Death Penalty for Debasing Currency: US Coinage Act of 1792 
Don't kid yourself that it couldn't happen again in this century. The serfs are waking up, and they're MAD as Hell and won't take it anymore. If bankers' heads and those of their government defenders begin appearing on the ends of pikes, you'll know why! As most of you know much of our current law was based on English case law. Hence, this was the Royal Mint's disposition of counterfeiters and forgers. The methods employed for carrying out the death penalty are appropriate even today.: SOLOM

How Cryptocurrency Will Cause The End Of Central Banks-And With Them, The Gold Cartel
Growing up in New York, my ideal “date” was to take a girl on the Long Island Railroad into Manhattan, take a subway to Greenwich Village, and browse the hippest counter-culture stores – like Flip, the Antique Boutique, Astor Place Hair-cutters, and Tower Records.  When in Tower Records, I’d often hear extremely unique music playing, and buy it on a whim – tape cassettes, not CDs.  Two such records, circa 1985, were Bryan Ferry’s “Boys and Girls” and Jean-Michel Jarre’s “Oxygene” – which is why

The Golden Revolution, Revisited
Back in 2012 John Wiley and Sons published my first book, The Golden Revolution, the core thesis of which was that a longer-term consequence of the global financial crisis of 2008 would be the remonetization of gold. This would occur initially at the international level, that is, as a mean to settle accumulated international imbalances in trade and cross-border investment. The book then also explored how this might come about, what the implications were for the price of gold and for the financia

In Emerging Markets, It's Time To Dump Most Central Banks, And Their Currencies Too
Authored by Steve H. Hanke of the Johns Hopkins University. Follow him on Twitter @Steve_Hanke. On March 16th, the New York Times carried reportage by Peter S. Goodman, Keith Bradsher and Neil Gough, which was titled “The Fed Acts. Workers in Mexico and Merchants in Malaysia Suffer.” The theme of their extensive reportage is that U.S. monetary policy is the elephant in the room. It is the elephant that swings exchange rates and capital flows to and fro in emerging-market countries, causing consi

Decentralization-The Future Of Monetary Value
Of all the things I’ve observed in my three decades of financial market watching, none baffles me more than the idiocy of the Charlie Brown-like “traders” that buy paper gold and silver contracts on the COMEX, only to have the “football” pulled out by “Cartel Lucy” time and time again. Albert Einstein put it best when he defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results”; and in my view, nothing is more insane than betting against a “house” run by the

New Gold Pool at the BIS Basle: Part 2 – Pool vs Gold for Oil
This is Part 2 of a two-part series. The series focuses on collusive discussions and meetings that took place between the world’s most powerful central bankers in late 1979 and 1980 in an attempt to launch a central bank Gold Pool cartel to manipulate and control the free market price of gold. The meetings centered around the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) in Basle, Switzerland. Part 2 takes up where Part 1 left off, and begins by looking at developments in the BIS Gold Pool discussion

‘The Everything Bubble’: Why The Coming Collapse Will Be Even Worse Than The Last
This report was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge.com The next crash is coming, and the decision by central banks to paper over their economy’s troubles with a massive injection of debt likely means that the next crash is already overdue. Soon, investors will be forced to reconcile a massive expansion of debt and falling productivity and growth with a host of potentially disruptive crises: The advent of government-sponsored cyberwarfare, followed by the collapse of the global do

Unprecedented Catastrophe
You wouldn’t know it from what I do for a living – but generally speaking, I am as optimistic a person as you will find.  Just ask anyone who knows me, regarding essentially all topics.  However, I’m also a realist, which is why I’m so good at what I do.  And given this blessing/curse, as well as relentless analysis and an inexorably logical mind, I’ve been able to forecast the economic devastation that has unfolded over the past two decades better than most – partly due to said “gifts,” but mos

  State Dept. memo explains U.S. policy to drive gold out of financial system
A long memorandum written in March 1974 by a U.S. State Department official for Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and copied to future Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker, then the Treasury Department's undersecretary for monetary affairs, describes the desire of the United States and its options to prevent European countries from increasing the use of gold in the international financial system. The memo, titled "Gold and the Monetary System: Potential U.S.-E.C. Conflict," was recently discov

Remobilize Gold To Save The World Economy!
Let me explain. Gold is the only ultimate extinguisher of debt. Other extinguishers do, of course, exist but they are not ultimate in that they have a counterpart in the liability column of the balance sheet of someone else. Gold has no such liability attached to it. Gold is where the buck stops. It is this property

James Turk: Gold, Silver and the Coming Economic Crisis - Rory Hall
Over the past three weeks, approximately 11 trading days, silver has suffered one of the longest downward spirals in a great many years and some have even argued this is the longest ever. I try not to look a gift horse in the mouth and simply use this manipulated beating to acquire more money at a more favorable exchange rate. Some people call it the “price” of silver, but in doing so the monetary history of silver is discredited and wiped from memory. This has to change; but I digress. I

Money or Wealth? 
"Gold is not money, not currency, not an investment, it is wealth." -Another _________ This is a repost from the Speakeasy: There's been a lot in the news about money lately—negative interest rates, the war on cash, the dollar shortage, Venezuela's collapsing currency—and we use that word, money, to mean so many different things that it can be confusing, so I thought it was a good time for another post on the subject. What is money, really? And what should we do to fix it? Back in 2014, I wro

America's Forgotten War Against the Central Banks
In order to pay debts incurred from the Seven Years War with France, King George III of England sought to heavily tax the colonies in America. In 1742, the British Resumption Act required that taxes and other debts be paid in gold.

Welcome to this week’s edition of “World Out Of Whack” where every Wednesday we take time out of our day to laugh, poke fun at and present to you absurdity in global financial markets in all its glorious insanity.

How Gold is Different
"The present world gold market negates the true value of gold by removing the “real demand” that “gold settlement” creates! Break the mechanics of this market and you will find that gold is the most valuable currency in today’s currency arena. Many investors, today think that the answer to this dilemma is for traders to take delivery and cause a short squeeze. My friend, in this arena, taking delivery means settling in cash! No, this market will not be destroyed by anyone but itself. ...

Gold, Silver, and the US Dollar: 1792-1971
In today's musing, I review the history of gold, silver, and fiat currency as money in the United States of America. I document how various wars, panics and depressions, Congressional acts, and executive orders have affected the US dollar prices of precious metals and resulting gold-silver ratios.This musing covers the period from 1792 when the United States government first established a national currency backed by gold and silver until

  What should the gold/silver ratio be?
The price of gold is dominated by investment demand* to such an extent that nothing else matters as far as its price performance is concerned. Investment demand is also the most important driver of silver’s price trend, although in silver’s case industrial demand is also a factor to be reckoned with. In addition, changes in mine supply have some effect on the silver market, because unlike the situation in the gold market the annual supply of newly-mined silver is not trivial relative to the exis
