  Gold is about understanding the events that got us here and how they will unfold 
Brokers and traders will show you, "turn your gold into wealth", "put it to productive use, Trade It"! "Sell your gold and buy it again, many times". "Do this and find the value lost from your youth"! But I say, spend your time in the company of truly wealthy ones, see how they make gold lie very still! Know this now, the world will again, in your time, feel value in gold as never before. And that value will be as the "productive use of holding wealth thru the fire of change". "Yes, you can also walk in the footsteps of giants".

Fiat 33 
"Sir, I would say, "Old World Order" to return. To understand/explain better: A very easy way to view this "order", would be to simply say that the American Experience is reaching the end! As we know, world war two left Europe and the world economy destroyed. Many thinkers of that period thought that the world was about to enter a decades long depression as it worked to rebuild real assets lost in the conflict. It was this war that so impacted the idea of looking positively toward the fu

What is Freegold
Four years ago, Freegoldtube made a video titled "What is Freegold?" It evolved out of a series of events that began with the stunning collapse in the price of gold, from $1,600 down to $1,380 in first half of April, 2013. That collapse caused Jim Sinclair to email me asking about Freegold, which caused him to then make some confusing posts on his own blog about Freegold, which caused Ein Anderer to suggest that we were in "urgent need" of a short and simple explanation of Freegold. He persist

All Paper is STILL a short position on gold 
The gold derivatives pyramid is a vigorous free market creature. It cannot be put down with a simple declaration that the paper is no longer redeemable in gold, as governments did with currency. It is a short selling scheme that has become a trap from which few short sellers will escape

Happy New Year!
2018 Year of the POP If you'd like to read "Year of the POP", I'm sure you can guess where it can be found. ;D At the Speakeasy, we discuss things like bullion, bitcoin, bubbles, banking, and much much more. As I did in Nine, at the ninth anniversary of this blog, and back in May at the second anniversary of the new Speakeasy, I have started a new tradition of sharing samples from the Speakeasy here. For this one, I picked a fun post from back in August. It's about the coat-check room view o

Nine!
Wow, I can hardly believe it's been nine years. Where the heck has the time gone, and where the heck is Freegold? ;D A little more than two years ago, I changed format to an NFF (not-for-free) blog in order to keep me enthused and engaged, and more importantly, to keep out the trolls. I wished FOA had done that rather than quitting, so that's how I view it. I have hundreds of subscribers, and when they quit, so will I. The Freegold Speakeasy now has 100 posts and 20,000 comments.

How Gold is Different
"The present world gold market negates the true value of gold by removing the “real demand” that “gold settlement” creates! Break the mechanics of this market and you will find that gold is the most valuable currency in today’s currency arena. Many investors, today think that the answer to this dilemma is for traders to take delivery and cause a short squeeze. My friend, in this arena, taking delivery means settling in cash! No, this market will not be destroyed by anyone but itself. ...

2017 Year of Hope and Change The day I began this blog, 8/23/08, was two days before the 2008 Democratic National Convention, which nominated then-senator Barack Obama on a platform of Hope and Change. (Coincidentally (and pretty funny now in hindsight), Obama won the most delegates, but Hillary won the popular vote!): Twenty days from now, on January 20th, we'll be done with Obama's version and, Michelle's opinion notwithstanding, we'll finally get to experience some real Hope and Change,

Trump 
For eight years on this blog, I did my best to avoid politics. Then, six months ago, in The Debtors and the Savers 2016, I took a turn for the political, with sub-headings like Peak Progressivism, Trump and Peak Absurdity. Here's a bit from the Trump section: Progressives, “enlightened” academics, the media, and the mainstream political establishment all seem confounded by Trump’s popularity, but it’s really quite simple. It’s not because his supporters are all dumb racists and xenophobic redne

Eight!
Today is the eighth anniversary of this blog, but as you know, last year I moved most of my activity to a subscription blog called the Freegold Speakeasy. Anyone can join, and a subscription is only about 60 cents a day, but for those of you who don't, can't or just plain won't pay for this stuff, I'm going use this anniversary post to give you a little taste of what you've been missing. ;D One of the many topics I've been covering this year is GLD and its incredibly increasing inventory.

The Debtors and the Savers 2016 
This being the anniversary of the new Freegold Speakeasy, I wanted to write a post for both sites. And after taking stock of the current state of affairs, as well as the changes over the past year that led us to where we are today, an updated Debtors v. Savers post was the obvious choice. What I'm talking about, well… there are a lot of things that happened over the past year, but I think the main ones are the European migrant crisis which is tearing Europe apart, at least on ideological grou

2016 Year of the Fire Sale "Buy what has value at the greatest discount and wait for the politics of money to price your new savings correctly"! The politics of wealth today is centered around gold bullion and only gold bullion: that is where the wealth and power will be manifest: this is where the gains will be!

  Seven!
Seven is supposedly a special number. Seven days in the week, seven colors of the rainbow, seven notes of the musical scale, Seven Wonders of the World, seven dwarves, 007, 7-11 and so on. So surely there must be some kind of deep Freegold significance to this weekend, because today this blog turns seven! ;D Coincidentally, my hit counter turned all sevens right around the beginning of this year: In a recent poll of 30,000 people, lucky number 7 was voted most popular. But some people believe

FREEGOLD REBUTTAL: A Case For Much Higher Silver Prices
The folks at FreeGold (FOFOA) believe that when gold revalues to $45,000, silver would fall down to $1.85.  They stated this in their recent article, FOFOA: Silver Dollar.  Actually, FOFOA’s original calculation was done back in 2001, when they saw gold revaluing to $10,000 and silver down to a measly $.50.  At the time FOFOA wrote that forecast, the price of gold was $261 and silver $4.37.  These would be impressive figures, if they made any sense.  Unfortunately, the folks at FOFOA do what I c

Death and Taxes 
After operating on a fiat system for 20+ years people are starting to realize that the only thing that backs a currency is the real productive efforts of their people. Yes, over time we always borrow more than our productive efforts can pay back and proceed to crash the money system. But what else is new? (smile) We call this a money's "timeline" and it's as new an idea as life, death and taxes! Time and debt age any money system until it dies. The world moves on. Only this time gold is going

Metamorphosis Revisited
The very changes needed in our money universe, today, would kill dollar demand by devaluing all dollar assets in super higher gold prices. The debts and the dollars would remain; only 90% of their current illusion of value would vanish. Hyperinflation in prices of all wealth objects will be the workout result of this process. As such, opposing dollar political motive will force the US to give the markets what is needed; both gold and gold prices beyond imagination. -FOA (7/27/01) This pa

The Golden Phoenix
This work started back in 1988, not long after the 87 crash. Important people were asking some very serious questions about the timeline of the world monetary system. They expected a long term evolving report that would expand ongoing events into a format of true life context. I cannot offer the full report or its complete ongoing analysis. But, the effort you have seen to date is one of sharing somewhat for the common good of all. To the best of my knowledge, the ones that initiated thi

  The Big Picture 
Each day I spend an hour or two scanning the stories and memes that are circulating that day, and then maybe another hour thinking about how they fit into the big picture. Everything is, of course, connected, and aside from filtering out the nonsense and the noise, putting it all together into a single comprehensive and cohesive picture is, IMO, the only way to understand what is really happening. Without such a context, it can seem like nothing makes sense, like we live in a madhouse where i
