On « Ulcerous government”
By the very fact of their anti-economic constitution, governments have become the ulcers of societies (“les ulcères des sociétés”), to use the strong expression coined by J.B. Say. As population and wealth increase, thanks to the progressive development [531] of competitive industries, a growing mass of vital energy is sucked out of society by the suction pump which are taxes and debts, in order to subsidise the costs of production of public services, or to put it in a better way, to subsidise the support and easy enrichment of the particular class which controls the monopoly of the production of these services.

The 200 Week Moving Average War Goes Nuclear!
Yes, I know I’m on vacation.  Not to mention, it’s still Saturday morning.  However, with Diana having taken Sylvie to see Beauty and the Beast, I want to take a few moments to give you my take on yesterday’s events – and “trading.”  Particularly, the Trump Administration’s epic political setback, in failing to convince “Freedom Caucus” Republicans to vote for the hideous Trump-Care bill.  Who in essence, called the “art of the deal” architect on his “ultimatum” to either pass the bill, or stick

Obamacare Replacement Postponed: New “Final Offer” Coming
The Obamacare replacement vote has been postponed. There are conflicting reports on when a vote will next take place. House Majority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy told CNN that House debate on the bill will start Friday morning. But a White House spokeswoman said debate will begin on Thursday night and Republicans expect to have the votes to pass it on Friday. The postponement is a sobering setback for Republicans, who aimed to approve health-care legislation before moving to other parts of their

Why free trade is officially dead
G20 Finance ministers meeting in Baden Baden last weekend agreed, on America’s insistence, to drop the long-standing commitment to free trade from the final communiqué.It is hard to know to what extent America’s position is driven by her autarkic view on world trade, or to what extent it is an acknowledgement of the fruitlessness of paying lip-service to an ideal which is never delivered. Doubtless, it’s a bit of both.It is certainly true that finance ministers in the advanced nations have alway

When the Tidal Wave Hits, Part III - Jeff Nielson

This instalment is dedicated to illustrating the political and legal devolution which has taken place across the Corrupt Wes

Two Things Government Wants Desperately to Control: Gold and People - Rory Hall
Yes, governments can steal your gold and kill the people - but that doesn’t mean they can control either. Look at what is happening in India – Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government spent 16 months trying to persuade Indians to deposit their jewelry in the bank to earn interest, in an effort to curb soaring imports of the precious metal. But the program has only lured a tiny fraction of the $900 billion of gold that families and temples are estimated to have stashed away. On the other

Why The Status Quo Is Under Increasing Attack By 'Populist People Po
Protecting The Status Quo Is Failing We need to fully appreciate yet another example of what the mainstream media doesn't yet get! The "People" increasingly don't see the system working for them anymore and have as consequence become much more willing to try something very different, possibly even extreme, depending on how serious their personal blight has become! Unorthodox politicians like Donald Trump in the US, with disruptive, non-internationalist politics are increasingly emergin

Benjamin Constant
On the Liberty of the Ancients Compared with that of the Moderns
"He loved liberty as other men love power," was the judgment passed on Benjamin Constant by a 19th-century admirer.His great public concern, all throughout his adult life, was the attainment of a free society, especially for his adopted country, France; and if a (by no means uncritical) French commentator exaggera

Frederic Bastiat (1801-1850): Between the French and Marginalist Revolutions 
CLAUDE FREDERIC BASTIAT was a French economist, legislator, and writer who championed private property, free markets, and limited government. Perhaps the main underlying theme ofBastiat's writings was that the free market was inherently a source of "economic harmony" among individuals, as long as government was restricted to the function of protecting the lives, liberties, and property of citizens from theft or aggression.

Gold Prices +3% as Fed Rate Rise Lags Inflation, Dollar Falls, Greek Debt Deadlines Loom
GOLD PRICES rose further Thursday in London, gaining almost 3% in Dollar terms since the Federal Reserve raised US interest rates as expected yesterday, and also raised its forecast for interest-rate hikes ahead. Continuing to re-invest the central bank's $4 trillion QE holdings of US Treasury bonds as they mature, the Fed's Open Market Committee now sees its key rate ending 2017 no lower than 1.4% versus 1.1% at the December meeting.

Gold Prices 'Wait See' Before Fed Rate Rise as Euro Bond Yields Ease on Dutch Election Poll
GOLD PRICES held below $1200 per ounce lunchtime Wednesday in London as the Netherlands began a raft of 2017 Eurozone elections and new monthly data showed US inflation hitting a 5-year high ahead of today's Federal Reserve decision on interest rates. Widely expected to take the Fed's key rate to a ceiling of 0.75%, the March meeting will still leave returns to savers far below the 2.7% annual pace of inflation reported by Wednesday's update

Extremes To The Extreme
It’s just one day before the Ides of March; when not one, not two, but three potentially explosive “PM bullish, everything-else-bearish” factors are “scheduled” to occur.  During which, Andrew Maguire claims the wholesale physical gold market – where the world’s largest buyers, like Central banks and sovereign funds, play – has never been tighter; with massive unseen buy orders at the $1,200/oz level.  Will this in fact “break” the paper market in the next few months, as he anticipates?  I guess

Mexico’s Earmarked Gold Bars at the Bank of England vaults
Guillermo Barba, the Mexican financial and economic journalist, has recently published an article on his website confirming that through an information request that he had made to Mexico’s central bank, Banco de México (Banxico), the central bank has now released what amounts to a relatively comprehensive list of Mexico’s gold bars held in storage at the Bank of England gold vaults in London. Mexico’s list is an inventory of wholesale market gold bars that Banixco owns and stores in custody at t

Multi-Speed Europe, Tacit Admission of Failure: Multi-Speed QA
German Chancellor Angela Merkel, a long-time adversary of the “Multi-Speed Europe” concept, has now hopped on the “multi-speed” bandwagon. Multi-speed pertains to the fact that the more members there are in the Union, the more difficult it becomes to reach consensus on various topics, and the less likely it is that all would advance at the same pace in various fields. With much fanfare, EU’s big four back ‘multi-speed’ Europe. Let’s investigate. Leaders of the EU’s four largest economies threw

Pre-Fed 'Profit-Taking' Hits Dollar on Jobs Surge, Gold Bullion Back Over $1200
GOLD BULLION bounced back above $1200 per ounce Friday lunchtime in London as the Dollar fell on what traders called 'profit-taking' following strong US jobs data ahead of next week's expected interest-rate rise from the Federal Reserve. Non-farm payrolls expanded by a much-stronger-than-expected 235,000 last month, the official estimate said, cutting the US jobless rate to 4.7% as average earnings accelerated to 2.8% annual growth.

Gold And Silver: Legal Weapons Against The Deep State - Dave Kranzler/Rory Hall
Question: Why do Central Banks and Governments hate gold? Answer: Because they can’t print it “An almost hysterical antagonism toward the gold standard is one issue which unites statists of all persuasions. They seem to sense – perhaps more clearly and subtly than many consistent defenders of laissez-faire – that gold and economic freedom are inseparable, that the gold standard is an instrument of laissez-faire and that each implies and requires the other.” – Alan Greenspan, “Gold a

The fateful date
Caesar: What sayest thou to me now? Speak once again. Soothsayer: Beware the ides of March. Caesar: He is a dreamer; let us leave him: pass. This famous advice, according to Shakespeare, was ignored with fatal consequences for Julius Caesar. Markets may be being similarly complacent ahead of this anniversary date next week. The Fed has signalled that it will raise interest rates at the FOMC’s March meeting, timed for the same day. It so happens that this fateful date coincides with the end of th
