Thomas Paine, Liberty's Hated Torchbearer 
When Thomas Paine's ship pulled into Baltimore harbor on October 30, 1802, a large gathering of friends and admirers were waiting at dockside to welcome him back. Others stood by as well, some filled with loathing, merely to observe a famous figure.

  The full guide to Nazi gold and currency war 
This morning’s papers and news-shows are full of the story that in 1939 the Bank of England facilitated the sale of Nazi looted gold, not just once but at least twice during that year. Both times without approval of the British government, despite an attempt to freeze Czech assets. The story of Nazi gold is both fascinating and tragic. We take a look at ‘the greatest robbery of all time’ and draw parallels with the modern day gold migration. What is Nazi gold? Nazi gold is a phrase that refers t

Bitcoin Was Only The Beginning…
Upset that you missed the boat on the bitcoin craze last year? Millionaires were minted overnight as bitcoin returned 1,700 percent in 2017, only to see prices crash by more than half since December. The bubble seems to have popped, and not everyone got out in time. While we may be past the peak temporarily, the cryptocurrency trend is just getting started, and investor enthusiasm is still growing by the day.

Is This The No.1 Blockchain Stock For 2018
Cryptocurrencies are minting new millionaires faster than any other asset class in history have. Period. Blockchain, the backbone of cryptocurrency and expected to become the biggest market disrupter ever, is creating incredible wealth for some investors and generating massive returns. A $1,000 investment in Bitcoin in 2010 would have earned you $35 million by mid-2017, although that would have dropped back a bit since then. FOMO (fear of missing out) is an epidemic at this point, but most inves

Brexit – the battle for ideas
The battle for ideas in the Brexit debate comes down to two basic economic approaches. The neo-Keynesian macroeconomists in the permanent establishment, who manage the state as economic planners and regulators are on one side. They are naturally sympathetic with the policies and ideals of their EU counterparts. Against them are those who argue that in economics free markets must have primacy over the state.It is turning out to be a modern rerun of the socialist calculation debate. In a communist

Game Changer
The last couple of days have been tumultuous and this is reflected by the headlines in the media. In an article on the website of The Guardian, we read: Bitcoin has all the hallmarks of a classic speculative bubble and even after almost halving in value in a matter of weeks it still has further to fall, according to a leading team of economists. As regulators in South Korea again signalled on Thursday that they were considering a ban on cryptocurrency exchanges, Capital Economics also dismissed

The Brexit chicken game 
At last, there are signs a sense of reality is dawning on the EU’s negotiators about the futility of trying to force the UK to agree to a divorce settlement before talking about trade. However, there are still vestiges of a hope that Britain won’t leave the EU after all. Donald Tusk, the current European Council President, indicated it was still an option as recently as this week, but these hopes are wishful thinking.It has taken thinly-veiled threats from the UK to leave without a deal, unless

EU Shocked to Discover UK May Walk Away With No Deal
The EU now faces the shocking discovery that the UK is not Greece, the EU does not hold all the cards, and the UK is able and willing to simply walk away from ever-escalating EU demands. Bloomberg reports U.K. Threatens to Quit Brexit Talks If It Faces Massive Bill. The U.K. will quit Brexit talks unless the European Union drops its demands of a divorce payment of 100 billion euros ($112 billion), Brexit Secretary David Davis said. Britain’s negotiations on leaving the EU would otherwise be plu

Update on Brexit
This article looks at the background to Brexit negotiations and concludes that Britain is negotiating from a position of strength, while the EU is increasingly in a position of financial difficulty. Not only will the European Commission be forced to scale back its spending and redistribution of resources, but the euro project is threatened by capital flight between member states, despite the early signs of economic recovery which should be restoring market confidence. Politicking aside, pressure

Bank of England releases new data on its gold vault holdings
An article in February on BullionStar’s website titled “A Chink of Light into London’s Gold Vaults?” discussed an upcoming development in the London Gold Market, namely that both the Bank of England (BoE) and the commercial gold vault providers in London planned to begin publishing regular data on the quantity of physical gold actually stored in their gold vaults. Critically, this physical gold stored at both the Bank of England vaults and the commercial London vaults underpins the gargantuan tr

The decline and fall of the EU
This article identifies the headwinds faced by the EU in the wake of Brexit.Without the UK, not only does the EU lose much of its importance on the world stage, but the Commission’s budget is left with an enormous hole. That is the decline. The fall is well under way, with capital flight significantly worse than generally realised, as a proper understanding of TARGET2 imbalances shows. Not only is the ECB running out of options, but without major support from Germany, France and Italy, Brussels

BIS Blames ECB for Rising Target2 Imbalances: Fear of Default
In the latest BIS Quarterly Review, the BIS points a finger at the ECB for rising Target2 imbalances. That sounds highly accusatory, but the BIS also claims this is a “benign by-product of the decentralized implementation of the asset purchase program (APP) rather than as a sign of renewed capital flight.” I strongly disagree that any of this is “benign” unless and until someone can tell me precisely how Italy, Spain, Greece, etc., are supposed to pay back the claims. From the BIS (this is comp

IT WILL ALL GO HORRIBLY WRONG
IT WILL ALL GO HORRIBLY WRONG By Egon von Greyerz To own gold is not climbing a wall of worry. For anyone who understands the problems that the world is now facing, physical gold ownership gives peace of mind and the best insurance that money can buy. So why is less than 0.5% of world financial assets invested in gold and gold stocks? There are several reasons for this. Firstly, 100 years of massive credit expansion and money printing have mainly inflated the asset classes that investors underst
