Gotterdammerung
Wagner's opera Gotterdämmerung is about the twighlight of pagan gods. The most powerful of the latter-day pagan gods that has been guiding the destinies of humanity for the past two-score of years is Irredeemable Debt. Before August 14, 1971, debts were obligations, and the word "bond" was to mean literally what it said: the opposite of freedom. The privilege of issuing debt had a countervailing responsibility: that of repayment.

  Gold Bullion 
Gold bullion is a bulk form of the precious metal used for trading on commodity markets. Gold bullion is usually cast into ingots or coins.  Gold bullion, a form of gold used to make trading easy, gets its value from the relative rarity of the metal itself. Value of gold bullion is further determined by the mass and purity of the coin or ingot. Most gold bullion is issued at 99.9% purity, although some goes up to 99.999% purity. Bullion is graded by "Troy ounce" which defines the weight of gold

The fiat money quantity (FMQ) 
Summary : This paper seeks to establish a measure of currency quantity that helps economists identify and estimate the risk that confidence in fiat currencies might be significantly eroded or even vanish altogether. It is this phenomenon that was referred to in the great European currency inflations of the 1920s as Katastrophenhausse, or a crack-up boom, when ordinary people lose all confidence in a fiat currency, disposing of it as rapidly as possible instead preferring ownership of goods.This is

How the Laffer curve really works 
Kennedy declared that “it is a paradoxical that tax rates are too high and tax revenues too low”. In other words, high taxes were depressing output. Acting on this belief — what so many today sneeringly call supply-side economics — he cut taxes in 1963 and investment surged ahead. In the four years preceding the Kennedy cuts only 27.8 per cent of what is termed investment went to business and 38.5 per cent to real estate.

FOMC Minutes from 1967 Illuminating Central Bank Gold Price Suppression, Market Manipulations
The issue before us here is not so much the mechanics of deception, but the tenacity and conviction of the banking cartel to use any means to protect themselves.

What is the Spot Gold Price
What is the Spot Gold Price? When trading gold bullion, the price is usually governed by the "Spot Gold Price". This is the explicit value at which an ounce of gold is selling for on the "over the counter" market at any given point in time. Just like shares, the gold spot price changes minute-to-minute, hour-to-hour as supply and demand fluctuate. The gold spot price, also known as the "gold current price" can be affected by other influences, such as economic uncertainty, war or any other factor

Chinese gold imports – Better data, lower inflows, unanswered questions
In mid-August Reuters published a story titled ”China curbs gold imports as trade war heats up” claiming that the Chinese authorities had been ”severely restricting gold imports since May” by reducing the monthly gold import quotas that are handed out to a group of Chinese and foreign banks by China’s central bank, the People’s bank of China (PBoC). The background to gold import quotas can be read here in BullionStar’s article “Chinese Cross-Border Trade Rules on Gold“. Speaking on condition of

  Above-ground Gold Stock - How Much Is There and Why Does it Matter 
To understand the price of gold, the relevant supply is the total supply, not the new supply coming to market during the last year, week or month. The supply of gold consists of all of the supply that exists, and the relevant demand is the total demand, not the new demand coming to market during any year. For gold, there is always a large stockpile, and it never gets smaller. The vast majority of all the gold mined throughout human history still exists and is held either in bars, coins, or jewel

Why Silver Is Better Than Gold
While the surging gold price has received most of the spotlight in the market, silver will outperform the king monetary metal over the longer term.  Key fundamental factors make silver the more attractive asset and investment to own versus gold when we look closely at the data.  However, that doesn’t mean precious metals investors shouldn’t own gold.  Investors need to own both precious metals, but I believe silver will provide better returns than gold in the future.Now, there is this notion put
