  The US Constitution and Money 
This article outlines what the U.S. Constitution’s clauses and references to money mean. It examines constitutional money from a legal perspective. It does not examine money and banking from an ethical, economic, or political point of view. The idea is simply to set down in the clearest terms possible what kind of money is legal in the U.S., according to the Constitution, and what kind of money is not.

The Bank of England 1720-1844
we have now a bit of updating of something we looked at before: the Bank of England's balance sheet during the 18th and 19th centuries, when it was the premier institution managing a gold standard paper money system in the world. The Bank of England eventually served as the example imitated throughout the world, particularly in the latter 19th century and into the early 20th century. January

A beginner's guide to investing in Gold 
One’s motivation for buying gold is fundamental to deciding in which form you should buy it. Are you a speculator, investor or saver? Do you wish to take a short term speculative position in gold? Are you investing for the short, medium or long term? Or are you diversifying, saving or using gold as a form of financial insurance?

THE IDES OF MARCH – GOLD AT $14,463 and SILVER AT $669
THE IDES OF MARCH – GOLD AT $14,463 and SILVER AT $669 By Egon von Greyerz In the Roman calendar, the Ides of March was the same as March 15th in today’s calendar. This date was not significant until Julius Caesar was assassinated on 15 March 44BC. Shakespeare then coined the phrase “Beware of the Ides of March” in his Julius Caesar work. So will March 15, 2017 be significant. We will soon know. There are some noteworthy events taking place on March 15. The debt ceiling must be reset that day a

Ron Paul urges Arizona lawmakers to end capital gains tax on gold coins
http://tucson.com/news/ron-paul-to-az-lawmakers-end-capital-gains-tax-on... PHOENIX -- Invoking claims of illegally printed paper money, the use of gold in the Bible and even foreign entanglements, former Congressman Ron Paul urged Arizona lawmakers Wednesday to let coin collectors and investors escape the state's capital gains tax. Paul, a three-time presidential hopeful, told members of the Senate Finance Committee it's not fair or even legal from his perspective for the government to take its

WILL THE FED TELL EVERY AMERICAN TO BUY GOLD BEFORE IT DESTROYS THE DOLLAR?
Western Central Banks have a real knack for timing the sale of their gold reserves. They are absolute experts when it comes to picking the bottom of the gold market. Central banks in the UK, Switzerland and Norway, to mention a few, timed their sales to perfection. The only problem is that they all sold at the absolute bottom between 1999 and 2004. That was of course the time to buy gold and not to sell. But the Finance ministers in charge of Western economies have no understanding of economics.

“Hold Gold”: Why This Country Wants Its People to Buy Gold
This article was written by Shaun Bradley and originally published at The Anti-Media.org. Editor’s Comment: Important things are happening on the global stage with regard to the money system. It is a long game, and will take many years to fully play out. But one of those important developments involves the feverish return to gold holdings in both China and Russia, and many individuals in these societies, in India and other burgeoning world powers are also investing in gold. The reason? There is

Arizona bill would remove state tax on profit from sale of gold coins
PHOENIX, Arizona -- Arguing that federal policies have made paper money "virtually worthless," Arizona lawmakers are moving to allow residents to invest in gold coins and not have to pay state taxes on any profits they make when they sell them. Legislation awaiting a final House vote would carve an exemption in existing laws that require people to report -- and pay taxes -- on capital gains. So, if you buy art, jewelry, or an antique car for $10,000 and sell if for $12,000, you owe the state tax

No Paper, Just Plastic: Europe “Next Offensive in the War on Cash” to Force People on the Grid
This article was written by Shaun Bradley and originally published at The Anti-Media.org. Editor’s Comment: Though the various governments at play prefer to emphasize how cash would cut down on crime and terrorism, they overlook the true source of funding and facilitation for those activities. The real motive is to beat back independence, and force the future comply with real-time tracking of all their activities; have only authorized vendors and points of purchase, and to monitor all behavior.

Gold Reveals Illusory Gains
Investors in most countries make the mistake of measuring their returns based on their home market and their domestic currency. This might have worked when they only had access to their local investment market. But that time is long gone. Now we have a global economy and most Westerners have access to securities worldwide. Still, in for example Germany, the UK or Japan, investors measure returns in their local currency. Even more so in the US. Due to the size of the US economy and the importance

Thoughts on gold and humanity 
The supply of gold is largely misunderstood. According to MSM, gold supply is what is mined every year and brought to market – about 2,500 tonnes. This is a big mistake. The supply of gold is calculated at about 170,000 tonnes, made up of virtually all the gold ever mined since mankind took notice of its existence as shiny yellow pebbles in sand “placers” in riverbeds. Every ounce –every gram - of this supply is owned by someone, either a person or an institution. This brings up another point,

  Fielding my grandson’s questions about gold and banking
My grandson had quite a day at school.He had learned that the economy had been suffering from things called Panics, capital P, during the 19th century and had another big one in the early 20th century.He had been told that responsible, public-spirited men like J. P. Morgan had organized a central bank to prevent those Panics.He and other bankers finally got the government to go along with their idea and pass it into law in late 1913.And wouldn’t you know it — we’ve had no more Panics since then.

2017 – Spectacular For Gold And Silver But Disaster For Bonds And Stocks
2017 has just started but some longer-term trend changes already seem to develop. It is interesting how a new year combined with a new US president act as a catalyst for what will be the start of monumental events in the world economy. Not that many of these will come as a surprise to the readers of my articles but for the rest of the world, there will be one shock after the next which will create real panic. We are now seeing the beginning of reversals in many markets. Some of these new trends
