her Wednesday press conference, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen acknowledged continuing "cyclical weakness" in the job market. She also

Let's Meet the (Wildly Diverse) Gold Standard Family
Anyone who investigates the topic of gold-based money for a little while soon runs into an incredible diversity of opinion, accompanied by various proposals that are so divergent as to seem to be coming from different planets. Along with this comes a bit of personal backbiting as each one likes to claim his solution is best. Many of the proposals are rather contrary to the actual practice of gold standard systems worldwide, during the period 1800-1971. Others follow that example closely. Let’s

Was the Fed ever a good idea
There’s an idea at root among some libertarians that the Federal Reserve was originally a sound institution that has grown corrupt.As a bankers’ bank, it’s fine, they believe, but not as the monster it’s grown to be.If only we could go back to the Fed’s founding charter, all would be well. I’m thinking of two well-known financial analysts who are unsurpassed in their analytical brilliance and knowledge of markets, who rightly regard the bureaucratic FOMC as the father of bubbles, busts, stagn
