Angola (1991-1999) Angola went through the worst inflation from 1991 to 1995. In early 1991, the highest denomination was 50,000 kwanzas. By 1994, it was 500,000 kwanzas. In the 1995 currency reform, 1 kwanza reajustado was exchanged for 1,000 kwanzas. The highest denomination in 1995 was 5,000,000 kwanzas reajustados. In the 1999 currency reform, 1 new kwanza was exchanged for 1,000,000 kwanzas reajustados. The overall impact of hyperinflation: 1 new kwanza = 1,000,000,000 pre-1991 kwanzas.

CENTRAL BANKERS NEVER GET IT RIGHT
Central bank heads have been at it again last week. And they have clearly all been singing from the same hymn sheet. The messages have been very similar from the bosses of the Fed, ECB and BOJ. The head of the Swedish Riksbank had a different and much more interesting message. More about that later. Why should we ever listen to any of these self-important central bankers. They are consistently inaccurate in their forecasts and policies. Their timing is always wrong as they are always behind the

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

SOCIALISM – A GUARANTEED ROUTE TO HYPERINFLATION
Gold is hated by governments around the world because it reveals their deceitful actions in totally destroying the economy. It is not an accident that gold is the only money which has survived for 6,000 years. Gold is the only money that tells the truth. And gold is nature’s money which means it cannot be destroyed and it cannot be manufactured. This is why governments cannot live with gold as money for more than short periods. Because over time governments always spend more than the country ear

OWN GOLD BEFORE PANDORA REOPENS THE BOX
In the old Greek mythology, the opening of Pandora’s box unleashed many evils on the world. Within the next few years, we will see a modern Pandora’s box being opened that will lead to events in the world which will be as devastating as when the ancient box was opened. The very big difference is that this time the consequences will not be part of historical mythology. Instead they will be real and catastrophic for the whole world on a scale never experienced in history. Pandora – the all giving

I bet you’ve never read a Money Morning that began like that before. Why on earth would I want to do such a thing?

GOLD BULLION prices fell as the Dollar jumped on stronger-than-expected US inflation data Wednesday, only to recover the drop as fixed-income bond prices fell, pushing longer-term interest rates higher once more. World stock markets also sank and then rallied on the news, with Germany's Dax regaining a previous 1.0% loss by mid-afternoon in Frankfurt. Gold priced in non-US currencies also spiked

Good things happen to governments that do this, and bad things happen to those that don’t. “Stable Money” means: money that is stable in value. The traditional way to accomplish this is to link currencies to g

Ominous Musings on America – 2018
Decay and despotism invade our lives today like gangrene creeps up the limbs of a wounded soldier in the festering fields of war. Our Washington pols swagger through fulsome milieus of political putrescence and graft. Establishment pundits spew hysterical falsehoods on a daily basis. FOMC bureaucrats print fake money like mountebanks spin shell games to carnival dupes. Special counsel shysters conduct corrupted investigations to overturn the rightful will of the people.

  Some Reflexions on History and Economics 
Nicolas Oresme, a Catholic bishop (1320-1382), studied human behavior with regard to money, which in his time consisted of gold and silver coinage; he was perhaps the first to observe that humans attribute varying valuations to the money that comes into their hands. He stated that holders of gold and silver coins prefer to tender their most deteriorated coins in payments, and retain the most bright, shiny and perfect of their coins. Thus, he was the true originator of what has come to be known a

Debt to GDP: Only 4 Major Countries Worse Off Than the US
Of major nations, only Japan, Greece, Italy, and Portugal have debt-to-GDP ratios higher than the US. With the new tax overhaul, U.S. government debt will rise by one to two trillion dollars over the next decade. I view that assessment as majorly optimistic as it assumes no recession and unlikely growth. Citing IMF statistics, the Wall Street Journal reports Just Four Large Countries Have a Higher Debt Burden Than the U.S. Japan’s government carries debts at 240.3% of gross domestic product, f

2017, The Year of the Truth Bomb! (Part 1)
Here we are at the end of 2017 with more “truth bombs” released than I could have imagined!  In fact, I believe we probably received more “truth” in just one year than collectively in all of human history.  This is a sad statement because it also means we have lived behind more lies than at any time prior.  Also surprising is none individually have cracked the dam called “confidence”.  But do not be fooled as it looks as if the entire dam is moving, particularly in the last few weeks! As we have

Should you consider investing/buying Gold or Bitcoin
Recently, we have been asked by a number of clients about the precious metals and what our advice would be with regards to buying, selling or holding physical or trading positions in the metals.  There are really only a few short and simple answers to this question and they are revolve around the concept of providing a hedge against risk, capital preservation and opportunity for returns.  Let’s explore the details a bit further. First, Gold, historically, has been and will continue to be the bas

The Great Oil Swindle 
When it comes to the story we're being told about America's rosy oil prospects, we're being swindled.  At its core, the swindle is this: The shale industry's oil production forecasts are vastly overstated. Swindle:  Noun  - A fraudulent scheme or action. And the swindle is not just affecting the US.  It's badly distorted everything from current geopolitics to future oil forecasts. The false conclusions the world is drawing as a result of the self-deception and outright lies we're being told is

Europe, Brexit and the credit cycle 
Europe’s financial and systemic troubles have retreated from the headlines. This is partly due to the financial media’s attention switching to President Trump and the US budget negotiations, partly due to Brexit and the preoccupation with Britain’s problems, and partly due to evidence of economic recovery in the Eurozone, at long last. And finally, anyone who can put digit to computer key has been absorbed by the cryptocurrency phenomenon.Just because commentary is focused elsewhere does not mea

Should I Buy “Collectible” Silver The 3 Criteria to Look For
We get the same question every time we release a new proprietary GoldSilver product: why should I buy your silver round instead of a standard bullion product like an Eagle?There are several answers to that question—they can be a great way to diversify, they’re unique in the marketplace, and they might reflect values that you share.But the biggest answer of all is this: because you might make a bigger profit.That’s a bold statement, because like most things in life, there are no guarantees.
