  The Truth About War and the State 
Not long ago I was thinking about the legacy of Murray N. Rothbard, the brilliant scholar and the creator of the libertarian movement, as well as a dear friend to both Ron and me. Would that movement have come into existence without Murray? I don’t think so. And whatever might have developed in its place would undoubtedly have been less pro-peace, and more willing to reach an accord with the warfare st

Outlook for the dollar price of gold
Now that gold has become overbought on Comex, the price is vulnerable to being trashed, yet again, by the too-big-to-fail banks. It is a familiar operation in gold futures markets, where speculators buying contracts protect themselves with stop-losses.All the TBTF banks need is a pause in the speculator’s buying and a little good news (bad for gold). Ideally, the active contract will be running into maturity, so the speculators are forced to put up or shut up: in other words, sell the contract,

The Suncor Story
This article is largely the text of a presentation I recently gave for the launch of my latest book.  The well-attended event took place at the Glenbow Museum in Calgary.  The image above is a map of Alberta’s oil sands, and its purpose is to orient you geographically to the oil sands themselves. I have registered the book as a Canada 150 publication, so it sports that logo. In global terms, the oil sands are the world’s second-largest petroleum resource. Only Venezuela has more bitumen

Gold Prices Drop 0.5 After Comex Net Long Doubles 10-Year Average But Irma + N.Korea Risks Recede
GOLD PRICES fell from last week's 12-month highs on Monday morning in London as the Dollar rebounded and global stocks hit new highs after Hurricane Irma was downgraded to a 'storm' and the weekend passed without North Korea testing any nuclear weapons to mark its national foundation day, writes Steffen Grosshauser at BullionVault. Spot gold bullion retreated to $1335 per ounce after reaching above $1356 on Friday, while the US Dollar Index clim

Gold, Blockchain Technology and Belt Road Initiative - Rory Hall
Most people reading this are well aware of the fact that China and Russia have been acquiring gold for the past several years. Russia just added another 12.44 tons, in July 2017, to their continually growing gold hoard. China, on the other hand, has not added a single ounce of gold to their “official” gold hoard since October 2016. China, instead, has been adding gold mines to their increasing resources hoard. Why add a few tons each month to your gold hoard when you can acquire productive

Gold Prices 'Probe Key $1356 Level' But Fall for Non-Dollar Investors
GOLD PRICES fell below $1350 per ounce Friday lunchtime in London, cutting the metal's weekly Dollar gain to 1.7% and heading for a loss against other major currencies after touching a new 12-month high for US investors at what some chart analysts called a key level. The Euro rose back to its strongest Dollar value since January 2015, peaking just shy of $1.21, while the Chinese Yuan hit USD levels last seen in December that year.

Will Gold Break Out of Sideway Trading?
Since July 11, gold has been in a short-term upward trend. The yellow metal has gained more than 8 percent since then until the end of August, mainly thanks to the depreciation of the U.S. dollar, as one can see in the chart below. Chart 1: Gold prices (yellow line, left axis, London P.M. fix) and the U.S. dollar index (red line, right axis, trade weighted index against major currencies).

The Sun Just Erupted: Blackouts Reported After Huge Solar Flare
The sun just released a massive solar flare. In fact, this is the largest solar flare emitted in the past decade, and the earth has already been affected by blackouts. NASA has reported a huge solar flare was emitted by the Sun and it is the most powerful one since 2006.  This solar flare has already caused some radio blackouts on Earth and it may cause aurora visible as far south as London.  On the morning of September 6, scientists watched as two X-flares were unleashed by the sun.

Gold Prices Slip vs. Euro as ECB Holds Rates + QE, Fall vs. Loonie as BoC Hikes
GOLD PRICES in London rose back towards 12-month highs above $1340 in Dollar terms on Thursday morning but slipped versus the Euro as the European Central Bank left its negative interest rates and €60 billion per month QE bond-buying scheme untouched. The Bank of Canada yesterday raised its key interest rate for the second time in 2 months, hiking to 1% and calling the country's second quarter annual GDP growth of 4.5% " broadly base

  Gold Price Not 100 About Real Rates. But Close
Nor 100% about the Dollar. Just in time for Goldman Sachs to catch on... NICE to see Goldman Sachs spotting what matters 3 months late. "It is tempting to blame the rally in gold prices on recent events in North Korea," says a note from the US investment bank's commodities team under Jeffrey Currie.

The Forking Paradise
A month ago, we wrote about the bitcoin fork. We described the fork: Picture a bank, the old-fashioned kind. Call it Acme (sorry, we watched too much Coyote and Road Runner growing up). A group of disgruntled employees leave. They take a copy of the book of accounts. They set up a new bank across the street, Wile E Bank. To win customers, they say if you had an account at Acme Bank, you now have an account at Wile, with the same balance! This fork came about from a disagreement among the bitcoin

A Massive Surge In GLD "Inventory" - Craig Hemke
Yesterday saw the 2nd-largest one day surge in GLD "inventory" in the past five years. What does this signal, if anything at all? I think most everyone here knows how I feel about the GLD. It's a scam. It's a sham and it's a fraud. Oh sure, there's almost certainly some gold held in the HSBC vaults but how much is truly, 100% allocated to just the GLD? Recall the whole charade from back in 2011 when Bob Pissonme of CNBS was allegedly driven in circles for hours before being allowed into t

Marcos' widow claims massive gold deposits in 177 banks in 72 countries
Way back in 2009, former first lady Imelda Marcos told this columnist and three other newsmen that her family's wealth, most of it in gold kept in 177 banks abroad, is enough to rehabilitate the Philippines and lift Filipinos from poverty. A big question is how to bring back the
