Geological Catastrophes Waiting to Happen or TEOTWAWKI 
3rd Stone from the Sun (Jimi Hendrix and Chad Chandler, 1967): Hendrix: Star fleet to scout ship, please give your position. Over. Chandler: I am in orbit around the third planet of star known as Sun. Over. Hendrix: May this be Earth? Over. Chandler: Positive. It is known to have some form of intelligent species. Over. Hendrix: I think we should take a look. Throughout its 4.5 billion year history, the geology of the Earth has created an environment that allows life to thrive or causes it to die.

The Never-Ending Wars of the United States of America
A Monday Morning Musing from Mickey the Mercenary Geologist"War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small 'inside' group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefi

  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

Silver as a Strategic Metal and Why Prices Will Soar 
The arguments in favor of silver as an investment asset are growing rapidly. In the opinion of the Jackass, silver is the most under-valued hard asset in existence, with the highest potential for price appreciation on the globe. To begin with, central banks own no silver, but do own huge tracts of gold. Industry has huge demand for silver, but a trifling amount for gold demand. The investment demand is another key factor in favor of silver, but also for gold. Ever since the tech telecom bust in

What Drove WTI Above $60
WTI briefly broke above $60 per barrel on news that a pipeline in Libya exploded, knocking a sizable portion of supply offline. The oil pipeline carries crude oil to the Es Sider oil export terminal, Libya’s largest, raising fears of a dramatic supply outage. Early reports suggest that the explosion was the result of an attack by militants, although the precise cause was unclear. However, Libya’s National Oil Company said that the incident will curtail output by 70,000 to 100,000 bpd – not a tri

Egon von Greyerz - Matterhorn AM
What will happen between now and 2025? Nobody knows of course but I will later in this article have a little peek into the next 4-8 years. The concentration of wealth in the world has now reached dangerous proportions. The three richest people in the world have a greater wealth than the bottom 50%. The top 1% have a wealth of $33 trillion whilst the bottom 1% have a debt $196 billion. The interesting point is not just that the rich are getting richer and the poor poorer. More interesting is to

Venezuelan Women Turn To Prostitution To Afford Food
All twelve women who work at the “Show Malilo Night Club” brothel in Arauca, Colombia are from Venezuela. As Venezuela’s socialist economic crisis continues, many Venezuelan women have turned to the sex trade in neighboring Colombia to eat and provide for their families. “We’ve got lots of teachers, some doctors, many professional women and one petroleum engineer,” brothel owner Gabriel Sánchez said of the women who sell their bodies for $25 an hour.  “All of them showed up with their degrees in

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

Is Gold Real Money In the U.S. Canada it is!
Benjamin Franklin, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, coined the phrase “Time is Money”.  Fortunately for owners of precious metal currency coins produced by the Royal Canadian Mint and the U.S. Mint, they own money as well. They are both considered legal tender with a Government face value! There are laws enacted by both countries to enhance the ownership value for these types of coins. What does that mean to you? Protection is the first thing that enters my mind as an owner of p

The Secret Wealth Of The World's Richest Oil Billionaires
A policy of nationalizing chunks of an economy inevitably creates oligarchs who skim profits off the country's natural resources. As such, you won't be surprised to learn that the largest energy companies in the world are owned and operated by governments, and they include: Saudi Aramco, Russian Gazprom, China National Petroleum Corp. (CNPC), National Iranian Oil Co., Petroleos de Venezuela, Brazil's Petrobras and Malaysia's Petronas. How they're run varies wildly—as does w

The Myth of Gold Confiscation
If we experience a debt crisis, as many economists believe is inevitable, many people believe that their holdings of gold and silver bullion will be confiscated, just as in 1933. This article reviews the probability of confiscation and compares it to other more likely measures to generate government solvency. An appropriate starting point when addressing concerns about gold confiscation is to define the word 'confiscation.' Merriam Webster says 'to seize or buy as if by authority' and

Expect Third Election in Spain: Rajoy Blows Any Coalition Chance With Graft Appointee
Any hope of Rajoy securing a coalition or even a minority government via abstention flew out the window today. Rajoy had secured the backing of Ciudadanos on the premise Rajoy would clean up corruption. But moments after the last coalition vote, which failed, Rajoy’s economy minister attempted to appoint a corrupt and disgraced colleague to a lucrative position at the World Bank. Accusations have been ongoing ever since, and today things blew up in Spanish parliament in a very heated debate. Pl
