China’s Belt And Road To Nowhere
Moody’s Investors Service downgraded China’s credit rating recently to A1 from Aa3. The rational being that it expects the financial strength of the economy to erode, as GDP growth slows and debt levels continue to pile up. What is Beijing’s response to the slowing economy and intractable debt accumulation that was just underscored by Moody’s: issue a mountain of new debt in order to pave over 60 countries around the globe? China’s One Belt One Road (OBOR) Initiative seeks to answer the age-old

End of empire
"Already, China dominates world trade. Her own economy is already significantly larger than that of the US on the PPP estimates. While being the largest consumer of raw materials, China also exports more finished goods by value than any other country."...In last week’s Insight article, America’s Financial War Strategy, I described how the Chinese government viewed the geopolitical scene. It is clear from earlier remarks by the Peoples Liberation Army’s senior strategist, Major-General Qiao Liang

Silver: Commodity or Money 
So many articles and books have been written about gold as money, but so few about silver. However, a lot more silver has been used as money than gold, mostly because of its lower value and therefore being easier to transact for day-to-day needs.

The New Great Wall of China : Gold
By Philippe Herlin - Researcher in finance / Contributor to When the crisis hit in 2008, China’s reaction was very communist-like : instead of turning to money printing in the hope that credit and investment would pick up ( which is still the dream of Western central banks), both the central power and the regional ones have launched gigantic infrastructure plans while forcing banks to lend them money. Credit, as a result, has effectively picked up : orders from Beijing! While c

A plea for sanity 
Anarticle by Professor Lew Spellmanhas caught the attention of the sharp-eyed, and may indeed be important. Spellman, who in the past has been an economist at the Fed and served as an assistant to the Chairman of the President’s Council of Advisors, makes the point that gold is quietly becoming a core banking asset for collateral purposes, at a time when the alternative, sovereign obligations, is becoming dangerously unstable as a bedrock of value.
