The Hungarian Connection
Gold is the most misunderstood metal in human history, because of the economists' failure to distinguish between its dynamic and static aspects in representing values. Economists have blithely assumed all along that the value of gold is the same whether it flows freely from one hand to the next, or whether the movement of gold is obstructed, in the worst case arrested, by the government (soon to be aped by banks and individuals

Watershed Moment – Spain to Send in Troops on Cruise Liners: Catalonia President Says Vote Will Go On
Bloomberg reports Spain Hires Cruise Liner to House Police in Rebel Catalonia. Catalonia president Carles Puigdemont responded that the Spanish government actions are ‘beyond the limits of a respectable democracy’ but vote will go ahead. Will it? Spain has discreetly hired ferries to be moored in the Port of Barcelona as temporary housing for possibly thousands of police specially deployed to keep order in rebel Catalonia and help suppress an illegal independence referendum. The aim is to amas

Actions of A Bully Child or Dying Empire: Sanctions and Threats - Rory Hall
As the Western world continues to slide into the dust bin of history, it is not going without a fight. As with any “wounded animal”, once the reality of pain permeates the body, it typically lashes out at anything or anyone within arms' reach. In the case of the Western world, arms'-reach is merely the push of a button and everything begins to change. What Europe has already come to realize is these meaningless Russian and Iranian sanctions only hurt western manufacturing and have minimal

"The conventional wisdom seems to be that the problems of the euro zone are, as economist Martin Feldstein once put it, 'the inevitable consequence of imposing a single currency on a very heterogeneous group of countries.' What this commentary gets wrong, however, is that single currencies are never the product of debates about optimal economic solutions. Instead, currencies like the U.S. dollar itself are the result of political battles, where motivated actors try to centralize power.  This h

  Fiat Money – Eastern Europe 
Most commentators on how Fiat money always reverts to its intrinsic value, (i.e. approaching the value of the paper it is printed on, or near zero), quote the german Papiermark, (observe the pictured 5 trillion bank note in this link) as a classic example of this phenomenon.

Guaranteed Income and Living Wage Schemes Cannot Possibly Work
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg Supports Universal Basic Income. In its basic form, universal basic income means “everyone gets a paycheck, whether they have a job or not.” Many expect even more. They want a guaranteed “living wage”. Useless Trials Such schemes cannot possibly work. But that does not stop fools from trying. For example, Finland is giving out a guaranteed monthly income of nearly $600 to 2,000 citizens. Canada’s province of Ontario, which includes Toronto, started a pilot prog

Venezuela Has Officially Abandoned The Petrodollar – Does This Make War With Venezuela More Likely?
This report was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Venezuela is the 11th largest oil producing country in the entire world, and it has just announced that it is going to stop using the petrodollar. Most Americans don’t even know what the petrodollar is, but for those of you that do understand what I am talking about, this should send a chill up your spine. The petrodollar is one of the key pillars of the global financial system, and it allows us to live a far higher

UNPREDEDENTED GLOBAL RISK – NO ONE CARES
“Risk involves the chance an investment’s actual return will differ from the expected return. Risk includes the possibility of losing some or all of the original investment.” (Investopedia) So there we have it. Risk means that you can lose part or all of the investment. Normally valuations take risk into account.

Outlook for the dollar price of gold
Now that gold has become overbought on Comex, the price is vulnerable to being trashed, yet again, by the too-big-to-fail banks. It is a familiar operation in gold futures markets, where speculators buying contracts protect themselves with stop-losses.All the TBTF banks need is a pause in the speculator’s buying and a little good news (bad for gold). Ideally, the active contract will be running into maturity, so the speculators are forced to put up or shut up: in other words, sell the contract,

The Suncor Story
This article is largely the text of a presentation I recently gave for the launch of my latest book.  The well-attended event took place at the Glenbow Museum in Calgary.  The image above is a map of Alberta’s oil sands, and its purpose is to orient you geographically to the oil sands themselves. I have registered the book as a Canada 150 publication, so it sports that logo. In global terms, the oil sands are the world’s second-largest petroleum resource. Only Venezuela has more bitumen

Gold, Blockchain Technology and Belt Road Initiative - Rory Hall
Most people reading this are well aware of the fact that China and Russia have been acquiring gold for the past several years. Russia just added another 12.44 tons, in July 2017, to their continually growing gold hoard. China, on the other hand, has not added a single ounce of gold to their “official” gold hoard since October 2016. China, instead, has been adding gold mines to their increasing resources hoard. Why add a few tons each month to your gold hoard when you can acquire productive
