Will Others Realize What The Iranians Have Discovered About Gold
For folks like Ben Bernanke, Warren Buffett, and Mark Cuban, who publicly act as if they are completely perplexed by why anybody would have any interest in gold, perhaps they would be well served to notice the recent developments in Iran. Where in the face of a rapidly declining currency, many are turning to gold. “Iranians are hoarding gold as a safeguard against a collapsing local currency and soaring cost of living as the U.S. is poised to

FIVE MYTHS ABOUT THE GOLD STANDARD (Part I) - Ron Paul Cong. Larry McDonald 
Americans are for the most part ignorant of the gold 'standard' envisioned by Ron Paul. Before the 'unenlightened ones' lend an ear to the quacks and frauds that'll twist and spin what Ron Paul proposes, best you read this 1981 congressional tract of his from 1981. A Gold Coin Exchange Standard is what he is suggesting. Under such a system, the Federal Reserve Notes would compete for gold in our markets as a medium of exchange.  F

Then, As Now, Silver's Course Dangerous To Predict
Looking for something different to read during my midday break today, I visited The Perth Mint’s library and came across “Messrs.Mocatta andGoldsmid’s Circular on the Movements of Gold and Silver during 1913”, an Appendix to the British Royal Mint’s 1913 Annual Report. Silver investors will find this circular of 100 years ago of interest as Messrs.

Gold Company Makes Huge Blunder By Investing In U.S. Shale Assets
Something took place in the gold industry that I thought would never happen.  In a stunning press release, Franco-Nevada Gold announced that it was taking a financial stake in U.S. shale energy assets.  Why on earth is one of the top gold royalty companies investing in an industry in which it has no expertise… especially in the shale oil industry??Furthermore, didn’t Franco-Nevada Chairman Pierre Lassonde read about how BHP Billiton lost tens of billions of dollars investing in U.S. shale assets

The Ghost of Fort Knox Past: Part 3 
We’ve been looking into an extremely complex and controversial issue over the past two weeks. Does Ft. Knox contain the historical gold it claims? Gold no longer backs our circulating money. Still, those who hold fiduciary responsibilities to safeguard our gold are the ones who actually do issue our money. If you can’t trust them with the gold, how can you trust them with the money?

FDR: The Great Gold Confiscator Speaks *audio*
It's hard to imagine a greater theft from the American people than their personal gold savings.  This stolen gold was then exchanged to foreign bankers for irredeemable paper dollars. The continuing thievery by the Federal Reserve of American's productivity by debt and inflation continues unabated to impoverish and enslave us. Published by Charleston Voice FDR: THE GREAT GOLD CONFISCATOR Advancing Tyranny under a cover of "patriotism" and "sacrifice". Using the theme of a "caring go

  The Fiasco of Fiat Money 
I. Today's worldwide paper-, or "fiat-," money regime is an economically and socially destructive scheme — with far-reaching and seriously harmful economic and societal consequences, effects that extend beyond what most people would imagine. Fiat money is inflationary; it benefits a few at the expense of many others; it causes boom-and-bust cycles; it leads tooverindebtedness; it corrupts society's morals; and it will ultimately end in a depression on a grand scale.

Gold coins: The Vienna Philharmonic
The Vienna Philharmonic has been minted by the Austrian Mint "Münze Österreich AG" since 1989. After Great Britain, Austria was the second state in Europe to start producing an official gold coin. Until 1991 the coin was minted in one ounce and quarter ounce versions. Due to the great sales success, a tenth-ounce coin was released in 1991, which was followed by a half-ounce in 1994.

Commodity Prices in US Dollars 1831-1881, Gold @US$20.67 
All prices for all commodities were remarkably stable during this period in which gold was fixed at US$20.67 per ounce by the US Treasury from the time of our country's founding. Gold remained at that price until Congress surrendered its authority to the Federal Reserve in 1913. So, an ounce of gold would have exchanged for 20 silver dollars. This means of commerce would have been accurately termed a "Gold Coin Exchange Standard", and NOT a "gold standard", as the money was in the hands of the p

Refinery and Product Accreditation
To trade efficiently, market participants need to agree on standards for the products they deal in. In addition to agreeing where the product they will trade will be located (eg COMEX gold must be in a warehouse in New York) and in what form (eg COMEX bars must weigh 100oz), market participants need to agree on which manufacturers they will accept product from. This is the purpose of accreditation. In the precious metals markets it is the refiners that are accredited, as refiners are the first p

The Gold Standard
According to Mises, money’s function as a medium of exchange is thus the central one, while its store of value and unit of account functions are merely subordinate functions. I would say store of value and unit of account is what makes the medium of exchange marketable. The medium of exchange has to be simple to understand, not only by educated people but also the most uneducated. It has to be easily accessed, not only in ideal circumstances but also in difficult ones. Many things have been trie

Is Money Created by Government Decree
According to popular view people accept money because of a government decree.1 A government decree it is argued makes a particular thing accepted as a general medium of exchange. But, does it make sense?Demand for a good arises from its perceived benefit. For instance, people demand food because of the nourishment it offers them. It is different with money people demand it not for direct use in consumption but in order to exchange it for other goods and services.Money is not useful in itself, bu
